9/23:Gary Barnidge has been disappointing so far this season, catching just four passes for 37 yards through the first two weeks. Barnidge will catch passes from his third quarterback in as many weeks against the Dolphins in Week 3 as the Browns will start rookie Cody Kessler. There is some hope for a decent performance from Barnidge this weekend as rookie quarterbacks tend to rely on their tight ends to complete short, safe passes, but it is really hard to envision Barnidge (or the offense in general) having much upside against Miami. He's nothing more than a TE2 this week and can be benched if you have a better option.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
9/23:Duke Johnson's first two games of 2016 have been disappointing, with the second-year back seeing just 13 touches so far this year. He hasn't been the factor he was expected to be in the passing game and could be set up for another disappointing game in Week 3 against the Dolphins. The Browns will be starting rookie Cody Kessler, who is not quite ready for game action. As a result, expect the offense to lean more on the conservative side, meaning Isaiah Crowell will probably see a heavy workload in between the tackles. Johnson may see some short passes from Kessler, but he should be left on the bench going forward until he produces on the field.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
9/23:Isaiah Crowell has been productive so far in 2016, rushing for 195 yards and two touchdowns through the first two weeks of the season. He gets a plus matchup against a Dolphins defense that just coughed up 123 yards and a touchdown to LeGarrette Blount in Week 2. Furthermore, with the Browns being forced to start rookie Cody Kessler, look for the team to lean on the ground game a good deal more than usual in attempts to protect the rookie signal caller. Crowell shapes up as a low-end RB2 in all formats this weekend and can be started with confidence.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
9/23:Terrelle Pryor could be the Browns' top targeted receiver after rookie Corey Coleman broke his hand in practice on Wednesday. Pryor has a matchup against a burnable Miami secondary, although it may not matter with rookie Cody Kessler making his first career start. Pryor has generally been targeted on intermediate to deep routes this season, but that may not be part of the playbook this weekend if Hue Jackson elects to run a conservative offense to protect Kessler. Pryor shapes up as nothing more than a boom/bust WR4 this weekend.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
9/23:Cody Kessler will be pressed into service on Sunday against the Dolphins due to injuries to Josh McCown and Robert Griffin. Surely the Browns were hoping to keep Kessler off the field in a developmental year for the third-round pick, but the mounting injuries have forced their hand. Journeyman quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was signed off the street earlier in the week and will serve as the team's backup quarterback. Playing without Corey Coleman, one of his most explosive weapons, Kessler is nothing more than a QB3 this week and should be avoided in all formats.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
9/23:Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) fully participated in Thursday's practice. Lockett appears to be on the fast track to playing on Sunday. He has a moderate matchup in Week 3 against a San Francisco 49ers defense that is ranked 15th in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to the wide receiver position giving up an average if 23.2 FPPG over a two-game span. Lockett has averaged six targets per contest so far in 2016 and is second on the team in that category to Doug Baldwin's 8.5. Lockett should be considered as a low-end WR3 in Week 3.--Anthony C - RotoBallerSource: Bob Condotta on Twitter
9/23:Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) did not participate in practice on Thursday. As of this writing, Rawls' injury state should be monitored closely as well as his participation in Friday's practice session to receive a better determination of his playing status for Week 3. Head coach Pete Carroll already indicated that Rawls was on track to play on Sunday, but it doesn't appear that way. The second-year rusher is a risky fantasy start if he does in fact dress against the San Francisco 49ers as he will likely play second fiddle to a budding Christine Michael. Through two games, Michael appears to be the most reliable running back on the Seahawks and is slowly eating away at Rawls' touches and his fantasy value.--Anthony C - RotoBallerSource: Bob Condotta on Twitter
9/23:Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) practiced in full on Thursday. Baldwin was a full participant during Thursday's practice and appears that he will be a full-go for Week 3's matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Baldwin should be considered as a mid-range WR2 this week facing a 49ers defense that is ranked 15th in the NFL in fantasy points allowed versus the wide receiver position giving up an average of 23.2 FPPG through two games. That being said, Baldwin is still a risky fantasy start as his statistical output rides primarily on the health of Russell Wilson's ailing ankle.--Anthony C - RotoBallerSource: Bob Condotta on Twitter
9/23:Kicker Connor Barth still has to hear fans call out for his replacement Robbie Gould each week, something that won't get better if he keeps missing field goals as he did on this past Monday. With the Chicago offense struggling as a whole, there hasn't been enough work for him to go blowing any of his kicks. The Bears will face the Cowboys Sunday in a matchup tiled way out of Barth's favor. Not only are the Bears' suffering for multiple injuries on both sides of the ball, the possible lack of Jay Cutler and Alshon Jeffery give this team little hope of scoring any points any way. Barth should be replaced as soon as possible on all teams stuck with him.--Tony Peters - RotoBaller
9/23:It shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that the #3 wide receiver on any team isn’t valuable in fantasy. Despite Arizona’s high-powered vertical offense, this rule holds true for Jaron Brown and John Brown, who both split time as the Cardinals’ #3 wideout. Through two weeks, neither receiver has had a particularly good game - in their four combined games, they’ve totaled five catches for 128 yards and a score, which would be a decent week if it weren’t divided between two receivers playing two games. Facing a Bills defense that should allow a few passing touchdowns, it’s not entirely unlikely one of John or Jaron Brown will score a touchdown, but neither will produce consistent or big enough fantasy owners to justify owning them, even as a bye-week fillin. For those who still own John Brown, it appears Jaron Brown is the closest receiver to the #3 spot, and John Brown should be dropped for him if you intend to own the Cardinals’ third best receiver, who should only be valuable in case of an injury.--Jack Harris - RotoBaller
9/23:Wide receiver Eddie Royal has proven to be a steady veteran presence on a team working in a talent but underexperienced young receiver in Kevin White. Through two games so far this year, Royal has caught 8-of-12 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, mostly thrown from injured quarterback Jay Cutler. This might be the only matchup on the Bears' offensive that is made worse with Brian Hoyer taking over as pass-caller Sunday as Cutler and Royal have a great on-field relationship. But with Alshon Jeffery questionable with a knee injury, Royal could be the focal point of this offensive Sunday, giving him high-end WR3, low-end WR2 status.--Tony Peters - RotoBaller
9/23:Running back Jeremy Langford has been able to score touchdowns in both of his team's games this year, but his yardage totals have left quite a bit to be desired. He enters the Bears' Week 3 matchup against the Cowboys with a chance to see his touches cranked up as his team is facing quarterback questions going into Sunday. Unfortunately, they will come against a Dallas team that has been one of the harder teams to run against so far. There's also the issue of backup Jordan Howard, who has impressed enough in Week 2 and the following practices to possibly cut into Langford's touches with fellow backup Ka'Deem Carey missing practice Thursday with a hamstring injury. Langford still has a lot of 2016 fantasy potential, he just won't see it realized here.--Tony Peters - RotoBaller
9/23:Tight end Zach Miller has been a disappointment so far this season as he's been left out of the Bears' struggling offensive too often. After his first two games, he has only been targeted nine times, catching seven of them for 47 yards and no touchdowns. With there being a couple of underowned tight end options making claims for fantasy relevance, it is already hard to recommend starting Miller over most of the league's starting tight ends. With a Week 3 matchup against the Cowboys and no idea who is going to be throwing the ball to him, Miller is at the bottom of the tight end top-30 this week.--Tony Peters - RotoBaller
9/23:With the team's starting quarterback and star wide receiver unsure if they can take the field Sunday against the Cowboys, wide receiver Kevin White is going to need to help pick up the slack. After the first two games of the season, he has seven catches on 13 targets for 70 yards as the entire Bears' offensive have struggled as a unit. While his team hasn't decided on a quarterback for Sunday, White owners should hope it's Brian Hoyer, who certainly can't be any worse than Cutler has been so far. Regardless of who's throwing the passes, White is a low-end WR3 at the very most until he shows us more.--Tony Peters - RotoBaller
9/23:Star wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was limited in practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, but when things "didn't go as well" overnight, he was fully kept out of practice Thursday. If Jeffery isn't able to go Sunday against the Cowboys, he'll miss a prime opportunity to put up big fantasy points as he has a history of solid production against Dallas. With Bears' head coach John Fox saying he won't decide if Cutler will miss Sunday's game until just before kickoff, expect the same in-the-dark treatment with Jeffery. Be sure to check back Sunday morning to see if he needs to be benched or not.--Tony Peters - RotoBaller
