Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He played through the injury last week and was able to get in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. There's been nothing to suggest that Bryant is in danger of missing Sunday's game. We'll find out his official status by noon ET.

The 49ers have listed TE Vernon Davis (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He didn't practice all week, though, and seems like a long shot to play. TE Vance McDonald (knee) is in the same boat as Davis -- questionable after not practicing this week. Look for former undrafted free agent TE Derek Carrier to draw the Week 3 start. He hauled in 3 of 4 targets for 41 yards last week. Despite a plus matchup, though, Carrier is just a desperation fantasy option.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 17:33
Lions DE Ziggy Ansah returned for a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Ansah finished the Week 2 game against the Panthers despite sustaining the knee injury that has cost him most of this practice week. The Lions haven't provided many details on Ansah's injury, so we'll be watching his game status come Sunday. There will certainly be safer options available in your IDP league.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 17:17
Patriots LB Jamie Collins is questionable for the 2nd week in a row because of a thigh injury. We're optimistic for Collins' chances to play, though. He finished last week not practicing but put in limited workouts all week this time. The Patriots, of course, notoriously list half their roster as "questionable" at times. We'll keep an eye on his status Sunday morning. If Collins is active, though, use him in your IDP league against the Raiders.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan had his existing 4-game PED suspension lifted under the new league drug policy but will still miss 4 more games. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Jordan drew a new 4-game suspension for a substance-abuse violation. “I am currently undergoing treatment to address my situation,” Jordan said in a statement. “I am working hard to become a better man and to make better choices in the future." Let's hope Jordan's treatment consists of his mom slapping the back of his head and shouting, "Grow up!" If the team is truly still supporting Jordan, then he remains a promising long-term IDP prospect. But it's tough to expect regular fantasy contributions after he returns to the team Oct. 20. Olivier Vernon remains a solid -- if not special -- right DE.

Texans S D.J. Swearinger is questionable for Sunday's visit to the Giants. He hyperextended his elbow in the Week 2 win over Oakland. Swearinger put in limited practices all week, and we'd bet on him playing Week 3. But we'll obviously keep an eye on the game status for the emergent IDP contributor.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 15:53
The Chiefs have ruled S Eric Berry out for the Week 3 visit to Miami. The ankle he sprained in Week 2 has kept him out all week. Berry's absence certainly won't hurt the upside of the Miami pass offense, which already looked attractive for fantasy football purposes this week.

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who is on the injury report with a sprained ankle, practiced with the starters on Friday, but coach Andy Reid wasn't certain how much, if any, Charles will be able to play on Sunday against Miami. Charles was listed as questionable for the game. "We're going to see how he feels after this practice," Reid said. "He moved around and did a decent job. He looked a little sore, but he did OK." (Kansas City Star)
FF Today's Take: We'll get a better indication of Charles' availability if he makes the trip to Miami tomorrow. If so, and he becomes a gametime decision, fantasy owners may be in a bind since the Chiefs play at 4:25 Eastern. Knile Davis would get the start and be a borderline RB1 if Charles doesn't play.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 12:58
Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Insider Liz Matthews isn't even sure Michael will be active, though. And if he is, he'll be the #3 RB behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin. Michael obviously isn't a Week 3 fantasy option.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 12:36
Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He was limited in practice all week. This is likely a case of Bill Belichick’s injury-report games. Go ahead and pencil Vereen into fantasy lineups, and check back Sunday morning to make sure he’s active.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 12:34
Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. We’ve heard no indication that he’s in danger of missing this one, but check back Sunday morning to make sure he’s active.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 12:31
Raiders WR Rod Streater (hip) returned to a limited practice on Friday. He’s listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots. We’ll find out Streater’s status by noon ET on Sunday, but he won’t be a recommended fantasy option if he plays.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 12:28
Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’d avoid the Oakland backfield if Jones-Drew is active. If not, Darren McFadden will be a low-end RB3 or flex.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 12:08
Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday. It’s a surprise after he was expected to be sidelined a couple weeks. Austin is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys but won’t be a recommended fantasy play if active.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 11:45
Cardinals HC Bruce Arians announced that RB Jalen Parmele will replace RB Jonathan Dwyer as the short-yardage back. That's not enough to make Parmele a fantasy option but also means RB Stepfan Taylor's role won't increase much. It's unclear what the backfield would look like if RB Andre Ellington went down. We wouldn't bother rostering Taylor or Parmele.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 11:37
Cardinals HC Bruce Arians named QB Drew Stanton his starter for Sunday's game against the 49ers. QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) remained limited in practice all week and didn't throw much. There's still no timetable for his return. Stanton isn't a fantasy option and is a downgrade for WR Michael Floyd. Stanton favored short passes to WR Larry Fitzgerald in his Week 2 start.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 11:28
Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Browns. He popped up on the injury report on Thursday and was limited in practice. There’s been no indication that Pierce is in danger of sitting out Week 3, but check back Sunday morning to make sure he’s active.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 11:09
Redskins HC Jay Gruden admitted that WR DeSean Jackson's snaps will be limited if he plays against the Eagles on Sunday. "He won't get 80 plays," Gruden said. "May get 20-30." That's not enough to make D-Jax a quality fantasy play. He should be on benches for Week 3. WRs Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant should pick up extra snaps on Sunday, but look for WR Pierre Garcon and TE Niles Paul to lead the way in targets.
Draft Sharks - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 11:05
Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Giants. He was limited in practice all week. This could just be a case of Houston playing it safe with Foster, who leads the NFL with 55 carries. We’re expecting him to play Sunday, and we’ll find out for sure by noon ET. Foster owners can add insurance in RB Alfred Blue, who would likely serve as the lead back if Foster is out.
