Below is a running live Breaking News report, which will be updated throughout the entire day on Sunday (Week 2). Have a great Sunday morning/afternoon everyone!
Breaking News: Week 2
NEWS: According to reports, Tony Romo has likely suffered a broken collarbone.
Fantasy: This will likely have the passer out for the season, or at least 8 weeks, depending on the severity of the injury. With Dez Bryant out potentially longer than 6-8 weeks, the Cowboys are in trouble. If you have some depth you may never use, consider making an offer for Dez so that you can stash him on your bench. While there is tons to worry about, him getting healthy, not having Romo, etc, he is still a great player to stash if you can get a low-risk deal done. Some looking to win now in dynasty might also sell-low on Dez, so take a stab there as well.
NEWS: According to reports, Carlos Hyde was cleared after being taken to the locker room with a possible Week 2 concussion.
Fantasy: It appears Hyde will be fine for Week 3 – for now. Be sure to stay glued to Smart Alerts and your logged in Starters homepage, as we will surely address any big injuries via a Player Spotlight.
NEWS: Matt Jones ran for 123 yards and 2TDs on 19 carries in Week 2. He also pulled in 3 receptions for 23 yards.
Fantasy: Beast! He wasn’t #13 on our 2015 Breakout Upside Board for nothing. Congrats to all who own this guy, especially in dynasty. He has some serious talent and clearly looks like the future of that Washington rushing attack. We will let you know what’s going on with Alfred Morris when we know more.
NEWS: According to reports, C.J. Spiller (knee) is in fact active for Week 2.
Fantasy: We knew this was going to be the case, but it’s now official. Again, he could be on a snap count this week, though, making Spiller more of a flex play. Low-end RB2-type value could be in the cards once Spiller is back to full-go.
NEWS: According to reports, Todd Gurley (knee) is inactive for Week 2.
Fantasy: He should be a go in Week 3, though, so get ready. Unless he suffers a setback, Tre Mason has decent flex value this week, but Benny Cunningham will still get reps.
NEWS: According to reports, Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, calf) is considered out for Week 2 against Arizona.
Fantasy: Both Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson are solid starts this week. We predict at least one of them scores, and Wilson could be a very sneaky play. If you need a WR3 this year in deep leagues, run him out onto the field! Expect Martellus Bennett to have a big game in this one.
NEWS: According to reports, Mike Evans (hamstring) will play in Week 2 against the Saints.
Fantasy: He is questionable, so stay close to your Smart Alerts today… we consider him a low-end fantasy WR1, or at least high-end fantasy WR2 whenever on the field! He looks like a go!
NEWS: According to reports, Vontae Davis is expected to cover Brandon Marshall on Monday night.
Fantasy: Davis was the one that caused Sammy Watkins to go without a catch in Week 1. Don’t bench him for just decent options, but don’t expect a huge game out of Marshall this week.
NEWS: LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is expected to be active for Week 2 against New England.
Fantasy: Keep him in lineups unless he has a setback, which we will surely alert you to via Smart Alerts. Karlos Williams should be owned by all McCoy owners, though, just in case McCoy doesn’t come out of this week healthy.
NEWS: According to reports, C.J. Spiller (knee) is expected to play in Week 2 against Bucs.
Fantasy: He could be eased into this one, so curb expectations a bit. Great news, though, for future weeks!
NEWS: According to reports, Tre Mason (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 2 against Washington.
Fantasy: Benny Cunningham won’t just go away, but Mason is the better start. Gurley may or may not play a little in this one, but in a few weeks, it will surely be the Todd Gurley show. Get ready!
