NEWS: Jeremy Kerley to see double-digit targets in Week 4?

SMITTY: The New York Post is predicting double-digit targets for Kerley this week, so if you need a WR, check your waiver wire for this guy. For some reason, he is still available in a lot of leagues. Looking for Week 4 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Alshon Jeffery no on Week 4 injury report; Marshall (ankle) still questionable.

SMITTY: This is great news for Jeffery and Cutler owners, but Brandon Marshall, who aggravated his ankle injury a bit on Monday night, remains questionable for Week 4. My guess is that he will just rest most of the week and then play Week 4 (early games on Sunday vs GB), but clearly you will want to stay on top of both our news wire and our Smart Alerts. Looking for Week 4 Power Rankings?

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are “going to play” Week 3 on Monday night.

SMITTY: This was expected, but it’s nice to get confirmation prior to kickoff. Marshall has elite fantasy WR1 upside whenever on the field, and Jeffery should still be considered a very high-end fantasy WR2 that can dance with the 1s on any given game day.

NEWS: Roddy White and Doug Martin both inactive for Week 3; Bobby Rainey a RB1 this week and Harry Douglas a sneaky fantasy WR3?

SMITTY: Bobby Rainey is a fantasy RB1 against a Falcons rushing defense that gives up over 150 rushing yards per game and has surrendered 5TDs through the first two weeks. Get Roddy White out of your line-up, and consider Harry Douglas as a spot play this week if you’re in need. Even if you don’t own White, Douglas is a sneaky start if desperate at your fantasy WR3. Julio Jones owners better get ready for a big Week 3! Looking for Week 3 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Roddy White (hamstring) is likely going to sit out his Week 3 Thursday night contest against Bucs.

SMITTY: This report is from PFT, and it’s suggesting he is likely out. Clearly check back, and sign up for our Smart Alerts in order to get real-time updates on this, but White owners should start getting an alternative plan in place right now. Looking for Week 3 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Eric Decker looking likely to play in Week 3?

SMITTY: Despite the hamstring issue, it looks like Eric Decker is on pace to play during Monday night’s Week 1 battle against the Bears. The problem here is that the game is on Monday night, so you may have to make a decision on Sunday. This is when our Smart Alerts come in handy, as well as our Week 3 Power Rankings, as our rankings might have one of your bench guys scoring more than Decker anyway. The Bears are currently 10th against the pass through two weeks, so this isn’t a great match-up for Geno Smith and Decker, but as always, anything can happen on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays, and really it boils down to your alternatives, which is why our Forums are so valuable! Get on there and talk about your lineup dilemmas!

NEWS: Josh Gordon suspended for 10 games!

According to reports, Browns WR Josh Gordon will miss 10 games under the terms of the NFL’s new drug policy.

SMITTY: He missed one game already, and the team has a Week 4 bye, so that puts his return in Week 12. Congrats to all who collected this guy on roster after roster this August, it was something we pushed hard with Smart Alerts and breaking news posts, and despite it not being just a half-season ban, playing Weeks 12-16 is a monster bonus for those that own the stud. Buying low in dynasty was also a huge deal, so nice work there as well if you stole him away in the panic.

NEWS: Josh Gordon looking at 8-game ban?

According to Adam Schefter on Twitter, Browns WR Josh Gordon (suspended) is expected to be looking at an 8-game ban after a new drug policy is approved as early as this afternoon.

SMITTY: This would be fantastic for those who scooped up Josh Gordon late in drafts like we’ve been recommending for weeks. He should no longer be available in any leagues, right? We have been sending out Smart Alerts on this all week, that he needed to be grabbed if available on waivers. We will let you know once/if this becomes official. Look for Wes Welker to see his suspension fully reduced — We should know more shortly, stay tuned.

NEWS: Antonio Brown exits Thursday’s Week 2 game; Brown to return to action.

After taking a shot in the first quarter, Antonio Brown (head) appears fine and ready to return to action here in the middle of the second quarter.

SMITTY: Great news. Brown was in the locker room for a bit, but the league is taking extra steps to ensure players are not going back into games with concussion-like symptoms. Be sure to sign-up for our Smart Alerts if you want news like this emailed to your or sent to you via text.
