The Cleveland Browns will be without wide receiver Rashard Higgins for the next few days. Higgins rolled his ankle during practice on Wednesday and will be out at least for Thursday's session. Head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters that Higgins should be fine. With Higgins out, Donovan Peoples-Jones should see some extra reps with the first team. Higgins will attempt to win the WR3 job on the team behind starters Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. in camp.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (leg) limped off the field during Sunday's matchup against the Falcons. It was a non-contact injury, too, which is certainly not a good thing. It's unfortunate timing for Evans, who was having himself a fantastic contest in Week 2 before suffering the lower leg ailment, compiling four catches for 49 yards and two touchdowns. More in his status should be revealed by the team soon.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings caught both of his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 17-11 Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The second-year wideout was drafted in the seventh round but was able to find the end zone during a defensive battle in Philadelphia. Jennings should remain on waiver wires but can be stashed on benches in deeper leagues.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle caught all four of his targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 17-11 Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Kittle saw the team's second-highest target share at 17.6 percent behind Deebo Samuel, so fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned about his outlook moving forward. Kyle Shanahan ran 38 rushing plays versus 30 passing, meaning Kittle will likely require a pass-centric gameplan in order to hit return top-three value.
New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson hauled in one pass for 23 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Panthers. Johnson finished third on the team in targets and was the undisputed top option at the tight end position for News Orleans in Week 2. The athletic tight end may carve himself a role as the primary receiver at tight end for New Orleans- though fantasy managers will want to see a better effort out of the entire offense before they turn to Johnson for fantasy purposes.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught just one pass for 27 receiving yards in Sunday's blowout loss to the Panthers. Humphrey ended up as the team's leading receiver in a disappointing day for the offense. The 23-year-old has yet to seize the opportunity in front of him with Michael Thomas (ankle) sidelined, as he has totaled just one catch in two games played this season. Humphrey is firmly off the fantasy radar.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught six of eight targets for 90 yards during Sunday's 17-11 Week 2 win against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel was again the 49ers leading receiver and should be treated as a mid-range WR2 with WR1 upside moving forward. He is also involved in the 49ers' running game, carrying twice for eight yards during a second consecutive road win to elevate San Francisco to a 2-0 record.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Deonte Harris caught one pass for nine receiving yards, adding one carry for a rushing yard in Sunday's loss to Carolina. Harris was looking to build upon a solid Week 1 effort that saw him haul in a long touchdown from Jameis Winston, though it was not to be, as the signal-caller and the entire Saints offense took a step back. Harris can make big plays from time to time, but his boom/bust nature makes him hard to trust for fantasy.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of 40 passes for 295 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 26-17 home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 2. Roethlisberger outpaced his anemic Week 1 output but still only managed to toss one touchdown in the surprising loss to the Raiders. The veteran quarterback's only score was a 25-yard pass to Najee Harris in which the rookie running back did most of the work in catching the short pass, shedding a tackle, and then diving for the end zone. Roethlisberger is looking like a low-upside QB2 for fantasy purposes this season and may be without his favorite target for a while as Diontae Johnson appeared to injure his knee on the final play of the game. Treat Big Ben as a mid-range QB2 in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marquez Callaway caught two of four targets for eight receiving yards in a Week 2 loss to Carolina. The Saints offense as a whole failed to bring their best effort, though Callaway has now disappointed for two straight weeks after putting together a strong preseason. If there was any positive to take from the performance, it's that the 23-year-old finished second on the team in targets behind Alvin Kamara- suggesting that he could perhaps emerge as the second option in the passing game at some point. Fantasy managers certainly can't afford to have him in lineups against a tough Patriots defense in Week 3, so it's best to take the wait-and-see approach with Callaway.
San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) will undergo an MRI, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. The rookie suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles and briefly exited as a result. He did return, which was welcome news, but the team ultimately won't know more about his status moving forward until he receives a more thorough examination. With Trey Sermon (concussion) and JaMycal Hasty (ankle) both also dealing with injuries, the Niners may have to make a transaction or two heading into the Week 3 outing against the Green Bay Packers.
