Free-agent running back Alfred Morris is visiting the New York Giants on Thursday. He will get into the team's facility next week and is expected to sign then. The 32-year-old logged 55 carries for 238 rushing yards, and one touchdown over nine games for the Giants in 2020. If he makes the roster, Morris will provide the Giants running back depth and serve as the RB3 behind Saquon Barkley and Devontae Booker. The veteran running back doesn't have much left in the tank and is not on the fantasy radar in 2021.
Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans (leg) returned to the game on Sunday versus the Falcons. The veteran was spotting limping off the field after suffering a non-contact issue in his lower right leg. Evans was playing fantastic before he briefly left the game, racking up 75 yards and two touchdowns off five catches. Nonetheless, fantasy managers are undoubtedly glad to see him out there, so they can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk caught one of two passes for six yards in a 17-11 Week 2 win against the Philadelphia Eagles. Aiyuk ran fewer offensive snaps (47.3%) than Trent Sherfield (49.1%) and should be faded in PPR formats until he can become more of a factor within the 49ers' offense.
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.
