 DFS advice for Week 2

J.K. Dobbins is inactive due to his knee injury.

Impact: The Ravens have no reason to risk a potentially longer-term injury here. Kenyan Drake benefits.

Groin is active.

Impact: Terrace Marshall Jr. is ready to challenge him for WR3 snaps. Laviska Shenault Jr. is again a healthy inactive.

Swift is active with an ankle injury.

Impact: If there's any issue at all during the game, Jamaal Williams is surely going to get extra snaps.

Michael Pittman Jr. is a wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts.

Impact: Expect Parris Campbell to get a lot more playing time.

Alec is out due to a concussion.

Impact: Kylen Granson was targeted a lot last week and could see extra looks again.

Wilson is an active player.

Impact: He got some practice in toward the end of the week, so there's optimism he can play a full 60 minutes.

Pierre Strong Jr. is an active running back.

Impact: Strong could be a factor on third downs, given that Ty Montgomery is now on IR.

Jameis Winston is an active quarterback.

Impact: Given all the injuries in this backfield, even though he's going to start, we'd avoid Winston in Week 2.

No: Ribs are inactive.

Impact: Being held out of practices wasn't exactly a good sign. Hopefully, he'll be good to go in Week 3.

There is a running back with an ankle who is active.

Impact: At least Ingram saw some reps this week. He should be ready to step into Kamara's shoes.

The running back is active.

Impact: He may have to share any leftover touches with Tony Jones Jr.

Smith is inactive due to a shoulder injury.

Impact: Rookie Chris Olave has already surged past him on the WR depth chart.

Wan' Dale Robinson has a knee injury.

Impact: With the rookie hurt, Richie James could again join Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard in some 3-WR sets.

Kadarius Toney is an active player.

Impact: Fortunately, he is indeed able to help out on the receiving end of things.

The quarterback for NYJ is out with a knee injury.

Impact: Veteran Joe Flacco will get another chance to hold off Mike White as Wilson's short-term replacement.

C.J. Uzomah is an inactive player.

Impact: Tyler Conklin enters the streaming mix at the TE position.

Fournette is active.

Impact: After being able to practice twice late in the week, we're not surprised to see Fournette suiting up.

Chris Godwin is out of the game.

Impact: Godwin might be out multiple weeks with this injury.

Jones is inactive due to a knee injury.

Impact: Missed two practices this week, and clearly wasn't ready for this one.

Mike Evans is an active player.

Impact: Got hurt Wednesday, but was able to practice Friday. With Jones and Godwin out, he'll be relied upon heavily.

Breshad Perriman has a knee that's active.

Impact: With all these other WR injuries around him, he might be a Week 2 factor.

Russell Gage is an active member of the football team.

Impact: As with Perriman, anybody who can suit up for the Buccaneers today has a chance to shine.


Marcus Peters has a knee injury.

Groin is active.

Amani Oruwariye is inactive.

De Forest Buckner is an active defensive player.

The back of the LB is out.

Impact: Marquise Brown should get some extra attention from Kyler Murray.

Damien Williams is a running back for the Atlanta Falcons.

The concussive nature of the injury makes it questionable.

Impact: He is expected to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol prior to Sunday's game.

The quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys has a thumb.

Impact: To call Cooper Rush a downgrade at quarterback is a huge understatement.

Michael Gallup left the game with a knee injury.

Impact: Tyrie Cleveland did very little in a sub role for Hamler in Week 1.

Van Jefferson was out with a knee injury.

Impact: Allen Robinson II and Ben Skowronek continue to get small value bumps.

Sunday night game

Impact: It's not a clear-cut call and he's currently expected to play, but you may be best served by starting someone else this week.
