Report: Browns expected to start Cody Kessler Week 3

Ohio.com - [Full Article]

Rookie quarterback Cody Kessler will start for the Browns (0-2) on Sunday when they visit the Miami Dolphins (0-2), ESPN reported Monday.

The Browns have yet to make an announcement.

Kessler would fill in for Josh McCown, who suffered a left shoulder injury Sunday in a 25-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact:

While this isn't a surprise given the news about McCown's shoulder, the Browns weren't sure if Kessler was ready or if they would need to bring in another option. Kessler, a third-round draft pick from the University of Southern California, would become the third quarterback to start for the Browns in as many games. Robert Griffin III started the Sept. 11 regular-season opener, but he suffered a fractured bone in his left shoulder in the 29-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta, QB Joe Flacco haven't lost chemistry

ESPN - [Full Article]

Consistently getting open in the middle of the field, Ravens TE Dennis Pitta caught nine passes for 102 yards. In just his second game back after a nearly two-year absence, he produced his second-most receiving yards of his career.

"I see what Dennis is doing and, man, I'm inspired," Ravens wide receiver Steve L Smith Sr. said. "It's great to play with a guy like that. To see how he's playing after what he went through, and seeing him shifty and being the old Dennis, it's fantastic."

The chemistry between Pitta and quarterback Joe Flacco is remarkable considering they haven't been on the field together much. Pitta didn't play all of last year, and he missed a month of training camp with a fractured finger. When Pitta practiced during the spring, Flacco was sidelined while recovering from knee surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

Flacco threw to Pitta five times on third downs, completing four passes (all led to first downs). No one else on the Ravens caught more than two throws on third down. Pitta certainly seems worth a pickup if you're struggling at the position as the chemistry aspect should only get better the longer they can remain on the field together. The Ravens' other tight ends -- Crockett Gillmore and Maxx Williams -- have combined for two catches for 27 yards. Comparatively, Pitta has a team-leading 12 receptions for 141 yards through the first two weeks of the season.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 2.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (calf, questionable) took full practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 2. The return to full practice is a good sign for Perriman, who should play in Week 2.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee) missed practice again Thursday.

Thursday, September 15, 2016, 6:05pm

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (calf) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. The return to practice is a good sign for Perriman, but calf injuries can be tricky.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (calf) did not practice Wednesday. Perriman may miss Week 2. Calf injuries can be tricky. If he’s out, it probably means more snaps for Mike Wallace.

The Ravens reached an injury settlement with wide receiver Michael Campanaro Monday, waiving him with the injured designation, according to the NFL’s official transactions.

The move opens up the possibility for Campanaro to return to the team later this season.

Campanaro was placed on injured reserve when the Ravens cut the roster to 53. He dealt with a calf injury for much of the summer that still hadn’t righted itself by the end of training camp.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) dresses for walkthrough

Tuesday, September 13, 2016, 4:07pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Tuesday was a mildly encouraging day for those in Sammy Watkins' camp.

The Bills wide receiver was listed as a non-participant in the team's regular practice, but was dressed for the walkthrough portion, per the team's media department. Watkins has been dealing with discomfort in his surgically repaired foot since Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

On Monday, the receiver said he went to see the team's trainer because it "felt like it was tired," and he "wanted to make sure everything was fine." He added that he will be playing Thursday against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact:

Reports came on out Monday Watkins could be shut down for weeks, possibly even the year because of his foot issues. But he came out shortly after and said he was playing. It appears he's on track to, even on a short week. If he plays, he'll obviously be at less than 100-percent.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) could be shut down

Monday, September 12, 2016, 10:08am

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

Bills star wide receiver Sammy Watkins is playing with severe discomfort in his surgically repaired foot, the Daily News has learned. X-rays taken after the Bills season-opening loss to the Ravens on Sunday did not reveal another break, according to a person familiar with the situation, but Watkins is far from out of the woods.

Fantasy Impact:

The feeling now is whether Watkins can manage the pain in his foot, the story said. There was a thought Sunday night that he could miss the rest of the season. Medical personnel have informed Watkins and the team that there is no surgical remedy for the issue at this time. It's possible, however, that Watkins could be shut down for several weeks, or possibly longer, depending on how his foot responds. The loss of Watkins would be a big blow to Tyrod Taylor’s upside and effectiveness, as the Bills are pretty short on playmakers in the passing game if Watkins is sidelined. Robert Woods might become startable in deeper leagues, while Charles Clay would also likely see a good portion of Watkins’ targets.
