Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. He’ll be out for a few weeks. It’s an opportunity for Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant, though we think Roberts has the edge. He has produced big games in spots during his career and came to the Redskins to be the starter, only the team signed Jackson in the same offseason.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Jones should be fine to face the G-Men.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Lee is making his way back, but we feel that he’s well behind Allen Hurns for the WR2 job.

Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (knee) practiced fully Wednesday. Robinson should be fine to face Miami.

Lions WR Golden Tate (quadricep) did not practice Wednesday. Tate finished the game last week, so we’d expect him to play against Minnesota.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) did not practice Wednesday. HC Ken Whisenhunt said there was a “chance” that Walker can play in Week 2. Owners should have a Plan B ready to go.

Texans will start Ryan Mallett in Week 2

Sources: Texans are poised to make a quarterback change. They are preparing to play with QB Ryan Mallett as their starter vs. the Panthers.

Related Players: Brian Hoyer

Fantasy Impact:

Brian Hoyer completed 4/8 passes to DeAndre Hopkins for 39 yards and a touchdown. Mallett completed 5/5 passes to Hopkins for 59 yards and a touchdown. He also found Hopkins for a two-point conversion and the receiver drew a 15-yard pass interference penalty on another Mallett attempt. It's a small sample size, but it doesn't appear that there will be any "drop off" from Hoyer to Mallett as far as Hopkins is concerned.

Texans Beat: Arian Foster on track to return in Week 5

John McClain, Twitter - [Full Article]

Texans beat writer John McClain: Arian Foster will miss his 2nd game Sunday. He has to practice a couple of weeks before he can play. I still think he'll miss four games and return for the Colts.

Fantasy Impact:

This would mean Foster would return in Week 5. His recovery timeline has been all over the map. A national writer said he could even return as early as this week, but McClain is a respected, plugged in beat writer, so we tend to believe him.

Peyton Manning not concerned with back injury

Tuesday, September 15, 2015, 8:41pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

After getting sacked four times against the Ravens on Sunday, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning found himself on the injury report. Though he was listed with a back injury, Manning fully participated at practice.

But with the Broncos playing a game on Thursday and with Manning looking less than optimal on Sunday, eyebrows were raised at the sight of Manning's name on that injury report. So, when members of the media met with Manning on Tuesday, they asked him about his back injury.

It turns out Manning's back injury is not a cause for concern.

"I was kind of surprised I was on it to tell you the truth," Manning said via "I think like a lot of guys, it's a pretty physical game on Sunday, so in many ways maybe I'm honored."

Fantasy Impact:

Manning went on to say he hates injury reports, then jokingly diagnosed members of the Denver media with his own injury report about them. Manning and the Broncos play Thursday night but it seems Manning is in no danger if missing Week 2.
