Wednesday, September 19, 2012, 6:26pm

Giants

OUT 
RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), T David Diehl (knee), WR Domenik Hixon (concussion), WR Hakeem Nicks (foot), DE Adewale Ojomo (hamstring)

QUESTIONABLE
CB Michael Coe (hamstring)

PROBABLE
CB Prince Amukamara (ankle), LB Keith Rivers (hamstring), RB Da'Rel Scott (knee) 

 

Panthers

OUT
G Mike Pollak (shoulder)

QUESTIONABLE
T Byron Bell (ankle), LB Thomas Davis (hamstring), S Colin Jones (shoulder), RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle)

PROBABLE
LB Jon Beason (elbow), C Ryan Kalil (ankle), WR Kealoha Pilares (foot), WR Steve L Smith (knee)

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Brown got most of the work in Week 2 when Bradshaw was knocked out of the game. He appears to be the handcuff at this point, though rookie David Wilson may have an opportunity to earn a larger role. For Week 3, Brown looks like the better play. At wide receiver, Ramses Barden played 47 snaps after Hixon was knocked out of the game. He appears to be ahead of rookie Rueben Randle (3 snaps) at this point.

With both Nicks and Domenik Hixon out, Ramses Barden should get first crack at snaps with rookie Rueben Randle not far behind. This has to be a downgrade for Eli Manning who will be without one of his biggest weapons. Martellus Bennett is also looking like a sneaky start.

The short week appears to be hurting Jonathan Stewart's chances of suiting up on Thursday. If he sits, DeAngelo Williams would once again be in line for a number of touches. He did not do very well in that role against the Buccaneers, but bounced back strong against the Saints. The Giants have been mediocre against the rush this year. Consider him a low-end RB2.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers WR Brandon LaFell pretty much has locked up the No. 2 wide receiver job opposite Steve L Smith.

But there’s a logjam of receivers after that.

David Gettis, Louis Murphy and Seyi Ajirotutu seem to be competing for the No. 3 spot. But they might not all make the team. The Panthers also are high on younger receivers Kealoha Pilares, Joe Adams and Armanti Edwards, each of whom can contribute in the return game.

Edwards, whom the Panthers drafted as a project in 2010, has shown some promise in camp but probably isn’t going to make the roster ahead of Adams and Pilares.

Fantasy Impact:

Lafells could be inline for a breakout season, he's just going to need to see targets. We rank him 41st among our WRs and according to his ADP, he's not even getting drafted in standard leagues. He's someone to keep an eye on if you wait on WRs and end up needing some help, but until we see something, he's really just a flier right now.
