E Decker (NYJ)

Eric Decker (shoulder) heading for an MRI
This was first reported by Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. The word around the Jets is that they're concerned after missing Wednesday's practice. Owners need to follow his status to see if he'll play sunday against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Spin:
Eric Decker headed for an MRI for his shoulder.

J Winston (TBB)

Jameis Winston leads the NFL in pass attemtps
The opportunity for Jameis Winston to carry the offense is clearly available, as the team essentially abandoned the run against Los Angeles with Doug Martin sidelined with a hamstring injury. Sunday Tampa Bay hosts the Broncos, a defense that has surrendered just 178.3 passing yards a game, fourth fewest in the NFL this season. The Buccaneers passed 58 times and ran just 22 times last week against the Rams, and four of the rush attempts came from Winston. Any offensive output the team has with Martin sidelined will likely come from its quarterback.

Fantasy Spin:
Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston has thrown the ball a league-high 142 times and has completed 86 passes, second only to Drew Brees this season.
12:44 AM
D Walker (TEN)

Delanie Walker expected to return week 4
When healthy, Walker is one of the very few TEs that can be considered a must-start every week. Walker has a tough matchup this week against a Houston Texans defense that hasn't' given up a TD or more than 34 yards to TE in a single game this season. Despite that, unless you have Rob Gronkowski, Jordan Reed, or Greg Olsen; Walker is too good, and the position is too thin to sit. I would, however, stay away from Walker in daily formats.

Fantasy Spin:
Tennessee Titans’ TE Delanie Walker (hamstring) looks like he is on pace to return to the Titans lineup for their week 4 matchup against the Houston Texans. Walker missed the Titans week 3 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.
12:26 AM
T Hilton (IND)

T.Y. Hilton doesn’t practice Wednesday
The injury doesn't seem serious and is probably just a precautionary rest, but I would still monitor Hilton's status throughout the week. If Hilton is active, he should be in your lineup as he has a nice matchup against the Jaguars in a game that should turn into a high-scoring affair.

Fantasy Spin:
Indianapolis Colts’ WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) sat out of practice Wednesday. The Colts play the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday in London.
12:11 AM
T Austin (RAM)

Tavon Austin limited in practice
This is the first we are hearing of any injury for Austin. The fact he was only limited though still puts him on track to play Sunday. He has a bad matchup with a tough Cardinals defense so he's better off on your bench this week.

Fantasy Spin:
Tavon Austin was limited in practice with a shoulder injury on Wednesday.

D Sims (MIA)

Dion Sims to start with Jordan Cameron out
Dion Sims is a decent flyer at TE, however the Dolphins have shown that they don't use TEs in the offense often.

Fantasy Spin:
With Jordan Cameron ailing it will be Dion Sims attempting to fill the void.
09:47 PM
J Olawale (OAK)

Jamize Olawale carries the ball once in Week 3 win
While being on the field for 34 percent of the Raiders' offensive plays sounds beneficial, Olawale was mainly used a run and pass blocking back. His season total of 3 carries for 13 yards and a touchdown, along with two receptions for 28 yards, illuminates the fact that snap count is not always an accurate statistic to predict production.

Fantasy Spin:
Jamize Olawale was on the field for 22 snaps, but only touched the ball once on his lone carry for zero yards.
09:34 PM
J Richard (OAK)

Jalen Richard totals 41 yards in Week 3 victory
Jalen Richard accounted for six of the 24 total rushing attempts by the Raiders running backs in Week 3. He is averaging 8.6 yards per carry through three games and should continue to see about 25 percent of the total workload throughout the season. Barring injury, Jack Del Rio stated he plans on continuing to use the running back by committee approach, limiting any potential production for Oakland running backs.

Fantasy Spin:
Jalen Richard rushed six times for 28 yards along with one reception for 13 yards against the Tennessee Titans.
09:15 PM
B Irvin (OAK)

Bruce Irvin forces fumble in Week 3 victory
Bruce Irvin has produced an admirable total of seven tackles, one sack, and two forced fumbles through the first three games of the 2016 season. After voicing his disappointment in his team's defensive ability following the Week 2 loss, the Raiders allowed 395 total yards and 10 points in Week 3. Not phenomenal numbers, but certainly an improvement. The Raiders defense is trending in the right direction.

Fantasy Spin:
Bruce Irvin totaled four tackles, one of which forced a fumble in the Raiders' 17-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
08:39 PM
C Fleener (NOS)

Coby Fleener gaining the trust of Drew Brees
This is still a work in progress, but it is nice to see that Brees is working with Fleener to make him a better player. Fleener could turn things around shortly and could reward fantasy owners who stuck with him the first three weeks.

Fantasy Spin:
Brees told reporters that a lot of the things they have been working on finally happened the way they talked about and worked on at practice.
08:18 PM
A Foster (MIA)

Arian Foster ruled out for Week 4
As expected, Foster will not play against the Bengals most likely due to the short week. With Foster once again sidelined, Miami's backfield is in turmoil. They will likely continue to employ a by committee approach with Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams and Jay Ajayi sharing the workload.

Fantasy Spin:
Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster (groin) has been ruled out for Week 4's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.
07:48 PM
J Brissett (NEP)

Jacoby Brissett at practice on Wednesday
The starting QB for Week 4 for the Patriots is still up in the air. If both Brissett and Garoppolo are ready, expect Garoppolo to get the starting nod. But both players are getting starting reps and this could be a case of coach Bill Belichick waiting until the last minute to name a starter.

Fantasy Spin:
Both Jacoby Brissett (right thumb) and Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder) threw passes during the early portion of Wednesday's practice, CSN New England reports.
07:45 PM
C West (KCC)

Charcandrick West sits out of practice on Wednesday
West is suffering from an ankle injury and will be held out of Wednesday's practice. The ailing running back has been invisible thus far in 2016 even with Jamaal Charles sidelined. West should remain on the waiver wire in most fantasy football formats with the exception of 16-team and deeper leagues.

Fantasy Spin:
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) will not practice on Wednesday.
07:36 PM
R Gronkowski (NEP)

Rob Gronkowski has no set backs concerning hamstring
Gronkowski was limited in his playing time in Week 3 against the Texans. He played just 14 snap on offense and saw one target. The good news though was that he was on the field. He should see his workload increase in Week 4 against the Bills but still may not be 100%. And even though he may not be on the field the whole game he will still be a major weapon and will get red zone targets.

Fantasy Spin:
Rob Gronkowski noted Wednesday that he experienced "no setbacks" with his hamstring in his season debut this past Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
07:02 PM
T Romo (DAL)

Tony Romo 'moving around more comfortably'
As Romo continues to rehabilitate his back injury, reports indicate that his recovery is going well and that he is on track to make his return to the field at the tentative November 6 timeline that was set for the signal caller upon suffering his injury in the preseason. Fantasy owners should monitor Romo's injury status in the coming weeks as he could be added from the waiver wire for the second half of the season.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told the media that QB Tony Romo (back) "is moving around more comfortably" and that "he's got a good look on his face."
