J Conner (PIT)

James Conner (knee) confident he'll play Sunday
The news should give Conner owners a sigh of relief. He'll likely still be questionable heading into the weekend as the team takes on the 49ers. Jaylen Samuels could see some extra work even if Conner does play. With the injury to Ben Roethlisberger, the team as a whole gets a downgrade in fantasy value.

Fantasy Spin:
James Conner expressed optimism regarding his knee injury during his radio show on Monday telling listeners, "I don’t think it’s long term. I’m pretty confident I’ll be out there this coming Sunday." As for the injury, he was told “it’s a bruise or contusion, no tear."

N Saints (NOS)

New Orleans D/ST racks up three sacks, fumble recovery
The day could have been much bigger for the D/ST unit as the referees got yet another play wrong and blew a Cameron Jordan fumble recovery for a touchdown dead with a blown call. The Saints now have nine sacks over their first two weeks and will look to keep up the pace in Week 3 against Seattle.

Fantasy Spin:
The New Orleans Saints D?ST had yet another impressive performance in a Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

A Falcons (ATL)

Atlanta Falcons D/ST has bounce back Week 2
The Atlanta Falcons defense bounced back in a major way at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Home cooking appears to be just what the doctor ordered as the Falcons D/ST finished tied for third in fantasy points at the position for Week 2. The Falcons are back on the road in Week 3, but could prove to be a decent streaming target against Jacoby Brissett and the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Spin:
The Atlanta Falcons defense racked up the fantasy points in Week 2 with three sacks, two interceptions, and a fumble recovery.

D Lions (DET)

Detroit Lions D/ST has strong Week 2
The Lions held the Chargers to just 10 points and finished the week as the number six overall D/ST with nine fantasy points. They have tough tests for the next four straight weeks making them a defense to stream out of your lineups.

Fantasy Spin:
The Detroit Lions defense managed to compile one sack, one interception and a fumble recovery against Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers.

C Anderson (DET)

C.J. Anderson manages just eight yards on five Week 2 carries
C.J. Anderson continues to see a role in the Lions offense, but saw his carries dip from 11 in Week 1 to five in Week 2. Anderson saw just 12 snaps compared to 13 for Ty Johnson. Anderson is likely to see reduced workloads when the Lions are dealing with negative gamescripts. Anderson is someone to hold onto in deeper leagues as he is just one injury away from flirting with weekly RB2 upside. Those in shallower leagues who do not own Kerryon Johnson (15 touches, 54 percent of snaps) should start to consider other options.

Fantasy Spin:
Detroit Lions number two running back C.J. Anderson saw just five Week 2 touches.
08:44 PM
C Clay (ARI)

Charles Clay has quiet Week 2
Despite trailing for the entire game and losing David Johnson to injury, tight end Charles Clay saw just two targets against the Baltimore Ravens. He hauled in one pass and took it for just six yards. The tight end position is not one of particular relevance in coach Kliff Kingsbury's scheme. Clay and fellow tight end Maxx Williams combined for just 25 of 60 possible Week 2 snaps. Clay should not be on fantasy rosters.

Fantasy Spin:
Arizona Cardinals tight end Charles Clay managed just one reception on two Week 2 targets.
08:22 PM
T Williams (OAK)

Tyrell Williams battling hip pointer
Williams' injury currently does not have an official designation or timetable for return. Fantasy owners should view him as day-to-day until the Raiders officially update him.

Fantasy Spin:
Tyrell Williams sustained a hip pointer injury during Week 2's contest against the Chiefs.
08:20 PM
J Jacobs (OAK)

Josh Jacobs (groin) dealing with injury
Jacobs is dealing with an unexpected groin injury. Unfortunately, head coach Jon Gruden did not provide further details, but it seems that Jacobs will need to be monitored throughout the week by fantasy owners.

Fantasy Spin:
Josh Jacobs hurt his groin during Oakland's Week 2 loss to Kansas City. This situation is currently developing.
08:07 PM
D Johnson (ARI)

David Johnson 'ready to go' for Week 3
Johnson left Sunday's game with a wrist injury but returned to action before the afternoon was over. Johnson's head coach stated that the running back is "ready to go" which should give fantasy owners peace of mind and the confidence start DJ in Week 3.

Fantasy Spin:
David Johnson will be fully utilized for Week 3's contest against the Panthers.
07:57 PM
G Packers (GBP)

Green Bay Packers DST forces four turnovers in win
This unit recorded two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and a blocked kick in a key divisional win. Through two weeks, this revamped squad looks formidable and should be an elite option against Denver in Week 3.

Fantasy Spin:
The Green Bay Packers DST forced four turnovers in Sunday’s 21-16 win over the Vikings.
07:54 PM
D Lions (DET)

Detroit Lions DST holds Chargers to 10 points
The unit also recorded a sack, a fumble recovery, and an interception. This defense has had a solid two weeks of production, but they are a fade in Weeks 3 and 4 against the potent offenses of Philadelphia and Kansas City.

Fantasy Spin:
The Detroit Lions DST held the Chargers to 10 points in Sunday’s 13-10 win.
07:29 PM
A Mattison (MIN)

Alexander Mattison logs just four touches in Week 2
With Dalvin Cook looking fully healthy and as a result like one of the best running backs in football, Alexander Mattison was out touched 23-4. The impressive rookie from Boise State does not figure to see his role expand much in the near future. Mattison is talented back who is spot starter ready, but does not possess the ability to threaten Cook's workhorse role. Mattison took his four carries for 25 yards and would be staring an increased workload in the face in almost any other backfield in the NFL. Mattison is a dynasty hold and one of the very best handcuffs in the league. Those in deep leagues should continue to stash him if possible, but those in shallower formats who do not own Dalvin Cook should feel free to work the waiver wire.

Fantasy Spin:
Minnesota Vikings rookie running back saw just four touches in the Minnesota Vikings loss to the Green Bay Packers.
07:24 PM
M Vikings (MIN)

Vikings D/ST falls flat in Week 2
The Vikings D/ST's two sacks and two fumble recoveries count as a solid day when facing the Green Bay Packers. They held Aaron Rodgers to just 209 passing yards, but gave up 144 yards on the ground. Due to giving up 21 points to Green Bay, the Vikings finished as a middle of the road fantasy defense for Week 2. The Vikings should bounce back with plus matchup against the Oakland Raiders on tap for this weekend.

Fantasy Spin:
Minnesota Vikings D/ST comes up with two sacks, two fumble recoveries in Week 2.
07:22 PM
C Bears (CHI)

The Chicago Bears defense gives up 372 total yards, 27 points in losss
The Chicago Bears defense could muster only two sacks and an interception in Week 2. Those are not disappointing numbers in a vacuum, but are just that when the 27 points and 372 yards of total offense are added into the equation. They did put up five fantasy points, but that is likely a far cry from what owners were expecting of them. Better times seem to be just around the corner for this D/ST as the Bears have Washington up next on the schedule. Deploy them like you normally would for Week 3's Monday Night Football. With that said the Bears do have some tough matchups this season so do not be afraid to consider streaming options when necessary.

Fantasy Spin:
The vaunted Chicago Bears defense struggled mightily on the road against the Denver Broncos.

J Conner (PIT)

James Conner's (knee) injury is 'manageable' according to teammates
Conner's injury status still has not been officially updated by the Steelers. While this update may bring relief to fantasy owners, nothing is official and you should have another option ready for Week 3 until there is official word. Jaylen Samuels will start if Connor is unable to fulfill his duties.

Fantasy Spin:
James Conner's injury to his knee is reportedly not considered serious by multiple teammates. The issue seems to be manageable and backup Jaylen Samuels is prepared to start if he is needed. The Steelers have not officially updated Connor's status.
