|9/25/2016||Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB|
|Rodgers shook off the criticism from a slow start on Sunday when he fired four touchdown passes and didn't throw a pick in a 34-27 win over the Lions. He only threw for 205 yards, but made them count.
Analysis: Rodgers has been ridiculous at Lambeau Field over the past few seasons, throwing 54 TDs and just four interceptions in his last 21 games there.
|9/25/2016||Josh Doctson, Was, WR|
|Doctson was surprisingly on the inactive list for the Redskins against the Giants.
Analysis: The first-round pick out of TCU hasn't had much of an impact in his first two games, catching just two passes, though one went for 57 yards.
|9/25/2016||C.J. Prosise, Sea, RB|
|The Seahawks were without two of their top three running backs for Sunday's NFC West Division matchup against San Francisco, with both Thomas Rawls and Prosise on the inactive list.
Analysis: Prosise was inactive for the second straight week after cracking a bone in his hand in the opener against Miami
|9/25/2016||Jared Cook, GB, TE|
|Cook sustained an injured right ankle during the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. On the first play after Damarious Randall's interception set up Green Bay at Detroit's 25-yard line, Cook was unable to catch a deep crossing route that was thrown slightly behind him by quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Analysis: Cook, who had one catch for 15 yards, hobbled off the field and was examined by trainers before being taken to the locker room. Cook missed most of the Packers' offseason program and the start of training camp after minor foot surgery. Neither Cook nor the team said which foot was injured.
|9/25/2016||Virgil Green, Den, TE|
|Green is inactive Sunday with a calf injury.
Analysis: He's considered week-to-week for the Broncos, but is expected to return in Week 4.
|9/25/2016||Hunter Henry, SD, TE|
|Henry is expected to start in Week 3 with Antonio Gates out of action.
Analysis: Henry could be a nice late pickup if you're desperate at tight end.
|9/25/2016||DeAngelo Hall, Was, S|
|Hall suffered a right knee injury with 2:53 left in the second quarter and the veteran safety joined starting right cornerback Bahaud Breeland on the Washington Redskins' sideline.
Analysis: Hall was injured when he had to make a tackle on New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. on an 18-yard catch. Breeland injured his ankle in the first quarter and did not return. Neither will return to the Week 3 game against the New York Giants.
|9/25/2016||Tyrod Taylor, Buf, QB|
|Taylor had 76 yards rushing Sunday, including a 49-yarder for the longest by a quarterback in Bills history. One of his nine carries was a 20-yard TD run.
Analysis: Taylor failed to throw a TD pass for the second time in three games this season and had an INT for the second straight game while going 14 of 25 for 119 yards.
|9/25/2016||Sebastian Janikowski, Oak, K|
|Janikowski now is the NFL's all-time leader in field goals made from 50 yards and out. Janikowski kicked a 52-yard field goal with 8:13 left in the second quarter Sunday, giving the Raiders a 10-3 lead over the Tennessee Titans.
Analysis: That marked the 53rd field goal of 50 yards or longer for the 17-year veteran, breaking a tie with Jason Hanson who had 52 such field goals in 21 NFL seasons. His career percentage from 50 yards and out coming into this game was 55.9 percent (52 of 93). He was 4 of 5 from that distance last season.
|9/25/2016||Eli Apple, NYG, CB|
|Apple suffered a hamstring injury midway through the second quarter and was ruled out to return in Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Analysis: Apple, the Giants' first-round draft pick, has been rotating on the outside with starter Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. He had one tackle in the game prior to having to exit. Trevin Wade took Apple's snaps on defense.
|9/25/2016||Cam Newton, Car, QB|
|Newton completed 21 of 35 passes for 262 yards with three interceptions while being sacked eight times in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Newton went out for a play after receiving brief medical attention on the field. Derek Anderson filled in for one play before Newton returned and completed a third-down pass, though the Panthers were forced to punt. The Panthers visit Atlanta next Sunday. A year ago, Carolina suffered its only regular-season loss at the Georgia Dome in Week 16. Newton threw for just 142 yards.
|9/25/2016||Bashaud Breeland, Was, CB|
|Breeland sustained a high sprain to his right ankle Sunday and was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday.
Analysis: He was injured covering rookie Sterling Shepard on a 12-yard pass down to the Redskins 1. Trainers worked on his lower right leg, and he couldn't put weight on the leg as he was helped off the field.
|9/25/2016||Chris Ivory, Jax, RB|
|Ivory made his Jaguars debut Sunday against the Ravens but was mostly ineffective.
Analysis: He finished with 14 yards on 12 carries, hobbling to the sideline several times with an apparent knee injury. Ivory missed the first two games because of a "general medical issue" that required an overnight hospital stay. Ivory was a 1,000-yard rusher with the Jets last season.
|9/25/2016||Orleans Darkwa, NYG, RB|
|With Rashad Jennings inactive for the Giants on Sunday, Darkwa set career highs with 10 carries and 53 yards while also scoring the third TD of his career.
Analysis: Darkwa entered with one carry in the first two games.
|9/25/2016||Letroy Guion, GB, DT|
|Guion won't play Sunday against the Lions because of a knee injury.
Analysis: Guion is one of the team's top run-stoppers and the Packers held the Vikings to 30 rushing yards on 22 carries last Sunday. He made two tackles, including stopping Vikings running back Adrian Peterson for a 4-yard loss in the second quarter.
|9/25/2016||Ronald Darby, Buf, CB|

|9/25/2016||Kyle Fuller, Chi, CB|

|9/25/2016||Shane Vereen, NYG, RB|
|With Rashad Jennings inactive for the Giants on Sunday, Vereen ran 11 times for 67 yards and a TD.
Analysis: Vereen had 20 carries for 80 yards and no TDs in the first two games.
|9/25/2016||Kenyan Drake, Mia, RB|
|Drake is likely to get the start for Week 3 against the Browns with Arian Foster out.
Analysis: Drake has only carried the ball twice and has two receptions but the coaching staff seems to have more trust in him than Jay Ajayi.
|9/25/2016||Alshon Jeffery, Chi, WR|
|Jeffery is active for Sunday's tilt with the Cowboys after being listed as questionable with what he said was knee soreness
Analysis: Figure Jeffery to get some looks from quarterback Brian Hoyer, who is starting in place of the injured Jay Cutler. However, temper expectations on the fantasy front.
