Date Player
9/25/2020 Henry Ruggs III, LV, WR
Ruggs will miss Sunday's game against the Patriots with knee and hamstring injuries.

Analysis: The rookie has yet to make a major impact anyway with four catches and 55 receiving yards through his first two games. Josh Jacobs and tight end Darren Waller have been the focal points of the Raiders' offense and should remain so.
9/25/2020 Melvin Ingram III, LAC, DE
Ingram is doubtful for Sunday's game against Carolina due to a sore knee.

Analysis: Ingram's absence should make for a slightly easier time for Carolina QB Teddy Bridgewater, though the Chargers defense still rates as a good play against a Panthers team that will be without Christian McCaffrey.
9/25/2020 Jack Doyle, Ind, TE
Doyle (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, though he's expected to play.

Analysis: Doyle may have been Wally-Pipped by Mo Alie-Cox, however, when he missed last week's game against the Vikings. Alie-Cox took advantage of the opportunity by recording a career-high 111 yards on five catches in Indianapolis' 28-11 win.
9/24/2020 Laviska Shenault Jr., Jax, WR
Laviska Shenault Jr. had five receptions for 33 yards Thursday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He added one rush for one yard.
9/24/2020 Tyler Eifert, Jax, TE
Tyler Eifert had two receptions for 11 yards Thursday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
9/24/2020 Myles Gaskin, Mia, RB
Myles Gaskin ran for 66 yards on 22 carries Thursday in the Miami Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He added five receptions for 29 yards.
9/24/2020 James Robinson, Jax, RB
James Robinson ran for 46 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries Thursday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He added six receptions for 83 yards.
9/24/2020 Matt Breida, Mia, RB
Matt Breida ran for four yards on three carries Thursday in the Miami Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
9/24/2020 Jordan Howard, Mia, RB
Jordan Howard ran for one yard and one touchdown on three carries Thursday in the Miami Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
9/24/2020 Gardner Minshew II, Jax, QB
Gardner Minshew II was 30 of 42 for 275 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass Thursday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He threw one interception, fumbled once and was sacked four times. Minshew II added 22 rushing yards on three carries.
9/24/2020 Chris Thompson, Jax, RB
Chris Thompson ran for three yards on two carries Thursday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He added five receptions for 35 yards.
9/24/2020 Ryan Fitzpatrick, Mia, QB
Ryan Fitzpatrick was 18 of 20 for 160 yards and threw two touchdown passes Thursday in the Miami Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked one time. Fitzpatrick added 38 rushing yards on seven carries and scored one touchdown on the ground.
9/24/2020 Darren Waller, LV, TE
Waller (knee) returned to practice Friday after missing the last two days.

Analysis: Workhorse running back Josh Jacobs (hip) also was back on the field after a two-day reprieve, and both players seem likely to suit up for Sunday's game at New England. Waller's 24 targets through the first two weeks trail only DeAndre Hopkins' 25 for the most in the NFL.
9/24/2020 Julio Jones, Atl, WR
Jones (hamstring) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears but did not practice Friday for a third straight day. NFL.com has reported that the star wide receiver will be a game-time decision.

Analysis: Jones does often play through injuries, but he clearly wasn't at full strength when he managed just two catches for 24 yards against the Cowboys last week. His status does present a dilemma for fantasy owners and makes Calvin Ridley a must-start this week. Ridley has been rolling with 239 receiving yards and four touchdowns through two games.
9/24/2020 Diontae Johnson, Pit, WR
Johnson (foot) returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session.

Analysis: Johnson should be fine for Sunday's game against the Texans. He's gotten his second NFL season off to a good start with 14 catches, 149 yards and a touchdown through two games.
9/24/2020 JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pit, WR
Smith-Schuster (knee) missed a second straight practice Thursday.

Analysis: Smith-Schuster missed some time with a knee injury last season, so fantasy owners should have some concern about his availability for Sunday's game against Houston. The Steelers also have depth at the wide receiver position with rookie Chase Claypool having emerged as an early threat.
9/24/2020 DJ Chark Jr., Jax, WR
Chark will miss Thursday's game against the Dolphins due to a chest injury.

Analysis: Chark's injury isn't considered a long-term issue, but the Jaguars are coming off a short week after playing Sunday. Jacksonville has shown some depth at the wide receiver position in the early going, as Chark, Keelan Cole, rookie Laviska Shenault and Chris Conley have all recorded at least five catches and 54 receiving yards.
9/24/2020 Alshon Jeffery, Phi, WR
Jeffery practiced Thursday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his foot in December.

Analysis: Jeffery still is not expected to be ready to play when the Eagles host the Bengals on Sunday, but a Week 4 return may not be out of the question. That would be good news for an offense that's largely struggled during Philadelphia's 0-2 start.
9/24/2020 Zack Moss, Buf, RB
Moss (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Devin Singletary will presumably get an increase in touches with Moss inactive. The two have basically split work over the first two weeks, with Singletary receiving 26 touches and Moss 20.
9/24/2020 Christian Kirk, Ari, WR
Kirk (groin) will miss a second straight practice Thursday, putting his availability for Sunday's game against the Lions into question.

Analysis: Kirk's role has diminished over the season's first two weeks due to the presence of DeAndre Hopkins on the Cardinals' roster. He's recorded just three catches totaling 57 yards through the first two games.
