There was a brief and welcome lull with the injury page, but things went a little haywire in the past week. Here’s your status check as we enter Week 3.
• Julio Jones has a sore ankle and calf and the Falcons are taking it easy with him; he’s yet to practice this week. Saturday is a key day for Jones, in advance of Monday’s juice game at New Orleans, though context clues point to him playing. Keep in mind the Saints are down both of their starting cornerbacks.
• Willie Snead (toe) is another key receiver who’s iffy for Monday, and like Jones, he’s yet to practice this week. We’ll see if he does anything Saturday. Michael Thomas is an interesting caddy stash if you have it available to you.
• The Jets consider Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) a game-time decision for Sunday’s late start at Kansas City. Marshall did some work at Friday’s practice after missing the two previous days. Marshall does have a history of pushing through aches and pains, so you get the idea he’ll give it a go. But be sure to have a contingency plan ready.

It’s time for another TGIF addition of Deep Sleepers and DFS Bargains. I made good on three of my five picks (Isaiah Crowell, Mike Wallace, and Kyle Rudolph) last week. There’s a lot to sift through after the carnage that was Week 2. Let’s see how things go in Week 3.
To review… all of these players are owned in less than 60 percent of Yahoo leagues (at time of writing) and/or are a significant value in our daily game. They’re not the obvious picks, and they’re not without their risks, but that’s why they’re so cheap and available! I’d never advocate taking all of these guys, but rather utilizing them if a manager were in a pinch at a position or aiming to build a “stars and scrubs” sort of DFS lineup.Sun, 25 Sep8:30 PM EDTChicago at DallasPreview Game

On this serendipitous edition of the program, Brad Evans and Brandon Funston attack the latest fantasy headlines – Corey Coleman hand breakage, Cameron Artis-Payne starting, Brandon Marshall hurting – spinning each for Week 3 purposes. Additionally our undynamic duo do their damnedest to help set lineups by running down a laundry list of fringy players in Start/Sit. Finally, B&B decide whether Charles Sims is believe or make believe material, touch on the TNF affair between the Brissett-led Pats and the “Fightin” Fullers’ and answer your pressing questions.

Fantasy is a speculative game. Predict the future, and you look like a genius. Don’t, and you’re painfully human. Gazing into the crystal ball, here’s our view on six intriguing over/unders for Week 3.
Donning the DFS cap, what commodity is terribly UNDERVALUED in Week 3?
Dalton – MELVIN GORDON ($22). He’s looked great this year and should be more active in the passing game with Danny Woodhead out for the season. The Colts have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing backs this year, making Gordon a steal at this price.

Each week the Noise highlights 10 over-started names whom he believes are destined to implode leave egg on his face. To qualify, each player must be started in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. Speaking as an accountability advocate, I will post results, whether genius or moronic, the following week using the scoring system shown here.

Resources: Yahoo survival pool pick distribution • SurvivorGrid.com Week 2’s biggest killer: Lions losing to Titans (8.01 percent) Week 2’s biggest winner: Panthers beating 49ers (36.73) Total Week 1 eliminations: 17.88 percent My picks: Week 1 — Seattle (W) Week 2 — Detroit (L)
The risk was obvious when I started writing this survival pool advice column on Roto Arcade this season. At some point, I would provide some bad counsel and end up leading a lot of players (plus myself) to elimination. Then I’d have to come right back and convince the rest of you who got this far without my help that it was worth listening to my advice.
I just didn’t think I’d be doing it after week 2.Sun, 25 Sep1:00 PM EDTCleveland at MiamiPreview Game
