The Facts: Per Clarence Hill of Star-Telegram.com, Bryant will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
Diehards Line:Following an earlier report which said Bryant had not undergone and MRI, it is now being reported that he will have one today. Once the results are in, we should know more regarding his status for Week 4. For now it does not appear he will miss any time.
The Facts: Per David Helman, Jerry Jones went on a local radio and said that Bryant "has not taken an MRI to my knowledge. So I'm assuming he's on go."
Diehards Line:Bryant suffered the injury in Week 3 after his leg bent awkwardly as he was tackled. He was able to play after the incident. For now, fantasy owners should not be concerned about Bryant’s status. Barring any setbacks, it is likely he plays.
The Facts: Michael Rothstein of ESPN said "don't be surprised" if Washington began to see a larger role as early as Sunday against the Bears
Diehards Line:This is all speculation, but Washington did look like the better runner on Sunday against the Packers. Washington should be picked up off of waivers as it appears he could be a factor in this offense moving forward. Theo Riddick remains the pass catching back out of the backfield.
The Facts: Cook suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 3.
Diehards Line:The Packers have a bye this week which will allow Cook to get some rest. At this time reports are that his ankle is swollen and he could miss some time. Generally high ankle sprain can keep players sidelined for multiple weeks. If Cook misses any time, Richard Rogers could see a heavy workload as the Packers tight end.
The Facts: Langford suffered a sprained ankle in Week 3 against the Cowboys and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
Diehards Line:With Langford on the shelf for the next 4-6 weeks, Jordan Howard should see a heavy workload moving forward. Howard is a must add in all fantasy leagues. We would suggest to stash Langford if you’re able to.
The Facts: The Jets claimed recently released tight end Austin Seferian- Jenkins.
Diehards Line:Seferian- Jenkins was released from the Bucs following an arrest on suspicion of DUI. He will get a fresh start in New York. It is unknown, whether the league will take action and suspend Seferian- Jenkins for his arrest. When he is on the field, the talented tight end offers plenty of upside. He is worth adding to your watch list as he could gain some fantasy value at some point this season.
The Facts: Floyd was cleared on the sidelines on Sunday, but had a headache on Monday and will be in the concussion protocol.
Diehards Line:Floyd suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Bills. If he is forced to miss time, John Brown should get a boost in the offense. We should know more on Floyd later in the week. For now, you can consider him questionable for Week 4.
The Facts: Coach Chip Kelly said, "Colin Kaepernick is our number 2 QB. I don't think he's 100% right now so that's why he's our number 2," per the teams Twitter handle.
Diehards Line:Blaine Gabbert has started every game for the Niners this season but has underwhelmed. Through three games, he has thrown 532 passing yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. At this point it appears that Kaepernick could be given the chance to run this offense. It is definitely a situation to monitor, as this can boost the value of this offense. We will monitor this situation and update you as necessary.
