Jordan Howard (shoulder) limited in Bears' Wednesday practice
Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard was limited in practice on Wednesday, after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per ESPN's Jeff Dickerson.
Howard managed just seven yards on nine attempts against Tampa Bay. Even being limited in practice is a good sign for his availability after his arm was in a sling earlier in the week.
Taking his injury status into concern, our models currently project Howard for 49.3 rush yards, 0.4 rushing touchdowns, 18.8 receiving yards, and 0.1 receiving touchdowns, for a total of 10.6 FanDuel points in Week 3.
Gerald Everett (thigh) questionable for Rams on Thursday
Los Angeles Rams tight end Gerald Everett is questionable for Thursday night's game against the 49ers after being limited in practice Tuesday, per ESPN's Alden Gonzalez.
Everett turned his three targets into three receptions for 95 yards in his second NFL game in Week 2 versus the Washington Redskins, before exiting in the third quarter due to the injury. Being limited is at least a good sign after he did not participate at all in Monday's practice.
If Everett is able to play tomorrow night, our models project him for just 1.5 receptions, 16.5 receiving yards and 0.1 touchdowns, totaling 3.1 FanDuel points.
DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday for Titans
Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray watched Wednesday's practice, but did not participate, per ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.
Murray is currently considered day-to-day as he battles an ongoing hamstring injury. Even if Murray is active for Week 3's game against the Seattle Seahawks, Derrick Henry is expected to play a large role.
Among the 36 running backs with at least 15 carries this season, Murray's -0.19 Rushing Net Expected Points (NEP) per attempt ranks 32nd -- meaning a league average running back would have scored 0.19 more points than Murray did if put in similar situations -- while Henry's 0.41 ranks first.
Randall Cobb (shoulder) did not practice with Packers on Wednesday
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was held out of Wednesday's practice, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Cobb has not yet been cleared to practice following the MRI on his shoulder Monday. His status will continue to be monitored leading up to Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but this is not a positive sign.
Our models currently project Cobb for 80.31 receptions, 901.58 receiving yards, and 5.33 receiving touchdowns over the remainder of the season.
Jordy Nelson (quad) returned to practice for Packers on Wednesday
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson returned to practice on Wednesday, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Nelson left Sunday night's game early with a groin injury, but practiced in full on Wednesday. His availability for Week 3 is trending in the right direction.
Our models currently project Nelson for 5.4 receptions, 69.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. That would land him 13.6 FanDuel points at a cost of $8,400.
Rob Gronkowski (groin) did not practice Wednesday for Patriots
New England Patriots Rob Gronkowski was held out of practice Wednesday, per The Boston Globe's Ben Volin.
Gronkowski was earlier reported to be practicing Wednesday, following his groin injury in Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. But later reports reveal that he did not participate, despite being in pads on the sideline. He is still expected to play in Week 3 against the Houston Texans.
Our models project Gronkowski for 4.9 receptions, 66.5 receiving yards and 0.9 touchdowns. That makes him our top-projected tight end of the week, with 14.3 FanDuel points at a cost of $8,400
