Game Day Inactives and Injury Updates – Live!
Seattle's inactive list is out. There are seven players listed but the only significant Fantasy player among them is RB Christine Michael. That will do it for today. See you on Monday with the early waiver wire players.
Charles Clay is ACTIVE. We're expecting big numbers from Clay in this matchup.
Jamaal Charles is OUT, so Knile Davis will be the starter. RB Cyrus Gray is also ACTIVE but won't be worth a Fantasy play.
Cody Latimer is Inactive today but Wes Welker is playing.
Still waiting on the Seahawks inactives.
Vernon Davis is OUT and will not play today.
Carlos Hyde is ACTIVE.
Carson Palmer is OUT, so Drew Stanton will be the starting QB for the Cardinals.
Andre Ellington is ACTIVE and expected to handle a full workload.
Blake Bortles is playing for Jacksonville and Teddy Bridgewater is in for the Vikings.
Danny Woodhead is out with an ankle injury and will not return to the game.
One quick update at 1:05 - The latest word on Jamaal Charles is that he will not play today unless he can convince the team he can protect himself on the field. It's looking increasingly likely that he will not play according to @jayglazer.
If there is any significant news prior to 1 PM, I will come back with an update. Otherwise, the next update will come around 3 PM for the afternoon slate of games.
Allen Hurns is ACTIVE and will play.

11:30 Update - Arian Foster is OUT for today's game.

Jordan Cameron is ACTIVE and will play
11:15 Update – We’re expecting inactives to start rolling in around 11:30.
Adam Schefter tweeted that Shane Vereen is expected to play today.
Schefter also tweeted that Jordan Cameron will play barring a setback in warmups.
Keenan Allen was not spotted on the field for warmups and could very well be a no-go.
Arian Foster is on the field with doctors and the training staff testing his hammy.
Are you ready for some Football?? Welcome to the new Sunday edition of The Xpert Eye. Every Sunday, I’ll be listing all the game day inactives and game time decisions to keep you updated on the very latest information. Updates will appear throughout the morning so check back frequently, especially if you’re waiting to find out who is and isn’t playing today and making lineup decisions. The latest information will appear at the top with a timestamp. Let’s begin the Week 3 information with what we know as of 10 AM.
Game Time Decisions:
Arian Foster – He suffered a hamstring injury and could end up sitting today. That means Alfred Blue could see the majority of the workload for the Texans against the Giants.
Jamaal Charles – The latest word is that he has more of a bruise than a high ankle sprain, which is great news for Charles’ owners but bad news for those who invested heavily in Knile Davis. There is a very good chance that Charles plays today.
Bernard Pierce – He is “highly doubtful” for today. He needs volume to be an effective Fantasy play, so it might be wise to sit him if you have other options, even if he plays.
Vernon Davis – He was on crutches earlier this week. It is doubtful he’ll play.
Shane Vereen – It’s tough to put stock in anything Bill Belichick says about an injury. He practiced on a limited basis. Vereen is boom or bust today, as the Pats could easily pound the Raiders with a ton of Stevan Ridley and limit Vereen’s snaps.
DeAngelo Williams – He practiced Friday but the Panthers promoted a running back off the practice squad, which doesn’t make me confident he’ll play today. His value is limited either way.
Keenan Allen – He practiced in full on Friday and will likely play but I’m not liking his chances to be very productive this week.
Dez Bryant – His shoulder is banged up but he was able to practice both Thursday and Friday and should be good to go. Start him.
Alshon Jeffery – Even at 80 percent he’s worth starting. He’ll play but don’t expect WR1 production.
Brandon Marshall – Similar to Jeffery, he may see limited snaps but will produce enough to be a viable Fantasy play.
DeSean Jackson – He is pumped to play against the Eagles and I would be surprised if he didn’t play a full game.
Jordan Cameron – He’s officially “Questionable” but had a full practice on Friday. He’ll probably play but don’t expect TE1 production.
Maurice Jones-Drew – This is a terrible matchup and he isn’t expected to play. But even if he does, Darren McFadden is expected to get the lion’s share of the workload.
Shaun Hill – He could miss a second week with a quad strain. If he’s out, Austin Davis would get the start.
A.J. Green – He is going to play today. He is wearing an orthotic to ease the pressure on his injured toe. There is no guarantee he’ll make it through the whole game today but you have to have him active.
