Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds (groin) is considered questionable to suit up this Sunday in a Week 3 contest against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. Despite the questionable tag, it would be surprising if Reynolds didn't play this weekend. He was limited in practice on both Wednesday and Thursday before upgrading to a full practice on Friday. The 28-year-old was a popular waiver-wire pickup by fantasy managers this week after a strong start to his 2023 campaign. Through two weeks, Reynolds has put up nine catches on 13 targets for 146 yards and two touchdowns. At least until Jameson Williams returns from his suspension, he could continue to serve as the No. 2 behind Amon-Ra St. Brown. Reynolds is a worthwhile WR4/flex consideration against Atlanta, just double-check he's active on Sunday morning.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua (oblique) returned to practice on Friday, according to beat writer Adam Grosbard. Grosbard added that Nacua was participating in practice during the portion open to the media, so there's a chance it was a limited session. This is an encouraging sign for Nacua, who was held out of practice on Thursday. The Rams have expressed that they want to take it easy on the rookie wideout but they don't anticipate him being limited for their Monday night tilt against the Cincinnati Bengals. Nacua has been a target hog across the first two games of his NFL career, hauling in 25 receptions (35 targets) for 266 scoreless yards. As long as he remains quarterback Matthew Stafford's favorite target, he should be rostered and started in all fantasy football leagues.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said it's too soon for running back Cam Akers to make his team debut in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday after the team just acquired him in a trade from the Los Angeles Rams earlier this week. Akers will likely be inactive with an eye toward playing in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers. Akers' fantasy value could be salvaged this year as a complement to Alexander Mattison after wearing out his welcome with the Rams, but fantasy managers must remember that the 24-year-old now has to learn a completely new offense in short order. Mattison will continue to operate as Minnesota's clear lead back this Sunday, with Ty Chandler serving as a change-of-pace option in the backfield.

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein (groin) was a limited participant at practice on Thursday, per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record. The 35-year-old missed Week 2 with a groin injury while Austin Seibert filled in, but Thursday's return to the field puts him on track for a possible Week 3 return against the division-foe New England Patriots. Fantasy managers will want to check back for Friday's injury report to clarify Zuerlein's status if they're looking to play him on Sunday. "Legatron" could be worthy of streaming consideration in what projects to be a closely-contested matchup against the Pats, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to kickers over the first two weeks.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds (groin) was a limited practice participant on Thursday. The 28-year-old was limited on Wednesday as well, but he appears to be on the right side of questionable for Week 3 versus the Atlanta Falcons since he did not have to exit last Sunday's game with a groin injury. Reynolds seems to have surpassed veteran Marvin Jones Jr. as the No. 2 Lions wideout with Jameson Williams suspended, hauling in nine out of 13 targets for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the early goings. Fantasy managers will want to confirm Reynolds' status on Friday's injury report before inserting him into lineups as a possible WR3 option for Sunday's battle.
