Aaron Jones Out For Week 3

Sunday, September 24, 11:38 AM

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (hamstring), who was listed as questionable for Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, has been ruled out for the second straight week. Jones will now miss back-to-back games after tweaking his hamstring in the season opener in Week 1. Fantasy managers hoping to get him back this weekend will now have to wait until Week 4 on a short week next Thursday against the Detroit Lions. Consider Jones very questionable to play in that game as well. AJ Dillon will get another chance to deliver for fantasy managers this Sunday after disappointing in a lead role last weekend, but it won't be easy against a stingy Saints defense. Behind Dillon will be rookie Emanuel Wilson and Patrick Taylor.

Kenneth Gainwell Off The Week 3 Injury Report

Saturday, September 23, 4:45 PM

Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) is off the injury report and will play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The former Memphis star missed last week's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings after suffering a rib injury in Week 1. Gainwell played well on opening weekend against the New England Patriots, totaling 14 rushing attempts for 54 yards. The third-year running back also caught all four targets for 20 receiving yards in the win. Last week, D'Andre Swift filled in for Gainwell, totaling 28 rushing attempts for 175 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings. Fantasy players should expect both running backs to get work Monday night.
