Zaviar Gooden Headshot

Lions waive LB Zaviar Gooden Tuesday.

Gooden was a third-round pick of the Titans in 2013, which is pretty indicative of why that organization continues to struggle. Gooden had three combined tackles in one game with Detroit, and he could wind up on a practice squad or catch on with a team that suffers an injury at linebacker.

Khris Middleton Headshot

Khris Middleton (hamstring) is slated to undergo surgery Wednesday in New York.

Middleton is expected to miss six months after he tore his hamstring last week. It will be interesting to see how Milwaukee's rotation will shake out with Middleton out. Jabari Parker will likely play more minutes, but they will mostly be at small forward, which may not help him much for fantasy.

Harrison Barnes Headshot

Harrison Barnes expects to see "a lot" of time at power forward this season.

The Warriors were at their best when Barnes was knocking down corner threes as a power forward, but he couldn't shoot at all during the playoffs. Barnes would presumably only play power forward when Dirk Nowitzki is out of the game, and it is unclear who will back up Barnes at small forward. Barnes could be a sneaky fantasy pick, as his stock could fall if fantasy players remember how terrible he looked in the playoffs.

Joe Johnson Headshot

Jazz coach Quin Snyder said Monday that he's yet to decide whether Joe Johnson will start or come off the bench,

It probably doesn't matter for fantasy, as his mere presence is enough to eliminate most of Alec Burks's and Rodney Hood's fantasy value. The only Utah wing you can trust on a consistent basis is Gordon Hayward, though Burks and Hood are worth watching in case Johnson or Hayward go down with injuries.

Jared Cook Headshot

Packers TE Jared Cook suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 3.

Richard Rodgers will probably worth a pickup in most leagues, though you may be able to wait as the Packers have a Week 4 bye. Rodgers was 11th in PPR scoring among tight ends last season, and while he doesn't have a high ceiling, he should make for a solid bye-week fill-in while Cook is out.

Wilson Ramos Headshot

Nationals C Wilson Ramos will have an MRI on his injured right knee.

Even if the injury is not serious, Ramos is likely done for the regular season. Cameron Rupp and Bruce Maxwell would be decent replacements in one-catcher leagues. In two-catcher formats, your best option is probably to pick up Ramos's replacement, Jose Lobaton. Lobaton is batting .220 with three home runs in 91 at-bats this season.

Matt Ryan Headshot

Matt Ryan injured his left thumb after getting sacked.

Ryan was spotted on the sideline favoring that left thumb, so it will be interesting to see how it affects him the rest of the way. He'll likely just be giving way to Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman for the rest of this outing.
