Eli Manning a worthwhile fill-in for Week 4
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:35 pm ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is available in 51 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, and Jamey Eisenberg targets him as the next-best-thing for Fantasy owners who miss out on Kirk Cousins on waivers this week.

Manning has racked up 40 Fantasy points over the last two weeks and gets to take on a Washington defense that just gave up 32 points to Nick Foles. Manning had just 23 Fantasy points against Washington a year ago, but torched them for 617 passing yards in two games in 2012.  

Manning is never going to be the most attractive Fantasy option, but he might make sense as a fill in for Week 4. 


Doug Martin practices without limitations
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:33 pm ET) Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, who has missed two straight games with a knee injury, "showed no limitations" during practice Monday, reports the Tampa Bay Times. He appears set to return for Week 4 at Pittsburgh.

Hakeem Nicks could have some value for Week 4
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:28 pm ET) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks' Fantasy value for Week 4 against the Titans is likely to depend almost entirely on T.Y. Hilton's availability for Sunday's game.

Nicks caught four passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, but he did the majority of his damage following Hilton's exit from the game. Nicks had just one reception for 12 yards in the first half, hauled in three passes and his touchdown following halftime, when Hilton was no longer around.

Nicks ended up playing 49 percent of the team's snaps, compared to 46 percent for Hilton. The Colts do not use three receivers often, as evidenced by the fact that three different tight ends saw the field for at least 36 percent of the plays in the last two games. If Hilton's ankle injury heals enough for him to play, Nicks will have trouble finding the field, as he did in Week 2, when he plays just 40 percent of the team's snaps.

Nicks might be someone worth picking up on waivers Tuesday night, but he only really has upside if Hilton sits out. 


Lavar Edwards back on Cowboys roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:28 pm ET) The Cowboys announced Tuesday they re-signed defensive end Lavar Edwards to the active roster. Edwards was waived over the weekend.

Josh McCown might need thumb surgery
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown will be re-evaluated by a hand specialist in a week or two to determine if he needs surgery to fix his thumb ligament, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Even if he does not require surgery, McCown could be sidelined several weeks, the paper said.

Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday at Pittsburgh.


Giants appear ready to make change at free safety
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Giants safety Quintin Demps practiced with the first-team defense Tuesday and it appears he will replace Stevie Brown in the starting lineup at free safety Thursday at Washington after Brown was benched Sunday against the Texans.

"We're looking at all the possibilities. We're just trying to get better," defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said, per NJ.com. "It was an internal Giants decision [to make the switch] and I'll just leave it at that."


Travis Kelce's growing role a good thing
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:16 pm ET) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will be a hot name on the waiver wire ahead of Week 4, after breaking through for his first NFL touchdown. Kelce already ranks 10th among tight ends in Fantasy scoring, despite being featured on just 45.1 percent of the team's snaps through three games, a good sign moving forward.

Kelce played just 50 snaps in the team's first two games, but was on the field 47 times on offense in Week 3, 65 percent of the team's plays. He turned that into just three catches for 36 yards, but made up for it with a touchdown, and should get more looks moving forward.

Kelce has a tough matchup on the way in Week 4, as the Chiefs get set to take on the Patriots this Sunday. New England has allowed just 4.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, the third-lowest total in the league. Kelce might not pay immediate dividends as a waiver-wire pickup this week, but his growing role should lead to good things before long. 


Redskins tweak practice squad
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:08 pm ET) The Redskins signed offensive lineman Tevita Stevens to the practice squad and released offensive lineman Braxston Cave from the squad.

49ers make roster moves
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:04 pm ET) The 49ers signed quarterback Josh Johnson and waived tight end Asante Cleveland.

Aaron Rodgers: Relax, we'll be fine
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:01 pm ET) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers' offensive players are facing criticism after Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Lions. Rodgers threw for just 162 yards, and Green Bay averaged 3.5 yards per carry.

Rodgers said the offense isn't playing fast enough or converting enough third downs. "We haven't made it easy on ourselves, but we're a resilient bunch," he said, via NFL.com. "We'll bounce back."

Added Rodgers: "Relax. We're going to be fine."

Green Bay visits the Bears on Sunday.
