Week 3 bust alert: Montee Ball
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

We hope Montee Ball fares better than Eddie Lacy and Ryan Mathews this week since the Seahawks have knocked both running backs out in consecutive weeks.

Lacy suffered a concussion and Mathews was carted off with a knee injury. Ball has been OK at best through two games. He had 23 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown and two catches for 16 yards in Week 1 against the Colts and 12 carries for 60 yards and three catches for 29 yards in Week 2 against the Chiefs.

We know Seattle is a tough place to play and only two running backs in the past nine games there have reached double digits in Fantasy points -- Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew and Tampa Bay's Mike James.

If the Broncos are going to win this game it will be with Peyton Manning, not Ball. We would sit Ball if possible in this matchup.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Don't be afraid of Wes Welker in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Wes Welker is allowed to play this week after the NFL and NFLPA agreed to a new drug policy.

You'll have to gauge where Welker fits with your lineup after he's been out for two games, but we like him as a borderline No. 2/3 receiver for this matchup.

Keep in mind the last two slot receivers against the Seahawks in Randall Cobb and Eddie Royal each had six catches, with Cobb scoring a touchdown, and Welker had eight catches for 84 yards against Seattle in the Super Bowl loss.

Don't be afraid of the Denver receivers in this game. Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Welker all still have the chance to shine despite the tough environment and opponent. We don't recommend benching any of them outright.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Wes Welker eligible to return Week 3
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The NFL and NFL Players Association announced Wednesday morning a new agreement on improvements to their policy on performance enhancing substances, which include the use of third-party arbitration appeals of positive tests and implementation of testing for human growth hormone within the next few weeks.

Due to the new policy, the NFL announced Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, who was serving a four-game suspension, will be eligible to return this week.

NFL, NFLPA finishing up new drug policy
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The NFL and the NFL Players Association are finalizing a new drug policy Tuesday evening, and a formal announcement is expected to be made by Wednesday morning, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.

The NFLPA has begun to notify players of the revamped suspensions under the new policy, including Browns receiver Josh Gordon officially having his suspension reduced to 10 games. Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey and Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick are among the handful of players who should be able to rejoin their respective teams Wednesday in preparation of playing in Week 3.

However, Dolphins defenders Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones are not expected to be affected by the change in policy, the Palm Beach Post reports, leaving their suspensions active for two more games.
