Panthers quarterback Cam Newton came out earlier than normal. He was wearing a black T-shirt with the Martin Luther King quote that said: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

With Chris Ivory ACTIVE, tough to gauge how Jaguars will split up RB chores. Their preseason usage hinted a near 50/50 split between him and T.J. Yeldon, so I'd imagine that's the Week 3 plan if Ivory is up to it.

Delanie Walker is officially INACTIVE. Could help Tajae Sharpe's target total in a big way; I've moved Sharpe up to WR20.

With Rashad Jennings INACTIVE, I've moved Shane Vereen to RB23 and Orleans Darkwa to RB40. Darkwa a deep league flex.

Just crushing, devastating news about the death of Jose Fernandez. He was the most exciting pitcher in the game, with the unreal stuff only a handful of pitchers have ever possessed, and matched that with an infectious enthusiasm, energy and love for the game. He'll be throwing some nasty sliders up there against Babe Ruth and friends in the eternal game.
