11:10 a.m.: If you’re starting any Miami Dolphins players in your fantasy lineup Sunday, this news will brighten your mood.

10:45 a.m.:

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is questionable with an ankle injury. He has a potentially enticing matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, but fantasy owners should monitor his progress until kickoff.

9:45 a.m.: Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory is out for Week 2 because of an illness, per the team’s official site.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Houston Texans. This means Spencer Ware once again is a must-start in all fantasy leagues.

9:30 a.m.: Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is questionable to play Sunday, per the Houston Chronicle. Houston plays the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Be cautious if you own Demaryius Thomas on your fantasy team. Even if he does play, he might not be 100 percent.

8 a.m. ET: Week 2 of the 2016 NFL season has arrived, and several star players are battling injuries that have fantasy football owners and oddsmakers concerned.

Chief among them is New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. He missed the Patriots’ season-opening win over the Arizona Cardinals, and he also will miss Sunday’s home opener versus the Miami Dolphins, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Gronk isn’t the only notable player battling an injury entering Week 2, though.
