Bills | Devin Singletary quiet in Week 3 Sun Sep 26, 06:29 PM
Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary rushed for 26 yards on 11 carries against the Washington Football Team in Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Singletary didn't break any long runs this week and he was engulfed by 2021 first round pick on a fourth down reception short of the sticks on his most important play of the day. It looks like he is just bye/injury/emergency depth at best with Zack Moss getting all of the red zone work.|

Bills | Zack Moss leads team in rushing Sun Sep 26, 06:24 PM
Buffalo Bills RB Zack Moss rushed for 60 yards on 13 carries against the Washington Football Team in Week 3. He also caught three passes for 31 yards and one touchdown during the game.
|Footballguys view: Moss has gone from seemingly being a healthy scratch in Week 1 to actually having a health issue, to scoring twice in Week 2, to clearly being the more valuable Bills back in Week 3. He'll be a solid RB2 play against the Texans in Week 4.|
Bills | Josh Allen accounts for five touchdowns Sun Sep 26, 06:16 PM
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen went 32-for-43 for 358 yards and four touchdowns against the Washington Football Team in Week 3. He also rushed for nine yards and one touchdown on four carries during the game.
|Footballguys view: Allen had some accuracy troubles last week, but had no such issues against the Washington secondary, which is one we should generally target when setting lineups. Everything came easy for the Bills offense in this one, and it should next week against the Texans too.|

Football Team | Logan Thomas reaches end zone Sun Sep 26, 06:15 PM
Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas caught four passes for 42 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. He was targeted four times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Thomas had a fumble in the first half that helped the Bills open a big lead, but for fantasy made up for it with a garbage time score. He should definitely be in lineups against the Falcons next week.|
Logan Thomas player page
Ravens | Marquise Brown has rough day at the office Sun Sep 26, 05:46 PM
Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown caught three of seven targets for 53 yards in Week 3, at the Detroit Lions, on Sunday, Sept. 26. Brown dropped several passes during the contest.
|Footballguys view: Brown had two long scores glance off of his hands and a third score was perhaps deflected, but also catchable. Lamar Jackson isn't going to abandon him, but this could be a development that helps Mark Andrews heading into a matchup with Denver next week.|
Marquise Brown player page
Football Team | Antonio Gibson posts 104 total yards Sun Sep 26, 05:44 PM
Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson rushed for 31 yards on 12 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. He also caught one passes for 73 yards and one touchdown during the game.
|Footballguys view: Gibson showed his blazing speed taking a short pass to the house, but otherwise he and the Washington offense couldn't get anything. That play made his fantasy day, but the snap split with J.D. McKissic is still tight, so Gibson is more RB2 than RB1 heading into a great matchup with Atlanta.|
Lions | T.J. Hockenson a non-factor vs. Ravens Sun Sep 26, 05:42 PM
Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson made two receptions on as many targets for 10 yards in Week 3, vs. the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
|Footballguys view: Hockenson came crashing back to earth in fantasy leagues as Kalif Raymond and the running backs did the heavy lifting for the passing game. We should still leave Hockenson in lineups against the Bears, but our view of his floor is a lot lower than it was coming into Week 3.|
T.J. Hockenson player page
Football Team | Taylor Heinicke throws two TDs, two INTs Sun Sep 26, 05:38 PM
Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke went 14-for-24 for 212 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. He also rushed for 21 yards and one touchdown on eight carries during the game.
|Footballguys view: Heinicke ran into a tough, disciplined defense and couldn't do very much in the lopsided loss. He will be of better use to us in 2QB/Superflex leagues against the Falcons next week.|
Taylor Heinicke player page
Lions | Jared Goff efficient in losing effort Sun Sep 26, 05:34 PM
Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff completed 22 of 30 for 217 yards without a touchdown or interception in Week 3, vs. the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
|Footballguys view: Goff's numbers were hurt by how close the game was. Next week he could be hurt by the Bears inability to score points.|
Jared Goff player page
Lions | Jamaal Williams productive in last-second loss Sun Sep 26, 05:29 PM
Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams ran 12 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, vs. the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He caught both of his targets for 25 yards.
|Footballguys view: Williams short score made him a decent flex and adequate RB2 this week. He's best held as bye/injury/emergency depth in PPR leagues as he gets about half of the snaps, but less than half of the production in this backfield.|
Jamaal Williams player page
Ravens | Ty'Son Williams irrelevant in Week 3 Sun Sep 26, 05:25 PM
Baltimore Ravens RB Ty'Son Williams ran five times for 22 yards in Week 3, at the Detroit Lions, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He failed to catch his only target.
|Footballguys view: The Ravens curiously abandoned the run in this game and it almost cost them the win. Williams looked better on his late runs, but the backfield falling flat in this great matchup will make it tough to trust any Ravens back going forward.|
Giants | Evan Engram held in check Sun Sep 26, 05:18 PM
New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught two passes for 21 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He was targeted six times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Engram also had a costly fumble. Even with two of the top three receivers hurt and the third not at 100%, Engram is not going to be a fantasy factor. He can be dropped if you were waiting on his return because of poor play from your other tight end options.|
Evan Engram player page
Ravens | Lamar Jackson held in check Sun Sep 26, 05:17 PM
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson passed for 287 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 16-for-31 in Week 3 at the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Sept. 26. He added a team-high seven carries for 58 yards.
|Footballguys view: Marquise Brown dropped two long scores or Jackson would have had the expected huge fantasy day against the woeful Lions defense. It took a desperation 66-yard field goal to win. Jackson will face a much stronger defense at Denver next week.|
Lamar Jackson player page
Giants | Kenny Golladay leads team in receiving Sun Sep 26, 05:13 PM
New York Giants WR Kenny Golladay caught four passes for 64 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He was targeted five times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Golladay might have gotten more work than the team planned on since Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton both went down with hamstring injuries in this one. He'll face a tough Saints secondary next week in hopefully better shape than he was this week as he nursed a hip injury.|
Kenny Golladay player page
Giants | Saquon Barkley plays well in Week 3 Sun Sep 26, 05:06 PM
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He also caught six passes for 43 yards during the game.
|Footballguys view: Barkley was back to a bigger role in the passing game, which was helped by the multiple injuries in the wide receiver group. He was able to dive over the pile for a score, but might not get scoring opportunities next week against the Saints. He should still be in lineups, but lower expectations.|
Saquon Barkley player page
Giants | Daniel Jones throws for 266 yards Sun Sep 26, 05:01 PM
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones went 24-for-35 for 266 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He also rushed for 39 yards on eight carries during the game.
|Footballguys view: Jones lost Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton during the game and Kenny Golladay isn't 100% so we can't put this completely on him. He'll face a much tougher Saints defense next week and will go back to the bench in 2QB/Superflex leagues.|
Daniel Jones player page
Falcons | Kyle Pitts quiet again Sun Sep 26, 04:52 PM
Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts caught two passes for 35 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was targeted three times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Pitts was a forgotten man until the fourth quarter. He drew a pass interference penalty in the end zone, but Ryan found Lee Smith for the touchdown instead of Pitts. He should still be a fantasy option against Washington next week, but Pitts usage and results have been disappointing through three games.|
Falcons | Eight receptions for Calvin Ridley Sun Sep 26, 04:48 PM
Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught eight passes for 61 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was targeted 11 times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Ridley has been getting the target share we expected, but this pass offense just isn't threatening opponents downfield. He's more high floor WR2 than WR1, but the Washington matchup was good for Buffalo receivers this week, so Ridley could have a ceiling game.|
Calvin Ridley player page
Falcons | Cordarrelle Patterson over 100 total yards Sun Sep 26, 04:36 PM
Atlanta Falcons RB/WR Cordarrelle Patterson caught six passes for 82 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 20 yards on seven carries.
|Footballguys view: Patterson has quickly made himself an essential part of this horizontal passing offense and a quality option in PPR leagues no matter what position he is eligible at in your league. Keep him in mind as a PPR RB2/WR3/Flex next week against the Football Team.|
Cordarrelle Patterson player page
Falcons | Matt Ryan throws two TDs Sun Sep 26, 04:02 PM
Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 27-for-36 for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants in Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Ryan didn't exactly light it up, as this is a very limited downfield passing offense, but it was enough against a Giants team that lost two of their top three receivers during the game. He's still a low level option even in 2QB/Superflex leagues. The Falcons get a win that could affect the order of the top 10 of the draft and host Washington next week.|
Matt Ryan player page
Steelers | Chukwuma Okorafor ruled out Sun Sep 26, 03:49 PM
Pittsburgh Steelers OT Chukwuma Okorafor (head) left the Week 3 game because of a head injury and will not return.
|Footballguys view: We're not sure if anyone will notice that a starter for the Steelers offensive line is out.|
Colts | High-ankle sprain for Quenton Nelson? Sun Sep 26, 03:33 PM
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts OG Quenton Nelson (ankle) is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain during the Week 3 game, according to a source. X-rays on the ankle were negative, but Nelson is scheduled to undergo more tests.
|Footballguys view: Nelson is the cornerstone of this line. The magnitude of this loss for the offense can't be overstated as the team is 0-3 and watching the season slip away while the Eagles hold their first round pick if Carson Wentz plays 75% of the snaps this season.|
Packers | Kevin King ruled out Sun Sep 26, 03:28 PM
Green Bay Packers CB Kevin King (illness) has been ruled out of the Week 3 game because of an illness.
|Footballguys view: King was a liability in the Packers secondary, so this might actually be a bad development for the 49ers passing game. First round pick Eric Stokes will be relied on more this week.|
Kevin King player page
Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster injures ribs Sun Sep 26, 03:25 PM
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) left the Week 3 game early because of injured ribs and will not return.
|Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster will be evaluated further but has to be considered questionable for next week's game at Green Bay at best. Chase Claypool and Najee Harris dominated targets with Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson out.|
JuJu Smith-Schuster player page
Titans | A.J. Brown will not return Sun Sep 26, 03:12 PM
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) will not return to the Week 3 game because of his hamstring injury.
|Footballguys view: Brown has to be considered questionable at best for the Titans in their road game against the Jets next week. The Titans got a good effort from their bench receivers after he went out, and they shouldn't need Brown to win next week.|
A.J. Brown player page
Vikings | Week 3 Minnesota Vikings inactives Sun Sep 26, 03:03 PM
The Minnesota Vikings have declared OT Christian Darrisaw, DE James Lynch, LB Anthony Barr, RB Dalvin Cook, QB Kellen Mond, DE Patrick Jones II and CB Harrison Hand inactive for Week 3.
|Footballguys view: This was expected as the Vikings want to let Cook's ankle issue heal more before using him and they trust Alexander Mattison to carry the load. Cook should be considered questionable for next week's game against Cleveland.|
Anthony Barr player page
Dalvin Cook player page
Rams | Darrell Henderson ruled out Sun Sep 26, 02:59 PM
Los Angeles Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ribs) has been declared inactive for the Week 3 game.
|Footballguys view: No surprise here. Henderson should be considered questionable for next week's game against the Cardinals.|

Jets | Week 3 New York Jets inactives Sun Sep 26, 02:43 PM
The New York Jets have declared WR Jamison Crowder, WR Denzel Mims, RB Tevin Coleman, DT Jonathan Marshall and RB La'Mical Perine inactive for Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Mims is outside of the coaches circle of trust. This could be his last year with the team.|

Dolphins | Week 3 Miami Dolphins inactives Sun Sep 26, 02:41 PM
The Miami Dolphins have declared WR Preston Williams, WR Albert Wilson, DB Elijah Campbell, CB Trill Williams and OT Greg Little inactive for Week 3.
|Footballguys view: With Will Fuller back, the Dolphins deep wide receiver group won't need Wilson and Williams.|

Raiders | Week 3 Las Vegas Raiders inactives Sun Sep 26, 02:39 PM
The Las Vegas Raiders have declared DE Malcolm Koonce, S Roderic Teamer, RB Josh Jacobs, TE Nick Bowers, S Dallin Leavitt, DL Damion Square and OT Jackson Barton inactive for Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Peyton Barber and Kenyan Drake will split the workload in the backfield with Jacobs sitting again. Jacobs is questionable at best for the matchup with the Raiders next week.|

Patriots | James White carted off Sun Sep 26, 02:11 PM
New England Patriots RB James White (hip) was carted off the field during the Week 3 game because of a hip injury and has been ruled out.
|Footballguys view: JJ Taylor will get more opportunity with White out. White is a captain and important part of a limited offense. This is a bad development for Mac Jones and company.|
James White player page
Colts | Quenton Nelson questionable to return Sun Sep 26, 02:09 PM
Indianapolis Colts OG Quenton Nelson (ankle) was carted to the locker room after suffering an ankle injury during the Week 3 game. He is considered questionable to return.
|Footballguys view: Nelson is a crucial piece of the Colts offensive line. They'll hope he can get healthy enough to play against the Dolphins next week.|
Giants | Sterling Shepard leaves early Sun Sep 26, 02:06 PM
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 3 game and will not return.
|Footballguys view: The Giants are down two starting receivers. Kenny Golladay is the healthiest starter right now, and the Giants also got Evan Engram back today at tight end.|
Sterling Shepard player page
Giants | Darius Slayton injured Sun Sep 26, 01:42 PM
New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 3 game and has been ruled out.
|Footballguys view: Slayton was set up for a big game against a weak Falcons pass defense. CJ Board and Kadarius Toney will get more work in his absence.|
Darius Slayton player page
Giants | Blake Martinez will not return Sun Sep 26, 01:40 PM
New York Giants LB Blake Martinez (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 3 game and has been ruled out.
|Footballguys view: Martinez is best linebacker on the Giants roster, so this is a big loss for the defense.|
Blake Martinez player page
Titans | Hamstring injury for A.J. Brown Sun Sep 26, 01:33 PM
Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 3 game and is considered questionable to return.
|Footballguys view: Brown has had some trouble with drops already this year and now he is sidelined. The team isn't working on his hamstring on the sidelines, so we think that is likely the end of the day for him. Chester Rogers already has a touchdown and will replace Jones in the starting lineup.|
A.J. Brown player page
Steelers | Week 3 Pittsburgh Steelers inactives Sun Sep 26, 11:41 AM
The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared CB Ahkello Witherspoon, LB Alex Highsmith, LB T.J. Watt, WR Diontae Johnson, QB Dwayne Haskins and OG Rashaad Coward inactive for Week 3.
|Footballguys view: With Johnson out, James Washington will get on the field in three wide sets and Juju Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool could see more targets.|

The Los Angeles Chargers have declared LB Amen Ogbongbemiga, QB Easton Stick, RB Joshua Kelley, DT Justin Jones, OT Brenden Jaimes, TE Tre' McKitty and CB Chris Harris Jr. inactive for Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Joey Bosa will play, but it's not certain how effective he'll be or how many snaps he will get in the showdown with Patrick Mahomes.|

Buccaneers | Leonard Fournette likely to receive start Sun Sep 26, 11:10 AM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is expected to be the starting running back for the Buccaneers in Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Fournette has been the lead back even though he wasn't the official starter. Consider him a flex play with upside or a fine RB2 if you're in a pinch today.|
Leonard Fournette player page
Bears | Andy Dalton could miss another week or two Sun Sep 26, 10:12 AM
Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee), who has already been ruled out for Week 3's game against the Cleveland Browns, could miss an additional one to two weeks depending on how quickly he recovers from a bone bruise on his left knee, according to multiple league sources.
|Footballguys view: If Justin Fields can lead the Bears to a win today, it may not matter when Dalton is ready to play.|
Andy Dalton player page
Giants | Kenny Golladay a game-time decision Sun Sep 26, 08:53 AM
New York Giants WR Kenny Golladay (hip) is considered a game-time decision for Week 3's game. He must prove that he can run at full speed during pregame workouts before he is cleared to play.
|Footballguys view: Golladay is a risky boom/bust play in typical leagues despite the great matchup against the Falcons. Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard are better options from the Giants passing game.|
Kenny Golladay player page
Chargers | Joey Bosa a game-time decision Sun Sep 26, 08:33 AM
Los Angeles Chargers DE Joey Bosa (foot, ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Week 3's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. Despite experiencing some soreness, he has shown improvement each day and reportedly has a very realistic chance of getting on the field.
|Footballguys view: Bosa's status is too dicey to risk in IDP lineups, but it is encouraging for the longer term prognosis of his injury.|
Joey Bosa player page
Colts | Carson Wentz plans to start Sat Sep 25, 09:24 PM
Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz (ankles) is planning on starting against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: Wentz may be limited in his mobility, which is a key part of his game, so he's only a low ceiling QB2/Superflex this week. The offense may not get that big of a boost from his return.|
Carson Wentz player page
Buccaneers | Antonio Brown to sit Week 3 Sat Sep 25, 04:58 PM
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown (illness) did not travel with the team Saturday, Sept. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams.
|Footballguys view: Scott Miller and Tyler Johnson will be the next men up and likely split the snaps vacated by Brown, but both are mere desperation plays.|
Antonio Brown player page
Cowboys | Amari Cooper left off Week 3 injury report Sat Sep 25, 04:17 PM
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (rib) was removed from the injury report Saturday, Sept. 25, and is expected to play without limitations in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
|Footballguys view: Cooper's weekly upside is as good as any receiver in the league. This is your clearance to play him and not worry his injury status coming out of Week 2.|
Amari Cooper player page
Dolphins | Jacoby Brissett slated for starts Sat Sep 25, 03:17 PM
Miami Dolphins QB Jacoby Brissett is in line to start at least the next three games after QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Sept. 25, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: Tagovailoa has to miss at least three weeks since he's on IR. Brissett struggled in Week 2 and Fantasy GMs should downgrade all Dolphins skill position players.|
Jacoby Brissett player page
Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa lands on IR Sat Sep 25, 03:02 PM
Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) on Saturday, Sept. 25, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
|Footballguys view: This means the Dolphins quarterback will miss at least three weeks. That will give him time to heal from this painful ribs injury. In the meantime, Jacoby Brissett will be the team's starter. Brissett starting means Fantasy GMs should downgrade Dolphins skill position players.|
Rams | Buddy Howell added to roster Sat Sep 25, 02:52 PM
Los Angeles Rams RB Buddy Howell on Saturday, Sept. 25, was activated to the active roster from the practice squad.
|Footballguys view: This could be a sign for Darrell Henderson's availability in Week 3. Henderson is a game-time decision due to a ribs injury. Sony Michel would get the start against the Buccaneers if Henderson can't play. Jake Funk would be the pass-catching back behind Michel in that case, and Howell would give them a third running back on the depth chart. Stay tuned.|
Buddy Howell player page
Eagles | Miles Sanders not injury report Sat Sep 25, 02:33 PM
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (chest) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Sept. 25, and was not listed with a game-status designation on the team's Week 3 injury report.
|Footballguys view: Sanders is good to go for the Week 3 Monday night game against the Cowboys. Fantasy GMs can count on Sanders as a RB2 with upside.|
Miles Sanders player page
Colts | DeMichael Harris elevated from PS Sat Sep 25, 01:05 PM
Indianapolis Colts WR DeMichael Harris on Saturday, Sept. 25, was elevated to the active roster from the practice squad.
|Footballguys view: Harris is a reserve receiver and return specialist. The Colts can have some packages for him, like they did last year at times during his rookie season, but Fantasy GMs in crazy deep dynasty formats are the only ones who could be monitoring Harris.|
