#HeadlineSummaryPublished 
1.Austin Pettis (RotoWire) Pettis tallied a touchdown with three catches for 28 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Analysis: Pettis took advantage of Tavon Austin's absence, getting as many targets as No. 1 wideout Brian Quick. While Sunday was a decent fantasy output for Pettis, Austin may return after the Rams' bye and Pettis will be a touchdown-dependent option.less than a minute
2.Jared Cook (RotoWire) Cook was Austin Davis' favorite target in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys, registering seven catches for 75 yards. Analysis: Cook is still without a touchdown on the season, but he did have his best game of 2014. He'll typically get you four to six catches for about 50 yards a game, and is bound to catch a TD pass one of these days.less than a minute
3.Jairus Byrd (RotoWire) Byrd made six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: Byrd has been somewhat of a disappointment for IDP owners thus far, as he's managed 15 tackles but has yet to pick off a pass and only has one pass defended through three games. The tackle total is right on pace with Byrd's average over the last few years - he averaged 87 tackles per season from 2010 to 2012 - but fantasy owners expected more in pass defense, as he snagged 17 interceptions over the last four season. Still, Byrd missed most of the training camp and preseason following offseason back surgery, so it may take some time for him to become a... (More)less than a minute
4.Lance Kendricks (RotoWire) Kendricks caught six passes for 29 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 defeat at the hands of Dallas on Sunday. Analysis: Kendricks didn't get a lot of yardage Sunday, but made up for it with several catches to go with his score. The Rams threw the ball quite a bit on Sunday, which may lead to more opportunities for Kendricks after the bye. As the second option at tight end, however, it's a crapshoot on what Kendricks will do from week to week.less than a minute
5.Corey White (RotoWire) White made three tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win against the Vikings, playing 98 percent of the defensive snaps, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Analysis: White took over the starting cornerback position, opposite Keenan Lewis, with Patrick Robinson relegated to special teams play following his demotion from the starting lineup. While Sunday's performance was nothing to write home about against the run-oriented Vikings, White could be a sneaky IDP option going forward, as he should have plenty of opportunities to rack up stats with teams likely avoiding Lewis' side of the field.less than a minute
6.Jarvis Jones (RotoWire) Jones will likely require wrist surgery, which would sideline the linebacker indefinitely, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: With Jones, who has recorded 14 tackles and two sacks in three games, slated to miss time, Arthur Moats is in line to move up a peg and man the Steelers' right outside linebacker slot.less than a minute
7.Alec Ogletree (RotoWire) Ogletree picked up 10 tackles, including a tackle for loss, in a 34-31 loss to Dallas on Sunday. Analysis: Ogletree is off to a solid start to the season, with a forced fumble to go with 19 tackles. He's off on Week 4, but will be busy with the Eagles come Week 5.less than a minute
8.Robert Quinn (RotoWire) Quinn provided two tackles (one for loss) Sunday but the Rams fell to the Cowboys 34-31. Analysis: Opposing offensive lines have solved Quinn thus far this season, as he has been held without a sack and to only seven tackles. IDP owners have to be concerned about Quinn's output, as this is an incredibly slow start for the star defensive end.less than a minute
9.Ramon Humber (RotoWire) Starting in place of the injured David Hawthorne, Humber made three tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: From an IDP standpoint, it was an uninspiring performance, though the Saints' defense as a whole performed admirably in holding Minnesota to only nine points. If Hawthorne misses any further time, Humber will likely continue to start, though the career backup is merely an average IDP option, at best.less than a minute
10.Janoris Jenkins (RotoWire) Jenkins added five tackles to his interception for a touchdown in a 34-31 loss to Dallas on Sunday. Analysis: Pick-sixes were a big part of Jenkins' rookie season, but he went without a touchdown in 2013. He has bounced back thus far, however, tallying 15 tackles to go with an interception and touchdown in three games. He'll have his hands full with Nick Foles and the Eagles when the Rams return from bye, however.less than a minute
11.Marcus Easley (RotoWire) Easley is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with an MCL sprain, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. Analysis: Easley has yet to record a reception in three games to date, but his absence will represent a hit to the Bills' special teams.less than a minute
12.Ryan Shazier (RotoWire) Shazier suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's win over the Panthers, ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Shazier is slated to undergo an MRI on Monday, but he'll presumably miss time, which sets the stage for Sean Spence to see added work at left inside linebacker for the Steelers.less than a minute
13.T.J. McDonald (RotoWire) McDonald registered four tackles Sunday as St. Louis lost to Dallas 34-31. Analysis: McDonald was a candidate for NFC Defensive Player of the Week last week with two blocked kicks and five tackles, but had a rougher game against Dallas. The Rams' secondary was torched in the second half, and things don't get easier after the bye against the Eagles' prolific offense.less than a minute
14.Shayne Graham (RotoWire) Graham missed one of his three extra point attempts and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: Graham likely has some leash after emerging victorious from a tight kicking competition this offseason, but he did himself no favors with a low kick that was blocked on an extra point attempt. More importantly, with the Saints' offense in a rut, Graham hasn't been asked to do much through the first three games, accumulating only 18 total points. Still, Drew Brees and company have accrued enough goodwill to think that better days lie ahead for the offense, as well as Graham, and a Week 4 matchup agains... (More)less than a minute
15.Justin Hunter (RotoWire) Hunter recorded three catches (seven targets) for 37 yards in Tennessee's blowout loss to the Bengals on Sunday. Analysis: Hunter has been targeted at least six times in each of Tennessee's first three games, but only has eight receptions for 126 yards overall. He's also yet to have reached the end zone. Nonetheless, it should be noted Hunter did make a bigger impact than fellow wideout Nate Washington, who was held without a catch against Cincinnati. The Titans head to Indianapolis in Week 4.less than a minute
16.Patrick Robinson (RotoWire) Robinson made two tackles (both solo) in Sunday's win against the Vikings, but he played only one defensive snap, according to theNew Orleans Times-Picayune, as he contributed primarily on defense following his demotion form the starting lineup. Analysis: With Corey White taking over the starting cornerback spot opposite Keenan Lewis, Robinson was relegated to special teams' duties, with the Saints preferring to deploy three safeties in their nickel packages rather than letting Robinson take the field in coverage. With the team's defensive success - though taken with a grain of salt against a Vikings' attack led mainly by rookie T... (More)less than a minute
17.Kendall Wright (RotoWire) Wright had five catches for 44 yards in Tennessee's loss to Cincinnati on Sunday. Analysis: Wright was targeted a team-high 10 times, but managed only five receptions in the blowout defeat. It's been a rough start to the season for the third-year wideout, who's averaging 40.3 receiving yards through Tennessee's first three games. Wright figures to have more success Week 4 against an Indianapolis defense that's allowing 276.3 passing yards per game so far this season.less than a minute
18.Greg Zuerlein (RotoWire) Zuerlein hit his one field goal attempt to go with four PATs in a 34-31 loss to Dallas on Sunday. Analysis: Zuerlein's off to a great start in 2014 after a slow preseason, connecting on seven of eight field goals including a few lengthy ones. He's a decent option at kicker and may not be owned in some leagues.less than a minute
19.James Laurinaitis (RotoWire) Laurinaitis totaled nine tackles Sunday as the Rams fell to the Cowboys 34-31. Analysis: Laurinaitis is leading the Rams in tackles thus far, with 20 in 2014. He will battle with Alec Ogletree for the tackle lead all season, and should give you 110-120 tackles by the end of the year.less than a minute
20.Junior Galette (RotoWire) Galette managed seven tackles (four solo) and a sack in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: Galette now has two sacks in three games, picking up right where he left off after 12 sacks in his breakout 2013 campaign. The knock on Galette last year, however, was his inability to contribute outside of rushing the quarterback, as he had a measly 40 tackles from his outside linebacker position. This year, however, Galette seems to be coming into his own as an every-down linebacker, as he's racked up a solid 15 tackles to couple with his sack-happy performances. If he can continue his well-rounded play, Galette could prove to be ... (More)less than a minute
21.Patriots | Tom Brady's calf could be an issue (KFFL) New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) could have a legit calf injury because his touch and velocity has been off in the early part of the season. Brady also rushed a few throws in Week 2 after taking some hits the previous week. Brady appears to have a lack of trust with his offensive line, in the opinion of beat writer Chad Finn.less than a minute
22.Curtis Lofton (RotoWire) Lofton made eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: Lofton spent an atypical amount of time in the Vikings' backfield, contributing two tackles for losses, as well as a quarterback hit. If Lofton plays downhill more frequently, he could have added value, though historically he has spent little time blitzing (only seven sacks in 99 career games). Still, with 24 tackles through three games, the uber-consistent Lofton remains on target to surpass the 100-tackle mark for the sixth season in a row.less than a minute
23.Packers | Jarrett Boykin struggling (KFFL) Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin dropped two catchable throws Sunday, Sept. 21, and QB Aaron Rodgers' confidence in him may be waning.less than a minute
24.Dan Bailey (RotoWire) Bailey set a Cowboys record by connecting on his 28th straight field goal attempt during Sunday's win over the Rams. Analysis: He finished the day with four PATs and two FGs, and remains one of the safest kicking options available.less than a minute
25.Cameron Jordan (RotoWire) Jordan made two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: The sack was Jordan's first of the year, a welcomed site for fantasy owners. With only five tackles in three games, Jordan remains well off last year's pace, when he managed 47 tackles, but hopefully Sunday's quarterback takedown will set him up to get on a roll.less than a minute
26.Morris Claiborne (RotoWire) Claiborne recorded three tackles and a fourth quarter interception that snuffed out the Rams' final drive in Sunday's come-from-behind 34-31 win. Analysis: With Orlando Scandrick back in the lineup from his suspension, Claiborne stepped up and staked his claim to a starting spot. Both corners will likely see plenty of snaps next week against the pass-happy Saints, though, regardless of who gets named the starter opposite Brandon Carr.less than a minute
27.Colts | T.Y. Hilton should be OK (KFFL) Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is not expected to have a severe ankle injury, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.less than a minute
28.Orlando Scandrick (RotoWire) Scandrick returned to the lineup Sunday, recording five tackles. Analysis: Mo Claiborne had one of his better games as a pro on Sunday, so the competition is on for the starting cornerback spot opposite Brandon Carr. Given how many three receiver sets the Cowboys will likely face next week against the Saints though, expect both Scandrick and Claiborne to see plenty of action regardless of who gets named the starter.less than a minute
29.49ers | Frank Gore's role dwindling (KFFL) San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore had just 10 yards on six carries Sunday, Sept. 21. He received 16 carries in Week 1 and 13 carries in Week 2.less than a minute
30.Bruce Carter (RotoWire) Carter had a huge game Sunday, recording 12 tackles and returning a fourth-quarter interception 25 yards for what proved to be the game-clinching touchdown. Analysis: For one game at least, Carter looked like the player the Cowboys thought he could become after his rookie season. Depending on the health of the rest of the linebacking corps, he could keep flipping between the weak side and strong side, but hopefully Carter can build some confidence heading into Week 4's matchup against the Saints.less than a minute
31.Anthony Hitchens (RotoWire) In his first NFL start, Hitchens racked up 13 tackles during Sunday's win over the Rams. Analysis: Rolando McClain is expected back in the lineup next week, which will likely push Hitchens back to the bench, but he's now demonstrated that he can be a useful IDP asset when he gets the chance.less than a minute
32.Ryan Grant (RotoWire) Grant did not see much action in Week 3, recording zero receptions on one target. Analysis: Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson recorded 16 catches for 255 yards. Grant's opportunities will be limited while he battles for playing time.less than a minute
33.Lions | Alex Henery coming aboard (KFFL) Detroit Lions PK Nate Freese appears to have lost his job, and the team plans to sign free-agent PK Alex Henery Monday, Sept. 22.less than a minute
34.Jason Witten (RotoWire) Witten caught four of his five targets for 49 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams. Analysis: The Cowboys' increased focus on the running game has hit Witten the hardest so far, as not only are their fewer non-Dez Bryant targets to go around, but he's also called on to block more often than he was in the past. Witten's still capable of turning in a big game if he gets a chance, but unless the team's offensive mix becomes more pass-happy again, it might be time to stop viewing Witten as an every-week starter.less than a minute
35.Logan Paulsen (RotoWire) Paulsen caught two passes on two targets for seven yards in Week 3. Analysis: Niles Paul has seen the majority of tight end touches since Jourdan Reed (hamstring) went down in Week 1. Paulsen will still see time on the field primarily has a blocker and in the red zone.less than a minute
36.Andre Roberts (RotoWire) Roberts caught four passes on six targets for 38 yards in Week 3. Analysis: Roberts was fourth in targets on the team. He appears to still be ahead of Ryan Grant (only one target) on the depth chart after Grant had a strong game in Week 2.less than a minute
37.Travaris Cadet (RotoWire) Cadet carried twice for nine yards in the Saints' win against the Vikings on Sunday. Analysis: With Mark Ingram sidelined, Cadet moves into third in the Saints' running back pecking order. He will likely see a few carries or receptions here and there, as well as continue to return kicks - of which there were none this week - but his value is capped as long as Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson remain healthy.less than a minute
38.Steve McLendon (RotoWire) McLendon collected two tackles (both solo) including a sack in the Steelers' 37-19 win against Carolina on Sunday. Analysis: The sack was one of three for Pittsburgh in the game, and McLendon's first since 2012. He has done a solid job since taking over the nose tackle position from Casey Hampton, but not enough to earn serious IDP consideration.less than a minute
39.Roy Helu (RotoWire) Helu (knee) rushed one time for a one yard touchdown and caught one pass for 55 yards in Week 3. Analysis: Helu barely saw the field in Week 3 but had one big catch and a touchdown on his only rush.less than a minute
40.Darrel Young (RotoWire) Young (neck) rushed one time for a yard and caught one pass for four yards and a touchdown in Week 3. Analysis: Young does not get many touches or targets but they have all been near the end zone so far this year.less than a minute
41.Kenny Stills (RotoWire) Stills caught four passes on five targets for 38 yards in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: Opposing defenses have done a nice job of limiting the Saints' explosive plays downfield, a spot in which Stills excels. While Stills saw a healthy number of targets, his value will continue to be capped if he can't break some big plays in the passing game, as Jimmy Graham and Brandin Cooks have gobbled up most of the short and intermediate passes. As such, he remains a risky week-to-week option until the Saints' offense finds its groove.less than a minute
42.Henry Melton (RotoWire) Melton reinjured his groin during Sunday's win over the Rams, the Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: According to Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones, Melton played through the issue for most of the game, but finished with just one tackle. The team's big free agent addition has yet to make much of an impact in Dallas.less than a minute
43.Josh Hill (RotoWire) Hill caught two passes on two targets, including a 34-yard touchdown grab, in Sunday'w in against the Vikings. Analysis: With normal backup tight end Ben Watson leaving the game with an undisclosed injury, Hill stepped into a larger role. Hill's performance is likely an anomaly, but his name should be on the fantasy radar, as he would assume the role of backup to Jimmy Graham if Watson misses time.less than a minute
44.Sean Spence (RotoWire) Spence collected four tackles (all solo) against Carolina on Sunday. Analysis: If Ryan Shazier (knee) misses any significant playing time, Spence could see an increase in defensive snaps. Shazier is being evaluated on Monday, so we will have to take a wait-and-see approach for Pittsburgh's Week 4 game against the Buccaneers.less than a minute
45.Jason Hatcher (RotoWire) Hatcher suffered a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter, the Washington Post reports. He did not return to the game. Analysis: The team plays Thursday in Week 4 so expect Hatcher to miss some practice time this week.less than a minute
46.William Gay (RotoWire) Gay recorded three tackles (one solo) in the Steelers' 37-19 win against Carolina on Sunday. Analysis: With a potential season-ending injury to Ike Taylor (broken arm), Gay is in line to see a significant increase in playing time, which could translate to decent IDP numbers. His first opportunity will come against Tampa Bay and back-up quarterback Mike Glennon in Week 4.less than a minute
47.Brian Orakpo (RotoWire) Orakpo suffered a finger injury Sunday, the Washington Post reports. Analysis: It sounds like Orakpo dislocated his finger. He be evaluated by a hand specialist this week.less than a minute
48.Marques Colston (RotoWire) Colston caught two passes on five targets for 25 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown reception, in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Analysis: A week after he failed to catch a pass for the first time in 86 games, it was looking again like Colston could be shut out of the reception department before hauling in two late grabs, including the touchdown, to save the day for fantasy owners. Colston will surely have nice performances going forward but it's looking more like it's going to be difficult to trust the previously-reliable Colston on a weekly basis, with Jimmy Graham having clearly passed him in the receiving pecking order ... (More)less than a minute
49.Alfred Morris (RotoWire) Morris suffered a minor knee injury Sunday, but was able to return to the field after being evaluated, the Washington Post reprots. Analysis: Morris finished the game with 23 rushes for 77 yards. The Skins have a quick turnaround, as they play Thursday this week, so he may receive some rest in practice.less than a minute
50.Troy Polamalu (RotoWire) Polamalu totaled four tackles against the Panthers on Sunday. Analysis: Not his best effort on the season, but the defense as a whole came through with three sacks and two fumble recoveries, including one for a touchdown. Polamalu will have an opportunity for a big game in Week 4 against Tampa Bay.less than a minute
51.Raiders | Derek Carr has way with Revis (KFFL) Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was 5-for-6 on passes against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis Sunday, Sept. 21. That is tied for the second-most receptions Revis has allowed in a game in the last six seasons.less than a minute
52.Panthers | Cam Newton took shot to knee (KFFL) Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (knee) took a hit to his knees late in the game Sunday, Sept. 21, and came up limping. He said after the game that he felt fine.less than a minute
53.Mike Mitchell (RotoWire) Mitchell recorded five tackles (all solo) in Pittsburgh's 37-19 win against Carolina on Sunday. Analysis: Facing his former team, Mitchell turned in a solid effort, and now has 17 tackles on the season. There is potential for a big game in Week 4 against Tampa Bay and back-up quarterback Mike Glennon.less than a minute
54.Robert Golden (RotoWire) Golden recorded one tackle (solo) and a fumble recovery for a touchdown against Carolina on Sunday. Analysis: An injury to Ike Taylor (broken arm) could result in additional defensive snaps for Golden, who has been used primarily on special teams through three games this season.less than a minute
55.Lawrence Timmons (RotoWire) Timmons totaled six tackles (four solo) in Pittsburgh's 37-19 win over Carolina on Sunday. Analysis: Timmons leads the Steelers with 24 tackles through three games, but is still without a sack this season. Injuries to Ryan Shazier (knee) and Jarvis Jones (wrist) are a serious blow to Pittsburgh's linebacking corps, which will lean heavily on a veteran Timmons in Week 4 against the Buccaneers.less than a minute
56.Patriots | Tom Brady leaning on Julian Edelman (KFFL) New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has completed 84.6 percent of his passes to WR Julian Edelman. He has completed just 51.1 percent of his passes to other players.less than a minute
57.Steelers | Jarvis Jones needs surgery (KFFL) Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jarvis Jones (wrist) will require surgery on his wrist injury suffered Sunday, Sept 21.less than a minute
58.Cortez Allen (RotoWire) Allen led the Steelers with seven tackles (six solo) in their 37-19 win against the Panthers on Sunday. Analysis: Pittsburgh turned in one of its best defensive efforts, but suffered injuries to three defensive starters, including Ike Taylor (broken arm). Allen, and fellow defensive back William Gay, will need to pick-up the slack in Taylor's absence.less than a minute
59.Shaun Suisham (RotoWire) Suisham was perfect in Pittsburgh's 37-19 romp of Carolina on Sunday, hitting all three field goal attempts (24, 42, 45) and all four extra point conversions. Analysis: Suisham has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners, connecting on eight-of-eight field goals and seven-of-seven extra points through three games. With Tampa Bay up next in Week 4, he should continue to be a viable kicking option for fantasy owners.less than a minute
60.Steelers | Ike Taylor has broken arm (KFFL) Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers CB Ike Taylor (forearm) suffered a broken forearm Sunday, Sept. 21, and is out indefinitely.less than a minute
61.Packers | Eddie Lacy struggling (KFFL) Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had five of 11 carries Sunday, Sept. 21, go for no gain or negative yardage. Lacy acknowledged defenses may know how to contain him with a year's worth of tape on him now. "That could be it," Lacy said. "But no matter what it is, it's still my job. I'm still supposed to be able to run the ball in and make sure - not every run is going to be 10 yards - but make sure we get something positive."less than a minute
62.Vikings | Chad Greenway hurt (KFFL) Minnesota Vikings LB Chad Greenway (ribs) left the team's game Sunday, Sept. 21 against the New Orleans Saints due to a rib injury.1 hour
63.MarQueis Gray fills in for Rudolph (Rotoworld) MarQueis Gray was the Vikings' primary pass-catching tight end after Kyle Rudolph (groin) left late in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Analysis: Gray, an H-back type, saw no targets on 11 snaps. If Rudolph is going to miss time, the Vikings will theoretically need to force feed Cordarrelle Patterson more. They've oddly shown no urgency in that department yet.1 hour
64.Raiders | Tyvon Branch injured (KFFL) Oakland Raiders SS Tyvon Branch (foot) sustained a fractured foot during his team's 16-9 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, Sept. 21. His status for future weeks has not been determined.1 hour
65.Frank Gore too upset to talk after game (Rotoworld) Frank Gore told reporters he was too upset to talk following Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Analysis: Gore finished with 10 yards on six carries and got just one carry in the second half as the 49ers went pass-heavy. It's unclear if he was upset about his lack of usage or about the loss that sunk the 49ers to 1-2. Either way, the meager carries were a result of not wanting to challenge the Cardinals' stout run defense. Expect Gore to be back around 11-15 touches against the Eagles in Week 4.1 hour
66.OLB Jarvis Jones needs wrist surgery (Rotoworld) Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones needs wrist surgery and is out indefinitely. Analysis: Jones' rocky start to his NFL career continues. In 17 games since the Steelers took him 17th overall, Jones has produced three sacks and two quarterback hits on 803 snaps. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Arthur Moats.2 hours
67.Raiders | Rod Streater injured (KFFL) Oakland Raiders WR Rod Streater (foot) suffered a fractured foot during his team's 16-9 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday, Sept. 21. Streater was wearing a walking boot and was on crutches following the game.2 hours
68.ILB Ryan Shazier diagnosed with sprained... (Rotoworld) Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL. Analysis: Shazier is undergoing an MRI Monday to determine how long he'll be out. It's a major blow to an already shaky Steelers defense, as the No. 15 overall pick gave this unit the sideline-to-sideline speed it desperately needs. Now they'll move forward without RCB Ike Taylor (arm), OLB Jarvis Jones (wrist) and Shazier. William Gay, Arthur Moats and Sean Spence are the respective backups.2 hours
69.Cowboys | Henry Melton injured (KFFL) Dallas Cowboys DT Henry Melton (groin) suffered a groin injury in his team's win over the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Sept. 21. Melton played through the injury and finished with one tackle and a fumble recovery, and the team will monitor his health in the next few days.2 hours
70.Chargers | Branden Oliver may see more time (KFFL) With injuries to both RB Ryan Mathews (knee) and Danny Woodhead (ankle/leg), RB Branden Oliver could see more playing time going forward with the San Diego Chargers.2 hours
71.Ravens | Deonte Thompson could return (KFFL) The Baltimore Ravens waived WR Deonte Thompson on Saturday, Sept. 20 in order to promote RB Fitzgerald Toussaint from the practice squad, but Thompson could stick with the team after all. The club would like to bring him back as long as he clears waivers.2 hours
72.Travis Kelce up to 42 snaps in Week 2 (Rotoworld) Travis Kelce played on 47-of-72 snaps (65.2 percent) in Sunday's win at Miami. Analysis: It's up from 19 Week 1 snaps for Kelce and 32 snaps in Week 2. It shows that the Chiefs are seeing the truly special abilities their second-year tight end has, even if he was only targeted four times against the Dolphins. With his role increasing heading into a Week 4 Monday Night home game against the Patriots, Kelce is bordering on TE1 status. He's turned 15 targets into a 10-166-1 line this season.2 hours
73.Boykin, Davante Adams share snaps once a... (Rotoworld) Jarrett Boykin dropped two more catchable balls in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Analysis: A red-zone drop in Week 2 is what got Davante Adams going initially and Boykin continued to struggle Sunday. Per the Green Bay Press-Gazette, "Aaron Rodgers' confidence in him as the No. 3 receiver has to be eroding." Note that Boykin played on 36-of-54 snaps against the Lions, while Adams was in on 35 snaps. We'd expect the more talented Adams to eventually emerge from this rotation, making him the one to stash where possible.2 hours
74.Nate Freese misses yet another FG (Rotoworld) Nate Freese missed his fourth field goal of the season in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Packers. Analysis: This one was a 41-yarder in the friendly kicking confines of Ford Field. Freese, who went 20-of-20 at Boston College last season, is now 3-of-7 through three NFL games. It's time for the Lions to cut losses on their seventh-round pick.3 hours
75.Allen Robinson's snaps continue to rise (Rotoworld) Allen Robinson played on 42-of-60 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Analysis: Robinson played 20 snaps in Week 1, 30 in Week 2 and is now up to very usable levels at 70.0 percent of the snaps. The second-round rookie is also playing well, racking up 11 catches for 154 yards on his last 16 targets. With Blake Bortles taking over, Marqise Lee sidelined and Robinson closing on Allen Hurns (52 snaps Sunday), there's plenty of room for a waiver add here.3 hours
76.Eddie Lacy, GB run game is at a loss (Rotoworld) Eddie Lacy said the Packers have to figure out better ways to run the ball. Analysis: "I don't know if I have to be more patient or speed things up but one way or another I'm responsible for the run game," Lacy said after rushing 11 times for 36 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Perhaps it's just a case of playing three of the league's best run defenses in a row to start the season: Seahawks, Jets, Lions. We wouldn't be selling Lacy low with cupcake matchups against the Bears and Vikings on deck.3 hours
77.Ben Watson suffers undisclosed injury (Rotoworld) Saints TE Ben Watson left Sunday's Week 3 win over the Vikings with an undisclosed injury. Analysis: It's a chance for second-year man Josh Hill to step in as the No. 2 tight end. Hill had a career-high 48 yards and scored his second career touchdown Sunday.3 hours
78.Lance Moore plays one snap in debut (Rotoworld) Lance Moore played one snap in Sunday night's Week 3 win at Carolina. Analysis: Moore missed the first two games due to a groin injury, so perhaps the Steelers were just easing him back in. Or maybe he's lost No. 3 duties to Justin Brown. Either way, no one can complain as the Steelers hung 37 points on one of the best defenses in the NFL.3 hours
79.Stewart's injury not believed to be seri... (Rotoworld) The right knee injury Jonathan Stewart sustained Sunday night is not believed to be serious. Analysis: Stewart avoided any tears, but the fact that he was unable to return to the game means he's in doubt for Week 4. It's a shame, because the oft-injured former first-round pick was running well with eight touches for 51 yards before leaving.
