  • Brian Hoyer efficient despite loss to Ravens
    Brian Hoyer completed 19-of-25 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 3 loss to Baltimore.

    Advice: He added four yards on two scrambles. Continuing to operate as a game manager in Cleveland's run-based offense, Hoyer was incredibly sharp against the Ravens and is in no danger of losing his starting job to Johnny Manziel entering a Week 4 bye. Hoyer has as a 3:0 TD-to-INT ratio through three starts. He has taken only five sacks and is completing well over 60 percent of his passes. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Foles shows toughness, beats Redskins
    Nick Foles completed 28-of-42 passes for 325 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: Foles took some really big hits in this one, including a cheap shot from Redskins DT Chris Baker following what was initially ruled an interception. The hit incited a brawl. But Foles showed his toughness, playing his best game of the season in terms of both reads and accuracy. He now has a streak of three straight 300-yard games riding into a Week 4 matchup at San Francisco. This Chip Kelly scheme will keep Foles locked as a strong QB1 all year. Rotoworld.com

  • Fitzpatrick tosses 3 INTs in loss to Giants
    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-34 passes for 289 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Texans' Week 3 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Fitzpatrick added 34 yards and an additional touchdown on the ground. Overall, he was even worse than his stat line would suggest. One of his picks set the Giants up at the two-yard line with under two minutes to play where Rashad Jennings scored an easy one-yard TD. Fitzpatrick's third INT was thrown into coverage on third-and-19. When forced to try and win the game with his arm, Fitzpatrick usually goes up in flames. He's barely a QB2. The Texans host Fitzpatrick's old Bills teammates in Week 4. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Cousins rips Eagles for 427 yards, 3 TDs
    Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-48 passes for 427 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Philadelphia.

    Advice: Robert Griffin III may never get his job back. Cousins turned in one of the best performances by a quarterback all season, repeatedly throwing perfectly into tiny windows all over the field. He's clearly very comfortable in this Jay Gruden scheme that turned Andy Dalton into fantasy's No. 5 overall quarterback last season. Cousins has touch matchups coming up (vs. NYG, vs. SEA, at ARZ), but needs to be owned in all formats. If he holds off RG3 all year, note that the Redskins host this rancid Eagles pass defense in Week 16 -- also known as fantasy Super Bowl week. Rotoworld.com

  • Andy Dalton catches TD in win over Titans
    Andy Dalton completed 15-of-23 passes for 169 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception in the Bengals' Week 3 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Dalton also caught an 18-yard touchdown from Mohamed Sanu. Sanu flipped it to Sanu, who ran right and threw all the way back to his left to Dalton, who out-leaped a caught-in-between Blidi Wreh-Wilson at the line of scrimmage. Wreh-Wilson fell down, and Dalton out-raced everyone else 18 yards to the end zone. It was the first touchdown catch by a quarterback since Tyler Thigpen in 2008. Dalton didn't really have to do much besides hand the ball off to his running backs. OC Hue Jackson's offense has been perfect. The Bengals enter their bye week 3-0 before going to New England in Week 5. Rotoworld.com

    Derek Carr completed 21-of-34 passes for 174 yards and an interception in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: Carr was better than his stat-line indicates. He made some of his best throws in this game, and nearly led the Raiders to a game-tying touchdown at the end of the fourth quarter. The interception came on a dropped pass by Denarius Moore and wasn't his fault. Carr showed good velocity on his throws, and didn't take any sacks. He'll remain a back-end QB2 in Week 4.

    Taking over for an injured Matt Cassel (broken foot), Teddy Bridgewater completed 12-of-20 passes for 150 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Vikings' 20-9, Week 3 loss to the Saints.

    Advice: He added six rushes for 27 yards. With Cassel dealing with "several fractured bones," it will be Bridgewater under center for the foreseeable future in Minnesota. Operating behind an ineffective offensive line, Bridgewater extended plays with elusiveness, and was more effective than Cassel has been the past two weeks. He showed good awareness, and had nice touch on his passes. We like his odds of getting the Vikings' Adrian Peterson-less offense moving more than Cassel. Bridgewater's first start will come at home against the Falcons next Sunday. It's a winnable game, but Bridgewater isn't yet on the QB2 radar. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: We don't have a timetable yet, but players can't gut it out through broken bones in their feet. This is rookie Teddy Bridgewater's team now, a good thing for the entire Vikings offense. Bridgewater went 12-of-20 for 150 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and also rushed six times for 27 yards in relief Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Aaron Rodgers completed 16-of-27 passes for 162 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions in the Packers' 19-7, Week 3 loss to the Lions.

    Advice: Stunningly, Rodgers had zero competitions of 20 yards or longer. The Lions put the lid on the Packers' big-play offense from the opening whistle, making life extra hard on Rodgers by completely erasing the Pack's ground game. There just wasn't much time for Rodgers to make plays, or windows for him to complete passes when he got outside the pocket. The Pack have looked extremely shaky through the season's first three games, but there's still no reason to worry about Rodgers. He should bounce back in next week's trip to Soldier Field.

    Jake Locker completed just 17-of-34 passes for 185 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Titans' Week 3, 33-7 blowout loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: After a strong Week 1 against the Chiefs, Locker has followed it up with two duds. He's tossed one touchdown to four picks the past two games. Locker at least saved his fantasy day a bit with 50 rush yards. As a passer, he missed too many throws, often overshooting his receivers. Locker could have easily thrown another interception or two. Locker and the Titans travel to Indianapolis in Week 4. It's a favorable matchup, but Locker is an untrustworthy QB2. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He added six yards on four carries, but was stuffed on a goal-line sneak. Flacco's fourth-quarter 32-yard strike to Steve Smith Sr. was the big play in this game, setting up Justin Tucker's game-winning field goal. Through three games, Flacco has a TD-to-INT ratio of 4-2.

    Matthew Stafford completed 22-of-34 passes for 246 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in the Lions' 19-7, Week 3 win over the Packers, also losing a fumble.

    Advice: The Lions winning a game where Stafford commits three turnovers is a bit like a total solar eclipse. Aaron Rodgers wasn't any better for the Packers, however, while Stafford kept the chains moving in a low-scoring game. All three of Stafford's turnovers were regrettable, and his mechanics weren't exactly in tip-top shape.

    Advice: He added 15 rushing yards on three scrambles. Through three games, Luck's TD-to-INT ratio stands at 9:3. He was surgical against the defense-less Jaguars, who sacked Luck twice but otherwise generated very little pressure as Luck spread the ball around to nine different pass catchers. Luck should have had a fifth touchdown, but Coby Fleener dropped the would-be score. Expect Luck to stay hot when the Colts host the crumbling Titans in Week 4. Rotoworld.com

He spent some time on the trainer's table before being carted to the locker room. He underwent X-rays, and was officially ruled out about 20 minutes later.

    Nick Foles completed 21-of-37 passes for 331 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Eagles' Monday night, Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: The stat line is deceiving. Foles couldn't complete anything downfield outside of a couple shots to Zach Ertz. Instead, he simply dumped balls off to Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy and let them do all the dirty work. Foles just isn't seeing the field like he did in 2013. He'd be a bigger story if the Eagles hadn't been able to overcome 14-point halftime deficits in back-to-back weeks. He missed a wide-open Jeremy Maclin in the end zone Monday, and threw another pass well behind Ertz. Foles will remain on the QB1 map next week vs. Washington. Rotoworld.com

    Andrew Luck completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Colts' 30-27, Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

    Advice: Luck saved his night with the three touchdowns, but he could have easily tossed three or four more interceptions. And the interception he did throw shouldn't have been one, as T.Y. Hilton was completely mugged on the play. The 5.1 YPA average is nearly two yards off his career mark. OC Pep Hamilton continues to be the problem in Indy. He consistently dialed up runs to Trent Richardson, who was having an okay night, but not a good enough one to warrant 22 touches. When Luck was asked to throw, it was short passes. The Colts travel to Jacksonville in Week 3. Luck is an obvious QB1 in a favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com

  • Jay Gruden noncommittal on RG3's starting job
    Coach Jay Gruden was noncommittal Monday when asked if Robert Griffin III (dislocated ankle) would get his starting job back when healthy.

    Advice: Reports Monday morning surfaced in D.C. stating that Gruden believed Kirk Cousins was a better fit for his offense than RG3. Gruden's refusal to anoint Griffin his starter when healthy adds fuel to that fire. "We'll cross that bridge when it comes," Gruden said. If Cousins plays well in the Andy Dalton role during RG3's 6-8 week absence, it's possible he'll remain the late-season starter. Griffin could then be placed on the offseason trade block.

    Advice: "We'll know in a few more weeks to know how long he'll be out," coach Jay Gruden said Monday.

"We'll cross that bridge when it comes," Gruden said of Griffin and Kirk Cousins. Although it's entirely possible Cousins face-plants during Griffin's absence, RGIII is droppable in 10-12 team fantasy leagues. He appears likely to miss at least six weeks. Rotoworld.com

    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Robert Griffin III's ankle dislocation could still shelve him 6-8 weeks despite the fact that Monday's MRI revealed no fracture.

    Advice: Initial reports had the timetable at 4-5 weeks. Griffin's absence will simply depend on how quickly he recovers. Whether he regains his starting job upon return is entirely unclear, as well. Fantasy owners can freely drop Griffin in 10- and 12-team leagues. He was playing poorly before the injury, and is now in danger of losing the first-team quarterback job outright to Kirk Cousins. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: According to reporter Ryan O'Halloran, however, Bradley "took 30 seconds" to answer the question at Monday's press conference. Henne took ten sacks in Sunday's loss to Washington and was victimized on several drops, including on a would-be 80-yard touchdown bomb to UDFA receiver Allen Hurns. Still, signs point to the Jaguars beginning to waffle on their pre-season pledge to keep rookie Blake Bortles plastered to the bench.

It's fantastic news for his outlook, as there seems to be a real chance now that he can return in 4-5 weeks.

    Advice: As expected, the Packers went after the Jets' shaky secondary instead of their beastly front seven.

    Advice: That's a pitiful 5.1 YPA average. Hoyer didn't do anything to help the Browns win this one; the Cleveland defense and running game earned coach Mike Pettine his first win. Hoyer missed badly on literally all of his throws down field, and has zero arm strength on passes outside the numbers. In Hoyer's defense, he didn't have much to work with with Jordan Cameron (shoulder) out.

    Advice: Cassel started the game 4-for-4 with a touchdown, but imploded after the first drive, leading to chants of "Teddy" after the third interception. All of the interceptions were poor decisions by Cassel, but he was partly forced into those decisions because of the Vikings complete inability to run the football.

He was far-more assertive in the second half, but it was already too late for a Titans team that couldn't stop the run. Locker's first pick was a first-half air-ball to no one, while the second was a tipped pass Rolando McClain corralled with a circus catch. The start wasn't as bad as some of Locker's past disasters, but a major disappointment after his crisp Week 1. Bouncing back in Week 3 will be a tall task as the Titans travel to Cincinnati.

  • Kirk Cousins, Niles Paul dominate w/ RG3 out
    Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-33 passes for 250 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 2 blowout of the Jaguars.

    Advice: Robert Griffin suffered a potentially serious ankle injury on the second series of the game, bringing Cousins on in relief. The third-year man immediately shredded, completing his first 14 passes while showing total command of the Jay Gruden scheme from the pocket. He did it without DeSean Jackson (shoulder) and Jordan Reed (hamstring), but with Niles Paul (8-99-1). It's a lot like what we saw in the preseason when Cousins thoroughly outplayed RG3. Cousins will be a fine QB2 play against the Eagles in Week 3 if Griffin remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com

  • Redskins fear dislocated ankle for Griffin
    The Redskins fear that Robert Griffin III suffered a dislocated left ankle in Sunday's Week 2 game against the Jaguars.

    Advice: It would be a potentially season-ending injury. RG3, who suffered the injury on a non-contact play near the sideline in the first quarter, will have further tests to confirm. Kirk Cousins has come on and shined in relief as the Redskins are battering the Jags. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Griffin injured on non-contact play
    Robert Griffin III left Sunday's game against the Jaguars in the first quarter with a left ankle injury and will not return.

    Advice: This one did not look good. Griffin was scrambling toward the sideline when he went down like a ton of bricks without getting touched by a defender. He was in a ton of pain and stayed down on sideline for a long time while being examined by Dr. James Andrews. Kirk Cousins came on and promptly through a 20-yard touchdown on his first attempt. The only sliver of good news is that the injury is not to the right ACL he tore in January of 2013. Rotoworld.com

  • Blake Bortles continues to make strides
    Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he continues to see "positive signs" from Blake Bortles in practice.

    Advice: Bortles has been working exclusively with the scout team, but has impressed with his footwork and ability to make all the throws in practice. He's carried over his strong training camp into the season. The Jags still plan to move Bortles along slowly, but he's going to eventually force his way into starts. Chad Henne held back the offense in the second half of Sunday's loss, and won't have a long leash if he continues to struggle. Rotoworld.com

  • Brian Hoyer relying on check downs
    Brian Hoyer picked up 208-of-230 passing yards throwing into the middle of the field in Week 1 against the Steelers.

    Advice: Hoyer threw one pass to the right side of the field. He also attempted only three passes over 20 yards. It confirms he's checking down, as opposed to looking downfield. With Jordan Cameron (shoulder) questionable, slot WR Andrew Hawkins should see an increase in targets. Hoyer is a low-end QB2 despite a matchup with a Saints defense that gave up 448 yards to Matt Ryan last week. Rotoworld.com

  • Flacco notches 2 TDs in easy win over Pitt
    Joe Flacco completed 21-of-26 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Baltimore's 26-6, Week 2 thrashing of the Steelers.

    Advice: He also rushed five times for three yards, and took a huge shot on a failed quarterback sneak at the goal-line. Flacco didn't do anything fancy, instead relentlessly targeting Steve Smith and his tight ends on short-to-intermediate routes. He looked Smith's way a whopping 10 times compared to only three for Torrey Smith. Flacco will remain a low-end QB2 for Baltimore's Week 3 trip to Cleveland. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Locker pocket presence growing
    Jake Locker said he now sees where pressure if coming from more often.

    Advice: Locker was uncomfortable and skittish in the pocket through his first two NFL seasons, exacerbating his accuracy woes. Now in his fourth season, he's calmed down significantly. Over his last seven games, he's completed 61.5 percent of his passes while throwing 10 touchdowns against four interceptions. "I understand where it's coming from and where your problems are," Locker said of blitzes. He gets Dallas at home on Sunday, the softest matchup he'll see all season. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Griffin III ran zero zone-reads
    The Redskins ran zero read-option plays in Week 1.

    Advice: The play that was a dominant staple of the Shanahan scheme is out. "If you're going to be a professional football quarterback, you're going to have to learn to be a pocket passer at some point in your career and he's learning," Jay Gruden said. Griffin went from wild and out of control in the preseason to timid and conservative in Week 1. He'll have a good chance to find a middle ground in Sunday's game against the Jaguars -- we're certainly not giving up on a freak talent like this. Rotoworld.com
