  • Travis Kelce up to 42 snaps in Week 2
    Travis Kelce played on 47-of-72 snaps (65.2 percent) in Sunday's win at Miami.

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Boykin, Davante Adams share snaps once again
    Jarrett Boykin dropped two more catchable balls in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com

    Nate Freese missed his fourth field goal of the season in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Packers.

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy, GB run game is at a loss
    Eddie Lacy said the Packers have to figure out better ways to run the ball.

    Advice: "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. Rotoworld.com

    Lance Moore played one snap in Sunday night's Week 3 win at Carolina.

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com

    The right knee injury Jonathan Stewart sustained Sunday night is not believed to be serious.

    Advice: 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. If DeAngelo Williams (thigh) can get right, he'll be a lock for double-digit touches at Baltimore next week. Mike Tolbert (leg) also left Sunday night's loss early. Rotoworld.com

Brown had a strong game offensively, but lost a fumble on a punt return in the fourth quarter that was recovered for a touchdown.

Benjamin just missed coming down with a 20-yard touchdown in the first half, or he would have had an even bigger game. He continues to impress with his ability to make catches in traffic and is already one of the best red-zone receivers. Benjamin now has 19 catches, 253 yards, and two touchdowns through three games.

    Advice: Blount took over for Le'Veon Bell late in the second half and had a 50-yard run in garbage time. He trucked Panthers FS Thomas DeCoud for an eight-yard touchdown. Blount also did one of his signature hurdles over CB Antoine Cason. The Steelers offensive line dominated the Panthers front-four, with Blount and Bell both rushing for over 100 yards.

He was held out of the end-zone for the second straight week, but continues to look like one of the league's most complete backs. Bell has 461 total yards heading into Week 4.

    Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 37-19 blowout of the Panthers.

    Advice: The Steelers didn't need their pass game with Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both rushing for over 100 yards, but Roethlisberger was able to connect with Antonio Brown for two third-quarter touchdowns. One of his touchdowns was a vintage Big Ben play where he pump faked the entire Panthers defense and made a cross-field throw to Brown. Roethlisberger should get more opportunities to throw in a matchup with the Bucs in Week 4, making him a low-end QB1. He's averaging 273 passing yards with a 3:2 TD:INT ratio through three games.

    Eddie Lacy was bottled up in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions, rushing 11 times for only 36 yards, also losing a fumble.

    Advice: He added one catch for nine yards, and was also stopped for a safety. The fumble was Lacy's first since last Week 1. Lacy looked a bit lethargic today, but a good run defense - Lacy has faced three of the league's best in the season's first three weeks - can do that. Things finally open up in Week 4, where the Pack travel to Chicago to take on the Bears' bottom-three run unit. The Bears will be playing on a short week. Lacy should finally start earning his RB1 money. Frustration is understandable, but trading Lacy now would be the ultimate sell low. There should be much better days ahead. Rotoworld.com

Kelce was targeted six times and caught three balls on third downs to move the chains. His big grab on 3rd-and-13 set up one of Knile Davis' two scores.

    Advice: "He's a guy that mentally we are going to put in certain situations and build a package around and give him 'X' amount of plays a game, and it's just through his growth and his maturity that, the more he can handle, the more obviously he'll step on the field," Pederson said. It's an extended way of saying that Kelce is a young player the Chiefs' staff doesn't quite fully trust yet. That could change very quickly though, as Alex Smith desperately needs a weapon of Kelce's caliber on the field more. He's a must-hold TE2 heading into Week 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Stewart likely to lead Carolina's committee
    Jonathan Stewart is expected to start Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Advice: DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is on the shaky side of a questionable tag. It makes Stewart a candidate for a big workload on paper, but we're not sure the Panthers see him in that light anymore. Coach Ron Rivera said that Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker would get carries if Williams does end up sitting. Against a very good Lions front seven, it's not a high-ceiling situation. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy listed probable for Week 2 vs. NYJ
    Eddie Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 2 against the Jets.

    Advice: Fire Lacy up for fantasy lineups. He has a tough test against the Jets' strong defensive front, but remains on the back end of the RB1 map. Lacy isn't an ideal FanDuel play in a game the Packers will likely attack the Jets through the air. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy going back to his old helmet style
    After wearing Riddell's new SpeedFlex concussion-resistent helmet Week 1 against the Seahawks and suffering a concussion, Eddie Lacy is going back to his rookie-year helmet.

    Advice: Lacy took a thundering helmet-to-helmet hit from headhunter Brandon Meriweather in Week 2 last season, sidelining Lacy with his first NFL concussion. He now believes the helmet wasn't the problem. This really has nothing to do with Lacy's performance. He's fully expected to start against the Jets on Sunday. Lacy is our No. 10 running back for Week 2 against a strong D-line. Rotoworld.com

  • LeGarrette Blount has three-carry night
    LeGarrette Blount rushed three times for eight yards in the Steelers' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Foolishly, Blount also drew one target in the passing game, but failed to make an easy catch. He was out-touched 16-3 by Le'Veon Bell, and has now been out-touched 43-7 on the season. There's not even a pseudo-committee in Pittsburgh, let alone an actual one. Blount will likely vulture a touchdown every 2-3 weeks, but there's no fantasy value here aside from handcuff status.

  • Antonio Brown has 7/90 night in loss
    Antonio Brown caught 7-of-12 targets for 90 yards in the Steelers' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: He also rushed twice for 10 yards. The beat goes on for Brown, who survived a concussion scare to get open seemingly at will. Brown now has 12 catches on 18 looks through the season's first two games, and has looked every bit the WR1 he was last season. He'll travel to Carolina in Week 3. Rotoworld.com
