  • Kyle Rudolph goes 7/70/1 vs. Panthers
    Kyle Rudolph caught 7-of-10 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: Rudolph was the Vikings' most-targeted pass catcher, and caught their lone touchdown. Rudolph could have had a second score, but committed the rare combo drop/offensive pass interference. A must bigger part of Minnesota's offense this year, Rudolph has 14/166/2 through three games. He's on the TE1 radar in an extremely down year for the position. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • Pitta tallies 42 yards on six catches in Week 3
    Dennis Pitta turned eight targets into six catches for 42 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: Pitta got off to a hot start with six catches in the first half but couldn’t haul in either of his second-half targets. He’s settled in nicely as Joe Flacco’s primary check-down man with 20 targets over the last two weeks. The 31-year-old hasn’t scored a touchdown yet but fantasy owners have to be pleased with his involvement so far. Pencil him in as an upside TE2 next time out against Oakland.

  • Matt Asiata touches the ball seven times
    Matt Asiata rushed six times for 15 yards in the Vikings' Week 3 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: He added a four-yard reception. Asiata "started," but got out-touched 17-7 by Jerick McKinnon and soundly out-snapped. He's the clear No. 2 in Minnesota's backfield, albeit still likely to vulture touchdowns. Running behind an extremely weak offensive line, it's hard to see Asiata becoming a weekly RB3 factor.

  • Seth Roberts catches Carr's lone TD in win
    Seth Roberts caught 2-of-6 targets for 27 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 3 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Roberts' day started with a terrible drop on the opening series, but he later busted past slot CB Brice McCain for a short touchdown, which proved to be the game-winner. Roberts won't come into fantasy value unless one of Amari Cooper of Michael Crabtree gets hurt at some point. He's a WR6. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago

  • Terrelle Pryor has huge game in loss to Miami
    Terrelle Pryor caught 8-of-14 targets for 144 yards in Cleveland's Week 3 loss to Miami.

    Advice: Pryor had a featured role with Josh McCown and Corey Coleman sidelined. He rotated snaps with Cody Kessler at quarterback, rushing for 21 yards on four carries and completing 3-of-5 passes for 35 yards. The stat line is impressive, but not something owners can expect going forward. Pryor should remain the focal point of Cleveland's offense until Josh Gordon returns in Week 5.

  • Shane Vereen totals 95 yards vs. Redskins
    Shane Vereen rushed 11 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Redskins, adding two catches for 28 additional yards.

    Advice: Vereen fumbled twice, losing one. The second was narrowly overturned on review. Vereen also lost a fumble in Week 2. That would have had him banished under former coach Tom Coughlin. As it is, Vereen stayed in the game, but was rotating pretty much evenly with Orleans Darkwa even before he put the ball on the ground. Bobby Rainey was also a surprisingly big part of the offense with Rashad Jennings sidelined. Still part of a committee, Vereen will be more of an RB3 in Week 4 against the Vikings even if Jennings remains out. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:27 pm

    Tyrod Taylor completed 14-of-25 passes for 119 yards and an interception in the Bills' Week 3 win over the Cardinals, adding nine rushes for 76 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: The Sammy Watkins-less Bills predictably got nothing going in the air against Patrick Peterson's Cardinals, but there were huge gaps available for LeSean McCoy and Taylor to run through. Taylor was un-touched on his scoring run and also broke off a 49-yarder on the ground. Taylor will continue to be a volatile QB1 streamer when the Bills face the Patriots in Week 4. Taylor had one big fantasy day and one big clunker when Buffalo played New England last year. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:21 pm

  • Crowell runs for 79 yards on Miami
    Isaiah Crowell had 15 carries for 79 yards in Week 3 against Miami.

    Advice: Crowell was mostly held in check outside of a 25-yard run. He lost 10 carries to Duke Johnson, who was more effective on fewer touches. Crowell has a solid floor in Hue Jackson's run scheme in the few games where Cleveland isn't playing from behind, but is due for some regression. He remains a prime sell high candidate.

  • Julius Thomas (2-13-0) quiet in loss to Ravens
    Julius Thomas hauled in two-of-five targets for 13 yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: After flexing his muscles with 135 yards over his first two contests, Thomas was rarely seen or heard from in Week 2. Four of his five targets came after halftime as the Jaguars worked to chip away at a 16-7 third-quarter deficit. He saw fewer targets than Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. Thomas is still a big red zone presence and will have some decent weeks, but fantasy owners need to be prepared for a few duds along the way. This was one of them. Thomas will be a mid-range TE1 next week when the Jags face the Colts in London. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:06 pm

  • Ivory limited to 23 yards in Jaguars debut
    Chris Ivory tallied 14 yards on 12 carries and secured his only target for nine yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Ivory was absent for the Jaguars’ opening drive but resurfaced on the following possession. The good news is that Ivory out-touched T.J. Yeldon by a comfortable 13-8 margin. The bad news is that he was horribly inefficient and the Jaguars’ offensive line did almost nothing to protect him, standing idly by while Ivory and Yeldon spent the afternoon running into brick walls. Jacksonville’s running game has been stagnant all season and that probably won’t change even with Ivory back in the lineup. Ivory will be a touchdown-or-bust RB3 next week when the Jags travel to London to face the Colts. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:01 pm

  • Allen Hurns limited to 40 yards in Week 3
    Allen Hurns secured four-of-eight targets for 40 yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Hurns didn’t see his first target until the second quarter as the Jaguars’ passing game took a while to get going. He came close to reeling in a long completion that would have set Jacksonville up with a first-and-goal but Eric Weddle swatted it away at the last second. Hurns is still seeing a steady diet of targets but it’s a little bit of a red flag that he hasn’t scored yet this year. He’ll look to end his touchdown drought next week against the Colts.

  • Tannehill throws 3 TDs in OT win over Browns
    Ryan Tannehill completed 25-of-39 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in Miami's Week 3 overtime win over the Browns.

    Advice: Tanehill didn't play to his stat line, throwing an interception on the opening drive and a pick-six later in the first half. He also took eight sacks and lost a fumble at the end of the fourth quarter, but the Browns missed the game-winning field goal. Tannehill shredded a Joe Haden-less secondary when he had time, getting all of Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills involved. Despite five touchdowns over his last two games, Tannehill is just a QB2 for Week 4 against the Bengals. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:54 pm

  • Dalton struggles against Broncos defense
    Andy Dalton completed 21-of-31 passes for 206 yards and one interception in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: He saved his fantasy day from being a true clunker with 40 rushing yards on six scrambles. Dalton took four sacks against a swarming Denver defense and has managed just two touchdown passes through the Bengals' first three games. The lack of weapons behind A.J. Green in Cincinnati are a big concern for Dalton's fantasy outlook. He'll still be worth streamer consideration when the Bengals host a weak Dolphins pass defense on Thursday night in Week 4.

    Cam Newton completed 21-of-35 passes for 262 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions in Carolina's 22-10, Week 3 loss to the Vikings, adding 7/26/1 as a rusher.

    Advice: Newton got beaten to a pulp by Minnesota's swarming defense, taking eight sacks and tweaking his ankle. Time and again, the Vikings' pass rush was in Newton's face before he had time to so much as blink. On one of the only throws where Newton had time, he took a coverage sack in the end zone, resulting in a safety. His first quarter rushing score on a leisurely play fake was his only saving grace. Newton will have a much better day in Week 4 against the Falcons' shaky defense. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:45 pm

    Advice: Green's lowlight was a third-down drop late in the game that would have given the Bengals a fighting chance, before Demaryius Thomas' game-sealing 55-yard touchdown bomb. Still, PPR owners should be happy Green was able to emerge from this game with 15.7 fantasy points against the Broncos' elite defense.

  • Emmanuel Sanders soars with 9-117-2 effort
    Emmanuel Sanders caught 9-of-13 targets for 117 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

    Advice: This wasn't a great-looking spot for Sanders coming in on paper, but he was simply un-cover-able in this game, and got fed as the squeaky wheel after expressing "frustration" with his role in the first two weeks. Sanders' 13 targets bested Demaryius Thomas' 7, and the Broncos' theoretical No. 2 wideout was no match for Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick. Sanders gets a more favorable Week 4 matchup at Tampa Bay, where he'll be an upside WR2/3 play. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:20 pm

    Randall Cobb caught 1-of-3 targets for 33 yards Week 3 against the Lions.

He started on the right foot with a 33-yard grab on a broken play on the opening drive, but he only saw two targets the rest of the way. Cobb will certainly have bigger days moving forward, but he has not had more than 60 yards through the air since Week 13 of last year. He will be no better than a WR3 coming out of the Week 4 bye.

    DeMarco Murray rushed 16 times for 114 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' 17-10, Week 3 loss to the Raiders, adding five catches for 41 yards.

    Advice: Murray was the only source of offense for the Titans on Sunday. He had a long run of 36 yards and was consistently breaking off chunk gains as both a runner and receiver. On his touchdown run, Murray was supposed to run between the tackles, but saw nothing there and bounced it outside to get to the right pylon. He produced the Titans' first 100-yard rushing game since Chris Johnson in 2013. Murray has been the Titans' lead back and has caught at least five passes in all three games. He's a locked-in RB1 heading into Week 4 at the Texans. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:07 pm

However, Vereen is one of only three Giants backs to receive carries this year (the others are Jennings and Orleans Darkwa) and should be close to an every-down player on Sunday.

Those numbers do not tell the whole story, however. Crowell earned 40 yards on three meaningless draws at the end of a loss Week 1, and he had an 85-yard touchdown last week.

"You might not have the same numbers for [Julio Jones] and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense."

Having the extra day this week has been a real plus for him, no doubt about it." Jones' injury isn't believed to be serious despite Thursday's missed practice. Owners can keep him locked in as an elite WR1 for a mouthwatering matchup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:48 pm

  • Emmanuel Sanders frustrated with early role
    Emmanuel Sanders said there is "some frustration" with his early-season role.

    Advice: Sanders has just 88 yards and zero touchdowns through two weeks. "I can sit up here and make it all about me and Demaryius [Thomas], how we're used to having 100-yard games, we're used to scoring touchdowns and we're used to doing this. But we're sitting here 2-0," Sanders said. "I'm waiting for that big game, Demaryius is waiting for that big game -- we know it’s going to come." With Gary Kubiak taking full control of the offense, the Broncos have run more (60 attempts) than they have thrown (59) this season. Both Sanders and Thomas will have big games, but that kind of split will hurt their week-to-week consistency. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:28 am

Yeldon didn't do much in Ivory's absence, turning 28 carries into 67 yards (2.8 YPC) and one touchdown, while also catching 12 passes for 40 yards (3.3 YPR).

    Emmanuel Sanders corralled three-of-eight targets for 39 yards Sunday in the Broncos' Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: Sanders had a busy first half with six targets but was held without a catch after halftime. Part of that was because Indianapolis dominated time of possession, though Sanders' lack of chemistry with Trevor Siemian is a growing concern. With Denver taking a more run-oriented approach this year, Sanders will probably max out as a mid-range WR3. He gets the Bengals in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 6:02 pm

    Raiders WR Seth Roberts caught 3-of-6 targets for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: He did have an end-zone target, but it fell incomplete. Roberts is very active in the red zone, but his overall usage is limited on a team that frequently uses two-tight end formations. The Raiders' slot receiver, Roberts would need an Amari Cooper or Michael Crabtree injury to become a legitimate re-draft option. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:50 pm

    Julius Thomas caught 4-of-7 targets for 71 yards Week 2 against the Chargers.

    Advice: With San Diego locking down the boundaries, Thomas was the only real weapon early in the game. He had 54 of Blake Bortles' 128 yards at the half, and he was the only weapon creating plays early. Coming off something of a lost season, Thomas now has nine catches for 135 yards and a score through two weeks. He is shaping up as a solid TE1. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:30 pm

  • Broncos terrorize Andrew Luck in Week 2
    Andrew Luck completed 21-of-40 passes for 197 yards with one touchdown, one interception and one lost fumble and also rushed three times for 21 yards Sunday in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: He was sacked five times for a loss of 27 yards. Luck endured a nightmare first half, completing just 5-of-15 passes for 53 yards. He was getting ambushed from all angles with DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller sinking their teeth into the Colts’ porous offensive line. Luck got a slight reprieve when Ware went out with a broken arm and eventually led a 79-yard touchdown march in the third quarter. Luck’s rollercoaster day continued with a fourth-quarter pick-six followed by a seven-yard touchdown strike to Frank Gore. Miller’s forced fumble with 1:42 remaining was the final nail in Indy’s coffin. The deck was stacked against Luck as soon as Donte Moncrief left the game with a head injury in the first half. Luck will hope for a bounceback game against the Chargers in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 5:12 pm

    Terrelle Pryor caught just 3-of-10 targets for 32 yards in the Browns' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: His 10 targets were two more than Corey Coleman for the team lead, but Coleman vastly out-produced him with a 5-104-2 line. Pryor had a late fourth-quarter catch called back after he was whistled for a taunting penalty. The Browns were set up at the Ravens' 10-yard line with 21 seconds left on the clock, trailing by five. After the penalty, McCown threw a lame-duck interception on the next play. Pryor remains a work-in-progress WR4 next week at Miami. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:43 pm

    Advice: Pitta's dozen targets were easily a team-high, doubling up Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace, who each had six. After playing 56-of-72 snaps last week, Pitta was in on 46-of-75 plays this Sunday and has clearly worked his way back as the Ravens' No. 1 tight end. Pitta was running free over the middle on numerous occasions against the Browns and will be on the streaming map next week at the Jaguars. Pitta and Joe Flacco have long had a strong rapport.

    Andy Dalton was reportedly "hobbling pretty badly" following the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Dalton appeared to suffer an ankle injury in the second half, but he played through the issue. He might be limited in practice, but there is no reason to be worried about his Week 3 status right now. Dalton completed 31-of-54 passes for 366 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers, but the line looks much better than the performance. He was victimized by some drops, but he floated what should have been a touchdown to C.J. Uzomah and then missed the open tight end on the next play on a crucial late drive. Things will not get any easier with the Broncos next up on the schedule, especially if he is dealing with an ankle injury. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:22 pm

Green did draw a long defensive pass interference in the third quarter, but he was a non-factor otherwise.

    Cam Newton completed 24-of-40 passes for 353 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception in Carolina's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

    Advice: Newton started off slow, throwing an interception on the opening drive. He lost a fumble and was checked for a minor hand injury, but didn’t miss any time. Newton connected with Kelvin Benjamin on two of his scores, and had deep TDs to Greg Olsen and Devin Funchess. He wasn't a huge factor in the run game, adding 37 yards on six carries. Newton passed Jake Delhomme as Carolina's all-time leader in pass touchdowns. Even in a tough matchup, Newton is a top-five quarterback play against Minnesota in Week 3. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:55 pm

    Isaiah Crowell rushed for 133 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in the Browns' 25-20, Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

    Advice: Crowell kicked off the Browns' second possession with an 85-yard touchdown run. He ran untouched right through the left side of the line and up the middle of the field into the end zone. On his other 17 carries, Crowell managed 48 yards (2.82 YPC). He also caught his lone target for 15 yards. After Josh McCown injured his left shoulder late in the first quarter, the Browns didn't hide the fact they were going to try and run the ball with Crowell. It rarely worked, and the Browns blew a 20-point lead. Crowell will be an RB2 next week at the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:43 pm

    Shane Vereen delivered 42 yards on 14 carries while snagging all three of his targets for 24 receiving yards Sunday in the Giants' Week 2 win over the Saints.

    Advice: He committed the first of three Giants turnovers by coughing it up early in the second quarter. Despite the early miscue, Vereen went on to out-touch Rashad Jennings 17-15. Vereen even saw some red zone work in the second half but was stuffed for no gain on both of his goal-line totes. The 14 carries Vereen logged were more than he had in any game last season. In terms of his usage, we’d expect a regression to the mean next week against the Redskins. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:41 pm

    Ryan Tannehill completed 32-of-45 passes for 389 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Miami's 31-24, Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: He added six carries for 35 additional yards. 20 minutes into the game, Tannehill was 1-for-4 for four yards. At one point in the second half, he was 20-for-21, with the incompletion being a throwaway. We got the full Tannehill experience, including piling up yardage after the opposing team eased off the throttle. The Pats entered halftime up 24-3, and understandably laid back a bit after the break. Odd game flow or not, Tannehill worked his connection with Jarvis Landry to perfection, and seemed on the same page with sophomore playmaker DeVante Parker. Tannehill will be a top-15 Week 3 play against the Browns' barely-there defense. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:35 pm

  • DeMarco Murray has big game against Detroit
    DeMarco Murray rushed 12 times for 89 yards and caught 7-of-7 targets for 56 yards in the Titans' Week 2 win over the Lions.

    Advice: Murray's rushing day was salvaged by a 67-yard sprint after he began the day with negative one yard on his first six rushing attempts. He continues to be heavily involved in the passing game and now has 12 receptions through two games. Murray lost 10 touches to Derrick Henry, but remained the Titans' clear lead back and is the obvious go-to option in passing situations.

    Browns coach Hue Jackson indicated Friday he is intent on feeding Isaiah Crowell in Week 2 against the Ravens.

    Advice: It sounds like the Browns want to attack Baltimore with a ground-and-pound approach. "We just have to hand it to him enough times," Jackson said. "If you have a runner you believe in, you have to give him the ball. He has to get a feel for the game and be able to play within the structure of what you are trying to accomplish with the offensive line. That’s why I said I take responsibility for that. I think (Crowell) is off to a good start. We just have to give him opportunities to go show his ability." Crowell posted a 12-62-1 rushing line in Week 1 against the Eagles, but got 40 of the yards on the game's final three plays. He'll be a low-end flex option for Week 2. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 3:51 pm

    Advice: One of Clay's missed connections was a brutal drop. Clay didn't make an impact on the game, a theme for him in Buffalo. When Clay isn't catching five passes for minimal yardage, he's catching 2-3 for even less. He's a last-gasp TE2 in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 9:12 pm

We got a little bit of everything from Taylor this evening, including but not limited to two massive deep-bomb touchdowns, a badly-underthrown interception and a concussion evaluation. The bombs were to Marquise Goodwin and Greg Salas. The pick, Sammy Watkins, whom Taylor found just twice for 20 yards. The monster night on the heels of Taylor's dismal Sunday is a reminder of his volatility, but also monstrous upside. Taylor will remain decidedly boom-or-bust for Week 3 against Arizona.

  • Chris Ivory: 'No more issues'
    Chris Ivory (illness) said there are "no more issues," and "now it's just day to day."

    Advice: "I’m ready to go," Ivory said Thursday. "Did a little cardio today." Ivory is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, but should be ready to rock for Week 3. T.J. Yeldon, who was ineffective in Week 1, will get another start in Ivory's absence. Denard Robinson is handling No. 2 duties. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 3:06 pm

  • Andrew Luck (shoulder) limited on Thursday
    Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited at Thursday's practice.

    Advice: The Colts are just managing his reps. He'll be fine for Sunday's tilt with Denver. It's a tough matchup but Luck is still in play as a QB1 coming off an excellent showing against the Lions in Week 1. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 1:37 pm
