Player Notes

  • 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 37 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 53 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 gets loose on the ground vs ARZ
    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

  • 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 beaten to a pulp by Vikes' defense
    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

  • A.J. Green manages 8-77 against Denver
    A.J. Green caught 8-of-11 targets for 77 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

    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. The Bengals' schedule loosens up considerably going forward as they take on the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:29 pm

  • Randall Cobb not invited to the party Week 3
    Randall Cobb caught 1-of-3 targets for 33 yards Week 3 against the Lions.

    Advice: While Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson got on track, Cobb did not get his invitation to the party. 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.

    FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Julio Jones (calf, questionable) was a full-go in Sunday's walkthrough.

    Advice: Coach Dan Quinn reportedly told Glazer the Falcons expect Jones to play Monday night against the Saints, but they will test him again before the game. All signs have pointed to Jones being active this week, and this news just solidifies his status. He is an elite WR1. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:54 am

    Damien Williams is active for Week 3 against the Browns.

    Advice: There was speculation Williams could be a healthy scratch, but Miami has all four of their running backs active. Kenyan Drake is starting in place of Arian Foster and is the safest bet for touches. Also out for Miami are WR Justin Hunter, CB Jordan Lucas, LB Spencer Paysinger, C Mike Pouncey, OG Dallas Thomas, and DE Terrence Fede. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:51 am

  • O. Darkwa expected to take R. Jennings' role
    Orleans Darkwa is expected to share carries with Shane Vereen in the absence of Rashad Jennings (thumb) against the Redskins.

    Advice: Beat writer Jordan Raanan still expects Vereen to be New York's Week 3 lead back, but Darkwa is a sneaky bet for goal-line work and should also handle 9-13 carries off the bench. Raanan leaves the door open for "maybe a slight infusion of Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins." Vereen is a strong RB2 play in PPR leagues. Darkwa is worth a look if you're desperate for a flex play.
