Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 30-of-50 passes for 411 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 24. He is the first quarterback in NFL history to go over 400 yards in three consecutive games.

  Browns | Tyrod Taylor will not be shopped    Mon Sep 24, 10:41 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) is valued by head coach Hue Jackson and the organization and he won't be traded to another organization. 'He is going to be right here. He is not going anywhere,' Jackson said Monday, Sept. 24. 'I think that is important. Like I said, I think part of (Baker Mayfield) being able to play like he did was because of Tyrod and (Drew Stanton). I do not want to upset that room that way.'

  Bills | Josh Allen continues to make progress    Mon Sep 24, 08:15 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen was praised by his offensive coordinator Brian Daboll after the Week 3 win against the Minnesota Vikings. 'There were obviously some good things for him,' he said. '(He) was good with his reads, for the most part, and made some loose plays with his feet. (There are) a lot of things to still clean up on. I think his footwork is getting better, his eye control and getting the ball out on time is getting better, but there are some good examples, like there were last week, of some things we need to clean up. (It will) continue to be a work in progress.'

  Browns | Tyrod Taylor to be No. 2 QB if healthy    Mon Sep 24, 07:36 PM

  49ers | Two more QBs to work out for 49ers    Mon Sep 24, 07:13 PM

Free-agent QBs Kellen Clemens (Chargers) and T.J. Yates (Texans) are scheduled to work out for the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday, Sept. 25. The 49ers also asked free-agent QB Matt Moore (Dolphins) to participate in the workout but are not sure if he will be attending.

Footballguys view: C.J. Beathard is set to be the starter for the 49ers with Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) done for the year. Behind him, the 49ers have to find a reliable backup. The only other quarterback on the roster is Nick Mullens...and he's on the practice squad. They'll add to the room in the near future.

  Cardinals | Josh Rosen named starter    Mon Sep 24, 04:13 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has been named the starting quarterback for Week 4, according to head coach Steve Wilks.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are at home against the Seahawks in Week 4. The rookie got into the game against the Bears on Sunday and moved the chains. Rosen is smart and can get rid of the ball quickly. Fantasy GMs should only consider him a low-end QB2 or streaming option.

  49ers | Tom Savage to meet with San Francisco    Mon Sep 24, 03:43 PM

Free-agent QB Tom Savage will reportedly work out with the San Francisco 49ers later this week, according to ESPN's Jordan Schultz.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo suffers torn ACL    Mon Sep 24, 03:06 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

Footballguys view: This was feared but also expected by the 49ers after the quarterback's injury on Sunday. There are reports that indicate he could have MCL damage as well but that is not confirmed. We'll see if Garoppolo is back for the start of the 2019 season. Right now, the 49ers will turn to C.J. Beathard as their starting quarterback.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota still limited    Mon Sep 24, 02:16 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) is still unable to make every throw he needs to make, according to head coach Mike Vrabel, who added he hopes the 'whole package can come back this week.'

Footballguys view: Mariota came off the bench in Week 3 to lead the Titans to a road win against the Jaguars. He's certainly not at full strength but perhaps he'll improve enough over the week to get his normal workload and expected gameplan.

  Browns | No Monday practice for Tyrod Taylor    Mon Sep 24, 01:23 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) did not practice Monday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Taylor was replaced in the game by Baker Mayfield, and the rookie led the Browns to their first win in 635 days. It's a no-brainer decision to go with Mayfield from here on out and that's why he moved to the top of the depth chart. We'll see if Taylor can get cleared from the concussion protocol at some point this week.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield rises to top of depth chart    Mon Sep 24, 01:06 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was named the team's starting quarterback Monday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Mayfield is the future of the Browns and after leading them to a win over the Jets in Week 3 the future is now. The rookie brings exciting play to the field but Fantasy GMs should only see him as a QB2 or streaming option in deep leagues.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford throws for two scores    Mon Sep 24, 03:57 AM

  Cardinals | Sam Bradford benched in Week 3 loss    Mon Sep 24, 02:43 AM

Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford went 13-of-19 for 157 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 versus the Chicago Bears, but he also threw two interceptions. He was replaced by rookie Josh Rosen for the final two drives after committing a fourth-quarter fumble.

Footballguys view: Three turnovers will get you benched, even though Bradford got off to a good start. Rosen came in and struggled, so the Cardinals are not committing to their starter for Week 4 just yet. We should have an announcement sometime soon.

  Falcons | Matt Ryan ties franchise record    Sun Sep 23, 07:26 PM

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 26-of-35 passes for 374 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 loss against the New Orleans Saints. The five TDs were a career high and he tied the franchise record set by QB Wade Wilson back in Week 15 of the 1992 season.

Footballguys view: Ryan had a massive game for the second straight week. Calvin Ridley's addition to the offense is going to change their weekly ceiling, with a banged up defense contributing to shootout game scripts. Ryan is a strong QB1 next week against the Bengals.

  Saints | Drew Brees totals five TDs in OT win    Sun Sep 23, 07:06 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 39-of-49 passes for 396 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the Atlanta Falcons and he rushed for two scores.

Footballguys view: Brees broke the record for all-time completions and even broke tackles in the red zone on one of his touchdown runs. He's back to being an elite fantasy quarterback with Mark Ingram suspended. He and the Saints face the Giants on the road next week.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes tosses three more TDs    Sun Sep 23, 06:27 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-38 passes for 314 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the San Francisco 49ers. He now holds the NFL record with 13 TD passes through the first three games of a season.

Footballguys view: Mahomes really opened it up in the first half, when the Chiefs scored 35 points. There's no doubt that he's the #1 quarterback in fantasy football heading into a Week 4 Monday night game at Denver.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson throws for 385 yards    Sun Sep 23, 05:41 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 24-for-40 for 385 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 36 yards on five carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Watson was great for fantasy but his team fell to 0-3. He is going to be a fantasy QB1 again, but the wins and new hope for the Texans that came with Watson last year are not there this year. Watson faces an underrated Colts defense next week.

  Panthers | Cam Newton totals four TDs in win    Sun Sep 23, 05:27 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 15-of-24 passes for 150 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he ran for two scores.

Footballguys view: Newton was unstoppable as a goal line runner, and he was good enough as a passer against a Bengals defense that was supposed to be able to handle a Panthers offensive line without three starters. Consider Newton an elite QB1 going into his bye.

  Giants | Eli Manning plays well in Week 3    Sun Sep 23, 05:17 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 25-for-29 for 297 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Manning had his best game of the year by far as the Ereck Flowers-less offensive line did a great job (except against JJ Watt) and Manning was able to distribute the ball to his talented targets, even without Evan Engram for most of the afternoon. He'll be worth a streaming look against the Saints next week.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton picked off four times in loss    Sun Sep 23, 05:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 29-of-46 passes for 352 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Dalton was victimized by some deflected balls and he lost AJ Green part way through this one. He is still going to be productive, but when the Bengals are behind, the turnovers may ensue. He'll have a high ceiling against the Falcons next week.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo might have torn ACL    Sun Sep 23, 04:59 PM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) might have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Sunday, Sept. 23. 'It doesn't look good,' one teammate said.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles finishes with 155 yards    Sun Sep 23, 04:47 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 21-for-34 for 155 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

Footballguys view: One week after the best game of his career, Bortles can't even lead his team to a touchdown. The Titans gave Bortles a lot of trouble last year, and it appears that even with a new coaching staff, they have his number. The Jets underrated defense is up next week, so we'll remain in limbo with trusting the Jaguars offense.

  Vikings | Forgettable day for Kirk Cousins    Sun Sep 23, 04:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 40-of-55 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he also lost two fumbles and was sacked four times.

Footballguys view: Cousins was overwhelmed by the Bills pass rush early, and didn't do enough later to make a gameout of this. He'll face the Rams on Thursday night and probably is not a good play with his offensive line ailing and the team generating little momentum on offense.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo carted off    Sun Sep 23, 04:36 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) was carted off the field during the Week 3 game after he suffered knee injury.

Footballguys view: The team fears a torn ACL. CJ Beathard would take over, but other than running back reception numbers, this will be very very bad for the 49ers offense.

  Bills | Josh Allen earns first NFL victory    Sun Sep 23, 04:15 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed 15-of-22 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the Minnesota Vikings while also running for 39 yards and two scores.

Footballguys view: Allen led the team with energy and capitalized on the opportunities the Bills defense created against Kirk Cousins. Allen's running ability and willingness to take things into his own hands in the red zone will make him worth a streaming look against the Packers next week.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota posts 151 total yards    Sun Sep 23, 03:55 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 12-for-18 for 100 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He also rushed for 51 yards on seven carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Mariota was effective enough as a runner and short passer to scratch out field goals, which was enough with his defense holding down the Jaguars. He'll likely pilot a 2-1 team facing the Eagles next week.
