  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick has disastrous outing    Mon Sep 26, 12:04 AM

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20 of his 44 pass attempts for 188 yards and an 18.2 QB rating while tossing a career-worst six interceptions in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. 'The trust is the same,' head coach Todd Bowles said Sunday, Sept. 25. 'He had a bad day at the office. Last week, he had a great day at the office.'

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill tosses three TDs    Sun Sep 25, 09:56 PM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 25 of his 39 pass attempts for 319 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also ran once for two yards.

Footballguys view: Tannehill was far from perfect, but he took advantage of an easy matchup padded by overtime stats. Next week, he faces the Cincinnati defense that Trevor Siemian took apart, but still will only be one of many streamer choices.

  Seahawks | Sprained MCL for Russell Wilson?    Sun Sep 25, 08:01 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (knee) is believed to have a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee. That is the initial belief after the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He will undergo further testing.

Footballguys view: Rookie UDFA Trevone Boykin was solid in relief of Wilson. With a strong defense he could execute a limited gameplan and still give the Seahawks a chance to win on the road against the Jets next week. In a stroke of schedule luck, Seattle has a bye in Week 5.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle, knee) suffered a knee injury in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers, he did not aggravate his ankle injury. Rookie QB Trevone Boykin replaced him and will finish up the game, according to the team.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson getting treatment    Sun Sep 25, 06:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) left the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers and he is receiving treatment on the sidelines, likely for the ankle injury he has been dealing with the past two weeks. Rookie QB Trevone Boykin replaced him.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles has uneven performance    Sun Sep 25, 05:52 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 24-for-38 for 194 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. He also rushed for 17 yards on three carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Bortles' fantasy day was saved by Allen Robinson, but otherwise he looked frustrated against the Ravens. He is no longer an everyweek QB1, although the Colts matchup next week could be one to roll the dice with Bortles because of their lack of pass rush and depth in the secondary.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton shaky in Week 3 loss    Sun Sep 25, 05:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton threw for 206 yards and an interception Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: We'll give Dalton a pass for this one because of the matchup. Miami is up next week and they made Cody Kessler look viable today, so Dalton will earn streamer consideration once again.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor produces with arm, legs    Sun Sep 25, 05:25 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 14-for-25 for 119 yards and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on nine carries during the game.

Footballguys view: The Bills offense got back to basics, which included Taylor on some designed runs, one of which went for a score. He's still a low ceiling play as long as Sammy Watkins isn't himself, which looks like it could be the case all year.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian solid on road    Sun Sep 25, 05:04 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian threw for four touchdowns and finished with 312 yards Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Siemian finally consistently put the ball in places where his talented wide receiver duo could make things happen. This breakout performance comes just in time for a great matchup against Tampa that could push Siemian into streamer consideration.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer struggles in Week 3    Sun Sep 25, 04:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer went 26-for-50 for 287 yards and four interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Palmer was a disaster as the running game failed to put him in good down and distances and the receivers couldn't get open downfield. Worries about his game degrading from the preseason aren't going away after this performance against a Bills defense that Ryan Fitzpatrick dismantled ten days ago. Los Angeles and their sometimes strong defense comes to town next week in a game that will test our ability to trust him in our lineups.

  Panthers | Cam Newton throws three INTs    Sun Sep 25, 04:50 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton went 21-for-35 for 262 yards and three interceptions against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3. He also rushed for 26 yards and one touchdown on seven carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Newton was thwarted by a Vikings defense that has to be considered among the elite at this point. Newton has a much more favorable matchup at Atlanta next week. This will probably be his low watermark on the season.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers has four TDs in Week 3    Sun Sep 25, 04:39 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns and finished with 204 yards passing Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Rodgers was on fire in the first half, with help from a resurgent Jordy Nelson. The second half saw the Packers take their foot off of the gas on offense, but Rodgers still goes into the bye on a high note.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford solid in Week 3    Sun Sep 25, 04:24 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 385 yards and scored three touchdowns in his team's 34-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Footballguys view: Stafford was able to take advantage of two plays where Marvin Jones was able to break a long play in part because of a defensive error. The Lions running game was lost without Ameer Abdullah, but Stafford should continue to be the center of the game plan in Chicago next week. He's an everyweek QB1 at this point.

  Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton active    Sun Sep 25, 03:58 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) and WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) are officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

Footballguys view: Luck has been managed in practice and possibly dealing with shoulder fatigue. We'll watch this situation to see if it starts to affect his passing ability. That this is an issue so early in the season could be a bad sign.

Footballguys view: Brandon Marshall is active, but he is reportedly going to be on a snap count. He's a lower ceiling WR3/Flex this week and Quincy Enunwa might be a better fantasy start.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 12-for-18 for 174 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Two of the four scores went to Jordy Nelson, who also had a long catch and run play that showed Nelson is all the way back from his ACL tear. The Lions defense is very weak against the pass without Ezekiel Ansah and DeAndre Levy.

Footballguys view: Haden being out will help the case of Ryan Tannehill and DeVante Parker in your starting lineup today. Coleman will be out for 4-6 weeks, but the more positive news about Josh McCown makes him worth a stash again in deeper leagues.

  Browns | Josh McCown to miss several weeks    Sun Sep 25, 10:10 AM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown (shoulder) is expected to need two to four weeks to recover from a broken collarbone in his non-throwing shoulder. He wanted to harness the left shoulder and continue playing but the team denied his request.

Footballguys view: The doomsday predictions for the Browns offense might have been premature if this report is correct. Josh Gordon's value would be restored if McCown can play in a few weeks, and Corey Coleman, Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson, and Gary Barnidge will be viable plays if McCown returns to the lineup.

  Patriots | T.J. Yates a possibility in Week 4?    Sun Sep 25, 01:27 AM

Free-agent QB T.J. Yates is a possible option for the New England Patriots in Week 4 if they feel that QBs Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) won't be healthy enough to play, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. The Patriots worked out Yates on Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: The Patriots could probably win with Yates against the ailing Bills next week. Unless the quarterback is Jimmy Garoppolo, LeGarrette Blount will be the only safe play in the New England offense.

  Bears | Brian Hoyer concerned about chemistry?    Sat Sep 24, 10:38 PM

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer has pointed out throughout the week that he has not had many reps with WR Alshon Jeffery this season.

Footballguys view: Jeffery is still the kind of receiver who can adjust on the fly to poor passes and otherwise have his talent reign on the field no matter the circumstances. Hoyer was able to feed DeAndre Hopkins enough to make him an elite fantasy wide receiver, so as long as Jeffery is active tonight, you have to play him.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry to be busy in Week 3?    Sat Sep 24, 09:49 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry is a 'tremendous receiver,' according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt, and QB Philip Rivers said Henry's 'catches are coming.'

Footballguys view: Henry has a high bar to clear to be relevant for fantasy leagues as a rookie tight end, but the Chargers have a need for weapons with their top receiving back and wide receiver out for the season. Deep and TE premium league players should keep an eye on him.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian still adjusting    Sat Sep 24, 04:04 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said QB Trevor Siemian is still adjusting to the speed of the NFL but needs to make better decisions with the ball.

Footballguys view: Siemian doesn't challenge a defense with his arm, and he's thrown three interceptions in two games. The Broncos spent a first-round pick on Paxton Lynch in the 2016 NFL draft, and he could get onto the field at some point this year if Siemian doesn't start to play better. Siemian faces a tough challenge against the Bengals in Week 3 in what is his first road start in the NFL.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to play Sunday    Sat Sep 24, 10:59 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will play in Week 3's game against the San Diego Chargers, even though he is listed as questionable on the injury report, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. He was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, after practicing on a limited basis Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Luck was beat up against the Broncos last week. He's set to light up a bad Chargers defense in Week 3. We wouldn't be surprised to see him finish as the best fantasy QB in this matchup.

  Texans | Brock Osweiler takes blame for loss    Sat Sep 24, 12:14 AM

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he takes the blame for the performance of the offense against the New England Patriots in Week 3, and he said he will become a better quarterback because of the experience.

Footballguys view: Osweiler should be better than he is right now. He's spent four years developing in Denver, but he looked lost against the Patriots on Thursday night. We'll see how the team gets him more comfortable to see if Osweiler can be more reliable.

  Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo could play in Week 4    Fri Sep 23, 11:49 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has a chance to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about this QB situation later in the week. Both Garoppolo and rookie Jacoby Brissett (thumb) are banged up and Tom Brady still has one more game on his suspension.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo's recovery on schedule    Fri Sep 23, 11:29 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) has begun throwing, and his recovery from a back injury is going well, executive vice president Stephen Jones said Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: We could see Romo back in action for the Cowboys somewhere around Week 8. In the meantime, rookie Dak Prescott will continue to start at QB.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson not on injury report    Fri Sep 23, 10:06 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and was not listed on the injury report for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: The 49ers gave up a huge game to Cam Newton last week. If Wilson is more mobile and able to drive his throws than what we saw last week, he might return to his QB1 ways this week.

  Cowboys | Dallas' Friday injury report    Fri Sep 23, 07:35 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) and DE Charles Tapper (back) have been ruled out for Week 3. LB Mark Nzeocha (Achilles') is listed as doubtful, while DE Jack Crawford (shoulder), OT Doug Free (quadriceps), CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) and OT Tyron Smith (back) are listed as questionable. Romo, Scandrick and Tapper did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23. Nzeocha and Smith were limited during practice, while Crawford and Free fully participated in practice.

  Bears | Jay Cutler doubtful     Fri Sep 23, 07:11 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

Footballguys view: There was some talk earlier in the week that Cutler might try to push to play, but that hasn't happened. Brian Hoyer will get the start, which is much worse for the Bears win/loss prospects than their passing game fantasy prospects.
