Free-agent TE Devin Asiasi (Browns) is signing with the Cleveland Browns practice squad, per sources Monday, Sept. 25.
|Footballguys view: Asiasi worked out for the Browns last week, and they decided to give him a shot. A former third-round pick (2020) of the Patriots, Asiasi was known as a receiving threat at UCLA but he's done little as a pro in that department (four career catches).|

Ravens | Josh Johnson returns to Baltimore Mon Sep 25, 03:18 PM
Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Ravens) is re-signing with the Baltimore Ravens, per sources Monday, Sept. 25.
|Footballguys view: Johnson has been on about half the rosters in the NFL, and he's been with the Ravens a few times over the course of his career. He'll work as the team's no.3 quarterback behind Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley.|
Josh Johnson player page
Colts | Anthony Richardson still in protocol Mon Sep 25, 03:10 PM
Indianapolis Colts QB Anthony Richardson (concussion) is still in the concussion protocol, per sources Monday, Sept. 25.
|Footballguys view: The Colts went with Garnder Minshew in Week 3, and they won against the Ravens in overtime. Minshew is a solid veteran backup who can be an effective starter if they need him. Richardson will work his way through the league's concussion protocol and could be available this week.|
Dolphins | Jaylen Waddle progressing Mon Sep 25, 03:06 PM
Miami Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (concussion) is still in the concussion protocol but the team is optimistic about his progress, per sources Monday, Sept. 25.
|Footballguys view: The Dolphins didn't need Waddle on Sunday as they dropped 70 points on the Broncos' defense. Waddle seemed to be close to returning in Week 3, so we feel good about his availability for Week 4.|
Jaylen Waddle player page
Saints | Derek Carr week-to-week Mon Sep 25, 01:42 PM
New Orleans Saints QB Derek Carr (shoulder) is considered week-to-week with a sprained AC joint but has not been ruled out yet in Week 4, per sources Monday, Sept. 25.
|Footballguys view: Carr is unlikely to be ready in Week 4 as he's dealing with a sprained AC joint. That means Jameis Winston gets to start against his old team (Buccaneers) on Sunday.|
Derek Carr player page
Raiders | Jimmy Garoppolo in concussion protocol Mon Sep 25, 01:37 PM
Las Vegas Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) is in the concussion protocol, per sources Monday, Sept. 25.
|Footballguys view: We'll see how he progresses during the week. The Raiders have veteran Brian Hoyer as their primary backup, and he's got plenty of starting experience if Garoppolo can't play in Week 4. However, we like rookie QB Aidan O'Connell, and we'd love to see him get an opportunity as a starter in this league. Before the draft, there were some who considered him a sleeper coming out of Purdue. He performed well at the Shrine Bowl, and O'Connell also flashed starter's ability in the preseason.|
Jimmy Garoppolo player page
Chargers | Mike Williams has torn ACL Mon Sep 25, 12:17 PM
Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 3, and his season is over.
|Footballguys view: Big Mike Williams is a fantastic player when he's healthy, but he does get injured quite a bit as a pro. Now, he's dealing with a serious injury that will cost him the rest of the 2023 season. Williams has a $32 million cap hit in 2024, but the team could move on from him and eat $12 million in dead money. The Chargers will move forward with Joshua Palmer and rookie first-round pick Quentin Johnston as no.2 and no.3 options behind Keenan Allen.|
Mike Williams player page
Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes OK Mon Sep 25, 11:39 AM
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) is 'all good' after rolling his ankle in the Week 3 game, according to a source.
|Footballguys view: Mahomes has played through nagging ankle problems before. He could be limited this week in practice to give him some rest, but he should be out there slinging passes all over the field for the Chiefs in Week 4.|
Patrick Mahomes II player page
Chargers | Joshua Kelley disappoints yet again Sun Sep 24, 07:37 PM
Los Angeles Chargers RB Joshua Kelley rushed 11 times for just 12 yards in his second straight start in place of the injured RB Austin Ekeler (ankle) in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. He added a 5-yard catch on his lone target.
|Footballguys view: Kelley did get a chance to score in short yardage, but the Vikings run defense came to life after being humiliated by the Eagles last week and the Chargers were doing a much better job moving the ball through the air. Even if Austin Ekeler doesn't play next week (the Chargers bye is in Week 5), Kelley is only a what the heck flex coming off of two duds as the starter.|
Joshua Kelley player page
Chargers | Keenan Allen goes crazy in Week 3 Sun Sep 24, 07:34 PM
Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen posted 18 receptions for a career-high 215 yards on 20 targets in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, and he also threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to WR Mike Williams.
|Footballguys view: Allen has already been the focal point of the Chargers passing game, that should only increase with Mike Williams going down due to a leg injury. Allen might be a first round pick if drafts were held next week. As long as he stays healthy, he'll be one of the biggest value picks of 2023 even though he cost you a third round pick in most drafts.|
Keenan Allen player page
Chargers | Justin Herbert goes over 400 yards Sun Sep 24, 07:28 PM
Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert completed 40-of-47 passes for 405 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. He set a career best with 26 first-half receptions, he has set the franchise record with 213 consecutive attempts and counting without an interception, and he is the second-fastest player in NFL history to reach 15,000 passing yards, in his 52nd career regular-season game. He is also the fourth-fastest player to reach the 100-touchdown mark.
|Footballguys view: The Chargers went pass heavy even though they were successfully run heavy in Week 1 against Miami and the Eagles ran all over the Vikings last week. Herbert might be missing Mike Williams for a while, but his tight ends and #3 receiver picked up the slack. He's leveling off as a solid QB1 under the guidance of Kellen Moore.|
Justin Herbert player page
Packers | Six grabs for Luke Musgrave Sun Sep 24, 07:14 PM
Green Bay Packers TE Luke Musgrave ended up with six receptions for 49 yards on eight targets in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.
|Footballguys view: Musgrave was open for a big play that would have gone for 40-50 yards, if not a touchdown, but Jordan Love missed him. His value is trending up and he's worth a look as your TE1 this week on Thursday against the Lions. Make sure Musgrave isn't on your waiver wire.|
Packers | Romeo Doubs gets into the end zone Sun Sep 24, 07:06 PM
Green Bay Packers WR Romeo Doubs posted five grabs for 73 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 12 targets in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.
|Footballguys view: Doubs caught the game winning score on a trust throw from Jordan Love with perfect timing into tight coverage. Christian Watson may not be ready for Thursday night against the Lions and either way with Jordan Love shaking off a poor start to post a very strong finish, Doubs should be in consideration as a WR3/Flex next week.|
Bears | Justin Fields woozy after rush attempt Sun Sep 24, 06:56 PM
Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (head) left the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs after appearing visibly shaken up after a hard hit on a rushing attempt in the red zone. WR DJ Moore actually grabbed him, and ushered the quarterback to the sideline. It was a tough day for Fields and the Chicago offense, as he completed just 6-of-16 passes for 42 yards, no touchdowns and an interception, while running 10 times for 46 yards, before departing.
|Footballguys view: Fields and the Bears offense isn't just plateauing, it is regressing. The Chiefs defense will make a lot of offenses look bad this year, and at least the Bears are facing the Broncos at an even lower point in their season arc, but Fields is on fantasy benches until further notice. The good news if you have Fields is that this is identical to last year, and anyone who dropped Fields regretted it as he was a strong QB1 from Week 5 on.|
Justin Fields player page
Saints | Derek Carr expected back this season Sun Sep 24, 06:39 PM
Updating previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Derek Carr's (shoulder) shoulder injury is not believed to be as serious as initially feared, and is he is expected to return to the lineup at some point this season, according to sources.
|Footballguys view: It still sounds like Jameis Winston will be the Saints quarterback in Week 4 and a while beyond. Winston wasn't very aggressive with the ball, but he entered with the team leading 17-0. The Saints have one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league, so hopefully this won't be too damaging for Chris Olave and Michael Thomas's value.|
Derek Carr player page
Jaguars | Calvin Ridley held in check Sun Sep 24, 06:29 PM
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley caught three passes for 40 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He was targeted seven times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Ridley was huge in Week 1, quiet in Week 2, and expected to be excellent against a Texans secondary missing one of their best corners. Instead, he was a disappointment along with the rest of the Jaguars passing game. He'll face his old team next week and projects as a boom/bust WR2 against Atlanta.|
Calvin Ridley player page
Jaguars | Christian Kirk reaches end zone Sun Sep 24, 06:26 PM
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Christian Kirk caught four passes for 54 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He was targeted six times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Kirk's touchdown saved what would have been a big letdown on a day that was supposed to be big because Zay Jones was sitting and Kirk was facing a vulnerable Texans pass defense. We'll probably leave Kirk in as a WR3/Flex next week, but check practice reports for Jones' status.|
Christian Kirk player page
Jaguars | Travis Etienne productive in Week 3 Sun Sep 24, 06:10 PM
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne rushed for 88 yards on 19 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He also caught four passes for 50 yards during the game.
|Footballguys view: Unfortunately for Etienne'e fantasy teams, Tank Bigsby got the short touchdown run, which has already happened twice this year. The Texans defense did at least stick to their trend of giving up big games to opposing backfields. The Steelers will be up next for Houston, so perhaps we can get something out of a Pittsburgh back for fantasy. Etienne will face Atlanta and is still looking like a solid pick at ADP.|
Travis Etienne Jr. player page
Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence throws for 279 yards Sun Sep 24, 06:10 PM
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence went 27-for-40 for 279 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries during the game.
|Footballguys view: Lawrence was one of the biggest disappointments of the day against a Texans defense that was very easy to move the ball against last week vs. Colts. Lawrence will face the up and down Falcons defense next week and isn't a sure QB1 for fantasy until he builds some momentum.|
Trevor Lawrence player page
Texans | Outstanding game for Tank Dell Sun Sep 24, 05:57 PM
Houston Texans WR Tank Dell caught five passes for 145 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He was targeted seven times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Dell reeled in two deep balls, one inside the five, and one long score that iced the game. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires, and against the Steelers next week, he should probably be in lineups. Dell has a chance to be the most valuable rookie receiver in redraft leagues if this connection with fellow rookie C.J. Stroud persists.|
Dolphins | Tyreek Hill goes big yet again Sun Sep 24, 05:57 PM
Miami Dolphins RB Tyreek Hill finished with nine grabs for a game-high 157 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos.
|Footballguys view: This is becoming routine for Hill, who is the epitome of the old "you can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him". The Broncos didn't contain Hill today. The Bills will try to next week.|
Tyreek Hill player page
Texans | Dameon Pierce reaches end zone Sun Sep 24, 05:55 PM
Houston Texans RB Dameon Pierce rushed for 31 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He also caught three passes for 28 yards during the game.
|Footballguys view: Pierce's touchdown was set up by a deep ball to Tank Fell inside the five, so if it wasn't for that, it would have been another dud for him, even in a comfortable win by the Texans. The Jaguars run defense deserves some recognition, and Pierce's value is still trending up after his team showed themselves to be much more competitive than expected. Consider him a flex play against the Steelers next week.|
Texans | C.J. Stroud plays well in Week 3 Sun Sep 24, 05:54 PM
Houston Texans QB C.J. Stroud went 20-for-30 for 280 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. He also rushed for 14 yards on three carries during the game.
|Footballguys view: Stroud didn't have to air it out because the Texans defense and special teams helped them lead for almost the entire game. He was still a good fantasy play and helped shut the door on the Jaguars with deep passing to fellow rookie Tank Dell. Stroud is shaping up as one of the best late round quarterback picks. He'll be tested by the Steelers pass rush next week.|
Dolphins | Raheem Mostert totals four touchdowns Sun Sep 24, 05:48 PM
Miami Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert rushed 13 times for 82 yards and three touchdowns, while adding seven receptions for 60 yards and a score on his seven targets in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
|Footballguys view: Mostert had four touchdowns and he wasn't even the best fantasy running back on his team today. We'll probably never be able to say that again. There hasn't been a bigger value pick at running back so far this year. Mostert will take aim at the Bills next week.|
Raheem Mostert player page
Dolphins | De'Von Achane has amazing afternoon Sun Sep 24, 05:45 PM
Miami Dolphins RB De'Von Achane rushed 18 times for 203 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos, and he added four grabs for 30 yards and two touchdowns on his four targets in a blowout victory at home.
|Footballguys view: Achane hadn't gotten in on significant action before this week, but that will change going forward. He'll be the top waiver priority in any leagues where he's available and viable as a flex going forward. Even when Jeff Wilson and Salvon Ahmed are healthy, it will be tough for the Dolphins to put Achane back on the bench.|
Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa tosses four touchdowns Sun Sep 24, 05:39 PM
Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 23-of-26 passes for 309 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos, as the Dolphins posted a franchise-best 70 points. In fact, it was just the fourth 70-point game in NFL history including the playoffs.
|Footballguys view: Tagovailoa was nearly flawless and exposed the Broncos defense. He would be drafted much higher in fantasy drafts held today, and is an everyweek start going forward. The Dolphins red hot offense will face the resurgent Bills defense in Buffalo next week.|
Tua Tagovailoa player page
Jets | Garrett Wilson catches five passes Sun Sep 24, 05:30 PM
New York Jets WR Garrett Wilson caught five passes for 48 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 3. He was targeted nine times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Wilson didn't break any big plays against a tough Patriots defense, so consider this a floor game. Expect more from Wilson next week in a game that should ask the Jets to throw a ton to try to keep up with Patrick Mahomes.|
Jets | Breece Hall struggles in Week 3 Sun Sep 24, 05:28 PM
New York Jets RB Breece Hall rushed for 18 yards on 12 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 3. He also caught one pass for nine yards during the game.
|Footballguys view: The Patriots overplayed the run today, so Hall didn't have a chance to be fantasy relevant. The Chiefs matchup next week is also terrible for his outlook, so consider putting a buy low offer out there for Hall. Remember his best games last year came with Zach Wilson at quarterback.|
Broncos | Marvin Mims shows off his speed Sun Sep 24, 05:25 PM
Denver Broncos WR Marvin Mims registered three receptions for 73 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins, and he also had a 99-yard kickoff return for touchdown and 121 total return yards.
|Footballguys view: Eventually the Broncos are going to have to make Mims a big part of their passing game plan. He's worth an upside WR3/Flex start against the Bears next week.|
Broncos | Jerry Jeudy targeted seven times Sun Sep 24, 05:23 PM
Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy ended up with five receptions for 81 yards on seven targets in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.
|Footballguys view: Jeudy also had a touchdown wiped off of the board by penalty. While he won't live up to the 3rd/4th round investment it took to land Jeudy before his hamstring injury, he does have a chance to be a WR3/Flex or top bench receiver to fulfill his draft cost after his injury. The Broncos poor defense will keep them throwing more often than Sean Payton wants.|
Jerry Jeudy player page
Broncos | Courtland Sutton has good and bad game Sun Sep 24, 05:21 PM
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton posted eight receptions for a team-high 91 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins, but he also lost two fumbles.
|Footballguys view: Sutton was the player Russell Wilson looked for the most on extended plays, but Jerry Jeudy is rounding into form and rookie Marvin Mims is demanding to be used more in the passing game, so this could be a high water mark for Sutton's value this season.|
Courtland Sutton player page
Broncos | Russell Wilson goes over 300 yards Sun Sep 24, 05:06 PM
Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson completed 23-of-38 passes for 306 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins, and he did not have any rushing attempts.
|Footballguys view: Wilson had a solid fantasy day because he was playing against a prevent defense for most of it. He's set up to be a mild fantasy success because of how bad the Broncos defense is, but next week Denver faces the Bears in a game that should allow them to be conservative on offense.|
Russell Wilson player page
Browns | Elijah Moore good for nine catches Sun Sep 24, 05:04 PM
Cleveland Browns WR Elijah Moore ended up with nine receptions for 49 yards on his nine targets in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, while going for minus-1 yard on three rushing attempts.
|Footballguys view: Moore had a fumble and didn't post any big plays, but the Browns focus on him in the short passing game in a game against a tough run defense was a good development for his fantasy value. He's a what the heck flex against the Ravens next week with the arrow pointing up.|
Elijah Moore player page
Browns | Amari Cooper hits triple digits Sun Sep 24, 05:02 PM
Cleveland Browns WR Amari Cooper ended up with seven receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans.
|Footballguys view: Cooper had a long score to ice the game and didn't seem to be bothered by the groin injury that popped up last week. Deshaun Watson is playing better and that's good enough to keep Cooper in lineups heading into a matchup with the Ravens.|
Amari Cooper player page
Patriots | Ezekiel Elliott leads team in rushing Sun Sep 24, 04:55 PM
New England Patriots RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 80 yards on 16 carries against the New York Jets in Week 3.
|Footballguys view: Elliott only got three fewer carries than Rhamondre Stevenson, and he was more productive than Stevenson. The first two games quelled fears that Elliott could make this a true committee, but a winning game script that allowed the Patriots to be more conservative showed a different approach to the backfield management. Elliott showed he's worth a roster spot in leagues with longer benches today.|
Ezekiel Elliott player page
Browns | Jerome Ford scores first NFL rushing TD Sun Sep 24, 04:53 PM
Cleveland Browns RB Jerome Ford rushed 10 times for just 18 yards in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, but he posted his first career rushing touchdown. He also added two receptions for 33 yards and a score on three targets.
|Footballguys view: Ford was in on over half of the snaps got the key red zone touches, so this was a big success and reassuring if you spent a lot on him on the waiver wire. The Browns defense should allow them to stay balanced on offense, and Ford didn't do anything to discourage the team from keeping him as the lead back next week in a showdown with Baltimore.|
Lions | Sam LaPorta finds end zone Sun Sep 24, 04:45 PM
Detroit Lions TE Sam LaPorta caught eight passes for 84 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He was targeted 11 times during the game.
|Footballguys view: LaPorta had a long score and was a frequent short range target for Jared Goff. He's looking like a strong high floor TE1 through three weeks, blowing up the long term trend of rookie tight ends needing time to matter in fantasy leagues, and showing his ceiling this week. He should be in lineups until further notice.|
Lions | Amon-Ra St. Brown surpasses 100-yard mark Sun Sep 24, 04:43 PM
Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown caught nine passes for 102 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He was targeted 12 times during the game.
|Footballguys view: St. Brown was questionable with a toe injury coming into this one, but you wouldn't know it from his fantasy production. He had yet another catch inside the five, but Jared Goff finished the drive with a run. Even though St. Brown has been on the injury report, you have to feel good about taking him in drafts through three weeks. We'll watch his practice reports heading into a short week of rest and Thursday game at Green Bay.|
Amon-Ra St. Brown player page
Lions | Jahmyr Gibbs productive in Week 3 Sun Sep 24, 04:39 PM
Detroit Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs rushed for 80 yards on 17 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3.
|Footballguys view: The Lions trusted Gibbs as the lead back, including on inside runs, with David Montgomery sitting because of a thigh injury. While it wasn't a big game for fantasy, Gibbs showing that he can be trusted and productive on the tough runs is a good thing for his long term value. He'll probably start again vs. the Packers with a short week of rest for the Thursday game, and he's worth an RB2/Flex slot in your lineup.|
Browns | Deshaun Watson tosses two touchdowns Sun Sep 24, 04:36 PM
Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson completed 27-of-33 passes for a season-high 289 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, and he added 16 rushing yards on four attempts.
|Footballguys view: Watson had his best game as a Brown by a large margin. The Titans pass defense was a good matchup as expected, and Watson hit Amari Cooper for a long bomb to ice the game and help fantasy teams that trusted him after a slow start. He'll face the Ravens in an AFC North showdown next week.|
Deshaun Watson player page
Lions | Jared Goff finishes with 243 yards Sun Sep 24, 04:32 PM
Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff went 22-for-33 for 243 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. He also rushed for three yards and one touchdown on five carries during the game.
|Footballguys view: Goff had one poor pass, but otherwise was steady and kept this offense on schedule all day in a balanced win for the Lions. He'll face the Packers on Thursday and should be in consideration as a high floor/low ceiling QB1.|
Jared Goff player page
Falcons | Drake London held to 31 yards Sun Sep 24, 04:28 PM
Atlanta Falcons WR Drake London caught two passes for 31 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. He was targeted six times during the game.
|Footballguys view: London got a play from behind game script to activate the passing game, but the Lions defense was outstanding in this one and limited everything the Falcons tried to do. London is going to be a boom/bust WR3/Flex play week-to-week until further notice, with the Jaguars up next.|
Falcons | Five receptions for Kyle Pitts Sun Sep 24, 04:25 PM
Atlanta Falcons TE Kyle Pitts caught five passes for 41 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. He was targeted nine times during the game.
|Footballguys view: Pitts at least got nine targets and had a decent game vs. a defense that had been very generous opposing tight ends so far this year. The Falcons need to use his rare gifts to perk up a morose offense. He and the rest of the Falcons will try to get back on track against the Jaguars next week.|
Kyle Pitts player page
Titans | DeAndre Hopkins hauls in three balls Sun Sep 24, 04:19 PM
Tennessee Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) shook off an ankle injury to play in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns, posting three grabs for a team-high 48 yards on seven targets.
|Footballguys view: Hopkins is a seasoned pro who can play through injuries, but in this offense, he can't be a fantasy relevant player while he's not 100%. Hopefully his practice participation can ramp up next week heading into a matchup with the Bengals.|
DeAndre Hopkins player page
Falcons | Bijan Robinson has decent outing Sun Sep 24, 04:15 PM
Atlanta Falcons RB Bijan Robinson rushed for 33 yards on 10 carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. He also caught four passes for 27 yards during the game.
|Footballguys view: Robinson was miserable with the rest of the Falcons offense in a surprisingly slow day against a Lions defense that looked very vulnerable coming into this game. The Jaguars have been tough on the run so far this year, and that's who Robinson will get next week.|
Titans | Derrick Henry does next to nothing Sun Sep 24, 04:15 PM
Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 11 times for just 20 yards in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns, and he did not have a reception or any targets.
|Footballguys view: It's hard to say how much of this was the stout Browns defense, how much was Henry's toe injury, and how much was a poor game script that had the Titans playing from behind. Henry will be low ceiling RB2 until we see him regain form.|
Derrick Henry player page
Titans | Ryan Tannehill struggles mightily Sun Sep 24, 04:12 PM
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill completed 13-of-25 passes for 104 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns, and he did not have any rushing yardage.
|Footballguys view: The Browns defense is shaping up as one of the best in the league. They smothered the Titans offense in every way and will square off with Lamar Jackson next week. The Titans are still very much in the mix in the worst division in football and they have a winnable game against the Bengals next week.|
Ryan Tannehill player page
Falcons | Desmond Ridder throws for 201 yards Sun Sep 24, 04:09 PM
Atlanta Falcons QB Desmond Ridder went 21-for-38 for 201 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Detroit Lions in Week 3.
|Footballguys view: The Falcons needed more from Ridder in a game where they couldn't establish the run and they trailed for most of the contest. After a strong finish to Week 2, Ridder wilted against a defense that was easy for Geno Smith to solve without his starting tackles last week. Ridder was set up for a big fantasy game and didn't deliver, so it will be tough to trust him in superflex leagues next week despite a good matchup at Jacksonville.|
Chargers | Mike Williams out of game Sun Sep 24, 03:42 PM
Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 3 game and is considered questionable to return.
|Footballguys view: Williams had to take the cart back to the locker room. Joshua Palmer caught a score on a ball that should have been picked in relief of Williams, and he's the pickup over first round pick Quentin Johnston, who has been used sparingly. It's also possible that tight ends Gerald Everett and Donald Parham are more involved in the passing game if Williams has to sit for multiple weeks. The Chargers get the Raiders next week.|
Mike Williams player page
Ravens | Gus Edwards leaves early Sun Sep 24, 03:34 PM
Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards (head) left the Week 3 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
|Footballguys view: Melvin Gordon III and Kenyan Drake got more work after Edwards left. He was running well against a tough Colts run defense. We'll be watching the practice reports to see if Edwards will be available for next week's showdown with Cleveland.|
Gus Edwards player page
