  • Dan Carpenter BUF K
    Bills' Dan Carpenter: Boots a pair
    4h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Dan Carpenter made both of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's upset over the Cardinals -- a 19-yarder and a 45-yarder -- but missed one of four extra-point attempts.

    The extra-point attempts were a big issue last season, when six misses almost cost Carpenter his job. However, Sunday's miss was his first of the season, and he's been true on eight others. With the Buffalo Bills winning big, Carpenter's job seems fairly secure for the time being; however, his 17 points on the season put him just tied for 21st among the league's kickers.

    49ers' Phil Dawson: Misses first field goal Sunday
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Phil Dawson converted one of his two field goal attempts Sunday, hitting from 22 but missing from 53 in a loss to Seattle.

    With just three field goals through three games, Chip Kelly's uptempo offense hasn't resulted in more scoring opportunities for the veteran kicker. While Sunday's 53-yard miss likely didn't negatively affect fantasy owners, a successful attempt would have gone a long way in saving an otherwise mediocre output.

    49ers' Eric Reid: Leads team with 12 tackles Sunday
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Eric Reid led all San Francisco defenders with 12 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's blowout loss to the Seahawks.

    The 12 combined tackles marked a career-high for the fourth-year safety. Reid doesn't usually post double-digit tackle totals, but Seattle's offense was breaking through to the second level consistently Sunday, resulting in the uncharacteristically-high tackle total. Even with Sunday's inflated total, Reid is on pace to top his career-high mark of 77 tackles set in 2013.

    Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Could see additional time at inside linebacker
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jatavis Brown picked up six tackles (five solo), a sack, forced fumble and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

    Brown was a one-man wrecking crew Sunday, picking up a critical forced fumble off a sack near the end of the first half, which was then returned for a touchdown. The rookie could see his playing time increase in the coming weeks as starting inside linebacker Manti Te'o is expected to be out for the season after suffering what is believed to be an ACL tear.

    49ers' Quinton Patton: Predictably struggles against Seattle
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Quinton Patton was held to eight yards on one catch (four targets) in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

    Patton has come back down to Earth over the past two weeks after posting a five-catch, 60-yard performance Week 1. Seattle's elite defense is partly to blame, but San Francisco's offense doesn't look potent enough to produce consistent fantasy options outside of star running back Carlos Hyde. Next week's opponent isn't as imposing as Carolina and Seattle, so Patton has a better chance at producing a more PPR-friendly stat line against the Cowboys, but we wouldn't recommend him outside of an emergency option or bye week fill-in.

    Bears' Kevin White: Inefficient with team-high 14 targets
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kevin White caught six passes for 62 yards on a team-high 14 targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    It's tough to seem invisible when you get 14 targets, but White almost managed the feat until he made an acrobatic, 32-yard grab late in the fourth quarter, providing his only real highlight of the game. Zach Miller and Alshon Jeffery were both far more efficient, but the Chicago Bears will likely keep feeding their young wideout in what's quickly shaped up as a rebuilding year. Next up is a Detroit team that was roasted by Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson on Sunday.

    Bears' Brian Hoyer: Mimicks Cutler as garbage-time hero
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Brian Hoyer completed 30 of 49 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    With Jay Cutler (thumb) sidelined, the Chicago Bears went three-and-out on their first two drives, allowing Ezekiel Elliott and Co. to build a 24-3 lead by the half. Hoyer wasn't actually to blame, as the Bears were held back by penalties and an inconsistent rushing game, in addition to Dallas' dominance of possession. In fact, Chicago only ran 18 plays in the first half, including six on a drive that started at the team's own 25-yard line with 38 seconds remaining before the break. Hoyer finally took advantage of the favorable matchup after halftime, mostly honing in on Zach Miller and Kevin White, with the former accounting for both touchdowns. Things briefly got somewhat interesting midway through the fourth quarter, but Hoyer put the nail in his team's coffin with a sloppy fumble that could've easily been avoided. He'll draw another favorable matchup in Week 4 against Detroit, unless Cutler is ready to return.

  • Dak Prescott DAL QB
    Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Efficient once again
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Dak Prescott completed 19 of 24 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown, adding four carries for 36 yards and another score in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

    Prescott was once again efficient while taking a backseat to the Dallas running game, though this time around he was actually a part of the rushing attack, most notably on a one-yard plunge at the goal line. He later recorded the first passing touchdown of his career, and he was able to pick up key first downs whenever the Dallas Cowboys seemed like they might be letting the lead slip. While won't be turned loose unless the team has to play from behind, Prescott is shockingly poised and accurate for a rookie, giving him serious upside when such a scenario arises. Dating back to the preseason, he's yet to commit a turnover in the NFL. Next week brings a favorable matchup in San Francisco, though game flow could work in Ezekiel Elliott's favor more so than Prescott's.

  • Jameis Winston TB QB
    Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Throws for 405 yards, three TD in loss
    7h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jameis Winston completed 36 of 58 passes for 405 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams. He also gained 13 yards on four rushes and lost a fumble on a strip sack that was returned for a touchdown.

    The 2015 first overall pick set career highs in completions, attempts and yards in the marathon contest, but ultimately came up short when it counted most. Following an extended weather delay due to lightning in the area, Winston helped lead the Bucs down the field from their own 44 to the Rams' 15 in the closing minutes before firing four consecutive incompletions and then inexplicably taking a sack on the final play instead of throwing into the end zone. Winston's two turnovers were also costly, with his interception setting up one of Todd Gurley's two touchdown runs and his fumble getting returned 77 yards by Ethan Westbrooks for a touchdown. On the positive side, he encouragingly made use of his full array of weapons, completing passes to eight different receivers. The former Seminole will try to bounce back against what should be one of his toughest challenges of the season when he and the Bucs take on the Broncos in Week 4.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick NYJ QB
    Jets' Ryan Fitzpatrick: Throws six picks in loss to Chiefs
    8h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 44 passes for 188 yards, but he was picked off six times during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.

    Two of Fitzpatrick's interceptions were tipped and picked off in the end zone, but it was still a disastrous outing, with five of the interceptions coming in the second half. Amazingly, the New York Jets had the ball down only two scores with about five minutes left in the game, but Fitzpatrick couldn't get them into the end zone. He targeted Quincy Enunwa 11 times and Brandon Marshall 10, but neither caught more than four, and Bilal Powell led the team with 41 receiving yards. Fitzpatrick will look to put the horrible performance behind him, though the schedule only gets tougher, as the Jets will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to Pittsburgh and Arizona.

    Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 35 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 29-27 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

    The Giants took a 21-9 lead in the second quarter, but Cousins hit for long touchdowns to DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder in the second and third quarters, respectively, to start a comeback that resulted in a victory. He was more decisive Sunday, but he did not have a particularly high completion percentage once again. It was, however, an improved performance, and Cousins will have the opportunity to build off of it in Week 4 versus the Browns.

    9h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Alex Smith completed 25-of-33 passes for 237 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-3 win over the Jets.

    It was another efficient game for Smith, who managed the game beautifully with Kansas City's defense taking over (two touchdowns, six interceptions). He did a great job spreading things around, as nine different players caught at least one pass, although he primarily locked in on Travis Kelce, who finished with six receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown. The veteran quarterback has a decent matchup next week at Pittsburgh, which allowed rookie Carson Wentz to throw for 301 yards and two touchdowns Sunday.

    Shaun Draughn was held to 12 yards on six touches (five carries and one catch) in Sunday's 37-18 loss to Seattle.

    Draughn did next to nothing with his limited touches Sunday. His absence from the gameplan in a contest that the San Francisco 49ers trailed from end-to-end is concerning for a back who's value relies on getting receptions out of the backfield. This further proves that Carlos Hyde is the unquestioned, every-down back in San Francisco.

    Ezekiel Elliott gained 140 yards on 30 carries and 20 yards on two receptions (two targets) in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

    As promised by Jerry Jones, Elliott's workload wasn't impacted by his Week 2 fumble. However, he somehow failed to reach the end zone in a game that saw his team score a trio of rushing touchdowns, despite accounting for 30 of the Dallas Cowboys ' 41 carries. Dak Prescott, Lance Dunbar and Alfred Morris each scored from in close, but it didn't seems like a concerted effort to avoid using Elliott near the goal line. With 20-plus carries in each of his first three NFL games, the No. 3 overall draft pick is safely entrenched in the top 10 of the weekly rankings at his position. Elliott should stay busy in a Week 4 matchup with Chip Kelly's fast-paced 49ers.

    Jordan Howard had nine carries for 45 yards and four catches for 47 yards on six targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    Jeremy Langford handled the first two drives, picking up 13 yards on three touches before giving way to Howard, who immediately ripped off a 36-yard gain. The rookie took most of the remaining snaps in the first half, though it wasn't all that noticeable due to the Cowboys' dominance of possession. Langford then left with an ankle injury in the third quarter, leaving Howard and Raheem Mostert (zero touches) as the only healthy running backs. Although Howard struggled after his impressive first carry, he isn't exactly facing stiff competition. The Chicago backfield is still a mess to figure out, but Howard could be the default Week 4 starter if Langford and Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) are both unavailable. Howard also has the highest ceiling of the trio, as Langford and Carey have shown minimal ability to avoid tackles.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Tallies 124 yards of total offense in Week 3 start
    7h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Charles Sims gained 55 yards on 13 carries and secured six of eight targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 37-32 loss to the Rams.

    The third-year back put together a solid performance in Doug Martin's (hamstring) stead, but didn't get a full allotment of carries with the Bucs leaning heavily on the passing game in the second half. Due to his pass-catching proficiency, however, Sims was significantly involved in that aspect of the offense as well, securing a season high in receptions. The West Virginia product also notched only the second rushing touchdown of his career on a one-yard run in the second quarter, with his only other score on the ground having come back on Dec. 28, 2014 versus the Saints. Sims displayed a willingness to run between the tackles in addition to showing his trademark bounce to the outside, lending credence to the theory that he should be able to keep the Tampa running game afloat during Martin's absence. He draws a tough assignment for his second 2016 start, however, as the Bucs do battle with the Broncos in Week 4.

    Bilal Powell rushed four times for 30 yards and caught six passes on seven targets for a team-high 41 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs. He also lost a fumble.

    The New York Jets ' offense really struggled Sunday, as quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw six interceptions, including five in the second half. Most of Powell's production came late in the game, and while it was encouraging that Fitzpatrick looked his way, it still wasn't enough to make a big fantasy impact. Unfortunately, the Jets' schedule doesn't lead to optimism for a bounce back, as they will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to face the Steelers and Cardinals.

    Alshon Jeffery (knee) caught five passes for 70 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Dallas.

    While not visibly bothered by his injury, Jeffery surprisingly finished just third on the team in targets, trailing Kevin White (14) and Zach Miller (nine). The lack of volume is starting to become a concern, even though Jeffery is averaging 90 yards per game. He has just 20 targets through three weeks and has yet to find the end zone, though the latter issue is largely a product of playing for a dreadful team. In any case, the injury-riddled Chicago Bears are worse than they were last season, and Jeffery also has more competition for targets than he did at the time. While he's still a weekly must-start in nearly all formats, expectations shouldn't be based on last year's massive volume. Jeffery will face the Lions in Week 4, potentially drawing a tough assignment against top CB Darius Slay.

    Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Salvages night with late TD

    Dez Bryant caught three passes for 40 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

    Bryant hurt his knee on the game's opening drive and subsequently missed a few snaps, but he otherwise rarely left the field. However, he may have been impacted by the soreness, as NBC's broadcast showed him getting medical attention on the sideline. Bryant still managed to salvage his night -- at least to some degree -- catching a 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to give Dak Prescott the first passing score of his career. Oddly enough, Cole Beasley finished the night as the team's season-long leader in targets, receptions and receiving yards. While that obviously wont hold up unless Bryant suffers an injury, he probably won't get the consistent volume that's typical for elite wide receivers. Granted, that could change later in the season when Tony Romo (back) returns. For the time being, Bryant should enjoy a Week 4 matchup against a fast-paced San Francisco squad that was chewed up by Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham In Week 3.

Considering Inman will continue to see plenty of time on the field in the wake of season-ending ACL injuries to Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead, he still maintains some fantasy value, but likely should only be rostered in deep leagues at this point.

    Cole Beasley hauled in all seven of his targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

    Beasley was visibly shaken up after taking a hard hit on the opening series, but he returned to the game in short order and had no problem making his presence felt. He nearly posted a much bigger stat line, coming up just inches shy of the goal line on a 29-yard gain in the second quarter. As mentioned on NBC's broadcast of the game, it was the first pass Beasley has ever caught more than 20 yards downfield. Such is life for an undersized slot target, and in any case, the lack of big-play potential doesn't seem to bother Dak Prescott, who can (theoretically) look to Dez Bryant when he wants to go deep. While Bryant eventually figures to supplant him, Beasley enters a Week 4 matchup against San Francisco as the team leader in targets (25), receptions (20) and receiving yards (213).

    While a three-catch, 25-yard day is nothing to write home about, Celek did enter Sunday's contest with just two total catches. The extent of McDonald's injury is not known, but Celek would step into a larger passing role against the Cowboys next week if his fellow tight end is not able to suit up.

The third year pro's 10 targets were a career high, while his touchdowns represented his first scores since Week 12 of last season versus the Colts. Brate developed solid rapport with Jameis Winston last season in the departed Austin Seferian-Jenkins' extended absence with a shoulder injury, and that experience looks to already be paying off, particularly now that the 25-year-old is set to man the position for the balance of the campaign.

    01/12/2016 • By RotoWire Staff

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.

    Paul Posluszny underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his fractured right hand, the Florida Times-Union reports.

    The procedure obviously clouds the linebacker's Week 14 status, but at this stage Posluszny has yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts. If Posluszny is forced to sit out this weekend's action, Jordan Tripp would be in line to start in his place.

Fortunately, the Buffalo Bills have three other very capable and healthy linemen in Marcell Dareus, Mario Williams, and Jerry Hughes, though it looks like the hope of the foursome being the league's best this season may be fading thanks to Kyle Williams ' injury.
