Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins both went down with season-ending injuries in Week 1, and Browns running back Nick Chubb suffered the same fate in Week 2. Chubb's absence is one of the important Week 3 Fantasy football injuries heading into the Week 3 NFL schedule. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow dealt with a calf strain throughout the preseason and tweaked his calf again at the end of last week's game. The Bengals have already lost their first two games, putting their backs against the wall on Sunday.
Burrow's status for Sunday's game is unknown, so his owners might want to adjust their Fantasy football strategy. Should you make a waiver-wire addition to your Week 3 Fantasy football lineups?

Top Week 3 Fantasy football injury projections
One Fantasy football injury that the model can help you deal with: Browns running back Nick Chubb. He suffered a season-ending knee injury on Monday, leaving Cleveland without its star running back. The Browns turned to Jerome Ford for the remainder of the game and he finished with over 100 rushing yards in a quality showing.
They re-signed Kareem Hunt earlier this week, but he will slot behind Ford on the depth chart. Hunt's availability for Sunday's game against Tennessee has not been confirmed, giving Fantasy owners another reason to go with Ford as their top pick off the Fantasy football waiver wire. However, Ford's production is anything but guaranteed, as he had just 36 yards on 15 carries in Week 1.
SportsLine's model is expecting his Week 3 performance to land closer to his Week 1 showing than Week 2, as Ford is finishing with just over 50 yards on 15 carries in the latest simulations.
