Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the 49ers.
His yardage totals through three weeks are 57, 11, and 11. Particularly with Jimmy Graham coming on and Russell Wilson battling multiple injuries, Kearse is going to have a very hard time establishing any hint of re-draft value.
Shaun Draughn rushed five times for ten yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for two yards in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.
He finished with six touches to Carlos Hyde's 22. The 49ers did not go with Draughn despite a massive 37-3 deficit, instead feeding Carlos Hyde garbage-time carries to "narrow" the deficit to 37-10, then 37-17. Draughn isn't going to become a factor in fantasy football barring an injury to Hyde.
Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-44 passes for 188 yards, zero touchdowns, and SIX interceptions in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.
It is the most interceptions in a game since Ty Detmer tossed seven in 2001. Needless to say, Fitzpatrick was dreadful Sunday. His stared down his targets, overthrew receivers, and tried to force the ball into tight windows when the offense was not working late in the game. He was intercepted thrice in the end zone, threw two passes that should have been picked in the three plays before his fourth interception, and effectively ended the game with a pick-six late in the fourth quarter. The Jets’ final five drives all ended with interceptions. Fitz has now sandwiched a poor and a career-ending performance around a stellar game in Buffalo. The ups and downs should continue all year, but it will likely be all down next week against the Seahawks. He can be safely sat in that contest.
Blaine Gabbert completed 14-of-25 passes for 119 yards and an interception in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to Seattle.
He added 22 yards on five scrambles. After the performance, Chip Kelly continued to insist that he never considered inserting Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers simply do not have a passing game with Gabbert under center, and they seem content to get their grills pushed in by opponents before piling up rushing stats late in blowout losses. In Week 4, Gabbert will be a low-end two-quarterback-league option against the Cowboys.
Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) is inactive for Week 3.
Smith was added to the injury report Friday with his back issue, but is a surprise inactive. Chaz Green will replace him at left tackle and is a major downgrade. The rest of the Cowboys inactives are QB Tony Romo, CB Orlando Scandrick, RB Darius Jackson, S Kavon Frazier, LB Mark Nzeocha and DE Charles Tapper.
Carlos Hyde rushed 21 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns and caught his lone target for two yards in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to Seattle.
Even though the 49ers were getting pasted 37-3, Chip Kelly elected to pad his team's rushing stats by continuing to run the ball against Seattle's prevent defense. Hyde's two touchdowns made the score 37-10, then 37-17, and his long gain of 34 also occurred in fourth-quarter garbage time. Fantasy owners will obviously take the stats, but all in all this was not a promising performance from the 49ers' running game. They do get a much more favorable matchup in Week 4 against the Cowboys.
Doug Baldwin caught 8-of-10 targets for 164 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 blowout win over the 49ers.
It would not be hyperbole to say Baldwin was open for the entire game. He dominated the 49ers with Russell Wilson in the game, and continued to dominate when Trevone Boykin entered following Wilson's third-quarter ankle/knee injury. Boykin hit Baldin for a 23-yard strike deep down the left sideline and a 16-yard score in the second half. Baldwin will draw another favorable matchup when the Seahawks travel to the Jets for Week 4. Hopefully, Wilson will be able to give it a go.
Alshon Jeffery (knee) is active for Week 3 against Dallas.
Jeffery was fully expected to play after returning to practice Friday. Even with Jay Cutler missing his second week, he's a low-end WR1. Chicago's inactives are LB Danny Trevathan, CB Kyle Fuller, RB Ka'Deem Carey, CB Bryce Callahan, DL Eddie Goldman, and OL Eric Kush.
