Chiefs RB Joe McKnight had one carry for three yards and caught six passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Dolphins.

After playing zero snaps in Weeks 1-2, McKnight took over as the Chiefs' primary passing-game back in the absence of Jamaal Charles (ankle). While Knile Davis held down the run-game fort (32 carries), McKnight was utilized in obvious passing situations and scored twice on red-zone quick hitters delivered by Alex Smith. With Charles likely returning in Week 4 against New England, look for McKnight to go back to the bench.

Carlos Hyde rushed three times for 13 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

He caught two passes, but lost two yards through the air. Hyde's score was a toss where he found the edge, and delivered punishment to two Cardinals defenders at the goal line. It was his second touchdown in three games, giving him one more than Frank Gore. Gore has out-touched Hyde 37-17, however. Hyde's main value comes as Gore's handcuff. Standalone, he's an RB4.

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the Dolphins.

We're not entirely sure of Kelce's snap count, but it seemed to rise considerably this week, and he was consistently involved in red-zone packages. He showed off his impressive speed on a 20-yard TD sprint, beating several Dolphins defenders to the pylon. Seemingly on the verge of a monster game, Kelce has entered the low-end TE1 realm. The Chiefs play New England in Week 4.

Frank Gore was held to 10 yards on six carries in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

Gore wasn't targeted in the passing game. Squaring off with a run defense that also had his number in 2013, Gore's 10 yards were his fewest since the 2011 season. Gore's fantasy owners were forced to watch in horror as rookie backup Carlos Hyde ripped off a six-yard score in the second quarter. Gore now has just one score to Hyde's two on the season, but has out-touched him 37-17. Gore will be a borderline RB2 against the Eagles' competent run defense in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 7:36 PM

Michael Floyd caught 5-of-9 targets for 114 yards in the Cardinals' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Floyd bounced back from his one-catch Week 2 for his second 100-yard effort in three games. Backup QB Drew Stanton targeted him nine times, a new season high. Stanton was much more willing to search for Floyd down field than he was in Week 2, and targeted him two more times than Larry Fitzgerald. A beast at every level of the field, Floyd will be a WR2 when the Cardinals come off their bye in Week 5, regardless of who's under center.
Sep 21 - 7:33 PM

Andre Ellington rushed 18 times for 62 yards in Arizona's Week 3 win over the 49ers, adding three catches for 13 yards.

The 75 yards from scrimmage were Ellington's fewest of the young season, but the 21 touches were a new high. Ellington got bottled up by a tough run defense, but looked healthy, and clearly has the commitment of his coaching staff. Frustratingly, he remains without a score, but Ellington's extreme volume keeps him in the RB2 conversation. He's averaging 4.47 yards per carry through his first 46 totes. Now he gets a bye week to rest his foot before squaring off with the Broncos in Week 5.
Sep 21 - 7:29 PM

Knile Davis rushed 32 times for 132 yards and a touchdown as the Chiefs downed the Dolphins 34-15 in Week 3.

He did fumble twice, losing one. The Dolphins held Davis to 4.1 yards per carry, but fantasy owners using him were always hanging their hat on volume. And they got it, as Kansas City leaned on its running game while nursing a lead for almost the entire game. The 32-carry workload is a reminder that Davis remains the most valuable handcuff in all of fantasy. It was slightly disappointing, however, to see passing-game back Joe McKnight "vulture" two receiving scores in the red zone, and Cyrus Gray to execute a goal-line plunge in fourth-quarter garbage time. Look for Jamaal Charles (ankle) to return to the lineup next week against New England.
Sep 21 - 7:29 PM

Colin Kaepernick completed 29-of-37 passes for 245 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions in San Francisco's 23-14, Week 3 loss to the Cardinals, adding 13 carries for 54 yards.

Kaep helped stake the 49ers to a 14-6 halftime lead, but couldn't get anything going in the second half as the 49ers self-destructed with penalties. Kaep's performance wasn't nearly as error-riddled as Week 2, but he still struggled with clock management, and sailed a few throws after the break. The rushing output was actually one of the highest of Kaep's regular-season career. Despite his up-and-down play the past two weeks, Kaep will be in the QB1 conversation for Week 4 against an Eagles defense that sweats points.
