Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk caught 3-of-4 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over Cleveland.
Juszczyk caught a swing pass for his touchdown on a red-zone play, dancing into the end zone from nine yards out in the second quarter. Juszczyk did not have a single offensive touch in either of Baltimore's first two games. The Harvard alum is a more valuable real-life than fantasy player.
DeAndre Hopkins caught six passes for 116 yards in the Texans' Week 3 loss to the Giants.
He was targeted nine times on the day. Hopkins could have had a much bigger day, but he had an incredible 53-yard catch called back on an illegal formation penalty. Hopkins might be putting himself into the WR3 mix, but we're more comfortable with him in the WR4 range. He has a plus matchup at home against the Bills in Week 4. Hopkins is clearly the No. 2 or 3 option in the pass game.
James Jones caught three passes for 43 yards against the Patriots.
Jones led Oakland in receiving, but saw fewer targets than Andre Holmes and Marcel Reece. As the only every-down receiver in the Raiders' offense, he'll continue to have WR3 value. Jones has 189 yards and a touchdown through three weeks.
Andre Williams rushed for 18 yards on six carries in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.
Williams got one series to himself, but didn't do much with the carries and was way out-touched by Rashad Jennings 34-6. Jennings also gets all the goal-line looks, and cashed one in for a one-yard score Sunday. Williams has no fantasy value in re-draft leagues. He won't have any unless Jennings gets hurt.
Matt Asiata rushed 12 times for 35 yards in Minnesota's Week 3 loss to the Saints, catching 3-of-6 targets for 36 yards in the passing game.
Asiata out-touched rookie teammate Jerick McKinnon 15-4, and out-gained him 71-8. Asiata's grip on the Vikings' Adrian Peterson-less backfield is firm, but he's averaging just 3.00 yards per carry through 27 totes. He's flashed a little more playmaking ability as a pass catcher, but McKinnon's role should slowly grow. Asiata is a touchdown-dependent RB3.
Nick Foles completed 28-of-42 passes for 325 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins.
Foles took some really big hits in this one, including a cheap shot from Redskins DT Chris Baker following what was initially ruled an interception. The hit incited a brawl. But Foles showed his toughness, playing his best game of the season in terms of both reads and accuracy. He now has a streak of three straight 300-yard games riding into a Week 4 matchup at San Francisco. This Chip Kelly scheme will keep Foles locked as a strong QB1 all year.
Sammy Watkins caught only two-of-eight targets for 19 yards against the Chargers.
E.J. Manuel's inaccuracy played the biggest part in Watkins' inefficient day, but Watkins gave up on at least one route as well. Watkins' talent is unquestioned, but he will be an inconsistent fantasy player as long as Manuel is under center. Watkins will be an upside WR3 against the Texans next week.
Rob Gronkowski had three catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Raiders.
Gronkowski wasn't a major part of the offense, but was more involved than the previous two weeks. His touchdown came on a six-yard pass from Tom Brady. Gronkowski should of had another score, but dropped a pass in the end-zone. He should continue to play more snaps as he works himself back from knee surgery. Gronkowski is locked in as a high-end TE1.
