Trey Burton snagged two-of-six targets for 19 yards Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.
Burton may have been the only receiver Carson Wentz didn’t have great chemistry with on Sunday. Both of his catches came in the first half before the Eagles laid waste to the Steelers with a 21-point third quarter. Burton earned more targets than blocking tight end Brent Celek but Celek outgained him by 42 yards. Zach Ertz (ribs) could return after the Eagles’ bye week, which would likely send Burton back to the bench.
Dorial Green-Beckham hauled in three-of-four targets for 33 yards Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.
His 33 yards were a season-high. Green-Beckham has now seen just 10 targets over his first three games and has yet to score a touchdown. Until his volume increases, fantasy owners can leave him on the waiver wire.
Nelson Agholor snared all three of his targets for 21 yards Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.
With Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood doing the heavy lifting, the Eagles didn’t need Agholor to do much on Sunday. He performed when called upon but obviously Agholor didn’t play a big role in this one. Agholor has averaged just five targets per game this season. That’s barely enough to keep him on the WR4/5 radar.
Kenjon Barner rushed eight times for 42 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Steelers.
His eight-yard touchdown in the third quarter put an exclamation point on a huge win for the Eagles. Barner split carries with Wendell Smallwood, though he wasn’t involved in the passing game. It’s unclear what kind of role Barner can expect going forward, but he’ll certainly get more run if Ryan Mathews’ ankle injury lingers.
Cameron Brate caught 5-of-10 targets for 46 yards and two touchdowns in Tampa's Week 3 loss to the Rams.
The Bucs' clear-cut No. 1 tight end following Austin Seferian-Jenkins' release, Brate drew four red zone targets in all. Brate offers extremely little upside, but is looking like a reasonable-floor TE2.
Adam Humphries caught 9-of-12 targets for 100 yards
Benefitting from comeback mode for the second straight week, Humphries' receptions were a career high while the 100-yard game was his first. Humphries' catch totals have gone from three to six to nine, and yards from 34 to 67 to 100. He's surpassed Vincent Jackson on the targets totem pole, but isn't a touchdown threat. He's probably fool's gold in standard leagues.
Charles Sims took the rock 13 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in Tampa's Week 3 loss to the Rams, catching 6-of-8 targets for 69 yards.
Sims ceded six touches to Jacquizz Rodgers, but slid right into a workhorse role with Doug Martin sidelined. His touchdown, a goal-line carry, came after two failed attempts. It was a gift for Sims' fantasy owners that the Bucs stuck with him after getting brickwalled. Sims dished out a number of nice cuts, but looked a bit upright and stiff. He's an extremely useful player, but not about to Wally Pipp Martin. Sims will be a mid-range RB2 against the Broncos' elite defense in Week 4.
Mike Evans caught 10-of-13 targets for 132 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Rams.
The catches were a career high, while Evans now has at least five grabs for 70 yards in all three games this season. He's scored each time out, and already matched his 2015 touchdown total. He's benefitted from the Bucs being forced into comeback, but has a whopping 38 targets. It's been the best-possible start, but Evans has a nightmare Week 4 matchup in the Broncos' league-best defense. He'll be more WR2 than WR1 for that one.
