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 for Week 4.
Shonn Greene rushed for 33 yards and one touchdown on ten carries in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Bengals.
Greene got the start again for the Titans. He had a long gain of 20 yards, but managed just 13 yards and a one-yard score on his other nine carries. Greene continues to lead this committee, but Bishop Sankey out-touched him 11-10 this week, albeit with garbage-time reps. Greene will likely hover around 30-40 yards weekly, and is extremely touchdown-dependent. He's a RB3/4, but gets a favorable matchup with the Colts on the schedule in Week 4.
Riley Cooper caught four passes for 34 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins.
On a day the Eagles scored 37 points and Nick Foles threw for 325 yards, Cooper was quiet once again. Meanwhile, rookie Jordan Matthews dominated out of the slot for eight catches and two touchdowns. Cooper, who now has a total of 71 yards through three games, is just a role-playing blocker. Drop him.
Dwayne Allen secured 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.
Allen's stat lines through three games are 4-64-1, 0-0, and 4-43-1. He's basically the definition of a low-end TE1 in fantasy. The Colts take on the Titans next. Look for Allen to remain in the 4-6 target range against Tennessee.
Pierre Thomas rushed eight times for 30 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 3 win over the Vikings, adding three catches for 21 yards.
Thomas got the Saints' only true goal-line carry of the day, capping off the opening drive with a one-yard plunge. It was not an indication that he's ahead of Khiry Robinson for goal-line looks, however, as Thomas' score came as the Saints quick snapped the Vikings after a Thomas reception set New Orleans up at the Minnesota one-yard line. We fully expect Robinson, who out-carried Thomas 18-8, to get those carries going forward. Thomas remains a mere FLEX play in standard leagues.
Jeremy Hill rushed for 39 yards and one touchdown on seven carries in the Bengals' Week 3 win over the Titans.
Hill didn't get much action before the fourth quarter when the Bengals were up 26-0. Still, he took advantage of his opportunities. Hill picked up chunk yards and finished a drive off with a four-yard touchdown run between the tackles. Gio Bernard is the clear No. 1 in Cincinnati, but Hill should see 8-10 touches on a weepy basis. He needs to be owned in all 12- and 14-team leagues.
Khiry Robinson rushed 18 times for 69 yards in the Saints' Week 3 win over the Vikings.
He wasn't targeted in the passing game. As expected, Robinson slid directly into Mark Ingram's role, starting the game and managing eight more carries than Pierre Thomas and Travaris Cadet combined. It was Thomas who got the Saints' lone goal-line carry, but it was a red herring. The Saints quick snapped the Vikings after a Thomas reception set New Orleans up at the Minnesota one-yard line. We still fully expect Robinson to carry the mail going forward when the Saints get inside the opposition's five. He's a high upside RB3.
