Vincent Jackson caught 2-of-9 targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Tampa Bay's Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

Sep 18 - 11:55 PM

Playing in relief of an injured Josh McCown (thumb), Mike Glennon completed 17-of-24 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in Tampa Bay's 56-14, Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

Glennon technically didn't commit any turnovers, but had a snap sail over his head. The Falcons recovered, setting up shop at the Bucs' two-yard line. Glennon later had another miscommunication with C Evan Dietrich-Smith, lining up in shotgun with EDS thought he was under center. It was hard to evaluate Glennon with the game so out of hand, but he looked better than McCown has this season, though he averaged a measly 5.0 yards per attempt. He found Vincent Jackson for a three-yard score in the fourth quarter. McCown's hand was heavily wrapped after his departure, making him look like a long-shot for Week 4. If Glennon starts, he'll do so on the road against the Steelers, and be a bottom-barrel QB2 as the Bucs search for an offensive identity.

Steven Jackson rushed 14 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's 56-14, Week 3 bombardment of the Falcons.

S-Jax's two-yard score in the third quarter — where he stood up four Bucs defenders to put the Falcons up 49-0 — was his first of the season. Jackson could have had two first-quarter scores, but was gassed by the time the Falcons reached the red zone on each of their first two drives. Jackson is running with extremely little lateral agility these days, but still has more than enough power to churn out yardage up the middle. The leader of the Falcons' four-man committee, Jackson is also by far the best touchdown bet. He's a safe RB3.

Bobby Rainey rushed 10 times for just 33 yards in Tampa Bay's 56-14, Week 3 loss to the Falcons, catching seven passes for 64 yards while also losing two fumbles.

The 97 yards from scrimmage were actually a best-case scenario for a player who was briefly benched following his first fumble in the first quarter, and could have been sent to the pine for good after coughing it up on the Bucs' opening drive of the second half. Thankfully, coach Lovie Smith showed mercy on a night where his entire team stunk. Rainey's long-term role remains up in the air with Doug Martin (knee) likely back for Week 4, but he's going to keep getting work, and quite possibly lead a committee. Rainey should remain owned in 10-12 team leagues.

Julio Jones caught 9-of-11 targets for 161 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 3 humiliation of the Bucs.

Spending most of the game lining up opposite RCB Johnthan Banks, Jones found every inch of space in the Bucs' zone coverage, racking up the second most yards of his regular-season career in just two and a half quarters. The Falcons pulled their starters up 49-0 midway through the third quarter. Jones' second touchdown, a 40-yarder, was perhaps the best catch by any player this season. Reeling in an over-the-shoulder grab, Jones showed ridiculous body control and awareness as he caught the ball going to the ground in the end zone. One of the very best players in the NFL, Jones heads into the Falcons' Week 4 trip to Minnesota with 23 catches for 365 yards and three touchdowns. He has at least seven grabs in all three games.
Sep 18 - 11:25 PM

Devin Hester caught just one pass for 25 yards in Atlanta's Week 3 demolition of the Bucs, but added a 20-yard rushing touchdown and punt-return score.

Hester took a second-quarter punt 62 yards to the house, giving him 20 combined career kickoff- and punt-return touchdowns to break Deion Sanders' record. Overall, Hester totaled 68 yards on three punts as his former coach Lovie Smith bafflingly kept kicking it to him. Hester's rushing score — which put the Falcons up 28-0 15 minutes into the game — was the first of his career. Although Hester was everywhere tonight, he drew just one target in the passing game, even with Roddy White sitting out. He remains off the fantasy radar.
Sep 18 - 11:17 PM

With the Falcons winning 49-0, Matt Ryan departed Atlanta's Week 3 game against the Bucs midway through the third quarter after completing 21-of-24 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns.

Ryan simply did whatever he wanted against a defense that looked like it had no clue what was going on, ripping apart zone cushions from the opening whistle. Ryan found superstar Julio Jones for nine catches, 161 yards and two touchdowns. Ryan has now bookended his terrible Week 2 road start with two dominating efforts at home. He heads on the road again in Week 4, with the Falcons traveling to Minnesota. Ryan is locked in as a high-end QB1.

Harry Douglas was forced from the Falcons' Week 3 game against the Bucs with a left foot injury.

Douglas is technically questionable to return, but it did not look good when he went down. He tried to make it to the sideline before collapsing on the field. He could barely put any weight on his left foot as he headed to the locker room. Even if the injury isn't serious, he won't be returning to a blowout. Douglas was having a nice night in Roddy White's absence before going down, catching 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown.
