Kenbrell Thompkins caught one pass for 16 yards in Week 3.
Thompkins was active over Aaron Dobson this week. He played X receiver in three-wide sets, with Brandon LaFell the preferred option opposite Julina Edelman on running downs. Thompkins was a healthy scratch last week and remains off the fantasy radar.
Pierre Garcon caught 11 passes for 138 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Philadelphia.
Randall Cobb caught 3-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions.
The sub40 yard effort was Cobb's second straight, while he's failed to top 60 in any of Green Bay's first three games. The scores that propped his value in Weeks 1-2 were not there today. Cobb has drawn a rather modest 21 looks through the Packers' first three games, but we'd expect that average to claim. The Pack have to get the ball in their No. 2 playmaker's hands more often. Cobb remains a WR2 despite his and the Pack's slow start.
Danny Amendola had zero catches on one target in Week 3.
Amendola hasn't been involved in the offense at all this season, and is closer to being a weekly inactive than fantasy relevant. The Patriots are starting to use three-receiver sets with Julian Edelman, Kenbrell Thompkins, and Brandon LaFell on the field. Amendola dropped a touchdown from two yards out on his lone target.
Victor Cruz caught five passes for 107 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.
After a drop-filled first two weeks, Cruz reeled in 5-of-6 targets. He worked mostly against CB Kareem Jackson. Cruz took a quick slant upfield for a 61-yard gain in the first half, but was caught from behind around the 15-yard line. He later found the end zone on a post pattern from 26 yards out. Cruz stopped on a dime, changed direction, and exploded toward the end zone for the score. The Giants' passing game has found a bit of a rhythm the past two weeks. They'll look to continue it Thursday against the Redskins. Cruz is a solid WR2/3.
Virgil Green left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Seahawks with a concussion.
Green's absence means more 3-wide snaps than the Broncos wanted to run. It's good news for owners that gambled on Wes Welker.
Brandon LaFell had four catches for 46 yards in Week 3.
He was the Patriots leading receiver behind Julian Edelman. It was LaFell's first game with a catch. He can continue to be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Brandin Cooks caught 8-of-10 targets for 74 yards in the Saints' Week 3 win over the Vikings.
Cooks led the Saints in targets on a day where the Vikings did a good job eliminating big plays. Cooks was Drew Brees' primary checkdown target, and is quickly proving versatile for a Saints team learning to live without Darren Sproles. Cooks will enter next week's trip to Dallas with 18 catches for 164 yards on 24 targets. He's added three rushes for 49 yards, and is growing into WR2 value.
