Julio Jones caught 10 balls for 94 yards and a touchdown as the Falcons outlasted the Redskins 24-17 in Week 5.

Yeah, he's going to be just fine. The Falcons narrowly missed on three bomb attempts for Jones over the course of the game, and he still came away with a 15.4-point fantasy effort in standard leagues, and a 25-pointer in PPR. The clear focal point of playcaller Dirk Koetter's Week 5 game plan, Jones' highlight-reel play came on his toe-tapping, body-controlling 18-yard touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter. Julio now has 26 catches for 313 yards and four TDs through five games. Keep him rolling against an abominable Raiders pass defense in Week 6.

Jordan Howard handled 23 carries for 138 yards with two touchdowns and a lost fumble while adding five catches for a team-high 26 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bears’ Week 3 win over the Steelers.

Playing with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, Howard was nothing short of spectacular in Sunday’s victory, which happened to be the Bears’ first of the season. Howard got Chicago on the board early with a three-yard touchdown early in the first quarter and put the game on ice with a walk-off 19-yard score less than two minutes into overtime. His 28 touches Sunday were more than he had in his previous two games combined. Howard’s shoulder was definitely bothering him, particularly in the second half when he was slow to get up almost every time he got hit, but he gutted it out and came up big when the Bears needed him. It will be interesting to see how he holds up on the short week with Chicago headed to Green Bay on Thursday night.

LeGarrette Blount rushed 12 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Giants.

As Darren Sproles (wrist) went out early, the Eagles turned to a rotation of Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement. Blount was their most effective runner between the tackles and should remain a double-digit carry guy moving forward, playing more especially if Sproles' injury is serious. Either way, Blount will remain a risky, touchdown-dependent flex option in Week 4 against the Chargers.

Zach Ertz caught 8-of-10 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Ertz was the clear-cut "chalk" in DFS this week, and he paid dividends with a two-yard touchdown in addition to a bunch of short catches after which Ertz struggled to generate RAC. Ertz will get an average matchup in Week 4 against the Chargers, but he will remain a shoo-in top-ten fantasy TE1 play.

Jacoby Brissett completed 17-of-24 passes for 259 yards with a touchdown with 14 yards and two touchdowns on five rushing attempts.

It was only the fourth start of Brissett's career, but by far his best performance. Brissett had a 5-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter and added a 7-yard run for a score in the second before hooking up with T.Y. Hilton on a 61-yard catch and run for his first career touchdown pass. Brissett has had the Colts formidable at home the past two weeks at home, but will face a much tougher task on the road in Seattle.

Eli Manning completed 35-of-47 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

The Giants have enough weaponry to elevate Eli in theory, and they nearly executed against Philly. Using an exceptionally fast, up-tempo offense with a short passing game designed for Manning to get rid of the ball quickly, the Giants moved the ball much better than they did in Weeks 1-2, and nearly pulled the upset only to lose in overtime. Manning gets a better matchup in Week 4 against the Bucs. We remain skeptical of him, but he still offers fringe QB1 streamer potential versus vulnerable pass defenses. And Tampa Bay qualifies.

Sterling Shepard caught 7-of-10 targets for 133 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Shepard took a backseat to Evan Engram as the Giants' over-the-middle target in the first two games, but he woke up on Sunday highlighted by a 77-yard catch-and-run touchdown that nearly proved the game winner. Unfortunately for the G-Men, the Eagles closed out the contest with 13 unanswered points and a game-winning 61-yard field goal by Jake Elliott in overtime. Shepard is an asset in the offense, but he will be difficult to trust in Week 4 against the Bucs due to inconsistent usage.

C.J. Anderson rushed eight times for 36 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in Week 3 against Buffalo.

It's a huge letdown coming off last week's two-touchdown game. Anderson was in the lesser half of a timeshare with Jamaal Charles, who outplayed him on a per-carry basis. The Broncos featured Anderson in a workhorse role to open the year, but Charles is looking like a legitimate threat to his touches going forward. Anderson will be more of a low-end RB2 for Week 4 against Oakland.
Sep 24 - 4:59 PM

Odell Beckham caught 9-of-13 targets for 79 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

Beckham didn't put up big yardage because the Eagles did a great job tackling him after the catch, but he compensated with a pair of spectacular touchdown grabs, toe tapping along the sideline and using one hand on the second. From a health standpoint, Beckham appears to be almost-fully over his preseason high ankle sprain. He'll be a top-three WR1 in Week 4 against the Bucs, who got lit up by both Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen on Sunday.
Sep 24 - 4:58 PM

Brandin Cooks hauled in 5-of-7 targets for 131 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Cooks started out strong with a 44-yard catch down the left sideline on the first drive, but he watched Chris Hogan dominate the first half with two touchdowns. Cooks got into the act after the break, getting open across the middle and streaking 42 yards for his first touchdown as a Patriot, but he saved his best for last. After an 18-yard catch early in the drive, Cooks got open on the left side of the end zone, managed to get both feet down despite contact, and held onto the ball for the game-winning score. This was a much-need breakout for New England's No. 1, and he will once again be on the WR1 map next week against the Panthers.
Sep 24 - 4:58 PM

Mike Evans caught 7-of-12 targets for 67 yards on the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

Evans had Xavier Rhodes draped all over him, so PPR owners should be happy to come away with nearly 14 fantasy points. The beneficiary was DeSean Jackson, who went for 84 yards and a score, while Cameron Brate scored his first touchdown of the season. Evans will get another difficult Week 4 draw against Janoris Jenkins. We'd still rank Evans as a top-15 wide receiver play for that one.
Sep 24 - 4:49 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 7-of-9 targets for 153 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s game versus the Browns.

Hilton had five catches for 145 yards at halftime. He had four receptions of 20 yards or more in the opening half, capped by a 61-yard catch and run in which he weaved through the Browns’ defense. Hilton had only seven catches for 106 entering Sunday, but it was a positive sing that he’s still capable of producing a big line without Andrew Luck in the lineup. Next week is a lot tougher, however, as the Colts head to Seattle.
