Packers signed No. 122 overall pick OL J.C. Tretter to a four-year contract.

The NFL isn't waiting for training camp anymore to sign its rookies. They're getting deals done before rookie minicamp. Tretter played tight end and left tackle at Cornell. He's ticketed for the interior line in Green Bay.

Coach Chuck Pagano said he doesn't think T.Y. Hilton's ankle injury is "too severe."

Hilton had five catches for 80 yards late in the second quarter when he went down. The Colts don't sound very concerned, hinting at a standard kind of sprain. Owners could protect themselves by adding Hakeem Nicks or Donte Moncrief.

Kyle Rudolph will have an MRI on his groin Monday.

Note that Rudolph was limited in practice this week due to an abdominal injury. It's unclear if the injury he suffered against the Saints is an aggravation. Rudolph did not look good before leaving, catching three passes for 27 yards on five targets.

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.

Dennis Pitta suffered a right hip dislocation in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Browns.

It's the same hip Pitta dislocated and fractured in training camp of 2013. Per the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are concerned Pitta suffered a fracture, as well, something that can only be revealed based on testing. He will undergo an MRI shortly. If Pitta is done for the season -- which seems likely -- the Ravens will have to find ways to incorporate Torrey Smith more into their offense. Owen Daniels would take over as Baltimore's primary tight end.

LeSean McCoy rushed 20 times for 22 yards and caught one pass for zero yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins.

McCoy left briefly early on to be checked for a concussion, but that wasn't the issue here. An Eagles offensive line that was the best in the league last year is currently operating at a bottom-five level thanks to injuries and suspensions. They had no prayer against a speedy Redskins front that we need to start taking very seriously against the run. The only shred of good news is that McCoy rushed 20 times compared to two for Darren Sproles, squashing any silly RBBC concerns. McCoy is a good bet to bounce back despite a tough matchup at San Francisco in Week 4.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall tore his Achilles' tendon in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Washington.

It's one of the most devastating injuries a player can have, especially for a 30-year-old corner that relies so heavily on cutting ability. Hall, who signed a four-year, $17 million contract in February, leaves the Redskins very thin in the secondary. They'll continue to be a team for offenses to attack via the air, not the ground.
Sep 21 - 4:50 PM

Jeremy Maclin caught eight passes for 154 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Redskins.

Maclin owners felt sick after he had an early 80-yard touchdown wiped out by a silly block in the back by Jason Kelce. But he dominated after that, making some really tough catches and continuing to show zero ill-effects from last season's ACL tear. Maclin now has a touchdown in three straight games and has been targeted at least 10 times in each of them. He'll be a strong WR2 against the 49ers in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 4:45 PM

Kirk Cousins completed 30-of-48 passes for 427 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Philadelphia.

Robert Griffin III may never get his job back. Cousins turned in one of the best performances by a quarterback all season, repeatedly throwing perfectly into tiny windows all over the field. He's clearly very comfortable in this Jay Gruden scheme that turned Andy Dalton into fantasy's No. 5 overall quarterback last season. Cousins has touch matchups coming up (vs. NYG, vs. SEA, at ARZ), but needs to be owned in all formats. If he holds off RG3 all year, note that the Redskins host this rancid Eagles pass defense in Week 16 -- also known as fantasy Super Bowl week.

Allen Robinson reeled in 7-of-10 targets for 79 yards in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Robinson racked up catches in garbage time after drawing the start over Allen Hurns, who scored a 63-yard touchdown on his lone reception against the Colts. A 21-year-old athletic marvel with a 42-inch vertical, Robinson is more of a Dynasty league stash than re-draft starter. Still, he could become a WR3 option during bye-week crunches now that the Jags have installed Blake Bortles at quarterback. The Jaguars head to San Diego next.
Sep 21 - 4:31 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley named Blake Bortles the team's starter for the rest of the season in his post-game press conference Sunday.

Although Bortles threw two interceptions in the second half of Sunday's loss to Indianapolis, including a pick six, he did lead two touchdown drives and breathed life into Jacksonville's previously inept offense. Bortles finished 14-of-24 passing for 223 yards, two scores, and the two picks after taking over to start the third quarter. He added 30 yards on two scrambles. The Jags head to San Diego next. If Bortles plays well, he could appear on the QB1 streamer radar as soon as Week 5, when Jacksonville faces the Steelers' swiss cheese defense. He's worth grabbing in all two-quarterback leagues.

Taking over for an injured Matt Cassel (broken foot), Teddy Bridgewater completed 12-of-20 passes for 150 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Vikings' 20-9, Week 3 loss to the Saints.

He added six rushes for 27 yards. With Cassel dealing with "several fractured bones," it will be Bridgewater under center for the foreseeable future in Minnesota. Operating behind an ineffective offensive line, Bridgewater extended plays with elusiveness, and was more effective than Cassel has been the past two weeks. He showed good awareness, and had nice touch on his passes. We like his odds of getting the Vikings' Adrian Peterson-less offense moving more than Cassel. Bridgewater's first start will come at home against the Falcons next Sunday. It's a winnable game, but Bridgewater isn't yet on the QB2 radar.
