49ers acquired WR Jon Baldwin from the Chiefs in exchange for WR A.J. Jenkins.

A knucklehead on and off the field in K.C., Baldwin has just 41 catches for 579 yards (14.1 YPR) and two touchdowns through two NFL seasons. He's already dropped three passes in the preseason, and Baldwin's proneness to drops has often been the result of his attempts to one-hand catches for inexplicable reasons. He just turned 24, however, and talent has never been the factor holding Baldwin back. The trade looks better at surface level for the 49ers. While Jenkins is a frail wideout who noticeably shies from contact, Baldwin at least has a chance to be rehabbed if he buys into Jim Harbaugh's program. Harbaugh has a pretty good track record of turning past disappointments into players. (E.g. Ahmad Brooks, Michael Crabtree, Alex Smith, Carlos Rogers, etc.)

Jimmy Graham caught 6-of-9 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Sep 25 - 7:30 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-44 passes for 188 yards, zero touchdowns, and SIX interceptions in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

It is the most interceptions in a game since Ty Detmer tossed seven in 2001. Needless to say, Fitzpatrick was dreadful Sunday. His stared down his targets, overthrew receivers, and tried to force the ball into tight windows when the offense was not working late in the game. He was intercepted thrice in the end zone, threw two passes that should have been picked in the three plays before his fourth interception, and effectively ended the game with a pick-six late in the fourth quarter. The Jets’ final five drives all ended with interceptions. Fitz has now sandwiched a poor and a career-ending performance around a stellar game in Buffalo. The ups and downs should continue all year, but it will likely be all down next week against the Seahawks. He can be safely sat in that contest.

Carlos Hyde rushed 21 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns and caught his lone target for two yards in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to Seattle.

Even though the 49ers were getting pasted 37-3, Chip Kelly elected to pad his team's rushing stats by continuing to run the ball against Seattle's prevent defense. Hyde's two touchdowns made the score 37-10, then 37-17, and his long gain of 34 also occurred in fourth-quarter garbage time. Fantasy owners will obviously take the stats, but all in all this was not a promising performance from the 49ers' running game. They do get a much more favorable matchup in Week 4 against the Cowboys.
Sep 25 - 7:15 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 8-of-10 targets for 164 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 blowout win over the 49ers.

It would not be hyperbole to say Baldwin was open for the entire game. He dominated the 49ers with Russell Wilson in the game, and continued to dominate when Trevone Boykin entered following Wilson's third-quarter ankle/knee injury. Boykin hit Baldin for a 23-yard strike deep down the left sideline and a 16-yard score in the second half. Baldwin will draw another favorable matchup when the Seahawks travel to the Jets for Week 4. Hopefully, Wilson will be able to give it a go.

Alshon Jeffery (knee) is active for Week 3 against Dallas.

Jeffery was fully expected to play after returning to practice Friday. Even with Jay Cutler missing his second week, he's a low-end WR1. Chicago's inactives are LB Danny Trevathan, CB Kyle Fuller, RB Ka'Deem Carey, CB Bryce Callahan, DL Eddie Goldman, and OL Eric Kush.
Sep 25 - 7:07 PM

Christine Michael rushed 20 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns and caught 2-of-3 targets for five yards in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Just as Pete Carroll described, Michael was shot out of a cannon early in this game with mammoth runs to give Seattle an insurmountable lead. He scored from 41 yards out on one of the first plays of the contest, and got in again before the first-quarter gun was shot. Although Michael has a knuckle-headed track record, he has always possessed elite athleticism and explosiveness, and it's finally beginning to come together in his fourth NFL season. So long as C-Mike keeps running like he has the past two weeks, he will remain Seattle's lead back even when Thomas Rawls (leg) heals up.
Sep 25 - 7:06 PM

Russell Wilson exited Sunday's Week 3 game against the 49ers with a left ankle or knee injury.

Wilson came into the game battling a high ankle sprain to his right leg. On a third-quarter play, Wilson appeared to injure his left knee and/or ankle and was fitted for a brace by trainers on the sideline. Trevone Boykin has entered. We did notice Wilson standing on the sideline with his helmet still on, but it would be silly for the Seahawks to let him back in up 27-3. FOX's Pam Oliver later reported Wilson's day is "done."
Sep 25 - 6:14 PM

Vance McDonald is done for the day in Week 3 with a hip injury.

The extent is undisclosed, but it's a bad sign that McDonald was almost immediately ruled out. He finished with two catches for four yards on two targets. The 49ers' tight end depth chart is rounded out by Garrett Celek and Blake Bell.
Sep 25 - 5:52 PM

Terrelle Pryor caught 8-of-14 targets for 144 yards in Cleveland's Week 3 loss to Miami.

Pryor had a featured role with Josh McCown and Corey Coleman sidelined. He rotated snaps with Cody Kessler at quarterback, rushing for 21 yards on four carries and completing 3-of-5 passes for 35 yards. The stat line is impressive, but not something owners can expect going forward. Pryor should remain the focal point of Cleveland's offense until Josh Gordon returns in Week 5.
Sep 25 - 5:39 PM

Jared Cook was spotted with his right foot in a walking boot and using crutches after the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Cook left the game in the second quarter and never returned. The Packers called the injury an ankle issue, but Cook had surgery on his right foot in June. Richard Rodgers would be in line for a bigger role if Cook is forced to miss time.

LeSean McCoy rushed 17 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns and caught 3-of-4 targets for six yards in the Bills' Week 3 upset of the Cardinals.

The Cardinals played run-tough defense in their first two games, but they were gashed in the first half of Sunday's contest. McCoy broke off a 24-yard touchdown run to open the TD scoring, and later got in from a shorter distance to give Buffalo what would prove an insurmountable 17-0 lead. McCoy did slow down in the second half, but it was a promising performance in a so-far underwhelming Buffalo offense. The Bills head to Foxboro for Week 4, where McCoy will continue to be a high-volume workhorse and fantasy RB1.
