Cecil Shorts caught eight passes for 143 yards in Sunday's 45-17 Week 3 loss to the Jaguars.

Shorts didn't see shadow coverage from Richard Sherman or Brandon Browner, but that's not why he ended up with a very useful fantasy line. Shorts did his damage after the Seahawks removed most of their starters while nursing a 31-7 lead with four minutes left in the third quarter. He continued to play hard, making acrobatic catches and taking plenty of punishment. Shorts ended up with 15 targets on the day and now has back-to-back games with eight grabs. Being a talented player on a really bad team has its benefits. Shorts had 128 of his 143 yards in the second half.

Tyler Lockett was not targeted in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over San Francisco.

Lockett entered this game listed as questionable with a knee injury, but his health was not an issue. He returned a punt 62 yards and nearly took it to the house, but simply wasn't a big part of the passing game on a day where Doug Baldwin (8-164-1) and Jimmy Graham (6-100-1) did the heavy lifting. Lockett will continue to be a volatile fantasy option in the Seahawks' offense. His yardage totals through three games are 17, 99, and 0.

T.Y. Hilton caught 8-of-11 targets for 174 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' 26-22, Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Hilton did battle against Chargers rising star CB Jason Verrett for much of the day, but got the better of him when all was said and done. Hilton made a slick grab deep down the sideline with Verrett draped on him in the third quarter, and then accounted for the game-winning 63-yard score late in the fourth quarter, running right by the defense down the middle. The knee "injury" that had Hilton listed questionable proved to be a non-issue. Hilton will be a WR1/2 next week when the Colts travel to London to face the Jaguars.

Eric Decker caught 1-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

And with this horrendous performance by the Jets offense, Decker’s streak of 18 consecutive games with 80 yards or a touchdown is snapped. Decker had just one target in the first half, and he did not get his first catch until early in the fourth quarter. Decker was targeted in the end zone in the second half, but Eric Berry went up high to break up the pass. Ryan Fitzpatrick was terrible Sunday, and it will not get any easier with the Seahawks coming to town next week. Still, Decker will be a good bet to start a new streak in that game.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed after Sunday's win that Russell Wilson has a sprained knee.

The left leg injury originally appeared to be to Wilson's ankle, but it turned out to be to Wilson's knee, on which a brace was placed by trainers on the sideline. The fact that Wilson kept his helmet on and was lobbying to reenter on Sunday suggests he fully intends to play in Week 4 against the Jets. "Most likely he's going to be fine," coach Pete Carroll conceded. "Because that's just how he operates." On the off chance Wilson can't get clearance, UDFA Trevone Boykin would make the start.

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

Graham and Christine Michael were monsters in this one, giving Seattle a 37-3 lead before the 49ers chipped away in garbage time. Coming off a ruptured patellar tendon, Graham looked fully back to form by skying to make contested catches in the open field and appearing in excellent shape physically. Graham needs to be picked up in all fantasy leagues ahead of a Week 4 date with the Jets. He is back to being a full-time player in Seattle's offense.

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."
