Rams re-signed SLB Jo-Lonn Dunbar to a two-year, $3.5 million contract.

Thus ending Ray-Ray Armstrong's brief stay atop St. Louis' "Sam" 'backer depth chart. Dunbar, who turned 29 today, made ten starts in 2013, finishing with 39 empty tackles. His run defense slipped, but he's familiar with new DC Gregg Williams from New Orleans and a favorite of the coaching staff. Dunbar is a two-down linebacker across from James Laurinaitis and Alec Ogletree.

Chris Thompson rushed eight times for 38 yards and caught 6-of-7 targets for 150 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

Thompson was left wide open out of the backfield for a 22-yard touchdown on Washington’s opening drive. He got most of his yardage from a 74-yard screen play where nearly out ran the Raiders secondary for a second score. Thompson worked behind Samaje Perine with Rob Kelley sidelined, but continued his hot start to the season despite playing only 28 snaps. Thompson has 350 total yards and four TDs through three games. He’s a high-end FLEX for Week 4.

Kirk Cousins completed 25-of-30 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns in Washington's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

It was a highly efficient game from Cousins after shaky starts the last two weeks. His highlight was a back-shoulder fade to Josh Doctson for a 52-yard touchdown, with his other scores coming on a red-zone pass to Vernon Davis and a check down to Chris Thompson. Cousins was forced to spread it around without Jordan Reed, completing at least one pass to six different receivers. It’s a much needed breakout with Cousins facing pressure in a walk year. Cousins has another primetime matchup with the Chiefs in Week 4.

Michael Crabtree suffered a chest injury in Week 3 against the Redskins.

Crabtree took a big hit on a third down pass in the fourth quarter. X-rays were negative, but he's done for the night. Crabtree had just one catch for seven yards before exiting.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Darren Sproles suffered a broken arm Week 3 against the Giants.

Sproles will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis, but it looks like he is going to miss several weeks. RapSheet believes he is a candidate for injured reserve. With Sproles out, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement shared snaps against the Giants. Smallwood would figure to see the biggest boost in playing time with Sproles sidelined, but this likely will prove to be an unpredictable timeshare.

Phillip Rivers completed 20-of-40 passes for 237 yards with three interceptions Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

Rivers nearly had a fourth interception off a deflected pass in the fourth quarter, though the call was changed to an incompletion on review. Either way, it was a dismal performance from Rivers, who was picked off three times in the first half and never showed even the slightest semblance of rhythm with any of his receivers. A gunslinger if there ever was one, Rivers insisted on challenging the Chiefs with deep passes downfield, an approach that backfired spectacularly. Rivers has now thrown an incredible 21 interceptions over his last 12 games going back to last season. It will be hard to trust him even in an inviting home matchup against the Eagles next week.

Kareem Hunt cruised to 172 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries while adding one catch for 11 yards Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Another week, another stellar performance by Hunt, who has gone over 100 yards from scrimmage in all three games this year. He’s the first rookie to begin his career with three straight 100-yard games since Matt Forte did the same thing back in 2008. The Chargers had no answer for Hunt, who spent the afternoon breaking off chunk gains with little to no resistance. He saved his best for last, icing the game with a masterful 61-yard touchdown dash in the fourth quarter. Through three weeks, Hunt has averaged an absurd 8.53 yards per carry with six touchdowns. He’s also on pace for 2,138 rushing yards, which would break Eric Dickerson’s single-season record set in 1983. And to think that if Spencer Ware hadn’t torn his PCL, Hunt could be buried on the bench right now. The Toledo product will look to continue his incredible run next week on Monday Night Football against the Redskins.

Geronimo Allison caught 6-of-8 targets for 122 yards in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

With Randall Cobb (chest) out, Allison operated as the No. 3 receiver behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. His eight targets were third on the team behind Ty Montgomery (12) and Nelson (9). Allison did have a bad drop late in the fourth quarter but more than made up for it with a tough sideline catch on the same drive and then getting loose for the big 72-yard gain in overtime on a free play that set up the winning field goal two plays later. Cobb may not be ready to return on a short week, so Allison could have some WR4/FLEX appeal Thursday night against the Bears.

Thomas Rawls was held without a touch in Seattle's Week 3 loss to the Titans.

Per Pro Football Focus' snap guru Nathan Jahnke, Rawls was on the field for one play. Eddie Lacy played zero snaps. Chris Carson was the Seahawks' feature back, with C.J. Prosise handling passing downs. We'd imagine Rawls will typically get a touch or two, but this looks to be Carson's backfield for the foreseeable future. Rawls is droppable in 10-12 team leagues.

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 52 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

Green Bay's offense was stuck in the mud the entire first half, as they managed just 73 passing yards and saw Aaron Rodgers get sacked five times. But things heated up after the break, with Nelson scoring two touchdowns to bring the Packers back from a 14-point deficit. His first was a wide-open busted coverage and the second a perfectly-thrown out route where only Nelson could catch it. It came with 17 seconds left to force overtime. Nelson appeared to avoid setbacks with his quad injury and will be a shoo-in WR1 on Thursday night against the Bears.

Joe Mixon rushed 18 times for 62 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Packers.

He caught all three of his targets for an additional 39 yards. After seeing touch totals of 11 and 10 in Weeks 1 and 2, new OC Bill Lazor committed to Mixon in this one. Jeremy Hill got eight touches, and Giovani Bernard only five but scored a touchdown. The three mixed and matched early on, but Mixon was the one in the backfield most of the second half. He wasn't able to break any big plays, but Mixon showed his patience and make-them-miss skills a number of times. It's safe to say Mixon is a comfortable RB2 moving forward under Lazor. The Browns are next on the schedule.

A.J. Green caught 10-of-13 targets for 111 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' 27-24, Week 3, overtime loss to the Packers.

The squeaky wheel got the grease in predictable fashion. Green's words after the Week 2 loss to the Texans at home played a large part in the firing of OC Ken Zampese. New play-caller Bill Lazor made it a point to scheme the ball to Green with quick passes. Green's 10-yard touchdown got the scoring started in the first quarter. It was a perfect dart from Andy Dalton. Green started slow but should be in for a big rest of the season. He gets the Browns on the road in Week 4.
