Kelvin Benjamin caught 11 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

With Jerricho Cotchery sidelined, Benjamin had a team-high 11 targets. His touchdown came on a 35-yard pass from Derek Anderson late in the fourth quarter. Benjamin just missed coming down with a 20-yard touchdown in the first half, or he would of had an even bigger game. He continues to impress with his ability to make contested catches in traffic and is already one of the best red-zone receivers. Benjamin now has 19 catches, 253 yards, and two touchdowns through three games.

Antonio Brown had 10 catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

Both of his touchdowns came on seven-yard throws from Ben Roethlisberger. Brown also had a highlight over-the-shoulder 30-yard catch on third down in the second quarter. It's the 19th straight game Brown has had at least five receptions. Brown will remain a must-start WR1 against the Bucs in Week 4.

Mike Tolbert rushed three times for four yards in Sunday night's Week 3 loss to the Steelers

Tolbert took over lead back duties after Jonathan Stewart left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. He secured all three of his targets in the pass game for 20 yards. Tolbert also briefly exited with knee issue, but it didn't appear to be a major concern. With DeAngelo Williams expected to return next week, Tolbert remains off the fantasy radar.

LeGarrette Blount had 10 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

Blount took over for Le'Veon Bell late in the second half and had a 50-yard run in garbage time. He trucked Panthers FS Thomas DeCoud for an eight-yard touchdown. Blount also did one of his signature hurdles over CB Antoine Cason. The Steelers offensive line dominated the Panthers front-four, with Blount and Bell both rushing for over 100 yards. Blount could see more late-game opportunities in Week 4 against the Bucs.

Le'Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 147 yards in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

He added two catches for 10 yards. Bell's highlight of the night was an 81-yard run in the third quarter. He was held out of the end-zone for the second straight week, but continues to look like one of the league's most complete backs. Bell has 461 total yards heading into Week 4. He's locked in as a matchup-proof RB1.

Cam Newton completed 24-of-35 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Newton was sacked three times and removed late in the fourth quarter after getting shaken up on multiple hits. He was under heavy pass rush all game behind the Panthers' shaky offensive line. Newton lost a fumble on the opening drive of the second half. His touchdown came on a 37-yard pass to Greg Olsen. Newton appeared to re-aggravate his ankle injury and could be limited in practice this week. He'll remain a QB1 for an upcoming matchup against Baltimore.
Sep 22 - 12:23 AM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-30 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 37-19 blowout of the Panthers.

The Steelers didn't need their pass game with Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both rushing for over 100 yards, but Roethlisberger was able to connect with Antonio Brown for two third-quarter touchdowns. One of his touchdowns was a vintage Big Ben play where he pump faked the entire Panthers defense and made a cross-field throw to Brown. Roethlisberger should get more opportunities to throw in a matchup with the Bucs in Week 4, making him a low-end QB1. He's averaging 273 passing yards with a 3:2 TD:INT ratio through three games.

Jonathan Stewart left Sunday night's Week 3 game against the Steelers with a right knee contusion.

Stewart was forced from the game on a hit by Steelers FS Mike Mitchell in the third quarter. With DeAngelo Williams and Fozzy Whittaker already injured, it leaves the Panthers with just Darrin Reaves and Mike Tolbert at running back. Stewart had eight touches for 50 yards before exiting.
Sep 21 - 10:43 PM

Steelers RCB Ike Taylor left Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a forearm injury.

Taylor suffered a broken forearm on a tackle by ILB Lawrence Timmons. He'll likely require surgery and is looking at an extend absence. It's a potential season-ending injury. Taylor could be headed for injured reserve.
Sep 21 - 10:37 PM

Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones was forced from Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a wrist injury.

He's done for the night. Arthur Moats will replace Jones in base sets.
Sep 21 - 10:30 PM

Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier suffered a right knee injury in Sunday night's game against the Panthers and will not return.

Shazier limped off the field and was helped to the locker room. The fact that the he was ruled out immediately isn't a good sign. Vince Williams will replace Shazier next to Lawrence Timmons.
Sep 21 - 10:24 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) played on 42-of-73 snaps in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

It's 57.5 percent, up from the 43.1 percent Gronkowski had played through the first two weeks. Remember that Gronk wasn't a full-time player last season until five games after coming back from forearm surgery. If anyone is selling, we're buying Gronk as he rounds into form.

Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to return following the Week 4 bye.

Jones' timetable has been unchanged since breaking his foot early in camp. Given how much time he's missed, expect him to be eased in as a rotation player with Mohamed Sanu. Eventually, expect Jones to be the man on the outside opposite A.J. Green, leaving Sanu in a slot role. Deep leaguers should make a stash.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh offered praise for rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro following Sunday's 18-91-1 rushing performance against the Browns.

Although Bernard Pierce is tentatively expected to remain the Ravens' starter, he may be on a short leash going forward. "I think the results speak for themselves with Lorenzo," Harbaugh said after Sunday's win. "He was running downhill, physical and was hard to tackle. That is an element that is a big plus for an offense." Taliaferro needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

A source tells PFT that Adrian Peterson will try to accelerate his trial date.

Peterson won't be allowed to return to the NFL until his child-abuse case is fully resolved. The trick here will be to do that (and get exonerated) without exposing himself to a suspension under the personal-conduct policy. Or perhaps Peterson could get away with a short suspension by pleading guilty and making a public apology. Either way, the Vikings seem very willing to welcome him back. Perhaps we'll gain more clarity this week when a trial date is expected to be announced.
