Bears SS Ryan Mundy suffered a "serious stinger" in Monday night's Week 3 win over the Jets.

Mundy exited early in the first half. Prior to leaving, he returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown. The Bears lost both Mundy and FS Chris Conte (shoulder) to injuries against the Jets. Career special teamer Danny McCray and rookie Brock Vereen were forced to step in. The safety spots remain question marks in the Windy City. Mundy has never missed a game in six seasons.

Bilal Powell rushed for 13 yards on two carries and caught two passes for six yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Powell didn't see much, if any, action until the final drive when the Jets were in pass-first mode. He has no fantasy value as the distant No. 3 back.
Sep 23 - 12:40 AM

Jace Amaro caught three passes for 54 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Amaro was targeted four times on the night, and played on the outside a bit with Eric Decker sidelined for most of the game with a hamstring injury. The lone target Amaro didn't reel in, he dropped. There's no re-draft value here.
Sep 23 - 12:33 AM

David Nelson caught three passes for 15 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Nelson was targeted seven times, but had a rough night with two fumbles, though they were both recovered by the Jets. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Sep 23 - 12:32 AM

Brandon Marshall caught 1-of-6 targets for six yards in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

Marshall entered the night questionable due to his ankle injury. And in the second quarter, he re-tweaked the ankle while blocking. Marshall missed about seven minutes of game action but returned to play the entire second half. He clearly wasn't 100 percent, and the offense went through Alshon Jeffery. Marshall will need to be watched again on a short week prior to next Sunday's showdown with the Packers at home. He'll likely be questionable once again.
Sep 23 - 12:30 AM

Greg Salas caught two passes for 56 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Salas saw extra playing time with Eric Decker hobbled by his hamstring. The slot receiver-type can be ignored and is well off the fantasy radar.
Sep 23 - 12:27 AM

Santonio Holmes caught two passes for nine yards in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

It was Holmes' return to New York. He saw just three targets on the night as the fifth option in the passing game. Holmes added one punt return for 11 yards. He won't have any fantasy value unless one of Alshon Jeffery or Brandon Marshall gets injured. Even then, at age 30, there won't be a ton of upside.
Sep 23 - 12:25 AM

Jeremy Kerley caught seven passes for 81 yards and one touchdown in the Jets' Week 3 loss to Chicago.

With Eric Decker clearly not 100 percent and eventually forced from the game in the second quarter, Kerley saw a team-high 11 targets. On his second-quarter 19-yard touchdown, Kerley beat slot CB Isaiah Frey and was wide open in the end zone. He and Geno Smith hooked up three times on the drive. Kerley is an underrated slot receiver with sticky mitts. He should be owned in deeper PPR leagues. Kerley gets to go against a weak Lions secondary in Week 4.
Sep 23 - 12:20 AM

Martellus Bennett caught five passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

Bennett was targeted eight times on the night, and now has four touchdowns through three games. We've seen this before from him. He's dominated at the beginning of the season in the red zone the past three years before tailing off the final 2-3 months. But right now, Bennett is seeing plenty of targets to keep him in the TE1 picture. He'll remain there next week against the Packers at home.
Sep 23 - 12:17 AM

Chris Johnson rushed for 34 yards on ten carries in Monday night's Week 3 loss to the Bears.

He was targeted just twice in the passing game, but didn't reel either pass in, while one was picked off and returned for a touchdown. Johnson was outplayed big time by Chris Ivory in this one, and has been through the first three games of the season. Ivory's touches should continue to rise, and it could come at Johnson's expense. He's not a recommended Week 4 play vs. Detroit.
Sep 23 - 12:14 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught eight passes for 105 yards in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

With Brandon Marshall (ankle) clearly not 100 percent, Jeffery saw a team-high 13 targets. His big catch was a 42-yard gain down the left sideline in Antonio Allen's coverage. Jeffery also drew a 33-yard DPI penalty against Darrin Walls. Both plays led to scores for the Bears. Jeffery could have caught a touchdown, but Jay Cutler overshot him on a 2nd-and-3 pass in the end zone. Jeffery looked like his hamstring wasn't a problem. He'll be a WR1/2 next week vs. Green Bay.
Sep 23 - 12:13 AM

Chris Ivory rushed for 44 yards on ten carries in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

He added four catches for 52 yards. Ivory entered the season with five career catches across 39 games, but he now has five grabs through three contests. Chris Johnson continues to get the starts over Ivory, with each splitting touches, but it's clear Ivory is the more talented back. Jets beat writers even notice that the offense needs to go through Ivory. He's not afraid of contact and runs as hard as any back in the league. Entering the night, Ivory was averaging 4.4 YPC after contact. If the Jets are smart, they'll increase Ivory's touches at Johnson's expense. Ivory gets a tough Detroit run defense in Week 4.
Sep 23 - 12:05 AM

Matt Forte rushed for 33 yards on 13 carries in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets on Monday night.

Forte added six catches for an additional 43 yards. As is normally the case against the Jets, there wasn't much running room to be found for Forte. He had a long run of eight yards, but did manage to pick up a couple of big first downs on third-down conversions. Forte has yet to find the end zone this season, but the sledding should be much easier next Sunday at home against Green Bay.
Sep 23 - 12:01 AM

Geno Smith completed 26-of-43 passes for 316 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Jets' 27-19, Week 3 loss to the Bears on Monday night.

The stat line looks even better than Smith actually played. After showing considerable signs of improvement the first two weeks of the season, Smith reverted to his rookie-year self in this one. His two interceptions were back-breakers. His first pass of the game was an awful screen toss that was returned for a pick-six, while the second INT came in the red zone and was thrown right to Kyle Fuller in the end zone. Smith's decision-making on the final drive of the game also left many scratching their heads. The Jets host the Lions in Week 4.
Sep 22 - 11:53 PM

Jay Cutler completed 23-of-38 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 3, 27-19 win over the Jets on Monday night.

Cutler and the Bears started off hot, going up 17-3 through 16 minutes of play. But after losing Brandon Marshall to a re-injured ankle, the Jets were able to dial up plenty of blitzes and get to Cutler for four sacks and a number of other hits. Marshall later returned but wasn't near 100 percent and caught just one pass for six yards on the night. Cutler found Martellus Bennett for both touchdowns, and hooked up with Alshon Jeffery eight times for 105 yards. Cutler will be a mid-range QB1 next week when the Bears host the Packers.
