Latest Player Updates

Travis Kelce had one reception for one yard on one target against the Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Kelce was shut down by the Chargers in week 3. Consider this an outlier for one of the most consistent tight ends in fantasy football. Look for Kelce to rebound next week against the Redskins.

The Colts D/ST unit surrendered 28 points and 346 yards of offense to a Browns team led by rookie QB DeShone Kizer. The unit recorded three INTs and one sack. Kizer fumbled once but the Browns recovered.

Fantasy Impact: This was one of the better matchups for the Colts D/ST unit this year against a weak Browns offense, and they still got lit up. The turnovers allowed them to score a reasonable amount of fantasy points, but this unit cannot be trusted even in good matchups.

Cairo Santos converted from 34 yards against the Chargers. Santos also hit all three of his extra-point attempts.

Fantasy Impact: Cairo Santos continues to show consistency in his field goal opportunities. This Chiefs offense should keep putting Santos in field goal range often. Cairo remains a top 10 fantasy kicker until further notice.

Matt Jones carried once for three yards in Week 3 action against the Browns, marking his debut for the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Jones doesn't seem to be pushing for carries yet, but figures to be in the mix if Gore slows down or misses time. Keep Jones on the radar, but there is no reason to add him yet.

Robert Turbin carried five times for 18 yards and added one catch for two yards in Week 3 action against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Turbin is nothing more than the handcuff to Gore at this point. Gore is the clear lead back in the offense, and the handcuff situation is even less clear this week with the Colts promoting the former Redskins RB Matt Jones to the active roster. Turbin should only be owned in very, very deep leagues.

Chris Conley was held to zero catches on only one target against the Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Smith did not look Chris Conley's way at all this game as he was well covered throughout. Smith also only threw 21 times in the contest. The Chiefs leading the game throughout and Tyreek Hill's effectiveness really limited Chris Conley. Conley remains only a pick-up in deeper leagues until he becomes a larger part of the Chiefs offense.

Frank Gore carried the ball 25 times for 57 yards and found the end zone in the Colts' win over the Browns in Week 3. Gore added one catch for no gain.

Fantasy Impact: This was more of the same from Gore, who has a very low ceiling at this point in his career. Without passing down work or more efficiency, he is one of the more touchdown-dependent players in the league. With an increasingly crowded backfield, Gore doesn't seem a safe bet to find the end zone each week. The Colts brought in former Redskins RB Matt Jones to add depth at the position. Jones could eventually challenge for carries if Gore slows down, but the 25 carries at least indicates safe volume for now.

C.J. Prosise only saw four carries and ran for nine yards but went three-for-five in the air with 65 yards, including a huge 46-yard reception. The Seahawks lost to the Titans 33-27.

Fantasy Impact: It's a step in the right direction for Prosise, considering the Seahawks hardly utilized their running backs. Expect Prosise's value to increase over time as the Seahawks offense finds their footing.

Austin Hooper caught one pass for nine yards in the 30-26 win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Hooper has been relatively quiet since his 128 yard performance in Week 1 against the Bears. He has only been targeted six times through three games this season. With so many weapons on the offensive side of the ball for the Falcons, it will be hard for Hooper to consistently see a healthy number of targets each week.

Albert Wilson had three receptions on four targets with a touchdown against the Chargers on Sunday. Wilson also added one carry for negative four yards.

Fantasy Impact: Albert Wilson put in a decent fantasy performance this Sunday. He is now averaging right around seven points in PPR and four targets per game. Wilson could be an interesting pickup in deeper leagues and may be useful as a bye week fill-in for those in 12 man leagues.

Thomas Rawls only played one snap, and never touched the ball in the Seahawks' loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: The silver lining for Rawls is that the Seahawks only ran the ball 15 times with running backs. We'll get more of an idea of the direction Rawls will take next week against the Colts.

Graham Gano remains perfect on the season connecting on two field goal attempts and one extra point in Week 3's loss to the Saints. Gano connected on a 32-yarder and a 48-yarder.

Fantasy Impact: Gano is a top-10 option for fantasy owners the rest of the way. Continue to start him with confidence but his floor is low with the loss of Benjamin and Olsen.

Tyreek Hill had five catches on eight targets for 77 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers on Sunday. Hill also added three carries for 13 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Tyreek Hill had a solid fantasy day posting 19 fantasy points in PPR. Hill continues to flash his speed as a deep threat and will remain a legitmate WR1 going forward.

Devin Funchess finished Week 3 with four receptions for 58 yards against the Saints. Funchess was second in targets this week with 10 and should see more with Kelvin Benjamin (knee) out.

Fantasy Impact: Funchess gets a solid boost in value with the news of Benjamin's knee injury. It sounds like Benjamin will miss somewhere in the 4-to-6 week range making Funchess a must add and WR3.

Eddie Lacy was active on Week 3 after being a healthy inactive in Week 2, but wasn't utilized, playing zero snaps.

Fantasy Impact: It's hard to find an explanation. The Seahawks only ran 22 times, including seven carries from Russell Wilson. We'll get more of an idea of the direction the Seahawks are going on the ground next week, as the Seahawks play the Colts.

Updating a previous report, Kelvin Benjamin left early in the game against the Saints due to a left knee injury. It sounds like he avoided any "major" injuries or season-ending injuries but could miss a few weeks with a minor injury. Devin Funchess will be the de-facto WR1 for the Panthers. (Source: Ian Rappoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Not only did the Panthers get blown out by the Saints but the team lost their top two receivers in Greg Olsen last week and now Benjamin this week. Funchess will be a WR3 while Christian McCaffrey becomes an RB1 in PPR.

Matt Ryan racked up 294 yards and two touchdowns in the 30-26 route of the Lions. He completed 25-of-35 passes with three interceptions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ryan completed 71% of his passes to seven different players Sunday and kept the Lions' guessing for most of the game. Despite throwing three interceptions, he had gone nine consecutive games without one. Ryan will face a Bills' defense in Week 4 that has yet to give up a passing touchdown in 2017. He remains a strong QB1 play with a healthy Julio Jones and the many other offensive weapons around him.

Chris Carson ran for 34 yards on 11 carries and 18 yards and a touchdown on two receptions. The Seahawks lost to the Titans 33-27.

Fantasy Impact: The first TD hopefully of many for the seventh-round rookie. Carson only saw 11 carries, which can be attributed to the Tennessee heat and not Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls, who saw a combined zero carries. Carson should see an increase in carries next week against the Colts.

Tom Brady completed 25 of 35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns while adding a six-yard rush and losing one of three fumbles in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: While the stats may not show it, Brady struggled most of the game as the Texans were able to keep the pressure on the 40-year-old QB. Despite the pressure, Brady was able to throw some deep passes to Brandin Cooks and they seem to really be gelling together. This is good for fantasy owners as it will only increase the QB's stats. Brady should have an easier time against the Panthers in Week 4.

Rob Gronkowski caught eight of 10 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: Gronkowski who was a question mark most of the week on whether or not he would be able to play on Sunday due to a groin injury looked completely healthy. Gronkowski showed why he is the top tight end in fantasy and can be started with confidence by owners.
