Robbie Gould connected on 3-of-4 field goals, including a 52-yarder in the first quarter, and drilled all three of his extra point attempts during the 49ers' 36-9 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Gould was once again impressive, though he did miss his first field goal of the year. Regardless, he should continue seeing plenty of opportunities on Kyle Shanahan's dynamic offense and is locked in as a top-5 option for fantasy purposes.

San Francisco 49ers D/ST held the Giants to 231 yards of total offense while sacking Daniel Jones two times and forcing three turnovers during their 36-9 victory in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Despite numerous injuries across the board, the 49ers' D/ST was able to produce in a plus matchup against the lowly Giants who just lost Saquon Barkley for the year. This defense is certainly less potent than last year mainly due to all the injuries, but figures to be a serviceable option in Week 4 against Carson Wentz and the Eagles.

Ross Dwelley hauled in each of his four targets for 49 yards during the 49ers' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Dwelley saw more snaps than usual after Jordan Reed (ankle) exited the game and did not return. Nick Mullens seemed to look his way quite often and the two showed great chemistry. It's possible that Reed is forced to miss some time with his injury but it's also possible that George Kittle (knee) could in Week 4, keeping Dwelley in a backup role. He is not a recommended fantasy option due to the depth at tight end this year, though he would be on the streaming radar if Kittle and Reed were to sit in Week 4.

Mohamed Sanu hauled in his only target for nine yards during the 49ers' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Sanu was barely involved in the 49ers' offense on Sunday and is clearly not going to see a large role for the time being. It will only get more difficult for him to produce, however, as Deebo Samuel (foot) and George Kittle (knee) could return any week, further crowding this 49ers' receiving room. Sanu will not be a recommended fantasy option for the teams Week 4 matchup against the Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

JaMycal Hasty rushed two times for nine yards and secured his lone target for an additional nine yards during the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants' on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hasty operated behind Jerick McKinnon (ribs) and Jeff Wilson Jr. in this one but saw some extra snaps when McKinnon suffered an injury to his ribs. Just activated from the practice squad earlier this week, Hasty has a good shot to stay on the 49ers' active roster for a couple more weeks with all of the injuries currently plaguing the running backs. If McKinnon and Raheem Mostert (MCL) are forced to miss Week 4, Hasty and Wilson Jr. would be in line to lead the 49ers' backfield against the Eagles.

Trent Taylor secured his only target for 20 yards during the 49ers' Week 3 victory over the Giants' on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Even with all of the injuries currently plaguing the 49ers' passing game, Taylor failed to take advantage of the increased opportunity. He operated behind Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, Jordan Reed, Ross Dwelley and each of the 49ers' two running backs in this one and is currently not a recommended fantasy option.

Jordan Reed managed to catch 2-of-6 targets for 23 yards before exiting with an ankle injury during the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants' in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: As if the 49ers' needed another injury to deal with, Reed left the game after landing awkwardly on his ankle while attempting to secure a touchdown catch. Ross Dwelley replaced him and filled in admirably, catching all four of his targets for 49 yards. With George Kittle (knee) likely to return in Week 4, Reed's time as the starting tight end may be coming to an end, but his health will remain the number one concern heading into the week. The 49ers' should provide an update on his status at some point in the coming days.

Kendrick Bourne caught 4-of-6 targets for 63 yards during the 49ers' Week 3 dismantling of the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Bourne was once again active in the passing game but took a backseat to rookie Brandon Aiyuk. With the 49ers' still dealing with a plethora of injuries, Bourne should continue to see around 4-6 targets per game until the offense is back to full health. Things may not come as easy in Week 4 against the Eagles, however, where Bourne will be a low-end streaming option.

Brandon Aiyuk brought in 5-of-8 targets for 70 yards while adding 31 yards and a score on the ground during the 49ers' 36-9 victory over the Giants' in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Aiyuk was incredible as he was the featured early and often in this one. He led the 49ers' in targets, receptions and receiving yards while also rushing three times for 31 yards and a score. The talented rookie showed what he is capable of when given the opportunity, albeit it was against the Giants, but he should be plenty busy in the 49ers' Week 4 game against the Eagles on Sunday Night Football. If he is on the waiver wire in your league, he is worth an add.

Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 12 times for 15 yards and a score while adding three receptions for 54 yards and another score through the air during the 49ers' 36-9 victory over the Giants in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Although Wilson Jr. was able to punch in a 2-yard touchdown in garbage time, he was relatively held in check on the ground. He was, however, able to do much of his damage through the air, catching all three of his targets for 54 yards and 19-yard touchdown reception early in the fourth quarter. He did operate behind Jerick McKinnon early on but was given more work after McKinnon went down with an injury to his ribs. It's unclear if McKinnon's injury is anything serious or if the teams lead back, Raheem Mostert (MCL), will be able to return in Week 4 but Wilson Jr. could be staring at a big workload if they both are ruled out. He is worth a waiver wire add due to all of the injuries currently plaguing the 49ers' running game.

Nick Mullens completed 25-of-36 passes for 343 yards and a touchdown during the 49ers' Week 3 win over the lowly Giants. He rushed four times but failed to gain a single yard.

Fantasy Impact: Starting in place for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), Mullens did exactly what was needed to help lead the 49ers' to victory. His 108.9 quarterback rating marked a career-high and his only blemish was taking two sacks. He did a fantastic job spreading the ball around, completing a pass to eight different receivers while displaying excellent chemistry with rookie receiver Brandon Aiyuk. If Garoppolo is forced to miss another week, Mullens would be on the streaming radar as the 49ers' travel back home to take on the Eagles.

Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for 38 yards and a touchdown while hauling in 3-of-4 targets through the air for 39 yards during the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: With Reheem Mostert (MCL) and Tevin Coleman (knee) sitting this one out, it was up to McKinnon and Jeff Wilson Jr. to carry the load for the 49ers'. Despite the 17 touches, McKinnon was only able to produce 77 total yards and if it weren't for his 10-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, it was otherwise a lackluster showing. Head coach Kyle Shanahan did say after the game that McKinnon did suffer an injury to his ribs during the fourth quarter but the severity is not yet known. He should be considered questionable for the teams Week 4 game against the Eagles and if he were to sit, Wilson Jr. would likely see a hefty workload if Mostert is unable to return.

Nick Folk converted 3-of-3 field goals and 3-of-4 PATs in the Patriots' Week 3 victory over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Folk isn't exactly inspiring confidence in his abilities right now. He has now missed a kick in every game this year. Fantasy managers are encouraged to look elsewhere for a kicker.

Sam Sloman was able to knock down 1-of-2 field goal attempts while drilling all three of his extra point attempts in the Rams' 32-35 Week 3 defeat to the Bills'.

Fantasy Impact: Sloman has now connected on 4-of-6 field goal attempts on the year and should continue to see plenty of opportunities in this elite Rams' offense. He will be on the streaming radar for their matchup against the Giants in Week 4.

The New England Patriots D/ST scored a touchdown for the second straight week as the team took down the Raiders 36-20 in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: New England recovered three fumbles, registered two sacks, and recorded a safety in a very useful fantasy day. Fantasy managers are encouraged to use a streamer for next week's matchup versus the Chiefs, however.

Ryan Izzo failed to catch his only target in the Patriots' Week 3 win over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Izzo now has three receptions through three weeks. He isn't a fantasy option this year.

The Los Angeles D/ST gave up five touchdowns to Josh Allen en route to 375 yards of total offense during their 32-35 defeat in Week 3. They were able to rack up four sacks and force the Bills' into two turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: Although the Rams were able to force two turnovers, they really struggled to slow down Josh Allen and the Bills' offense on Sunday. Despite the four sacks, they constantly gave up chunk gains and committed an awful pass interference that allowed the Bills' to win the game. This was a difficult matchup against the red hot Bills' but things should get much easier against the 0-3 Giants in Week 4. The Rams' D/ST will be a top-10 option by merit.

Damiere Byrd caught 3-of-3 targets for 27 scoreless yards in the Patriots' 36-20 Week 3 win over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Byrd wasn't as involved as he was in Week 2 against the Seahawks (6-for-72) but then again none of the New England receivers were. The Patriots were using the running game to control their matchup against the Raiders. Byrd could offer single-game DFS appeal in a potential Week 4 shootout versus the Chiefs.

Gerald Everett hauled in all two of his targets for 34 yards during the Rams' 32-35 loss to the Bills' on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Everett matched fellow tight end Tyler Higbee in both catches and targets in this one, though he is clearly the sixth option in this passing game at best. He will continue to operate behind Higbee during the Rams' matchup against the Giants in Week 4 and would only be on the fantasy radar due to injury.

Jared Cook is listed as questionable to return to the Saints' Week 3 game against the Packers. (Source: Caroline Gonzo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cook was limping as he went into the locker room. The Saints will likely update his status after the game if he doesn't return. Cook caught two passes for 21 yards before exiting.
