Giants wide receiver Damion Ratley caught one of his two targets for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Ratley had been buried on the depth chart in New York, but he is seeing some playing time with Sterling Shepard on injured reserve. Until he shows any kind of consistent production, though, he is not worth rostering in most fantasy formats.

Giants tight end Kaden Smith caught one of his two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Smith only has five catches for 29 yards through three games and is not worth rostering in any fantasy format unless there is an injury to Evan Engram.

The New York Giants D/ST allowed 36 points on 420 total yards in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The recorded two sacks but did not force any turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: Sunday's performance for the New York Giants D/ST was as bad as it gets because they were playing against a team missing several of its starters, including its quarterback and multiple skill position players. And with the Rams and Cowboys on tap for the next two weeks, things will not be getting any easier anytime soon.

The Seattle Seahawks D/ST recorded two sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble in a big win over the Cowboys in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: The Seahawks defense hunkered down on the last drive of the game, sacking Prescott twice and picking him off late to secure the win. This is not the Seattle defense of old however, as they have allowed almost 29 points per game. They'll take on Ryan Fitzpatrick next, whose gun-slinging mentality could prove fruitful for the Seahawks defense.

Giants kicker Graham Gano made all three of his field goal attempts in the team's Week 3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: All three of Gano's kicks came from more than 40 yards out, with one of them coming from more than 50 yards away, so he produced 13 points for fantasy owners in most formats. His value is ultimately tied to an inconsistent New York offense, but he has made six of his seven field goal attempts through the first three weeks.

Jason Myers didn't attempt a single field goal in Week 3, but went 4-for-4 on extra point attempts as the Seahawks beat the Cowboys 38-31.

Fantasy Impact: That's now consecutive weeks that Myers hasn't attempted a field goal. Through the first three weeks, Myers has attempted just one field goal, but has converted on all 14 of his extra points. Because the Seahawks are scoring so many touchdowns, Myers does not have the high ceiling that some other kickers might have. The Seahawks will travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins in Week 4.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott connected on all three of his field goal attempts on Sunday, with or of them being longer than 40 yards and another coming from more than 50 yards out. He also made both of his extra point tries.

Fantasy Impact: Elliott was also lining up for a game-winning 59-yard field goal in overtime, but a false start penalty pushed the team back and led to Doug Pederson's questionable decision to punt and accept that the game was going to end in a tie. Through three games, Elliot is 6-for-7 on field goal attempts and 5-for-5 on extra point tries.

Carlos Hyde had just four carries for 12 yards and one catch for 11 yards in a 38-31 win over the Cowboys in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Hyde has a total of 16 carries through the first three weeks, but has totaled just 57 yards on the ground. He's more of a true backup to Chris Carson than he is a complement, and likely needs a Carson injury to become fantasy relevant. Carson did leave the game late in the 4th quarter with a knee sprain, but early indications are that it's not considered to be significant.

The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST allowed 23 points on 304 total yards while recording eight sacks in the team's Week 3 tie with the Cincinnati Bengals. They did not force a turnover.

Fantasy Impact: While the eight sacks were double the unit's output through their first two games, they have still yet to force a turnover on defense this season. They recovered one fumble on a punt return in Week 2 against the Rams but have otherwise not intercepted any passes or recovered any fumbles on defense. With upcoming matchups against the 49ers, Steelers, and Ravens, it may be best to leave this unit on the bench in fantasy.

Tyler Bass converted all five of his PATs in the Bills' 35-32 Week 3 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Buffalo's offense has been hyper efficient in the red zone this year, which has limited Bass' opportunities. Fantasy managers can probably do better when looking for a kicker, though Bass isn't necessarily a bad option.

The Buffalo Bills D/ST recorded two turnovers and two sacks in the team's thrilling 35-32 Week 3 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Buffalo was up 28-3 in this one and appeared to be in complete control. A second half surge by Jared Goff and the Rams made things interesting, however. Buffalo still won the game but it wasn't a productive fantasy day for their defense. They have an easier matchup in Week 4 against the Raiders.

John Brown didn't catch either of his two targets in the Bills' 35-32 Week 3 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: It was announced that Brown was battling a calf injury in the second half and he never returned. It'll be important to monitor his practice reports throughout the week.

Cole Beasley totaled 100 receiving yards on six receptions in the Bills' 35-32 Week 3 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Beasley saw even more looks than usual with John Brown (calf) battling an injury. The slot receiver now has 15 catches through three games and is a nice floor-play in short-slate DFS tournaments. Beasley will be looking to find the end zone for the first time in Week 4 against the Raiders.

Tyler Kroft caught 4-of-5 targets for 24 yards and two touchdowns in the Bills' thrilling 35-32 Week 3 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Kroft saw the opportunity since Dawson Knox didn't play. One of his touchdowns was the game winner with just seconds remaining. Still, he isn't someone to consider for fantasy, no matter the league size.

Gabriel Davis caught 4-of-4 targets for 81 yards in the Bills' 35-32 Week 3 victory over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: It's easily the best game of the season so far for Davis. Buffalo is playing up-tempo, which is helping the fantasy box scores of all their skill players. Davis received some extra run in this one with John Brown battling a calf injury. He isn't on the redraft fantasy radar moving forward even with the nice performance. The Raiders are next.

Sam Ficken converted his only PAT try in the Jets' 36-7 Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets offense is broken right now. Ficken isn't on the fantasy radar.

The New York Jets D/ST failed to record a single sack or turnover in the team's 36-7 Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Technically the defense gave up just 22 points as Sam Darnold threw two pick-sixes in this one. You obviously aren't starting the Jets D/ST in fantasy anytime soon, even against Jeff Driskel and the Broncos in Week 4.

Kalen Ballage caught 5-of-5 targets for 44 yards in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: He also ran twice for eight yards. Frank Gore led the team in touches among running back with 16. Ballage isn't on the fantsay radar heading into Week 4.

Jacob Hollister caught 1-of-2 targets for one yard and a touchdown in a 38-31 win over the Cowboys in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Hollister is firmly entrenched behind Greg Olsen and Will Dissly in the pecking order in Seattle. He came in on a heavy package at the goal line and caught a pass for a touchdown from Russell Wilson. Even with scoring a touchdown in Week 3, Hollister is best left on the waiver wire moving forward.

Chris Hogan didn't record a catch in the Jets' 36-7 Week 3 loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: He received three targets. It turns out that Braxton Berrios is actually the Jets' No. 1 wideout. Huh. No Jets pass catcher is worth starting in fantasy against the Broncos this Thursday night.
