Fantasy Football -- Week 3 rankings

Just like that, two weeks are in the books. Not exactly high-level football to date, let's be honest.

Then again, fantasy football owners should largely be happy with the overall running back depth this season.

RELATED: FIRST LOOK AT REDSKINS VS. RAIDERS

Sleepers including Buck Allen, Tarik Cohen and Chris Carson have emerged and several teams have multiple viable options to date. Jordan Howard and Ezekiel Elliott owners aren't exactly thrilled at the moment. Understood. Hang tight, especially the Elliott faction, though I didn't love the Cowboys offense overall entering this season now that teams had a chance for a longer look at the Dak Prescott-led attack.

Meanwhile, passing game struggles with the Bengals, Giants and Redskins are a tad concerning, though A.J. Green and Odell Beckham owners should resist trade offers from those attempting to buy low.

What's going on with Alex Smith and the Chiefs actually seems sustainable considering the playmakers available -- Kareem Hunt, Tyreke Hill, Travis Kelce -- while the Eagles' heavy pass-run imbalance gives Carson Wentz weekly QB1 consideration. 

RELATED: WEEK 2 NFL POWER RANKINGS

Those with high-end tight ends are on edge after a rough Week 2 saw Greg Olsen exit with a multi-week foot injury while Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Reed owners hope their guys won't miss time.

Let's get to the Week 3 rankings and note those higher -- Carson Wentz, Jay Ajayi, Buck Allen, Chris Thompson, Kelvin Benjamin, J.J. Nelson, Hunter Henry  -- and lower than normal. Check back for updates or hit me up on Twitter -- @benstandig -- with questions. ​

Josh Norman out against Eagles in Monday night matchup, plus full injury report

Josh Norman out against Eagles in Monday night matchup, plus full injury report

The Redskins will be without one of their top defenders when they take on the Eagles on Monday night.

Jay Gruden announced that CB Josh Norman is out for the second straight game with a broken rib. Norman was able to practice on a limited basis earlier this week but he did not practice today. Gruden said that the recovery from the injury just had not progressed to the point where the doctors would clear him to play.

Bashaud Breeland, the other starting cornerback, is listed as questionable with a knee injury he sustained last week against the 49ers. “He did a good job today,” said Gruden. “He’s looking better.”

MORE REDSKINS: MUST-SEE PHOTOS FROM REDSKINS 26, 49ERS 24

Gruden said that a final determination on Breeland’s status will be made on Sunday.

With Norman out, Quinton Dunbar, who did a good job filling in against the 49ers, will start. If both of the starters are sidelined, rookie Fabian Moreau will get the start opposite Dunbar.

Also listed as questionable are RB Rob Kelley (ankle), S Deshazor Everett (hamstring), S Stefan McClure (knee), and LB Mason Foster (shoulder).

RELATED: IN A MUDDLED NFC WHY NOT THE REDSKINS?

Kelley is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered against the Chiefs on Oct. 2 but he has looked good while practicing on a limited basis this week. If he can’t go it seems likely that Samaje Perine will start in his place.

It should be noted that the term “questionable” on an injury report means that it is “uncertain if the player will play”. Many say that means that there is at least a 50 percent chance that the player will be active for the game. So there are a lot of scenarios that could unfold with that designation.

Reserve offensive linemen Ty Nsekhe (core muscle) and Tyler Catalina (concussion) also have been declared out for Monday night.
