Week Three is upon us with another full slate of games. This week, we see the return of Eagles QB Carson Wentz and Packers RB Aaron Jones. Also, RBs like LeSean McCoy, Leonard Fournette, Jay Ajayi and Dalvin Cook are out. 

 

(7:23PM) The late games are drawing to an end. Cardinals QB Josh Rosen threw an interception and then took a last-second sack to seal the win for the Bears, 14-10. The Rams won the "Battle of LA" 35-23 and Seattle held on to defeat the Cowboys 24-13. Enjoy the final two games of the week and good luck in all of your fantasy contests. We'll be back next week for Week Four, our first week with byes, with Carolina and Washington earning a rest after their respective wins this week. 

 

(7:09PM) The Bears have just taken the lead over Arizona on a fourth-quarter field goal and rookie QB Josh Rosen is preparing to make his debut. 

 

(7:07PM) INJURY: The Sunday night game pits the Lions against the Patriots and WR Josh Gordon is listed as inactive for his first game with the Patriots. 

 

(7:04PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Cowboys have found the end zone as QB Dak Prescott hit WR Tavon Austin for a three-yard score to cut the lead to 24-13. 

 

(6:59PM) INJURY: The Bears have listed WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) as doubtful to return. The good news is that he is standing on the sidelines and is not wearing any type of sling. 

 

(6:43PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Seahawks are continuing their dominant performance against Dallas with their latest score coming on a five-yard score from RB Chris Carson. The lead 24-6 early in the final quarter. Carson has 81 yards on 23 carries in the game. 

 

(6:42PM) INJURY: Bears rookie WR Anthony Miller is being helped to the sideline medical tent with officials holding his arm stable. 

 

(6:26PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Bears are playing catch up and have their first touchdown of the day on a one-yard touchdown run by RB Jordan Howard. The Cardinals lead 14-10 midway through the second quarter. Howard has struggled and has been out-gained by backup RB Tarik Cohen on the ground. 

 

(6:11PM) The top-scoring FF WRs for Week Three, so far...

WR1- Calvin Ridley

WR2- Jordy Nelson

WR3- Tyler Boyd

WR4- Adam Thielen

WR5- Robert Woods

 

(6:01PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Chargers are hanging around as they've scored on the second touchdown of the day for WR Mike Williams, this time a 20-yarder that closed the gap to eight points. Williams leads the Chargers with two receptions for 62 yards. 

 

(5:52PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Rams are at it again. WR Cooper Kupp has become known as a red zone threat but typically lacks big-play upside. This time, QB Jared Goff found Kupp, who broke multiple tackles on his way to a 53-yard touchdown. That gives the Rams a 28-13 lead early in the third quarter. 

 

(5:43PM) TOUCHDOWN: Seattle QB Russell Wilson just hit WR Tyler Lockett over the top for a huge 52-yard score to extend their lead to 14-3 with halftime nearing. Wilson now has 131 yards and two touchdowns, while Lockett has caught all four of his targets for 77 yards. 

 

(5:27PM) The top-scoring FF RBs for Week Three, so far...

RB1- Alvin Kamara

RB2- Carlos Hyde

RB3- Adrian Peterson

RB4- Saquon Barkley

RB5- Christian McCaffrey

 

(5:20PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Seahawks have broken the scoreless tie on a touchdown pass from QB Russell Wilson to WR Jaron Brown. 

 

(5:18PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Chargers got a much-needed touchdown to hang in the game with the Rams. RB Melvin Gordon ended the long drive with an 11-yard score to make it a 21-13 game late in the first half. Gordon has 31 total yards in the game. 

 

(5:15PM) INJURY: The Rams have a comfortable 21-6 lead late in the first half, but have been hit by injuries. They've already lost their punter after the Chargers blocked a punt for a touchdown and now DB Marcus Peters left the game with what is feared to be a major leg injury. 

 

(5:13PM) INJURY: Giants TE Evan Engram left the game with a first-half knee injury and is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow. He was also spotted in a heavy-duty brace following the game. More bad injury news. 

 

(5:12PM) The top-scoring FF QBs for Week Three, so far...

QB1- Drew Brees

QB2- Matt Ryan

QB3- Cam Newton

QB4- Josh Allen

QB5- Ryan Tannehill

 

(4:54PM) TOUCHDOWN: If the Bills can do it, why not the Cardinals? Arizona is up 14-0 after QB Sam Bradford hit a wide open RB David Johnson in the end zone for a 21-yard score. 

 

(4:47PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Rans added to their lead thanks to a touchdown pass from QB Jared Goff to WR Robert Woods, covering three yards. Woods already has five receptions for 52 yards and the score. 

 

(4:44PM) Here are the finals from all 1:00PM games...

Bills 37, Vikings 6

Titans 9, Jaguars 6

Redskins 31, Packers 17

Ravens 27, Broncos 14

Saints 43, Falcons 37

Dolphins 28, Raiders 20

Panthers 31, Bengals 21

Eagles 20, Colts 16

Chiefs 38, 49ers 27

Giants 27, Texans 22

 

(4:36PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Saints made sure this game wouldn't end in a tie. RB Alvin Kamara extended the ball to the goal line to score the game-winning touchdown in overtime to end the game. After that play was overturned, QB Drew Brees got the push into the end zone to win the game. 

 

(4:33PM) INJURY: More on the knee injury to 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo as his HC Kyle Shanahan confirms the team does fear it is a season-ending ACL injury. Garoppolo will have a Monday MRI to confirm the bad news. 

 

(4:32PM) TOUCHDOWN: Chargers QB Philip Rivers dropped a deep bomb, hauled in by WR Mike Williams for a 42-yard score. Williams was slow to get up and needed help to get to the sidelines. 

 

(4:31PM) INJURY: Bengals WR AJ Green suggested following the game that his injury the put him out of the game was not serious and he should be fine for Week Four. We've heard that before. 

 

(4:30PM) TOUCHDOWN: It's a great day for bad teams! Arizona has the early lead over the Bears on a 35-yard touchdown pass from QB Sam Bradford to TE Ricky Seals-Jones. Rookie WR Christian Kirk also had a 30-yard gainer on the drive. 

 

(4:23PM) TOUCHDOWN: The late afternoon games are underway and the Rams have drawn first blood in the battle of LA. After it appeared WR Brandin Cooks had scored, it was overturned. RB Todd Gurley finished off the drive with a one-yard score to give the Rams the lead. 

 

(4:18PM) INJURY: The Chiefs held on to get the 38-27 win over the 49ers and even worse news is that QB Jimmy Garoopolo was quickly ruled out as he headed to the locker room. We could be looking at a long-term injury concern. 

 

(4:098PM) TOUCHDOWN: Saints QB Drew Brees just scored an ugly but effective seven-yard touchdown to tie the game at 37 points with just over one minute remaining. 

 

(4:07PM) INJURY: It looks like 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is actually dealing with a non-contact knee injury. Not good news. He is now being carted back to the locker room. 

 

(4:01PM) INJURY: The 49ers were desperately trying to come back, down 14 points with under six minutes remaining. QB Jimmy Garoppolo carried the ball down the sidelines and took a huge hit, immediately going down in pain. It looks like a potential shoulder injury. Backup CJ Beathard is now in the game. 

 

(3:59PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Texans ran out of time, but they scored one final touchdown before the final whistle. QB Deshaun Watson connected with RB Lamar Miller for a four-yard score before losing 27-22 to the Giants. 

 

(3:58PM) TOUCHDOWN: After trailing early, the Dolphins are running away with this one. They now lead 27-17 and the latest score came on a short pass to WR Albert Wilson that he turned into a 74-yard touchdown. 

 

(3:56PM) The Titans have pulled off a surprise win in Jacksonville by a final of 9-6. 

 

(3:52PM) TOUCHDOWN: A nightmare day for the Vikings got slightly better as QB Kirk Cousins hit TE Kyle Rudolph from four yards out for the score, avoiding the shutout. Buffalo leads 27-7

 

(3:47PM) TOUCHDOWN: Philly Philly is rubbing off. The Dolphins just ran a similar play that resulted in WR Albert Wilson throwing a 52-yard touchdown pass to WR Jakeem Grant, his second score of the day. Grant now has two grabs for 70 yards and two scores on the day. 

 

(3:44PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Giants may have just sealed the game with a fourth quarter touchdown. QB Eli Manning hit WR Sterling Shepard for a seven-yard score, extending the lead over Houston to 12 points with under three minutes remaining. 

 

(3:42PM) TOUCHDOWN: The back and forth contest between the Falcons and Saints continues as QB Drew Brees connected on a fourth-down pass to FB Zach Line for the go-ahead score. They now lead the Falcons 30-29 with more than ten minutes remaining. 

 

(3:39PM) The breakout of Bengals third-year WR Tyler Boyd continues. He just caught a huge 49-yarder and the Bengals are now in the red zone. Boyd is up to 6/132/1 for the game. 

 

(3:33PM) TOUCHDOWN: Atlanta has regained the league and scored a touchdown on a five-yard grab by RB Tevin Coleman, who barely got into the end zone. Coleman has just 40 total yards on the day, but the touchdown will help his fantasy bottom line. 

 

(3:28PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Texans cut the Giants lead to five points thanks to the inevitable touchdown catch from WR Will Fuller. Fuller has four receptions for 85 yards and a score, continuing the streak of scoring in each game he plays with QB Deshaun Watson. 

 

(3:26PM) TOUCHDOWN: Many were hoping for some garbage time scoring from the 49ers, but probably didn't expect that to come from RB Alfred Morris. Morris just finished off a drive with a three-yard score and then completed a successful two-point conversion. The lead is cut to 11 points late in the third quarter. 

 

(3:23PM) We wanted to watch the season debut of Packers RB Aaron Jones and he's played well in a tough spot, leading the team with 42 yards on six carries. 

 

(3:19PM) There hasn't been much to see in the Titans/Jaguars contest. No player has more than 40 receiving yards on either side and QB Marcus Mariota leads the Titans in rushing (36 yards.)

 

(3:17PM) In the biggest surprise of the day, the Vikings continue to trail Buffalo 27-0 late in the third quarter. QB Kirk Cousins has just 75 yards, while RB Latavius Murray has totaled seven pitiful yards after the Vikes fell behind early. WRs Adam Thielen (6/39) and Stefon Diggs (3/10) have also disappointed. 

 

(3:14PM) TOUCHDOWN: Miami QB Ryan Tannehill hit speedy WR Jakeem Grant for an 18-yard score to bring the Dolphins to within three points. A 36-yard catch by WR DeVante Parker keyed the scoring drive in his first game back on the field. 

 

(3:12PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Bengals are staying in the game and RB Giovani Bernard is back on the field. Bengals QB Andy Dalton found WR Tyler Boyd for a 27-yard score to cut the lead to one score. 

 

(3:06PM) TOUCHDOWN: The earlier Raiders touchdown by TE Jared Cook was overturned, so they gave it to veteran RB Marshawn Lynch who punched it in for the score. Lynch has 46 yards on 15 carries. 

 

(3:05PM) INJURY: This is good but unexpected news. After suffering the non-contact knee injury earlier in the game, RB Matt Breida is back in the game for the 49ers. 

 

(3:04PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Packers have closed the gap to 11 points after a two-yard touchdown pass from QB Aaron Rodgers to WR Davante Adams. Rodgers now has 191 passing yards and two scores, while Adams is up to 5/28/1 in the game. 

 

(3:02PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Raiders have extended their improbable lead in Miami thanks to a touchdown reception for TE Jared Cook, coming on a four-yard pass from QB Derek Carr. Cook is up to 4/29/1 on the day. 

 

(3:00PM) TOUCHDOWN: The game's top goal line back is at it again as Panthers QB Cam Newton scored from five yards out, giving his team a 28-14 lead midway through the third quarter. 

 

(2:52PM) TOUCHDOWN: For the third time today, Falcons rookie WR Calvin Ridley has scored. This time, QB Matt Ryan connected from nine yards out, giving Ridley a 6/138/3 line for the day. He's nearly a lock to finish as the top-scoring WR with those numbers. 

 

(2:47PM) INJURY: Some good news for the Bengals. AJ Green's injury is being called a groin issue but his return is probable. 

 

(2:44PM) INJURY: The second-half is not starting well for the Bengals. WR AJ Green and RB Giovani Bernard are both on the sidelines with injuries as Cincy continues to trail 21-14 against the Panthers. 

 

(2:38PM) Many games are at the half, so let's look at the top fantasy producers from the day so far...

QB- Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Cam Newton

RB- Adrian Peterson, Alvin Kamara, Kareem Hunt

WR- Calvin Ridley, Jordy Nelson, Geronimo Allison

TE- Travis Kelce, Dallas Goedert, Jordan Reed

 

(2:34PM) TOUCHDOWN: Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes just threw his third touchdown of the game, hitting WR Sammy Watkins who wove through the defense to get the 12-yard score. We missed an earlier score from Mahomes to TE Demetrius Harris. The QB now has 252 passing yards and three scores...in the first half. 

 

(2:28PM) TOUCHDOWN: Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is back into the end zone, powering through the line to give his team a 28-3 halftime lead over the Packers. 

 

(2:21PM) The Broncos and Ravens were penalized for some action after the whistle, which ultimately resulted in rookie RB Phillip Lindsay being ejected for throwing a punch. He's done for the day and finishes with 20 rushing yards. 

 

(2:19PM) INJURY: 49ers RB Matt Breida, the league's leading rusher, has gone down with a non-contact knee injury. I don't have to tell you that this doesn't look good. We'll see plenty of veteran Alfred Morris the rest of the day. 

 

(2:18PM) TOUCHDOWN: With a big deficit to overcome, expect the Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers to be throwing the ball a lot the rest of the day. It begins with Rodgers 64-yard bomb to WR Geronimo Allison to cut the lead to 21-10. 

 

(2:16PM) TOUCHDOWN: The surprising lead continues to grow for the Giants, who now lead the Texans 20-3 after a scoring grab by TE Rhett Ellison from QB Eli Manning, spanning 16 yards. 

 

(2:14PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Panthers are back in the lead thanks to a 24-yard hookup between QB Cam Newton and RB CJ Anderson. Carolina leads 21-14. Newton now has 118 passing yards with two touchdowns along with another score on the ground. 

 

(2:13PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Redskins are on the board again and are threatening to run the Packers out of the building. QB Alex Smith connected with WR Jamison Crowder for a nine-yard score to give the Skins a 21-3 lead. 

 

(2:09PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Bengals have tied things up at 14 on a one-yard pass from QB Andy Dalton to TE CJ Uzomah

 

(2:06PM) INJURY: The Giants have now ruled out TE Evan Engram for the day with a knee injury. The quick decision is a bad sign for him moving forward. 

 

(2:04PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Ravens had to ask for a review, but it went their way and the 12-yard catch and run by RB Buck Allen was ruled a touchdown. The Ravens now have a 17-14 lead and Allen has 16 total yards on three touches. 

 

(2:00PM) INJURY: Giants TE Evan Engram was tackled low and is now in the blue sideline medical tent. More on this injury as it is reported. 

 

(1:57PM) TOUCHDOWN: WOW! Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was nearly sacked multiple times, spinning away from danger to find WR Chris Conley in the back of the end zone. KC leads the Niners 21-7. San Francisco earlier scored on a 35-yard pass from QB Jimmy Garoppolo to RB Kyle Juszczyk.

 

(1:55PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Bills went for it on fourth down and QB Josh Allen converted with a dive over the line for the score, giving the Bills a 24-0 lead. 

 

(1:52PM) The day is young, but the story of the early slate of games is Bills rookie QB Josh Allen, who has thrown for 120 yards and a touchdown, rushed for 22 yards and a score, along with hurdling the Vikings defender Anthony Barr. 

 

(1:50PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Panthers have scored again, this time on a four-yard pass from QB Cam Newton to WR Devin Funchess, who already has 3/47/1 for the game. 

 

(1:43PM) Packers second-year RB Aaron Jones is getting some playing time and now has two carries for 18 yards. The Packers may not get to see much of their running game today, already trailing 14-0.  

 

(1:39PM) TOUCHDOWN: Redskins veteran RB Adrian Peterson struggled last week, but seems to be back on track today. He has 22 yards on six early carries and just scored from two yards out on the latest carry. Washington leads the Packers 14-0. 

 

(1:37PM) TOUCHDOWN: In case you were worried about Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, don't. Hunt just scored his second rushing touchdown of the game but has just nine rushing yards on four carries. With an early 14-0 lead, Hunt could be in the for a big workload today. 

 

(1:36PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Colts are on the board, tying the game against the Eagles. QB Andrew Luck hit WR Ryan Grant on a fade in the back corner of the end zone from five yards away. Luck has completed seven of his ten pass attempts, but for only 24 total yards. 

 

(1:33PM) TOUCHDOWN: We might be witnessing the emergence of rookie WR Calvin Ridley, who caught his first career touchdown last week. QB Matt Ryan hit Ridley for an 18-yarder to get into the red zone and then went back to him for a 15-yard score. 

 

(1:30PM) INJURY: In a revenge game for Titans QB Blaine Gabbert, we may not get to see him finish the game. Gabbert was hit had by the Jags defense and had to leave the game. He was relieved by QB Marcus Mariota, who was evidently not healthy enough to start but is active. The Titans lead 3-0 midway through the first. 

 

(1:28PM) TOUCHDOWN: What is happening? The Bills have looked like the worst team in football through two games now have a 17-0 lead in Minnesota. After a fumble by QB Kirk Cousins, the Bills had a short field and QB Josh Allen connected with a wide open TE Jason Croom for a 26-yard touchdown. 

 

(1:26PM) TOUCHDOWN: A pair of long runs from RB Christian McCaffrey put the Panthers in the red zone and QB Cam Newton found the paint from two yards out. McCaffrey now has 64 total yards. 

 

(1:25PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Broncos have taken the lead again on a 35-yard end around from WR Emmanuel Sanders. Denver leads 14-7 over the Ravens. 

 

(1:22PM) TOUCHDOWN: Look out! The Giants and QB Eli Manning have put together an early scoring drive. Manning was efficient, completing four of five passes and rookie RB Saquon Barkley finished off the drive with a 15-yard score. 

 

(1:21PM) This was not expected. After failing to make an impact in the first two games, veteran WR Jordy Nelson now has two long gains along with the earlier score. He just caught a 66-yarder to get the Raiders into the red zone. Nelson already has 3/139/1. 

 

(1:19PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Chiefs are on the board...no surprise. Maybe it is a surprise that QB Patrick Mahomes didn't throw for the score though. Instead, RB Kareem Hunt found the end zone for his first rushing score of the year, this one from one-yard away. KC leads SF 7-0. 

 

(1:16PM) TOUCHDOWN: With RB Joe Mixon out, veteran RB Giovani Bernard should see a lot of work today and he begins with a one-yard score to cap off an extended Bengals drive. 

 

(1:15PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Ravens have tied the game as rookie QB Lamar Jackson served as a decoy and RB Alex Collins powered the ball into the end zone from six yards away. 

 

(1:14PM) TOUCHDOWN: Welcome back! Eagles QB Carson Wentz threw his first touchdown since Week Fourteen of last season, hitting rookie TE Dallas Goedert for a 13-yard score. 

 

(1:11PM) TOUCHDOWN: For the first time this season, the Bills have a lead. QB Josh Allen ran and dove for the pilon, scoring from 10 yards out to take a surprising lead over the Vikings. 

 

(1:08PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Broncos blocked a Ravens punt which led to six-yard rushing score from rookie RB Royce Freeman. Denver leads Baltimore in the early going. 

 

(1:07PM) TOUCHDOWN: WR Paul Richardson has been the deep threat for the Redskins, but has had few opportunities. He got one early as QB Alex Smith found Richardson for a 46-yard score. They lead the Packers early. 

 

(1:06PM) TOUCHDOWN: QB Derek Carr hit WR Jordy Nelson for a 61-yard gain on the opening play and then went back to him for a 12-yard score to give the Raiders an early lead over Miami. 

 

(1:04PM) The week starts just like the past two with Saints QB Drew Brees hitting WR Michael Thomas for a 35-yard pass before RB Alvin Kamara broke off a pair of first-down runs. They're closing in on the red zone.
