Football Morning in America

Peter King reviews the biggest NFL storylines following an eventful Week 3 in Football Morning in America.

Latest Player News

All Player News
  • LAR Tight End #89
    Higbee was set to be a free agent at the end of this season, but will now with the team through at least 2026. The 30-year-old tight end is in the middle of his eighth NFL season and has a receiving line of 11-132-0 through three games. Higbee is receiving $17 million in guaranteed money on his new extension, and can earn up to $30.5 million.
  • CIN Quarterback #9
    Burrow was a full participant in practice throughout the week. Though he’s likely playing at less than full strength, things do appear to be trending in the right direction for Burrow. He remains in the QB1 mix in a great matchup versus a weak Tennessee second.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #16
    Titans head coach Mike Vrabel told reporters Burks’ knee issue is new, meaning it is not related to the LCL sprain he suffered in training camp. The absence of Burks should free up a few more targets for De’Andre Hopkins and Chig Okonkwo in Week 4. Burks has yet to catch more than three passes or score in a game this year. Fantasy managers who need a FLEX option for Sunday can cut Burks, though his upside later in the year makes him a hold for teams that can afford the roster spot.
  • TEN Tackle #77
    Skoronski has been out for two weeks because of the appendectomy and will miss at least one more game because of the issue. With Ryan Tannehill’s mobility declining in his age-35 season, the loss of a starting lineman is a notable issue for the Titans. Expect the Bengals to get to him multiple times in Week 4.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #18
    Philips is looking to return from an MCL injury suffered in the preseaon that landed him on short-term injured reserve to start the season. The second-year slot receiver would be eligible to return in Week 5 if he’s healthy enough, but he may still be a short way off from returning. Philips surprised everyone in Week 1 of last season when he caught eight passes for 66 yards in his NFL debut, but ultimately saw his season cut short to injury. He could turn into a preferred target of Ryan Tannehill once he’s fully returned and may have some WR4 upside for people in deeper leagues.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #16
    Burks has been limited in practice because of a knee issue this week. The second-year receiver suffered a knee injury in training camp but was past the issue by Week 1. His current knee injury is likely an extension of the LCL sprain he sustained in camp. At best, Burks will get in a light practice session on Friday. It’s possible he doesn’t practice and is unable to suit up on Sunday.
  • CLE Quarterback #4
    Watson reportedly didn’t offer up too much when throwing on Friday in front of beat writers, but the veteran quarterback believes he’ll be good to go come Sunday. Despite this quote, we’re assuming Watson will be a true game-time call when it comes time for warmups. If he’s unable to go, rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson will start in his place, and could make for an exciting one-week spot start. DTR is best left on the bench in 1QB leagues, but has a chance to offer significant upside in 2QB/superflex leagues thanks to his mobility.
  • LV Defensive End #55
    His court date was set for December 4th. Jones has been away from the team since the start of the season and was placed on the non-football illness list last week. Jones has made multiple posts on social media that took shots at Raiders owner Mark Davis and head coach Josh McDaniel. It’s unlikely he takes the field for Las Vegas or any other team this year.
  • LV Quarterback #10
    Garoppolo could still clear protocol in time for Sunday’s Week 4 contest against the Chargers. The veteran signal-caller logged a limited session on Thursday, and will likely be a limited participant in Friday’s practice as well — although we’ll know for certain, soon. If Garoppolo doesn’t go, veteran Brian Hoyer is expected to start for the Raiders. Hoyer has spent years in Josh McDaniel’s offense but is just days shy of his 38th birthday, and hasn’t led a team to a win since his 2016 season with the Bears where he won exactly one game in five starts.
  • CAR Running Back #6
    Sanders was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday because of a groin issue, but head coach Frank Reich said he’s “optimistic” Sanders will be able to play this week. He previously dealt with a groin injury in the preseason. It’s possible that the injury resurfaced and is now causing him issues. If he can’t go, Chuba Hubbard would likely see the bulk of Carolina’s touches at running back. He would rank as an RB2 versus the Vikings.
