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
  • BAL Running Back #43
    Hill missed Week 3’s matchup against the Colts with a turf toe injury, but made his return to the practice field on Thursday. We’ll see if he’s able to log another session on Friday to close out the week, but it sounds like there’s at least a chance Hill could play on Sunday against the Browns. If he does give it a go, Hill is nothing more than a fringe RB3 in a backfield chock full of replacement-level backs.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #7
    Bateman and Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) have missed both practices the open the week, potentially leaving the Ravens thin at receiver for Week 4. They have one practice to go on Friday, so we’ll see if things change then, but it’s possible the Ravens will be banking on Zay Flowers, Devin Duvernay, and Nelson Agholor as their top three receivers in Week 4.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #3
    An ankle injury once downplayed by head coach John Harbaugh how now led to five missed practices and one missed game. Beckham has one day left to log a practice before Week 4’s matchup against the Browns, but will be seriously questionable if he’s not able to get on the field — assuming he isn’t ruled out before the weekend. If he’s active against the Browns, OBJ would be hard to trust as anything more than a fringe WR3/WR4 .
  • CIN Tight End #84
    That’s two-straight missed practices for Smith, who was injured last last week and ultimately missed the team’s Week 3 win over the Rams on Monday. The veteran tight end has caught just five passes for 27 yards this season, and wouldn’t be on the fantasy radar in Week 4 even if he were active. Drew Sample would draw the start in Week 4 against the Titans if Smith is unable to go.
  • ARI Wide Receiver #4
    As Cardinals beat writer Darren Urban points out in his article, Moore has lined up 13 times as a running back this season after lining up 46 times in the backfield over the previous two seasons. The versatile receiver broke free on a 45-yard run out of the backfield during Week 3’s win over the Cowboys, and could be in line for more rush attempts under first year head coach Jonathan Gannon. For his career, Moore has rushed 29 times for 147 yards and one touchdown, averaging a solid 4.7 YPC. A growing role out of the backfield could give Moore some upside as a fantasy asset, but he’s not yet on the fantasy radar as outside of deep leagues for Week 4.
  • IND Quarterback #5
    Richardson was back on the field Thursday after logging a full practice on Wednesday, and just needs to be cleared by an independent neurologist to have a chance to play in Week 4 against the Rams. Richardson getting cleared in time for Sunday’s matchup against the Rams feels like a foregone conclusion, but we’ll know the official word soon. If he’s active, Richardson will be a fringe QB1 against a Rams defense that has allowed a mere 12.6 fantasy points per game to opposing QBs through three weeks.
  • MIA Wide Receiver #17
    Waddle practiced in full on Wednesday, suggesting he was nearing the end of his time in concussion protocol. The Dolphins No. 2 receiver was sidelined for the team’s 70-20 win over the Broncos last week, but should be ready to go for a divisional showdown against the Bills in what marks one of the bigger games on the young season. Waddle will have high end WR2 upside in a game that projects to be a shootout between two of the league’s best offenses.
  • SEA Linebacker #59
    Rhattigan was elevated from the practice squad each of the last three weeks, leaving the Seahawks with a decision to make heading into this week. A player can’t be elevated from the practice squad to play more than three times, so the Seahawks opted to sign the special teamer to the active roster for the time being. Rhattigan has appeared in 22 games for the Seahawks since joining the team as a UDFA out of Army in 2021.
  • NYG Running Back #26
    With the Giants not playing until Monday night, Thursday marks the team’s first practice of the week. Barkley will presumably practice in a limited capacity, as the team looks to evaluate his status ahead of Week 4’s matchup against the Seahawks. We may not know more on his official status until closer to game day, so these practices will be something to monitor throughout the week. If Barkley is unable to go, Matt Breida could have some deep flex appeal, but it’s worth noting he had only seven touches in Week 3.
  • NO Quarterback #4
    Speaking with media, Carr said of his injury, “I do anything and everything I can with my rehab, everything with the trainers, I’m going to do everything I can to be out there with my guys and if I can play, I’ll play.” Carr’s injury is to his throwing shoulder, so until he can function enough to make all of the throws, we’d expect him to be sidelined in favor of Jameis Winston. Carr is considered week-to-week with his injury, and could be sidelined beyond Week 4’s matchup against the Bucccaneers.
