Date Player
9/24/2017 ArDarius Stewart, NYJ, WR
ArDarius Stewart had one reception for 24 yards Sunday in the New York Jets' 20-6 win over the Miami Dolphins.
9/24/2017 Matt Forte, NYJ, RB
Matt Forte ran for 25 yards on eight carries Sunday in the New York Jets' 20-6 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Analysis: There was a Matt Forte sighting in New Jersey, yet he still does not have any fantasy value at the moment.
9/24/2017 Kelvin Benjamin, Car, WR
Benjamin has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Saints after having his knee bent backward on a catch.

Analysis: Benjamin came in with a team-high 102 yards on seven receptions in the first two games.
9/24/2017 Alex Collins, Bal, RB
Alex Collins ran for 82 yards on nine carries Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Analysis: Collins is worth a look in deep fantasy leagues after a solid two-week effort.
9/24/2017 Marqise Lee, Jax, WR
Marqise Lee had four receptions for 65 yards Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 44-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Analysis: He has 141 yards on 11 catches in the last two weeks and is currently the best fantasy receiving option for Jacksonville.
9/24/2017 Benjamin Watson, Bal, TE
Benjamin Watson had three receptions for 12 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
9/23/2017 Jason Verrett, LAC, CB
Verrett will undergo season-ending knee surgery.

Analysis: Verrett tore his ACL last year but was expected to team with Casey Hayward this season to form one of the league's best cornerback duos. Instead, undrafted second-year player Trevor Williams will continue to start in his place.
9/22/2017 Robbie Gould, SF, K
Robbie Gould converted two of two field-goal attempts Thursday as the San Francisco 49ers lost to the Los Angeles Rams 41-39. He made kicks of 36 and 48 yards. Gould tacked on three PATs, but also missed one.

Analysis: Gould's PAT miss was a big one, as it forced the 49ers to unsuccessfully go for two points after pulling within 41-39 with 2:13 to go. On a positive note, the veteran kicker is 6 for 6 on field goal tries through his first three games with San Francisco.
9/22/2017 Trent Taylor, SF, WR
Trent Taylor had three receptions for 32 yards and one touchdown Thursday in the San Francisco 49ers' 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: Taylor has some Cole Beasley-like upside as the 49ers' primary slot receiver. San Francisco's passing game is still mostly a mess, though, so the rookie isn't anything more than a player to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
9/22/2017 George Kittle, SF, TE
George Kittle had one reception for eight yards Thursday in the San Francisco 49ers' 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: Kittle has managed just eight catches totaling 48 yards through his first three NFL games. The rookie may still be worth monitoring in fantasy leagues, as he's been getting a lot of snaps and the 49ers don't have many quality pass-catching options behind Pierre Garcon.
9/22/2017 Garrett Celek, SF, TE
Garrett Celek had one reception for one yard and one touchdown Thursday in the San Francisco 49ers' 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
9/22/2017 Pierre Garcon, SF, WR
Pierre Garcon had seven receptions for 142 yards Thursday in the San Francisco 49ers' 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: Garcon played like a man among boys, ripping off huge chunks of yards after the catch en route to his highest single-game yardage total since 2013. With the 49ers lacking any consistent complementary receivers, the physical wideout should remain a target monster going forward.
9/22/2017 Cooper Kupp, LAR, WR
Cooper Kupp had two receptions for 17 yards Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Analysis: Kupp led the Rams in targets through the first two weeks but took a back seat to Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods in this one, having just two balls thrown his way. The rookie's fantasy prospects are trending downward after beginning his career with a six-catch, 76-yard output that included a touchdown.
9/22/2017 Tyler Higbee, LAR, TE
Tyler Higbee had one reception for four yards Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
9/22/2017 Sammy Watkins, LAR, WR
Sammy Watkins had six receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers, but left the game in the fourth quarter and was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Analysis: It'd be a blow for both the Rams and Watkins' owners if he's forced to miss any time, as he was much more of a factor on this night after opening the season with two quiet games. The 2014 No. 4 overall pick's long-term fantasy prognosis is looking very bright, though, provided he's able to stay healthy.
9/22/2017 Tavon Austin, LAR, WR
Tavon Austin had zero receptions for zero yards Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added three rushes for 14 yards.

Analysis: Austin left late in the game and was evaluated for a possible concussion that threatens his availability for next week's matchup at Dallas. That still shouldn't affect his fantasy outlook, as the first-round bust has had a minimal role in the Rams' new-look offense thus far.
9/22/2017 Robert Woods, LAR, WR
Robert Woods had six receptions for 108 yards Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Analysis: Mostly a possession receiver during his four years in Buffalo, Woods has emerged as more of a deep threat in L.A. by averaging 16.9 yards per catch through the team's first three games. The former USC standout may be worth a fantasy start if top wideout Sammy Watkins (concussion) isn't cleared for next week's showdown at Dallas.
9/22/2017 Marquise Goodwin, SF, WR
Marquise Goodwin had two receptions for 62 yards Thursday in the San Francisco 49ers' 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: Goodwin did make more of an impact in this game by hauling in a 50-yard deep ball from Brian Hoyer, but the speedster's ability to stretch the field is his lone appealing trait. He's recorded just eight catches for 109 yards through the first three weeks.
9/22/2017 Matt Breida, SF, RB
Matt Breida ran for nine yards on three carries Thursday in the San Francisco 49ers' 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He added three receptions for 20 yards.
9/22/2017 Todd Gurley II, LAR, RB
Todd Gurley II ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added five receptions for 36 yards and one touchdown.

Analysis: The Rams have an offense again under new coach Sean McVay, and Gurley is one of the main beneficiaries. The bruising back's six touchdowns through three weeks has already matched his entire 2016 total, and he's racked up 76 touches thus far while taking on a larger role as a receiver. With no threat to his snaps on the roster, he's back to elite status in the fantasy world.
