Terrance Williams WR DAL (7) 3 hours ago
Williams caught all four of his targets for 88 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.
Despite the solid numbers it wasn't a completely error-free game for Williams, as he fumbled at the end of a 47-yard reception to briefly give Chicago a spark of hope early in the third quarter. Dez Bryant is questionable at this point for Week 4 due to a knee injury, so Williams could find himself the Cowboys' top WR in San Francisco on Sunday, but he'll need to eliminate the mental mistakes if he wants to take full advantage of the opportunities that might come with that role.
Lance Dunbar RB DAL (7) 3 hours ago
Dunbar touched the ball only once Sunday against the Bears, but made it count by scoring on a one-yard touchdown run.
He isn't exactly a prototypical short yardage back, but the element of surprise (and a weak Chicago run defense) allowed Dunbar to find the end zone. With Ezekiel Elliott emerging as a workhorse back and Cole Beasley showing great chemistry out of the slot with quarterback Dak Prescott though, there won't be many looks left over for a player with Dunbar's skill set.
Alfred Morris RB DAL (7) 3 hours ago
Morris carried the ball five times for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's win over the Bears. He also caught his only target for two yards.
Ezekiel Elliott was busy running all over Chicago's defense for 140 yards, but Morris still found a way to be productive with his limited touches. As long as Elliott stays healthy though, Morris' value will be completely dependent on his ability to get into the end zone, making him a risky play.
QJared Cook TE GB (4) 4 hours ago
Cook has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
High ankle sprains often lead to multi-week absences, but it depends on the severity of the particular ailment. Cook is reportedly dealing with quite a bit of swelling, and he left Sunday's game on crutches while wearing a boot. It thus seems he's in serious danger of missing games, though he does have some additional time to recover as the Packers enter a Week 4 bye. Richard Rodgers will take on an expanded role if Cook isn't ready for Week 5 against the Giants.
Dwayne Washington RB DET (10) 4 hours ago
Washington has seemingly earned a true timeshare with Theo Riddick, ESPN.com reports.
Riddick started Sunday's loss to the Packers and outsnapped Washington 45-25, but given that Detroit was trailing by multiple scores for most of the contest, the rookie got a surprising amount of work. Washington finished with 10 carries for 38 yards and one reception for a loss of three, while Riddick managed just nine yards on 10 carries but caught seven passes for 39 yards. Riddick will likely continue to dominate the receiving portion of the workload, but Washington has a shot to emerge as the primary ball-carrier, particularly if the team is able to build some leads. Head coach Jim Caldwell also mentioned that Zech Zenner could enter the mix, though the second-year bruiser strictly played special teams in Sunday's loss.
QDez Bryant WR DAL (7) 4 hours ago
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he doesn't think Bryant (knee) ended up having an MRI, David Helman of the team's official website reports.
Jones phrased the statement oddly, suggesting Bryant might have actually had an MRI, or else may end up having one later. In any case, there's been no indication the wide receiver's injury is serious, as he played through the issue in Sunday's win over the Bears. It remains to be seen if Bryant will miss any practice time leading up to Sunday's favorable matchup with the 49ers.
Corey Graham DB BUF (10) 12 hours ago
Graham was all over the field during Sunday's win against the Cardinals, posting four tackles, a sack, three passes defensed, and an interception.
Graham hasn't missed a defensive snap this season. While his tackle totals -- 11 through three games -- are disappointing, Sunday's game shows just what he can do. While he sits just tied for 21st among safeties in standard IDP scoring, he figures to keep working his way up in the coming weeks, perhaps starting this week against the Patriots, a team that always seems to keep the Buffalo defense on the field.
Michael Thomas WR NO (5) 13 hours ago
Thomas caught seven passes (on 11 targets) for 71 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.
Thomas entered Monday's game with added opportunity in light of teammate Willie Snead's (toe) injury absence, and responded by scoring his first career touchdown with a three-yard catch during the second quarter. The former Ohio State standout's 11 targets and seven receptions both tied with tight end Coby Fleener for the Saints' team-lead Monday, when his numbers across the board marked the best outing of his young career. Even given the vast array of targets in New Orleans' offense, Thomas already appears to be one of the better rookie receiving options this season.
Brandon Coleman WR NO (5) 13 hours ago
Coleman caught seven passes (on eight targets) for 78 yards in Monday night's game against the Falcons.
Coleman's career-high catch total came with teammate Willie Snead (toe) sidelined Monday night, creating a void for Coleman to fill within the pass-heavy Saints offense. To his credit, Coleman took advantage of his opportunity, as he only allowed one pass thrown his way to fall incomplete. Although New Orleans boasts a bevy of pass-catching options when fully healthy, the physically-imposing Coleman's Week 3 performance should help his confidence to earn more looks going forward.
Coby Fleener TE NO (5) 13 hours ago
Fleener caught seven passes (on 11 targets) for a team-high 109 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.
Fleener appeared out of sorts during the first two weeks of this season, but broke through with a stellar display Monday night. New Orleans' offseason signing opened the scoring with a two-yard touchdown catch early on and never looked back, regularly finding space down the seam of Atlanta's defense. After leading all tight ends with 109 yards in Week 3, Fleener will now try to improve his consistency within the Saints' offense, where opportunities for him to make an impact should be abound.
