Jordan Poyer S BUF (11)
Tue 9/29/20 2:04 AM
Poyer posted 14 tackles during Sunday's win over the Rams.
The Los Angeles offense really got going in the second half and Poyer ended up getting in on much of the action. The eighth-year safety remains a top IDP among defensive backs, with 26 tackles, 1.0 sacks and a forced fumble through three games. Poyer also almost never leaves the field, playing 95 percent or more of the defensive snaps in every game since the start of last season, save for a Week 17 finale against the Jets when the Bills were resting starters.
Mecole Hardman WR KC (10)
Tue 9/29/20 12:52 AM
Hardman caught four of six targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.
Hardman's performance was highlighted by his 49-yard score prior to halftime. On that play, his sensational speed was on full display, giving quarterback Patrick Mahomes a free target downfield following a well-executed double-move. Through three games, Hardman has now elevated his numbers each week, and although he's still lacking consistency outside of devastating deep shots like Monday's score, the second-year pro is nonetheless trending in the right direction ahead of Week 4's game versus the Patriots.
Mark Andrews TE BAL (8)
Tue 9/29/20 12:51 AM
Andrews caught three of eight targets for 22 yards in Monday night's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.
Andrews and the rest of the Ravens offense had a performance to forget, but the tight end's failure to come up with a catchable, would-be touchdown during the third quarter made his outing all the worse. On the bright side, Andrews at least led Baltimore in targets, setting a new season high in the category as well. Following back-to-back down performances, Andrews should be desperate to return to his best form in Week 4 versus Washington.
J.K. Dobbins RB BAL (8)
Tue 9/29/20 12:51 AM
Dobbins rushed once for six yards and caught all four of his targets for 38 yards in Monday night's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.
Dobbins saw next to no involvement on the ground as Baltimore trailed for most of the game, resulting in all three of the team's tailbacks finishing with under 40 rushing yards. To his credit, though, Dobbins made an impact through the air, actually leading the Ravens in receptions and receiving yards. Although his modest totals won't wow anyone, the rookie at least salvaged some production in an awful offensive outing. Furthermore, Week 4's matchup against Washington figures to favor a Baltimore rebound, which could offer more opportunities to the team's backfield.
Sammy Watkins WR KC (10)
Tue 9/29/20 12:50 AM
Watkins caught seven of eight targets for 62 yards in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.
Watkins regularly helped Kansas City move the sticks, leading the team in both receptions and targets in his return from concussion protocol. The wideout also came close to his second touchdown of the season, but was pulled down at the two-yard line following a fourth-quarter catch. After just one grab in an injury-shortened Week 2 outing, Watkins bounced back well with his performance Monday, giving him decent momentum ahead of Week 4's game versus the Patriots.
Mark Ingram RB BAL (8)
Tue 9/29/20 12:47 AM
Ingram rushed seven times for 30 yards in Monday night's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.
Ingram was also targeted once but failed to connect with quarterback Lamar Jackson. On a night when Baltimore trailed for the majority of the contest, the team's patented ground game never got into gear. Jackson led the Ravens with 83 yards, but no tailback topped 40 yards or garnered more than Ingram's seven carries. That being said, through three games, Ingram has totaled just 136 yards while scoring once, so Monday's performance actually resembled his average outing to date. While the small sample size is surely something to consider, the presence of rookie J.K. Dobbins, whose 38 receiving yards paced all pass-catchers, along with holdover Gus Edwards has resulted in Ingram being leaned on less. Fortunately for him, a Week 4 matchup against Washington should bode well for a Ravens rebound.
Tyreek Hill WR KC (10)
Tue 9/29/20 12:47 AM
Hill caught five of six targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens. He also rushed twice for 25 yards.
Hill started the game by taking an end-around 22 yards on Kansas City's first offensive snap. The speedster subsequently made a catch of 33 yards, setting up his team's opening score, then got in the end zone himself with a 20-yard, over-the-shoulder reception in the second quarter. In doing so, Hill continued his touchdown streak, having scored in each of the first three weeks to this season, and also topped 100 total yards for the second straight game. On the back of form like that, Hill should be anxious to keep his momentum going in Week 4 versus the Patriots.
Travis Kelce TE KC (10)
Tue 9/29/20 12:45 AM
Kelce caught six of seven targets for 87 yards in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.
Kelce led the Chiefs in receiving yards while going for a season-long gain of 29 yards during Monday's contest. Although he couldn't continue his touchdown streak to start the season, instead seeing teammates Anthony Sherman and Eric Fisher vulture close-range scores through the air, Kelce still caught six passes for the third straight game and topped 85 yards for the second in a row. Up next for the highly-touted tight end is a matchup against the Patriots in Week 4.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB KC (10)
Tue 9/29/20 12:01 AM
Edwards-Helaire rushed 20 times for 64 yards and caught five of six targets for 70 yards in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.
Edwards-Helaire's dynamic skill set was once again on display in another great offensive performance from the Chiefs. Although he averaged just 3.2 yards per carry, the rookie flashed his ability to make defenders miss through power and quickness, and he reached 20 carries for the second time in three games. More impressively, however, Edwards-Helaire displayed his excellent hands, setting a new high mark in receiving yards for his young career. Just three games into life as a pro, Edwards-Helaire has already established himself as a uniquely talented tailback who's perfectly suited to his role in Kansas City's scheme, keeping his stock high ahead of a clash with the Patriots in Week 4.
Lamar Jackson QB BAL (8)
Mon 9/28/20 11:53 PM
Jackson completed 15 of 28 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs. He also rushed nine times for 83 yards, but lost one of his two fumbles.
Jackson and the Ravens' high-flying offense was grounded in uncharacteristic fashion in Monday's much-anticipated tussle. Whereas opposing quarterback Patrick Mahomes totaled over 400 yards and five touchdowns, Jackson failed to even top 100 passing yards. Along with that career low, Jackson also needed until the fourth quarter to score Baltimore's first offensive touchdown, a five-yard pass to tight end Nick Boyle. If there was any silver lining, Jackson at least had a big game running the ball, setting a new season high while topping 75 rushing yards for the 13th time of his career. Nonetheless, after falling flat in Monday's matchup, Jackson will undoubtedly be eager to return to his MVP best in Week 4 versus Washington.
