    Kendrick Bourne Sep 24 9:50am ET

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne caught four of his five targets for 67 yards in Week 2. He led the team in receiving yards and was the most-targeted wide receiver on the team in the game. In Week 3, he looks to be in a tough spot as the team's starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is questionable for the game and backup Nick Mullens could be in line to make the start. The team could also see their top pass-catcher, George Kittle (knee), make his return in the game. Bourne is a risky play even if Garoppolo starts and Kittle sits, but regardless, he should be avoided as a fantasy starter in Week 3.

    George Kittle Sep 24 9:50am ET

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (knee) has returned to practice on a limited basis and is currently questionable for Week 3 against the New York Giants. The 49ers are currently ravaged with injuries. Starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is questionable for Week 3 and backup Nick Mullens could be in line to make the start. Regardless of who is under center, Kittle will be the team's primary receiving target if he plays. He may not get the heavy target-share we saw him get last year due to the injury, but he's still worth starting in all formats if he's a go.

    Ben Roethlisberger Sep 24 9:50am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has done enough over the first two weeks for fantasy gamers to trust him as a low-end QB1 going forward. After missing all but two games in 2019 with an elbow injury, he has shown that his elbow is healthy on the way to completing 50 of 73 passes for 540 yards, five touchdowns, and just one interception through two games. He gets a plus matchup against a weak Houston Texans pass defense in Week 3, making him a solid fantasy quarterback option in all formats. Houston's pass defense ranks just 23rd in DVOA through two weeks and should provide little resistance to Big Ben and his talented pass catchers this weekend.

    JaMycal Hasty Sep 24 9:40am ET

    San Francisco 49ers rookie running back JaMycal Hasty is expected to make his NFL debut in Week 3 against the New York Giants. He's likely to serve as the team's No. 3 running back in the game behind Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson Jr. with Raheem Mostert (knee) doubtful and Tevin Coleman (knee) out for the game. Hasty could see anywhere from zero to around five touches in the game. In the deepest of leagues, he's a potential waiver wire add to stash on your bench, but he shouldn't be trusted in starting lineups until we see him do something on the field.

    Jerick McKinnon Sep 24 9:30am ET

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon is the last man standing in the team's backfield with Raheem Mostert (knee) doubtful and Tevin Coleman (knee) out for Week 3 against the New York Giants. McKinnon will be the team's lead running back in the game with Jeff Wilson Jr. and JaMycal Hasty as backups. McKinnon scored touchdowns in both of the team's first two games, despite seeing limited touches alongside Mostert and Coleman. He only has six carries and three receptions on the year. This week, McKinnon should easily see double-digit touches, including at least five targets in the passing game, which gives him solid potential as a low-end RB2 or high-end flex.

    Nick Mullens Sep 24 9:20am ET

    San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Nick Mullens could make his first start of the year in Week 3 against the New York Giants if starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is unable to go. Garoppolo suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 against the New York Jets and Mullens came in for the second half and completed eight of 11 passing attempts for 71 yards and an interception. The 49ers are extremely banged up right now and are unlikely to put up too many points regardless of who is under center in Week 3. Mullens can be left on waivers in all leagues even if he gets the start in Week 3.

    From RotoBaller

    Jimmy Garoppolo Sep 24 9:10am ET

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is currently questionable for Week 3 against the New York Giants. However, he seems to be trending more towards doubtful as he has continued to sit out practice through Wednesday. Backup quarterback Nick Mullens could be in line to make his first start of the year if Garoppolo is out. If Garoppolo makes the start, he's going to be tough to trust in fantasy. The 49ers would likely proceed with caution with him as to not risk further injuring his sprained ankle. Try to find other quarterback options outside of San Francisco this week.

    Arizona Cardinals Sep 24 9:00am ET

    The Cardinals Defense had a strong showing in Week 2 against the Washington Football Team. They held Washington to just three points in the opening three quarters of the game. Unfortunately, a pair of fourth quarter Washington touchdowns skewed the picture a bit. This week, the Cardinals face the Detroit Lions, who should have star receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) on the field for the first time this year. Expect the Lions to manage somewhere around 25 points in the game. As long as the Cardinals come up with one or two turnovers and at least a few sacks, they can turn in another solid fantasy performance.

    Andy Isabella Sep 24 8:50am ET

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andy Isabella flashed his big-play potential in Week 2, catching a 54-yard reception, the longest play from scrimmage on the day for the team. He caught both of his targets for 67 yards in Week 2. This week, Isabella will look to build on his Week 2 success against a struggling Detroit Lions Defense. Fellow receiver Christian Kirk (groin) is currently questionable for Week 3 with a groin injury. If Kirk sits, Isabella has a better chance to see a decent target share, making him a viable dart throw as a WR3 in deep leagues. If Kirk plays, Isabella should be avoided as a starting option.

    From RotoBaller

    Dan Arnold Sep 24 8:50am ET

    Arizona Cardinals tight end Dan Arnold has been the team's primary pass-catching tight end so far this year, but his work has still been extremely limited. Through two games, he has caught four of his six targets for 47 yards. The Cardinals have an extremely favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. We could potentially see Arnold break out a bit in the game, but it's tough to rely on that happening. In deep leagues, if you're struggling to find tight end production, he's a decent player to stash. Otherwise, he should remain on waivers and shouldn't be considered as a starting option until further notice.

    From RotoBaller

    Christian Kirk Sep 24 8:40am ET

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk (groin) sat out Wednesday's practice and is currently questionable for Week 3 against the Detroit Lions. If he plays, he's a risky starting option due to his slow start to the year. He's caught just three of his nine targets for 57 yards through two games. Kirk has some clear upside in an offense that should put up a lot of yards and points in 2020, but fantasy owners would be best off waiting to see Kirk deliver before starting him. If Kirk sits in Week 3, Andy Isabella could become a deep league dart throw option.

    From RotoBaller

    Larry Fitzgerald Sep 24 8:40am ET

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has caught 11 of his 12 targets for 84 yards through two games this year. He's averaging just 7.6 yards per reception as he's exclusively been used through short-yardage slot routes. His longest gain on the year is 12 yards. The Cardinals have a favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions in Week 2. Fitzgerald should be able to get open at will in the game. Fellow receiver Christian Kirk (groin) is currently questionable for Week 3 and if he sits, Fitzgerald could see a slight increase in targets. Regardless, Fitzgerald is a great high-floor, low-ceiling WR3 option in PPR leagues in Week 3. In non-PPR, you may need a touchdown from him to be happy with starting him, but this week could be as good a bet as any to see Fitzgerald find paydirt for the first time in 2020.

    From RotoBaller

    Chase Edmonds Sep 24 8:30am ET

    Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds has been the team's only running back to see the field this year apart from starter Kenyan Drake. He's played in 35% of the team's offensive snaps, while Drake has played in 68%. Edmonds has been targeted nine times in the passing game, while Drake has been targeted four times. Apart from a Week 1 receiving touchdown, Edmonds hasn't made much of a mark on the stat sheet this year, but that could change soon, potentially as soon as Week 3 in a favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions. Drake will see somewhere around 20 touches in the game while Edmonds might see around 10. Edmonds is a desperation start this week, but you could do worse if you're in a pinch in a deep PPR league.

    From RotoBaller

    DeAndre Hopkins Sep 24 8:30am ET

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is off to a phenomenal start to his Cardinals career. Through two games, he's caught 22 of his 25 targets for 219 yards and a touchdown. This week, the Cardinals face the Detroit Lions in a game where they should be able to throw the ball at will. Expect Hopkins to receive around 10 targets or more in the game, which will give him a great shot at another big, high-end WR1 type of week. He's a set-and-forget WR1 in all fantasy formats until further notice.

    From RotoBaller

    Kenyan Drake Sep 24 8:20am ET

    Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake should have a big game in store for Week 3 as the team takes on the Detroit Lions. Last week, Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones rushed for 168 yards on 18 carries (9.3 yards per carry) while adding 68 receiving yards against the Lions. He scored a total of three touchdowns in the game. Drake has been given a huge workload out of the gate in 2020. He had 16 carries in Week 1 and 20 carries in Week 2. He's yet to top 100 yards from scrimmage in a game, but Week 3 could very well be his first time over the century mark this year. Start him with confidence as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 this week.

    From RotoBaller

    Kyler Murray Sep 24 8:10am ET

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has a fantastic Week 3 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Last week, the Lions surrendered 42 points to the Green Bay Packers. The week before that, Mitchell Trubisky tore the Lions' defense apart in a dominant, 21-point fourth quarter. Expect to see Murray rack up a ton of yards both on the ground and through the air in Week 3. He scored three touchdowns last week and has a good chance to do the same this week. Hopefully, he can make it out of Week 3 without any turnovers, something he's failed to do in his two previous games. Start him with confidence as a high-end QB1.

    From RotoBaller

    Tyler Eifert Sep 23 10:50pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert caught three passes for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Titans, showing why the Jaguars brought in the oft-injured tight end this offseason. But Eifert is a huge risk in Week 3 against a Dolphins Defense that's struggled this year but has managed to shut down opposing tight ends, allowing 2.2 fantasy points per game to the position through a pair of games. Eifert is a risky deep league streaming option on Thursday night.

    From RotoBaller

    Justin Herbert Sep 23 10:50pm ET

    The Los Angeles Chargers have named quarterback Justin Herbert their Week 3 starter. Herbert was a last minute replacement in Week 2 after Tyrod Taylor (ribs) was injured during pregame routines. The rookie held his own against the Chiefs with 311 passing yards and 14 rushing yards. He also threw and ran for a touchdown while throwing one interception. He joined Otto Graham and Cam Newton as the only players ever with 300-plus passing yards and one rushing touchdown in a debut. Herberts insertion as the teams starter should help benefit all position players for the Chargers as he is less mobile than Taylor. Herbert will face the Panthers and could be considered in leagues with two quarterbacks. If Herbert has another good week, its possible that he could replace Taylor at the top of the depth chart, even with head coach Anthony Lynn saying that Taylor would remain the starter when healthy.

    From RotoBaller

    Laviska Shenault Jr. Sep 23 10:40pm ET

    Jacksonville Jaguars rookie wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. has seen some interesting usage patterns through two games, being used at running back at times. He had eight touches against the Titans last week, finishing with 72 total yards of offense. Shenault seems on the verge of a breakout performance and it could come on Thursday against a Dolphins Defense that's struggled in this young season and will be without corner Byron Jones (groin/Achilles). Shenault's far from the safest option, but fantasy managers wanting to take a big swing on upside this week could use him as a flex option.

    From RotoBaller

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sep 23 10:30pm ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense is a strong streaming option for Week 3 against the Broncos. Denver will be starting backup QB Jeff Driskel and has lost key players such as Courtland Sutton and Philip Lindsay for this game as well. Meanwhile, the Bucs' defense has generated two picks, six sacks, and two fumble recoveries in just two games. This week presents a prime opportunity to create some turnovers against a rather depleted Broncos offense.
