After giving up a combined 102 points in their first two games, the Miami Dolphins Defense may now somehow be even worse in Week 3 when they travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys. The Fins achieved this level of pessimism by trading defensive back (and 2018 first-round selection) Minkah Fitzpatrick to Pittsburgh on Tuesday for a package of draft picks highlighted by the Steelers first-round pick in 2020. By trading the only Fitzpatrick on the roster whose talent could possibly get in the way of their tanking, Miami virtually assured that every opponent they play this season will have a chance to light up the scoreboard. While the Miami defense shouldn't have been on anyone's radar in the first place, the trade of Fitzpatrick is still notable from a fantasy perspective as owners will no longer have to worry about their top receivers being shut down by the former Alabama standout. With a matchup against the high-powered offense of Dallas on the horizon, expect any Cowboy with a pulse to have a green light.
Dallas Cowboys free safety Xavier Woods (ankle) is expected to miss four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain, according to a source. Woods is a key piece of Dallas' secondary, so this is a notable loss moving forward, although it's not likely to matter much in Week 3 with a putrid Dolphins offense coming to town. The Cowboys Defense/special teams is a must-start this Sunday and are an easy top-three fantasy option.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's (foot) Week 3 status against the Cardinals is up in the air after he aggravated a foot injury that he initially suffered in the preseason. Newton is rehabbing during practice on Tuesday. Cam hasn't looked good through two weeks, and perhaps his foot is the main reason why. He's run the ball five times in two games for a total of negative-two yards. His fantasy owners were really hoping he could bounce back this Sunday in a great matchup against the Cardinals, but it's looking like he might be extremely questionable. You better make plans now in case he's inactive. Either Kyle Allen or rookie Will Grier would start if Newton can't play, and the Panthers would likely feed the ball to running back Christian McCaffrey all day.
The good news is that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant led the team in targets in a 43-0 loss to the Patriots on Sunday, with seven. The bad news is that he only caught three of those targets, finishing with just 22 yards. The worst news is that with the Dolphins down 37-0 in the fourth quarter, Grant missed his only opportunity for fantasy relevance, dropping a long pass from Josh Rosen that likely would've resulted in a 45-yard touchdown. But even if he had caught the pass, it still wouldn't change the fact that there are few reasons to roster Grant in Week 3 as the Dolphins pack it up and go on the road for the first time in 2019, traveling to Dallas to take on the 2-0 Cowboys.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams caught four of his six targets in Miami's 43-0 blowout loss to the Patriots on Sunday, ending with a total of 63 yards. While 48 of those yards came after the game was already out of hand in the second half, Williams was still Miami's most productive player on offense - even though that isn't exactly a difficult achievement. But even though he was Miami's best player on Sunday, it doesn't mean that he should find a home anywhere but in the deepest of fantasy leagues. With quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and his lack of magic leading a minor-league band of misfits into Dallas for a Week 3 matchup, leave Williams on the wire where he belongs.
New England Patriots left tackle Isaiah Wynn (toe) is considered week-to-week with turf toe, according to a source. His injury is not season-ending, however. With right tackle Marcus Cannon also injured, New England's offensive line has become a question mark moving forward. It's an upgrade to the Jets defensive line in Week 3, but fantasy owners won't be benching quarterback Tom Brady anytime soon. Marshall Newhouse is expected to take over at left tackle for however long Wynn is out.
Kansas City Chiefs running back LeSean McCoy's (ankle) MRI exam showed no significant damage to his ankle and he has a shot to play in Week 3 against the Ravens, according to sources. Damien Williams was also injured in Week 2, so McCoy's fantasy value will depend on if Williams can play as well. As of now in a tough matchup with Baltimore, Shady will be more of an RB3/flex play. If Williams is inactive, undrafted rookie Darwin Thompson should see more work on passing downs, making him flex-worthy in deep PPR formats.
That inevitable moment has finally arrived. Head coach Pat Shurmur has named Daniel Jones the starting quarterback for the New York Giants. While many Giants fans will rightfully be excited by the move, it's important to temper expectations early on. Jones is going to be throwing to one of the league's worst collection of wide receivers on a team that will still allow running backSaquon Barkley to dominate the offensive game plan. Jones looked good in the preseason and can be fired up as a QB2 in certain matchups, but this doesn't lead to a notable bump for any of the Giants skill position players, as Barkley and tight endEvan Engram were always going to be top-five options at their positions. Assuming Eli Manning has started his last game for the Giants, he will finish with a fitting record of 116-116.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning was benched in favor of rookie QB Daniel Jones for Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: Manning loses all fantasy value for now. It's possible he is traded or released and lands in a spot that could rejuvenate some spot-start potential.
Detroit Lions QB Josh Johnson was released Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The Giants have named rookie quarterback Daniel Jones their starting quarterback for the Week 3 game, benching Eli Manning.
Dallas Cowboys FS Xavier Woods (ankle) is out four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain.
Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) isn't having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, and the recovery time isn't as long as the 12-to-15-month window it would take. His season is still over, though.
Fantasy Spin: Mason Rudolph will be a matchup play the rest of the way. If you own Big Ben in a dynasty league, it's hard to see holding on to him considering his age and the severity of the injury to his position.
Free-agent S Josh Jones (Packers) is working out for the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Free-agent CB Kayvon Webster (Saints) is working out for the New York Jets Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Free-agent RB Josh Ferguson (Texans) is working out for the Washington Redskins Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy's (ankle) MRI didn't show any significant damage, and he could play in Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: McCoy will be in the mix for a flex play against the Baltimore Ravens, but it's hard to start a potentially gimpy McCoy in his limited role.
Pittsburgh Steelers SS Sean Davis (shoulder) sustained a torn labrum in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks, but his injury is not believed to be season ending. Once he returns, he will likely be out of the lineup as a starter following the acquisition of CB Minkah Fitzpatrick.
Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) will have further tests Tuesday, Sept. 17 on his hamstring after aggravating his injury in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Thomas just joined the Jets, likely rushed to play despite entering with a hamstring injury. He might be fine to play as soon as Week 3 depending on his tests, but fantasy owners will want to see him get a little more comfortable with the playbook and build a little more consistency first. In addition, the Jets appear to be down to their third-string QB, so it might be a while before Thomas bears any fruit for fantasy owners.
