Wide receiver Puka Nacua (oblique) caught five passes for 72 yards in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 3 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Nacua, who had 35 targets in the first two games of his career, settled for a more modest seven on Monday night. His longest gain came late in the fourth quarter when Matthew Stafford found the receiver open near the five-yard line for a 37-yard reception. A better throw from Stafford might have resulted in Nacua's first touchdown, but instead of making the catch on the run he had to go to the ground to make the play and was easily touched down by a defender at the three-yard line. Nacua is a must-start in Week 4 when the Rams face the Indianapolis Colts, who have allowed two 100-yard games and four total touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season.
Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams had a disappointing showing against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3. In the Rams' first game since Cam Akers was traded to the Vikings, Williams had only 10 rushing attempts for 38 yards. The second-year back was targeted seven times in the passing game but came away with just two catches for another 27 yards. Sean McVay gave his running back just two red zone rushing attempts on Monday night, ran 13 running plays in the entire game, and perplexed fans with his insistence on utilizing the pass to attempt short-yardage first-down conversions on multiple occasions. In Week 4, the Rams take on the Indianapolis Colts who have limited opposing running backs to 68 yards per game and have not allowed a touchdown to the position since Week 1. Still, with Williams operating as a three-down back he should be in starting lineups in Week 4.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Tutu Atwell caught five of his nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The third-year player added 22 more yards on the ground on a reverse which was initially ruled a touchdown until the video review showed that he was out of bounds at the Bengals' two-yard line. He finally connected with quarterback Matthew Stafford for a score with little more than a minute remaining in the game. Atwell is averaging almost nine targets per game and is thriving in the shadow of the rookie phenom Puka Nacua. In Week 4, the Rams play the Indianapolis Colts, who allowed a touchdown to two different wide receivers in each of their first two games this season. Atwell can put up WR3 numbers against a generous opponent and should be started in Week 4.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford opened the 2023 season with back-to-back 300-yard games, but talk of the 15-year veteran's rejuvenation stalled out in Week 3. In Monday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, he was intercepted twice and sacked four times while going 18-for-33 for 269 yards and one touchdown. Stafford did lead the Rams into the red zone four times and got within 30 yards of the goal line twice more, but could not get the Rams across the goal line until their final possession of the game. Monday's score was just his second touchdown in 126 total pass attempts this season, the second-worst rate in the league after Ryan Tannehill. Even though Stafford has another favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 4, by now he can't be trusted to finish any higher than as a QB2.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 5-of-9 targets for 39 yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 28-year-old slot man saw a busy first half amidst Cincinnati's conservative, dink-and-dunk approach, bringing in four of his six targets for 29 yards. Boyd later pulled in a short 10-yard reception in the fourth quarter but was on the wrong end of a spectacular play later in the series made by Ahkello Witherspoon, who ripped a pass away from Boyd for a pick. Boyd has 17 targets across the past two games but may find himself as the odd man out more often than not this year. The veteran has strong contingency upside if Ja'Marr Chase or Tee Higgins were to ever miss time, but Boyd is going to need the Bengals offense to start clicking if he wants to return WR3 value in full-PPR leagues.
Dynasty | Rams running back Kyren Williams posted 38 rushing yards, two catches and 27 receiving yards in a MNF loss to the Bengals. Dynasty Analysis: Ugh. Williams came back to earth in a big way in this one. While the trade of Cam Akers was huge for his dynasty value, this game is going to stop a lot of the momentum he carried into the week. Williams will now take a sub 4.0 yards per carry into a huge game against the Colts next week. His past and future performance will be one of the biggest dynasty storylines of the week as dynasty managers attempt to truly assess his true dynasty value.
Dynasty | Bengals receiver Tee Higgins posted two catches for 21 yards in the Bengals win against the Rams. Dynasty Analysis: Higgins has had a weird season to say the least. He had an 8/89/2 game last week but has just these two catches for 21 yards combined in his other two games after his week one shutout. He's also now caught just ten passes on 28 targets on the season. To make matters worse, Higgins left this game early. While the Bengals are saying he just experienced cramps, dynasty managers have to be concerned about the lack of consistency they've seen from an elite playmaker. Higgins will get the benefit of the doubt here but dynasty eyebrows are clearly being raised here.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon took 19 carries for 65 yards with one catch for an additional five yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The ground game fell victim to a pass-centric Bengals first half that saw 33 Joe Burrow dropbacks to seven Mixon rush attempts, but that ratio evened out a bit in the second half with Cincinnati's defense disrupting the Rams all night. Mixon made a nice cut on a 14-yard dash to the end zone to top off a 10-play scoring drive out of the half to ignite the crowd and ease the pressing Bengals offense for the moment. The 27-year-old has produced solid, yet unspectacular returns in each of campaign's initial three games, amassing at least 70 total yards in each. Mixon may find running room hard to come by on the road in Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans, who have sold out to plug the trenches at the expense of a sieve-like secondary.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins caught 2-of-8 targets for 21 yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 24-year-old didn't make his first catch until the middle of the second quarter on a third-and-long checkdown, and he dropped a pass on the ensuing series. Higgins proceeded to push off on Ahkello Witherspoon to set back a drive following a Bengals takeaway that put them in great field position. He chipped in a 13-yard play on Cincinnati's only touchdown drive of the game but committed another drop in the third quarter, which stalled what amounted into a field-goal drive. Higgins had to make a brief exit with cramps to rub salt in the wound but returned at the start of the fourth. His uneven start to the year may have fantasy managers questioning their trust in him, but Higgins nonetheless belongs on the WR1/2 fringe in Week 4's cushy draw with the Tennessee Titans.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase caught 12-of-15 targets for 141 yards in Monday's close 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The two-time Pro Bowler shined as one of the offense's lone bright spots on the evening. Chase made a few beautiful toe-dragging catches along the sideline in the second quarter, but they didn't ultimately provide a spark for Cincinnati's dormant first-half offense. He found some open space for a 43-yard catch-and-run to catalyze an eventual third-quarter scoring drive. Chase had more catches through Monday's first three quarters (11) than he had over his first two games collectively (10), and the 23-year-old may have emphatically slammed shut his fantasy buy-low window on Monday. Chase looks in Week 4 to be the latest WR1 to victimize a leaky Tennessee Titans secondary, who have consistently dispensed 100-yard receiving days in the opening three weeks.
Dynasty | Eagles running back D'Andre Swift had 130 rushing yards in the Eagles easy win against Tampa Bay. Dynasty Analysis: He added one catch for eight yards. It was the second straight big game for Swift, who now has over 300 rushing yards over the past two weeks. Kenneth Gainwell had just two fewer carries (14) than Swift but averaged five fewer yards per carry and looked like the clear #2 back tonight. This is a big development in dynasty leagues as Swift finally looks like a potential RB1 for the first time in 2023.
Dynasty | Bucs running back Rachaad White had just 38 yards on 14 carries in the Tampa Bay loss to Philadelphia. Dynasty Analysis: White avoided total disaster with three catches for 24 yards but just couldn't get anything going against the stout defense of the Eagles. With just 150 total rushing yards, ten catches and one touchdown on the season, it's time to start worrying about his status as the lead back in Tampa for the long-term. White managers would be wise to stash Sean Tucker, though he hasn't exactly set the world on fire, either. White will be in the crosshairs in week four as dynasty managers need to evaluate him at the quarter pole of the season. At this point, his ranking of RB22 is in peril.
Dynasty | Puka Nacua had five catches for 72 yards in the Rams MNF loss to the Bengals. Dynasty Analysis: His fantasy night was saved with a 37-yard grab in garbage time. Tutu Atwell paced the Rams with nine targets but Nacua was close behind with seven. While the crazy streak of ridiculous fantasy production comes to a halt, Nacua has still established himself as a weekly starter in fantasy leagues even though his ascension up the rankings will slow after tonight.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (calf) completed 26-of-49 attempts for 259 yards and one interception in Monday's narrow 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Cincinnati's game plan called for a hobbled Burrow to get the ball out quick despite a zone-heavy Rams defense that wasn't sending much heat for most of the night. It was a sleepy first half for the entire Bengals offense, and the 26-year-old's mostly rhythmless start to the year dragged into this one for a pitiful 5.3 yards per attempt on 49 throws. Burrow's pick came on a great fourth-quarter play by Ahkello Witherspoon to keep LA within striking distance when it seemed Cincy was about to pull away. Look for Burrow and the Bengals to try and open up the air attack in a prime opportunity to do so in Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans defense, which has nearly surrendered three consecutive 300-yard passing days to open the season.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught five of seven targets for 41 yards during the team's 25-11 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his best performance of the season to date, the 28-year-old has seen seven targets each of the past two games but has been unable to do much with them. Goedert ended up ranking second in targets on the night but gave fantasy managers another frustratingly low fantasy performance. Better days are surely ahead for the Eagles' tight end if he can continue to see a high target share, but he has a stiff matchup against Washington next week, who give up the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith caught four of five targets for 28 yards during the team's 25-11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After finishing with 131 yards last week and scoring in each of the past two games, the former Heisman winner came back to earth for fantasy managers and had a slow night. A.J. Brown got the squeaky wheel treatment after having two underwhelming performances to open the season and was given 14 targets. Smith has a great shot to bounce back next week against the division rival Washington Commanders and should be considered a top-tier WR2 in Week 4.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Olamide Zaccheaus caught two of three targets for 58 yards and a touchdown during the team's 25-11 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Filling in for Quez Watkins (hamstring), the former Atlanta Falcon posted his first touchdown as a member of the Eagles on a beautiful 34-yard pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts with only minutes left to go in the second quarter. While it is a nice story, Zaccheaus carries little fantasy value moving forward. Netting just three targets as the clear fourth option, Philadelphia does not typically throw enough to keep four pass catchers fantasy relevant. The 26-year-old can be safely left on the waiver wire during the team's Week 4 matchup against the Washington Commanders.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown caught nine of 14 targets for 131 yards during the team's 25-11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Many believed the 26-year-old would get the squeaky wheel treatment, and he led the team in targets by a wide margin, doubling the next closest teammate, Dallas Goedert. Brown would have had an even bigger night, but he dropped a touchdown in the back of the end zone in the second half. Fantasy managers who were panicking can rest easy, as the Eagles' top target will have multiple top-tier fantasy performances moving forward. Brown is a must-start option against the Washington Commanders next week.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has been a focal point of this offense early in the season. That remained the case during Monday's matchup versus the Philadelphia Eagles. The veteran wideout hauled in five of his 10 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the loss. The Bucs attempted to get Evans involved early on, but he wasn't able to haul in his touchdown until the score was out of reach. Evans should remain an important piece of this offense going forward. He should be considered a WR2 for their matchup against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift took 16 carries for 130 yards and added one reception for eight yards during the team's 25-11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 24-year-old gained over 100 yards on the ground for the second week in a row. He averaged 8.1 yards per carry, led the team in total carries, and was clearly the best back on the field for the Eagles. Kenneth Gainwell ended the night with 14 carries but saw eight of those on the game's final drive, where Philadelphia was trying to drain the clock. Swift will always mix in with another back, his injury history dictates that he is kept fresh, but he is the clear top back for the Eagles moving forward and has top-12 upside every week. The Georgia alum will be a must-start against the Washington Commanders next week.
