9/26/2017 Phil Dawson, Ari, K
Phil Dawson converted one of two field-goal attempts Monday as the Arizona Cardinals lost to the Dallas Cowboys 28-17. He made a kick of 37 yards, and missed a 36-yarder. Dawson tacked on two PATs.

Analysis: The 42-year-old may be starting to show his age, as he's now missed two kicks in the 30 to 39-yard range through three weeks and has yet to make a field goal longer than 40. Dawson is clearly on the low end of the fantasy spectrum right now.
9/26/2017 Dan Bailey, Dal, K
Bailey tacked on four PATs.
9/26/2017 Jason Witten, Dal, TE
Jason Witten had one reception for three yards Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Analysis: Those who started Witten with the hope he'd find the end zone for a third straight week were utterly disappointed. The 35-year-old is still one of the more reliable fantasy tight ends around, but Monday's line is a reminder that he's no longer a sure thing.
9/26/2017 Jaron Brown, Ari, WR
Jaron Brown had two receptions for 27 yards and one touchdown Monday in the Arizona Cardinals' 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Brown had a second touchdown catch called back by a holding penalty, but still posted a decent line working as Arizona's No. 2 receiver for a second straight week. His fantasy outlook for Week 4 is fully dependent on whether John Brown is able to return from his quadriceps injury.
9/26/2017 Cole Beasley, Dal, WR
Cole Beasley had one reception for four yards Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Analysis: With no more than four catches or 33 yards in any of the Cowboys' first three games, Beasley's reputation as a dependable but unspectacular option in PPR formats is beginning to tarnish. The slot receiver is still worth keeping an eye on, but he's not start-worthy at this moment.
9/26/2017 Terrance Williams, Dal, WR
Terrance Williams had three receptions for 47 yards Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Analysis: This is pretty much par for the course for Williams, one of the more mediocre No. 2 receivers in the league. The Dallas native now has accumulated a pedestrian 13 catches for 132 yards and no touchdowns through the first three weeks.
9/26/2017 Brice Butler, Dal, WR
Brice Butler had two receptions for 90 yards and one touchdown Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Analysis: Butler came up with two big plays in the second half to help get the Cowboys' offense rolling after a lethargic first two quarters. He's still unlikely to provide week-to-week fantasy contributions as a situational deep threat in a run-first attack.
9/26/2017 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Dez Bryant had two receptions for 12 yards and one touchdown Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Analysis: Bryant saw only two targets on a night he was shadowed often by Patrick Peterson, but made one of them count with a 15-yard catch-and-run score in the third quarter for his second touchdown in as many weeks. The premier receiver should be more of a factor next Sunday against a Rams defense that was torched by 49ers No. 1 wideout Pierre Garcon in Week 3.
9/26/2017 Jermaine Gresham, Ari, TE
Jermaine Gresham had five receptions for 47 yards Monday in the Arizona Cardinals' 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Gresham was surprisingly a big part of the Cardinals' game plan in his return from a one-week absence caused by a rib injury. The tight end could be worth inserting in fantasy lineups next week against the 49ers should John Brown remain out with a quadriceps issue.
9/26/2017 Larry Fitzgerald, Ari, WR
Larry Fitzgerald had 13 receptions for 149 yards and one touchdown Monday in the Arizona Cardinals' 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Fitzgerald atoned for last week's three-catch, 21-yard output by abusing Dallas' secondary all throughout the evening, finishing with his highest yardage total since 2014 and tying a career high for receptions in a game. With 22 catches and 244 yards through the first three weeks, the 34-year-old is showing no signs at all of slowing down.
9/26/2017 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Ezekiel Elliott ran for 80 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries Monday in the Dallas Cowboys' 28-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He added three receptions for 14 yards.

Analysis: Bottled up for much of the first half, Elliott avoided a second straight fantasy clunker by recording several tough runs after the break and a late TD that sealed Dallas' win. Though the Cowboys' offensive linchpin has averaged only 2.8 yards per carry over the past two weeks, those outings did come against two of the league's better run defenses in the Broncos and Cardinals.
9/26/2017 Kerwynn Williams, Ari, RB
Kerwynn Williams ran for three yards on one carry Monday in the Arizona Cardinals' 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: A trendy waiver-wire pickup after David Johnson sustained a multi-week wrist injury in Week 1, Williams has produced a mere 25 yards on 10 carries over Arizona's last two games. The journeyman will need an injury to Chris Johnson to hold any semblance of fantasy value.
9/25/2017 Tank Carradine, SF, DE
The 49ers have placed Carradine on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Carradine got hurt Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams. He will be eligible to return in eight weeks if San Francisco chooses to designate him as one of two players eligible to return from injured reserve. Carradine recorded seven tackles and a sack while starting two of the three games this season.
9/25/2017 Gerald McCoy, TB, DT
McCoy (ankle) played at Minnesota on Sunday but left the stadium in a walking boot after aggravating the existing injury.

Analysis: He's unlikely to practice this week.
9/25/2017 Kwon Alexander, TB, LB
Alexander (hamstring) could miss Week 4.

Analysis: Alexander did not play Sunday at Minnesota and was limited to only 40 snaps in Week 2, when he had an interception against the Bears.
9/25/2017 Noah Spence, TB, DE
Spence (shoulder) could miss Week 4.

Analysis: Spence has the Bucs' only sack and has forced a fumble in the first two games.
9/25/2017 Lavonte David, TB, LB
David could miss 4-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain suffered Sunday in Tampa Bay's loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Analysis: Coach Dirk Koetter said the Buccaneers are hopeful their leading tackler could return sooner than the typical timeframe of at least one month because X-rays were negative.
9/25/2017 Kelvin Benjamin, Car, WR
Benjamin dodged serious injury Sunday but his left knee injury could be an issue entering Week 4, coach Ron Rivera said on Monday. Rivera said Benjamin underwent an MRI exam and it "came back pretty good" after some feared the Panthers' leading receiver sustained another major knee injury in Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Analysis: Benjamin, who tore the ACL in his left knee in 2015, has nine catches for 110 yards in three games this season.
9/25/2017 Quintin Demps, Chi, S
Demps suffered a broken arm in the 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be out an indefinite period of time.

Analysis: Bears coach John Fox did not characterize Demps' injury as a season-ending one. Demps came out in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win and was replaced by former starter Adrian Amos. A 10-year veteran, Demps was acquired from Houston after the Bears struggled to defend against the pass and made a franchise record-low eight interceptions each of the last two seasons.
9/25/2017 Darren Sproles, Phi, RB
Sproles tore his ACL and broke his wrist on the same play in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Analysis: Coach Doug Pederson confirmed the injuries Monday, saying it's a "devastating" loss. The versatile Sproles has nine returns for touchdowns, including seven on punts. The 34-year-old veteran went to three Pro Bowls, including last season when he had a career-high 94 carries.
