2017 Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Week 3

Jordan Montgomery (L) Headshot

Montgomery will start Tuesday's game against the Rays, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Montgomery will toe the rubber for Tuesday's series opener against the Rays after he was scratched from his original start over the weekend. With Montgomery pitching Tuesday, the Yankees could also send him out for a second start on Sunday (the final game of the regular season) if they aren't playing for anything meaningful, which would allow Luis Severino to be saved for the wild-card game. The rookie owns a respectable 4.06 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 136:49 K:BB through 144 innings (27 starts) this season.

TJ Jones Headshot

Jones secured all three of his targets for 63 yards during Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Falcons.

Despite tying for sixth on the team in targets, Jones still led the Lions in receiving yards Sunday. However, he doesn't appear to be anything more than a subsidiary target for QB Matthew Stafford moving forward and will likely continue to share the No. 3 wideout job with rookie Kenny Golladay until further notice -- while concurrently splitting targets with a pair of running backs, not to mention TE Eric Ebron. Thus, his upside is extremely limited, so Jones doesn't have the makings of a legitimate fantasy option at present time.
4:40 pm (EST)
Nick Boyle Headshot

Boyle caught both of his targets for a team-high 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Boyle played the same number of snaps as fellow tight end Ben Watson and recorded his first multi-reception outing of the season. His ability as a blocker allows Boyle to see a high percentage of the offensive snaps on a weekly basis, but Watson is the clear top option among the Baltimore tight ends in the passing game. Boyle and the Ravens will host the Steelers on Sunday.
4:39 pm (EST)
Brook Lopez Headshot

Lopez is dealing with back spasms and will be limited to start training camp, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports.

Lopez, who was dealt from the Nets to the Lakers this offseason, is not necessarily getting off to the best start with his new organization, as he's already dealing with back spasms. While both Lopez and coach Luke Walton expect him to take part in training camp, Lopez will start out as a limited participant and then be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. Still, it doesn't appear Lopez is in danger of missing any regular-season action and he's expected to open the season as the starting centerr, though it will be a situation to monitor moving forward. If Lopez does miss any time, Ivica Zubac would likely be the main beneficiary.
4:34 pm (EST)
Devin McCourty Headshot

McCourty was on the field for all 71 of the Patriots' snaps on defense in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

McCourty notched 10 total tackles Sunday, upping his season total in that department to 26 through three contests. In his role as the Patriots' starting free safety, the 30-year-old remains firmly on the fantasy IDP radar.
4:31 pm (EST)
Kyle Van Noy Headshot

Van Noy was on the field for all 71 of the Patriots' snaps on defense in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.

In the process, Van Noy logged 11 total tackles, upping his total in that department to 21 over the Patriots' first three games. Van Noy hasn't missed a snap this season and given his current heavy workload, he's worthy of IDP consideration in deeper formats.
4:27 pm (EST)
Michael Campanaro Headshot

Campanaro had one reception for three yards on two targets Sunday and added a seven-yard carry in the Ravens' loss to the Jaguars.

Despite being dinged up earlier in the week, Campanaro was able to take the field Sunday and logged a season-high 15 offensive snaps. His usage continues to be on the lower end even when he's on the field, seeing a low target volume along with the occasional carry on a jet sweep. Baltimore's low-volume passing attack coupled with Campanaro's low placement on the depth chart severely diminishes his upside on a weekly basis.
4:27 pm (EST)
Ricky Seals-Jones Headshot

Seals-Jones was promoted to the team's active roster Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With Jermaine Gresham (ribs) still questionable for Monday's game against the Cowboys, Seals-Jones will add some depth to the temporary depth to the tight end position. Regardless of whether Gresham is active or not, Seals-Jones is not expected to play much of a role in the team's offense Monday night or any time this season.
4:26 pm (EST)
Matt Jones Headshot

Jones had one carry for three yards while playing five snaps on offense in Sunday's win over Cleveland.

Jones was added to the active roster from the practice squad just before the game with Marlon Mack out with an injury. Jones may stay on the roster as long as Mack remains out, but could be released once he's back. He's not likely to have a large role barring more injuries.
4:26 pm (EST)
Brian Anderson (R) Headshot

Anderson is out of the lineup Monday against the Rockies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Since the start of September, Anderson has been operating as Miami's primary third baseman. Since the start of the month he's hit .258/.342/.348. Strikeouts have been a challenge for him, as he's struck out 20 times over 75 plate appearances. He'll sit out Monday while Derek Dietrich heads to the hot corner.
