Taylor Gabriel Headshot

Gabriel caught five of six targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-26 win over Detroit.

Gabriel appeared on his way to another pedestrian outing until a 40-yard catch-and-run on the first play of the fourth quarter gave Atlanta a lead that it would not relinquish. The play was Gabriel's first for over 20 yards this season which is notable because over 23 percent of Gabriel's touches went for 20 or more yards last season as compared to nine percent thus far this season. Gabriel, as he showed on Sunday, can be a valuable commodity when he's able to break one, but without the big play he's susceptible to some weak showings.

Jayon Brown Headshot

Brown cleared the concussion protocol and will be available to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, USA Today's Jason Wolf reports.

Brown's head injury turned out to be just a minor issue as he immediately cleared through the league's concussion protocol, so he'll be eligible to resume his role as a depth linebacker and special teamer.
6:48 pm (EST)
Zane McIntyre Headshot

McIntyre has been assigned to AHL Providence.

McIntyre is a candidate for a promotion when injuries hit the big club, but his demotion likely signals that veteran Anton Khudobin is in line to secure the Bruins' top backup goalie job behind Tuukka Rask.
6:47 pm (EST)
Zachary Senyshyn Headshot

Senyshyn has been assigned to AHL Providence.

Senyshyn's game-breaking speed and goal-scoring upside make him a potential fantasy contributor down the road, but he'll need to polish his all-around game in order to make the jump to the NHL level. The 2015 first-rounder is coming off a 2016-17 season in which he recorded 42 goals and 65 points in 59 games for OHL Sault Ste. Marie.
6:43 pm (EST)
Dee Ford Headshot

Ford is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers after suffering a hip injury, Ricky Henne of reports.

The extent of Ford's hip injury is currently unclear, though he does have a chance of returning at some point during Sunday's contest. In the meantime, Tanoh Kpassagnon and Frank Zombo could be in line for additional snaps at outside linebacker.
6:41 pm (EST)
Julio Jones Headshot

Jones nabbed seven of 12 targets for 91 yards in Sunday's 30-26 win over Detroit.

Jones fans have to like the gradual uptick in targets Jones has seen week-to-week, but they might also be asking themselves when he's going to find the end zone. He didn't get many opportunities on Sunday with just three targets on Detroit's side of the field, one of which was from the edge of the red zone. Though considered, rightfully, one of the league's more dominant players, Jones has never been the kind of red-zone threat his frame would suggest with just one season of double-digit touchdown production. While he has the ability to go off at any given moment, it's worth remembering that Jones has more three-game stretches without a touchdown since the start of the 2015 season, four, than multi-score games, two.
6:41 pm (EST)
LeSean McCoy Headshot

McCoy was held to just 21 yards on 14 carries in Sunday's win over Denver, though he did have a decent outing in the passing game with seven catches for 48 yards.

True, it was the Denver defense, but McCoy had run up 12 straight home games with at least 90 yards from scrimmage. Couple this outing with the ugly 46 scrimmage yards McCoy put up last week, and owners are certainly starting to look for more from the top-five pick. He gets a tough match-up at Atlanta next week.
6:40 pm (EST)
Jakub Zboril Headshot

Zboril has been assigned to AHL Providence.

Zboril, taken 13th overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, is a promising offensive-minded blueliner with a bit of a mean streak, but the 20-year-old will now head to the AHL for some additional seasoning. He's coming off a 2016-17 season in which he logged nine goals and 41 points in 50 games for QMJHL Saint John.
6:38 pm (EST)
Tarik Cohen Headshot

Cohen rushed 12 times for 78 yards and caught all four of his targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 23-17 overtime win over Pittsburgh.

Cohen's 6.5 yards per carry was a little misleading, as he was held in check most of the day outside of a 26-yard tote in the second quarter and his overtime scamper that appeared to be a game-winning touchdown. Unfortunately, he stepped out of bounds at the 37-yard line and the rush only went for 36 yards. Still, his explosiveness was on full display again Sunday, and he's carved out a significant role in the Chicago offense. The Bears have a short turnaround with a matchup against the Packers at Lambeau Field on Thursday, and the Green Bay defense hasn't been sharp the past two weeks.
6:30 pm (EST)
Jordan Howard Headshot

Howard rushed 23 times for 138 yards and two touchdowns and caught all five of his targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 23-17 overtime win over Pittsburgh.

It was reported earlier this week that Howard had been playing through a sprained AC joint, so after he was bottled up in Week 2 for just seven rushing yards on nine carries, this was a monster fantasy showing. Howard had eight rushes of over 10 yards Sunday, including both his touchdown scampers. Additionally, it was encouraging to see him active in the passing attack. It was a huge rebound showing for the sophomore, but Tarik Cohen also had another strong game, and Howard's game-to-game inconsistency is still a concern. It's a short week for Chicago, as the Bears face Green Bay at Lambeau Field on Thursday, so the limited turnaround could take a toll on Howard's shoulder and potentially cap his upside for Week 4.
