Walker is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 9. Since the Titans play a late afternoon game, owners should have a backup plan in place should Walker not be able to play. He was a late addition to the injury report, which is never a good sign, so his effectiveness should also be in question should he suit up.
It was by far the most productive game for Dennard this season, who had just seven total tackles through the first two games. Dennard played 52 of the Bengals' 70 defensive snaps Sunday, as he is still behind both Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick in the team's pecking order.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Operating as the No. 3 runner in the absence of Dwayne Washington (quadriceps), Zenner didn't do anything to suggest he might stick in that role upon Washington's return. His only fantasy potential rests in the random event he replaces Ameer Abdullah in goal-line situations and proceeds to vulture a touchdown or two. Since that didn't happen Sunday, he had almost zero utility. Because of this limiting situation, Zenner remains firmly off the fantasy radar in anything but the deepest of leagues.
This will be the third time that the Cardinals have elected to let go of Wheeler after they signed him on Wednesday. To go along with his release, the team has promoted Ricky Seals-Jones from the practice squad.
Forbath has made all 23 field-goal attempts in his Minnesota career, but had made just 13 of 18 extra-point attempts before Sunday. Converting all four extra-point attempts should help his job security.
Through three games, Gostkowski has recorded 25 points, while making all five of his field goal attempts and hitting 10 of 11 extra points. He'll have a chance to rebound (for his fantasy owners) in Week 4, when the Patriots host the Panthers. Last season, Gostkowski was held without a field goal attempt twice in 16 games.
