Even though Williams will most likely be listed as questionable for the game on Sunday, this is good news he was able to practice. In his last four games, he has had 100 yards receiving twice. Both games where he was unable to reach 100 yards were against the Broncos. Williams is expected to play and fantasy owners should expect him to be a high-upside WR2 against the Titans.
Nine of the tackles were of the solo variety. This marked the second time this season Mills led the Eagles in tackles. As long as opposing offenses view him as an easy target, his IDP-league production should remain solid.
Fitzgerald put together a vintage performance, tying his career high in receptions while accounting for his highest yardage since Week 8 of the 2014 campaign. Without tailback David Johnson (wrist) available, the 34-year-old Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable playmaker, as was on display Monday. While the veteran's numbers were inflated by three catches of 20-plus yards, Fitzgerald's 15-yard touchdown during the third quarter was a more familiar sight at this stage in his career. Although it wasn't enough to lead his team to victory, Fitzgerald surely helped plenty fantasy owners with his Week 3 outburst.
The rookie missed from 52 yards in the third quarter but more than atoned for it with a field goal from 46 to tie the game with under a minute remaining and then the 61-yarder as time expired to win it. Having achieved legendary status in only his second game for Philadelphia, one wonders if he will cede the job back to Caleb Sturgis when the veteran returns from IR. Of course, the former Bengals practice-squad signee can't afford to keep hooking a kick left each game for that to be a realistic possibility.
Ellington surprisingly led the Cardinals in rushing, illustrating just how much they struggled in that department on the night. By doing so in seven fewer carries than Chris Johnson, however, Ellington could make a push for more handoffs in Week 4. Already a superior pass-catcher to Johnson, Ellington trailed only Larry Fitzgerald in the major receiving categories Monday. As a result, if he can get more carries, Ellington's fantasy stock could rise thanks to his versatility in David Johnson's (wrist) absence.
The touchdown was a fluke, as it actually tipped off rookie Zay Jones and took a fortuitous bounce into Holmes' veteran hands. Those using him in deep leagues will take it, but are also realizing he's a non-starting option for a bad passing team and there are likely to be several weeks with empty production. Holmes saw the field for 34 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday.
Johnson was handed at least seven more carries than any of his teammates, but the veteran struggled to find running lanes. Overall, the Cardinals' long rush of the night went for six yards, so Johnson wasn't alone in that respect, but he'll be frustrated by his performance nonetheless. Add in the fact fellow tailback Andre Ellington totaled 22 yards on five carries and 59 yards on as many catches, and Johnson could face more competition for touches in Week 4 versus the 49ers.
Palmer was regularly under siege by Dallas' pass rush, evidenced by the six sacks he took in Arizona's losing effort. Despite limited time to throw, however, Palmer was still able to manufacture a second straight game with over 320 passing yards. With a touchdown on both sides of halftime, Palmer also managed to double his season total without adding any more turnovers to his tally. As Palmer and the Cardinals offense searches for ways to replace David Johnson's (wrist) production, a home matchup against the 49ers awaits in Week 4.
Lee played most of the game before suffering the injury, which allowed him to still lead the team with eight tackles. The severity of the injury remains unclear ahead of Week 4's matchup against the Rams.
Butler overcame his questionable tag to play through an ankle ailment, and in doing so, he finished as Dallas' leading receiver. Although Butler made just a couple catches, he made the most of his two looks. After scoring a contested, 37-yard touchdown to start the fourth quarter, Butler hauled in a 75-yard score on the Cowboys' next drive. That is, until the later play was overturned and Butler was ruled down after 53 yards. Nonetheless, the No. 4 wideout put together a performance to be proud of, helping his team clinch its second win of the season in the process.
Bryant didn't make many plays while lining up across from Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, but his 15-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter was arguably the best effort of the game. After running an underneath route, Bryant eluded Peterson and company before muscling his way through defenders on his final couple yards to the end zone. In doing so, Bryant not only scored for the second straight game, but also gave the Cowboys their first lead of the night. Following three straight tough matchups to kick off the campaign, Bryant is slated to face Trumaine Johnson and the Rams in Week 4.
Monday's test results confirmed that Baldwin's groin injury isn't overly serious, although there's no guarantee he'll be available against the Colts. His activity level throughout this week of practice will ultimately be the determining factor, and if he's deemed inactive Sunday, Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett should be candidates for extra targets.
