While week 3 of the fantasy football season saw Quarterback's Russell Wilson and Josh Allen continue to produce an ultra high level, we could see an official changing of the guard under center in Chicago after Mitchell Trubisky was benched for Nick Foles only for Foles to lead the Bears to a come from behind victory. It wasn't all celebrations in Chi-town though because the Bears will likely be without the services of Tarik Cohen for the rest of the season after he severely injured his Knee. Week 3 also saw top performances from Alvin Kamara who had 13 receptions, two of them being for touchdowns and Tyler Lockett caught three touchdowns. Lockett's teammate DK Metcalf was at the Center of all fantasy frustrations as he carelessly didn't protect the ball as he was heading into the endzone, only for it to get knocked out going to the back of the endzone. It was a Touchdown turned over and he should have had two for the day. As we head to week 4, remember, being 0-3 doesn't mean your season is over, but it's time to get aggressive in making moves. We'll help you turn things around.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports John Ross' agent, Brad Cicala, and the Bengals have discussed a potential trade before the November 3 deadline.
The talks apparently didn't "get too far." Ross was activated on Sunday but only played a single snap and didn't record a target. It's clear the organization has mentally moved on from the 24-year-old after declining his fifth-year option over the summer and benching him in Week 2 following a dropped pass. Ross needs a fresh start to have any fantasy value moving forward.

Dalton Schultz caught 4-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Cowboys' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.
It's been a forgettable two weeks in the box score for Schultz in the aftermath of the Dak Prescott broken ankle. This offense can no longer support four or five weapons, and Schultz is that fourth or fifth option. He'll be a TE2 for Week 7 against Washington.

Michael Gallup caught just 2-of-6 targets for 23 yards in the Cowboys' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.
Gallup dropped a would-be touchdown in the end zone in the first half and had a couple poor throws sail way beyond his reach on some end-zone shots deep in the fourth quarter. Gallup has settled in as a WR4 ahead of a Week 7 date with Washington.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 3-of-4 targets for 22 yards in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.
Fitzgerald hasn't topped 50 yards in a game this season and has yet to find the end zone. That's all we need to know.

CeeDee Lamb caught 7-of-10 targets for 64 yards in the Cowboys' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.
His 10 targets were tied with Amari Cooper for second on the team behind Ezekiel Elliott's 11 on a night Andy Dalton fired off 54 passes in a blowout loss. Lamb is still going to see heavy volume with Dalton, keeping him on the WR3 map, but this offense is going to be so much worse without Dak Prescott. Lamb gets a date with Washington in Week 7.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 2-of-8 targets for 73 yards in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.
Nuk was targeted on 33% of Kyler Murray's 24 throws, but he completed just nine total. It was Hopkins' first game of the season with fewer than six catches. The NFL leaders in targets and catches, Hopkins will be a lock-and-load elite WR1 for next week's date with Seattle's horrible pass defense.

Tony Pollard rushed 10 times for 31 yards in the Cowboys' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.
He caught 2-of-4 targets for nine yards in the passing game. Ezekiel Elliott lost a pair of first-half fumbles, so Pollard got a little extra run after the second turnover, but he's still not a threat to meaningful weekly touches when Elliott is healthy.

Chase Edmonds rushed five times for 23 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Cowboys.
Kenyan Drake busted out for 20-164-2 rushing, so he still remains pretty significantly ahead of Edmonds on the backfield depth chart. There just isn't really enough here to make Edmonds a weekly fantasy starter, even if he remains one of the truly elite insurance options with RB1 upside should Drake ever get hurt.
