    Seahawks' Noah Fant: Four targets in losing effort
    2h ago

    Fant hauled in all four of his targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Falcons.

    Fant had one more target and reception than fellow tight end, Will Dissly, but it was the latter who was the beneficiary of a Geno Smith touchdown pass. The even split in playing time and targets has left both veteran tight ends with little to no fantasy appeal heading into a Week 4 matchup with the Lions.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo SF QB
    49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo: Two costly turnovers in loss
    2h ago

    Garoppolo completed 18 of 29 pass attempts for 211 yards, a touchdown, an interception and a lost fumble in Sunday's 11-10 loss to the Broncos.

    Garoppolo got off to a good start Sunday, leading his team to an early touchdown on the second offensive drive of the game. That's about where the positive reviews end, as the popular quarterback looked like his old, mistake-prone self for the remainder of the contest. Garoppolo's night can best be summed up when he mishandled a snap early in the second half, then tried to save the broken play by throwing it right at a defender for a would-be pick-six had he not already stepped out of his own end zone for a safety prior to throwing the errant pass. To make matters worse for the 1-2 49ers, All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) went down on the aforementioned broken play, which does not bode well for Garoppolo and Co. heading into a Week 4 matchup against the Rams' vaunted defensive front on Monday Night Football.

  • Russell Wilson DEN QB
    Broncos' Russell Wilson: Clutch finish to ugly game
    2h ago

    Wilson completed 20 of 33 pass attempts for 184 yards and no touchdowns while adding 17 yards on six carries in Sunday's 11-10 win over the 49ers.

    Wilson struggled against San Francisco's fierce pass rush all night, even hearing a chorus of boos from the home crowd following multiple consecutive three-and-out drives. The veteran QB seems to be trying a game-manager role with his new club, and the results have not been pretty through three games. It wasn't until Denver's final drive of the game that Wilson took it upon himself to use his legs to escape pressure like he did in his prime in Seattle and will his team to victory. Perhaps the heroic effort will spur Wilson to get back to his old ways of extending plays with his legs and taking deeper shots downfield, because the former fantasy star is posting stat lines best fit for the waiver wire since joining the Broncos. The Raiders' porous defense, which Wilson and Denver will see next week, presents a prime opportunity to finally deliver on the preseason hype.

  • Jerry Jeudy DEN WR
    Broncos' Jerry Jeudy: Not in sync with QB
    3h ago

    Jeudy (shoulder/ribs) was limited to two receptions on six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 11-10 win over the 49ers.

    Jeudy was held out of practice until Friday's limited participation after he was knocked out of last week's tilt with multiple injuries, so it was a good sign that he was able to suit up at all. The minor rib and shoulder injuries didn't visibly seem to limit the wideout, as he appeared crisp on the routes he did run while successfully absorbing two tackles to the midsection on his two receptions. The issue was actually Russell Wilson's uncharacteristic inaccuracy, as he missed an open Jeudy on three routes where the receiver beat his man. Courtland Sutton (eight catches for 97 yards) is looking like the top receiving option in an underperforming Denver passing game, but Wilson and Jeudy will have a chance to get back to their Week 1 forms next Sunday against the Raiders.

  • Brandon Aiyuk SF WR
    49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Scores lone offensive touchdown
    3h ago

    Aiyuk caught three of eight targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 11-10 loss to the Broncos.

    Aiyuk looked poised for a big fantasy game when he caught two of his three targets (including the score) on the 49ers' second drive of the game. Unfortunately for his fantasy managers, both Aiyuk and the rest of San Francisco's offense would go dormant for the rest of the contest. On the positive side of things, the 24-year-old has seen his targets increase to eight in each of the two games Jimmy Garoppolo has played in this season after seeing only three targets with Trey Lance (knee) as the starter in Week 1. Aiyuk carries flex appeal heading into a matchup against the Rams next Monday.

  • George Kittle SF TE
    49ers' George Kittle: Nabs four receptions in 2022 debut
    3h ago

    Kittle (groin) hauled in four of five targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 11-10 loss to the Broncos.

    Kittle made his much-anticipated return from a groin injury that kept him out of the first two games of the season. The star tight end looked like his old self, throwing his weight around in the run game like the pseudo offensive lineman that he is. The 28-year-old's fantasy line left much to be desired, as head coach Kyle Shanahan inexplicably failed to get his explosive tight end the ball more than four times in a game during which the 49ers showed no life offensively outside of a lone drive in the first quarter. The positive news to take away from a fantasy perspective is that Kittle didn't appear to be limited physically, nor did he suffer a setback. Kittle will look to make his first fantasy splash in a divisional matchup against the Rams on Monday Night Football in Week 4.

  • Ryan O'Hearn KC DH
    Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Drives in two
    4h ago

    O'Hearn went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Mariners.

    O'Hearn has seen his playing time drop even more since rosters expanded at the start of September -- he's started in just four contests this month. Despite the inconsistent playing time, he's been solid, going 7-for-22 (.318) in his last 10 contests. He hadn't driven in a run since Aug. 22 before his two-run double in the sixth inning Sunday. O'Hearn has a .230/.285/.310 slash line with one home run, five doubles, 13 RBI and 13 runs scored through 137 plate appearances.

    Dozier produced RBI singles in the second and sixth innings. This was his third multi-hit effort in his last four games, a solid rebound after he went just 3-for-33 in his first 13 contests in September. The utility man is up to a .240/.298/.387 slash line with 39 RBI, 49 runs scored, 11 home runs and four stolen bases through 124 games this year.

    Royals' Jose Cuas: Snags win Sunday
    4h ago

    Cuas (4-2) earned the win Sunday over the Mariners. He allowed two runs on two hits and three walks in 1.1 innings.

    Cuas was tasked with finishing off the fifth inning, and he also gave up a pair of runs in the top of the sixth. The Royals' offense then exploded for 11 runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the right-hander in line for the win. Prior to Sunday, Cuas had logged eight scoreless innings over his last 12 appearances. He now has a 3.58 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 34:24 K:BB while adding a save and 11 holds through 37.2 innings this year.

    Soto capped off a productive series in Minnesota on Sunday, as he put up a third consecutive multi-hit performance during the blowout win. He also recorded his first career stolen base in the majors in the top of the sixth inning. Over nine games since making his big-league debut, the 22-year-old has hit .346 with a home run, two doubles, five runs, four RBI and a stolen base.

    Twins' Dylan Bundy: Charged with loss Sunday
    5h ago

    Bundy (8-8) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out two in 3.1 innings to take the loss during Sunday's game against the Angels.

    Bundy hasn't been particularly effective recently, and Sunday's start marked his fourth consecutive outing in which he's failed to last at least five innings. Although he's been charged with just two losses across that span, he's posted a 9.18 ERA in 16.2 innings over those four starts. The right-hander tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Detroit on Saturday.

  • Jae Crowder PHO PF
    Suns' Jae Crowder: Won't participate in training camp
    12h ago

    Crowder won't participate in training camp as the forward and the Suns work on a trade, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Crowder has hinted on social media during the offseason that he wanted out of Phoenix, and the 32-year-old and the Suns reached a mutual agreement to seek a trade while the forward sits out during camp. Crowder served exclusively as a starter for the Suns last year and averaged 9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 28.1 minutes per game across 67 appearances. He's a somewhat inconsistent fantasy option, but he'd provide a solid veteran presence in the frontcourt for another team in the final year of a three-year deal if he's ultimately dealt. If Crowder is traded, Cameron Johnson will likely handle an increased role to begin the 2022-23 campaign.

    Bucks' Joe Ingles: January return realistic, per GM
    12h ago

    Bucks general manager Jon Horst said Sunday that Ingles (knee) will realistically return sometime in January, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

    Ingles signed with the Bucks in June after sitting out the remainder of last year following ACL surgery in February. When available, he figures to be a key depth piece that can provide elite shooting off the bench. Milwaukee is expected to compete for another championship, so they'll likely have no reason to rush the veteran forward back until the postseason draws near.

    Bucks general manager Jon Horst said Sunday that it's too early to say if Middleton (wrist) will be ready for start of the regular season, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

    Middleton underwent wrist surgery at the beginning of July and was expected to be back sometime near the start of the regular season. Horst said Middleton would be ready "early in our season," suggesting he may be sidelined for a few games to begin the 2022-23 campaign. Regardless, his progress during training camp should provide further clarity on his situation.
