Houston Texans @ Chicago Bears

  • Khalil Herbert: 20 carries, 157 yards, 2 touchdowns, 2 receptions, 12 receiving yards
  • dameon pierce: 20 carries, 80 yards, 1 touchdown, 2 receptions, 21 receiving yards

Add Khalil Herbert: David Montgomery he suffered an ankle and knee injury early in the first quarter and was quickly considered doubtful to return. Herbert became the Bears’ primary running back and dominated throughout the game.

    • Herbert and Trestan Ebner he shared the snaps early on, but Herbert took on more of the workload after playing well.
    • He played 16 snaps to Ebner’s 13 in the first half. Herbert dominated the plays, 22 to two, in the second half.
    • The second-year running back would be the clear starter while Montgomery is out.
    • He should be a waiver wire target regardless of Montgomery’s health. Herbert’s rushing performance was Chicago’s best so far this season, and he could see more playing time even with a healthy Montgomery.
    • Herbert is on just 25.4% of the rosters in ESPN’s leagues.

Monitor the Byron Pringle injury: Pringle suffered a calf injury on the Bears’ second offensive play and did not return.

    • Pringle had been fourth on the Bears’ depth chart, executing just eight pass routes in the first two games.
    • He had missed about a month during training camp, including all of preseason, with a quad injury.
    • Got your first start again dante pettis against the Texans and seemed destined for more playing time before the injury.
    • Pettis was again the third wide receiver for the rest of the game.

sell high dameon pierce: Pierce remained the clear starting runner, posting the best numbers of his career, but the script of the game had a lot to do with his number of carries.

    • Pierce remains the clear early, short-yardage runner, but Rex Burkhead is still the clear transmission down.
    • Burkhead took all 15 snaps on third and 3+ and in two-minute drill situations.
    • The Texans have been lucky with one of the easiest schedules so far this year, allowing them to stay close in games.
    • Houston either played ahead or didn’t fall behind throughout the game against Chicago despite losing.
    • Their the schedule is more complicated the rest of the season.
    • Pierce can definitely be a fantasy starter, particularly in some division matchups, but in other games, Houston won’t have the luxury of rushing more than 15 times.

do not add jordan akins: The former Texans tight end returned to the team after a short stint with the Giants and scored Houston’s only touchdown pass.

    • Brevin Jordan he missed this match with an ankle injury. He’ll likely be the Texans’ receiving tight end again once he returns.
    • brown pharaoh he ran the most routes on the team, took the most first snaps and split two-minute, third-down drills with Akins.
    • OJ Howard was one of the biggest surprises of Week 1, but he barely played in this game.

Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots

J. K. Dobbins‘ return: Dobbins returned to the field after sustaining an ACL, LCL, hamstring and meniscus injury during the 2021 preseason.

    • The Ravens used a two-man backfield with Dobbins and justice hilltending to incorporate Dobbins in the early casualties and Hill in the latter.
    • Dobbins wasn’t terribly inefficient, adding 23 yards on seven carries and two receptions for 17 yards.
    • Expect Dobbins to get at least a little more playing time going forward.
    • His role could change throughout the season whenever Gus Edwards is ready to return.
    • Drake from Kenya was a healthy inactive, while Mike Davis he was active and hardly played. Both players can be cut in fantasy football.

Monitor the mac jones injury: Jones appeared to suffer a leg injury late in the game and immediately went to the locker room.

    • Brian Hoyer he’s the Patriots’ backup quarterback and would pick up the slack if Jones misses any time.
    • Hoyer would only be an exemption wire target in the superflex leagues and hurt the value of the Patriots’ wide receivers.

rammond stevenson the season could be coming Stevenson led the backfield in carries (12), rushing yards (73), receptions (4), and receiving yards (28).

    • Damian Harris started the game for New England, and the team continued to use a fairly strict rotation for momentum.
    • The biggest exception to this was Stevenson receiving back-to-back drives late in the first half to stay in two-minute drills.
    • The main reason Stevenson has so many more snaps is that units with him on the field have lasted longer.
    • The Patriots may realize the offense is doing better with Stevenson and then start giving him more snaps.

The Patriots wide receiver’s confusing room: Parker had an excellent game Jacob Meyers‘ absence.

    • Nelson Agholor he received more snaps than usual, taking the role of Meyers on the outside.
    • Little Jordan Humphrey became the team’s slot receiver, even though Agholor had the second-most routes there for the first two weeks and kendrick bourne running 148 routes from the slot last season.
    • Bourne was the second most successful wide receiver on the team on Sunday despite running the fourth most routes.
    • Tiquan Thornton could come back in about a month and further complicate the situation once he returns.
    • Parker should be on fantasy rosters, but it would be hard to trust him in starting lineups unless he stays that way.

Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings

  • Jamaal Williams: 20 carries, 87 yards, 2 touchdowns, 2 receptions, 20 receiving yards
  • dalvin cook: 17 carries, 96 yards, 1 touchdown

Add Alexander Mattison: dalvin cook he suffered a wrist injury in the third quarter and was quickly ruled out of the game.

    • Mattison took over and rushed the ball seven times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Cook’s absence.
    • It should be added regardless of Cook’s health because she is one of the best wives in the NFL.
    • he classified third in the PFF wives rankings to start the year and he’s always been a fantasy starter whenever Cook has been away.
    • It is still available in 37.3% of the leagues.

Add Jamaal Williams: Williams remained the Lions’ leader in rushing despite D’Andre Swift Playing.

    • Swift continued to dominate the work of the passing game, seeing most of the third downs, half of the two-minute drill, and plenty of routes executed on the opening plays.
    • Williams continues to take all the work from the goal line and a lot of the plays from close range.
    • Swift’s ankle injury limited him in practice all week, which could be part of the reason he doesn’t touch the ball as much.
    • Even when he’s healthy, Williams likely won’t walk away, at least in close range situations.
    • Williams should remain a borderline starter or at least a flex play in the right matchups.
