The Chiefs released K Matt Ammendola. He missed a 34-yard FG and an XP in the Week 3 loss to the Colts. We'll see if K Harrison Butker is able to return for Week 4 or if the Chiefs sign another K.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley said Monday that EDGE Joey Bosa is "week to week" after suffering a significant groin injury, according to multiple reports. That explanation makes it appear the team expects Bosa to miss at least 1 game. We'll see beyond that.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. He'd been listed as doubtful, so no surprise here. Sterling Shepard, David Sills and Richie James are the favorites to lead Giants WRs in snaps tonight.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Giants. So we wait another week for his return from last January's torn ACL. NFL Network's Jane Slater reports that the Cowboys are "hopeful" that Gallup will be able to play vs. the Commanders on Sunday.

Browns EDGE Myles Garrett went to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a single-car rollover accident Monday afternoon, according to multiple reports. There's been no further report of Garrett's specific injuries. We'll have to see about the impact on his football availability.

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Giants. That leaves Dallas with TEs Jake Ferguson and Peyton Hendershot. Ferguson has run 12 pass routes to Hendershot's 6 so far this season.

Giants EDGE players Azeez Ojulari (calf) and Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Cowboys. It will be the 1st game for each this season after their injuries kept them out the 1st 2 weeks. Their returns are bound to help the Giants defense over the long run. We'll see about how immediately effective each young player is off the multi-week injury.

Cowboys whirlwind Micah Parsons is active for tonight's game against the Giants. He entered the day questionable because of an illness but should be in any IDP lineups where possible.

The Dolphins estimated their 1st practice report of the week Monday, ahead of Thursday night's visit to Cincinnati. That included listing QB Tua Tagovailoa as a non-participant. HC Mike McDaniel says the QB is dealing with soreness in his back and ankle and that they were awaiting further test results Monday. Tagovailoa did return to Sunday's game after leaving for a concussion check -- what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport later reported as more of a neck/back injury -- but we'll see about his availability for Thursday.

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk saw 8 targets in a Week 3 loss to Denver. That tied Deebo Samuel for the team lead. From 3 yards out, Aiyuk caught Jimmy Garoppolo’s only TD pass on a well-designed play where Deebo walled off the nearest defender. While George Kittle’s return adds volatility, Aiyuk remains an ascending talent with a high weekly ceiling. Don’t be surprised if he’s in the WR3 mix for Sunday’s divisional tilt with the Rams.

Chargers WR Jalen Guyton suffered an ACL tear in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, according to multiple reports, ending his season. Guyton played just 29 total snaps through 3 weeks, with 3 of his 4 targets coming against Jacksonville.

The Ravens have signed EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul to a 1-year deal worth up to $5 million, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Baltimore has just 7 sacks through 3 games, despite facing a league-high 141 pass attempts. The only Raven with 2+ sacks so far is EDGE Justin Houston, who left Sunday's win over the Patriots with a groin injury. We'd bet on JPP quickly working into the rotation, though we'll need to see his playing time before considering him for IDP lineups.

Vikings HC Kevin O'Connell called RB Dalvin Cook "day to day" with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of Sunday's contest, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That follows in line with initial reports on Cook's status. It sounds like Minnesota expects Cook to be available for Week 4, but we'll have to track his status through the practice week.

49ers TE George Kittle made his season debut Week 3 at Denver but managed only 4 catches for 28 yards. He saw 5 targets — a 17.2% share — and posted a strong 82% route rate. Brighter days are ahead for Kittle, assuming he can dodge further injury woes. Next up is a meeting with the Rams.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Monday that RB Joe Mixon "nicked up" his ankle in the win over the Jets but "will be good to go" for Thursday night's game vs. the Dolphins. We'll keep an eye on Mixon's practice participation over the next couple of days, but he can be penciled into Week 4 fantasy lineups for now.

Lions HC Dan Campbell confirmed on Monday that RB D'Andre Swift could miss some time with his left shoulder injury. Campbell insinuated that Swift might be allowed to heal up through Detroit's Week 6 bye. That'd mean he'd miss the next 2 games vs. the Seahawks and Patriots. We'll continue to track the situation, but Swift owners should start making other plans for the next 2 weeks. Jamaal Williams figures to land in RB2 territory in our Week 4 Rankings.

Bucs HC Todd Bowles said Monday that he expects WR Julio Jones (knee) to return for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. Jones is reportedly working through a partially torn PCL but had a shot to play this past week. So, barring a setback this week, he should be ready to go for Sunday night. How much he does in practice this week will go a long way toward determining whether we can trust him in fantasy lineups.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson led the 49ers’ backfield in Week 3, rushing 12 times for 75 yards. He gashed the Broncos for an explosive 37-yard run but averaged 3.4 yards on his 11 other attempts. Deebo Samuel mixed in with 5 carries for 6 yards; Jordan Mason saw only 1 attempt. In total, Wilson handled 73% of the backfield snaps with Elijah Mitchell and Ty Davis-Price sidelined. Wilson did fumble after catching his 3rd pass of the night on San Francisco’s final drive, but we don’t see it changing his role going forward. Next up is a home date with the Rams.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie finished Week 3 with 7 catches for 76 yards and 1 score. Josh Allen chucked it 63 times, which helps explain the big day. McKenzie’s target share amounted to just 14.2%. He scored near the goal line on a crossing route that found him wide open vs. the blitz. All told, McKenzie played 47 snaps — only 2 more than Jamison Crowder. Crowder mustered only 1 catch on 3 targets.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle recorded 4 grabs for 102 yards in a Week 3 win over Buffalo. He was on his way to busting before catching downfield balls of 32 and 45 yards in the 4th quarter, the latter of which came on 3rd and 22. His 6 targets (on 20 team pass attempts) paced the team on a day that turned up only 39(!) offensive plays. That helped contribute to a dud from Tyreek Hill (2-33), who had an 8-yard catch wiped out on a questionable penalty. Waddle and Hill remain top-15 fantasy WRs moving forward.
