NFL Recent Player News
|9/29/2014||Frank Gore, RB|
|Gore ran for a season-high 119 yards on 24 carries in Sunday's win over Philadelphia. He also was on the receiving end of a 55-yard touchdown pass.
Analysis: Owners disgruntled over Gore's six carries last week were much happier this time around. He has 258 rushing yards and a TD through four games.
|9/29/2014||LeSean McCoy, RB|
|McCoy turned in another disappointing performance with 10 carries for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to San Francisco.
Analysis: You've undoubtedly become impatient if you're a McCoy owner, but you likely invested too high of a draft pick to deal him already. He's too talented to stay in this slump for very long, especially considering the offense he's playing in.
|9/29/2014||Colin Kaepernick, QB|
|Kaepernick was 17 of 30 for 218 yards, two TDs and one interception in Sunday's win over Philadelphia. He also ran seven times for 58 yards, including a season-long scamper of 58 yards.
Analysis: Kaepernick has a 91.2 passer rating through four games and has also been a weapon on the ground with 187 yards on 33 carries.
|9/29/2014||Nick Foles, QB|
|Foles had a rough performance in Sunday's loss to San Francisco, going 21 of 43 for 195 yards with two interceptions.
Analysis: The 42.3 passer rating marked the second-lowest of Foles' career as a starter. He'll look to bounce back next week at home versus St. Louis.
|9/29/2014||Jarius Wright, WR|
|Wright announced his arrival as a presence in fantasy football with eight catches for 132 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
Analysis: It's not clear what level Wright will be able to produce at on a week-to-week basis, but he showcased some impressive potential Sunday.
|9/29/2014||Roddy White, WR|
|White made four receptions for 73 yards including his second TD of the season in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Bothered by a nagging hamstring injury, White has 14 catches for 187 yards and two TDs through three games this season.
|9/29/2014||Julio Jones, WR|
|Jones recorded season lows of six receptions for 82 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
Analysis: It was a bit of a disappointment for Jones owners. Then again many will gladly accept a receiver with an eight-point floor in leagues that utilize standard scoring.
|9/29/2014||Matt Asiata, RB|
|Asiata recorded 78 yards and three TDs on 20 carries Sunday versus Atlanta.
Analysis: Asiata isn't overly impressive to watch but he's a solid producer in fantasy, especially for those looking for fill-ins in Adrian Peterson's absence. He also remained a factor in the passing game, catching three balls for 22 yards.
|9/29/2014||Jerick McKinnon, RB|
|McKinnon ran 18 times for 135 yards, including a long run of 55 in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
Analysis: After getting only five carries in the first three games, McKinnon seized his opportunity to showcase his explosiveness. He's worth an add in most leagues.
|9/29/2014||Antone Smith, RB|
|Smith ran four times for 62 yards - including a 48-yard touchdown scamper - in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Smith has 119 yards on 10 carries this year and could be someone to keep an eye on.
|9/29/2014||Matt Ryan, QB|
|Ryan was 25 of 41 for 298 yards, three touchdowns and two picks in a 41-28 loss at Minnesota Sunday.
Analysis: Ryan owns a 100.3 passer rating through his first four games, though both the Falcons and fantasy owners alike would like to see him throw fewer interceptions. He's been picked off five times and would finish with 20 interceptions at this rate.
|9/29/2014||Ben Roethlisberger, QB|
|Roethlisberger completed 29 of 40 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's shocking 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Roethlisberger now has five TDs and no picks over the last two weeks, during which he's completed 72.9 percent of his passes. He'll try to stay hot at Jacksonville next week.
|9/29/2014||Toby Gerhart, RB|
|Gerhart saved his fantasy day with a one-yard touchdown plunge in Sunday's loss at San Diego.
Analysis: Gerhart carried the ball 10 times for 32 yards and lost a fumble. He's averaging an atrocious 2.6 yards per carry and should only be started in the deepest of leagues at this point.
|9/29/2014||Blake Bortles, QB|
|Making his first NFL start, Bortles completed 29 for 37 passes for 253 yards with a touchdown and two picks in Sunday's 33-14 loss at San Diego.
Analysis: Bortles looked great at times but also made a few costly mistakes. He doesn't have much fantasy value aside from two-quarterback leagues.
|9/29/2014||Keenan Allen, WR|
|Allen broke out in a big way with 10 catches for 135 yards in Sunday's rout of Jacksonville.
Analysis: It was only a matter of time for Allen, who had been limited to 12 catches for 109 yards over the first three weeks. The window to buy low on the former Cal standout has likely closed at this point.
|9/29/2014||Eddie Royal, WR|
|Royal had another huge fantasy day in Sunday's 33-14 win over Jacksonville.
Analysis: Royal had five catches for 105 yards and two more TDs, giving him four over the last two weeks. While the touchdowns may not always be there, Royal should continue to have a significant role in the Chargers' offense going forward.
|9/29/2014||Philip Rivers, QB|
|Rivers threw for 377 yards and three more touchdowns in Sunday's 33-14 win over Jacksonville.
Analysis: Rivers now has nine scores and just one interception on the year. His 114.5 passer rating ranks first in the NFL.
|9/29/2014||Ryan Tannehill, QB|
|Tannehill completed 23 of 31 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-14 win over Oakland.
Analysis: It was an impressive showing for Tannehill, who failed to impress over the first three weeks. While he may never put up eye-popping numbers, he remains a very safe play in two-quarterback leagues.
|9/29/2014||Andre Holmes, WR|
|Holmes had five catches for 74 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Miami.
Analysis: Holmes, who was targeted a whopping 12 times, could be someone to keep an eye on going forward.
|9/29/2014||Lamar Miller, RB|
|Miller carried the ball 12 times for 64 yards and two TDs in Sunday's 38-14 rout of Oakland.
Analysis: Miller is averaging a very impressive 5.7 yards per carry to rank third in the league. He should continue to carry the load until Knowshon Moreno returns from injury.
