TUESDAY UPDATES

Running Back Movement

Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks Up

Thomas Rawls will miss at least a month, and if Michael continues to run effectively, the injured starter may not have a job when he returns.

Jeremy Langford, Chicago Bears Down

Langford escaped Sunday night with just an ankle sprain, but he's still unlikely to play, and he was being outplayed by Jordan Howard anyway. This is a more fluid situation than most.

Jordan Howard, Chicago Bears Up

Jeremy Langford is expected to miss time with an ankle sprain, thrusting the rookie runner into the spotlight for an audition.

Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs Up

Ware was given a bump that may be temporary based on Jamaal Charles still not being on the field. JC was closer to returning last week, but he's not a lock for Week 4. Keep in mind, this ranking will change based on Charles' status. The injured veteran was not lowered yet, but he will come down substantially with a Week 4 inactive status.

Rashad Jennings, New York Giants Down

Jennings should see more playing time with the loss of Shane Vereen (removed from rankings), but a cast on his hand will prevent the vet from being effective, assuming he can even play until it is removed.

Orleans Darkwa and Paul Perkins, New York Giants Up

The Shane Vereen injury puts Darkwa on the field and possibly keeps him there. It comes down to how trusting the coaching staff is in rookie Paul Perkins. The rook entered the rankings and has to prove he can protect Eli Manning to earn increased playing time. Stay tuned for more changes from this backfield.

Kenyan Drake, Miami Dolphins Up

Drake appears to be the short-term starter while Arian Foster recovers from a groin strain. The rookie will share touches with Damien Williams in a pass-first system.

Dwayne Washington, Detroit Lions Up

Washington goes up slightly based on volume. His 11-touch, 35-yard Week 3 showing wasn't particularly inspiring, but Detroit has a better line in 2016 than last year's league-worst rushing attack ran behind. My optimism is guarded.

Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks Down

Two major leg injuries in less than a year make Rawls super risky whenever he does return. It looks like he'll be out at least a month, and Rawls could come back to not having a job if Christine Michael plays well.

Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens Up

Market correction ... Dixon was lowered in this week's original release but has been raised slightly to give credence to his improving health status. John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Marc Trestman are very loyal to veterans, which extends Justin Forsett's leash, in conjunction with Dixon needing to get up to speed after missing so much time.

Jalen Richard, Oakland Raiders Down

Upon secondary review, Richard came down slightly ... too dependent on big plays.

Tight End Movement

Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts Down

Following a Week 1 tease, Allen has fallen behind Jack Doyle in targets and production. Allen is naturally a risky player based on his big-play potential and injury history.

Richard Rodgers, Green Bay Packers Up

Jared Cook has a high ankle sprain and may miss significant time. The lumbering Rodgers will see ample looks and deserves matchup-play consideration while Cook is out.

Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts Up

Doyle caught all six of his targets in Week 3 and is emerging as a viable fantasy weapon while Donte Moncrief remains out of action.

Jared Cook, Green Bay Packers Down

Cook could miss several weeks with a high ankle sprain, depending on its severity.

ORIGINAL UPDATES

OK, I have to preface this week's release with a little insight to the process. After David created the preseason rankings, they were handed off to me for the rest of the season. Any two people are not going to perfectly see eye-to-eye, so I left most of his rankings intact for the first couple games. After three games of play, some things have become evident through playing time and other changes have been made based on my personal preferences.

Adjusting for injuries and unforeseen playing time changes are easy in comparison to trying to decide just how "right" I think I am in relation to how "wrong" I think DMD's preseason projection for a player happened to be ... after all, as I mentioned, I get the assistance of seeing three weeks' worth of action.

Enough of the intro ... on to the meat and potatoes. Some of the explanations this week will be briefer than usual based on the overwhelming number of changes. In the event you have specific questions or want me to elaborate on a ranking, I implore you to contact me via Twitter (@Cory_Bonini) or via direct message on The Huddle's forums.

Quarterback Movement

Tom Brady, New England Patriots Up

David and I didn't see eye to eye here. The rest of the way, Brady will be a top-five quarterback, barring an injury. David's ranking was based on projected stats, which put him at 14th after the suspension was docked.

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons Up

Upon further review, I had to bump him up with respect to his hot start. He was a strong fantasy quarterback for most of his career, so this is more of a "benefit of the doubt" ranking before his Monday night showdown with Drew Brees.

Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars Down

Bortles and Co. look out of sorts through three games. Week 2 production was via garbage time, and Week 3 wasn't exactly pretty.

Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks Down

Early reports suggest he suffered a sprained medial collateral knee ligament, which could cost him several games (or none depending on the severity). Subject to change.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, New York Jets Down

Six interceptions? Yeesh. I don't think this is an overreaction (down from 15th). Fitzpatrick has been generally off since returning from his lengthy contract dispute, which is partially why DMD ranked him in the mid-20s entering the year.

Trevor Siemian, Denver Broncos Up

Week 3's monster game was a great way to endear him to coaches and keep Paxton Lynch far from the starting job.

Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles Up

Wentz was great for the Eagles through two wins but not so much for fantasy owners ... that all changed with the third win. He's legit.

Cody Kessler, Cleveland Browns Up

Kessler entered the rankings based on the injury to Josh McCown (who was removed). Head coach Hue Jackson played musical quarterbacks in Week 3, but it will be Kessler's job sooner than later.

Blaine Gabbert, San Francisco 49ers Down

Call it a hunch, but there is no way Chip Kelly can continue to play Gabbert. I will be shocked if he makes it to their Week 8 bye.

Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers Up

Sooner than later, Kaepernick will be standing (maybe kneeling) in the huddle.

Case Keenum, Los Angeles Rams Down

Much like with the 49ers' quarterback debacle, how much longer can Rams coach Jeff Fisher continue to trot Keenum out there? As long as the Rams win, in spite of him, really, Fisher will remain stubborn. It's only a matter of time.

Trevone Boykin, Seattle Seahawks Up

Boykin entered the rankings with a generic placement in the event Russell Wilson is indeed out for an extended period of time.

Running Back Movement

Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams Down

Scored twice and had the best game of his season, yet he goes down in the rankings? Yep. Look at the upcoming schedule. Gurley is too dependent on touchdowns and chunk plays that haven't been there to remain ranked No. 1.

DeMarco Murray, Tennessee Titans Up

Murray has been a yardage hog and finally found the end zone in Week 3. As long as he remains healthy -- a dubious detail -- he should be a studly PPR back.

Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers Up

Way too reliant on finding the end zone ... That said, Gordon benefits from not having Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead.

Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Down

I docked him a few games worth of ranking based on his current injury situation.

Theo Riddick, Detroit Lions Up

Ameer Abdullah's likely season-ending foot injury led to his dismissal from the rankings and an increase in Riddick's worth. The pass-catcher is a terrible running back, despite it being his position's namesake. PPR owners have to like what he offers, though.

Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks Down

He was lowered a few spots based on his injury. Rawls is an unknown going forward and is subject to change with fluidity.

Charles Sims, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Up

Doug Martin's injury, along with Sims' receiving prowess, led to a minor bump in his placement.

LeGarrette Blount, New England Patriots Up

The beastly back was increased several places, although I have to admit I am not entirely sure what to expect once Tom Brady returns. Blount is playing so well, regardless.

Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks Up

I have made it no secret that I don't have a high opinion of Michael, but he is slowly converting me. It all comes down to how long Thomas Rawls misses.

Jerick McKinnon, Minnesota Vikings Up

Matt Asiata started the game, but McKinnon dwarfed him in touches (18 to 7). He is a matchup play until further notice.

Darren Sproles, Philadelphia Eagles Up

It's a true running back-by-committee approach in Philly. They enter their bye week, but you shouldn't expect changes to follow unless Ryan Mathews (ankle, hand) misses extended time.

Arian Foster, Miami Dolphins Down

Mainly because of his groin injury, and mostly because I don't trust him to stay healthy for a millisecond.

Matt Asiata, Minnesota Vikings Up

Adrian Peterson's absence leaves a hole in the backfield that mostly will be filled by Jerick McKinnon. Asiata may find goal line utility, and he's a reasonable bet to have one or two multi-score games.

Wendell Smallwood, Philadelphia Eagles Up

The rookie is seeing enough touches to matter to fantasy owners, and if Ryan Mathews suffers an injury (mysteriously had only two carries in Week 3), Smallwood is more than capable of contributing.

Dwayne Washington, Detroit Lions Up

Washington entered the lineup in lieu of Ameer Abdullah going on IR. The rookie is promising but raw.

Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens Down

Three games, three inactive statuses ... Dixon isn't going to live up to the preseason hype.

Wide Reciever Movement

A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals Down

I concede that my bullishness on his No. 2 overall ranking two weeks ago was a touch on the overzealous side. He's a top-five guy the rest of the way, but I'd rather OBJ or Julio Jones.

Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears Down

Combining injury concerns and Brian Hoyer starting, Jeffery had to come down from his No. 9 ranking.

Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions Up

Seriously, Jones has the feeling of being a top-10 player at this point. I'm not quite ready to do that just yet, but I can't blame you for feeling he is among the league's elite fantasy receivers (much different than the NFL's elite WRs).

Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos Up

Sanders' history and recent production warrants a bump into the range of low-end WR2/top-flight No. 3 receivers.

Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings Up

Per my conversations with some viewers, I maintain Diggs is a good receiver but not a great one -- yet. And I don't see yet being on the immediate horizon. He will not be worse than a WR3 in PPR most weeks, and as we saw in Week 2, he's capable of shredding a terrible secondary (see Marvin Jones in Week 3 vs. the same defense).

Golden Tate, Detroit Lions Down

Iron pyrite? Seems that way. Tate was given deference with his 19th overall WR ranking from the preseason, which had to be realigned with his current production. Consider his ranking more fluid than most.

DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins Up

Parker is healthy and contributing to fantasy lineups after missing the opener. He has been among Ryan Tannehill's top targets dating back into the middle of the 2015 season.

Tyrell Williams, San Diego Chargers Up

The second-year receiver was upped last week after we had confirmation on Keenan Allen's fate, and he gets another bump this week with Danny Woodhead being out for the remainder of the year. Williams should have weekly utility.

Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks Down

So far he has been the epitome of an all-or-nothing fantasy play, concluding with this week's goose egg after being questionable and on the field. He had a nifty 62-yard punt return, so it's not a health issue.

Donte Moncrief, Indianapolis Colts Down

A four- to six-week shoulder injury is the culprit here.

Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers Down

Frustrated yet? The supposed top target for Cam Newton heading into the season took a backseat to Kelvin Benjamin through two games, but Week 3 saw both players get blanked. Barring a major change in their offensive approach, Funchess is looking like a bust.

Terrelle Pryor, Cleveland Browns Up

He did everything in Week 3! Pryor was given a sizeable increase but is a volatile play with Cody Kessler starting at quarterback and Josh Gordon's impending return.

Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers Up

Adams benefits greatly from the attention paid to Green Bay's top targets, and if Jared Cook's injury is serious, Adams will see even more targets.

Anquan Boldin, Detroit Lions Up

Three scores in two weeks keeps the hope alive that this senior wideout still has enough in the tank to contribute regularly to fantasy lineups.

Corey Coleman, Cleveland Browns Down Coleman's broken hand will cost him several games. His ranking is bound to fluctuate.

Steve Smith, Baltimore Ravens Up

The ageless receiver was given a bump after a low preseason ranking that carried through given the severity of his 2015 injury.

Jamison Crowder, Washington Redskins Up

The primary slot receiver in Washington's offense has caught at least four balls in each of the first three weeks.

Adam Humphries, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Up

Not trying to take anything away from Humphries, but Tampa is throwing a ton, and he's seeing targets based on the attention paid to Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. No more Austin Seferian-Jenkins also contributed to his bump.

Kamar Aiken, Baltimore Ravens Down

Aiken fell further in the rankings and has no place on fantasy rosters at this time.

Laquon Treadwell, Minnesota Vikings Down

Save an injury, Treadwell's rookie season mostly will be spent as an onlooker. He was a healthy scratch in Week 3 and didn't see a target in the opener.

Tight End Movement

Eric Ebron, Detroit Lions Up

Three weeks into the season, Ebron remains healthy and a factor in the passing game. The position has proven to be weaker than expected for a variety of reasons, which accentuates his placement.

Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles Down

Philly is entering their bye week, so if Ertz isn't on the field come Week 5, he'll remain lowered.

Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings Up

Sam Bradford has taken a liking to the veteran, and the position has been a staple in Norv Turner offenses.

Cameron Brate, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Up

He was getting a boost based on the release of Austin Seferian-Jenkins, so scoring two times in Week 3 only cemented it.

Kicker Movement

Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens Up

Tucker was ranked too low entering the season based on the fears regarding this offense's countless uncertainties.

Josh Lambo, San Diego Chargers Up

This Bolt was given a jolt in the rankings because all of San Diego's injuries will lead to fewer touchdown chances.

Team Defense Movement

Minnesota Vikings Up

Thoroughly dominant. Need more? Look at what Carolina endured if you're in doubt -- three INTs, eight sacks, and a safety. Oh, and a punt return if those help your team.

Philadelphia Eagles Up

Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz has made his mark and deserves a lot of credit for transitioning a 3-4 into a 4-3 so quickly. It always takes more time to go the other direction, but this was nearly as impressive.
