As Rob Gronkowski's role returns, so does his Fantasy value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:30 pm ET) If you drafted Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, chances are you did so knowing he might not be 100 percent healthy at the start of the season. The fact that he ranks seventh among tight ends in Fantasy scoring has to feel like a bonus for those Fantasy owners who took a change on him this year.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels told reporters Tuesday that he thinks Gronkowski will be able to do a little more each week moving forward, and that can only be a good sign. He hasn't quite been the stud we expected, but that is mostly because the team has been keeping him off the field. Gronkowski played a season-high 59 percent of the team's offensive snaps in Week 3, up from 44 and 42 percent in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively.

Still, he saw less of the field in Week 3 than Michael Hoomanawanui, so there is plenty of room for him to grow in the offense. As crazy as it might sound, Gronkowski might just be one of the best buy-low candidates in the league. He was the second tight end taken on average in drafts this season, and can still live up to that billing as he gets closer to full health. 


Jay Gruden: Kirk Cousins could become permanent starter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:29 pm ET) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Kirk Cousins has a chance to start even after Robert Griffin III returns from his ankle injury, reports the New York Daily News. "Crazy things have happened in the NFL," Gruden said. 

"I'm not going to discount anything."

In two games, Cousins has thrown for 677 yards and five touchdowns with one interception. He'll face the Giants at home Thursday.


FFT blog: You can start Kirk Cousins this week
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:23 pm ET) While researching players for the Week 4 edition of the Fantasy Cheat Sheet (coming soon here!), I started off with a look at Kirk Cousins. And I just couldn't resist adding more than 2 cents on the Washington signal-caller. 

As I explain in my recent blog post, I like Cousins this week. In fact, I like him enough to start him. Here's a snippet:

"We can now see why the Redskins liked the fit of Cousins in this offense as his accuracy is better than Griffin's. It doesn't clinch him as a rock-solid Fantasy starter week after week. This week we'll take a chance on him, even against the Giants (who have been good against the pass) on a short week."

At the moment I have him at No. 11 and Jamey Eisenberg has him at No. 12 in our rankings. A start for both of us!

FFT Blog: Teddy Bridgewater's debut in review
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:17 pm ET) Over at the Fantasy Football Today blog, I broke down Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's debut against the Saints last week. Included are video breakdowns of some of Bridgewater's best plays, plus some discussion of what he needs to work on: 

"He showed fine arm strength on that throw to Jennings, and actually struggled more with his accuracy on short throws, as when he rushed a pair of passes to Jerick McKinnon in the flats in the second quarter, both resulting in incompletions."

Check out the rest over at the blog to determine if you want to pick up Bridgewater now that he's running the show in Minnesota.

Alfred Morris practices in full
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:57 pm ET) Redskins running back Alfred Morris practiced fully Tuesday despite a knee injury. He'll be fine for Thursday's home game against the Giants.

Vernon Davis says injured ankle is 'way better'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:54 pm ET) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, who sat out Week 3 due to an ankle injury, was walking without limping Tuesday and told reporters his injured ankle is "way better." On Monday, coach John Harbaugh said he was "optimistic" about Davis returning to action Week 4 against the Eagles. 

John Brown's snaps expected to increase
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:52 pm ET) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown played 35 of 67 snaps in the win over the 49ers and caught a pair of touchdowns. ESPN.com expects Brown's snaps to "continue to increase every game as Arizona figures out more ways to utilize his speed."

Brown has nine catches for 109 yards and three touchdowns through three games. Arizona is on a bye and visits Denver in Week 5.


Falcons adjust practice squad

(2:42 pm ET) The Falcons signed offensive tackle Reid Fragel to the practice squad and released offensive tackle Terren Jones from the squad.

Rob Gronkowski 'inching closer' to his old role
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:28 pm ET) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski played a season-high 42 snaps Week 3 and is "inching closer toward being a steady contributor to the offense," reports ESPN.com.

"I definitely think that Rob has made some plays for us. I certainly think that will continue and hope that will continue," offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said. "We are trying to work him back into the game plan to an overall level where he can contribute the most.

"And I think each week we have done a little bit more, and hopefully we can continue to do that. I think that any time you are talking about a player who is coming off a situation like Gronk was, you have to be smart and you do what you can do. I’m happy with the things that he has done so far, and we will continue to add more as we go through the year."
