Kenbrell Thompkins, Danny Amendola hardly factor
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:32 pm ET) Patriots wide receivers Kenbrell Thompkins and Danny Amendola each got just one target Week 3 against Oakland, and the only one to do anything with his was Thompkins, who caught a 16-yard pass.

Thompkins had five catches in Week 1, and Amendola had three. The two have combined for just one since then. 


Alex Smith throws three touchdowns in comfortable win over Miami
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:31 pm ET) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith found the end zone three times in a Week 3 win over the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.

Smith hooked up with Travis Kelce for a 20-yards score in the second quarter. In the second half, he found Joe McKnight for scored of 11 and 4 yards. Smith did just enough to manage the game for the Chiefs, completing 19 of 25 passes for 186 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 34-15 victory.

Through three weeks, Smith has compiled 643 passing yards to go along with a 4-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He will look to build off this performance heading into a Week 5 Monday night matchup at home against New England.


Brandon Bolden, Timothy Wright contribute little
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:29 pm ET) Patriots running back Brandon Bolden ran twice for 4 yards Week 3 against Oakland. Tight end Timothy Wright caught the only pass thrown his way for 20 yards.

The two will continue to play just a supporting role Week 4 at Kansas City.


Michael Floyd bounces back from one-catch game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8:26 pm ET) A week after being held to one catch, Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd had much better rapport with backup quarterback Drew Stanton during a 23-14 win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Floyd totaled a team-high 114 receiving yards on five catches.

Floyd's longest reception went for 45 yards. He also had a 36-yard reception on the team's opening drive and all his receptions went for at least 10 yards.

Floyd, who was targeted nine times, had a chance for two touchdowns, but both times the play was broken up by the defense. The second time would have resulted in a 38-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but the pass from Stanton was slightly underthrown and it made for an easy pass defense.

He has surpassed 100 yards in two of three games. The Cardinals are on a bye Week 4 before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.


Brandon LaFell catches first passes
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:26 pm ET) Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell, who was shut out in each of his first two games with his new team, finally made an impact Week 3 against Oakland. He caught four passes for 46 yards and was second on the team with eight targets.

LaFell also had six targets in Week 1, though he failed to connect with quarterback Tom Brady then. He'll look to build off this performance Week 4 at Kansas City.


Russell Wilson scores twice in Super Bowl rematch
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:25 pm ET) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson found the end zone twice and did just enough to manage an overtime victory over the Broncos at home in Week 3.

Wilson fired a 39-yard touchdown pass to Ricardo Lockette and found Marshawn Lynch for a 5-yard strike -- all in the second quarter. He was picked off by Chris Harris in the fourth quarter for his only blemish of the afternoon. He bounced back and led his team to a 13-play, 80-yard drive which resulted in a game-winning touchdown run from Lynch in overtime.

Wilson completed 24 of 34 passes for 258 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. He was sacked three times. He rushed for 40 yards on nine carries.

Seattle is on a bye before returning to action in Week 5 at Washington.


Four Raiders make small contributions
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:23 pm ET) Raiders running back Latavius Murray, wide receiver Andre Holmes, tight end Brian Leonhardt and running back Jamize Olawale contributed little statistically Week 3 at New England. Murray ran three times for 1 yard, and Holmes, Leonhardt and Olawale each caught a pass for 29, 7 and 4 yards, respectively.

Peyton Manning cracks 300-yard mark in overtime loss to Seattle
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:19 pm ET) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning surpassed the 300-yard mark in a Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks in Seattle.

Manning scored on a 3-yard shovel pass to Julius Thomas in the third quarter but was intercepted late in the fourth quarter by Kam Chancellor. He bounced back and orchestrated a six-play, 80-yard drive capped off by a 26-yard strike in the end zone to Jacob Tamme with 41 seconds remaining to send the game to overtime.

Manning compiled 303 yards through the air while completing 31 of 49 passes. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 85.7 passer rating. He was sacked once in a 26-20 defeat.

Manning has 814 passing yards, with eight touchdowns and one interception through three weeks. The Broncos will have a bye before hosting the Cardinals in Week 5.


Quiet day for Mychal Rivera
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:16 pm ET) Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera, who was coming off a five-catch performance against Houston in Week 2, had his worst statistical performance of the season Week 3 at New England, catching two passes for 11 yards. He was targeted four times.

River has yet to go for more than 31 yards in a game.


Anquan Boldin held to less than 40 yards again
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8:14 pm ET) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was a perfect 6 for 6 on passes thrown his way Sunday against the Cardinals. However, he only managed 36 receiving yards in a 23-14 loss.

Boldin's longest reception Sunday went for 7 yards. He came into the game averaging 107.3 receiving yards in three career games against Arizona.

Boldin doesn't have a touchdown in three games to open the season. He's been held to less than 40 receiving yards in two straight games. The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.
