Montee Ball not much of a factor in Week 3 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:13 pm ET) Broncos running back Montee Ball wasn't much of a factor in an overtime loss to the Seahawks in Week 3.

Ball coughed up the rock on the first offensive play of the game. He ripped an 8-yard run before he was stripped by Kam Chancellor. Ball was limited to 14 carries for 38 yards, averaging 2.7 yards per attempt. He caught two of the three passes thrown his way for six yards.

Ball has 165 rushing yards through three games. The Broncos will be on a bye before returning to action in Week 5 at home against Arizona.


Cyrus Gray scores first career touchdown in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:59 pm ET) Chiefs running back Cyrus Gray wasn't much of a factor in the running game, but managed to score his first career touchdown in garbage time against Miami in Week 3.

Gray barreled into the end zone from 6 yards out with 13 seconds remaining in the game. He took four handoffs for 18 yards and a score in a 34-15 victory. Three of his four carries came on the final drive of the game for the Chiefs.

The Chiefs will host the Patriots in Week 4.


Joe McKnight scores a pair of receiving touchdowns vs. Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:55 pm ET) Chiefs running back Joe McKnight made his presence felt in the passing game, scoring a pair of touchdowns in a Week 3 win over the Dolphins in Miami.

McKnight caught a swing pass from Alex Smith for a gain of 13 yards, followed by a 26-yard catch on the ensuing drive in the second quarter. He followed that up with an 11-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. He capped off his big afternoon with a four-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter.

McKnight caught six of the seven passes thrown his way for a team-high 64 yards and two touchdowns. He had one carry for three yards in a 34-15 victory.

The Chiefs will host the Patriots in Week 4.


Knile Davis has a career day as a starter in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:51 pm ET) Chiefs running back Knile Davis got the start and enjoyed a career day, registering his first 100-yard rushing game in Week 3 against Miami.

Davis gashed Miami's defense for a 21-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He took 32 handoffs for 132 yards and a touchdown on the ground, averaging 4.1 yards per carry -- all a career high for the 22-year-old. He finished without a reception despite being targeted once in a 34-15 victory.

Davis could shoulder the load again in Week 4 at home against New England, depending on the status of Jamaal Charles. Charles was a limited participant in practice and nearly played in Week 3.


Lamar Miller surpasses 100-yard mark in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:43 pm ET) With Knowshon Moreno sidelined, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller shouldered the load in a productive Week 3 performance against the Chiefs.

Miller, who entered the game averaging less than five yards per carry, ripped a 20-yard run in the second quarter. He finished the first half with 50 yards on seven carries. He followed that up by gashing Kansas City's defense for a 24-yard run in the third quarter. Miller took 15 handoffs for 108 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per grab. He also caught four of his five targets for 24 yards in a 34-15 defeat.

Miller has 213 yards on the ground through three weeks. He will look for his second 100-yard performance in Week 5 against the Raiders in London.


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.


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.

Marshawn Lynch scores game-winning touchdown in overtime


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:12 pm ET) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch came through in the clutch for his team, scoring the game-ending touchdown in overtime against the Broncos in Week 3.

Lynch finished 2013 with two receiving touchdowns. He matched last year's total, catching his second touchdown of the season, a 5-yard grab late in the second quarter. He ripped a 6-yard touchdown run in overtime, securing a 26-20 victory.

Lynch took 26 handoffs for 88 yards and a touchdown, averaging 3.4 yards per carry. He was targeted five times and finished with three catches for 40 yards and a score. He has 234 yards and three touchdowns on the ground this season.

Seattle has a bye before returning for a Week 5 matchup at Washington.


Darren McFadden denied a touchdown


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7:32 pm ET) Raiders running back Darren McFadden, getting another start in place of the injured Maurice Jones-Drew, had a modest rushing total Week 3 at New England, picking up 59 yards on 18 carries. He also had four catches for 6 yards. He nearly scored a game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter, plunging into the end zone from 6 yards out, but the play was overturned by a holding penalty. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr threw an interception on the very next play.

Jones-Drew's status for Week 4 is at this point unknown. The Raiders have a favorable matchup against the Dolphins, who gave up 132 yards to Chiefs backup running back Knile Davis in Week 3.


Steelers reveal Week 3 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:24 pm ET) The Steelers declared running back Dri Archer (ankle), wideout Martavis Bryant (shoulder), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, guard Ramon Foster (ankle) and cornerback B.W. Webb inactive for Sunday night's game in Carolina.

Carlos Hyde nets second rushing TD in Week 3 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7:20 pm ET) 49ers running back Carlos Hyde managed just three carries Sunday against the Cardinals, but one of those carries resulted in a touchdown during a 23-14 loss. Hyde rushed for 13 yards, while totaling two catches for minus-2 yards.

Hyde netted his second rushing touchdown of the season on a 6-yard run in the second quarter, which gave San Francisco a 14-6 lead. The rookie has 63 rushing yards on 14 carries through three games.

The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


Shane Vereen back to catching passes


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7:19 pm ET) After going without a catch Week 2 at Minnesota, Patriots running back Shane Vereen came back with four Week 3 against Oakland. Unfortunately, he picked up just 17 yards on those four catches.

His six targets did tie him with tight end Rob Gronkowski for third-most on the team, however, and he also had seven carries for 20 yards. Wide receiver Julian Edelman remained quarterback Tom Brady's preferred target underneath or otherwise, catching 10 passes for 84 yards.

Vereen will look to solidify his role on offense Week 4 at Kansas City.


Frank Gore gets only six carries Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7:15 pm ET) 49ers running back Frank Gore didn't get many chances to make plays during a 23-14 loss Week 3 at Arizona. He finished with just six carries for 10 yards and had no receptions.

The six carries are the fewest amount Gore had since totaling nine in Week 2 last season, when he had nine carries for 16 yards in a 29-3 loss at Seattle. 

The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


Jerick McKinnon not a big factor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7:10 pm ET) Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon spelled starter Matt Asiata occasionally Week 3 at New Orleans but again didn't make a big contribution statistically. Most impressively, his five targets tied for third most on the team, but he caught just two passes for 9 yards. He also ran twice for minus-1.

The Vikings host the Falcons in Week 4.


Andre Ellington rushes for 62 yards in Week 3 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7:10 pm ET) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington had a team-high 62 rushing yards on 18 carries during a 23-14 win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. His longest carry went 20 yards. 

Ellington, who was targeted four times, finished with three catches for 13 yards. His longest reception went 7 yards.

Ellington has 206 rushing yards on 46 carries through three games. However, he has no rushing or receiving touchdowns. 

The Cardinals are on a bye Week 4 before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.


Panthers announce Week 3 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:10 pm ET) The Panthers declared running back DeAngelo Williams (thigh), receiver Jerricho Cotchery (thigh), running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh), quarterback Joe Webb, safety Tre Boston, guard Andrew Norwell and offensive tackle David Foucault inactive for Sunday night's game against Pittsburgh.

DeAngelo Williams a no-go on Sunday night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:02 pm ET) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Steelers with a thigh injury. It's the second straight game he'll miss.

Williams was listed as questionable. He'll aim to return Week 4 at Baltimore.


Chris Polk scores on 102-yard return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:59 pm ET) Eagles running back Chris Polk didn't see the field on offense, but found other ways to make his impact felt in a 37-34 win over Washington in Week 3 Sunday. 

Polk got the Eagles on the board for their first score of the game with his 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter. He finished the game with 137 yards on two returns to go along with his first special teams touchdown.


Jaguars backup runners contribute little Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:56 pm ET) The Jaguars backup running backs didn't do much Week 3 against the Colts.

Denard Robinson actually led the team in rushing, but gained just 33 yards. He was targeted in the passing game one time, but failed to come up with the ball. Robinson received eight rushing attempts.

Jordan Todman got one carry, picking up 10 yards.

They'll look for more Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Several Saints play bit roles in victory over Vikings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:46 pm ET) Wide receiver Kenny Stills led a contingent of Saints that made minor contributions to their defeat of Minnesota on Sunday.

Stills finished with four catches for 38 yards. Robert Meachen had one reception for 23 yards while backup tight end Benjamin Watson pitched in with a catch for 10 yards.

Little-used running backs Travaris Cadet and Austin Johnson added nine and two yards on the ground, respectively.


Bishop Sankey's time might come soon


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:46 pm ET) By virtue of his 10-carry, 61-yard outing Sunday at Cincinnati (along with a 9-yard catch), Titans rookie rusher Bishop Sankey could be closing in on taking over the primary rushing job from veteran Shonn Greene. In Sunday's loss Greene scored but had 33 yards on 10 carries. 

Sankey has 18 carries for 89 yards, a 4.9 rushing average, but Greene has 30 carries for 144 yards, good for 4.8 average. So perhaps there could be something closer to a split next week at Indianapolis. Now might be the time to buy low on Sankey if not claim him off of waivers. 


Toby Gerhart does little Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:43 pm ET) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart didn't not perform well Week 3 against the Colts.

Gerhart had nine carries for 32 yards. He also caught two passes for 31 yards during the contest. With his team down 30-0 at half, Gerhart didn't get many opportunities in the running game. He'll look for more Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Matt Asiata's one big play as receiver


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:40 pm ET) Vikings running back Matt Asiata, making his second start in place of Adrian Peterson, didn't do anything show-stopping Week 3 at New Orleans. His one big play was a 41-yard reception in the second quarter, but he netted minus-5 yards on his other two catches. He was the Vikings second-most targeted receiver with six looks.

As a rusher, he never gained more than 8 yards, though he had just 12 carries total, still twice as many as any other Viking. He ran for 35 yards in all.

Asiata's opportunities were limited in the second half, when the Vikings had only three possessions. They were forced to throw mostly on the third one, trailing by multiple scores.

The Vikings host the Falcons in Week 4.


Report: Danny Woodhead needs season-ending surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is likely done for the season, FOXSports.com reports, after suffering a serious ankle injury in Week 3 against the Bills.

Woodhead injured the ankle when he was tackled on his first run of the game, and the injury will likely require surgery, according to the report. He has been diagnosed with a severe high ankle sprain and fractured fibula, injuries that will likely end his campaign.

At this point, the team has not given an update on his status.  


Benny Cunningham manages 37 yards in Week 3 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:25 pm ET) Rams running back Benny Cunningham managed just 29 yards on nine carries and added one reception for five yards in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Cunningham received more action in Week 3 than he had in the first two weeks, getting nine carries to 12 for starter Zac Stacy, but he failed to impress with his totes while the starter broke off 5.6 yards per carry. Cunningham averaged 5.6 yards per carry last season and could work his way into more carries if he can approach that level in the coming weeks. The Rams are off in Week 4 before facing the Eagles.
