by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday he is confident about running back DeAngelo Williams returning to action Week 4 at Baltimore after missing two games with a thigh injury. Rivera said Williams looked good in practice leading up to Week 3 against the Steelers, but he wasn't quite ready to play.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dan Bailey sets Cowboys record for consecutive FGs made
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:54 am ET) Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey extended his streak of consecutive field goals made to 28 during a 34-31 win Week 3 at St. Louis, which set a new franchise record. The previous mark was set by his former kicking coach, Chris Boniol, in 1996. 

"Knowing him, I know he’ll be happy for me, but he’ll also be telling me to keep stringing 'em together," Bailey said, per ESPN.


Report: Bears optimistic injured WRs play Monday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:46 am ET) The Bears remain optimistic wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) will play Monday against the Jets, barring any surprise setbacks, according to The Chicago Tribune. Both players are listed as questionable for Week 3.

Trent Richardson's playing time eclipses Ahmad Bradshaw's
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:43 am ET) For the first time all season, Trent Richardson saw the field more than Ahmad Bradshaw in Week 3 against the Jaguars, according to StampedeBlue.com, a Colts blog.

Richardson has shown signs of life over the last few games, and the team rewarded him with 38 of the team's 74 offensive plays. Bradshaw, on the other hand, was limited to just 25 snaps, despite averaging more yards per rush and reception. Entering Week 3, Bradshaw had played 29 more snaps than Richardson through the first two games.

The Colts are heavily invested in Richardson finding his way, and if Sunday's game is any reflection, the team is starting to reflect that in the workload. Keep an eye on this moving forward, Fantasy owners.  


Andrew Hawkins nearing a breakout
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:33 am ET) Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins is still unowned in 45 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues heading into Week 4, and that number needs to shrink.

Fantasy production is all about opportunities, and few receivers have had as many as Hawkins this season. He is currently in a three-way tie for third place in the NFL with 33 targets, and Hawkins has hauled in 63.6 percent of the passes thrown his way thus far. He has yet to find the end zone, but that should come with time -- he scored once every 20 targets in 2012, the only season he received anything like a full workload. He has already been pulled down five times in the red zone this season. 

The Browns have a decidedly vanilla offense, but Hawkins has earned the trust of quarterback Brian Hoyer, who has thrown 34.7 percent of his passes Hawkins' way. His massive workload should pay dividends soon enough, and you will want to be there when Hawkins starts finding the end zone. 


Report: Lions ready to make a change at kicker
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:22 am ET) The Lions are going to make a change at kicker, according to the Detroit Free Press. Detroit is planning to sign former Eagles kicker Alex Henery after kicker Nate Freese missed another field goal attempt Week 3.

Freese has converted just 43 percent of his field goal attempts (3 for 7) through three games. All four of his misses have come from 40-49 yards.
