Arizona Cardinals 27, Philadelphia Eagles 6
Eagles- Is it time to panic if you own QB Michael Vick (6 INT to 3 TD), LeSean McCoy (1 TD), DeSean Jackson (0 TDs) or Jeremy Maclin (injured)? Not yet. Proactive owners will seize this opportunity to buy low. Sure, the Eagles look in disarray right now, but the odds say that the Eagles offense will get it together. Take advantage of this situation.
Cardinals- Note to QB Kevin Kolb, if you throw it toward WR Larry Fitzgerald, he's probably going to catch it (9 targets, 9 catches). Someone needs to make sure to remind Kolb of this every gameday. Keep on avoiding the Cardinals' rushing tandem of Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells.

Atlanta Falcons 27, San Diego Chargers 3
Falcons- QB Matt Ryan is having a great start to the season, but will he be able to keep it up? I'm a believer. Ryan has the skill set and he has the weapons. He's not quite in the top tier of QBs, but I think he's on the same level as the Mannings and Matthew Stafford.
Chargers- I think we've seen this before. The Chargers are traditionally very slow starters, so their disappointing start shouldn't be surprising. Like the Eagles, I'd recommend buying low on QB Philip Rivers and TE Antonio Gates. The Chargers will get it together, so be proactive and start trying to acquire blue chip players on the cheap.
Houston Texans 31, Denver Broncos 25
Texans- Health will always be a question for QB Matt Schaub, but when he's healthy he's a Top 10 fantasy QB. Beyond Schaub, WR Andre Johnson and RB Arian Foster, the Texans don't really have many other consistent fantasy producers. TE Owen Daniels will give you 10 or so points a week (in PPR leagues). WR Kevin Walter will have the occasional great game, but he's too inconsistent to be depended on.
Broncos- RB Willis McGahee suffered a rib injury and his status for Week 4 is in question. If McGahee isn't fit to go, a committee of Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno will handle the Denver rushing attack. Don't bother picking any of them up, even if you own McGahee.
Oakland Raiders 34, Pittsburgh Steelers 31
Steelers- With the Pittsburgh run attack nonexistent, QB Ben Roethlisberger is thriving. I'm not sure how much better the run will be when RB Rashard Mendenhall gets back, but it certainly should improve. That will likely mean a slight reduction in Roethlisberger's production. If you have Big Ben, you may want to consider cashing him out while his value is sky high.
Raiders- WR Denarius Moore had a solid game (5 receptions, 45 yards and a score). Moore showed flashes of fantasy relevancy last year and is worth picking up if you need receiving depth. TE Brandon Myers continues to put up respectable PPR numbers (4 receptions for 55 yards). He's a decent bye week filler, with some upside.
Baltimore Ravens 31, New England Patriots 30
Patriots- The Pats, like many other so-called top offenses, are struggling. Now's not the time to panic. Keep your Pats active and if some desperate owner is trying to trade you QB Tom Brady or WR Wes Welker or WR Brandon Lloyd, make the deal.
Ravens- What a game by WR Torrey Smith (6 receptions, 127 yards and 2 TDs). After starting the season with two unproductive games, QB Joe Flacco decided to lean heavily on Smith (targeted 10 times). Smith is poised for a big season and should be depended on as a WR2.
Seattle Seahawks 14, Green Bay Packers 12
Packers- I feel like i've wrote this a few times this week; don't panic with your struggling Packers just yet. QB Aaron Rodgers last had a TD-less game on December 12, 2010. If you can find a panicking owner trying to unload Rodgers, get the deal done.
Seahawks- WR Golden Tate had
1 2 TD grabs on 3 receptions. Keep an eye on Tate, but I wouldn't jump on his bandwagon unless you're in need desperate need of WR depth. QB Russell Wilson is proving to be a decent NFL QB, but when it comes to fantasy, he has very little value. Until Wilson is allowed to throw the ball more frequently, leave him in the free agent pool.
