While week 3 of the fantasy football season saw Quarterback's Russell Wilson and Josh Allen continue to produce an ultra high level, we could see an official changing of the guard under center in Chicago after Mitchell Trubisky was benched for Nick Foles only for Foles to lead the Bears to a come from behind victory. It wasn't all celebrations in Chi-town though because the Bears will likely be without the services of Tarik Cohen for the rest of the season after he severely injured his Knee. Week 3 also saw top performances from Alvin Kamara who had 13 receptions, two of them being for touchdowns and Tyler Lockett caught three touchdowns. Lockett's teammate DK Metcalf was at the Center of all fantasy frustrations as he carelessly didn't protect the ball as he was heading into the endzone, only for it to get knocked out going to the back of the endzone. It was a Touchdown turned over and he should have had two for the day. As we head to week 4, remember, being 0-3 doesn't mean your season is over, but it's time to get aggressive in making moves. We'll help you turn things around.

Cam Akers didn't touch the ball in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Bears.
He played just a handful of snaps as the very distant RB3 behind Darrell Henderson (17 touches) and Malcolm Brown (10). Akers is merely a bench stash in fantasy should one of Henderson or Brown get injured. He hasn't touched the ball over the last two weeks after posting a 9-61 rushing line in Week 5 at Washington.

Gerald Everett caught 4-of-5 targets for 28 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Bears.
Tyler Higbee (hand) didn't play in this one, but Johnny Mundt was actually second on the Rams in receiving with a 3-47 line on three targets as the No. 2 tight end. Everett at least was able to find the end zone with a 12-yard score in the third frame. He and Higbee cancel each other out most weeks, leaving both as TE2 options ahead of Week 8 at Miami.

Jimmy Graham caught 5-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Rams.
Graham has seen at least five targets in all but one game this season and is very clearly a favorite of Nick Foles in the scoring area. He's a TD-dependent back-end TE1 most weeks at a shallow fantasy position ahead of Week 8 against one of his former teams in the Saints.

Robert Woods caught 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Bears.
He added 23 yards on four rushing attempts but fumbled away one of those that was easily scooped up by Eddie Jackson and returned for a short touchdown after Woods was blown up in the backfield. Woods hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 1 in this run-dominant offense. He and Cooper Kupp have devolved into weekly WR3 plays ahead of a Week 8 date on the road at the Dolphins.

Anthony Miller caught 3-of-5 targets for 20 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Rams.
One of his missed connections was an end-zone shot that was broken up. Miller hasn't scored since Week 3 and hasn't topped 41 yards since Week 1. He's obviously well off the fantasy radar as the Bears' fourth or fifth option in a horrid offense.

Cooper Kupp caught all six of his targets for 43 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Bears.
He added a 16-yard rush. Kupp's six targets were his fewest since Week 2, and he has just one 100-yard game on the year in a run-heavy offense. Kupp has become more of a WR3 in this version of the Rams' offense, though he does get a plus draw on the road in Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Darnell Mooney caught 3-of-7 targets for 40 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Rams.
Mooney has seen at least five targets in five straight games but has yet to top 52 yards in a game while playing with some poor quarterbacks. Mooney should have had a 96-yard touchdown in this one after beating Jalen Ramsey clean, but Nick Foles completely missed him on a third down. The rookie wideout is off the redraft radar but should be owned in Dynasty formats. The Bears host the Saints in Week 8.

Josh Reynolds caught 4-of-8 targets for 52 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Bears.
Reynolds paced the Rams in targets and yards and got the scoring started with a four-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He's scored in back-to-back weeks and has drawn 26 targets over the last five weeks, settling in as the WR3 in L.A. ahead of rookie Van Jefferson. Reynolds has big games here and there but can't be trusted for fantasy purposes. He's yet to top 60 yards in a game this season. The Rams go to Miami in Week 8.
