Dalvin Cook Totals 29 Yards Against Patriots

Sunday, September 24, 8:30 PM

New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook handled eight carries for 18 yards and hauled in all three of his targets for 11 yards in a Week 3 loss to the New England Patriots. Cook was out-touched by Breece Hall on Sunday, but the 28-year-old was slightly more efficient. With Zach Wilson at the helm, the Jets once again struggled to move the ball and score. Cook will hope to improve on a lackluster start to the season in a Week 4 showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Christian McCaffrey A Premium Option In Week 4

Saturday, September 30, 1:47 AM

San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey will remain a dangerous weapon for fantasy managers to deploy in Week 4 when the 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. In Week 3, McCaffrey carried the ball 18 times for 85 yards and a touchdown with five receptions on as many targets for 34 yards. With the performance, McCaffrey tied legend Jerry Rice's franchise record for most consecutive games played with a touchdown at 12. As evidenced by the streak, McCaffrey currently has the highest fantasy floor of any running back in the league with week-winning upside. Arizona's run defense has been good, tied for 7th in the NFL in yards per carry allowed at 4.6, but CMC is as matchup-proof as they come. Start him with confidence as he tries to surpass Rice and break the plane into 49ers lore.
