On Sunday, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. let fantasy owners know that he’s back. Nine grabs, two touchdowns, smooth route running and the ridiculous ball skills to finish plays. But what should we make of Isaiah Crowell’s subpar production? And who is jumping on the Chris Thompson train with me? Let’s get into that along with a look at Christian McCaffrey, the Eagles’ running backs and Stefon Diggs’ monster day against the Bucs. Here are my Week 3 fantasy takeaways.

John Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals, quadriceps: After missing last week due to a nagging quad injury, Brown will sit again. A nonparticipant in practice throughout the week, Brown has not tested the leg enough to inspire confidence that he could play at competition level without a setback. Earlier in the week, coach Bruce Arians said it would have to be “miraculous” for Brown to suit up Monday night. Unfortunately, no miracles this week.
Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers, right shoulder/ankle, (Q): Despite the questionable tag, Newton is expected to play. The bigger question, perhaps, is just how effective he will be, not so much with his throwing arm but with his running legs. Newton is expected to get rest each week for his shoulder after undergoing offseason surgery. He has not had any setbacks with his shoulder since the season began. In Week 2, however, Newton’s previously reconstructed ankle became an issue again. At one point, Newton was down on the field for a period of time after the ankle injury, ultimately walking off under his own power, accompanied by the medical staff. While the injury doesn’t appear serious, it may result in Newton’s being even less inclined to scramble.
