Ryan Tannehill believes Dolphins have the 'hunger and desire to win'
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill likes what he sees from his team and believes they have "a hunger and desire to win."
The Dolphins have started the year 2-0 and lead the AFC East heading into Week 3. The offense has racked up less than 300 yards per game so far with Tannehill playing efficiently. The quarterback has completed 72.5% of his passes and has a career-high 7.8% touchdown rate. The offense will have a much easier time in Week 3 in with a favorable matchup against the Oakland Raiders
NumberFire's models project Tannehill for 250.9 passing yards, 1.4 touchdowns, and 0.7 interceptions for 17.1 FanDuel points in Week 3.
Sam Bradford will remain the Cardinals starting quarterback for Week 3
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford will remain the starter for Week 3's contest versus the Chicago Bears.
Bradford has struggled through the first two weeks of the season, averaging 121.5 yards per game. Head coach Steve Wilks affirms his trust in Bradford telling reporters, "Sam's the guy (for Week 3)." Rookie Josh Rosen will have to wait at least another week before taking over the Cardinals' struggling offense.
numberFire's models project Bradford for 212.5 yards, 1.5 touchdowns, and 0.9 interceptions for 13.3 FanDuel points against the Bears in Week 3.
Jack Doyle (hip) not practicing on Wednesday for Indy
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (hip) did not practice on Wednesday.
Doyle joined T.Y. Hilton on the sidelines of Wednesday's practice. The Colts' top pass catchers are expected to play on Sunday with Wednesday being merely a maintenance day. The presence of Eric Ebron has not yet started to take snaps away from Doyle, who played in all but two in Week 2.
numberFire's models project Doyle for 5.1 catches, 48.9 yards, and 0.1 touchdowns for 8.3 FanDuel points in Week 3.
Colts' T.Y. Hilton (quad) misses Wednesday's practice
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (quad) did not participate in practice on Wednesday.
Hilton didn't seem hampered at all in Sunday's win over the Washington Redskins. His absence on Wednesday is likely a maintenance day for the wideout. Hilton is expected to be ready to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
numberFire's models project Hilton for 4.6 catches, 74.5 yards, and 0.4 touchdowns for 12.3 FanDuel points in Week 3.
Julio Jones (calf) absent on Wednesday from Falcons' practice
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (calf) did not practice on Wednesday.
Jones was on the field for over 75% of the Falcons' snaps in Week 2 and did not appear to be hurt. Wednesday's absence could be just a routine rest day for the superstar wideout. Jones is expected to play on Sunday in a high-scoring affair with the New Orleans Saints.
numberFire's models have Jones pegged as a top-four fantasy wideout in Week 3 with 5.8 catches, 102.3 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns for 17.2 FanDuel points.
Dalvin Cook (hamstring) misses Vikings' practice on Wednesday
Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.
Cook suffered the injury late in Sunday's tie with the Green Bay Packers. The team considers him day-to-day, meaning Wednesday's absence was likely as a precaution. Cook's participation level on Thursday will make the picture much clearer. Latavius Murray is expected to see an increased role either way with a likely blow out coming against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
numberFire's models project Cook for 90.7 total yards and 0.9 touchdowns on 18.1 touches for 15.4 FanDuel points in Week 3.
