      Shazier (knee) has been ruled out for this Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, ESPN reports.

      Analysis: Shazier suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday night's game against the Panthers, so him being ruled out for Pittsburgh's Week 4 game comes as little surprise. Nonetheless, the Steelers will now be tasked with replacing their promising rookie first-rounder at inside linebacker, with Sean Spence representing the most likely candidate.

      Jefferson accumulated 10 tackles (eight solo) and one sack in Sunday's victory against the 49ers.

      Analysis: Through three games, Jefferson has already surpassed his production as an undrafted rookie last year, when he totaled 24 tackles (19 solo) and nothing else. With eight, eight, and 10 tackles on the ledger, he's been consistent while holding down the strong safety spot intended for 2014 first-round pick Deone Bucannon (foot). Their respective snap counts Sunday -- 52-of-64 for Jefferson, versus Bucannon's 43, according to FOX Sports 910 Phoenix -- were much tighter than in Week 2 (70 versus 37), meaning the situation will be one to watch going forward. In the meantime, though, Jefferson's performance seems to be enough to hold IDP relevance in numerous formats.

      Ginn caught one pass (on three targets) for eight yards, rushed one time for four yards, and returned one punt for eight yards during Sunday's win versus the 49ers.

      Analysis: Once again, Ginn was sparsely used in the offense, earning only 13 of a possible 67 offensive snaps, according to FOX Sports 910 Phoenix, which ranked fourth among Cardinals wide receivers. Meanwhile, rookie WR John Brown has wrangled the No. 3 gig, at least, and seems poised to pass Larry Fitzgerald, if he hasn't already, in terms of output. As a result, fantasy relevance isn't really in reach for Ginn for the foreseeable future, barring an injury to the receiving corps.

      Gould converted field goals of 24 and 45 yards and nailed all three of his extra-point attempts in Monday's 27-19 win over the Jets.

      Analysis: Gould has kicked flawlessly through the Bears' first three games, knocking down all four of his attempts from the field to go along with nine extra points. Admittedly, he hasn't been challenged much, as he's only attempted two kicks over 40 yards and none over 50. Still, given Gould's 86.2 percent career accuracy rate from the field (third-best in NFL history), it's hard to dispute his standing as one of the most reliable kickers in the league.

      Carlson caught all three targets for 33 yards during Sunday's win over the 49ers.

      Analysis: For the third week in a row, Carlson dominated his fellow tight ends in terms of snaps, garnering 51 to Troy Niklas' 27 and Darren Fells' seven. Moreover, neither option was considered by fill-in quarterback Drew Stanton in the passing game, while fellow TE Rob Housler was deemed inactive due to a hip injury. On the season, Carlson's line (six catches for 96 yards) pales that of the aforementioned trio's combined two receptions (on four targets) for 32 yards, relaying the pecking order at the position in Arizona.
