Fantasy alert: Woe unto the Arizona Cardinals. Running back Ryan Williams is done for the season with a shoulder injury. Beanie Wells is already out until at least Week 12 so the new starting running back is... um... William Powell? Good thing running backs are fungible!

Jason Cole of Yahoo is reporting that, as many people expected, Santonio Holmes has a Lisfranc injury and is very likely done for the season. So now rookie Stephen Hill is the Jets' No. 1 receiver -- once he gets his hamstring healthy, of course -- and Chaz Schilens is No. 2. And Tim Tebow might be the one throwing them passes soon. Yikes. I stayed on the Jets playoff bandwagon longer than pretty much anyone else, but I'm off it now.

Yes, Johnathan Joseph, your Houston Texans are once again No. 1 in the Football Outsiders DVOA ratings. Week 4 means the first opponent adjustments and recalculated (and surprising) numbers on strength of schedule.

Tommy Craggs asked me to contribute to the Slate/Deadspin weekly roundtable today, bringing the fight against the NFL's Punt to Win philosophy. In case you couldn't tell from my comments in Audibles, I think Ron Rivera's decision to punt late in yesterday's game was pretty damn awful.

Peter King has his awards for the quarter pole. His offensive MVP is Matt Ryan, and his defensive MVP is J.J. Watt. (We've got plenty on Watt in tomorrow's Quick Reads, as well.)

Today's upset watch looks at the Bears, fifth in VOA and underdogs on the road against Dallas, 18th. Two similar teams, with one big difference: special teams. Special teams are also the secret behind our Cover Watch, Tennessee at Houston.
