NFL Week 3: Fantasy football sits and starts

Rate this Entry
Hopefully Cheap Vontaze Burfict Jersey , your fantasy team is doing as well as the Bengals have been so far this season. If things haven’t been going so well, don’t worry. We are here with some players you should start and sit for Week 3 in the NFL on your fantasy football team.Must startsDalvin Cook (Vikings RB): Whatever running back going against the Bills has to be in your lineup if you own them. They have been burned by running backs (and every other position) so far during this season. Cook hasn’t had the strongest start to his season, but he should easily give you a great game this week.Vikings wide receivers: It is rare that you can safely say that two receivers on the same team will have relevant fantasy weeks. That will easily be the case for Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. Both have so far been great for fantasy teams. Diggs has three touchdowns so far on the season, and Thielen has 25 targets on the season already. Against a weak Bills secondary that is liable to lose defensive backs at any point during the game, these guys need to be in your lineup. Christian McCaffrey (Panthers RB): Bengals fans may be mad to see an opposing player as a must start, but if you own McCaffrey in a PPR league, then you’ll be striking gold this week. He is coming off a 14 reception game against the Falcons, and the Bengals linebackers struggle with pass-catching running backs. The volume and lack of other reliable targets for Cam Newton that makes McCaffrey a must start this week.Favorable matchupsAntonio Callaway (Browns WR): The Browns traded Josh Gordon this week. He already had his snaps severely cut in favor of Callaway last week when the rookie had three catches for 81 yards and a touchdown. Against a Jets defense that isn’t extremely stout against the pass, Callaway could see plenty of targets. It also helps that Jarvis Landry is banged up, and even though he is expected to play, if he isn’t 100 percent, that means Callaway could easily steal targets from the veteran.Phillip Lindsay (Broncos RB): Lindsay came out of nowhere. Many expected Denver’s backfield to be dominated by rookie Royce Freeman Youth Preston Brown Jersey , but this undrafted rookie Lindsay has stolen the show. Vance Joseph continues to say they will ride whoever has the hot hand. Well, right now, that is Lindsay, who is currently third in the NFL in rushing with 178 yards. His limitations come with not being a reliable touchdown scorer, but owners should ride his hot hand as long as Denver does anyways.Tevin Coleman (Falcons RB): In the absence of Devonta Freeman, Coleman put up over 100 yards rushing, four catches and 18 yards receiving against the Panthers. He saw 20 total touches, which could be very productive against the Saints this week. New Orleans hasn’t exactly struggled with slowing down running backs, but with how concerned they’ll be with the rest of Atlanta’s offense Coleman should be able to slide through with a decent outing.Brandin Cooks (Rams WR): Cooks has 17 targets through two weeks and has 246 yards and 12 catches to show for it. The Rams love using play action to create big plays, and it is clear the Cooks has found where he belongs in the NFL. He is one of Goff’s favorite targets, and he is an easy play in Week 3 against the Chargers who struggled with speedy receivers in Week 1.Just sit themDerrick Henry (Titans RB): Henry has been bad for fantasy owners. Even when he was meant to be featured last week without Marcus Mariota, he still only managed 56 yards on 18 carries. It is pretty easy to see the Titans will be playing from behind most of this game Authentic Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , which favors running back Dion Lewis. Although I don’t think Lewis is playable outside of PPR settings either.Josh Gordon (Patriots WR): It is too soon. Just don’t do it.Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals WR): The Bears defense is legit. Also until the Cardinals take Sam Bradford out from under center this entire offense seems unplayable.David Johnson (Cardinals RB): I know Johnson owners invested a lot in this guy. He was likely your first round pick. He had 51 total yards last week and 67 in Week 1. He also has only one touchdown on the season. At this point the Cardinals have been grounded and need Josh Rosen to help them take off again.Defenses to streamVikings against the Bills: Whoever is playing the Bills will always be first on this list. They are that bad.Bears against Cardinals: The Cardinals are really competing with the Bills for just how bad an offense can be.Browns against Jets: This is a risky move, but desperate times could call for desperate measure. Sam Darnold has been loose with the ball, and Cleveland has held Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees to only 21 points each. They could be your best available option. The Bengals and Buccaneers field defenses that fantasy football owners love. Neither team likes to try and stop their opponents, so be prepared to start a lot of players from both sides in your lineup if you have them.This should be a high-scoring game.Must startsA.J. Green (Bengals WR): This is easy. The Buccaneers give up the fourth most points to opposing receivers, according to Fantasy Pros. Green is easily going to see plenty of targets against this soft Buccaneers secondary.Joe Mixon (Bengals RB): The Bucs’ defense isn’t exactly a pushover as far are surrendering points to running backs goes, but Mixon should see plenty of volume against them at home. He had a rough outing last week, but it seemed like it was mostly due to the game getting out of hand so quickly.Favorable matchupsMike Evans (Buccaneers WR): Evans hasn’t caught a touchdown from Jameis Winston yet this season, but the Bengals haven’t really slowed down opposing receivers this season. It wouldn’t be a shock to see him improve on his last outing, which was his first 100 yard game after Winston’s return.Tyler Boyd (Bengals WR): If Boyd struggles this week we have to really start worry about his performance when John Ross isn’t healthy. Ever since Ross has started struggling with injuries, Boyd has struggled to be as consistent in fantasy. This pitiful Buccaneers defense should provide a good chance for Andy Dalton and Boyd to get back on track.Andy Dalton (Bengals QB): Speaking of Dalton getting back on track. The Buccaneers’ defense allows the most points to opposing quarterbacks in the NFL. By the matchup alone it doesn’t get any better than this week for Dalton.C.J. Uzomah (Bengals TE): The Buccaneers’ defense also happens to allow the most points to opposing tight ends. Uzomah caught the Bengals lone touchdown last week, and the week before he had six catches for 54 yards. The tight end position in fantasy is a mess right now, and with Uzomah’s matchup and volume Womens Bobby Hart Jersey , it is hard to pass him up this week.O.J. Howard (Buccaneers TE): With both Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil out this week, the Bengals will be extremely thin at linebacker, and Howard could easily take advantage of that weakness. The only thing hurting Howard’s value is fellow tight end Cameron Brate who has three touchdowns on the season.Good but not greatBengals defense: Winston has been a turnover machine since returning from suspension. In less than three games he has six interceptions and four fumble (though he only lost one of those). It wouldn’t be shocking to see this defense pull off a few big defensive plays on Sunday.Buccaneers’ receivers: The most ideal start is DeSean Jackson just because of his big play ability. Chris Godwin also has four touchdowns on the season though. With Darqueze Dennard out, the Bengals have been getting killed on the inside, and one of these guys could take advantage of that.Peyton Barber (Buccaneers RB): He is the leading rusher for the Bucs, but that isn’t saying much. He only has 260 yards on 74 carries this season. He also has yet to score a touchdown this season. Still due to the prior mentioned injuries the Bengals are dealing with, he could have a flex worthy game.Temper expectationsJameis Winston (Buccaneers QB): Winston has had trouble with turning the ball over since returning from suspension. I have a hard time believing that changes anytime soon. He could have some big plays, but the turnovers could keep him from having a starer level’s performance.
