Fantasy Football Week 3

Have a dilemma at RB/WR? Can’t figure out which player to start? Leave your question in the comment section and we will hook you up with the right answer!

If we have given you a suggestion as to who you should play, please reply on Monday or Tuesday and let us know what you did and if it worked!

Fav QB Matchup – Cam Newton vs Jacksonville – Back to Back 400 yard games should be backed up with another 300+ yard game against the Jaguars.  Newton has been impressive in his first two starts, and deserves a win. 
  • They did get the win, but the weather was horrendous and led to a 18/34 for just 158 yards with a TD.

Fav RB Matchup – Jahvid Best @ Vikings - The Lions are commited to the run game, and even when the do decide to pass, Best is averaging 5 catches and 6.5 targets a game.  The Vikings have allowed 17 completions for 2 TDs to RBs and 3 rushing TDs over the first two weeks.
  • 5 catches for 74 yards and 12 carries for 14 yards.  Was in and out of the game with bumps and bruises.

Fav WR Matchup – Mike Wallace @ Colts – The Steelers returned to form last week and Mike Wallace was in the mix.  Look for Big Ben to hit him up on big plays as the Colts are just horrible.
  • Carrer high 144 yards on 5 receptions, TD

Fav TE Matchup – Jason Witten vs Redskins - With no Miles Austin and possibly no Dez Bryant, Jason Witten becomes the spotlight receiver.  With 14 targets last week, Witten could see 20 passes come his way this week!
  • 6 catches for 60 yards and 9 Targets

Fav DEF Matchup – Detroit Lions @ Vikings - The Vikings can only run the football.  The Lions have the personel to stop the run.  If the Lions also decide to keep the ball on the ground for the majority of the game, this could be over in less than 3 hours. 
  • 20 Points allowed, 4 sacks

Upset of the Week (1-1)
Washington Redskins @ Cowboys

Pick 6 (7-5)
