Week 3 Fantasy Sit'em or Pick'em
Every week teams are juggling line-ups. This happens in all sports. It even happens in fantasy sports. Each week we take a look at the under the radar starters to help you with your fantasy team. Here is what we got for week 3.
Start - Cam Newton. Cam has a very favorable matchup against a less than stellar Saints defense. They will be able to do alot of different things this week. Start Cam Newton
Sit - Sam Bradford. Not a good matchup on the road vs a smothering Jets defense. This a defense that had locked down Cleveland and Indianapolis in the first 2 weeks. Yes, I know Cleveland is not really high powered. Philly is realling. I am sitting Sam Bradford.
Sleeper - Tyrod Taylor. I only say this because Taylor is a mobile QB. I think he will be able to break the pocket and make some plays against the Miami defense. If you need a last minute starter look here.
Start - Bishop Sankey. I like his matchup against the Colts. The Colts run defense has not good thru 2 weeks. I see the Titans trying to re-establish the run to help out Mariota. Start Bishop Sankey.
Sit - Demarco Murray. He ran 13 times for 2 yards last week vs Dallas. I think the Jets defense is better than the Cowboys defense, at least for the first 2 weeks. I am sitting Demarco Murray.
Sleeper - Tevin Coleman. Look for Dallas to try and drop into coverage and stop Matt Ryan and his WRs. This will play right into a high fed running game. Look for Tevin Coleman at a RB2 or Flex.
Start - Travis Benjamin. If you have not yet picked him up in your league go get him. That is if he is still available. He is the replacementt in Cleveland to Josh Gordon. He is a deep threat and YAC man. Start Travis Benjamin.
Sit - Brandon Cooks. Not a good matchup against a quietly good Carolina Defense. Possbility of no Drew Brees makes this even more of a sit. I am sitting Brandon Cooks.
Sleeper - Allen Robinson. This has the tendency of not being a very close game. The Jags could be throwing alot playing right into fantasy owners hands. Keep an eye on Allen Robinson at WR2, WR3 or Flex.
Start - Tyler Eifert. Has a fairly good matchup vs Baltimore. No Terrell Suggs and it showed how it hurts last week. Look for Eifert to exploit the middle of the Ravens defense.
Sit - Ladarious Green. Minnesota is quietly making itself good. I do not like this matchup for San Diego. I would sit Ladarious Green.
Sleeper - Richard Rodgers. Green Bay is playing a still stunned Kansas City defense. Look for Aaron Rodgers to hit his brother from another mother.
Start - Washignton Redskins. Number 1 ranked defense thru 2 weeks. Look for them to cause some trouble for Eli and the Giants offense.
Sit - Dallas Cowboys. Look for Matt Ryan and his WRs to have a good day. The Dallas secondary is not that good.
Sleeper - Seattle. The return of Kam Chancellor, enough said.
As always keep an eye on injuries throughout the week. These things could change based on those and returns. Good luck in week 3.
