Week 3 Start or Sit Advice

Start SIt Advice

Who to start in your Fantasy Football Lineup

Quarterbacks to Start Week 3

Matt Ryan, (vs TMB): With both teams defenses struggling I think this should have a lot of scoring.   Ryan has done well against the Bucs in the past and Tampa defense has allowed the highest amount of deep passes completed to opposing teams

Jay Cutler (vs NYJ): With Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery questionable to play against a 49ers, we didn’t know how Cutler would do. As it turned out Marshall and Jeffery did play and Cutler put up four touchdowns on the 49ers. This week he plays the Jets who are giving up the most touchdown passes to opposing teams.Week 2 Start or Sit Advice

Colin Kaepernick (vs ARI): The 49ers coming off a terrible loss. This week he plays the Cardinals, who he has at least 250 passing yards and two touchdowns in each of the three times he played them. The 49ers could be without Vernon Davis (ankle), which wouldn’t help Kaepernick, so something to keep in mind.

Quarterbacks to Sit Week 3

Jake Locker (at CIN): Locker let a lot of Fantasy owners down in Week 2 coming off a strong Week 1.  This week he plays Cincinnati who just shut Matt  Ryan in Week 2, holding him to just 231 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Ben Roethlisberger (vs CAR):  Bed did not look good last week.  Every drive seem to stall.  Now he plays a tough Carolina defense that has allowed the second fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks since 2013.

Running Backs to Start Week 3

Stevan Ridley (vs OAK):  I cant believe im saying this myself, but Ridley could have a lot of upside, especially if you do weekly fantasy leagues.  There are so many things that could go wrong like, Bill Belichick could decide this is the week to feature Brandon Bolden or or rookie James White. Or maybe Tom Brady decides to put on a show(finally).

After last weeks performance against the Vikings, I’m betting on Ridley this week.  The Raiders are traveling across the country for a 1 p.m. ET start, and their run defense has already been shredded in two games by Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Arian Foster. In fact all three running backs scored at least 14 Fantasy points in a standard league.  He got clean up time last week, so hopefully he at least gets that again this week.

 Knile Davis (at MIA): Well if your a Charles owner who doesn’t have  Davis, I’m sure you’re not too happy. Charles is dealing with a high ankle sprain, though we did hear he was at practice doing his walk through for Sundays game. Either way you should start him.  Each time he’s see extened game action, he has gotten at least 25 touches and scored two touchdowns and the Dolphins run Defense has been suspect.

Joique Bell (vs. GB): The Lions seem to be using Bell as their primary running back and has played well the last two weeks.  The Packers have given up the second most yards to opposing running backs and double digits in Fantasy points in both games this year. He should put on another good show again this week.  

Running Backs To Sit Week 3

Shonn Greene (vs CIN): The Titans had to abandon the run game in the second half against the Cowboys last week but Greene got off to a good start with five carries for 40 yards.  But that was all because  the Titans had to throw the ball a lot.  This week against the Bengals it should be more of the same, with the Titans playing from behind thus making Greene useless.

LeVeon Bell (vs CAR): Hard to sit Bell since he is such a big part of the offense, but the Panthers have allowed only four rushing touchdowns, fewest in the league.

Montee Ball (at SEA): Not a good match up for Ball.  The last two running backs to play Seattle (Lacy suffered a concussion and Mathews was carted off with a knee injury). Ball has been playing well, but Seattle is a tough place to play, and only two running backs have reached double digits in Fantasy points in the past nine games there. I would sit Ball if possible in this week.

Wide Receivers to Start Week 3

Mike Wallace (vs. KC): I knew Wallace would have a bounce back season, but he got off to a better start than I thought.  So far this season with 12 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns in his first two games. The Chiefs have allowed three receivers to reach double digit Fantasy points so far this season.

Vincent Jackson (vs ATL): Last two times he played the Falcons Jackson put up 303 yards and 2 TD’s on 20 receptions.  Atlanta’s defense is not very good, as they are tied for the third-most touchdowns allowed to opposing wide receivers.

Wide Receivers to Sit Week 3

Torrey Smith (vs CLE): Smith has been invisible through the first two games with four catches for 60 yards. As much as I think he will start doing better, im not  counting on it this week against the Browns since he will most likely be seeing a lot of Joe Haden.

Victor Cruz (vs. HOU): Cruz said to throw him the ball and he put it on the turf. Cruz has yet to see the endzone.  Until he and that horrible offense show signs of life, you cant trust Cruz.
