Projecting Week 3's Top Fantasy Football Scorers

Were you one of the lucky people from Week 2 who listened to the Week 2 numberFire rankings and rode Victor Cruz to victory? How about one of those who started Eli Manning after seeing him ranked at No. 4, or tempered expectations after seeing Aaron Rodgers out of our list altogether? How about those who started Jamaal Charles after seeing him in our top five? Whoops, I forgot about that one. Well, you can't win them all.

But if you're (my other home on the Web), you can win most of them. The numberFire projections beat any of those that you'd get inside your fantasy game. We've taken our projections and those of our competitors, subtracting each from the actual number of fantasy points any player got, and seeing who was closest. In 93 percent of weeks over the past two years, we've been closest on 60 percent of players. For the math un-inclined, that's really, really good.

After last week's top overall projections of Adrian Peterson and Victor Cruz, this week's selection of number one projections may not be as exciting. At the very least, there are no major surprises at the very top of the list. But once you get down a bit into the top five projections this week, you'll find a few eye-openers. From the Steelers' air attack to the Return of the MJD, let's get into this week's top fives.
