Fantasize Me: Sleeper Picks for Week 3 of Fantasy Football

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistSeptember 19, 2013

The running back landscape changed dramatically this week in the NFL. The biggest noise came from the state of Ohio, where the Cleveland Browns shipped off Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. 

Richardson fantasy owners collectively pumped their fists. He goes to a team that has a high-powered offense and one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL. 

However, fantasy owners who have Ray Rice, Reggie Bush and Eddie Lacy have to be shaking their heads going into Week 3. Lacy is definitely out, and it seems that even if Rice and Bush can go, they'll be used sparingly. 

A big sleeper pick to replace one of those running backs is Bernard Pierce of the Baltimore Ravens. When Rice went out last week with a hip flexor, Pierce stepped in with 19 carries and 57 yards and a touchdown. If Rice is out for Sunday against the Houston Texans, look for Pierce to put up some nice numbers.
