Week 3 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top Starter at Each Position This Week
Week 3 of the NFL season has some tough matchups for fantasy purposes. Many top players are going against top defenses, while the softer defenses are matched up against anemic offenses.
There are still a few fantasy studs that have great matchups, so let’s take a look at who should have the best week in fantasy at each position.
QB – Tom Brady
This guy has been playing some of the best football I have ever seen. In just two weeks, Brady is 63 for 88 passing for 940 yards, seven touchdowns with just one interception.
He goes against a weak Buffalo secondary this week that gave up 323 yards and two touchdowns to Jason Campbell.
Brady is going to have a field day against this offense and should be the best player in fantasy once again this week.
RB – Chris Johnson
Johnson has had a really tough go to start the season. He has been unproductive and has yet to find the end zone. As a guy who was drafted in the first round, he has not lived up to expectations.
He has 33 rushing attempts for 77 yards on the season and is showing he may not have deserved that ridiculous contract he held out for.
I think he starts to show the Titans’ brass that he is worth it against the Broncos’ defense. They are terrible and give up big yards to good running backs.
WR – Vincent Jackson
This guy is having a heck of a year. He scorched the Patriots last week for 10 catches and 172 yards while scoring two touchdowns.
This week he goes against a god-awful Kansas City team that has been giving up over 40 points a game to opponents.
KC lost Eric Berry and they have no insurance behind Brandon Flowers. He won’t be able to handle Jackson one-on-one all day.
TE – Rob Gronkowski
This kid is a beast. He is 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds with the biggest hands on the team. Brady loves finding him in the end zone but also will get him in on their drives up the field.
He has 10 catches for 172 yards and three touchdowns on the season and he should have another big week against a bad Buffalo defense.
K – Stephen Gostkowski
If New England’s offense goes off like they have in the weeks past, the ‘Ghost’ is guaranteed to have a big game just chipping in XPs
DEF – Pittsburgh
Easy match against Kerry Collins’ and the Colts. They blanked the Tarvaris Jackson led Seahawks and should have no problem against this offense.
