Player Pos Team Opp Start / Sit Comment
Matthew Stafford QB LAR TB START Tampa is a funnel defense. They can shut down opposing running games but that forces teams to pass. Stafford has utiilized Cooper Kupp well and look for him to even give more action to other targets this week as well.
Daniel Jones QB NYG ATL START Jones has been fantasy gold thanks to his legs these last two weeks and I'm going to expect that continues this week vs the Falcons.
Sony Michel RB LAR TB SIT It sounds like Henderson might be down this week. Even if he is, I'd recommend benching Michel due to the matchup with Tampa's league best run defense.
Ty'Son Williams RB BAL DET START Detroit gave up a big rushing day to ELijaH Mitchell in week 1 then Aaron Jones destroyed opposing fantasy teams in week 2. Look for Ty'Son to be productive in his week 3 matchup despite a 3 headed committee forming in Baltimore
Kenyan Drake RB LV MIA START Drake will get the call again (with some support from Peyton Barber) but he doesn't have to go against Pittsburgh shut down run defense.
Braxton Berrios WR NYJ DEN START This isn't the best of matchups for a relatively non-descript WR, but it's likely to be a negative game-script and it looks like Crowder isn't ready yet so Berrios should receive his typical heavy volume of passing plays. Berrios is averaging 9 targets, 6 receptions and 62 yards per game through two weeks.
James Washington WR PIT CIN START There's some risk here with Ben's health, but Diontae Johnson is OUT this week and Washington should be the next man up.
