Fantasy Football: Week 3 Starts, Sits and Rankings Debate

RotoExperts Staff September 17, 2014 12:05AM EDT
FNTSY Sports Network’s Pat Mayo and Jake Ciely pump up their favorite Week 3 starts, tell you their sits and debate their rankings at every position. Plus, the guys tell you which players you should be targeting to buy low on RIGHT NOW and explain what sort of value you should looking for if you’re trying to trade Adrian Peterson or Jamaal Charles and, conversely, what’s acceptable to give up if you’re attempting to buy either running back.

NOTE: Recorded before Adrian Peterson’s deactivation early Wednesday morning. The same principle of giving up next to nothing to acquire AP remains true, as there is a chance he could return this season being a first time offender. But, the probability is low. Mayo and Jake would no longer make the Peterson for Charles deal however.

Week 3 RANKS: FLEX | QB | RB | WR | TE & D/ST
More Mayo: Game-by-Game Preview & Picks | Ranks Debate | AP/Gordon Value Now
Week 3: Waiver Wire Power Rankings | RB Tandem Value
