Woo and Boo: Your start and sit recommendations for Week Three, plus lineup ranks

Woo

QB

Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Ride the wave, ladies and gentlemen! Ryan Fitzpatrick has been the talk of the NFL through the first two weeks, and in his final start before the return of Jameis Winston, he draws a matchup against a soft Steelers secondary. Expecting that this game should be a back and forth affair is an understatement. While I don’t expect to see Fitzpatrick throw for over 400 yards again, I do see him providing solid QB1 numbers in this matchup. Look for 340 yards with at least two scores in this game. The inconsistencies with the Bucs’ running game will once again put Fitzmagic to work in hopes of securing another win.

Ryan Tannehill vs. Oakland Raiders

Although the yardage from Tannehill has been rather low, he has thrown for two touchdowns in each of the first two games. In Week Three, Tannehill gets a home matchup against a very hot and cold Raiders secondary. Also expected back is DeVante Parker, giving Tannehill another weapon to work with in the passing game. I expect to see the Raiders focus on making Tannehill be the one to win the game, so an increase in passing yardage is to be expected here. He could finish the week as a borderline QB1, but I think he still falls a tad short. But, a 280-yard game with two touchdowns is not too bad to plug into your lineup in Week Three if you are playing the matchups at the position.

RB

Sony Michel @ Detroit Lions

We could be on the verge of a breakout week for rookie Sony Michel. After being eased into game action in Week Two, Michel gets the benefit of facing a Lions defense in Week Three that is currently 31st in the NFL in points allowed to the position. With so much of the talk in New England centered around the acquisition of Josh Gordon, I could see the offense become more ground-orientated in this game. Michel will benefit from this and bring you RB2-level value here. He doesn’t have a tremendous amount of appeal in PPR formats, but with the chance that he gets into the end-zone that can easily make up for the lack of targets in the passing game. I can see Michel with a 90-yard day on the ground with a score. Definitely worth the start in any format.

Matt Breida @ Kansas City Chiefs

Currently a Top 10 player at the position, Matt Breida looks to take control of the 49ers backfield in a matchup against a Chiefs defense that is currently a bottom-five team in points allowed to opposing runners. I believe the game-script could fall in Bredia’s favor here as the Chiefs get out to a lead, putting Breida on the field in more passing situations. I like him as a strong RB2 play in PPR formats in Week Three, with another 150-total yard game and a potential score.

WR

Keelan Cole vs. Tennessee Titans

After a slow start to the season, Keelan Cole bounced back in a major way in Week Two with 100 yards and a score. In Week Three, he should easily be able to repeat those numbers against a Titans secondary that is 31st in points allowed to opposing wide receivers. He is first on the team in snap counts (106) and second in targets (12). Blake Bortles looks his way often, and that connection should pay off again here with 115 yards and another touchdown for Cole in Week Three.

Kenny Golladay vs. New England Patriots

Kenny Golladay has quietly become a solid playable option. He is currently second on the team in both snaps (136) and targets (21) and leads the team in receiving yards (203). Look for Matt Stafford and the Lions to continue to air it out against a Patriots secondary that was just torched a week ago by the Jaguars. I expect to see Golladay finish this game with a nice six-catch, 85-yard day and a trip into the end zone. He’s worthy of WR2 consideration in either format in your season-long leagues.

TE

Jesse James @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Don’t look now, but Jesse James is currently the second-leading receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers (198 yards) and ranks as TE2 in any format. The question is, can he keep this up? Probably not, but I don’t foresee that changing this week in a matchup against a Buccaneers defense that is one of the bottom teams in the league in defending the position. In a high-scoring affair, James should find himself involved in the game-plan. Look for James to haul in five catches for 60 yards and a score in Week Three. That’s easily valuable enough to start at a position with so few options.

DEF

Dallas Cowboys @ Seattle Seahawks

This Cowboys defense could be one of the more surprising stories to start the 2018 season. With six sacks in each of the first two games, they have shown they can get after the quarterback and create havoc. That is just what they should do yet again in a game against a Seahawks team that has not played well at all. The offensive line woes that plagued the team a year ago are still prevalent, and the Cowboys should take advantage. If you stream at the position, scoop this defense up and plug them into your lineup.

Boo

QB

Philip Rivers @ Los Angeles Rams

Rivers has performed well enough to begin the year as a top five player at the position. But don’t expect to see QB1 numbers in Week Three, as Rivers faces his toughest test yet against the vaunted Rams defense. I can see the Chargers attempting to play more of a ground-control type of game to avoid the Rams secondary, limiting the opportunities Rivers will have to score. If you have another option to rotate to, I would suggest doing so this week.

Russell Wilson vs. Dallas Cowboys

Last season’s top quarterback has found himself struggling to begin the 2018 campaign. The road will remain tough in Week Three, with a very good Cowboys defense coming to town. Wilson will likely be running for his life most of the day due to the poor offensive line play, so expecting QB1 numbers might be a bit of a stretch. Week Three may be the week where you must bite the bullet, go to the waiver wire and grab a quarterback with a better matchup. Wilson could certainly disappoint in this contest.

RB

Royce Freeman @ Baltimore Ravens

Freeman was believed to be in line for a bell-cow role in the Broncos backfield, but now he finds himself on the wrong side of a committee approach with Phillip Lindsay. He’s not offering much value in PPR formats and in Week Three, he draws a tough road matchup against the Ravens. If he continues to split time, this game is one where you should consider benching him for another, more solid player with a better matchup (i.e. Theo Riddick).

LeSean McCoy @ Minnesota Vikings

Another stud at the position that is underperforming and now finds himself injured is LeSean McCoy. Check the practice reports throughout the week on his status, but if he does tough it out, it will be a mistake to play him. Going on the road to play the Vikings defense spells all kinds of trouble. For a player that is currently averaging 0.8 yards after contact, I will avoid McCoy at all costs in Week Three.

WR

Corey Davis vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Corey Davis travels to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars, where will be matched up against Jalen Ramsey and have Blaine Gabbert throwing the ball. All this add up to a surefire benching for me in all formats. Look elsewhere for points in Week Three.

Robert Woods vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Robert Woods is the most targeted receiver for the Rams (18) but has only brought in nine of those targets, good for third on the team. In Week Three, he likely will be matched up against Casey Heyward of the Chargers which could force Goff to look to his other receivers more in this game. His weekly WR3 value drops in this game to a player that I am willing to bench for a better matchup, as should you.

TE

Austin Seferian-Jenkins vs. Tennessee Titans

Seferian-Jenkins was one of the hyped tight ends entering the 2018 season, but after two games he has just six catches for 48 yards to his credit. Now, in Week Three, he faces a Titans defense that has been quite stingy in allowing points to the position. With Bortles and the receivers likely being able to have their way with this secondary, it could leave Seferian-Jenkins on the outside looking in. There are other options that you can pivot to in Week Three.

DEF

New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons

This Saints’ defense has not played up to the potential that they showed in the 2017 season. Now, they go on the road to play the divisional rival Falcons. These NFC South games tend to be more of the high scoring variety, making the defense one to avoid in Week Three.
