Week 3 Fantasy Forecast

Time for some Week 3 Fantasy outlooks. Let's see how the match ups look this week.

Like a Boss

Drew Brees
Have you seen the numbers this guy is putting up this year? He ripped up a very good Eagles defense last week, and should do something similarly destructive against the Bills. Until he gives you a reason not to, you start Drew Brees. 300 yards, 4 touchdowns sound reasonable?

Baltimore Ravens Defense
Much like Drew Brees, this group should be played any time you have the choice. Now they get to set their crosshairs on a very poor Browns offense, which may be without Jamal Lewis. Ripe for the pickin'!

Brandon Jacobs
I gotta give some love to the big man, who has gotten off to a slow start this year. The Bucs defense doesn't know what they're trying to be, so look for this to be the week the Giants get the running game on track. 120 yards, 2 TDs

Like a Bum

Chris Johnson
The kid can run, but he's up against a Jets defense that has been stifling to the point of not giving up an offensive touchdown in 2 games. They're disciplined, aggressive, and fast, so don't look for this to be CJ's best week. 75 yards, 0 TDs

JaMarcus Russell
I guess I'll explain it. This guy sucks. He's completed less than 40% of his throws on the year, and can't hit WRs short or intermediate. Now he has to throw against Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins in the Broncos secondary. If I have to tell you to sit this guy, I also have to ask why you drafted him in the first place 115 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs

Adrian Peterson
Controversy!!!! Yeah, I know, you should never sit AP, but that 49ers defense is really good, and the Peterson vs Willis battle should be sweet to watch. As amazing as Adrian Peterson is, he can be shut down by top flight defenders, and I think this will be an off week for him. 90 yards, 0 touchdowns.


Matt Forte
Forte has gotten off to a very slow start thus far, but has a favorable match up this week against the banged up Seahawks defense. Seattle is down 2 starting LBs, and you just feel like this kid is primed for a breakout game. 115 yards, 2 TDs, 6 catches, 55 yards

Beanie Wells
Any RB playing the Colts should be considered until they prove otherwise. Wells may not put up a ton of yards, both because the Cardinals barely run the ball, and from ball-ninja Tim Hightower, but I expect him to score on Indy. 85 yards, 2 TDs, 4 catches, 24 yards

Derrick Ward
The Giants were absolutely gashed last week by Dallas, and Tampa Bay has shown some real ability to run the ball. With standout Safety Kenny Phillips lost for the year, and Justin Tuck possibly out with a sore shoulder, there is vulnerability there that Ward absolutely knows how to take advantage of. 110 yards, 1 TD, 5 catches, 65 yards, 1 TD
