Week 3 Rankings

The key to fantasy football is more adjustment than drafting. Week 2 was a blood bath for most of us, but those of us who avoided the injury bug still need to stay on our toes. There are more injuries to come. Poor conditioning and preperation in this Covid-19 environment that is 2020 will not stop at week 2. Last week I had to update this article 11 TIMES as injury news hit BEFORE games started and we lost a half a dozen superstars during the games. Keep on the waiver should be making a pickup almost every week, if not to improve your team but also to hurt your opponents'. Hundreds of Christian McCaffrey owners went on full blown tilt Wednesday morning when they missed out on Mike Davis. Many stories popped up on Twitter of savvy owners picking up Davis and then trading for McCaffrey with their depth.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Chargers offense take shape under Justin Herbert who looked quite good. I think we might be in a great buy low spot for Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry who are likely security blankets. Was very happy to see Miles Sanders look like a true bellcow first round pick. Stefon Diggs is WR1. There are 17 tight ends averaging double digit PPR points, and that is without George Kittle. Don't be afraid to flex a TE if your lineup is banged up. In DFS this is a super sneaky cost saving move. There are some real breakout candidates such as Mike Gesicki, Mo Alie-Cox, and Drew Sample. Noah Fant and Jonnu Smith seem poised to be weekly starts now. The position is not as thin as we thought two weeks ago.

Fantasy football is an ebb and flow, just keep grinding. I drafted 31 teams this year, and I had Aaron Jones ranked ahead of Josh Jacobs so I of course ended up with no shares of Jacobs. On Saturday, I felt stupid. By Tuesday, I felt genius. Situations like this change daily and will continue to seesaw. I will update this space as news from practice reports breaks hourly and always keep an eye and hit me up on Twitter @jtrela20.

22 M. Gaskin @JAX Role increased yet again. That won't change on a short week.

23 J. Kelley CAR

26 J. McKinnon @NYG expect Jeff Wilson involved or would be much higher in great matchup

22 J. Edelman LV

23 T. Boyd @PHI Eagles secondary stinks. Good opportunity for Burrow to connect here

24 C. Lamb @SEA

25 D. Parker @JAX

3 M. Andrews KC

4 M. Gesicki @JAX monster 11 target/8 catch game out of slot last week

5 N. Fant @DEN

6 J. Smith @MIN Vikings can't defend anyone. I'm treating Jonnu as a WR2 this week

7 H. Henry CAR

8 Z. Ertz CIN

9 E. Engram SF He should basically be the running game for NYG. What a mess

10 T. Higbee @BUF BUF not great against TE but my gut says Kupp wins the middle of the field this week

12 J. Cook GB

13 J. Reed @NYG looked great for a 70 year old, another incredible spot against familiar foe

16 M. Allie-Cox NYJ saved many lineups last week....will again

5 D. Prescott @SEA

6 C. Newton LV looks outstanding in the pocket. Comp % of 71% so far

7 M. Ryan CHI so many weapons and the defense will force him to throw every week

8 J. Allen LAR

9 A. Rodgers @NO will take a big hit if Adams isn't well, but A Jones is a massive weapon

11 G. Minshew MIA

12 M. Stafford @AZ

13 J. Burrow @PHI broke out last week...takes over ROY race this week

14 B. Roethlisberger HOU

15 D. Watson @PIT if not for the rushing floor would be a sit this week

16 T. Brady @DEN

18 C. Wentz CIN

19 M. Trubisky @ATL Dream matchup, nightmare QB

20 D. Brees GB

21 P. Rivers NYJ 8.1 yards per attempt is good. Conservative approach working for this offense

22 T. Bridgewater @LAC

23 D. Jones SF rushing upside keeps him in the QB2 fold

24 B. Mayfield WAS Cardinals had the stones to move on quickly from Rosen mistake, and their guy is #1 on this list. Do the Jets and Browns have it in them with Fields and Lawrence on the board?
