Start/Sit: Week 3

Photo Credit:

We are already in Week 3 and this year has been exciting to say the least. At this point you may be dealing with injuries in lineup, disappointing numbers from star players, or some happy surprises along the way. If you are struggling to decide what players to bench, and what players to plug into your lineup, worry no more.

*Parenthesis indicate positional Week 2 ranking


David Montgomery - Week 2 Performance: 13.6 FPTS (RB7)

David Montgomery (to my surprise) tore up the Packers defense, and more importantly, saw a good opportunity share. The Bears should maintain a lead against the Texans, making a good game script for Montgomery. This week he faces a weak Texans defense, that ranks 27th in fantasy points allowed to RBs, which should mean a big game for Montgomery.


Rashaad Penny - Week 2 Performance: 1.5 FPTS (RB66)

Penny fell victim to the Seattle offense falling back to Earth, and saw a lot of his touches be spread out to Kenneth Walker and Travis Homer. Many might be tempted to use him as a flex option against a bad Falcons team, but they rank 6th against fantasy backs, making it difficult to trust Penny going forward.


Damien Pierce - Week 2 Performance: 7.7 FPTS (RB25)

nPierce looked like a massive bust for fantasy owners after being outplayed by Rex Burkhead. Pierce came into the second game against the Broncos, and led the backfield.


Cam Akers/Darrell Henderson - Combined Week 2 Performance: (RB32/RB12)

After Week 1 it seemed as if Henderson would be the 3 down RB, but we saw Akers getting more involved, which could be the trend moving forward. It is looking more likely that this backfield will consists of the hot hand, making both RB's relatively unplayable. It seems Henderson has the edge right now, but unless it becomes clear-cut, then it will be hard to play either.


Curtis Samuel - Week 2 Performance: 15.9 FPTS (WR13)

nMost managers are just waiting for Samuel to decline with the typical regression of Carson Wentz, but I would advise them to ride it out til he cools off. Samuel is getting involved in a lot of ways, courtesy of his role with Rivera in Carolina, and should be the only WR on the team whose touches are non exclusive. Samuel is playing a solid Eagles secondary, that is solid, but still allowed 35 points to the Lions in Week 1.


Jerry Jeudy - Week 2 Performance: 1.2 FPTS (WR97)

Jeudy is seemingly a WR1 in the Broncos offense, but he is questionable after leaving the Texans game. The Broncos offense has been stagnant, and if Jeudy is less than 100%, it may be safer to ride out another WR. In most formats I would look towards Sutton taking the lead out of the Broncos.


Russel Gage - Week 2 Performance: 2.8 FPTS (WR73)

Gage has been underwhelming considering his offseason hype, but he is poised to be the biggest target hog in Tampa with Mike Evans (suspension), Chris Godwin (hamstring), and Jones (knee) all possibly being out. If that is the case Gage will be a high target share fill in for the Bucs offense.


Jarvis Landry - Week 2 Performance: 2.5 FPTS (WR78)

nLandry has been a solid target for Winston, but is competing with Michael Thomas and Chris Olave, which makes Landry feel like the odd man out. Landry has been a safe bet for fantasy managers in the past, but we could see his involvement trend down against Carolina.
