Week 3 Fantasy Football Rankings

From this point forward, we will have weekly rankings. These rankings are for standard leagues. But it’s not that complicated to use them for PPR; simply give a bump to guys that will catch more passes (like David Johnson, Julian Edelman). We’ll update these rankings throughout the week if there are any changes/news that comes along.

Philip Rivers is a great play against the Colts beat-up defense. Seriously, the Colts pass defense is not very good right now. Marcus Mariota should have a really good day agains the Raiders, who have given up a ton of points two quarterbacks through two games. Cam Newton is down a little bit in our rankings this week, because of the really tough matchup with Minnesota. He is at home though, and could still wind up as the number one quarterback this week.

  38. Chris Ivory (vs BAL)
  39. Jamaal Charles (vs NYJ)


DeMarco Murray is off to a great start to the year, and that should continue this week against Oakland. Melvin Gordon is now a workhorse RB, and he should continue his hotstreak with another big game this week against the Colts. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman could both have good games in what should be a shootout this Monday night in New Orleans. It might be best to keep Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael out of your lineup until the situation works out. Jamaal Charles should return this week, but it is probably best you keep him out of your lineup in case he only gets a few snaps—although Charles could do some damage with limited touches.

Antonio Brown will likely feast on the Eagles secondary this week, after a down week for him in Week 2. Will Belichick try and take away DeAndre Hopkins? With so many other weapons it might be hard, but it could happen. Still, keep ‘Nuk’ in your lineup. Julian Edelman is downgraded a bit this week because he will be playing with rookie quarterback Jacoby Brisket…and may actually be the backup quarterback this week. That’d be pretty fun if Edelman was throwing some passing touchdowns to rack you up some points, though.



  1. Rob Gronkowski (vs HOU)
  2. Delanie Walker (vs OAK)
  3. Jordan Reed (@ NYG)
  4. Greg Olsen (vs MIN)
  5. Travis Kelce (vs NYJ)
  6. Julius Thomas (vs BAL)
  7. Antonio Gates (@ IND)
  8. Jacob Tamme (@ NO)
  9. Coby Fleener (vs ATL)
  10. Eric Ebron (@ GB)
  11. Gary Barnidge (@ MIA)
  12. Dwayne Allen (vs SD)
  13. Martellus Bennett (vs HOU)
  14. Dennis Pitta (@ JAC)
  15. Jason Witten (vs CHI)
  16. Clive Walford (@ TEN)
  17. Jimmy Graham (vs SF)
  18. Charles Clay (vs ARI)
  19. Zach Miller (@ DAL)
  20. Trey Burton (vs PIT)


If Gronk is back, he’s clearly the #1 TE, even if he’s limited. Martellus Bennett should still have an opportunity for some points, as Jacoby Brisett seemed to like going his way last week. Coby Fleener will try to get going this week in what his owner’s hope to be a Monday night shootout. Dennis Pitta had a good week last week, and could become a TE1 pretty soon if he keeps it up.



  1. Houston Texans (@ NE)
  2. Seattle Seahawks (vs SF)
  3. Miami Dolphins (vs CLE)
  4. Denver Broncos (@ CIN)
  5. Arizona Cardinals (@ BUF)
  6. Cincinnati Bengals (vs DEN)
  7. Carolina Panthers (vs MIN)
  8. Pittsburgh Steelers (@ PHI)
  9. Kansas City Chiefs (vs NYJ)
  10. Minnesota Vikings (@ CAR)
  11. New England Patriots (vs HOU)
  12. Baltimore Ravens (@ JAC)
  13. New York Giants (vs WAS)
  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs LA)
  15. Green Bay Packers (vs DET)
  16. Los Angeles Rams (@ TB)
  17. Jacksonville Jaguars (vs BAL)
  18. Dallas Cowboys (vs CHI)
  19. New York Jets (@ KC)
  20. Philadelphia Eagles (vs PIT)


The Texans are our top option because they’re a top five defense going against a rookie quarterback in his first start on a slow week, but don’t be surprised if the Patriots have an excellent gameplan to put up some points. Still, we feel pretty comfortable playing the Texans D/ST. The Steelers will get their shot at rookie quarterback Carson Wentz and the Eagles. The Steelers have played great defense thus far, so we’ll see what they can do against the rookie.

  2. Dan Bailey (vs CHI)
  3. Mason Crosby (vs DET)

  7. Brandon McManus (@ CIN)
  8. Chandler Catanzaro (@ BUF)
  9. Matt Bryant (@ NO)
  10. Chris Boswell (@ PHI)
  11. Graham Gano (vs CAR)
  12. Cairo Santos (vs NYJ)
