Kevin Wheeler’s Week 3 Fantasy Football Rankings

Week 3 Fantasy Football Rankings

The chaos we expected in Week 1 actually happened in Week 2. We saw astonishing come-from-(WAY)-behind, wins on the road from the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets. We had crazy upsets from the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Indianapolis Colts, while the Dallas Cowboys somehow stifled the Cincinnati Bengals.

When examining these rankings, consider I am really only looking at positional ranks, not flex or overall rankings. When it comes to who you start in the flex, a lot will depend on your specific league rules and roster construction. If players are ranked within three spots of each other, the difference between them is negligible. They are expected to score the same amount of points; in those cases, go to our Discord.

Week 3 Fantasy Rankings: Quarterback

My favorite quarterback to draft in July, Tua Tagovailoa, quieted the nay-sayers with a 28-point fourth quarter on the road in Baltimore. Finishing with 469 yards and 6 touchdowns, completing 36 of his 50 pass attempts.

Carson Wentz finished the week as a top-5 QB for the second week in a row. As long as he is healthy, I think we will have to consider him a solid start in superflex leagues. He has a revenge game against Philadelphia in Week 3, which presents a much tougher matchup than he’s seen thus far. But, we know he’s had this one circled since he was traded to Washington.
