Sportsfan’s Jordan Goethe give his rankings of players for all you fantasy football fans for Week 3.

QUARTERBACK

1) Tom Brady vs Det

2) Kirk Cousins vs Buf

3) Patrick Mahomes vs SF
4) Drew Brees vs ATL
5) Aaron Rodgers vs Wsh
6) Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Pit
7) Cam Newton vs Cin
8) DeShaun Watson vs NYG
9) Jimmy Garoppolo vs KC
10) Carson Wentz vs IND
11) Mathew Stafford vs NE
12) Ben Roethlisberger vs TB
13) Matt Ryan vs NO
14) Phillip Rivers vs LAR
15) Blake Bortles vs Ten
16) Russell Wilson vs Dal
17) Alex Smith vs GB
18) Jared Goff vs LAC
19) Andy Dalton vs Car
20) Andrew Luck vs Phi

— Believe in Patrick Mahomes. Ten TD passes in his first two games, both on the road. Now the Chiefs return home to host the Niners. If you own Patrick Mahomes: Start him!

— Carson Wentz has a great return matchup this week vs the Colts, but I wouldn’t expect too much from him right away coming off a torn ACL.

— Stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick – aka Fitzmagic – for at least one more week vs a struggling
defense in Pittsburgh.

— I really like Jimmy Garoppolo vs the Chiefs. Kansas City has given up over 1,016 total yards so far this
season in just two games.

RUNNING BACKS

1) Todd Gurley vs LAC
2) Alvin Kamara vs ATL
3) Christian McCaffrey vs Cin
4) Melvin Gordon vs LAR
5) Saquon Barkley vs Hou
6) Ezekiel Elliott vs Sea
7) James Connor vs TB
8) Kareem Hunt vs SF
9) David Johnson vs Chi
10) Dalvin Cook vs BUF
11) Tevin Coleman vs NO
12) Leonard Fournette vs Ten
13) Chris Thompson vs GB
14) Jordan Howard vs Ari
15) Matt Breida vs KC
16) Kenyan Drake vs Oak
17) Lamar Miller vs NYG
18) Dion Lewis vs Jax
19) Adrian Peterson vs GB
20) Giovanni Bernard vs Car
21) Alex Collins vs Den
22) Phillip Lindsay vs Bal
23) Jay Ajayi* vs IND
24) James White vs Det
25) Corey Clement vs IND

26) Rex Burkhead vs Det
27) Jamaal Williams vs Wsh
28) Royce Freeman vs Bal
29) Marshawn Lynch* vs Mia
30) Derrick Henry* vs Jax
31) Austin Ekeler vs LAR
32) Payton Barber vs Pit
33) LeSean McCoy* vs Min
34) Theo Riddick vs NE
35) Alfred Morris vs KC
36) Chris Carson vs Dal
37) Rashaad Penny vs Dal
38) Sony Michel vs Det
39) Jordan Wilkins vs Phi
40) Javorius Allen vs Den

— If you’re a David Johnson owner, you’re probably getting a little nervous. But don’t make any rash decisions and trade him away just yet. Eventually that Cardinals offense will figure itself out.

— In a PPR league, it’s hard to deny Denver’s Phillip Lindsay a starting spot. All he’s done this year is produce and he’s going to continue to get more reps in that backfield.

— Through two weeks Matt Breida leads the league in rushing and I don’t believe that’s a fluke. Breida will continue to get a big workload over Alfred Morris and he also adds value in PPR leagues.

WIDE RECEIVER

1) Michael Thomas vs ATL
2) Antonio Brown vs TB
3) Mike Evans vs Pit
4) DeAndre Hopkins* vs NYG
5) Julio Jones* vs NO

6) Adam Thielen vs Buf
7) Odell Beckham Jr. vs Hou
8) AJ Green vs Car
9) Stefon Diggs vs Buf
10) Keenan Allen vs LAR
11) Tyreek Hill vs SF
12) Ju-Ju Smith Schuster vs TB
13) Devante Adams vs Wsh
14) Nelson Agholor vs IND
15) Allen Robinson vs Ari
16) Amari Cooper vs Mia
17) TY Hilton vs Phi
18) Demaryius Thomas vs Bal
19) Golden Tate vs NE
20) Cooper Kupp vs LAC
21) Brandin Cooks vs LAC
22) Emmanuel Sanders vs Bal
23) DeSean Jackson vs Pit
24) Robert Woods vs LAC
25) Kenny Golladay vs NE
26) Keelan Cole vs Ten
27) Chris Hogan vs Det
28) Marvin Jones vs NE
29) Larry Fitzgerald* vs Chi
30) Michael Crabtree vs Den
31) Will Fuller* vs NYG
32) Randall Cobb vs Wsh
33) Tyler Locket vs Dal
34) Devin Funchess vs Cin
35) Kenny Stills vs Oak
36) Marquise Goodwin* vs KC
37) Sammy Watkins vs SF
38) John Brown vs Den
39) Pierre Garcon vs KC
40) Corey Davis vs Jax

41) Geronimo Allison vs Wsh

— Two Minnesota WRs in the top 10? Believe it. Both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have a great
matchup this week vs a bad Bills team.

— On paper, the Lions have one of the best receiving corps in the league, but so far this season, NIU alum
Kenny Golladay has been the go-to target for Mathew Stafford. Golden Tate will always bring big value in
PPR leagues, but now I’m starting to lean Golladay over Marvin Jones for the Lions No. 2 option.

— If you’re in a PPR league or in a deeper league, Green Bay’s Geronimo Allison should be owned. He has
produced so far this year and of course the one and only QB Aaron Rodgers is throwing him the ball.

TIGHT END

1) Zach Ertz vs IND
2) Rob Gronkowski* vs Det
3) Travis Kelce vs SF
4) Kyle Rudolph vs Buf
5) Jordan Reed vs GB
6) Jared Cook vs Mia
7) Jimmy Graham vs Wsh
8) George Kittle vs KC
9) OJ Howard vs Pit
10) Evan Engram* vs Hou
11) Trey Burton vs Ari
12) Jack Doyle* vs Phi
13) Austin Hooper vs NO
14) Eric Ebron vs Phi
15) Will Dissly vs Dal
16) Benjamin Watson vs ATL
17) Ricky Seals-Jones vs Chi

18) Tyler Eifert vs Car
19) Jesse James vs TB
20) Austin Seferian-Jenkins vs Ten

— The TE position group has been a tough bunch to judge this season, especially with all the injuries. But a guy like OJ Howard is a great alternative option. He brings that big play, deep threat ability and with guys like WRs DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans on the outside, Howard could draw a few more targets up the middle.

— The Colts TE dilemma is something to keep a close eye on going forward. QB Andrew Luck already has trust in Jack Doyle, and he gets a lot of targets in the middle of the field. But so far Eric Ebron has been a better, bigger target in the red zone. Ebron is a good streaming option again this week.

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS

1) Vikings vs Buf
2) Jaguars vs Ten
3) Bears vs Ari
4) Eagles vs Ind
5) Texans vs NYG
6) Ravens vs Den
7) Broncos vs Bal
8) Cowboys vs Sea
9) Dolphins vs Oak
10) Rams vs LAC
11) Panthers vs Cin
12) Patriots vs Det
13) Bengals vs Car
14) Steelers vs TB
15) Titans vs Jax

— Outside of the top tier defenses, there are not a lot of great matchups across the league in week 3. I really like the Cowboys vs Russell Wilson and Co. If you’re looking for another streaming option, maybe check out the Dolphins or Bengals.

KICKERS

1) Robbie Gould vs KC
2) Justin Tucker vs Den
3) Stephen Gostkowski vs Det
4) Harrison Butker vs SF
5) Matt Bryant vs NO
6) Dan Bailey vs Buf
7) Will Lutz vs ATL
8) Jake Elliott vs Ind
9) Chris Boswell vs TB
10) Matt Prater vs NE
