Fantasy Football Best Picks – Week 3

Fantasy Football Best Picks – Week 3

It’s the 3rd weekend of one week fantasy football and injuries already making waves in the league. It doesn’t get easier in Dallas. After losing Dez Bryant on week one, they lose their quarterback Tony Romo on week two. The Dallas Cowboys will try to stay undefeated without those players in the lineup. They will face the Atlanta Falcons who are also 2-0. The other teams who will try to keep their record clean this week are the Cincinnati Bengals, the Carolina Panthers, the New York Jets, the Arizona Cardinals, the Denver Broncos, the Green Bay Packers, and the Super Bowl champs, New England Patriots. Now, it’s time for some fantasy football hot picks:

QB Peyton Manning – Denver Broncos

Season: 431 PassYDs, 3 TDs, 74.2 QBRate, 2 INTs

He got off to a great start this year against Kansas City, but then hit a wall in the home opener facing the Ravens (even though the Broncos won). Manning knows how to regroup and has one of the best pre-game preparation in the NFL. He also has an elite group of receivers with him. It’s no doubt that he will have a great game against the struggling Detroit Lions.

RB Alfred Morris & RB Matt Jones – Washington Redskins

Morris’ Season:  193 TotalYDs, 0 TD, 4.2 AVGRush/Jones’ Season: 174 TotalYDs, 2 TDs, 6 AVGRush, 1 FL

It’s normal that if you can’t have an efficient quarterback, you at least need a good running game. That’s what’s happening in Washington. They are using a combo of running backs to elevate their chances to win. Alfred Morris and Matt Jones will continue to share time and fantasy value against the New York Giants.

WR/PR Travis Benjamin – Cleveland Browns

Season: 368 TotalYDs, 4 TDs, 6 Receptions

The AFC Special Teams Player of the Week number 2 will face off against the worst defense in the league, the Oakland Raiders. He was able to return a punt for a touchdown last week. Be ready to see Benjamin all over the field on Sunday.

WR Demaryius Thomas – Denver Broncos

Season: 182 YDs, 2 TDs, 7 Receptions

Thomas will be the number one option in offense for Manning this weekend, especially against a team that is really struggling against the pass this season.

WR/PR Jarvis Landry – Miami Dolphins

Season: 282 TotalYDs, 1 TD, 16 Reception

He has shown how exceptional he can be against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week. Now, it’s time for another round against divisional foes, the Buffalo Bills. The 22 year-old will be one of the top receivers at the end of the season.

WR/PR Emmanuel Sanders – Denver Broncos

Season: 172 TotalYDs, 2 TDs, 16 Receptions

He and Manning have developed a good chemistry. Manning relies on Sanders for the big plays week in and week out. Look for him to get back into a touchdown rhythm, after getting shunned by Baltimore last week.

TE Owen Daniels – Denver Broncos

Season: 24 YDs, 5 Receptions

It’s no secret that Denver offensive coach Gary Kubiak loves his tight ends. That was shown in week one against the Kansas City Chiefs, as Owen Daniels gained 19 yards in 3 receptions. Let see what Daniels can do against an underachieving defense like Detroit’s. I believe good things will happen for him.

D Denver Broncos

Season: 18.5 Pts/G, 243.5 YDs/G, 7 Sacks, 3 FF, 4 INTs, 2 TDs Returns

If it wasn’t enough to pick the Broncos to annihilate the Lions defense, here it is: I choose Denver’s D do the same thing with Detroit’s offense. The Lions are going to have a hard time holding the Broncos in every aspects of the game. Stafford is still bothered by injury and whether he is back or not, they will rely in a rookie running back (Ameer Abdullah) and an aging receiver (Calvin Johnson) for offense. That is not good enough to succeed against one of the best defense in the league.
