Fantasy Football: Week 3 Position Rankings

What’s the difference between the Washington Redskins backup RB Matt Jones and the retired wide receiver Matt Jones that once played for the Jacksonville Jaguars? Nothing! They scored about the same amount of fantasy points Thursday night. Hahahahaha! Matt Jones was the number one waiver-wire add this week and I don’t have an issue with that. But you can’t insert a guy (especially a rookie) in your starting lineup after one good game! And to make matters worst, he’s a part of a three-headed backfield. Personally, I avoid trio backfields like the plague. Matt Jones actually had a chance to satisfy his owners with a goal line carry but seemed to have slippery hands on the one-yard line. Note to self: ease waiver wire adds into your line-ups. Enough about Matt, let’s get into some week 3 rankings!

Top 5 QB’s

#5 Matt Ryan

#4 Ben Roethlisberger

#3 Andrew Luck

#2 Aaron Rodgers

#1 Tom Brady

He is also known as the G.O.A.T. Brady is playing at home against a Jags defense that gave up 359 yards passing to Ryan Tannehill
last week. Jacksonville is 18th against QBs on the year and I expect that number to ascend even higher after Tom Brady shreds the Jags like mozzarella at Gino’s East in Chicago. The Jags are only surrendering 74 yards rushing a game; so expect a heavy aerial attack like a B-52 from the defending champions.

Top 5 RB’s

#5 Latavius Murray

#4 Jamaal Charles

#3 Le’Veon Bell

#2 Marshawn Lynch

#1 Adrian Peterson

They don’t call him “all day” for nothing. He hasn’t been able to do any celebration dances in the first two games but he’ll surely put 6 on the board this week. Through the first two games, the chargers have given up 244 rushing yards and opposing running backs are averaging 4.7 yards a carry. A.D has to be salivating at this matchup and I think this is where he separates himself from the pack. He’ll score twice this week.

Top 5 WR’s

#5 Brandon Marshall

#4 Emmanuel Sanders

#3 Demaryius Thomas

#2 Julio Jones

#1 Antonio Brown

He should be the number one WR even on his bye week. He is making defenses look silly. It’s getting to the point where it doesn’t look like defenses can game plan for him. The 5’11 behemoth is playing like a man amongst boys. Revis Island might be the only cornerback to slow him down. Since Darele isn’t on the schedule, Antonio Brown should be regarded as the weekly number one wide receiver in all formats

Top 5 TE’s

#5 Tyler Eifert

#4 Travis Kelce

#3 Jimmy Graham

#2 Greg Olsen

#1 Rob Gronkowski

If you’ve watched at least 13 minutes of football, you understand that Gronk is the best TE in football. I don’t need to give any stat lines, or how good opposing defenses are against the tight end position. He’s unstoppable and always has the biggest point margin amongst his fellow tight ends.
