Week 3 Fantasy Sleepers
Some players in fantasy football are must starts week in and week out. However, some you may want to start due to matchups or lack there of. Here are three top sleepers for week three.
1. Donald Brown vs. BUF– Brown will fill in for the injured Ryan Mathews in San Diego. The Chargers rely on an effective running game to open up Rivers’ and the passing game. Brown will be a hot commodity on the waiver wire this week, as he will see the bulk of the carries for the next few weeks while Mathews works his way back from a MCL sprain. Brown showed he is a more than capable fantasy back last year in Indianapolis, taking on most of the number one running back duties when Trent Richardson struggled to learn the Colts’ system. San Diego is coming off an emotional win over Seattle in week two, and they will travel to Buffalo to take on the undefeated Bills. I’m not sold on the Bills yet, and I expect the Chargers offense to move the ball easily against the Bills defense. Look for Brown to be a major impact this week.
2. Mohammed Sanu vs. TEN– Mohammed Sanu will be filling in for All Pro receiver AJ Green in week three which makes his stock rise significantly. Sanu should be the primary target in the Bengals passing attack that will be without Green and tight end Tyler Eifert. Quarterback Andy Dalton has shown chemistry with Sanu as they have connected on many deep balls throughout their time in Cincinnati, including last week coming through with a 76 yard touchdown. I expect to see Sanu score once again this week, as his targets will be unusually high.
3. Pierre Thomas vs. MIN– Thomas’ fantasy owners got a boost this week when the Saints revealed fellow running back Mark Ingram broke his hand and is out at least four weeks. Thomas should benefit the most from this as he has been relegated to mainly a third down change of pace back in New Orleans this season. Thomas should now be receiving more touches as he only averaged eight per game in the first two weeks. I would not be surprised to see Thomas get closer to 15-20 touches per game in Ingram’s absence. Look for Thomas to look like the number one back most fantasy owners anticipated he would be when they drafted him this summer.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/week-3-fantasy-sleepers/FF AnalysisFootballNews and UpdatesCincinnati Bengals,New Orleans Saints,NFL,San Diego Chargers,SleepersSome players in fantasy football are must starts week in and week out.
