Tyrod Taylor|Buffalo Bills
Week 3 stats: 21 for 29, 277 yards, 3 touchdowns
I have spent this offseason, since the Bills signed him, singing the praises of Tyrod Taylor and this is the last call to grab him. Taylor has been a top fantasy quarterback each of the Bills’ first three games and it doesn’t look like he is going to slow down. Not to mention, he hasn’t even rushed for more than 43 yards in a game yet. Taylor has made his mark through the air and will likely have big rushing performances down the road.
Alfred Blue|Houston Texans
Week 3 stats: 31 carries, 139 rushing yards, 1 touchdown
Arian Foster is getting closer to playing, but if he misses week four, Blue could be a big fantasy sleeper against a horrible Falcons defense. Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden tore the Falcons up for 122 yards and four touchdowns, Blue could have similar success if he gets the start.
Karlos Williams|Buffalo Bills
Week 3 stats: 12 carries, 110 yards, 1 touchdown
Williams has been a monster and a draft steal for the Bills for the first three weeks of the season. He’s scored a touchdown in every game so far and has consistently ran hard and fought for tough yards. LeSean McCoy has been injured since the end of the preseason and only amassed 16 yards on 11 carries against the Dolphins. Even if McCoy plays in week four, Williams has been too good to not see the field and is the Bills goal line back.
Antonio Andrews|Tennessee Titans
Week 3 stats: 12 carries, 49 yards, 1 catch, 2 yards
It’s anyone’s guess what happened to Bishop Sankey, but he may have found his way into the doghouse. Sankey only saw seven touches to Andrews’ 13, so it looks like a change has been made at running back. The Titans are off in week four, but Andrews is worth grabbing in case he does hold the running back job.
Lance Dunbar|Dallas Cowboys
Week 3 stats: 10 catches, 100 receiving yards, 5 rushing yards
Through three weeks, Dunbar has reeled in 21 catches for 215 yards. With Brandon Weeden at quarterback, Dunbar is going to be relied upon heavily and his week three performance proved that. Dunbar isn’t just a PPR option anymore but needs to be universally owned.
Kenny Britt|St.Louis Rams
Week 3 stats: 7 catches, 102 yards
Britt has paired together two solid performances in the absence of Brian Quick. In the past two games, Britt has caught nine passes for 146 yards and a touchdown. It looks like Quick won’t be seeing the field anytime soon, so Britt should continue to be Foles’ number one receiver.
Ted Ginn Jr.|Carolina Panthers
Week 3 stats: 4 catches, 93 yards
Cam Newton needs someone to throw to, so why not Ginn Jr.? Ginn Jr. has strung together three solid weeks and appears to be Cam Newton’s favorite target. As long as Jerricho Cotchery is out and Devin Funchess doesn’t see the field, Ginn could be a constant contributor for the Panthers.
Rishard Matthews|Miami Dolphins
Week 3 stats: 6 catches, 113 yards, 2 touchdowns
Matthews has gotten at least nine points in the Dolphins first three games and it’s officially time to stop ignoring him. Matthews has been Tannehill’s second favorite target behind Jarvis Landry and the Dolphins have been throwing the ball a lot. However, one concern is that DeVante Parker saw quite a lot of work against the Bills and could be sneaking into the starting lineup at receiver.
