The best and worst of fantasy football from NFL Week 3.
Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL
218 passing yards, 4 passing TDs, 1 INT, 107 receiving yards, 1 TD, 40.4 points.
The Ravens superstar had two straight weeks of 40+ points and 10 TDs in three games.
Khalil Herbert, RB, CHI
157 yards rushing, 12 yards receiving, 2 TDs, 29.9 points.
With David Montgomery out with ankle and knee injuries, Herbert will be a hot item on Waver Wire.
Jamal Williams, RB, DET
Rushing 87 yards, receiving 20 yards, 23.7 points.
I knew the Vikings had a bad run defense, but I figured it would be Dandre Swift to clean up.
Devonta Smith, WR, PHI
169 receiving yards, 1 TD, 26.9 points.
En route to the biggest game of his career, he got caught in some big-shot plays.
Mac Hollins, WR, LV
158 receiving yards, 1 touchdown, 25.9 points.
It was Hollins who led the Raiders in receiving for the second straight week on a team with Davante Adams and Darren Waller.
Mark Andrews, TE, BAL
89 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 24.9 points.
Like Jackson, Andrews scored big for the second week in a row.
Philadelphia Eagles DEF
6 points, 9 sacks, 1 recovered fumble, 18 points.
It was the Eagles who sacked Carson Wentz nine times and played the ex-QB’s best
Greg Zuline, K, NYJ
4 FG successful, 185 FG yards, 18.5 points.
Carson Wentz, QB, WAS
211 passing yards, 22 rushing yards, 1 lost fumble, 8.6 points.
Look closely at it: The whole thing was an illusion with Wentz coming out so small against Philly.
Tua Tagovailoa, QB, MIA
186 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 11.4 points.
I don’t know how he was allowed to play after apparently having a concussion before the half.
Darrell Henderson Jr., RB, LAR
17 rushing yards, 1.7 points.
After a fairly even first half, the Rams faced Kam Akers in the second half.
Justin Jefferson, WR, MIN
14 receiving yards and 2.9 points.
It was Week 2 of 2020, his rookie season, when he had just three catches in a game.
DJ Moore, WR, CAR
13 rushing yards, 2 receiving yards and 2 points.
When a WR gets six targets and rushes more than they receive yards, you know something is wrong.
Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI
23 receiving yards and 3.3 points.
The Bears’ top WR had his best performance of the season, recording two catches on six targets. Wow.
Tyreek Hill, WR, MIA
Received 33 yards and scored 4.3 points.
After last week’s big game against the Ravens, we only saw four targets against the Bills.
Jahan Dotson, WR, WAS
10 receiving yards, 2 points.
The rookie showed limited fantasy potential if he didn’t score a TD.
i hope you started
Rookie receiver Chris Olave is becoming a bigger part of the Saints’ offense week after week. For the second straight game, Olave had his 13 targets, but his eight of them against the Panthers for his team-leading 147 yards and his first NFL TD. was able to carry Should Michael Thomas miss time, he would be a solid starting option.
The Patriots traded him for Devante Parker in the offseason, but they certainly didn’t use him much in the first two games of the season. The former Dolphins WR he only had four targets in two games, but against the Ravens he had five catches and he exploded for 156 yards.
