Our Week Three fantasy quarterback rankings began with two large query marks: Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger. Each questions have already been answered, and we’ll see neither of them in Week 3. We have already received Teddy Bridgewater and Mason Rudolph in right here by Monday at midday. Possibly, although, you could have one of many preseason “sleepers” who is popping into a fantasy soccer star: Lamar Jackson and, to a lesser extent, Josh Allen. Each of them are firmly in our high 10 for this week and would possibly reside there regularly because the season strikes ahead.

We have additionally found the opponent that apparently will make each  QB right into a beginning choice: Miami. This week, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys host the Dolphins, making them one of many favorites to guide the NFL in complete factors in Week 3. Prescott threw for greater than 400 yards in Week 1 whereas the Cowboys received Ezekiel Elliott again up to the mark. Now, it appears like 300 yards might be extra of his ceiling, however towards the Dolphins, that very effectively would possibly include at the least three landing passes.

There’s an fascinating duel between two fantasy starters in Cleveland this week, with Baker Mayfield going through off towards Jared Goff. After a sluggish begin, Goff and the Rams offense appeared nice within the second half towards the Saints and will be capable to deal with a robust Browns move rush. Aaron Rodgers (vs. Broncos) appeared extra like himself in a win over the Vikings and needs to be a fantasy starter in Week 3.

WEEK 3 PPR RANKINGS: Working again | Extensive receiver | Tight finish

We realized that Kirk Cousins and Cam Newton are at risk of underwhelming fantasy homeowners all season. Newton’s obvious incapability to run round has severely capped his fantasy potential. Cousins could merely not be adequate to shine in an offense designed to lean on the run.

Week 3 DFS Lineups: 
FD money | FD GPP | DK money | DK GPP | Y! money | Y! GPP

Final however not least earlier than we get into the rankings, Kyler Murray threw for greater than 300 yards for a second-straight week. It won’t all the time be fairly for the rookie, however in Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, it is trying just like the numbers on the stat sheet on the finish of the sport would possibly work out for fantasy homeowners counting on the No. 1 general choose Murray.

Week 3 Fantasy QB Rankings

These rankings are for traditional leagues with 4-point passing TDs.

1 Patrick Mahomes II, KC vs. BAL. This man is wonderful.
2 Deshaun Watson, HOU @ LAC. The Texans cannot cease permitting sacks on Watson. He is already been sacked 10 instances by way of two video games after being sacked a league-high 62 instances in 2018. An unpleasant Week 2 sport towards the Jaguars would not cease Watson from being a top-tier QB choice, and he ought to proper the ship towards a Chargers’ D that is allowed two passing TDs in every of the primary two weeks.
3 Lamar Jackson, BAL @ KC. Jackson confronted two weak defenses within the season’s first two weeks, however he appears improved as a passer and will get what’s at the least a impartial matchup in Week 3. You’ll be able to’t sit him till he cools off — if he ever does.
4 Dak Prescott, DAL vs. MIA. The Dolphins are fantasy soccer gold for opposing QBs. Lamar Jackson put up 33.6 fantasy factors on Miami in Week 1, and Tom Brady adopted that up with 24.7 fantasy factors in Week 2 that may’ve been greater if not for 2 defensive scores by New England. The Dolphins’ protection is so susceptible {that a} potential damage to Michael Gallup would not fear us one bit. So long as Prescott is throwing on this sport earlier than it turns into a mega blowout, he ought to have large numbers.
5 Russell Wilson, SEA vs. NO. Wilson rediscovered his reference to Tyler Lockett in Week 2, continued to have success throwing to DK Metcalf, and even discovered Will Dissly 5 instances for 50 yards and two scores. This offense ought to maintain cruising in Week Three towards a smooth Saints move protection.
6 Josh Allen, BUF vs. CIN. Allen has run for a landing in every of the primary two video games, averted the turnover bug in Week 2, and will get to face a Cincinnati protection that simply allowed 41 factors to the 49ers on Sunday. An improved receiving corps for 2019 has Allen trying like a begin most weeks as a result of his legs had been by no means in query.
7 Aaron Rodgers, GB vs. DEN
8 Carson Wentz, PHI vs. DET
9 Baker Mayfield, CLE vs. LAR
10 Jared Goff, LAR @ CLE
11 Tom Brady, NE vs. NYJ. Even when we classify New England as a workforce that prefers to run, Brady is difficult to take a seat with all of the weapons round him. The Antonio Brown connection appeared dynamite early Sunday, and there is nonetheless Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett for defenses to cope with, too. In Week 2, the Pats went four-wide on quite a few events to make themselves as powerful a canopy as attainable.
12 Matt Ryan, ATL @ IND
13 Philip Rivers, LAC vs. HOU
14 Kyler Murray, ARZ vs. CAR. Murray has thrown for greater than 300 yards within the first two video games of his NFL profession. He is nonetheless exhibiting moments of being a rookie, however in Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, it is trying like Murray will produce most of the time. Whereas the Bucs did not air it out towards Carolina in Week 2, Jameis Winston accomplished greater than 60 % of his passes and did not should cope with an excessive amount of strain, making this a good matchup for Murray to provide once more. 
15 Kirk Cousins, MIN vs. OAK
16 Matthew Stafford, DET @ PHI. The Eagles allowed Case Keenum to throw for 380 yards in Week 1, then gave up 320 yards to Matt Ryan on Sunday Evening Soccer. Stafford is a superb candidate as a fill-in should you personal Drew Brees.
17 Derek Carr, OAK @ MIN
18  Jameis Winston, TB vs. NYG. Winston supplied us with a little bit of hope on Thursday Evening Soccer in Week 2, finishing greater than 60 % of his passes and never turning the ball over. The Giants are a fantastic matchup for a quarterback, so should you’re in a little bit of a pinch, Winston may have one in all his larger video games of the season in Week 3. 
19 Jimmy Garoppolo, SF vs. PIT
20 Jacoby Brissett, IND vs. ATL
21 Cam Newton, CAR @ ARZ. Lots of you’ll have drafted Newton as a fantasy starter. In Week 2, he went 25-for-51 towards a subpar Buccaneers’ protection, and extra regarding, he solely tried to run on two events (choosing up no yards). If Newton goes to stay a pocket passer, his fantasy upside may be very capped, regardless of a very good matchup with Arizona in Week 3. (Replace: Newton would possibly miss Week Three due to a foot damage. Kyle Allen would begin in his place.)
22 Daniel Jones, NYG @ TB
23 Mason Rudolph, PIT @ SF. With Ben Roethlisberger out for the season in Pittsburgh, Rudolph is the brand new beginning QB.
24 Marcus Mariota, TEN @ JAX
25 Mitchell Trubisky, CHI @ WAS. Trubisky appeared like a enjoyable fantasy choice together with his potential to run, however after two horrible weeks, he appears like he must at most sit in your bench (or waiver wire) till additional discover.
26 Andy Dalton, CIN @ BUF
27 Gardner Minshew, JAX vs. TEN. Minshew ran for 56 yards on Sunday along with main what would’ve been a game-tying/successful drive if not for a failed two-point conversion. The Titans protection needs to be extra forgiving than the Texans, so in a two-QB league, Minshew made his case as a attainable begin.
28 Teddy Bridgewater, NO @ SEA. Should you’re a Brees proprietor searching for a savior, we do not suppose it will be Bridgewater in entrance of the 12th Man in Week 3. Possibly per week of preparation will assist Bridgewater discover a rhythm that was missing in L.A., however not sufficient to make him price beginning in fantasy.
29 Joe Flacco, DEN @ GB
30 Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA @ DAL
31 Luke Falk, NYJ @ NE
32 Case Keenum, WAS vs. CHI
