The WN Fantasy Football Report: Week 3 Starts and Sits

Last week was a wacky one in football. Jameis Winston and the Bucs pulled off a huge upset in The Benz, while Andrew Luck couldn’t find his way off of Revis Island. Both those events brought my Beat the Pooch Survivor Pool from 76 people to SIX. Fantasy was even harder to project.

JD did yet another fantastic job. He told you to start Terrance Williams who walked away with 18 points and to bench LeSean McCoy, whose 13 points are not acceptable for a first round RB1.

Teddy Ballgame must have been engulfed with his toddler, because his Johnson and Johnson picks were spot on, telling you that David Johnson was a good flex play and that Andre and Chris Johnson should remain on your bench.

My sit of the week, DeMarco Murray, couldn’t have been any worse, and despite finding the end zone, it still only gave Pierre Garcon 14 points, a number that two dozen WRs beat last week. My benching of the entire Broncos TE situation proved correct as well, as all three TE options combined for a mere 12 points. I did unfortunately tell you to bench the Jets defense, but who saw that coming?

Jarvis Landry and Greg Olsen were quality starts, but Drew Brees was a bust. I don’t think anyone expected what happened Sunday in NOLA so I get a pass. Saucy T nailed his Carson Palmer start, but did advise you to bench Tom Brady, which I did. Luckily, I had Ryan Tannehill and was still able to walk away victorious.

We are a few experts short this week, but that doesn’t mean we won’t bring you the same top notch advice. Who is in the Wayniac Nation’s crystal ball this week?

The WN Fantasy Football Report: Week 3 Starts and Sits

Wayniac Nation put a rough week one behind us and looked better on our starts and sits for week two. Unfortunately for J.D. who is a huge Atlanta Falcons fan, he was dead on about sitting Matt Ryan against a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense. Ryan registered roughly 12 points which is not going to win you many fantasy games in today’s NFL. I was on point in telling you to sit both RGIII and Reggie Bush. Bush tallied 32 total yards while seeing less touches than Joique Bell for the second week in a row. RGIIIs injury woes continued and it appears he may be a sit for the rest of the season. He tallied three points before leaving Sunday’s bout. I will admit I swung and missed on sitting Antonio Gates, but if you saw a seven catch, 96 yard, three touchdown output from the 34-year old against the league’s best defense, please let me know below and come write for us!

The big news was the rash of fantasy mega-stars who are now out for the foreseeable future due to injury or suspension. Zygi Wilf sure made it sound like Adrian Peterson will never play in a Vikings uniform again. Jamaal Charles suffered the dreaded high-ankle sprain and appears to be sidelined for a at least a month. A.J. Green, DeSean Jackson, Doug Martin, Mark Ingram, Ben Tate, Ryan Mathews and Jordan Cameron highlight a list of players that have been absent already with injury and very little insight on when they will return. And Toby Gerhart straight up stinks.

So with significant fantasy stars already on the pine, who can you turn to this week? Week three is a pivotal point in the fantasy season. If you are 0-2, you need a win. If you are 2-0, a 3-0 start puts you at a huge advantage for a playoff spot. This week, we hope to bring you some help in solidifying your run for the playoffs.
