I’m undefeated in three fantasy leagues this year. My best team, “Soy Guillermo,” won Monday night on Josh Allen’s four TDs and the Bulls’ pick six. Your team may also be on a roll but be aware that the thrill of victory can quickly turn to the agony of defeat. Hit the jump and watch out for the fantasy billboard giddy-ups! And wow below! For week 3. Be sure to check the NFL’s injury reports before submitting your lineups.
McJones, QB – Who would have thought that a “get right” game would mean facing the Baltimore Ravens? Their once-terrible pass defense has fallen to rock bottom in the NFL. Tua Tagovailoa threw for a fantasy record 61 points last week. Getting half of that total would be a solid outing for Jones.
Kirk Cousins, QB Leave it to Cousins to stink up the joint on Monday night. The Eagles intercepted and pinned him three times, but it could have easily been six. This week he goes from being Philly birdseed to feasting on Detroit cat nip. Cousins had 340 yards and two TDs last time out against the Michigan Mavericks.
David Montgomery, RB – Monty looked like the second coming of Walter Patton last week with his jokes and sharp cuts. He averaged 8.1 yards per carry and had 122 yards against a solid Packer D. If only the confidence of Chicago’s mind would have given him a goal-line carry.
Bracehall, RB — Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice (aka MetLife Stadium), rookie Brace looks like Superman. He will defeat the evil Bengals with his super vision and powerful bursts of speed. Maybe the Jets should break out the new “stealth black” helmets and uniforms soon. After all, kryptonite is green.
Amon Ra St. Brown, WR — I wasn’t sold on the guy with the best name in football this preseason, but I was wrong. He is currently 4th in WR scoring behind such bright stars as Ja’Marr Chase, Davante Adams and Justin Jefferson. This is the last time you’ll see Amon-Ra “Giddy Up!” I will see. section because you must start it every week for the rest of the season.
Jacoby Meyers, WR – The “law firm” is McJones’ favorite target. Let’s stack Meyers with Jones and pile on the points against a hapless Raven secondary.
Kyle Pitts, TE – Falcons coach Arthur Smith, when asked about the Pitts’ lack of production, remarked, “It’s not fantasy football. We’re just trying to win.” 4th pick wants to get more than two catches a game. Maybe then Atlanta will start winning.
Tua Tagovailoa, QB – The Bulls held Super Bowl champion Matthew Stafford to 15 fantasy points and Ryan Tannehill to just 4.9 points. Tua has the advantage of great targets, but don’t chase last week’s points against the best defense in the NFL.
Tom Brady, QB – Brady will be without WRs Mike Evans (pending appeal of his suspension) and Chris Godwin this week. Julio Jones and Russell Gage have been sent off. The Bucs just signed Cole Beasley, who would be the third-oldest WR in the NFL if active. I hear WR Kenny Golladay can be had for the low price of $28M and a key lime pie.
Rashad Penny, RB — I don’t like the matchup against a good Atlanta run D and I don’t like Penny’s lack of volume, averaging nine carries a game. Keep saving your penny for next week against the Detroit Kittycats.
Devin Singletary, RB – No singletery goal line for Buffalo. He is also not a receiver. The Bills have nine TDs in two games and Singletary has none. If you want a back running 30-50 yards with no receptions or TDs, start singletary.
Mike Williams, WR – Trade Williams now if you can. Its value will never be high. Yes, he blew Keenan Allen out last week. But after reviewing the tape, Williams had zero separation, and all eight of his catches were contested. Throw in Justin Herbert (check injury status) and I’m off Williams.
Darnell Mooney, WR – Two plays, two receptions, four yards. Nothing to see here. Come along.
Evan Engram – Maybe Jacksonville’s hotness agrees with Engram, but he still can’t catch the ball. His 11 drops last year were tied for second in the NFL. A first-round pick of the Giants in 2017, he was all but forgotten by Mark Bavaro and Jeremy Shockey. I only remember his stone hands.
