We thought after week 3 of the National Football League it would be important to breakdown the top players at each position in Fantasy Football. There were some insane football games in week 3, some that went down to the wire and some that had teams winning we did not expect. Let’s break down the top 5 fantasy studs of week 3.
Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks – It is really hard to say Russell Wilson is not the MVP of the early NFL season. Wilson tore up the Cowboys defense yesterday. He finished with 315 yards passing and 5 touchdowns. He was a fantasy nightmare for his opponents and the Dallas Cowboys.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots – You want to know a sleeper? Rexy Baby, ate this week. He finished with 2 rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown. He only had 49 yards rushing and 49 yards receiving but he put points up this week because of those touchdowns.
Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings – Are you kidding me? The rookie exploded this week. He finished the game with 7 receptions for 175 yards and 1 touchdown. The LSU speedster is starting to come on. Do not let him get comfortable. I was going to put Tyler Lockett here for scoring three touchdowns but I had to give Jefferson the vote today.
Jimmy Graham, TE, Chicago Bears – HEY JIMMY, you are still playing? The old man had a day yesterday. Bears beat the Falcons which was huge and Jimmy Graham scored twice to help them. He finished with 6 receptions for 60 yards and two touchdowns.
Indianapolis Colts – TWO WEEKS IN A ROW? The Colts are playing some nasty defense right now. They had two touchdowns, 3 interceptions, 2 sacks and a safety. Jeez, that defense is clapping right now. I know it was just the Jets, but come on, they are playing lights out.
