- Game: Denver Broncos @ Seattle Seahawks [4:25 pm ET]Numbers to know: The last time these two teams met the stakes were rather high. Then a Broncos offense that had smashed pretty much every regular-season record was held to only 5.6 yards per pass attempt, and 4.8 per play overall.Why it will be awesome: Beyond the whole Super Bowl rematch thing, there's also the element of Peyton Manning, well, in the elements. During the Russell Wilson era the Seahawks have lost only once at home.Pick: Seahawks (-4.5)What's your pick?

- Game: Raiders @ Patriots [1:00 pm ET]Numbers to know: Through two games the Raiders have allowed an opposing quarterback rating of 109.7, the fourth worst rate in the league. Their defense is generally quite comforting, giving up a pretty incredible completion percentage of 77.1.Why it will suck: We all know the NFL is filled with surprises [hey look, the Texans are 2-0], But this one could be over by halftime. A rookie quarterback against Bill Belichick usually ends in tears.Pick: Patriots [-14.5]What's your pick?

- Not only did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lose 56-14 to the Atlanta Falcons last night, but they also may have lost their starting quarterback Josh McCown. It's believed McCown's thumb is sprained [he's heading in for an MRI], and well, a quarterback needs a healthy thumb.
Prior to Week 3, McCown had completed 67.86 percent of his passes for 362 yards, two TDs, and three INTs. Mike Glennon relieved McCown Thursday night and might be quarterbacking the Bucs for the foreseeable future.
Who should start at QB for the Bucs?

- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers allowed the Atlanta Falcons to score 56 points against them last night, yet the Tampa Bay D/ST came away from the game with 11 fantasy points. How is it possible that a team gives up 56 points in one game, but is still able to finish with a respectable fantasy day?
A fourth quarter pick-six surely helped, but is it time to do away with D/ST as a position in fantasy football?
Yes, the system is broken
No, I like getting cheap points

- 1. Tampa Bay is a terrible football team. Their QB situation is messy, their RB situation is messy, and their thought-to-be-good defense is messy. Special teams? Messy. At least Mike Evans has shown signs of being the guy they thought they drafted.2. Seriously, though. The Buccos are really, really bad.3. The Falcons can score... against poor defenses. Luckily the next good D they face isn't until Week 11 in Carolina. In the meantime, make like Jim Carrey on SNL and ride the snake.Ride the snake? Falcons aren't snakes, right?

- Mike Evans has been fairly quiet in the first two games, posting lines of 8.7 and 8.9 PPR points. However, the Buccaneers offense did look a little better in Week 2 and Josh McCown isn't going to run for two touchdowns every week, meaning we will start to see some touchdowns from their red zone targets, Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans.
Being that it is Thursday night, the Falcons defense isn't good and all the other narratives you can think of, this is the perfect game for Evans to post his first 100+ yard receiving and touchdown game.

- Marqise Lee will miss the Jaguars' Week 3 matchup vs. division rival Indianapolis due to a hamstring injury. “The hamstring can linger and if you continue to come back, come back, come back and you’re feeling 85-90 percent, you’re still going to have issues,” Lee said.
With Lee out, this will open a door for the Jaguars' other rookie receivers, Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson, and possibly even Tavarres King who they signed off the Panthers practice squad this week.
Will this result is a breakout week for fellow rookie WR Allen Robinson?
Yep, all aboard ARob train
Nope, he still needs time
No, the Jaguars are terrible on offense
Yes, was going to happen even with LeeShare this Story×Google+posted by: NPowellMediaOpinion

- Sammy Watkins - 2.12 FP/Ta, 7.5 Ta/G
You can start Watkins as a WR3 and expect WR2 numbers this week. San Diego gives up 2.41 FP/target & touch to the WR1.
Brian Quick - 1.74 FP/Ta - 9 Ta/G
Quick has been the top option in an bad offense. The Cowboys are only giving up 1.22 FPs/Ta, but the bad run DEF and Locker helped with that.
Mohamed Sanu - 2.78 FP/Ta- 4.5 Ta/G
The Bengals may let AJG rest, and Sanu makes a solid flex play. The Titans have surrendered 1.65 FP/Ta to WR1, but Donnie Avery isn’t a WR1 & Sanu's targets should increase.
All make nice plays
I only trust Watkins
Watkins and Sanu only

- Matt Asiata – 21 Week 2 touches – 1.04 FP/To
Talent isn’t always greater than opportunity should be Asiata’s bumper sticker. The Saints allow .65 FP/Touch, and Asiata should get 15 touches.
Lamar Miller – 14 To/G - .90 FP/To
Week 2 got out of hand. With Moreno out, Miller has his chance again and should find room against the Chiefs, allowing .63 FP/To.
Steven Ridley – 17.5 To/G - .60 FP/To
Ridley takes advantage of a lesser opponent; the putrid Raiders allow .95 FP/To. This is a game that favors Ridley, so expect a Week 2 type of game again.
I'm starting Ridley this week
I still don't know about MIller
Asiata for the ugly win!

- After two weeks, you've seen all the injuries at running back. You may have lost your first round pick due to an injury, suspension, or even a trade. Luckily, wide receivers are here to stay.Jordy Nelson is not usually in a stock watch card, but he is currently WR1 in most formats. Can he keep it up? Is the Rodgers-Nelson the top duo?There's no way Julian Edelman could keep up last year's pace, right? Well, he's WR6 in PPR already with just one touchdown.Jeremy Maclin has just eight catches, but two touchdowns. Can he keep it up?Whose stock is up?

- Did you draft Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas, or Rob Gronkowski? If not, chances are you are streaming tight ends. If so, this card is perfect for you.Gates had six catches for 81 yards in Week 1, so what? Wait, he had seven catches for 96 yards and three touchdowns in Week 2?! Against Seattle?! Is Gates the next ageless wonder?Zach Ertz cannot be covered, and he leads the NFL in big plays as a pass catcher. Is he the next great TE1?Niles Paul. Who?! If you haven't heard, you'd be wise to check him out. 12 catches, 185 yards and a TD.Whose stock is up?

- A popular breakout candidate, Zach Ertz [10 targets] has burst onto the scene with 163 yards and a TD [TE6]. However, his yards per catch average is almost twice his 2013 rate so his usage will need to be increased if he is to maintain his current production.
Owen Daniels' [11 TGTs] resurgence hasn't limited Dennis Pitta [18 TGTs] from his pass catching role in the Ravens offense. As he has yet to find the endzone, he sits at TE17, a prime buy low position for savvy managers.
Who finishes as a Top-10 TE?
Both Ertz and Pitta
NeitherShare this Story×Google+posted by: Jonathan_TTFOpinion
The Josh Gordon saga has reached its peak with the news of his reduced suspension.
The chance of Gordon returning after his extended absence and giving you elite numbers is still a mirage. This is a run-first team that may not change their approach 12 weeks into the season.
If your leaguemates view him as an elite player, sell your stock to invest in some who can ensure your playoff run. Trading him is a gamble, but stashing him 10 more weeks for hopeful production is as well. This is the time to sell.
Sell: His value has reached it’s peak
Invest: He will still be a studShare this Story×Google+posted by: aMILESupremeOpinion
