Welcome to Week Three of NFL Fantasy on Fan Duel
Updates will be made as needed leading up to week one kick offs.
Each week I’ll be posting players I am strongly considering for my Fan Duel football line ups each week. I’ll also include QB/WR stacks and injury news you should be watching for possible value priced reserves who may benefit from those situations with extended play time.
The Injuries started to pile up on week 2 in the NFL
Injured Running backs: A Peterson MIN, A Foster MIA, D Martin TB, A Abdulah DET, J Stewart CAR and D Whitehead SD leading the list.
Injured Wide Receivers: D Moncrief IND and D Baldwin SEA.
Injured Quarterbacks: J Cutler CHI and J McCown CLE.
But there is also some good injury news, J Charles KC RB is expected to play (on a limited basis). T Eifort CIN TE is expected to return this week and C Ivory JAX RB is also expected to play.
Week 3 Top Scoring Game Lines: ATL at NO -3 (54), SD at IND -3 (52), DET at GB -7.5 (48), WAS at NYG -4.5 (46), OAK at TEN -1.5 (47)
Low Scoring Games: CLE at MIA -9.5 (41.5), MIN at CAR -7 (43), SF at SEA -9.5 (40), DEN at CIN -3 (41)
You want to be sure to get as many players from the ATL at NO on Monday Night, OAK at TEN and the SD at IND games into your line ups.
Chicago plays at Dallas on Sunday night and Chicago is a complete mess with defensive injuries and there’s a very good chance that B Hoyer will start at QB for J Cutler (hand). The Dallas DEF looks like a solid play and it could very well be a Prescott, Elliot and Bryant coming out party against a crippled defense.
Cleveland has as much of a mess as Chicago (maybe worse), strongly consider a MIAMI stack of Tannehill/Landry/DEF
