Week 3: Get 'Em In, Get 'Em Out

SHARE:

Two weeks in and there is absolute carnage throughout the NFL.  Roethlisberger, Brees, Darnold, Foles, Newton.  The list rolls out as the NFL is filled with big names out for extended periods of time.  Luckily I am here to tell you out of who is still standing, who you should get in your lineup, and who you should get out.



Tennessee Titans @ Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Get 'Em In
    • Derrick Henry - One week is a fad.  Two weeks is a pattern.  And for two weeks Derrick Henry has been the bell-cow and focal point of the Titans offense.  The first two weeks of the year have seen Henry post 28 and 17 fantasy points, respectively, and he has done it by dominating the touches.  Deion Lewis appears to be a complete after thought in this offense so far this year, and history shows the running game is what dominates on a short week.  Start Henry again with confidence.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Dede Westbrook - Westbrook's surging value as we bestowed upon the season was based mainly on Nick Foles as his quarterback.  As the legend of Gardner Minshew II grows, Westbrook's fantasy value does not.  Last week against a run of the mill Texans defense all Westbrook could muster up was one catch for three yards.  Now, on a short week against a Titan's defense that is quite stingy against the pass, Westbrook should not see your lineup this week.  The Titans just held the Colts wideouts all under 25 receiving yards besides TY Hilton.  Westbrook does not even sniff Hilton's talent.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Buffalo Bills



  • Get 'Em In
    • John Brown - The Bengals are fresh off of their home opener where they got torched by what was thought to be a weak 49ers offense.  The Bengals allowed 41 points and 572 yards, 313 coming in the air.  With Josh Allen looking much improved in year 2, and John Brown clearly establishing himself as his number one, Brown is safe to keep in the lineup for the foreseeable future.  Brown has snagged seven balls in each matchup so far this year.  That remains obtainable.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Andy Dalton - Andy Dalton has been VERY good through two weeks totaling over 720 yards and four touchdowns.  But he is also taking an absolute beating behind a weak offensive line.  Dalton has been taken down nine times already this year, and now faces a Bills defense that does not get the credit it deserves.  This could be a tough week for Dalton and the Bengals.

Detroit Lions @ Philadelphia Eagles


  •  Get 'Em In
    • Kenny Golladay - A week ago I benched Kenny Golladay on my own team because of his matchup with the Chargers.  Specifically Casey Heyward.  Golladay came out and casually posted eight catches for 117 yards and his second touchdown in as many weeks.  We may look back on this performance against Casey Heyward as the day Golladay proved to be a true top-tier wide receiver in this league.  Now on the docket is a very bad Eagles secondary that Golladay can take advantage of all day.  I like him to keep things rolling this week on the road.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Kerryon Johnson - Kerryon had his own coming out party against the Chargers last week also.  But this week he takes his show on the road to the City of Brotherly Love where the Eagles run defense awaits.  Through two games the Eagles have allowed a total of 85 yards.  That is not 85 yards each game, that is total.  The Eagles have taken some losses on their front four but remain strong, and Kerryon is extremely hard to trust this week.  You have been warned.
New York Jets @ New England Patriots


  • Get 'Em In
    • New England Patriots Offensive Skill Players - For the second straight week the Patriots are 20+ point favorites.  Not sure that has ever happened in the history of the game before.  With that said, if you own Patriots players you roll them out.  Brady, Brown, Gordon, Edelman, Sony, White.  As history shows us someone typically misses out on the fun in a given week with the Patriots offense, but you cannot risk trying to look like the genius and bench say, Sony, then he ends up going for 110 and three scores.  The Patriots are going to score a ton again this week.  Get your guys in and hope yours is not the one that misses out on the party.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Robby Anderson/Jamison Crowder - Each of these guys were WR3's with Sam Darnold at quarterback.  Once he went out with the kissing disease, Robby Anderson fell off the fantasy radar and Crowder became a flex play in my opinion.  Now down to Luke Falk after Trevor Siemien got knocked out for the year, you cannot trust any Jets pass catchers.  Things are once again ugly for the Jets until Darnold gets cleared to play again.

Oakland Raiders @ Minnesota Vikings


  • Get 'Em In
    • Kirk Cousins - There is a VERY good chance I eat my words on Monday in regards to this pick, but if not now, when?  Cousins threw the ball 10, that's right, 10 times Week 1.  And then he followed that up with an inopportune interception last week at Green Bay, ultimately icing the game.  With his massive contract looming over him, he is hearing the chirps, and it is time to show up.  At home against a suspect Raiders team presents him every opportunity to do just that.  With the amount of quarterback injuries throughout the NFL, Cousins SHOULD be a very strong play this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Derek Carr - I completely bought into Derek Carr last week in the DFS world and was burned by it.  And that was against a very poor Chiefs defense.  Now this week, on the road, in Minnesota, against a top defense?  Nothing about that sounds good.

Baltimore Ravens @ Kansas City Chiefs



  • Get 'Em In
    • Lamar Jackson - You have to now.  You have to absolutely start Jackson every week now until he gives you a reason not too.  Now in a week where it will be a battle of young guns, Mahomes and Jackson, points will be scored, and Jackson will be posting plenty of them.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Damien Williams - Damien Williams was one of the strongest hyped fantasy players coming into 2019.  All that hype has equated to a total of....34 rushing yards.  Woof.  On top of that, he has a knee contusion that has him currently not practicing.  So even if he goes on Sunday, he will be less than 100 percent against a tough Ravens defense.  Williams has BUST written all over him.

Atlanta Falcons @ Indianapolis Colts


  • Get 'Em In
    • Marlon Mack - Mack was a player to worry about coming into the season in regards to a time share with Naheim Hynes.  Through two weeks, Mack has put those concerns to rest, showing he is a true workhorse totaling 47 touches, tied with Christian McCaffrey for the most in the league.  Last week was a down week output wise, but I would continue to ride him this week against a favorable opponent in the Falcons.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Eric Ebron - Last year's numbers were just far too high to reach again in 2019.  Through two weeks Ebron has fallen back to mediocrity and is even being out snapped by fellow tight end Jack Doyle.  Ebron is just flat out a weak play right now and not worth the risk.

Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Aaron Jones - Well, would you look at that.  The Packers are running the ball.  Jones plowed through the Vikings defense a week ago 23 times for 116 yards and a score.  The Broncos run defense is run of the mill, so look for Jones to keep plowing along.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Courtland Sutton - I feel like Sutton is so close to breaking through.  So, so close.  I just don't think it happens yet.  The Packers defense is much improved, and should make it a long day for Joe Flacco.  That, and the Broncos look driven to get Royce Freeman really going in the run game.  Sutton is still waiting on that big play, that big day, and I think he waits just a little while longer.

Miami Dolphins @ Dallas Cowboys


  • Get 'Em In
    • Ezekiel Elliot -  I think this is the week Zeke eats.  And eats for two.  Cowboys come in at over 20 point favorites and have been firing on offense.  Prescott should come out gunning, and once they get ahead, you could see a steady dose of Elliott to get him heading in the right direction.  Just to be bold, let's say 130 yards and two scores for Zeke this week.  Eat Zeke, Eat.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jason Witten -  Witten coming out of the booth and scoring touchdowns in back to back weeks has been a nice story.  Hell, its puts one big smile on my face. But at 37 years old, and in a game that should not be close at all, what will be the point of Dallas marching him out there?  Witten could see a very small snap count, and probably take a week off from visiting the end zone.

New York Giants @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Evan Engram - Rookie quarterback.  No one else to throw the ball too.  Massive security blanket. Expect Daniel Jones to look Engram's way early and often.  Engram is a safe play in Week 3.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Buccaneers Running Backs - This is a good looking matchup for a running back, if the Buccaneers actually had a solidified number one back.  However, through two weeks we have seen all three backs on the field have some sort of success, and some sort of failure.  You just do not know who is going to be who on a given week.  Look to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as good plays for Tampa this week, but not the running backs.
Carolina Panthers @ Arizona Cardinals


  • Get 'Em In
    • Christian McCaffrey - McCaffrey laid a complete egg a week ago against a weak Tampa Bay defense.  But that was on a short week.  Now with an extended layoff, and what appears to be Kyle Allen, not Cam Newton, leading the team Sunday, McCaffrey should get a ton of touches.  He should be the entire offense this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Curtis Samuel - Volume has not been a problem for Samuel, but catch rate has.  Last week Samuel saw 13 passes come his way, but only managed to reel in five of them.  Now playing with either a hurt Cam Newton or Kyle Allen at quarterback, I don't see those numbers improving at all.  If anything, the targets will go down substantially.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ San Francisco 49ers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Vance McDonald - It appears Mason Rudolph has found his favorite target.  McDonald is coming off a monster fantasy stat line for a tight end with seven catches, 38 yards, and two scores.  Rudolph looked his way consistently, and it is clear he is his number one target.  Working as a safety blanket for the young quarterback, McDonald is poised to post another strong showing.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • JuJu Smith-Schuster - I want to be clear on this, you're not actually benching JuJu.  I would find it wild that you have three better receivers than him.  But more so make sure you temper expectations. Backup quarterback or not, the volume should still be there.  But what is not is Ben's big arm, hindering JuJu's big play potential, and the continuity the two of them had formed.  JuJu will still get the ball, but instead of say 80 yards and a touchdown, I think you need to be more prepared for 50-60 yards and no touchdowns.

New Orleans Saints @ Seattle Seahawks


  • Get 'Em In
    • Tyler Lockett - Lockett is quietly becoming a top wideout in the game today, and it is time people take notice.  Locket pulled in 10 receptions last week on 12 targets for 79 yards.  This week he is back home and gets another good looking matchup against an average Saints defense at best.  Lockett is a no brainer WR2, borderline WR1 this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jared Cook - Cook has a total of four catches for 62 yards this year.  Now he has Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback instead of Brees, and that does not make me love him anymore.  Cook has spent most of his career as a boom or bust tight end, and this year is chalking up to be a bust.

Houston Texans @ Los Angeles Chargers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Keenan Allen - Keenan Allen will be a target hog for the foreseeable future.  With Hunter Henry down for the count, Allen saw an uptick in usage last week as Rivers looked his way 15 times.  Allen was able to pull in eight of those for 98 yards and was the target on a ball in the end zone that was picked off.  With Gordon still holding out, and Mike Williams playing in a limited fashion because of a banged up knee, it's either Ekeler or Allen, and that's it.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Philip Rivers - Houston's defense is not great.  But it is also not bad.  Those are the matchups I hate the most in fantasy.  Now it seems things keep getting more and more difficult for Rivers as everyone around him, offensive line included, is dropping like flies.  Due to the rest of the quarterback injuries around the league, you may have to play Rivers this week.  However, the pedestrian stat line he posted a week ago of 293 yards and no scores looks to be well in the realm of possibilities again this week.
Los Angeles Rams @ Cleveland Browns


  • Get 'Em In
    • Cooper Kupp - If you did not already know Cooper Kupp was back to full health, he showed you last week with his tackle breaking 66 yard catch and run for a score against the Saints.  Week 3 enters a road matchup against the Browns and a pretty strong pass rush that should have quarterback Jared Goff looking to get the ball out fast.  Enter Kupp.  He is the safest play this week out of the Rams wideouts.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Nick Chubb - A week ago the Rams held Alvin Kamara and the Saints rushing attack to only 57 yards.  Chubb now gets to face that same defense that has Aaron Donald standing right in the middle of it.  The Browns greatest weakness, you could argue is in fact their offensive line.  Chubb could struggle to find success this week with Aaron Donald and company forcing themselves into the Browns backfield time and time again.

Chicago Bears @ Washington Redskins


  • Get 'Em In 
    • Allen Robinson -  The Redskins secondary is in fact the walking wounded.  Already down Fabian Moreau and Quinton Dunbar, Dominique Rodgers Cromartie stepped in his place last week against Dallas and immediately tore ligaments in his ankle landing him on the IR.  This basically leaves Josh Norman (who looked like burnt toast against Dallas) and whatever else Washington can scrounge up to play defensive back this week against Chicago.  Robinson has been looked to 20 times already this year by Mitchell Trubisky, and they have a great shot on Monday night to link up in the endzone for the first time this season.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Tarik Cohen - In PPR leagues a year ago, Tarik Cohen averaged nearly 15 points a game.  Jordan Howard was then traded to Philadelphia, making it seem it was time for him to take off.  Instead, the early camp reports of the Bears being in love with rookie running back David Montgomery came true, leaving Cohen on the line of being fantasy irrelevant.  Week 2 saw him receive only four touches for 18 yards and caught only two balls for seven yards.  As fast as Cohen burst onto the fantasy radar, he has fallen off.
