NFL Fantasy Island Week 3 Start em Sit em

4 years ago


1. Robert Griffin III Redskins QB (vs. Cincinnati)

Outlook: RG3 was a little bit more human through the air last week (interceptions ah!), but he still put in another incredible performance and I see no reason not to start him again this weekend against the Bengals. His two rushing touchdowns provided HUGE points for owners. There will come a week where the bottom drops out on this guy, but until that happens Im suggesting you start him. Im doing it. A few more solid weeks and I might have to retire RG3 to the Pantheon of Never Sits along with Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson. Hes not there yet (its only been two weeks people!) but I see no reason to doubt this man so far. Start with confidence and if he crushes it again this Sunday, next weeks Fantasy Island will be sponsored by RG3.

2. Miles Austin Cowboys WR (vs. Tampa Bay)

Outlook: Tampa Bay got torched by the New York Giants last weekend. Seriously. Eli Manning threw for 510 yards on them and WR 1 & 2 for the Giants had fantastic afternoons (Nicks & Cruz). Miles Austins TD was the only bright spot for the Cowboys last week, so expect him to get a lot of targets from Tony Romo as the Dallas offense tries to get back on track.

3. C.J. Spiller Bills RB (vs. Cleveland)

Outlook: I suggested a start last week, and he delivered for fantasy owners big time. No, wait, using lowercase letters completely undersell what this guy has done in the NFL this season. Allow me to try it again. BIG TIME!!!! Spiller has been such a fantasy monster that the programmers of Madden 13 video game have upped his stats. That is unprecedented. If he goes off again, Im retiring him to the Pantheon of Never Sits, but after the Panthers made me look like a total moron on Thursday night, Im sticking with a safe bet to get some cred back. Oh, and Cleveland sucks.

4. Ryan Mathews Chargers RB (vs. Atlanta)

Outlook: One of the premiere running backs in the NFL returns to action this week after missing significant time due to a broken clavicle sustained in week 1 of the preseason. If you are not a doctor, I should point out that the clavicle is nowhere near the legs, so I dont expect Mathews to suffer any effects when it comes to his speed and mobility. The only real question mark here is his durability. Hes been injured the last two seasons, so Im suggesting a start and praying he doesnt get hurt again.

5. Vernon Davis 49ers TE (vs. Minnesota)

Outlook: Im pretty high on Davis vs. the Vikings. Hes been incredibly solid so far, and Niners QB Alex Smith is currently enjoying a franchise record 216 pass attempts WITHOUT an interception. Thats insane. A huge reason why Smith has those numbers is that Davis is a reliable check down AND design play option. His upside is his YAC (yards after catch) so I expect him to put up some TD points for you as well.

Lets just hope he can get a bit more air this time.
