Week 3 Fantasy Busts: Sony Michel, Justin Fields amongst matchup worries

As most bust candidates do, they’ve the plain upside, however Michel’s unsure function and hard matchup maintain him from being a must-start even when Darrell Henderson (ribs) out. Many have been chomping on the bit to start out Fields, however we all know a rookie’s first begin can go one among some ways.

As at all times, we’re not coming with weak decisions who ought to clearly journey the bench; quite, we’re taking a look at guys who completely might make us look foolish for putting the label on them.

WEEK 3 FANTASY: Sleepers | Begin ’em, sit ’em

Final week, we nailed the operating again place. Mark Ingram and the Raiders’ RBs had been flat-out busts, and whereas Damien Harris did find yourself with a strong fantasy outing, a landing saved his recreation in a day that might’ve netted solely seven fantasy factors with out it. At quarterback, we accurately recognized Ryan Tannehill and Jameis Winston, as neither scored a landing. The large run continued with Corey Davis, DJ Chark, Tyler Higbee, Mike Gesicki, and Juwan Johnson (though all tight ends appear to be busts past a choose few.)

We whiffed on Julio Jones and bought blended outcomes on protection. Total, it was a strong week — our second straight week at ending within the inexperienced within the busts division.

Week 3 Fantasy Busts: Working backs

D’Andre Swift, Lions vs. Ravens (Vinnie Iyer). He’s nonetheless startable, however put together for disappointment. The Ravens are strong towards operating backs and can be extra susceptible on the again finish in a high-volume passing recreation. Plus, Jamaal Williams is consuming into Swift’s workload a little bit greater than anticipated.

Sony Michel, Rams vs. Buccaneers (Matt Lutovsky).  Even when Darrell Henderson shakes off his rib harm and performs, fantasy homeowners is likely to be anticipating extra work for Michel, who noticed 10 carries final week after Henderson exited. If Henderson is out, many will view Michel as a volume-based flex in commonplace leagues. You possibly can attempt him there, however both approach, his ceiling is low towards Tampa’s second-ranked run protection. You’re hoping for a brief TD, and even that is robust to return by towards Tampa. (Replace: Henderson is out.)

Week 3 Fantasy Soccer Busts: Quarterbacks

Tom Brady, Buccaneers @ Rams (Sparks).  Tom Brady has by no means confirmed the doubters unsuitable, proper? Properly, possibly he has, however this week goes to be completely different. Traditionally, the video games Brady has struggled in are ones the place he is pressured from proper up the center. Enter Aaron Donald. Brady is not probably the most cellular man, so if Donald is on, he can wreck the sport in a rush. Additionally, is not he due for one unhealthy recreation a yr the place the sports activities world overreacts and calls him washed? That is that probability! Do not bench him for simply anybody, however if in case you have a viable various, take into account it.

Derek Carr, Raiders vs. Dolphins (Iyer). Preserve the NFL passing yardage chief and scorching pickup parked towards a tricky protection that’s extra susceptible towards the run.

Justin Fields, Bears @ Browns (Lutovsky).  Fields appeared terrible in his first in depth regular-season motion final week, however that’s nothing new for rookie QBs thrust into video games round halftime. With per week to organize, he needs to be higher, proper? Possibly, however he’s not somebody you are feeling nice about in your single-QB lineups immediately. For those who actually wish to play Fields someplace, use him in DFS.

Week 3 Fantasy Soccer Busts: Huge receivers

Mike Evans, Buccaneers @ Rams (Sparks).  Evans has typically been shut down by elite corners. In Week 3, he is the most certainly candidate to be shadowed by Jalen Ramsey. Sufficient mentioned.

Deebo Samuel, 49ers vs. Packers (Iyer).  He is been too productive for many to take out of their lineups, however count on a giant letdown as he probably will get shadowed by Jaire Alexander everywhere in the discipline with no constant No. 2 huge receiver proper now.

Will Fuller V, Dolphins @ Raiders (Lutovsky).  Is Fuller going to lastly play? We’ll see. He missed Week 1 due to a suspension and Week 2 due to a private matter. He ought to miss Week 3 in your fantasy crew due to his QB scenario and Vegas’s surprisingly respectable protection.

Week 3 Fantasy Soccer Busts: Tight ends

Tyler Higbee, Rams vs. Buccaneers (Sparks).  Higbee was one among our picks to bust final week due to Darius Leonard, and he caught only one cross on one goal. This week, he will get Lavonte Davis and Devin White. Arduous cross.

Logan Thomas, Washington @ Payments (Iyer) . In shallow leagues, you might need higher choices than forcing him into a tricky spot regardless of the “revenge recreation” narrative.

Robert Tonyan, Packers @ 49ers (Lutovsky).  Tonyan’s Week 2 efficiency is sufficient to make him a “must-start” at this place, however we all know he comes and goes within the Packers’ offense, and this looks like a “goes” week, as San Francisco confirmed final week towards Philly the way it can clamp down on TEs after they’re not the No. 1 choices in an offense. Tonyan additionally had simply three targets, exhibiting he is even riskier in PPR leagues.

Week 3 Fantasy Busts: Defenses

Washington Soccer Group @ Payments (Sparks).  Washington’s protection carried a number of hype into the season however has been largely disappointing by way of two weeks. They’re twenty third in FPPG because it sits at present, and the Payments’ offense appeared to get again on monitor in Week 2. If Daniel Jones had success towards WFT, Josh Allen ought to do exactly that after which some.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Packers (Iyer). They maintain discovering methods to return by way of, however the Packers received’t allow them to do it once more given all their key accidents.

D/ST Los Angeles Rams vs. Buccaneers (Lutovsky).  Expertise alone has the Rams on the beginning/sit bubble, however the Bucs merely don’t permit many fantasy factors. Tom Brady will take some sacks and possibly even flip it over, however the Rams ceiling is decrease than ever even when it is a comparatively low-scoring recreation.
