Last week was weird on nearly every diploma. Dak Prescott was vulturing dashing touchdowns from Ezekiel Elliott. Every Drew Lock and Jimmy Garoppolo failed to finish their video video games (and Tyrod Taylor didn’t even start his). Gardner Minshew and Josh Allen every threw for a ton of yards, whereas a scorching Tom Brady start was adopted by barely higher than 20 passing yards throughout the final quarter and a half. The large question in our Week Three fantasy QB rankings is how a number of Week 2 should we think about in, and the way in which loads was merely randomness that will happen in any specific week of fantasy soccer?

Brady’s almost pretty much as good a spot to start as any — he threw for nearly 200 yards throughout the first half and was cruising, nonetheless an infinite lead meant he slowed down and accomplished with 217 yards. Bruce Arians has the reputation of a “passing coach,” nonetheless Brady was as a consequence of start leaning further on his working sport finally. This may be the yr. On the alternative side, Teddy Bridgewater threw for 367 yards nonetheless two interceptions and no touchdowns. No, you don’t want Bridgewater over Brady, however it’s proof of how sport stream can matter.

One misunderstanding worth eliminating after Week 2 is the idea that Ryan Tannehill can’t be a productive fantasy QB because of the Titans run an extreme quantity of. A great deal of working Sunday didn’t stop Tannehill from throwing two touchdowns or further for the ninth straight frequent season sport (and on this case, he threw four touchdowns). His upside could also be lower than anyone like Jared Goff, who could throw 60 passes in a given week, nonetheless Tannehill deserves every-week starter consideration for his consistency. We’re moreover going to stop hating on Matt Ryan’s garbage-time manufacturing because of he moreover locations up numbers in shut video video games, too (though he was helped by some good self-discipline place after three first-half Cowboys fumbles).

It was moreover encouraging to see the Bengals let Joe Burrow strive higher than 60 passes on Thursday night as they labored on a comeback. It’s obvious the rookie may be free to do his issue all season prolonged, and that options dashing that makes him an intriguing fantasy chance. With 10 days off after a second straight loss, Burrow ought to come back out in a position to go in Week Three in the direction of an Eagles safety that’s been underwhelming thus far. 

And we merely want to remind you methods good Kyler Murray is. Hopefully you drafted the person who can do this.

Justin Herbert was a shock starter in Week 2 as Tyrod Taylor (chest) sat on the sideline making an attempt sad with trainers surrounding him. Whoever begins for the Chargers is a minimum of worth consideration in 2-QB/superflex leagues, however it probably is not going to be obvious until later throughout the week who that’s. Herbert could actually be the additional attention-grabbing play proper right here, exhibiting he could every run and throw in his first career start. If phrase is Herbert will protect the job, he’s worth grabbing even in one-QB leagues of 12 teams or further. 

We’ll have to protect a watch this week on two notable accidents. Drew Lock was taken down laborious on his correct (throwing) shoulder and didn’t return to Sunday’s sport, and Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t return from halftime after having fun with by way of an injured correct ankle for lots of the first half. Neither figures to be worth starting in single-QB leagues subsequent week within the occasion that they return, nonetheless nearly every QB is important in two-QB/superflex leagues.
