Week 3 QB Rankings and Streaming Options

QB rankings and streaming advice for Week 3 of the 2018 fantasy football season. The second week of the NFL season will be remembered as the time Ryan Fitzpatrick celebrated his second consecutive 400+ passing yard performance by turning into Conor McGregor, and prompting a response by Troy Aikman. At the ripe age of 35, Fitzpatrick has proven that you’re never too old to reach your peak NFL potential. Fitzpatrick’s 72.3 fantasy points are the most through two team games by any player in the last 15 seasons. Is it enough to secure Fitzpatrick the starting position after Jameis Winston returns from suspension next week? We will soon find out. Fitzpatrick’s sensational performances on and off the field overshadowed another rising star, Patrick Mahomes, whose six touchdowns against the Steelers tied Len Dawson for the Chiefs’ single-game record. His 10 total touchdown passes thus far are the most ever by a single player through the first two games of a regular season. And for one more stat, Mahomes and Fitzpatrick have combined to throw for 1,401 yards, 18 TDs and 1 INT in those two weeks. Any. Given. Sunday. My week was not as exciting as Mahomes’ or Fitzpatrick’s, largely because I failed to pick Fitzmagic once again. Luckily for the Broncos though, Case Keenum was able to bounce back from his frustrating first half performance to lead a game-winning drive and take the Broncos 2-0. You could reach and call Foles tripling last week’s fantasy points a bounceback, but now it’s Carson Wentz’s turn for his bounceback performance.

TwoQB Case Keenum 14.5 23

Bounceback Nick Foles 15.7 19
This week, we saw five quarterbacks with over 30 fantasy points. In Weeks 1 through 16 last season, there were 17 total 30+ fantasy performances. Given that one of those in Week 2 was a backup quarterback, streaming is more relevant than ever before.
