Let’s take a look at the top 5 Fantasy WR plays for Week 3.
1. Julio Jones – Atlanta Falcons
vs. Dallas Cowboys
Jones is my top WR play just like last week. He has 276 yards receiving already to go along with 2 TDs. This week he gets a crack at an underrated but overmatched Dallas secondary. Truth be told, nobody matches up well with Mr. Jones.
Matt Ryan will force the ball to Julio a ton as the Atlanta running games putters once again. I expect 9 or 10 catches this week again for 110-125 yards and a score.
For those of you that took Julio in their draft – congrats!
2. Antonio Brown – Pittsburgh Steelers
vs. St. Louis Rams
Brown is more like a 1B than a #2 this week – he has been incredible so far.
Brown is averaging nine catches per game for 164 yards and one score each week – unbelievable! He is impossible to cover, tough to bring down and he and QB Ben Roethlisberger seem to have a cosmic connection.
Brown is guaranteed 12 targets each week and with that you can expect a ho-hum 8 catches, 100 yards and a TD with tons of upside. Antonio is on track to lead the league in receiving again this year – gotta love this guy!
3. Odell Beckham – NY Giants
vs. Washington Redskins
Beckham had a superb first half of last week’s game but the G-Men inexplicably forgot about him in the second half. Don’t expect that to happen again – it just can’t!
He had seven catches for 146 yards and a TD in the first half of last week and would have gone over 200 if Eli didn’t ignore him in the second.
Odell is a freak of nature that demands the ball. My guess is that he’ll be force fed on Thursday night en route to another 100 yard, 1-2 TD performance.
4. Demaryius Thomas – Denver Broncos
vs. Detroit Lions
Thomas has yet to catch a TD pass – surprising but he did go off for eight catches and 116 yards last week. You have to think that the Broncos will be better and that Thomas will be the main beneficiary.
My guess is that Demaryius gets off the schnide this week, scores his first TD and hauls in over 100 yards receiving. T
homas is a Stud – no reason to keep him out of your lineup this week!
5. AJ Green – Cincinnati Bengals
vs. Baltimore Ravens
Green has been disappointing – just 108 yards receiving so far this year.
But he is still elite and will get going. Against a suspect Ravens secondary this could be his spot. Cincinnati has been lucky to be winning without contributions from Green – he will have to be featured sooner or later.
Expect 100+ yards receiving and a TD this week as Green goes off and finally pays off his patient owners.
