Fantasy Football Week 3 Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em: Kirk Cousins ​​Finds Its Sub-Prime Groove Again

This is an interesting week for many Fantasy managers to know who you can trust in your lineup. We’ve been let down by several star players — see Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Derrick Henry, Najee Harris, DJ Moore, DK Metcalf and Kyle Pitts to name a few — and it’s led to some frustrating 0-2 start .

I could tell you to relax, but nobody wants to start the season 0-3. The best thing you can do is trust the players in good matchups, and hopefully this is the week they deliver.

For example, I have faith in Metcalf and Pitts, as you’ll read below, with their head-to-head confrontation in Seattle. I also expect this to be the breakout week for Dameon Pierce, and Joe Burrow and Ezekiel Elliott should recover from a slow start.

However, I don’t have much faith in Brady, Wilson and Aaron Rodgers playing at their usual level, especially Brady and Wilson with a deranged receiving corps. The good news is that there are players you can turn to, especially at quarterback, and you can read more about them here.

We hope you don’t start this season 0-3, so hopefully the players you count on are performing at a high level this week. And for those of you who are 2-0 or even 1-1, let’s keep stacking those wins and enjoy the luck. Trust me, there are plenty of Fantasy managers dealing with the misery of being scoreless heading into Week 3, and it’s no fun.

Kirk Cousins ​​played another bad game in prime time. In Week 2 in Philadelphia on Monday night, Cousins ​​melted against the Eagles, and it seemed like he thought cornerback Darius Slay was on the Vikings. Cousins ​​threw three interceptions and ended up with just 10 Fantasy points.

But he should rebound this week against the Lions. He loves to face Detroit, and in his past five encounters with the Lions, he averaged 296.4 passing yards per game with a total of 11 touchdowns and only one interception. In three of his last four games with Detroit, Cousins ​​has scored at least 25 Fantasy points.

The game is home during the day, so Cousins ​​don’t have to worry about being afraid of the dark. And this Lions defense has already enabled Jalen Hurts in Week 1 and Carson Wentz in Week 2 to score at least 24 Fantasy points.

It was disappointing to see Cousins ​​face the Eagles Monday night in Week 2. But he will bounce back in Week 3 and has a chance to be a top-five Fantasy quarterback in this matchup.

Chargers (vs. JAC)

The Chargers defense played well in limiting the Chargers to 21 points in Week 2, and Los Angeles could have had multiple interceptions against Patrick Mahomes in that matchup. Last week against the Raiders, the Chargers got three interceptions against Derek Carr, along with six sacks. The Chargers DST has a shot at a big week and could be the No. 1 DST in this scoring period.

  • Cowboys (at NYG)
  • Saints (at CAR)
  • Browns (vs. PIT)

Broncos (vs. SF)

With two games against mediocre fouls in Seattle and Houston, the Broncos has underwhelmed DST. While the defense has only allowed 26 points in that period, Denver has only five sacks and one turnover. Being at home against the 49ers might help, but this is the best offense the Broncos have seen this year. The Broncos DST is an inexpensive entry-level option in most leagues for Week 3.
