Fantasy Football Week 3: Start ’em, sit down Bleacher Report


Matt Patterson / Associated Press

As we do every week, we’ll end this column by asking more questions from the Bleacher Report app in a quick style.

jdrills1 dig in the scrap heap: “Mike Davis or Russell Gage at flex in PPR?” “

Russell Gage (DraftKings DFS Value: $ 5,100) the Atlanta Falcons has been a pleasant surprise so far this season, going over 100 yards in Week 1 and scoring a touchdown last week in Dallas. This hot start gives him the edge over Mike Davis of the Carolina Panthers, who is a huge question mark for Christian McCaffrey.

It is a wide help for the receiver npow: “Who are the two who made their debuts with Hollywood Brown, DJ Moore and Corey Davis? “

Corey Davis of the Tennessee Titans has a great game with the Minnesota Vikings, but it’s hard to get it through DJ Moore (((DraftKings DFS Value: $ 6,100) of the Panthers or Marquise Brown (DraftKings DFS Value: 6000 $) of the Baltimore Ravens. Moore is the best receiver on a team likely to play from behind, while Brown’s clash with the Kansas City Chiefs has shootouts all over the place.

rbaker57 needs very specific help: ” [Dallas] Goodbye Mike [Gesicki?] »

It’s an easy call. The Philadelphia Eagles offense is a mess, while Mike Gesicki (DraftKings DFS Value: $ 5,000) put out a huge 8/130/1 game last week against the Buffalo Bills. Gesicki to the end.

Darrell Henderson Jr. des Rams de Los Angeles a qoolwhip qonfused (understood?): “Is Henderson real? I just traded James Conner and have to replace him. “

With Cam Akers (chest) and Malcolm Brown (finger) both injured, Darrell Henderson Jr. (DFS DraftKings value: $ 5,400) is a good bet to lead the Los Angeles Rams running backs into touchdown on Sunday against the Bills. But this backfield has the makings of a committee attack. It could be Henderson one week and Brown the following week. Trusting one of them as a weekly starter is a risky bet.

Mamo1711 feels froggy: “Should I consider benching Patrick Mahomes in a bad game in favor of Gardner Minshew?” “

In short: no. Yes, Patrick Mahomes (DraftKings DFS Value: $ 7,400) gets a tough Crows team on Monday night. But you don’t bench Mahomes – ever. Last year against Baltimore, he threw for 374 yards and three touchdowns.

More QB questions from jedistone: ” Drew [Brees], [Ryan] Tennehill or [Gardner] Minshew. «

It’s hard to believe that I don’t recommend Drew Brees here against the Green Bay Packers, but he hasn’t done very well in both starts of the season. Ryan Tannehill had four touchdowns last week and gets a Vikings defense that has looked horrible this season, but the game here is Gardner Minshew II (DraftKings DFS Value: $ 6,400) against the Miami Dolphins. Minshew has thrown three assists in both games this season, and the Dolphins defense lost cornerback Byron Jones on Thursday night.

Finally, Mayurpatel needs two of these three players: “Need a full flex and RB in PPR; Jerick McKinnon, Mike Davis, Marquise Brown. “

Jerick McKinnon’s workload issues have already been discussed. That leaves Mike Davis (DraftKings DFS Value: $ 5,100), who should see at least 15 touches for the Panthers against the Los Angeles Chargers, and Marquise Brown (DraftKings DFS Value: $ 6,000) in the aforementioned potential shootout in Charm City.
