NFL Week 3 Start’em Sit’em

Start’em

QB- Andrew Luck
Monday night was the first time in his career that Luck lost back-back games. Luckily, the Colts are playing a Jaguars team that mightily struggles against the pass. Luck should have a big day and have no issues finding receivers throughout the afternoon.

QB- Tony Romo
Although the Rams are getting hit hard with the injury bug, they were able to put up an impressive performance against the Buccaneers on Sunday, resulting in a win. However, that shouldn’t stop Tony Romo from having a big day. The Rams have a very solid run-defense, so Romo will have to beat them through the air. Look for Romo to have plenty of opportunity to drop back and throw on Sunday.

RB- Giovani Bernard
Bernard continues to show promise that he can be an elite back in the NFL. He will be facing a Titans defense who allowed 220 total rushing yards to the Cowboys on Sunday. Bernard will be getting plenty of touches that may even lead to a career day.

RB- Arian Foster
Foster had a monstrous Week 2, and look for that to continue as the Texans battle the Giants. The New York Giants have one of the league’s worst overall defenses, so Foster will have yet another 100 plus yard week.

WR- Julio Jones
Jones is listed as probable for Thursday Night’s matchup vs. Tampa Bay, so it is likely he will play. Jones is playing at an extremely high level, and should be targeted early and often, as the Bucs tend to struggle against the pass.

WR- Dez Bryant
Bryant will get lots of targets throughout the afternoon, as he remains Tony Romo’s go to receiver. Bryant had a breakout game vs. The Titans last Sunday, so look for a repeat performance.

TE- Zach Ertz
Ertz is off to a great start to the year as he is averaging 23.39 yards per catch, and 81.5 yards per game. Ertz will be facing a Redskin’s team, who gave up big plays to Jaguar’s tight end Mercedes Lewis this past Sunday. Look for Ertz to continue his impressive season.

K- Adam Vinatieri
The Colts will be playing against a very weak team this Sunday in Jacksonville. Vinatieri will be getting lots of work throughout the game, and should put up double digit points.

DST- Buffalo
The Bills are coming off a very impressive performance vs. The Miami Dolphins, where they knocked out two of their running backs. The Chargers will be without starter Ryan Matthews, so Donald Brown will get the bulk of the touches. The Bills front four will be applying all kinds of pressure led by Mario Williams, so look for the Bills defense to have another dominating performance.

Sit’em

QB- Philip Rivers
The Buffalo Bills have one of the top defenses in the league led by their dominating defensive line. Rivers will be under heavy pressure throughout the game, so the Bills will have chances to get turnovers. Look elsewhere for s quarterback for Week 3.

QB- Ben Roethlisberger
The Steelers have not scored a touchdown since the second quarter of their first game. It only gets tougher for the Steelers as they face off against arguably the league’s best pass defense in Carolina. It would be wise to sit Roethlisberger this Sunday.

RB- Donald Brown
The Bills shut down the Miami run game on Sunday. Brown will be filling in for the injured Matthews, but don’t expect too much from the veteran back. Brown will struggle getting past the line of scrimmage on most plays.

RB- Frank Gore
Gore will have a very difficult match-up against a cagey Cardinal’s defense, who allowed only 70 rushing yards to the Detroit Lions, averaging just 3.9 yards per carry. Gore will really struggle with this matchup.

WR- Dwayne Bowe
Bowe will be in tough as he will be matched up a very underrated corner in Brent Grimes. Bowe is the no doubt number one receiver on the Chief’s; however, he will struggle to get open on Sunday, and not receive many targets.

WR- Victor Cruz
The Giants are an absolute mess, and Cruz will have a challenging matchup as he will face off with one of the league’s best corners in Jonathan Joseph. Cruz has yet to produce this season, and you will have to wait at least another week for this to happen.

TE- Delanie Walker
Walker and the Titans will be facing off against the AFC’s best defense in Cincinnati. Walker won’t receive the amount of targets as he has the first two weeks, so there will be a lack of production this week for Walker.

K- Shaun Suisham
With the Steelers struggling on offense, Suisham will not get many opportunities to put up points on Sunday. It would be very smart to sit Suisham.

DST- Tampa Bay
The Buccaneers will be on the road Thursday night, facing off against the Falcons. Atlanta has a very high powered pass offense, who should torch the Buccaneers secondary come Thursday. Definitely replace your defense if you are starting the Bucs.
