HOT OR NOT 🔥❄️ (D.Reed)
Kirk Cousins (Cleveland @ Washington)
I love Captain Kirk’s matchup at home vs Cleveland this week! Every QB that has faced Cleveland in its first 3 weeks had at least 2 TDs, and I don’t see why Cousins can’t keep that trend going!!! Cousins has been far from stellar this year, but this week against a generous Browns defense, he could very well be a top 10 QB!!!
Andy Dalton (Miami @ Cincinnati)
Like Cousins, Dalton is at home against a very exploitable defense in Miami. Dalton has been a bit shaky so far this season, but I expect this game to be a bit of a coming out party for “The Red Rifle”!! This is the first week of byes, and Dalton would be a great plug and play for the likes of Aaron Rodgers and Carson Wentz owners!!! (Green Bay and Philly both idol)
Carlos Hyde (Dallas @ San Francisco)
I was a bit worried about Hyde after his foot injury that kept him out of 9 games last season, but so far he’s been running with both power and explosion!!!! Hyde is fresh off of a 100 yd, 2 TD game and is looking to duplicate that performance against a Dallas defense that allows 4.8 yards per carry!! Dallas is ranked 28th in the league against the run so I expect for Hyde to have a very solid outing!!!
Jeremy Hill (Miami @ Cincinnati)
Jeremy Hill is coming off of a huge game against arguably the best defense in the league in the Denver Broncos!!! This had to be a tremendous confidence boost for Hill who has been a fantasy “no show” the first 2 weeks. If Hill can put up a 97yd, 2 TD stat line against the defending champs, he can surely put up similar numbers against the Dolphins right??
Allen Robinson (Indianapolis @ Jacksonville)
Robinson owners were finally rewarded in week 3 when he finally got in the end zone twice against Baltimore!!! Coming off of a phenomenal 2015 campaign, I think we were all expecting more from Robinson right off the bat. This week he draws the Colts, and I think everyone will finally get the production that they were waiting for!! I see Robinson as a strong WR 1 this week against a banged up Colts secondary!!!
Marvin Jones (Detroit @ Chicago)
Marvin Jones channeled his inner Calvin Johnson last week to the tune of 6 catches, a whopping 205 yds, and two scores!!! Jones is the clear cut number one guy in the Lions pass attack where Stafford likes to chuck it a ton. Jones has the makings of being an elite WR 1 in many games this season!! This week he’s on the road against an error-prone Bears defense, so I expect for another solid game for Jones!!!
Zach Miller (Detroit @ Chicago)
Miller put up a 78 yd, 2 score day on the road against Dallas last week!!! Miller is one of those TEs who flew under the radar and went undrafted in most leagues, but this week he’s up against a Lions defense that already surrendered 5 TDs this season. He’ll definitely be worth a waiver stream!!! It’s a very good chance that Miller will find paydirt against a team that allowed more fantasy points to opposing TEs than any other team this season!!!
Minnesota Vikings (vs New York Giants)
When you can go up against the likes of Aaron Rogers and Cam Newton and do more than hold your own, you are more than deserving of a spot on this list!!! In every game this season, the Vikes have held their opponents under 16 points a game which is amazing considering their last two games were against Green Bay and Carolina!!! The Vikings are the hottest defense in the league and should perform just fine at home against Eli and company this week!!!
Jameis Winston (Denver @ Tampa Bay)
Winston had one heck of a game against the Rams last week where he threw for over 400 yds and 3 scores!!! I can’t see him having that caliber of a game against one of the leagues best in the Denver Broncos. I believe the Broncos will look to make Winston as uncomfortable as possible and try to force him into as many errors as possible. I look for Denver to bring Winston back to down to Earth this week!!!
Jay Ajayi / Kenyon Drake (Miami @ Cincinnati)
I hate the words RUNNING BACK BY COMMITTEE!!! With the recent injury to starting RB Arian Foster, it looks to be a time share in the Miami backfield. Until Foster returns it seems like the Dolphins’ backfield is a bit cloudy so I would stay away from both of these guys until there is more clarity. Miami draws a tough Bengals defense on the road so that doesn’t help out their situation one bit.
Golden Tate (Detroit @ Chicago)
With the emergence of Marvin Jones, Tate’s stock has dropped tremendously!!! Tate was pretty darn good last year alongside the likes of Megatron, leaving fantasy owners thinking his numbers would be the same if not a tad better in Calvin Johnson’s absence. However, that clearly isn’t the case. Last game, Tate took a backseat to Jones, Riddick and Ebron in the passing game!!! So until he proves himself to be the complimentary receiver he once was, he’s better left riding the pine!!!
Martellus Bennett (Buffalo @ New England)
It looks like Rob Gronkowski is working his way back to full strength and soon Bennett will become pretty fantasy irrelevant!! Once a big name, Bennett is now as inconsistent as they come!! With Gronk getting closer to 100 percent, it’ll be a safe bet to leave Bennett on the bench until further notice!!!
Buffalo (@ New England)
Buffalo is coming off of its best defensive performance of the year forcing 4 INTS and a touchdown as they surprisingly upset the Arizona Cardinals at home. This week, Buffalo is on the road in Foxborough as the face the Patriots in a divisional showdown!! I won’t expect a repeat of week 3 from the Bills going up against Belichick and company!!! Hostile environment plus a Hall of Fame coach equals a rough night for the Buffalo D!!!
