Start/Sit

START Tom Brady @ Denver Broncos

Frankly, Tom Brady has looked his age thru the first two weeks and has invoked criticisms for his turnover worthy throws not unlike Jameis Winston of last year. However, Week 3 is the turning point, or at least we should see something that more closely resembles vintage Brady. “Tom Terrific” will have his full complement of weapons against another ailing defense with question marks at each level of said defense.

The Broncos defense is allowing: a completion percetange of just under 70%, are bottom third in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game, and have sacked the quarterback just twice thus far (only two teams have fewer sacks). Given that the Broncos will be without their starting quarterback Drew Lock and top wideout Courtland Sutton, the Bucs may put this one away early and lean on the running game late. Still, this matchup is conducive to Brady having an efficient, QB1 worthy performance for your fantasy teams.

START Joshua Kelley @ Carolina Panthers

Kelley is here to stay folks! Justin Jackson may be active in Week 3 but Kelley should continue to get double-digit touches against what continues to be a poor run defense in Carolina. The Panthers defense has proven to be a safe-haven for opposing running backs as they’ve allowed a league worst 36.5 fantasy football points to the running back position per game. Their league worst six rushing touchdowns allowed through two weeks, at a minimum, solidifies a FLEX level floor for Kelley in Week 3.

START CeeDee Lamb @ Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson has been playing so well that the Seahawks’ awful pass defense isn’t being mentioned. Seattle is currently allowing 42.5 fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position (most in NFL). They are particularly bad at defending the slot position. Seattle has allowed 27 receptions to receivers out of the slot. CeeDee Lamb leads all rookie receivers in catches (11) and yards (165) through two weeks and has run 91.5% of his routes from, you guessed it, the slot. Consider that Russell Gage (12/9/114) and Julian Edelman (11/8/179) did against Seattle in Weeks 1 and 2 respectively. Lamb has a legitimate shot at being WR1 Overall this week.
