Fantasy Football 2017 -- Week 3 Rankings Update

Here's a look at the updated Week 3 rankings for standard scoring with a few player notes along the way...

Quarterbacks

1.  Aaron Rodgers, GB
 
2.  Tom Brady, NE
 
3.  Matt Ryan, ATL
 
4.  Derek Carr, OAK
 
5.  Cam Newton, CAR
 
6.  Matthew Stafford, DET
 
7.  Drew Brees, NO
 
8.  Ben Roethlisberger, PIT
 
9.  Russell Wilson, SEA
 
10.  Philip Rivers, LAC
 
11.  Carson Wentz, PHI
 
12.  Kirk Cousins, WAS
 
13.  Dak Prescott, DAL
 
14.  Jameis Winston, TB
 
15.  Carson Palmer, ARI
 
16.  Marcus Mariota, TEN
 
17.  Jay Cutler, MIA
 
18.  Alex Smith, KC
 
19.  Trevor Siemian, DEN
 
20.  DeShone Kizer, CLE
 
21.  Andy Dalton, CIN
 
22.  Eli Manning, NYG
 
23.  Tyrod Taylor, BUF
 
24.  Jacoby Brissett, IND
 
25.  Joe Flacco, BAL

Notes: Ninth is a touch low for Wilson based on draft status, but one touchdown pass and only 356 yards thru two games doesn't help. Ninth is also still a QB1 and expecting a bounceback if not rock star performance from Wilson against the Titans. ... Vegas put the Raiders-Redskins over/under at 54, the highest in Week 3. That kind of scoring potential is a great reason to use Kirk Cousins. Use is one thing, but I'll wait another week before believing Washington's passing game is trustworthy after what we've seen so far. ...Mariota won't have rookie Corey Davis against a Seahawks' imposing secondary that has allowed one touchdown pass to date.

Running backs

1.  Le'Veon Bell, PIT
 
2.  Kareem Hunt, KC

11.  C.J. Anderson, DEN
 
12.  Dalvin Cook, MIN

28.  Mark Ingram, NO
 
29.  Joe Mixon, CIN
 
30.  Jordan Howard, CHI
 
31.  Chris Thompson, WAS

35.  James White, NE
 
36.  DeMarco Murray, TEN
 
37.  Chris Johnson, ARI
 
38.  Bilal Powell, NYJ
 
39.  Duke Johnson, CLE
 
40.  Samaje Perine, WAS
 
41.  Terrance West, BAL
 
42.  Robert Kelley, WAS -- Update: Unlikely to play, per report.
 
43.  Giovani Bernard, CIN
 
44.  Shane Vereen, NYG
 
45.  Alvin Kamara, NO
 
46.  Paul Perkins, NYG
 
47.  Kerwynn Williams, ARI
 
48.  Jamaal Charles, DEN
 
49.  Jalen Richard, OAK
 
50.  D'Onta Foreman, HOU
 
51.  Wendell Smallwood, PHI
 
52.  Orleans Darkwa, NYG
 
53.  LeGarrette Blount, PHI
 
54.  Charles Sims, TB
 
55.  Adrian Peterson, NO
 
56.  Andre Ellington, ARI
 
57.  Chris Ivory, JAC
 
58.  Jeremy Hill, CIN
 
59.  Jerick McKinnon, MIN
 
60.  Matt Breida, SF
 
61.  Mike Tolbert, BUF
 
62.  Thomas Rawls, SEA
 
63.  Dion Lewis, NE
 
64.  Tyler Ervin, HOU
 
65.  C.J. Prosise, SEA
 
66.  Robert Turbin, IND
 
67.  Branden Oliver, LAC
 
68.  Jamaal Williams, GB
 
69.  Alex Collins, BAL
 
70.  DeAndre Washington, OAK

Notes: Lynch faces a Redskins defense that couldn't handle Todd Gurley in Week 2 and doesn't have a major threat at nose tackle. Biggest concern for Lynch fans involves how much production Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington siphon from him. ... McCaffrey hasn't completely wowed yet on the NFL level, but decent chance that changes in Week 3 as Carolina compensates for the loss of Greg Olsen against a leaky New Orleans defense. ...The Patriots announced Rex Burkhead is out for Week 3. That should mean more work for James White, who is a borderline RB2 in points-per-reception formats. ...The late Saturday night reports that Robert Kelley (rib) is not expected to play in Sunday night's matchup against the Raiders means Chris Thompson owners can even feel better about their guy as a low-end RB2/flex. Thompson likely won't receive goal-line work and head coach Jay Gruden acknowledged this week that giving the smallish back a heavy workload isn't ideal. However, Thompson should lead the team in snaps which means more opportunities even if Samaje Perine handles early downs. Consider Perine a risk-reward Flex option.

72.  Torrey Smith, PHI
 
73.  Zay Jones, BUF
 
74.  Chris Conley, KC
 
75.  Russell Shepard, CAR

Notes: J.J. Nelson has six touchdowns in last seven games. Good enough for me. ... Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are in position for good games against a meh Bucs secondary -- except Sam Bradford is out once again.  The Case Keenum drag is real, dropping both receivers out of must-start WR2 range, but don't go out of your way to sit because the talent is too good. ... Nobody goes out of their way to start Browns and Colts receivers, but with Cleveland and Indianapolis are facing each other, such planning becomes more palatable. ... Classic Bill Belichick defensive plan shaping up against Houston: Take out the top receiver thresat -- DeAndre Hopkins -- and let the Texans figure things out from there. Good luck, Houston. 

Tight ends

1.  Zach Ertz, PHI
 
2.  Rob Gronkowski, NE
 
3.  Travis Kelce, KC
 
4.  Jordan Reed, WAS

12.  Jared Cook, OAK
 
13.  Hunter Henry, LAC
 
14.  Jimmy Graham, SEA
 
15.  Austin Hooper, ATL

22.  Jesse James, PIT
 
23.  Ed Dickson, CAR
 
24.  Antonio Gates, LAC
 
25.  Austin Seferian-Jenkins, NYJ

Notes: With Rob Gronkowski a tad banged up and the Giants defense struggling against tight ends, Zach Ertz gets my No. 1 slot. Hey, he entered Week 3 third in receiving yards among all players. ... Ben Watson and Julius Thomas aren't ranked as starters, but their respective matchups against the Jaguars and Jets give them starter upside.

Fantasy Football -- Week 3 rankings

Just like that, two weeks are in the books. Not exactly high-level football to date, let's be honest.

Then again, fantasy football owners should largely be happy with the overall running back depth this season.

RELATED: FIRST LOOK AT REDSKINS VS. RAIDERS

Sleepers including Buck Allen, Tarik Cohen and Chris Carson have emerged and several teams have multiple viable options to date. Jordan Howard and Ezekiel Elliott owners aren't exactly thrilled at the moment. Understood. Hang tight, especially the Elliott faction, though I didn't love the Cowboys offense overall entering this season now that teams had a chance for a longer look at the Dak Prescott-led attack.

Meanwhile, passing game struggles with the Bengals, Giants and Redskins are a tad concerning, though A.J. Green and Odell Beckham owners should resist trade offers from those attempting to buy low.

What's going on with Alex Smith and the Chiefs actually seems sustainable considering the playmakers available -- Kareem Hunt, Tyreke Hill, Travis Kelce -- while the Eagles' heavy pass-run imbalance gives Carson Wentz weekly QB1 consideration. 

RELATED: WEEK 2 NFL POWER RANKINGS

Those with high-end tight ends are on edge after a rough Week 2 saw Greg Olsen exit with a multi-week foot injury while Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Reed owners hope their guys won't miss time.

Let's get to the Week 3 rankings and note those higher -- Carson Wentz, Jay Ajayi, Buck Allen, Chris Thompson, Kelvin Benjamin, J.J. Nelson, Hunter Henry  -- and lower than normal. Check back for updates or hit me up on Twitter -- @benstandig -- with questions. ​

Fantasy Football -- Week 1 Waiver Wire

Fantasy Football -- Week 1 Waiver Wire

Say whatever you want about the NFL product, but there's always interesting plot twists each and every week. Week 1 of the 2017 season proved no exception which is why the upcoming waiver wire is all kinds of intriguing.

>>>CLICK HERE FOR FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 1 WAIVER WIRE PICKUPS<<<

Injuries are often devastating and that's certainly the case with No. 1 overall pick David Johnson. The Cardinals running back could be out for weeks or (Gasp!!) the season which puts his owners into freak out mode as they ponder Plan B, C and D. Allen Robinson and Danny Woodhead owners are also in the market for help after their guys suffered injuries. Meanwhile, nobody gets excited about Alex Smith and yet he suddenly turned into a fantasy hero, at least for one week. Perhaps there's hope for more, but second-year passers Carson Wentz and Jared Goff could offer more after sparking 2017 debuts. Then there's the overreaction to disappointing performances. Andy Dalton, Josh Doctson and Frank Gore owners are nodding.

Don't cut any player on your team who struggled in Week 1, but don't be afraid to pull the trigger on adding help either. It's a tricky balance and one not easily articulated for every specific scenario. The best advice is look for upside whenever possible and fill in depth chart holes as needed. Cool? Cool. Here's a look at some passers, runners and receivers who might help the cause in Week 2 and beyond.

* For those who stream defenses, the Raiders (vs. Jets), Bengals (vs. Texans) and Ravens (vs. Browns) should be among your best and most likely free agent options.
