Baltimore Ravens vs. Washington Football Team
It’s safe to say that the Ravens are going to win this game.
What To Expect From Baltimore
This feels like the game where Lamar Jackson reminds people that he’s a top-five QB in the NFL.
What To Expect From Washington
Don’t be surprised if we see Kyle Allen in this game. Things could get ugly fast for Washington.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Lamar Jackson
If you’re playing against Jackson this week be prepared to lose.
Los Angeles Chargers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This game would be more exciting if Chris Godwin wasn’t hurt.
What To Expect From Los Angeles
Tampa is going to pressure Justin Herbert early and often, which could open up favorably one on one matchups for his receivers.
What To Expect From Tampa Bay
If Leonard Fournette is out expect Ronald Jones to see a decent amount of touches. Mike Evans and Scott Miller are solid plays even against a stout pass defense.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Keenan Allen
Allen will be the key to a Chargers upset in this contest.
Seattle Seahawks vs Miami Dolphins
This game feels like a sneaky shootout candidate.
What To Expect From Seattle
The Russ for MVP train should roll through Miami’s shaky defense. Start your Seahawks.
What To Expect From Miami
Seattle’s pass defense is not stellar, lending QB1 upside to Ryan Fitzpatrick this week. Start your Dolphins players if you must.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Russell Wilson
Minnesota Vikings vs. Houston Texans
Two unexpected 0-3 teams clash in what should be a generous game for fantasy.
What To Expect From Minnesota
If the Vikings want to win they’ll need to run the ball with Dalvin Cook.
What To Expect From Houston
If the Texans want to win, expect to see them rely heavily on David Johnson.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Dalvin Cook
Cook may be the play of the week at the RB position.
New Orleans Saints vs. Detroit Lions
The Saints face an exploitable Lions defense in a must-win game.
What To Expect From New Orleans
Once again expect big things from Alvin Kamara.
What To Expect From Detroit
The Lions will need to win by running the ball and targeting T.J Hockenson over the middle.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Alvin Kamara
Kamara may be in line for another 10+ catch effort.
Cleveland Browns vs Dallas Cowboys
Once again expect the Cowboys to take a game down to the wire.
What To Expect From Cleveland
Run, run, run the ball.
What To Expect From Dallas
In order to overcome the pass rushers of the Browns, Dallas should use a lot of play action and quick reads.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Ezekiel Elliott
If Elliott eats, the Cowboys will win.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Cincinnati Bengals (3CoSports Game of the Week)
Minshew vs. Burrow in what should be an entertaining catfight.
What To Expect From Jacksonville
The Bengals defense is one of the worst in the league against the run, so don’t be surprised if the Jags feed James Robinson the rock.
What To Expect From Cincinnati
Joe Mixon finally faces an easy matchup, so for the Bengals’ sake let’s hope he puts it together.
Fantasy Player of the Game: James Robinson
Robinson has a chance to put up huge numbers in this matchup.
Indianapolis Colts vs Chicago Bears
What To Expect From Indianapolis
Some Jonathan Taylor action.
What To Expect From Chicago
Some Allen Robinson and David Montgomery action.
Fantasy Player of the Game: David Montgomery
With no Tarik Cohen, Montgomery has a chance to cement himself as a three-down back for the Bears.
Arizona Cardinals vs Carolina Panthers
The Cardinals offense could have a field day against a Panthers defense that is exploitable in every area.
What To Expect From Arizona
Kyler Murray and Kenyan Drake could absolutely torture this defense with their legs.
What To Expect From Carolina
Teddy Two Gloves will need to throw the ball a lot in this one.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Kenyan Drake
This could be a huge week for Drake, based on what we’ve seen from Carolina’s run defense thus far.
New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Rams
Leave a little bit of room in that Jets grave for the Giants, I think we can fit both in there after this week.
What To Expect From New York
Daniel Jones is going to be eaten alive by Aaron Donald.
What To Expect From Los Angeles
Fantasy Player of the Game: Cooper Kupp
Kupp is going to shine against this shotty secondary.
Buffalo Bills vs Las Vegas Raiders
A hard-hitting battle between two playoff-caliber teams.
What To Expect From Buffalo
The Raiders defense controlled Cam Newton last week and could do the same to Josh Allen. Expect to see a lot of Devin Singletary and Zack Moss action.
What To Expect From Las Vegas
Josh Jacobs and Hunter Renfrow are the only guys I feel confident in this week.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Hunter Renfrow
Renfrow is in line for a huge target share this week.
New England Patriots vs Kansas City Chiefs (WAS 3CoSports Game of the Week)
Newton vs. Mahomes in what should be a barn burner.
What To Expect From New England
Just kidding… who knows? But the only Patriot you should start is Julian Edelman,..
What To Expect From Kansas City
Mahomes and his friends performing miracles on the pitch.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Travis Kelce
Of all the Chiefs’ playmakers, Kelce has the best matchup.
Philadelphia Eagles vs San Francisco 49ers
Two banged-up ball clubs lock horns in a lackluster SNF matchup.
What To Expect From Philadelphia
Outside of Zach Ertz, Greg Ward, and Miles Sanders it’s hard to find a viable playmaker for this team.
What To Expect From San Francisco
With George Kittle back, expect big things from Nick Mullens.
Fantasy Player of the Game: Miles Sanders
Sanders will need to explode if the Eagles hope to avoid the 0-4 hole.
