Fantasy football sit, start, and sleepers: Divisional picks for 2017 Week 3
Only one Top-10 quarterback in the division, so Ben Roethlisberger is your first choice when looking here for fantasy football passers.
Baltimore plays the early, early, game on Sunday against the Jaguars. Pittsburgh is in Chicago, and Cleveland is in the battle for the top pick against the Colts.
SIT – Quarterback, Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens
Against a decent defense, Flacco threw for under 150-yards, one score, and one interception.
When he faced a bad one, he went for 217, two scores, and another interception.
Moral of the story is, this quarterback does ok against bad defenses and less-than-stellar against good ones.
He plays a good one this week.
START – Running back, Le’Veon Bell – Pittsburgh Steelers
I think this is the week Bell breaks free.
Chicago’s defense has looked better against the run than they have the pass, but they haven’t looked all that good at all, really.
SLEEPER – Quarterback, Deshone Kizer – Cleveland Browns
I blame the migraine for Kizer’s struggles in Baltimore, more than anything. He did pretty well against the Steelers in Week 1.
We’re going to see who the real Browns quarterback is here, and the Colts defense is bad enough to make him look really good.
Must Read: Key Plays in Week 2
This division still runs through Green Bay, but Detroit is the team off to a hot start. How many fantasy football relevant targets are there here?
Chicago is playing host to the Steelers in what could be Mike Glennon’s last game as a starter. Minnesota is hosting the Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon as well, and Detroit brings in the Falcons.
In the late afternoon on Sunday, the Bengals head to Lambeau field to match-up against Green Bay.
SIT – Running Back, Dalvin Cook – Minnesota Vikings
Cook had a big Week 1, and not so big Week 2.
The Buccaneers kept Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen in check pretty well, and they should be able to do the same here.
Bucs fans who didn’t want Cook *cough* Gator Fans *cough*, will get the first laugh here.
START – Running Back, Ty Montgomery – Green Bay Packers
Montgomery is the kind of running back who can punish a defense in a heartbeat.
He’s good for close to 100-yards offense and at least one score just about every week.
Against an undisciplined Bengals defense, he might be in for even more.
SLEEPER – Running back, Ameer Abdullah – Detroit Lions
Abdullah had a much better Week 2 than he did Week 1.
He looked like the running back most hoped he’d be coming into this season against the Giants.
Heading into a match-up against the Falcons, he may be in for another good showing.
The Falcons defense is improved, but still not great. If he can find some gaps to run through, he could turn them into big plays.
