JetNation Week 3 Fantasy Rankings


Week 2 saw many changes at the quarterback position, including two from the 2004 Draft, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger. Although their absences don’t entirely shake up the rankings, it opens the door for newer, younger faces to emerge as the games top fantasy quarterbacks. With only a two game sample size, offenses are starting to take shape and defenses are starting to learn their tendencies. This makes for more intriguing matchups across the board, and new players enter the fantasy picture. All rankings are made for standard, non-PPR formats.

Sleeper Pick of the Week

Miles Boykin @ Chiefs

In a game that looks to have the highest score of the week, there will be plenty of players that will get a chance to have fantasy relevance. The Ravens offense is facing it’s toughest test of the season, but the Chiefs secondary is vulnerable to surrendering big fantasy games to receivers. They are currently ranked 20th in Pass YPG allowed, so Lamar should be able to air it out and keep scoring with the Chiefs explosive offense. This means that the 6’4” rookie from Notre Dame could be primed for a big day. He has been relatively quiet in his first two career games, but he was already able to find the end zone. As Boykin’s chemistry grows with Jackson, his production in this new look offense will continue to grow as well. Sunday could be the breakout game he needed.
