12 Fantasy Quarterbacks; See Who Should Start or Sit Week 3
What to do with some of those quarterbacks who aren’t exactly solid starts each week? Find out what might be in store for these 12 fantasy quarterbacks in Week 3. And, yes New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady is a questionable quarterback still after two weeks.
Quarterbacks to Start
1. Tom Brady has been disappointing and dismal over this first two weeks. Week 3 has him playing at home against a lowly 0-2 Oakland Raiders. Brady should light it up this week.
2. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks host the Denver Broncos who’ve allowed the fifth most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Wilson may have to pass more to up with an on-fire Denver offense, which means more fantasy points. The Seahawks surely want another embarrassing loss like last week.
3. Cam Newton at home against Pittsburgh, yes please. The Steelers couldn’t stop the Ravens if they were paid to last week. Cam should reward generously on his home ground. The Steelers defense has allowed a 928 total yards over two games.
4. Kirk Cousins plays against the Eagles who allowed five passing touchdowns squeak past them in two games. If DeSean Jackson plays, Cousins looks even better.
5. Jay Cutler defied major odds and threw four touchdowns on the road against the 49ers. If he didn’t cave to that pressure, he should have a huge night against the NY Jets.

6. Philip Rivers went to town on the Seahawks’ last week, so there’s no reason to doubt that he’ll reward a generous dose of fantasy points against Buffalo in Week 3.
7. Ryan Tannehill should be poised for a bid day against the Chiefs who have allowed the fifth most fantasy points to quarterbacks, along with 5 passing touchdowns in two weeks. Plus, finally, Tannehill and Mike Wallace are connecting.
8. Andy Dalton beware against the Titans who rank third-best against quarterbacks. Dalton, however is holding his own and currently ranks eighth which is well ahead of the likes of Tom Brady, Colin Kaepernick and Nick Foles. So if he’s your best option, he should be a suitable start.
Quarterbacks to Sit:
9. Ben Roethlisberger was horrible on the road against Baltimore, now he faces the Carolina Panthers on the road once again. Leave him benched against the Panthers who rank seventh-best in shutting down quarterbacks.

10. Colin Kaepernick was a mess by the end of the game last week against Chicago, chucking three interceptions to the wind. He now travels to play the Arizona Cardinals and may be without his top weapon Vernon Davis in Week 3. Try a safer option.
11. Eli Manning – things really aren’t going your way if Manning is the your only starting option.
12. Tony Romo is just too hard to trust unless he’s your best or only option. Averaging just 253 passing yards, and one touchdown per game and those three memorable picks in Week 1 compels me to list Romo as a sit in Week 3 in St. Louis.
