If you are like me, you are sitting here on a Monday and sifting through all your lineups from the weekend and seeing how well your Fantasy Football team did. Well each week I bring you the guys that helped you win that game. I bring you the Sports Script week 3 Fantasy Football Studs.
(Check out my fellow writer Matt Bell’s Fantasy Football DuDs here: http://wp.me/p2MUTr-mt)
Week 3 Fantasy Football Studs
Drew Brees – 342 yards and 4 total TDs
Drew Brees showed why he was the 1st QB off the board in most drafts this week throwing for 342 yards and 4 total touchdowns (Yes he even got a rushing TD). He just tore a pretty darn good Cardinals defense to shreds this week.
Demarco Murray – 175 yards rushing and a TD
Murray just showed out against the Rams. He has the Rams number; in 2011 he rushed for a career high 253 yards against them. Fantasy owners everywhere wish that he would face the Rams every week.
Jason Snelling – 111 total yards and a TD
Snelling proved to be a worth substitute for Steven Jackson this week, turning his 15 touches into 111 yards and a score. If you started him this week you got a very nice surprise from him. He may be worth a look if he is on the waiver wire while Jackson is out.
Antonio Brown – 9 catches 196 yards and 2 TDs
Well Brown came out and publicly blasted the amount of targets and touches he was receiving. Well unlike Kenny Britt, Brown went out this week and showed out against a pretty good Bears defense. We can only hope going forward that Brown will continue to be a Fantasy stud.
Josh Gordon – 10 catches 146 yards and a TD
Gordon back from suspension decided to show out in his 1st game back. There was concern that Hoyer wouldn’t be able to get him the ball, well folks I don’t think there should be any worries going forward. If you stashed him in your league, job well done.
Jimmy Graham – 9 catches 134 yards and 2 TDs
Is this guy good or what? Jesus, he is a super-stud. I am not big on drafting tight ends early but this guy is making me reconsider my feelings on that.
Honorable Mentions – Jordan Cameron – 6 catches 66 yards & 3 TDs & Cam Newton – 268 yards & 3 total TDs
On Twitter @imjoshman sent us in Stephen Hill – 3 catches 108 yards and a TD. – Great eye and great start.
