If your season long fantasy football team is anything like mine then you may already be looking forward to next season. Fortunately for us weekly fantasy football leagues are available on a number of platforms including Fanduel; my personal favorite. With that being said, he is one of my GPP lineups for the third week of the season.
Fanduel NFL Lineup Week 3 – 2015
QB – Ben Roethlisberger – $8,500 vs STL
While it is certainly true that many people will grab Le’Veon Bell in his 2015 debut, I am going to take a more, wait-and-see, approach. DeAngelo Williams looked amazing in his first two games so it would not surprise me to see an almost even split against a tough Rams defense. As such, I am hoping this turns into a shootout with Big Ben slinging the rock deep and often.
RB – Jamaal Charles – $8,700 vs GB
I honestly do not believe Jamaal will have a big day on the ground against the Packers. I do, however, think he will play a huge part in the passing attack. 10 catches for 75 yards and a TD is not out of the question.
RB – T.J. Yelton – $6,600 vs NE
Sure, the Pats are winning but their defense is still struggling somewhat. I expect Yelton to gain around 75 yards on the ground and catch 5 to 7 balls out of the backfield.
WR – Brandon Marshall – $7,400 vs Phi
Wow, when Decker got hurt Marshall really stepped up his game. Of course, seeing as how he went to UCF, this is more of a homer pick than anything.
WR – Doug Baldwin – $6,000 vs Chi
Grabbing 7 passes in each of his last two games certainly does not hurt his fantasy appeal much. Against the pathetic Bears I would expect more of the same. Hopefully, he will sprinkle in a TD or two as well.
WR – Larry Fitzgerald – $6,700 vs SF
ALL ABOARD………….let’s ride the Fitzgerald bus as long as we can.
TE – Travis Kelce – $6,400 vs GB
Since I expect this to be a close, but high scoring, game, Kelce should return to his week 1 numbers
K – Mason Crosby – $5,000 vs KC
Have to start a kicker right? Your guess is as good as mine!
D – Arizona Cardinals – $4,700 vs SF
The 49ers are terrible….enough said.
So what do you think? Post your NFL Fanduel lineup for the third week of the 2015 season and let’s see who comes out on top!
