article imageNFL Fantasy Football: Week 3 quarterback rankings

By Larry Seely     Sep 21, 2015 in Sports
This past weekend wasn't good for owners with Tony Romo, Drew Brees, or Jay Cutler as all three quarterbacks are either out of action for the next few weeks or injured enough to warrant a change behind center.
Every NFL team gets hit with injuries, but just like fantasy football, those teams that have good depth are more likely to ride out the storm and keep their season alive. This is a look at the top signal callers in week 3 and why they should be productive.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots just scorched a tough Buffalo defense for 466 yards and three touchdowns through the air. This week the defending Super Bowl champs face Jacksonville and while the Jags have played well this season, its hard not to believe Brady won't have another 300+ yard passing game and at least two touchdown passes.
Peyton Manning isn't off to a great start, but his 2-0 Broncos are due for a big game offensively. Week 3 has Denver at Detroit and the Lions defense is yielding nearly 270 passing yards per game. With Manning looking a bit better last week against Kansas City, expect a big game from the All Pro and for those owners lucky enough to have the veteran, this isn't the week to think about a change.
For those owners looking for a 'sleeper' in week 3, Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins could have a breakout start. The Redskins have used the run well in the early part of the year, but they face a poor NY Giants secondary and with just three days to prepare, expect Washington to use the passing game early and often and that could mean a good point total for NFL fantasy football owners.
It's hard to figure how the backups for the teams mentioned above will play this week, but for owners looking for help off the waiver wire, Brandon Weeden of Dallas figures to be the best bet. With an above average offensive line and some good weapons on the outside, he should produce enough points to warrant his selection.
