Week 3: at Kansas City Chiefs
All TE vs KC
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Ryan Fitzpatrick came out of his Week One stupor and looked like the fantasy-favorite from 2015 during Week Two, with 24/34 for 374 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, and just one sack taken for -4 yards, at Buffalo last weekend. Both Brandon Marshall (nine targets for 6/106/0 receiving) and Eric Decker (eight for 6/126/1) went over 100 yards receiving on the day, and Quincy Enunwa almost got there with six targets for 6/92/0. The only fly in this ointment entering Week Three is that Marshall was banged up during the game, and though he eventually returned to action, there is concern over his knee, with some reports indicating a sprained MCL, but that is a diagnosis that head coach Todd Bowles disputed this week. Marshall himself had this to say 'The school I come from is, don't rule me out until Sunday. I need all the way up until pregame warmup to see if I'm good to go. Right now, I feel stable. I feel good. And I'm going to work my tail off to get out there and be out there with the guys.' Fantasy owners will want to monitor Marshall's practice status late in the week.
The Chiefs' pass D intercepted Brock Osweiler twice last weekend while allowing one TD pass (19/33 for 254 net passing yards, with two sacks generated for -14 yards). So far this season K.C. averages 243.5 net passing yards allowed per game (16th in the NFL) with two TDs given out vs. two interceptions and three sacks generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, Kansas City has averaged 16.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (ninth-least in the NFL); and 22.5 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (16th); with 3.1 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (sixth-least). They are a solid but not fearsome pass defense entering Week Three.
This looks like a neutral matchup, with K.C.'s vociferous 12th-man at Arrowhead Stadium helping to boost the so-so pass defense.
