What You Need to Know From Week 3

A run down of the most important things to know from each game in Week 3


1. James Robinson was the only good thing in the Jaguars offense and he was very good indeed, putting up a 30+ PPR point game in a blowout loss, the mark of a true fantasy stud. He wasn’t known as a pass catcher at Illinois State and outproduced his entire senior season in receiving yards in one game. If you are stacked at running back and don’t need Robinson, see if you can deal him for a big upgrade at your weakest position.

2. The Dolphins were impressed enough with Myles Gaskin in the first two games to make him the starter and clear lead back. He wasn’t able to find a lot of creases against the underrated Jags run defense and Jordan Howard will still get goal line looks over him, but his passcatching ability will keep him in RB2 mix until this situation changes.

3. Gardner Minshew’s life got a lot harder against a mediocre defense when he had to play without DJ Chark. Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault Jr underwhelmed despite the promise of a narrowed target tree. If Chark can’t return for Week 4 at Cincinnati, we’ll avoid this passing game.

4. Ryan Fitzpatrick was in top form for the second straight week and is back in our streaming candidates with Seattle up this week. Fitzpatrick’s willingness to run the ball and Jordan Howard’s middling goal line prowess only ups his ceiling.

5. Mike Gesicki and Preston Williams bailed out anyone who played them with short scores. Don’t hold their low output against them when setting lineups as they head into what should be the highest scoring game of the week against Seattle.
