Two weeks down, and now it's time for more fantasy football advice. For the second straight week, Brett and I both didn't finish in the money. It goes to show how tough DFS can be. Brett's lineup reached 104.46 points, and my lineup collected 114 points. On to week three:
|Week 3 Lineups|
|QB||Russell Wilson||$8,400||Marcus Mariota||$7,300|
|RB 1||Marshawn Lynch||$8,700||Jamaal Charles||$8,700|
|RB 2||Latavius Murray||$7,000||Isaiah Crowell||$6,600|
|WR 1||T. Y. Hilton||$7,600||Deandre Hopkins||$7,800|
|WR 2||Steve Johnson||$5,900||T. Y. Hilton||$7,600|
|WR 3||Michael Crabtree||$6,000||Allen Robinson||$6,600|
|TE||Jermaine Gresham||$6,300||Crockett Gillmore||$5,400|
|K||Randy Bullock||$4,800||Randy Bullock||$4,800|
|DEF||Seahawks D/ST||$5,300||Texans D/ST||$5,000|
I'm not buying in on Mariota, but he has six touchdowns in two games. I don't think the Colts defense finds the magic formula in Week Three to stop him.
Jamaal Charles scorched the Broncos for 125 yards and a score, and now he faces a Packers defense that has given up 154 rushing yards per game thus far in 2015. The goal will be to keep the Packers offense off the field, and Charles will go a long way in doing that. Oakland has given up 118 yards per game on the ground and three scores...do work, Isaiah Crowell.
I'm riding the Texans this week. If they fail, at least I know the season is over at this point. DeAndre Hopkins faces a defense with D.J. Swearinger on the back end. I like those odds. If Hopkins can't go, I will switch to A.J. Green. The Colts' offense has to wake up a some point. Why not Week Three for T.Y. Hilton?
I think the Texans are going to kill the Bucs, so I'm betting Bullock and the defense will get plenty of chances to score.
