5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 3

5 Up

#1 C.J. Anderson (RB) Denver Broncos

So much for a running back by committee in Denver. The first two games of the season has seen Anderson get 20 carries & 25 carries respectively. He has 199 yards and a touchdown in 2 games. That is a ton of touches, workhorse level, for Anderson. If he continues to get those kind of consistent touches, that is worthy of your attention.

#2 Jack Doyle (TE) Indianapolis Colts

He seems to have a connection with Jacoby Brissett. He looked for Doyle early and often against the Cardinals. Luck is not going to return for Week 3 against Cleveland so Brissett will get another start. He isn’t the most athletic tight end that the league has to offer, but he brings sure hands and solid route running. Look for that to continue against an iffy defense in Cleveland.

#3 Jermaine Kearse (WR) New York Jets

I was curious to see if Week 1 was just a fluke when he racked up double digit fantasy points. Week 2 came with two touchdowns from Kearse. As long as McCown is at quarterback for the Jets, he is a legitimate option to have in your flex position. Who else is reliable and catching passes for the Jets? They are going to be trailing a lot this season.

#4 Trevor Siemian (QB) Denver Broncos

He has scored 20+ points in the first two weeks of the season. He has great command of the offense and looks to be a decent fantasy player for this season. He has plenty of offensive talent around him so he should be someone you should look at for a pick-up if your starting quarterback is struggling.

#5 Javorius Allen (RB) Baltimore Ravens

When Danny Woodhead went down, I wasn’t sure which Raven’s running back would have their intake picked up. It seems like Allen is going to be the back that will get his carries, and will also be the pass-catcher out of the backfield. He seems to be a trustworthy target for Flacco. Especially in a PPR league where he can give you plenty of opportunities to get solid value from him.
