Week 3's Best

QB:
1. Philip Rivers- After seeing the Chiefs' defense over the last two weeks(which also doesn't have safety Eric Berry anymore), it's hard for me to pick anybody else here.
2. Tom Brady- 940 passing yards and seven touchdowns in the first two games. Not bad.
3. Drew Brees- I think Houston's secondary is much improved, but they're not good enough to keep Brees from going off.
4. Michael Vick- He should be to go at 100%, and has a great matchup against the Giants.
5. Aaron Rodgers- Rodgers has struggled against the Bears over his career, but the Bears could be without safeties Chris Harris and Major Wright.

RB:
1. Adrian Peterson- With how Donovan McNabb's looked so far, the Vikings are probably going to need AP to go off to beat the Lions.
2. Ray Rice- Off to a terrific start and now gets the Rams who have the league's worst-ranked run defense so far.
3. Chris Johnson- This is the game he finally gets it going.
4. Rashard Mendenhall-Pittsburgh should blow out the Colts. Mendenhall is going to get a lot of carries and goal line chances.
5. Matt Forte- Mike Martz vows to get the running game going this week. That means a heavy dose of Forte.

WR:
1. Andre Johnson-14 catches, 188 yards, two touchdowns so far, and he'll have a huge day again in a shootout vs. the Saints.
2. Calvin Johnson- FOUR touchdowns already.
3. Vincent Jackson-If Rivers is going to blow up, so is his top receiver.
4. Larry Fitzgerald- Great matchup against a crappy secondary.
5. Mike Wallace- Steelers' wide receiver has 16 catches for 233 yards.

TE:
1. Antonio Gates- He's Questionable, so obviously pay attention to his status leading up to game time.
2. Jason Witten- Six+ catches for 100+ yards in each thus far.
3. Rob Gronkowski- A red zone machine, just like last year, and Aaron Hernandez is out.
4. Jermichael Finley- Tough matchup against the Bears, but he may be able to make some big plays downfield against a beaten up safety group.
5. Jimmy Graham- Red zone guy in a shootout.

D/ST:
1. Pittsburgh Steelers- Awesome matchup against the Colts.
2. San Diego Chargers- Awesome matchup against the Chiefs.
3. Green Bay Packers- Dom Capers is going to blitz the hell out of Jay Cutler after what the Saints did to the Bears last week.
4. Dallas Cowboys- I'm feeling a "Bad Rex" game, with DeMarcus Ware playing a big part in making that happen.
5. Baltimore Ravens- Face a Rams offense that looked like shit against the Giants.

Sleepers

QB:
Kevin Kolb- Really like this matchup for him against the Seahawks.

Josh Freeman-Finally will get over 15 fantasy points(standard leagues).

RB:
Daniel Thomas- The rookie had 18 carries last week for 107 yards. I like him to get his first touchdown this week.

Dexter McCluster- With Jamaal Charles out for the season, I think McCluster is going to become a big part of their offense. He's not going to be as good of an in-between-the-tackles runner as Charles, but he offers the same big play ability. He's especially going to be valuable in PPR leagues.

WR:
A.J. Green- Absolutely the real deal. Usually you don't see rookie receivers having big years, but I think we will with him, especially because the Bengals are going to be playing from behind a lot and will need to air it out.

Nate Washington- The Titans' receiver has at least six catches in each game so far.

TE:
Marcedes Lewis- I expect Blaine Gabbert to look for Lewis as a security blanket in his first NFL start.

Evan Moore- Touchdowns in both games. Definitely a name to keep an eye on in deep leagues.

D/ST:
Arizona Cardinals- Any defense is a good start against the Seahawks.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Can the Vikings pass the ball? Until they show they can, I'm liking most any defense against them.

Tennessee Titans- Face a Broncos offense at home that looks pretty questionable at best so far, especially on the ground.

Shit

QB:
Rex Grossman- Bad Rex.

Sam Bradford- Terrible matchup against the Ravens.

RB:
James Starks- The Packers' success this week should come through the air.

Shonn Greene- He looks like complete shit.

WR:
Denarius Moore- I'm even starting him in a league and think he could do alright, but don't expect anywhere near the 146 yards receiving that he had last week. Revis and company won't let that happen. He's a must-grab off the waiver wire though. There will be some big games for the rookie.

Brandon Lloyd- The Titans have good defensive backs, and Lloyd's coming off a groin injury. Additionally, Eric Decker emerged as a great target for Orton last week.

TE:
Tony Gonzalez- He's a future Hall of Famer, but don't expect anymore performances like the OUTSTANDING one he had last week.

Fred Davis: Very impressive early start, but Rex should struggle.

D/ST:
Chicago Bears- Not a good matchup against the Packers, even though they've handled the Packers and Rodgers well in recent years. As a Bears fan, I sure hope I'm wrong.

Houston Texans: #1 ranked defense in the NFL, but that won't last through the weekend.
