Fantasy Football Rankings Week 3

Week 3 kicks off tonight as the Cleveland Browns will host divisional rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football, exclusively on Amazon Prime. We will bring you new rankings based on matchups and injuries each week.

Let’s start with Week 3 Quarterback rankings:

Josh Allen at Miami Dolphins
Lamar Jackson at New England Patriots
Patrick Mahomes at Indianapolis Colts
Justin Herbert vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jalen Hurts at Washington Commanders
Kyler Murray vs. Los Angeles Rams
Joe Burrow at New York Jets
Kirk Cousins vs. Detroit Lions
Carson Wentz vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Matthew Stafford at Arizona Cardinals

Josh Allen will continue to deliver in Week 3 against the Dolphins. Lamar Jackson sees a bump from last week due to his dominating performance against the Patriots. Justin Herbert (rib cartilage) is questionable against the Jaguars; if he plays, he will be a top-five quarterback in Week 3. Kirk Cousins has a favorable matchup against the Lions, and he will be a top-10 quarterback. Carson Wentz has been on a tear to start the season, and he will look to continue that streak. Lions quarterback Jared Goff and Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa could be streaming options in Week 3.

Week 3 Running Back rankings:

Jonathan Taylor vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Austin Ekeler vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Christian McCaffrey vs. New Orleans Saints
Saquon Barkley vs. Dallas Cowboys
Dalvin Cook vs. Detroit Lions
Joe Mixon at New York Jets
D’Andre Swift at Minnesota Vikings
Nick Chubb vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Derrick Henry vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Leonard Fournette vs. Green Bay Packers

Jonathan Taylor should bounce back against the Chiefs after a forgettable performance against the Jaguars. Ekeler’s production could see an uptick if Herbert is ruled out because backup quarterback Chase Daniel will rely on Ekeler, but either way, he will be a top-three running back.

Week 3 Wide Receiver rankings:

Cooper Kupp at Arizona Cardinals
Justin Jefferson vs. Detroit Lions
Davante Adams at Tennessee Titans
Stefon Diggs at Miami Dolphins
Tyreek Hill vs. Buffalo Bills
Amon-Ra St. Brown at Minnesota Vikings
Ja’Maar Chase at New York Jets
Keenan Allen vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Deebo Samuel at Denver Broncos
A.J. Brown at Washington Commanders

Amon-Ra St. Brown had a big game in Week 2; he will likely continue that success in Week 3 against the Vikings. Keenan Allen is questionable, but he is trending in the right direction. If he’s healthy, he will be a top-10 wide receiver in Week 3; if he is ruled out, Mike Williams will have to step up, similarly to last week.

Week 3 Tight End rankings:

Travis Kelce at Indianapolis Colts
Mark Andrews at New England Patriots
Darren Waller at Tennessee Titans
George Kittle at Denver Broncos
Gerald Everett vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Pat Freiermuth at Cleveland Browns
Dallas Goedert at Washington Commanders
Kyle Pitts at Seattle Seahawks
T.J. Hockenson at Minnesota Vikings
Logan Thomas vs. Philadelphia Eagles

George Kittle is questionable for Week 3, but with Jimmy Garoppolo at the helm, he will perform at a higher level than with Trey Lance as the quarterback if the tight end plays against the Broncos. Freiermuth, Everett, and Thomas have moved their way up to the five, six, and ten spots, as they have been producing at a high level this season. Currently, Everett is ranked fourth, Freiermuth is ranked sixth, and Thomas is ranked ninth in their position.

Week 3 Defense and Special Teams rankings:

Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants
Los Angeles Chargers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints
Houston Texans at Chicago Bears
Cincinnati Bengals at New York Jets
Chicago Bears vs. Houston Texans
New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers

Week 3 Kicker rankings:

Justin Tucker at New England Patriots
Greg Joseph vs. Detroit Lions
Matt Gay at Arizona Cardinals
Brandon McManus vs. San Francisco 49ers
Evan McPherson at New York Jets
Daniel Carlson at Tennessee Titans
Nick Folk vs. Baltimore Ravens
Tyler Bass at Miami Dolphins
Matt Prater vs. Los Angeles Rams
Dustin Hopkins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Good luck in Week 3!
