Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em: Week 3 QBs

Start: Derek Carr vs. Titans

Sitting at QB12 through the first two games of the new season, Derek Carr has put up 16.8 and 19.0 fantasy points since the offseason addition of Davante Adams. This week, he has a matchup against the Tennessee Titans who just gave up 317 yards and four touchdowns to Josh Allen on Monday night. They now have to face the Raiders on a short week. Expect the best Derek Carr fantasy football performance of the season so far. That’s why he kicks off this fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em article.

Start: Carson Wentz vs. Eagles

Revenge is a dish best served hot, and Carson Wentz is most certainly that. He gets ready to face the Eagles for the first time since he was traded away. The QB4 through the first two games, Wentz sits just behind Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson, averaging 29.3 fantasy points per game (fppg). The Philadelphia Eagles defense has played well to this point, giving up 14.2 fppg to opposing QBs and intercepting Kirk Cousins three times on Monday night. Still, Wentz still makes for a solid play.

In both games this season, he has passed for over 300 yards and at least three touchdowns. Carson Wentz fantasy football owners should fire him up for this revenge game.

Sit: Aaron Rodgers vs. Buccaneers

After an abysmal start, with 4.7 fantasy points in Week 1 of the season, Aaron Rodgers performed better in Week 2, putting up 16.4 against the Chicago Bear. The Packers, who led at halftime, were content relying on their running game in the second half. This week, Rodgers will face his toughest matchup yet. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have held both Dak Prescott and Jameis Winston to a grand total of 18.6 fantasy points, an average of 9.3 fppg. If you have a better option this week, this fantasy football start ’em sit ’em article suggest Rodgers is left on your bench.

Sit: Tom Brady vs. Packers

Rarely will you find a fantasy advice article advising you to bench the reigning MVP above and the GOAT here, but neither projects as a QB1 this week. Tom Brady has only put up 11.4 and 9.4 fantasy points in the first two games of the season. Now, without Mike Evans due to a suspension, his receiving corps is possibly down to Russell Gage, Breshad Perriman and Cole Beasley. Yes, that Cole Beasley. Look for the Tom Brady fantasy football production to be muted for at least one more week against a solid Packers secondary.
