Fantasy Football Week 3: Start’em / Sit’em

5 of 7

Drew Brees, @CAR (60%, 19) – He’s questionable to even play on Sunday and rumors are swirling that Brees’ injury goes back to last season and could be worse than what the Saints are reporting. Even if Brees plays this week, he has a tough matchup in Carolina and has struggled without his safety-valve Jimmy Graham this season.

Matt Stafford, DEN (28%, 18) – Another QB who is banged up, though Stafford is likely to play Sunday. He gets to play at home, but the Broncos have given up the fewest fantasy points to QBs so far this year. Stafford just hasn’t played well enough the last two weeks for me to trust him against a good pass D.

Colin Kaepernick, @AZ (18%, 19) -I’ll admit that I was wrong about Kaepernick last week, but he got the majority of his fantasy points in garbage time after the Niners fell behind early. Playing on the road against an aggressive defense isn’t going to go as well for Kaepernick.
