After the NFL’s passing outburst over the first two weeks of the season, defenses somewhat restored order.
It appeared Week 3 would mark the first time this season that no quarterback hit the 400-yard barrier. Yet, Ben Roethlisberger decided to mess up that statistical note by throwing for over 400 yards against the Bears on Sunday night.
Let’s take a look at five fantasy heroes and villains from Week 3 action.
|Drew Brees, QB, Saints||342 yards, 3 TDs, 1 TDR||When Brees is scoring on foot, it’s a good day.|
|Geno Smith, QB, Jets||331 yards, 2 TDs||The best performance of Smith’s young career.|
|DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys||175 yards rushing, TD||Look ma, Dallas can run!|
|Bilal Powell, RB, Jets||149 yards rushing||Only thing missing was a score.|
|Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers||196 yards receiving, 2 TDs||Finally, something works out for Pittsburgh.|
|Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers||184 yards, TD||The most noticeable part of his performance was the game-ending kick ball.|
|Eli Manning, QB, Giants||119 yards, INT||Brutal.|
|Arian Foster, RB, Texans||54 yards rushing||Yup, he’s toast.|
|CJ Spiller, RB, Bills||9 yards||A slow day on the ground was punctuated by a knee injury.|
|Roddy White, WR, Falcons||16 yards||Just two catches for White on Sunday in Miami.|
Week 3 concludes with a Monday night AFC West battle between Denver and Oakland.
