A New Number One

Keenan AllenKeenan Allen is set up nicely for what might be the biggest game of his season if it is even possible to top his last week’s performance. He is coming off a huge week in a losing effort against the Texans where he hauled in 13 receptions for 183 yards plus two touchdowns. This week the Chargers travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins. The Dolphins have allowed ten passing touchdowns so far this year, which is the most in the NFL, as well as the 5th most passing yards in the league. As Philip Rivers’s top receiving option, especially with Hunter Henry still out with injury, this sets up perfectly for another big game. The momentum from his last game along with the frustration of a loss should carry over into a big Week 4 for Keenan Allen.

Week 3 Surprises

Sterling ShepardSterling Shepard stepped up in a big way in the Giants game against the Buccaneers in their comeback win. Daniel Jones made his first start for the Giants which arose questions about how Shepard’s volume would be affected, Jones fit in perfectly and targetted Shepard nine times. Shepard caught seven of them for 100 yards and one touchdown. A Week 4 matchup against the Redskins should mean a similar (if not more) workload, especially with Saquon Barkley out for the next couple of weeks. Another surprise came from Marvin Jones. Jones has been ranked throughout the season in the middle of the pack, but in a game where Kenny Golladay didn’t produce, Jones stepped up. He caught six passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in a surprise victory over the Eagles. The Chiefs will again be a tough matchup for the Lions, but Jones is looking more and more like a valuable part of a growing Lions’ offense.

Injuries To Watch

TY HiltonThere are two notable injuries that you should be keeping up to date with if you have either of these players. The first is T.Y. Hilton. Hilton has been continuously getting over a hamstring injury throughout the season. Late in the first half, Hilton left for the locker room early after scoring a touchdown in which it was reported that he reaggravated his hamstring injury. His status for next week is still up in the air, so all Hilton owners should pay close attention to his injury news. Lastly, there is Julian Edelman. Edelman had a touchdown earlier in the game when he left with a rib injury. Sources have come out that this is not a serious injury, and he will likely be ready to play next week, but it is still something to look out for.

Taken A Fall

Michael ThomasYou may notice some former stars taking serious drops in the ranking. One major one is Michael Thomas. As long as Drew Brees stays out with his broken thumb, his volume will continue to take a hit. It is much easier for quarterbacks to hit the running back, so Alvin Kamara will significantly take away most of his targets until either Teddy Bridgewater builds up confidence or until Brees’s return. JuJu Smith-Schuster is in the same boat as Thomas, but for the long-term. With Roethlisberger out, JuJu has to get on track with Mason Rudolph. Last week, they hooked up on a long 76-yard touchdown pass, but outside of that, he had just 2 receptions for 5 yards. 3 receptions all game is not enough for a player like JuJu, but that has resulted in a significant drop in the rankings from the preseason.

  
I started playing fantasy football in 2010 at 12 years old where I subbed in for an owner who was having a baby. That year I won the championship in a 16-team league, carried by Arian Foster and Michael Vick. I have yet to bring a trophy home since then, but my love for fantasy football has grown, delving more and more in the statistics and finding ways to improve my drafting ability.
