FanDuel Week 3 Cash Game Breakdown
A plethora of injuries in Week 2 give us some options to work with in Week 3. FanDuel has changed its main slate to Sunday only, but I like the Sunday-Monday slate this week because it has two of the week's best QB plays. As always, be sure to keep the FanDuel Cash Game Guidelines handy as you create lineups.

QB Matt Ryan $8,500 @ NO
I mentioned in this week’s Raybon’s Review that last week became just the seventh instance since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger that a QB threw for at least 368 yards with zero TDs. The Saints got shredded last week to the tune of 32-41 passing, and lost another cornerback to injury (P.J. Williams). Seemingly showcasing a better grasp of Kyle Shanahan’s offense than he did in 2015, Ryan has thrown for at least 334 yards and 2 TDs in both games so far this season. He has averages of 350 passing yards and 2 TDs in his last four meetings with the Saints. Despite being a road underdog, the Falcons’ implied total is 25.5, one of the highest on the slate.
