TL;DR Season-Long Week 3

  • With 6-113-1 against the Chiefs in Week 2, Marquise Brown now has 87+ yards and/or a touchdown in 10 straight games dating back to last season. (Full Article)
  • Brandin Cooks currently ranks second in the league in target share and first in air yards share, having commanded 35% of the Texans’ passes and 55% of their air yards. He ranks second in the league in total receptions. (Full Article)
  • Teddy Bridgewater is quietly the fantasy QB10 after two contests, with over 20 fantasy points in each game. His upcoming schedule is fairly decent, too. After Week 3, he faces defenses who rank 28th, 19th and 13th in fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs so far in 2021. (Full Article)
  • Chase Edmonds has out-snapped James Conner 61%-to-45% and out-produced him in terms of total yards, 181-to-79 while receiving 100% of the pass-catching work out of the backfield. (Full Article)

TL;DR DFS Week 3

  • In Week 1, Saquon Barkley played on just 29 snaps. In Week 2, he was on the field for 58-of-69 snaps and saw a season-high in touches (15). The snaps are encouraging, and while the touches still aren't where we want them to be for an RB of Barkley's caliber and fantasy draft capital, his steady climb in both snaps and touches was to be expected. (Full Article)
  • The Steelers defense has allowed one 100-yard receiver, two receiving touchdowns and two wideouts to average over 20 yards per catch. The Steelers entered 2021 as a pass-funnel defense and it has remained true through two weeks. (Full Article)
  • Stacking Josh Allen will always lead you to Stefon Diggs, but the leverage is with Emmanuel Sanders, who has a 19.7-yard average depth of target (aDOT) this season. You don't need to run it back a Washington player because of how stout this Bills defense has been so far this season. (Full Article)
  • Robert Woods saw his role increase from Week 1 to Week 2, accounting for 31% of the Rams targets and a team-high 43% air yards share last week. His usage was overshadowed by Cooper Kupp’s touchdowns but that should keep Woods’s rostered rate in check. (Full Article)

TL;DR Betting Week 3

  • The Cardinals’ 10th-ranked offense should have no trouble scoring on the Jaguars' 26th-ranked defense, which will drive the Jags to chase points when they’re on offense. Maybe we’ll see the Arizona defense step up again as they did in Week 1, but with both these teams ranking top-six in situation neutral pace, there will be plenty of scoring opportunities on both sides of the ball to push this game past the over/under. (Full Article)
  • The Seattle Seahawks are often seen as a run-first, ground-and-pound offense, but that may be changing slightly. To start the season, Seattle has a neutral-script pass rate of just under 60%, which is above the league average. (Full Article)
  • Through two weeks, Antonio Brown saw 28% of the team’s air yards and averaged five targets per game. This screams blow-up game for Chris Godwin with lessened target competition in a 55-point game total, with both teams expected to pass a ton. (Full Article)
  • Damien Harris's rushing yards over correlates well with a Patriots win. He's handled 70% of the running back carries to date, and has no real threat to his early-down workload in neutral game settings. He's topped this in six of his last nine games, including both of this season's games. (Full Article)
