IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 vs. Atlanta Falcons
Jacoby Brissett only had 146 yards last week against the Titans, but he threw three touchdown passes and ran seven times for 25 yards on the ground. It was his second game in a row with fewer than 200 yards, but also his second game with multiple touchdowns, and he now has five touchdowns and only one interception through two games.
This week, Brissett should have a little easier time after facing two pretty stout defenses to start the season. The Falcons didn’t give up big numbers to Kirk Cousins in Week 1, but that was largely because Dalvin Cook ran all over them early and the Vikings only attempted 10 passes. Cousins was efficient with his attempts, completing 80% of his passes, including a touchdown. The Falcons picked off Carson Wentz twice last week, but allowed 231 yards and a touchdown and got torched by Nelson Agholor. Expect Brissett to be more efficient than Wentz was last week and to put up solid streaming numbers. We have him ranked outside the top-15, but if you’re scrambling from injuries at the position, he’s worth a gamble in what should be a pretty good matchup.
