By Week 4, this weekly article will focus on the best of the first plays AFPA takes shape. Let’s take a look at the best matchups of Week 3.

Goff looked great in Week 2 with 256 passing yards and four passing touchdowns against the Commanders. The Lions hit the road for the first time this season and took on a Vikings defense that showed who they were in Week 2 compared to Week 1. A total of 496 yards are allowed in Minnesota Eagles Week 2, compared to 371 in Week 1. Aaron Rodgers There’s a better QB than Goff, but it’s clear that Goff and his aggressive teammates are working more efficiently. Give me that offense with competent coaching against a defense that, played to take on their division opponent, appears to be only an elite offense. Detroit has the opportunity to run the ball D’Andre Swift and let the beef cook with it Amon-Ra St. Brown And a strong supporting cast. The Lions have already attempted 77 passes and their defense will more than likely exceed 30 passes with the expectation of slowing Justin Jefferson,

Despite losing week 2, Houston Texans Damon Pierce overused and almost bothered broncos in Denver. Pierce played on Snap less than 29% of Week 1 and saw work on 62% of plays. Week 3 Looks Like A Great Week For Pierce (And Possibly Rex Birkhead, too) against bears. Chicago has been fielded in two matches, passing 176 and 203 yards. 49ers And packer, Pierce gets a chance to play a defense he’s familiar with, practicing against Lavi Smith’s cover 2 defense. The Bears’ defensive coordinator Alan Williams worked with Smith in Tampa Bay and runs parts of the same plan.

Sometimes it’s as simple as shining a genius. Despite being listed as New York JetsWR4 On his first depth chart, Wilson has made his way onto the field. According to SportsInfo Solutions, even though he was actually considered their fourth option in Week 3, the Jets have played 25% (10) of their passing plays in “10 personnel” (four WRs, one RB) this season. The Jets make out “11 personnel” at one of the lower rates in the league, but it’s safe to say that Wilson is going to play more, despite what the team’s website says about his place on the depth chart.

with positive and negative steelers‘ passing attack, and Freermuth has been on the positive end through two games. He has 17. is 9/97/1 goals And a Brown receives the defense that would be shorthanded and the already tight ends allowed to accumulate fantasy points. The Ghosts of Ian Thomas ended Week 1 with its most fictional score since Week 4 of the 2020 season, and tyler conklin Week 2 saw nine goals reach double-digit fantasy points across PPR formats. Freermuth has played 85% of Snaps and will be visible from Mitch Trubisky As long as he is the starter and not making bad decisions on passing plays.

Despite being hurt on offense, the Cowboys’ defense is doing its job and allowing Dallas to stay afloat. Defense is the top 10 in yards allowed, yards allowed per game, yards allowed, sacks and points per game. Daniel Jones There is an easy target in the imagination. He has so far thrown 200 yards in one game and jeopardized the ball (one INT, one fumble). Jones has also been dismissed eight times in two games, the same number of sacks the Cowboys have. If the Cowboys closed out the Saxon Barkley the same way the Carolina Panthers did in Week 2, Dallas would be in a position to win against a division rival.
