Ring My Bell

Even though DeAngelo Williams has scored the most fantasy points of any running back thus far, Le’Veon Bell should immediately be inserted back into DFS lineups upon his return because he’s simply that darn good. Here are my picks for the Sunday-Monday NFL week three slate:


Quarterbacks (QB)  Running Backs (RB) Wide Receivers (WR) Tight Ends (TE) Defense (DEF)
Aaron Rodgers, $15,300 Le’Veon Bell, $14,600 Antonio Brown, $17,300 Rob Gronkowski, $14,400 Seattle Seahawks, $6,500
Andrew Luck, $15,200 Marshawn Lynch, $14,400 Julio Jones, $17,200 Jimmy Graham, $11,400 Houston Texans, $6,400
Tom Brady, $14,900 Adrian Peterson, $14,400 Demaryius Thomas, $15,300 Travis Kelce, $10,100 Buffalo Bills, $6,100
Ben Roethlisberger, $14,000 Latavius Murray, $11,200 Julian Edelman, $14,300 Greg Olsen, $9,700 New England Patriots, $6,000
Russell Wilson, $13,800 Mark Ingram, $11,200 Randall Cobb, $14,100 Tyler Eifert, $9,200 Denver Broncos, $6,000

Tyrod Taylor, $12,300 Isaiah Crowell, $8,600 Donte Moncrief, $10,200 Owen Daniels, $6,300 Indianapolis Colts, $5,400
Blake Bortles, $10,400 Danny Woohead, $8,500 John Brown, $10,000 Coby Fleener (if no Dwayne Allen), $6,200 Philadelphia Eagles, $5,200


Quarterbacks (QB)  Running Backs (RB) Wide Receivers (WR) Tight Ends (TE) Defense (DEF)

Ryan Fitzpatrick, $10,500 Devonta Freeman, $8,800 Golden Tate, $11,100 Delanie Walker, $7,000 Cleveland Browns, $5,600

Top Implied Totals: Patriots, Seahawks, Packers, Cardinals, Panthers, Rams, Jets, Colts and Ravens

Other Offenses to Consider: Broncos, Steelers, Chargers, Titans, Texans, Dolphins, Eagles and Cowboys

Weather Concerns: Some rain in the BUF/MIA, NO/CAR and OAK/CLE games with scattered thunderstorms, especially in Cleveland. Wind may be a marginal issue in the SD/MIN and CIN/BAL games, so double check before rostering QBs and pass catchers from these games.

Note: I will update the quick picks throughout the course of the day and adjust picks according to who is active/inactive.
