Running Back Rankings Week 3

DeAngelo-1024x576 Running Back Rankings Week 3

QB | WR | TE | DST | K

DraftKings Start of the Week
Melvin Gordon – SD @ IND ($5,800)

Although, I’m not fully sold on Gordon just yet, this one is a no-brainer. Coming off the first 100 yard performance of his young career, he’s presented with the perfect opportunity to make it two straight. The Colts defense has allowed 125 rushing yards per game, 4.6 yards per carry, and the most fantasy points of any team to opposing RBs. The Chargers have been surprisingly balanced offensively – running on 52% of their plays – and even without Keenan Allen, Philip Rivers alone is enough to keep the defense honest. Gordon is in line for another nice day come Sunday.

Sit of the Week
LeSean McCoy – BUF vs. ARI

The schedule makers did McCoy no favors to start off the season. After opening with the Ravens, he took on the Jets, and now he gets the Cardinals who have allowed the 5th fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs. Buffalo’s offense is in flux – having fired their Offensive Coordinator following their loss to the Jets – but, they’ve had extra time to prepare for this matchup having played on Thursday… Merely false hope. It doesn’t sound like Sammy Watkins will play Sunday, meaning more focus on McCoy/Taylor, loaded boxes, and a low probability for success. Keep him on the bench this week.
