Just when you’re easing into the NFL season, half of the top starting running backs in the league get hurt, Aaron Rodgers has the worst game of his career, the Giants and New Orleans have a shockingly low-scoring game and Sam Bradford emerges as a force. We know nothing. No one knows anything. All we can do is make an informed decision and hopefully these stats and highlights will help guide you to a win. This is your Stefon Diggs-themed Week 3 fantasy primer.
Start of the Week
Julio Jones: He was dealing with a tweaked ankle in Week 1, now he’s nursing a strained calf, but his Monday night matchup against New Orleans should prove to be fruitful. Yeah, everyone was off on their predictions of a points orgy between the Giants/Saints, but even though the touchdowns were low, the yards were there. Sterling Shephard had 8 catches for 117 yards, Victor Cruz had 4 for 91, and Odell Beckham Jr. had 8 for 86. Julio is going to get his, and unlike the Giants receivers, he’s going to see the end zone.
