Faraz's Week 3 Takeaways

Devon Achane is him

Achane looked explosive on his 200-yard, 4 TD day, and has a chance to win the starting job in Miami. The problem is, he has two veterans in Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson who might not make it easy for him to get as much work as we want him to. Either way, we probably have to empty our FAAB to get him.

Jordan Love is a fantasy QB1

He had a tough matchup against the Saints, but came through with his best fantasy performance. He has two solid matchups over the next two weeks at home against Detroit and in Las Vegas. And he’ll get Christian Watson back soon.

Sutton is Broncos WR1

Courtland Sutton has received a 27% and 29% target share in the two games with Jerry Jeudy. This lines up with reports from camp, so he’s the preferred Broncos WR right now.

Tank Dell gets upgraded

Two straight weeks for Dell now leading the Texans in target share. Him and Nico Collins are locked into the top-36 at the position going into Week 4. Both are great plays against the Steelers next week. CJ Stroud is looking good.

Alexander Mattison makes his case

Mattison felt the heat after the Cam Akers trade and did what he could to hold him off for now. 87% of snaps, 27 opportunities this week, and 6+ targets each of the last two weeks is very encouraging for now. He needs to get the fumbling in check; he’s lucky he got his overturned this week.

Sam LaPorta breaking the mold

LaPorta had his breakout game, and is a Top-10 TE at the very least moving forward. He had a respectable 17% target share coming into the week, and saw 33% this week in a very tight target distribution overall from Jared Goff. It’s what you want to see.

Jahmyr Gibbs takes over backfield

This isn’t a D’Andre Swift situation, folks. Gibbs moved into the lead back role with David Montgomery out, taking 71% of the RB carries along with all 3 goal line snaps. Montgomery can miss more time, so we could see some big weeks coming up.

Don’t underestimate the Cardinals

The Cardinals handled the Cowboys at home, and they had their fantasy relevant players come through on a lot of our benches. Zach Ertz didn’t come through (he’s losing his job to Trey McBride), but James Conner and Marquise Brown did. Now we’re going to start them in San Francisco next week, and they’ll shit the bed. Of course.

Jaylen Warren closing in

Warren’s snap share has gone up in two straight weeks, and reached an equal share with Najee Harris on Sunday night. Warren had 12 opportunities to Najee’s 20, but outscored Harris in PPR for the third straight week.
