Come and get your Week 3 QB rankings!
Before we dive into the rankings, here are our thoughts on a few quarterbacks playing this week. If you’re only here for the quick and dirty quarterback rankings, scroll down
Peyton Manning – If you can get near the draft day value that Peyton was earning, 4th among quarterbacks, we recommend selling. Peyton’s arm is struggling severely, and the offensive line is only going to continue to let him get pummeled as the season continues. He has already been sacked seven times with a dozen additional hits. We expect Peyton to provide high-end QB2 numbers this week against the Lions, but the chance of injury and more interceptions is a concern.

Cam Newton – How about that touchdown?! Cam Newton put up some great running yards last week, and with the next two weeks being against New Orleans and Tampa Bay, this pattern is likely to continue. Our only caution is that Newton has yet to exceed 200 passing yards this season, so there is potential for him to be boom-or-bust.
Sam Bradford – Bradford has failed to live up to expectations so far this season, and Chip Kelly’s glorious offense is starting to feel the heat. Currently Bradford has only earned 19 fantasy points, putting him squarely between Kirk Cousins and Joe Flacco. Now facing an invigorated Jets defense that just made Andrew Luck look inept, we expect it to take a few more weeks before Bradford is able to regain form.
Teddy Bridgewater – Lake is all in on Bridgewater this week (at QB12), noting the easy matchup against San Diego and the progress that he has made in using his new offensive weapons. Berger is exercising a little more caution (QB17) until Bridgewater shows consistency in his gameplay.
With that, let’s get on to it. Here are our Week 3 QB rankings from 1 to 35.
