DRAFT Week 3 Preview

The DRAFT week 3 preview is here! Basically in light of our recent partnership with this awesome DFS site I’ll be writing a weekly preview each week highlighting my favorite plays at each position. Now since DRAFT uses a snake draft format without any salary considerations, I’m really just giving you rankings adjusted for the site’s scoring system.


Your starting lineup on DRAFT is QB, RB, RB, WR/TE, WR/TE with varying league sizes. Aside from H2H matchups, 3 and 6 person drafts seem to be the most common so with regard to my rankings I’ll be giving you guys 6 QBs, 12 RBs, 12 WRs and 6 TEs each week.

That said, I’m certainly not married to this format so if you have any suggestions on how to make it better don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments or on twitter (@D_bro1389).

Off we go!


1. Aaron Rodgers

  • He’s going to be in this spot almost every week.

2. Matt Ryan

  • Gets to stay indoors and the offense looks fine w/o Shanahan.

3. Derek Carr

  • o/u on this game is 53 and most of should come in the air.

4. Tom Brady

  • He struggled against this defense in the playoffs last year, but that’s not enough to knock him down more than 2 spots.

5. Matthew Stafford

  • All of his weapons are healthy and they’re going to need to score to keep pace with Atlanta.

6. Kirk Cousins

  • Could easily be the breakout game we’ve been waiting for with both Crowder & Pryor.


1. Le’Veon Bell

  • Be patient, the production will come.

2. Jay Ajayi

  • Workhorse role against the Jets is as good as it gets.

3. Kareem Hunt

  • He keeps finding his way into the endzone.

4. Ty Montgomery

  • It seems GB no longer has any interest in delegating RB touches.

5. Devonta Freeman

  • Neutral matchup, but Coleman seems like less of a threat then last year.

6. Ezekiel Elliott

  • Last week showed what happens when Dallas gets away from the run.

7. Melvin Gordon

  • Passing game involvement continues to compensate for poor efficiency on the ground.

8. C.J. Anderson

  • Broncos are going to ride him for as long as he stays healthy.

9. LeSean McCoy

  • Concerning spot given what happened to Zeke last week, but they’re at home and Buffalo’s D should keep this close enough for him to remain involved.

10. Dalvin Cook

  • With Keenum expected to start once again, Vikings will rely heavily on the run game.

11. Christian McCaffrey

  • Any RB facing the Saints has to be a top 12 play.

12. Leonard Fournette

  • Jags will almost certainly struggle to move the ball in this one, but the floor can only be so low on a player getting this many touches.


1. Antonio Brown

  • Road Ben sure didn’t hurt Brown’s value in week 1.

2. A.J. Green

  • Following last week’s disaster I’d expect Green to be peppered with targets in this one.

3. Julio Jones

  • Maybe this is the week Julio finally becomes the primary red zone option.

4. Mike Evans

  • Although Xavier Rhodes is legit, Evans is open even when he’s covered.

5. Keenan Allen

  • Slot work should keep him away from Peters and he’s virtually a lock for 10+ targets.

6. Michael Crabtree

  • As much as we don’t want to admit it, the reality is that he’s Oakland’s most reliable and consistent receiver.

7. Michael Thomas

  • He’s so much better than the other options currently in this passing game.

8. Odell Beckham Jr.

  • While the upside is impossible to ignore, Eli might honestly get sacked 15 times this game.

9. Jordy Nelson

  • Full practice on Friday is an encouraging sign.

10. Amari Cooper

  • He’s still their best bet for a big play and Norman unlikely to shadow.

11. Doug Baldwin

  • I’m willing to go down with the ship on this one.

12. DeAndre Hopkins

  • They literally don’t throw the ball to anyone else.


1. Zach Ertz

  • Wentz loves him and the weakness of the Giants defense are their linebackers.

2. Travis Kelce

  • How many other TE’s score on that shovel pass last week?

3. Rob Gronkowski

  • You have to assume the groin injury isn’t too serious if the Pats are willing to throw him out there.

4. Jordan Reed

  • I expect Cousins to bounce back in a big way this weekend.

5. Martellus Bennett

  • He didn’t do much with them, but it’s hard to ignore the 11 targets he saw last week.

6. Delanie Walker

  • So steady and I can see the Titans being conservative with their throws in this one.
