Fantasy Football Depth Charts
Fantasy Football Starters – Week 3
A fantasy football depth chart helps a player know which players to start in their coming fantasy football games. We’ve gone through the last two weeks and tried to figure out which backup running backs are getting the ball behind the starter, and which backups are starting to get more carries from one week to the next.
This should help you figure out who to handcuff to your starting running back on your fantasy football roster, as well as who you would be best starting in a desperation ff start. Once or twice a season, you need someone to come off your fantasy football bench and provide a boost that helps you makes the fantasy playoffs. These fantasy football depth charts might help you do that.
We’re going over the potential fantasy football starters you can use for Week 3. Keep in mind these fantasy football depth charts apply only for this week and may not reflect the standard non-injury depth chart for these NFL teams. So don’t look at this Week 4 and assume Darren Sproles is the right play.
Fantasy Football Quarterbacks – Backups Playing
There are only two NFL backup QBs who are starting in Week 3. These will mount as the season continues, but we already have Matt Cassel returning from injury.
Kevin Kolb, QB, Philadelphia Eagles – Kevin Kolb is almost certain to get another start in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, making him a viable starter if you’re desperate for a QB. Keep an eye on this one, but I’m assuming Andy Reed sits McNabb to give Donovan 3 weeks to rest, with the Eagles bye week coming up in Week 4.
Seneca Wallace, QB, Seattle Seahawks – Matt Hasselbeck has an injury very similar to Donovan McNabb’s, so those trying to figure out how long Hasselbeck will be out should keep an eye on the Donovan McNabb situation. Seneca Wallace is likely to get the start this week against the Chicago Bears, which is not a recommended start. Start Kolb if you have to pick up one of these two players for a desperation start.
Fantasy Football RB Depth Charts
Because of handcuffing situations, the running back depth charts are the most important pecking order in fantasy football. So we have expanded coverage of the fantasy football rb depth charts.
Fantasy Football WR Depth Charts
There are a few wide receiver situations you need to take note of. Due to injuries and emergences, several obscure NFL receivers are becoming fantasy football factors early this season.
Johnny Knox, WR, Chicago Bears – Because of an injury Sunday to the Bears normal #3 WR, the rookie from Abilene Christian, Johnny Knox, got on the field and posted 6 receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers. Now there’s talk that Johnny Knox might take time from Earl Bennett. That seems like Chicago sports media talk for now, but Johnny Knox is being picked up in most leagues I’m in.
Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – If you can’t find Mike Sims-Walker in your fantasy football magazines, he’s the rookie who was being touted as a fantasy football sleeper under the name “Mike Walker”. Troy Williamson beat out Mike Sims-Walker for the starting job in preseason, but went out for the year on Sunday. Mike Sims-Walker promptly entered the game and put up 6 receptions for 106 yards and a TD.
Mario Manningham, WR, New York Giants – You’re not paying much attention if you don’t know about Mario Manningham by now, but it bears repeating. Domenic Hixon and Hakeem Nicks are injured right now, opening the door to Mario Manningham. Manningham put up 150 and a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys on national tv. Looks like Manningham will be the Giants’ big play receiver.
