Fantasy Football Week 3 Quarterback Rankings

1. Jay Cutler (DEN) – He is the hottest fantasy QB out there right now throwing for 650 yards, 6 TD’s, and only 1 interception in his first 2 games. Cutler should continue to sizzle in week 3 against a shaky New Orleans pass defense that has given up an average of 256 yards passing in their first 2 games against average QB’s (Garcia and Campbell).

2. Tony Romo (DAL) – He is coming off of a strong week 2 performance against the Eagles, a team he had previously struggled against at home. Romo did make a couple of critical errors, but from a fantasy standpoint, it was a nice game for him. Romo will face the Packers in week 3. The Packers have given up more yards through the air than they would like to this point, but they also have more interceptions (4) than TD’s allowed through the air (3). If Romo can limit his mistakes, he should have another big game. Last season Romo threw for 309 yards, 4 TD’s and 1 interception against Green Bay.

3. Peyton Manning (IND) – While Manning has shown flashes of the greatness we are all accustomed to in his first two contests, he has also had his fair share of shaky moments. This is probably due to a battered offensive line and the lack of a quality running game against two run stopping defenses (Bears and Vikings). In week 3, Manning will face rival foe Jacksonville at home. Manning has had pretty good results against the Jags in recent years and threw for 288 yards and 4 TD’s against them at home last season. He might continue to have a rough patch here and there, but Manning is still more than worthy of a starting spot on your week 3 fantasy roster.
