Start em Sit em Week 3

We’re going to change up the format here a little and just list who to start by position based on a 12 team league from here on out.

Start em

Quarterback

Philip Rivers looks to keep having a big year as he faces the Colts and their defense couldn’t stop my coed rec league flag football team. Lots of good matchups this week, and don’t give up on Wilson yet.

Look for your familiar faces to have a big week again. We’re unsure what is happening in KC right now, so I excluded them from the list.

Wide Receiver

Wide Receiver has become the premier fantasy football position. Expect these guys to have a big effect on your games. Look for bounce back games from guys like Antonio Brown and AJ Green that had bad week 2’s after great week 1’s.
