The 2015 NFL season continues to deliver us some primetime Fantasy Football Performances. That success should continue for many of the top fantasy Football stars in week 3 around the NFL as well as some Fantasy Sleepers who could take a step forward.
One of those Fantasy Sleepers is wide receiver Travis Benjamin for the Cleveland Browns. Benjamin was even a bigger Fantasy Sleeper for us early in the week prior to the team announcing Josh McCown would be back under center in week 3. Benjamin and the Browns offense have a perfect opportunity to put up some numbers against a struggling Oakland Raiders defense.
Through their first two games the Raiders defense has been scorched in the passing game allowing 653 yards. Along with Benjamin another solid option is going with Issaiah Crowell or one of the Browns running backs you like as the Raiders are also allowing 118 yards rushing per game on the ground.
Along with Benjamin here is our complete list of Fantasy Sleepers to consider in week 3 of the 2015 NFL season.
T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville Jaguars: Yeldon is a perfect fantasy play this weekend against a New England Patriots defense that has allowed the fifth most rushing yards over the first two weeks of the 2015 NFL season. Yeldon who is coming off his first 20 plus carry game in week 2 should have an opportunity to move the ball. This comes after going up against two solid run defenses over the first two weeks.
Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins: The Miami Dolphins offense needs to find a way to go after the Buffalo Bills secondary. That being said look for Ryan Tannehill to look to take a few deep shots to Stills who has been very quiet over his first two games with his new offense. The Bills have allowed nearly 700 passing yards over their first two games.
Knile Davis, Kansas City Chiefs: While the bulk of the carries will go to Jamaal Charles look for Andy Reid to work both backs against a very bad Green Bay Packers rush defense. We have seen over the past few seasons that Davis has the ability to be a top gear running back when giving the chance.
Cole Beasley, Dallas Cowboys: Looking at this matchup on paper it looks to be a high scoring contest. Unfortunatly the Cowboys will be without Tony Romo turning to Brandon Weeden. That being said if the Atlanta Falcons offense moves the ball early expect the Cowboys to have to throw the ball opening up the opportunity for Beasley as well as Terrance Williams to make some plays.
Brandon Weeden, Dallas Cowboys: This is one of those fantasy sleeper plays you go all in with the Cowboys quarterback. In the end he should have an opportunity to make some plays against an Atlanta Falcons defense that has 313 passing yards per game over their first two contests. You should also look at a few of their lesser known receivers with Dez Bryant out and Jason Witten on the injury report.
Other Fantasy Sleepers for week 3 include David Johnson, Lance Dunbar, Ryan Mallet, Ty Montgomery and Owen Daniels.
