Fantasy Football Surprises for Week 3

Kirk Cousins– Week 3 saw Cousins explode against the Philadelphia Eagles, putting up 40 points on 427 yards and 3 TD’s. Cousins should be a great play in week 4 as well, as the Redskins play the Giants who rank 25th in Fantasy Football against opposing quarterbacks. Cousins is currently owned in 50% of Fantasy leagues.

Knile Davis– Davis performed well for the 2nd straight week, but with Jamaal Charles set to return against the Patriots, Davis has probably tapped out for the time being. If you have room to store Davis on your bench we recommend doing so, just in case the Charles injury lingers. Davis was a workhorse against Miami with 32 carries, 132 yards, and 1 TD. Davis is owned in 83% of leagues, and we expect that number to drop with the return of Charles. If you see Davis hit your waiver wire, we suggest you grab him right away.

Stevie Johnson– Johnson finally showed up for the 49ers, pulling in 9 grabs and breaking the century mark in receiving yardage. If you have star receivers on a bye week, Johnson is a great substitution against an Eagles defense that ranks 31st against opposing wideouts. Johnson is currently owned in 6% of Fantasy leagues.

Niles Paul– Paul is currently averaging over 84 yards per game, and he is only 1 yard away from Jimmy Graham for the league lead. Paul is currently owned in a meager 11% of leagues, despite the incredible numbers he has put up at the TE position. This trend points to hesitancy over a Jordan Reed return, but with Paul putting up these numbers and Reed appearing to be injury prone, we at are definitely suggesting you pick up Paul immediately.
