Week 3 Fantasy Football Top Streaming Options: Fire Up Jared Goff!

Nick Roberts Sep 22nd 2:19 PM EDT.

Welcome to Week 3. We’re still a few weeks away from bye weeks, but I’d imagine everyone has some holes in their fantasy football roster due to injuries, underperforming players, or just bad drafting (not you, of course). However, holes can be filled and there are almost always good streaming options. It’s just a matter of finding them. I know you’re all busy, so I spent some time digging up some Week 3 streaming options. Let’s get it!

Fantasy SP is proud to announce the recent launch of our NFL DFS Optimizer! Dominate on DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo with our trustworthy Lineup Generator!

Quarterbacks

Carson Wentz, Washington Commanders

Everyone loves a good revenge game narrative, but that’s not my reason for having Wentz here. Besides his hot start to the season (two straight games of 300+ yards and seven total touchdowns), Wentz has better weapons to throw to than he has in recent year and he’s likely to have to throw to them quite a bit as I’m guessing the Commanders will be trailing a superior Eagles team this weekend. I wouldn’t be shocked if Wentz ends up as a top-10 quarterback this week. 

Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

Goff’s matchup against the Vikings isn’t great, but it’s not horrible either. More importantly, he’s been playing really well through the first two games of the season with 471 total yards and six touchdowns. We’re still talking about Jared Goff, so the wheels are likely to fall off at some point. But I don’t think it will be this week, and I’d be more than fine starting him in most fantasy leagues.

Running Back

Tyler Allgeier, Atlanta Falcons

He’s not the most talented running back in the 2022 rookie class, but Allgeier may end up being the most productive rookie running back based on his situation. While Cordarrelle Patterson still looms, the Falcons aren’t going anywhere and seem to be ready to see what they have in Allgeier. He split carries with Patterson last week, so while that might just be a blip, it also might represent the changing of the guard at running back in Atlanta. He’s worth a shot against the Seahawks this week. 

Eno Benjamin, Arizona Cardinals

Truth be told, I think the Eno Benjamin vs. Darrel Williams situation is going to be annoying and they’ll most likely split carries. However, we can’t start both of them (well, we can, but we shouldn’t), so I’m going to pick who I think is the better of the two running backs and hope we find some lightning in a bottle. Oh, and this is all assuming James Conner doesn’t play, as expected.

J.D. McKissic, Washington Commanders

We’ll limit this recommendation to PPR leagues, but McKissic is getting the pass catching work we all thought he would as he’s seen 10 targets through two games (including seven last week). While you’re never going to get a week-winning performance out of McKissic, he’s the perfect guy to slide into your RB2/flex spot if you’re dealing with an injury or underperforming player.

Wide Receiver

Russell Gage, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

I won’t belabor this one much as Gage is a pretty obvious play this week. He’s basically the last man standing at wide receiver for the Buccaneers and has a good chance at double-digit targets from Tom Brady. Double-digit targets from Tom Brady?!?! Sign me up.

Sterling Shepherd, New York Giants

The Giants are going with a WRBC approach so this is a bit risky, but Shepherd is coming off a week where he saw 10 targets. While he didn’t do much with those targets (six catches for only 34 yards), it’s hard to ignore 10 targets. Fire up Shepherd as a solid flex play.

Greg Dortch, Arizona Cardinals

If Rondale Moore sits again this week (he only practiced on the side on Thursday), I’m going back to the Greg Dortch well again. He paid off last week with four catches for 55 yards and a touchdown and now has 13 targets through two weeks.

Tight End

Juwan Johnson, New Orleans Saints

While Taysom Hill has the potential to be annoying, Johnson saw the most targets of any tight end last week with seven. He now has 12 targets through two games and has turned those targets into six catches for 83 yards. There is obvious bust potential here, but there’s really no reason Johnson can’t be a top-10 tight end this week.

Hayden Hurst, Cincinnati Bengals

Hurst is a little banged up, but he’s hard to ignore after seeing 15 targets through two games. While the Bengals have a lot of mouths to feed, Hurst has turned his targets into 10 catches for 70 yards and is a great streaming option this week.

Defense

Baltimore Ravens

This didn’t completely pay off for me last week, but I’m still picking against the Patriots offense until they show me they’re capable of scoring touchdowns without major help from their opponent (like a muffed punt off the returner’s facemask last week). Mac Jones has three turnovers through two games and it should probably be at least four turnovers.
