Players I Love:

Andrew Luck– He is coming off a rather disappointing fantasy performance week 2 against a tough Denver defense. He is an excellent bounce back candidate this week against a shaky Chargers defense still without 3rd overall pick Joey Bosa.

Antonio Brown– He also is coming off a very disappointing week against the Bengals. Although, the weather and field conditions were not very good. This week he has a matchup against the Eagles defense that is average at best. Last season’s 1,834-yard season suggests this could be the low point of the star receiver’s season.

Players I Hate:
Eddie Lacy:  He’s been average at best so far this year. Lacy (35) split snaps with James Starks (34) last week against the Vikings which is not a good sign, and now he’ll face a Lions defense that held him to an average of 5.4 fantasy points in the five games he’s played against them.

Jameis Winston: Had four touchdown passes in Week 1, and then and four interceptions in Week 2. Next up is the Rams, who held Russell Wilson to only 11.56 fantasy points last week. Winston has also thrown for one or fewer touchdowns in five of his eight career home contests which definitely isn’t a good sign for things to come.
