Now dig in, and let’s recap:

3rd week prizes

Best player in Asia: crows QB Lamar Jackson

Tua Tagovailoa’s second week breakout stole the spotlight by MVP caliber a week ago, but Jackson is back in a showdown patriots, swings through Bill Belichick’s defense with ease. By the end of the day, the fast driver exceeded 100 yards on the ground and totaled five touchdowns as Baltimore approached 40 burgers in Foxboro. Elite talent, reaffirmed.

NFC MVP: Eagles de Brandon Graham

Carson Wentz didn’t even get a chance to let him rip against his old team, because the Eagles’ d-streak had been in his face all day. Graham was the frontrunner in attacking Washington, with 2.5 sacks total, five quarterback hits and a passing deflection as Philly limited the leaders to 240 yards in a 24-8 defeat. Not bad for a 34-year-old with a torn Achilles tendon.

Coach of the week: JaguarDoug Pederson

Make this two straight weeks for Dougie B. Fellow AFC coach Mike McDaniel deserved every bit of the hype leading a surprising team 3-0, but no one has had the Jaggs lose the Colts and chargers in successive weeks. Trevor Lawrence looks much more comfortable by the week under his new boss, and DC boom Pederson’s first pick, Mike Caldwell.

Mr Cole of the week: Colts QB Matt Ryan

He didn’t necessarily have a nice day in a defensive battle with the bosses, but guess what? Anytime you can get a body attack, Chris Jones stumbles, and still stands tall to greenlight Patrick Mahomes’ defeat, you deserve the props. Indy isn’t dead yet at age 1-2, and their QB flexibility has helped a lot.

fantasy favourites

CBS Fantasy Team Have you covered with the latest waiver recommendations, fourth week forecast, and more. Meanwhile, these are the guys I’d look forward to if I were you:

  • Seahawks QB Jeno Smith: You don’t want to rely on it every week, but as a streaming option, you can do much worse. Smith has now thrown 2+ TDs in two of his three starts despite an average overall performance in Seattle.
  • Jaguar WRZ Jones: Trevor Lawrence reached out to everyone in a big win over the Charger, but Jones now has 24 goals in three games. Clearly he has cemented himself as a pick-up among the top three players in growing offense.
  • Packers Romeo Dobbs: That pre-season connection began to translate into the games, as the rookie collected at least five goals from Aaron Rodgers in two of his three games. His role should only grow as we go forward.

true or false

Which advanced narratives – popular or fictitious – are actually valid?

Chargers are in trouble: Not only did Justin Herbert hit the court with his injured ribs on Sunday, Los Angeles also lost Rashon Slater and Joey Bossa against the Jaguar, with stars like Kenan Allen and Corey Linsley already out. Herbert’s presence will keep them dangerous, but this wave of medical issues could destroy his support team. Verdict: Right

The Patriots are all dead: After hitting hardly Steelers In Week 3 New England couldn’t keep up with the high-flying crows on Sunday, and Mac Jones – who was already recovering from back pain – reportedly suffered a more serious ankle injury. With the Bills and Dolphins having the juice at the AFC East, their hopes for the playoff seem insufficient. Verdict: Right

The ponies returned to competitor status: Hitting heads is a massive “W”, isn’t it? Well, yes, to fend off the 0-2-1 splash. But their attack, despite the finishing touch, was still quite ugly, and KC didn’t help itself with some costly penalties and special teams slips. At the moment, it is better to bet on another team in South Asia. Verdict: False

On the horizon: Week 4

We still have a few matches to complete in Week 3, but here’s how we rank the best matches for next week:

3. rams in 49ers: Jimmy Garoppolo will make his debut as a replacement for Trey Lance (and repeat his role in QB1) in prime time to close out Week 3, then return under the bright lights for Monday night’s rematch in the 2021 NFC Championship.

2. Heads in pirate: The Super Bowl 55 rematch, when Brady and the Bucks turned heads, would be a rebounding point for both contenders, after Kansas City stumbled on itself against the Colts.

1. Bills in the Ravens: fire power. You can’t get much better than Josh Allen vs. Lamar Jackson, and the latter should be excited to show up at home after the Allen’s Bills beat the Ravens to advance to the AFC Championship title in 2020.
