Draft Street Week 3 Picks: Quarterbacks Matthew Staffod, Detriot Lions – $16,086: Unless you’re just beginning to enjoy the 2013 Fantasy Football season you know that Washington has been shredded through the air, just like in 2012. Mr. Stafford throws a lot too. It is the perfect storm for offensive excellence. Tom Brady, New England Patriots – $14,434: Long week, too much talent, an offense ready to explode, need more reasons to gobble up the under-priced T. Brady? It hasn’t been pretty thus far for the Poster Boy, but despite the Bucs strong defensive play thus far, you have to think Brady is due for a big day. Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys – $14,033: In Romo’s last 5 home games he has 15 TDs and only once has failed to go over 300 yards. The Rams aren’t stopping anyone through the air and the Boys will be looking to cash in after a tough loss in Kansas City last week. Romo has all the weapons to have a big day. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks – $12,845: Vegas has these odds at almost 3 TDs for the Birds, so expecting a modest day from Wilson isn’t asking a lot. It is unlikely he finishes as the top signal caller for the day, but he should be in the top 12 and he is priced to target. Russell Wilson has an ideal matchup, but the only question is whether he airs it enough to reward his Fantasy owners.(Photo Credit: Kevin Casey/Getty Images) Draft Street Week 3 Picks: Running Backs Knowshon Moreno, Denver Broncos – $11,373: Make no mistakes he is the man in the Broncos’ backfield. This one may get out of hand and he may turn his carries over to Ronnie Hillman or Montee Ball, but he’ll get his first and this is a great matchup. Moreno will score, scamper and snag a few catches on Sunday. Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins – $11,332: This will be a shootout and Morris will have ample opportunity to take advantage of the Lions and should see enough carries in the Red Zone to score. The price is low enough and his consistency and involvement in the offense make him a low risk play. Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans – $11,020: The Chargers have surprised, but only on offense. Their defense is getting run over and expect Chris Johnson to do the same Sunday. There are concerns over his goal line usage, but he is due for a big outing and the price and matchup are favorable. Joique Bell, Detriot Lions – $9,958: Washington hasn’t stopped anyone and Bell is rolling along at 4.9 yards a carry since the beginning of last season. He is better through the air and Reggie Bush isn’t likely to factor in significantly. Bell will have a nice day. Bernard Pierce, Baltimore Ravens – $8,661: Ray Rice is doubtful and Bernard Pierce is delightful. Starting his first game at home, the duel threat out of the backfield is going against a Texans team that has underachieved defensively thus far. Modest yards and a score cover the cost and Pierce is capable. Pierre Thomas, New Orleans Saints – $4,179: Mark Ingram’s health doesn’t sound good and Thomas is under appreciated, valued and often used by the Saints. He’ll post a nice game, in what stands to be a high scoring affair. He is more than capable in the running and passing game and could find pay dirt. Robert Turbin, Seattle Seahawks – $4,299: Expect Turbin to grab enough carries to easily reward on his low price tag. It is an extremely risky investment, but it allows you to load up your lineup elsewhere. The Seahawks shouldn’t have any reason to use Marshawn Lynch late.   Enter Draft Street's $1000 NFL Free Roll | Signup & Deposit to receive a 100% Bonus up to $200 Draft Street Week 3 Picks: Wide Receivers Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons – $15,041: Recipe for Fantasy Wide Receiver success: Good QB, targets, favorable matchup. Check, check, check, Jones is on track to be the best Wide Receiver in Fantasy Football. There is nothing scary about Miami and Atlanta will be attacking vertically. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys – $13,652: Anytime Bryant is priced below the top options he is a must own. Matchup nightmare and proven weekly consistency make him a target in all leagues. He could have gone good for 2 scores and 200 yards if he didn’t have a costly drop and horrible offensive pass interference call against him last week. Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers – $11,519: Last week is in the past and the Colts are on deck. The Niners will look to remind everyone that they’re a force and beating up on Indy is the way to do it. Expect Boldin to have a nice day. Indianapolis hasn’t stopped anyone yet in 2013. Tavon Austin, St. Louis Rams – $9,920: The Rams are going to find ways to make Austin an offensive weapon, through the air, on the ground, however. The matchup is fine and the score will be high. What is most intriguing is how Austin was used inside the 20 last week. He is a budding Fantasy star. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos – $9,240: Anxious owners got some relief last week with Decker’s improved game, but expect him to find pay dirt against the Raiders this week. The game should get out of hand, but before it does expect Peyton Manning to call his number when it counts. The price is right. Marlon Brown, Baltimore Ravens – $8,378: Brown is quickly establishing himself as an excellent Red Zone target. Furthermore, the Ravens are hurting for passing options and Ray Rice is out. Brown is inexperienced and there is some risk, but he is a huge target who is quick off the line. Is Marlon Brown becoming an End Zone Maven?(Photo Credit: Doug Pensinger/Getty Images) Draft Street Week 2 Picks: Tight Ends Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers – $9,736: Olsen’s chemistry with Cam Newton is a big plus and his score last week is intriguing. The matchup isn’t scary, as both teams need a win and there should be ample points on the board. Olsen will get plenty opportunities to cash in again this week and his price is reasonable. Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts – $6,892: It’ll be Stanford days all over for Andrew Luck and Mr. Fleener now that Dwayne Allen is done for 2013. Fleener responded last week with a score and his chemistry with Luck cannot under estimated. The matchup is more favorable to Tight Ends than anything too.   Draft Street Week 2 Picks: Defense & Special Teams Minnesota Vikings – $5,672: The Vikings are among the highest priced options, but the Browns are about to send out an offense depleted of talent. The price is reasonable enough, in fact, that I wouldn’t recommend starting anyone else. Go with the Vikings and expect them to get after Brian Hoyer, eat up the Browns’ offense and help you out.   Signup with Draft Street for great Daily Fantasy Games | Deposit to receive a 100% Bonus up to $200 The post Draft Street Week 3 Picks appeared first on Fantasy Sports Locker Room.
