News and notes for week 3 QB rankings

Robert Griffin III – RG3 is officially the highest scoring fantasy QB through the first 2 weeks.  He receives a HUGE boost in the rankings to must-start status.  Should you start RG3? Yes as long as he plays this well.

Matt Schaub – Schaub dropped the furthest in our rankings as he is down to 27th overall for week 3.  Averaging just over 10 pts a week won’t cut it for most fantasy owners, and he is not even a recommended option in 2 QB formats.  That Texans run game is so good, they don’t need to rely on their QB’s arm.

Kevin Kolb – After leading the Arizona Cardinals to a win over the New England Patriots in week 2, Kolb receives a boost into the top 30.  He successfully lead the final drive in week 1, and now with a solid road win in week 2 he could hold on to the job the rest of the season.

Matt Cassel – Cassel has had the same formula for the first 2 weeks, play from behind and throw the ball around.  While you might not think of Cassel as a top 15 option at QB, his team will be behind so often this season, that he puts up solid stats, especially in the 4th quarter.
