Time is flying, we are now entering Week 3 of the 2021 season, and continuing our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. This week has some nice matchups, so there are plenty of reasons to be excited already. I hope your fantasy season is off to a good start too.
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Kirk Cousins v SEA
Cousins is one of those guys that you are ok to put in your lineup, but you aren’t excited about it. Kinda like going to Subway and getting Tuna. But, given hos the offense is playing, he is well work a start. The Titans offense worked on the ground last week, so we could see Dalvin Cook have a big game, but with the mouths to feed in the air, Cousins should have a decent outing too.
Daniel Jones v ATL
This is likely to be the only week that I would feel happy putting Jones in my lineup. That is much more about the Falcons defense than anything else. This season, they have really not been effective at all, and Jones has some receiving weapons he can rely upon, as well as rushing upside. It might be bumpy, but if you are really short this week, or in a Superflex league, go for it.
Derek Carr v MIA
I’ll admit it, I was out on the Raiders this season. I thought they’d struggle to do anything this year, with the moves they made this offseason. But Carr has looked really effective for fantasy so far. Miami haven’t had a good time of it so far this season, and while they might have periods where they are ontop, Carr should still be a viable start. That, of course, is only if he starts, as he is currently on the injury report (but he is expected to play)
Zach Wilson @DEN
The Broncos defense is legit. The Jets offense is still a work in progress. Wilson is still very much learning what it take to succeed at the NFL level, and has been inconsistent as a result. There are several players I’d start before Wilson, even in deeper leagues.
Jameis Winston @NE
Winston is an improved version of himself, but he is still inconsistent. The Saints offense is dealing with the void that has been left by Drew Brees retirement, as well as struggling with injuries. Throw in the fact they are going up against the smoke-and-mirrors of the Patriots defense, and I’d avoid.
