Week three of the NFL season saw a couple of tight ends explode for big points, a receiver show out in a losing effort, another make a big splash in his season debut and a running back stand out head and shoulders above the rest of the league’s ball carriers. We also saw a legendary quarterback do what he’s done for years.
Let’s a take a look at the fantasy football stars of Week 3.
Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers – Brown finally had that big game that owners have been waiting for him to have for over a year. Unfortunately for him, it came in a losing effort. He was targeted 13 times, catching nine passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns.
Jimmy Graham, TE, Saints – When Graham and quarterback Drew Brees are in sync, the Saints are tough to beat. That was the case Sunday, as Bree targeted Graham 15 times. Graham caught nine passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns.
Josh Gordon, WR, Browns – Gordon made his season debut after serving a two-game suspension to start the year. He did not disappoint any owner brave enough to start him in Week 3, as he hauled in ten of his ridiculous 19 targets for 146 yards and a touchdown.
Jordan Cameron, TE, Browns – It’s not often that two players on the Browns have outstanding fantasy days, but that was certainly the case on Sunday. Cameron joined teammate Gordon by having a monster game of his own, catching six passes off 11 targets for 66 yards and three touchdowns.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys – Murray had a bounceback game after a disappointing Week 2. He toted the rock 26 times for 175 yard and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 28 yards.
Peyton Manning, QB, Broncos – The Sheriff was out and in full force Monday night. Manning torched the Raiders for 374 yards and three touchdowns on 32 of 37 pass attempts. He has yet to throw an interception this season.
