Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
