Smooth Moves by Gronkey Punch

  • The Arizona Cardinals Defense had the highest score of any DEF in the league this season with 34.00 points.
  • The 33.90 points scored by Cam Newton was the third-highest QB score of the week and is the sixth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • The sixth-highest RB score of the week and the ninth-highest RB score of the season came from Le'Veon Bell, who scored 26.20 points.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Brandon Marshall posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 24.90 points.
  • Rob Gronkowski had the fifth-highest TE score in the league this week with 14.10 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • Had the foresight to snatch up Andy Dalton, who scored 35.32 points to rank seventh in the league in scoring, but unfortunately left him on the bench.
  • Joseph Randle was left on the bench, where he bested his expected 12.49-point total by putting up 30.50 points.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started the Carolina Panthers Defense, which then scored below their 10.24-point projection with 7.00 points.
  • Jeremy Hill was last in the matchup in scoring with 2.10 points.

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.
