Week 3 is going to be a tough one for many fantasy football owners. Whether you are dominating at 2-0, struggling at 0-2, or in the midle of the pack at 1-1; you need to get your lineup set up in order to get i the position you want to be in for the playoff push.

There are some tricky options this week with some games that appear to be incredibly one-sided (Seattle vs Jacksonville, Denver vs Oakland) and others that are toss-ups (Green Bay vs Cincinnati, Houston vs Baltimore, Atlanta vs. Miami). Figuring out who is in a position to succeed is vital to deciding who to start and who to sit.

To add another degree of difficulty, this week there are a number of significant fantasy injuries that are threatening to cripple some fantasy teams. If your team is in trouble due to matchup or injury issues, you’ll need some options from your bench or from the waiver wire to step up.

As you get your lineup locked in this morning, here are some options that normally wouldn’t be in your lineup, but make good plays due to opportunity or favorable matchups.

Here’s my last-minute sleepers for week 3:
