Tuesday Night Fortnite presented by Fanatics is a weekly Fortnite competition featuring the NFL’s best talent teaming up with Fortnite’s best streamers.

Tuesday Night featuring Fortnite is an exciting collaboration between Fortnite and the NFL. Presented by Fanatics and streaming live from Twitch.tv/FYBtv, you can catch all of the action every Tuesday night at 8:00 p.m. ET.

The competition is sure to be fierce tonight as Miami Dolphins safety Minkah Fitzpatrick teams up with FireDragon to take on Houston Texan Will Fuller and GubbaTV. Needless to say, week 3 is going to be awesome.

If you have yet to hear about this event, you can catch up on the first two weeks here. The concept is simple. Two NFL players from the following week’s Thursday Night Football game team up with popular streamers to compete against each other. Teams can gather points through eliminations, match wins and in-game competitions voted on by the fans. It’s fun, interactive and gives us a chance to see exactly how good our favorite athletes are at our favorite video game.

Week 3 match up: Minkah Fitzpatrick and Firedragon vs. Will Fuller and GubbaTV

Minkah Fitzpatrick is a rookie safety playing for the Miami Dolphins. Fresh off a national championship with the powerhouse University of Alabama Crimson Tide (and a solid win against the Chicago Bears on Sunday), he looks to continue his winning ways tonight.

Will Fuller is a beast. The Houston Texans lesser known star wide receiver is one of the game’s great young talents. Playing alongside Deandre Hopkins and Deshaun Watson, Fuller has collected 311 receiving yards and three touchdowns through five games this season. The Texans deep threat will look to continue his impressive work on the Fortnite field tonight.

The first of two great streamers joining us tonight is FireDragon. With over 133,000 Twitch followers and 6.4 million channel views, FireDragon has created a family-friendly, fun-loving world in which he entertains viewers with jokes that compliment his incredible game play. He’s sure to be a fun player to watch tonight.

Rounding out the foursome is GubbaTV. This streamer’s energy and entertainment are unmatched in the game and she’s sure to bring some flare to tonight’s match. Alongside Fuller, these two look to bring a dynamic offensive strategy to the game of Fortnite.
