Fantasy Football Advice: First Look at NFL Week 3

Hard to believe but we are already through two weeks of NFL DFS action this season and there have already been a number of surprises (both good and bad) as well as some teams who are doing exactly what we thought they would (i.e. the Dolphins being terrible and the Patriots and Chiefs being awesome). This article is going to be a Fantasy football advice “first look” at the coming week every Tuesday in which I attempt to give you a starting point for your research by providing some relevant statistics, pricing discrepancies across sites, and my own thoughts and insight on some of the players with the primary focus being on DFS.

If you’re anything like me, you can’t help but pull up next week’s slate as early as Sunday night once the main slate has concluded. Whether you are really amped up after a big week of winning or trying to turn the page quickly after a rough day, it makes sense to dive into the next slate as early as possible and try to get a sense of where you might be going the following week.

While we have two weeks of stats and data to act upon, I will still caution DFS players from reading too far into certain situations as we usually don’t have a really clear picture of what teams are trying to do with gameplans and personnel until right around week 5.

My goal here is to give you some information to chew on for the next few days until the vast majority of NFL DFS content drops later in the week. I would highly encourage anyone who wants to improve their lineups and roster construction to do as much independent research as you can before you start reading articles filled with player picks to see if your research lines up with the experts. And just a reminder, don’t forget to read my GPP pivots column every Friday!
