As you lock down your FanDuel lineups for Week 3, here’s a lineup to cash in with.
The appeal of DFS is the results don’t carry over to the next week. If you used our FanDuel Week 2 lineup, hopefully you’re ready to dust off and move on to Week 3 relatively unscathed.
Moving on to Week 3, we’re again focusing on the Sunday main slate of contests over at FanDuel to shape the week’s ideal lineup. And again, I’ll be using this lineup myself in at least one FanDuel contest.
Without further buildup, let’s get right into the best lineup for FanDuel NFL contests in Week 3.
FanDuel NFL 2021: Best lineup for Week 3
Quarterback: Teddy Bridgewater, Denver Broncos vs. New York Jets ($7,300)
Bridgewater is off to a nice start this season, throwing for 264 yards and 328 yards in the first two games with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in each. Coupled with efficiency, he is in some heady company with his start to the season.
Bridgewater gets another nice matchup in Week 3. The New York Jets haven’t been shredded by opposing quarterbacks in their first two games, and they’re a top-5 fantasy defense against the position. But they’re also in the bottom half of the league in pass attempts against (32.5 per game), as they’ve trailed in the second half of two losses. The secondary is still thin on talent, and the pass rush is not formidable.
Bridgewater pairs a high ceiling with a high floor in fantasy this week. Down the list into some cheaper options, I avoided what would be much-lamented super stack by going with the Broncos’ quarterback.
