Weekly Fantasy Football – Week 3 Running Back Picks

Rice had a down game in week 2 against Tennessee, but that was still good for 96 total yards and a touchdown. Rice is becoming the most consistent fantasy back in the NFL, and he should have a big game against an injured Rams team that has struggled to stop anyone through the first two weeks.

2. Adrian Peterson

The Vikings have gotten off to a slow start, but it is not fault of Peterson who has 218 rushing yards and two touchdowns in his first two games. Peterson is remarkably consistent even as the rest of the offense struggles. With McNabb not providing the passing threat the Vikings were looking for, they will lean more on Peterson to shorten the game against an explosive Lions offense. If they fall behind, he will also play a significant roll in the passing game.

3. Rashard Mendenhall

With Isaac Redman getting more carries in week 2 for the Steelers, fantasy owners are starting to worry about Mendenhall. However, he still had a decent day, including ค่าคอมแทงบอล ufabet a touchdown, and if he is going to get on track, he should do it against a really bad Colts defense that was beaten down by Peyton Hillis in week 2. Expect Mendenhall to have strong day as he solidifies himself as Pittsburgh’s number one running back.

4. Mike Tolbert

Tolbert is another player that underperformed under large expectations in week 2. On a positive note, he had 73 receiving yards. He and the rest of the Chargers offense will put up big fantasy numbers hosting a Chiefs team that gave up 89 points in their first two games. Kansas City’s goal line defense is much more porous than New England’s, which should provide Tolbert with at least one goal line touchdown.

5. LeSean McCoy

McCoy sustained a hand injury Sunday against the Falcons, but he indicated it will not hold him out against the Giants. He also rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns in Atlanta. Although the Giants are a division rival and still have an aggressive defensive line, their linebackers are nearly all out with injuries. The injuries to this unit will make it easier for McCoy to find and accelerate through rushing lanes. He will exploit this weakness for a big day.
