It feels like this season is flying by, as we’re already heading into week three of fantasy football!

More from Fantasy Football

There are some great games to watch this weekend, including the Falcons and Lions, Seahawks and Titans, and Redskins and Raiders. Of course, you can also wake up early and watch the Ravens and Jaguars in London. Who wouldn’t want to miss that?!

My best plays this week are Jay Cutler, Ameer Abdullah, Tyrell Williams, Coby Fleener, and the Ravens defense. I like Cutler because he’s going up against the Jets, Abdullah has a weak Falcons rush defense to deal with, Williams has a Chiefs secondary prone to giving up big plays, and Fleener has been great so far this season.

As for the Ravens defense, they’ve been terrific through two games and now get a gift wrapped game in the form of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The game is in London, but the Ravens should still wreck the Jaguars offense and force Bortles into some bad throws.

As for who to avoid starting, that’d be Mariota, Blount, Hilton, Graham, and the Panthers defense. Mariota could struggle against Seattle, Blount had one touch on the football last week, Hilton has no quarterback, and Graham is banged up. The Panthers D has looked good, but they have a much tougher opponent this week in the Saints.

I hope my advice pays off for you and that by this time next week, you’re 3-0 on the season!
