Your Week 3 Sunday NFL Fantasy Playbook
Toro Times

Two weeks are in the books, which means we’re 16% of the way done with the fantasy season (don’t bother checking if my math is right, I didn’t). RotoViz pumped out a bunch of articles this week, so just in case you missed them, we’ve gone ahead and categorized them for you below.

However, first I have some notes on early reports this morning.

It sounds like Keenan Allen may not play today. Always be sure to check Twitter for the latest injury updates, but you need to have an alternate plan if you were counting on Allen. Malcom Floyd should see a bump in usage although the BUF pass defense looks pretty good this year. EDIT: Sounds like Keenan is active.

The reports from the Houston beat writers are that Arian Foster isn’t playing (three minutes after I wrote this, the reports changed to “Foster will test his hamstring” and then three minutes after that they changed to “Foster out”). Alfred Blue is expected to get the start although it’s unknown if there will be a full blown timeshare between Blue and Jon Grimes, or whether Blue will get the majority of the work. I have Blue in a few leagues where I added him late in the week on the Foster news. However, I’m not playing him ahead of guys like Ahmad Bradshaw or Lamar Miller.

Vernon Davis sounds unlikely to play this week, which is going to give the start to Derek Carrier. Carrier was targeted a few times in limited playing time last week and he has the profile of an explosive pass catcher. Additionally, ARI is known to be horrible at defending TEs. I would expect to see Carrier’s name in some GPP lineups today on the daily sites. I’m actually going to start him in a league where I have Jordan Cameron. I’m worried about Cameron’s ability to finish a game.

Jamaal Charles probably won’t play, so you can plug in Knile Davis. I sort of expect the Chiefs to have a tough time staying in positive game script territory against MIA, although Davis is also involved in the pass game, so I don’t think you really have to worry.

Bernard Pierce probably isn’t going to play, which would probably result in some kind of a timeshare between Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Considering how little Taliaferro has played thus far, I think it’s reasonable to assume that Forsett would get the majority of the work. However, it’s also possible that the coaches just see him as a change of pace guy, who wouldn’t do well with the full workload.
