Any time you get a win it's a great feeling as they are so hard to come by in this league. And anytime you can score a TD while winning it's a really good feeling. Admittedly, I've yet to play my best football but we are right where we want to be as a team in terms of our record at 2-0, so I can't complain. Believe me no one puts pressure on me like myself so I'll stay pushing for that signature game. The most important thing is winning a game in the division against Washington this week, and if I have a great game en route to that so be it. Our offense makes defenses pick their keys on what they want to stop. And I'm quite OK with that. Look what happened this last week with Darren Sproles (Sproles had 7 receptions for 152 yards and a rushing touchdown in the Eagles’ win).

Fantasy is a speculative game. Predict the future, and you look like a genius. Don't, and you're painfully human. Gazing into the crystal ball, here's our view on 10 intriguing over/unders for Week 3.
No passer has surpassed 20 standard fantasy points in Seattle in 14 straight games. With that in mind, Peyton Manning fantasy points at the Left Coast Link 19.9.
Scott – UNDER. I don't want to hear any of the "but he's Peyton Manning" arguments. Our game is about numbers, not names, and Seattle's defense is ridiculous at home. Yes, Phil Rivers solved this unit last week (helped by the ridiculous Antonio Gates). But remember what Aaron Rodgers did in Seattle on opening night, and what teams usually do in this hornet's nest. Welcome to the Boomtown.
Andy – UNDER, slightly. I think Manning will deliver individual numbers that look something like his Super Bowl performance (but without the lopsided final score), finishing in the 250-280 yard range, with either one or two scores and two turnovers. Against the Seahawks defense, in their building, that's a heckuva day.

Back in May, when the Minnesota Vikings used a third-round pick to select Jerick McKinnon, the team surely viewed the Georgia Southern rookie as a developmental prospect. McKinnon had opened his collegiate career at defensive back, then later became a triple-option QB and tailback. The Vikings viewed him as a change-of-pace runner and potential third-down back, though he only caught three balls in his senior season and he had little meaningful experience in pass protection.
But suddenly, given the uncertainty surrounding Adrian Peterson's NFL future, McKinnon is a player of interest for the fantasy community — and not simply as a dynasty league lottery ticket. The kid played 23 snaps in Week 2 for the Vikings, per Pro Football Focus, while Matt Asiata saw 47. McKinnon's explosiveness and athleticism are many levels beyond Asiata's, so it's really not difficult to imagine him seizing a greater share of the backfield work.Sun, Sep 2110:00 AM PDTMinnesota at New OrleansPreview Game

Sans Keanu Reeves, the replacements have officially arrived. After the injury imp and unspeakable off-the-field incidents rocked the fantasy world a week ago, standouts Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson, Mark Ingram and Ryan Mathews will give way to promoted backups Knile Davis (We hope), Matt Asiata, Khiry Robinson and Donald Brown.
On this week’s decisive program, Brad Evans, Brandon Funston, Andy Behrens and Shaun King will attempt to guide owners through the sordid RB mess. We’ll also provide the very latest on the availability of Jordan Cameron, Eric Decker, A.J. Green and Vernon Davis, project exactly how many catches Wes Welker grabs in his first game back and, of course, answer your pressing questions.
Here’s how you can join the circus:

Under normal circumstances, you don't necessarily want to stack a fantasy lineup with players tied to the Thursday game. But this week — finally — we have a matchup with significant shootout potential. The defenses involved in the opening game of Week 3 have offered little resistance to this point.
Somehow, despite having faced a pair of sketchy backup QBs to begin the season (Derek Anderson and Austin Davis), Tampa Bay's defense is still looking for its first interception. Atlanta is the only team in the league that has not yet recorded a sack, and the team's defense is allowing a league-worst 472.0 total yards per game.
So tonight, points and yards should be plentiful. We've got a pair of widely available fantasy assets for your consideration...

Welcome, or welcome back, to another season of NFL Shuffle Ups. We'll start with a modest little preamble, as these things often do.
The assignment of a Shuffle Up is to get a read on rest-of-season value. You can use these lists to judge your roster, consider trades and pickups, or simply to enjoy a good-old-fashioned debate.
A few rules of thumb:
-- These are NOT weekly ranks. If you want the Week 3 ranking story, click over here.
-- The ranks are, of course, fantasy-driven. There will always be a disconnect between real-life and fake-game value.
-- The ranks consider what's happened to this point, but they're not mere listings of what's already happened. If you want the list of scoring leaders to this point in the season, there are several places you can find them.

Group-think can be an especially scary thing when it comes to fantasy football rankings. After all, the unpredictable nature of the NFL game is part of what makes fantasy football so popular, and why some people like to say that the NFL acronym stands for "No F****** Logic." But when one of our Yahoo fantasy football analysts veers particularly far away from the rankings consensus, our curious nature begs for an explanantion. So, with that in mind, I've identified two players from our Week 3 rankings that our Yahoo analysts love/hate significantly more than the rest of us, and have asked them to explain their reasoning. I'll kick things off with a couple of my outliers:
Love him: Jonathan Stewart, Car, RB - Funston RB rank No. 20 (Y! rank No. 38)
