Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Three

I won my game last week with good performances from most of my players, and because I benched RB C.J. Spiller, who is permanently on my bench. It looks like RB Clinton Portis, expected to be my flex starter, is now my #2 RB, and I will have to roll with more WRs than I’d like. I’m glad I picked up Mark Clayton, who was THE WR pickup of the week last week according to me, since he’s probably now a weekly starter for me. Since I’m hurting a little at RB with mediocre (for now) depth options like Willis McGahee and Chester Taylor (plus Spiller), I stashed-and-hoped with RB Anthony Dixon, who would be money for me if Frankie Gore got hurt. Garrett Hartley came through for me, so he’s my guy, and I’m giving the Raider defense another try, since I think QB Derek Anderson stinks.

Here’s my lineup for Week Three:
QB    Tom Brady, NE QB
RB    Adrian Peterson, Min RB
RB    Clinton Portis, Was RB
RB/WR    Mark Clayton, StL WR
WR    Greg Jennings, GB WR
WR    Jeremy Maclin, Phi WR
WR    Malcom Floyd, SD WR
TE    Jermichael Finley, GB TE
D/ST    Raiders D/ST, Oak D/ST
K    Garrett Hartley, NO K

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
