Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910672 Sit - Russell Wilson Sit+-+Russell+Wilson Fantasy Football

I’m telling anyone that will listen that they should bench any and every Jaguars' fantasy option this week. At the same time, I also think it would be wise to bench Russell Wilson. The Jaguars allow the second-fewest passing yards per game this season. Why is that? Teams don’t need to pass on them. The Jags are 31st in rushing yards allowed, with 173.5 yards per game. That means it will be a big, big day for Marshawn Lynch and possibly Robert Turbin. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910670 Sit - Darren McFadden Sit+-+Darren+McFadden Fantasy Football

I have a theory why the Denver Broncos allow the fewest rushing yards this season: Peyton Manning. When a team is down so early in the game, the rushing attack is basically thrown out of the window and it turns into a passfest. That is one reason why I think you should bench Darren McFadden. Also, in nine meetings between Run DMC and Denver, he’s only rushed for an average of 80.3 yards per game and scored twice. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910668 Sit - Cecil Shorts Sit+-+Cecil+Shorts Fantasy Football

In the roller coaster that is Cecil Shorts’ short 2013 season, he’s suffered under Blaine Gabbert and thrived with Chad Henne. Now, the quarterback won’t matter because his team is facing Seattle’s defense on the road. So far, no team has allowed fewer passing yards per game (113) or passing touchdowns (one) than the Seahawks. Add the noise, the elements and, well, it doesn’t look good for anyone wearing teal and black. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910669 Sit - Daryl Richardson Sit+-+Daryl+Richardson Fantasy Football

There are five teams that allow less than 10 fantasy points per game to running backs: Seahawks, Raiders, Jets, Chiefs, and Cowboys. This week, Daryl Richardson and the Rams face Dallas. In Week 1, Monte Kiffin’s defense allowed 50 total rushing yards and caused two (David Wilson) fumbles. Last Sunday, Jamaal Charles had his chance against Big D's D and only rushed for 55 yards. Also, Richardson's rushing attempts fell from 20 to 10 last week.  – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910671 Sit - Maurice Jones-Drew Sit+-+Maurice+Jones-Drew Fantasy Football

An injury to Maurice Jones-Drew's ankle (diagnosed as a sprain) could be a good reason to bench the high draft pick. Fantasy owners of MJD will have no problems adhering to this advice to sit the struggling running back. In two games, Jones-Drew has combined for 72 rushing yards and zero touchdowns. Unfortunately for him, those numbers will likely stay low when his Jaguars head to Seattle. The Seahawks have allowed the fewest fantasy points to the running back position this year (six points per game). Sadly, MoJo owners would LOVE to get those six points. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910661 Start - Coby Fleener Start+-+Coby+Fleener Fantasy Football

When fellow Stanford Cardinal teammates Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener were drafted by Indianapolis in 2012, it didn’t take an expert to predict that they would have fantasy football success together. However, it did take a year longer than expected…and an injury to Dwayne Allen. With Fleener now the lead tight end for the Colts, Luck targeted him eight times for four catches and a touchdown. – Adam Meyer

Andrew Weber - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/17/091713-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G5_2013091714532086_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/17/091713-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G5_2013091714532086_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910659 Start - Marlon Brown Start+-+Marlon+Brown Fantasy Football

Before the 2013 season started, not many knew the name Marlon Brown. Now, he’s one of the most-added wide receivers in fantasy football (other than Eddie Royal and DeAndre Hopkins). Through the first two games, it's as if Torrey Smith has turned Anquan Boldin and Brown, with no Dennis Pitta, has turned touchdown target for Joe Flacco.  Brown is the only Ravens receiver to catch a TD pass this season. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910658 Start - Joique Bell Start+-+Joique+Bell Fantasy Football

In some news from the “not-so-shocking department,” a Detroit Lions’ running back is hurt. While the severity of Reggie Bush’s condition is not 100 percent clear, what is official is that Washington allows over 200 rushing yards per game this season. Yikes. Because of that, Reggie Bush (if healthy) and Joique Bell are must-starts this week. I’d even consider Sam Martin, the rookie punter for Detroit who fumbled in his only “rushing attempt” (it was really a botched field goal). – Adam Meyer

Matt Kartozian - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/17/091713-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G3_2013091714532084_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/17/091713-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G3_2013091714532084_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910662 Start - Andre Roberts Start+-+Andre+Roberts Fantasy Football

It was a disappointment when Larry Fitzgerald only caught two passes for 33 yards last week against Detroit. It was a surprise that Andre Roberts received eight targets when Michael Floyd was the frontrunner to benefit from Fitzgerald’s absence. With another week of practice and a matchup against the woeful Saints' defense, Roberts should have an opportunity to produce points. – Adam Meyer

Jeff Curry - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/17/091713-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G2_2013091714532087_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/17/091713-NFL-Start-Sit-OB-G2_2013091714532087_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 3 31910660 Start - Alex Smith (Thursday) Start+-+Alex+Smith+%28Thursday%29 Fantasy Football

This Philadelphia Eagles team is just what fantasy football owners want: a lot of offense and no defense. So far, Chip Kelly’s D has allowed 360.5 passing yards per game, second-worst in the NFL. Alex Smith gets his turn Thursday night. Philly’s defense has allowed opposing quarterbacks to average 28 fantasy points per game through the first two weeks. I don’t think that trend stops with the shortened week. – Adam Meyer
