Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30201399 Dud - Michael Tuner vs TB Dud+-+Michael+Tuner+vs+TB Fantasy Football

Tampa Bay ranked 31st in rush defense heading into Week 3. The Buccaneers allowed 156 rush yards per game the first two weeks. With Michael Turner averaging 107 rushing yards per game, this should have been a no brainer for owners. Womp wahhhhh! Turner finished with 20 yards on 11 carries for a whopping 1.8 yards per rush. All that glitters is not gold. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30201405 Stud - Torrey Smith vs STL Stud+-+Torrey+Smith+vs+STL Fantasy Football

Hey, Torrey Smith meet fantasy owners. Fantasy owners meet Torrey Smith. Something tells me that if the hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday’s game isn’t serious, the rookie out of Maryland will be one of the most coveted waiver wire additions of the week. He finished with five receptions for 152 yards with three touchdowns against St. Louis. Keep in mind, the wide receiver was filling in for the injured Lee Evans. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30201400 Dud - Frank Gore vs CIN Dud+-+Frank+Gore+vs+CIN Fantasy Football

How the mighty have fallen. In three games this season, Gore is averaging 2.5 yards per rush. This is a guy whose career average is 4.6 ypr. His 53.0 yards per game average is 22.8 yards below his career average. He finished with 17 carries for 42 yards against the Bengals. Kendall Hunter scored the Niners’ lone touchdown. It might be time to consider benching Gore until further notice. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30193009 Stud - James Casey vs NO Stud+-+James+Casey+vs+NO Fantasy Football

Here are three words you probably won’t hear again this season: fullback fantasy stud. Houston’s James Casey erupted for 126 receiving yards and the first touchdown of his career against the Saints. He finished with seven targets – third most on the team Sunday.  Honorable Mention: Jermichael Finley. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30201323 Dud - Chris Johnson vs DEN Dud+-+Chris+Johnson+vs+DEN Fantasy Football

For a brief moment on Sunday, Chris Johnson reminded us why he’s been a first-round fantasy lock. It was after Matt Hasselbeck found him on a 34-yard catch and run early in the second quarter. Now is when you start to panic. After a rare fantasy highlight, reality quickly set in the rest of the way. Johnson finished with 13 carries for 21 yards (1.6 yards per rush). I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30201404 Stud - Darren McFadden vs NYJ Stud+-+Darren+McFadden+vs+NYJ Fantasy Football

You could say Run DMC is “tricky, tricky, tricky” to take down. You could say that. The New York Jets faced the music on Sunday. McFadden rushed for a career-high 171 yards with two touchdowns. Heading into the game, New York was a top-10 rush defense allowing 3.3 yards per rush (88.0 rush ypg). McFadden averaged 9.0 ypr (17 carries) on Sunday.  Honorable Mention: LeSean McCoy – Ryan Fowler

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/09/25/3_20110925194916898_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/09/25/3_20110925194916898_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30193016 Dud - Cam Newton vs JAX Dud+-+Cam+Newton+vs+JAX Fantasy Football

Go ahead, blame it on the rain. Yeah … yeah … whatever. After back-to-back games where he passed for 400-plus yards, the Jaguars and Mother Nature held Newton to 158 passing yards and one touchdown. Carolina actually focused on their running game in the second half. The bottom line is the rookie won his first NFL game, but fantasy owners are still drinking a little too much Cam Kool-Aid. During our FOXSports.com Sunday morning fantasy football chat, I was asked a couple times if owners should start Newton over the likes of Aaron Rodgers. Take a deep breath guys. – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30202541 Stud - Wes Welker vs BUF Stud+-+Wes+Welker+vs+BUF Fantasy Football

When does a franchise-record for receiving yards in a game not mean a darn thing? When you are Wes Welker (16 receptions / 217 receiving yards) and your New England Patriots waste a 21-point lead against division rival Buffalo and proceed to lose in the game’s final seconds. Good thing for Welker, fantasy owners are all about the stats. Just don’t tell Mr. Belichick.  Honorable Mention: Mike Wallace. – Ryan Fowler

Richard Mackson - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/09/25/092511-NFL-STUDS-AM-G2_20110925164326501_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/09/25/092511-NFL-STUDS-AM-G2_20110925164326501_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30202535 Dud - Andy Dalton vs SF Dud+-+Andy+Dalton+vs+SF Fantasy Football

I get it. It’s always fun to pick up the flashy new sports car, when you have a perfectly reliable sedan in the garage. But it’s something else to fawn all over Andy Dalton a week after passing for 332 yards with two touchdowns against a bad Broncos team. Still, fantasy owners wanted to make their case for starting the rookie quarterback instead of sticking with whatever sedan they had on their bench. If they took the new car out for a spin, a bumpy ride followed: 157 passing yards, two interceptions and no touchdowns against San Francisco. Anybody have AAA? – Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 1240 Fantasy studs and duds gallery: Week 3 30193012 Stud - Eli Manning vs PHI Stud+-+Eli+Manning+vs+PHI Fantasy Football

Remember when Philadelphia signed Nnamdi Asomugha and everybody thought the Eagles’ secondary was impenetrable? Those were the days. Eli Manning, with fourth and fifth-string wide receivers on the field, threw for 254 yards and four touchdowns against Philly. He made Victor Cruz (110 yards / 2 TDs – Stud honorable mention) a strong fantasy candidate to replace Mario Manningham if the wide receiver is out for an extended period of time. Honorable Mention: Joe Flacco – Ryan Fowler

The Buffalo Bills are 3-0. The Detroit Lions are 3-0. The Cleveland Browns are 2-1 thanks, in part, to this tremendous grab by Mohamed Massaquoi against Miami. The third week of the fantasy football season was full of surprises, too! - Ryan Fowler
