Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917732 Stud - Antonio Brown vs. CHI Stud+-+Antonio+Brown+vs.+CHI Fantasy Football

Antonio Brown put on a show Sunday night against the Bears albeit in a losing effort.  However, for fantasy owners, his 31.6 fantasy points (standard-scoring) were third-most among all players in Week 3.  He finished with nine receptions for 196 yards and two touchdowns. - Ryan Fowler

Before he left the game in the second half with a knee injury, Spiller had nine rushing yards on 10 carries with no touchdowns on the season.  Fred Jackson finished the game with 110 total yards.  It's not quite panic time for Spiller owners' considering Spiller rushed for over 100 yards in Week 2, but it hasn't been pretty.  Doug Marrone said they were going to feed Spiller the ball so much he would throw up.  The only ones that are nauseous remain his owners. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917547 Dud - Eli Manning vs. CAR Dud+-+Eli+Manning+vs.+CAR Fantasy Football

It's not just Eli.  The entire Giants' offensive unit should be labeled duds in Week 3.  We'll begin with the quarterback, who finished 12-23 for 119 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.  David Wilson, already on owners' hot seat, finished with 13 carries for 39 yards.  Victor Cruz - 25 receiving yards.  Hakeem Nicks - 0 receiving yards.  Brandon Myers - 33 receiving yards.  The Giants' offense - no points. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917568 Dud - Eddie Royal vs. TEN Dud+-+Eddie+Royal+vs.+TEN Fantasy Football

The second-most added fantasy football player of the week behind James Starks, Royal finished with two receptions for 34 yards against the Titans.  Malcom Floyd could be out a few more weeks, thus Royal has value - just not 5-touchdowns-in-2-games value. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917553 Dud - Stevan Ridley vs. TB Dud+-+Stevan+Ridley+vs.+TB Fantasy Football

LeGarrette Blount led the rushing attack for the New England Patriots in Week 3 as he finished with 65 yards on 14 carries against his former teammates.  Ridley finished with 35 yards on 11 carries as the running back's disappointing start to the season reached a third game.  However, I still honestly believe once Rob Gronkowski returns, most likely in Week 4, that Ridley and Tom Brady start to click again with supplemental help from Julian Edelman and Kenbrell Thompkins. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31916694 Stud - Zach Miller vs. JAX Stud+-+Zach+Miller+vs.+JAX Fantasy Football

He may have only finished with two receptions for five yards, but today Zach Miller scored twice.  After several solid seasons with the Oakland Raiders, it marks the first time in his seven-year career the big tight end found the end zone twice in the same game. - Ryan Fowler

Joe Nicholson - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/22/092213-NFL-Studs-Duds-TV-G11_20130922174540159_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/22/092213-NFL-Studs-Duds-TV-G11_20130922174540159_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917656 Stud - Santonio Holmes vs. BUF Stud+-+Santonio+Holmes+vs.+BUF Fantasy Football

Geno Smith's first 300-yard passing day in the NFL was propelled by two of his receivers.  Stephen Hill finished with 108 yards and a score (16.8 FP), while Santonio Holmes finished with five receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown.  It was Holmes' third-best fantasy day of his career (standard scoring) with 21.4 fantasy points against the Bills.  He's still available in 90 percent of leagues. - Ryan Fowler

Ryan Broyles (Age: 25) made his debut for the Lions in Week 3 and finished with three receptions for 34 yards.  Don't think Nate Burleson (Age: 32) wasn't paying attention to the guy after his gig.  Burleson finished with six receptions for 116 yards.  That's the most receiving yards in a game for him since late-December 2007.  - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917543 Stud - Nate Washington vs. SD Stud+-+Nate+Washington+vs.+SD Fantasy Football

We like to rank our fantasy receivers WR1, WR2 and WR3.  Normally, WR1 are the top 12 fantasy receivers of the week.  Nate Washington finished with eight receptions (10 targets) for 131 yards.  The 13.1 fantasy points were 12th-best among receivers after the late games in Week 3.  The elder statesman in a young receiving corps, Washington still has value in 12-team leagues as Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Kenny Britt continue to learn the NFL ropes.  Jake Locker (30.8 fantasy points) trusts him. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31917544 Stud - DeMarco Murray vs. STL Stud+-+DeMarco+Murray+vs.+STL Fantasy Football

On October 23, 2011, the Cowboys' planned to start Tashard Choice at running back and share touches with DeMarco Murray as Felix Jones nursed a high-ankle sprain.  Well, Choice sat back and watched the rookie running back out of Oklahoma rush 25 times for a Cowboys' franchise-record 253 yards and a touchdown.  In his first meeting with St. Louis since that epic performance, and knowing Murray's fantasy expectation have since been lowered, owners got to see that spark return in Week 3 with 26 carries for 175 yards (203 total).  His 26.3 fantasy points led all running backs after Week 3's late games and are the second-most a running back has posted this season. - Ryan Fowler

Matthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/22/092213-NFL-Studs-Duds-TV-G3_2013092216344191_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/22/092213-NFL-Studs-Duds-TV-G3_2013092216344191_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Fantasy Football Week 3 Studs and Duds 31914784 Stud - Josh Gordon vs. MIN Stud+-+Josh+Gordon+vs.+MIN Fantasy Football

Oh, you thought Hoyer and Cameron defined the Browns' win?  Josh Gordon returned from a two-game suspension and Browns' offensive coordinator Norv Turner injected him directly into a pass-happy offensive assault on the Vikings' secondary.  Gordon was targeted 19 times, caught 10 balls, for 146 yards and scored a touchdown.  He finished with 22.8 fantasy points and the 146 receiving yards are a career-high.  Gordon is available in 37 percent of fantasy leagues.  - Ryan Fowler

Life, death, taxes, and Cleveland Browns' wins when all the franchise wants to do is lose.  Brian Hoyer (24.6 fantasy points) stepped up in place of injured Brandon Weeden (thumb) and led Cleveland to a comeback road win over the Vikings.  Hoyer connected with Jordan Cameron on a fade route with less than a minute remaining for the go-ahead score.  Cameron finished with three touchdowns and 66 receiving yards (24.6 FP).
