Week 3: Standard Player Rankings
As two weeks have passed in the 2010 fantasy football season it is becoming easier to read some of the early season trends with different players and teams. Some star players have yet to have a good game and show production for your squad, but it’s still early in the season. The biggest problem fantasy owners will have is dealing with injured players like Michael Turner or Ryan Mathews.
One player who has fallen completely off the start wire is C.J. Spiller of the Buffalo Bills. Spiller has been a complete non factor in his first two games and isn’t close to being a fantasy starter at this time.
While Spiller has been in effective and Mathews is injured, it is rookie Jahvid Best that has taken the fantasy world by storm early on. Best has five touchdowns in his first two games and even total over 150 receiving against the Eagles last Sunday. Best may have his issues of playing strong for sixteen games as most rookies do, but he is a tremendous talent.
Anyone who watched him with the Cal Bears wouldn’t be surprised to see him have a nose for the end zone and make big plays. Still, I can’t think anyone thought he would come out this strong to begin the season.
This coming week Best will be challenged against the Vikings, but because he can run and catch, he is a must start every week. Look to Best as a strong No.2 running back for your fantasy team moving forward.
