Two weeks into the NFL season means we are beginning to get a pity teams and what they appear like, but still trying to mapped out what’s legit and what’s small sample size noise — although during a 17-game season, the sample isn’t particularly large.
Among those making adjustments are fantasy players and therefore the sites that track weekly projections. This week, as we take a glance at the highest 25 quarterbacks in our consensus projection rankings, we discover the projections catching up to Kyler Murray’s wild production thus far , placing him on top — also helped partially by facing a woeful Jaguars defense. Quarterbacks who are a threat to place up some points with their feet have also become a premium in fantasy, as having the power to urge yards and, within the red zone, touchdowns with their legs give them a touch added boost over their pocket-bound counterparts. That’s noticeable in how the highest 10 shakes out, as everyone besides Tom Brady in ninth is a minimum of something of a threat with their legs — Jones coming in at 10 is especially noteworthy as, while the Giants haven’t been great, he’s piling up fantasy points to start out the season passing and running.
Here is that the complete top 25 for Week 3, supported projections from ESPN, NFL, CBS, and FantasyPros.
