Week 3 Fantasy Football: Prescott vs. McLaurin

by: Yatriinfo.com

In Week 3 of the 2023 Fantasy football season, the model advises starting Dak Prescott, who performed well in Week 2 against the Jets and faces the Cardinals' defense in the upcoming game. 

The Cardinals' defense has struggled against quarterbacks, making Prescott a top 10 option in QB rankings for the week. 

Terry McLaurin, the Commanders' wide receiver, who is typically a strong Fantasy performer, surprisingly falls out of the top 45 at his position in Week 3 rankings. 

Despite Washington's 2-0 start, McLaurin has yet to establish a strong connection with new starting quarterback Sam Howell.

The model attributes McLaurin's lower ranking to a tough matchup against the Bills' defense, which has been stingy with passing yards this season. 

A notable trade involving Cam Akers moving to the Vikings could impact running back rankings for Week 3. 

The trade potentially affects Alexander Mattison's touches as the lead back for the Vikings, especially with other running backs like Ekeler, Montgomery, and Williams dealing with injuries.
