Fantasy Football: Week 3 Player Rankings

Buffalo’s C.J. Spiller made the biggest move in the Week 3 Player Rankings as he continued to take advantage of Fred Jackson’s absense and vaulted into the Top 3 RBs following his 170 total yards and 2 TD performance against Kansas City.  Michael Bush of Chicago also will look pick up for an injured starter in Matt Forte, out with an ankle injury, as he makes his first appearance in the Top 15.

A host of QBs look to finally get back on track and return to 2011 form, including Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford as Drew Brees grabs the top spot in Week 3 against a porous Kansas City defense through two weeks.

As for the pass catchers, another injury at the expense of the New England Patriots in the form of reliable TE Aaron Hernandez prompted both the signing of veteran Kellen Winslow and the added attention back on Rob Gronkowski.
