Sure, it might have been against the Jaguars, but Andrew Luck’s Week 3 performance was flawless. The Colts QB completed 31-of-39 passes for 370 yards (plus 15 rushing yards) and four TDs. While he does face a Titans defense on Sunday that is giving up the second fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs, it’s still a safe a bet that Luck will hum it again.

He is joined by four other newcomers to the No. 1 slot in their respective positional rankings in DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Dan Bailey and the Texans defense. The first week of NFL byes comes a scramble to either stay afloat with a .500 record or turn the corner into a contender with a move to 3-1 or 4-0.
