Tower of Power – Week 3 Fantasy Rankings

THE TOWER OF POWER – WEEK 3

Weekly Fantasy Rankings

In this regular article, we give you a lowdown of players whose fantasy performances were worthy of our top 20 this week – based on 0.5PPR format scoring.

For the interest of longevity and variety, we have only included the top 6 Quarterbacks in this list. This is to allow other offensive positions spaces on the board. Otherwise, most of the list would consist of QBs! However, we have included the weekly points rank of the players – so you can see where they lie on the overall points scoring for the week.  

So, after Aaron Jones became the second Packer in two weeks to climb the tower to the top, whose fantasy performance put them in first place after Week 3’s fixtures? 

1. Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints – 38.2pts (2nd)

Kamara had a monster Receiving day for the Saints. Catching 13 of his 14 targets for 139 yards and 2 scores. Adding 58 yards rushing on 6 carries, Kamara is rewarding his fantasy owners this year. If he keeps getting the same amount of targets each week, expect to see a lot of Kamara in the Tower of Power.

2. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs – 40pts (1st) 

Mahomes is the top Quarterback in the Tower of Power this week. With an unbelievable performance, Mahomes threw for 385 yards and 4 TD’s. Rushing for 26 yards and another TD. Mahomes defeated Lamar Jackson and the Ravens keeping Kansas undefeated and looking for another Super Bowl.

3. Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks – 32.5pts (4th)

Lockett broke 100 Receiving yards for the first time this season. Having exactly 100 yards from 9 catches. It was his 3 TD’s that sets him top of Wide Receivers this week. When you have a Quarterback like Wilson throwing you the ball, Lockett has no limit. 

4. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks – 36.8pts (3rd)

Wilson is surely front runner for the MVP at this stage. Having another stellar performance yet again and keeping the Seahawks unbeaten. Throwing for 315 yards and 5 TD’s. Adding 6 carries for 22 yards, Wilson is looking unstoppable at present!

5. Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots – 31.3pts (6th)

Somewhat of a surprise, but Burkhead finds himself as the RB2 this week. With White still away from the team, Burkhead had 3 total TD’s on the day. 2 on the ground and 1 in the air. 49 rushing yards and 49 receiving yards on 7 receptions. Burkhead had a day to remember. 

6. Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills – 32.2pts (5th)

The other player who is pushing Wilson for that MVP battle is Allen. Throwing for over 300 yards in each of his first 3 games. This week he had 311 yards, 4 TD’s, 1 INT, 8 rushing yards and another TD. Allen takes the Bills to 3-0 and top of the AFC East.

7. Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings – 27pts (10th)

The only Rookie Wide Receiver in the top 10, Jefferson had his breakout game in week 3. Securing 7 of his 9 targets for a whopping 175 yards and a score. Jefferson is now the clear cut number 2 Receiver in Minnesota. With a defence that likes to give up points, Jefferson could become a WR3 or better for the rest of the season. 

8. James Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – 27.9pts (9th)

Robinson has now locked down the starting job in Jacksonville, showing he can do it on the ground AND in the air. Rushing for 46 yards on 11 carries with 2 TD’s, and catching all 6 of his targets for 83 yards. 3 weeks in a row Robinson has had 90 total scrimmage yards or more. He’s the man for the Jags, for now. If he’s on your fantasy waiver wire, he’s a absolute buy right now.  

9. Cedric Wilson, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 25.2pts (13th)

Not normally a name associated with big plays and scoring touchdowns, Cedric Wilson showed his fellow Cowboy Wide Receivers how to do it. Wilson made three figures in receiving yards and two touchdowns in this frantic shootout with the Seahawks. And all of just 7 targets (5 receptions)! Can he make a habit out of this?

10. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys – 29.5pts (7th)

Prescott recorded his highest amount of pass yards of the season this week with 472! Completing 37 of 57 of his attempts and 3 TD’s. The 2 INTs hurt Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys losing to the Seattle Seahawks by a score. Next up, Cleveland. 

11. Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams – 28.2pts (8th)

Goff led the Rams to an almost perfect comeback, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Still, Goff put up numbers after being behind right from the get go. 321 passing yards, 2 TD’s and 1 INT, adding a TD on the ground. Big numbers for fantasy owners. Goff and the Rams will have an easier game against the Giants next week.

12. Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans – 26pts (11th)

The King is back! Henry ran supreme in his game with the Vikings, and finally found his endzone groove again. The 119 yards he put down on the ground were capped off superbly by two one-yard touchdowns. I would have not liked to have been the defender in his way as he leapt over the top for the second one! He also added two receptions for 11 extra yards, topping up those fantasy points a little more. 

13. Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers – 25.8pts (12th)

Ekeler made a statement this week, finally finding the endzone on the ground against the Panthers. Although he saw a season-low in carries, he got his groove back in the receiving game, getting a season-high 11 catches off as many targets for 84 yards. This was a major contributor to his highest fantasy point haul so far. 

14. Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings – 24.9pts (14th)

Dalvin Cook has been a bright spark in a dismal start to the Vikings’ season. Plenty of touches meant plenty of yards – 181 to be exact. He not only continued his fantasy success, but also success in finding the endzone. Another rushing touchdown makes it four for the season so far. Dalvin is Cooking!

15. Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Miami Dolphins – 24.7pts (15th)

Anything the moustache can do, the beard can do better! In what could be considered a surprise result, Fitzpatrick showed the Jaguars what he could still do as a veteran, throwing two passing touchdowns and even running one in himself. A much needed boost to a sluggish Dolphins start. 

 16. Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers – 23.7pts (19th)

Allen was the rock for rookie Justin Herbert against the Panthers. Always available, the Quarterback targeted him 19 times during this fight back game. Keenan caught 13 of them for 132 yards, including a contested catch touchdown pass in the endzone. It must be reassuring for Herbert to have a player like that in the squad.  

17. Allen Lazard, WR, Green Bay Packers – 23.6pts (20th)

With Devante Adams out, the Lazard King could reign supreme. And he tried his hardest to reach the top. Eight targets led to six receptions, one touchdown – and a colossal 146 yards. Lazard looks to be coming into form at the right time for the Packers.  

18. Jimmy Graham, TE, Chicago Bears – 21pts (29th)

People should stop ruling Jimmy Graham out. Like Allen Robinson, Graham was a key component in the Bears’ revival on Sunday. Despite his 60 yards from 6 receptions (10 targets), his two touchdowns propel him up the chart. In a disappointing fantasy week for Tight Ends, he is the only to feature on the list. 

19. Allen Robinson, WR, Chicago Bears – 23.3pts (24th)

Robinson was one of the crutches in the performance that helped the Bears pull down the Falcons. Trubisky and Foles combined gave Robinson a solid 13 targets throughout the game. The Wide Receiver turned the 10 catches he made into 123 yards, as well as a touchdown. As long as the Bears are airing the ball, Robinson is in the picture. And he certainly was this week!

20. Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns – 23.5pts (23rd)

Chubb finishes off the list this time, with another solid fantasy performance from the Running Back. Three figure rushing yards (108) for the second straight week against a normally robust Washington defensive front. Another two touchdowns. If Nick Chubb is trying to hold off Kareem for the top job, he’s doing a blinder of a job at the moment. 

SAME AGAIN NEXT WEEK?
