Get the best analysis for #NFL Week 3 RIGHT HERE on Fox Sports The Gambler!!
Mark Drumheller get off to a hot start with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. "The Wizard" was on Friday's episode of "The Daily Ticket" to break down his best plays of the weekend.
Below is a link to his podcast of that spot with his full detailed analysis of each game that will give you much more confidence placing your wagers today.
Mark Drumheller's NFL Plays for Week 3:
Dallas +5 over Seattle. Russell Wilson's MVP start to the season has kept Seattle's defensive struggles out of the conversation. Dallas exploded to 570 yards of total offense and now faces a Seahawks defense that is 30th in the NFL in yards per play allowed. Dallas will score whenever they want, but I will still take the extra five points with the Cowboys to cover.
New England -5.5 over Las Vegas. This is a bad spot for the Raiders coming off an emotional upset Monday night. Now on a short week they travel to New England to face a Patriots team coming off a loss with something to prove. The Raiders under Gruden has been a terrible road team going 2-6 last year. Their run defense will be exploited, and Cam Newton has the arm to take the big shots when they are open.
Chicago +3.5 over Atlanta. Don't be fooled by the scoreboard last week. Atlanta was out gained by close to 200 yards and found a way to lose like they always do under Dan Quinn. Chicago has the running game going, so Mitch won't have to do too much against a defense that is allowing 77% of passes to be completed. Fade Dan Quinn at all costs. The points are just gravy.
Tennessee -3 over Minnesota. Minnesota is allowing 35 points a game and now have both corners injured. Tannehill has the Titans scoring touchdowns on 86% of their trips to the red zone. The Vikings are the Lions with horns on the side of their helmets. It's not going to be better folks.
Philadelphia -4 over Cincinnati. This is the perfect game to get Carson Wentz confidence. Miles Sanders should have a huge game against a Bengals defense that is allowing 10.5 rushing first downs per game. Burrow has been a game competitor, but the Bengals has been terrible netting an NFL worst 4.2 yards per play. Teams that are 0-2 ATS heading into Week 3 are a profitable 22-7 ATS the last four years. Bank on the Birds pushing that number to 23-7.
Now onto Fantasy..........
Tony "Jigsaw" Cutillo placed once again thanks to his picks of Jonnu Smith and Tyler Higbee in week 2. He's been hot as of late with no cooling down in sight! Here are some picks for week 3...........
who had a high ADP. Do you start your new addition or the player who just didn't show up in week 1? Here's who Jigsaw is looking at to help you win your contest this week........
Mike Davis RB --- Mike is no CMAC, but will get enough volume to be productive. In relief of the Star RB, MD caught 8 passes for 72 yards showing he is no slouch in the passing game. This is good news for PPR owners!
Devin Singletary RB--- No Zac Moss this week, leaving Devin in line for a pig day. The Rams allowed Miles Sanders to run for 106 yards last week and are susceptible to the big play. Look for Singletary to be a good streamline or DFS pick this week.
Michael Pittman Jr. WR--- Paris is out and the NY Jets stink. I am certain Old Man Rivers, who has a 77% completion rate so far will connect for at least 1 TD with the rookie WR.
Miles Sanders RB --- Last week, Nick and Kareem carved up the Cincy defense for 210 yards, leaving Miles Sanders owners just waiting for a shot in Week 3. Start him with ease.
Aaron Rodgers QB --- Say what you will about the New Orleans Defense and a regression year for Mr. Discount Double Check. Neither statements were relevant in Week 2. Even without D. Adams this week, Aaron will prove his worth once again.
Bust Alert....Todd Gurley RB
Todd Gurley's Fantasy stock has been on the decline over the last year and his first 2 week performances aren't helping owners feel any better about the future. He has only converted 1 of 3 attempts inside the 5, which makes matters worse for a TD dependent RB. He is only sporting a 3.3 ypc average and has only seen 2 targets so far. What once was, is no more! Make sure you use with caution. ..
