Fantasy Rankings After Week 3

Here are the Top 5 players at their position:

Quarterback

  • Tom Brady
  • Tony Romo
  • Carson Palmer
  • Jake Delhomme
  • Derek Anderson

As the season progresses I'm sure we will see Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb on this list. Derek Anderson scored more than half of his points in week 2.

Running Backs

  • Brian Westbrook
  • LaMont Jordan
  • Marion Barber
  • Ronnie Brown
  • Joseph Addai

Not the usual suspects on the top 5. I called that Lamont Jordan could be a quality pick in the later rounds and that has proved true. Marion Barber is still spliting carries with Jones, but Barber is running twice as good as him, plus he gets the goal line carries.

Wide Receivers

  • Randy Moss
  • Chad Johnson
  • Plaxico Burress
  • Steve Smith
  • Terrell Owens

After the stuggle last season, the Giants offense has turned around with Eli Manning stepping up. I don't know if he didn't throw to Burress enough last year, but he's getting the ball to him now.

Tight Ends

  • Antonio Gates
  • Jason Witten
  • Kellen Winslow
  • Dallas Clark
  • Benjamin Watson

I was big on Jason Witten for the draft after I saw Tony Romo constantly hit his tight end in preaseason. The usual TE's are on the list with Heap and Crumpler right behind the 5.

Defense

  • Vikings
  • Steelers
  • Texans
  • Patriots
  • Bears

Obviously the Texans are a huge surprise here. As well as the Vikings being #1 so far. They had big weeks against Atlanta and Detriot in week 1 and 2.

These top 5 should be the highest in most standard leagues. Some players won't continue to be hot, it might be time to move them for players who are struggling, but have the talent to do better. I just acquired Steven Jackson myself which would of been a perfect trade if he didn't get injured already.
