Matthew Stafford A Risky Option In Week 3

Saturday, September 23, 8:50 PM

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has a much easier matchup this week than he did in the team's Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Stafford has thrown for over 300 yards in each of the first two games this season. Despite the extreme passing volume, the 35-year-old has averaged just over 14 fantasy PPG and is the overall QB22 through two weeks. While the Rams' Week 3 matchup, Cincinnati Bengals, have given up more on the ground than through the air, they still have a very young and inexperienced secondary. Stafford is a low-end QB1 for Week 3 and is mainly an option in superflex leagues.
