The best and the worst of fantasy football in NFL Week 3.
Justin Herbert, QB, LAC
405 passing yards, 3 passing TDs, 11 rushing yards, 29.3 points.
Set career-highs in both passing yards and completions with 40 against the Vikings.
De’Von Achane, RB, MIA
203 rushing yards, 30 receiving yards, 4 TDs, 49.3 points.
Became the third rookie ever to gain 200+ yards and score 4+ TDs on fewer than 25 touches.
Raheem Mostert, RB, MIA
82 rushing yards, 60 receiving yards, 4 TDs, 41.7 points.
Imagine putting up this sort of stat line and not being the top RB on your own team this week.
Keenan Allen, WR, LAC
215 receiving yards, 49 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 36.4 points.
Not only did he make an NFL season-high 18 receptions, he also threw for a touchdown.
Tyreek Hill, WR, MIA
157 receiving yards, 1 TD, 26.2 points.
Even without Jaylen Waddle to draw some attention, Hill had no problem getting open for big gains.
Sam LaPorta, TE, DET
84 receiving yards, 1 TD, 18.4 points.
The Lions rookie is arguably off to one of the best career starts for a tight end ever.
Buffalo Bills DEF
3 points allowed, 9 sacks, 4 INTs, 1 fumble recovery, 1 TD, 32 points.
Just a dominant effort against the Commanders in a weather-struck game.
Matt Gay, K, IND
5 FGs, 1 PAT, 24 points.

Sam Howell, QB, WAS
170 passing yards, 4 INTs, 18 rushing yards, 4.6 points.
While the weather certainly didn’t help, Howell gifted four picks to the Bills and only rushed once.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, TEN
104 passing yards, 4.1 points.
Completed just 13 passes against a Browns defence that is looking quite legit.
Derrick Henry, RB, TEN
20 rushing yards, 2 points.
The previous team to hold Henry to 20 or fewer rushing yards: The Browns back in Oct. 2017.
Joshua Kelley, RB, LAC
12 rushing yards, 5 receiving yards, 2.2 points.
That’s two weeks in a row that he has been featured with Austin Ekeler out and two disappointments.
A.J. Dillon, RB, GB
33 rushing yards, 3.3 points.
Take away his longest rush of 14 yards and Dillon ran for just 19 yards on 10 carries.
Josh Reynolds, WR, DET
0 receptions, 0 points.
Was questionable coming into the game, but then didn’t get a single target against Atlanta.
Darnell Mooney, WR, CHI
0 receptions, 0 points.
Had just a single target, which he didn’t catch, in the Bears blowout loss to the Chiefs.
Jacksonville Jaguars DEF
31 points allowed, -1 fantasy point.
A home game against the Texans should have been a sure setup for success.

I HOPE YOU STARTED
Houston may have picked second and third overall in the draft this year, but it’s a third-rounder that is turning heads. Tank Dell racked up 145 receiving yards against the Jags and scored a TD for the second straight week. We hope you grabbed him on waivers last week because his price is going up fast.
While Romeo Doubs caught just five of his 12 targets, he was still able to rack up 73 yards and a TD against the Saints. That touchdown was huge, too, completing the comeback victory for the Packers.
