Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 Rankings
Joe Mixon photo 50. Joe Mixon RB - (at BUF)
Mixon entered Week 2 banged up with a sprained ankle, so perhaps he deserves a bit of a pass for his anemic stat line against the 49ers. Still, the Bengals may continue to rotate Gio Bernard in fairly frequently to protect Mixon's health, at least in the short term. Bernard certainly appears to be the team's passing down back at the moment, which could be an issue for Mixon's playing time as six-point underdogs at Buffalo. He should be approached as a risky, low-end RB2.

Tyler Boyd photo 54. Tyler Boyd WR - (at BUF)
Boyd has seen double digit targets in each of the first two weeks, and while he's yet to find the end zone, that isn't a cause for concern. What is a concern, though, is Boyd's matchup. A trip to Buffalo is usually terrible news for opposing passing games, so Boyd should be approached as a low-end WR2 despite his projected volume and the overall improvement of Cincinnati's offense under Zac Taylor.

John Ross photo 76. John Ross WR - (at BUF)
Ross enters Week 3 as the highest-scoring WR in standard fantasy leagues, thanks to his immense speed and big play ability. That could lead to some big weeks and some quiet ones, and he'll face one of his more challenging matchups of the season this week at Buffalo. He's a classic boom-or-bust WR3/flex option. If you start him, you're hoping he can break a long one.

Eifert has not been putting up impressive yardage totals in the first two games of new coach Zac Taylor's offensive scheme, but he is still a factor in the red zone. Consider him a touchdown-dependent TE2 at Buffalo.
