Week 3 Half PPR Rankings

his role can evaporate quickly in a negative gamescript. The Redskins are underdogs once again this week, though it's tough to see the Bears running away with this game considering how bad their offense has looked. It's going to be tough for Peterson this week, though. The Redskins running backs have combined to total 52-of-60 yards after contact. On 26 carries, their offensive line has produced exactly eight yards before contact. Meanwhile, the Bears defense allowed the second-fewest points on the ground to running backs last year. Throughout the entire season, they allowed just 133.6 fantasy points on the ground, or 8.35 points per game. That's ridiculous. Knowing Peterson has caught just 22 passes over his 17 games with the Redskins, you can't get much there. He's a touchdown-or-bust low-end RB3 for this game.

With Peterson likely to struggle finding room to run against Chicago, Thompson should be relied on heavily as a change of pace out of the backfield in this one, though most of his value will come from his receptions in PPR leagues.
