 Eli has been unspectacular even against two lousy defenses. Odell Beckham just hasn't seemed quite like himself and should be covered the majority of the game by shutdown corner, Josh Norman, so don't be surprised to see Manning's struggles continue in Week 3.
Chet Gresham

Luck at home in the dome is always a nice spot. He put up huge numbers on Detroit at home and then had to go to Denver, which went as well as you would expect. Now he's at home against the Chargers who have given up 346 passing yards and two passing touchdowns per game to Alex Smith and Blake Bortles. Manning was a big letdown last week despite throwing for over 300 yards because he didn't throw a single touchdown. He'll face Washington's secondary led by Josh Norman, who were pummeled by the Steelers, but did hold Dak Prescott from throwing a touchdown last week. I expect their pass defense to get better, but Manning has the offensive weapons to put up good numbers on about anyone.

Luck looks to bounce back against the Chargers in Week 3. He has produced the fourth highest (0.48) fantasy points per drop back through two games. We view Luck as an elite QB1 in Week 3.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Chargers have given up a ton of fantasy points to quarterbacks the first two weeks, Luck should be a great play this week at home. Eli was underwhelming against the Saints, but he should still be on the QB2 radar this week.
