In a week where a ton of players got hurt and messed with fantasy players lineups, we did not have any of the wounded as our picks in week two of Sit ’em Down. As a result, we went 1-2 to drop to 3-3 on the young season heading into fantasy football week three. So we aim to get back on track this week, and we will once again be using the Yahoo daily fantasy pricing system, in addition to our first look at DraftKings pricing this season. With that, we begin Sit ’em Down for week three:

QB- Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars at Baltimore Ravens (Yahoo price- $32, DraftKings price- $6500)

Bortles and the Jaguars in general were largely expected to take big steps forward this season and contend for the playoffs, but unfortunately the expectations have not led to results through two weeks. The winless Jaguars lost a close week one matchup to the Packers before getting blown out against the Chargers in a game that seemed to be theirs for the taking. Bortles himself hasn’t seemed to take any steps forward in his develop, even though he has thrown for over 300 yards in both games, he only has three touchdowns to go with three picks and a lost fumble. Now, he takes on a Ravens defense that held Tyrod Taylor to next to nothing in week one, and rebounded from a poor first quarter against the Browns to knock out Josh McCown, possibly for the next few weeks. And the game is in Baltimore. I don’t like Bortles chances this week, especially at those prices.

RB- LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills vs. Arizona Cardinals (Yahoo- $26, DraftKings- $6500)

McCoy might have put up double-digit fantasy totals in his first two games, but truthfully he hasn’t done that much this season. 117 rushing yards on 31 carries in two games in pretty sad coming from a guy who used to be a top five running back in this league and yea, he has eight receptions for 43 receiving yards, which does look nice in a PPR league, the fact in the former Shady McCoy looks like a mere shell of what he used to be. And now the Bills host the Cardinals, a team with arguably one of the top defenses in the league, and one that just dominated the Bucs and tossed Doug Martin around like a rag doll. Skip on McCoy this week, and possibly try to trade him if you have him in yearly leagues, if you can.

WR- AJ Green, Cincinnati Bengals vs. Denver Broncos (Y- $28, DK- $8100)

Hey, AJ Green is still one of the five best receivers in the league, without question. But after he only caught two passes on eight targets for 38 yards against a Steelers defense that isn’t exactly a dominant force, I have serious reservations about starting him against the Broncos. Yes, Denver’s secondary gave up a sweet stat line to Kelvin Benjamin in week one. And yes, it was Benjamin’s first game action in over a year, but the fact is they did rebound to shut down the Colts last week, and I feel like that is the defense we’re going to see in Cincy this week, which is bad news for Green and the Bengals. For this week, I would just pass on that huge price, especially in DraftKings.
