Fantasy Football Week 3: Start Keelan Cole, Sit Desean Jackson?

Ryan Mayer

Alright, we're two weeks into the NFL and fantasy football seasons. We've begun to learn which teams/players we can trust and which we should probably stay away from on a weekly basis (looking at you Bills and Cardinals). Aside from those two teams however, questions remain. Can the Fitzpatrick to Jackson connection stay hot? Will the Raiders finally start using Amari Cooper? What does the return of Carson Wentz mean for the Eagles offense?

Well, as usual, we've dialed up the good folks at to give their thoughts on who you should start and who you should sit. The process is simple, we'll give you a guy at each of the premium positions (QB, RB, WR, TE) that you should put in the lineup if you haven't already. And we'll also tell you which guys you want to get out of the lineup prior to Sunday's kick off. Without further ado, here's the list for Week 3's matchups.

As always, for more fantasy football advice, check out the guys over at's fantasy football section or on CBS Sports HQ. To hear the guys' reasoning for their picks, check out the video above.
