Quarterback Rankings & Streamers for Week 3 Fantasy Football

Russell Wilson is ready to cook. Full quarterback rankings and top streaming options for 2021 Week 3 fantasy football.

It was a pretty good week for my fantasy football quarterback rankings in Week 2. Accuracy-wise I was ahead of the Fantasy Pros expert average as I hit on Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield, Jared Goff and Jalen Hurts. I missed on Daniel Jones’ big TNF performance and Dak Prescott let me down after a big Week 1 but overall I’m very happy with my week. We keep it rolling into Week 3 and again look to build on what I’ve seen so far to give you my fantasy football quarterback rankings for this week.

I’ll continue to post my quarterback rankings for fantasy football each, and will break down the key teams you can look to start, top streamers, and my favorite value DFS play for the week ahead.

With some quarterback starters not decided this week, these rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any quarterback news drops to see how it is reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific quarterback rankings or starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.

Stream of the Week

Daniel Jones (QB11, 22% rostered) — An easy choice this week coming off one of his best days as the quarterback of the New York Giants. Daniel Jones has the easiest match up in the league this week as he faces an Atlanta Falcons defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks over the first two weeks (30.2 PPG). Jones has been a rushing demon as well, and through two weeks is second only to Lamar Jackson in fantasy rushing points by a quarterback with 11.1 PPG. At just 22% rostered, Jones is available in the majority of leagues and should be worth a spot start in leagues, especially if your team has got off to a bad start.

Alternative streamer – Teddy Bridgewater vs New York Jets (24% rostered)

DFS Play of the Week

Russell Wilson (QB4, $7,600) — Wilson has been on fire through the first two weeks of the season, currently ranking as the QB6 in fantasy. Facing a Minnesota Vikings defense that has allowed the fourth-most points to quarterbacks through two weeks, Russ should continue to cook. The connection with Tyler Lockett has been as strong as ever and though we’ve not seen the big game from D.K. Metcalf so far, this could be the week where he goes and a stack with either of them could be money (literally) for you this week.

Alternative DFS play – Daniel Jones vs Atlanta Falcons ($5,800)
