Week 3 of the 2021-22 NFL season is here! After a Thursday Night Football matchup that featured big performances from D.J. Moore and Sam Darnold, a packed Sunday slate awaits. With that in mind, it’s time to take a look at one of our most important season tools: the start/sit tool.
Whether your fantasy squad is 2-0 or looking to rebound from a loss, our 2021 NFL Season Tools have plenty to offer. Aimed at giving you the knowledge you need to stay a step ahead of your league-mates all season long — from projections, weekly rankings, league sync, top waiver recommendations and positional reports, to exclusive expert columns — this year’s edition is the finest we’ve ever produced.
We last looked at our League Sync tool, a unique feature that evaluates your fantasy team within the context of your own Yahoo! league. With our start/sit tool, users are able to compare rest-of-season and weekly projections for players of their choice, helping them make more informed decisions about who to plug into lineups. Additionally, you can compare player game logs and season stats while seeing the latest relevant news. Today’s preview features Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams and Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton, both of whom are coming off strong Week 2 outings. Given both player’s favorable Week 3 matchups (Williams vs. Chiefs, Sutton vs. Jets), we compared their outlooks using the start/sit tool.
Have a look:
Week 3 Start/Sit Tool Projections
WR Mike Williams | LAC | @ KC
Proj. Targets: 4.85
Proj. Receptions: 2.81
Proj. Receiving Yards: 45.62
Proj. Fantasy Points: 5.8
WR Courtland Sutton | DEN | vs. NYJ
Proj. Targets: 7.51
Proj. Receptions: 4.36
Proj. Receiving Yards: 63.87
Proj. Fantasy Points: 8.5
As Denver’s top receiving option following Jerry Jeudy‘s injury, our start/sit tool projects Sutton to see higher volume and more receiving yards against a forgiving Jets defense. While Williams could certainly finish with solid numbers in Week 3, our projections likely reflect the close eye Kansas City’s defense will keep on him after his strong start to the year. In any case, both wideouts profile as worthy start candidates for your Week 3 lineup.
