Week 3 RB Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • September 20, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Carlos Hyde $6,300

Browns starting RB Carlos Hyde has been solid so far this season, posting fantasy finishes of RB21 and RB22 as Cleveland has been surprisingly competitive. This week, they host the Jets and are home favorites, a role that typically greatly benefits the RB position. While Hyde is just 23rd on the year in fantasy points, he has 38 carries through two games. Only Todd Gurley and James Conner have more. Hyde should see plenty of volume in Week Three.  – Ryan McDowell

Corey Clement $3,900

An offseason target of mine in both dynasty and redraft Corey Clement just might have as clear a path to touches as ever before in his NFL career. His previous high in a game was Week 9 last year, 13 total touches 66 total yards three touchdowns. Last week with Ajayi out for parts of 2 quarters he received 11 touches 88 total yards and a touchdown. As of this writing, Ajayi is likely not going to play on Sunday. Proving he can handle three-down work with pass catching skills he faces off against a Colts defense that gave up 13 receptions for 92 yards to Chris Thompson and three more for 30 yards to AP in week 2. Clement will be entrenched in my lineups whether Ajayi plays or not. – Sal Leto

Latavius Murray $5,300

Dalvin Cook’s hamstring injury looks to be nothing more than a cramp, but there should be no need to overexert him on Sunday. Buffalo is flat awful, the type of bad which once was only trademarked by the band Hinder. Most importantly, the Bills inability to be competitive has led to teams racking up 60 rushing attempts against them in two weeks, sixth most in the league. While they have held up fairly well given the volume, it is the volume which leads us to Murray. Even with Cook siphoning his usual 15-18 carries, there should be plenty leftover for Murray as the Vikings milk the clock in the second half. Murray is a good bet for a touchdown and enough of a workload to make for a quality flex play. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Matt Breida $6,600

The league’s leading rusher, 49ers second-year RB Matt Breida, might be in for a let down after his big Week Two game. It appears to be a good spot as the 49ers face the Chiefs, who have already allowed three top 12 running back performances, but those RBs- Melvin Gordon, Austin Ekeler and James Conner did much of their damage as pass-catchers out of the backfield and Breida has just four receptions through two games. When the Chiefs expected to take an early and sizable lead, fantasy players chasing last week’s points might be very disappointed. – Ryan McDowell

Colts RBs

Talk about a landmine. This three-headed concoction, because monster would be to much credit, should be avoided at all costs this week. Maybe one falls in the end zone but which one? I’m not willing to take that dart throw. Not against the Eagles who held opposing running backs to under 60 rush yards a game last season and are off to a better start of only 45 a game through two weeks. After watching them combine for 5 receptions and 3 receiving yards against Washington last week I doubt they will be bailed out with pass catching ability. Wentz will be back and the Eagles pass offense will start to take shape, the Colts will need the arm of Andrew Luck to keep pace in this one. – Sal Leto

Kareem Hunt $7,800

It seems everyone is enjoying the fantasy bonanza in Kansas City, though there is reason to be concerned about Kareem Hunt. He’s received a single target in each of Kansas City’s first two games, with the Chiefs trio of explosive pass catchers doing the heavy lifting in the passing game. This severely limits his upside, especially given Andy Reid is unlikely to tinker with a formula which has made Kansas City the league’s most explosive offense. Throw in a matchup with a stout San Francisco front which ranks 9th in Football Outsiders’ DVOA rankings for rush defense, and it could be another week of Hunt being an ancillary piece. It is enough of a reason to downgrade Hunt this week and have concerns about his status in season-long leagues.. – Rob Willette
