Welcome to Week 3 of The Worksheet, a fantasy football overview, by Rich Hribar.

We now have multiple weeks in the books and hopefully everyone is 2-0 entering Week 3. Even while adding a week to the sample of the season, grains of salt still need to be applied when taking an evidence-based approach this early in the year. For the most part, early on we are focusing on initial usage notes to grasp onto moving forward.  If you’ve been following this post for the past few seasons, tangible information builds up and this post expands with information.

Game, Total and Props

As the author, it’s imperative that I note that this is an expectations-based column over a linear start/sit forum. The labels for each subset of players for each game is simply the vehicle for those expectations and have a different context for each player. 

This article will be updated throughout the week to reflect major news or injury implications. I encourage that you use the game by game tables and data points here in conjunction with the player rankings that will be available every week this season on Thursdays and enjoy the games.
