Aaron Rodgers among stars set to disappoint

Editor’s note: The names listed below are NFL players who were drafted in virtually every Yahoo Fantasy league. That said, this column is not an endorsement to bench them in Week 3. You’re in control of your roster; every league size and shape is different. What we are trying to explain is that expectations should be lowered this week compared to usual for some of football’s best. Aside from examining this week’s matchups, this can also serve as a reminder not to overreact if one of your stars disappoints in Week 3.

Aaron Rodgers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The back-to-back MVP winner has lost fantasy value through no fault of his own. The return of Allen Lazard helps some, but this is still a limited Green Bay offense that functions through their running backs. Rodgers hasn’t been a top-25 fantasy QB after two games with his new receiving corps, even ranking behind Justin Fields, who’s attempted fewer passes than Cooper Kupp has been targeted!

Even with Akiem Hicks out for Tampa Bay, Rodgers has another bad matchup for fantasy purposes this week against an elite Bucs defense allowing the lowest EPA/pass (-0.45) in the league. Worse yet, the Buccaneers are decimated on offense (including Mike Evans out suspended) and have been playing a sluggish pace, so expect them to continue being run-heavy on first downs. Put differently, the over/under in this matchup opened at 48.5 points and has dropped down to 42, which is dramatic line movement without weather reasons. Don’t expect top-15 QB numbers from Rodgers during this defensive battle. Tua Tagovailoa, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz and Marcus Mariota are all superior fantasy options in Week 3.

Javonte Williams vs. San Francisco 49ers

Williams has looked great this season and is due for some better touchdown results at the goal line, but he has a few hurdles working against him Sunday night. The 49ers have ceded an NFL-low 2.6 YPC to open the year (hello there…
