Fantasy football: Players to be excited about, move on from after Week 3 – New York Post

The Post’s Drew Loftis evaluates all the relevant fantasy football news from Week 3 of the NFL season.

Run with it

Wayne Gallman RB, Giants

With Saquon Barkley out 4-6 weeks, fantasy owners will be scrambling to replace those points. You can’t. But Gallman likely will be available, and he’ll inherit the volume.

Ronald Jones RB, Buccaneers
Tampa Bay’s backfield use remains wildly unpredictable — with a virtual even split between RoJo and Peyton Barber on Sunday, after each dominated one of the first two games. Still expecting Jones to eventually win out here.

Jeff Wilson Jr. RB, 49ers

Three-headed committees are a fantasy nightmare. But Wilson is getting the goal-line work and the TDs (two Sunday). Makes Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert unreliable fantasy options.

Darrel Williams RB, Chiefs

Stepped into the Damien Williams role and did fine vs. a good Ravens defense. Low floor here, though, since LeSean McCoy will get goal-line work. Worth a cheap waiver grab in case Damien misses more time.

Run away

Phillip Lindsay RB, Broncos
Sunday was like a flashback to his impressive rookie season. But considering he is getting just 55 percent of carries between him and Royce Freeman, now is a good time, off a big game, to sell high.

Sony Michel RB, Patriots
Outside of a 5-yard TD, he had eight other carries for six yards. He is averaging just 2.4 yards per carry on the season. That kind of production will usher in more Rex Burkhead work.

Miles Sanders RB, Eagles
Mired in a backfield with Jordan Howard with about a 55-45 split, with Howard the goal-line guy. Sell Sanders based on rookie upside, if you can.

Carlos Hyde RB, Texans

There’s the Carlos Hyde we know. After surprising the first two weeks, Hyde turned in a 10-for-19 dud. See if a leaguemate will overpay for his volume.
