Can Week Three's stars keep it going?

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

The focus of this post should be Ronnie Brown. After all, Brown combined for just 17 carries for 48 yards and one touchdown in Miami's first two games. Then Brown exploded last week, averaging 6.6 yards per carry, rushing for four touchdowns and throwing another. But Miami has a bye week now. We'll have to wait to see Brown again until October 5 in San Diego.

Here is a look at next week's matchups for some of Week Three's other stars.

Michael Turner
Week Four: at Carolina

Turner has been fantasy football's biggest surprise this year. In my top league, he's the only reason I've been able to survive the Brady injury. Against Carolina next week, he could be ticketed for another big day. Carolina didn't allow Vikings' runners to find the end zone last week, but both Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor posted good yards to carry averages. Don't expect another three touchdown game, but Turner should be able to gain yards against the Panthers.

Brandon Marshall
Week Four: at Kansas City

Marshall has been a beast since returning from his one game suspension. He may be the most productive receiver in the NFL right now. Week Three should be another huge game for the high octane Broncos offense- which, get this, has scored as many points through three games as last year's Patriots. Anything less than 100 yards and a touchdown would be considered a disappointment for Marshall.

TJ Houshmandzadeh
Week Four: Cleveland

The Browns defense has been respectable this year against the pass. They practically shut down Joe Flacco last week (not that impressive), and faired well against Ben Roethlisberger the week before (more impressive). Factor in that last week was Cincinnati's first impressive passing game of the year, and I don't think Housh is in for another big game. Start him if you need to, but it's not a slam dunk.
