First off, Carolina is playing Thursday night, which means there’s no Christian McCaffrey on the Week 3 Daily Fantasy Football slate. If you’re the type to force him into your lineups. DFS wait – and who can blame you? – this week could be a giveaway. There is often enough room to line a solid formation around McCaffrey, but it gets tough as his price moves up into the five-figure range. Even without CMC, there are a number of studs for our FanDuel tournament picks.

Before we get into the choices, we need to outline the basic rules of FanDuel contests. Everything is pretty standard, the only notable parameters being Four point pass TD and PPR half point.

FanDuel Picks Week 3: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Main Sunday roster, budget $ 60,000, no more than four players on a team

QB Justin Herbert, Chargers @ Chiefs ($ 7,500). This game opened with a total of 55.5 so we’re anticipating a shootout (we won’t be alone there). Herbert has the talent and the weapons to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes, however, and offers a huge advantage at a reasonable price.

RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings vs. Seahawks ($ 9,500). We will continue to return to the well with Cook as long as it is relatively affordable. He collected 42 rushes and 10 targets in two games and will continue to take advantage of opportunities. Enjoy the luxury of having it in your queues while you can. By the time he pulls off a multi-touchdown game, his price will jump. I just hope he can stay in one piece.

RB David Montgomery, Bears @ Browns ($ 6,900). Montgomery handled a fair amount of volume through two games. That shouldn’t change in Week 3. Something that might change, however, is the quarterback he receives transfers and targets from. If quarterback Justin Fields starts for Andy Dalton (knee), the Bears offense will get a shot of adrenaline – at least in theory.

WR Chase Claypool, Steelers vs. Bengals ($ 5,800). Aerial yards may not be everything, but they can often be an indicator of good things to come. Claypool leads the Steelers in that department and could also be in line for more targets if Diontae Johnson (knee) is limited on Sunday. Claypool was more efficient as a rookie than he was for two weeks in 2021, so it’s reasonable to expect improvement on that front.

WR Mike Williams, Chargers @ Chiefs ($ 6,000). The Chargers ultimately decided to use their 6-4, 220-pound first round. Williams leads the team in targets (22) – yes, even ahead of Keenan Allen – and has scored a touchdown in each of his first two games. Williams enjoyed the meetings with the Chiefs. He delivered performances of 19.8 and 33.0 points against his division foe.

WR AJ Brown, Titans vs. Colts ($ 6,800). There are times when you throw the numbers away and bet on talent, especially when it’s at a low price. A 7-92-1 line was meant to be a light day at the office for Brown, not his two-game season stats. However, he’s eclipsed 20 FanDuel points 10 times in 32 career games, so it’s only a matter of time before he sees a blowout. Remember, even though they have a lot of the same pieces in place, the Titans are getting used to a new offensive coordinator.

TE Darren Waller, Raiders vs Dolphins ($ 7,400). Waller relinquished the lead role last week, but we don’t expect that to be the case very often. While the emergence of Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards will allow the Raiders to take what defenses give them more frequently, this passing game still revolves around Waller. After all, he’s only one game away from an impressive 19 targets.

FLEX (RB) Antonio Gibson, Washington @ Bills ($ 6,000). If you’re not ready to bet on Saquon Barkley ($ 6,100), a player we’ve highly regarded here, then Gibson will be a bulky player all season long. He’s just stepped out of a game that was frustrating for fantasy owners, as they watched JD McKissic meander a touchdown and succeed in the passing game. Gibson, however, as we have seen, has a 20-30 point hike against anyone and is attractively priced.

DEF Denver Broncos @ Jaguars ($ 4,600). The Dolphins will start either substitute Jacoby Brissett or a smashed Tua Tagovailoa. Either way, those odds favor a defensive Raiders unit that has been a thorn in the side of the Ravens and Steelers in consecutive weeks. Not to mention, the Miami quarterback reshuffle won’t help them find an offensive rhythm under the guidance of their new co-offensive coordinators.
