2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 3 Defense & Kickers


Note – This post was published after the Patriots thrashing of the Texans. Those defenses have accordingly not been ranked.


Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorers


1. Arizona Cardinals @ BUF – With Watkins set to miss this game, the Cards should feast on this offense in transition to a new OC.

2.  Seattle Seahawks vs. SF

3. Denver Broncos @ CIN

4. Carolina Panthers vs. MIN

5. Miami Dolphins vs Cle


Tier 2 – Highly Startable Defenses


Hopefully you got in on the Dolphins D, as the matchups aren’t great this week. 


6. Cincinnati Bengals vs. DEN

7. Pittsburgh Steelers @ PHI

8. Dallas Cowboys vs. CHI – Facing a backup quarterback and an offense that has struggled all year, this weak D is actually worth a plug n play at home. A pick-six is definitely plausible.

9. New York Jets @ KC

10. Kansas City Chiefs vs. NYJ

11. Oakland Raiders @ TEN

12. New York Giants vs. WAS

13. Los Angeles Rams @ TB
