Week three of the NFl season was filled with many surprises including good and bad performances and injuries.

Odell Beckham, Jr., has had a rough first two weeks but stepped into his starring role in week three. Odell scored 28.9 points in the Giants loss to the Eagles. According to ESPN , “Beckham’s 28.9 PPR fantasy points were third most among wide receivers through the Sunday 1 p.m. ET game block, and they gave him 947.6 in the first 45 games of his NFL career. That’s a record by a significant margin, as Randy Moss’ 861.9 rank second.” Due to Odell’s previous trends, expect large numbers in future weeks.

Another player who dominated last weekend was Todd Gurley. Todd Gurley rushed for over 100 yards and scored two touchdowns; all of these numbers led to 37.9 fantasy points. As far as underperforming goes, it is harder to do worse than Travis Kelce. Kelce, who starts in 99.0 percent of teams he is on, only scored 1.1 fantasy points. This is the second worst performance of Kelce’s career. Another big loser was the Baltimore Ravens defense. The Ravens played the Jaguars, who were considered an underdog, and lost by 37. The Ravens defense scored -6 points in week three.

After week three, here are some of the injured players fantasy players should know about. Greg Olsen fractured his foot in week two of the NFL season. According to the head athletic trainer for the Carolina Panthers, Ryan Vermillion, “He had a screw inserted to repair the fracture.” This means that Olsen will be expected to miss 6-8 weeks of the season. Another injury to keep an eye on is Andrew Luck. Luck has missed the first three weeks of the season and will miss week four as well. The Colts are hopeful Luck will return to practice within the next week and is expected to play in week five.

To understand how injuries are affecting people’s team a Summit High School student named Ian Connors was asked how injuries affected his team. Ian explained, “Jordan Reed was going to be my starting tight end but didn’t play so I started Martellus Bennett and he only scored 4 points.”

One tip to help any fantasy team have better success is to look at stats more in depth. The best stat to look at is a player’s snap count. Snap count is important because it determines the amount that each player is on the field. The higher a player’s snap count the more opportunity that player has to score points. Using snap counts to pick who starts in your lineup is an easy way to get more fantasy points.
