6 Fantasy Football Splits That Matter for Week 3
It's just as common for fantasy players to overanalyze matchups leading into Week 1 of the NFL season as it is to overanalyze the results that come from the action. It's overreaction Sunday! The name (albeit not a clever one) has stuck over the years for a reason.
But now with a couple of weeks worth of data under our belts, we can continue pointing out certain splits that matter on the gridiron while providing actionable info you can use to make fantasy football decisions this Sunday. And that's whether you're playing season-long or DFS.
You don't need me to make those obvious decisions for you. Le'Veon Bell squaring off against the Chicago Bears defense is a prime example. They've allowed an average 5.12 yards per carry in their last five games sans Jerrell Freeman (who was placed on injured reserve prior to Week 2) dating back to last season. Another is A.J. Green averaging 7 catches for 107 yards and 19.1 fantasy points in the six games Tyler Eifert's missed since 2016.
With this in mind, let's dive in and take a look at six other splits that matter for Week 3 action.
