Week 3 fantasy football preview with projections: Redskins at Rams

I have two numbers for you in this intro to the Redskins vs. Rams preview: 453.0 and 267.5.

I’m not going tell you what they mean, but I will tell you that it means good things for a couple of the key fantasy players in this Week 3 matchup.

Our projection model is not perfect. There are many improvements that could be made, but we have had relatively good accuracy with it this season despite the flaws. Translation: Use these at your own discretion but they should be pretty darn good.

Matchups

Here are the answers you seek: 453.0= Washington’s league-worst yards allowed per game. 267.5= The league’s second-worst offense, owned by the Rams.

Sam Bradford, it is your time.

It will also be a good time to be Mark Clayton, Danny Amendola and Laurent Robinson.The Redskins are very friendly to opposing wide receivers.

Washington? They’ll get their points, too. St. Louis has been a good matchup for opposing teams for quite a while, and the Redskins proved last week that they can put up the yards.
