Fantasy vs. Reality: Round 3

Posted: Updated:

25. Maurice Jones-Drew

The Jaguars are a bad team, and it has been a bad four weeks for MJD owners. Jacksonville has scored two touchdowns as a team and MJD has one, but has only 138 yards. Jacksonville will not win a game all year and Jones-Drew will suffer.

26. Frank Gore

After not getting the ball, then openly complaining about it, Frank Gore's stats aren't actually that bad . He has 61 carries and 295 yards to go along with a pair of touchdowns. The 49ers have struggled out of the gate but Gore has scored in the two wins and is coming off his best fantasy day in years in week four.

27. Larry Fitzgerald

Fitz finally has a quarterback to throw him the ball and he is taking full advantage. Despite working through injury, he has three touchdowns and 21 catches for 245 yards. It is a drastic improvement from 2012 where he had only four touchdowns the entire season.

28. David Wilson

When looking up the term hot mess in the dictionary, I came upon a picture of David Wilson. His fumbling issues have continued and the Giants are flat no good. Wilson has rushed for 19, 17, 39 and 55 yards while not finding the endzone. He is one of the most over ranked players taken in the first three rounds.

29. Andre Johnson

Johnson has averaged just under 12 targets per game in the first four weeks and is on target for a monster season when it comes to receptions. There is one flaw with Johnson's game and it has been the case the past two seasons. He doesn't score. His 34 catches is tied for the NFL league, but he has yet to find the end zone.

30. Reggie Bush

Through four weeks, the biggest draft day steal is Reggie Bush. Putting into perspective that he has played in only 3 games and he has missed time due to injury which is something that has plagued him throughout his career. That said, he has 433 combo yards and has scored on the ground and through the air.

31. Tom Brady

It has been rare to see Tom Brady's name at the bottom of the top 20 list. With his usual compliment of receiving targets traded, in jail or injured, Brady has had to cultivate a group of kids. The team is 4-0, but Brady's stats are anything Brady like. With Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski on the horizon, it'll be like old times in New England.

32. Roddy White

One word describes Roddy's season to date. Ouch. A nagging ankle sprain has left White hobbled. Just 10 receptions and 84 yards have left his owners scratching their heads wondering when he would return to form. The answer should come in the next two weeks as he was targeted a season high nine times in week four.

33. Randall Cobb

The Packers had their bye week early, but Randall Cobb has numbers rivaling peers who have played four games. He has two touchdowns and 290 yards and with the Packers vaunted passing offense, he'll pick up right where he left off this week.

34. DeMarco Murray

Murray has produced top 10 numbers through four weeks and he has done it on the ground and in the air. He already has 21 catches and 356 yards on the ground more than half of his total a season ago. As always injury concerns are always the question with Murray, but so far he's a third round steal.

35. Victor Cruz

The Giants might be a mess, but Victor Cruz is the top scoring receiver in fantasy football not named Jimmy Graham through four weeks. His 425 yards is third in the league and four touchdowns is third best.

36. Cam Newton

Owners drafted Newton here because of his dual threatness which up until this point has been non-existent. He has scored just one touchdown through three games compared to last year scoring a rushing touchdown every other game. His average rushing yards per game have gone from 48 last year to 32 through three games. More shockingly, his passing yards have dropped to a career low 192 yards per game.
