You want big names? Well, we’ve got them in our Fantasy Football Week 3 Sit ‘Ems. It’s not that we’re out to get these guys but so many premier players have bad matchups this week. Take a look at Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, for example. Vick has seven turnovers and four touchdowns in his first two games. He is considered an elite fantasy quarterback but at what point do you bench him? Vick’s potential is enough but at some point you must be honest with yourself and admit he’s playing poorly.
Vick is one of many players to grace this week’s list but he is far from the only big name. Three of the four running backs themselves were considered first-round fantasy picks heading into the season. So be sure to check out the rest of our Fantasy Football Week 3 Sit ‘Ems.
TEAM DEFENSE - SIT ‘EM
Denver Broncos D/ST vs. Houston
We’re going to find out just how good the Houston Texans are this week when they face the Broncos. The Texans have one of the most balanced offenses in the league between quarterback Matt Schaub, wide receiver Andre Johnson and running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate. They rank in the top 10 in rushing yards, total yards and points per game. The Texans would likely have even better numbers if head coach Gary Kubiak didn’t grind out every game after getting a lead. Regardless, this is not a good week to start the Broncos defense. Though the Broncos are good on defense, they won’t be able to contain this balanced Houston offense.

San Diego Chargers D/ST vs. Atlanta
Although Turner has been a disappointment for the Falcons overall Atlanta is playing some very good football on offense. The Falcons rank third in points per game, and there might not be a better quarterback after two games than Ryan. Ryan’s got five touchdowns, no turnovers, has taken just two sacks and he’s completing 70.1 percent of his passes. Between receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones, as well as tight end Tony Gonzalez, the Falcons are so balanced and efficient in the passing game that the Chargers will find it hard to stop them. San Diego’s strong defensive statistics thus far are a bit misleading considering they’ve played against two offense - the Raiders and Titans - that are inexperienced and make mistakes. Atlanta won’t make those mistakes this weekend so avoid playing the Chargers defense and special teams unit.
