We’re three weeks into the 2020 NFL season, and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has easily been the most dominant passer in the league so far. He and a few other quarterbacks have established themselves as elite fantasy options. Let’s go over some of the top options and a few fades.

Quarterback Starts

Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks vs. Miami Dolphins

Wilson is essentially unstoppable this year. He’s thrown for at least four scores in every game this season and has scored more fantasy points than any player in the NFL. The MVP frontrunner will be up against a Dolphins defense that could be without their best cornerback. Wilson could get to air it out even more in Week 4 while Chris Carson is sidelined with a knee sprain.

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Packers have the league’s most explosive offense through three weeks and will be up against the Falcons, who have given up more points than any other team in the NFL. Davante Adams is on the mend and could return after missing Week 3 with a hamstring injury, and Allen Lazard exploded for 146 receiving yards against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Quarterback Sits

Philip Rivers, Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears

Rivers is throwing the bell less and less with each passing week. While he’s just outside the top 10 in passing yards, he three passing touchdowns and three interceptions on the year. The Bears will be bringing plenty of pressure at Rivers, and his lack of a go-to guy will limit his upside.

Daniel Jones, New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Rams

The Giants didn’t score a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, and Jones was 17-of-32 passing for 179 yards. The second-year signal caller led his team in rushing yards with 49, and all New York’s running backs were rendered useless. The Rams have star in Aaron Donald on the defensive line and another in Jalen Ramsey manning the secondary, so Jones could have a tough time getting anything going again.
