Fantasy Football: Week 3 Matchups To Exploit

Brett Favre, Jets vs Chargers:
The Jets offensive gameplan in the first two weeks has been mostly conservative, not allowing Favre the opportunity to air it out.  Look for that to change this week against a Chargers pass defense which has been exposed so far.  The Jets may not win, but there will be a lot of points scored and passes thrown.

J.T. O'Sullivan, 49ers vs. Lions: The first sign of life from the 49ers offense was seen last week, as O'Sullivan engineered several long drives, passing for 321 yards for 1 TD and no picks.  Expect him to attack the ridiculously soft Lions pass defense, which has been scorched the first two weeks.

Julius Jones, Seahawks vs. Rams:
In his first week as the primary ball carrier, Jones rolled for 127 yards on 26 carries.  The Seahawks will continue to focus on the run against a Rams defense that is yielding almost 5 yards per rush through the first two weeks. 

Michael Turner, Falcons vs. Chiefs: After a torrid first week piling up 220 yards rushing, Turner came back down to earth last week totaling just 42 yards on the ground against a tough Tampa defense.  ?He should have a game closer to his week one results, as he's facing a Chiefs defense which was lit up by the Raiders running backs for 300 rushing yards last week.

Steve Smith, Panthers vs. Vikings:
Expect a fresh Smith to make a big impact immediately, now that he's done with his two game suspension.  Smith had a 7 catch, 118 yard effort in his opener last season and he'll be facing a vulnerable Vikings pass defense which ranked last in the NFL in passing yards allowed in 2007.
