[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Week 3 presents plenty of conference games which will even out the preseason statistics quite a bit. Primarily, small conference players played their toughest opponents of the season, while the major conference schools played their easiest…also resulting in players resting by halftime.

Over the next few weeks, players will have multiple games under their belt and ppg averages will have reached statistical significance worth trusting.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Lineups should be set to provide your team with the best odds at beating your opponent. We use Vegas odds to help guide the lineup with the Spread and Over/Under metrics.

Spread = The amount of points one team is favored over another. A negative number (-25) means a team is favored by 25 points. A positive number means a team is projected to lose by 25.

O/U = The Over/Under is the amount of combined points for both teams in a game.

It’s unbelievable how accurate Vegas can be on these numbers. They aren’t perfect for setting a fantasy lineup, but they do provide some valuable insight. For example, the Washington @ Rutgers game has an Over/Under of 52 points with Washington favored by 30.5. You can gauge that the score will be somewhere close to 41-11, giving Washington 5 or 6 touchdowns.

NOTE: These rankings are completed early in the week and do not reflect pending injuries that should be monitored until game time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
