2023 Fantasy Football Preseason Stock – Week 3




Rams at Broncos

Marvin Mims, WR, Broncos
Marvin Mims had a golden opportunity to showcase his talent in the wake of Jerry Jeudy’s injury in the preseason finale. Mims was inches shy of scoring a touchdown on the opening drive, and he followed that up by blazing past the Rams defense for what appeared to be a 75-yard touchdown. Replay review showed Mims was down by contact, but he was still able to register a 50-yard reception. Mims’ two catches went for 51 yards. He’s someone to consider late in fantasy drafts.

Dolphins at Jaguars

Calvin Ridley, WR, Jaguars
Calvin Ridley had a strong performance in his final preseason game. He caught all three of his targets for 60 yards. One reception was a great diving catch. Another one was a tremendous leaping grab where Ridley was initially ruled out of bounds before replay review showed that he somehow landed in the field of play. Reports indicated that Ridley was geared up to play football after so much time off, and that certainly appears to be the case.

Ravens at Buccaneers

Chris Godwin, WR, Buccaneers
It seems as though Chris Godwin is Baker Mayfield’s favorite target. It’s a small sample size, but Godwin saw four targets in two drives from Mayfield in the preseason finale. Godwin made the most of his opportunity, catching all four passes for 30 yards and a touchdown.

Browns at Chiefs

Deshaun Watson, QB, Browns
Deshaun Watson, as a whole, was not very impressive in the preseason finale. In fact, it looked like there was something wrong with Watson. He looked off, as he was hesitant to pass at times, almost as if he weren’t seeing the field properly. I expected this from Watson late last year, but I thought he would be better after a full offseason of getting re-adjusted into the NFL. Watson looked shaky instead, completing half of his passes against Kansas City’s backups. Watson finished 5-of-10 for 92 yards and a touchdown. He made one great play where he scrambled left and found Amari Cooper wide open downfield for a 53-yard reception, but this was a disappointing output from Watson overall.

Seahawks at Packers

Malik Heath, WR, Packers
The Packer announcers spent lots of time talking up Malik Heath, who has apparently enjoyed a great training camp. Jordan Love was locked in on Heath during the preseason finale, targeting him more times (5) than any other Green Bay receiver. Heath ended up with four receptions for 35 yards.

Lions at Panthers

Adam Thielen, WR, Panthers
Adam Thielen caught four of his five targets for 48 yards and a touchdown against the Lions. Before you get too excited about Thielen, it’s fair to question his ability to get open against starting defensive backs. However, it’s clear that he and Bryce Young have a strong connection that can’t be ignored.

Steelers at Falcons

Kenny Pickett, QB, Steelers
Kenny Pickett looks like a completely different quarterback now that he’s in his second year and is protected by an improved offensive line. Pickett launched two perfect deep throws in this game: one to Diontae Johnson for 33 yards, and the other to George Pickens for a 35-yard reception. Both throws were drops in the bucket, and Pickens was even covered well by the opposing cornerback. Pickett finished a perfect 4-of-4 for 86 yards.
