After throwing for more than 300 yards and two scores against a Steelers defense that entered having allowed just one passing TD over two games, the legend of Carson Wentz continues to grow. He now sports a 5:0 TD:INT ratio on the season, and it’s clear his early success wasn’t just a product of an easy schedule. Wentz has lit the league on fire despite coming from an FCS school and missing most of the preseason with a rib injury. He’s gotten 7.5 YPA and became the first rookie in NFL history to throw more than 100 passes without an interception. He’s also capable of running even more than he’s shown (although it would help if he learned to avoid contact better). Wentz sure looks like a future star, and he’s fully capable of being a major fantasy asset right now as well. Just check out this play Sunday in which he improvised and found Darren Sproles for a 73-yard TD. He’s the real deal.

When Aaron Rodgers says relax, we relax. And the Packers might just be a fantasy carnival again — because of their offense and their defense.
Rodgers was just about perfect in Sunday’s 34-27 victory over the Lions, rolling up four first-half touchdown passes and a 129.3 rating for the day. The early efficiency cost him some fantasy stats — Green Bay was conservative in the second half, and Rodgers finished with just 24 pass attempts. But this was nonetheless the game his fantasy owners were looking for. Rodgers also broke Detroit’s back in the second half with a couple of well-timed scrambles.
Rodgers and Jordy Nelson are copacetic again, that much is clear. Nelson caught two of the TD passes, logging a 6-101-2 day on just seven targets. Nelson’s scored in every game this year, though his best foot showed in the Lambeau Field opener. Unfortunately for the fantasy chase, the other two touchdown passes went to the unstartable Richard Rodgers and Davante Adams. Meanwhile, Randall Cobb and Jared Cook combined for two catches on six targets.

If only Hue Jackson would have allowed Terrelle Pryor to handle kicking duties at Miami, things might have ended differently for the Browns. We’ll never know. Pryor did pretty much everything for Cleveland on Sunday. He spent time behind center as a rotational QB, completing three passes for 35 yards, plus he led his team in receiving, snagging eight balls for 144. Naturally, Pryor also ran the ball four times for 21 yards, delivering Cleveland’s only rushing score. Of course he did.
Pryor is the clear top option in his team’s receiving corps at the moment, with Corey Coleman injured and Josh Gordon suspended for another week. He’s also a wide receiver getting snaps at quarterback, which makes him an almost unfair fantasy weapon. He’s a priority add.

1. Welcome back to fantasy relevance, Jeremy Hill. After an unmemorable start to his season (20-53-1), Cincy’s caged kitty broke loose Sunday against, of all opponents, Von Miller and the Denver Broncos. Exhibiting a fiery hand out of the gate, he galloped his way to 97 rushing yards and two touchdowns, undeniably his finest performance of the season.
Hill, despite scoring double-digit touchdowns, was a massive disappointment last season. He was largely ineffective, unassertive and generally vanilla, a rusher completely outplayed by teammate Gio Bernard. Fantasy investors were bitter to say the least.
The third-year back entered the season determined to right last year’s wrongs. Throughout training camp and the preseason he resembled the intimidating, between-the-tackles battering ram of 2014. His admirable 2.4 YAC Weeks 1-2 offered additional encouragement. Sunday’s effort versus Denver confirmed the resurgence.Sun, 25 SepDenver29 - 17CincinnatiGame Recap

Matthew Stafford faces a test at Lambeau (AP) We’ve thrown darts for six years and giving you a winning season in five of those years. Let’s see how it goes this time along.
As always, we’ll be using the line from . We won’t use games if they move off the board. Share your picks in the comments, play along. Five weekly picks, that’s all we ask.
— Detroit +7.5: Fully expect Lions will move the ball at Green Bay, and I can’t trust Packers offense to spot this much lumber until they show something.
— Buffalo +4.5: Going ugly with a team no one wants to back right now. Sometimes it’s about holding your nose and taking an ugly home dog.
— Cincinnati -3: Let’s see what Trevor Siemian is ready to do in his first road start. Cincinnati still a very sound team A to Z.
— New Orleans -3: They’re obviously more fun at home and the Falcons defense can still be pushed around.
— Washington +4.5: I love taking underdogs in this division; no one is scared of anyone else’s home field.
— Arizona -4.5
— Denver +3
— Pittsburgh -3,5
— Dallas -7
— Green Bay -7.5
Last Week: 2-3
Last Year: 50-33
— Pittsburgh -3.5
— Miami -10
— Indianapolis -2.5
— Minnesota +7

There was a brief and welcome lull with the injury page, but things went a little haywire in the past week. Here’s your status check as we enter Week 3.
• Julio Jones has a sore ankle and calf and the Falcons are taking it easy with him; he’s yet to practice this week. Saturday is a key day for Jones, in advance of Monday’s juice game at New Orleans, though context clues point to him playing. Keep in mind the Saints are down both of their starting cornerbacks.
• Willie Snead (toe) is another key receiver who’s iffy for Monday, and like Jones, he’s yet to practice this week. We’ll see if he does anything Saturday. Michael Thomas is an interesting caddy stash if you have it available to you.
• The Jets consider Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) a game-time decision for Sunday’s late start at Kansas City. Marshall did some work at Friday’s practice after missing the two previous days. Marshall does have a history of pushing through aches and pains, so you get the idea he’ll give it a go. But be sure to have a contingency plan ready.
