Fantasy Football: Don't count on Darren McFadden

Here are three players worth starting/sitting as we enter Week 3:

-- Vincent Jackson (WR, Bucs) He has been an unstoppable force through two weeks despite the chaos and inconsistency surrounding him in Tampa Bay.
-- Matt Stafford (QB, Lions) Stafford should be able to punish the putrid Redskins pass defense with a heavy dose of Megatron.
-- Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, Falcons) With Steven Jackson out, he has a chance to demonstrate the talent he showed during last year’s playoff run.

-- Darren McFadden (RB, Raiders) A matchup against the Broncos should bring McFadden back to earth after two solid weeks against weak defenses.
-- Jordan Cameron (TE, Browns) Josh Gordon returns to the lineup this week, which means Cameron will no longer be the Browns’ No. 1 receiving target.
-- Jay Cutler (QB, Bears) The Bears are unlikely to focus as much on the passing game against the Steelers this week.
