NFL Week 3, Regular Season

Houston Texans DFS Spin

Deshaun Watson completed 25-of-36 passes for 275 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Houston's 33-16 Week 3 battering from the Ravens. Watson was afforded little time to make plays under center, ultimately taking four sacks, and didn't have Will Fuller (undisclosed) for a majority of play even when he did find time to breathe. The only two threatening possessions for the Texans ended with a fumble from Keke Coutee and a diving interception from Ravens stud CB Marcus Peters. There were already few playmakers on the team, but an extended absence for Fuller would be catastrophic for Houston's anemic offense and, in particular, Watson in the interim. He'll be ranked as a low-end QB1 against Pittsburgh's nightmarish secondary in Week 3.

Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

Ben Roethlisberger completed 29-of-41 passes for 311 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Steelers' 26-21 Week 1 win over the Broncos. The Steelers' receivers had their way with Denver's secondary, as rookie WR Chase Claypool got loose for a long second half touchdown from Roethlisberger. Big Ben now has five touchdown tosses in two weeks in his return from last year's elbow injury. He's a safe weekly floor play with a tremendous ceiling if the Steelers ever find themselves in negative game script. He should remain in lineups next week against Houston.

Saints vs. Raiders Betting Prediction

Deshaun Watson has posted the second-worst total QBR against the blitz this season, with no touchdowns and no interceptions in those situations. The Steelers have already blitzed 64% of the time this season, which is the most among any defense in the NFL. If Watson can’t figure out how to beat the blitz, it’ll be a long day for him and the Texans, who have already faced the defending Super Bowl champs in the Chiefs and the arguably the second-best team in the AFC, the Ravens, in their opening weeks. I don’t see how they avoid dropping to 0-3.

NFL WEEK 3 BETTING PREDICTION: PITTSBURGH STEELERS -4
