With two weeks of the NFL season already in the rear-view mirror, in-season trends are starting to form — and data is becoming more actionable. It might be tough to bench some of the guys you drafted in the earlier rounds, but sometimes it has to happen.

So, let's get to it: Here is the Week 3 edition of fantasy football start ’em or sit ’em.
QB DANIEL JONES, NEW YORK GIANTS VS. ATLANTA FALCONS
Don’t look now, but Daniel Jones is a top-five fantasy quarterback after two weeks and just rolled out a 29.46 point performance against the stout Washington defense last Thursday night.
Hard to believe, but Daniel Jones has more Fantasy points through two games than Josh Allen, Aaron Rodgers, Dak Prescott and Matthew Stafford and the same amount as Lamar Jackson.

What a wild fantasy world we live in.
The thing is, Jones hasn’t even faced an “easy” defense yet. His first two matchups to begin the season were the Broncos and Washington. In Week 3, he gets the porous Falcons defense at home.
The Falcons lost both of their first two games by 23 or more points, giving up at least 264 passing yards and three-plus touchdowns both times. Sure, one opposing quarterback was Tom Brady, but the other was second-year QB Jalen Hurts.
The Giants offense began the season with several injuries to big names like Kenny Golladay and Evan Engram but is slowly getting healthier. Jones should be started until the wheels fall off.
