Keep an eye on these matchups in Week 3. A few stars might not have big games while we could see big days from a pair of mid-tier youngsters.
|Trent Edwards, QB, BUF vs. New Orleans Saints pass D
||Expect plenty of fantasy points from Edwards as he tries to keep pace with furious Saints offense
|Andre Johnson, WR, HOU vs. Rashean Mathis, CB, JAX
||Mathis likes to shadow AJ, who had just 10 catches for 113 yards and a score vs Jags in '08
|Donnie Avery, WR, STL vs. Green Bay Packers pass D
||Pack are soft at safety with banged up Nick Collins; Avery continues to shake off the rust after injury
|Matt Ryan, QB, ATL vs. New England Patriots pass D
||Bill Belichick will be throwing everything and kitchen sink at Ryan; exp NEP to control clock with O
|Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN vs. San Francisco 49ers run D
||SF LB Patrick Willis has speed to keep up with AD; feel MIN will work in more Chester Taylor, too
