Week 3 Fantasy Football Recap: Cam Heyward Trends Upward





Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward continues to prove that age is nothing more than a number.


Despite a mediocre showing by the Steelers' defense in their Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, Heyward was one of the few players on the roster whose fantasy stock rose, as he currently sits 15th among defensive linemen with 31.8 fantasy points, according to fantasypros.com's latest rankings. Heyward finished the game with seven total tackles and a tackle for loss.


The NFL's current sack leader, linebacker Alex Highsmith, took the No. 1 spot among linebackers with 57.6 fantasy points. Highsmith is well on pace to surpass his career-high sack total of six from last season.


Veteran Myles Jack, who finished with 12 tackles against the Browns, rose five spots to the 11th spot among linebackers with 47.1 fantasy points. Jack is currently third in the NFL among all defenders with 34 total tackles for the season.


On offense, running back Najee Harris currently sits in the 21st spot among running backs with a respectable 27.6 fantasy points; meanwhile, tight end Pat Freiermuth climbed to the 8th spot at his position with 19.8 fantasy points.
