Daniel Jones had one of the best fantasy performances ever by a quarterback making his first career start.

NFL

With another week of NFL action in the books, it’s time to once again look at some players who performed well in fantasy but were not owned by many.

Every week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be included on the weekly list. In order for them to be eligible, they must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues.

Without further ado, here are Week 3’s fantasy football stars who were likely unowned.

1

Quarterback - Daniel Jones, Giants (336 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 28 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns, 2 fumbles lost)

What an incredible first career start it was for the sixth overall pick. According to ESPN, his 34.2 fantasy points in Week 3 are the second-most ever by a quarterback in his first start behind only Eric Hipple’s 42.7 in 1981.

2

Running back - Tony Pollard, Cowboys (103 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 3 receptions, 25 receiving yards)

Pollard got to see more action late as the Cowboys began pulling away from the Dolphins. He had eight of his 13 rushing attempts in the fourth quarter including a 16-yard scamper to the end zone.
