Week 3 of the NFL season saw multiple quarterbacks who were likely unowned in Fantasy Football leagues put up great scores. Jacoby Brissett had three touchdowns (1 passing, two rushing), Blake Bortles threw four touchdown passes, Jared Goff threw for nearly 300 yards and had three touchdown passes, and Brian Hoyer had 332 yards passing and three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing).

All four of those quarterbacks put up performances that would have made any owner happy if they started them in Week 3. Yet, none of those four had the best fantasy performance of the week by a quarterback who was largely unowned.

Here are the best performances from players who were mostly unowned in fantasy football leagues heading into Week 3. Each week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted.

Case Keenum, Vikings

Week 3 stats: 369 passing yards, three passing TD, 0 INT, 18 rushing yards

Keenum made his second straight start in place of the injured Sam Bradford in Week 3. He wasn't close to fantasy-relevant with the Rams in his ten starts in 2016 and only threw for 167 yards and no touchdowns in his Week 2 start against the Steelers. Week 3 marked just the second time in his last 23 starts that he threw for three touchdown passes, and his 369 yards passing are a new career-high.

Running backs

Alvin Kamara, Saints

Week 3 stats: 37 rushing yards, one rushing TD, three receptions, five Receiving Yards

Kamara was owned in some fantasy football leagues entering Week 3, but since he had received the third most carries on the team behind Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson, he was mostly left on the bench. He only had two carries in Week 3, but one was a 25-yard touchdown.

He was more valuable in point-per-reception leagues as he caught three passes, even though they were for minimal gains.

D'Onta Foreman, Texans

Week 3 stats: 25 rushing yards, two receptions, 65 receiving yards

It wasn't a great week for running backs who were largely unowned, so the second spot goes to Foreman. After receiving just one carry in Week 1, the rookie third-round pick got a larger workload with 12 in Week 2.

Foreman received eight in Week 3, and also caught his first two passes of the season with each going over 30 yards.

Wide receivers

Taylor Gabriel, Falcons

Week 3 stats: 5 receptions, 79 receiving yards, one receiving TD

Gabriel was a decent plug-and-play option for fantasy owners last season as he caught 35 passes for 579 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games. He had gotten off to a slow start this season though, as he tallied just five catches for 50 yards in Atlanta's first two games. It was somewhat of a quiet game on Sunday for Gabriel, until he hauled in a 40-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Robbie Anderson, Jets

Week 3 stats: three receptions, 95 receiving yards, one receiving TD

It is the second straight week a Jets receiver makes this list as Jermaine Kearse was on it for Week 2.

Anderson had some quality games for the Jets to end 2016 but had six catches for only 50 yards in their first two games of 2017. While he had only three catches in Week 3, one went for a 69-yard touchdown.

Tight end

Marcedes Lewis, Jaguars

Week 3 stats: four receptions, 62 receiving yards, three receiving TD

Lewis is now in his 12th season, and he was never seen as a viable option in fantasy other than his Pro Bowl season in 2010 when he finished with 700 yards and ten touchdowns. Entering Sunday's game, he did not have a single catch on the season in two games. All he did against Baltimore in London is catch three touchdown passes, the first time that he has ever done that in his lengthy career. His 62 yards are more than he had in any game the past two seasons.
