Before setting your Week 3 Fantasy football lineups, you need to see what our advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, this model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was high on Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The result? Mahomes exploded for 326 passing yards and six touchdowns against the Steelers -- anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a Week 2 victory.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its rankings for Week 3 of the NFL season.

One player the model loves this week: Rams wide receiver Robert Woods, who's still available in 4 percent of CBS Sports leagues. Woods leads the Rams in targets and now faces a Chargers team that let Tyreek Hill go off for two touchdowns in Week 1.

And a massive shocker: Chargers QB Philip Rivers, the seventh-ranked quarterback according to market value, stumbles big-time this week against the Rams and finishes well outside the top 20. He's a player to bench in Week 2.

The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top-10 of the rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing.

So who should you sit and start this week? And where does every player stack up? ...
