Those who gambled on Redskins' Kirk Cousins in FanNation's Football Throwdown or Blitz surely reaped the benefits of his 427-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Washington quarterback had the highest point differential of any player in Week 3 of the NFL. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, expectations were much higher for RB LeSean McCoy, who racked up only 22 rushing yards on 20 attempts.

Below are the rest of the players who put up great and not-so-great weekly fantasy football performances in Week 3.
