AAF: Atlanta Legends at San Diego Fleet Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The AAF is still going strong entering it’s third week. Well, sort of. Football fans have been intrigued by the start up league’s supply of additional football during the offseason. In Week 3 of its 10-week season, the AAF has supplied plenty of highlight reel plays and prospective developmental players for the NFL.

Here is how to watch this weekend’s action.

  • Use this post as your thread throughout the weekend for all AAF games

Arizona Hotshots (2-0) at Salt Lake City Stallions (0-2)

Date: Saturday, Feb. 23
Game time: 3 p.m. ET
How To Watch: B/R Live

John Walford has taken the AAF by storm with big performances in his first two games of the season. With already six touchdown passes, Walford has led a highly productive Hotshot offense. Arizona’s backfield features a double headed monster of Jhurell Pressley and Justin Stockton, who are both in the top 10 in rushing. Stockton’s production has garnered a rushing average of 9.1. Rashad Ross has been Walford’s main target, leading the league in receiving touchdowns with three.

Former Charger Brandon Oliver produced decent rushing totals in his first two outings. Trevor Reilly anchors the defense for Salt Lake City, currently with 7 tackles and 1 fumble recovery.

Memphis Express (0-2) at Orlando Apollos (2-0)

Date: Saturday, Feb. 23

Memphis has been a mess with second-round pick Christian Hackenberg under center. Is that really a surprise though? Zac Stacy, who was once an electric rookie for the Rams, is second in rushing with 159 yards. He even earned the rights to the first player to ever rush for 100 yards.

Conversely, Orlando has played at a high level through the first two weeks. Good ole Steve Spurrier has found a way to rally his troops two weeks in. Garrett Gilbert is on fire throwing the ball, leading the AAF with 620 passing yards. His number one target Charles Johnson, who played for the Buccaneers early on in his career, hauled 252 yards so far. Former Giant Will Hill roams the secondary for Orlando.

Birmingham Iron (2-0) at Atlanta Legends (0-2)

Date: Sun. Feb. 24
Game time: 4 p.m.
How To Watch: CBS Sports Network

Trent Richardson — yes that Trent Richardson — has found a way to be productive on the ground. He currently has a league best 3 rushing touchdown. This team is coached by former Chicago Bear great Mike Singletary. Luis Perez has flashed potential slinging the rock as well. The Iron also boast one of the better offensive lines in the AAF.

The Atlanta Legends have floundered after just two weeks. Tyson Graham Jr. has been productive at linebacker with 14 tackles so far. Matt Simms leads a lackluster offensive unit for the Legends.

San Antonio Commanders (1-1) at San Diego Fleet (1-1)

Date: Sunday, Feb. 24
Game time: 8 p.m.

Quarterback Logan Woodside and receiver De’Marcus Ayers lead the offense for the Commanders. Chasing down the quarterback is defensive tackle Joey Mbu, who has wreaked havoc on opposing offenses. Also strengthening their defense is safety Derron Smith.

The Fleet have been an intriguing team to follow because of their electric pass rushers, with Damontre Moore standing out from the bunch. Quarterback Philip Nelson made headlines after this unprecedented play:
