Chris Thompson
.
With two weeks of NFL action in the books, we are starting to get a picture of which players will have a big season and which ones should hit the waiver wires in our fantasy leagues.

 

While we wait for NFL betting odds for week 3, it’s time to look at our fantasy favorites for week 3 of the NFL season.

 

 

Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles

 

Wentz has been putting up impressive numbers so far, so it won’t be a surprise that he has already been picked up in your league. With the Eagles running game being non-existent at the moment, it has fallen on Wentz to carry most of the offensive load, which he has done rather impressively.

 

Wentz had his second 300 yard passing game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs. Not surprisingly, due to the heavy volume of throws, Wentz has been a top 5 fantasy quarterback in the first two weeks of the season.

 

With the Eagles playing the Giants and Chargers in coming weeks, it will be a good idea to start Wentz if you have him.

 

 

Chris Thompson, Washington Redskins

 

This one might seem odd considering he is the third down running back for a Redskins team that likes to throw the ball. However, after his top 5 performance in week 2, it would be unwise to overlook him.

 

Thompson already gets plenty of looks in the Redskins passing game, and with starter Rob Kelley leaving Sunday’s game with an injury, Thompson is going to get more carries in the running game.

 

 

Javorius Allen, Baltimore Ravens

 

After his breakout performance in week 1, Allen was owned by 50 percent in Yahoo. After Sunday’s performance, it will be a steal if you can still find him available.

 

After Danny Woodhead got injured, Allen was expected to get more passes thrown his way, but what has been most impressive about him is his contribution to the running game this season.

 

Allen already has 35 carries in the first two games, and with the Ravens focused on running the ball more this year, Allen is going to get a lot more carries.

 

 

Coby Fleener, New Orleans Saints

 

On Sunday, a lot of the big name tight ends in the league went down with injuries, some were season-ending, while the others will take a few weeks to heal. Regardless, there will be a demand for tight ends this week, and Fleener is the best available option.

 

Fleener has scored a touchdown in both game played this season, and if what we’ve seen from the Saints in the past decade is anything to go by, they will continue airing the ball out, which means more opportunities for Fleener to get you some fantasy points.

 

 

Dwayne Allen, New England Patriots

 

After Rob Gronkowski suffered an injury on Sunday, Allen stepped in to replace him in the lineup. If Gronkowski is sidelined for an extended period, Allen will likely be the go to tight end. Since the Patriots like utilizing the tight end in their offense, expect Allen to put up some big numbers and fantasy points.

 

 

Chris Johnson, Arizona Cardinals

 

With David Johnson set to miss a few weeks with a broken wrist, the Cardinals signed Johnson to replace him.

 

While Johnson isn’t the same runner he used to be, he is still capable of the occasional big game, which makes it worth it to add him to your roster.

There were some unheralded heroes this week. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters
.
Get ‘em
Jaron Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 4 of 11 targets for 73 yards. Should produce if John Brown remains out.
Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 100 total yards.
Phillip Dorsett, WR, New England Patriots – Caught all three targets for 68 yards.
Coby Fleener, TE, New Orleans Saints – 3 of 4 targets for 33 yards, TD. Scored in both games so far.
Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 6 of 7 targets for 82 yards and TD.
Chris Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals – 44 yards compared to 22 for Kerwynn Williams.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, New York Jets – 4 of 5 targets for 64 yards, 2 TDs.
Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 7 of 12 targets for 76 yards.
J.J. Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 5 of 7 targets for 120 yards, TD. Should produce if John Brown remains out.
Samaje Perine, RB, Washington Redskins – 67 yards. Rob Kelley (ribs) could be out.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – 5 of 6 targets for 85 yards. 11 for 132 in two games.
Trevor Siemian, QB, Denver Broncos – 231 yards, 4 TDs, 14 rushing. Three total TDs in first game.
Benjamin Watson, TE, Baltimore Ravens – 8 catches for 91 yards. TE2 option.
Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles – 333 yards, 2 TDs, 55 yards rushing. Second 300-yards, 2-TD game.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Brandon Coleman, WR, New Orleans Saints – 4 of 6 targets for 82 yards, TD.
Gerald Everett, TE, Los Angeles Rams – 3 catches for 95 yards.
D’Onta Foreman, RB, Houston Texans – 12 carries for 40 yards. Not worth an add, but with keeping an eye on if he keeps cutting into Lamar Miller’s workload.
Rashard Higgins, WR, Cleveland Browns – 7 of 11 targets for 95 yards.
David Njoku, TE, Cleveland Browns – 2 catches for 27 yards, TD.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Oakland Raiders – 63 total yards, TD.
Jalen Richard, RB, Oakland Raiders – 109 total yards and a TD. Doesn’t get enough touches.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – 2 of 5 targets for 37 yards, TD.
Deonte Thompson, WR, Chicago Bears – 4 of 5 targets for 57 yards, TD. Unlikely to be a consistent contributor.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – 125 passing yards. Salvaged by 67 rushing yards and a touchdown. Just a desperation QB play at this point in one QB leagues.

.
Get ‘em
Nelson Agholor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles – Caught 6 of 8 targets for 86 yards and a score. Is he ready for the third year leap?
Buck Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 21 carries for 71 yards. Will have a big role with Danny Woodhead sidelined.
Sam Bradford, QB, Minnesota Vikings – 346 yards and 3 TDs. Plenty of weapons and good line play.
Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 49 total yards, playing the most snaps of the Seahawks backs. It’s a crowded backfield, but he could be worth a look.
Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears – Cohen looked explosive. He ran for 66 yards and caught 8 of 12 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown.
Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions- Caught 4 of 7 targets for 69 yards and two scores. Worth an add in case this wasn’t a fluke.
Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – Caught 3 of 4 targets for 42 yards, but is worth an add with Allen Robinson being hurt.
Jesse James, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers – Caught 6 of 8 targets for 41 yards and a pair of scores. He’s a solid TE2.
J.J. Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 5 of 6 targets for 43 yards and a score. He could see more looks with David Johnson out.
Kerwynn Williams, RB, Arizona Cardinals – 12 total yards and a touchdown. Worth a look because of David Johnson’s injury.
Kendall Wright, WR, Chicago Bears – Caught 3 of 4 targets for 34 yards, but with Kevin White now injured as well, someone has to get the targets.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Travis Benjamin, WR, Los Angeles Chargers – 3 of 4 targets for 43 yard, TD.
Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams – 306 yards, TD. 117.9 passer rating. Great start for Goff though.
Demetrius Harris, TE, Kansas City Chiefs – Caught both of his targets for 15 yards and a touchdown. He’s not a feature option in the offense.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – 4 of 6 targets for 76 yards and a score.
Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts – 45 total yards and a TD. Score came in garbage time.
Russell Shepard, WR, Carolina Panthers – 2 catches for 53 yards, TD.
Trevor Siemian, QB, Denver Broncos 219 yards, 2 TDs and 19 rushing yards and a score. Only a two-QB league option or weekly league option.
Alex Smith, QB, Kansas City Chiefs – Sure he lit up the Patriots for 368 yards and four touchdowns. He is a decent backup QB as he doesn’t make many mistakes, but he won’t typically put up these types of numbers. That said, the Chiefs offense did look dynamic.
Mike Tolbert, RB, Buffalo Bills – Tolbert had 12 carries for 42 yards and a scores. He should be owned in 14-team leagues or touchdown heavy leagues.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs – Garbage time touchdown on his only carry. Only targeted once in the passing game. It’s Kareem Hunt’s show. West would be merely a handcuff.
