Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets – 4 of 7 targets for 85 yards. Four straight games with a score. Owned in most leagues, should be owned in small leagues too.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots – 63 total yards, TD. Trending up, but Patriots game plans vary. Still, should be rostered.
Vernon Davis, TE, Washington Redskins – 7 of 11 targets for 76 yards. TE1 when Jordan Reed misses action.

Tyler Kroft, TE, Cincinnati Bengals – 4 of 4 targets for 23 yards, TD. 3 TDs in last three games. Bye-week option.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots – 82 total yards. Establishing himself as the best runner of the Patriots’ stable.

Blake Bortles, WR, New Orleans Saints – 330 yards, TD, 11 rushing yards.
Brandon Coleman, WR, New Orleans Saints – 2 of 3 targets for 31 yards, TD. Has scored in half the games, but doesn’t do much for yardage.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, San Francisco 49ers – 4 of 8 targets for 80 yards. Solid in two of three games so keep him on your radar.
O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6 of 6 targets for 98 yards and two touchdowns. He needs some consistency before adding him.
Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 5 of 8 targets for 101 yards.  Averaging just 49.3 yards in a pass first offense. Bench option following the bye.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – 4 of 10 targets for 51 yards, TD. Averaging 45.1 yards with 3 TD. Bench option following the bye.

Demarcus Robinson, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – 5 of 8 targets for 69 yards.
JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 2 of 3 targets for 39 yards, TD. Three TDs. Risky play, but he does have upside if you want to gamble.
Deonte Thompson, WR, Buffalo Bills – 4 of 4 targets for 107 yards.
DeAndre Washington, RB, Oakland Raiders – 40 total yards and a TD. A desperation play if Marshawn Lynch is suspended.

Nelson Agholor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles – 4 of 5 for 93 and a score. He’s been effective most games.
Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 85 total yards, TD. Worth and add if he got dropped.

Will Fuller, WR, Houston Texans – 4 of 6 targets for 35 yards and 2 TDs.
Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers – 13 carries for 49 yards after both Ty Montgomery (ribs) and Jamaal Williams (knee) were injured. If he’s next man up, he’s worth an add.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – 5 of 7 targets for 60 yards, TD. Bench depth.

Geronimo Allison, WR, Green Bay Packers – 6 of 8 targets for 122 yards. If Cobb remains out, he’s worth an add as Green Bay can sustain three WRs with fantasy value.

Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants – 7 of 10 targets for 133 yards, TD.

Travis Benjamin, WR, Los Angeles Chargers – 5 of 8 targets for 105 yards.

Jacoby Brissett, QB, Indianapolis Colts – 259 yards, TD passing and 14 yards, 2 TDs rushing. Worth considering.
Jaron Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 2 of 6 targets for 27 yards, TD.
Brice Butler, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 2 catches for 90 yards, TD.
Corey Clement, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 22 yards, TD.
Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 82 yards, mostly in garbage time. Maybe add in large leagues, but he’s still behind West and Allen.
Vernon Davis, TE, Washington Redskins – 5 catches for 58 yards, TD. Worth considering if Reed is out again.
Josh Doctson, WR, Washington Redskins – Pretty 52-yard TD catch. Nice to see, but would need to see more.
Bruce Ellington, WR, Houston Texans – 4 of 7 targets for 59 yards, TD.
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons – 5 of 6 targets for 79 yards, TD.
Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams – 292 yards and 3 TDs. Second quality game out of Goff. Still not one I’d trust.

DeShone Kizer, QB, Cleveland Browns – 242 yards, 2 TDs (3 picks), 44 rushing yard, TD.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars – 4 of 5 targets for 62 yards and 3 TDs. Kudos for daily or best ball leagues, but not a reliable option.
David Njoku, TE, Cleveland Browns – 2 of 4 targets for 12 yards, TD. Second straight game with a TD, but only 59 yards through three games.
Paul Richardson, WR, Seattle Seahawks – 2 of 7 targets for 30 yards, TD. 3 solid games. Only worth adding to 14 team leagues.
Trent Taylor, WR, San Francisco 49ers – 3 of 4 targets for 32 yards and a score. Carlos Hyde and Pierre Garcon are their only viable options.
Luke Willson, TE, Seattle Seahawks – 3 of 4 targets for 54 yards, TD.

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.
