Bye Week: Detroit, Houston
.
Get ‘em
Nelson Agholor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles – Largely owned, but he is averaging 53.5 yards per game with TDs in four of six games.
Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets – 4 of 12 targets for 76 yards. Averaging 61.5 yards in last four games.
John Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 3 of 4 targets for 63 yards, TD. Second straight game with a score.
Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 15 carries for 74 yards.
Orleans Darkwa, RB, New York Giants – 130 total yards. Established himself as the Giants lead back.
Eric Decker, WR, Tennessee Titans – 7 catches for 88 yards. Finally establishing himself?
D’Onta Foreman, RB, Houston Texans – 12 carries for 59 yards.
Ted Ginn, Jr., WR, New Orleans Saints – 4 catches for 66 yards, TD. Worth owning, but not necessarily a starting option.
Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 5 of 10 targets for 83 yards. Depth option.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots – 52 yards, TD. Starting to earn more touches. Risky option though.

Darren Fells, TE, Detroit Lions – 2 of 4 targets for 26 yards, TD. 3 scores in last two games.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 290 yards, 3 TDs replacing Jameis Winston. Only a desperation play if Winston is out next week.

Jeff Heuerman, TE, Denver Broncos – 2 catches for 24 yards, TD.
Michael Hoomanawanui, TE, New Orleans Saints – 2 catches for 27 yards, TD.

Bye Week: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Dallas, Seattle
.
Get ‘em
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.
Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots – Likely only available in smaller leagues. If he’s there, grab him, especially PPR. 8 catches for 77 yards.
Matt Breida, RB, San Francisco 49ers – 71 total yards. Hyde just 11 yards on 8 carries.
Jacoby Brissett, QB, Indianapolis Colts – 314 yards passing, 14 yards and a score on the ground.

Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 55 yards at 4.6 ypc.
Orleans Darkwa, RB, New York Giants – 69 yards, TD.
Ed Dickson, TE, Carolina Panthers – Caught all five targets for 175 yards. 62 yards last week.

Wayne Gallman, RB, New York Giants – 82 total yards.
Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers – 125 yards and a TD on 6.6 ypc.
Roger Lewis, WR, New York Giants – 29-yard TD. He’s the only healthy Giants receiver.

Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts – 91 yards and a TD. Gore just 48 yards on 14 carries.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em

Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 4 of 6 targets for 23 yards and two TDs.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, New York Jets – 6 of 8 targets for 29 yards, TD. Bye-week fill-in at this point.
Torrey Smith, WR, Philadelphia Eagles – 3 of 4 for 70 and a score. Monitor in case he’s becoming a bigger factor in the Eagles’ offense.
Phillip Supernaw, TE, Tennessee Titans – 2 catches for 16 yards, TD.
Brandon Tate, WR, Buffalo Bills – 2 of 4 targets for 25 yards and a TD.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs – 13 total yards, 2 TDs.

Bye Week: Atlanta, Denver, New Orleans, Washington

Get ‘em
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 4 of 6 for 80 yards, TD. 2nd straight game with a score.
Jaron Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 8 of 12 targets for 105 yards. 27 yards and a score last week and 73 the week prior.
Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 9 carries for 82 yards for second straight week.
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals – 286 yards, 4 TDs, 29 rushing. Solid QB2.
Wayne Gallman, RB, New York Giants – 50 total yards and a TD. Likely gets a crack at the lead back gig.
Adam Humphries, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6 of 7 for 70 yards. 6 for 68 last week. Worth a look in PPR leagues.
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.
Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings – 29  total yards. Will have a larger role if Dalvin Cook (knee) misses any time.
Wendell Smallworld, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 79 total yards and a score.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – 283 yards and 4 TD passes, 24 yards and a TD rushing.
Kendall Wright, WR, Chicago Bears – Caught all four targets for 51 yards and a score. Turned in a dud last week, but he’s still a solid bench option. Chicago has to pass to somebody.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Brice Butler, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 12 yards and a TD. Second straight game with a score, but still not a reliable fantasy option.
A.J. Derby, TE, Denver Broncos – 4 of 6 for 75 yards, TD.
Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers – 58 total yards, TD.
Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers – 7 of 9 targets for 70 yards and 2 TDs. Averaging 65.3 yards in his last three games.
James Hanna, TE, Dallas Cowboys – 28-yard, TD.
Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders – 64-yard TD.
O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 2 of 4 targets for 63 yards, TD. Put him on your watch list.
Tyler Kroft, TE, Cincinnati Bengals – 6 of 7 targets for 68 yards, 2 TDs.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots – 27 total yards, TD.
Elijah McGuire, RB, New York Jets – 131 total yards and a score. Earned a larger role, but will be behind Bilal Powell and Matt Forte (when healthy).
J.D. McKissic, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 65 total yards and TD. Even with Carson getting injured, he’s not likely to be a consistent contributor.
JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 3 of 4 targets for 47 yards, TD.
Fozzy Whitaker, RB, Carolina Panthers – 3 catches for 34 yards, TD.

.
Get ‘em
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.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – 4 of 6 targets for 28 yards, TD. 15 catches through three games.
Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants – 7 of 10 targets for 133 yards, TD.
Wendell Smallwood, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 80 total yards. Should see more action with Darren Sproles out.
Benjamin Watson, TE, Baltimore Ravens – 3 catches for 12 yards and TD after 91 yards last week.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – 301 yards, 2 TDs (2 picks) and 41 rushing. Impressive in first game against Belichick.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets – 3 of 6 targets for 95 yards, TD.
Travis Benjamin, WR, Los Angeles Chargers – 5 of 8 targets for 105 yards.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Impressed with his 244 yard and 4 TDs passing and 18 yards rushing, but not convinced to add him.
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.
Corey Grant, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – 93 total yards in a blowout.
Ryan Griffin, TE, Houston Texans – 5 of 6 targets for 61 yards, 61 yards, TD.
Brian Hoyer, QB, San Francisco 49ers – 332 yards and a pair of TDs with a rushing TD as well. Two duds prior.
Adam Humphries, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6 of 10 targets for 68 yards.
Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints – 42 total yards, TD. Not enough touches.
Case Keenum, QB, Minnesota Vikings – 369 yards, 3 TDs, 18 rushing yards.
Lance Kendricks, TE, Green Bay Packers – 2 of 3 targets for 52 yards, TD.
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.
Robert Woods, QB, Los Angeles Rams – 6 of 7 targets for 108 yards. Had just 61 yards in two games prior.

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.

Chris Carson

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.
