Waiver Wire Week 3

NFL Waiver Wire Week 3

NFL Waiver Wire Week 3 by Utter-Fantasy Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles


Next week will begin the NFL team Bye Weeks. With many players off in the coming weeks, it will be important to your fantasy football teams to find players on the NFL Waiver Wire Week 3 and in other weeks, particularly quarterbacks, to stay competitive in your fantasy football leagues.

Quarterbacks Waiver Wire Week 3


ARI QB Carson Palmer- Many fantasy owners have to replace DAL QB Romo, CHI QB Jay Cutler & perhaps D Brees- QB Palmer is currently the #12 overall QB in the NFL after 2 weeks

NYG Eli Manning is currently the #13 overall QB in the NFL after 2 weeks

CINN QB A Dalton is currently the #14 overall QB in the NFL after 2 weeks

NYJ Ryan Fitzpatrick has weapons and recorded 244 yards and 2 TDs Monday night vs IND

other deep league candidates- M Mariota- J Winston

Running Backs Waiver Wire Week 3


ATL Devonta Freeman- RB Tevin Coleman ( broken rib) who had a nice start to the season, is out for likely a couple weeks, so RB D Freeman is now the starter

WASH Matt Jones- He can’t be ignored anymore. The WASH staff threw support behind RB Alfred Morris, but RB Matt Jones talent makes him a guy that must get touches- Currently the #8 overall QB after 2 weeks

GB James Starks- Reports Monday are that RB Eddie Lacy’s sprained ankle was “very weak and sore”

DEN  Ronnie Hillman- After 2 Weeks, GB QB A Rodgers has out rushed DEN RB CJ Anderson. Anderson & Hillman have been splitting carries so both should be owned

ARI Chris Johnson- HC B Arians has suggested that eve when RB ellington gets helathy, CJ2K may still be the starter

NE Dion Lewis- RB Lewis got a lot of action Week 2, but classic HC Belichick, he may again Week3, may not touch the ball until Week 7- No one knows

other deep league candidates- SEA Fred Jackson- BUFF Karlos Williams

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Week 3


IND D Moncrief- He should have been added last week if you had a chance- See Week 2 Waiver Wire– Grab him now if you can- TY Hilton re-injured himself Monday night- ( Same thing goes for GB WR James Jones)

CLEV T Benjamin- He clearly must start this list because of his success for the past 2 weeks, but even CLEV had WR T Benjamin as their #5 Wr on their depth charts. Still, 204 yards and 3 TD in 2 weeks

SD- Stevie Johnson- I always say…”I’ll believe it when I see it”- Well I saw QB Rivers favor Stevie Johnson over Malcolm Floyd, at least in Week 1 & Week 2

ATL Leonard Hankerson- #3 WR and good chemistry with QB M Ryan- A good grab for deeper leagues-WR Hankerson caught 6/11 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta’s Week 2 win over the Giants

SEA Doug Baldwin- This player will have bad games, but if the match up is right vs a good run defense, WR Baldwin will be a plug-in player- Week 2- caught seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown

NYJ Quincy Enunwa – A desperation grab but it looks like WR Eric Decker ( knee) will miss a week and perhap more- WR Enunwa was targeted 3 times Monday

other deep league candidates- NYG Dwayne Harris ( following WR Preston Parker’s release)-IND Philip Dorsett- DEN WR Norwood- BUFF P Harvin

Tight Ends Waiver Wire Week 11


GB R Rodgers- With Jordy gone and other WRs nicked up, TE Rodgers is seeing targets and TD opportunities

DAL G Escobar- A TD catch in Week 1 and almost one in Week 2

CLEV Gary Barnidge- Consider this……CLEV plays OAK Week 3…and Oakland has given up 192 and 4 TDs to CINN TE Eifert Week 1 and BALT C Gillmore Week 2 ( just a thought…and who heard of C Gillmore before he played Oakland)
