Week 3 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire

Wow, what another great week of NFL football. Most importantly in regards to fantasy football, it was a good week for injuries not being super serious.

If you haven’t guessed, this will be more of a quarterback type of add week. It’s good if you need it, but also a good week just to add reliable depth, and drop one of those pre-draft “sleepers” who are still sleeping.

All my waiver-wire targets are taken from CBS and are owned in 60% or less of leagues

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Denver Broncos (41% Owned)

The fantasy appeal that several of us didn’t think was going to be there for Bridgewater in Denver is there. He’s gone from game manager to someone you can start Week 3 with confidence against the New York Jets.

Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants (18% Owned)

Jones been very undervalued in fantasy this season. He was the QB15 in Week 1 passing for 267 yards and a touchdown along with 27 rushing yards and another touchdown. This last week Jones put up another good performance throwing for 249 yards and another passing touchdown along with 95 yards rushing and another rushing touchdown. Jones is very undervalued and with the rushing upside he has I wouldn’t mind adding him and starting him right away against the Atlanta Falcons depending on my current QB situation.

J.D. McKissic, RB, WFT (58% Owned)

Last week, like most of you, I dropped McKissic for the hopes of anything better as he only had one carry for eight yards. Thursday night he embarrassed all of us who dropped him as he put up over 15 .5PPR points scoring the goal line touchdown over Antonio Gibson. Add McKissic back to your roster especially if you need depth.

Tim Patrick, WR, Denver Broncos (60% Owned)

After Week 1 with Jerry Jeudy going down, I got myself started on the K.J. Hamler hype train. That didn’t pan out well as he only caught one of three targets for five yards. Patrick, on the other hand, did the same thing when Courtland Sutton went down last year. He became a viable WR2 last year and he should be a good WR3 going forward with Jeudy out.

Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants (55% Owned)

Shepard has seen 19 targets through two games and he’s put up 16 receptions for 207 yards and a touchdown. Shepard, since changing his number, looks like the true WR1 on this team over Kenny Golladay and looks to be Daniel Jones’ favorite target. If he’s available, he’s my top add this week.

Rondale Moore, WR, Arizona Cardinals (45% Owned)

This kid is just amazing. From his college days at Purdue, to his first two weeks as a professional… he’s made the transition flawlessly. He has averaged 14.3 yards after the catch, and the way this offense is moving, Moore is just on that next level already.

Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Atlanta Falcons (9% Owned)

The nice thing about Patterson in CBS leagues is that he’s listed as a wide receiver and already has 14 rushes for 65 yards and a touchdown along with seven receptions for 71 yards and another touchdown. With the stats he put up against the Buccaneers (7/11/1 rushing along with 5/58/1 receiving ) you have to add him as a depth piece with the potential to start as a flex play, especially in PPR.
