We’re late with our pickups this week. I’m on a bit of a vacation, and travel interfered. But that said, there isn’t and/or wasn’t much to get excited about this week on the waiver wire.
Josh Gordon is the darling of Week 3, but I have to assume he’s been stashed on someone’s bench since the draft as he has been in most of my leagues.
There’s plenty of talk that he could soon be traded, which could change his fantasy value, but owners should hold onto him regardless as he’ll be featured in the Browns offense until then.
While a Nate Burleson pizza may have opened the door for Ryan Broyles, he’s been owned or recently stashed in many leagues as well. He has a chance to contribute as part of the productive Lions’ passing game.
So what are we left with? Here are a few names that may or may not be acquired. Continue reading
After there wasn’t much to do on the waiver wire in Week 1 and 2, I was disappointed that we really didn’t get any more talent bubbling up the top for Week 3.
I wouldn’t bet an eyebrow on any of these guys.
If you didn’t get Marlon Brown last week or if Joique Bell is still a free agent, clearly, you need to go after them this week, as their value only increased after their play in Week 2.
As for Week 3… Continue reading
Week 2 gives us a little more clarity, but a number of poor showings have us concerned. I wouldn’t go betting an eyebrow on the outcome of any of your fantasy performances.
My big roster question comes down to whether I can trust T.Y. Hilton to get involved this week. Despite all the matchup love he’s getting, he’s going to be benched on my fantasy squad until he has a worthwhile performance.
Let me preface this pickups post by noting that no one has jumped out a must add in Week 1. We had some very impressive performances, some disappointing ones, and a crazy Monday night, but most of the explosive pickups like tight ends Jordan Cameron and Jared Cook were drafted. And those leagues that left Julius Thomas on the waiver wire probably have their teams stocked with tight ends across the board.
You could be looking for quarterback help, but I already told you all about Terrelle Pryor’s abilities before Week 1.
If you’re using a FAAB, otherwise known as a free agent acquisition system, I wouldn’t put any money down on these guys and just take what your league gives you.
I think there will be some game-breaking pickups later this season, as there always are, more worthy of spending the big bucks. So I wouldn’t advise blowing your budget on the likes of Julian Edelman, who could dwindle in value as quickly as he has risen.
So here’s who I got. Continue reading
