Week 3 players to target

An exciting Week 2 of the NFL season culminates in a double-header on Monday night. In game one, the Tennessee Titans will play the Buffalo Bills, and in game two, the Minnesota Vikings will play the Philadelphia Eagles.

The second week was a grueling journey for fantasy football managers. Amon-Ra Saint Brown He made history with his eighth game in a row with over eight receptions for the Lions, with a draw Antonio Brown And the Michael Thomas. Plus, Toa Tagoviloa He was a top spot with an imaginary 38.8 points that included the Miami franchise’s record six touchdowns.

However, the biggest story from week two is included Tree Lance. He was taken off the field in the first quarter of the San Francisco 49ers game against the Seattle Seahawks, forcing Jimmy Garoppolo To take over. The referee had a broken ankle, so Lance will now miss the season, leaving the Fantasia directors scrambling to replace him.

To that end, I have some QB suggestions for you, as well as for players you should know about in the exemption corps in other positions. While some of these players can be helping your fantasy football teams right now, others are in hiding – players who may not be featured in your squad in Week 3 but could have the potential to do so in the near future. Farewell weeks are approaching, so they will serve as useful depth options as well.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at ESPN Fantasy’s recommended Week 3 waiver add-ons.


Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers (1.0% listed by ESPN): Well, if you want to replace the Lance, let’s start from the obvious. Prior to Sunday’s game, Garoppolo wasn’t expecting to get any reps on the field, but that’s exactly what he got for most 49-player wins with a 27-7 score. Last season, he averaged 16.0 Fantasy points per game, making him a solid player for Fantasy managers. And don’t forget that with Garoppolo at the helm, he was 49ers in the Super Bowl and the NFC Championship game last year. In other words, expectations for this season will certainly not drop with the forced QB change.

Carson WentzWashington leaders (56.7%): I have to mention the quarterback again this week. Wentz has completed 65.5% of his passes for 650 yards and seven touchdowns in two games so far in 2022. He has not only kept captains in both games, but also brought them back from deficit. Wentz can be seen as a high-end QB2 with an upside.

Marcus MariotaAtlanta Falcons (9.3%): Mariota is a very good choice for deeper tournaments or fantasy managers in superflex or 2-QB format. In two matches, he averaged 16.7 fantasy points and demonstrated his ability to lead the attack of the Hawks. Mariota is on the streaming radar thanks to the presence of Drake LondonAnd the Cordaryl Patterson And the Kyle Bates As the best offensive play makers.

Jared GoffDetroit Lions (6.8%): The Lions scored 71 points during the first two weeks, including touchdowns in each quarter. Goff is surrounded by a developed offensive line and a slew of up-and-coming game makers. With two games, Gauff averaged a fantastic 20.7 points, and it looks like he’s going to have a lot of fruitful games this season. It’s a great QB2 for fantasy managers. Minnesota will rise next in the third week.

running their back

Raheem Mostertand Miami Dolphins (51.7%): Mostert looks like the start of the Dolphins game after he finished 14 touches for 79 yards in the win over the Ravens. Chase Edmonds, who signed the second-biggest contract among back-to-back Free Agents during the season, had just six touchdowns for 41 yards. Mostert also had a higher early percentage than Edmunds. Don’t overcomplicate it. Both runners will participate in the backcourt for the dolphins, but Mostert is the one to be chosen in all tournaments.

Benjamin one (4.0%) and Daryl WilliamsArizona Cardinals (3.6%): James Conner He missed nearly all of the second half against the Raiders on Sunday. He has a history of ankle problems. Benjamin (11 touches) and Williams (10) formed a commission after Conner left, as they both finished the match with a similar number of touches. Background can be split evenly if Conner wastes time in Week 3 against the Rams Keeler Murray He’s also got his share of rushes. Benjamin and Williams are both on the radar with their deeper PPR formats.

tyler limeAtlanta Falcons (14%): Allgeier made his professional debut on Sunday against the Rams with the return of the veteran Damian Williams Apply to infrared due to a rib injury. It was a solid performance from him, tying Patterson (10) to lead the team in rushing attempts. Allgeier played on only 31% of his offensive shots, but he has the potential to be a league winner based on his team production. In Allgeier’s last two seasons in BYU, he ran for 2,731 yards and 36 touchdowns.

Quick beats: Tyrion Davis-Price I played on many shots almost like Jeff Wilson Jr.. But he was nearly ineffective in running the ball through 14 lunge attempts. The 49ers are put back in only 4.5% of the leagues but they might be worth stocking up on. … JD Mikic It still gets priority in the leaders pass game. It’s on the flexible radar for fantasy directors with deeper formats. McKissic has averaged 10.5 Fantasy points per game this season and is listed in only 42% of leagues.

broad receptors

Nelson AgulurNew England Patriots (0.6%): Agholor had his best game for New England on Sunday, seeing a great time in the slot as well as outside. He finished with six receptions for 110 yards. Aholor TD Receiver from QB Mac Jones The probability of completion is only 26.2%, according to Next Generation stats. It was the third lowest achievement probability on any touchdown for Jones to date in his career. The relationship between Jones and Agolor, which is said to have improved during training camp, appears to have translated into regular season wonders. In Week 3, Agholor is having an excellent match against Ravens High School that has just been destroyed Trek Hill And the Jaylen Waddell.

sterling shepherdNew York Giants (10.2%): Shepherd had the most goals (10) against the Panthers on Sunday and was second in picks among the Giants receivers. There is no “true #1 receiver” in New York, so it would be wise to monitor practice reports to better understand who is generating the most noise. However, it is likely that he will remain Shepherd. The Giants host the Cowboys in Week 3. For his career, Shepherd averaged 6.2 goals and 11.0 fantasy points per game against Dallas. It’s a great choice for fantasy directors with deeper formats.



Liz Loza is optimistic about Sterling Shepard’s performance in Week Two and his potential as a resilient player in the PPR Tournaments.

Michael GallupDallas Cowboys (44.2%): Gallup will return to the Cowboys squad in week three after completing his tattered ACL rehab he suffered last season. He will be hailed by the Dallas offense struggling for a WR position. sir lamb He only caught 9 of his 22 goals for 104 yards and hasn’t scored a touchdown yet. Gallup can see a lot of goals against the giants in the third week like Dalton Schultz Deals with a knee injury.

Noah BrownDallas Cowboys (0.8%): Well, how are the cowboys? Brown’s relationship with quarterback Cooper Rush It was on full display on Sunday against the Bengals. This duo signed onto the Cowboys roster back in 2017. So far this season, Brown has been the team’s most productive receiver. Between two quarterbacks, he hit 159 yards and landed on 14 goals. Brown appears to be in great shape as the third week of Giants High School approaches.

Greg DorchArizona Cardinals (2.8%): Dorc has been the Cardinal’s most consistent offensive contributor to date. Through two games, he averaged 6.5 goals and 14.4 fantasy points. When Rondell Mor Coming back from a hamstring injury and DeAndre Hopkins Returning from his suspension, Dorch may lose his value. Meanwhile, he appears to be on the flex radar. Marquis Brown You will fight with him Galen Ramsey At week 3, Dortch was left to see favorable coverage.

Quick beats: Curtis Samuel Listed by only 67.6% of ESPN consortia. Prioritize him if he is available to you, as he has averaged 21.0 Fantasy Points per game this season. …you can do the same with Jahan Dotson, which is registered in only 60.7% of ESPN consortia. He averaged 18.0 fantasy points per game this season.

narrow ends

Logan ThomasWashington leaders (19.5%): From week one to week two, Thomas’s shots and knocks increased. He hit 3 out of 5 goals for 37 yards and touched down on Sunday against the Lions. Wentz has had a lot of success in his career with big receivers and larger narrow ends. In the third week against the Eagles, Thomas can be very productive as Samuel, Dotson and Terry McLaurinIt should, importantly, get a great deal of attention from opposing defenses. Look no further if you need an upgrade in TE.

Evan IngramJacksonville Jaguars (16.6%): Ingram led the Jaguars in goals (eight) and receptions (seven) with a track participation rate of 85%. It is a reliable target of QB Trevor Lawrence, which has plenty of future game makers to target every week. That’s why Engram will have some low statistical outings in certain weeks. However, 12 goals during the first two weeks of the season is an impressive mark. In Week 3, Engram is a very good choice against Defense Chargers who had trouble defending their tight ends. Ideally, it should be paired with another narrow end for fantasy managers to implement a match-based ‘committee’ approach.

Quick beats: Tyler Conklin He averaged 8.0 goals and 10.8 fantasy points per game over two games. CJ OzumaHis eventual return from a hamstring injury could negatively impact his target share. Conklin’s roster is placed in only 1.8% of ESPN’s tournaments. … Hayden Hurst Collected 15 goals in 2 games. Hearst can succeed in the middle of the field with opposing defenses trying to take it Ja’Marr Chase And the T. Higgins.
