Week 3 Waiver Wire Adds

Quinn Cuskey

QB:

Davis Mills: Mills was thrust into the starting role last week. Now with Taylor potentially out for a bit with a hamstring issue, Mills may have some fantasy relevance in superflex leagues for the next few weeks.

Derrick Carr: With Carr only being rostered in 23% of ESPN leagues, check and see if he is available. Carr has been fantastic through 2 weeks and is showing no signs of slowing down. 

RB:

Cordarrelle Patterson: I suggested in last week’s waiver article to go after Patterson. If you still weren’t sure about him, you should be now. Patterson is still only rostered in 14% of ESPN leagues and is definitely worth a pick up after his first two performances.  

Tony Pollard: The best handcuff in fantasy might have won a starting job, or at least earned a timeshare, on Sunday. Pollard looked like the best RB in Dallas against the Chargers, running for over 8 yards a carry. Expect to see a lot more touches for Pollard as the season continues. If Elliot goes down with an injury, Pollard instantly jumps to aR B2 in most fantasy formats. 

WR:

Hunter Renfrow: Renfrow looks like an early favorite target for Derrick Carr. While playing less than 30% of the Raiders snaps on offense, Renfrow has racked up 11 receptions for 127 yards on 16 targets through 2 weeks. I’d expect to see a lot more of Renfrow on the field in the coming weeks, and what has already been solid production could see an uptick. 

Tim Patrick: While this isn’t my favorite add, it could be worth a target if you really need WR help. I’d consider Patrick a TD-dependent WR 3 in what could be a favorable week 3 matchup with the Jets. 

K.J Osborn: Osborn has looked like the breakout candidate of the year through 2 weeks. Osborn led the Vikings in receiving yards in week 2 with 5 grabs for 91 yards and a score. Osborn is currently benefiting off the extra attention teams are being forced to give to Jefferson and Thielen on every down. I don’t expect Osborn to slow down any time soon.

TE:

Evan Engram: As per usual, the TE waiver pool is a bit dry, but there is a chance Evan Engram could come back from injury this week. With Engram only rostered in 33% of ESPN leagues, he may be worth a quick grab in hopes that he could be the much-needed spark in that Giants offense.
