Here is what to anticipate in Week 3.

Imagine it or Not: Calvin Ridley is the New No. 1 WR in Atlanta

I’ve by no means seen something fairly just like the damage scenario across the NFL in Week 2, and I have been doing this Fantasy soccer factor for a decade now. Accidents occur each week, however we misplaced a minimum of 10 potential Fantasy contributors in a single week, together with the highest two picks in most drafts in Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley. That is going to make this week’s waiver wire one of many busiest ever as everybody scrambles to seek out replacements, and it will make determining who to start out and sit a good larger headache than regular.

It is a ton to maintain up with, and it’s hard enough to keep up with everything that’s going on around 16 games when there aren’t this many accidents, which is why I like to succeed in out to the Fantasy Football Immediately crew to information me. Each week on Tuesday morning, we do a survey on a number of the greatest storylines and rankings dilemmas of the week. Here is what we’re anticipating for Week 3, starting with a take a look at the waiver-wire choices and what to anticipate from the Panthers and Giants with out their stars.  

Who’s your high waiver-wire goal for Week 3?

  • Jamey: It must be Mike Davis since he ought to step into the beginning position for the Panthers with Christian McCaffrey (ankle) out. You need to like that he obtained eight catches in Week 2, and he has 20-touch potential. I like Darrell Henderson lots, however we do not understand how lengthy Malcolm Brown (finger) and Cam Akers (ribs) may very well be out. In the event that they’re again in Week 3, the Rams backfield will once more be crowded.
  • Dave: As a result of I haven’t got a ton of confidence in Wayne Gallman as a season-saving working again, notably on a Giants crew that struggled to create dashing lanes for Saquon Barkley, I am going to tab Davis as the perfect short-term working again on waivers. Henderson is a detailed second.  

  • Heath: It is Henderson. No, Davis. No, undoubtedly Henderson. In all probability. I lean Henderson as a result of his upside and potential to be helpful for the remainder of the season. However simply barely.

  • Adam: Davis looks as if the RB with the clearest path to touches. If it is not Davis, I am Henderson pending some Rams damage information. 

  • Chris: I feel the consensus goes to be Davis, who figures to see lots of work over the subsequent month or so. Davis is not any McCaffrey, clearly, however he locked up the backup job fairly rapidly in coaching camp, and figures to see loads of work in each the passing and working sport. I feel Davis may very well be a top-15 again in McCaffrey’s absence.

What are your expectations for Saquon Barkley and Christian McCaffrey’s replacements?

  • Jamey: See above on Davis. As for the Giants, I hope they signal Devonta Freeman, as a result of I’ve little religion in Dion Lewis and Gallman. Of the 2, I am going to take Lewis primarily based on his anticipated position within the passing sport.
  • Dave: Gallman will work dashing downs and Lewis will fill in on passing downs. That break up would possibly really make Lewis type of attention-grabbing in full PPR, however it’s simply an assumption of how they’re going to be used. The Panthers solely have Trenton Cannon on their energetic roster proper now to assist Davis out, so the hunch is Davis will deal with a ton of snaps. I feel Davis may work his means into the top-24 working again dialogue in PPR for nevertheless lengthy McCaffrey is out.
  • Heath: I would reasonably have Davis than any Giants, except Freeman turns into a Big. Davis may very well be a borderline top-25 working again with upside if he does not should share. Lewis may very well be a PPR flex.

  • Adam: For the Giants, I feel Gallman may very well be a flex assuming he’s getting the vast majority of the carries. I am not so fascinated with Lewis, and naturally there are free agent RBs like Freeman and Lamar Miller looming. And for Carolina, Davis might be a low-end RB2 or flex for now. He must be rostered and probably began if you’re weak at RB.

  • Chris: Determining what to anticipate from the Giants backfield is a a lot harder query. Initially, Gallman was a wholesome scratch in Week 2, however may very nicely be the starter in Week 2 over Lewis. Plus, the Giants are reportedly bringing Freeman in for a tryout and will signal him. I am going to make it straightforward for you: In all probability, not one of the there will probably be rather more than a fringe beginning choice till considered one of them proves it.

Which participant helped himself most long run in Week 2?

  • Jamey: Cam Newton. He is again as a top-five quarterback if he can keep wholesome. I mentioned that previous to the season, and you have now seen the upside by two video games. Let’s simply hope he does not get damage.

  • Dave: I used to be most likely the final individual on the planet who did not purchase into Newton as a must-start Fantasy quarterback. I can not assist however be impressed by how nicely he threw the ball on Sunday. If he will preserve doing that and be the Patriots‘ goal-line resolution, then how will you not be excited to get him in your lineup?

  • Heath: I am going to say Henderson. Sure, Akers and Brown had been injured, however Henderson shined. He has good pedigree, and if Akers misses one other week or two Henderson may grow to be a function again.

  • Adam: Chris Carson is the person within the Seattle backfield and there by no means ought to have been any doubt. And as a pleasant added bonus, Carson has three TD catches this season! He had three profession TD catches coming into 2019!

  • Chris: It must be Leonard Fournette, who benefited from a Ronald Jones fumble — technically a Tom Brady fumble, however not in Bruce Arians’ eyes — for an enormous breakout sport. Is he assured to be the starter shifting ahead in Tampa Bay? Not essentially. But it surely looks like Arians is in search of any purpose to offer the job to Fournette, and he might have discovered it.

Which participant damage himself most long run in Week 2?

  • Jamey: If you have not lower Rob Gronkowski but, now’s the time. It is extremely uncertain he is ever going to be a constant Fantasy choice for Bruce Arians.
  • Dave: I can not really feel assured in beginning Jarvis Landry shifting ahead. The Browns run sport is clearly a precedence and Odell Beckham has his position as the highest goal within the offense. Actually, what’s left for Landry that Fantasy managers can be ok with?
  • Heath: Jones is the apparent reply proper? We had been simply ready for one thing like this and Fournette did not waste the chance.

  • Adam: I am finished with Gronkowski. The tip.

  • Chris: I will go together with Preston Williams, who was unable to reap the benefits of DeVante Parker‘s damage in Week 1 and struggled once more in Week 2, together with a dropped landing within the Dolphins failed comeback effort. He deserves a while to get his toes beneath him as he comes again from his ACL damage, however that does not imply you want to hold on to him whereas he does. Parker is the No. 1 choice right here, and that is not altering anytime quickly, it seems like. 

Who’re three gamers you might be beginning in Week 3 who weren’t drafted as starters? 

  • Jamey: Joshua Kelley, James Robinson and Diontae Johnson. Kelley, considered one of my favourite sleepers, is getting lots of work in tandem with Austin Ekeler. Robinson has emerged as a standout working again for the Jaguars. And Johnson leads the Steelers in targets by two video games.
  • Dave: You imply moreover Newton? Johnson, Robinson, and Kelley

  • Heath: Minshew, Henderson, Johnson

  • Adam: Minshew deserves a glance towards Miami, notably with Byron Jones damage. I can not get away from Johnson, and I like CeeDee Lamb in what ought to be one other excessive scoring sport towards Seattle. 

  • Chris: Kelley, Russell Gage, Gardner Minshew. Kelley seemed like a lotto ticket that you just might need to attend on again in draft season, however by two weeks, he is tied with Ekeler for the fifth-most carries within the NFL. He seems like a reputable No. 2 Fantasy RB for Week 3 towards the Panthers. 

Who’re three gamers you drafted within the first half of drafts who you might be dropping?

  • Jamey: I did not draft any of those guys within the leagues I am enjoying out, however three gamers you must drop are Gronkowski, Tevin Coleman and Austin Hooper. See above on Gronkowski, and Coleman is straightforward to maneuver on from now that he is damage. Hooper has struggled by two video games and does not appear to be somebody who will probably be a constant stat producer.
  • Dave: I am fairly affected person, so I am not dropping anybody I took with considered one of my first eight picks who’s not finished for the yr. Perhaps the one exception is Jordan Howard.  

  • Heath: Matt Breida, Howard, Christian Kirk.
  • Adam: Barkley! Additionally Evan Engram, Carson Wentz and Kerryon Johnson (even with the TD) are price contemplating.
  • Chris: Gronkowski, Emmanuel Sanders, Breida. We may throw Austin Hooper in there with Gronkowski, too. There are simply too many attention-grabbing tight ends on the market, most notably Mike Gesicki, who’s a must-add after his large Week 2 breakout. However I might additionally drop both for Mo Alie-Cox, Jordan Reed, or Jonnu Smith for Week 3. 

Who’s your high streaming QB, TE, and DST?

  • Jamey: Minshew is the free area at quarterback, and you need to be including Dalton Schultz in all leagues. He is greater than only a streamer because the beginning tight finish for the Cowboys. And I am going to return to the Colts DST with the matchup towards the Jets.
  • Dave: Minshew, Gesicki, Colts. 
  • Heath: Minshew, Gesicki, Chargers.
  • Adam: Minshew, Schultz, Colts.
  • Chris: Minshew, Mo Alie-Cox — if Gesicki is not obtainable — and the Buccaneers. If the Bucs aren’t obtainable, then the Colts or Chargers.
