Who Experts are Targeting on the Week 3 Waiver Wire

Week 2 of the 2014 fantasy football season will likely be kept in mind for the barrage of injuries to hit rosters around the NFL.

A number of leading players dropped on Sunday, like Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and receiver Desean Jackson, in addition to Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green, Miami Dolphins running back Knowshown Moreno and Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.

Though Griffin wasn’t attacked on the play, it looked like he rolled his ankle while attempting a pass in the very first quarter of Sunday’s matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. Griffin was writhing in discomfort on the field and ultimately carted off, with back-up Kirk Cousins stepping into toss a touchdown on the very next play.

Jackson would later on go down with what some reports have actually called a bruised shoulder, putting his future manufacturing and wellness in doubt for owners; and Green was pulled after suffering a toe injury; Bryant likewise hurt his shoulder however returned to the game and was astonishing, while Moreno abused his elbow.

For now we don’t know the long term status of each gamer’s injury, but fantasy owners will need strategies to replace them for a brief or long stretch of the season.

Several players can arise in the handful of games continuing to be in Week Two, but let’s take a look at a few of the players owners may think about for Week 3’s waiver wire claims. Remember, constantly drop and add at your very own discernment.

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins

Cozs has more than his fair share of detractors, but he is next in line on the Redskins depth chart. If RG3 is out, Cousins will likely get the start in Week 3 at Philadelphia. He looked extremely sharp for the remainder of the Jacksonville video game, going 22-for-33 for 250 yards and two goals, and the Eagles matchup figures to be a shoot out with lots of chances for Cousins.

Niles Paul, TE, Washington Redskins

When Jackson decreased, Cousins turned to Paul, who was currently supposed to have an expanded role with Jordan Reed out. Now in his 4th period from Nebraska, Paul excelled versus the Jags with 8 receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown off 11 targets. We had him as sleeper earlier this week, and he can continue to breakout over the next few weeks.

Owen Daniels, TE, Baltimore Ravens

Capturing five spheres for 28 yards and two goals, Daniels made his first huge impact for the Ravens after eights periods with Houston. However Daniels typically has one excellent video game, and follows it up with a car. He will get picked up, but Daniels ought to be your second or third choice with Kansas City’s Travis Kelce a much better lasting choice.

John Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals

With Carson Palmer hurt, and Drew Stanton stepping in, Arizona receivers could lose favor with owners. However in extremely deep leagues Brown might be a lasting rough diamond, especially when bye weeks start. He’s loaded with speed and athleticism, and showed some flashes with 3 receptions for 28 yards versus the Giants talented secondary.

Buffalo Bills DST

Four sacks, one fumble recuperation, one interception and only 10 points allowed versus division competing Miami to take the early AFC East lead. They’ve got another house game in Week 3 against San Diego, an offense that hasn’t look as strong as in 2013’s.

Others to enjoy: Matt Asiata, RB, Minnesota; Bobby Rainey, RB, Tampa Bay; Jerricho Cotchery, WR, Panthers; Jason Avant, WR, Panthers; Mohamed Sanu, WR, Bengals; Miles Austin, WR, Cleveland
