Fantasy Football: Week 3 Waiver Wire Advice

I can’t remember a worse start for the Giants AND my fantasy rosters after two weeks. Oh, well. Luckily, I have faith in Big Blue, and confidence in my mid-season management. Let’s jump right into the top waiver wire adds for Week 3 om Fantasy Football.

Buck Allen, RB, BAL

Allen should’ve been snatched up last week, but in case he wasn’t, priority add of the week. He appears to be Joe Flacco’s preferred safety valve, and doesn’t have much competition for RB touches in a barron Baltimore depth chart.

Rashard Higgins, WR, CLE

Who? Only if you follow Matt Harmon, creator of #ReceptionPerception, would you know this name. Higgins emerged from obscurity to apparently be the WR1 for Cleveland, as Corey Coleman is out with a broken hand, and Kenny Britt is Kenny Britt again. A lot of garbage time targets to be had in the Dawg Pound this year, and Higgins has the talent to convert those opportunities to fantasy goodness.

Evan Engram, TE, NYG

One could say Engram was the only bright spot on the Giants offense last night, Engram looked as athletic as advertised through the draft process. He obviously needs to build confidence and chemistry with Eli, but it’s clear the LBs cannot cover him. If you stream TEs, Engram looks like a great cheap option.

Jack Doyle, TE, IND

Andre Luck appears nowhere near playing, and Doyle was the prine beneficiary of Jacoby Brissett’s checkdowns. The Colts will be forced to throw all year with that defense, and T.Y. Hilton will be blanketed by opossing defenses, leaving Doyle to soak up targets down the seam.
