Week 3 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Advice

Fantasy football waiver wire advice for Week 3 of the 2017 season. The parameters and assumptions of this weekly waiver wire advice column can be found in the preseason introduction. Let’s review last week’s recommendations, and then see what we can scrounge up for Week 3 waiver wire advice.

Week 2 Waiver Wire Recap

Presented in the order in which they were recommended.
Player Wk 2 PPR Note
Tarik Cohen 12.8 Easily out produced Jordan Howard.
Kerwynn Williams 2.2 Didn’t impress; outplayed by Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington.
Marqise Lee 14.6 Near even split with Allen Hurns.
Allen Hurns 20.2 Garbage time!
Nelson Agholor 7.9 Made his only catch count against a tough defense.
Javorious Allen 21.1 On the field and involved much more than Terrance West.
Jermaine Kearse 22.4 Two straight weeks of heavy involvement.
Kendall Wright 13.9 Had a costly drop but was heavily involved.
Danny Amendola 0 Inactive.
Cooper Kupp 6.3 Not much production but led the team in air yards.
Paul Richardson 9.9 A TD saved his day.
Chris Carson 11 Seems to be the clear No.1 in Seattle.
Chris Ivory 7.8 Clear handcuff to Fournette.
Tyler Ervin 4.6 Nominal production but involved as both a runner and receiver.
Charles Clay 5.3 An awful day for Buffalo offense.
Zay Jones 3.8 Had over half of Buffalo’s air yards.
Jesse James 6.7 No sign of Vance McDonald yet.
  • Tarik Cohen remains available in 37 percent of ESPN leagues and is a must add if available. Jordan Howard was spotted in a sling after Chicago’s Week 2 loss. Even if Howard plays next week, Chicago’s likely game script is going to favor Cohen’s skill set for the foreseeable future.
  • Kerwynn Williams laid an egg. Both Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington saw usage. Looks like a cluster to avoid if you can.
  • Nelson Agholor struggled, finishing well behind Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, and Torrey Smith in both targets and air yards. He’s a hold in deeper leagues or for desperate teams but a questionable asset in shallow leagues.
  • Kendall Wright didn’t wow anybody, but he was Chicago’s leading receiver and has some ongoing utility in deeper leagues or for needy owners.
  • Chris Ivory played about half as many snaps as Leonard Fournette and has emerged as the obvious handcuff if you’re into that sort of thing.
  • Zay Jones scored poorly, as did Buffalo’s entire offense. However, his line would have looked a lot better if he’d managed to come down with a long distance desperation pass at the end of regulation. As it is, he had over half of Buffalo’s air yards. Through two weeks, he has as many targets as Martavis Bryant and Jeremy Maclin. If you can spare the bench space, he’s worth a hold.
