Free Agent/Waiver wire Pick-ups (Week 3)

With a rash of injuries many players are going from unknown to must own.

Philip Rivers

He’s gone in many leagues.  Yet I see his name kicker around from time to time.  He had a great week 2 and his season should be strong.  He’s thrown 4 TD’s for 522 yards against Arizona on the road and Seattle at home.

Donald Brown

Ryan Mathews has hit the shelf.  Woodhead and Brown will share time.  Both should be owned.  He averaged 5.3 yards per carry last season.  He’s a very good flex option.

Knile Davis

Jamaal Charles has a tricky ankle injury that can take a while to comeback from.  Davis has been very productive in Charles’s absence.

Khiry Robinson

I’ve been a huge fan of Robinson since the 2103 pre-season.  With Ingram down his role will increase.  Robinson has 14 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown.  He’s only been targeted once in the passing game.

James Jones

I had zero hope for Jones.  I figured we’d never hear much from him after leaving Green Bay for Oakland.  But he’s been successful so far.  His week 2 double fumble has overshadowed the 9 receptions for 112 yards and a score.  He got in the end zone week 1 also.  Jones remains a red zone threat every week and should be owned.

Mohammed Sanu

The versatile Sanu made the most of AJ Green’s absence last week.  Many of Daltons weapons are sidelined and grabbing Sanu could pay off big.  Sanzenbacher will get his shot also.

Niles Paul

Jordan Reed will try and test his hamstring this week in practice.  So that’s the difference between picking up Paul and not.  I wouldn’t put a waiver claim in for Paul.  But if he does play, Paul had a great week 2 against the Jaguars.
