Week 3 Waiver Wire and Flier's


Andy Dalton – Coming off a 3 TD performance Dalton faces a Washington Redskins defense this week that just lost LB Orakpo and DL Carriker. Washington over the first two weeks has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to QB’s. Sam Bradford just threw for 310 yards and 3 TD’s in week 2 against the Redskins.


David Wilson and Andre Brown – The short term fix to a possible Ahmad Bradshaw absence in week 3 is Brown, but it’s clear the season long upside resides with Wilson as he becomes more comfortable in protection and securing the ball.

RB Flier

Daryl Richardson – If Steven Jackson's week 2 absence was due to a groin vs. a supposed benching, then Richardson becomes and interesting flier should SJax be limited this week. Against the Redskins Richardson rushed 15 times for 83 yards on a 5.5 average per carry. 


Donnie Avery – Anytime you are getting run opposite Reggie Wayne you are in a place to excel and Avery was that guy with Austin Collie out. 10 targets 9 receptions for 111 yards. Avery got a lot of preseason hype and maybe it’s rolling into form?

WR Flier

Mohamed Massaquoi – Brandon Weeden threw for 3 TD’s in week 2 and gave MM 7 targets and 90 yards on 5 receptions last week. This week Cleveland is going up against Buffalo who is giving up the 3rd most points to WR’s. Perhaps all that Greg Little hype was misdirected?


Martellus Bennett – In his first 2 games with the Giants he got 16 targets, totaling 9 receptions for 112 yards and 2 TD’s. He is emerging in a high powered offense. Grab him.

TE Flier

Brandon Myers – He may be the only consistent pass catcher for Carson Palmer. In two games he has 11 targets and 11 receptions for 151 yards.
