TRADE + WAIVER WIRE WEEK 2 – 3 (UPDATED)
UPDATE ADRIAN PETERSON GETTING SURGERY OUT 3-4 Months (Basically Season)
DO NOT WAIVE AP YET
Check out the updated Waiver Wire. Ask questions if you have any. Note that Ronnie Hillman signed with the Vikings and in reality he is better than both RBs. Straight committee.
*YOU CAN DROP AP IF THERE IS A MUST-OWN or RB3/WR3 on Wire.
TERRELLE PRYOR MUST OWN
With Corey Coleman breaking his hand, Pryor will be the guy for whatever it is worth for the next few weeks. WR#4 Quality add him with speculation he can be more. Josh Gordon sounds like he is still up to his dumb ways. He ranks ahead of Kenny Britt
TRADE MARKET WEEK 2 – 3
Comment in your own comment if you want me to come up with a trade.
Re-Post Roster in comment it is easier for me to read that way.
Just play the Waiver Wire. No QBs to get rid of, none to acquire. Joe Flacco should be sitting on the bottom of every Wire, he is QB1 potential when the matchup is right. If you are feeling really unsure about QB (Stafford is fine Lions WRs had 11+ Drops on Sunday and Staff had 2 TDs called back) then comment.
Before J-Stew went down, he was involved in the first 3 plays of the game collecting a 1st Down. He is a major key to this offense, grab him and you will have a TD machine by the end of the season. Do not pay too much, his cost will not be a lot.
The Bengals schedule will open up soon, when it does Jeremy Hill will be a 20+ Carry/game back who rushes for 100 Yards all the time. I don’t know why Bengals are throwing the ball like there is no tomorrow. Team would be so much stronger if they established Hill.
Ya Latavius is not the bell cow RB we expected, but he is such a stud that you have to assume his role will grow. Raiders offense is explosive, Latavius is on a TD binge. He may cost a lot, but he is worth seeing if you can get in a trade.
Even with Ingram looking fat and slow, the Saints are giving him zero competition. Cadet and Hightower get their occasional plays, but this is all about Mark Ingram. Those TDs will start to come.
If the Redskins would run more, Jones would be a BEAST. Soon they will see throwing the ball 40+ times is not how to win Football Games. Jones has shown some BEAST flashes.
Last Week Sell High was Doug Martin and Spencer Ware. Owners who own both missed out on big trade opportunities. Both have lost tremendous value. I would still move both players if you can.
Lacy is not getting the job done. You can still get a star RB for him, maybe even DeMarco Murray. Take the move, Starks is looking better than Lacy, Spiller may join team.
Miller is per volume. Not breaking any tackles, Lamar is getting what the defense gives him. Sooner or later, all these carries will really catch up with him. Either way he is never that special, a ton of hype for nothing. If you can get Forte/McCoy. Make the move and get rid of the overrated RB. Forte would be great.
Gurley is on a really bad offense this year. So bad it is not going to get better. See if you can get Forte, see if you can get AP and something else. Get rid of Gurley while he has 1st Round value.
Just make sure you get any of the players above if you sell D-Will. Steelers will use both RBs when Le’Veon returns from suspension.
The targets are there for Tate, nearly had a 60 Yard TD that was just overthrown. Tate is the man for Stafford, with Jones dropping more balls than Tate last week, Tate can earn his way back into Mr. Reliable for Staff. The Price is nothing to get him.
Broncos have had a tough early schedule and it continues to Week 3. Soon the Broncos schedule will open up, D-Thomas and Emmanuel will be solid WR1/WR2 value.
Missed out on Sanu mania? Get him for the low now that he put up human numbers in Week 2. Matt Ryan still nearly threw for 400 Yards, Sanu will get his. Last week was a fluke.
Fitz is BEASTING and you can now get Top 15 WR for him. Take the move, grab someone like Golden Tate. Get a player on a team that is throwing the ball 40+ Times a game, and not a player who is blowing teams out in the weak NFC West.
Waiver Wire is so deep at TE. No need to make trades for any.
WAIVER WIRE WEEK 2 – 3
As always post your team below. Make sure to include Record.
Also helps if you include the best guys available according to my Rankings. If you are interested in someone I did not list go ahead and ask.
PW will change after Week 2.
PLAYERS LISTED IN ORDER OF RANK
This has to be nothing short of just not updating from Week 1. We all know he is the man again and many of us own him
Magic is not afraid to launch it deep and is looking like a QB1 right now. Keep rolling with him as a strong backup.
Flacco has the weapons to get it done this year. With Pitta looking healthy as well, Flacco is a Top 10 QB when the matchup is right.
The combination of running and passing keeps him alive. He is nothing like the passers above him, but he has good upside.
Just not an exciting Fantasy Option. Steady. Steady.
The Pass Attempts will be there, but he is not that good of a QB and is not reliable.
The safe version of Ryan Tannehill, Wentz is not flashy but those rushing numbers really add up.
Still makes mistakes and the Dolphins offense is horrible to watch.
Trevor still has the great passing touch. Soon he will have one of those games that put him on the radar.
Still learning the Vikings system, has the weapons but he still looks lost at times.

Sproles is very much involved in the Eagles offense. 10+ touches seem to be automatic.
Jennings is expected to practice Wednesday, so until Jennings misses a game Vereen remains a high upside PPR option but definitely a risky play.
White will have a nice role until Lewis returns. Nothing flashy but he gets the job done in PPR Leagues.
RB 4 POTENTIAL
Booker looks like a future stud. The carries are there, and they can reach double digits before the season is done.
The Mail Truck will get a larger role as the season goes. Zeke running 100, it is a long season.
Starks still looks nifty, but Lacy is looking more and more like the old Lacy. Still not vintage, but good enough to keep Starks on the sidelines.
West looks more explosive than Forsett. Good upside player, he should get more opportunities as the season goes.
Not a very talented RB, Jay might get a shot to regain his spot if Arian has to miss a game. Maybe.
Hillman should emerge as a threat as the season goes, for now he is nothing but a change of pace.
If David Johnson misses any time, CJ2K still looks vintage.
Expect Cameron Artis-Payne to be active next week. Fozzy will be a risky start while J-Stew is out.
Moncrieff may miss a game, Dorsett would be very exciting.
TERRELLE PRYOR READ TOP OF ARTICLE
Britt and his role as the solid WR#1 continues to grow with this team. Fisher taking him to the vintage days.
Choosen Quan got his TD. Had another wiped away from a penalty. Good deep option.
The clear #2 for Wentz, Agholor has some potential to reach the level fantasy experts wrongfully predicted last season.
Garcon is reliable, but Docston is coming on strong almost knocking Pierre out.
Only reason to own Quincy is if you own Marshall or Decker. Quincy is too unreliable unless one of them goes down.
*Future BEAST or BUST. Could somehow find his way into the endzone against a Bad Colts Team. Long-term not a good bet not a good player and the Chargers are far away from throwing this guy 10 targets in a game.
Reliable #2 WR for Cutler. Kevin White is on the rise, but Royal is legit the safe guy.
TE 1 POTENTIAL
Ol Reliable is catching everything. He is getting targeted more than Sanu and Jones, definitely worth the add at this point.
Rudolph should be involved more and more with AP out.
Pitta is looking vintage and could be a sneaky TE1 by next week.
Cook will be a reliable #1 before the season is done. Packers offense looking whacky early.
Nothing exciting, but he gets those 4+ Points with the best of them.
Virg is solid as a player, but not reliable yet.
Dolphins finally hosting their home opener. Does not get much easier going up against a 3rd String QB and the Cleveland Browns. Expect the D-Line to go NUTS in the matchup.
Giants hosting the Redskins should be favorable. Cousins is not looking accurate at all and the Giants Defense looked dominant shutting down Drew Brees. Chances are they shut down Cousins as well.
If you want some Sunday Night action, Dallas D should be dominant at home against a Bears team that could be using Brian Hoyer. Bears season going down hill, Dallas D will help it.
