Well we are (nearly) done with the second week of 2022 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 3 Waiver Wire pickups. Making the right moves on the waiver wire is how you can really win your league. Getting those upside depth pieces, and cutting the players that are going to struggle from your roster is going to help you going forwards
Rules for Selection & Order Priority
For a player to be considered to be added, they have to:
- Have an rostered % of 50% or under on ESPN
- Players below are listed by their roster %, not priority. Know your league settings. If there is a high-priority add, you’ll know.
Jameis Winston (NO) @CAR 36.7% rostered
If your heart can take it, then you could try and bring Winston into your roster. After seeming like he left the turnovers somewhat behind, he threw 3 against Tampa Bay. The offense is ready to cook though, with Alvin Kamara expected to return from injury this week.
Jared Goff (DET) @MIN 6.8% rostered
I don’t know what it is, but the Lions offense seems like it has found itself with Jared Goff leading the team. We are now entering Week 3, and Goff has thrown for 471 yards and 6 TDs and only thrown one INT. Goff is getting it done, and you can’t overlook his start.
Jimmy Garoppolo (SF) @DEN 1.0% rostered
Garoppolo is going to be a popular add this week, with Trey Lance being carted off. In Superflex leagues especially, Garoppolo is going to be a scramble to waivers. He isn’t going to be a league-winner, but offers another streaming option for fantasy owners. He even managed to get into the endzone on a rush!
Others to Consider
- Justin Fields (CHI) v HOU 42.1% rostered
- Joe Flacco (NYJ) v CIN 1.2% rostered
