Well we are done with the second week of 2023 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 3 Waiver Wire pickups. Going to be alot of action this week on the wire with Saquon Barkley and Nick Chubb missing time (Chubb far more significant). If you were caught by any of the injuries from this past week- this should help you navigate your way through.
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.
Jordan Love (GB) 39.8% rostered
Love didn’t get the victory over the Falcons, but he looked comfortable leading the Packers offense, with another 3 passing TD display. Next up will be his first game at home, and while the Saints defense is a tough unit, Love is worth considering.
Matthew Stafford (LAR) 29.6% rostered
Stafford has been performing well on the field, but that hasn’t quite translated to fantasy just yet. With the receiving corps that he has, he has good streaming appeal for the next few weeks.
Baker Mayfield (TB) 10.4% rostered
Mayfield has started the season looking alot more assured than many expected. He has developed an almost immediate relationship with Mike Evans, and looked comfortable in the offense. Next up is a tough Eagles defense, but they can be attacked through the air.
CJ Stroud (HOU) 7.4% rostered
The rookie QB impressed with 384 yards and 2 touchdowns in Week 2, making him a promising fantasy option. Stroud is the 1st rookie QB to have 600+ passing yards and 0 INTs through Week 2 of his rookie season. Hasn’t really started to boom, as he hasn’t rushed the ball, but he has the ability to.
Others to Consider
- Desmond Ridder (ATL) 2.3% rostered
- Joshua Dobs (ARI) 0.8% rostered
