Week 3 fantasy football rankings
Plus a few waiver wire gems to look for
Hello Playbook subscribers!
Here comes our initial Week 3 fantasy football rankings for all scoring formats.
Since they are exclusive to Playbook subscribers, they are password protected, so please note that below. As always, these will be updated as the week progresses, so check back as needed.
I’m sending these a bit early since I’m doing some traveling tomorrow, and we’re still in waiver wire territory, I’m also sharing a few pickup recommendations courtesy of 5th Down’s Aidan Gurvitch.
Hope all is well where you are, and thanks so much for subscribing!
Week 3 waiver wire targets
Garrett Wilson, NYJ- WR (24%)
Garrett Wilson played a huge role in the Jets’ comeback win this weekend. Wilson suddenly launches into starting lineups with a whopping 14 targets, 8 catches, 102 yards, and 2 scores. We saw flashes of Wilson’s ability to make plays in Week one, but he lacked the production to be trusted as a starter. Being a top 10 receiver in targets in the first two weeks, it’s a miracle that you have a chance at picking him up due to his remarkable 24% owned percentage.
Jakobi Meyers, NE- WR (35%)
This is a familiar scene. Jumping onto the Jakobi Meyers hype train meanwhile, the receiver is yet to have a score on the season. Meyers averages just one touchdown for about every 1,000 yards in his career. But don’t let that number phase you. The volume Meyers has received makes him worthy of a roster spot either way. I’d also be willing to guarantee his touchdown numbers go up this season.
Khalil Herbert, CHI- RB (48%)
Khalil Herbert is still a must-add despite what he produced in Week 2. It’s fairly likely that David Montgomery either gets hurt or has his touches handed over to Herbert at some point this season. Even though Herbert may not have a lot of usage at the moment, he could have some red zone touches as a backup. It’s only a matter of time until the stash pays off.
