Following a breakout performance in Week 2, NY Jets rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson is one of the top fantasy football pickups before Week 3.
Week 2 was another crazy one in the NFL, where historic comebacks and wild barnburners defined Sundays action. There is also a lot of fantasy football goodness, like the Baltimore-Miami game which saw Lamar Jackson and Tyreek Hill deliver performances sufficient to win the week because of their fantasy owners.
There have been also some new standout performers which will help you win in future weeks in the event that you claim them off waivers on Tuesday. All players listed here are rostered in less than 50% of Yahoo fantasy leagues.
5. Top Fantasy Football Pickups For Week 3 LA Chargers WR Joshua Palmer
A hamstring problems for Keenan Allen opened starting snaps for Palmer and he capitalized on Thursday, converting 4-of-8 targets into receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown. The clear No. 2 option behind Mike Williams in the passing game, Palmers expertise makes him an intriguing flyer in a Chargers offense which should haven’t any issue scoring points this year.
The primary question about Palmer may be the option of Allen, who might be able to return for Week 3 after getting a supplementary 10 days to rest his hamstring. Palmer will be downgraded to a bench option if Allen is active but hamstrings are tricky injuries that may get aggravated if youre not careful.
Rostered in 27 percent of Yahoo leagues, Palmer is an excellent stash option which will have flex value if Allen or Williams suffers a personal injury later in the growing season. Justin Herbert can be so good he might be able to offer some standalone value to Palmer even though many people are healthy, causeing this to be an excellent speculative play.
