Last call for Khalil Herbert and other top pickups

After week 3, if your roster is full of red O’s and Q’s and IR’s, it’s definitely not just you. It’s been a rough weekend. I can’t promise to solve all your fantasy problems, but I can give you some additions that might help before Week 4. Below you will find our collection of approved pickups. All of these are available in the Yahoo League for at least 50%.

Priority is added during running back

If Herbert doesn’t happen to stick to your league, it’s finally time to fix that oversight. He took over Chicago’s backfield David Montgomery He got injured on Sunday and found the end zone almost immediately.

It was the first of Herbert’s two touchdowns against the Texans, and perhaps the most impressive. He finished with 157 rushing yards on 20 carries. During Montgomery’s four-game absence last season, Herbert averaged 97 yards of scrimmage and 22 touches per week. Despite the dire state of the Bears’ offense, there’s no questioning his ability to perform on a fantasy-related level. Even if Montgomery is perfectly healthy, Herbert deserves an important role.

Recommended waiver offer assuming a $100 budget: Officially $31. But if there is an obvious need, be proactive.

Joe Mixon Sunday (12-24-0) was also inefficient. he took up the ankle problem, leading to a higher than expected dose of Perrine who gained 61 yards on 11 touches. Cincinnati faces a quick and difficult turnaround this week, when the team faces Miami on Thursday night, which worries Mixon for lingering problems (though Ankle is not expected to be a major concern). Perrine seems likely to share some backfield responsibilities. We already know he’s a capable receiver and a definitive no-frills runner. He’s back on the radar and deserves deep league attention.

Offer: $6

Other running backs to add: Tyler Allgaier (He’s no threat to the 31-year-old cordarrell patterson At the moment, though, he sees normal touches as rotation backs), Justice Hill (In JK Dobbins’ long-awaited return, Hill actually beat him 29-26. Look at this silly running part), Rex Burkhead (He’s not the most dynamic ball carrier you’ll see, but Dameon Piercerecent ball security issues should remain veterinary relevant), J.D. McKissick (He has 13 catches on 16 targets in the last two weeks), Craig Reynolds (probably can’t add Jamal Williamsbut Reynolds is certainly available and could run somewhat longer Dandre Swift withdrawn due to a shoulder injury).

wired wide receiver

After a very busy preseason, Dubs took the receiving role in the rotation for Green Bay to start the year. In his first two weeks of the season, his snap count was limited — he had 35 in the season opener, then 25 against the Bears — but at least he was involved.

However, in the third week, Christian Watson When Sammy Watkins Injured and out of action, Doubs’ services were desperately needed. Rookie produced a near-perfect game. He caught all eight of his targets for his 73 yards, and early scores included;

It felt like a breakout that could reshape the Packers’ receiving hierarchy.Davs rarely left the field against Tampa, playing 55 of his 62 offensive snaps. The rookie’s hands are sticky and tied with the quarterback with pinpoint accuracy, so his situation is close to ideal.i can’t believe no who In every fantasy league you need to take a rookie flyer.

Offer: $16

If you were frustrated by the level of Pickens’ fantasy work in the first few weeks, I understand. Just don’t ask him about his suitability to receive:

Pickens completed his catch of the year on Thursday night by pulling a season-high seven targets and gaining three for 39 yards. He’s played more than 70% of the team’s offensive snaps in his first three weeks, and is a combination of size and speed his player who rarely leaves the Pittsburgh field. Coming soon, Breakout his game.The Steelers may finally need to switch Kenny Pickett At QB to unlock Pickens, but the rookie receiver’s talent and advantages are clear.

Isaiah Mackenzie, Buffalo Bills (42%)

except The whole thing was not out of scope (While this may not have been an easy task) McKenzie excelled in the heat in Miami at the end of Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins. He caught his seven balls for his 76 yards and in nine chances he scored one TD. He was waiting for a sizeable target total from Buffalo’s slot receiver. Now that that’s happened, he really needs to be scooped up in some extra league, and investing in the Bills’ offense sounds like a sane idea.

Zay Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars (11%)

We were all joking about Jacksonville’s spending decisions on receivers during free agency, but the early returns have been great. Jones carried his 10 of 11 targets in Sunday’s decisive victory over the Chargers, including a 14-yard score. The Jaguars are averaging 28.0 points and 375.7 total yards per game, so this looks like an offense that can support multiple fantasy weapons. Trevor Lawrence It took the exact leap we could have hoped for under a real coaching staff. Jones should be seen as a respectable PPR option moving forward. He could rank as a solid starter when Bye hits.

Other wide receivers to consider: Mack Hollins (We’re three games into his season and he’s already reached a career-high receiving yards. In theory he’s only the fourth pick, but he’s seen 18 targets in the last two weeks. rice field), Michael Gallup (His 2022 debut looks very close. It won’t be long before he reestablishes himself as a clear second receiving option in Dallas), onedale robinson (Following Sterling Shepherd’s Monday night knee injury, he’s a flyer worth taking. New York clearly had big plans for the rookie going into the season), Russell Gage (He’s done 12 catch games while battling injuries, but he rarely sees that much work when Tampa’s full receiving corps is healthy and active.) Greg Dorch (He has caught 20 balls in three games, and Arizona continues to deal with a receiver injury and suspension issues).

And a small batch of serviceable tight ends: Jelani Woods (The giant rookie rarely takes the field, but scored two in 16 snaps on Sunday), Evan Engram (touchdown swept replay review a glorious replay overreach in a win against the Chargers), Robert Tonyan (He saw seven targets against the Bucks on Sunday, even though his yardage totals have been disgusting so far), Logan Thomas (Yeah, he was a notable dud in Week 3, but this is a talented receiver playing two-thirds of Washington’s snaps).

Quarterback Streaming or Stashing

Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons (22%)

OK, sure, Mariota is flipping the ball at an unacceptable rate and could lose the starting job to a third-round rookie at some point. Let’s focus on the positive aspects of Mariota’s profile. He’s a man who can throw drake london When Kyle Pitts,Sounds good. He is also a dual-threat QB in three games where he rushed for 92 yards and he scored two. Atlanta head home to face a completely mid-tier Cleveland defense. Mariota is a reasonable streaming his option for those who can’t dedicate themselves to one of his quarterbacks in his full season.

Offer: $4

Also on the QB’s approved list: Jared Goff (He’s averaging 250 TDs and 2 TDs per week and hasn’t fired a dud yet. Seattle is next), Geno Smith (Hey, he’s a man who can throw DK Metcalfe When Tyler Rocket), Matt Ryan (If QB’s Rogue Gallery here every week feels the same… well, you’re not wrong).

Miami Dolphins (15%)

All things considered, the undefeated Dolphins did a pretty fair job against the Bills on Sunday (which helped a lot in the scorching heat of Miami). Given a tough task, but facing a league-best 15-time sacked quarterback. Miami can get him 3 or more sacks in 1-2 turnovers.
