After a weekend of injuries and drama, here are some players to add/start for Week 3


Peyton Mullen

Chiefs Demarcus Robinson had a big Week 2. Should he be added because of that?

QB Jimmy Garoppolo

After a rough Week 1 at the Buccaneers for Garoppolo, he bounced back to throw 297 yards for 3 touchdowns against the Bengals. It only took 1 week for him to adjust after tearing his ACL last season, and it shouldn’t be a rough adjustment as he has many weapons, such as Samuels, Pettis, Goodwin, Kittle, and Breida.  Everybody is healthy, so these weapons will especially help their offense. He’ll build upon his Week 2 performance when they take on a weak Steelers’ secondary at home.

WR Demarcus Robinson/Mecole Hardman

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with adding any of the Chiefs’ receivers since Mahomes finds anyone and everyone down field. Robinson and Hardman are the big names to watch with Hill being injured. Watkins and Kelce are going to be getting a lot of attention from defenses, as seen in Week 2 against the Raiders, which leaves the door wide open for Robinson, who posted 6-172-2, and Hardman, who posted 4-61-1. The Chiefs face a Ravens secondary that’s held their opponents to an average of 254 passing yards per game. Then again, those teams were the Dolphins and Cardinals…

WR D.J. Chark

The quarterback change has benefited Chark greatly. He’s looking like the #2 receiver that the Jaguars need after Westbrook had a great start in Week 1, and then got shut down by the Texans in Week 2. For Chark, he had 4-146-1 against the Chiefs and then posted 7-55-1 against the Texans. He’ll another opportunity to shine against a tough opponent when the Jaguars host the Titans at home. 

RB Rasheem Mostert

With Jerick McKinnon and Tevin Coleman out, the 49ers running back situation doesn’t look ideal, but somehow it’s working. In their game against the Bengals, Breida, the 49ers first string RB, had 12-121-0 on the ground with 1-11-0 receiving and Mostert, the current backup RB, had 13-82-0 rushing and 3-68-1 receiving. Breida is owned in most-all leagues so Mostert is a great option if you are in need of a flex player. The 49ers take on the Steelers in Week 3 who let up 151 rushing yards to the Seahawks this past weekend.

TE Will Dissly

Dissly is looking like the player we saw at the beginning of the 2018 season when he started his rookie season with 8-156-2 in 4 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Currently, Dissly is competing with Vannett for snaps at TE, but his Week 2 performance at the Steelers where he went 5-50-2 will definitely help him get red-zone snaps, which is huge. That’s not the only thing that’s going for him; he had some nice blocks to get/keep the run game going. The Seahawks play a tough Saints defense at home, but if Dissly can help get the run game going, he could see some opportunities for end-zone snaps.

Honorable Mention #1: WR James Washington

Although adding Washington right now is kind of a gamble, he’s a gamble that’s worth taking. He’s never really produced with Roethlisberger as the starter, but now that he is injured, Rudolph is the new starter for the Steelers. Him and Rudolph terrorized college secondaries; about 25% of Rudolph’s yards and touchdowns were to Washington when they played together at Oklahoma State. But no one is sure if Washington can translate that dominance from the college level to the professional level. 

Honorable Mention #2: Cowboys Offense

Start any Cowboy’s player you have on your roster (unless it’s Gallup because he’s injured). They play the Dolphins this week and they’ve allowed over 1,000 yards of offense and 102 points over 2 GAMES.
