Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

Looking for some reinforcements on your fantasy team? Here are some players to pick up off the waiver wire for Week 3:

Corey Clement-RB (Philadelphia Eagles)

Corey Clement stepped in for Jay Ajayi after he injured his lower back on Sunday. He managed to rush for 30 yards on six carries and caught five receptions for 55 yards. The Eagles running backs are tough to count on because the offense is based heavily on run-pass options. With that being said, Clement seems to be a great pass-catching option out of the backfield and the Eagles get Carson Wentz back in week 3. Keep an eye on Jay Ajayi’s status throughout the week. If he is down, Clement will be up.

Antonio Callaway, Rashard Higgins-WR (Cleveland Browns)

Josh Gordon is no longer the guy in Cleveland after being shipped to New England for a draft pick. So, who will step up? On Sunday, both of these guys played big for the Browns. Callaway pulled in four targets and corralled what was almost the game-winning touchdown for the Browns. Higgins caught five passes on seven targets. Tyrod Taylor is looking for these guys in the passing game and with Jarvis Landry’s knee hurting, I think he will continue to find them.

Austin Ekeler-RB (Los Angeles Chargers)

Up until now, Ekeler has outperformed Melvin Gordon on the stat sheet. Ekeler has 116 yards rushing and 108 yards receiving. Gordon has some type of upper body injury. There is no indication as to how serious the injury is, but if Gordon is out for some time, Ekeler will be a good fill in. If your in need of a running back, give Ekeler a long look because he has put up RB2 numbers with limited snaps.

Dan Bailey-K (Minnesota Vikings)

Kicking didn’t come easy on Sunday and there may be a couple of kickers jobless this week. The second most accurate kicker in NFL history Dan Bailey is signing with the Minnesota Vikings.  He will be a plug and play player if your able to pick him up on waivers.

Taywan Taylor-WR (Tennessee Titans)

Taywan Taylor got a chance to show his speed and agility on Sunday against the Texans. He has potential to be a gadget player in the Tennessee offense. As long as he is healthy he will move his way up the Titans depth chart. Taylor should mostly be considered in deeper and dynasty leagues. With the QB carousel going on in Tennessee, he may not provide consistent enough production in the near-future to be a fixture in your fantasy lineup.
