Week 3 Pickups: Top Targets Likely Still on Fantasy Waiver Wires
Washington Redskins receiver Leonard Hankerson is one of the players still on the waiver wire who has earned a roster spot in fantasy leagues everywhere with his play through the first two games.
There are still plenty of players on the waiver wire who can make impacts on fantasy teams, so take a look to see who is available in your league.
These will be worth starts when your normal starters have bye weeks or unfavorable matchups.
Let's take a look at who fantasy owners need to consider adding.
Philip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers (Owned in 31.9 Percent of ESPN Leagues)
Most fantasy owners have given up on Philip Rivers, but he has been putting up big numbers this season.
The 31-year-old has thrown for 614 yards in two games. He has thrown for seven touchdowns compared to only one interception, so he has been making good decisions this year.
Rivers has posted 51 fantasy points through two games, including a 29-point performance against the Philadelphia Eagles. He completed 76.6 percent of his passes in the game, and he has been extremely efficient this season.
The 10-year veteran has earned a roster spot with his play through two weeks.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers (Owned in 2.5 Percent of ESPN Leagues)
It may have just been one game, but James Starks put on a show against the Washington Redskins in Week 2. He replaced Lacy and ran for 132 with a score on 20 carries. It marked the first time in 44 games, or since 2010, that the Packers had a player rush for 100 yards in a game.
Starks was able to record 22 points in ESPN leagues last week.
The 27-year-old has always been a productive player when called upon, but now he might be asked to receive the majority of the carries. He has the talent to make plays and could be a factor near the goal line.
Leonard Hankerson, WR, Washington Redskins (Owned in 15.9 Percent of ESPN Leagues)
Washington has not been competitive in either of its first two games, but Hankerson has been a bright spot.
He has been the beneficiary of his team getting blown out and needing to throw the football. Robert Griffin III has needed his receivers to make plays as he has tried to lead big comebacks.
Hankerson has 115 receiving yards and two touchdowns on eight receptions. He has put up 23 points in two weeks.
The 24-year-old has been a big playmaker for Griffin. As Washington gets into a rhythm on offense, Hankerson should continue to see more passes thrown his way.
