We're starting to get in the groove of the season. If you've lost a couple games so far, just remember, it's still early! Injuries are still piling up, and bye weeks will be starting soon. Let's take a look deep into the waiver wire for some guys that will help make a difference in the coming weeks.
Quarterback: Jared Goff
Jared Goff had a solid day against a good Buffalo secondary, and he didn't even use all of his weapons. Tyler Higbee was nonexistent for a majority of the game, but Goff started to gain traction with his receivers. Kupp, Woods, and even Josh Reynolds all stepped up and had big plays. Going up against an average Giants secondary, I expect Goff to build on this performance and carry the momentum back home to LA.
Running Back: Carlos Hyde
Seattle is a dangerous team. Their air attack is on a historic pace right now, but Pete Carroll will never shy away from running the ball. With Chris Carson expected to miss time with a knee sprain, I expect Carlos Hyde to have a majority of the touches out of the backfield, and going up against the Dolphins, he could have a big day. Not only does Hyde run the ball well, but he is also a weapon of catching the ball out of the backfield. In PPR leagues, he could be the guy that brings you over the edge for a victory in week 4.
Wide Receiver: Nelson Agholor
I know we don't want any Raiders player to do well this upcoming week, but after this performance this past week against the Rams, I expect Gruden to try and take advantage of this Bills secondary on their heels. Agholor will be the main target in the WR room this week with Bryan Edwards and Henry Ruggs sidelined with injuries. With a lot of attention expected to be put on Darren Waller, Agholor could have a solid fantasy day.
Tight End: Mo Alie-Cox
The Colts Tight End has been going strong the past two weeks, with 14+ fantasy points in the past 2 games. Philip Rivers has been known to throw to the tight end in his career, and this year has been no exception. Even with Jack Doyle being healthy, Alie-Cox has stepped up to be a game changer in the Colts offense. This week, he is going up against a Bears defense who has allowed touchdowns to tight ends in the past 2 games.
Defense/Special Teams: Denver Broncos
Every season, there's one team that you always want to grab the opposing defense. This year, it's becoming the Jets. The Jets had a terrible day against the Colts, and their bad luck will continue this week. The Broncos will be looking to redeem themselves after a poor showing against the Buccaneers. This quick turnaround is normally not favorable for offenses, and the Broncos will come out swinging early and often.
Kicker: Stephen Hauschka
A name all Bills fans love, Hauschka just recently signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars to be the teams starting kicker after Josh Lambo went on IR. The Jags are going up against the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Bengals defense has been know to let up some big plays. This could line up well with a streaky Jags offense. Hauschka could see some opportunities for field goals and extra points this week.
Homer Pick of the Week: Gabriel Davis
I know I picked Davis in Week 1, but with John Brown being Questionable with a calf/foot injury, Davis showed last week that he can be a consistent target down the field. He showed his separation, foot work, and ability to get some yards after the catch. If Brown is unable to go on Sunday, expect Davis to start on the outside opposite of Diggs.
