Week 3 in fantasy football is almost set to launch and so with that in mind here are some of the key names who should be added to rosters.

Kirk Cousins:  Finally we get an extended look at Cousins in this potentially explosive Washington Redskins passing offense.  Cousins lit things up in place of RGIII last week in throwing for two scores and his pocket passing ability make him a much better fit in Jay Gruden's offense. 

Knile Davis:  With Jamaal Charles hobbled for the next 4-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain, Davis moves into the starting running back role for the Chiefs.  Davis has potentially potent PPR value due to his ability to both catch and run the football and he could be a top ten guy during Charles' absence from the lineup.

Donald Brown:  Ryan Matthews injured the MCL in his knee which will cost him the next 4-5 weeks.  Up steps old friend Brown who frustrated a lot while he was with the Colts but who did his best work during his final season there.  Brown will get almost all of the running opportunities while Matthews is out so especially in standard formats this is one guy to target strongly.

Ahmad Bradshaw:  If Bradshaw still happens to be sitting on your league's waiver wire, do yourself a favor and pick him up pronto.  Bradshaw has become a key outlet receiver for QB Andrew Luck, having caught three touchdowns passes during the first two games of the season.  While Trent Richardson will get half the rushing totals, those in PPR formats need to take advantage of Bradshaw's burgeoning rapport with Luck.

Khiry Robinson:  Yet another running back injury takes down Mark Ingram for the next month with a broken hand as the speedy Robinson gets the starting reigns.  Robinson won't do much in the passing game which is the domain of Pierre Thomas but his big-time speed and facing soft defensive fronts puts him in prime position to succeed.

Bobby Rainey:  While Doug Martin could make his return this Thursday, Rainey deserves to continue getting looks in the running game off his 144-yard effort last Sunday.  Also if Martin continues to struggle, the job could soon be his outright.

Brian Quick:  The Rams passing game looks to be one big mess with their top two QB's out but Brian Quick has managed 14 catches in two games which is a terrific tally worthy of any roster.

Delanie Walker:  Walker always seems to fall through the cracks each season for more flashy tight end names but his 10-catch game in Week 2 is a reminder of how potent he could be.  Walker already is looking like QB Jake Locker's favorite target and with big names Jordan Cameron, Vernon Davis, and Jason Witten off to injured or slow starts, he makes the perfect fill-in option.

Mohamud Sanu:  With A.J. Green out with a foot injury, Sanu moves into the number 1 receiving spot for the Cincinnati Bengals.  Sanu has big-play ability that he showed in Week 2 in place of Green and he should be able to continue that type of work until his counterpart gets back.

San Diego Chargers:  The Chargers defense has been very good so far through two games and they get a Buffalo Bills squad that always has trouble putting points on the board.

  1. Got offered Terrance West for Zach Ertz

    I have Jimmy Graham at TE, Ertz on bench (no TE flex splot)
    RB are weak: Tate, Jones-Drew, Jocquie Bell

    Should I take the deal or flip Ertz for something better?
