Already we are looking toward Week 3 in fantasy football and so here are the prime pickups.


Trevor Siemian:  If he wasn't picked up prior to Week 2, the scorching Siemian should be added pronto as he is now up to 6 touchowns in just two games.  Having showcased some big accuracy and terrific timing, Siemian is worth adding on his potent receivers alone.

Jay Cutler:  Yeah him again.  Cutler looked pretty good once the training wheels were taken off at halftime of his team's win over the San Diego Chargers.  Cutler himself has two prime targets in Jarvis Landry and Devante Parker and he gets a leaky New York Jets defense in Week 3.

Chris Carson:  My last pick in the Experts League draft was this emerging rookie for the Seattle Seahawks.  With Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy, and C.J. Prosise unable to produce and stay healthy, Cason ran 20 times for 93 yards in Week 2.  Adept at also catching the football, Carson has big RB 2 potential.

Darren Sproles:  Despite the ageless Sproles saying this is his last NFL season, the Philadelphia Eagles are apparently going to ride him hard as he got 44 snaps Sunday.  Always an electric runner/receiver, Sproles is a must own in all PPR formats at the very least.

Chris Johnson:  With Kerwyn Williams already showing he should not be an NFL starting running back, it is up to old veteran Chris Johnson to carry the load.  While the old pure speed is a thing of the past, Johnson is still adept and quick enough to be worth a RB 3 add.

Chris Thompson/Samaje Perine:  With Rob Kelley dealing with a broken rib, it will fall to Thompson (receiving) and Perine (running) to pick up the slack.

Danny Amendola: With Amendola ready to return in Week 3, it looks like he will go back to the slot where he had a monster Game 1.

J.J. Nelson:  I am not as high on Nelson as others since John Brown may return in Week 3 but there is no doubt he has some WR 4 skills.

Evan Engram:  With the slew of tight end injuries diluting the position in Week 2, the very athletic Engram is worth picking up.  I think Engram has the chance to be a very good top-level receiving tight end and soon.

Miami Defense:  Yes they draw the New York Jets.  That's all you need to know.
