- FANFOOD GET & FORGET week 3- 

 

 

The next edition of the FANFOOD GET & FORGET will be about the players that may be sitting there as FAs. Every year there are players that will emerge off the fantasy football waiver wire to be solid additions for a fantasy football team. Good work on the waiver wire involves knowing who is on the radar just before their stock goes through the roof after a huge game or a string of solid starts. Every Tuesday we will sift through the noise and point out some players that you should GET & the ones you can FORGET.

 

Here are ALL the 2013 FANFOOD GET & FORGETs

 

PRESEASON :

QB | RB | WR | TE | DST | 30-Late |

RB Handcuffs |

 

SEASON:

| week 1 |

week 2 |

| week  3 |

Lets get to it!

 

This could be a tough week for Fantasy owners following several injuries to prominent running backs. It will lead to a lot of moves on the waiver wire. We could be without Ray Rice (hip), Steven Jackson (thigh), Maurice Jones-Drew (ankle) and Eddie Lacy (concussion) after they all got injured in Week 2. Bernard Pierce should be the No. 1 priority to add if he’s available

 

Here are some free agents that we think you should GET and ones you need to FORGET as we move into week 3 of the season, followed by a recipe for Grilled Chicken Koftas

 

 

 

GET

Bernard Pierce

From rotoworld:

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed the Ravens are ready to ride Bernard Pierce if Ray Rice (hip) sits out Week 3. Rice is very questionable for Sunday’s matchup against the Texans. The Ravens could rest him knowing that they have a legit special backup in Pierce. “He’s becoming a complete back,” Harbaugh said. “We’re just very fortunate to have him on our team.” Through two NFL seasons, Pierce has averaged 4.49 YPC while flashing a wicked stiff arm and serious juice through the hole. He’ll be a RB2 if Rice is inactive. Bernard Pierce should be 100 percent owned because he has standalone value even when Ray Rice is healthy. Since Week 16 of last season, Pierce has averaged 12.8 carries for 61.6 yards a day (including playoffs). And if Rice misses time with this hip issue, Pierce will be a top-12 running back play weekly.

FANFOOD Says: Should be owned in all leagues

 

FORGET

Brandon Jacobs

From rotoworld:

Brandon Jacobs came off the street and immediately assumed all short-yardage and goal-line duties for the Giants. The result in Week 2 was seven carries for four yards with one touchdown on 14 snaps. He did get a little work between the 20s, but the Giants have to see that this 31-year-old is not the answer. If they want to spark their running game, giving David Wilson more snaps than the 24 he saw against the Broncos is the answer. Also, Andre Brown (leg) will be back in Week 10 to take back the goal-line job.

GET

James Starks

From rotoworld:

There was a time not too long ago when James Starks was thought of as the Packers’ savior at running back. But constant injuries coupled with the emergence of DuJuan Harris and the selection of Eddie Lacy shattered that dream. Now Starks is 100 percent healthy, fresh off the best training camp of his career and the clear No. 2 back in Green Bay. When Lacy went down with a concussion on his first carry against the Redskins Sunday, Starks responded with 20 carries for 132 yards and a touchdown to go with four catches for 36 yards. He handles himself well on third downs (John Kuhn is nursing a hamstring injury) and can get a little more than what’s blocked. The bad news for Starks is that the Packers have a tough matchup at Cincy in Week 3 and then have a bye in Week 4. It’s likely Lacy will be back and starting by Week 5, leaving Starks with mostly handcuff appeal. He’s not worth reaching too far for.

FORGET

Andre Ellington

From fantasy sharks:

Some mild success on the field and the coach’s praise has Ellington as a solid pickup this week. He has established himself as the No. 2 running back for Arizona, providing some excitement as a change of pace from Rashard Mendenhall. Six touches in week two, including a touchdown catch and run is the start, he’s worth a grab especially for those Mendenhall owners.

FANFOOD Says: Forget in 12-team leagues, consider in 14-team leagues.

 

GET

Andre Roberts

From rotoworld:

There’s no reason Andre Roberts’ ownership numbers should be so low. As discussed in last week’s Waiver Wired, the No. 3 wideout in a Bruce Arians offense almost always has value. And now that Larry Fitzgerald is nursing a hamstring injury, Roberts is getting even more looks. He led the Cardinals in targets with eight in Week 2 and gets another plus matchup at New Orleans in Week 3.

FORGET

Robert Woods

From rotoballer:

This is the third week in a row that I’m mentioning a rookie WR to pickup and this week I’m recommending Robert Woods. Why? Buffalo is running a no huddle offense and is needing a #2 punch after Stevie Johnson, and Woods has taken that spot. So far he’s produced one TD a week. Keep in mind he’s a rookie and will have up and down weeks but his value will increase through the year which should make him a nice pickup for deeper leagues.

GET

Coby Fleener

From rotoworld:

I highlighted Coby Fleener in Favorite Fliers back in August and again in Week 1 Waiver Wired. At this point, everyone should know that he was the tight end for Andrew Luck/Pep Hamilton at Stanford and plays the flex tight end spot in the Colts base “12” formation. What’s different now is that with Dwayne Allen (hip) sidelined and Darrius Heyward-Bey (shoulder) in doubt, Fleener is getting a bigger chance. He responded with four catches for 69 yards with a touchdown against the Dolphins and had another TD called back by a penalty away from the play. Fleener played on 61-of-73 Week 2 snaps (83.5 percent) and 42-of-57 (73.6 percent) in Week 1. He’s going to be a featured player for Luck.

FORGET

Kendall Wright

From rotoworld:

The Titans have surprisingly hung tough in two straight games (at Pittsburgh, at Houston) with a run-heavy attack. That won’t last all year, making Wright a reasonable stash. Although he’s playing fewer snaps than Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, Wright is actually running almost as many pass routes as the starters. When he’s on the field, the Titans are throwing and looking to get him the ball. Wright will be worth a look in deep formats when we can project Tennessee to be losing. That will certainly be the case in Week 6 and 7 when they are at Seattle and home vs. San Francisco.

BONUS

 

GET

 

New York Jets

From rotoworld:

We have some evidence that this Jets front seven might be really good. They held Doug Martin to 65 yards on 24 carries in Week 1 and then limited Stevan Ridley to 40 yards on 16 carries in Week 2. Now they get to face a Buffalo team at home that has turned the ball over four times already this season.

From fantasy knuckleheads:

Sunday’s battle between long-time rivals Buffalo and New York actually provides two appealing options for owners who wish to scan their waiver wires for defensive units. The Jets’ renovated unit has been particularly impressive, even though they have six new defensive starters, and are forging onward without the services of Darrelle Revis. They appear to be gelling swiftly, as gaining yardage against them has been an equally arduous task via the air, or the ground. First they limited Doug Martin to 65 rushing yards in their opener, then they held Tom Brady to less than 200 yards for the first time since 2011 in Week 2. They currently rank second in total defense, and are allowing just 241 YPG. Not only do they rank an impressive sixth versus the pass (181.5 YPG), but their outstanding run defense is fourth overall, surrendering a mere 59.5 YPG. The Jets have also permitted just 30 points after their battles with the Buccaneers and Patriots, and should keep scoring to a minimum for the Bills. The Jets have the personnel to neutralize Buffalo’s 23rd ranked passing attack, and create havoc for E. J. Manuel. The far more intriguing aspect of the matchup will involve C. J. Spiller’s attempts to navigate through the Jets’ stingy run stoppers. However, Gang Green has demonstrated enough in their first two encounters to believe that Spiller will be forced to earn ever yard. The Jets are still available in nearly 96% of all ESPN leagues, deserve strong consideration for this week’s matchup, and have the potential to become a locked-in weekly start.
