Week 2 of the season will finish with a Sunday night game, and a Monday night doubleheader. But it’s not to early to look at potential Week 3 for fantasy football roster reinforcements off the waiver wire.
Here are nine must-adds from your Week 3 fantasy football waiver wire.
Kyren Williams, RB, Los Angeles Rams
Williams had 15 carries for 52 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1, as he got the majority of the work in the Rams’ backfield before Cam Akers evened things out in the fourth quarter. With Akers inactive on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, and seemingly on the outs with the team again, Williams commandeered the workload and he produced (14 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown, six catches-on 10 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown).
There is now no one in the way of Williams’ being the Rams’ lead back, barring an outside signing of a veteran with Akers likely on his way out once and for all, and their offense has looked solid through two games.
Williams was a top fantasy waiver wire add last week, but he’s still available in plenty of leagues. It’s at least worth checking to see if he’s available in yours, and making a move to add him if he is.
