Week 3 starts/sits, plus more waiver options

Waivers have cleared, so now you have a better idea of how you’re going to be setting your lineup for Week 3. Depending on your luck, you could be in a solid position to win. Or, you just lost any combination of Ameer Abdullah, Danny Woodhead, Adrian Peterson, Jonathan Stewart or Doug Martin. Nasty. The fantasy gods are don’t want anyone to enjoy their season.

Here are some deep sleepers and possible waiver pickups that are still available that you should consider for Week 3.

DET RB Dwayne Washington

We don’t know exactly how things are going to shake out yet with Ameer Abdullah out for the year, but Dwayne Washington could be the best add in this whole RB mess if he slides into the Abdullah spot and Theo Riddick continues his work on passing downs. Washington looks like the complete back Detroit’s been looking for. Don’t worry about Zach Zenner taking touches from those two. In fact, he may be cut.

WAS RB Chris Thompson

If you’re desperate at RB, like so many are, and you also happen to be in a PPR league, Chris Thompson is worth stashing now, and playing in certain leagues immediately. There’s a reason why Washington loves him so much, and it’s for his pass protection. It’s sexy.

How can you deny this?

He saw less work Week 2, but still had 4 targets and can get work done in space.
