Week 3 All Waiver Wire Team

Last week was pretty solid for the waiver wire team, but this week will be even better. Just like last week, you have to be at or below 10% ownership on Yahoo! to qualify (and I don't think Andre Roberts will be available this week).

QB - Blaine Gabbert - There is a surprising amount of equality amongst quarterbacks this season, and after picking Gabbert to be a top-10 QB in week 1, I completely left him off my list in Week 2. This week he is back, and while I would rather start Matt Cassel (16%), Gabbert should be a solid play this week. He should score about 15th overall.

RB1 - Shaun Draughn - With Charles aching, Draughn should continue to see some sort of production this week. Draughn might be the biggest unimportant surprise of the season. Who knew that Draughn would be the leading fantasy scorer of the Kansas City running backs at this point in the season? With the limited points from that team in general, it isn't a difficult thing to do.

RB2 - Bernard Scott - I'm not a huge fan of Scott, but he should see a few carries this week against Washington. The Bengals offense has been pretty lackluster to this point despite the success of their running game. Hopefully Scott can help create a better screen game to slow down the pass rush and give Dalton time to find Green down the field.

WR1 - Andre Roberts - I was wrong, Roberts is still available and should be worth a few more points this week. He is one of the favorite targets in Arizona.

WR2 - Ramses Barden - This Giants receiver is being bumped up into the starting role tonight and should be good for a few fantasy points. The Carolina defense is much worse than their offense, so Eli Manning should be throwing the ball to keep up.

FLEX - Julian Edleman - The Patriots are putting Edleman on the field more and more. He might not break the game open for you, but he will probably score more than Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones, or Dez Bryant did last week.

K - Blair Walsh - The 49ers aren't going to let the Vikings get far into field goal range. Good thing the Vikings aren't afraid of giving Walsh shots at 50 yard field goals. He has two already this season...and the league is 13-16 at large. Incredible.

DEF - Washington - They allow points but generate turnovers. WHy not try (The loss of two dominant defenders hurts them).
