While overreaction still runs rampant throughout the fantasy world, the Week 3 waiver wire become a lot more important for those dealing with injuries. While I shouldn’t be surprised to be talking about injuries this early in the season, it’s still not fun to do and a bit of a buzzkill considering how many big names have gone down with just two games behind us.
Eddie Lacy owners are holding out hope he’ll be able to play through the ankle injury he suffered in Week 2, but if he can’t go, James Starks may be sitting on your waiver wire, although he shouldn’t be if the Lacy owner played things the right way coming out of the draft.
The wide receiver and tight end positions don’t yield many exciting options with two weeks in the books, but you can get more than just short-term solutions at those spots and a couple of names flying under the radar.
As always, I preach diligence on the waiver wire no matter what your record. If you get too complacent with your roster management, the major injuries can cause bigger problems than you’re able to handle. Massage those rosters if you want to be in it at the end.
