Fantasy Football: Add

  1. Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks
    Chris Carson appears to have overtaken Thomas Rawls as the lead back. Rawls started, but managed just four yards on five attempts, while Carson gained 93 yards on 20 carries. Carson looked like Marshawn Lynch on a 16-yard run, bulldozing defenders in the process.

  2. Samaje Perine, RB, Redskins
    Samaje Perine will be one of the top adds this week, depending on Robert Kelley's diagnosis. Kelly suffered an injury, so Perine is the next man up.

  3. J.J. Nelson, WR, Cardinals
    With John Brown out, J.J. Nelson went nuts against the Colts. Nelson caught five passes for 120 yards and a touchdown.

  4. Buck Allen, RB, Ravens
    On the podcast, Kenny mentioned Buck Allen as a nice pick-up this week. Allen had 101 total yards and a touchdown against the Browns in Week 2. The Ravens run a committee, but Allen is the head of it.

  5. Jermaine Kearse, WR, Jets
    Jermaine Kearse is not an exciting option, but he's Josh McCown's favorite receiver, so he doesn't seem like a bad WR3/FLEX option.

Fantasy Football: Buy Low

Le'Veon Bell, RB, Steelers
Le'Veon Bell has opened the season with two clunkers. Try to snatch him away for value from a panicking fantasy owner.

Amari Cooper, WR, Raiders
Amari Cooper had a clunker (4-33) in a blowout, but he drew an interference flag in the end zone. The Raiders should get him more involved next week.

Isaiah Crowell, RB, Browns
Isaiah Crowell has struggled to start the year, but the Browns have some easier matchups coming up (Colts, Jets in two of the next three weeks).

A.J. Green, WR, Bengals
A.J. Green has struggled thus far like everyone else in Cincinnati's offense. The Bengals' line sucks, but the good news is that Cincinnati will battle softer defenses in the near future (Packers, Browns, Bills).

Joe Mixon, RB, Bengals
Joe Mixon has done nothing thus far, but it seems as though Marvin Lewis is moving toward making him the feature back. Mixon handled most of the workload late in the Thursday night game.

Fantasy Football: Sell High

Michael Crabtree, WR, Raiders
Michael Crabtree caught three touchdowns against the Jets in what will probably be his best game of the year. It's time to sell high.

Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs
Trading Kareem Hunt might seem crazy after two great games, but if you can get a first-round player for him, I'd do it. Hunt's value is never going to be as high as it is now, especially with Kansas City's center going down.

Fantasy Football: Ignore

Allen Hurns, WR, Jaguars
Allen Hurns is back! He's getting garbage-time stats again. The problem with this is that the Jaguars have a great defense, so garbage time will be less frequent. Hurns didn't even have a reception with two minutes remaining in the third quarter!

Fantasy Football: Drop

LeGarrette Blount, RB, Eagles
LeGarrette Blount didn't get a single carry in Kansas City.

Zay Jones, WR, Bills
It turns out that a rookie receiver in a mediocre passing attack isn't going to be very productive. Jones is still owned in 88 percent of ESPN leagues for some reason.

Eddie Lacy, RB, Packers
Eddie Lacy wasn't even active in Week 2.

Brandon Marshall, WR, Giants
Brandon Marshall is owned in 100 percent of fantasy leagues. Why!? He's done. He's been done since last year. He shouldn't be owned in any 12-team leagues.

Jordan Matthews, WR, Bills
There's no one worth owning in Buffalo's passing attack.
