The key to winning a fantasy football championship is roster management. Even if your draft doesn’t go as planned, you can make up ground by picking up free agents as unknown players gain value and star players injuries create instant starters. Here are the top 5 week 3 waiver wire pickups.
Top 5 Available Free Agents
#5. Brandon Jackson- RB Green Bay Packers
I wouldn’t drop anyone of importance to acquire Brandon Jackson, but if you have an empty spot I would consider Jackson as a decent pickup. Jackson had 61 yards on 7 carries and a TD against the Lions in week 2. Ryan Grant has been battling an injury, if you own Grant then keep an eye out on Jackson.
#4. John Carlson- TE Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks are desperate for receivers and Carlson has provided a pair of steady hands. Carlson has 10 catches and 130 yards over the first two games. If you are not lucky enough to have a Winslow, Gates, Gonzalez, Witten, or Scheffler, then add Carlson to your roster.
