Locked On Fantasy Football host Vinnie Iyer gave several players you should be targeting on your league’s waiver wire this week.
Chuba Hubbard, RB, Carolina Panthers
Week 3 points:10.9
Ownership %: 18.7%
Iyer: “He's a clear top target with Christian McCaffrey's hamstring injury sidelining him for a little while."
Peyton Barber, RB, Las Vegas Raiders
Week 3 points: 23.2
Ownership %: 9.7%
Iyer: "Barber has proved to be a busy fill-in for Josh Jacobs, playing ahead of Kenyan Drake in key situations for Las Vegas."
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Buffalo Bills
Week 3 points: 26.4
Ownership %: 24.7%
Jakobi Meyers, WR, New England Patriots
Week 3 points: 18.4
Ownership %: 58.7%
Iyer: “Sanders and Meyers look like big enough parts of their team's passing games to be solid reserve options for your bench."
Taylor Heinicke, QB, Washington Football Team
Week 3 points: 21.38
Ownership %: 4.8%
Zach Wilson, QB, New York Jets
Week 3 points: 2.60
Ownership %: 5.7%
Iyer: "If you're streaming quarterbacks from week to week, take a look at Washington's Taylor Heinicke this week against the Falcons, and the Jets' Zach Wilson with his easiest matchup thus far as a rookie against the Titans, as sneaky options this week.
Tyler Conklin, TE, Minnesota Vikings
Week 3 points: 20.00
Ownership %: 3.3%
Austin Hooper, TE, Cleveland Browns
Week 3 points: 9.90
Ownership %: 47.5%
