By now in fantasy football, you know how good or bad your roster is and what position for waiver wire pickups you need. However, a majority of teams are in the middle and fighting for one of the playoff spots. It is always important to add as much talent to your fantasy lineup as possible and today we are going to take a deeper dive into three players to target.
There are a lot of people that are not rostered by a majority of fantasy football managers so let’s take a deeper dive into the waiver wire and discuss why we should be adding these three players.
Waiver Wire Pickups: Kyler Murray, QB (32.3% Rostered)
Kyler Murray is within his 21-day window to return to the 53-man roster of the Arizona Cardinals and they are going to let him play. In a league where there are not too many incredible quarterbacks, Kyler Murray has incredible upside for this team under first-year coach Jonathan Gannon.
Murray has the ability to run the football and can be able to throw the football with solid accuracy. He could not return until Week 10 but it should be worth it as you do not have two quarterbacks with higher upside than Kyler Murray.
Waiver Wire Pickups: Josh Downs, WR (35.3% Rostered)
Josh Downs is still a solid addition on the waiver wire, even after the season-ending injury to his quarterback Anthony Richardson. He has been doing well as he has six-plus targets in his previous three games and 95+ receiving yards in two of those games.
Typically I would suggest a cautious approach with rookies but Gardner Minshew under center did not ruin his target share and as a WR2 in the Colts lineup, he will have the opportunity to dominate and be a solid WR2/flex option for your fantasy lineup.
Waiver Wire Pickups: Dalton Kincaid, TE (36.9% Rostered)
Dalton Kincaid is going to see a significant increase in the Buffalo Bills offense as Dawson Knox suffered a wrist injury that requires surgery. Even before that, Kincaid is third in receiving yards for the Bills as he has 25 receptions on 27 targets for 193 yards (7.7 yards per catch) but has not found the end zone. Coming off an eight-reception game against the New England Patriots, this will be something to monitor as good tight ends are difficult to come by here.
