Waiver Wire Express - Week 3 Lightning Round

Week 2 solidified some waiver-wire adds as more than flashes in the pan, while other Week 1 studs followed that up with a flop. Whether you're coasting towards an easy 2-0 start, in the thick of it at 1-1 or up against it with an 0-2 team, you never stop improving. Stay tuned as injury updates roll in. In the interest of getting you the most timely information for planning, consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 3.

This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.

Waiver pickups are listed in priority order and broken down by position. Players must be owned in roughly less than 60% of Yahoo leagues and therefore will range from shallow options in standard leagues to deep options in PPR formats.
