Waiver wire for week #3

Here are your waiver wire pick ups for the week!!

#1 Andre Brown, RB, NYG
Andre Brown came in last Sunday when Ahmad Bradshaw left due to a sprained neck. Brown ran for 71 yards on 13 carries and saw pay dirt once!!! How serious is this injury to bradshaw?? We still don't know but it seems like coach Coughlin has more trust in Brown then in rookie David Wilson!! Andre Brown is no fluke. He had some nice stats when he was the #1 RB at NC St. Brown is listed at 6 feet and 227 lbs - your prototypical size for a RB!!!

#2 Daryl Richardson, RB, STL
Richardson's name was called upon by Jeff Fisher when Steven Jackson suffered an "injury". I don't buy it...I personally think Fisher pulled Jackson out!! It's clear that Jackson has lost a lot of speed and this is what Richardson offers is speed!! A 6th round pick in last April's draft from Abilene Christian, Richardson is clearly #2 on the depth chart so if you own Steven Jackson it would be a wise move to handcuff yourself!!

#3Lamar Miller, RB, MIA
Miller is clearly better then 2nd year RB Daniel Thomas so if u own Reggie Bush, go pick up Miller!! Miller was a 4th round pick in last spring's draft but a lot of experts had him mocked in the first 2 rounds!! The upside is there, 5 foot 10, 218 LBS with speed and fluidity!! I'm high on miller, loved what he did at the university of Miami but problem here is he is on one crappy team!! The Dolphins have nothing on offense besides Bush and Miller!

Here are a few other sleeper pick ups: Leonard Hankerson, WR, WASH. Hankerson is a 6 foot 3 wide so he can grab long balls tossed his way and we all know by now that RG3 can throw the deep ball and with Josh Morgan's brain cramp from last Sunday, it might of just opened the door for Hankerson to see more playing time!!

If you own Wes Welker on your fantasy team, I suggest you go pick up Julian Edelman or at least monitor this Sundays game vs the Ravens very carefully. There's a situation going on in Foxboro and it seems like the Pats are fading Welker out of their plans!! Why you may ask?? Welker is on a 1-year contract and was looking for an extension this summer and never got it.... The Patriots staff are figuering out if they can live without Welker on their team. The next few weeks will indicate it to all fans!!

Bryce Brown! Who you may ask?? Brown was the #1 ranked RB out of high school a few years ago, was recruited by Lane Kiffin at Tennessee!! When Kiffin left, Brown wanted out and transferred to Kansas St. Brown was drafted in the 7th round which to me was a brilliant move. Brown outperformed Chris Polk in training camp, was listed as the #3 RB but Andy Reid has came out and stated that Brown is ahead of second year back Dion Lewis!! Again, if you own Shady McCoy, go get Brown NOW!!!! I picked up Brown and I don't even own McCoy on my team. I just think this kid is loaded with upside and talent!!

If you are looking for receivers and Hankerson is already gone and you dont buy into the Welker-Pats situation, then I suggest you take a look at Rod Streater of the Raiders if you're in a 12 man league, speedy TY Hilton of the Colts, slot receiver Andrew Hawkins of the Bengals, but in his case, his targets fell from 9 in week 1 to 3 in week 2 so this is where I tell you to look at Armon Binns who had 5 targets last Sunday!! Binns was one of the top receivers in the NCAA at the university of Cincy 2 years ago and you can also take a long look at Andre Roberts of the Arizona Cardinals, but I don't feel comfortable with Kolb or Skelton throwing the rock to him!!!

At the TE position, if Baltimore Ravens Dennis Pitta is still available and you need to upgrade that position or replace Aaron Hernandez for 6 weeks, grab him now because this is your guy. You should feel lucky if he's still available!! Also keep an eye on Kellen Winslow who just signed with the Pats today. But Winslow has shot knees and is clearly not the same player he once was!!

These are the top position players you should be looking at for this week.
