Every week that passes by in the NFL season, the more and more information we receive about players. While week 1 offered up its own narratives, week 2 either contradicts or confirms what we witnessed before. In this article, we give actionable advice based on that information, namely which players you should roster and which ones you should let go. Here is Add / Drop Week 3
Top 5 Adds
Unlike last week where we went 10 players deep, we will be going with 5 players from now on. That first week is always a crazy waiver wire run with so many potentially useful players for fantasy. Here are the highest priority players who are available in more than 50% of leagues.
RB Darwin Thompson – Chiefs
RB depth is very important for fantasy football success. That is why I am advising to pick up a 3rd-string RB. That and the high powered Chiefs offense. With both Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy slightly banged up, the chances of Darwin Thompson seeing the field are on the rise. If Thompson ever gets a big share of the RB workload, then he can become a valuable commodity for fantasy.
WR Demarcus Robinson – Chiefs
Keeping with the Chiefs theme, Demarcus Robinson may actually be a better add than his teammate Thompson. Robinson played in 95% of Kansas City’s offensive snaps and managed to haul in all 6 of his targets for 172 yards and 2 TD. He is beginning to establish himself as the #3 target on this team, at least until the receiving corps gets healthier. For now, Robinson should not only be picked up but also in your starting lineups.
WR Anthony Miller – Bears
Anthony Miller was dealing with a shoulder injury as the 2019 season started. That lingered into week 1 and forced Miller to play in only 22% of offensive snaps. In that contest, he was held without a catch as he could not reel in his only target. During week 2, he more than doubled his time on the field by playing in 52% of snaps. Still, he only received 1 target which he fortunately caught. As Miller gets over his shoulder injury, expect him to eat into Taylor Gabriel‘s playing time and take his place as the Bears #2 target. Playing Washington next week, grab Miller now before his inevitable production increase.

WR Nelson Agholor – Eagles
This addition has a lot to do with injuries as both Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson left the Eagles week 2 contest with injuries. We are not yet sure how severe these injuries are, but we do know that Nelson Agholor will be one of the main beneficiaries if either of his teammates misses time. Agholor played 96% of the snaps and saw 2 red-zone targets in week 2. Look for him to be top 2 on the team in targets, at least until Jeffery and Jackson resume playing. Monitor this situation.
TE Will Disley – Seahawks
The battle for top TE on the Seahawks appears to be going in Will Dissly‘s favor. So far through 2 weeks, he has been on the field more than Nick Vannett. Disley is also the only Seahawk other than Chris Carson to receive a red zone target, an especially important stat for TEs who are so TD dependent. He could be a great add in advance of a potential shootout with the Saints in week 3.
Top 5 Drops
While some of these players may have some use later in the season, I would not keep them on my team at the expense of the players that were just mentioned as adds.
Ep 114: Aaron Rodgers, OBJ, and The New York Jets
by Full Press Coverage on March 25, 2023 at 12:09 am
RB Tevin Coleman – 49ers
RB depth is important, so I do not want to just dismiss a potential lead back because of injury. The difficulty with Tevin Coleman is seeing a lead back role once he does return. With Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson all contributing to the team’s Week 2 victory, it is a crowded backfield, to say the least. The other issue is the number of games that Coleman may miss. While nothing has been confirmed, this is a difficult time of year to have an injured player take up a roster spot, especially when his upside is limited by an RB committee once he returns.
RB Jordan Howard – Eagles
For 2 weeks in a row Jordan Howard has been 3rd on the Eagles in RB playing time. In both contests, Howard saw less than 25% of the offensive snaps. The one aspect that could have salvaged his fantasy value was having the goal-line work to himself. However, the RB red zone work through 2 weeks has been split exactly 1/3 – 1/3 – 1/3 between Howard and his teammates Miles Sanders and Darren Sproles. In fact, it was Sanders who took both carries inside the 5-yard line during week 1. While Howard may be worth a hold in deeper leagues, you should have no fear of dropping him in shallower formats.
RB Nyheim Hines – Colts
My love of RB depth is being tested here. While I am all for hanging on to RBs who have a solid role, Nyheim Hines is unfortunately not part of that group. Good news on Hines is that he was targeted 6 times through the first 2 weeks of the NFL season. Bad news, he only gained 9 yards off of 5 catches. Even worse, he saw his snap share dimish from 27% in week 1 to 19% in week 2 as Marlon Mack is becoming a workhorse. Like Jordan Howard, he is worth holding onto in deep leagues, but that is not the case with a shallow bench.
WR Donte Moncrief – Steelers
It feels fair to drop someone who has dropped so many passes already this season. Donte Moncrief only has 3 receptions on the year, on 11 targets. In week 2 he saw his snap share reduced from 90% to 32% as both James Washington and Diontae Johnson were on the field more often. Furthermore, with Big Ben’s season-ending injury this offense as a whole may suffer. Everything is trending down with Moncrief, so feel free to set him free.
TE Jimmy Graham – Packers
Jimmy Graham actually had a decent week 1 performance by catching a TD. There were some good signs in week 2 such as an increase to a 72% snap count. However, he failed to catch either of his 2 targets and currently has a 43% catch rate on the season. Yes, it is a small sample size, but blocking has been a part of his role with the team. Great for the Packers, not so good for fantasy. With a much easier matchup against the Broncos upcoming, Green Bay may not look his way as they continue to expand the Aaron Rodgers relationship with his young WRs. From a TE streaming perspective, I would much rather have Will Disley right now.
