Fantasy Football Waiver Pickups

Danny Woodhead is a threat in PPR leagues

QB: Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins (9.5 % owned)

The Dolphins are 3-0 for the first time in over a decade, and Tannehill has been a huge factor in their early success. The second-year quarterback has posted solid numbers and is averaging over 275 yards per game through the air. Tannehill isn’t an ideal starting quarterback in standard leagues, but should serve as one of the better backups in the league.

RB: Danny Woodhead, San Diego Chargers (12.9 % owned)

If you play in a points per reception league and Woodhead is on your waiver wire, he should be your number one target this week. Woodhead, AKA, “The Little Engine That Could”, has racked up 15 catches over the past two weeks, and his role on offense should only expand from here. If Ryan Mathews continues to struggles for the Bolts, Woodhead will snatch up more and more snaps.

WR: Ryan Broyles, Detroit Lions (1 % owned)

Now that Nate Burleson has been lost for the season, Broyles is the next man up in Detroit. He's coming off of a torn ACL last season, but if Broyles can stay healthy, he's in line for a lot of targets. Detroit has been searching for a secondary option to Calvin Johnson for years now, Broyles has the talent to be that guy.

WR: Stephen Hill, New York Jets (2.8 % owned)

Hill has looked progressively better in each of the Jets’ three games this season, and that’s about all you can ask for from a second-year player. Hill is averaging 97 yards per game over the team’s past two contests, and is developing strong chemistry with Geno Smith. He shouldn’t be starting in anything but deep leagues at this point, but that will change if Hill stays consistent, which has been a major problem so far in his career.

TE: Charles Clay, Miami Dolphins (14.1 % owned)

He should have already been picked up after his breakout performance last week, but Clay is still available in over 85 percent of ESPN leagues, and can help out owners in need of a tight end. Clay recorded five catches in each of the Dolphins first two games, and four catches in Week 3, so his workload appears pretty steady going forward. He doesn’t have a ton of upside, but the former-fullback will make for a good bye-week replacement at worst.
