Week 3's in the books, and hopefully you're off to a good start.  Some players I listed last week might still available in your league:  Andy DaltonTyrod TaylorMarcus MariotaDevonta FreemanMatt JonesDion LewisChris JohnsonRonnie HillmanKarlos WilliamsMarvin JonesStevie Johnson,  Travis BenjaminJames JonesTerrance Williams, Donte MoncriefTyler EifertCrockett Gillmore, and Jordan Reed.

I would pick up in following order:  Devonta FreemanDion LewisKarlos WilliamsJames JonesDonte MoncriefMarvin Jones and Tyrod Taylor.

Here are my free agent picks for the week at each position, though there aren't a ton of them as they have been covered in the previous weeks:

QB

  • Oakland Raiders David Carr, QB : With he addition of WR Amari Cooper , he is becoming a top 15 QB and has a nice schedule.
  • Baltimore Ravens Joe Flacco, QB: I am not a big fan, but take a look at his next few weeks. It's as easy as you can get in the NFL

RB

  • Seattle Seahawks Thomas Rawls, RB: He looked great over the weekend, and Marshawn Lynch is a huge question mark this week.
  • Tennessee Titans Antonio Andrews, RB: He looks to be the RB1 now. So even though Tennessee is up on a bye week, you should always be open to adding a starting running back whenever you can.
  • Dallas Cowboys Lance Dunbar, RB: He is now the #1 target for the Dallas Cowboys and a PPR monster.
  • New York Giants Andre Williams, RB:  Rashad Jennings looks awful, and they have to give the rock to someone. Williams isn't a bad lottery ticket.

WR

  • Oakland Raiders Michael Crabtree, WR: He has more targets than Amari Cooper in the new high flying offense.
  • Houston Texans Cecil Shorts, WR: This is more of a PPR play as he leads the Texans in targets.
  • Tennessee Titans Dorial Green-Beckham, WR: The targets are not yet there, but the physical skills are.
  • New Orleans Saints Willie Snead, WR: He looks like the WR2 there and is only for deep leagues.

TE

  • San Diego Chargers Antonio Gates, TE:  He is only a week away and should slot right in as a bottom TE1.
