Waiver Wire Watch: Players to Pick Up Week 3
Throughout the college football season, I'll pick two guys from every conference who either caught my eye in the previous week or who have a favorable match-up in the near future. As always, I'll get to any questions or comments you have in the comments section below.
Blake Barnett, QB, USF
A repeat recommendation from the first week, Barnett is not owned in nearly enough leagues after eclipsing 30+ fantasy points in each of his first two games. Not only has he completed nearly 70% of his passes with five touchdowns through the air, but he also has three touchdowns on the ground. Barnett should continue his hot run versus Illinois and East Carolina the next two weeks. Beyond that, USF has a fairly soft schedule and will be favored in most of their games this season, making Barnett a permanent fixture for fantasy lineups.
Marquez Stevenson, WR, Houston
Two games and two double-digit fantasy performances for Stevenson. What I like about Stevenson is that he comes with some diversification as he has three rushing attempts for 120 yards and seven catches for 147 yards with three total touchdowns. Houston's offense looked unstoppable versus Arizona and I'm not sure Texas Tech or Texas Southern will be able to stop them either. Quarterback D'Eriq King is a must own if he's somehow still available in your fantasy league and I would also consider rostering Courtney Lark.
