Another week, another fantasy star down for the count. Last week it was Jamaal Charles
, and now the news is pretty grim for Kenny Britt
, who tore his ACL and is out for the year.
So needless to say, there are more than a few owners out there with work to do. I'll once again list the top pickups by position and include my best guess for Free Agent Acquisition Budgets in parenthesis (assuming a $100 bankroll).
Barring a complete meltdown against the Cowboys
on Monday night, Grossman should be a solid pickup heading into Week 4. Through two games he has averaged 298 yards and 2.0 TD. He'll throw a few picks, but Grossman has proven over his last five starts for the Redskins
that he's a solid fantasy QB in Kyle Shanahan's system.
Through three games, Hasselbeck is averaging 311 yards and 1.7 TDs. He did lose Kenny Britt
, so he's going to have to find another target besides Nate Washington
that he trusts in the passing game. Jared Cook
should be that guy, but thus far Hasselbeck hasn't really looked his way.
McCoy has been remarkably consistent thus far this season, throwing for between 210-213 yards in each of his three games. He also has five TDs versus a pair of interceptions. He's not a guy who is going to throw for a ton of yards, but he has good job security and is gaining trust in his weapons.
