Mike Williams, WR
The second-year receiver out of Clemson has produced double-digit scoring games in PPR formats every week thus far. He had a two-touchdown performance that netted him 24 points this past week against a very talented Rams secondary. Williams led the team in receptions, yards and targets, and seems to have solidified his role as the Chargers’ number two receiving option behind Keenan Allen. Williams is available in nearly 70 percent of ESPN formats and is a worthy waiver pick up.
Calvin Ridley, WR or Tyler Boyd, WR
Unless you have the number one waiver spot this week in your league, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to snag Ridley. As of now, he’s available in about 41 percent of ESPN leagues, but after his 40-point PPR performance this week, his ownership will rise drastically. An alternative to Ridley that may be easier to find is Cincinnati’s Tyler Boyd. He has two straight weeks with six receptions, 90-plus yards, a touchdown and 20-plus fantasy points. He, like Ridley, will be a hot add this week, but not to the same extent. Boyd is currently available in 76 percent of leagues.
Javorius Allen, RB
Alex Collins is definitely the Ravens lead back, but Javorius Allen still finds himself integrated in the game plan on a weekly basis. At this point he is only helpful in PPR formats, as his 13-70-1 season receiving line shows through the first three weeks. To go with this, he only has 16 total carries for 32 yards. That being said, he still was able to find paydirt from the backfield in each of Baltimores first three games. If Collins were to go down with an injury, Allen could be a serviceable RB2. He is currently available in just over 60 percent of leagues.
