usa-today-9504232.0
Jarid Goff – Goff currently ranked #3 quarterback, no one thought that Goff would be one of the top QBs in the league. If you saw how he played at Cal you would agree with his current rank.
patrick-mahomes-090818-getty-ftr_17wb68xnbvqap1h0p9lhe9n736
Patrick Mahomes – The much hyped chiefs QB has not disappointed. He has the #1 rank in most leagues.

Calvin Ridley – The number 1 receiver is not Julio. It is in fact Calvin Ridley. The Falcons love their Alabama receivers.
eric-ebron-1
Eric Ebron – Most left Eric on the waiver wire. He’s #3 ranked right now.

George Kittle – Some had predictions he would do ok this year but I do not think anyone had him in his top 5.

Friday – Top 5 Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 3

L murray
Murray – With Cook out for Week 3 Murray will get you 10-25 points, no brainer.
usa_today_10498389.0
Giovanny Bernard – He is a short term rental for Mixon who is out for 2-4 weeks. In my opinion he will get you anywhere from 7-16 points every week with a small chance he gets into the 20’s with his pass catching skills.
keelan-cole-jaguars-catch
Kelaan Cole – If you watched the game and gave Cole the eye test, he will be showing up for the rest of the season and putting up big fantasy numbers. Bortles is passing downfield this year and Cole is up to the challenge. 
bs-sp-ravens-john-brown-dazzles-at-thursdays-practice-20180726
John Brown – He is consistent double digit 10-18 points per week. The dream flex player for any team.
4e9f2dcacb190b130412bd11ad202cf7
Ryan Fitzpatrick – Most people left him on the waivers because of Jameis, now most people will leave Jameis on the Waivers because of Fitzmagic. If he is available please get him and thank me later.

Monday – NFL and MLB weekend warriors

Ryan Fitzpatrick
One of my favorite stories from this weekend is Ryan Fitzpatrick. I am trying to pick him up in every league in Fantasy Football. With his second 4+ touchdown game, Fitzy is securing the starting QB job in Tampa Bay.
Oakland Raiders v Denver Broncos
Patrick Lindsey – One of the most unexpected running back outbreaks of the season Lindsey is poised to be the next great Denver running back leaving Freeman owners in shambles.

Fransisco Lindor and the Cleveland Indians have secured the first division title in the MLB with a very mediocre winning percentage of .557. All of Cleveland is thanking the rest of the American league central for their service, as the closest team is the Twins with a .460 winning percentage.
jd-martinez-16d6c2d76ad7234a
JD Martinez  and the Boston Red Sox secured the first playoff spot even before the Indians got it. They project to be one of the winning-est teams in MLB history.

We are going to watch the rest of the season closely but when the St. Louis Cardinals season looked to be all but lost after dropping three in a row against the Dodgers, in comes Adam Wainwright, plagued with injuries and doubters within the Cardinals and MLB writers alike. Most thought this game was just to please the Cardinals fans that wanted to see the Veteran pitch. All of that could not be further from the truth, Adam showed the heart of a warrior and brought the Cardinals out of the pit and the offense responded. If the Cardinals win a championship you can look back to Sunday night as the catalyst.

Be a gamer!
