The 2020 NFL season is just 2 weeks old and the time is now to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire and hoping they can help you secure a playoff spot. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-50 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire Quarterbacks for Week 3.
Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
Burrow had a great primetime debut in Week 2, as he went 37-for-61 for 316 yards and three touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. A bad offensive line puts him in peril ahead of a Week 3 matchup against a formidable Philadelphia Eagles front four, but otherwise the matchup looks solid. Plus. the Eagles haven’t gotten it done in between the lines in 2020/
On Sunday, Rams quarterback Jared Goff went 20-for-27 for 267 yards and three touchdowns as he also added 13 rushing yards. Dwayne Haskins also did not throw and interception in Week 1, and added 17 rushing yards of his own.
Burrow has a chunk of tough matchups coming, against the Baltimore Ravens (Week 5), Indianapolis Colts (Week 6) and Tennessee Titans (Week 8), but around that there are favorable matchups in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Week 7 against the Browns.
Burrow is not quite a sure-fire QB1 in fantasy football, however he’s in position to produce in each of the next two weeks, and he’s a worthy add as a QB2 in leagues with 12 or more teams.
