It’s Week 3 of the 2012 NFL season, and last week’s injuries have sent a flurry of owners to the waiver wires! This week’s biggest concern is finding guys to fill the holes of Matt Forte, Aaron Hernandez, and Ahmad Bradshaw, while some are just trying to decide if it’s panic time for Chris Johnson owners. Be sure to check out our Waiver Wire Savior , Waiver Wire Cut List articles, and Long-Term Investing Articles.
Here are our “Fantasy Football Start ‘Ems” for Week 3 of the 2012 season. As a reminder, everyone knows to start elite players like Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and LeSean McCoy, so when we compile our list we make sure to focus on serviceable players that will benefit from a favorable matchup.
Phil Dawson (Cleveland Browns) vs. Buffalo
The Browns showed great improvement against the Bengals, but because Brandon Weeden is learning the intricacies of the offense they’re still ironing out wrinkles. In conjunction with the Bills defense that found out that they could be as good as many thought, the Browns should be able to drive down the field on numerous occasions–just don’t be surprised to see them stall out. Dawson is five for five so far this season, booting three of those in the 40 to 50-yard range.

Nate Kaeding (San Diego Chargers) vs. Atlanta
‘Old Faithful’ has got it going early and, like the Browns, we see the Chargers moving the ball because Philip Rivers can work with a motley crew, but it does have its limitations. The Falcons made the Broncos and Chiefs work for their points but I don’t see the Chargers having any issues with rolling Kaeding out if they’re close enough in his range.
