Fantasy leaders in their respective positions, Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews once again made their beautiful connection speak. The QB continues to be ultra prolific, and his ability to score in all sectors makes the difference. Against New England, he threw for 218 yards, ran for 107, and scored 5 total touchdowns. Often Jackson’s most sought after receiver, TE Mark Andrews caught 8 balls for 89 yards, with a brace at the key.

Still a little rusty at the start of the season, Derrick Henry found some rhythm this weekend. More effective on the ground, with 85 yards and 1 touchdown in 20 races, he also participated a lot in the passing game (5 receptions, 58 yards). He is accompanied here by Khalil Herbert, who did well after replacing David Montgomery (out injured). The Bears replacement RB finished with 157 yards and 2 touchdowns in 20 carries.

A little in the shadow of AJ Brown on the first games, DeVonta Smith finds his place. The young WR of the Eagles released a very big game against Washington, with 8 receptions, 169 yards and 1 touchdown. He is associated with a surprise player, Mack Hollins, who broke through with the Raiders on this day. Taking advantage of Davante Adams’ discreet game, he caught 8 passes for 158 yards and 1 touchdown. Finally, we find Marquise Brown, who was often sought after by Kyler Murray, and who finished with 14 receptions for 140 yards.

Two defenses share the poster this week, the Eagles and the Bengals. Phily only conceded 8 points against the Commanders, and the pass-rush was dominant with 9 sacks. Cincinnati won its first game of the season thanks in particular to 4 sacks, 2 interceptions and 3 fumbles recovered.

Waivers: Players to add this week


Trevor Lawrence (Jacksonville Jaguars)

After a difficult rookie season, Trevor Lawrence was expected to emerge in the NFL. And it seems to be coming. The arrival of Doug Pederson as coach was good for the QB and the whole team, Lawrence drastically reduced the number of interceptions, and Jacksonville won. Still available in around half of the leagues, he has the potential to break into the top 10 at year-end position.

Marcus Mariota (Atlanta Falcons)

There aren’t too many candidates for the position of quarterback, and versatility makes the difference. A rushing touchdown is worth 6 points, and Mariota has scored 1 in 2 of 3 games this season.

Other QBs to watch: Jared Goff (DET), Ryan Tannehill (TEN)

Running backs

Khalil Herbert (Chicago Bears)

In our list of “handcuffs” to add during the Drafts, Khalil Herbert has just proven why. Coming into play after David Montgomery’s injury, he responded with 30.9 Fantasy points, the best total for a running-back this week. Add it now if you haven’t already.

Alexander Mattison (Minnesota Vikings)

He too appeared in the “handcuff” category, and if you are used to drafting Dalvin Cook, you must already have him. Dalvin Cook was out injured on Sunday, and Mattison logically took over. If it’s available in your league, take it, either to field it in Flex in case of Cook’s absence, or to trade it with its owner.

Other RBs to follow: Samaje Perine (CIN), Jamaal Williams (DET), Tyler Allgeier (ATL)


Romeo Doubs (Green Bay Packers)

Without Christian Watson or Sammy Watkins, our friend Aaron Rodgers decided to trust Romeo Doubs. The WR rookie responded with 8 receptions for 73 yards and 1 touchdown, and if he begins to have the confidence of his QB, we know what it can give.

Zay Jones (Jacksonville Jaguars)

Often targeted by Trevor Lawrence, the WR has established itself as the number 2 option in the aerial game of the Jaguars. And it’s an interesting status in an attack that passes a lot and is quite successful at the moment.

Mack Hollins (Las Vegas Raiders)

If there aren’t many free agent choices, why not add Mack Hollins, who came out of nowhere this weekend with his 158 yards. The return of Hunter Renfrow should calm him down, but in the meantime he can still surprise.

Other WRs to follow: Isaiah McKenzie (BUF), Michael Gallup (DAL), DeVante Parker (NE), Russell Gage (TB), Greg Dortch (ARI)

Tight ends

Tyler Conklin (New York Jets)

The Jets use the aerial game a lot, and Tyler Conklin is often targeted. And volume is key for this position. And with ten Fantasy points each week, the TE does the job.

David Njoku (Cleveland Browns)

To subscribers absent since the start of the season, David Njoku reminded us of his presence on Thursday against the Steelers. He caught 9 balls for 89 yards and 1 touchdown, one of the best games of his career. Let’s add it and wait to see if it confirms.

Other TEs to follow: Evan Engram (JAX), Robert Tonyan (GB)
