Here's my top recommended waiver wire and streaming targets ahead of the coming week. Waiver Wire targets are designed to be multi-week roster-worthy options while streaming options are designed to be one-week lineup options based on matchup, injuries, and/or situation. To be eligible as a waiver wire or streaming option, the player must be available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues.
Top Waiver Wire Targets of the Week:
De'Von Achane (RB - Miami Dolphins) - Wow, just wow. After missing the opener and being slowly introduced into the offense in Week 2 (2 touches), Achane was the lead back in a historic offensive explosion in Miami, drawing 18 carries for 203 yards and 2 TDs while bringing in all 4 of his targets for 30 yards and 2 additional TDs via the air - 51.3 points. He drew 41% of the snaps, a team-high 18 carries, and a team-high 22 touches in his first true action. There's not a lot of security in what appears to be a committee backfield with Mostert and the soon-to-be-returning Jeff Wilson, but the upside is unbelievable in such a potent offense.
Tank Dell (WR - Houston Texans) - Make it back-to-back games with notable target volume (10 in Week 2, 7 in Week 3) and a TD for Dell, who went for 20+ points again this week. A majority of his production this week came off a 68-yard TD, but regardless, his promising target volume and presence as a go-to target for C.J. Stroud has made him a viable depth option on rosters. Should he continue receiving this type of volume, he could easily make his way into being a FLEX-worthy option in the coming weeks.
Joshua Palmer (WR - Los Angeles Chargers) - Palmer is set to step into the WR2 role in Los Angeles with Mike Williams seemingly suffering a major knee injury that required him to be carted off the field. Even with Williams playing a good portion of the game, Palmer drew 7 targets and made the most of them, going 4-66-1 for 14.6 points. He won't offer the upside that Williams brought but serving as the WR2 in a Justin Herbert/Kellen Moore offense will provide him enough to be a matchup-based FLEX option or, at the very least, a depth WR option.
Romeo Doubs (WR - Green Bay Packers) - Doubs was Jordan Love's go-to WR again, leading the Packers' WRs in targets for the 2nd time in 3 games (12 in Week 3) and continues to be his QB's favorite endzone target, notching his 3rd TD on the season in Week 3. The volume is there for now, but with Christian Watson (hamstring) returning in the coming weeks, Doubs is best suited as a short-term option and will likely transition into being a TD-dependent fantasy option.
Roschon Johnson (RB - Chicago Bears) - The Chicago Bears offense is a complete mess at the moment but one thing is for certain: the tide is changing at RB for the Bears. Roschon Johnson has been the better of the two Bears' RBs each of the first three weeks this season and Khalil Herbert may have served himself the death blow as the starter with a fumble in the 2nd quarter. Johnson had already been established as the Bears' preferred receiving back but Johnson may be the lead runner going forward too, earning 7 of 10 RB touches following Herbert's fumble. It's by no means a certainty or an ideal situation, but any potential lead back is worthy of a waiver wire add.
