Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 3 It's always a good idea to proceed with caution on your waiver wire after Week 1. Of course, every once in a while a Puka Nacua comes around and destroys that approach. That's unlikely this week. However, there are still plenty of appealing options on the Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 3.   Here are the top fantasy football waiver wire: Week 3 players to target—also, a recommended FAAB value to spend. FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget Zack Moss (RB) Indianapolis Colts (12% FAAB) - After missing Week 1, Moss did a hostile takeover of the Indianapolis backfield. He was the only Colts' running back to see the field in Houston. Moss logged 56-of-57 snaps and turned 22 touches into 107 scrimmage yards and a score. Deon Jackson didn't log one snap. Also, we know Jonathan Taylor will miss a minimum of two more games. That puts Moss in a position to compile RB2 numbers for at least two weeks. However, a matchup against Tennessee's tough run D next week looms, so keep bids reasonable. Tutu Atwell (WR) Los Angeles Rams (10% FAAB) - I advocated for prioritizing Puka Nacua last week. In retrospect, 20% FAAB wasn't nearly enough for Nacua, who is making headlines. Conversely, Tutu Atwell is flying under the radar. However, he's quietly been nearly as good.
