Week 3: Waiver Wire Pickups
Last week, Bengals WR A.J. Green scored a long touchdown. This week, with Green out for most of Sunday, it was Sanu who hit pay dirt with the big play. It's not clear yet how much time Green will miss with his toe injury, but it is clear that Sanu will fill in as the Bengals' deep threat until he returns. Now entering his third season, Sanu has yet to prove himself as a worthy No. 2 WR. But at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, he definitely looks the part. If Green misses any significant time, Sanu will be a serviceable WR3 play. And the Bengals could stand to develop another receiving threat to complement Green whenever he returns.MyFantasyLeague availability: 100%
Ben McAdoo's new offense is not yet clicking in New York. For the second straight week, Eli Manning struggled to connect with his wide receivers downfield. That resulted in checking down to RB Rashad Jennings and Donnell. The latter ended the day with a team-leading seven catches for 81 yards, making it the second consecutive game in which Donnell has led the Giants in those categories. He deserves to be considered a borderline TE1 at this point. Manning is looking his way too often to ignore. Backup tight end Daniel Fells caught a touchdown, but Donnell is the preferred target and the better fantasy option. He's worth a look for owners who are thin at TE following the injuries to Jordan Cameron, Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis.
