Don’t quit on Bryce Brown just yet (via Fansided.com)

Week 3 is over! But the work is never done for fantasy football dynasty owners. There is no off season! Today we will discuss the Buffalo Bills’ Bryce Brown, among others, and whether or not they are worth targeting through trade or via the waiver wire.  Also included, will be three players you should let your competition burn a roster spot on.

Legit: Players who may or may not have had a great week but could be hot additions to your dynasty teams

1.  Bryce Brown RB, Bills – Bryce Brown hasn’t been utilized this, however, Buffalo traded for him with a reason in mind. Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller haven’t been able to stay healthy for a complete season in the past few years. Why not test the waters in your league to see what you can acquire Brown for?

2.  Bobby Rainey RB, Buccaneers – Although Rainey fumbled multiple times against Atlanta last Thursday night, he still presents a significant value via trade or if his owner cut ties with him.  Martin should return against the Steelers, but I wouldn’t be too concerned, Rainey has been the more impressive of the two, and we all know Martin hasn’t been the epitome of good health.

3.  Marvin Jones WR, Bengals - Jones is slated to return after the Week 4 bye, barring any setbacks. If you play in a dynasty league with limited or no IR there’s a chance he is still available on the wire. If not, you may be able to snag him on the cheap from an owner who is skiddish about foot injuries. He could have significant value in that offense upon his return.

 

Quit – Players that may seem like decent additions to your dynasty based on weekly production, but should be avoided

1. Joe McKnight RB, Chiefs – Don’t get me wrong, Mcknight was heavily involved in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He even lead the team in receiving and yards. I think his involvement was more about game plan. He is best left on the waiver wire for other owners at this time. His TD production won’t continue.

2. Jared Cook TE, Rams - I can’t recall a player who has been more of a tease in his career than Jared Cook. He has so much raw talent that he should easily be a productive TE. Yet whether it is hands of stone, lack of concentration, or poor game planning by his coaches, he continues to be an extremely volatile fantasy asset. He is one best left for other owners to worry about.

3. Alfred Blue RB, Texans – Let’s be honest, Blue likely isn’t on your waiver wire, but if by chance he is, stay away. His fantasy relevance this past week came on volume alone. If an owner is dangling Blue out on the trading block, you would be wise to avoid falling for that trap.
