I’ve got a decent list of players to target on this week’s 2021 Fantasy Football Week 3 IDP Waiver Wire, let’s get into it!

High Priority Adds

Oweh is probably the first defensive rookie to show that he’s probably going to warrant start consideration every single week.

He’s shown in just two weeks that all the concerns of him not being a playmaker in his final year of college need to be forgotten.

If you ask me, he’s the best pass rusher on the Ravens, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see his name in the discussion for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Justin Reid, S, Houston Texans

One of my favorite picks for an IDP Breakout this year, Justin Reid is off to a hot start recording two interceptions in each of the first two weeks.

He’s a great addition if you’re waiting on Jeremy Chinn to return to his rookie form. Or if you’re dealing with injuries or players that haven’t panned out yet.

He left the game early with an injury, but Head Coach David Culley said it was just precautionary.

Nick Vigil, LB, Minnesota Vikings

I know, this is a retread from last week’s Waiver Wire article. But get this guy if he’s available. He’ll be of great use as long as Anthony Barr is out.

Medium Priority Adds

Pay attention to his positional designation in your leagues. If he’s linebacker only, I’d probably drop him down to Low Priority.

However, it seems as though the second-year man may be a fantasy viable option on the Patriots’ defense.

At worst, he can probably fill in if you’re in a pinch and dealing with other injuries.

Grant Delpit, S, Cleveland Browns

Grant Delpit made his regular-season pro debut in a pretty big way. Racking up impact plays en route to a big fantasy day.

My concern with Delpit going forward would be his tackle floor. After only registering 3 tackles, this leaves him susceptible to bust games if he’s not racking up those impact plays.

Which, if we’re being realistic, are fewer and farther between than tackles. It’s possible, but you probably won’t have a chance to observe and digest before he gets gobbled up by your league mates!

Greggory Rousseau, DL, Buffalo Bills

I’m going to be honest. I wasn’t big on Rousseau coming into the league. I thought he was pretty unpolished in his 2019 film, and that he had a wire-y frame to boot.

However, my concerns have just about been alleviated. He looks more built and even more athletic than before. The year off seems to have served him well.

While I don’t think he’s worth weekly starting consideration yet, I think he’s someone you’ll want to get in on before he is.

Low Priority Adds

Payton Turner, DL, New Orleans Saints

Turner was one of the few bright points for the Saints in this tough outing. Filling in for an injured Marcus Davenport, Turner proved that he’s worth the first-round pick.

He’s only a low priority because I think it’s most likely he sees a lot less time when Davenport returns. But in the meantime, he’s worth looking at to start in a pinch.

Eric Wilson, LB, Philadelphia Eagles

Wilson through two weeks has shown that he’s probably going to be the more valuable linebacker on the Eagles. While Singleton returned to his tackling ways, it was Wilson who saw the most reps and came away with the big impact play.

Wilson is just the big-play guy. And while I like Singleton, if he’s only getting you tackles I think you’re going to end up disappointed. Seeing that most leagues don’t reward tackles that greatly.

Rayshawn Jenkins, S, Jacksonville Jaguars

Jenkins is the perfect addition if you’re just looking for a solid fill-in option for a limited time. He’s not going to blow anything out of the water. But he has a super safe floor, playing 100% snaps and putting in work.
