UPDATE:Pickups for Week 3

Are you in need of some assistance on who to pickup to help bolster your roster? Here are some players who we think can make a positive impact on your fantasy squad, who are still available in most leagues.

Must Haves

No major injuries this week so no must have players

Solid Pickups

LaDainian Tomlinson(RB) - Looked very quick against the Pats in week 2 and created energy for the Jets and the fans when he took the ball. Look for the Jets to get him involved against the Dolphins in week 3
15 Rushes for 70 Yards 1 TD 3 Catches

John Kuhn(RB) - If Brandon Jackson keeps running the way he did week 2, Kuhn will pick up more carries
6 Carries for 31 Yards, 2 Catches

Aaron Hernandez(TE) - Looks like he has solidified a spot in the rotation and will catch some passes from Brady each week. If you TE goes down or is not producing, pick up Hernandez
6 catches for 65 yards
Good For A Week

UPDATE:  Correll Buckhalter (RB) - Moreno has been ruled out for Sunday against Indy.  Buckhalter will be the starter and will share the field with Maroney but should be the primary back.
4 Rushes for 12 Yards 6 Catches

Mike Tolbert(RB) - The injury to Ryan Matthews ankle is not serious but the Chargers will monitor him. Tolbert will receive some carries and is worthy of a flex start
17 Carries for 73 Yards 3 Catches

Jason Snelling(RB) - Same situation as Tolbert, Turner had a non serious Groin injury and they will monitor him. Snelling had a HUGE game filling in and will get enough carries to warrant a start
14 carries for 62 yards 1 catch for 8 yards

Players to Watch

Jimmy Clausen - Matt Moore lost his starting job already and Clausen has played pro style football in college.  It is possible he can produce if he and Steve Smith can get in sync
16 for 33 188 yards 1 INT 3 Fumbles 2 Lost ... Welcome to the NFL

Demaryius Thomas - Did not play week 1 but had 8 catches(9 Targets) for 97 yards and TD against the Seahawks week 2.
2 Catches for 43 Yards
