Week 2 brought along a slew of injuries to many major players. Coming into Week 3, there is a big possibility that many fantasy owners are going to be looking at the waiver wire to use players as a placeholder for this week. With the matchups and the skill that the players in this article possess, look for these fantasy WR streamers to fill a receiver spot, as well as score points for your fantasy team, for NFL Week 3.
Fantasy Football WR Streamers for NFL Week 3
N’Keal Harry, NE (vs. LV)
The Las Vegas Raiders seem to have trouble covering outside receivers. Robby Anderson totaled six receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown against them Week 1. It’s also very likely that this is the week that Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels try to get Harry more involved in the Patriots offense. Cam Newton loves to utilize his big receivers, based on the fact that Kelvin Benjamin became a household name. With Julian Edelman having a huge game last week, it’s likely that there will be a lot of attention on him, leading to Harry seeing single coverage. If you are in need of a receiver to fill an injury spot due to AJ Brown or Michael Thomas being out, look to Harry to fulfill that role for you.

Corey Davis, TEN (vs. MIN)
With AJ Brown on injury designation and his status for Week 3 up in the air, it’s likely that Corey Davis will continue his position as the number one receiver this week against the Vikings. Minnesota is not exactly top notch as far as cornerbacks go. Davis has succeeded with Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, and every red zone touchdown that Tennessee has scored has been through the air. It’s likely that the Minnesota defense will focus on stopping Derrick Henry, opening the door for Davis to succeed through the air. Davis is currently owned in 41% of ESPN leagues. With 10 receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown through two weeks, Davis looks to be a major cog in the Titans offense and should continue to see success against a poor Vikings defense.
Kendrick Bourne, SF (at NYG)
San Francisco is depleted at the skill positions. One of the remaining healthy starters is Kendrick Bourne. With Deebo Samuel on IR and question marks surrounding Brandon Aiyuk, as well as George Kittle’s status up in the air, Bourne looks to be the solid piece in the 49ers offense. With Jimmy Garoppolo likely out this week, Nick Mullens will be behind center. Mullins is capable of being a starter and is more than likely to look Bourne’s way a handful of times this week. Bourne is a player who may see a flurry of targets and get the opportunity to register a big game.
