First off, I hope everyone had a great Week 1. If you did not, remind yourself that it’s just one week and you have a lot of time to rebound your team into a playoff threat. Most rebounding comes from awesome ownership, which requires great add/drops and waiver wire hunting. So, stay on top of the add/drop process all year long and land that next hidden gem or underrated star! Here are some players to grab off waivers heading into Week 2.
Note: I don’t have to tell you that if Spencer Ware is on waivers, he is the top add by far, as the guy dropped 70 yards and a touchdown on the ground, and added seven receptions for 129 yards through the air. He isn’t likely available in any competative leagues, especially since we pimped him all month long and even had him on our Bold Predictions List.
Week 2 Add/Drops
- Willie Snead – Surprisingly available in a lot of leagues, Snead looks to be a strong WR3/4 candidate in fantasy moving forward, as he pulled in 9-of-9 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Raiders.
- Mohamed Sanu – Not likely available in every league, but be sure to check, as the guy has strong WR3/4 fantasy appeal moving forward. He pulled in 5-of-8 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 1.
- Theo Riddick – Not likely available in many leagues, it is worth checking! Riddick rushed seven times for 45 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, and he also caught 5-of-5 targets for 63 yards and another touchdown. Both he and Ameer Abdullah will both have big roles in this offense, and Riddick is shaping up to be a decent RB2 in all PPR formats.
- Carson Wentz – Kid looks like the real deal. Grab him in larger redraft leagues, and of course, he won’t be available in any dynasty leagues. He could have a bright future.
- Eli Rogers – Solid Week 1 effort and a potential WR3/4 in fantasy in that PIT offense!
- Chris Hogan – Not likely available in many leagues, it’s worth checking! He is the No. 2 in NE, and that means something, especially when Brady comes back from his suspension. In Week 1, Hogan grabbed 60 yards and a touchdown.
- Jimmy Garoppolo produced 264 passing yards and one touchdown in Week 1 against a tough Cardinals defense. He is a solid backup in fantasy until Brady returns.
- Will Fuller – The youngster looks legit, pulling in 5-of-11 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Bears. He has WR3/4 appeal in fantasy moving forward.
- Travis Benjamin – The Chargers WR is now the likely No. 1 WR in San Diego with Keenan Allen (knee) likely out for the year. He should be grabbed in most all formats, as he pulled in 8 passes for 32 yards in Week 1 and should be in for more work in Week 2. Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams should both be looked at as well, but only in deep, deep leagues. Benjamin has the real value for now, and that value is right around fantasy WR3/4 type value.
- Josh McCown – With RG3 out for the year, he will now become the CLE starter.
- Quincy Enunwa – A solid add that could be a WR4/5 moving forward.
- Shane Vereen – He is a decent end-of-bench RB in PPR formats if you’re in need.
- Alfred Morris – He is the clear backup to Zeke and should be owned in case Zeke suffers injury.
- Mike Wallace – The guy pulled in 3-of-6 targets for 91 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and deserves a look in larger leagues.
- Cole Beasley – He pulled in 8 receptions for 65 yards in Week 1.
- Anquan Boldin – If you are in desperate need at WR, Boldin isn’t a bad add. He pulled in 3 receptions for 35 yards in Week 1.
- Tyrell Williams the Chargers WR should become end-of-bench relevant with Keenan Allen (knee) likely out for the year. He had 2/71/0TDs receiving in Week 1.
