Fantasy Football: Week 2 Waiver Wire

Who To Pick Up? Waiver Wire

This is our waiver wire pick-ups column. Dave B scours the free agent pools in fantasy land for the best available talent every week. Availability, of course, depends on the league. We’re using 12 team, 15 roster spot leagues as the median, but we’ll look for roster candidates for leagues of all shapes and sizes.

After all of the weekly games are finished be sure to check our cheatsheets, a who’s hot, and who’s not report plus more in our fantasy football guide.


Waiver Wire already? You bet! There were some key injuries in Week 1 and there is some potential Fantasy Gold waiting in the wings.

Choose right and you could get an early edge in your Fantasy leagues, choose wrong and you will be dropping your new acquisition in a couple of weeks!

Enjoy Dave B’s Week 2 Waiver Wire – I hope it helps!


Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers – 418 passing yards and three total touchdowns in a loss to the Cardinals has woken a few people up. We will definitely see what he’s made of this week against the Packers. Still with a reenergised Steve Smith, he may be worth adding based on the potential alone.

Ryan Fitzpatrick – Buffalo Bills – Fitzpatrick passed for four touchdowns on Sunday on just 208 yards. With a decent looking running game, the Bills are a little more dangerous than most would think.

 Rex Grossman – Washington Redskins – Believe it or not, Rex is not a terrible option. Against the Giants he went 21-for-34, 305-yard and two-TDs – not too bad against an albeit injured New York defense. The Arizona Cardinals are next – the same team that let Cam Newton throw for 418 yards are up next and then the weak pass defense of Dallas.


Cadillac Williams – St. Louis Rams – Williams is certain to take over from Steven Jackson who will likely miss next week. Williams rushed for 91 yards and had 49 yards receiving in the last game and looked good doing so. With Danny Amendola out of the lineup, the Rams will lean more heavily on the running game. He’s a great pick up for one week at least.

Brandon Tate – Houston Texans – His future Fantasy numbers depend completely on the health of Arian Foster. If nothing else, he proved that he is more than capable of taking the reins if Foster is hampered – 24 rushes, 116 yards and 1 touchdown is proof.


Devery Henderson – New Orleans Saints – Marques Colston (clavicle) is out for at least a month. He was targeted nine times in Week 1 and those numbers should increase.  He caught 6 of those targets for 100 yards and a touchdown. Henderson may be the biggest fish on the wire. [ad-8469823]

Robert Meachem – New Orleans Saints – Meachem should also benefit from Colston’s injury. Even with Colston in the game last week Meachem caught 5 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. He’s a great add too.

Brandon Gibson – St. Louis Rams – Danny Amendola is likely gone for the year – someone has to step up and suck up some of Amendola’s targets. The best option of the bunch is Brandon Gibson who led the Rams in receiving on Sunday.

Others to Monitor – Scott Chandler, Buffalo Bills, Early Doucet, Arizona Cardinals, Jacoby Jones, Houston Texans


Fred Davis – Washington Redskins – Chris Cooley who? Fred Davis clearly looks like the best Tight End passing option on what is actually looking like a decent offense. Davis had six targets, Cooley had three. Davis had 105 yards receiving, Cooley had 21. Davis is intriguing to say the least.

Greg Olsen – Carolina Panthers – Olsen had 4 catches for 78 and one of those catches he was stopped on the ½ yard line – a touchdown would have been nice. Newton is going to continue to rely on his Tight Ends and Olsen could benefit.


Detroit Lions – Ndamakong Suh, all pro defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, linebacker Stephen Tulloch and company looked good against a high powered Tampa team. It was a good test that they passed with flying colours (recording two sacks, a pick and a fumble recovery). The Lions take on the Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys – some good matchups against teams that are Fantasy friendly to opposing defences.

    Thinking smith might be a flop against GB. Should I play around with my flex (possibly starks?) and take out bradshaw? I keep going back and forth on all of these guys.
