Fantasy Football Week 2 Waiver Wire: Must-Add Running Backs, Receivers

1,328

Already in the loss column following your Week 1 fantasy football matchup? Don’t worry, because roster help can be found on the waiver wire, and there are plenty of options.

Let’s dive into some Week 2 waiver wire analysis.

Running Backs
Entering the two “Monday Night Football” games, the only running back with 100 rushing yards in Week 1 was Lamar Miller of the Houston Texans. It hasn’t been a great opening weekend for NFL running games, which make it hard to predict which players will break out in the coming weeks.

Nevertheless, here’s our list of must-add RBs for Week 2.
Jalen Richard, Oakland Raiders
Ryan Mathews, Philadelphia Eagles
LeGarrette Blount, New England Patriots
Theo Riddick, Detroit Lions
Charles Sims, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Wide Receivers
If you selected a wide receiver early in your fantasy draft, you probably were rewarded Sunday. There were 14 receivers with 90 or more yards entering Monday, and four of them had 130-plus yards. A total of 27 receivers caught at least one touchdown pass.

Here’s our list of must-add WRs for Week 2.
Quincy Enunwa, New York Jets
Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints
Jermaine Kearse, Seattle Seahawks
Nelson Agholor, Philadelphia Eagles
Chris Conley, Kansas City Chiefs
Phillip Dorsett, Indianapolis Colts
Robert Woods, Buffalo Bills
