Week 2 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets

Moon Man’s Fantasy Football Chronicles

Fantasy Football owners need to be active on the waiver wire. The wire offers starters, spot starters, sleepers and potential studs/busts. Moon Man has listed 20 players Fantasy Friends can target depending on their roster needs.

“Week 2 Waiver Wire Targets”

  1. Chris Hogan (WRPatriots) – Opportunity to be the #1 receiving option per matchup for Belichick and Brady. Potential 10+ targets weekly is too much to pass up. Recommend stashing Hogan now.
  2. Eli Rogers (WRSteelers) – Ben Roethlisberger built trust with Rogers in training camp. Eli Rogers showed his skills in the slot during the pre season and is now a dependable wr 3/flex option.
  3. Travis Benjamin (WRChargers) – Travis is next in line with the season ending knee injury to Keenan Allen. Worth a shot in deep leagues. Benjamin is lightning fast and more targets mean opportunities for the big play!
  4. Mohamed Sanu (WRFalcons) – Quite possibly the most overlooked wide receiver in Fantasy Football! Matt Ryan excelled with Roddy White as his #2 wr. It looks like Sanu is in line for target weekly and is a key part of the offense. Moon Man thinks he makes a solid wr #3/flex option. Receivers are deep at the moment so benching him is frowned upon. Moon Man rather bench a player with more upside like Phillip Dorsett. So either use Sanu as your spot starter or weekly flex option. Otherwise he is just wasting away on thr bench when he could be part of a trade while he is hot.
  5. Kenneth Dixon (RBRavens) – Grab him now before its too late. {https://ffphilosophy.com/2016/09/14/week-2-waiver-wire-targets/}
  6. Tajae Sharpe (WRTitans) – Sharpe is the #1 wide receiver for an offense that will move the ball per matchup. Sharpe is the receiver to get targets in Tennessee so get him on your roster for depth and potential spot starter value.
  7. Charcandrick West (RBChiefs) – Running back by committee in Kansas City. Spencer Ware is the lead dawg currently. West is strictly a Daily Fantasy Sports option with upside in league play as a flex option in deeper leagues.
  8. Tyrell Williams  (WRChargers) – If Travis Benjamin doesnt pan out as the number one receiver in San Diego. Tyrell Williams is in line next. Worth a flyer.
  9. Eric Ebron (TELions) – Solid backup option in league play. The tight end position will become clearer over weeks 2 and 3. Ebron performed well in week 1 and could find himself in the Top 10 tight end discussion once again.
  10. Shane Vereen (RBGiants) – Rookie running back Paul Perkins gets no burn. Third downs are owned by Vereen. Great DFS play this week versus the New Orleans Saints.
  11. Will Fuller (WRTexans) – Moon Man refuses to acknowledge Brock Osweiler and thinks there is too many mouths to feed in Houston. Will Fuller is talented and will be a flex option all season. Just dont expect his weekly performances to be consistently in the double digits.
  12. Eddie Royal (WRBears) – Daily Fantasy Sports play and spot starter. The Chicago Bears will be behind a lot in 2016. Jay Cutler will be slinging in the 4th quarter and Royal is dependable on 3rd downs. The Jay Cutler – Eddie Royal Fantasy Football Combination is back. Currently a WR #4 in Moon Man’s universe.
  13. Jesse James (TESteelers) – Heath Miller replaced by Ladarius Green who is now replaced by Jesse James. Solid league option if you are without a top tier tight end.
  14. Bilal Powell (RBJets) – Short week against a Buffalo Bills team that has personnel issues. Could be a good play in DFS/League Play this week.
  15. Dion Lewis  (RBPatriots) – Stash play if you have roster flexibility.
  16. Phillip Dorsett (WRColts) – Big play capability in an offense that will be throwing a lot. Currently the #3 wr behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Dorsett showed promise in 2015 and is getting looks in 2016.
  17. Corey Coleman (WRBrowns) – #1 wr in Cleveland with Josh Mccown back. Targets were coming his way with RG III. With Mccown, Coleman’s target will increase. Once Josh Gordon is back. Coleman should slide into a solid wr #3/flex option. Currently a stud rookie with huge upside.
  18. Ted Ginn Jr. (WRPanthers) – Daily Fantasy Sports play this week.
  19.  Joe Flacco (QBRavens) – Underrated in league play. Average quarterback with upside behind Marc Trestman. Solid rotational quarterback if you failed to draft a stud QB(https://ffphilosophy.com/2016/08/18/joe-flacco-and-andy-dalton-draft-combination/).
  20. Michael Thomas (WRSaints) – Drew Brees performed well week 1. Moon Man expects Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Michael Thomas to rotate double digit point totals weekly. Obviously Cooks is the #1 while Snead offers target value weekly at a lower cost in DFS. Michael Thomas does not have the upside like Snead but is a plug and play option depending on the matchup. Thomas lined up in two wr sets and will receive redzone targets as he builds repore with Brees. Worth a flier in deeper leagues.

As Always,

(Teams Going Off + Thoughts Flexed In) = Combination Lineups

May the Fantasy Force Be With You.
