Fantasy Football: Waiver Wire Additions for Week 2

Here's a look at some players that should take priority if you're looking to pick up some reinforcements from the waiver wire.


Jeff Wilson, RB, 49ers: Elijah Mitchell's injury gives Wilson an opportunity to contribute right away.


Jaylen Warren, RB, Steelers: Najee Harris hurt his foot and while it's not determined for sure that he'll miss time, Warren would be a good player to pick up just in case.


Rex Burkhead, RB, Texans: It's annoying having to add him to this list, since we all thought Dameon Pierce would get more opportunities. Burkhead had 19 touches to Pierce's 12 in a close game, however.


Robbie Anderson, WR, Panthers: He took the lion's share of targets from Baker Mayfield, turning one into a 75-yard touchdown.


Devin Duvernay, WR, Ravens: Could he be turning into a go-to man for Lamar Jackson near the end zone? Might as well scoop him up, just in case his two scores weren't an anomaly.


Jarvis Landry, WR, Saints: Jameis Winston is looking like he could sustain multiple receivers for fantasy purposes. He targeted Landry nine times while Michael Thomas also had a huge game.


Kenyan Drake, RB, Ravens: Drake might be useful to a lesser extent, especially since J.K. Dobbins may be back for Week 2.


Curtis Samuel, WR, Commanders: There's risk in putting stock in offensive players dependent on Carson Wentz, but don't let a reputation look a gift horse in the mouth. Samuel garnered 11 targets Sunday.


Jahan Dotson, WR, Commanders: He caught two touchdowns on five targets and I like picking up rookies who are productive right away.


DJ Chark, WR, Lions: Two decent matchups in a row after a productive first week make Chark a decent addition.


Gerald Everett, TE, Chargers: With players like Dawson Knox, Cole Kmet, Mike Gesicki and David Njoku putting up duds, might as well give Everett a shot.


Joshua Palmer, WR, Chargers: If you're late in the waiver list in terms of priority, Palmer may be a nice idea if Keenan Allen ends up having to miss time with a hamstring issue.
