article imageNFL Fantasy Football: Week two waiver wire options

By Larry Seely     Sep 12, 2016 in Sports
It was a great start to the NFL season with drama and excitement in nearly every contest, but for those fantasy football owners that struggled with injuries or poor play, help can be found on the waiver wire.
New England shocked the football community with a solid win on the road against Arizona. The team did this without stars Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, but that could be good news for owners.
For those looking for a short-term answer at quarterback, likely those who had Robert Griffin, Jimmy Garoppolo of the Patriots will have three more weeks as a starter and while he won't set the world on fire with big numbers, he will supply a decent amount of points.
New England has another option at a different position. Wide receiver Chris Hogan had a big game against the Cardinals and appears to have some chemistry with the young signal caller. Hogan was on the field early and often, making him a solid choice for those looking for depth at the position.
Several wide outs had big games and not all big named players. Rookie Will Fuller of Houston had over 100 yards and a touchdown in his debut for the Texans. With 11 targets in the contest, he has a good understanding of the offense and Brock Osweiller isn't afraid to use the youngster and for fantasy football owners looking for a solid player, Fuller could be a great pickup in week two.
Running backs are hard to come by, especially with NFL teams throwing the ball all over the field, but for those with issues at the position, a couple options are available.
Spencer Ware of Kansas City is the best player available on the waiver wire, but a short-term solution with Jamaal Charles likely to return in the near future. Ware had a big game against San Diego, both on the ground and in the passing game and if available, grab him now and use him before he's relegated to a backup role.
Tight ends are also tough to come by, especially ones that can contribute, but Jesse James of Pittsburgh is a good option for the foreseeable future. James showed good hands against Washington and is an option in the red zone with his size and while he might not have 100 yards games, he can provide 5-8 points for owners each week.
