SATISFACTION

I’m excited to see what the list trends will look like on Wednesday and Thursday after all the waiver thread moves this week. It will be interesting to see who has been added and how much each player has earned in FAB across their leagues.

We have some big injuries to deal with heading into Week 2 with Dak Prescott (thumb), Elijah Mitchell (knee), Najee Harris (foot), Chris Godwin (hamstring), Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Tee Higgins (concussion) cerebral). ). This should force fantasy managers to be active on the waiver wire, which is always fun.

You can see all of my recommendations below, including streaming options on DST and kicker. We’ll also give you players to drop, but hopefully the guys you add this week turn into difference makers for your Fantasy roster.

Editor’s note: For this disclaimer thread column, we are only looking at players registered in less than 65% of CBS Sports leagues.

Week 2 Waivers

  • Injuries: Dak Prescott (thumb), Mac Jones (back) and Zach Wilson (knee).
  • Check if available: Matt Ryan (75% registered), Jameis Winston (73%) and Justin Fields (67%). Ryan didn’t have his best game in Week 1 against Houston with two turnovers, but he passed for 352 yards and a touchdown and surprisingly ran for 12 yards. He should come in handy in Week 2 at the Jaguars as a streamer. … Winston looked horrible to start the game against the Falcons, but he rallied the Saints to win and finished with 269 passing yards and two touchdowns. He should be the No. 1 quarterback to add, if any, heading into Week 2 against Tampa Bay. … Fields struggled in Week 1 against the 49ers in the rain, passing for just 121 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, as well as 28 rushing yards. But I still expect better production from Fantasy in the future, and he’s a solid No. 2 quarterback to hide in any league.
  • Submit candidates: Prescott (99% enrolled). I’d rather hide Prescott in any format, but Fantasy managers in 10-team leagues might not have that luxury with a shallow bench. He’s potentially out until Week 10 with his thumb injury, and if you have to drop him for a substitution, you might have to.

WIRE WAIVER

attacking half

  • Injuries: Elijah Mitchell (knee), Najee Harris (foot), Alvin Kamara (ribs), JK Dobbins (knee), Ken Walkter (abdomen), Brian Robinson (knee), Damien Williams (ribs), Kyren Williams (ankle) and Brandon Bolden (tendon).
  • Check if available: Michael Carter (77% registered), Alexander Mattison (76%), Kenneth Gainwell (75%) and Isiah Pacheco (70%). Carter, as expected, was the Jets’ leading running back in Week 1 against Baltimore with 10 carries for 60 yards, and he added seven catches for 40 yards on nine targets. Breece Hall could eventually take over for Carter, but Carter is the Jets guy at the moment and can be used as a flex in Week 2 against Cleveland. … Mattison is just a handcuff for Dalvin Cook, but he should be tucked away in every league if you have a spot to spare. … Gainwell did well as the No. 2 running back for the Eagles in Week 1 at Detroit with five carries for 20 yards and a touchdown, and he also added two catches for 12 yards on four targets. He could be a potential flexible option in PPR going forward, including in Week 2 against the Vikings. … Pacheco did most of his damage in Week 1 against the Cardinals in garbage time (12 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown), but he’s probably second running back behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Jerick McKinnon (17%) will also have a role in that backfield, and he’s worth adding in deeper PPR leagues. But Pacheco, like Mattison, could be a league winner if he is lucky enough to start anytime this year.
  • Submit candidates: Mitchell (100% registered), Darrel Williams (60%) and Isiah Spiller (26%). If you can’t hide Mitchell, he may have to be dropped, especially in 10-team leagues where there should be plenty of options on the waiver wire. Mitchell is expected to miss at least eight weeks with an MCL sprain. … Williams is third on the Cardinals depth chart and was clearly behind James Conner and Eno Benjamin in Week 1. Williams didn’t play in Week 1 against the Chiefs and isn’t worth a spot in most leagues. … Spiller was a healthy scratch in Week 1 for the Chargers, and that could continue for the near future. It’s only worth hiding in the Dynasty Leagues.

Wide Receivers

  • Injuries: Tee Higgins (concussion), Keenan Allen (hamstring), Chris Godwin (hamstring), Allen Lazard (ankle), Michael Gallup (knee), Rondale Moore (hamstring), Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) and Van Jefferson (knee).
  • Check if available: Marquez Valdes-Scantling (68% registered) and Julio Jones (66%). Valdes-Scantling made his quiet debut for the Chiefs in Week 1 with just four catches for 44 yards on four targets, but he played the most snaps and walked the most routes of any Kansas City receiver. according to Pro Football Focus. Great days are ahead for him. … Jones made a quality debut for Tampa Bay and should enjoy Godwin’s absence for a few weeks. Against Dallas in Week 1, Jones had three catches for 69 yards on five targets, including a 48-yard reception, and he added two carries for 17 yards. Russell Gage (44%) is also worth a look in deeper leagues.
  • Submit candidates: Tyler Lockett (89% registered), DeVante Parker (70%), Marvin Jones (64%), Kenny Golladay (37%) and Jalen Tolbert (31%). Seattle upset Denver in Week 1, but Lockett didn’t do much to help with just three catches for 28 yards on four targets. I’m afraid these stat lines are becoming the norm, and Lockett isn’t someone you need to hide in 10-team leagues. … The Patriots’ offense looked bad against Miami and struggled all preseason, and Parker now faces Mac Jones with a potential back injury. Parker had a catch for 9 yards on two targets and isn’t worth hiding in most 10- and 12-team leagues. … The pecking order of receivers for the Jaguars in Week 1 in Washington was Christian Kirk, Zay Jones then Marvin Jones, and I’m not sure the No. 3 receiver in that offense deserves to be listed in the most 10 and 12-team leagues. Kirk (12 targets) and Zay Jones (nine targets) each scored at least 12 PPR points, while Marvin Jones had four catches for 38 yards on six targets. … Golladay’s struggles in the preseason continued into Week 1 at Tennessee as he had just two catches for 22 yards on two targets in a game where Robinson was injured and Kadarius Toney (without target) was not involved. There’s little reason to hide Golladay right now. … It was disappointing that Tolbert was a healthy scratch in Week 1, and now Dak Prescott (thumb) is out until at least Week 8. With Gallup’s imminent return, it’s time to drop Tolbert in most seasonal leagues.

Week 2 Exemption Priority List

  • Injuries to report: George Kittle (groin)
  • Submit candidates: Mike Gesicki (80% registered), Hunter Henry (59%) and Irv Smith (52%). Gesicki seems destined to frustrate Fantasy managers this season and isn’t worth starting in any league. … I’m not sure you can trust the New England pass catchers, and now Mac Jones has a bad back. It might be ugly for Henry to move forward. … Smith should improve after going uncatched on just two targets against the Packers in Week 1, and he missed most of training camp with a thumb injury. But he’s not worth holding back until he proves to be a bigger part of Minnesota’s offense.
