Week 2 is in the books and there were some tough injuries. Most notably Vikings running back Adrian Peterson tore his right MCL. Let’s see what we can do on the waiver wire.
QB: Matt Ryan, Falcons- Ryan was not drafted in my league and looks like he is available in over 50% of ESPN leagues. So far he has thrown over 700 yards, 5 TDs to 1 interception.
RB: Jerick McKinnon, Vikings- 24% of you already have Adrian Peterson’s backup on your roster. I expect McKinnon to be one of the most sought after addition on this week’s list. Fozzy Whittaker, Panthers- The oft injured Stewart is nursing a sore hamstring. Hamstrings are tricky things. Not sure about Stewart’s hammy’s but he’s injured about every other part of his body.
WR: Corey Coleman, Browns- The rookie wide receiver busted out in a big way on Sunday with 100 yards and 2 scores. Unfortunately the Browns might be on their 3rd QB as current quarterback Josh McCown injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Victor Cruz, Giants- Cruz is still out there. He may not get back to where he was before the knee injury this season, but he is still a viable target.
TE: Jacob Tamme, Falcons- Yeah, that Jacob Tamme! He made his way to Atlanta and might be the TE that Ryan has been looking for since Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez retired. In two games, Tamme has 11 receptions for 126 yards, and a score. Dennis Pitta, Ravens- Pitta looks like he might have emerged as Flacco’s #2 target with 9 catches for 102 yards on Sunday.
D/ST: Eagles put in another solid week, and are only 27% owned in ESPN leagues. The Giants rebounded from a tough opening week.
