Happy Tuesday Fantasy Footballers. Here is to hoping you woke up today 2-0 and with a clean slate on the injury report. However, we can’t all be so lucky and there are many of us in the Fantasy Football World that are looking for some help on the waiver wires after week two. As I will be doing every week, I will be giving my priority adds for you to be aware of on your waiver wire at the major positions. Let’s get to the people that matter.
QB – Ryan Fitz
patrickMagic – Tampa Bay (25% Owned)
Here is a special shoutout to my friend in the comments from last week, Mike:
Well Mike, first of all no hard feelings. Secondly, I hope you were crazy enough to grab him last week. I wish I had been as I had Russell Wilson starting. Gross. Give me Ryan FitzMagic 8 days a week until Mr. Crablegs is back under center in Tampa. All FitzMagic did was go out and throw for 400 more yards and 4 more TDs, and this week he gets a TASTY matchup with a Steelers defense that just gave up SIX touchdown passes to Patrick Mahomes.
Oh baby, if you have any of the following QBs this week, I would consider grabbing and starting the Magician instead:
Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, and Philip Rivers
As you can imagine, I want you to ride the wave all the way as long as the surf is up. Now, go out there and get magical on the waivers.
RB – Javorius “Buck” Allen – Baltimore (8% Owned)
Over the first two weeks of the season, Buck Allen has been a cog in the Baltimore Ravens‘ game plan. totaling 14 and 15 PPR Fantasy Points in the first two weeks respectively, It looks like his role is here to stay. If you are in PPR format, this guy is for you and I suggest you go out and grab him before his ownership starts rising. The nice thing about Allen is that even though Alex Collins is there as the primary ball carrier, he has gotten two touchdowns on the year on the ground and is the primary goal line back. With 10 catches through two games to go along with 10 carries and 2 TDs, you can rest assured that Allen will continue being a nice flex play in PPR formats.
WR – Geronimo Allison – Green Bay (31% Owned)
Aaron Rodgers was out there this week and so was the target share for Geronimo Allison. After getting 8 targets in week one, he saw 6 targets in week two, producing 6 catches for 64 yards. Anyone tied to Rodgers is a good bet for production…but give them an average of 7 targets per week and you can bet that they are flex worthy in most formats. I like Allison to continue to be a favorite target of Rodgers and that role may only grow as the season rolls on as well. While I don’t like him as a flex as much as Buck Allen, I do think that you should take a flier on him, especially given his share of targets.
Wildcard of the Week
WR Antonio Callaway – Cleveland (8% Owned)
I know what you are thinking…”You are really suggesting a Brown?” I know, Fantasy Football blasphemy, but this guy has the skills to pay the bills. Being a Tennessee Vols alumnus, I got to see Callaway take the top off our defense and stick daggers in our football hearts in college. Well, he would have stuck a dagger in the Saints hearts as well had it not been for atrocious field goal kicking. It took a little while for Callaway to get going, but he showed us what he is – a boom or bust deep threat. I actually think his role will start to grow, however, and he could develop into a DeSean Jackson type of a player. Right now, he is bench fodder, but could be a worthwhile stash once bye weeks roll around.
