Depending on your league’s competitiveness and format, there usually are a few enticing waiver wire options available after each NFL Sunday. Last week there seemed to be a few more — typical for the first week — than after week two, but still some valuable commodities are floating on waivers this morning.
In dynasty leagues, consider the following: Laurent Robinson (WR, Rams), Mike Sims-Walker (WR, Jaguars) and Justin Forsett (RB, Seahawks). All could be valuable adds as they established themselves offensively in week two. Julian Edelman (WR, Patriots) also is an interesting option, though I am not sure there is room for him on the field when Wes Welker returns.
Yesterday was an exciting day of football, but then again any Sunday during the fall is exciting … because of football. The top three players likely on waivers in your league(s) are shown below. If you have a high waiver priority, consider using it on one of these guys.
Mario Manningham (WR, New York Giants) – Manningham was a fantasy stud last night against the Cowboys, reeling in 10 catches for 150 yards and a score. This performance makes two weeks in a row that Manningham has broken into double-digit fantasy scoring. He is a must add in all scoring formats.
Willis McGahee (RB, Baltimore Ravens) – All of the hype leading into the season was on Ray Rice, but McGahee has not so silently ran his way to the top of Baltimore’s running back by committee (RBBC). The Ravens will more than likely employ a RBBC for each week and try to ride the hot hand. So far McGahee has been their workhorse.
LeSean McCoy (RB, Philadelphia Eagles) – The Eagles offense is being decimated with injuries…and it’s only week 2! This time Westy falls victim to an ankle sprain. Much like last season, Westbrook will probably spend much of the year on the team’s injury report. Although the sprain is said to be not serious, any set back could keep him off the field which would allow McCoy to get the lion’s share of the snaps.
