Waiver Wire Gems of Week 2

First of all, let me clarify that these typically are released on Sunday – we waited until all the games concluded even though some leagues may have waiver wires that already ran. It’ll be a better schedule moving forward :).

Also we typically build this list based on Fantrax’s rostered percentage but that’s not populating yet. So let’s take a guess at some key players you can add to your waiver wire selections for the season!

At QB, we saw Drake Maye look the part against two overmatched opponents (defensively overmatched, obviously any offense will look great against the terrible UNC defense). His ability to run paired with his excellent accuracy should make for an almost every-week starter in the ACC. 

Donovan Smith will take the reins at Texas Tech due to an injury and he’ll put up some points! Maybe he can keep that gig.  

Clay Millen and his Colorado State team was mismatched in week 1 against Michigan. I expect he and Tory Horton will be a great stack to have in fantasy throughout conference play. 

At RB. Rodney Hammond, EJ Smith, and Montrell Johnson all looked to be integral parts of run-heavy offenses – all worthy of a waiver wire addition. Jadyn Ott looked great and produced for Cal. We’ll have to wait and see who really takes the lead at RB for UNC. 

At WR, Charlie Jones from Purdue and Emeka Egbuka from Ohio State look like they COULD BE every-week fantasy starters. Traeshon Holden of Alabama could be in for a special season alongside Jermaine Burton.
