The second week of the fantasy football season is in the books. Whether you started 3-0, 0-3 or somewhere in between, you might be itching to make some waiver wire moves to improve your team. With bye weeks here, making a few moves might be necessary. If you’re looking to add some depth, there are a few players owned in less than 50 percent of leagues worth picking up. Here are five fantasy football players you should consider signing.
Karlos Williams, RB, Buffalo
LeSean McCoy could miss time, which means Williams' fantasy value gets a big boost. He's a must-add in most formats, especially if you own McCoy. He has RB2 potential with McCoy sidelined. As strange as it sounds, he's the only RB to score each week this season.
Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo
With the rash of injuries to QBs and bye-weeks approaching, it's highly unlikely Taylor makes another appearance on this list. He'll be owned in more than 50 percent of leagues. With three strong fantasy efforts under his belt, I'm a believer in him. If you're looking for a replacement for Ben Roethlisberger, Taylor is your best option.
Rishard Matthews, WR, Dolphins
Kenny Stills was expected to be the Dolphins big-play WR this season, but it's been Matthews instead. While there is some boom-or-bust risk, Matthews' targets have risen each week this season. He's worth owning in most leagues.
Marvin Jones, WR, Bengals
I liked Jones as a sleeper this preseason and he's now the clear No. 2 WR in Cincinnati. If you're looking for a player with upside that can serve as a bye-week fill-in, Jones is a good option.
Leonard Hankerson, WR, Falcons
Since Week 1, Hankerson has been targeted by Matt Ryan 16 times. Roddy White has been targeted zero. Hankerson is clearly the No. 2 option in Atlanta right now. Roddy White still has name-value, so try to trade him for something if you can and then sign Hankerson. If I had to choose between owning Hankerson and Roddy White at the current moment, I'd pick Hankerson.
BONUS Notes On Other Players:
Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls has value in deeper leagues if Marshawn Lynch misses more time. Bengals QB Andy Dalton is a solid bye-week add. Bills TE Charles Clay is the tight end version of Dalton. Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar is a smart PPR pickup. Giants WR Rueben Randle is the No. 2, but that could change when Victor Cruz returns.Back to the Fantasy Football Newsfeed
