There may be going to be a frenzy on the waiver wire forward of Week 2, and you might want to know methods to finest allocate your assets. Jamey Eisenberg’s Waiver Wire column is up and prepared so that you can get all of the assist you want. Listed below are the highest targets for this primary waiver run of the common season: 

Jamey Eisenberg’s high targets

  1. Elijah Mitchell (6% rostered) — Mitchell took over after Mostert’s damage in Week 1 and regarded nice in his NFL debut. He figures to be the lead again shifting ahead, although do not drop fellow rookie Trey Sermon simply but — he’ll most likely be energetic in Week 2. Mitchell could require 40% of your FAB finances to accumulate, however except I am determined for a No. 2 RB, I would most likely cross at that value. He is wonderful for 25%. 
  2. Nyheim Hines (65%) — Full disclosure: Hines was additionally one of many high waiver targets popping out of Week 1 final season too when he had seven carries for 28 yards and a landing on the bottom together with eight catches on eight targets for 45 yards and a rating. However this time is completely different … proper?
  3. Mike Williams (63%) — Williams has proven flashes, however by no means fairly like what he did in Week 1 when the Chargers used him like greater than only a deep menace and he responded with a giant efficiency. He may very well be in line for an enormous breakout. 
  4. Sterling Shepard (29%) — I am not fairly certain I purchase Shepard having the ability to stay a starting-caliber Fantasy choice as the remainder of the Giants offense will get wholesome, however he was clearly undervalued coming into the season.  
  5. Juwan Johnson (3%) — Johnson caught two touchdowns in Week 1, however did not play an enormous position in any other case. Hopefully that adjustments shifting ahead, however be certain that to test if he has TE eligibility in your league earlier than including him; he does not have a lot enchantment in any other case. 

One (extra) goal for every place

  • QB: Tyrod Taylor (9%) — Taylor regarded fairly nice in Week 1, albeit towards a really gentle Jaguars protection. Nonetheless, his dashing talents make him a No. 2 Fantasy QB. 
  • RB: Mark Ingram (32%) — It took an ideal storm to get Ingram to an RB19 end in Week 1, however he is a lead again on a run-first group, so he ought to be on somebody’s roster. 
  • WR: Tim Patrick (9%) — My preliminary response to Jeudy’s damage was so as to add KJ Hamler, and whereas I nonetheless like him, I feel I would prioritize Patrick, who had a seven-game stretch in 2020 the place he put up a 16-game tempo of 69-1166-7. He is higher than you assume.
  • TE: David Njoku (2%) — Njoku performed a surprisingly massive position in Week 1 and regarded actually good, incomes a handful of deep targets and main the tight finish place with 92 air yards. He ran extra routes than Austin Hooper and will emerge as the higher Fantasy choice of the 2.

I attempt to not be too reactionary coming off Week 1, however I will attempt to spotlight the most important movers at every place. I’ve additionally written about lots of the gamers and my justifications for his or her rankings at every place, so click on on every place for extra of my ideas. These pages may even be up to date all through the week, so preserve the hyperlinks useful. These are all for PPR leagues:


The factor about quarterback is, there is a clear high 10 on the place, they usually actually stand out proper now. Past them, you are speaking a couple of level in my projections separating No. 12 from No. 23. Which implies there’s going to be loads of motion from one week to the following, and not using a participant’s worth really altering. That being stated, Jameis Winston and Teddy Bridgewater are massive risers, whereas I am feeling fairly pessimistic about Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Wentz after Week 1. For extra of my ideas on the quarterback rankings, head here

  1. Lamar Jackson
  2. Patrick Mahomes

Operating backs

Joe Mixon confirmed all of my expectations in Week 1, so whereas he could also be shifting up for everybody else, he stays put at RB4 for me. Austin Ekeler hasn’t actually moved down but, but when he does not get entangled within the passing recreation this week, I will begin panicking. I got here away from Week 1 fairly happy with Clyde Edwards-Helaire‘s position, and a wholesome D’Andre Swift appears to be like like he may be one of the best decide in Fantasy this season. On the alternative finish, I dropped James Robinson from the top-12 to fringe No. 2 standing, and he may fall additional than that. For extra of my ideas on the working again rankings, head here
