Wide Receivers
  • SEA Tyler Lockett (68% owned) vs DAL
  • NYJ Quincy Enunwa (61% owned) @CLE
    • Targets galore for Quincy with 21 over Weeks 1 and 2.
  • JAX Keelan Cole (49% owned) vs TEN
  • DET Kenny Golladay (62% owned) vs NE
  • LAC Mike Williams (60% owned) @LAR
  • TB DeSean Jackson (49% owned) vs PIT
    • Another long TD in Week 2. He needs to be started as long as Fitzpatrick is playing.
  • BAL John Brown (25% owned) vs DEN
    • We always knew the talent was there. If he’s healthy- play em!
  • SEA Brandon Marshall (48% owned) vs DAL
  • GB Geronimo Allison (31% owned) @WAS
  • TB Chris Godwin (35% owned) vs TB
    • Another TD for Chris Godwin in Week 2. Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson had TDs as well.
  • CIN Tyler Boyd (2% owned) @CAR
    • Played the 2nd most WR snaps for Bengals.
  • CLE Antonio Callaway (6% owned) vs NYJ
    • Josh Gordon is gone.
  • Ted Ginn Jr (41% owned) @ATL
  • DJ Moore (29% owned) vs CIN
Running Backs
  • SF Matt Breida (62% owned) @KC 
    • The NFL leader in rushing yards… wait what?!
  • DEN Phillip Lindsay (69% owned) @BAL
    • Continues to split work with Royce Freeman.
  • NYJ Bilal Powell (57% owned) @CLE
  • CIN Giovani Bernard (28% owned) @CAR
    • Joe Mixon is expected to miss at least a few weeks.
  • BAL Javorius “Buck” Allen (8% owned) vs DEN
    • Was on last week’s Waiver list and continues to steal work from Alex Collins. Kenneth Dixon out until at least Week 11.
  • PHI Corey Clement (22% owned) vs IND
    • Jay Ajayi missed most of the first half with a back injury and Clement took advantage. The OC has already said that Jay Ajayi could miss Week 3. This could mean a nice workload for Clement. The Eagles also brought up rookie Josh Adams from the practice squad.
  • NE James White (63% owned) @DET
  • JAX T.J. Yeldon (69% owned) vs JAX
    • Should be owned in every league. Fournette’s hamstring injury forced him to miss Week 2 and could plague him throughout the season.
  • MIN Latavius Murray (43% owned) vs BUF
    • Dalvin Cook left in Week 2 with a hamstring injury but says he’s fine. Still, if he were to miss anytime this season, Murray would be very valuable.
  • LAC Austin Ekeler (44% owned) @LAR
  • GB Aaron Jones (61% owned) @WAS
    • Jones returns from suspension and Jamaal Williams hasn’t been racking up fantasy points at all. Williams’ pass protection could keep him on the field though.
  • DET Theo Riddick (24% owned) vs NE
    • Surprise surprise, the Lions can’t run the ball. 19 targets for Riddick over the first two weeks.
  • JAX Corey Grant (2% owned) vs TEN
    • Could be a sneaky pass-catching add with the Fournette hamstring injury.
  • BUF Marcus Murphy (1% owned) @MIN
    • Will compete with Chris Ivory for touches in Buffalo if LeSean McCoy misses time (ribs).
  • BUF Chris Ivory (5% owned) @MIN
    • Will compete with Marcus Murphy for touches in Buffalo if LeSean McCoy misses time (ribs)
  • ATL Ito Smith (2% owned) vs NO
    • Devonta Freeman is expected to miss at least the next couple of weeks.

Ok, I’ll gfm

Brittany says:

Agree about list of droppable players.

The Hefty Lefty says:

What are the chances you guys could start a Sunday morning podcast leading up to the games?

Also, totally agree with @brooksbarnhouse. Would love a list every week of guys you think are droppable….(i.e this week chris carson, Tarik cohen?)

kgrandison says:

Also, lemme get some streamer DEF/ST on the waiver article

brooks_barnhouse says:

I think it would be really helpful if you also posted players that you think are drops. As much as I love the show it’s sometimes difficult to fit in every show and when navigating waivers deciding who to drop can be tough.

Chris says:

Dear Ballers,

With FAAB becoming more and more prevalent in fantasy leagues, I believe it would be valuable to give % of budget ranges for these players. Is there somewhere else on this site I can find FAAB suggestions? or should I gfm? Thanks!
