Jim Cramer's Top Fantasy Football Pickups

With injuries to stud running backs like Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, and Raheem Mostert in Week 2, fantasy football players need to ferociously attack this week's Waiver Wire.  

Several players on this week's waiver wire could be added and started in Week 3 while others are purely for depth purposes. It is vital to know the difference between the two. For example, while we do suggest adding Panthers running back Mike Davis and think he's a solid flex play in PPR leagues. We also suggest adding a player like Chase Claypool who had a solid performance in Week 2 but isn't necessarily starter worthy for Week 3.

In the attached video, Jim Cramer and Bill Enright run through more than a dozen players to pickup in order to improve your fantasy football roster. All of the below mentioned players are available in 50% of fantasy football leagues. Those players include:
