Nyheim Hines, Malcolm Brown, Russell Gage Top List of Waiver Wire Grabs for Week 2

Bill Enright

Fantasy football players are flocking to the waiver wire to get their hands on emerging prospects.

Week 2 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire

Even though there are no bye weeks yet, the Waiver Wire is still an important factor in building a successful fantasy football team. Remember, your draft is only Step 1 to ensuring a winning season. The Waiver Wire is the in-season version of your draft and is a necessary and critical process to maintaining your roster with productive players.

Several players on this week's waiver wire could be added and started in Week 2 while others are purely for depth purposes. It is vital to know the difference between the two. For example, while we do suggest adding Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage, we aren't suggesting adding him and immediately starting him over someone like D.J. Moore who had a lackluster performance in Week 1.
