The first week of the NFL season reminded us of how volatile this league can be. We saw rookie Allen Hurns of the Jacksonville Jaguars score touchdowns on his first two receptions. Then we saw the Jaguars blow a 17-0 lead and lose 34-17 to Philadelphia. Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens went from being suspended for a few more days, to being suspended indefinitely by the league in a 48-hour span shaking things up. Injuries played a big part as well, with tight ends Jordan Cameron and Jordan Reed suffering injuries and sending rosters into flux. He can be dropped in redraft leagues but hang on to him in dynasty leagues. Thankfully, we’ll help you make sense of it all on the waiver wire this week. We’ll break it down by position and ownership on ESPN, NFL and Yahoo Leagues to help you out.

 

Quarterbacks

Derek Anderson of the Panthers (99,99,99) is nothing more than a one-week fancy. He did okay in the place of an injured Cam Newton (ribs) but all reports indicate Newton is playing this week so there’s no need to pick Anderson up. Keep his name in mind should Cam get hurt again.

Eli Manning would have been on this list but his performance in Detroit sucked bad enough to remind us why we didn’t draft him. Manning was picked off twice and the Giants rolled up less than 200 yards of offense in the Motor City. Most of the yards came in garbage time and that’s where Eli belongs—right back in the dumpster like he was in 2013.

That said, Carson Palmer of the Cardinals (75,78,79) looks like the quarterback to pick up this week if you need some spark. Matthew Stafford of the Lions tore through the Giants and Palmer has better weapons all around.

 

Running Backs

This position became a mess quickly. Rice is done for the year which leaves Justin Forsett (98,98,98) as the lead back in Baltimore. Forsett can be picked up as a depth addition since starting running backs don’t come along every day on the wire. The downside is that Baltimore has the short week and takes on Pittsburgh Thursday night. He had 70 yards and a score on carries in the loss to Cincinnati so the potential is there for him to get touches and make some hay.

Doug Martin of the Bucs is hurt again and we’re not talking about his afternoon with less than 20 total yards of offense. Carolina is a tough team to play against and recently-acquired Logan Mankins left the game hurt which gave Martin practically no protection. Bobby Rainey (98,99,99) is in line to pick up snaps if Martin is out but he would be a flex play at best this week. The Bucs host the Rams and they got run over by Adrian Peterson this past week. Monitor Martin’s health today and be ready to pick Rainey up if things go badly.

Ben Tate got hurt (knee-questionable) and two running backs took advantage of it. Terrence West (20,15,18) had 16 carries for 100 yards in the Browns’ close loss. Isaiah Crowell (99,99,99) is the player to focus on if you missed out on West as he racked up 32 yards and two touchdowns on five carries. Tate injured his knee and we have no update on his condition as of press time. Crowell should be picked up if you need the depth. We saw how bad the Browns offense can be in the first half against Pittsburgh and they should be running the ball quite a bit.

The Arizona running back situation played itself out late last night and here’s what we saw. Andre Ellington is fine and looks good. Johnathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor played backup roles with Dwyer being the more effective back. Since Ellington pulled a fast one on us, we’ll hold off on picking up another Arizona running back until Ellington is actually hurt.

There are a few others to look at which include Chris Ivory of the Jets but he’s likely off the wire in most leagues. Shonn Greene of the Titans is in the same boat and the Titans have a favorable matchup against Dallas. Carlos Hyde is worth a quick check on the wire as well. The 49ers only have Hyde and Frank Gore on their roster at that position and Gore isn’t getting any younger.

Ahmad Bradshaw (80,79,82) is worth looking at since Trent Richardson played like Trent Richardson in the Colts loss to Denver. Bradshaw did well with 15 rushing yards and 70 receiving yards on eight total touches. Bradshaw has matchups with Jacksonville and Tennessee in Weeks 3 and 4 which are both favorable.

 

Wide Receivers

Allen Hurns (92,93,89) should be left on the wire for someone else to pick up. The reason Hurns broke out is that Cecil Shorts III was inactive against the Eagles and that gave Hurns the start opposite Marqise Lee. You have to be concerned about how much of a role Hurns plays if Shorts is healthy. The other part of the issue is that Hurns had a great first half (110 yards and two touchdowns on four catches) but did nothing in the second half. Add to that a matchup with Washington and it’s not that great of an outlook. Washington held Houston’s passing game in check and allowed one big play to the Texans (the 76-yard bomb to DeAndre Hopkins). We don’t like Hurns prospects to have another good game this week to warrant picking him up.

Steve Smith of the Ravens looked solid in the opening week and should be getting picked up if he’s available on your league’s wire. The same could be said about Minnesota’s Greg Jennings.

If you’re looking for that boost at wide receiver, try Brandin Cooks of New Orleans (33,30,26) after his debut with 77 yards and a touchdown on seven catches. The Saints should be in high gear again this week when they take on the Browns.

There is the Josh Gordon situation (75,80,78) to take into account. The vote is supposed to happen today by the representatives of the NFLPA to possibly modify the drug policies which could impact the suspensions of Gordon and Wes Welker of Denver. This vote will be the single biggest moment in fantasy football this season. You have the potential to have Welker available now and Gordon back on the field as well.

News of these developments came out Saturday around noon ET and owners went into a frenzy to look for Gordon on the waiver wire. He’s worth a look and if he’s there, I’d pull the trigger on him. The thing to keep in mind is to dump a guy who you know you could easily get back should this go against Gordon and he remains suspended. For example, I dropped Dexter McCluster to get a share of Gordon in one of my 55 leagues. It should be easy to get McCluster back if I want him. Keep that in mind if you go for Gordon.

 

Tight Ends

The injuries continue here with Jordan Cameron (shoulder) and Jordan Reed of Washington (hamstring) both leaving games hurt this week. The question is where will you find a replacement for these guys? The answer is Delanie Walker of the Titans (40,42,48) as he takes on the Cowboys in a favorable matchup. Vernon Davis destroyed Dallas last week with a pair of touchdowns and Walker is a good bet to find the end zone this week.

Keep an eye out for Zach Ertz of the Eagles (30,34,33) as Philadelphia gets a shot at the Colts on Monday night. Indy couldn’t cover Julius Thomas of the Broncos for anything and it might be Ertz’s turn to capitalize. Travis Kelce of the Chiefs (90,92,90) should also be picked up since Kansas City takes on Denver and should be throwing a lot.

 

Kickers

Mike Nugent (93,91,92) hit five field goals in the Bengals win and should be looked at as a good add. Matt Bryant (65,68,62) was solid in the Falcons win over New Orleans. Chandler Catonzaro of Arizona (98,99,98) made a pair of field goals in the Arizona win over San Diego last night.

 

Defenses

Washington (98,98,98) has a good matchup with Jacksonville and they did well last week in Houston. Arizona (15,16,19) is a good play against the Giants if you can find them on the wire. They shut down the ground game against the Chargers and will make life tough for Big Blue on the ground.

 

Final Thoughts: As much as you might want to jump at these players this week, be ready to play the second round of waivers as well. Someone will inevitably make a panic drop or an ill-informed decision and let someone really good go. This reminds me of how I picked up Peyton Manning two years ago after Week 1 on the waiver wire (yes, the season before he became God at QB). You can get a good player on Wednesday but you could get an even better one Friday.

Follow me on Twitter @AndrewNordmeier and I’ll start getting to the comments below late Tuesday.

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: No. I wouldn’t go for West. I think you have a nice set up in a PPR league with Woodhead for good depth.

  2. Ryan says:
    (link)

    I have pierce, but he is awful at the game of football – drop him for forsett?

    For auction waivers ($120 budget for season) how much budget would you advise to throw at forsett or west?

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: Yeah. I would drop him for Forsett who looks more more motivated. Go with 15 since it’s early season.

  3. KK says:
    (link)

    Currently own Andre Ellington and Dwyer (handcuff) worth dropping Dwyer for a waiver claim on Bradshaw?

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @KK: Yes it is. Bradshaw should hopefully take T-Rich’s spot soon. Ellington looked good late into the Arizona night. Yeah, he had that fumble but his asshole offensive lineman didn’t fall on it and screwed him over.

  4. Filkarri says:
    (link)

    Lost Jordan Reed, who do you like between Dwayne Allen, Larry Donnell, and Travis Kelce?

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Filkarri: Kelce. I don’t trust anyone Eli Manning is throwing to and Allen has to deal with Fleener.

  5. Wacha Wacha says:
    (link)

    Best Tight End add going forward ROS?

    C Clay, L Donnell, J Gresham, T Kelce, Z Miller, Quarless, J Fauria, B Pettigrew

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Wacha Wacha: Clay…then Kelce then Gresham. When Miami’s run game doesn’t do well, Clay should see plenty of chances.

      Gresham 3rd since you don’t know which Dalton you get each week.

      @Frank White: Hold on to it for now. Gut feeling says hold here.

  7. Frank White says:

    Also should I trade Brees, Cruz n Fred Jackson for Demarco Murray, Wallace and Bell(DET)?? I can pickup Big Ben if I did the trade

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: No I’d hold on to Brees.

  8. Scooter G says:
    (link)

    Could you pick your top 3 free agents adds from this group?
    A Williams, D Freeman, S Smith, B Quick, Forsett, Crowell, Cunningham
    Thanks!

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Scooter G: Smith at WR, Crowell at RB and Williams at RB.

      Freeman looks to be a little stuck with the Quiz Show, can’t trust a Ram with awful QB play and Cunningham doesn’t really cut it for me.

  9. dave the barber says:
    (link)

    Is it worth using the number one wavier priority (14 teams) on either West, Crowell, or Forsett? I’m stacked at WR with Megatron, D. Thomas, & Michael Floyd. My RBs are Spiller, Sprolles, Stewart, D. Freeman, and Dwyer.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @dave the barber: Nope. I’d hang on to it for something better. Remember to pay the rebound waivers.

  10. Mike says:
    (link)

    Jeffrey and Lacy for Calvin J ???
    10 team standard

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Mike: No. It’s not that big of an upgrade to cough up Eddie Lacy to get Megatron. Try going a little lower on the RB list for your team first.

  11. Mike says:
    (link)

    Jeffrey and FJAX for Julio jones???
    10 team standard

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Mike: No. You’re basically trading the same situation for the same situation and giving up FJax to do it. Matt Ryan looked great this week but can he sustain it? I’m not sure if he can for the whole season.

      We also know Buffalo should run more often than not so I’d hang on to F-Jax especially if Spiller winds up getting banged up again this season.

  12. rollie blaster says:
    (link)

    8 team league PPR

    drop Sammy Watkins, Emmanuel Sanders, or T.Y. Hilton for Kelvin Benjamin?

    • augie says:
      (link)

      @rollie blaster: out of those three I would drop Watkins, but I don’t like Buffalo passing game. I might be biased. E. Sanders looked very good.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @rollie blaster: Watkins can go. He has the worst QB situation of the three.

  13. augie says:
    (link)

    Both Cooks and Benjamin are available for pickup in waivers. My worst receiver is Riley Cooper. Was going tobpick b up one of the two rookies. Wasn’t sure which one I should try to grab first. There is a waiver wire and i am towards the bottom of the totum pole. Who would you rate is stronger for the rest of the season? I am back and forth. Benjamin is by himself. Cooks has a lot of other guys that could steal points. League is 0.5ppr.

    Other guy I have is Richardson which might be a waste.

    Al

    • augie says:
      (link)

      @augie: other receivers are Crabtree, Cobb and Floyd.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @augie: I would go for Cooks. The Saints have too many weapons with Colston, Graham, Toon/Stills and the RB so it allows Cooks to slip through the cracks. Benjamin is going to find a lot of coverage in Carolina since he is the only real legitimate threat at wide receiver. Cam can’t throw to Greg Olsen all the time–can he? Week 1 may have been an exception and not the rule with Derek Anderson under center and not Cam.

      I’m just about done permanently with T-Rich so I don’t have an issue with cutting him loose for Cooks. Pass on Benjamin.

  14. Orlando says:

    Hey man; I’m first in the waiver order- drop kenny Britt to add justin forsett?

    My other RB’s are gio Bernard, Ben Tate, Terrance west, MJD, gerhart, Jeremy hill & Ahmad Bradshaw . We start 2 RB’s & option of 3 with the flex.

    My other WR’s are demaryius Thomas, Crabtree, cordarrelle patterson, Kelvin Benjamin , Markus Wheaton, Malcolm Floyd (& Britt)
    We start 3 WR’s & have option of 4 with flex

    Which defense to look to add

    Texans D (@ Oakland)

    Buccaneers D (vs rams)

    Saints D (@ Cleveland)

    • Orlando says:
      (link)

      @Orlando:

      Or use #1 waiver spot to add any of these instead of forsett; Dwyer, Benny Cunningham , bobby Rainey, Lorenzo taliaferro, Allen hurns, rod streater, Brian quick, Harry Douglas or Robert woods; based on what I said above who I have for depth.

      Thanks

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        @Orlando: No. Hold on to the #1 spot. You’re going to need it later in the season to help you get through bye weeks or other injuries.

        Start Gio and Gerhart at RB (assuming the later is ok) and possibly flex a CLE RB based on the injury report.

        At WR, Go with the first three in that order. I can’t think of one to flex out of that group.

        Go for the Bucs DST. St. Louis looks like a mess now without Bradford and Shaun Hill. They might tab me to play QB since it’s getting thin there. Okay, fine, maybe Jared Lorenzen (I’m kidding).

        • Orlando says:
          (link)

          @Andrew Nordmeier:

          I don’t have #1 every week, it’ll change each week based on record, would that change how you view this? I wish it was set in stone every week #1 regardless of record but that’s not the case

          • Andrew Nordmeier

            Andrew Nordmeier says:
            (link)

            @Orlando: That changes things. A lot. I would use it on Forsett then.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Orlando: you’ve got the good waiver type, the one that doesn’t reward the team late in the year who’s never had a major injury to need to use a waiver claim (and likely due to this is already one of the top teams); the rotating one that has nothing to do with improving the worst teams is garbage. the worst teams need the help, not the best teams. Real life waivers are done by inverse record, just like yours. Parity is important and makes for good competition. The best teams don’t need to have the right to get a great/good player late in year simply due to not having needed to grab players over the course of the year.

  15. mcBlunty says:

    drop britt for forsett?

    • mcBlunty says:
      (link)

      @mcBlunty: or go for hurns and drop britt

      • Andrew Nordmeier

        Andrew Nordmeier says:
        (link)

        @mcBlunty: @mcBlunty: Go for Forsett. An RB1 on the depth chart won’t drop out of the sky every week and Britt has almost zero value.

  16. HowdyDo says:
    (link)

    Really great tip about the Friday waiver, love thinking ahead strategy tips. I have crappy #7 waiver priority in a 12 team league. I have great RB depth but Rice was my fifth RB and I’m thinking about making a claim for Forsett, Terrence West, and Jake Locker (to supplement Brady) – – in that order (dropping Rice). I doubt I’ll get either of those RBs. But in case, good move or should I not put in any claims and try to move up my waiver priority for Friday or later in the season? Might be able to grab Locker as a Free Agent . . .

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @HowdyDo: You should be able to get Locker as an FA this week since no one is thinking about him now. Let the others play the fool and make their claims and boost you up in the order.

      There’s no reason to rush to dump Rice if you have good RB depth. Keep his name in mind to be the “dumper” on your roster. What I mean by that is if someone had a colossal brain fart and dropped a huge player (i.e V-Jax), you could cut your dumper and pick him up no problems. Rice is your dumper. He makes that part of the decision making process super-easy.

  17. B says:
    (link)

    Hey folks (@andrew, @sky, everybody else) — got some big waiver wire questions…

    1. Rank these waiver TEs and what should be the high FAAB bid: Martellus Bennett, Dwayne Allen, Delanie Walker, Ladarius Green,

    2. Would you drop Rueben Randle for any of these guys and how would you order them: Steve Smith, Allen Hurns, Rod Streeter, Andrew Hawkins, Devin Hester

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @B:

      TE: Bennett, Walker (this week only), Green (Gates looked good against AZ), Allen

      WR: Smith-YES, Hurns-MAYBE leaning towards YES, Hawkins-NO, Streeter-NO, Hester-NO WAY.

      I would order the wide receivers medium rare with a loaded baked potato and a salad with honey mustard.

  18. Fielder's fatties says:
    (link)

    Drop Nicks for Forsett if he clears waivers? Is he worth #8 ww claim?

    Drop Reed for Bennett or hold to see if Reed becomes IR eligible (or Ellington or Shorts in my case).

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Fielder’s fatties: I doubt he lasts to #8 on the WW so I wouldn’t sweat it unless you’re thin at RB and insanely good at WR.

      I would drop Reed for Bennett. I’ve never been a big RGIII fan and don’t really think Washington will do much with that position. Houston held them to a pair of field goals. Reed could also be out for a few weeks.

  19. Jim Johnson says:
    (link)

    .5PPR
    Would you drop Reed to pick up Clay, Allen, Delanie, or should I trade my Fred Jackson for Greg Olsen? I have a ton of RB depth. Giovani, Ellington, Vereen, Joique, Spiller, Fjax.

    I could also do both moves potentially I guess.

  20. Andrew Nordmeier

    Andrew Nordmeier says:
    (link)

    Drop Reed for Delanie this week. Olsen was good with Anderson under center but I want to see how he is with Newton before I pull the trigger on that deal.

  21. Alex says:
    (link)

    Hey, I’m in a 10 team league & the waiver system is as it changes each week based on record.

    Here’s my roster

    QB- Matt Ryan

    RB1- lesean McCoy
    RB2- Montee ball

    WR1- Brandon Marshall
    WR2- Crabtree
    WR3- colston

    TE- Ertz

    TE/WR spot- Wheaton

    D- Bucs

    Kicker- Bryant

    Bench- Andre Ellington, Stephan Taylor, CJ Anderson , Stevan Ridley, Jordan Matthews, Justin Hunter

    Would Stephan Taylor be the drop? Or CJ Anderson?

    I’m looking into adding one of these;
    Malcolm Floyd, Marqise lee, Brian quick, rod streater, Harry Douglas, Robert woods, Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris ivory, dexter mccluster, James Starks or Lorenzo taliaferro.

    With this week being at the middle of the pack at 5, I’m sure it’ll change next week too, I don’t think I’d be able to land forsett, or ivory but wouldn’t hurt to try but I have a feeling they will already be gone .

    Thanks!

    • And Now The Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
      (link)

      @Alex: def drop both of anderson/taylor for bradshaw and ivory in that order. Matthews could be droppable for streater,quick or lee (in that order). i’m curious what ranking you used to end up with taylor/anderson over ivory/bradshaw in first place.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Alex: Taylor is the drop for me. And i would add either Bradshaw if you want another RB or Floyd is you want a WR.

  22. Scott says:

    Have white, Colston, Fitzgerald, Douglas, Hawkins , Hester and Avery which 3 should I start?

    Also gates, kelce, wright at te

    And ball, west , Richardson at rb

    Have to pick 3 wr 2 rb 1 te and 1 flex

    Thanks!!!

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:

      @Scott:

      WR: White, Colston and Fitz
      TE: Kelce (Chiefs will throw a ton)
      RB: Ball and West

      FX:Richardson because I’m not crazy about the other options (I assume it’s a W/R flex.)

  23. Scott says:
    (link)

    Sorry also gb or Detroit defense

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Scott: Detroit. Carolina should be a lot of ground and pound which plays to Detroit’s strength after they stopped the Giants’ run game Monday. I’m not sure what to expect out of GB with 10 days since last game and a couple of good RBs waiting to challenge them in Johnson and Ivory.

  24. Anthony says:
    (link)

    Here we go, rapid fire questions!!!! Uno, dos, tres…..! PPR League!

    1) Better TE play this week; Ertz or Gresham (CIN)

    2) Better flex play this week; Boldin, Rainey, Wheaton (PIT), or Bradshaw

    3) Better D this week; Saints or Redskins

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Anthony:

      1. Ertz 2. Boldin 3. Saints but they could give up garbage time yards/scores.

  25. Drussss says:
    (link)

    drop Amendola or Kenny Stills and pick up Robert Woods or Malcolm Floyd? 1pt PPR league.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Drussss: Amendola for Floyd. Amendola is a sneeze away from IR at any given moment. Floyd looked good against Arizona and if Keenan Allen doesn’t look sharp, Floyd is going to be a nice find.

  26. Velocity_X says:
    (link)

    Another victim of Reed here in two leagues. Luckily I also have Pitta in one of them. But for the other, should I pick up Kelce or Allen for week 2? Any thoughts ROS (even though it’s early)?

    Also, I’d love to keep Reed but he worries me and I value roster space. Drop Reed or drop a benchwarmer like Sammy Watkins or Dalton (backup to Stafford right now)? Thanks.

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Velocity_X: Kelce–the Chiefs will throw a lot. I like him ROS too. Alex Smith could make Kelce thrive in a short passing game when Charles isn;t an option.

      Drop Reed. He should be out for “a few weeks” so he’ll fade out of people’s memories quickly.

      Who was I taking about there? (See, already happening.)

  27. Bobby says:
    (link)

    Hey, I had the number one spot in the waiver order this AM (waiver order changes week to week based on standings)
    I used it to add forsett, but now I’m hearing the ravens want to use pierce as the starter/ feature back & forsett as a change of pace back.

    That being said hang onto forsett or cut him loose? I’d hate to cut him loose & he plays well still, these are who are available Darren McFadden (I own MJD), mccluster, Dwyer, taliaferro, Benny Cunningham , and at WR: Harry Douglas, denarius Moore, Nate Washington, Andre Caldwell, john brown

    My RB’s; gio Bernard, Tate (out 2-4 weeks), Ahmad Bradshaw, Jeremy hill, Terrance west, forsett, MJD & gerhart- we start two

    At WR: demaryius Thomas, Crabtree, cordarrelle patterson, Kelvin Benjamin , Markus Wheaton & Malcolm Floyd. We start 3.

    There’s a RB/WR/TE flex too

    • Andrew Nordmeier

      Andrew Nordmeier says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: Hold steady. Pierce had an awful game in Week 1 and should be on a short leash Thursday.

      DMC is healthy now but for how much longer? Pass on the other RBs since they are just depth guys on rosters while Forsett will get touches.

      Nate Washington is an interesting proposition for this week at WR against Allas but the rest are just deeper options.

    This is my first year in Fantasy Football and it is in 14 man standard. Need some help… I have the 4th Waiver and it rotates every week. Should I stay pat? Everyone mentioned in the blog is gone. Thank you and appreciate your work and help.

    QB – Rivers
    RB – Forte, Ball, Ivory, Bell
    WR – Jeffery, White, Wright, Nicks
    TE – Kelce
    K – Novack, Nugent
    D – Vikings, Bucs
