Will Fuller WR Houston Texans 9.1% Owned– Who would have thought the star of the Bears Texans game would have been this guy. While star wide outs Alshon Jeffery and Deandre Hopkins took the spotlight Will Fuller stole the show. 5 catches 107 yards and a touchdown was a pretty impressive game for the rookie. With a brand new offense Fuller is shaping up to be the second guy there behind Hopkins but Osweiler wasn’t afraid to throw it to Fuller, in more than one occasion with two defenders on him. The play of the game may have come from Fuller as Osweiler quickly checked down to him and Fuller caught the ball at his ankles and made defenders miss then getting in the end zone. Just to catch the ball was impressive but to get the composure to fight for more yards and get in the end zone this kid is special. Fuller is a perfect add for wide receiver depth as we’ve already seen Keenan Allen and Sammy Watkins sustain injuries.
Spencer Ware RB Kanas City Chiefs 32.1% Owned– Probably the cream of the crop for waivers and if you don’t have the first or second waiver you probably won’t end up with him but he was monstrous. 70 yards rushing with a touchdown and 129 through the air on 8 catches. Out receiving the likes of Julio Jones and Odell Beckham. Ware wouldn’t be such a good add for me if Charles was coming back in week 2 but Andy Reid has already said that Charles’ availability Sunday is in question and saying that on Monday isn’t promising. Ware made the most of his opportunity and is a top 10 play as long as Charles is out, even when he returns Ware is flex worthy. With Charles uncertain status who knows when he’ll be back to 100% if Ware is on your waiver put a claim in and pray he lands on your team.
Jason Witten TE Dallas Cowboys 51.2% Owned– In Dak Prescott’s first game Dez saw only one catch (sorry Dez owners) but Dak found other options. As a rookie in his first game Dak found his security blanket in Jason Witten. 9 catches on 14 targets for 66 yards. 14 targets! As bad as tight ends were in week 1 many owners might be scrambling to find better options but it will be tough to find someone that gets that many looks. Dak kept it short and between the hashes to Witten 9 times and Cole Beasley 8 times, these targets should translate to the red zone as long as Dak is behind center Witten is a good play. Owned in roughly half of leagues on NFL.com he may not be available other tight ends to consider: Dwayne Allen or Eric Ebron also showed good signs in week 1.
Joe Flacco QB Baltimore Ravens 9.2% Owned– In week 1 verse the Bills Flacco did not light up the scoreboard but he did show that he is very close if not all the way recovered from his torn ACL. He had some very promising plays including a long touchdown to Mike Wallace. The real reason Joe Flacco is on my list for week 2 is his matchup with the Cleveland Browns. Coming off a game where rookie QB Carson Wentz found great success and the Browns really had no answer for the Eagles offense. Flacco and his veteran presence should handle the Browns poor defense with ease and is the top streaming quarterback for me this week and cracks my top 10.
Jalen Richard RB Oakland Raiders 0.1% Owned– 75-yard touchdown. Wow. The rookie came into the game and instantly made an impact shredding New Orleans for a 75-yard score although pretty quiet after that his one big run defiantly got the coaching staff’s attention. After that big run he was in the game for a large amount of time as the Raiders made their comeback. I should note that the Raiders coaching staff isn’t entirely sold on leading back Latavius Murray. The Raiders backfield is a bit crowded but if Richard keeps showing explosive signs it could be his offense sooner rather than later. A good player to stash on your bench for a week or two and see if his production grows.
