Fantasy Football Update 9/15/16: Week 2 Waiver Wire Picks
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Picks for Week 2
September 15, 2016
Week 2 in the NFL is officially upon us, and that means it’s time to check out the fantasy football waiver wire to see if there’s anyone out there who can help your team. Let’s examine a few of the notable adds right now and see if we can find some good fits for your roster.
Tyrell Williams, WR, San Diego Chargers: Williams is quite possibly the most-added waiver wire player out there right now, and for good reason. With superstar receiver Keenan Allan out of action for the rest of the year, Williams leads the pack in terms of potential.

Williams caught two of his five targets in Week 1 for 71 yards, and will definitely see an up-tick in workload. the Chargers will start the healing process this weekend against the Jaguars.
Baltimore Ravens Defense: The major streaming option on the defensive side of the ball this week—if you can still get them—is the Baltimore Ravens. They’re coming off seven points allowed and two sacks against the Bills.
The good news here is that the Ravens play the hapless Browns this weekend, and should see lots of points in fantasy terms. Their upcoming schedule over the next handful of weeks isn’t too bad, either.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons: Sanu is coming off a nice outing against the Buccaneers, logging five receptions on eight targets for 80 yards and a TD.
For fantasy purposes, Sanu looks promising this weekend, as he’ll be going against the Raiders. Oakland allowed Willie Snead to bang nine catches and 172 yards with a score in Week 1, and Sanu will be hoping for a similar performance.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons: Let’s stick with the Falcons for a moment and check out Coleman. In Week 1, he snagged eight rushes for 22 yards, but the impressive part was his 5-of-6 receiving performance that yielded a nice 95-yard total.
Don’t expect Coleman to be a terror on the ground against Oakland; they’re pretty good in that area. Still, he may find some holes catching the ball out of the backfield, so PPR owners take note.
Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts: Those fantasy owners digging deep for a TE might want to kick around Doyle. He snagged four targets and three catches for 35 yards and two scores in Week 1 against the Lions.
Doyle seems to have taken on Coby Fleener’s role as a possession guy, and may keep taking looks away from Dwayne Allen. Doyle is touchdown-dependent, however, so he’s still a deeper-league play right now.
