Well we are (nearly) done with the first week of 2022 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 2 Waiver Wire pickups. Making the right moves on the waiver wire is how you can really win your league. Getting those upside depth pieces, and cutting the players that are going to struggle from your roster is going to help you going forwards
Rules for Selection & Order Priority
For a player to be considered to be added, they have to:
- Have an rostered % of 50% or under on ESPN
- Players below are listed by their roster %, not priority. Know your league settings. If there is a high-priority add, you’ll know.
Matt Ryan (IND) @JAX 24.3% rostered
Ok, it didn’t exactly go to plan last week against the Texans. The Colts offense made hard work of going up against the Texans defense. This week, he matches up against a Jaguars offense that allowed Carson Wentz to throw for over 250 yards and 3 TDs.
Carson Wentz (WAS) @DET 16.7% rostered
Wentz might have turned the ball over twice, and yes it was the Jaguars defense he was up against, but he looked solid enough. He connected up nicely with Terry McLaurin on some deep balls, and next up matches up against a Detroit offense that just gave up multiple scores to the Eagles.
Baker Mayfield (CAR) @NYG 18.0% rostered
Mayfield managed to weather the storm of the Browns defensive line nicely. His fantasy week was saved by a rushing TD, but he matches up against a softer Giants defense this week.
Others to Consider
- Jameis Winston (NO) v TB 36.4% rostered
- Jacoby Brissett (CLE) v NYJ 1.2% rostered
