Fantasy Football 2012: Top 30 Waiver-Wire Pickups Heading into Week 2

Cowboys WR Kevin Ogletree, a relative no-name to start the season, stumped the Giants for eight catches, 114 yards and two touchdowns last week.

Here's my listing of the top 30 free agents (12-team, standard-scoring leagues) heading into Week 2—a countdown that values long-term viability over one week of superb stats.

Obviously, free-agent quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez, Kevin Kolb and Christian Ponder are the likeliest candidates for most points from Sunday to Sunday.

But I would place an equal or higher priority on landing possible dynamos at receiver and running back...ahead of a quarterback who may only draw one start all season (a star QB's bye week).
