If you’re in a 12- to 14-team fantasy football league, chances are your waiver wire is drier than an aquaphobic person’s swimming trunks.
But fear not, brave divers. There’s still talent to be found at wide receiver heading into Week 2, even in the deep end of larger fantasy football pools.
By now, you likely have heard of the hot names at wide receiver. Some that come to mind include Kevin Ogletree, Randall Cobb, James Jones, Alshon Jeffery, Stephen Hill and Dexter McCluster.
And chances are that either you have already proven to be a diligent fantasy manager by scooping up one or more of these players or you were late to the party and are scrounging for leftovers.
If your case is the latter, this article is for you. The following players aren’t superstars and likely won’t be in 2012. They are, however, useful pickups to help you out at wide receiver if you’re in a pinch in deeper leagues.
