Week 2 Waiver Wire: Top Pickups and Drops

Julius Thomas' coming-out party will make him the most popular pickup off Week 2's waiver wire.

You might have "earned" the No. 1 waiver priority with your Week 1 disaster, but consider it a blessing in disguise. You get the first pickings of a pretty good class of free agents now.

Hardly anyone goes undefeated in fantasy football. There are just too many variables out of a fantasy owner's control week to week.

We help you load up for fantasy Week 2 here as we dissect the top options who are likely available on your waiver wire. We cannot precisely project who is actually available in each of your leagues, so we use the fantasy ownership data from ESPN leagues and focus on the players underowned there.

There should be ample quarterbacks (Philip Rivers, Carson Palmer and Matt Schaub), wide receivers (Julian Edelman, Eddie Royal and DeAndre Hopkins) and tight ends (Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron and Martellus Bennett) to go around, but we are left to dig deeper into the running back pool. It is truly the toughest position in fantasy to stock, and Week 1 didn't give us a big injury to take advantage of.

We have all of your waiver candidates to add, monitor and even ignore in this slideshow.
