Fantasy Football Week 2: 3 Free Agents You Should Add and Start
With the Monday Night Football doubleheader in the books, there are likely a lot of disappointed fantasy owners scouring the fantasy football waiver wire. Here are three free agents you should add to your team and start in Week 2.
QB: Chad Henne (Miami Dolphins)
Henne had a monster performance in Week 1 against the New England Patriots. With Reggie Bush serving as the starting running back it just makes more sense for the Dolphins to throw the ball instead of trying to establish the run.
Miami takes on the Houston Texans next and they allowed nearly 200 yards and a touchdown to Kerry Collins, who was clearly rusty for the Indianapolis Colts. Henne won't match his season opening totals, but he should top 300 yards with a touchdown or two.

RB: Cadillac Williams (St. Louis Rams)
With Steven Jackson expected to miss St. Louis' game against the New York Giants. That means Williams will step in and start for the Rams. Judging by his workload after Jackson got injured in Week 1, he'll be the featured back and won't have to split carries.
That makes him a hot fantasy commodity. If your league uses a bidding system to claim free agents, feel free to put in a sizable offer for Williams. Quad injuries are not easy to come back from, especially for running backs, so the former Tampa Bay running back could hold the job for a while.

WR: Jacoby Jones (Houston Texans)
Kevin Walter might miss the game with a shoulder ailment and that would boost Jones' value even further, but even if Walter plays, Jones is worth picking up. He had a punt return touchdown and three catches for 43 yards in Week 1.
Somebody is going to have to step up alongside Andre Johnson for the Texans' offense to have staying power for the entire season and Jones has the ability to be a solid No. 2 receiver. His big-play potential against a Miami defense that was torched by Tom Brady and Co. is a solid play.
