Lots to get to after Week 2 in the NFL, starting with this week’s hot waiver wire adds:
Cam Newton, Panthers [432-1-3; 10-53-1]
OK, I now can recommend a rookie QB without hesitation. Newton can fill up the stat sheet.
Matt Hasselbeck, Titans [358-1-1]
Chris Johnson cannot run now that he got paid, so the Titans have to score somehow.
Jason Campbell, Raiders [323-2-1; 3-3-1]
Another nice game for Campbell, who has a ton of explosive weapons on offense.
Dexter McCluster, Chiefs [8-51; 4-(-2)]
If you added McCluster last week, you are sitting pretty right now for those Jamaal Charles’ touches coming his way.
Darren Sproles, Saints [4-17; 8-43-1]
Clearly a viable fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues with a flex spot.
Roy Helu, Redskins [10-74; 3-38]
Nice outing even with Tim Hightower playing well.
Javon Ringer, Titans [5-21-1; 2-30]
Chris Johnson could not get the job done, so Ringer came in to score a touchdown.
Isaac Redman, Steelers [10-49-1; 1-6]
Speculative add. Mentioned him before the start of the season as a breakout candidate.
Eric Decker, Broncos [5-113-2]
Benefited from the absences of several Broncos’ wide receivers.
Denarius Moore, Raiders [5-146-1; 1-25]
No Jacoby Ford, more targets for Moore. He did well with them, too.
Nate Washington, Titans [7-99]
Second-consecutive decent outing for Washington. Titans’ passing game a slight surprise.
Devery Henderson, Saints [3-103-1]
With Marques Colston out, Henderson will continue to have impact.
Deion Branch, Patriots [8-129]
So many options in this offense, but the Pats throw so dang much that everyone is valuable (except Chad OchoCinco).
Jerome Simpson, Bengals [4-136]
Bengals had a surge in passing against the Broncos, not expected to be consistent but something to watch.
Dustin Keller, Jets [6-101-1]
I liked Keller coming into the year but did not get him on any teams. Regret.
Fred Davis, Redskins [6-86-1]
Davis backed up a strong week 1 with another good outing. Breakout candidate in the making.
Here are today’s great reads:
- The Broncos were really, really short at wide receiver on Sunday after Eddie Royal left the game with an injury. So they turned to Tim Tebow to play receiver. Anything to get that guy on the field will make the Broncos’ fans happy! [ProFootballTalk]
- The Cowboys needed a 77-yard reception from Jesse Holley on Sunday to beat the 49ers in overtime in San Francisco. If you are a reality TV fan, you will remember Holley from Michael Irvin’s 4th and Long program on SpikeTV. [The Big Lead]
