We’re one week in, but that’s never too early to scour the waiver wire and make some last-minute adjustments. Here’s out Top waiver wire pick-ups for Week 2.
Harry Douglas, WR – Atlanta (6% owned in Yahoo! leagues)
With Roddy White still “undetermined” with a high ankle sprain and Julio Jones banged up, Harry comes in as the best receiving option for the Falcons (besides Gonzo who’s a must start). Harry had a decent game last week (4/83/0) even with Roddy and Julio in the lineup. Atlanta will still look to air it out, and Harry’s in line to get a lot of looks. He’s a WR3 or Flex option.
Terrelle Pryor, QB – Oakland (25%)
Yes, we’re telling you to pick up an Oakland Raider, and, if you want to shake things up and look like a fantasy stud, we’re telling you to start him.
Pryor makes the Raiders mildly entertaining to watch. He had good stats against Indy last week, (217/1/2) but add to that 112 rushing yards, and that’s where his value really shows. Pryor is in line to have a monster game today.
The Raiders are at home and playing Jacksonville. The Jags are a decent pop-warner team. Seriously, they’re awful, as in already playing for the #1 draft pick awful (their streak of 6 Top 10 First Round picks is not in jeopardy). The Raiders should have no problem moving the ball against the Jags, and Pryor should be able to rack up good number both in the air and on the ground.
I’d start Pryor over the likes of Romo, RGIII, and yes, Russell Wilson.
Joique’s value has skyrocketed this week, he’s gone from owned by nobody to now 75% of Yahoo! leagues. If he happens to still be available in yours, pick him up immediately.
Bell had a great game last week, only 25 yards rushing but he added 2 tds and also caught 5 balls for 67 yards. Plus, add into the mix that it’s only a matter of time before Reggie Bush gets injured, and picking up Joique now (on the cheap) will help your club down the road. Even with Bush in the mix today, Bell has a good matchup against a weak Cardinals D.
