Well, just like that week one has come and passed. Lots of first-round running backs laid eggs (looking at you Adrian Peterson, Devonta Freeman and Todd Gurley), while the top wide receivers and quarterbacks showed why they’re the best at their positions.
An important aspect of putting together a solid fantasy football season is landing the top waiver wire adds each week. Here are some guys that you should prioritize higher than other players to add for Week Two:
(1.) Tajae Sharpe, WR (TEN):
The late-round flyer in many leagues proved that he does indeed have fantasy value after a seven-catch, 76-yard performance in Week One. He had 11 targets from Marcus Mariota, and figures to be a main fixture of the Titans offense moving forward. With a lack of wideout talent around him, I would not be surprised if Sharpe reaches the 80-catch mark this season, while getting close, if not surpassing, the 1000-yard mark as well.
(2.) Will Fuller, WR (HOU):
Fuller and new Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler have quite the connection. The two hooked up five times for 107 yards, the most of any receiver in the game, in Week One. Fuller nearly had twice as many receiving yards as DeAndre Hopkins, who finished with five catches and 54 yards. Additionally, Fuller led the team in targets with 11, as Hopkins had just eight.
(3.) Tyrell Williams, WR (SD):
Injuries are already hitting the San Diego Chargers with the injury bug biting Keenan Allen already with a torn ACL in Week One. With a large number of targets up for grabs in San Diego, Williams could be a key beneficiary of the injury. Travis Benjamin will still be a starting wide receiver, but Williams will likely start across from him in the Chargers offense for Week Two.
(4.) Kyle Rudolph, TE (MIN):
Yes, the loss of Teddy Bridgewater is drastic to the Minnesota Vikings passing attack, but Rudolph didn’t miss a step with Shaun Hill under center. Rudolph pulled in four passes for 65 yards and was targeted eight times, which was good for second on the team.
Outside of Adrian Peterson, Rudolph could be the best red zone target for Minnesota. Stefon Diggs and Cordarelle Patterson figure to receive some red zone looks, but the 6-foot-6 Rudolph should thrive in the red zone this season.
(5.) Tevin Coleman, RB (ATL):
It seems as if Atlanta will actually deploy their split carry strategy between Coleman and Devonta Freeman. It has been said that head coach Dan Quinn will roll with a 50/50 split to start games and then lean toward the hot hand once one running back stands out.
In Week One, Freeman had 15 touches for 40 yards while Coleman had 13 touches for 117 yards. Coleman could receive more touches in Week Two following his impressive performance in Week One.
