NFL Fantasy Football: Waiver Wire Advice

Where to begin with the NFL nowadays? For starters, we can begin with saying hallelujah that we all survived Week 1 or maybe not so much. Fantasy football owners are either rejoicing or beating their heads against the wall after last week’s emotional roller coaster.

With Week 1 in the bag, injuries seemed to be more common than touchdowns. Regardless, you may be looking for a short term fix or a long term solution on the waiver wire. There are some layers who might be potential waiver wire busts or who have downside. This list is designed to point out factors that could impact or limit their production.

We bring you the top list here:

RB Chris Ivory – New York Jets

Chris Ivory still continues to split in snaps and carries in the Jets backfield. Johnson got 12 carries and only averaged 1.8 yards per carry. Until the Jets utilize Ivory more he will remain a risky play. Still, with the injury bug running rampant in the league, he might be worth the risk.

RB Donald Brown - San Diego Chargers

Donald Brown! He will see a large increase in work as Ryan Mathews is out with a sprained MCL. Having Mathews out is a big loss to the San Diego Chargers offense, who will try to replace his production with a combination of Brown and Danny Woodhead.

He has nine carries for 19 yards and a 2.1 yards-per-carry average through two games in San Diego. Not something super impressive, but he is a better option than some other players out there.

RB Khiry Robinson - New Orleans Saints

Khiry Robinson takes the field due to the broken hand Mark Ingram suffered in Week 2.
According to sbnation.com, “Robinson was getting limited work behind Ingram and through two games only has 14 carries for 59 yards and one touchdown while averaging 4.2 yards per carry.”

Sources say his workload should increase, but without Ingram to soften the defense we just have to wait and see how he handles the increase. At the end of the say, he is a risky play considering Pierre Thomas is in the works.

TE Niles Paul - Washington

NO RISK HERE! Niles Paul is seeing playing time due to the latest injury to second-year tight end Jordan Reed. In Week 2, Paul had eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown. He had the most targets with 11, and run over the Jacksonville Jaguars secondary playing without Jonathan Cyprien. Pick this kid up because he will definitely bring home some numbers.
