We are in to the second week of the NFL season, and already people are having to scour the waiver wire. If you have lost that early draft pick already, you are busy this weekend trying to figure out exactly how to fill that hole in your roster. There are some intriguing players to consider grabbing - but which ones are most likely to score you some big points this week? We take a look at some waiver wire pickups you should be considering this week.
Donte Moncrief, WR
The Indianapolis Colts will have to look to Moncrief more this week as TY Hilton is dealing with a knee injury. There is a little danger here, as the Colts do not play until Monday, so if anything strange happens, you cannot make an adjustment, but given the six passes for 46 yards and a touchdown he had against the Buffalo Bills last week, he is probably not just a waiver wire pick up for the week, but someone you need to consider holding on to for the year.
DeAngelo Williams, RB
The suspension for Le'Veon Bell ends after this week, so this is the last chance for Williams to be the top runner for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Williams ran for 127 yards on 27 carries last week, and should again be the only running back seeing touches against the San Francisco 49ers. Use him this week, then drop him as Bell comes back.
Tyler Eifert, TE
This seems like a strange one to add on here after the big game he had last week, but Eifert is only owned in around 80 percent of leagues. He was the top fantasy tight end last week in FanDuel leagues, and he is still not being picked up across the boards. Eifert will be a focal point of the Cincinnati Bengals' offense all year, and there is no reason to not grab him if he is still available.
Eric Ebron, TE
Go grab Ebron and stash him on your bench. He's probably available, and should absolutely be your backup tight end, if not your starter. Ebron led the Detroit Lions last week with 53 yards receiving, catching for passes and scoring a touchdown.Like Eifert in Cincinnati, Ebron appears to be a major portion of the Detroit offense. At least you will be stopping someone else from grabbing him, if you have a starter already in place.
