FFB Waiver Wire (September 13, 2022)

NFL Week 1 is in the books. Heading into Week 2, let's look at a few players who we will target and are available in most leagues:


  • Carson Wentz (QB, 16% owned) had a solid Week 1 w/ over 27 fantasy points. We are not ready to call Wentz a top 10 option, but he is worth using in 2 QB leagues and as a streaming option.

  • I can't remember a season where more RB talent was available after just one week of football. It starts with Darrell Henderson (RB, 50% owned), our top pick-up this week, who lead the Los Angeles Rams in snaps and carries in Week 1. Henderson outsnapped Cam Akers 54 to 12.

  • Our second favorite pickup this week is San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson, Jr. (5% owned), who will take over as the top option with Elijah Mitchell projected to miss 8 weeks.

  • Another RB high on our radar is Khalil Herbert (25% owned), who out-performed starter David Montgomery in Week 1 for the Chicago Bears. Herbert is the better fit for this offense and should win the job before the end of the season.

  • Baker Mayfield and the Carolina Panthers had a very clear top receiving target in Week 1. Against the Browns, Robby Anderson (WR, 35% owned) led the Panthers in receptions, targets, and yards while playing 100% of snaps. He is our third favorite pick-up and our top WR to add.

  • The New York Jets threw the ball 59 times in Week 1 and that may not change as they should find themselves trailing in games more often than not. Corey Davis (WR, 4% owned) finished the game with 6 catches on 9 targets, 77 yards, and a TD.

  • Now teamed up with Tom Brady in Tampa, Julio Jones (WR, 44% owned) looks like the guy we've always known him to be. Jones flashes high-end speed in Week 1 and should see plenty of opportunities for the Bucs with Chris Godwin sideline with yet another leg injury.

  • For those streaming TE, or possibly those who drafted George Kittle despite our warnings, we like Tyler Higbee (50% owned), who saw 9 targets in Week 1 and currently leads the league in targets among TEs. Odell is gone and the Rams were noticeable shallow at WR in that Week 1 game. Higbee should continue to see a consistent volume of targets moving forward.
