Top Adds

Your league mates will likely be going after them also so be aggressive when targeting your player needs.

Jerick McKinnon – McKinnon's dynamic playmaking ability means that he should already be owned in your league but if he is not, spend up heavy to get him on your team. McKinnon will put up starter numbers while Adrian Peterson recovers from a torn meniscus.

Quincy Enunwa – Enunwa's Week 1 performance was not enough for me to believe he was Fantasy relevant. Well, now I'm sold. Enunwa leads the Jets in targets through two weeks.

Jamison Crowder – Trust me when I tell you Crowder will lead the Washington passing game in receptions and targets this season. Get him now before he becomes a name all Fantasy owners are going after.

Sam Bradford – Yeah, this is awkward, I'm about to write something positive about Sam Bradford. Bradford was surprisingly impressive versus a tough Packers secondary on Sunday. With top wideout Stefon Diggs looking like a breakout Fantasy star, Bradford is worth an add in two-QB leagues and could be a streaming option in 12 team leagues.

Jeremy Kerley – One of the most dropped players after Week 1 was Niners’ wideout Torrey Smith. Kerley looks like the wide receiver that will benefit from the volume in Chip Kelly's system; he already has 10 receptions on 17 targets in the young season.

Dennis Pitta – Last week, Pitta was mentioned as a "dolla make ya holla” add. After Week 2’s nine receptions for 102 yards, you will have to pay up for Pitta. Joe Flacco loves to target his tight ends. A healthy Pitta will have a big season. Great to see him back on the field.

Phillip Dorsett – I mentioned Dorsett as a top add last week, maybe this week you will actually listen. Donte Moncrief's shoulder injury will open up targets for Dorsett in the Colts’ Fantasy-friendly passing game.

Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne  – Whittaker carried the ball well in place of the injured Jonathan Stewart, toting the pill for over 100 yards on 16 carries. Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has already said Stewart will miss time so make Whittaker a priority if you need running back help. Cameron Artis-Payne could be an add also, but Whittaker is the primary guy to pursue.

Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake – So it took Arian Foster about a week and a quarter to suffer a soft tissue injury. Listen if you need RB help, Jay Ajayi will likely get the first crack at carrying the mail, but I would put a claim in on Kenyan Drake. Dolphins HC Adam Gase is a not fan of Ajayi.

Matt Asiata – McKinnon is the guy to target in the Vikings’ backfield but if he is already owned in your league, don’t be afraid to target Asiata. He will get enough carries to be Fantasy relevant also, particularly at the goal line.

Brock Osweiler – I had Brock as a 10-team league add last week. After further review, he is not as highly owned in 12-team leagues as he should be. I will say it again: a 30-touchdown season is on deck.

Dwayne Washington – Washington will get more carries as Ameer Abdullah recovers from a foot injury. Washington is a player that I think can really have an impact, he is on your waiver wire. The Fantasy Executive will be adding him everywhere.  

Dolla Make Ya Holla Adds

Guys you can get for close to nothing in FAAB leagues but temper your expectations.

Danny Amendola – I know how much the Fantasy industry loves Chris Hogan, but a dollar on Danny Amendola could go a long way when Tom Brady returns.

Jack Doyle – Don't get me started but here is the truth through two weeks: Doyle has more Fantasy points than Dwayne Allen.

Mike Tolbert – Legendary end zone dancer and touchdown vulture will get goal line work and catch a few passes.

Dontrelle Inman – Any healthy San Diego Chargers playmaker is worth a dollar bid.

Adam Humphries – The third wideout in Tampa has 13 targets on the young season. If an injury occurs to Evans or Jackson (knock on wood), Hump will be massively added. Stash him while you still can.

10-Team League Adds

These guys should be owned in 12-team leagues, but owners in a 10-team league could find these gems on the waiver wire.

Isaiah Crowell – Hue Jackson's running game coupled with Cody Kessler at quarterback means that Crowell should be added in your 10-team league.

Charles Sims – His 2 yards per carry sucks but the pass-catching prowess should not be on waiver wires in 10-team PPR leagues.

Terrance West – Just a matter of time before he is the primary back in the Charm City. Beat your other nine league mates to Mr. West.

Mike Wallace – The top option in the Baltimore’s passing game keeps scoring touchdowns. You may be short two league mates, but I’m sure touchdowns still count.
