Remember to remain vigilant as we move into the middle of the 2021 NFL season, as complacent teams often end up suffering over time. The key to sustained success is to keep hawking those waiver wires.

When waivers roll around later this week, it’s important to stay ahead of the game and keep track of players from the big slate of Sunday afternoon games. Here are two players who might be worth a waiver claim this week.

In the wake of the Miles Sanders injury news, most of us expected this to be a Kenneth Gainwell game. Instead, Boston Scott stole our hearts and fantasy points, finishing the game with 12 rushes for 60 yards and two touchdowns. He also saw one target but was unable to haul it in.
