Week 2 of the NFL season was not kind to some of the biggest names in fantasy football, as several players suffered what appear to be serious injuries that will shift the balance of power in fantasy football leagues. The waiver wire will continue to become more important as we move forward in the 2020 NFL season, especially with all of these injuries piling up.
Deciding on which players to target on the waiver wire will boil down to usage rates, snap percentages, quality of offense and opportunities. The following are some of the most intriguing players to target on waiver wires ahead of Week 3 — including a few vastly under-rostered players worthy of a stash.
Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick – 1.1% Rostered
The veteran continues to defy time with solid fantasy football performances, even against great defenses like the Buffalo Bills. Even a stinker of a performance in Week 1 isn’t holding Fitz back, as he currently ranks as the QB19 after finishing as QB8 this week.
Fitz ripped off 328 yards passing and two passing touchdowns, along with 12 rushing yards in the contest. While the Harvard Rifle isn’t going to be a weekly starter in redraft leagues, he could be a starting option as a streamer or in superflex leagues and other leagues with deep rosters.
