Blowing big money on the wrong players during fantasy football waiver wire bidding is the fastest way to finish dead last. Not only are you adding players who won’t help your team, but you are also wasting valuable dollars that could be spent more efficiently elsewhere.

It's important to aggressively add preferred targets, of course. (Here are my Week 3 waiver-wire targets.)
The following players are all garnering buzz on the Week 2 waiver wire, but their long-term outlook is not worth chasing. These players are more likely to be dropped after Week 3 than become fantasy-relevant.
Do not trust McKissic's stat line from Thursday night, as the Washington scatback benefitted from a perfect situation — the two-minute drill. McKissic played 19 of 31 snaps and earned seven of his nine touches with the Football Team’s two-minute offense. It was the sole reason he was on the field for the touchdown run — in most cases, Washington's starting running back Antonio Gibson would deliver the plunge into the end zone.
With no guarantee that Washington will run 19 plays every week from the two-minute offense, McKissic is, at best, fool’s gold. His 46% route run per dropback rate only slightly increased from Week 1 (33% versus 46%), suggesting his uptick in production was not a result of a role change.
