Waiver Wire: Week 2 Adds

Some players to consider adding this week if they are available in your league:

QB Trent Edwards (BUF): With all the talk about Favre (Jets) and Brady’s knee (Patriots), I think people have forgotten that the best team in this division right now might be the Bills. Edwards has looked sharp this year. The Bills defense and running game will make things easier on Edwards. Do not expect Brady-like performances, but he is worth a bench spot for now.

WR Justin Gage (TEN): I have talked about him a couple times already, so you can tell I am somewhat high on him. The Titans are a run-first team, but with Collins at QB they will have a better passing attack, and I think Gage will benefit the most.

RB Pierre Thomas (NO): Deuce McAllister may never be the same. Reggie Bush cannot run between the tackles. So Thomas should get enough touches to make him valuable. And he is the goal line back.

RB Darren Sproles: As I mentioned in a previous post, LT is injured and has not looked even remotely close to his usual self this year. Add Sproles and wait. If LT misses any time, Sproles could be a very good fantasy player.

TE John Carlson (SEA): I am not sure who else there is in Seattle to catch the ball. Update: Apparently, the Seahawks are going to add WR Koren Robinson to the roster when/if he passes a physical. I doubt he will make much of an impact right away (or at all), but he is a guy to watch. They really do not have anyone to catch passes up there.

RB Michael Bush (OAK): McFadden will not practice early this week due to his turf toe injury and I expect Fargas to miss a few weeks (we will know for sure when his MRI results are in), so Bush might be a good pickup. Even if McFadden is healthy, he will get some carries with Fargas out. But if McFadden misses any time, Bush will carry the load.

WR Chansi Stuckey (NYJ): He might be gone after his TD catch in week 1, but he showed that he will be in the mix with another TD in week 2. Favre tends to spread the ball around a lot, which can be good and bad. I think the Jets will be playing from behind a lot this year, so all three of their WRs might be worth roster spots.
