Waiver Wire Adds for Week 2RB:Austin Ekeler Womens Lamar Jackson Jersey , Los Angeles ChargersWeek 1 Projection: 6.4 PTSWeek 1 Outcome: 23.6 PTS39 Rushing YDS, 5 Receptions, 87 Receiving YDS, 1 Receiving TD, available in 89 % of leaguesDespite losing their season opener to the long ball of Patrick Mahomes, the Chargers offense showed major strides. Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon were terrific as usual, but the injury that knocked Hunter Henry out for 2018 (ACL) opened up some targets for Austin Ekeler, and he delivered. I think this offense can possibly sustain two high-level work horse backs like the Saints did last year. Ekeler is high priority for me this week.Photo by Harry How/Getty ImagesT.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville JaguarsWeek 1 Projection: 6.2 PTSWeek 1 Outcome: 15.9 PTS51 Rushing YDS, 3 Receptions, 18 Receiving YDS, Receiving TD, available in 92% of leaguesAs of right now, the status of Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is up in the air for Week 2. While the former LSU star rehabs , TJ Yeldon emerged as a top waiver-wire add for Week 2. He was given most of the snaps vs. the Giants rather than splitting them with Corey Grant. He is a top-20 running back in Week 2.Photo by Mike Lawrie/Getty ImagesPhillip Lindsay, Denver BroncosWeek 1 Projection: 4.7 PTSWeek 1 Outcome: 18.2 PTS71 Rushing YDS, 2 Receptions, 31 Receiving YDS, 1 Receiving TDAvailable in 97.6 % of ESPN LeaguesAfter all of the preseason buzz surrounding the Broncos backfield, it appears the experts may have selected the wrong rookie half back. While Royce Freeman surely will get his, all of the talk around Mile High is of undrafted rookie bell-cow Phillip Lindsay.Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty ImagesWR:Phillip Dorsett, New England PatriotsWeek 1 Projection: 8.6 PTSWeek 1 Outcome: 19.6 PTS7 Receptions, 66 YDS, 1 TDWe knew someone would emerge from Tom Brady’s receiving core, but personally I believed it would be Chris Hogan or Corrdarelle Patterson, due to the suspension of Julian Edelman. Another top waiver priority this week, despite the signing of Corey Coleman, former first rounder Phillip Dorsett lit up the Texans secondary in the opener Baltimore Ravens Womens T-Shirt , and he could be in for another strong performance in Week 2.Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty ImagesQuincy Enunwa, New York JetsWeek 1 Projection: 9.2 PTSWeek 1 Outcome: 18.3 PTS6 Receptions, 63 YDS, 1 TDAvailable in 91.5 % of ESPN Leagues.After missing the entire 2017 season due to a neck injury, Quincy Enunwa was electric last night in his return against the Lions.

While the Rams secondary completely neutralizedDerek Carr and Amari Cooper, the veteran tight end put on a show in the first half. With the season ending injury to Delanie Walker and Greg Olsen’s broken foot, Cook is definitely worth a flyer.Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty ImagesJonnu Smith, Tennessee TitansSpeaking of Delanie Walker, his season has come to an end after a gruesome ankle fracture took him out in Week 1. His backup, second-year man Jonnu Smith, is worth a look in deeper leagues, and could fill in as a bye-week replacement depending on how Marcus Mariota decides to utilize him. In his rookie season last year Baltimore Ravens Hats , Smith established himself as an intriguing option. Smith finished the season with 18 receptions, 157 yards and 2 TD.Photo by Frederick Breedon/Getty ImagesD/STJetsWeek 1 Projection: 4.3 PTSWeek 1 Outcome: 25 PTS11 points allowed, 5 INT, 2 TDAfter rookie QB Sam Darnold’s first NFL throw was picked off for a touchdown, all hope was lost for the Jets. That was, until Todd Bowles’ defense began clicking on all cylinders. While I don’t believe they will dominate weekly, we will have to wait and see to find out if their showing was a fluke.Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images The Ravens offense is off to a humming start this season, specifically in the passing game. Joe Flacco is on pace for a career-high in both yards and touchdowns. So too is wide receiver John Brown, who has proven to be an elite deep threat. Baltimore currently ranks 10th in the NFL in total yards and 8th in passing yards. The Ravens are scoring 30.8 points per game, the 5th highest total In the league. While this success is great, it has helped mask a concerning issue. Michael Crabtree, the team’s presumed number one receiver, has failed to meet expectations thus far in the season. Crabtree is currently tied for the league-lead in dropped passes with five on the season.In the season opener against Buffalo, Crabtree had two drops in the first quarter alone. His slow start was largely forgotten Baltimore Ravens Womens Hoodie , however, after he caught an impressive touchdown pass and finished with three catches for 38 yards.Crabtree dropped another pass against the Bengals in Week 2. His performance against Denver was by far his best game of the season, as he caught seven passes for 61 yards. Instead of building upon it, however, he took a step backwards. During last week’s matchup against the Steelers, Crabtree finished with just three catches for 29 yards, including two more ugly drops. As has been the case with almost all of his drops this season, Crabtree was open and the ball hit him right in the hands. Given his physical attributes and reputation as a possession receiver, one would think this is merely a fluke start. Unfortunately, this trend is nothing new. Dropped passes have been an issue for Crabtree over the past several seasons. In 2016, Crabtree led the NFL in drops with 13. No receiver in the league has more drops than Crabtree over the past four seasons, which is frustrating given his ability to make contested catches and score touchdowns. The Ravens need the Michael Crabtree we saw in Week 1, who made this difficult grab in the back of the endzone look easy. Despite leading the team in targets this season, Crabtree has been overshadowed by John Brown’s stellar performance. Willie Snead IV Womens Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , another newcomer at the position, also has more receiving yards on the same number of receptions. Crabtree, who caught 25 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Raiders, has just one this season. At the quarter mark, he’s averaging just 46.0 yards per game and is on pace to drop 20 passes this season. When the Ravens signed Crabtree to a three-year, $21 million dollar contract this offseason, he was expected to slot in as Flacco’s go-to target. Many, including myself, believed Crabtree could have a similar impact in Baltimore to that of Anquan Boldin. Through four games, this has not been the case. His inability to consistently catch the football is becoming a glaring issue and could be costly late in the season. As long as the offense continues to succeed, Crabtree’s production won’t make many headlines. However, the Ravens need more out of their marquee offseason acquisition.
