After a hectic week one, and another traditionally horrible fantasy week for myself, most fantasy football players will find themselves questioning a few picks. Perhaps they may even look to move on from some of them. If you are in this boat, luckily we have plenty of suggestions for who you should target on the waiver wire. Plus, we have the players that you should probably cut to make room for the newcomers. Here is Add / Drop Week 2.

Top 10 Adds

I’m sure flooding your headlines were many of the players in the additions of the week, and for most, it was well deserved. From shattering records to catching many by surprise, these players deserve to be on more than 50% of rosters after their week 1 performances.

WR Marquise Brown – Ravens
4 receptions, 147 yards, 2 touchdowns

Marquise Brown took off and proved why he was the first wide receiver off the board in the 2019 NFL Draft.

RB Malcolm Brown – Rams
11 rushes, 53 yards, 2 touchdowns

Malcolm Brown, despite Todd Gurley and Darrell Henderson clogging the headlines, punched it into the end zone twice for the Rams.

TE TJ Hockenson – Lions
6 receptions, 131 yards, 1 touchdown
WR Danny Amendola – Lions
7 receptions, 104 yards, 1 touchdown

TJ Hockenson and Danny Amendola both looked like strong options for Matthew Stafford.

WR Terry McLaurin – Washington
5 receptions, 125 yards, 1 touchdown
QB Case Keenum – Washington
30/44, 380 yards, 3 touchdowns

Even Case Keenum and Terry McLaurin posted impressive numbers against a good Philadelphia defense

Other Adds

WR AJ Brown – Titans
3 receptions, 100 yards

WR John Ross – Bengals
7 receptions, 158 yards, 2 touchdowns

Top 10 Drops

In most of these drop cases, I do not need to remind you of what they did previously in their careers. Instead, it is important to know why you should drop the following players.

WR Corey Davis – Titans
0 catches, 3 targets

Coming into the league, the fifth pick of the 2017 draft was expected to step into the WR1 role for the Tennessee Titans and instead looks like he will become one of the biggest busts in recent memory. For a third straight season, Corey Davis has not produced, or has looked like he will not produce anywhere near what is draft position indicates. If Davis is on your roster, I suggest taking your losses now and jumping on one of the afoermentioned additions.

WR Dante Pettis – 49ers
2 snaps, 1 reception, 7 yards

With Jimmy Garoppolo returning, it looked like Dante Pettis would emerge as the WR2 and be a great scorer in PPR formats. However, Pettis stepped on the field just twice in the season opener and considering the usage for Deebo Samuel in week 1, Pettis is a mere fourth option in San Francisco.

RB Tony Pollard – Cowboys
13 rushes, 24 yards

This one should not come as a shock for most. After Ezekiel Elliott signed an extension with the Cowboys, it was expected that Tony Pollard would lose nearly all of the value that he had entering the season and was just a week 1 rental, who ended up doing nothing substantial. Hopefully, you did not reach for Pollard in your draft.

RB Darrell Henderson – Rams
1 rush, 0 yards

Entering the season, I did not understand the buzz for Henderson. I thought the running back situation for the Rams was just a clever story that generated far too much hype at the end of last year. I never drafted Darrell Henderson this offseason and I am glad I did not. If you bought into Henderson early in your draft, perhaps giving him another week or two would be smart, but it appears as if Henderson will continue as the RB3 for the Rams going forward.

Latest From FPC on SportsCastr
RB Peyton Barber – Buccaneers
8 rushes, 33 yards

Another player I was low on this offseason was Peyton Barber. Once again, not to brag, I did not draft him in any leagues. On the flip side, I did draft Ronald Jones in multiple leagues and that is why Barber should begin leaving many lineups. Jones has cemented himself as the lead back in Tampa and Barber should not be nearly as utilized going forward. Also Dare Ogunbowale actually played more offensive snaps than Barber and took a lot the passing down duties.

WR Geronimo Allison – Packers
0 targets

One of these Green Bay receivers had to struggle right? Maybe you shouldn’t sell out on Geronimo Allison just yet, but I am not buying him any leagues in the near future.

QB Nick Foles – Jaguars
Ineligible to practice for 6 weeks

This one is a no brainer. It appears as if Nick Foles will be out until at least Week 8, maybe longer depending on his rehab. Foles is worth a spot on your roster when healthy, but should not be on your roster after getting injured and is not worth stashing on your IR in single QB leagues.

Monica Herndon / Times
QB Jameis Winston – Buccaneers
20/36, 194 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 interceptions

Yet again, another player who went higher in drafts than I believed they should have been going. Jameis Winston was horrific on Sunday, throwing 3 interceptions. He did not improve this offseason and I believe a change is coming in Tampa, whether that is riding him out until the 2020 draft or finding an immediate replacement.

WR Demaryius Thomas – Patriots
5th wide receiver on the depth chart

This one was easy to see even before Antonio Brown arrived in New England. Demaryius Thomas will be lucky if he even suits up this season, after already being inactive in week 1. Iamagine how difficult it will be once Brown starts suiting up for the Patriots.

RB Frank Gore – Bills
11 rushes, 20 yards

This one is much different than the rest. In my opinion, Frank Gore should not be on many rosters as it is, but being the veteran presence on a young Bills team is important and will continue to be why he receives many touches a game. However, it is now clear that he is the second option behind Devin Singletary and he should definitely not be rostered in many leagues.
