Fantasy Football Waiver Thread, Week 2 Picks: Top Players To Add Include Jaylen Warren, Jarvis Landry

Developing a fantasy football roster that you can hope to take you deep into the playoffs is a season-long process and working on the fantasy football waiver wire is an essential part of building a deep roster. Bears running back David Montgomery drove for 3,732 scrimmage yards and 24 touchdowns in his first season and entered the year as the No. 1 presumptive running back in Chicago. But as he dominated the Week 1 workload over Khalil Herbert 20-10, Herbert looked like the more efficient fullback and was preferred late in a win over the 49ers.

So does that mean you should rush to claim Herbert on fantasy football waivers and ditch Montgomery, or should you take a wait-and-see approach with the Chicago backfield? Knowing exactly when to pounce on a potential waiver target and how much a fantasy football free agent is worth is key and a little help can ensure you have a winning fantasy football strategy. Before figuring out who to target on the Week 2 fantasy football waiver thread, be sure to see what SportsLine fantasy football analyst Jacob Gibbs has to say.

Gibbs uses a data-driven approach that has helped him consistently deliver accurate rankings at every position. It’s proven to be one of the most accurate Fantasy leaderboards in the country in recent years – boasting the eighth most accurate results over the past three seasons, according to Fantasy Pros.

Now, he’s revealed his top waiver wire picks among widely available fantasy football free agents entering Week 2. You can see his top NFL fantasy waiver wire picks and full analysis on SportsLine.

Top Fantasy Football Waiver Lead Picks for Week 2

Player Gibbs advises fantasy players to target the waiver thread in Week 2: Steelers running back Jaylen Warren, who is only registered in 10% of CBS Sports Fantasy leagues. Najee Harris injured his foot in a season-opening win over the Bengals and says he expects to play against the Patriots after X-rays came back negative. However, you can expect Pittsburgh to be relatively cautious with arguably their most important offensive play.

Harris led the NFL with 381 touches during his rookie season and the suddenly confident Steelers will definitely want to make sure he’s healthy long term. So if Harris is absent or even restricted, Warren becomes the plot back for Pittsburgh. The Oklahoma State product played 23 offensive snaps in Week 1 and he could be in line for double-digit touches against New England even if Harris is able to play.

Gibbs also highly recommends Saints wide receiver Jarvis Landry. He’s currently signed up in 44% of the CBS Sports leagues, and Gibbs is comfortable using up to 20% of your free agent budget for him. Landry was a surprise star in Week 1, catching seven of nine targets for 114 yards. Four of his holds moved the chains and he had two over 30 yards.

It’s a hugely encouraging start for the veteran, who seemed to be on the same page as Jameis Winston throughout the win over Atlanta. Week 2, however, brings a tough game against the Buccaneers. So while he may not be an instant Fantasy starter, Landry looks like a receiver you’ll at least want to have on your bench to see if he can continue production.

How to Set Your Week 2 Waiver Claims

Gibbs is also all-in on a surprising wide receiver that brings a huge upside. This player is widely available and could be a huge boost to your fantasy football lineup. You can only see who it is on SportsLine.
