The 2019 NFL season is 1 week old and there is still enough time to start picking up people from your fantasy football waiver wire. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire wide receivers for Week 2.
John Brown, WR, Buffalo Bills
Brown was seen as a nice fit for Josh Allen’s downfield arm when he signed with the Bills, and on Sunday against the New York Jets he delivered with seven receptions (on 10 targets, via Allen’s 37 pass attempts) for 123 yards and a touchdown.
In Week 2 and Week 3, matching closely with Allen, Brown gets good matchups against the New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals followed by Week 4 against the New England Patriots that could bring a pass-heavy game script.
Brown seems sure to be Allen’s No. 1 target, which stands to make him a weekly fantasy starter in the WR2/WR3 range. He’s also available in a big chunk of leagues right now, and an Allen-Brown stack is on the DFS radar in Week 2 and Week 3.
