The 2018 NFL season is just one week old and while many might think it’s premature to start picking up people from their fantasy football waiver wire, they are wrong. Unless you own a top-5 kicker, you are better off finding the best option each week from your fantasy football waiver wire. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the kicker that is going to help you win your matchup.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire kickers for Week 2.
Brandon McManus, K, Denver Broncos
McManus was a perfect 2-of-2 on field goals and nailed 3 extra points in Week 1. His 13 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues ranked second among kickers.
With the Broncos offense looking vastly improved from last year, McManus should see more kicking chances and this could lead to him being an option beyond just Week 1.
Speaking of Week 2, the Broncos take on an Oakland Raiders team that allowed 5 field goal attempts in the season opener and the most fantasy points to the position. The Broncos are at home and should have no trouble moving the football, making McManus the top fantasy football waiver wire kicker to stream this week.
