The 2017 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. 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 Tight Ends for Week 2.
Charles Clay, TE, Buffalo Bills

Week 1 reminded us just how volatile the tight end position can be. Coming in with a top-5 finish this week, Charles Clay could be worth a waiver wire pickup if you are someone who waited to draft at the tight end position. On an offense full of new faces, Clay is one of the last of the Mohicans in Buffalo. But a familiar face for quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, nonetheless.
Turning 9 targets into 4 receptions, 53 yards and one touchdown in Week 1, Clay showed why chemistry with your quarterback is so important. If this week is a sign of things to come for the season and Clay is due a bump in targets, he could possibly finish as a top-12 option. Now with a rookie receiver in Zay Jones and injury prone Jordan Matthews as the main options, the Bills may look to involve their big tight end in more creative ways.
