Fantasy Football Week 2 WR and TE rankings and Waiver Wire

Getty Cardinals WR Christian Kirk and Chargers WR Mike Williams.

Looking for an early jump on Week 2? We’ve got you covered with our wide receiver and tight end rankings, as well as the top fantasy football waiver wire pickups at the positions.

In the opening week, Deandre Hopkins reminded us why he’s arguably the best receiver in football. Corey Davis flaunted WR1-upside with the Jets. Antonio Brown pushes towards must-start territory. Christian Kirk finds the endzone twice and Mike Williams eats up targets.

Below we break down some of the most notable names to target on the waiver wire after Week 1, as well as our wide receiver and tight end rankings for Week 2.

Notable WR & TE Waiver Wire Targets for Week 2

All rostered percentages are based on Yahoo Fantasy Football leagues.

Christian Kirk, ARI
Rostered:  13%
Week 2 Matchup: vs. MIN

  • Is Kirk the No. 2? The No. 3? the No. 4? Does any of that really matter? Probably not, considering the way Kyler Murray is slinging it. Yes, there are a lot of mouths to feed in Arizona, and yes, A.J. Green did out-snap Kirk 60-to-37. However, Kirk is far more explosive than Green and a larger part of the offense than Rondale Moore is, at least at the moment. Murray attempted 32 passes in Week 1 and was seventh in the NFL a season ago in attempts (558). That type of volume alone makes Kirk fantasy relevant. Plus, the Vikings just allowed a total of 159 receiving yards and two touchdowns to Tee Higgins and J’Marr Chase.

Mike Williams, LAC
Rostered:  73%
Week 2 Matchup: vs. DAL

  • Speaking of airing it out, Justin Herbert attempted a whopping 47 attempts in the opener. Williams saw 12 of those targets, trailing Keenan Allen by just one for the team lead. Expect the Bolts to continue to put the ball in Herbert’s hands, which in return, means expect to see the ball in Williams’ hands. The Cowboys had 50 passes attempted on them in Week 1, allowing 379 yards and four touchdowns through the air.
