Week 2 was a horrible week for quarterbacks and their fantasy owners. Drew Brees is out 6-8 weeks with a hand injury, Ben Roethlisberger is lost for the season, Sam Darnold will miss multiple weeks with mono, and now Cam Newton is mysteriously out of practice. Here is a quarterback heavy edition of our waiver wire to help you through this week and beyond.
Mason Rudolph – With Big Ben out the Steelers will have the promising rookie Rudolph fill in. He looked great in preseason and was very accurate against Seattle’s defense throwing 12-for-19 for 112 yards and 2 TD’s. He has tremendous upside in a solid Steeler defense.
Daniel Jones – Good bye Eli Manning, hello Daniel Jones. Finally Inaccurate Eli is benched and Giants fans have a reason to be optimistic. I wouldn’t play Jones this week with Sterling Shepard possibly out again with a concussion. I would pick him up and stash him. He has a couple weapons coming back soon.
Raheem Mosert – With Tevin Coleman out Mosert stepped in as the 1B. He caught 3 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown and ran 13 times for 83 yards.
Sterling Shepard / Golden Tate – See my note above about Daniel Jones. Shepard may still be out with his concussion and Tate is suspended until week 5 but now is the time to grab these guys. Be one step ahead of the rest of your league and roster these guys now.
Will Dissly – He was one my guys to get before week 1 started, after his week 2 performance it might be now or never if you want him. Dissly is a big red zone target for Russell Wilson and will continue to make big plays.
