Fantasy Football Week 2 Waiver Wire: Jared Cook Explodes as Other Tight Ends Get Hurt, Struggle

WIDE RECEIVERS

Geronimo Allison (39%) was a big part of the passing game for Green Bay, getting 8 targets in their comeback and scoring a fantastic touchdown. He’s definitely worth an upside roster spot at this point.

Kenny Golladay (57%) had a big opening day last year as a rookie but then disappeared. I have a feeling this time around will be different. He was targeted 12 times (more than Marvin Jones) as Detroit played from behind, and the tight end position was a non-factor with Eric Ebron gone. Expect Golladay to be a usable flex wide receiver going forward.

Quincy Enunwa (32%) was easily Sam Darnold’s favorite target in Week 1, and in a game where the Jets only threw 21 passes, Enunwa was targeted on 10 of them. This is a team without a productive receiving tight end and Enunwa could serve as Sam Darnold’s security blanket all year. Add him.

Chris Godwin (31%) didn’t have the big day statistically that DeSean Jackson did, but he was still on the field a lot. If Jackson is out with a concussion, Godwin is a major sleeper play this week.

We don’t know how long Doug Baldwin is out, and Brandon Marshall (10%) ended up leading the Seahawks in targets in Week 1. On a team short on proven weapons he is going to get an opportunity to show he still has something left. He’s a WR3 option in Week 2 against one of his former teams in Chicago.

Ryan Grant (9%) had 8 catches in his first game with Andrew Luck as the Colts passed it 53 times. He’ll be a flex PPR option.

TIGHT ENDS

If you don’t want to spend on Jared Cook but need a tight end, Jonnu Smith (0%) is a good deep sleeper pick. Titans tight ends were targeted on 32% of the passes in Week 1 when you add up Delanie Walker and his replacements. Smith was a 3rd round pick a year ago playing behind Walker, and if he gets just half the targets of Walker he’s still usable. The upside is there to be better. Besides Corey Davis, Smith may be option #2 in the passing game this year.

Ricky Seals-Jones (30%) is another tight end who gets enough targets to roster. He was second behind Fitzgerald and should be a borderline fantasy starter going forward.

Will Dissly (1%) will be the big name for his 100 yards and a touchdown against Denver. I’d rank him behind the others going forward but he has an opportunity to still be a fantasy factor in the Seahawks’ offense.
