Earlier this week, I wrote about some waiver wire adds that would be beneficial for all fantasy teams. Some complained that these guys were owned in all their leagues, so I've decided to write another article that previewsseveral players who are almost definitely available on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues prior to the start of week 2. Here are the five best ones.

1. Austin Sefarian Jenkins.

The Buccaneers tight end was targeted only once in week 1, but pulled down that target for a 30 yard touchdown.

That talent makes him a prime candidate for a bigger role in an offense that is clearly focused on passing the ball. Jenkins will be a playable tight end in week 2 against a Cardinals defense that struggles to defend the position.

2. Jeremy Kerley.

Did anybody see this coming? Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton were supposed to be the top targets, but Kerley was the elite wide receiver in week 1, catching seven passes for 61 receiving yards. The 49ers don't throw the ball a lot, but Kerley will be worth a fantasyadd if he continues to be the top wide receiver on the 49ers offense.

3. Wil Lutz.

I've written about Lutz as a solid fantasy kicker in a ton of myarticlesalready. The rookie kicker plays for a high scoring Saints offense and is accurate enough to be a top fantasy kicker for the whole season. Lutz is definitely worth the add if your fantasy team lacks a reliable kicker right now.

4. Chris Thompson.

The Redskins completely abandoned the run on Monday night after the Steelers opened up a big lead.

That opened the door for running back Chris Thompson, who managed to score a touchdown with his limited opportunities. Thompson's role as a pass catching back makes him relevant in deep fantasy leagues where running back talent can be extremely scarce.

5. Marcus Mariota.

Anybody who played Mariota in week 1 was extremely disappointed with his performance against a tough Vikings defense that completely shut him down.

But those people who drop Mariota after his poor week 1 performance are making a huge mistake. Mariota has an excellent matchup in week 2 against the Detroit Lions and should be able to score around twenty fantasy points with a Titans offense that will be far more productive at home.
