We learned a lot from week 1 of the NFL season. Star receivers emerged, some running backs flourished, and others were just busts. Now that week 1 is over, it's time to look to the waiver wire for help thanks to several injuries, including a critical oneto Chargers receiver Keenan Allen.

1. Mohamed Sanu.

The former Bengals wide receiver had an excellent debut for the Falcons, scoring one touchdown and accumulating more receiving yards than star receiver Julio Jones. Sanu got plenty of deep targets in the game and should continue to be a serviceable fantasy play in future weeks. Snatch him up on the waiver wire if he's available before someone else takes advantage of the opportunity.

2. Will Fuller.

The Texans receiver actually received more targets than star receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and he did more with them. Fuller had 107 receiving yards and one touchdown against the Bears in week 1, proof that he already has some chemistry with quarterback Brock Osweiler. Fuller will be a must-add in all fantasy leagues if Osweiler continues to target him this much.

3. Terrance West.

After the Ravens had won their last game, I wrote that you don't want any part of the Ravens backfield. That could change if the Ravens recognize that West is far more talented than Forsett and start giving West a bigger workload. West got more carries than Forsett in the opener and could get a bigger workload in the future.

Fantasy players shouldn't add him right away, but they should pick him up and stash him for the future.

4. Ravens D/ST.

The Baltimore Ravens absolutely shut down the Bills offense in week 1 and allowed less than 200 total yards. Now they get to play against a Browns team that will be captained by 37-year-old quarterback Josh McCown, who will struggle without star receiver Josh Gordon in the fold.

The Ravens are the defense for fantasy players if they lack an elite one in week 2.

5. Jameis Winston.

The Buccaneers quarterback had a huge week against a tough Falcons defense, throwing for four touchdowns and eventually scoring 25 fantasy points against a defense that ranked seventh regarding points allowed to fantasy quarterbacks last year.

Winston will have another tough challenge against the Cardinals in week 2 but certainly looked like a capable quarterback in week 1.
