Waiver Wire—Week 2  
 
Shane Morris, QB-Central Michigan 
We weren’t sold on Morris after Week 1, but he showed us enough in Week 2 to convince us that he’ll be a fantast factor once Central Michigan begins MAC play.  Morris has two reliable receivers in Corey Willis and Mark Chapman, and should get TE Tyler Conklin back in a few weeks.  
 
Jake Hubenak, QB-Texas A&M 
I really wish we could have seen what Texas A&M coaches saw in Kellen Mond to give him that much playing time before turning to Hubenak after Nick Starkel’s injury.  Hubenak will jumpstart the offense in a Week 3 matchup against UL-Lafayette. 
 
Ty Isaac, RB-Michigan 
Isaac has been the Wolverines’ best back after two games this season, topping the 100-yard mark in both games.  As long as he proves productive, Isaac should continue to get the bulk of the carries, but he’ll have to start finding the end zone in order to become a regular fantasy starter. 
 
Darnell Woolfolk, RB-Army 
The Black Knights are off to a 2-0 start and Woolfolk has been a major offensive contributor, topping the 90-yard mark and scoring at least one TD in both games. 
 
Warren Ball, RB-Akron 
The Warren Ball we expected in 2016 looks healthy and ready to roll in 2017.  In the Zips Week 2 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Ball ran for 146 yards and 3 TDs on 20 carries.
 
Trey Sermon, RB-Oklahoma 
Saturday night, when the game mattered most, it was Sermon on the field making plays for the Sooners.  Will he stick?  We’re not sure, but it does not seem like Abdul Adams or Rodney Anderson have so far. 
 
Steven Mitchell, WR-USC 
Mitchell may already be on a fantasy roster in your league, but if not, he’s clearly one of QB Sam Darnold’s favorite targets, as he hauled in four passes for 94 yards and 2 TDs in a 42-24 win over Stanford.
 
Nick Easley, WR-Iowa 
Through two games, Easley has established himself as the Hawkeyes’ best receiver and has scored a TD in both games of 2017. 
 
Hakeem Butler, WR-Iowa State 
After two weeks of the 2017 season, Allen Lazard has not been the Cyclones’ most productive receiver.  That distinction belongs to Hakeem Butler, as the 6-foot-6 receiver has caught 12 passes for 203 yards and 3 TDs in two games.
 
Austin Conway, WR-Wyoming 
The Cowboys may have lost RB Brian Hill, but they still have QB Josh Allen, and it seems like the Wyoming offense will take to the air more than we anticipated.  After two games, Conway has hauled in 19 passes for 186 yards and a TD.  
 
Stanley Morgan, WR-Nebraska 
The Nebraska defense has had its troubles through two games, but that has done wonders for the offense’s fantasy potential, particularly WR Stanley Morgan, who has topped the 100-yard mark and scored at least 1 TD in each of the Cornhuskers first two games. 
 
Tyre Brady, WR-Marshall 
Brady may be one of those guys that fantasy owners drafted, but dumped after Week 1.  After catching 11 passes for 248 yards and a TD in a 37-20 loss at North Carolina State, Brady’s numbers alone will make him a hot waiver target. 
 
McClane Mannix, WR-Nevada 
Mannix proved that his two catches for 76 yards and a TD in Week 1 was not a fluke, hauling in another 6 passes for 139 yards in Week 2 against Toledo.  Mannix and Wyatt Demps have been the Wolf Pack’s top two receivers through two games.
