Two weeks are in the books and another handful of players have made names for themselves throughout fantasy circles. Much of the buzz on this week’s waiver wire will focus on a few of the names listed below.
Connor Wood, QB-Colorado
As long as Wood is throwing to a healthy Paul Richardson, he should be good for a few spot-starts this season.
Nate Sudfield, QB-Indiana
Tre Roberson took the first snaps of the season for the Hoosiers, but Sudfield has thrown eight touchdowns in two weeks and may be a better fit now that Tevin Coleman has helped establish a running game.
Brandon Connette, QB-Duke
Connette will assume the starting role with Anthony Boone sidelined several weeks with a broken collarbone and the Blue Devils have a few favorable matchups on the horizon.
Trevone Boykin, QB-TCU
Casey Pachall is expected to miss at least two months with a broken left arm, which leaves Boykin to assume full-time quarterback duties.
Ryan Jackson, RB-Houston
After back-to-back 100-yard weeks and three touchdowns, Jackson seems poised to be the Cougars’ lead back.
Travis Greene, RB-Bowling Green
The Falcons offense is leaning on the sophomore running back and Greene has responded by rushing for 233 yards and a touchdown through two games.
Tyler Gaffney, RB-Stanford
We were not 100% sure Gaffney was going to be the lead back in Palo Alto this fall. After his 20-104-1 outing against San Jose State, make every effort to grab the senior tailback if he is still available in your league.
Odell Beckham, WR-LSU
Beckham has only caught ten passes so far this season, but he has made the most out of his receptions by surpassing the 100-yard mark each week and totaling four touchdowns.
Darius Joseph, WR-SMU
Chances are pretty good that Joseph was plucked off waivers after catching eleven passes for 103 yards in Week 1. For those of you who needed a two-week sample size, check the sophomore’s availability this week.
