That isn’t to mention the usual slate of injuries mucking things up, as the likes of Christian McCaffrey (knee), Kenny Golladay (hip) and Joe Mixon (foot) will be unavailable, while names like Kyler Murray (shoulder), Terry McLaurin (ankle) and Julio Jones (hamstring) are looking murky. And that’s just to name a few. 

This Thursday article is our second waiver wire piece of the week, intended to give a broad overview of players worth fantasy consideration. Every Monday, Kevin Payne’s first edition of the Waiver Wire series summarizes the top names.
