It is time for our first Waiver Adds feature of the season where we take a look at the hot adds for fantasy football Week 2.  Let's get to it.

Dontrelle Inman (WR):  Obviously the biggest loss of Week 1 was San Diego Chargers wideout Keenan Allen with a torn ACL and his loss is as big as it gets considering how many passes he catches.  Someone has to make up the slack of Philip Rivers throws and up should step backup Dontrelle Inman.  Inman has flashed before as a possible fantasy football option but now is his golden chance.  Antonio Gates, Travis Benjamin, and Danny Woodhead will all see more looks but Inman could be a sweet PPR add.

Carson Wentz (QB):  This is an add for two QB formats given how smooth Wentz looked in his debut when he tossed two touchdown passes and not interceptions.  He already seems to have command of the Philadelphia Eagles passing offense and he has a nice array of weapons in Nelson Agholor, Jordan Matthews, and Zach Ertz.  Again this is just for two QB formats but the upside is decent.

Matt Ryan (QB):  It is possible Ryan is sitting on your waiver wire as the narrative was that he was awful in 2015.  While he was light on scores, Ryan threw for a ton of yardage and from 2012-14 he was a slam dunk top ten fantasy football passer.  He was excellent in Week 1 and now has a wingman to Julio Jones in Mohamud Sanu.

James White (RB):  White served as a good outlet receiver for Jimmy Garoppolo Sunday night and he is playing the Dion Lewis role in the offense which was very PPR friendly last season.  While LeGarrette Blount will handle the majority of the running, White is the main pass catching back.

Will Fuller (WR):  Fuller looked like teammate DeAndre Hopkins in Week 1 as he caught five passes and a touchdown for the Houston Texans.  The ability is off-the-charts here and Fuller showed no signs of the dropsies that hurt him in college.  Big upside her and I would go Fuller over Inman and this next guy.

Tajae Sharpe (WR):  Yes another rookie wideout but Sharpe is already operating as the number 1 receiver for the Tennessee Titans.  Sharpe is not as dynamic as Will Fuller but he should catch more passes which bumps him up in PPR leagues.

New York Giants D:  Yes this unit was the worst in the NFL last season but the Giants spent $200 million to beef up this group over the winter and so far, so good.  The Giants defense kept Ezekiel Elliott in check and clogged up the run. The pass rush didn't reigster a sack but the Dallas offensive line is the best in the league so no shame there.  This is a unit on the upswing.

Tyrell Williams (WR):  I think Dontrelle Inman is the one to own but Williams did get five throws by Philip Rivers last week so he needs to be looked at as well.

DeVante Parker (WR):  The talent is there as Parker was a top pick for a reason but injuries have simply not allowed the kid to get onto the field.  The Miami Dolphins need a complement to Jarvis Landry and Parker seems primed to eventually be that guy.

Jeremy Kerley (WR):  When you have a noodle-armed QB like Blaine Gabbert, short passes are the thing and Kerley is a decent slot man who showed Monday night he can be a high-target weapon.
