Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, FST brings you our Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups, which breaks down players available in many fantasy football leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Football Forum.

Add in all Leagues

Danny Amendola STL | WR

Wow, we all knew that Amendola was talented, but I don’t think anyone saw this coming. He racked up 15 catches which is good enough to add him to the must add in all leagues in my mind. The Rams don’t have a ton of weapons on offense, so as long as he is healthy they will rely heavily on Amendola. (about 50% owned)

Mark Ingram NO | RB

Ingram isn’t going to be a top 15 running back this year, but he still does have an upside. He is going to get enough touches most weeks to be able to rush for 50+ yards, and he should get a decent amount of TDs as well. The hate for Ingram has gone too far, he is a great guy to stash on your bench to use during bye weeks, or if you get into a bind with your running backs. (about 60% owned)

Andre Brown NYG | RB

As we await the results of the tests done on Bradshaw’s neck, fantasy owners need to pick up Brown in case the news is bad. Brown is an unproven player out of NC State, but he has impressed the Giants coaching staff enough to surpass Wilson on the depth chart. The Giants play the Panthers week 3, so Brown wouldn’t be a bad pickup and play if Bradshaw is forced to miss any time. (about 10% owned)

Rashard Mendenhall PIT | RB

The constant reports about Mendenhall being a full participant at practice are starting to get annoying, but the bottom line is that he is getting close to game shape. I think he is probably still a couple weeks away, but the reason I think he is a must add is because it looks like his job is pretty safe. Redman and Dwyer have looked ok, but neither of them have done much to make me think they will push Mendenhall for the starting gig. (about 65% owned)

Mikel LeShoure DET | RB

I am shocked that more teams aren’t willing to stash LeShoure on their bench to see how he does when he comes back from his suspension. Kevin Smith has looked pretty good, but I expect the Lions to try to limit his touches so they can try to keep him healthy. This is where LeShoure comes in, he should see a lot of work between the tackles, and handle the goal line duties. The Lions are a high powered offense, and I expect LeShoure will get a chance to be a pretty big part of it. (about 40% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Mike Goodson OAK | RB

I am not normally a big fan of handcuffing running backs in most cases, but if I had McFadden I would make an exception. Goodson is a great player, and if he gets a chance to be the featured guy he could be a top 15 running back. Even if McFadden manages to avoid the season ending type of injuries, it is still a safe bet to assume he will miss 3-4 games. The last thing you want as a McFadden owner is being forced to move him to your bench due to injury, and not have Goodson to put into your starting lineup as a replacement. (about 10% owned)

Jacquizz Rodgers ATL | RB

The Falcons struggled to get the ball moving on the ground against the Broncos, both running backs had a terrible yards per carry average. The Falcons are now a passing team, and this makes Rodgers more of a weapon on that stye of offense. Even though Rodgers hasn’t looked that great thus far, I still like his upside and I think he could have value later this year. Turner is an old man who has taken a beating during his career, and at some point he is going to breakdown. (about 55% owned)

Daryl Richardson STL | RB

I was high on Richardson going into week 2, and know you know why. I think this is the year Jackson crumbles, and it’s clear at this point that Richardson is the handcuff for Jackson. Richardson did have a big fumble at the end of the game that could have costs the Rams the game, but they were able to still win so hopefully it will not hurt his value. (about 5% owned)

Miami MIA | DEF

The Dolphins D has been only ok this year, but I like their chances against the Jets at home week 3. Sanchez looked more like the Sanchez of old week 2, and with Shonn Greene banged up the Jets could have a hard time moving the ball. I don’t love Miami as a pick up and play defense this week, but if you aren’t liking your matchup then I think you can do a lot worse. (about 5% owned)

Andrew Hawkins CIN | WR

Hawkins didn’t have nearly as many receptions as he did week 1, but he did manage to find the end zone for the Bengals. This speedster needs to have the attention of the fantasy world, because he could turn into something special. Other than A.J. Green the Bengals don’t have that many explosive offensive players, and I think they will do what it takes to get the ball in his hands. (about 5% owned)

Kyle Rudolph MIN | TE

We were high on Rudolph coming into the season, and he certainly hasn’t disappointed thus far. Other than Harvin the Vikes don’t have that many guys they can throw the ball too, so look for Rudolph to get a lot of targets. I think the second year player out of Notre Dame is in line for a breakout year, and I see no reason why he couldn’t be a top ten TE this year. (about 35% owned)

Dennis Pitta BAL | TE

I wasn’t a complete believer in Pitta after week 1, but after two straight solid games I really like him as a tight end pickup. He has been one of Flacco’s favorite targets so far this year, and with the Ravens offense looking good Pitta could have a great year. I might be getting a little ahead of myself, but with Bolding getting older and Smith being more of a big play guy, the Ravens are going to need to look at Pitta for the short to mid range routes. (about 30% owned)

Jared Cook TEN | TE

Cook isn’t off to the most amazing start in 2012, but I still believe in him as a fantasy tight end this year. He is going to get a lot of targets on the Titans offense, and even though he has no TDs he does already have seven catches on the year. The upside of Cook is huge, and I think he will have some monster games this year. (about 65% owned)

Brian Hartline MIA | WR

The Dolphins have limited weapons at wide receiver, but Hartline could emerge as not only there number one target, but also a decent fantasy option. He isn’t going to have a ton of value in standard leagues, but I think he is worth a look in deeper PPR leagues. Don’t look for him to find the end zone very often, but he has already hauled in 12 catches this year. (about 5% owned)

Pierre Thomas NO | RB

The Saints running game is very dependent on the situation of the game, but Thomas proved week 2 that he still has something left in the tank. I don’t love Thomas as an add, but if you need some running back depth you could do a lot worse. I think Thomas will have some more big games this year, and if you have to start him in a pinch he could certainly be a serviceable option. (about 50% owned)

Erin Henderson MIN | LB

Henderson has been a busy man for the Vikings on defense. He has a sack in each of the first two games, and 13 solo and 9 assisted tackles. The third year player out of Maryland looks like he might be on the verge of a breakout year, and I think he is worth a look in deeper IDP leagues. (about 5% owned)

Add to Watch List

Kendall Wright TEN | WR

With Nate Washington getting older and Kenny Britt dealing with injuries, I think Wright might be a guy to keep a very close eye on for the Titans. He had 5 catches week 1, and found the end zone in week 2. Wright was the Titans first round pick in 2012, and he might get a chance to start if there is an injury to Washington or Britt.
