Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season is in the books and the injuries are already starting to pile up.
In San Francisco, quarterback Trey Lance suffered an ankle injury that will rule him out for the rest of the season. That leaves Jimmy Garoppolo as the new QB for the 49ers and while he’s not a fantasy football star, Jimmy G is a serviceable fill-in at QB, especially if you just lost Lance.
In Arizona, running back James Conner suffered an ankle injury that left Darrel Williams and Eno Benjamin as the Cardinals’ top remaining running backs on Sunday. Conner’s injury is not believed to be serious, but it’s still worth taking a look at Benjamin and Williams in case Arizona’s starting running back has to miss any games.
Garoppolo, Williams and Benjamin are among the players that headline this week’s waiver wire list that includes targets at quarterback, tight end, wide receiver and running back.
Let’s get to the list!
