Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season is nearly over, with two games to go on Monday night.
And if you play fantasy football, you’re already planning ahead with waivers after a busy Sunday of games.
That’s what we’re here for, a roundup of some of the players you could be targeting ahead of Week 3.
Some of the names below might be taken already, but if not, there are a bunch of dudes who could change your fantasy fortunes this season. Let’s run through them, in no particular order, and we’ll update this after the the pair of games we’ll see on Monday Night Football.
RB Raheem Mostert, Miami Dolphins
Hmmm. The vet had 51 yards on 11 carries and 28 more on three catches.
Chase Edmonds, meanwhile, had just five carries and one catch on three targets.
So, yes, grabbing Mostert seems like a good idea, even if a timeshare is developing.

WR Jahan Dotson, Washington Commanders
We talked about him last week and we’ve got to do it again this week: Dotson scored again this week. He’s clearly a significant part of this offense, one with three productive receivers along with Curtis Samuel and Terry McLaurin.
RB Darrel Williams, Arizona Cardinals
If James Conner misses any time due to injury, it looks like the vet is the next man up. But the next guy on the list might be the one who gets more of the high-quality work …
RB Eno Benjamin, Arizona Cardinals
He’s oozed upside ever since joining the Cardinals as a seventh-round pick. Maybe this is the start of something big if Conner is injured.

WR Garrett Wilson, New York Jets
WOW. He got 14 (!) targets, caught eight of them, two of which were touchdowns.
What’s more: That’s 22 targets in two weeks. Yeah, that’s pretty major.
TE Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders
If you’re like me and you ended up with Cole Kmet at tight end, it may be time to cut him loose and grab the guy who has 82 yards through two weeks and who caught a score on Sunday.
TE Isaiah Likely, Baltimore Ravens
After four targets in Week 1 for no catches, he had four receptions for 43 yards. Maybe the sleeper in the preseason is waking up?
QB Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers
I know what you’re thinking: In a run-first offense, picking up a QB who also threw 12 picks last year isn’t the best idea.
But maybe having Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk will help. Maybe he’ll be better when George Kittle returns from injury. At the very least, he could be streamable certain weeks?
