2021 Fantasy Football Week 2 IDP Waiver Wire

Well, Week 1 has come and gone and it's time for my 2021 Fantasy Football Week 2 IDP Waiver Wire! I'm glad to be back in the saddle and back on the grind for another Fantasy Football Season!

Today I've got some players for you that are must grabs, as well as some that might just be worth watching for now.

Keep in mind, Week 1 didn't go well for A LOT of people. So make sure you hang on to those studs and don't make any early unnecessary cuts.

The only reason to make cuts at this point is if people literally aren't playing.

Also, each league is very different. Check out your waivers regardless, there may be guys that are absolute studs that shouldn't have been there in the first place. It never hurts to check!

With all that said, let's dive into the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 2 IDP Waiver Wire

Must Grabs

Chandler Jones, DL, Arizona Cardinals

Now, this was a game to marvel at. 6 solo tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles headlined the defensive stat lines for Sunday's games.

He's one of the more rostered players on this list, but you have to take a peek at those wires to see if he's around. This Arizona defense looks legit and he's a big part of it.

Maxx Crosby, DL, Las Vegas Raiders

After a disappointing sophomore season, Crosby decided to bounce back in a big way to start 2021. While racking up 4 solo tackles, 2 assists, 2 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks Crosby looked like a new player out there.

It was mentioned on Monday Night Football that he's recently made public his lifelong battle with alcoholism. Very similar to his teammate Darren Waller, this could be an indicator of why he's bounced back in such a big way.

Kudos to you dude, awesome story. I'm rooting for this guy.

Jordyn Brooks, LB, Seattle Seahawks

Jordyn Brooks is a little-known secret to some, but if you checked out my 2021 IDP Breakouts article this is no surprise to you.

Brooks didn't take long to step up in his expanded role with K.J. Wright leaving town, and put up 11 Tackles this past weekend.

You'd like to see some more of those auxiliary stats to boost his value, but those things can take time. He's getting the usage and producing. What more could you want?

Haason Reddick, DL/LB, Carolina Panthers

It might just be the Week 1 blow-up or it might be the new team glow-up. Either way, Reddick put the league on notice on Sunday, turning in 3 solo tackles, 1 assist, 1.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.

While it's not a Chandler Jones type stat line, it's definitely more sustainable. Reuniting with his college coach seems to have done him some good.

Time will tell if he's able to maintain this level of play.

Logan Ryan, DB/FS, New York Giants

Ryan is just tuning in to remind you he's still one of the best DBs to roster. I was shocked to see his roster percentage so low on sleeper.

Just means you can take all the advantage. Ryan had 8 solo tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 2 assists, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery in Week 1.

Grab if ya need 'em

Justin Hollins, LB, Los Angeles Rams

Now, don't be fooled by the linebacker tag. He plays more of an outside linebacker/edge role. He had himself a game racking up 6 solo tackles, 2 assists, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 forced fumble.

The coolest thing for me was it really seemed that his teammates were JACKED that he was playing so well.

It seemed as though they all knew how much work he had put in to get where he is today. And they see his hard work paying off on the field.

Nick Vigil, LB, Minnesota Vikings

Vigil seems to find himself in the same role that Eric Wilson held last season. Racking up 8 solo tackles, 2 assists, 2 tackles for loss, and a sack in Week 1.

I like him for now, but keep an eye on rookie Chazz Surratt. It was a battle for those two in camp. Vigil has been a career journeyman, they drafted Surratt to be a member of this team from the jump.

Some to watch

Jordan Fuller, S and Kenny Young, LB, Los Angeles Rams

Seems like the time of Troy Reeder being the guy is over. Kenny Young got pretty significant work and Fuller looks to be the DB to roster for now.

No huge impact plays for either. But some guys for y'all to watch.

That's it for my Week 2 Waiver Wire article! I hope y'all enjoyed it! Stay tuned for my weekly IDP Rankings! Check me out on YouTube for my Weekly Recap, Waiver Wire, Rankings, and Starts-Sits during the season! Have a great Week 2!
