Locked On Fantasy Football host Vinnie Iyer gave several players you should be targeting on your league’s waiver wire this week.

Derek Carr, QB, Las Vegas Raiders

Week 2 points: 24.18
Ownership %: 21.8%

Iyer: “Carr just lit up a tough Steelers defense following his strong performance in Week 1 against the Ravens. And, the team isn't doing much in the run game without Josh Jacobs. He's a top QB pickup in every league." 

Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills 

Week 2 points: 15.4
Ownership %: 53.4%

J.D. McKissic, RB, Washington Football Team

Week 2 points: 20.30
Ownership %: 35.5%

Iyer: “Moss and Mckissic stepped into more active complimentary roles in Week 2 and should be picked up in deep leagues."

Alexander Mattison, RB, Minnesota Vikings

Week 1 points: 3.8
Ownership %: 30.8%

Iyer: “Dalvin Cook managers should make sure they have backup Alexander Mattison just in case the ankle issues persist."

Cordarrelle Patterson, RB, Atlanta Falcons

Week 1 points: 23.9
Ownership %: 11.5%

Iyer: "If you're looking for a unique hybrid with multiple position eligibility in most leagues, Atlanta's Cordarrelle Patterson should remain an integral part of their offense."

Rondale Moore, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Week 1 points: 24.4
Ownership %: 26.6%

Iyer: "Rondale Moore is a play-making dynamo made for the flex spot. He'll keep getting chances in an explosive offense.
