Top 10 waiver wire pickups for Week 2

Stephen Hill (NYJ): Hill led the Jets in catches, receiving yards, and touchdowns, while being second in targets behind Santonio Holmes. Previously said to be the biggest disappoint of Jets' camp, Hill proved he has the ability to make plays in the NFL, and Mark Sanchez will only put more trust in him as the season goes on.

Tight Ends

Coby Fleener (IND): Andrew Luck's favorite target from Stanford followed him to the Colts, and Luck still loves throwing his way, targeting Fleener 10 times for second on the team. He's not as high in the rankings as the next two tight ends because he didn't catch a touchdown, but he had more targets, catches, and yards than them, so I believe he'll be better over the course of the season.

Dennis Pitta (BAL): Though Fleener did have more targets, catches, and yards, Pitta wasn't far behind. Pitta was targeted nine times, hauling in five of those passes for 73 yards. He got up impressively against shutdown corner Leon Hall for his touchdown catch, and Joe Flacco seems to have a lot of trust in him.

Martellus Bennett (NYG): The Giants have been getting good numbers out of below average tight ends for years, and they finally have a guy who can make the most of his opportunities. The self-proclaimed Black Unicorn was a hidden talent behind Jason Witten for years in Dallas, and the Giants should find him very useful as a security blanket and red zone option.
