Here at LBS we try to give you some fantasy football advice whenever we can. With all the breakout games some receivers and tight ends had on Sunday during Week 2, we figured we’d get you our advice as soon as possible so you can begin working the waiver wire accordingly.

Below are some of the top-performing wide receivers and tight ends from Week 2 who might be available in your league, and our analysis of them.

Danny Amendola, WR, Rams: He was the type of PPR monster many envisioned he would be last year. Amendola caught 15 of the 16 balls thrown his way for 160 yards and a touchdown in the Rams’ win over the Redskins. He also led the team with 5 catches for 70 yards on 9 targets in Week 1. Already with his first career 100-yard game, expect him to set many more career records this season.

Donnie Avery, WR, Colts: Had a breakout game on Sunday for the Colts going for 9 catches and 111 yards. Those were the best stats he’s posted since his rookie year with the Rams in a 2008. A former second-round pick, Avery had a promising rookie season after running an impressive sub-4.30 40 at the combine. It’s been over two years since a torn ACL kept him out for the 2010 season, and he’s now showing the promise that made him a highly-drafted player. He could be a good replacement for owners who drafted Austin Collie and want those stats.

Martellus Bennett, TE, Giants: Scored for the second straight week, and he had 5 catches for 72 yards in the Giants’ comeback win. Marty B. is seeing plenty of passes in the Giants’ offense, but he had trouble with drops on Sunday, which is something that plagued him throughout his career with the Cowboys. He still could easily post numbers similar to what Kevin Boss did when he was with the Giants, so if you need a tight end, he’s not a bad option.

Brian Hartline, WR, Dolphins: He led the Dolphins in receiving yards and targets for the second straight week. Hartline had 9 catches for 111 yards, both of which were career highs. He had 3 catches for 50 yards on 8 targets in last week’s loss to the Texans. Hartline probably won’t find the end zone much in that passing offense, but he should be good for at least 50 receiving yards a week on average, which isn’t bad if you need some depth.

Dante Rosario, TE, Chargers: Caught all 4 balls that came his way for 48 yards and 3 touchdowns. Congratulations if you had him in your starting lineup. If you have Antonio Gates, you should probably pick up Rosario as he seems to be a good backup option for when Gates is hurt. For anyone else, you probably don’t want to waste a roster spot on a backup.
