We're only one week into the 2023 season and there is already plenty of turmoil. It isn't time to hit the panic button quite yet. However, using FullTime's Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 2 to beef up your roster is always a good idea. Scoring was down across the league in Week 1. There were also plenty of injuries to account for. While blowing your entire FAAB budget after one week is inadvisable, it's always advisable to be proactive. Here are the top fantasy football waiver wire: Week 2 players to target—also, a recommended FAAB value to spend. FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget Kenneth Gainwell (RB) Philadelphia Eagles (25% FAAB) - Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch. D'Andre Swift only logged two touches. For now, this is Kenny Gainwell's backfield. We saw that play out in preseason and that's how the regular season opened. However, Gainwell is rostered in about half of the fantasy leagues. Where he's available, view Gainwell as the top waive priority this week as an RB2 in an elite offense. Puka Nacua (WR) Los Angeles Rams (20% FAAB) - Cooper who? Fifth-round rookie wideout Puka Nacua drew a lot of hype this summer. And that came to fruition in Week 1. Nacua caught 10-of-15 targets for 119 yards in the Rams' upset win. Nacua did a phenomenal Cooper Kupp impression, making plays all over the field. Subsequently, he warrants an aggressive FFAB bid as a weekly WR2/3 moving forward. Tutu Atwell (4% FAAB) matched Nacua with 119 receiving yards. However, the Rams are highly unlikely to repeat that kind of volume consistently. Justice Hill (RB) Baltimore Ravens (20% FAAB) - And just like that, J.K. Dobbins is done for the season. Hill was already projected to be more involved in Baltimore's new offense. But, those two goal-line touchdown runs were a nice surprise. I expect the Ravens to employ a committee with Hill and Gus Edwards moving forward. However, with his pass-catching ability, Hill should be the more highly coveted add...
