Secondary: Javorius “Buck” Allen – 13% Ownership
Every single year Buck Allen ends up on waiver wire lists everywhere and this season is no different. It’s not really about his talent but the opportunity opened up when Kenneth Dixon went down once again with an injury. Allen is pretty boring from a skill set standpoint but he catches passes very well and already stole a touchdown from Alex Collins in Week 2.
Baltimore has remained inconsistent in their support of Alex Collins and it seems like he could lose his job at any moment. Allen is someone worth adding in deeper leagues for a potential flex option but in shallower leagues I’d only add him out of pure necessity or depth in case Collins goes down or can’t hold onto the football. He’s a very unpredictable option in a boring offense, but he’s worth an add if you need some help.

Secondary: Antonio Callaway – 5% Ownership
The Patriots sent shockwaves across the league this week when they traded a fifth round pick to Cleveland for Josh Gordon. What’s been lost in this whole thing is how it impacts the Browns offense going forward. Antonio Callaway was a first-round talent who tumbled down draft boards because of off-field issues.
The Browns clearly have faith in him to keep his head on straight and suit up every week and if that’s the case he has every opportunity in front of him to produce in a role that was originally carved out for Gordon.
He’s more of a speculative add to see what happens in wake of the trade but he caught a long touchdown in his first week and could be someone who trends up as the season goes along. Todd Haley has always been great at making the most of the talent he has in front of him, so it’s not crazy to think Callaway could be fantasy relevant sooner rather than later.
