The second week of football is over and thankfully this week we had very few injuries. Several players like LeSean McCoy and Jay Ajayi had some injury scares, but as of now seem to be fine enough to not miss any time. Maybe it's time for you to make a splash in the waivers, so let's look at some players worth taking a shot on this week.

Giovani Bernard RB Cincinnati Bengals (27% owned)

The only player to really benefit from an injury to a teammate this week, Giovani Bernard should get the start over the next two weeks (or more) while RB Joe Mixon misses time with a knee injury. Gio has had a rough start to the season, only carrying the ball 7 times for 25 yards and catching 5 passes for 26 yards. He was much more involved against Baltimore this past Thursday night, getting 7 targets and 6 rushing attempts. With Mixon out, Bernard should see a lot of work since he can both run and catch. Bernard can be added in all leagues if you need a running back for the next few weeks. Once Mixon returns, Gio can probably be dropped again.
