Who are the top waiver adds after one week of action on the college fantasy gridiron?

-by Braden Gall (@AthlonBraden)

Week One of the college football season is in the books and the waiver wire should be a downright fist-fight. Here are some names to target.


QB Must-Adds:

Kriss Proctor, Navy: 22 att., 176 yds, 3 TD, 4-7, 46 yds, TD, INT
Fantasy's top scoring quarterback in Week 1 has another brilliant match-up in week two against Western Kentucky, but don't expect 40 point weeks every time out. Navy has a tough schedule and will be kept in check. Proctor will need to learn to throw the ball with more efficiency against teams like South Carolina if he expects to put together a Dobbsian season.

Casey Pachall, TCU: 25-39, 251 yds, 4 TD, 9 att., 23 yds, TD
After dealing with a small shoulder injury in camp, Pachall's first career start turned into a fantastic fantasy week in the boxscore despite the outcome on the field. The schedule is very favorable to TCU the rest of the way, so be sure to snag him right away.

Tevin Washington, Georgia Tech: 8-13, 271 yds, 3 TD, 6 att., 34 yards
Certainly Washington will not average over 20 yards per completion for the season, but he is starting at one of the best option QB positions in the nation. Expect his passing numbers to drop but his carries and yards rushing to increase after the week one blowout of Western Carolina.

Ryan Lindley, San Diego State: 15-27, 203 yds, 4 TD
Lindley with Brady Hoke was a must-own. A Hoke-less Lindley didn't even get drafted, but may have learned a thing or two. There are some tough tests, but Washington State, Army, UNLV, Fresno, Wyoming, New Mexico and Colorado State are still left on the schedule.

Other Names to Watch:

Zach Maynard, Cal: 16-35, 277 yds, 2 TD, INT, 5 att., 53 yds
A clear connection with Marvin Jones and cousin Keenan Allen in debut at Cal.

Brett Smith, Wyoming: 27-41, 294 yds, 3 TD, INT, 13 att., 44 yds, TD
The Cowboys defense looks like it will keep Smith chucking it around in most games.

Bryn Renner, North Carolina: 22-23, 277 yds, 2 TD, INT, 2 att., 2 yds, TD
Yes, it was James Madison, but 22-23 against air is tough to ignore.

Must-Add Handcuffs:

Kain Colter, Northwestern: 17-24, 197 yds, 0 TD, INT, 23 att., 71 yds, TD
If you drafted Dan Persa, he is a must-add with Eastern Illinois and Army up next.

Tommy Rees, Notre Dame: 24-34, 296 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT
If you drafted Dayne Crist, he is a must-add. Generated loads of offense.

Richard Brehaut, UCLA: 17-26, 264 yds, 2 TD, 13 att., 87 yds, TD
Kevin Prince is questionable, and Brehaut's athleticism plays well against San Jose State.

Running Back Must-Adds:

Malcolm Agnew, Oregon State (33 att., 233 yds, 3 TD)
Does anyone remember the last time Mike Riley started a 5-foot-7 true freshman running back? Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 1,253 yards and 11 touchdowns. There are a lot of names in the backfield and not every defense will be Sacramento State, but Agnew was the name coming out of camp and he got 33 of the 43 total team carries. He has a tough one this week in Madison, but add him totally guilt free.

Branden Oliver, Buffalo: 35 att., 114 yards, TD, 4 rec., 13 yards
Anytime a player gets 39 touches in a game, especially running back in what was a 19-point loss, I don't think twice. The Bulls running back position has had plenty of fantasy viability in recent years and it appears that Oliver is the next name.

Chris Rainey, Florida: 11 att., 79 yds, TD, 6 rec., 67 yards, TD
If you read my Start or Sit from last week, I called for 12-18 touches for Rainey and that he would be startable in almost any fantasy line-up. He got 17 (18 if you count the blocked punt return) and scored three different ways. The key with Rainey is his dual eligbility as he carries both WR and RB status in most leagues.

Terrance Ganaway, Baylor: 24 att., 120 yards, TD
One rushing attempt was given to another running back for the Bears' big win against TCU on Friday night. Ganaway is clearly the guy for what could be one of the most explosive offenses in the nation. Baylor is on bye this week, but Stephen F. Austin, Rice, Iowa State and Kansas State await.

Time-Shares:

Lyle McCombs, UConn: 24 att., 141 yds, 4 TD, 2 rec., 17 yds
Starter D.J. Shoemate was a late scratch with an ankle. Keep an eye on this time share.

Dominique Whaley, Oklahoma: 18 att., 131 yds, 4 TD, 2 rec., 12 yds
Good news: He scored the first three Sooner TDs. Bad news: Brennan Clay, Roy Finch are in the mix.

Andre Williams, Boston College: 22 att., 114 yards, 2 TD, 2 rec., 11 yds
Montel Harris is scheduled to return at some point. Keep an eye on this one.

Anthon Samuel, Bowling Green: 22 att., 141 yds, TD, 1 rec., 6 yds
Jordan Hopgood also got 14 carries, but Samuel could be the guy for the Claw-ffense.

Kevin Parks, Virginia: 16 att., 114 yds, 3 TD, 2 rec., 13 yds
Perry Jones is still the starter, but the prep record holder will get time against IU this week.

Javonti Greene, Eastern Michigan: 14 att., 120 yards, TD
Dominique Sherrer is in the mix as well, but 77 of his 120 yards came on his TD run.

Jeff Demps, Florida: 12 att., 105 yards, 2 TD, 3 rec., 21 yds
Charlie Weis will give both him and Rainey touches, so there is value in good match-ups.

Be Wary Watchlist-ers:

Michael Ford, LSU: 14 att., 96 yards, 2 TD, 1 rec., 4 yds
Spencer Ware had 26 carries to Ford's 14 and topped him in yards as well.

Fitzgerald Toussaint, Michigan: 11 att., 80 yds, 2 TD
Michael Shaw is a big part of the mix, but Toussaint has the skillset Hoke wants.

Orwin Smith, Georgia Tech: 4 att., 84 yds, 2 TD, 2 rec., 43 yds
Yards per touch puts him on watch list, but no further: 6 total touches for 127 yards.

Michael Hayes, Bryce Beall, Charles Sims, Houston
Hayes: 13 touches, 84 yards, 2 TD. Beall: 12 touches, 88 yards, TD, Sims: 6 touches, 22 yards

Fozzy Whitakker, Texas: 9 att., 33 yds, TD, 4 rec., 55 yds, TD
Malcolm Brown didn't reach the endzone but got the bulk of the carries (16 for 86 yds)

Tier 1 Wide Receiver Must-Adds:

Darrin Moore, Texas Tech: 12 rec., 221 yds, TD
A.J. Jenkins, Illinois: 11 rec., 148 yds, TD
Tracy Moore, Oklahoma State: 7 rec., 112 yds, TD
Justin Hardy, East Carolina: 11 rec., 91 yds, TD
Chris Givens, Wake Forest: 7 rec., 170 yds, 2 TD

Tier 2 Wide Receiver Adds:

Dwight Jones, North Carolina: 9 rec., 116 yds, 2 TD
Robert Herron, Wyoming: 7 rec., 104 yds, 2 TD
Bernard Reedy, Toledo: 5 rec., 113 yds, 2 TD
Josh Boyce, TCU: 9 rec., 96 yds, TD
Terrence Williams, Baylor: 6 rec., 126 yds, 2 TD
Eugene Cooper, Bowling Green: 4 rec., 110 yds, 2 TD, 1 att., 9 yds

Tier 3 Wide Receiver Adds:

Alex Neutz, Buffalo: 10 rec., 108 yds
Kevin Dorsey, Maryland: 8 rec., 124 yds
Marquis Maze, Alabama: 8 rec., 118 yds, TD
Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech: 4 rec., 181 yds, 2 TD
Jarius Wright, Arkansas: 6 rec., 108 yds, 2 TD
Marvin Jones, Cal: 5 rec., 118 yds, 2 TD
Keenan Allen, Cal: 8 rec., 118 yds

Jake Stoneburner, Ohio State: 4 rec., 50 yds, 3 TD
Jospeh Fauria, UCLA: 6 rec., 110 yds, TD
Dwayne Allen, Clemson: 1 rec., 54 yds, TD
Kyler Efaw, Boise State: 6 rec., 53 yds, TD
Logan Brock, TCU: 4 rec., 41 yds, TD
Ryan Griffin, UConn: 3 rec., 97 yds, TD
