  • Wil Lutz Makes Lone Field Goal

    New Orleans Saints kicker Wil Lutz connected on his only field-goal attempt and made three extra points in the Week 2 loss to the Raiders. Lutz didn't get to try for many field goals considering the Saints offense capitalized with touchdowns when they were in the red zone. As part of a high-octane offense, Lutz remains a weekly starter considering his large role and reliability.

  • Jared Cook Only Manages 13 Yards

    New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook only managed two receptions for 13 yards on five targets in the Week 2 loss to the Raiders. After coming off an 80-yard performance in Week 1, the tight end was certainly disappointing. Nevertheless, with Michael Thomas sidelined, he should still see a decent number of targets and can redeem himself in Week 3. Cook can be explosive, thus keeping him in the TE1 tier going forward.

  • Emmanuel Sanders Musters Only One Catch

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders only managed one reception for 18 yards on three targets in the Week 2 loss to the Raiders. It was certainly a disappointing performance for the temporary WR1 of the Saints as Drew Brees even eclipsed 300 passing yards. Sanders will look to get back on track in Week 3 against the Packers, but his value should be downgraded to a flex considering his Week 2 struggles.

  • Tre'Quan Smith Gets 86 Yards

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith came through in the Week 2 loss to Las Vegas, getting five receptions for 86 yards on seven targets. With Michael Thomas sidelined, it was only natural to see Smith see some more targets and he delivered with a great performance. He should see some targets as long as Thomas is out, keeping him in the flex tier for the foreseeable future.

  • Alvin Kamara Stuffs The Stat Sheet

    New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara had a tremendous performance in the Week 2 loss to the Raiders, getting 13 carries for 79 yards and two touchdowns along with leading the team with nine receptions for 95 yards on nine targets. The absence of Michael Thomas thrust Kamara into a huge role and he put on a great display in both the passing and rushing game. He remains a solid RB1 going forward.

  • Drew Brees Goes For 312 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees went 26-for-38 and put up 312 yards, one touchdown, and one pick in the loss to the Raiders on Monday. After a hot start, the Saints cooled down and the offense couldn't get going deeper into the game. It was obvious the absence of Michael Thomas was felt, but this was the type of performance that is now expected of Brees, which is generally not explosive in terms of touchdowns. He should remain a low-end QB1 or high QB2 going forward.

  • Solomon Thomas Suffers Torn ACL

    San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Solomon Thomas (knee) was confirmed to have suffered a torn ACL in the Week 2 win over the Jets. The season got off to a bad start for Thomas when the Niners declined the 25-year-old's fifth-year option, and things just got a lot worse. The Stanford product hasn't lived up to his draft stock as a third-round pick in 2017. The 49ers had the worst luck of any team in the injury department in a Week 2 full of devastating season-ending injuries. All-Pro pass-rusher Nick Bosa also tore his ACL, ending his 2020 campaign. Look for rookie Javon Kinlaw to pick up the slack up the middle, while the Niners will also need DJ Jones and Arik Armstead to step up.

  • Broncos Defense Keeps Team In The Game In Week 2

    The Denver Broncos Defense was respectable in the Week 2 loss against a powerful Steelers offense with two rookies in the secondary. Safety Justin Simmons had two passes defensed, including an interception of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Fellow safety Kareem Jackson also recovered a fumble that led to a fourth-quarter touchdown that cut Pittsburgh's lead to five. The defense had a total of six tackles for loss, with their lone sack coming courtesy of defensive tackle Mike Purcell. They did, however, allow two passing touchdowns and gave up over 100 yards on the ground to James Conner, the second straight week allowing a back to go for over 100 rushing yards. Against Tampa and Tom Brady with receiver Chris Godwin (concussion) back in the fold, Denver's D will be a risky streaming option.

  • Brandon McManus Makes Two Of Three Field Goals In Week 2

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus was 2-for-3 on his field-goal attempts and made his lone extra-point try in the 26-21 Week 2 loss to the Steelers. McManus connected from 49 yards and 28 yards out and missed his lone attempt from 58 yards out. Denver's offense has potential, but they are dealing with injuries to quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) and running back Phillip Lindsay (toe), while receiver Courtland Sutton (knee) will miss the rest of the season. McManus isn't much of a fantasy option at the kicking position until further notice, despite his big leg.

  • Tim Patrick Has Just Two Catches Against Steelers

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick secured just two of his five targets for 24 yards in the 26-21 Week 2 loss to the Steelers on the road. It was a slight step down for the 26-year-old, as he caught four of five targets for 29 yards in the season-opening loss to the Titans. There will be more opportunities for Patrick the rest of the year with Courtland Sutton (knee) suffering a torn ACL, but even so, Noah Fant and rookies Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler will likely be ahead of him in the pecking order. Also, quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) is out for two to six weeks.

  • K.J. Hamler Sees Seven Targets In NFL Debut

    Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver K.J. Hamler was targeted seven times and caught three passes for 48 yards in the Week 2 loss to the Steelers in his first NFL game after missing the season-opener with an injury. Despite the lackluster overall line, it's worth noting that Hamler was tied for the team lead in targets with fellow rookie Jerry Jeudy. The small yet speedy young receiver can break plays deep down the field, but it'll likely be few and far between this year. However, he could be worth a look in much deeper leagues as a flex option moving forward with Courtland Sutton (knee) done for the season.

  • Noah Fant Scores Second Touchdown Of Season

    Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant caught four of his five targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the 26-21 Week 2 loss to the Steelers. He now has nine catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns, just one short of his rookie-season total, through two games in 2020. Quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) will be out anywhere from two to six weeks, but the drop-off to Jeff Driskel may not affect Fant all that much. In fact, Driskel could lean heavily on Fant moving forward. As one of the top receivers in Denver's offense with Courtland Sutton (knee) out for the year, Fant has become a solid TE1.

  • Jerry Jeudy Catches Four Passes In Loss To Steelers

    Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Jerry Jeudy caught four of his seven targets for 62 yards in the Week 2 loss to the Steelers. Even though Jeudy has yet to score a touchdown in his first year in the NFL, he was tied for the team lead in catches and targets in this game. There's a lot to like about his route-running ability, which helps him gain plenty of separation, but he won't be as exciting as a WR4/flex for fantasy managers with quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) expected to miss anywhere from two to six weeks.

  • Royce Freeman Very Quiet Against Steelers

    Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman attempted just three rushes for 20 yards in the Week 2 loss to the Steelers with Phillip Lindsay (toe) inactive. Even with Lindsay on the sidelines for this one, Freeman just wasn't a part of the offense as Melvin Gordon III's backup. Lindsay could miss more time, but Freeman just won't see enough touches to be fantasy relevant unless Gordon also suffers an injury that causes him to miss time.

    Sep 21 · Source via Broncos Royce Freeman
  • Melvin Gordon III Salvages Fantasy Day With Receiving TD

    Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III carried the ball 19 times for 70 yards in the Week 2 loss to the Steelers with Phillip Lindsay (toe) inactive, but he salvaged his day for fantasy managers with two catches for 14 yards and his second touchdown of the season. The good news for Gordon is that he should continue to be a big part of this offense with Lindsay potentially out for another game and receiver Courtland Sutton (knee) out for the remainder of the year. He'll be facing a Buccaneers Defense in Week 3 that has allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to the running back position through the first two weeks. Consider Gordon a usage-based RB2 until Lindsay is back in the fold.

  • Allen Lazard Sees Five Targets In Week 2

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard had a quiet day in Week 2 against the Lions, though he was still sneakily involved in the offense. Lazard saw five targets, which was an improvement on the four looks he saw in Week 1. He hasn't put up amazing numbers yet, though he has been on the field far more often than fellow wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who has had better stats so far. Interestingly enough, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a higher passer rating when targeting Lazard than when he throws to Valdes-Scantling or star receiver Davante Adams. These are reasons to keep the 24-year-old stashed on fantasy benches. Lazard has a couple of fantasy-friendly matchups on the way against the Packers in Week 3 and the Falcons in Week 4.

  • Kerryon Johnson Finds The End Zone In Week 2

    Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson led the Detroit backfield in carries and scored a rushing touchdown in a 42-21 loss to the Packers in Week 2. It should be noted that Detroit had to abandon the run earlier than they would have liked in this one, considering how quickly Green Bay jumped out to a lead. So in reality, leading the backfield in touches sounds much more impressive than it actually was, as Johnson ended up with only eight touches. It wasn't a bad showing, but Johnson's role is just too unpredictable with D'Andre Swift and Adrian Peterson also manning the backfield. He's likely not worth rostering a this point, unless injuries force him into action.

  • Nick Bosa Out For Season With Torn ACL

    San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa (knee) has suffered a torn ACL and is out for the remainder of the season. The team was fearful that he would miss significant time and the MRI confirmed those fears. The 22-year-old was a big reason why the 49ers fielded arguably the league's best defense last season, as he registered nine sacks as a rookie and made the Pro Bowl. It's a crushing blow for a defense that was looking to prove that 2019 was no fluke. With multiple injuries on defense in addition to Bosa, the 49ers' unit is one that will have to be downgraded for fantasy purpose moving forward.

  • Henry Ruggs III Active Against Saints

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III (knee) is active and will take the field against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. Ruggs III was expected to play after upgrading to a limited session on Friday and taking the practice field again on Saturday, though it is always nice to get the official word. It's possible that the rookie isn't 100 percent for this one, but his speed and big-play ability will still have to be respected by the New Orleans defense. Look at him as a boom-or-bust WR4 for a contest that has the potential to be high-scoring.

  • Jeff Driskel Efficient In Relief Of Drew Lock

    Denver Broncos quarterback Jeff Driskel led an unlikely comeback against the Steelers in Week 2 that ultimately fell short after Drew Lock (shoulder) was injured. Driskel took six sacks and absorbed 17 hits from a ferocious Pittsburgh defense, but the Broncos were 15 yards away from a stunning upset on the road. With Lock out at least several weeks, Driskel will continue to lead Denver's offense, beginning in Week 3 against the Buccaneers. In the end, he completed 18 of 34 passes for 256 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the 26-21 loss, adding two rushes for five yards. Even though Driskel exceeded expectations in a tough situation, he'll be low-end QB2 streamer going forward in superflex leagues.

  • Seahawks Defense Loses Bruce Irvin With Torn ACL

    Seattle Seahawks outside linebacker Bruce Irvin (knee) tore his ACL in the Week 2 win over the Patriots on Sunday night and will miss the rest of the 2020 season, according to a source. It's a tough blow for the 32-year-old veteran, especially since the Seahawks Defense had allowed close to 1,000 total yards of offense combined to the Falcons and Patriots in the first two weeks. Rookie first-rounder Jordyn Brooks will need to step up in the middle of Seattle's defense for the rest of the season. Against a Cowboys team that made a miraculous comeback in Week 2 with over 40 points, you should be looking to avoid the Seahawks defense in fantasy.

  • Brandon Scherff Out 3-5 Weeks With Sprained MCL

    Washington Football Team Pro Bowl offensive guard Brandon Scherff (knee) suffered a sprained MCL in the Week 2 loss to the Cardinals that will keep him out for three to five weeks, according to a source. It's actually good news, however, as Washington initially feared that Scherff would miss the rest of the season. Given the franchise tag before the season, he'll hope to return and remain productive as he looks for a long-term contract extension after the season. Scherff's absence will make it tougher for Washington to run the ball, starting in Week 3 against the Browns on the road.

  • Ravens Defense Loses Tavon Young For The Year

    Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh confirmed that nickel cornerback Tavon Young (knee) will miss the rest of the 2020 season after suffering a torn ACL in the Week 2 win over the Texans. The 26-year-old had just two combined tackles in two games this year, but it's a blow to Baltimore's secondary moving forward. It could immediately become an issue heading into the Week 3 showdown against the Chiefs on Monday Night Football, making Tyreek Hill a better option to go off deep down the field. While the Ravens Defense surely won't have as much high-end fantasy upside this week against the defending Super Bowl champions, they're still in play as a starting unit.

  • Tevin Coleman Expected To Miss Multiple Weeks

    San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman (knee) is expected to miss "multiple weeks" after suffering a knee injury in the Week 2 win over the Jets, according to a source. The Niners are expected to be without both Coleman and Raheem Mostert (knee) for Week 3 against the Giants, which would leave Jerick McKinnon as the primary running back. Jeff Wilson Jr. will also have a role in this backfield, but McKinnon is the one you should be targeting on the waiver wire if you own Mostert or Coleman or one of the other handful of backs that suffered injuries in a crazy Week 2. Don't be surprised if Coleman is placed on Injured Reserve, which would make him droppable in shallow leagues if you don't have the room to hold onto him.

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the team is concerned about running back Tevin Coleman (knee), who suffered a knee injury in the Week 2 win over the Jets. Coleman is awaiting the results from an MRI exam. Even with Raheem Mostert (knee) missing the entire second half, Coleman carried the ball 14 times for just 12 yards while also catching two passes for 28 yards against New York. Mostert and Coleman could both be forced to miss time going forward, making Jerick McKinnon -- who outperformed Coleman on Sunday -- a must-add off the waiver wire heading into Week 3. Check back for updates on Coleman's status.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Has A Chance To Play In Week 3

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's (ankle) high ankle sprain isn't severe. Garoppolo will be week-to-week and has a chance of playing in Week 3 against the Giants. He was on his way to a big game against the Jets before the injury, throwing for 131 yards and two touchdowns, but this is some good news for a team that also lost running back Raheem Mostert (knee) and All-Pro pass-rusher Nick Bosa (knee) in the same game. However, the Jimmy G should be expected to hand the ball off plenty against New York this Sunday if he is cleared to make the start. Consider Garoppolo a shaky QB2 option in superflex leagues heading into Week 3 matchups. If he can't play, Nick Mullens will make the start.

  • Anthony Barr Suffers Torn Pectoral Muscle

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said that linebacker Anthony Barr (pectoral) suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the Week 2 loss to the Colts and will be placed on Injured Reserve. The first-round pick out of UCLA in 2014 didn't accumulate any stats on Sunday before suffering the injury, one that will keep him out for the rest of the 2020 season. The Vikings are already reeling at 0-2 to start the season with losses to the Packers and Colts, and their defense can't be trusted right now in fantasy leagues, especially after losing Barr in the middle of the field.

  • Saquon Barkley Out For Season With Torn ACL

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) will officially miss the rest of the 2020 season after an MRI exam confirmed a torn ACL in his right knee. With Barkley missing the rest of the year, the Giants are bringing in veteran free-agent running back Devonta Freeman for a workout. As of now, expect Wayne Gallman to see early down carries in this backfield, with Dion Lewis serving as the third-down back. This could be a season-ender for Barkley's fantasy managers as well, with the running back coming off the board second overall in a lot of leagues. Lewis will be worth a pickup in PPR leagues, but this backfield would become even more unpredictable if the team were to sign Freeman.

  • Christian McCaffrey Out 4-6 Weeks

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) suffered the dreaded high ankle sprain in the Week 2 loss to the Buccaneers and is expected to miss four to six weeks. With is expected timetable, the Panthers could decide to place him on Injured Reserve, from which he can return in three weeks. This is obviously a huge blow for fantasy managers, as McCaffrey was taken first overall in the vast majority of fantasy drafts. Mike Davis, McCaffrey's backup, will be a hot pickup off the waiver wire heading into Week 3. Expect Trenton Cannon to work as his direct backup for however long McCaffrey is sidelined.

  • Courtland Sutton Suffers Torn ACL, Out For Season

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (knee) tore his ACL in the Week 2 loss to the Steelers and will miss the rest of the 2020 season, according to a source. It's a brutal injury for Sutton and the Broncos just as he returned to action after missing the season-opening loss to the Titans with a shoulder injury. Denver also lost quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) for a few weeks, so it'll be Jeff Driskel under center moving forward throwing to rookies Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler, Tim Patrick and tight end Noah Fant, who has become the best fantasy asset on this team through two weeks. Sutton was in play as a strong WR2 this year after a breakout 2019 performance.

  • Brandon Scherff To Miss A Couple Weeks

    Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera said that offensive guard Brandon Scherff (knee) will miss a couple of weeks. The three-time Pro Bowl right guard is playing on the franchise tag this year for $15 million, and this injury doesn't help his chances of signing a long-term contract extension with the team after this season, but it's much better than a season-ending injury. The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best guards in the league, so losing him for any amount of time is bad news for the offensive line, the running game and quarterback Dwayne Haskins as they head into a Week 3 matchup with the Browns.

  • Parris Campbell Out Indefinitely With MCL, PCL Injury

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell (knee) suffered a sprained MCL and PCL in his knee in the Week 2 win over the Vikings that is expected to keep him out indefinitely, according to a source. With all the season-ending injuries that popped up in Week 2 across the league, you might say that Campbell dodged a bullet here after being carted off the field. Campbell has plenty of potential, but he only played in seven games in his rookie season due to injury. In what was a run-first offense against the Jets, rookie Michael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascal should be in on three-receiver sets next to T.Y. Hilton for as long as Campbell is out. Pittman has more upside in the long term, but Pascal shouldn't be overlooked in the short term in deeper leagues.

  • Chris Godwin Will Play In Week 3

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said that wide receiver Chris Godwin (head) has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will play in Week 3 against the Broncos. Godwin will return to action after missing the Week 2 win over the Panthers. The 24-year-old got off to a good start in Week 1 with six catches on seven targets for 79 yards in the loss to the Saints. Against a Denver secondary that will be missing cornerback A.J. Bouye, Godwin has clear WR1 potential in his return to the field. His return will make Scotty Miller a much less interesting flex option in deeper leagues, especially after he had only two receptions for 11 yards with Godwin inactive in Week 2.

  • Colts Defense Loses Malik Hooker For The Season

    Indianapolis Colts safety Malik Hooker (Achilles) suffered a torn Achilles in the Week 2 win over the Vikings and will miss the rest of the season, according to a source. The first-round pick in 2017 has been injury prone in his career, which is why the team didn't pick up his fifth-year option. Hooker will finish the season with seven tackles (five solo) in two games. His absence for the rest of the season will surely weaken the Colts secondary, but their defense is still worth a play in Week 3 against a Jets offense that is among the worst in the league through two weeks.

  • Sterling Shepard Believed To Have Turf Toe

    New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (toe) is believed to be dealing with turf toe after getting injured in the Week 2 loss to the Bears, according to a source. Shepard will undergo an MRI exam on Monday, but this is an injury that typically requires a wide receiver to miss some time. With running back Saquon Barkley (knee) done for the year with an ACL tear, the G-Men lost two of their best offensive weapons in the same game. Fantasy managers of Shepard should be planning on him missing multiple weeks. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and tight end Evan Engram will be the team's top three receiving options for quarterback Daniel Jones if Shepard misses time.

  • Ziggy Ansah Expected To Sign With 49ers Defense

    The San Francisco 49ers are meeting with free-agent pass-rusher Ziggy Ansah with the expectation that they will sign him after he goes through COVID-19 testing. Ansah has visited with the team twice, but the sides never agreed to a deal. With pass-rushers Nick Bosa (knee) and Solomon Thomas (knee) both suffering serious injuries in Week 2, the Niners are looking for reinforcements on the defensive line. The 31-year-old former first-round pick of the Lions in 2013 had 2.5 sacks in 11 games (one start) with the Seahawks last year and has had trouble staying on the field in his seven-year career. He could provide some much-needed depth, but Ansah won't be on the IDP radar. San Fran's defense is still worth starting in fantasy, but they'll lose some of that high-end potential with Bosa injured.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Has High Ankle Sprain

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain in the Week 2 win over the Jets, and he didn't play at all in the second half. The injury will keep Garoppolo off the field for at least one game and probably more. He was 14-for-16 in the game with 131 yards passing and two touchdowns before the injury, so it ruined what could have been a really good game for him. Already a low-ceiling QB2 in a run-first offense, Jimmy G can obviously be avoided for a few weeks in superflex leagues. Nick Mullens replaced Garoppolo in the second half on Sunday and should get the starts moving forward, but he doesn't have much fantasy appeal as more of a game manager under center.

  • Byron Jones Facing Uphill Battle To Play Thursday

    Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said that safety Byron Jones (groin) would "have to heal pretty quickly" in order to play on Thursday night against the Jaguars. At this point, Jones is a long shot to play in Week 3, which will leave Miami's secondary a bit more vulnerable against quarterback Gardner Minshew II and company. It's good news for Jacksonville wide receivers DJ Chark Jr. and rookie Laviska Shenault Jr. Jones had one tackle in Week 2 and has four total tackles through two weeks with his new team. You should be ignoring the Dolphins Defense in fantasy.

  • Tyrod Taylor The Starter If Healthy

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor (chest) was released from the hospital late Sunday night after dealing with chest pain. As of right now, Taylor is considered week-to-week. His chest issue will be evaluated throughout the week, and head coach Anthony Lynn said that Taylor will remain the team's starter if he's fully healthy. The Chargers probably won't rush Taylor back after rookie Justin Herbert looked very solid in his NFL debut in the overtime loss to the Chiefs in Week 2. Lynn has been very loyal to Taylor, but even though Herbert had some rookie mistakes on Sunday, he probably presents the team with more upside right now. Keep a close eye on Taylor's status this week. If Taylor can't go for Week 3, the rookie signal-caller would become an attractive QB2 in superflex leagues in a great matchup with Carolina.

  • Kenny Golladay Expected Back In Week 3

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring), who has missed the first two weeks of the season, is expected to return in Week 3 against the Cardinals, according to a league source. Golladay was close to playing in Week 2, but the Lions didn't want to risk aggravating the injury. The 26-year-old led the league with 11 touchdowns in 2019 and finished seventh in the league with 1,190 receiving yards, which was his second straight season with over 1,000 yards receiving. You still need to keep an eye on Golladay's practice status this week, but it looks like you can insert him back into starting lineups against Arizona, where he'll have WR1 upside if he's at full strength.

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal caught three balls for 19 yards and a touchdown in a win against the Vikings. Pascal has just seven targets over the first two weeks. The Colts are much higher on young receiversParris Campbell and Michael Pittman Jr. Campbell was injured in Week 2, so this may open the door for Pascal to see more targets with Campbell out indefinitely. With this being said, Pascal has just two games in his career where he has over 100 yards. History suggests that even with more opportunity, Pascal does not hold much value in any fantasy lineup. He will match up against the Jets next week and is worth considering as a waiver pickup in deeper leagues if you're hurting at the position.

  • Mo Alie-Cox Goes For 111 Yards In Win

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox took advantage of his opportunity, grabbing five balls for a game-high 111 receiving yards in Week 2 against the Vikings. Alie-Cox was inserted in the starting lineup due to an injury to starting tight end Jack Doyle. This was just the fourth start of his three-year career, and it is the first time where he had over two catches in a game. It was a nice performance, but this is more of a statistical anomaly than something we can expect to see going forward. He will have a good matchup next week against the Jets, but do not expect to see the same performance, especially if Doyle returns to the fold.

  • Devonta Freeman To Work Out With Giants Tuesday

    Free-agent running back Devonta Freeman will work out for the New York Giants on Tuesday of this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Giants fear they lost starting running back Saquon Barkley to a season-ending ACL tear during Week 2's loss to the Chicago Bears. Freeman's name has been linked to a few teams since the offseason, most recently the Philadelphia Eagles. The former Atlanta Falcons All-Pro could help to replace Barkley in New York if his workout this week goes well. Currently, the Giants have Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman as the next two men up in their running back room. Freeman is worth a waiver add this week, especially if he does come to terms with New York before waivers run in your league. Just don't go crazy with your FAB money as he could only have an early-down role running behind a poor offensive line in New York.

  • Logan Thomas Targeted Nine Times In Loss To Cardinals

    Washington Football Team tight end Logan Thomas had a quiet afternoon with just 26 yards on four receptions in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. Despite the unflattering stat-line, Thomas was targeted nine times, second-most on the team. The Washington offense lacks true playmakers so Thomas has been heavily-involved in back-to-back weeks. His high target-floor make him a solid tight end to roster in fantasy and he can be considered a startable streamer in a solid Week 3 matchup with Cleveland.

  • Washington Defense Shredded By Arizona

    The Washington Football Team Defense was torn apart by Kyler Murray and the rest of the Cardinals offense in a loss on Sunday. Arizona marched up and down the field early in the game and likely could have kept scoring if the Washington offense could keep up. In total, Washington allowed 27 points while picking up one interception and three sacks. This defense will have better days against easier matchups as their defensive line is one of the better units in football. They are in play as a streaming option in fantasy versus the Browns in Week 3.

  • Steven Sims Jr. Racks Up 53 Yards On Sunday

    Washington Football Team wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. caught 3-of-5 targets for 53 yards in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. Sims had the second-most targets of all Washington wide receivers as he's established himself as the top-option behind Terry McLaurin. As a result, Sims should see enough targets to warrant consideration in deeper fantasy leagues. The Washington offense has a good matchup vs Cleveland in Week 3 so Sims has some FLEX appeal in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Terry McLaurin Has Huge Day Versus Arizona

    Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin had a big game in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. McLaurin caught seven passes for 125 yards and his first touchdown of the season. McLaurin led the team with 10 targets as the Washington offense lacks playmakers behind the second-year Ohio State Buckeye. As a result, McLaurin is an attractive option in fantasy as his target floor is very high. He has another good matchup lined up in Week 3 at Cleveland.

  • J.D. McKissic Totals 53 Yards On Eight Carries

    Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic ran for 53 yards on eight carries in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. McKissic was the number two back on the afternoon behind Antonio Gibson who had 13 carries. Peyton Barber, who led the backfield in Week 1, had just one carry. McKissic is known as a passing-downs back so it's no surprise he played a lot of snaps with Washington trailing big most of the afternoon. McKissic doesn't have fantasy appeal except in the deepest PPR formats.

  • N'Keal Harry Targeted 12 Times In The Loss

    New England Patriots wide receiver N'Keal Harry is looking like he is primed for a breakout campaign in 2020. He hauled in eight of his 12 targets for 72 yards during the Week 2 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Harry saw the most targets on the team and tied with Julian Edelman for the most receptions. He should continue to be heavily involved in this offense going forward. Fantasy owners should be able to count on him as a flex option for next week against the Las Vegas Raiders.

  • Julian Edelman Finishes With 179 Yards

    New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was doing everything he could versus the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. He caught eight of 11 targets for 179 receiving yards in the loss. He has been held scoreless through the first two games, but this performance was a step in the right direction. The Patriots don't have many weapons, so they will likely continue to lean on Edelman going forward. He should be considered a high-end WR3 versus the Las Vegas Raiders next week.

  • Rex Burkhead Gets Increased Workload

    New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead saw plenty of chances in the Week 2 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He was the primary receiving back with James White (personal) inactive for this game. Burkhead rushed six times for two yards and caught four of six targets for 47 yards through the air. It was a nice uptick for Burkhead, but he won't be on the fantasy radar going forward. James White is expected to be back for their matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 3.

  • Sony Michel Stopped By Seahawks

    New England Patriots running back Sony Michel was unable to get anything going on the ground versus the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. He rushed seven times for 19 yards in the loss. The Patriots basically abandoned the running game in the second half, so Michel didn't see many chances after the second quarter. He'll get a matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 3, but fantasy owners should consider Michel a touchdown dependent RB3 right now.

  • Cam Newton Almost Throws For 400 Yards

    New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton continued his positive play versus the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. He completed 30 of 44 passing attempts for 397 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Newton also rushed 11 times for 47 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. He was almost able to lead his team to a comeback victory, but was stopped on the goal line. Newton has looked sharp during the first two games of the season. He'll get a favorable matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 3. Fantasy owners should be able to continue to lean on Newton for that one.

  • Seahawks Defense Gets Lit Up In Week 2

    The Seattle Seahawks Defense got a takeaway in Week 2, but they struggled to slow down the New England Patriots all game long. They ran up 30 points on them and nearly lost the game late before a goal-line stand against quarterback Cam Newton. Cornerback Quinton Dunbar snagged an interception, but that was about the only positive this defense had, with only one sack on the night. Based on what we've seen through two weeks, it looks like this defense should be faded when you're looking for streaming options after allowing 55 points through two games.

  • Jason Myers Flawless In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers was perfect in Week 2, but he was unable to get any field-goal opportunities due to his efficient offense. He went 5-for-5 on his extra points, and it was nice to get a solid outing from him. It's unlikely that this offense is going to score touchdowns exclusively moving forward, and you should get safe production out of him every week. If you're looking for a kicker that's going to get you points every week because of Seattle's high-scoring offense, Myers should be on your radar.

  • Freddie Swain Snags A Touchdown In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Freddie Swain seized the day in Week 2. Thanks to a nifty route design, he was wide open to catch his only target en route to a 21-yard touchdown. It was clear that Swain was the fourth receiving option among pass-catchers when you don't include the running backs. Moving forward, he's going to be nothing more than a flyer in extremely deep leagues, but you could be doing much worse than getting a talented pass-catcher in one of the league's best offenses.

  • David Moore Sneaks Into The End Zone In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore had the most improbable touchdown of the season on Sunday night, but it counts just the same. He caught all three of his targets for 48 yards and the score. Due to wide receiver Phillip Dorsett's (foot) injury, the third wide receiver role in Seattle is up for grabs. He's shown a connection with quarterback Russell Wilson so far in his career, and as long as Dorsett remains out, Moore is going to present WR4/5 value on a weekly basis in deeper leagues.

  • DK Metcalf Goes Big Again In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf went long again in Week 2 and he turned in another solid fantasy outing. He caught four of his six targets for 92 yards and a touchdown. This is the second week in a row that Metcalf has averaged over 20 yards per reception, and it's clear that this offense is content to allow quarterback Russell Wilson to stretch the field more and more. As long as Wilson is airing it out, Metcalf is going to have WR2 upside on a weekly basis thanks to his big-play ability. His performance on Sunday night was even more impressive, considering the fact that he was being covered by Patriots All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Metcalf is the real deal, folks.

  • Chris Carson Has A Strong Game In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson continues to be a valuable fantasy asset with a solid performance in Week 2. Carson finished with 17 carries for 72 yards to go with three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown that came late in the game. Carson is firmly in the RB2 conversation, and he has RB1 upside on a weekly basis thanks to his work in the passing game in this explosive offense. While he may not finish every game with a bloated stat line, he tends to come up with a solid performance by the time it's all said and done. Keep him in your lineups moving forward.

  • Russell Wilson Stays Hot In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson finished another phenomenal night in Week 2 with a thrilling win over the New England Patriots. He finished the night 21 of 28 for 288 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. He also added five carries for 39 yards on the ground. His impressive performance nearly wasn't enough, but his defense was able to hold on for a win. Wilson looks like the early favorite for the MVP award, and he's going to be winning a lot of fantasy MVPs if he keeps playing at this level. Fire him up every week with no doubts.

  • Panthers Defense Has Forgettable Day

    The Carolina Panthers Defense allowed 31 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Week 2 loss. To make matters worse, Carolina didn't record a sack, but they did manage to pick up a fumble recovery and an interception. There may not be many promising days with this unit this year in fantasy, though there may be some weeks where they could be streamed. Perhaps they could be streamed in Week 3 against the Chargers, depending upon who they declare as their starting quarterback.

  • Dwayne Haskins Efficient Versus Cardinals

    Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins played efficiently for the second straight week in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. Haskins completed 19-of-33 passes for 223 yards and one touchdown and didn't throw an interception for the second consecutive week. He did lose a fumble, but Haskins has just one turnover through two games which was an issue for him as a rookie. He won't put up the flashiest stats, but Haskins seems to be a quality QB2 in fantasy. He'll have a good matchup with Cleveland in Week 3 where he should be started in two-quarterback leagues.

  • Joey Slye Has Decent Day In Week 2

    Carolina Panthers kicker Joey Slye made his lone field-goal attempt and both his extra-points in a Week 2 loss. Slye made the most of his opportunities, considering the limited amount of chances in the red zone. The 24-year-old has been efficient so far, making all four field-goals and missing just one extra-point. Slye should continue to be a solid, starting option for fantasy managers when he takes on the Chargers in Week 3.

  • Ian Thomas Not Targeted Against Buccaneers

    Carolina Panthers tight end Ian Thomas wasn't targeted in a Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Thomas has sleeper potential but completely disappeared in the gameplan, as he inexplicably didn't see a pass thrown his way. This comes a week after he saw two targets in the first game of the season. He could be a streamer down the line, but there's no way to justify using him in any format for fantasy football right now.

  • Antonio Gibson Scores First Career Touchdown

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson handled 13 carried for 55 yards and his first career touchdown in a loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. Gibson only had one catch for minus-three yards in the passing game, but it was good to see the rookie more involved than Week 1. Gibson's 13 carries were five more than anyone on the team and he was the one handling the red zone touches. Gibson is in a great spot to break out next week against a Browns Defense that's been gashed thus far in 2020.

  • Curtis Samuel Targeted Twice Against Tampa Bay

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel was targeted just twice against the Buccaneers, though he also had four carries for 26 rushing yards. Samuel did see eight targets in Week 1, but other than that, he has been disappointing so far. One positive to take from this game is that the Panthers utilized him more as a runner, which is something that could add a lot of diversity to their offense. That's a role Samuel could play if Christian McCaffrey (ankle) is forced to miss time. Unfortunately, Samuel will be hard to trust in fantasy lineups until he proves he can produce with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

  • Robby Anderson Exceeds 100 Receiving Yards Again

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson looked great for the second consecutive game. Anderson caught nine of 10 targets for 109 receiving yards in a loss to Tampa Bay. The 27-year-old has been targeted an impressive 18 times in two games and has been very efficient with his looks. Anderson comes with some weekly risk because of how deep he's usually targeted. However, if he continues to see this kind of volume, he'll have no trouble smashing his ADP. Up next is a matchup with the Chargers, who struggled to contain Chiefs' deep-threat Tyreek Hill.

    Sep 20 · Source via Panthers Robby Anderson
  • Mike Davis Posts 74 Receiving Yards In Week 2

    Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis caught all eight of his targets for 74 receiving yards against Tampa Bay in Week 2. Davis did his best Christian McCaffrey (ankle) impression after the star back left with an ankle injury and was pretty convincing as a receiver out of the backfield. Eight targets is nothing to sneeze at- if McCaffrey's injury is more serious than the team believes, Davis could be a nice waiver wire pickup, particularly in PPR formats.

  • D.J. Moore Bounces Back Against Buccaneers

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore enjoyed a nice bounce-back game in Week 2. Moore was targeted a game-high 13 times and hauled in eight of them for 20 receiving yards in the loss to Tampa Bay. While he has yet to find the end zone in 2020, he has seen elite-level volume in both games, as he has 22 targets so far. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a nice chemistry with Moore and should continue to look his way, particularly on the short and intermediate routes. Moore gets a good matchup in Week 3 against the Chargers, who have allowed a receiver to exceed 90 receiving yards in both of their games.

  • Darren Fells Scores Touchdown In Week 2

    Houston Texans tight end Darren Fells caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in a Week 2 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted four times. Fells is still a lethal red zone target for the Texans, but with the emergence of Jordan Akins as a viable option, Fells is likely going to have his ceiling capped and is a zero-floor option. Yes, the touchdown upside is there, but it's almost impossible to trust him at this point in fantasy with Akins taking over some of his role.

  • Chris Herndon Struggles In Week 2

    New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon was unable to get anything going despite the team being destroyed by injuries. Herndon caught one of his four targets for five yards in the loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. Both Breshad Perriman (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (hamstring) were sidelined in this one. However, Herndon was unable to capitalize on it. Sadly, it won't get any easier for Herndon next week as he faces off against the Indianapolis Colts. Herndon still has some potential, but should probably be benched in most 12-team leagues next week.

  • Christian McCaffrey Scores Twice, Injures Ankle

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey carried the ball 18 times for 59 yards with two touchdowns and caught four of five targets for 29 receiving yards in a Week 2 loss to the Buccaneers. McCaffrey left the game with an ankle injury and will have an MRI on Monday, though the team is optimistic that it's not too serious. If McCaffrey is able to suit up against the Chargers, he'll obviously be in fantasy lineups. However, backups Mike Davis and Trenton Cannon would pick up the slack in the event that he's unable to play. Stay tuned for the results of his MRI.

  • Breshad Perriman Finishes With 12 Yards

    New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman (ankle) was forced to exit early during the Week 2 blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Before exiting, Perriman was able to haul in both his targets for 12 yards. It's unknown if he'll be able to suit up for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios could offer some PPR upside, assuming Perriman and Jamison Crowder (hamstring) remain sidelined. Perriman wasn't playing well anyway and is quickly becoming a cut-candidate.

  • Braxton Berrios Scores Touchdown In Blowout Loss

    New York Jets wide receiver Braxton Berrios was asked to step up after multiple injuries destroyed the Jets offense. He made the most of his chances during the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Berrios caught six of his eight targets for 59 yards and one touchdown. To be fair, the touchdown was when the game was already over, so it didn't matter too much. The Jets offense has been crushed by injuries, so maybe Berrios can have some PPR value. Although, he'll get a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts next week.

  • Teddy Bridgewater Struggles Against Tampa Bay

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater completed 33 of 42 passes for 367 yards and two interceptions in a 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers. The two interceptions were ugly and he also fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Tampa Bay. Through two games, the 27-year-old has 76 passing attempts, which could be considered excellent volume for fantasy purposes. Unfortunately, Bridgewater hasn't cashed in yet on touchdowns, though he certainly could in the right matchup. That right matchup could come in Week 3 against the Broncos, who have surrendered at least 240 passing yards and two touchdowns to both signal-callers they've faced so far in 2020.

  • Chris Hogan Capitalizes On Extra Targets

    New York Jets wide receiver Chris Hogan (ribs) was able to make the most of his chances versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. He stepped into the No. 1 receiver role after Breshad Perriman (ankle) exited the game. Hogan briefly went to the locker room himself due to a ribs issue, but returned to the game. He hauled in six of his eight targets for 75 yards in the loss. The Jets offense has been destroyed by injuries, so Hogan might gain some fantasy value going forward. However, he'll get a tough matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. He might have low-end flex value for that one, assuming the Jets don't get healthy.

  • Tyreek Hill Scores 54-Yard Touchdown

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill hauled in five receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chargers. The overall numbers are nice, but the Chargers did a good job of containing the pass game. Hill had 11 targets on the evening and should continue to be one of the top targets for quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Hill can breakout at any point with his next level speed and he remains one of the biggest downfield threats in the league. Hill will look to build off of Week 2s success with a matchup versus the Ravens in Week 3.

  • Kalen Ballage Makes Jets Debut

    New York Jets running back Kalen Ballage was able to get involved in the gameplan for the Week 2 matchup versus the San Francisco 49ers. The Jets are desperate for help in the running back after Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) went down. Ballage saw one carry for five yards and two receptions for 12 yards in the loss. Frank Gore saw 21 carries and appears to be the player they plan to lean on. There won't be much upside for Ballage against the tough Indianapolis Colts Defense next week. Fantasy owners should leave Ballage on the waiver wire until he proves himself.

  • Travis Kelce Has Strong Week 2

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce proved on Sunday why hes talked about as the best at his position. The big tight end was the number one target of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and put together a strong line of nine receptions, 90 yards and a touchdown versus the Chargers on 14 targets. In a powerful offense with numerous weapons, Kelce seems to be the one constant that managers could count on every week to produce results. Kelce will draw the Ravens in a Week 3 battle and should always be started by managers.

  • La'Mical Perine Gets Some Touches Versus 49ers

    New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) was banged up throughout the week, but was able to suit up for Sunday's contest. He carried the ball three times for 17 yards in the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is going to be sidelined for a few weeks, which means someone needs to step up. Frank Gore saw 21 carries in this one, but Perine does have potential. Sadly, he'll get a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Fantasy owners shouldn't jump to pick up Perine just yet, but keep an eye on him over the next few weeks.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Returns To Reality In Week 2

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire had an explosive Week 1 in his NFL debut last week, but returned to earth in Week 2 against the Chargers. The rookie was the lead back out of the backfield, but only saw 10 rushes for 38 yards at 3.8 yards per carry. The positive news for Edwards-Helaire was that he was featured in the pass game and caught six balls for 32 yards. Edwards-Helaire already has strong value and if he is able to carve out a consistent role as a pass catcher, he could become a top-5 running back. Edwards-Helaire will look for more opportunities in a tough matchup versus the stingy Baltimore Ravens Defense in Week 3. He should be treated as a low-end RB1 for now.

  • Frank Gore Gets 21 Carries

    New York Jets running back Frank Gore was heavily involved in their Week 2 gameplan. The San Francisco 49ers destroyed them, but head coach Adam Gase continued to keep Gore involved in the game. Gore carried the ball 21 times for 63 yards in the loss. It's nice to see Gore getting that many attempts, but the road doesn't get easier against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Gore could be a desperation flex option for this one, but it's tough to trust anyone on the Jets offense.

  • Jonnu Smith Scores Twice In Win

    Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith caught four of five targets, racking up 84 receiving yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 33-30 win against the Jaguars. The 25-year-old is off to a great start to his 2020 season, having already matched his career high in touchdown receptions through just two outings. Smith's involvement in the passing offense has increased immensely, as he is on pace for over 95 targets this year. Heading into Week 3, Smith prepares to face a Vikings Defense that surrendered five catches and 111 yards to Indianapolis' Mo Alie-Cox on Sunday. He's looking like a TE1 going forward.

  • Jordan Akins Continues To See Increased Usage

    Houston Texans tight end Jordan Akins continues to assert himself in 2020. Against the Ravens on Sunday, Akins caught a team-high seven passes for 55 yards. While Darren Fells still appears to be the end zone target at tight end for the Texans, Akins is seeing more usage all over the field. At a shallow position, Akins can provide some solid depth to fantasy managers who are looking for a tight end, and he appears to be trending towards having a solid week-to-week role on this football team.

  • Sam Darnold Throws Touchdown In Loss

    New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold didn't have a bad performance on paper, but that doesn't tell the whole story. He completed 21 of 32 passing attempts for 179 passing yards and one touchdown in the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He did throw a touchdown, but it was at the point where the game was already out of hand. The Jets don't have many weapons on offense, so Darnold won't offer too much upside. He'll get another tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Darnold belongs on the waiver wire or bench in most leagues going forward.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws For 302 Yards In Tough Week 2 Outing

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 302 yards with a pair of touchdowns in Week 2 against the Chargers in a victory on Sunday. The MVP also rushed six times for 54 yards. The numbers overall were satisfactory, but Mahomes did struggle by going just 27/47. There should be no worries as Mahomes still put up a good performance and failed to turnover the ball. Mahomes remains one of the best options in the game and should always be started. He will draw a tough matchup against the Ravens in Week 3.

  • Randall Cobb Catches Five Passes

    Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb was more involved in Week 2 than he was in Houston's first game of 2020, catching five passes for 59 yards in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Cobb was expected to serve as an underneath option for quarterback Deshaun Watson this year, and on Sunday he looked like he was playing the role as expected. Cobb could be a solid streaming option in full PPR leagues, though we might want to see another game of Cobb at this level of involvement before we fully start to trust the veteran receiver.
