Best Week 2 Fantasy Football Players by Positions
These are the best week 2 fantasy football players by positions. Below are my top 3 fantasy plays by position this week and will be sure to bring you home a lot of fantasy points. Hope you enjoy and leave a comment below of your favorite fantasy picks for week 2.
Best Week 2 Fantasy Football Picks
Josh Allen – Like it or not, he is the Bills entire offense. The Bills ran 81 plays last week against the Jets. Josh Allen threw it 46 times and ran it 14 times. Therefore, 60 of the 81 plays were opportunities for Josh Allen to pad his stats. Miami will be no different. The Dolphins also play a good bit of man coverage so when, not if, Allen takes off running he could have some big gains.
Tom Brady – You know how to get Tom Brady to play his best? Call him out. Bruce Arians did just that and he knows it lit a fire within Brady. The Panthers secondary is toast against anyone they play. However, in Week 2 down in Tampa Bay it will get ugly.
Ben Roethlisberger – This might be a bit of a surprise, but Big Ben is primed to destroy a Broncos secondary that is not a strength for that defense. First off, AJ Bouye has been sent to IR which provides a problem for Denver. Rookie Michael Ojemudia struggled in his first NFL game last week against Tennessee. The Broncos were able to sack Tannehill but only once so they are already missing Von Miller. Ben on the other hand was able to find his number 1 guy Juju several times against the Giants. He threw for 3 touchdowns and I expect him to match that again this week. At least 300 yards and 3 TDs for Big Ben in the Steelers home opener.
Dalvin Cook – The Vikings are 0-1 and in need of a win to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start. Point blank and period, they are going to give the ball to their best player a ton. Dalvin only had 12 carries last week when they lost to Green Bay and partly because they were down two scores at halftime. Expect the Vikings to rely heavily on the run and even get Dalvin a few passes like usual. Big day for Cook coming up.
Clyde the Glyde – Take the over in this game. I expect this divisional matchup to have some fireworks and Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be a beneficiary of that. He is leading the NFL in rushing after one week and he will still be leading after week 2 with another 100 yard day. The Chargers added Chris Harris to their secondary this offseason and they obviously know how deadly the Chiefs passing attack can be. Therefore, Clyde the Glyde is going to be the element of surprise!
Big Hen – The Jacksonville Jaguars play the Titans in Nashville. That is all that needs to be said. Big Hen’s last two home games against the Jaguars have been mind blowing. In 2018 he had the famous 99 yard TD and finished the game with 238 yards and 4 TDs. Last season he had 159 yards and 2 TDs. The Jaguars have the same defensive coordinator as they did in those two games and are still clueless when it comes to stopping Derrick Henry. He will run wild again.
Mike Evans – Bruce Arians said get him the ball, so Tom is going to get him the ball. After being a question mark all last week, Mike Evans still played against New Orleans. Although he played, he was limited to one catch that happened to be a score. Bruce Arians was not happy that his stud receiver was that ineffective so expect Evans to be flooded with targets against a below average Panthers secondary. Also, Chris Godwin is in concussion protocol which might cause him to miss the game or be a small part of the plan.
Mike Will – Mike Williams was questionable heading into Week 1 with a shoulder injury. However, he played and showed some juice. 4 catches for 69 yards is not overly impressive, but he did make some acrobatic grabs that did not count and proved that he is not letting his shoulder bother him. The Chiefs are struggling at corner. Will Fuller had a 100 yard day and consistently beat his man whether it was short, intermediate or deep. Expect the Chargers to be aggressive and also trailing which should mean more opportunities for Mike Will.
Davante Adams – The man is on a mission. Adams was wide open all day against Minnesota and there won’t be anyone in Detroit’s secondary that can guard him either. Jeff Okudah is still out and Justin Coleman was sent to IR after being injured in Week 1. Adams is going to have a field day in the Packers home opener.
TJ Hockenson – Big Hock turned in 5/56/1 last week against Chicago. He was constantly in the slot and even running deep challenging defenders downfield with his size. His touchdown came in the redzone where he was able to body his defender and make a contested catch. The Packers pass defense is good but their best cover guy Jaire Alexander will not be assigned a tight end. Kenny Golladay is out again this week which keeps the door open for more targets to go to Big Hock.
Chris Herndon – Herndon had 6 catches last week against the Bills. The Jets have another good defense across from them this week so someone is going to have to step up and create a spark for this team. Expect the Jets to be down and forced to throw.
Greg Olsen – The ageless wonder Greg Olsen has a Sunday night showdown with the Patriots. Olsen will be the x factor for the Seahawks. Russell Wilson was able to connect with Olsen for a score in Week 1. The Patriots will have to focus their attention on Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, which means Olsen can take advantage of the single coverage he will receive from the Pats 3rd or 4th best cover guys.
Cairo Santos – Santos has been a breath of fresh air for the Bears. He made all his kicks in Week 1 going 2/2 on FG attempts and 3/3 on XPs. Congrats Cairo! The Bears now have someone they can trust.
Robbie Gould – The 49ers are going to have their way with the Jets which is always good for kickers. A lot of extra points and sprinkle in a few field goals on drives that stall. Easy money.
Daniel Carlson – The Raiders are going to value points against the Saints. Carlson was 100% last week at Carolina hitting all 4 XPs and both FG attempts including a 54 yarder.
Buffalo Bills – Dolphins fans will be wanting Tua Tagovailoa before this game is over with. The Dolphins still cannot run the ball and Fitzpatrick is still forcing throws. The Bills are going to go to Miami and get after the fish. Lock it in.
Arizona Cardinals – I am giving the Cardinals another shot. I picked them last week and they disappointed. Rookie Isaiah Simmons did not have a good debut. The Cardinals did get 3 sacks which was a bright spot. Haskins will have a few overthrows and maybe a fumble but the bottom line is Washington’s offense will struggle in the desert.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – The Bucs were fast and showed some juice in New Orleans Week 1 despite losing and giving up 34 points. They still have a top notch run defense which was on display last week as the Saints could only gain 82 yards on 34 carries as a team. I predict a late pick six from Teddy Bridgewater to seal the Bucs as a top 3 defense in Week 2.
