Week 2

(DraftKings Main Slate)


Carson Wentz @ Lions ($5,800)

Carson Wentz is back! Maybe. He threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns week 1 against the Jaguars, and will look to build off of that against a Lions team that Jalen Hurts went bananas against. Stacking wentz with Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, or Jahan Dotson makes perfect sense in tournaments at a low ownership.


Matt Ryan @ Jaguars ($5,500)

It looks as if it will be another pick on the Jags defense season for fantasy owners after we witnessed Carson Wentz carve them week one. Vegas has the game slated which will puts the passing, and running game into play. Jonathan Taylor is hovering around 10 k, and Michael Pittman’s price has elevated, but stacking the three together will be unique.


Running Backs

Antonio Gibson @ Lions ($6,200)

Despite a non Crate price, yet a value, we’re going to have to play Antonio Gibson week 2. He should be in line for 20ish touches, in a game script that should favor the Commanders. The Lions run defense allowed 216 yards and four touchdowns to the Eagles in Week 1. Dollar for dollar Gibson may be the best Running Back on slate, and he’ll be popular.


Michael Carter @ Browns ($5,200)

There was a ton of buzz this offseason about Michael Carter taking a back seat to rookie Breece Hall, but led the way week one with 60% of the snaps. Averaging 6.0 YPC Carter also had seven receptions , appearing to be a reliable safety valve for the limited Joe Flacco. He’s a pivot off of Darrell Henderson, and James Robinson who will be very popular in that price range.


Wide Receivers

Curtis Samuel @ Detroit ($4,600)

We have all been waiting to see a healthy Curtis Samuel after signing a lucrative contract with the Commanders, and week one didn’t disappoint. Samuel caught 8-of-11 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown. He also had four carries. He’s too cheap, and too versatile to avoid in a plus matchup against the lowly Lions.


Noah Brown vs. Bengals ($3,800)

Michael Gallup will miss week 2 against the Bengals and Noah Brown figures to be the number two option in the passing game. It is yet to be determined how the offense will look with Cooper Rush under center. Brown’s ability to block will keep him on the field in a game with a script that favors the passing game.


Tight Ends

Logan Thomas @ Lions ($3,400)
It didnt seem that long ago that Logan Thomas was a top six or seven fantasy tight end. Injuries have slowed him down, but has a chance to start fresh with Carson Wentz under center. Thomas will get A Lions’ defense that gave up the second-most yards to opposing tight ends last year.


Tyler Higbee vs. Falcons ($4,200)

Tyler Higbee led all tight ends week one with 11 targets in a loss to the Bills at home. With the departures of Robert Woods and Odell Beckham, Higbee will have a major role in the passing game. At his price point and matchup, he’s hard not to like.


Defense/Special Teams

Steelers vs. Patriots ($2,800)
