Vernon Davis- TE- Redskins
While Jordan Reed continues to get healthy, Vernon Davis might be a tight end you want to pick up this weekend against the Chicago Bears. The Bears have allowed the 5th most fantasy points to tight ends this season. While Davis is in his 15th season, he seems to be able to contribute to the offense year after year. So far in the first two games of the season, he has seven receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown. He is not someone you want to hold on your roster all year, but he has a good matchup against Chicago this weekend. Get him for a buck for a week.

Damiere Byrd- WR- Cardinals
Although the Cardinals have been excited about second year player Christian Kirk and rookie KeeSean Johnson, fellow wide out Damiere Byrd has seen a ton of action in his first two games of the season. So far through week two, he has 10 receptions for 87 yards. Bryd has seen seven targets in both games this year. The former Panther might be someone you want to pick up in PPR leagues. He hasn't showed any big-ply ability yet, but he has been a consistent target for Rookie QB Kyler Murray. You should be able to get him for a buck this week.

Bennie Fowler- WR- Giants
The Giants decided this week that they will be starting rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. Benny Fowler III should help Jones with his debut Sunday after having a quality week 2 performance against the Bills. Last week, Fowler recorded 10 targets which led the team, and he has five receptions in the first two games of this season. It's hard to tell who Jones will lean on in his first start, but Fowler seems to have found a consistent role in the Giants' offense. Try and get him for a buck this week.

Jeff Wilson Jr- RB- 49ers
While he ranks third on the depth chart, Jeff Wilson Jr. was able to find the pay dirt twice last week against the Bengals. He recorded 10 carries for 34 yards and two touchdowns. The 49ers used all three running backs last week, and all of them seemed to contribute in some type of fashion. With Tevin Coleman out for a few more weeks, Wilson Jr. should be able to see more opportunities in the games to come. Matt Brieda and Raheem Mostert will get the bulk of the touches, but if one of them goes down with an injury, Wilson Jr. should be able to start for yout team immediately. Pick up Wilson Jr. this week.

Mason Rudolph- QB- Steelers
With Ben Roethlisberger out for the year, Mason Rudolf maybe the pick up the year. Last week after filling in for Roethlisberger, he recorded 12 of 19 for 112 yards and two scores. The only setback was an interception that wide receiver Donte Moncreif dropped, and the football deflected to a defensive player. Rudolf has a tough matchup next Sunday against a San Francisco defense that has significantly improved from last year, but Rudolf might be a great pick for the rest of the year that you can get this week for a buck. Look at adding the Steelers' new starting quarterback as soon as possible.

Carlos Hyde- RB- Texans
The former Ohio State player is making a mark for the Houston Texans in the first two games of the year. In the first game, Carlos Hyde had 10 carries for 83 yards, and last week against the Jaguars he had 20 carries for 83 yards. Hyde has been able to find a good situation after being with the Browns and Jaguars last year. Hyde is getting a significant amount of carries compared to Duke Johnson Jr. Last week Johnson Jr. had six carries compared to Hyde's 20. If there is one running back you can pick up this week who will make an immediate impact to your team, Hyde might be the guy for a buck.
