Who's pretending, who's contending?
Darnold has to be more consistent with his mechanics. Chubb is a terrific all-around player and the top defensive prospect on my board. Slide him in opposite Myles Garrett and that's a terrifying pass-rushing duo.
Rosen could battle Case Keenum to start in He's NFL-ready -- if he stays healthy. Roquan Smith , LB, Georgia. A hot name right now, Smith is a sideline-to-sideline linebacker who can play the run and the pass. Indianapolis needs playmakers all over on defense. Wow, that's a little early for Smith. The Bucs' secondary has to get better. Quenton Nelson , G, Notre Dame. Chicago would be thrilled with this pick, getting the No.
Nelson is a plug-and-play guard. How important was that coin flip with Oakland at the combine? Derwin James , S, Florida State. That coin flip looms large, but James is a good consolation prize. He's one of the most versatile prospects I've evaluated, and Oakland needs playmakers on D.

Week 2 takeaways for every team: Concern for Eagles, Steelers?
No denying Saquon Barkley's skills, but Giants goofed in drafting him at No. Cowboys' Prescott rises to 'challenge' vs. Roughing passer flags 'out of control' Green Bay Packers. Kicker Gonzalez costs Browns in heartbreaker Cleveland Browns. College football Power Rankings: Week 2 fantasy football winners and losers 16h Tristan H. While the Steelers are only giving up passing yards per game, their secondary is vulnerable, and so I fully expect Luck to have another monster game with close to passing yards and three touchdowns.
Lofty projections for sure, but Luck is averaging Yes, I do realize that I have recommended the two most expensive signal callers on FanDuel this Sunday.
Not to fear dear reader: Last week against Carolina, Rodgers was a ridiculously efficient for with yards and three TDs, adding 21 rushing yards for good measure. Taking on the Saints in the Superdome, I expect there to be a lot of scoring by both teams, and this bodes well for Rodgers to pad his yardage totals. This is what is known as a differentiation play, meaning a lot of other daily fantasy gamers will not even think about rostering Tannehill.
Jacksonville is allowing passing yards per game, which is the third worst in the NFL this season. Because running backs can earn points with touchdowns, rushing and passing yards, AND receptions, they are usually the most steady source of daily fantasy production. It looks like the Vikings have a new lead running back in McKinnon.
With yards on 21 touches last week, the only thing missing from his performance was a touchdown. I like McKinnon to get his first career touchdown this week. On the season, the Eagles are allowing Fortunately, Ellington derives a lot of his production from the passing game with 16 receptions for yards and a score over the last three games.
He should be a full go, but do monitor the injury news as Ellington was a little banged up after his career-high 30 touches this past weekend. Forsett was solid last weekend with a season-high 23 carries, though for the second week in a row he did not have a reception.
Cincinnati is allowing the third-most rushing yards per game at Spiller and Fred Jackson lost to injury, there will be a new starter in the Bills backfield. Brown was acquired via trade from Philadelphia in the offseason. He has been a healthy inactive all year, but it is my belief that he will be the starter against the Jets. Wide Receiver There are always great WR options at varying price levels and matchups. Typically what you do at the other positions will dictate how you assemble your receiving corps.
Once again Nelson is the number one wide receiver play. On the season, he is averaging Regardless of who is at the helm of the Washington offense, Pierre Garcon will be heavily involved. He stepped into the lead receiver role with the departure of Percy Harvin , and he did not disappoint with seven receptions for yards and a score.
It is reasonable to expect half a dozen catches this week for close to yards against Carolina. Coming off a bye week, a lot of players are forgotten about. As mentioned in the Aaron Rodgers analysis, this is projecting to be a high-scoring game and the Packers are going to need all-hands-on-deck if they hope to get a road victory. The Pewter Pirates are allowing a league-worst passing yards per game. Over the last four games, Wright has been targeted 28 times, the highest on the Vikings over that time frame.
Once again Daniels was solid in his starting role last week, getting nine targets in a game in which Joe Flacco threw just 25 passes. TE tool , the Bengals are allowing more fantasy points to tight ends than any other team this season. Kicker Kickers are very tricky to project, so I typically look for the lowest-priced kicker in a decent matchup, ideally in a dome or a fair weather stadium.
The best teams will have 10 return scores on the season and the worst around four, which makes it tough to know which team to roster. The Cardinals are giving up the second-most passing yards this season at per game, so is it a stretch to think that yards and four TDs is an impossible task?
Well, I can honestly say I did not expect to be writing up a Kyle Orton recommendation this season, but he has been deserving. In his three appearances, he has averaged 28 completions on 41 attempts and just shy of yards per game, so the opportunity is definitely there. With both starting running backs out for the foreseeable future, this seems like a good spot to roll the dice with Orton.
Cutler is capable of flirting with 30 FanDuel points on any given day, but this is an off-off-the-board play and not for the faint of heart. Louis has been effective at preventing opponents to score via the ground game with just five touchdowns allowed this season. However, the Rams are allowing the fifth-highest amount of rushing yards per game.
Murray has had a tremendous workload this season, averaging 30 combined touches per game. At some point he will likely leave a game early with an injury, which is why I am relegating him to GPP status.
Washington is a mess right now and just lost Brian Orakpo for the season.
