NFL Fantasy Football Week Two Sleepers

NFL Fantasy Football Week Two Sleepers

NFL FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK TWO SLEEPERS – A player gets injured, or someone breaks out and earns more opportunities. These players can make or break your fantasy season. No one can predict the future, so drafting a perfect team is out of the question.

Depth is never bad, so it is best to evaluate your roster weekly. This article is a great place to look and will feature the best waiver wire additions each week. (Rostered Percentages from ESPN)


Brock Purdy (24.5% Rostered)

Purdy will not be a home run hitter because of his defense, but he will suffice as a mid-tier quarterback. He has many weapons and a great play-caller to put him in the correct positions. He completed 65.1% of his passes for 227 yards and one touchdown versus a solid Pittsburgh defense.

The Steelers had trouble on offense, so the 49ers ran the ball more, which will not occur every week. Purdy is a solid addition with some upside because of his playmakers.

Mac Jones (4.9% Rostered)

Jones benefited from a pass-heavy game script in the loss versus the Eagles, but he was impressive. Bill O’Brien trusted him to throw the ball 54 times against a tough Eagles defense with two backup guards to protect him.

He was pressured all game by the Eagles’ interior. He ended up with 316 yards, three TDs, and one interception. His touchdowns came in the red zone, which is a good sign moving forward. He has a good matchup against the Dolphins next week, who allowed 34 points to the Chargers.


Running Back

Kenneth Gainwell (27.1% Rostered)

Gainwell was the primary back used in the Eagles’ win over the Patriots on Sunday. He was on the field for 41 snaps (62%), while D’Andre Swift played 19 (29%), and Boston Scott played eight (12%). He turned those opportunities into 54 rushing yards on 14 attempts, four catches (four targets), and 20 yards.

No one on the Eagles’ offense was particularly dominant; they only had 251 total yards, so the snap share and touches mean a lot going forward on one of the better offenses in the league.

Tyler Allgeier (43.6% Rostered)

The Falcons ran the ball on 54.17% of plays on Sunday, just below where they finished last season (55.29%). They want to run the ball a lot this year, which makes Bijan Robinson and Allgeier viable fantasy options. Robinson will give you big plays, but it seems like Allgeier will get the touches near the goal line.

Allgeier had four attempts inside the red zone and scored twice, while Bijan had three opportunities (two targets) inside the red zone and scored a touchdown. Allgeier also contributed 75 yards on the ground on 15 attempts and added three receptions for 19 yards.


Wide Receiver

Kendrick Bourne – 2.3% Rostered

The Patriots threw the ball a lot in their loss to the Eagles on Sunday, which may be the norm for this offense. Bourne led the team with 11 targets, of which he caught six for 64 yards and two touchdowns. He benefited from DeVante Parker’s absence with an injury and made the most of his opportunities.

He is a talented player who moves all over the field and could help your team this week with a matchup against Miami.

Zay Jones – 29.8% Rostered

Jones had the second most targets on the team with seven and found the endzone on Sunday. He is worth a roster spot based on usage alone and could have a solid matchup alongside Calvin Ridley. Trevor Lawrence has chemistry with Jones, which should help cement his place in the offense as the number two receiver.


Tight End

Hunter Henry – 4.1% Rostered

Henry is the third Patriots’ player to appear on the list this week, but for good reason. They nearly won a game against the reigning NFC Champions and did it from behind. The offense looked great for three out of four quarters on Sunday, and Henry was a big part of that.

He was targeted six times and caught five for 56 yards and a touchdown. He was named a captain this season for a reason and should added if you need a tight end, as they have a solid matchup against the Dolphins this week.
