Fantasy football Week 2: Start and sit

Panthers 19, Jets 14: Corey Davis is an obvious start going forward.

Texans 37, Jaguars 21: The flukiest line of the week: Mark Ingram’s 85 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. Houston won’t have many leads — let alone many big leads — for Ingram to receive this type of workload going forward.

Chiefs 33, Browns 29: Buy low on Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He produced an unspectacular day against Cleveland, but it was primarily because of game script. There’s a whole bunch of touches coming and the production will follow.

Dolphins 17, Patriots 16: Nelson Agholor had a solid day (72 yards on five receptions) and scored a touchdown, but Jakobi Meyers is the New England wide receiver you want going forward.

Saints 38, Packers 3: Juwan Johnson doesn’t deserve your attention yet, but Adam Trautman does. Johnson caught everyone’s attention with two touchdowns, but Trautman saw the 30% target share, which is impressive for a tight end. Target Trautman if he’s available in your league.

Broncos 27, Giants 13: Sell high on Melvin Gordon. The majority of Gordon’s production came on a 70-yard touchdown, and Javonte Williams ended the game with more carries, touches and snaps. That gap will only widen as the season progresses.


Rams 34, Bears 14: The trade for Sony Michel caused Darrell Henderson’s value to take a dip during draft season. Well, Michel didn’t see the field until the last five minutes of the blowout. Henderson has top-10 upside this season.

Raiders 33, Ravens 27 (OT): Latavius Murray will likely end up the primary option at running back for Baltimore. Murray was on the field when the game was on-the-line and scored a touchdown, after Ty’Son Williams got off to a hot start at the beginning of the game. Murray has RB2 upside in standard formats.
