Washington Football Team rookie wide receiver Dyami Brown has already started to turn heads at his first training camp with the team. With wide receiver Curtis Samuel (groin) on the sidelines, Brown has been able to get some action with the first-team offense. The rookie was drafted because of his size and downfield playmaking ability, and this has been put on display during the team's practices. Brown caught a 40-yard pass after getting a few steps on his man on the left sideline. Although Brown is making a strong impression so far, it is likely he will be very limited in terms of opportunity this season. Wide receivers Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel are No. 1 and No. 2 on the depth chart, and there have been reports that Ryan Fitzpatrick has a strong connection with slot receiver Adam Humphries. With tight end Logan Thomas also in the mix, Brown will probably be fifth in line for targets this season unless someone misses time. He is not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues as of now.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught six of eight targets for 90 yards during Sunday's 17-11 Week 2 win against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel was again the 49ers leading receiver and should be treated as a mid-range WR2 with WR1 upside moving forward. He is also involved in the 49ers' running game, carrying twice for eight yards during a second consecutive road win to elevate San Francisco to a 2-0 record.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Deonte Harris caught one pass for nine receiving yards, adding one carry for a rushing yard in Sunday's loss to Carolina. Harris was looking to build upon a solid Week 1 effort that saw him haul in a long touchdown from Jameis Winston, though it was not to be, as the signal-caller and the entire Saints offense took a step back. Harris can make big plays from time to time, but his boom/bust nature makes him hard to trust for fantasy.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of 40 passes for 295 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 26-17 home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 2. Roethlisberger outpaced his anemic Week 1 output but still only managed to toss one touchdown in the surprising loss to the Raiders. The veteran quarterback's only score was a 25-yard pass to Najee Harris in which the rookie running back did most of the work in catching the short pass, shedding a tackle, and then diving for the end zone. Roethlisberger is looking like a low-upside QB2 for fantasy purposes this season and may be without his favorite target for a while as Diontae Johnson appeared to injure his knee on the final play of the game. Treat Big Ben as a mid-range QB2 in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marquez Callaway caught two of four targets for eight receiving yards in a Week 2 loss to Carolina. The Saints offense as a whole failed to bring their best effort, though Callaway has now disappointed for two straight weeks after putting together a strong preseason. If there was any positive to take from the performance, it's that the 23-year-old finished second on the team in targets behind Alvin Kamara- suggesting that he could perhaps emerge as the second option in the passing game at some point. Fantasy managers certainly can't afford to have him in lineups against a tough Patriots defense in Week 3, so it's best to take the wait-and-see approach with Callaway.
San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) will undergo an MRI, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. The rookie suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles and briefly exited as a result. He did return, which was welcome news, but the team ultimately won't know more about his status moving forward until he receives a more thorough examination. With Trey Sermon (concussion) and JaMycal Hasty (ankle) both also dealing with injuries, the Niners may have to make a transaction or two heading into the Week 3 outing against the Green Bay Packers.
New Orleans Saints running back Tony Jones Jr. was held to just seven rushing yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Jones saw three carries to Alvin Kamara's eight, though it wasn't a particularly ground-heavy gameplan considering the team found themselves down early. The rookie back showed his talent in Week 1, which makes him an intriguing bench stash in the event of a Kamara injury. Just don't expect to be able to start Jones anytime soon.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts didn't do much with his arm in Week 2, but saved his fantasy day with a decent rushing performance. Hurts completed just 12 passes on 23 attempts, for 190 scoreless yards. He was able to be a force on the ground though, running the ball 10 times for 82 yards and a touchdown. His score came on a one-yard plunge near the end of the fourth quarter of a 17-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Hurts will hope for better passing game results next week when the Eagles take on the Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara carried the ball eight times for five rushing yards, adding four catches on six targets for 25 receiving yards in a 26-7 loss to the Panthers. The Panthers defense completely stifled Kamara, who had nowhere to run despite leading the backfield in touches once again. While his down performance likely cost many fantasy managers their weekly matchups, it was a positive sign to see him lead the team in targets after he had a somewhat muted effort in the passing game in Week 1. Kamara's workload and talent still warrant easy RB1 consideration moving forward, even in a tough Week 3 matchup with the Patriots.
The Cleveland Browns defense turned in a disappointing effort in a 31-21 win over the Houston Texans in Week 2. While the final score doesn't look all that close, the Cleveland defense let the Texans keep the game competitive for the majority of the game, despite rookie quarterback Davis Mills taking over for the injured Tyrod Taylor after halftime. The Browns finished with two sacks and forced two turnovers in the win. Cleveland's defense should be a top-12 option in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, provided that they can gel as a unit.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston completed 11 of 22 passes for 111 yards, a rushing score, and two interceptions in Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina. Winston struggled all day against the Panthers' underrated defense, which chased him for four sacks and the two picks. The gunslinger didn't have much time to look downfield, as he was pressured on 18 of his 28 dropbacks, though he didn't do himself any favors. Winston and the Saints are better than what they showed in Week 2- but it won't get any easier in Week 3 against Bill Belichick and the Patriots defense.
