The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 2017 NFL Fantasy Football Week 2 Recap

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Week 2 Recap

NFL Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap
Publish Date: 09/21/2017
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Standout Performances

Trevor Siemian โ€“ QB โ€“ DEN โ€“ 22.6

After being ranked the 21st best QB option in ESPNโ€™s week 2 rankings, Siemian scored the 2nd most points for the position (behind Tom Bradyโ€™s 30.8). Before the season, people were saying the Broncos may be wasting one of the better defenses in the league on a poor offense. Trevor Siemian is proving he can take control of this offense after 2 straight weeks of 20+ fantasy points. Complemented by a solid defense and run game (CJ Anderson lead RBs in scoring Week 2), Siemian has the tools to be a quality starting QB.

Ty Montgomery โ€“ RB โ€“ GB โ€“ 29

It seems, Montgomery figures to be involved in every GB offensive possession regardless of score. The former WR is one of GBโ€™s most trusted playmakers, and in week 2 converted 16 touches into 110 yards and 2 TDs. The Packers trailed big for most of the game, so to see their RB at the top of the scoring list is surprising. Montgomery should continue to see a large share of Green Bayโ€™s touches both in the running and passing game, making him a solid start every week.

Michael Crabtree โ€“ WR โ€“ OAK โ€“ 32

Crabtree only saw 6 targets, but he made them count with 6 receptions and 3 TDs. Crabtree seems to be Derek Carrโ€™s favorite redzone target, giving him a very high ceiling as you can see with 36 points. Crabtree paced WRs in scoring on 6 targets, whereas Dez Bryant finished 11th in WR scoring after seeing 16 targets his way. Crabtree has value due to his efficiency on targets, but youโ€™d like to a higher volume of balls thrown the veterans way.

Jason Witten โ€“ TE โ€“ DAL โ€“ 25.7

Witten barely edged Travis Kelce for the TE scoring title week 2, and while Witten always sees a solid amount of targets his short down role typically makes him a fringe TE1. Big weeks have been an anomaly for the consistent Witten and most of his value is retained to PPR formats as his 10 catches went for 97 yards and a TD.

Injuries

Greg Olsen โ€“ TE โ€“ CAR

Olsen left Carolinaโ€™s game in week 2 with a foot injury. We now learn that it is a broken foot that will require surgery, sideling the TE for 6-8 weeks. His absence should lead to more targets for Panthers WRs Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess and possibly McCaffrey in the slot.

Corey Coleman โ€“ WR โ€“ CLE

I was very high on Colemanโ€™s potential this season after seeing him connect with Kizer a few times, but the broken hand suffered this week will likely missing at least 6 weeks. Rashard Higgins a 2016 5th round pick of Cleveland showed athleticism making 7 receptions for 95 yards after Colemanโ€™s exit. Higgins and Britt figure to receive more targets until Coleman comes back.

Sam Bradford โ€“ QB โ€“ MIN

Bradford has been injury prone since he was a 1st overall pick back in 2010. Once again, Bradford will miss time. Inactive against the Steelers this week, Bradford sprained his knee week 1 against New Orleans. This is the same knee that has had multiple ACL surgeries. Expect Case Keenum to lead the Vikings for the next few weeks. This news slightly downgraded Vikings WRs until his return.

Jordy Nelson & Randall Cobb โ€“ WR โ€“ GB

The Packers receiving core looked very different at the end of the game than the beginning. Nelson left the game in the first quarter after injuring his quad, on the same leg as the recent ACL injury. Cobb left the game in the 4th quarter with a shoulder injury. The Packers believe both avoided serious injuries, but either could miss games. Devante Adams target share is bound to increase, and Geronimo Allison is next on the depth chart if either miss time.
