The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NFL Preseason Week 2: Biggest Winners

NFL Preseason Week 2: Biggest Winners

Publish Date: 08/23/2022
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis
INGLEWOOD, CA - AUGUST 20: Dallas Cowboys wide receiver KaVontae Turpin (2) runs past Los Angeles Chargers safety JT Woods (22) during the NFL preseason game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Chargers on August 20, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.

Biggest Winners

Week 2 of the 2022 NFL preseason saw multiple winners that could surprise when the NFL regular season opens up.

Winner: KaVontae Turpin

The Cowboys already have premium offensive weapons in CeeDee lamb, Dalton Schultz, and Tony Pollard. They might need to include Turpin, a minor-league veteran who was a recent USFL star and logged not one but two return touchdowns in Dallas’ win against the Chargers. He probably secured a spot on the roster, even if he was a punt or kick returner.

Winner: Kenny Pickett

The Pittsburgh product was always the fan favorite in the QB competition. However, he was determined and unfazed when limited action in week 1; week two saw him rise and play well, which should put him squarely in the competition to start in week 1. This made the case that he should be seriously considered as Week 1 starter over Mitchell Trubisky, who is more experienced, but perhaps not more talented. Trubisky has proven that he is not THE guy to have under center if you want to be a serious contender.

Winner: The run-game

Congratulations to all who played preseason fantasy football this week with second or third-string runningbacks. By deploying all four members of their deep backfield, Devin Singletary and Zack Moss as well as James Cook and Duke Johnson, the Bills beat the Broncos. The Eagles were able to get a steady surge from Boston Scott and Kenny Gainwell, with Miles Sanders absent. Justin Jackson, Craig Reynolds, and Godwin Igwebuike combined for more than 100 yards against the Colts. The ground game isn’t dead, it’s just not emphasised anymore.

 

Winner: Malik Willis

Nobody expects third-round rookie Willis to be a polished passer at this stage. However, watching his ability to scramble and occasionally throw side-arms should be enough to get Titans fans fed up with Ryan Tannehill under center. Willis won’t be taking over as QB. But you can see why Tennessee drafted him. He is a great athlete; the question now is, can he become an NFL quarterback?
