This is it — the final preparations for Week 2 are being formulated. With each passing day, the fantasy football manager is given more insight and stats to inform their decision on who to play in Week 2. With Keenan Allen gone for the season, there’s a major WR shakeup in San Diego, and with Rob Gronkowski possibly missing another game, and Zach Ertz questionable, TEs are going to be needed. There’s also points to be had in the Saints/Giants game.
As we saw with Quincy Enunwa on Thursday night, there are plenty of waiver adds and deep sleepers that can help you win in a 14, 12 or even a 10 team league this week. There’s also plenty of players out there who can make a huge difference on your daily fantasy squads.
Here are Week 2’s deep sleepers and sneaky plays.
JAX RB TJ Yeldon
Yeldon touched the ball 25 times in Week 1, rushing 21 times for a measly 39 yards, but he got the touchdown and caught 4 balls for 30 yards. With Chris Ivory likely out after a hospital stay due to an illness, the Jaguars will likely lean on Yeldon once again. He may not be the complete back the Jags wanted when they drafted him in the second round of the 2015 draft, but he’s facing a Chargers defense that allowed Spencer Ware to feast, and all the touches are his. All of them. According to Rotoworld, he was in on 87.5 percent of Jacksonville’s offensive snaps.
He’ll ping pong all around the field.
