Mitchell Trubisky - QB - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky connected on 16 of his 27 passing attempts for 120 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 2. He also ran once for eight yards.
Huddle Up: If you watched early, John Fox-era Trubisky, this looked eerily familiar as the third-year pro was heavily managed. Only one of Trubisky's completions went for more than 20 yards, but it was his last one, a clutch 25-yarder to set up the game-winning field goal. Maybe that gives him something to build off. Maybe not. For now, Trubisky should be nowhere near your starting lineup.
Cooper Kupp - WR - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp caught five passes for 120 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Kupp (nine) was targeted more than Cooks (four) and Woods (two) combined this week, and he showed his strength on a bruising 66-yard catch and run that was originally ruled a touchdown. He seems to be Goff's favorite target, but there's too much volatility to consider Kupp more than a WR2.
George Kittle - TE - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught all three of his targets for 54 yards in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Although his owners probably aren't thrilled about Deebo Samuel getting featured this week, it's only going to help Kittle moving forward if another player like the rookie emerges. He is still a top-three fantasy tight end. Considering the Seattle Seahawks' Will Dissly went off for two touchdowns against Pittsburgh Steelers this week, Kittle might be in for a bit of market correction to his slow start when the 49ers host the Steelers in Week 3.
Brandin Cooks - WR - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, Sept. 15, against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Cooks has just five receptions through two games, but 74 yards and a score made Week 2 a success. Keep him in your lineup as a WR2.
John Ross - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross hauled in four of his eight targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Ross was pretty much held in check until the final drive. It was then he got loose for a 66-yard touchdown, breaking a couple of tackles near the catch point before showing off his world-class speed on his way to the end zone. Ross could have it tough against the Buffalo Bills' tough defense in Week 3 and is unlikely to average the 10 targets he is through two weeks once A.J. Green returns, but he's done more than enough to solidify his place in this offense moving forward. Consider him an upside WR3 for now.
Robert Woods - WR - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods tallied two receptions for 33 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Targeted a team-high 13 times in Week 1, Woods saw just two passes thrown his way Sunday. With so many options in the passing game there are always going to be games like this, and doubtless the loss of Drew Brees allowed the Rams to be more conservative than they may otherwise have been. Woods remains a WR2 entering Week 3.
Raheem Mostert - RB - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert carried 13 times for 83 yards and added three receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Owners saw shades of this last season before an elbow injury ultimately ruined his year. While it was clear Matt Breida was the featured back in this one, Mostert contributed early on a 39-yard screen in the first quarter. Life will not always be this good moving forward for Mostert, but he should be considered flex-worthy for as long as Tevin Coleman remains sidelined. That includes Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Malcolm Brown - RB - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown carried the ball six times for 37 yards and had a 10-yard catch against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Huddle Up: While the yardage (47 combined) was similar to Week 1 (53), Brown went from two TDs to zero -- it looked as though he was ready to punch it in until Goff appeared to audible to a quick slant to Cooks for the TD instead. He's a hard guy to trust on a week-to-week basis, but Brown is someone that should be owned in all leagues, especially by Gurley owners.
Todd Gurley - RB - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) had 16 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in the team's 18-point win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Sept. 15. Gurley added three receptions for four yards.
Huddle Up: After garnering 15 touches in Week 1, Gurley had 19 on Sunday. He looks spry at times, but he has yet to find his footing as a receiver, which is an area he excelled the past two seasons. It may be a bit disappointing if you took a Round 1 plunge on Gurley, but his performance shouldn't be a surprise after he did almost nothing during the offseason and preseason. Expect him to round into form as the year rolls on and keep him in your lineup.
Tyler Boyd - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught all 10 of his targets for 122 yards in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Although he did most of his damage on a 47-yard catch, it's hard to complain about a receiver catching everything thrown his way. Through two weeks, Boyd ranks second in the NFL with 18 catches - pending the game on Monday night. While his volume will take a slight hit when A.J. Green returns, it seems clear Boyd will remain a vital cog in this offense. He should be considered a high-floor WR2 again in Week 3, even in a difficult matchup versus the Buffalo Bills.
Jared Goff - QB - Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff went 19-for-28, throwing for 283 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. He also scored a touchdown on the ground and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Goff hasn't been lighting up scoreboards like he did last season, but there are so many weapons in LA you have to believe better days are ahead. He remains a weekly QB1 option.
Deebo Samuel - WR - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel hauled in five of his seven targets for 87 yards and a touchdown and ran twice for seven yards in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Samuel got the start for the second straight week over Dante Pettis and likely tightened his grip on the job. The rookie's seven targets led the team, and the 49ers made a concerted effort to get him the ball on a few occasions. His touchdown came on a goal-line corner route from two yards out. Samuel appears to be staking his claim toward being the featured receiver in this offense and figures to be one of the hotter adds off the waiver wire this week, assuming owners didn't take the plunge after Week 1.
Teddy Bridgewater - QB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 17 of 30 passes for 165 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 15. Bridgewater replaced QB Drew Brees (hand) in the first quarter.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater had his moments, but every positive play he made seemed to be erased by a penalty. It's never easy to take over a game like that, so don't read too much into his struggles. If Brees is set to miss significant time, Bridgewater would be worth considering if your QB situation is poor.
Jared Cook - TE - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook had two receptions for 25 yards during the team's Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Cook was targeted seven times.
Huddle Up: After catching 68 passes last season with Oakland, Cook has done little in two games with the Saints. A pair of injuries (Drew Brees and Tre'Quan Smith) could increase his role, however, so don't be too hasty in moving away from Cook.
Joe Mixon - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) ran for 17 yards on 11 carries and added 10 yards on three catches in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: For those keeping score, Mixon has 27 yards on 17 attempts and 17 yards on five catches through two games. While he deserves credit for playing through a sprained ankle in this contest, the fact of the matter is the offensive line is not helping his cause. Expect more low-end RB2 production at best in Week 3 versus the Buffalo Bills.
Michael Thomas - WR - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught 10 passes (on 13 targets) for 89 yards in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Thomas has opened 2019 with back-to-back 10-reception outings, and his value should remain high no matter who is under center for the Saints.
Tre'Quan Smith - WR - New Orleans Saints
Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) suffered an ankle injury Sunday, Sept. 15, and will undergo X-rays on his ankle.
Huddle Up: Smith caught all three of his targets for 49 yards before departing and was clearly the No. 2 option outside behind Michael Thomas. Look for an update on Smith's condition before considering a move.
Andy Dalton - QB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 26-of-42 for 311 yards and two touchdowns to go along with one interception in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. He added two yards on two carries and was also sacked four times.
Huddle Up: The script for this game was much like it was in the opener in that Dalton was asked to throw all day when his offensive line couldn't open holes in the running game, leaving him to absorb more punishment than he should. Dalton's 93 pass attempts rank second in the NFL, as do the nine sacks he has taken. Things are unlikely to change much on the road in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.
Latavius Murray - RB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray carried the ball five times for seven yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 15. He added one catch for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Of all the players in the Big Easy, Murray might benefit the most statistically if Drew Brees is forced to miss significant time as the Saints could tweak their approach to feature the running game more frequently. Keep an eye out for a medical update on Brees.
Alvin Kamara - RB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran 13 times for 45 yards and added a 15-yard reception during the team's Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Given the early injury to Drew Brees it's tough to read too much into Kamara's quiet day. If Brees misses extended time, it makes sense that they'd lean on Kamara more than ever, and Teddy Bridgewater with a full week of reps should be plenty capable of playing solid football. Kamara remains an RB1 going forward.
