Great Eight: Troy’s Top NFL Performers in Week Two

[Here are Ezra’s top performers in Week Two.  I am calling this list the “Great Eight.”  It is a QB-heavy catalog with some marquee running backs and wideouts rounding out the second half of his short list.  Every time you read his post, you think: thank God he is not in my Fantasy League.  Well done, Ezra.]

unknown

  • Matt Ryan, QB, ATL: In a win over Oakland, Ryan threw for 396 yards and 3 TD’s on 34 of 48 passing
  • Ryan Tannehill, QB, MIA: In a loss to the Patriots, Tannehill threw for 389 yard and 2 TD’s on 32 of 45 passing.
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, NYJ: Fitzpatrick threw for 374 yards in a Thursday night win against the division rival Bills
  • Eli Manning, QB, NYG: In a win over the Saints Eli threw for 368 yards in his 40th career game with over 300 yards passing.

unknown-1

  • Isiah Crowell, RB, CLE: In a loss to Baltimore, Crowell averaged over 7 yards a carry with 133 yards and a touchdown.
  • Matt Forte, RB, NYJ: In a win against the Bills, Forte had his 25th career game with over 100 yards to go with 3 TD’S
  • Stefon Diggs, WR, MIN: In a win against the division rival Packers Sunday night, Diggs went off, with 9 receptions, a touchdown and 182 yards.
  • Corey Coleman, WR, CLE: In his second career game, Coleman had 2 TD’s, 5 receptions and 104 yards.

unknown-2

There were also some notable injuries, including seven RB’s that went down including Adrian Peterson (torn Meniscus, no timetable to return), Doug Martin (hamstring, three weeks), Arian Foster (groin, one-two weeks), Jonathan Stewart (leg, up to two weeks) and Danny Woodhead (Torn ACL, season).  And of course, the Pats are in a major pinch at the QB spot as backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo sprained his AC against the Dolphins.

It should make for an interesting Week Three.

    I think that Rob Kelley was fantastic in a loss against Dallas. He rushed for over 200 yards! And did you see Dayanim on Los Angeles?? He was fantastic! 102 yards on six catches and a TD! #MVP?

  2. Alfred says:

    Eli is a great guy. He is overpaid and I question whether the Giants can win another Super Bowl with him taking up all that cap space

  3. Sturges says:

    Great piece. It will be interesting to see where the Raiders go over the course of the season. They could very well be 0-2. They have a tough set of division games against Chiefs and Broncos. Did Ryan play great against a good team? Are the Raiders not what some were saying after Week One? I am not sure.
