QB: Tom Brady (TB) - 1.2x Multiplier

In the season opener of his 20th season in the NFL, Tom Brady still looked as good as ever. He torched the Dallas Cowboys retooled defense and he looks to continue that this week against the Atlanta Falcons. In his first game of the year, Brady threw for 379 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception that came as a result of a botched hail mary play to end the first half. The Falcons defense looked horrendous in week one against the Philadelphia Eagles, allowing Jalen Hurts to light them up for 264 and three touchdowns. Brady is still lightyears ahead of Hurts in terms of throwing talent and has better weaponry around him at the receiver and tight end positions. Although he only has a multiplier of 1.2 this week, he has a shot of being the highest-scoring quarterback.

RB: Nick Chubb (CLE) - 1.2x Multiplier

Nick Chubb opened his season with a spectacular game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Browns are a run dominant offense and Chubb is the bell cow back for the team. He finished week one with 86 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Although he will not give you too much production through receiving, he has a top back in rushing yards last season. The Browns will face off against the Houston Texans who SuperDraft.io has ranked as the worst rushing defense in the league. This is a perfect matchup to play Chubb despite him not having a great multiplier.

RB: Christian McCafferty (CAR) - 1x Multiplier

Christian McCafferty had an off week in week one by his standards. Despite this, he still finished with 23.2 fantasy points with no boost or touchdowns. He also has no boost this week, however, his one-of-a-kind skillset is something that you can not pass up on. His ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and make big plays on such a consistent basis is something you can’t really find from any other back. He will have a tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints defense that put a halt to the Green Bay Packers offense, however, McCafferty will give them fits.

WR: Tyler Lockett (SEA) - 1.25x Multiplier

Tyler Lockett had a great week one performance against a well-put-together Indianapolis Colts secondary. He finished the game with 26 fantasy points before his boost came into play. This week he is up against a Tennesee Titans secondary that allowed 289 yards and four touchdowns worth of passing offense. Pairing the matchup with Lockett’s multiplier of 1.25 makes him a must-start in week two. The only drawback is that D.K. Metcalf will likely have a better performance this week and will take away from some of Lockett’s targets.

WR: CeeDee Lamb (DAL) - 1.4x Multiplier

CeeDee is another must-start this week. He faced off against an elite Tampa Bay secondary, however, he still finished the contest with seven catches for 104 yards and a touchdown. It would not be unrealistic to expect him to put up similar, if not better stats this week. The Chargers secondary had a good showing against the Washington Football Team, however, they have yet to face a passing offense like the Dallas Cowboys. Lamb is another player that has a high boost for week two.

This is just icing on the cake for a receiver that has the potential to be a leading scorer in week two. Like Lockett, the only drawback is the other receivers on the team. Amari Cooper also put up an amazing stat line last week and there is no reason why he could not do that again this week. However, with the Cowboys being a pass-first offense with Dak Prescott at the helm, there will be plenty of passing attempts to make sure Lamb puts up another week of great stats.

WR: Cooper Cupp (LAR) - 1.3x Multiplier

Cooper Cupp made a great connection with new quarterback Matthew Stafford in week one and this is a trend that should continue in week two. Even though they took on a formidable Chicago Bears defense, Cupp still finished the game with seven catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. They will be facing off against a Colts defense that let Russell Wilson and the Seahawks passing attack run wild, giving up four touchdowns through the air. It would not be a stretch to believe that if this happens again in week two, Cupp will finish the game with a touchdown or two under his belt.

TE: Kyle Pitts (ATL) - 1.4x Multiplier

The tight end pick for the week is Kyle Pitts. Pitts along with the rest of the Atlanta Falcons struggled against the Eagles’ defense. However, with the debut jitters out of the way, week two could be a good indication of how the season will go for him.

Although Tampa Bay has a great defense, they allowed Dallas’s tight end, Dalton Schultz to have six catches for 45 yards. Pitts is a much better player than Schultz and should have no problem doubling those numbers. Along with this, he has a great multiplier of 1.4 this week. If you are still skeptical of Pitts after week one, his opposing tight end Rob Gronkowski could also be a great play this week.

FLEX: Joe Mixon (CIN) - 1.4x Multiplier

To round out the lineup, we have Joe Mixon. If week one is any indication, this may be the week that Joe Mixon finally lives up to the hype. He had a great start to the season rushing for 127 yards and a touchdown against what was thought to be a formidable Minnesota offense. However, Mixon tore them to shreds and looks to do the same thing against the Bears. The Rams did not face the run too much in their game against the Rams. However, they allowed Los Angeles’s featured back, Darnell Henderson to average 4.4 yards per carrying and scamper for a touchdown.
