Ok, so Kerwynn Williams didn’t have a great first start for the Cards against a subpar
Colts defense. Chris Johnson sort of took over in the second half. Not exactly the
results we were looking for. And alright, Deshaun Watson may not have had a
spectacular game passing the ball, but he did somewhat make up for it with 67
rushing yards and a touchdown. And I get it, Tarik Cohen may not have had that
great of a game against the Buccaneers, but it wasn’t horrible either. My week one
must-adds overall may not have been spectacular in week two, but give Watson and
Cohen a chance, they should improve as the season progresses. Williams… eh, we’ll
Anyway, here are my must adds for week two (assuming J.J. Nelson is already
owned in your leagues; if not he is #1):
3: TE Benjamin Watson, Baltimore – The old man’s still got it. Watson hauled in all
eight of his targets for 91 yards in his week two match-up against the Browns. Yeah,
it’s the Browns, I feel you, but if you are desperate for a tight end the 36-year-old
has some surprising upside.
2: RB Samaje Perine, Washington – Rob Kelley left this weekend’s game with a rib
injury, and Perine stepped in and finished with 21 carries for 67 yards. Not
amazing, but worth a speculative add as he should figure to be the ‘Skins starter
moving forward if Kelley misses any time.
1: WR Rashard Higgins, Cleveland – “A Cleveland receiver at the top??” you may ask,
but Higgins came down with seven of his 11 targets for 95 yards in the week two
matchup against a stingy Baltimore secondary. Corey Coleman, the favorite target of
QB Deshone Kizer, will now miss about six weeks with a broken hand, making
Higgins an even more attractive addition.
Moving forward with a new segment, here are my College Football locks of the
Notre Dame -4.5 @ Michigan State
SMU -6 vs. Arkansas St
LSU -23.5 vs. Syracuse
I don’t have enough words left to explain, just trust me.
Let’s see if I’m more accurate this week.
