* The Song I am ALL IN on this Week: (Are You Tired - Rose) *
Josh Allen: Allen completed 71.1% of his 46 attempts in the Bills week one win against the hapless Jets. Allen threw two touchdowns and rushed for an additional one. Speaking of rushing Allen rushed 14 times for 57 yards, so much for not running as much right? Allen did all this damage while the Bills were in complete control of the game, which they controlled throughout the entire contest. Fast forward to this week two matchup where Allen and the Bills travel to South Beach to take on a Miami team who looked equally as bad as the Jets in week one. The Miami defense allowed 75 yards and two scores to Cam Newton last week, which bodes well for Allen, who is much more athletic then Newton at this stage of their careers. So with his recent success against Miami and his rushing ability I foresee a big week for Allen yet again in week two, thus I am all in this week.
(24/35 - 417 Yards - 4 TD's and 4 Rushes for 18 Yards) (34.48 FP)
Kyler Murray: Yes, I am aware he faces a dominant Washington front seven that sacked Carson Wentz an unbelievable 8 times in week one. However, unlike Wentz, Murray possesses elite elusiveness and speed. Jack Del Rio will no doubt have his front seven bringing the heat in this one again, but Murray will be able to slip out of the pocket and exploit the defense where it is most vulnerable, the secondary. Murray will be able to carve up this injured Washington secondary on his way to yet another big day on the ground and through the air. With that said I am all in this week on the second year gun slinger.
(26/38 - 286 Yards - 1 TD- 1 INT and 8 Rushes for 67 Yards - 2 TD's) (33.14 FP)
Derrick Henry: Henry didn't have a great opening game against Denver Monday, but he did see a lot of work as that work horse for the Titans. This week he gets a much better matchup as he and the Titans are set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. In week one this Jacksonville defense allowed a total of 50.8 fantasy points to the Colts trio of running backs Mack, Taylor, and Hines. With Henry being the only back essentially in this backfield, Henry is in line for most of these fantasy points. Let's not forget that over his last three games against the Titans, Henry has 7 touchdowns and averages of over 27 fantasy points per game. This makes me all in on the workhorse back in week one.
(84 Yards Rushing) (8.40FP)
Ronald Jones: Ronald Jones has been one of, if not, the single most polarizing player this off season. Many were out on Jones entering this season, including myself, especially with the signing of former Jaguar Leonard Fournette. However, last week Bruce Arians held true to his word of Jones being "Their Guy." As the season goes on and Leonard becomes more comfortable in this offense we will see if that is still the case, but for the time being we are going to proceed as if he is their guy. This week ROJO finds himself in an absolute smash spot against a Panther team that just got lit up by the Raiders Josh Jacobs. If either Godwin or Evans is forced to miss this week, Godwin looking like the one who would miss, we can expect the Bucs to run a lot of 12 personnel. Last week Tampa used two tight end sets on 25% of their offensive snaps. In week one Jacobs averaged 5 yards per carry out of 12 personnel. ROJO will be a nice value play this week in DFS, so I am all in this week for not only DFS, but season long as well.
(23 Yards Rushing - 1 Rushing TD and 2 Receptions for 4 Yards) (8.7 FP)
Parris Campbell: When many look at this matchup they will be licking their chops at the idea of plugging in TY Hilton into their DFS and season long line ups. You see, a lot of fantasy owners make the mistake of picking a player in DFS based on name recognition. Many know who Hilton is and see that green number next to his name and are like oh ya. I too will be salivating over this matchup, but not for Hilton. I will be looking at second year wide out Parris Campbell. Campbell looked fantastic last week playing the joker/moveable chess piece against the Jaguars. In actuality Campbell was used much like Hilton has been in the past, so is it crazy to assume that Campbell is now the new TY Hilton in this offense? Not at all. I believe Campbell is going to feast against this young struggling Minnesota secondary, that since 2019 have allowed the third most fantasy points to the position. I want every bit of that action, therefore I am all in on Campbell for week two.
(7 rushing yards) (.7 FP) (Injured)
Scotty Miller: This next player I am all in on is contingent on if Godwin is able to clear the concussion protocol, which isn't looking good. Even with Godwin active Miller may still be in play, as he was tied for the most targets on the Bucs last week against the Saints. This shouldn't be a shocker to you, as he has shown great rapport with Tom Brady ever since the Goat arrived in the sunshine state. Last week in that game against a tough Saints defense Miller put up 12.9 fantasy points. This week Miller gets a much easier matchup in a young Carolina secondary, that will have to try to defend a pissed off and motivated Tom Brady, who will be eager to bounce back after a lack luster Tampa debut. For these reasons I am all in on Scotty Miller in week two. So, as the Spam King Dave Hess would say "IT'S MILLER TIME." .
(2 Receptions for 11 Yards)( 1 Rushing Yard (3.2 FP)
Jared Cook: With no Michael Thomas likely in the Monday Night matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders, Jared Cook gets an added boost. In week one Cook saw seven targets against Tampa Bay, so a boost to that bodes well for the Veteran tight end. Since Drew Brees returned from his thumb injury last season Cook has had just one game with fewer than 40 yards. Oh ya, and it's our favorite type of fantasy game, a REVENGE GAME. Sign me up for a cookie this week, as I am all in on the veteran tight end.
(2 Receptions for 13 Yards - 1 TD) (9.3 FP)
Jonnu Smith: With AJ Brown set to miss the week two contest against the Jaguars, and Corey Davis dealing with a hamstring injury of his own, Smith is looking like he is in line for a high volume game. In the Monday Night opener against Denver, Smith saw seven targets and scored. This week Smith goes against a Jaguar defense that has allowed the 8th most fantasy points to the tight end position since 2019. I project a 60% chance of scoring in this one for the big tight end thus making me all in this week on Jonnu.
(4 Receptions for 84 Yards - 2 TD's) (24.4 FP)
