Of our waiver pickup recommendations, Quincy Enunwa really lived up to the expectations. For the second week in a row, Enunwa was the favorite target for Sam Darnold. Despite the Jets opening up the floodgates for Darnold to let it rip 41 times, Enunwa finished with a second straight double-digit target game.
PLAYER COMPARISON: Quincy Enunwa vs. Golden Tate
PLAYER COMPARISON: Jordan Wilkins vs Peyton Barber
The return of Marlon Mack affected Jordan Wilkins' carry-rate, but he still was the more dynamic back with 10 carries for 60 yards. His 6.0 yard per carry mark dwarfed that of Mack's 3.4. Wilkins tied with Nyheim Hines, garnering 39 percent of the Colts' offensive snaps. It will be interesting to see if Wilkins will continue to hold on to the main ball-carrier role. Although with Frank Reich's fresh experience in Philadelphia, a three-headed monster is more likely.
As for Week 3, certain players' roles began to crystalize while another player's hot start may force you to ride it out.

Five years after MRSA or Staph infection infiltrated the Tampa Bay locker room, the Bucs have been infected with "Fitzmagic." In two games, Fitzpatrick has completed almost 80 percent of his passes for 819 yards and eight touchdowns. The Bucs are two and oh, and the biggest question surrounding Tampa outside of Fitzpatrick's fashion choices on Sunday, is whether or not former number one pick, Jameis Winston, will be starting when he returns from suspension.
From a fantasy football standout, Fitzpatrick is a must add, unless you have one of the top five quarterbacks. He leads the entire league in fantasy points, and has done it against two defenses that were expected to land in the top echelon of stoppers in the league.
Now, the Bucs take on a Steeler defense that gave up 21 points in–what amounts to–a tornado against Cleveland and 42 points to Kansas City.
Catch the Fitzmagic before it vanishes as quickly as it appeared.
Harbaugh is enamored with Buck Allen inside the red zone, inexplicably so. Alex Collins saw limited work in that area last year. Once again getting sniped. Coaches are a stubborn species.

Baltimore currently ranks in the top 10 in passing in the NFL. Allen is the Ravens' primary receiver out of the backfield. In Week 1, Allen led the team in snaps, in Week 2, he shared the lead-back role with Alex Collins. He has out-touched Collins 23 to 21 through two weeks. Allen has scored each week, including a goal-line score.
What we're trying to say is the Collins that burst onto the scene last season has not showed up yet. Allen's role in Baltimore is much more pronounced at the moment as a pass-catching threat and the chosen goal-line back, and worth the add.

Many expected John Ross to be the secondary wide receiver to AJ Green, but it has been Boyd who has really emerged out of the slot. Boyd has also been the one who has been in the game for every Dalton pass, not Ross. When referencing the graph above, Boyd is right up there with Green in terms of targets and opportunity. No one else comes close. As long as Andy Dalton continues on his current trajectory, Boyd could be a really nice WR2/Flex option on a weekly basis.
Through two games, no one has thrown the ball more than the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger. James is tied for third with 11 targets through two games, hauling in eight of those opportunities. His receiving yards through two weeks is second only to Juju Smith-Schuster. There was some fear that the return of Vance McDonald last week would limit James' potential. Not only did McDonald not affect James, but his 138 receiving yards was also the most of his career.
If you're struggling at tight end or have failed to find a replacement for Greg Olsen or Delanie Walker, James would be a nice addition.
