Well the top guys of a week ago did not live up to their hype, did they? Here are their stats from Week 2:
Javorius Allen – 5 Rec, 35 yards, 66 rush yards, 1 TD.
Kerwynn Williams – 22 rush yards.
Kenny Golladay – 1 Rec, 8 yards.
Tarik Cohen – 8 Rec, 55 yds, 13 rush yards, 1 fumble lost.
Nelson Agholor – 1 Rec, 9 yards, 1 TD.
Williams was quiet this week as the Cardinals looked bad against Indy and Chris Johnson definitely took carries. The whole Cardinals offense still doesn’t look right; let’s hope they get back on track Week 3 but Johnson & Ellington were on the field in overtime and that worries me. On the bright side: Williams is also their return man to add to his value. Don’t cut bait after one week…
Allen looked good on his TD run and is settling in as Woodhead light, which is a hoppy sardines-infused dark chocolate almond butter IPA with less calories. Flacco likes to throw so Allen should remain a flex play, although West is still the bellcow there.
Cohen could have looked better, but Howard was also terrible and the Bears simply got owned, so that Cohen salvaged some fantasy value is good to see. Cohen clearly benefits from being on the field for all the passing the Bears will do. So hold him if you added him last week because better days are coming.
Agholor salvaged some value catching a garbage time TD (though based on that score the Eagles actually had a chance to win (on a Hail Mary), so was it really in garbage time?)
