Week 2 NFL Prop bet courtesy of MySpari.Com

Cooper Kupp is one of the most consistent players in the NFL.

For betting purposes, we have an opportunity to target this consistency with a gorgeous player prop.

Cooper Kupp had 95+ yards receiving in all but three games over the last two years in the regular season. Oddly, the Cardinals held him under that number for 2 of the three misses.

The Rams just took a beating from the Buffalo Bills to kick off the 2022 season. They’re going to come out guns blazing.

Cooper Kupp is going to be the focal point as usual in Week Two.

I am taking Cooper Kupp over 92.5 REC YDS -115 DK Sportsbook. I personally would take up to 94.5 and -130, depending on your book, as those numbers are comfortable for me.

Let’s get paid!

Ray's Week 3 College Football picks

It's week Three already? This college season is flying already! To date, my college record is 6-3-1 for the season. Let's dive into my favorite play for this week: Cedric Tillman Over 80.5 Receiving Yards.

Tennesee's offense is on fire early in the season. The Vols' offense is 10th in PPG 46.5, 5th in seconds per play, 18th in completions per game, and 16th in Passing Yards per game, 338. Tillman has 15 catches for 230 yards on the season; the next closest is Jaylin Hyatt, with 12 catches for 100 yards. Tillman is 14th in NCAA in targets, 95.8% route percentage, 9th in Y/RR 3.38, and 5th in aDot at 15.4.

If Hendon Hooker is going to produce big-time stats again on Akron...Tillman should have a big day. If you want to jump on the Tillman train with me, the click the button below!

One of the 2024 RBs that has quickly been the hot name is Arkansas’ Raheim Sanders. The sophomore has started his season with two great games against South Carolina and Cincinnati. Against Cincinnati, Sanders totaled 23 touches for 129 total yards. He followed that up with 24 carries, 156 rushing yards, and 2 TDs against South Carolina. He also added three receptions for 30 yards.

During his true freshman year, Sanders flashed in some significant ways. In the last two games of the 2021 season, including their Outback Bowl against Penn State, Sanders totaled 100 yards on only 21 rushing attempts while scoring 4 TDs. Couple that late-season flash with his early dominance this year (2.01 yards per team play and 16.7% reception share) and Sanders has been shooting up people’s rankings. Keep an eye on him this week against Missouri State and expect a big performance.

Kenny McIntosh has been skyrocketing up our draft boards since the start of the college season. The Georgia Bulldog running back appears to have taken over the James Cook role from last year as a receiving threat out of the backfield to complement Kendall Milton. Last season McIntosh and Cook combined for 49 receptions and over 500 receiving yards; McIntosh alone this season is on pace for 84 receptions and over 1000 yards. McIntosh is listed at 6’1”, 210lbs, which bodes well for his transition to the next level. He has gone from an undrafted prospect to a second-round lock in our 2023 rookie mocks with an ADP of 17.3 in September. The arrow is definitely pointing up for Kenny McIntosh, our RB6 in the 2023 class.

Parker Washington, on the hand, is trending down in our community. With an ADP of 25.8 in August, he has fallen almost ten spots in September down to 35.3 as our WR14 in the 2023 class. The Penn State wideout only has six receptions for 90 yards on the season and is giving up touchdowns to Mitchell Tinsley in that offense. Washington scored 64 receptions for 820 yards last season and scored four times while playing second fiddle to Jahan Dotson. With the departure of Dotson, it was expected Washington would absorb the majority of his production. It is early, so there is plenty of time for the Nittany Lions to establish himself, but this situation is one to monitor as we progress through the season.

After avoiding any major injuries in the preseason, for the most part, we didn’t have to wait very long for our first major injuries of the NFL season. Week one brought us some key injuries that we will need to monitor closely:

Chris Godwin, unfortunately, suffered a right hamstring strain after surprising everyone with a stellar initial return from his major right ACL and MCL injury. Of note, Godwin had sustained a prior right hamstring strain in 2020, costing him two weeks. Many people claim that Godwin came back too early (go read this for the counter-argument), but point-being, he suffered a new hamstring strain that will likely cost him several weeks. Upon return, thankfully, he should have a low reinjury risk, but we’ll be without him for some time. Note: Mike Evans (calf), Julio Jones (knee), Russell Gage (hamstring), and Leonard Fournette (hamstring) are all on the injury report.

Dak Prescott suffered a Bennett’s fracture of his thumb, requiring surgery to fixate the unstable fracture. Thankfully, there was no UCL involvement. However, he will still require extensive time to improve his grip strength and ensure he can play in a game without fumble risk or inaccuracy issues. While Jerry Jones stated they wouldn’t put him on IR, I would expect to be without him for 6-8 weeks, meaning we may also need to downgrade key Cowboys players as well.

Elijah Mitchell suffered a high-grade MCL injury that reportedly will require at least two months to return to play and has been placed on IR. Many are targeting Jeff Wilson as the next man up. However, Kyle Shanahan will use the hot hand between Wilson, Jordan Mason, and Tyrion Davis-Price. The critical variable here to remember is the real SF RB1 is likely Deebo Samuel. Tread wisely.

JK Dobbins was a full participant in practice, indicating he will likely make his season debut in the Ravens' home opener. He recently revealed how serious his injury really was, so the fact that he will step onto the field will be a win. I still would not start him in fantasy just yet.

Other key injury notes to monitor this week:

Najee Harris (Lisfranc reinjury) is practicing and expected to play this week but could carry additional reinjury risk and inefficiency. Michael Pittman is managing a quadriceps strain and was a DNP Thursday, so keep an eye on his status. D’Andre Swift suffered an ankle sprain in the 2nd quarter but was able to play through it, and although he has been DNP this week, he states that it is a minor concern. Alvin Kamara suffered a rib sprain that is reportedly mild, but he has not been able to practice yet. Tee Higgins has been progressing well through the initial concussion protocol, so he has a chance to play this week.

All Gas Trade of the Week

Perfect execution of "taking advantage of week 1" by Gump. How many times are y'all going to let CEH do this to you before you say no? Two weeks ago, this deal never gets done. PERIOD. No way! Add in a couple of TD performances, and voila! Sift through the junk; the picks are worthless. Add in the fact that CEH had a snap share of a whopping 35.8%, suitable for 43rd in the league at the position, and this is an easy sell. I'll take the future appeal of a Jameson Williams over being tricked into believing CEH is ever going to be a real thing. GUMP by a LANDSLIDE!

Beyond the Mic🎙

@ATM gives some helpful dynasty tips as we enter week 2 of the NFL season.

Week 1 is in the books and week 2 is here. There were a lot of big performances from players we weren't expecting like Devin Duvernay, Curtis Samuel, Carson Wentz, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Robbie Anderson, and others. We also had many of disappointing performances from big names like CeeDee Lamb, Kyle Pitts, Cam Akers, and Devonta Smith. Not to mention injuries to players like Dak Prescott, Elijah Mitchell, George Kittle, and others. It was a crazy 1st week! Please use this as a reminder to be careful not to make rash decisions based on 1 week of football.

Remember the narrative that 2023 picks were going to be nearly unattainable at this time? Interesting. We have 1 week of NFL action and I have had multiple teams who are in rebuilds sending offers to me where they are wanting to trade 2023 1sts round picks for a player or players. As great as the 2023 class is, these picks are already burning a hole in people's pockets. It doesn't matter how talented a draft class may be, most people want players who are playing today than a pick a year or more from now.

If you haven't picked a direction at this time, please be aware that the value is going to continue to move towards players for the next month. If your team isn't ready to win, put contending pieces on the block and see what kind of value they will net you in future picks. You might be pleasantly surprised at the shift in value. Pick acquisition also removes a lot of the risk as a rebuilder. We saw significant injuries in week 1 and although I don't wish any player to get hurt, I can guarantee that there will be many significant injuries all year. Draft pick numbers can't get hurt.

@Just_Ike09 tells us why to go get Saquon Barkley after an impressive week 1

Saquon Barkley is back. He looked like the electric, game-breaking talent we’ve come to know & love in his first two years in the NFL. Shredding the Titans for 194 total yards (164 rushing, 30 receiving), he’s out to prove the doubters wrong & we couldn’t have asked for a better start.

Questions about his explosiveness were put to bed as he had a 22% explosive rush rate (rate of runs of 10+ yards), 9.11 ypc, and a long run of 68 yards. Throughout the summer and preseason, his ADP was in the 2nd/3rd round range & he has the potential to be the overall RB1 once again, provided he stays healthy.

With a matchup against the Panthers' soft run defense up next (surrendered 187 yards rushing to Nick Chubb & Kareem Hunt last week), he is in another smash spot. Fire up Saquon as a top 5 RB for the rest of the season.

The Guys at Off the Line are just going to R-E-L-A-X after week 1

The NFL is back so that means your fantasy leagues are on fire right now. In the flames of excitement, trades are hitting inboxes at a rapid rate, no matter if you are sending or receiving. Some are good and some are god awful. Let me just tell you, RELAX.

This is after Week 1 overreaction time and is where many crimes happen. Owners will look at the box score and try to sell you on a player like Devin Duvernay because he finished WR9. Yes, he scored twice in the game, and the Ravens lack passing weapons, so someone has to catch the ball, BUT Duvernay only played 52% of the team’s snaps, ran a route on 60% of passing plays, and had a 13% target share. That’s not a player you want to rely on in your starting lineup weekly. You have to look at the utilization numbers to better understand the player's usage in that game.

One key to being a better-informed fantasy gamer is finding resources that can give you a deeper dive into the numbers. If you don't like looking at a bunch of numbers, listen to creators on the Destination Devy Radio Network(wink wink), that deliver the data in a way that is easily digestible so you don't fall for the finesse!

 @EricVanekNFL breaks down where he is looking for value plays at each position.

Week 2 is upon us, and it’s time to get your lineups set. I will give you some more profound plays I like at each position this week for your starting lineups you should be considering. I will be looking at Fantasy Pros ECR rankings to give you a look at guys outside the top 12 at QB, top 24 RB, top 36 WR, and top 12 at TE as some sleeper options to play this week.

Last week, I failed you guys on two of them, so insert Michael Caine’s Alfred GIF from The Dark Knight Rises “I’m so sorry, I failed you, you trusted me, and I failed you!” Classic scene but yeah, hopefully not that dramatic! Week 2, let’s get it, though!

The quarterback outside the top 12 I like outside ECR on FantasyPros this week is QB Carson Wentz for the Washington Commanders. Wentz had a pretty damn good debut last week at home against the Jaguars. Tossing four TDs and looking pretty solid, leading the Commanders to victory. This week he’s on the road in Detroit. Detroit gave up 38 points at home to the Eagles last week, though granted a lot through the ground game. I think Wentz can still have a decent week. I would expect at least two TDs and maybe a rushing TD? Very possible. I’d keep rolling Wentz out while he’s hot right now. He’s got three legit WRs in McLaurin, Dotson, and Samuel, who are all starting worthy in your fantasy lineups. I’m going to ride the hot hand.

Running back this week, I like RB Michael Carter, number 30 on the ECR. Carter looked pretty damn good last week against a tough Baltimore team. He gets another tough matchup in Cleveland this week, but I think Cleveland is a little more beatable on the ground. Also, Joe Flacco targeted the hell out of his RBs last week in the passing game. Carter alone had nine targets and caught 7 of them. In PPR leagues, this guy is a walking double-digit point game in your RB2 spot, and you could do a lot worse. Fire up Carter with some confidence this week.

Wide Receiver I like at WR40 ECR this week, Jarvis Landry for the New Orleans Saints. What a hell of a first week for Jarvis, who looked like the same old Jarvis Landry we’ve seen for years and years now. He is so underrated. He had nine targets last week and caught 7 for 114 yards. In my opinion, Tampa Bay doesn’t have a strong slot CB option, so I think Jarvis can have another excellent game this week for you and be a solid WR3/Flex play option. Remember also, the Saints have beaten Tom Brady in the regular season every single time. Brady has never beaten them in the regular season while with Tampa Bay. So I’m expecting the Saints to put up some points here, the Bucs have an awesome run-stuffing game, so I think it will need to be done through the air. Expect Landry to do well.

Tight end for me this week; I am going to go with Evan Engram for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now the story of my week last week was how badly I picked my T.E.'s. They all sucked—Austin Hooper, Irv Smith, Cole Kmet, etc. So I vow not to let that happen again; you want guys running routes and out there on 75% of snaps, and Engram is the man doing that. He had a modest 4 for 28 last week, but he gets the Colts at home this week. The Colts gave up two T.D.s to O.J. Howard this week, and I think Jacksonville is going to give Engram some opportunities to make some plays here this week. Fire up some Evan Engram!

That’s it for this week guys, good luck in Week 2!
