Raheem Mostert up, Cam Akers down


Sometimes the second week of the NFL season brings clarity. Other times it just brings more confusion.

Fantasy managers got a mixed bag this time around with backfields in Miami and Los Angeles, while injuries and ineffectiveness have only made things worse in New York and Minnesota. Meanwhile, the passing game in Washington and Green Bay could be better than many experts expected. Let’s take a closer look at that.

WINNERS, LOSERS OF NFL WEEK 2: Patriots have a major problem with their ground game

These players saw their fantasy values ​​increase or decrease the most based on their performance in Week 2:


RB Raheem Mostert, Miami Dolphins: The journeyman turned into a workhorse on Sunday night, rushing for 121 yards and a pair of TDs on 18 carries. Backup Salvon Ahmed also left early, cementing Mostert’s role in the backfield. A juicy matchup with Denver follows.

RB Matt Breida, New York Giants: Breida could be starting in a short week as Saquon Barkley’s status is in doubt due to an ankle injury. The seventh-year pro has averaged 4.8 yards per carry during his career and will face his original NFL team, the 49ers, on Thursday.

WR Marvin Mims Jr., Denver Broncos: Mims showed tremendous downfield ability, making grabs of 53 and 60 yards against Washington. The Broncos could find themselves in a hole this week against Miami, making passing a priority against a Dolphins defense that has already shown a tendency to give up big plays.

WR Jayden Reed, Green Bay Packers: The rookie made his presence felt with a pair of touchdowns in a close loss in Atlanta. With WR Christian Watson continuing to miss time, Reed is QB Jordan Love’s No. 1 receiving option. He still needs some freshening up, but he has 13 goals in two games and should be in the mix even if Watson is healthy.

QB Sam Howell, Washington Commanders: The second-year pro threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns in Denver and has shown he can successfully get the ball to any number of receivers. He connected with 10 different pass catchers in Sunday’s comeback win.


QB Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans: Although he was quite accurate in an overtime win against the Chargers, Tannehill had just one passing score and a rushing touchdown. He’s going to have to do a lot more, and he’s going to have to keep winning, or the Titans could turn to Will Levis sooner rather than later.

RB Cam Akers, Los Angeles Rams: Oh oh. Here we go again. Akers was a healthy scratch after a dismal Week 1 (aside from a rushing TD) in Seattle. Kyren Williams has become a star, with four touchdowns in two games. Akers could emerge as a fantasy option again in 2023, but it might have to be with a new organization.

RB Alexander Mattison, Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings may regret letting Dalvin Cook walk in the preseason. Mattison managed just 28 rushing yards on eight carries in Philadelphia, and he also lost a fumble. He doesn’t look like a workhorse tailback and appears to be more of a complementary piece.

TE Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons: Fantasy managers are in the pits after another stinker. Instead of performing like the TE1 he was drafted to be, Pitts has only managed 59 yards four times in two games. Even Jonnu Smith beat Pitts for the Falcons in Week 2, which isn’t a good sign.

WR Jahan Dotson, Washington Commanders: Dotson entered the season as a fantasy sleeper, and that could all come to fruition. It is early. However, through two games, he has collected just eight catches and 62 yards. That’s not a good sign.
