Fantasy Football Week 2 Automated Insights Recap

12 team half ppr Yahoo league - 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DST

The NFL lost Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberg to injury in Week 2, and the New York Giants are benching Eli Manning for rookie QB Daniel Jones ahead of Week 3.

Despite 95% ownership and an early draft pick, Bears rookie RB David Montgomery was started by just 36% of Fantasy owners. After an ugly Week 1, Chicago looked bad on offense again but Montgomery did rush for his first NFL touchdown.

Demarcus Robinson did his best Tyreek Hill impression in Week 2, catching six passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns. It's no wonder why he was added by 513,490 Fantasy owners once waivers cleared!

Raheem Mosert was started by just 2% of Yahoo owners in Week 2 before totaling 151 total yards and touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Dallas Cowboys reminded everybody that Devin Smith is still playing football and when healthy is a legit deep threat in the NFL. With Michael Gallup out for a few weeks, Smith could play an important role in the coming weeks.
