Fantasy Football Week 2 PPR Sleepers

Heading into week 2, Tyler Baddick gives you his fantasy football advice on potential sleeper plays.

Week 1 is in the books, with Week 2 of Sunday games approaching, fantasy owners will have to be active on the waiver wire, trying to find great value on waivers. When looking at the waiver wire, fantasy owners must try and find the best value available. The waiver wire can make or break someone's season, making it crucial to find fantasy football sleeper plays. This list of sleepers will be based off of matchup and projected game plan.

Nick Foles- Facing the Redskins in week 2, Foles could be a solid option at QB in deep format fantasy leagues. Foles looked solid against an elite Seahawks defense in week 1 and will get to face a bottom half defense in the Redskins during week 2. Look for Foles and the Rams offense to take multiple shots down the field against a very weak secondary. If you are struggling to find  QB in week 2, Nick Foles could be the play at the position.

Danny Woodhead- After an impressive week 1, Danny Woodhead showed that he is 100% healthy this season. Danny can be a great play week to week especially in PPR fantasy formats. One of the best pass catchers in the league at the running back position, Woodhead will see multiple opportunities. With 2 touchdowns last week, the Chargers will look to keep looking Woodhead's way in the red zone where he saw all 7 red zone opportunities over fellow running back Melvin Gordon.

Cole Beasley- With Dez Bryant out with a broken foot, someone will have to step up in the receiving game for Dallas. The Eagles defense will likely key in on Terrance Williams and Jason Witten, leaving Cole Beasley in the slot. Fantasy owners should look to target Cole Beasley in PPR formats where Beasley will most likely see a lot of passes his way in the slot. Eagles also struggled in week 1 against a Falcons passing attack, so look for a big day from Cole Beasley in week 2.

Donte Moncrief- The Colts struggled against a Bills defense in week 1. But is that likely to happen in back to back weeks? Probably not. Donte was able to find the end zone in week 1 and with the injury to fellow receiver TY Hilton, I expect Moncrief to see an increase in opportunities. The Jets defense will likely key in on Andre Johnson and Hilton(questionable for week 2), leaving Moncrief with less coverage. Moncrief could be a big time play in week 2, just with how explosive this Colts offense can be.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins- 5 catches for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns, Jenkins shined in week 1. Do I expect those same huge numbers? Probably not. But facing a Saints defense, Jenkins has a good shot for another strong performance. The Saints are an average at best defense and the Bucs still do not know if they will have Mike Evans for week 2. If Evans does not suit up, look for Jenkins to be one of the most targeted receiver/tight ends for Jameis Winston.
