Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907178 Stud - Martellus Bennett vs. MIN Stud+-+Martellus+Bennett+vs.+MIN Fantasy Football

The Bears' tight end found the end zone twice in the same game for the first time in his career.  The seven receptions (76 yards) mark the second time in his career Bennett has caught that many balls in the same game.  It's worth noting that Bennett made a heck of a catch out of bounds and crashed into a camera man earlier in the game.  He was down for several minutes before he returned to action and scored the game-winning touchdown for Chicago. - Ryan Fowler

He may have failed to find the end zone for the Packers, but James Jones was Aaron Rodgers' favorite target in Week 2.  Jones, who led all NFL receivers with 14 touchdowns last season, finished with 11 receptions on 12 targets for 178 yards.  All three categories are personal bests for the receiver in his seventh season out of San Jose State. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907176 Dud - Browns offense vs. BAL Dud+-+Browns+offense+vs.+BAL Fantasy Football

With the exception of Jordan Cameron (203 yards, TD), the Browns' fantasy prospects on offense have been muted through the first two games.  Trent Richardson, a first-round pick in many fantasy football drafts, has gained 105 yards on the ground with no scores.  Brandon Weeden gets Josh Gordon back from suspension next week, but the way the second-year quarterback has performed, I'm worried that might not make much difference. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907226 Stud - Jimmy Graham's first half Stud+-+Jimmy+Graham%27s+first+half Fantasy Football

Due to Rob Gronkowski's numerous surgeries, Jimmy Graham created some separation between himself and the second-best fantasy football tight end in the game.  He showed us why in the first half of the Saints' lightning-delayed game against the Buccaneers.  Graham posted 156 yards and a touchdown through the first 30 minutes.  That's 21.6 fantasy points, for those of you scoring at home.  - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907210 Dud - Reggie Bush vs. ARI Dud+-+Reggie+Bush+vs.+ARI Fantasy Football

Reggie Bush was off to another hot start for the Detroit Lions on Sunday until he suffered a knee injury following a long catch and run.  He hobbled off the field under his own power and later returned to the game.  However, on his first touch post-injury, Bush fumbled the rock and watched most of the rest of the game from the sidelines.  He finished with 69 total yards and no scores. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907204 Stud - Eddie Royal vs. PHI Stud+-+Eddie+Royal+vs.+PHI Fantasy Football

Eddie Royal took fantasy football by storm during his rookie season with the Denver Broncos.  He finished with 980 yards with five touchdowns in 2008.  Over the next four seasons, depth chart changes, injuries and relocation to San Diego limited Royal's fantasy production.  He only scored five touchdowns 2009-2012.  However, Royal has found new life in 2013 in the Chargers' offense. 


In Week 2, he caught seven of eight passes for 90 yards and scored three touchdowns against the Eagles.  That's on top of the two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Texans.  So, Royal has five touchdowns through two weeks of the season matching his career-best for a season.  Also, with Malcom Floyd likely out for the immediate future (neck injury), Royal's fantasy value will be red hot on the waiver wire this week. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907192 Dud - Roddy White vs. STL Dud+-+Roddy+White+vs.+STL Fantasy Football

Unlike Dez Bryant's foot injury, Roddy White's bad wheel (high ankle sprain) impacted his fantasy football production for the second straight week.  He only caught three balls on three targets for 21 yards against the Rams.  He has five receptions for 40 yards in limited playing time.  He may be "ACTIVE" on Sundays, but until that ankle sprain heals, he's not worth the risk. - Ryan Fowler

Dale Zanine - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/15/091513-NFL-Studs-Duds-TV-G5_2013091516484694_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/15/091513-NFL-Studs-Duds-TV-G5_2013091516484694_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907184 Stud - Dez Bryant vs KC Stud+-+Dez+Bryant+vs+KC Fantasy Football

The headline in the Fort Worth Star Telegram a day ago was "Dez Bryant not worried about sprained foot."  This wasn't lip service to the local media.  Bryant caught nine balls (13 targets) for 141 yards and a touchdown.  This shouldn't come as a surprise to the number of fantasy football owners who thought about benching Bryant in Week 2.  He produced at a high level with a broken finger last season.  So, the rule remains: If Dez Bryant is active, he starts. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907177 Dud - Ray Rice vs. CLE Dud+-+Ray+Rice+vs.+CLE Fantasy Football

Ray Rice left his Week 2 contest against the Browns with a hip flexor, but his fantasy production pre-injury has come up short for owners.  The first-round running back has picked up 72 yards on 25 carries (TD) in two games this season.  An injured hip might be the window Bernard Pierce investors need to cash in on their late-round draft pick.  Pierce scored a touchdown against the Browns on Sunday and is in prime position to start Week 3. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907173 Stud - Aaron Rodgers vs. WAS Stud+-+Aaron+Rodgers+vs.+WAS Fantasy Football

A week after Peyton Manning set many fantasy football league records with 60.3 fantasy points against the Ravens, Rodgers was on pace to break it after two quarters of play against the Redskins.  A-Rod posted 30.8 fantasy points against the Redskins in the first half.  He came up well short of Manning's mark, but still finished with 480 passing yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.  Rodgers posted 42.9 fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues. - Ryan Fowler

Fantasy Football 2186 43 Week 2 Fantasy Football Studs Duds 31907200 Week 2 Fantasy Studs and Duds Week+2+Fantasy+Studs+and+Duds Fantasy Football

Sixteen different fantasy football tight ends found the end zone in Week 1.  Five of them scored two touchdowns.  Four of them recorded more than 95 receiving yards.  So, was that a Week 1 fluke or a trend in the making?


Well, through the end of the Week 2 late games, 12 fantasy tight ends had found the end zone.  Nine had scored double-digit fantasy points.  Four racked up 95 or more receiving yards.


You may think you have viable trade bait at tight end, but every owner is cashing in at the position. - Ryan Fowler
