Inside Injuries’ Week 2 Players on the Rise
After the catastrophic injury of Allen Robinson, the Jaguars will be looking for spots to spread the offense. The two likely targets to receive more looks are Allen Hurns and Marquise Lee. The two of which have had pretty similar numbers in their career. But our money is on Lee picking up more than his share of the slack as Blake Bortles continues to try to attack through the air. Hurns should also be considered for the same reason.
Another huge injury in the fantasy world was Cardinals’ RB David Johnson going down with a dislocated wrist. He is going to be out for almost the entirety of the season. There are a lot of options for the Cardinals to replace him, but none of them are tremendous. Andre Ellington is a decent threat for the passing game, and Kerwynn Williams is a speedy guy who could get some looks, but odds are that Johnson will jump to the top of the depth chart as the guy with the most experience and most balanced skill set.
Tarik Cohen had an explosive game against the Falcons this week in his NFL debut. He was one of the only offensive pieces working for the Bears, and it shows a promising future for the young back. Cohen especially excelled in the passing game, catching 8 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. If you haven’t watched the highlights yet, go do it now. He is explosive, elusive, and quick. He will be the perfect playmaker type for the Bears to use all over the field, including as Jordan Howard’s second fiddle.
