Keep an Eye on Panthers Jarius Wright, Broncos Jake Butt

Keep an Eye on Panthers Jarius Wright, Broncos Jake Butt

A look at the players to keep an eye on in deeper leagues, though you don’t have to pick them all up just yet

Welcome back to The Watch List. If you checked in for Week One, I’m sure you paid closer attention to a few players. Will Dissly had another solid game and Corey Grant saw the action we had been waiting for with the absence of Leonard Fournette. Keep an eye out for the five players on my Watch List for Week Two:

Ito Smith, Atlanta Falcons RB

For as long as Devonta Freeman is sidelined, Ito Smith is going to have a role in the Falcons’ offense. Inside Injuries has Freeman listed as an elevated injury risk, which should hold him out for at least two weeks. Though the rookie did not see any action in Week One, the Falcons got him involved this past week against the Panthers. Smith was very productive with his 10 touches, piling up 54 total yards. There is a reason the Falcons spent a fourth round draft pick on Smith, as he could end up being Tevin Coleman’s successor if Coleman tests the market in the offseason. If you are looking for a running back in a deeper league, Smith is an add-now type of player with Freeman currently on the shelf.

Jarius Wright, Carolina Panthers WR

The former Vikings’ wideout Jarius Wright is no longer being overshadowed by the duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Though he spent his first six years with the Vikings, Wright is still just 28 years old. He seems to have a solidified role as the slot receiver in the Panthers’ offense, as he has accumulated 12 targets in his first two games. Wright was the Panthers third-most targeted player in Week Two behind Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess. We can expect Wright’s involvement to remain steady while Greg Olsen is out. Wright is owned in less than one percent of Yahoo leagues but should be considered in deeper PPR leagues.

Jake Butt, Denver Broncos TE

Finally at full health after missing his rookie season due to an ACL injury he suffered in his final college game, the Michigan product has earned the trust of quarterback Case Keenum. Jake Butt is the clear receiving option when it comes to the Broncos’ tight ends. He has hauled in six of his 10 targets in the first two weeks of the season for a total of 77 yards. Butt was projected to be a late first, early second round pick in 2017 before his injury senior year. The talent has always been there, now he finally has his opportunity. Butt is a player who fantasy owners need to keep an eye on as he is only owned in three percent of Yahoo leagues.

C.J. Prosise, Seattle Seahawks RB

If this is going to be a thing, shouldn’t the Seahawks just list C.J. Prosise as a WR? There have already been talks about the Seahawks moving Prosise to receiver, but the position on Yahoo won’t reflect that any time soon. We all know what he brings to the table in PPR, which is why his Week Two contributions should not go unnoticed. Prosise has a lot of upside in the passing game, and if he continues to see some work in this backfield, he might just be worth a roster spot down the road. Chris Carson did not receive a touch in the second half of the Seahawks’ Monday night loss to the Bears. If they are going to be down in games, expect Prosise to be the back on the field. He is not a player that needs to be added just yet, but keep a close eye on him moving forward.

Willie Snead, Baltimore Ravens WR

Welcome back to relevance, Willie Snead! After averaging just over 70 receptions in his first two seasons in the NFL, Snead fell off after returning from his three game suspension in 2017. He is now a part of the three-headed monster in the Ravens’ passing attack. Snead has turned his 14 targets through the first two weeks into nine grabs for 103 yards and a score. Snead has proven in the past that he can be a weekly contributor and it looks like he might be getting right back to where he was in 2016. He is currently owned in just three percent of Yahoo leagues but could be a nice option to stash in leagues where WR is thin.
