Authentic Youth Duncan Keith Jersey Lamar Miller remained Houston’s lead back in Week 2, but rookie D’Onta Foreman played a much bigger role in his second game. Miller racked up 18 carries on 46 snaps, whereas Foreman handled 12 carries on 16 snaps. This came after Miller out-snapped Foreman 56 to 2 and out-carried him 17 to 1 in Week 1. Miller struggled with efficiency last year and sports a 3.6 yards per carry early this season. He’ll continue to be involved on all three downs, which keeps him in the RB1 discussion, but Foreman’s role on early downs only figures to increase.
Authentic Youth Anton Khudobin Jersey Brandin Cooks, WR, Patriots: One of the most started wide receivers in fantasy in Week 2, as Cooks was active in 97.6 percent of ESPN leagues, Cooks was a total dud in his return to New Orleans on Sunday. He managed just 6.3 PPR fantasy points, his seventh-worst single-game output in 44 career contests. Cooks was targeted on just four of Brady’s 45 pass attempts, which seems more like an aberration than trend.
Kirk Cousins, QB, Redskins: Like Newton, Cousins’ 11.9 fantasy point output wasn’t catastrophic, but it still placed him outside the top 15 at his position in a week during which he was started in 53.4 percent of ESPN leagues. Worse yet: Cousins scored that on the heels of a 10.6 point opening week, and he has showed little in the way of chemistry with any of his wide receivers. Things should improve for him in Week 3, as he’ll battle the Raiders in a home game, but he’s going to need to rebound in a major way in that game in order to avoid sinking into the streaming tier.
