Potential Studs for Preseason Week 2

The NFL preseason week 2 kickoffs this weekend and FantasyDraft.com has decided to show you some love by offering a $50,000 FREEROLL. That’s right I said FREE!!! We all like free things (at least I do), so I’ll be playing in the Freeroll and looking to win of course. However, me being the kind, caring, loving person that I am, I’ve decided to share some of my Studs plays for this weekend to help you set your lineup.

David Cobb-RB Tennessee Titans – I loved Cobb coming out of the University of Minnesota in this year’s draft as a sleeper RB. Cobb served notice in week 1 to the NFL not to sleep on him with 53 yards on 11 carries. I like Cobb so much that I wouldn’t be surprised in he’s the Titans opening day starter at RB week 1 of the regular season. This hard-charging RB wants to build off last week’s performance against the Rams defense.

Brock Osweiler-QB Denver Broncos – Osweiler has been glued to the bench since being drafted by Denver in the 2nd round of the 2012 because of one Peyton Manning. Osweiler got a chance to show his stuff last week in a start against the Seattle Seahawks on the road no less. Osweiler, delivered a sparkling performance no less, the 6’8” Osweiler stood tall in the pocket (no pun intended) and completed 15 of 20 passes for 151 yards and a TD. Even if Manning starts the game against the Texans this weekend look for Osweiler to get plenty of action.

Nelson Agholor-WR Philadelphia Eagles – Amari Cooper is considered the best route runner of the rookie wide receivers this year. Well the 2nd best guy is Agholor, and he did nothing to dispel that ranking in week 1 of the preseason. Agholor was explosive after the catch and hauled in a 34 TD pass to boot. Agholor will get plenty of opportunities to shine in Chip Kelly’s Spread offense. Agholor has the ability to take a short pass to the house any given time.

MyCole Pruitt-TE Minnesota Vikings – Norv Turner the offensive coordinator of the Vikings loves to get the ball to his TE’s. Pruitt gives Turner and the Vikings another athletic playmaking TE to showcase along with Kyle Rudolph in their offense. Pruitt led all Division 1 TE’s in receptions, yards, and TD’s a season ago with 81 rec. 861 yards, and 13 td’s. Pruitt had to feel like he was still at Southern Illinois last week against the Pittsburg Steelers because he continued to produce to the tune of 51 receiving yards and a TD. Pruitt figures to continue to be targeting when the Vikings face the Raiders this weekend.

Jimmy Clausen-QB Chicago Bears – Clausen looked very good in Chicago’s new offense week 1 against Miami. I liked the decisions that he made with the football, I also anticipate him playing even better against to Colts defense that doesn’t have much of a pass rush.

Other Studs: Davante Adams-WR Green Bay; Zach Mettenberger-QB Tennessee; Kyle Rudolph-TE Minnesotta; Dallas Cowboys-Defense; Carolina Panthers-Defense
