  • With Week 2 in the books, it’s time to take a look at the fantasy options who made their GMs scream with joy as they watched the points roll in.

    All stats are based on PPR scoring.


    Lamar Jackson, Ravens

    42.62 Fantasy Points, QB1

    21-for-29, 318 passing yards, three touchdowns, two interceptions, nine carries for 119 yards & one touchdown

    Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins

    38.86 Fantasy Points, QB2

    36-for-50, 469 passing yards, six touchdowns, two interceptions, one carries for one yard

    This Ravens-Dolphins game had a lot of fantasy points and the QB position was no exception as both QBs finished the week as the top-two at their position. While performances like this can be expected from Jackson as he was drafted as one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy drafts, Tua’s performance was a career-night. The Ravens injured secondary definitely helped the cause, but getting to throw the ball to Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle is a luxury that the youngster took advantage of. While performances like this can’t be expected regularly, Tua is definitely worth a roster spot in 12-team leagues with the new-look Dolphins offense.
