Cheat Sheet:

Core Breakdown:

Tyler Huntley, QB

With Lamar Jackson likely to only play 1-2 drives (if at all) and Trace McSorley done for the preseason Tyler Huntley should see a ton of playing time in this game. He’s a mobile QB who had 43 yards and 1 TD on the ground to go with 75 passing yards in the first preseason game. I like him a lot here.

Sam Ehlinger, QB

Ehlinger is expected to start and play the full first half for the Colts. He had 155 passing yards, 1 INT and 30 rushing yards in the first preseason game. Another one of my favorite QB’s on the slate due to rushing upside.

Ke'Shawn Vaughn, RB

Vaughn should continue seeing a lot of run in week 2 just like he did in week 1. He had 11 carries for 27 yards and 1 TD to go along with 2 catches and 10 receiving yards. He’s getting more opportunity than most backs will in the preseason so I like him again in this one.

Trey Ragas, RB

The undrafted rookie had huge usage in week 1 of the preseason. He carried the ball 13 times for 62 yards and a TD and also had 3 catches for 20 yards. He should be a big part of the gameplan in week 2 as well.

AJ Rose Jr., RB

Rose had ore carries than anyone in the preseason last week, getting 25 carries for 100 yards. He should have high ownership in his one.

Ty'Son Williams, RB

Williams is another back who had a ton of usage in week one an should see more of the same in week 2. He had 10 carries for 41 yards and caught 5 passes for 23 yards on 20 routes run. This amount of opportunity in the passing game is really hard to fade.

Mike Strachan, WR

Strachan saw good run in week 1 and should once again here in week 2. He had 3 catches for 57 yards on 5 targets.

Dezmon Patmon, WR

Patmon played a massive 52 snaps in week 1. He had 5 catches for 49 yards on 6 targets and 28 routes run. He’s getting a ton of opportunity for the preseason.

Tanner Hudson, TE

Hudson had 4 catches for 48 yards in the first preseason game. He should continue seeing plenty of playing time so I like going right back to him again in week 2.

Jacob Harris, TE

Harris also had a lot of opportunity in week 1, catching 4 of 7 targets for 43 yards. He’s a very athletic WR¬† who converted to TE.
