Cheat Sheet:

Core Breakdown:

Trey Lance, QB

Lance should see a pretty good amount of playing time in this game. In his preseason debut he threw for 128 yards and 1 TD on 14 pass attempts.

Kyle Lauletta, QB

With Mayfield still not playing in preseason week 2, Lauletta looks like a solid option once again at QB. He played 46 snaps and threw for 212 yards and 2 TD’s. He should get plenty of run once again and looks like a top QB option.

Demetric Felton, RB

Felton is a dynamic receiving back for the Browns who played 26 snaps in week 1, ran 20 routes and 4 catches for 44 yards on 6 targets. This type of receiving opportunity is hard to come by at the RB position and with DraftKings having PPR scoring, there is massive upside. I love Felton here.

D'Ernest Johnson, RB

Sticking with the Cleveland backfield, another guy I’m high on is D’Ernest Johnson. He’s also getting a lot of opportunities in the passing game, he managed 2 catches for 28 yards on 3 targets and 17 routes ran. He also had 5 carries for 14 yards. I think you can play both Felton & Johnson on the same team.

Ja'Marcus Bradley, WR

Bradley is a guy who got a ton of opportunity in week 1 and should see more of the same in week 2. He played 46 snaps, 28 routes ran and managed 2 catches for 38 yards.

Jauan Jennings, WR

Jennings is a guy who’s getting involved in various ways so far in the preseason. In game 1 he played a total of 38 snaps, had 2 rushing attempts for 23 yards and caught 1 of his 2 targets for 26 yards on a total of 23 routes ran. This is a ton of opportunity and I’m a big fan of him again this week.

David Stills, WR

Stills is another guy who had a lot of opportunity in preseason week 1. He played 32 snaps, ran 21 routes and had 5 targets. He had 3 catches for 49 yards. I’m high on him again in week 2.

Donald Parham, TE

Parham ran 18 routes and managed to catch both of his 2 targets for 31 yards. He should get plenty of opportunity again in this one and he’s a top TE play on this 2-game slate.

Jordan Franks, TE

Franks played a massive 39 snaps in week 1 and ran 23 routes. He had 2 catches for 12 yards on 4 targets. He’s another viable TE due to a lot of opportunity on a 2-game slate.
