  • Hakeem Nicks catches one pass in Week 2
    Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for minus-four yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: He was targeted three times on the night. Nicks' best opportunity came on an end-zone look, but it was a bit overthrown in good coverage. He's seen eight targets through two games with the Colts, and is no more than a WR4/5. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwayne Allen doesn't catch pass in Week 2
    Dwayne Allen didn't catch a pass in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: Allen saw just one target on the night, but he blocked his butt off in the run game. He lost out to third-string TE Jack Doyle on a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. OC Pep Hamilton and the coaches simply don't realize Allen's skill level as an all-around tight end. He'll get the Jaguars in Week 3. Rotoworld.com

    Brent Celek dropped his lone target in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: It would have gone for an easy one-yard touchdown, but the ball clanked right off Celek's fingers. He's only in the lineup thanks to his willingness to block. Rotoworld.com

    Donte Moncrief caught his lone target for 16 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: It was Moncrief's first NFL catch. He's the clear No. 4 receiver in Indy, but won't play a large role unless OC Pep Hamilton reluctantly opens up the offense or gets fired. Rotoworld.com

    Jordan Matthews caught 1-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: Matthews played in three-wide sets out of the slot, as expected. On his lone catch, Matthews caught an earful from coach Chip Kelly for not getting out of bounds. As the fifth or sixth option in the passing game, Matthews isn't start-able in fantasy. He won't have value unless there are injuries in Philadelphia. Rotoworld.com

    Riley Cooper caught one pass for eight yards in the Eagles' Monday night, Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: Cooper was targeted just three times on the night; he dropped one deep ball in the end zone and later drew a pass interference call against Vontae Davis in the end zone to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard score. Cooper saw some good looks, but didn't do anything with them. He's a touchdown-dependent WR4. Rotoworld.com

    T.Y. Hilton caught six passes for 65 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

    Advice: Hilton saw a team-high ten targets. He dropped the first pass of the game, and was targeted on Andrew Luck's late-fourth quarter interception. Hilton was mugged on the play by Eagles slot CB Brandon Boykin and was dragged to the turf. Hilton has seen a healthy 21 targets through two games, but has yet to break a big play. He has another favorable matchup in Week 3 at the Jaguars. Rotoworld.com

  • Maclin catches touchdown in Week 2 win
    Jeremy Maclin caught four passes for 45 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 2 win over the Colts.

    Advice: Maclin was targeted a game-high 11 times one week after seeing ten targets. He's clearly drawing the eye of Nick Foles, but Foles is missing his No. 1 receiver too often. Foles missed Maclin for a wide-open touchdown in Week 1, and also overshot him on Monday night in the end zone. If Foles can find his 2013 form, Maclin will flirt with high-end WR2 production as this target rate. He has another favorable matchup at home against Redskins in Week 3. Rotoworld.com

    Reggie Wayne caught three passes for 28 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

    Advice: Wayne was targeted seven times on the night, but couldn't shake free for any big gains. Andrew Luck also couldn't complete any passes downfield with OC Pep Hamilton dialing up run play after run play mixed in with short throwing plays. Wayne should rebound next week against Jacksonville. He's a WR3/4. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Ertz catches four balls for 81 yards
    Zach Ertz caught 4-of-6 targets for 81 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night.

    Advice: Outside of Darren Sproles, Ertz was the Eagles' leading receiver. But after playing 60 percent of the snaps in Week 1, we'd bet that number dipped in Week 2. He just wasn't on the field enough despite making highlight-reel catches when he did touch the ball. Ertz had a big catch on a 3rd-and-11 when he went up and got the ball to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard touchdown. He's a back-end TE1 thanks to his playmaking ability, but we want to see more usage.

  • Bradshaw outplays TRich, scores twice in loss
    Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 70 yards on 13 carries and caught five passes for 26 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's Week 2 loss to the Colts.

    Advice: Bradshaw outplayed Trent Richardson for the second consecutive game to open the season. Bradshaw took his first carry of the game 29 yards up the left side. It looked like he was shot out of a cannon. Bradshaw legitimately looks like he's been reborn, and he's playing in all red-zone and passing situations, as evidenced by his one-yard and seven-yard scores. He's clearly the superior talent in the Colts' backfield, but we tend to think the Indianapolis coaching staff is too stubborn to realize it. That, or they'll wake up when it's too late.

  • Shady McCoy finds end zone in MNF win
    LeSean McCoy rushed for 79 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night, adding four catches for an additional 23 yards.

    Advice: McCoy's 102 total yards go largely unnoticed because of Darren Sproles' 178 yards and one score on 11 touches. Still, McCoy had a fine night against a pitiful defense. He didn't break off many big gainers, but McCoy was steady and showed off his video game-like moves on a couple occasions. He pounded his touchdown in from one yard away after Riley Cooper drew a DPI call in the end zone. Sproles' heavier load than expected is a bit of a buzzkill for McCoy owners, but Shady is still producing fine numbers and getting his touches. The Redskins are up next for the Eagles. McCoy will be a top-three option at running back. Rotoworld.com

    Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan suffered a mid-foot sprain in Sunday's loss.

    Advice: He is being "evaluated." Foot injuries are among the trickiest injuries for football players to come back from, especially receivers. Jernigan should be considered doubtful for Week 3, and is likely staring at a multi-week absence. Jernigan has six catches for 40 yards through the Giants' first two games. Rotoworld.com

    Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Jernigan was targeted seven times in the Giants' opener, parlaying them into 25 yards. It's probably no coincidence that New York's offense actually appeared functional on Sunday with Jernigan's role reduced. Despite playing 70-plus percent of the Giants' offensive snaps, Jernigan has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Jernigan was targeted seven times, one behind Larry Donnell for the team lead. Jernigan is an average talent with little upside. He failed to get his head around on a couple of passes his direction and had some communication issues with Eli Manning. Jernigan is waiver-wire fodder in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Jeremy Maclin played 80-of-87 (92 percent) of the offensive snaps in Philadelphia's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: It was Maclin's first regular season game since tearing his ACL. He wasn't limited at all, and was clearly the Eagles' No. 1 receiver. Maclin saw ten targets in the passing game, securing four for 97 yards and a score, but the day could have been much bigger if Nick Foles hadn't missed an open Maclin on a couple occasions. There's WR2 upside here in Philadelphia's high-octane offense. Rotoworld.com

    Zach Ertz played 52-of-87 (60 percent) of the offensive snaps in the Eagles' Week 1 win over Jacksonville.

    Advice: Ertz started in the slot, but moved around the formation. He saw just five targets, but turned them into three catches for 77 yards and one touchdown. The Jaguars were one of the worst teams when it came to defending tight ends in 2013, but Ertz is a red-zone dominator who has six touchdowns in his last ten games. Playing 60 percent of the snaps is an increase on his 41-percent usage as a rookie. Fire Ertz up as a TE1 for Week 2 against the Colts. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Fleener was targeted more than Dwayne Allen, but saw fewer snaps. He couldn't come down with his lone red-zone target and dropped a pass that led to an interception in the fourth quarter.

    Hakeem Nicks had five catches for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: Nicks was an afterthought behind Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton, and may not be higher than the No. 4 option. He got stopped on the one-yard line on a play that cost the Colts a touchdown in the third quarter, but later managed a nine-yard score. Nicks did manage to secure all five of his targets from Andrew Luck. He isn't more than a WR4 for Week 2. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Allen started over Coby Fleener, but both got heavy snaps in two-tight end formations. Fleener finished with more targets (8), but was less effective and struggled with drops. Allen took an out route 41 yards down the sideline for his touchdown. He's on the TE2 radar and is worth a look on waivers. Allen is the Colts' top red-zone threat and has potential to be the No. 3 option in the pass game, ahead of Hakeem Nicks. Rotoworld.com

Hilton struggled with drops, including two on consecutive plays in the fourth quarter.

    Advice: Maclin was on his way to an extremely disappointing day until lighting struck midway through the fourth quarter. The Jaguars blew a coverage, with safety Chris Prosinski biting on a play-fake and leaving Maclin literally wide open to walk in for a 68-yard score. The good news is Maclin's surgically-repaired knee looked fine and he led a committee passing attack with 10 targets. He'll be a solid WR3 against the Colts in Week 2. Rotoworld.com

    LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 74 yards and caught six passes for 41 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: Surprisingly, McCoy lost a lot of inside running duties to Darren Sproles (11 carries). That included a fourth-and-1 play in which Sproles burst through the middle of the line and ran for a 49-yard score. We can't complain though, as McCoy ended up with a healthy 27 touches and remained a major part of the check-down game. He remains a good bet to finish the year with 300 carries, and will be an elite RB1 against the Colts in Week 2. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The breakout is on. Ertz only saw five targets in a predictably "spread the wealth" passing attack, but he dominated the seam while lining up both as an in-line tight end and in the slot. Most importantly, he got some reps in "11" personnel while Brent Celek stood on the sideline -- and scored his touchdown out of that formation. A red-zone dominator with gobs of upside, Ertz will be a fine TE1 at Indy next week. Rotoworld.com
