Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins
Tua threw for 469 yards in a miracle comeback in week 2. Should we overreact to this heading into week 3? The answer is yes, but honestly it isn’t actually an overreaction. The Dolphins brought in the fastest receiver in all of football, adding Tyreke Hill to go along with Jaylen Waddle. Collectively the Dolphins arguably have the two most talented receivers in all of football.
Miami has a tough matchup with the powerful Buffalo Bills but after that matchup they have five straight awesome matchups. The Dolphins may have been a sleeping giant that was woken up by the abilities of their QB and receivers. SnagTua now and stash him as your future starter the rest of the season.
Garrett Wilson, WR, New York Jets
Remember Elijah Moore? Nope me either. It has been the Garrett Wilson show in New York. Joe Flacco targeted the rookie out of Ohio State 14 times on Sunday. Those targets were productive, Wilson finished with 114 yards and 2 touchdowns. His breakout performance wasn’t out of nowhere, he had 8 total targets in week one.
He is the one of only two receivers ever to put up 30 fantasy points in one of their first two games of the season in the last decade. Wilson was a top ten pick in the 2021 draft for a reason, right now he appears to be Joe Flacco’s favorite receiver.
Evan Engram, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
Every week I am going to keep trying to find a tightend worth the start. This week I focused on Jacksonville’s new tightend, the often disappointing Evan Engram. Engram is coming off of an 8 target day against the Colts. He hauled in 7 catches for 46 yards, in a PPR league a TE with those kinds of numbers going along with a snap share over 70% is a need.
The Jaguars have moved the ball around on offense but the upside of Engram is impossible to ignore.
