NFL Week 2 Daily Fantasy Surprises at Wide Receiver 0. .

Stefon Diggs ($5,100) – Minnesota Vikings

If you been following the Minnesota Vikings this season you will have noticed that Stefon Diggs has become a serious threat.  Diggs and Bradford found some serious chemistry on the field.  He caught 9 of 11 targets and netted 182 yards with one touchdown which totaled to 36.2 fantasy points.  He had the most points of any player this weekend.  His price remains steady at $5,100 for Week 3.  We will see if he can net his third 100 yard game of the season as the Vikings take on the Panthers who gave up 237 passing yards to the 49ers.

Mike Wallace ($4,700) – Baltimore Ravens

For the second week in a row Mike Wallace has made my list of surprises at the Wide Receiver position.  He was targeted the same number as Week 1 but he managed two touchdowns on 4 receptions and netted 41 yards which totaled to 20.1 fantasy points.  If he’s able to show that he is reliable to Flacco he could see more targets going in his direction.  His price has jumped up to $5,000 as he and the Ravens take on the Jaguars who gave up 388 passing yards to the Chargers.

Travis Benjamin ($4,400) – San Diego Chargers

He took advantage of his opportunity with Keenan Allen going down in Week 1 with a season-ending injury.  Benjamin was perfect in receptions going 6 for 6 and netted 115 yards with two touchdowns which totaled to 32.4 fantasy points.  Rivers should continue to build the chemistry with Benjamin in week 3 as the Chargers take on the Colts who gave up 253 passing yards to the Broncos.

Kelvin Benjamin ($6,500) – Carolina Panthers

If you have been following the Carolina Panthers you may have heard that his number of snaps played would decrease for Week 2.  Even with the decreased snap count he managed monstrous numbers.  He finished the game with 7 receptions off 9 targets and netted 108 yards with two touchdowns which totaled to 32.8 fantasy points.  We will see if he is able to take advantage of his opportunities on the field as the Panthers take on the Vikings who gave up 263 passing yards to the Packers.

Corey Coleman ($4,700) – Cleveland Browns

If you want a sleeper, keep an eye on Corey Coleman.  He was used in less than one percent of the entries in some contests on DraftKings.  He connected on 5 of 8 targets and netted 104 yards with two touchdowns which totaled to 30.4 fantasy points.  Unfortunately, McCown got injured in that game so his numbers may hurt in the future.  His price has increased to $5,300 as he and the Browns take on the Miami Dolphins who gave up 389 passing yards to the Patriots.
