Jimmy Garoppolo, Patriots
Jimmy left some plays on the field last week. Jimmy needs to improve. Jimmy will see the bulk of the snaps once again. Jimmy should be on your preseason DFS team.
Trevone Boykin, Seahawks
Boykin attempted 26 passes and ran three times on his way to over 200 total yards and a touchdown against Kansas City last week. He should see a large chunk of time against the Vikings this week, as he didn't look great last week despite the numbers and the Seahawks are hoping he can be the backup.
Brett Hundley, Packers
Hundley is fighting for the backup job in Green Bay, but hurt his ankle and couldn't play in the first preseason game. He's back to practicing and should be able to go on Thursday against the Raiders. And since he missed last week, Green Bay should give him plenty of time to prove himself this week.
Landry Jones, Steelers
Bruce Gradkowski tore his hamstring and Ben Roethlisberger won't play, so that leaves Jones to take on the Eagles' weak secondary.
Christine Michael, Seahawks
Michael looked great in his first preseason game and has made strides to be Thomas Rawls' backup, but the Seahawks do want to continue to see consistency from him, and with no Rawls or C.J. Prosise, I expect we'll see a lot of Michael once again.
Zach Zenner, Lions
Zenner rushed seven times for 24 yards and caught three passes for 32 yards against Pittsburgh last week, and will again be used plenty in Week 2 of the preseason. He is in the lead for the No. 3 running back job, but still needs to continue to play well to keep Steven Ridley at bay.
Daryl Richardson, Steelers
Richardson ran the ball 11 times for 44 yards and caught two passes 16 more yards last week, and appears to be working his way into the backup role for the first four weeks of the regular season while Le'Veon Bell is suspended. The Steelers should continue to give him work to see if he can repeat his solid performance to become the backup.
DeAndre Washington, Raiders
Washington ran eight times for 43 yards and caught one pass for 32 yards against Arizona in the Raiders' first preseason game. He's still officially No. 3 on the depth chart, but Oakland is just making him do the work to get to that No. 2 spot, and so far so good. I expect another high-usage game for him this week.
Terrell Watson, Browns
The Browns are looking for the backup to their running back committee, and Watson knows Hue Jackson's offense better than the other backs on the team. Cleveland will give him every chance to win the job.
Terrelle Pryor, Browns
Pryor is an amazing athlete and is starting to look like he could be a very good receiver, but he needs all the snaps he can get. I expect we see him quite a bit against the Falcons on Thursday night.
Sammie Coates, Steelers
Coates did nothing well last week, grabbing 3-of-4 targets for 18 yards and a fumble. That should motivate him this week, as he still has a shot at beating Markus Wheaton out on the depth cart.
Ty Montgomery, Packers
The Packers desperately need a receiver to step up and take the No. 3 spot, and Montgomery has a shot at it now that he's off the PUP list. I'd check with the Green Bay beat reporters on twitter before the game starts to make sure he is playing, but if he is, I think the Packers will give him a long look.
Laquon Treadwell, Vikings
Treadwell caught 4-of-5 targets for 41 yards against Cincinnati last week, but he is still behind Charles Johnson on the depth chart. Treadwell will again get snaps to prove that he is ready to start.
Zach Ertz, Eagles
Ertz played half of the game in Week 1 of the preseason, and the starters are supposed to play at least a quarter this week for Philadelphia compared to one drive last week. The Eagles want to involve the tight ends more in the offense this year, so it appears Ertz is going to receive more run than the other starters.
Martellus Bennett, Patriots
Rob Gronkowski will be out again most likely, which should give Bennett a few extra looks to start the game. Bennett also has a pretty big chip on his shoulder when it comes to the Bears, as seen in practices this week, and I expect him to be at his best.
Honestly Walt, with the exception of the Malcolm Smith deal, the 49ers have done a really good job in free agency, there is nothing wrong either the Kerley or Mitchell deals. I think they were right in line for who the players are. Denver offered Mitchell a deal worth slightly less. As a diehard 49er fan, a B is more in line with the correct grade.
