Devin Singletary, RB, Dawson Knox, TE, BUF - It’s clear that the Bills' offense is going to be one of the best offenses in the league (again), if not the best. Singletary was the best back in the Bills backfield in Week 1. James Cook is one fumble away from the doghouse, and Zack Moss looks slow and too deliberate as a runner and receiver. Just like last year, the Bills will eventually find their way back to featuring Singletary. Knox wasn’t very involved in the Week 1 passing game, but that can change in any given week. Tight end is so barren right now that you should be fine with enduring the downs to get the ups - and they will come after the Bills showed Knox is a part of their long-term plans with a lucrative extension right before the season.
Kyle Philips, WR, TEN - Philips landing on the injury report on Thursday, missing time with a shoulder issue, will throw a monkey wrench into his ascentj. But it looks like he could be Ryan Tannehill’s favorite receiver from day one. Derrick Henry isn’t the unstoppable force he has been in years past, and the Titans could be forced to throw more when teams sell out to take him away and force Tannehill to throw. That’s when Philips can make money for your PPR teams.
Greg Dortch, WR, ARI - Dortch wasn’t expected to play a role in the offense after a great summer because Rondale Moore was healthy enough to practice heading into Week 1. Then Moore hurt his hamstring and he missed Week 1. Dortch was the team’s leading receiver. He should have the slot role again in Week 2 as Moore doesn’t look close to playing. A.J. Green probably doesn’t deserve a big role at this point, so Dortch might find a way to stay on the field even when Moore is healthy. He’s only 24, so Dortch’s best football is ahead of him.
Allen Robinson, WR, LAR - This is elementary, but throw out a trade offer anyway. Robinson did not look washed up, getting open downfield many times. But the Rams didn’t have time to throw downfield, partly because of the Bills' relentless rush and partly because their offensive line misses Andrew Whitworth, among others. The team did lose Brian Allen, another offensive line starter, for 2-4 weeks, but Matthew Stafford acknowledged that the zone coverage helped take Robinson out in Week 1, so expect the receiver’s talent to come to the surface sooner or later.
