Fantasy Football Players to Buy Low Ahead of Week 2

A.J. Dillon, RB, Green Bay Packers

With Aaron Jones in the Green Bay offense along with A.J. Dillon, coming into the season it was hard to assess these Green Back running backs. But after Week 1, we can confidently say that Dillon will be allowed to have more production than Jones. Dillon was targeted six times in the passing game and got double the carries compared to Aaron Jones. Dillon isn't an RB1 but if he continues to see five targets a game and gets most of the carries in this Green Bay offense, he's a guy you're going to want on your fantasy team.

DeVonta Smith, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Hurts found A.J. Brown 10 times while DeVonta Smith lined up on the other side and didn't get a single catch.

I wouldn't start Smith just yet. We have to wait and see. But right now, we've got to stick with our gut from before the season. Smith was supposed to be a threat in this Philadelphia offense and should still see plenty of targets this season. If you can find an owner that has given up on Smith already, go and trade him for cheap.

DJ Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers

D.J. Moore was out-targeted by Robbie Anderson in Week 1 by Baker Mayfield. But I wouldn't read too much into that. Anderson has never been a consistent fantasy wideout. Moore is the guy in Carolina and will end up as the team leader in receptions and touchdowns (for wide receivers). Mayfield only completed 16 passes last week. That number will increase, and Moore's numbers will increase. Moore is a quality number two wide receiver if you can land him for a bench player.

Darnell Mooney, WR, Chicago Bears

Darnell Mooney was ninth in the NFL last year in targets. Justin Fields loves throwing the ball his way. However, in the first game of the season, Mooney had one catch. But let's not read too much into this. The weather conditions were awful, and Fields rarely dropped back to throw the ball. In better conditions, Mooney will be a high-volume receiver again. Go trade for Mooney if their owner shoved him on the bench.

CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys

The last time Lamb received 100 yards, Cooper Rush was his quarterback. That was Week 8 of last season. Maybe Rush will be what gets Lamb going. Ultimately, the Cowboys are going to be down a whole lot with how their offense is expected to play. But that also means more dropbacks and more garbage time. Lamb is the only real threat on the Cowboys in the passing game and will get looks from whoever the quarterback is.

Lamb is a great talent who deserves better. The Cowboys will get their best playmaker involved more, especially without Prescott. Lamb is a buy right now.
