Here are the four stars we see getting touchdowns this week:
Seahawks @ Steelers, FOX, 1:00 PM ET:
James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers @ -125
The Pittsburgh Steelers were abysmal in Week 1 against the New England Patriots.
The Steelers only managed to put up three points in a 30-point loss to the defending Super Bowl champions.
Who’s going to score the first touchdown of the NFL season for the Steelers? I’m going to say it’s running back James Conner.
As a team, the Steelers only had 32 rushing yards on 13 carries, which is a 2.5 yards per rush average. Conner had 10 carries for 21 yards and had four catches for 44 yards in the game against New England.
Last week, the Seahawks allowed 418 passing yards to Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, so I expect Ben Roethlisberger and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to really battle it out in this Week 2 matchup.
Conner will find the endzone, either rushing or receiving, in this football game against the Seahawks.
Patriots @ Dolphins, CBS, 1:00 PM ET:
Antonio Brown, WR, New England Patriots @ +120
The New England Patriots are 18-point favorites on the road in this Week 2 matchup against the Miami Dolphins, so I expect a lot of scoring from New England.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-3 beatdown of the Steelers in Week 1.
Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett had four catches for 95 yards and two scores, Julian Edelman had six catches for 83 yards and Josh Gordon took in three receptions for 73 yards and one touchdown.
Enter Antonio Brown. After a drama-filled training camp leading up to the season, Brown has ended up on the team that he wanted to be a part of all along.
The Miami Dolphins are probably the worst team in the NFL, and the New England Patriots are the best team in football.
Brown has arguably been the best wide out in football the last five years. He will score in this one.
Bills @ Giants, CBS, 1:00 PM ET:
Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants @ -200
The New York Giants put up 17 points against the Dallas Cowboys in a Week 1 loss.
The two touchdowns for the Giants? Tight end Evan Engram and running back… Wayne Gallman?
This week will belong to superstar halfback Saquon Barkley.
Make no doubt about it, Barkley had a fantastic game in Week 1 with the limited touches he had.
Barkley had 120 rushing yards on only 11 carries, which included a 59-yard run early in the first quarter, and he had four catches for 19 yards. The only stat missing from Barkley’s performance was a touchdown.
Lock it in. Barkley scores in Week 2 against the visiting Buffalo Bills.
Eagles @ Falcons, NBC, 8:20 PM ET:
Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia Eagles @ +110
The Philadelphia Eagles had a field day in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins.
Quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns in a 32-27 victory over Washington.
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson had eight receptions for 154 yards and two touchdowns of 53 and 51 yards. Alshon Jeffery, who had five catches for 49 yards and one score, also joined in on the fun.
The one receiving option who didn’t score? Tight end Zach Ertz.
Ertz had five receptions for 54 yards with a 26-yard catch. Expect Wentz to look to his superstar tight end early and often in a game which can easily turn into a shoot-out on Sunday night in Atlanta.
