Don’t sleep on Frohnapfel just because the Minutemen didn’t play in Week 1. The senior quarterback is back after a late-season injury last year and he’s been dealt a nice matchup against the Buffaloes in Week 2.
Thomas Sirk, QB-Duke vs NC Central
We already knew that Sirk could get it done on the ground, and after last week’s Week 1 win at Tulane, he appears to be ready to do it through the air too.
Elijah Hood, RB-North Carolina vs NC A&T
Hood rushed for 138 yards on only twelve carries last week against South Carolina and we’re pretty sure HC Larry Fedora doesn’t want to answer more questions about the utilization of his sophomore running back.
Patrick Skov, RB-Georgia Tec vs Tulane
Skov didn’t get a ton of work last week in a game against Alcorn State that was out of hand pretty early. Expect the senior B-back to get more carries in a Week 2 matchup at home against Tulane.
Dwayne Washington, RB-Washington vs Sacramento State
The Huskies couldn’t get much done on the ground last week in the season opener at Boise State, so look for a lot of Washington early and often against Sacramento State.
Ron Johnson, RB-Connecticut vs Army
Johnson logged 23 carries last week in the season opener against Villanova and the sophomore back should get another 20-plus carries against an Army defense that was gashed for 445 yards by Fordham in Week 1.
Jhurell Pressley, RB-New Mexico vs Tulsa
Pressley only carried the ball ten times in last week’s 66-0 win over Mississippi Valley State, but expect that number to double in Week 2 when the Lobos host Tulsa.
Dare Ogunbowale, RB-Wisconsin vs Miami (OH)
Even if Corey Clement decides to play this week against Miami (OH), Ogunbowale should still get a lot of work in a game that doesn’t figure to be highly contested.
Courtland Sutton, WR-SMU vs North Texas
Sutton was one of our 2015 Freshmen to Watch and Sleeper Receivers, and after catching two touchdowns in the season opener against Baylor, we’re going to ride the 6-4 receiver in Week 2 at home against North Texas.
Ian Sadler, WR-Texas Tech vs UTEP
If quarterback Pat Mahomes is going to put the ball in the air 50-plus times a game, Sadler will definitely be a fantasy factor at one of the inside receiver positions along with Jakeem Grant.
Demarcus Ayers, WR-Houston at Louisville
Ayers caught ten passes for 121 yards, gained 44 yards on four rushing attempts, and added another 25 yards on punt returns in Week 1. His versatility should allow for enough touches in a Week 2 game at Louisville to warrant a start as a WR2, WR3, or FLEX option.
Chuckie Keeton, QB-Utah State & Travis Wilson, QB-Utah Utah State at Utah
Keeton will be without WR Hunter Sharp (suspension) and possibly Brandon Swindall (hamstring-questionable), which will certainly limit his options in the passing game, while the Utes figure to lean heavily on RB Devontae Booker.
Fredi Knighten, QB & Michael Gordon, RB-Arkansas St vs Missouri
For the second consecutive week, we recommend benching this QB/RB duo, but it’s clear sailing after this week’s matchup against Missouri.
Seth Collins, QB-Oregon State at Michigan
It’s easy to get excited about the freshman quarterback after his 152-yard rushing performance in Week 1, but keep in mind that the Beavers hosted Weber State and this week’s matchup at Michigan will be much tougher.
Blake Kemp, QB-East Carolina at Florida
As long as Kemp keeps the job as the Pirates No. 1 quarterback, he’ll certainly be a fantasy factor in 2015, but a Week 2 matchup in The Swamp is too risky.
Marlon Mack, RB-South Florida @ Florida State
Mack is always one play away from taking it the distance, but those opportunities should be far a few between this weekend in Tallahassee.
Corey Clement, RB-Wisconsin v Miami (OH)
Clement is battling a groin issue and we can’t see the Badgers putting him in harm’s way against an inferior opponent when they need him ready for the B1G season.
Ralph Webb, RB-Vanderbilt vs Georgia
The Commodores need Webb to be a factor if they are to have a shot at upsetting the Bulldogs, but Vandy doesn’t have the passing game to keep Georgia from stacking the box.
Russell Hansbrough, RB-Missouri at Arkansas State
The Tigers don’t need Hansbrough this weekend to survive a trip to Jonesboro, so don’t expect the senior running back to do much on his sprained ankle.
Ashton Shumpert, RB-Mississippi State vs LSU
Expect the Tigers to focus their attention on the Bulldogs’ running game and force QB Dak Prescott to beat them in the air.
William Stanback, RB-Central Florida at Stanford
The Knights couldn’t get the running game going last week against FIU, so don’t expect much to change this week at Stanford.
