Santonio Holmes – snaps went up from 45 in Week 1 to 69 on Sunday. He caught three of his seven targets for 51 yards. It’s not much, but it’s an improvement from a #1 receiver that averaged 15.1 ppg back in 2007, 14.7 ppg in 2009 and 13.5 ppg in 2010 with the Jets. He’s still recovering from a Lisfranc, nevertheless those desperate for receiving help should realize that if you’re looking for untarnished gold on the trash heap, you’re going to be looking for a very long time.

Ace Sanders – is worthy of mention even though Justin Blackmon’s return looms in Week 5. The rookie saw ten fewer snaps but hauled in five of Chad Henne’s seven passes thrown his way. Jacksonville figures to play catch-up in the second half most of the time and Saunders could get some garbage time touchdowns along with a few receptions as a flex play in 14-team leagues.

Ted Ginn Jr. – a journeyman whose career has been largely a disappointment, Ginn is merely a stash and hold at this point, but with eight targets and elite speed, he shouldn’t be completely ignored even if he’s only the #3 option in the Panthers’ passing game.

Eddie Royal – was ignored in all three of my FFPC Main Event Leagues as owners were assuming the former Bronco had more Kevin Ogletree than Laurent Robinson in his makeup. The diminutive wideout now has five touchdowns, matching his breakout 2008 rookie season total in just two weeks. I have no idea what to expect out of the 27-year-old 6th year veteran but he obviously has to be owned at this point. The problem is you’ll have to empty your wallet to get him now.

James Starks – gets the obligatory mention. After all, 20 carries for 132 yards and four catches for another 36 adds up to a terrific fantasy day. Of course, dollar days are now over and it might take a king’s ransom to secure his services. He’ll need an extended absence of Eddie Lacy plus he’ll have to find a way to stay healthy to have lasting value.

Jordan Todman – managed barely over a yard per rush on seven carries after Maurice jones-Drew left due to injury. The second-year back out of UConn runs a 4.40 40-yard dash and is stronger than average for a 5’9” 193-pound back. Denard Robinson has better moves but is still too raw to be given the bulk of the carries.

Donald Brown – received seven carries giving Ahmad Bradshaw a blow. For some odd reason, Bradshaw has perennially carried the injury risk label, this despite missing only eight of his last 82 games. Even so, Brown is the new handcuff for those that own the Colts’ starter or those looking for a desperation flex option with upside.

Philip Rivers - a top-5 quarterback through Week 2. Matt Schaub, Eli Manning and Sam Bradford are all in the top-10. It’s a small sample size, and yet illustrates the incredible volatility we see week in and week out, year in and year out. These things go in cycles, and there is so much that goes into quarterback fantasy points from week to week and individual talent is only a small component.

Felix Jones – got the carries when Isaac Redman missed most of the first half. The Steelers RB stable is one to avoid if possible, but a starter is a starter and it appears that Jones is “next man up” if Redman misses time.

Flash in the pan – Jerome Simpson, Harry Douglass.

As the Harry Douglas supporter in the crowd I am going to file the minority report - Like many others I added Douglas after Week 1 when he had four receptions on six targets for 93 yards. In Week 2 we knew that even if he suited up Roddy White wouldn't be a big part of the game plan and sure enough he was targeted only three times and had three receptions for 21 yards. BUT Douglas was only targeted five times and caught four of those for 43 yards. So he was effective but not thrown to enough because Julio Jones got a whopping fourteen targets and reeled in eleven of them. In Week 3 however there will be no Steven Jackson so IF the Dolphins cover Julio better on their yard, Douglas may be more involved. As always it depends on your other options but I think he still has value in larger leagues or on standby on your rosters.
