2018 NFL Week 2 Odds: Two Games for Fantasy Players to Watch

2018 NFL Week 2 Odds: If you play daily Fantasy Football, one tool to use is to look at Vegas odds.

If the Over/Under is high, it’s expected a lot of points will be scored. That can indicate players in this game have a lot of upside.

If the Over/Under is low, it’s expected that there won’t be a lot of points scored. That could indicate kickers are in for a big game or there are players to avoid.

Each week, I like to look at the game with the most expected points and the game with the least.

Let’s start with the lowest…

2018 NFL Week 2 Odds: Miami at New York

Over/Under: 43

Favorite: New York Jets -3

If you’ve followed along with my newsletter, you know I was a big fan of Kenny Stills before the start of the season.

Jarvis Landry left behind 112 receptions when he went to Cleveland, but that doesn’t mean they will automatically go to Danny Amendola or Albert Wilson.

Stills is still a deep threat, but like Mike Wallace with the Baltimore Ravens, he could be relied on more for shorter passes.

The 26-year old receiver caught a 75-yard touchdown, but he also had two catches for 10 yards each and one catch for 11 yards.

He could average five to six receptions per game, giving him a huge boost in PPR leagues.

For the rushing attack, Frank Gore is going to hurt Kenyan Drake’s Fantasy value this year.

It will be like Derrick Henry trying to leap past DeMarco Murray.

As long as Gore is effective, he’s going to get touches.

For the Jets, the player to watch here is Quincy Enunwa. He was targeted on 10 of Sam Darnold’s 21 passing attempts in Week 1, and Enunwa could be a PPR beast this year.

2018 NFL Week 2 Odds: Kansas City at Pittsburgh

Over/Under: 49.5

Favorite: Pittsburgh -5

If Ben Roethlisberger is dealing with an elbow issue, but he’s expected to play in Week 2.

However, if he needs to miss the game or is still hurt while he’s playing, look for a heavy dosage of James Conner.

For the Kansas City Chiefs, Travis Kelce should bounce back. He’s struggled against the Chargers, and he only caught one pass in Week 1. However, he was still targeted six times.

Also, expect to see Patrick Mahomes to look early and often in Tyreek Hill’s direction.
