Fantasy Football 2015: Week 2 Sleeper Picks
Taking a Look at the Week 2 Sleeper Pickups in Fantasy
September 18, 2015
It’s Friday, and Week 2 in the fantasy football season is already upon us. We owners have some tough decisions to make during the upcoming weekend, so with that in mind let’s take a moment to check out some of the sleeper and waiver wire options trending out there.
Brandon Coleman, WR, New Orleans Saints: Coleman had a nice game in Arizona during Week 1, logging four grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown in a New Orleans loss. He was targeted seven times.
Coleman gets a pretty easy matchup at home against Tampa Bay this weekend and shouldn’t have too much trouble finding holes in their secondary.

Tavon Austin, WR, St. Louis Rams: If your league counts return yards, you’re probably already using Austin. He bagged a nice punt return score in the opener, along with 17 yards and a score on the ground.
Austin and the Rams are going against a sketchy Redskins team this week, and the team seems committed to working him into the game plan from a few different areas. If he can break one this week he’ll be a nice fantasy find.
Lance Dunbar, RB, Dallas Cowboys: Dunbar factored mightily into the Cowboys’ passing attack in Week 1, logging grabs on each of his eight targets for 70 yards.
With the fallout from the Dez Bryant injury, anyone involved in the Cowboys passing game gets a fantasy upgrade. That includes Dunbar, who should be out there on most passing downs and will get work against Philly.
David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals: If you’re the gambling type, try the “other” Johnson in Arizona. He got just one touch on five snaps in the opener, but turned it into a 55-yard TD catch.
Chris Johnson is the lead back with Andre Ellington banged up, but David Johnson looks like a potential sleeper score this week against a crummy Bears defense. We’ll see if he can bag another big play.
Eric Ebron, TE, Detroit Lions: Let’s finish up with Ebron, who came up with a promising Week 1 in San Diego. He was targeted five times in that one, posting four receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown.
The Detroit offense certainly had some struggles this past week, but should get moving a little better in Minnesota. He’s a low-end fantasy start that could pay off if he can get into the end zone again.
