After drawing just two targets during the Carolina Panthers’ week one win, Devin Funchess saw six targets in Week 2. The rise in targets is almost definitely attributable to Greg Olsen leaving the game early in the first quarter with a foot injury as all of Funchess’ targets subsequent to the injury. The best part of those targets is the depth at which they were thrown as five of those six targets came at least 13 yards down the field.
The depth of those targets is sweet, but this week’s opponent is sweeter. The New Orleans Saints’ passing defense can only be described as nonexistent. After finishing dead last in the league last year by allowing 274 passing yards per game, they’ve actually found a way to make that seem respectable as they’ve allowed a whopping 389 passing yards per game this year. -K.D.
Afforded 22 touches in place of an ailing Rob Kelley last week, Perine is a potential waiver warrior given he’s available in well over 90 percent of ESPN leagues and yet could consume the valuable majority of early-down work for the Redskins this week. You might not know how to properly pronounce his name, but don’t let that stop you from considering Perine against an Oakland front that has yielded the ninth-most yards to tailbacks since the second half of last season. -J.M.

In Week 1, Posting 100 yards and a touchdown as a rusher while adding three receptions for 24 yards — all against a Houston defense that expected a heavy dose of Fournette — should inspire confidence that he can produce on a weekly basis. On paper, the Titans’ defense presents less of a threat than that of the Texans, so Fournette should be in for another good week. — Stephania Bell
