5 fantasy stats to know from Week 2
It’s easy to look at the box scores and make conclusions about fantasy performance, but the numbers often don’t tell the whole story. Each week, I’ll dig a little deeper and pull out some need-to-know stats that will help you dominate your league.
1. Dion Lewis averaged 3.7 yards after contact per attempt.
Lewis only had seven totes against the Bills, but his yards after contact shows just how well he fared as a runner. He also tied with Shane Vereen as the most targeted receiver on Sunday with eight targets. Perhaps most importantly, Lewis played 73 snaps, while LeGarrette Blount was on the field for just seven snaps. While Lewis isn’t likely to produce like this every week, his play suggests some staying power. He remains a fantasy hold going forward.
