Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you in Week 2.


Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Rams

Only threw for 198 yards and a touchdown in the opener, but
avoided the interception. Washington is likely to put a big number on the board offensively. With Bradford playing catch up, he could post a solid number of his own.


Peyton Hillis, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

After a quiet debut (24 total yards) he has a chance to put up some decent numbers against the Bills, who let Shonn Greene go for 94 yards and a score in the opener.


Ben Tate, RB, Houston Texans

Tate only had six yards (28 total) in the opener. His game against Jacksonville has the makings of one that allows both Foster and Tate to provide fantasy goodies.


Andre Roberts, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Had 54 yards and a score last week. The TD came from Kolb who gets the start. The Cardinals are going to have to attempt a lot of passes against the Patriots so another decent game isn’t out of the question.


Alshon Jeffrey, WR, Chicago Bears

The Bears and Packers game will look like an air show. His size and speed, along with the attention that Marshall and Forte get, makes Jeffrey a decent bet to produce again.


Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings

I chose him last week as well and he did not disappoint (five catches for 67 yards). He’s big and athletic. Given the other options in the passing game, I’d be throwing to him too.


Cincinnati Bengals Defense

They looked terrible last week giving up 44 points to the Ravens. This week they are playing at home and against Cleveland, which should get them back on track.
