Week 2: Pickups of the Week
A utility knife player who was too often kept in the drawer during the Todd Haley days, McCluster looked sharp and figured prominently in new coordinator Brian Daboll's offense. Though he didn't take any handoffs, McCluster was the top receiving target for the Chiefs on Sunday. His skills have never been in question, it was just a matter of getting the ball in his hands. With a new lease on life and a more clearly defined offensive role, he could be in line for a breakthrough season.MyFantasyLeague availability: 98%
Ogletree recorded the first two touchdowns of his NFL career last Wednesday during a performance that will almost certainly make the fourth-year wideout the most added fantasy player for Week 2. Last season, Laurent Robinson thrived in the third WR-role that Ogletree now holds. It bears mentioning, however, that Ogletree's breakout game came against a Giants secondary that has been decimated by injuries. In addition, two of the best Cowboys receivers -- Jason Witten and Miles Austin -- were limited by injuries, forcing Tony Romo to spread the ball around. Don't expect double-digit fantasy points to be the norm, but if you have room on your roster Ogletree is definitely worth the add.MyFantasyLeague availability: 8%
Buried behind Jason Witten during most of his time in Dallas, Bennett sees himself as the headliner now that he's in New York. The 6'6" pass-catcher didn't beat his former team, but made the most of his first Giants start by snagging four passes for 40 yards and a touchdown in the season opener. More importantly, he did a great job on DeMarcus Ware -- likely the toughest blocking assignment he'll see this year. During the preseason, Bennett made a name for himself with outlandish boasts during media interviews. Hopefully, the outspoken tight end is now letting his play speak for itself.
The 22-year-old was a popular sleeper pick in fantasy drafts this year and tantalized those risk-taking owners with an impressive Week 1 performance. Rudolph was a matchup nightmare for the Jaguars, burning them for 67 yards including a beautiful 29-yard basket catch that nearly landed him in the endzone. A borderline top-10 fantasy tight end, Rudolph is the healthiest he's been as a pro and seems to be developing great chemistry with QB Christian Ponder. These two could hook up often next week against the lowly Colts.Injury Status: Injured Reserve
On the one hand, Blair had a shaky preseason with three missed field goals. On the other hand, his 12 preseason attempts were an indication not only of his job security, but also of how much work he was likely to get when the games started to matter. The rookie kicker had a stellar debut in his team's home opener, hitting on attempts from 20,42, 55 and 38 yards, including a game-tie with zeroes on the clock and a game-winner in overtime. The youngster acquitted himself well and proved he could be counted on to perform under pressure. Keep him in mind if your drafted kicker disappoints you.
