NFL Week 2 Regular Season

New Orleans Saints DFS Spin

Jameis Winston completed 14-of-20 passes for 148 yards and five touchdowns in the Saints' Week 1 win against the Packers. Before Winston connected for a gorgeous 55-yard score with speedster Deonte Harris, he had four touchdown tosses on less than 100 passing yards. He took full advantage of good field position in the first half and hit his pass catchers with pinpoint accuracy, displaying touch he rarely showed in Tampa. The specter of Taysom Hill goal line touches will continue to haunt Winston drafters, but he should be a starter in 12-team leagues most weeks. He'll go against a middling Carolina secondary in Week 2.

Carolina Panthers DFS Spin

Sam Darnold completed 24-of-35 passes for 279 yards, one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown in the Panthers' 19-14, win over the Jet. Darnold looked fairly Darnold-y overall. The quarterback wasn't completely in sync with his receivers and missed high on a would-be touchdown to Ian Thomas early in the game. He did connect with Robby Anderson on a deep touchdown later on, and showed some nice chemistry with D.J. Moore as the game went on. Christian McCaffrey was Darnold's favorite target, as the running back did his best slot receiver impression in addition to carrying the load as a rusher. Darnold's weapons will make him a QB2 in when the Panthers host the Saints in Week 2.
