Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season is now in the books, and fantasy football owners can now start looking toward Week 2.
Here are your quarterback, tight end and team defense streamers for the coming week.

Quarterback-Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears, vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Yahoo! Ownership: 17%
ESPN Ownership: 8.8%

It was a tale of two halves for Cutler in Week 1, as he went 10-for-13 for 156 yards and a touchdown in the first half against Houston on his way to finishing 16-for-29 for 216 yards with a touchdown and an interception. A Monday night Week 2 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles look promising, though, with cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) possible sidelined and only three other corners currently on the roster.

Cutler is perpetually under the radar in fantasy football. But there’s an opportunity to exploit in Week 2, and he’s a high-end QB2/low-end QB1 in the appropriate league formats (super-flex, two-quarterback)

Honorable Mention: Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles, at Chicago; Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans at Detroit; Trevor Siemian, Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis

Tight End: Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Viking, vs. Green Bay Packers
Yahoo! Ownership: 18%
ESPN Ownership: 23.6%

Rudolph had four catches (on eight targets) for 65 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1, and he gets a favorable matchup in Week 2. The Green Pay Packers allowed five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown to Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas last Sunday, and backup Marcedes Lewis added two catches for 48 yards.

The Vikings have a lingering quarterback question, with either Shaun Hill or Sam Bradford in line to start Sunday night. But Rudolph should not be affected too much by who is throwing him the ball, and he may not need a lot of targets to post a notable stat line.

Honorable Mention: Clive Walford, Oakland Raiders, vs. Atlanta; Virgil Green, Denver Broncos, vs. Indianapolis

Team Defense-Miami Dolphins, at New England Patriots
Yahoo! Ownership: 4%
ESPN Ownership: 2.4%

The Dolphins had a good defensive showing in Week 1, holding the Seattle Seahawks to 12 points while sacking Russell Wilson three times. Week 2 brings another road trip to take on the New England Patriots, who will, of course, have Jimmy Garoppolo under center.

Garoppolo was solid against the Arizona Cardinals in Week, completing 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards, but he also fumbled twice (one lost) and now there’s a game worth of tape on him. The Patriots’ unheralded offensive line was up to the task in Week 1, but the Dolphins bring a different challenge led by defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Keeping the Patriots’ offense completely in check is highly unlikely, but Miami’s defense should be able to pressure Garoppolo and force some mistakes. A defensive touchdown is not out of the question.

Honorable Mention: Baltimore Ravens, vs. Cleveland Browns
