Fantasy football is all about production: You want to target the players who are going to help you light up the scoreboard. With that in mind, here’s a look at the best fantasy standouts from Week 2 and advice on whether you should have them on your radar when doing your daily fantasy snake draft this week.

Trevor Siemian, Denver
The Broncos quarterback tallied four touchdowns during his team’s romp over Dallas, making him the top-scoring QB last week. Siemian has a tough matchup against Buffalo this week, but he could be a sneaky play given the weapons on Denver’s offense.
Tom Brady, New England
It came as no surprise that the Patriots QB had a bounce-back performance in Week 2, torching the Saints for 447 yards and three touchdowns. Brady is generally a must-draft fantasy football player, and that holds true for this week’s game against the Texans.
Chris Thompson, Washington
The Redskins’ third-down back has proven to be valuable on every down, as his running and receiving skills led him to a two-TD performance in Week 2. While his small stature may be of some concern long-term, he has a solid opportunity against the Raiders’ porous defense this week.
Kareem Hunt, Kansas City
Proving that his breakout performance in the opener was no fluke, the Chiefs running back had a two-touchdown effort in Week 2. With breakaway speed and pass-catching abilities, the versatile Hunt should be at the top of your list for Week 3 fantasy football drafts.
J.J. Nelson, Arizona
Fantasy owners in despair about David Johnson’s injury should consider that the Cardinals will throw early and often, and Nelson will be the team’s primary deep target. He racked up 120 yards and a TD last week, and figures to get plenty of scoring opportunities this week.
Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh
Bryant got back in the groove with the Steelers in Week 2 with 91 yards and a touchdown. This week’s opponent, the Bears, will pay plenty of attention to WR Antonio Brown, meaning Bryant could be open for the deep shots the Steelers love to try.
Travis Kelce, Kansas City
Suddenly, the Chiefs are an offensive powerhouse, and Kelce’s versatility is a big reason why. He had eight receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 and figures to be a huge target once again this week, making him a fantasy football favorite.
Delanie Walker, Tennessee
Walker has found the end zone in both weeks this season. In what figures to be a defensive battle against Seattle this week could be a nice security blanket for the Titans offense, especially in the red zone. Don’t overlook this key contributor.
