Welcome to my weekly article highlighting the important information that you need to win your campus to canton leagues. Two weeks in the books, which means we have double the data from last week, and we can start to notice some trends in usage and volume for players and teams alike.

Starting with interesting newcomers, Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr. makes his first appearance on this list. This is how he should be targeted weekly, but I’m still not convinced by the Ohio State quarterbacks. They did not perform amazingly against an overmatched Youngstown State team.

Although they lost, Texas A&M looked much more willing to open up the offense and sling the ball around. Their 53 pass attempts were more than they had in any game last season, and their 35 attempts last week would have been a strong performance for last year too. Simply put, this offense is slinging the ball around a lot more this year, which is great for Evan Stewart, who now has 27 targets through two weeks. He should be considered a top 15 option moving forward, and his profile is starting to look awfully similar to Garrett Wilson, who was drafted in the first round by the Jets.

Matthew Golden bounced back for Houston this week. Used in a possession role in Week 1, Houston doubled his ADOT in Week 2 while simultaneously doubling his targets. He’s forming a formidable two-headed monster with Sam Brown, which means we may not see our typical Dana Holgersen WR1 season.

Utah State’s Terrell Vaughn makes the first repeat appearance for this season and now has 28 targets through two weeks. Vaughn is a low ADOT, high-volume option, which means that he has an incredibly reliable floor but can also provide huge totals if he gets in the end zone. So far, he’s done both of those things, and there’s no reason to expect that to slow down. Vaughn should be a major target for teams who want to compete this season. Hawaii receiver Pofele Ashlock is also a duplicate from last week, but I spent several sections discussing him in Week 1, and this week did nothing to change my thoughts on him moving forward.
