Garman filled in for the injured J.W. Walsh and threw for 244 yards and two touchdowns against Missouri State on Saturday. Walsh’s injury may keep him out of action for some time, and if that is the case, you can expect Garman to lead the Cowboys offense over the next few weeks.
Seth Russell, QB-Baylor
Russell is worth an acquisition for a particular group of fantasy owners, if for no other reason than having insurance for your Bryce Petty draft pick.
Joe Licata, QB-Buffalo
We’re throwing Licata on this list now even though Buffalo’s next game is against Baylor. The junior quarterback isn’t expected to do much next week, but the Bulls’ schedule gets much easier starting in Week 4 when they host Norfolk state.
Thomas Rawls, RB-Central Michigan
Heading into Week 1, the Chippewas depth chart listed four running backs as possible starters for their season opener. After back-to-back impressive performances by Rawls, there seems to be little doubt about who is their No. 1 RB.
Larry Dixon, RB-Army
Dixon was likely passed on in several drafts due to Army’s Week 1 bye. After rushing for 174 yards and two touchdowns against Buffalo on Saturday, Dixon appears near the top of a relatively short list this week.
Jalen Hurd, RB-Tennessee
After eleven carries in the season opener, Hurd earned 23 touches in a win over Arkansas State in Week 2. What makes the freshman’s 23 carries so relevant is that Marlin Lane received 10 fewer carries, so it looks as if Hurd is the No. 1 back for the Volunteers.
Jordan Westerkamp, WR-Nebraska
Jamal turner was lost for the season due to an Achilles injury and Kenny Bell is nursing a groin injury, so expect Westerkamp’s role in the offense to increase in the coming weeks.
Da’Ron Brown, WR-Northern Illinois
After two very productive outings to start the 2014 season, Brown has clearly emerged as the Huskies top receiving threat.
K.D. Cannon, WR-Baylor
Half of Cannon’s eight receptions have resulted in touchdowns and as long as injuries continue to plague the Baylor receiving corps, Cannon will earn plenty of time on the field. In fact, Cannon’s early-season performance may cut into the number of snaps other receivers get when they return from injury.
Travin Dural, WR-LSU
Dural may end up being your classic ‘boom or bust’ play, but he is undoubtedly the Tigers’ best receiver. Dural only has six receptions through two games, but four have resulted in a score and he is averaging an astounding 48.5 yards per catch.
Jordan Payton, WR-UCLA
After two weeks, Payton has hauled in 15 passes for 202 yards and seems to be quarterback Brett Hundley’s favorite target.
John Harris, WR-Texas
The 6-2 senior receiver has been statistically consistent in the Longhorns first two games (7-110-1 and 8-77-1), but those numbers could go even higher if he can consistently catch the passes thrown his way.
Roger Lewis, WR-Bowling Green
Of all the Falcons receivers we mentioned this preseason, none are performing like Lewis so far through two games. Expect the freshman receiver to continue his active role in the Bowling Green offense as they get closer to MAC play.
