Starters

Corey Coleman, WR — Cleveland Browns
Season: 5 rec (6 targets), 53 yds, 1 TD
Needing to step into the WR1 spot, Coleman showed he's worth his salt as the team's leading target on the day and is clearly a favorite of rookie DeShone Kizer's so far. Showed he's capable of running routes scouts initially worried about. Graded as the fifth-best receiver of the week by Pro Football Focus.

Xavien Howard, CB — Miami Dolphins
Season: N/A
Due to Hurricane Irma, the Dolphins had to cancel their season opener.

Terrance Williams, WR — Dallas Cowboys
Season: 6 rec (7 targets), 68 yds, 0 TD
Wasn't the leading target but led the team with 68 yards and looks like one of Dak Prescott's security blankets. When nothing was hitting Dez Bryant's hands, Williams stepped up with three third down conversions to keep a handful of drives alive. Pro Football Focus graded Williams as the fourth-best receiver of the week.

Kendall Wright, WR — Chicago Bears
Season: 3 rec (4 targets), 34 yds, 0 TD
Wright's the only receiver in Chicago to avoid injury it seems. The preseason lost Cameron Meredith and now there's fear Kevin White has a broken collarbone, putting Wright at the WR1 spot by default. But Wright only managed three grabs for 34 yards as the passing game was handled by the running backs for the most part to counteract the sudden hemorrhage of receivers.

Jon Weeks, LS — Houston Texans
Season: 1 start
Weeks got his fair share of field time with Shane Lechler launching five punts without a fumble.

Matt Bryant, K — Atlanta Falcons
Season: 3-of-3 FG (Long: 48 yds) , 2-of-2 XP, 11 pts
Put up the first points of Atlanta's season and put the game away with another field goal that'd require a miracle TD drive from an injury ridden Bears team.


Bench

Kyle Fuller, G/C — Houston Texans
Season: N/A

Andrew Billings, DT — Cincinnati Bengals
Season: 1 tk (0 TFL), 0 sk
Saw just 13 snaps compared to Pat Sims' 30 snaps and Ryan Glasgow's 26 plays. Made one tackle.

Spencer Drango, LG — Cleveland Browns
Season: N/A
Didn't see any snaps in Week 1.

Bryce Hager, LB — Los Angeles Rams
Season: 1 tk (0 TFL), 0 sk
The Rams ran all over the Colts but Hager had virtually no impact with just a single tackle playing nine snaps. 

Bryce Petty, QB — New York Jets
Season: N/A
Nothing about Petty as he was on clipboard duties. But Josh McCown is already testing the Jets' patience registering a 29.4 QBR grade throwing two interceptions in a nine-point loss. Petty's time will come at some point.


Injured

Rico Gathers, TE — Dallas Cowboys
Concussion has Gathers on the injured reserve, unable to play until at least Week 7.

Demetri Goodson, CB — Green Bay Packers
On the PUP list (knee) expected back no sooner than Week 7.

Phil Taylor, DT — Washington Redskins
Third year Taylor won't play, this time thanks to a season ending injury in the preseason.


Practice Squad

Orion Stewart, S — Buffalo Bills
Signed to the Bills' practice squad days before the season opener.


Looking for Employment — (Last Team)

KD Cannon, WR — Los Angeles Rams
Went through three teams rosters this summer, and despite positive vibes from LA, nothing stuck.

Ryan Reid, CB — Los Angeles Chargers

Ish Zamora, WR — Oakland Raiders

Jarrell Broxton, G — Baltimore Ravens

Antwan Goodley, WR — Kansas City Chiefs

Cyril Richardson, G — Chicago Bears

WRU? What school does these guys represent now? Lsu? Ga Tech? BU is averaging about 200 passing yards per game against inferior competition.
