Earlier this year, we introduced Fantasy Wins Added and the Fantasy Gradebook — two concepts that I hope revolutionize the way we value players in fantasy football and measure success.

 

With Week 2 in the books, let’s take a look at the leaders.

You can access the full Fantasy Gradebook and Fantasy Wins Added tool here, available to FTN Platinum subscribers. Use code PEACHES to save 20%!

Week 2 Leaders in Fantasy Wins Added: Fantasy Football MVPs

Stefon Diggs stole the show in Week 2, racking up 0.36 Fantasy Wins Added.

This was a massive week in terms of game-breaking performances, with four players registered 0.30 Fantasy Wins Added or more.

In all, of the 30 most valuable players in fantasy football in Week 1, we had:

Position# in the top 30 most valuable
Wide Receiver17
Quarterback7
Running Back4
Tight End2

This was a dramatic difference compared to Week 1, which had 12 RBs rank in the top 30 most valuable. Only two running backs ranked in the top 20.

 

Week 2 Fantasy Football Grades

Last week, only four players earned an “A+” grade. This week, eight players earned the high mark, again showing that Week 2 was much more top-heavy:

(Whoever scores the most points at their position in a given week earns a 100 Final Grade. Every other player at their position is judged based on the No. 1 performance.)

We also had three players earn an “A” this week:

(Amon-Ra St. Brown technically scored a 96.8, which is why he’s in the “A” group and not “A+” group, but either way, he crushed in Week 2.)

Four other players earned an A-, bringing our grand total of players who earned a grade of 90 or higher up to 15 on the week.
