Randall Cobb– Despite an ailing shoulder, Cobb carried on with business as usual.  He had 5 catches for 38 yards and a touchdown as the Packers defeated their Chicago rivals, 31-23.

Bud Dupree-  Bud was the first person to hit Tom Brady in the 2015 season, sacking Brady in the first quarter during the Thursday Night NFL debut.  Bud finished the night with two tackles.

Za’Darius Smith-  Za’Darius was inactive in Week One, but if he can go in Week Two he will be heavily relied upon to fill the hole left by Terrell Suggs, whose season has come to an end after an Achilles injury.

Jacob Tamme- Now with the Falcons, Tamme caught every pass thrown his way in a Monday Night Football win, getting 19 yards on 3 catches.

Chris Matthews- Only played two snaps on Sunday after falling down the depth chart due to a preseason shoulder injury.

Steve Johnson- After struggling in San Francisco, Stevie has found a niche in the San Diego Chargers’ offense.  He was targeted early and often, stiff-arming his way to a 34-yard gain on his first catch.  He had 6 catches on 6 targets, gaining 82 yards and scoring THIS touchdown, helping San Diego overpower the Lions, 33-28.

Danny Trevathan-  After missing last season, Trevathan didn’t miss a step in his return, getting nine tackles in the Bronco’s season opening win.

Avery Williamson-  After moving from the weakside to the strongside linebacker position, Avery struggled with only two tackles.  Avery is in a strange position because he’s actually taking snaps from fellow-Wildcat, Wesley Woodyard.  Woodyard only had two tackles as well, but the Titans got the big win over Jameis Winston’s Buccaneers.
