After an exciting Week 2 of the NFL season, the NFL Alum-knights also put on a show. Here’s a recap of all that went down in Week 2:

  • Jaguars FB Bruce Miller did not fill up the box score, playing in just 19% of snaps.
  • Jets WR Breshad Perriman left the game Sunday vs. the 49ers with an ankle injury after catching two passes for 12 yards. Coach Adam Gase told reporters yesterday that he could be out for the next week or two.
  • Bills WR Gabriel Davis made a phenomenal 6-yard grab for his first NFL touchdown.
  • Lions K Matt Prater made all three of his extra-point attempts, while missing his one FG attempt (57 yards) before halftime.
  • Vikings CB Mike Hughes recorded four tackles in a 28-11 loss over the Colts.
  • Cowboys DT Trysten Hill recorded two tackles and hit Falcons QB Matt Ryan once in their 40-39 come-from-behind win.
  • Texans TE Jordan Akins caught a career-high seven passes for 55 yards in a 33-16 loss over the Ravens.
  • Seahawks CB Shaquill Griffin recorded three tackles in a thrilling Sunday Night Football contest over the Patriots. The Seahawks won 35-30 to improve to 2-0.
  • Saints RB Latavius Murray ran for 14 yards on three carries and caught two passes for 19 yards in a loss to the Raiders on Monday Night Football.
  • Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith started for the injured Michael Thomas and caught five passes for a team-high 86 yards in the loss. With Thomas down, it appears Smith will be the main beneficiary and could be a smart pick-up for your fantasy football team, especially if he continues to make plays like these:
  • Early Tuesday morning, Team Alum-knights became one link stronger as the Broncos inked former Jags and Rams QB Blake Bortles to a contract. The signing comes following a shoulder injury to starter Drew Lock that will keep him out for a few weeks. Bortles, a product of Oviedo High School, will backup Jeff Driskel, a former teammate of his in travel baseball when they were kids. Small world.
