Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes meet in MVP showdown


A pair of former MVPs will clash in this week’s marquee NFL matchup. Fantasy managers will be watching closely as the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, who won the award in 2018, and the Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson, the 2019 winner, are both among the top three quarterbacks in this week’s rankings.

Fantasy football rankings for Week 2 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.
