Week 2 of the NFL season was chock full of some amazing fantasy performances, especially thanks to the thrilling Miami Dolphins vs Baltimore Ravens matchup. This includes 40+ points from quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Tua Tagovailoa, and both of Miami's top wideouts in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

A 40-point fantasy performance can easily catapult fantasy managers to a win, although those aren't the easiest to predict.

While those performances aren't easy to predict, that won't stop fantasy managers from looking ahead to Week 3 and trying to identify the best players to lift an entire fantasy team to victory. Check out The Duel's fantasy football rankings by position for PPR leagues into Week 3.
