NFL Week 2 has given us important insights on all the new breakout players who are there to stay. Some of them performed amazing and lead their victory, while there are a few names who disappointed everyone. The players who proved their worth will become the future superstars of NFL and their teams should immediately buy them for the rest of the NFL seasons. Austin Ekeler, Jacoby Brissett, Lamar Jackson and Terry Mclaurin should be offered a new deal by their teams without any delay.
Austin Ekeler was the name that Los Angeles Chargers trusted when their running back Melvin Gordon refused to come out from a holdout. Ekeler proved his worth as a starter for the team by rushing for 124 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 4.3 yards per carry.
The #1 QB is Lamar Jackson.
The #1 RB is Austin Ekeler.
The #1 WR is John Ross.
The #1 TE is Mark Andrews.
Just like you all predicted!

In the second game, he also added 12 catches and on 13 targets for 163 yards and another two scores. As of right now, Ekeler is the top running back for 2019 NFL season and the Chargers should make his stay permanent.
Indianapolis Colts were in a lot of trouble when Andrew Luck retired and they thought playoffs won’t be possible. But Jacoby Brissett stepped up to the job of their starting quarterback and handled it efficiently. He completed 69.1 percent of his passes for 336 yards, five touchdowns and one interception in the two Colts game.
Even though the Colts lost to Chargers in the Week 1 game, Brissett leveled the field against the Titans in Week 2 and now they are 1-1 for the season.
Lamar Jackson from Baltimore Ravens would be like a nightmare to the Miami Dolphins team. In his first Week 1 game, Jackson completed 71.9 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns.
Lamar Jackson is the first player with at least 250 passing yards and 120 rushing yards in a single game in NFL history 🤯 #SCFacts

One would argue that Jackson faced the teams like Dolphins and Cardinals with weak defense but that is not the case. Jackson is the only reason why the Ravens are a strong contender for the playoffs and even the Super Bowl title.
Washington Redskins would never have imagined that their third-round pick Tery McLaurin would play such good sports. The young wide receiver did an amazing job of supporting Case Keenum and Dwyane Haskins in the Week 1 game. McLaurin caught five passes for 125 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.

Even in the second game against the strong Dallas Cowboys, he caught five catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. Everyone in Washington is impressed by Terry and it is time to make him permanent in the team.
