It was somewhat of a boring week for our NFL Rebs in week two, but there are still always some standouts.

Elijah Moore stepped onto the scene after a very slow week one, and while his quarterback threw four passes to the other team, Moore is starting to the league the same thing fans saw last year.

Royce Newman is playing in Lambeau Field and doing a team huddle with freaking Aaron Rodgers as I type this. If this isn’t living your best life, idk what is.

In his 2021 debut for the Seahawks, Robert Nkemdiche came onto the scene and padded his stats plenty this week.

Stay up to date with all your favorite NFL Rebs here each week.


  • Elijah Moore, New York Jets: Moore seemed to be one of the only positives in a brutal offensive performance from the Jets. He had 4 receptions for 47 yards and is beginning to shine a little.
  • DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks: In a much-anticipated match-up, Metcalf didn’t find the end zone and only had six receptions for 53 yards.
  • A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans: AJ Brown and the Tennessee Titans won a nail-biter in overtime against the Seahawks, but only had three receptions in the game. He averaged 43 yards and no touchdowns.
