Here’s the BATSBY Sports listing of fantasy football’s top 30 free agents in advance of Week 2, universally citing 12-team Points Per Reception leagues — a countdown which typically values long-term viability over one week of superb stats.

Obviously, free-agent quarterbacks like Philip Rivers, Kirk Cousins, Mitchell Trubisky and Garnder Minshew III are the likeliest candidates for most points from Sunday to Sunday.

But we also place an equal or higher priority on landing possible dynamos at receiver, running back and tight end, especially those who’ve already become fixtures in the red zone.
