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 that values long-term viability over one week of superb stats.

Obviously, free-agent quarterbacks like Matthew Stafford, Andy Dalton, Sam Darnold, Derek Carr and Jacoby Brissett 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 are already becoming fixtures in the red zone.
