Welcome to Week 2 of Thinking Inside the Box, where I peruse the box scores to find interesting bits of information...

Predictably, Pierre Garcon had a big game against GB's secondary which got torched by Boldin last week. WR1s have 21-344-2 through 2 weeks.

Garcon has 15-207-1 through two weeks and is showing no ill-effects from injury. Will continue to thrive, especially with way D is playing.

Speaking of the WAS D, it's limiting Alfred Morris's upside. He averaged 20.9 carries last season and now has 25 total through two weeks.

Jordan Reed (8-56-1, nine targets L2 games) continues to drink Fred Davis's milkshake. Davis with just 3-25 on six targets in two weeks.

The WAS D will put RG3 in a position to pass a ton. He's averaging 44.5 PA L2 weeks after averaging 26.2 PA last year. Also helps Garcon.
