Brandon Zylstra, WR (CAR)

Scores rare touchdown

Zylstra caught all three of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Saints.

Zylstra made the most of his 14 offensive snaps, hauling in the first receiving touchdown of his four-year career with a 20-yarder in the first quarter. As Carolina's fourth wideout, Zylstra can't be expected to match Sunday's production often, but his Week 2 impact should keep him in the mix for Sam Darnold.
