Which under-the-radar players deserve praise for their Week 2 efforts? Let's take a look.Welcome to the second edition of "Hidden Heroes" of the year, if you missed last weeks article it can be found by clicking here. In this article you won’t find the big names such as Peyton Manning, Calvin Johnson or even a Torrey Smith. You’ll find the lesser names that might not get attention from the media, social media and NFL “experts”. Now announcing this weeks heroes: - Brent Grimes, Cornerback, Miami Dolphins Following an injury riddled season last season with the Falcons Brent Grimes may have had his "Comeback" game with his new team in Miami. Grimes played a total of 72 snaps and wasa target of Andrew Luck. For the record Grimes recorded an interception, three pass deflections, four tackles and only gave up six receptions from 10 snaps. Grimes did give up a long reception but other then that he held the Colts wide receivers comprehensively. Andre Ellington, Running Back, Arizona Cardinals The young man from Clemson played 21 snaps for the Cardinals and was a critical part in the win for the Cardinals in the running game and passing game. Ellington carved out an important 16-yard run on top of his impressive 36-yard touchdown reception along the sidelines. Dre Ellington, keep it up young man! LaVonte David, MLB, Tampa Bay After last weeks debacle from David, literally costing the Buccaneers the game LaVonte David stepped up big time this week with a bang. A huge stat for a middle linebacker is David's two sacks and two hurries as he played more of an attacking role in the middle rather then focusing on the run. In pass coverage David only gave up eight yards on four targets. Xavier Rhodes, Cornerback, Minnesota Vikings One of Minnesota's three first round picks was a shining light on Sunday. Rhodes had a terrific game for the Vikings playing 30 snaps in pass coverage whilst only being targeted three times. In those three targets only one was a reception which went for minus two yards against Matt Forte. The fact that the rookie Rhodes was not targeted more is a great representation of his game. Phillip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers The much maligned Phillip Rivers appears to be reinvented this season under a new coaching staff. His play in the wins against the Eagles was simply awesome. Rivers connected on two passes past twenty yards and went 10-of-11 between 10-19 yards. Two of Rivers' touchdowns came when being blitzed, which is a great indication how much of the zone he's in right now. DUD OF THE WEEK The dud is someone who is generally considered a star but played terribly. This is a fun section to keep track of as the year goes on. This weeks Golden Dud of the Week goes to.. Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco A man who was only last week heralded as the best in the game finds himself promptly back to earth as the Dud of the Week. Throwing three picks is a terrible way to try and win the game, only completing one pass beyond 10 yards also won't win you many games. Sure you can credit Seattle for being brilliant at home but Kaepernick just stunk. - That’s it! Who was an unheralded star for your team this week? Let us know!
