Start em, Sit em Week 2
Well with week one in the books, don’t panic if your team did not fare so well. The fantasy season is just
starting and one week is going no going to break your season. Continue to hit the waiver wire and make
sure you start your studs. Here is some others that you could consider in week 2 as well.
Joe Flacco vs Cleveland Browns
Flacco was fairly impressive against a tough Buffalo Bills defense in week 1. His matchup only gets easier in week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. The Browns defense is nothing to write to mom about. They mad the rookie, Carson Wentz, look like a veteran last week. Keep poised for Joe Flacco.
Ryan Mathews vs Chicago Bears
Mathews played very well in week 1 against the Browns. IN week 2 he goes up against another questionable run defense in the Chicago Bears. If you are in need of a flex or RB 2, Mathews would be a solid option.
Sterling Shepard vs New Orleans Saints
Shepard was one of many targets for Eli Manning last week. He had 3 catches for 43 yards and 1 TD. This week should be even more open for Shepard. The Saints defense is atrocious. Shepard should be a high quality WR in week 2.
Dwayne Allen vs Denver Broncos
The success that the Carolina Panthers had with Greg Olson should make Dwayne Allen owners feel good. The Broncos defense is vulnerable over the middle with the tight end. Their best cover linebacker in 2015 now plays for the Bears. Look at starting Dwayne Allen in week 2 at TE.
Will Lutz vs New York Giants
If this game is anything like the one the 2 teams played last season, the kickers on both sides should have ample opportunity. Lutz barely missed a 61 yarder for the win last week. He has a very strong leg and could give your fantasy team a little boost.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs San Diego Chargers
The Jags should have a pretty solid stance against the Chargers. I do not look for the Chargers offense to have the same performance they had last week. This young Jaguars defense likes to fly to the ball. Look for the to get after Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense
Ben Roethlisberger vs Cincinnati Bengals
Big Ben had a stellar performance against the Washington Redskins. But that was the Redskins. The Bengals have a much better defense. This make starting Roethlisberger scary. Look at your other QB matchups before making this a decision.
Melvin Gordon vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Just as you should start the Jaguars defense, you should sit Melvin Gordon. Although Gordon had one of his best NFL performances in week 1, the Jacksonville defense is much better. I would lean away from Gordon in week 2.
Dez Bryant vs Washington Redskins
Dez Bryant is an average receiver without Tony Romo. Last week he went 1 catch for 8 yards. This week he is facing a Redskins defense that is looking to avenge itself from a debacle against the Steelers. No Romo = No Dez!
Kyle Rudolph vs Green Bay Packers
Until the Minnesota Viking figure out this QB thing I would tend to stay away from all of their players, minus AP. The only advantage to starting him is that they are at home and t is a new stadium. You do not want to disappoint in that fact. However, the offense could not muster much last week.
Greg Zuerlein vs Seattle Seahawks
The Los Angeles Rams could not muster any points against the San Francisco 49ers. How do they think they can move the ball against the Seahawks? I would definitely stay away from Zuerline in week 2.
San Francisco 49ers vs Carolina Panthers
The Niners had one of the best fantasy defense is week 1. They shut out the Los Angeles Rams. Do not look for a similar stat line against the Panthers. This is a much better offense than the Rams. They will be able to put up some points on a weaker Niners defense.
