In week 1, Jerkin Jiggins and Sorry Not Sorry flopped.
TA will be starting Deangelo Williams after a stellar performance in week 1. We’ll see if D can carry that momentum one more week before Bell comes back. Same applies with Mark Ingram and the committee in NO that’s being favoring him for passing downs. Although up against the Seahawks secondary, Randall Cobb should put up a good game. Meanwhile, Stafford is playing against a Vikings defense that couldn’t stop the run in week 1 against the 9’ers. This bodes well for the rushing attack, but don’t count out Stafford. Megatron and Gates are weapons they will be using.
Meanwhile, I’ll be looking to get a bounce-back performance from Luck after a fairly dismal performance against the Bills. Not starting Gore as he didn’t get anything done in week 1, and they’re facing a stout 9’ers run D. Aside from 2 fumbles, Charles had a great game. We’ll see if Muscle Hamster can get things going in week 2. This hinges on Jameis Winston not having a terrible performance and a decent game by their D. Look for Sproles to possibly get moved in before gametime. Steve Smith Sr (last season in the NFL) is one of Flacco’s top WRs and should see more production this week compared to the Broncos top secondary he saw week 1. With Carson Palmer under center, John Brown is poised to have a very good game against the suspect Bears D.
Heldt and Hanus are coming out of week 1 1-0.
Houston gave up a lot of points to KC in week 1. Expect Heldt’s Newton to continue this trend. Shady McCoy is going up against the Pats decent run D which is a good thing. Even if the Pats take a big lead, Taylor may be airing it out more, and Shady is in the passing game. Julio Jones is coming off a huge week 1, and in a matchup with a fairly high over/under, expect another big game. Maclin couldn’t get a whole lot done with Smith and Co, yet. However, that relationship may develop into something fruitful for fantasy owners as the weeks go on.
Hanus’ Big Ben will have his hands full against the 9’ers. They didn’t let Bridgewater and Co get anything done in week 1. Big Ben is a higher caliber QB, but still without suspended Martavis. Bryant. Blount in NE will have a similar story to his opposite Shady. Although he should have a good day, it is Belicheck’s team. Anything could happen. Gronk, Hopkins and OBJ have enticing matchups.
Surge’s start of Manning appeared to be a mistake early in the game. However, Manning redeemed and had a decent game. Emmanuel Sanders benefitted. Chris Ivory is a great start this week against a bad Indy run D. Forte will have another high-scoring day in a high-octane showdown with Palmer’s Cardinals. Megatron is looking to bounce back after few looks in week 1. Their coach ensured he’s going to see more action this season, but Golden Tate will be sharing. Marques Colston, though old and barely the #2 WR on the team, he’s getting looks from Brees. This is an enticing matchup and should be high-scoring.
Moran’s Tannehill is looking to bounce back after a not-so-great week 1. Ameer Abdullah should see plenty of work against MN. Jordan Matthews will have plenty of looks and red-zone opportunities in what should be a high-scoring game. Brandon Marshall should have another decent – if not good - outing against the Colts who let Tyrod Taylor and his receiving corps do damage in week 1. We’ll see how the Bills D handles Belicheck’s gameplan.
Ragtag group of Champions (Freese) is expecting Rodgers to have another good day. The Seahawks secondary is good, but Aaron Rodgers is great and it’s a home game. AP has something to prove in week 2. Expect a big day. Bishop Sankey had an unpredictably good week 1 and goes up against a bad run D. If he churns out another good week, he could continue to be a valuable option (at least until Cobb comes back). Andre Johnson and Dwayne Allen should get looks from Luck – all of them have something to prove after that dismal loss to the Bills in week 1. Rashad Jennings is an underrated must-start in this tasty matchup against Atlanta.
Arctic Puppets (Bogenreif) is banking on Romo in what should be a high-scoring game. He’ll do so without Dez Bryant. Eddie Lacy will have his hands full, but Rodgers will help open up the run with his passing ability. Forsett has a very nice matchup against one of the worst run D’s in the league. Eifert put up big numbers in week 1, and will likely continue that trend and rapport with Dalton.
Dwayne Johnson’s fan club (Zachar) can expect another big day for Tom, but with Blount back in the mix it might not be as big as last week. Carlos Hyde ran all over the Vikings in week 1, and he should have another good if not great day against Pitt. Although Bennett should have another great day in a should-be high-scoring game, Royal’s expectations shouldn’t be as high.
Dirk’s Russell Wilson is playing at Lambeau, so it’s a tough game. He should have similar production to last week, though. DeMarco Murray needs to bounce back this game and it’s a great opportunity. Most of his points in week 1 came from 2 short TD passes which isn’t bad, but we’re expecting more out of his rushing game. That said, he’ll still be sharing carries with Matthews and Sproles. Terrance Williams is poised to have a great game as Bryant is out. Graham should also have a top game, but if NO gets ahead early (very possible against an awful Winston’s offense) it’ll quiet down for him.
Frozen Goombas (Steubs) can expect a good day out of Bradford with one of the highest over/unders of the week. Mr. Skittles will be heavily involved against the Packers on their turf. Lamar Miller might not see much production again as Miami is becoming a passing team. Kelce had another stellar day and is Smith’s go-to as he hasn’t developed a productive relationship with Maclin yet. Ravens D is a great play against Oakland.
Renner’s Matty Ice can have a big day in New York in what should be a high-scoring game. CJ Anderson couldn’t get anything done against the Chiefs stout run D, and neither could Hillman. Cooks will have a big day at home against Tampa, but if they get a big lead it’ll be running-focused with their committee. I expect a big day from Witten. With Bryant out, a lot of attention will be on Terrance Williams. I suspect he’ll see a lot of targets from Romo.
