A take a look at some key fantasy questions going into Week 2:
IS IT SAFE TO START PACKERS QB AARON RODGERS AGAINST THE VIKINGS?
Rodgers’ greatness was on full show as he engineered an incredible comeback in opposition to the Bears final Sunday. After the sport he promised he’d play in Week 2 however coach Mike McCarthy has described Rodgers’ state of affairs as everyday. The Vikings gave up the third-fewest fantasy Factors Per Sport (FPPG) to opposing QBs final season however the backside line is that A-Rod is matchup proof. You are beginning him if he is on the sphere. Monitor his state of affairs intently as recreation time approaches and have a backup plan in place. Potential waiver wire QBs you would possibly think about using ought to Rodgers sit this week embrace Denver’s Case Keenum, Tampa Bay’s Ryan Fitzpatrick (though he has a troublesome matchup in opposition to the Eagles) and rookie Jets passer Sam Darnold.
SHOULD YOU SELL HIGH ON STEELERS RB JAMES CONNER?
That will depend on your group’s wants. If you happen to’re weak at working again, journey the recent hand so long as you may. Conner compiled 192 whole yards and scored two TDs in Week 1 and is a part of an offense designed to get probably the most out of its run recreation. DeAngelo Williams began 10 video games for these identical Steelers in 2015 and scored 11 TDs and recorded 40 receptions. However, whereas we’re undecided if or when Le’Veon Bell will report back to the Steelers, he’s more likely to report in some unspecified time in the future this season given his contract state of affairs. Conner’s commerce worth plummets after that. We have witnessed Conner being traded for a standout-type receiver like JuJu Smith-Schuster. Relying in your negotiating abilities you would possibly even be capable of get higher worth than that. RBs are extraordinarily precious. Maybe you may snag Jarvis Landry and even Adam Thielen in a deal?
CAN YOU START JAGUARS RB LEONARD FOURNETTE THIS WEEK?
Sadly you are going to be following his progress very fastidiously this Sunday. He handled accidents final season and hopefully you have assembled a group with loads of RB depth. Put together as if he will likely be inactive this Sunday. Fournette’s state of affairs is very regarding since his recreation begins at 4:25 p.m. Jap. Even when he begins this week you would possibly contemplate changing Fournette in your lineup when you have viable choices. Working backs that take care of decrease physique accidents main as much as a recreation are infamous for both underperforming and even worse — additional harm. Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is clearly in play this week.
WHICH UNDER-THE-RADAR RB HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR A BIG WEEK?
We do not normally like recommending Patriots RBs as a consequence of coach Invoice Belichick’s inconsistent play calling, however James White has a chance to have a busy day in opposition to the Jaguars this Sunday. The Pats are merely working out of choices at RB for Week 2. They misplaced Jeremy Hill for the season (ACL), Rex Burkhead is within the league’s concussion protocol and Sony Michel has been restricted in practices. White ought to see loads of targets this week because the Jaguars cross rush will possible pressure QB Tom Brady to eliminate the ball shortly. White is very precious in point-per-reception (PPR) scoring codecs.
SHOULD YOU START BRONCOS RB PHILLIP LINDSAY THIS WEEK?
Lindsay was one of many hottest names being picked up off league waiver wires this week and has a pleasant matchup in opposition to the Raiders. Lindsay’s a dynamic runner who also can catch the ball and he’ll have a task within the Broncos offense all season; however he will not be a bell cow again. He’ll possible minimize into extra of Royce Freeman’s taking part in time than some fantasy gamers would love, however the excellent news is that his Week 1 efficiency (71 speeding yards, 4.73 yards per carry, TD reception) possible pushed Devontae Booker to the scrap heap for the close to future. Lindsay is startable in PPR scoring codecs, however count on RB2 or flex-level manufacturing.
WHICH UNDER-THE-RADAR WR HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR A BIG WEEK?
Andrew Luck threw the ball 53 occasions in Week 1. T.Y. Hilton is clearly Luck’s prime receiver, however Ryan Grant was focused 9 occasions and led the group with eight receptions for 59 yards. Luck’s throwing arm is clearly nonetheless not at 100 % as he averaged simply 6.02 yards per cross try. With the Colts being unable to run the ball constantly and Luck nonetheless engaged on regaining arm energy, search for them to proceed to make the most of a brief passing offense. Grant will proceed to be closely focused this week.
IS IT SAFE TO START BROWNS WR JOSH GORDON GOING FORWARD?
Gordon had a modest Week 1 efficiency, catching one ball for 17 yards on three targets. The excellent news is that the one catch was for a TD. Gordon was on the sphere for 78 % of the Browns’ offensive snaps and he’s anticipated to be on the sphere constantly this week. When he is on the sphere he is a pressure to be reckoned with. He faces a Saints protection that was torched by the Tampa Bay Bucs this week. Begin him and preserve him in your lineup going ahead.
IS DESHAUN WATSON STILL AN ELITE FANTASY QB?
We ask this query as a result of within the extremely aggressive Nationwide Fantasy Soccer Championship (NFFC) leagues, Watson was being drafted forward of Brady and Russell Wilson and proper behind Rodgers. Many fantasy gamers anticipated huge issues from Watson in opposition to the Patriots in Week 1. He threw for 301 yards in his first recreation in opposition to them final season, however apparently Invoice Belichick watched final season’s recreation tape and devised a defensive scheme that held Watson to simply 176 yards passing yards. Watson is tremendous gifted however Rodgers, Brady and Wilson are confirmed fantasy commodities. If you happen to invested in him, do not push the panic button simply but. Do not be the fantasy participant who dropped Watson for an overachieving Fitzpatrick this week (true story). Be ready for some inconsistency, however there ought to be extra ups than downs.
