Fantasy Football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: Week 2

Quarterback

Start:

Eli Manning (NYG; vs NO): Manning has a fantastic home matchup against a horrendous Saints defense that just gave up 319 yards and a touchdown to a struggling Derek Carr. This has shootout written all over it; Manning should be a lock for 300 yards and two touchdowns, and has the upside to hit 375+ yards and 3-4 touchdowns. He is my Start of the Week for the QB position.

Andy Dalton (CIN; @ PIT): Although the Steelers secondary shut down Kirk Cousins on Monday Night Football last week, Cousins is more to blame than the Steelers secondary. When Cousins was feeling it, he was dishing long balls to DeSean Jackson and easy passes to Jordan Reed. Dalton is coming off of a great game against an above-average Jets secondary, throwing for over 365 yards while throwing for a touchdown. He will be a low-end QB1 this week against a suspect Steelers secondary, and is worth starting over struggling studs and other low-end QB1 options.

Sleeper- Marcus Mariota (TEN; @ DET): Mariota is a bit of a risky play this week because of his run-first offense and lack of great receivers to throw to, but he gets a matchup against a Lions secondary that was TORCHED for 385 yards and four touchdowns on Sunday. He is more of a high-risk, high-reward DFS play but is a high-end QB2 with upside in standard leagues.


Sit:

Russell Wilson (SEA; @ LA): Wilson suffered a sprained ankle in last week’s win against the Dolphins, but is expected to play. Although he is a solid passer, most of his production relies on his ability to be mobile and escape pressure in the pocket so he could be in for a disappointing game against the Rams’ freakish defensive line. The Seahawks have a notoriously poor offensive line and have struggled to protect Wilson, so expect a lot of sacks and poor throws on Sunday. Wilson is my Sit of the Week for the QB position.

Andrew Luck (IND; @ DEN): While I’m not as overly concerned about Luck this week as many other experts are, I’m not a big fan of the matchup and would avoid playing Luck if you have a more attractive option.


Running Back

Start:

Ezekiel Elliott (RB; @ WAS): I know DeAngelo Williams has been on fire when starting for the Steelers over the past two seasons, but did you see what he did to the Redskins rush defense? He finished as the week’s top fantasy RB, accumulating 171 total yards (143 on the ground) as well as two rushing touchdowns. Although Elliott had only a decent first game of his career, he did face a pretty strong Giants rush defense and still found a way to get a few long runs and a touchdown. He should feast against the Redskins, making him my Start of the Week for the RB position.

CJ Anderson (DEN; vs IND): Anderson started off the NFL season with a bang on Thursday Night Football, racking up 139 total yards (92 on the ground) and two total touchdowns. This week he gets a phenomenal matchup against a terrible Colts rush defense that was pulled apart by the Lions last week. All signs point towards Anderson getting another top 5 finish at the RB position this week.

Sleeper- Rashad Jennings (NYG; vs NO): I am high on Jennings this week, ranking him as my RB8 for the week while many others rank him closer to RB18. Latavius Murray and the Raiders backfield had a very solid game against a bad Saints defense, meaning that fantasy owners should expect Jennings to do the same and be a lock for at least 75 yards with a good chance of a touchdown.


Sit:

Todd Gurley (LA; vs SEA): Nobody in fantasy football is panicking more than Todd Gurley owners. If you drafted him, you probably coughed up a top five overall pick and drafted him over guys like Odell Beckham Jr, David Johnson, Lamar Miller, and many others. He was shut down by an average 49ers rush defense on Monday and will get a much tougher matchup this week against an elite Seahawks defense. He is my no-brainer Sit of the Week for the RB position, as he should be avoided at all costs.

Devonta Freeman (ATL; @ OAK): Freeman owners are also panicking quite a bit, even after I preached to avoid Freeman in your fantasy drafts. He appears to be in a full-blown RBBC with Tevin Coleman and is also dealing with an injury that is keeping him limited in practice. He’s a fine FLEX option with TD-upside but not the RB1 that you most likely drafted him as.

Carlos Hyde (SF; @ CAR): Hyde has a fantastic Week 1, totaling over 80 yards and scoring two rushing touchdowns. However, it may be safe to leave him on the bench this week against a stout Panthers rush defense. It is worth noting that CJ Anderson absolutely shredded them last week so Hyde does have the potential to have a big week. If you have a weak bench then it’s not a bad thing leaving him in, but playing a Rashad Jennings or Ryan Mathews over him could be smart.


Wide Receiver

Start:

AJ Green (CIN; @ PIT): Green just had a monster game against the Jets (12-180-1 receiving line) and should be in for a similar game against the Steelers. He is my Start of the Week for the WR position.

Odell Beckham Jr (NYG; vs NO): Just putting OBJ here to remind you that he will also have a monster game this week against a Saints defense that let up 137 yards to Amari Cooper last week. He is also a must-start along with Green.

Jarvis Landry (MIA; @ NE): Landry is also in the must-start discussion against a Patriots defense that is not very good against slot receivers and just gave up 81 yards and two touchdowns to Larry Fitzgerald. Make sure he is in your lineup.

Emmanuel Sanders (DEN; vs IND): Demaryius Thomas would be an absolute must-start against a horrendous Colts secondary, but he has been dealing with a pretty severe hip issue this week that has me hesitant to play him. Enter Emmanuel Sanders, who had a solid Week 1 and should be able to do a LOT better this weekend.

Sleeper- Sterling Shepard/Victor Cruz (NYG; vs NO): Shepard (4-43-1) and Cruz (4-34-1) both had solid games last Sunday, and should both be in for even better games against the Saints this week. I prefer Shepard over Cruz because of his higher upside, but both are great plays.


Sit:

Sammy Watkins (BUF; vs NYJ): Watkins was supposed to go off against a poor Ravens secondary last week, but ended up being bothered by a nagging foot injury and finishing with less than 50 yards. His foot injury has been a huge point of discussion this week, as rumors swirled around of shutting him down for a few weeks or up to a few months. Reports are that he will play tonight, but he will be less than 100% and a huge risk. He’s my Sit of the Week for the WR position.

Mike Evans (TB; @ ARI): This is more the matchup than Evans, who caught a touchdown and came close to 100 yard receiving last week against Atlanta. He should still be in for a decent day but expectations should be tempered.

Marvin Jones (DET; vs TEN): Jones had a very good start to the season last week, but he should have done so much more against a terrible Colts secondary. The Titans were able to hold the Vikings outside receivers in check last week but were unable to keep slot receiver Stefon Diggs in check, meaning that this may be a Golden Tate game.


Tight End

Start:

Gary Barnidge (CLE; vs BAL): Josh McCown is back as the Browns quarterback, and you can practically hear Gary Barnidge fantasy owners yelling in excitement. Barnidge excelled with McCown as his quarterback in 2015 and should be able to get right back on track with him this week. He is my Start of the Week at the TE position.

Delanie Walker (TEN; @ DET): The Lions were torn apart by the Dwayne Allen/Jack Doyle Colts tight end duo, meaning Walker should be in for a monster game on Sunday.

Sleeper- Kyle Rudolph (MIN; vs GB): Rudolph has a history of having games like he did on Sunday (8 catches, 65 yards) and then disappearing right after but I believe he will have another solid game against the Packers, especially if Shaun Hill remains at quarterback.


Sit:

Rob Gronkowski (NE; vs MIA): This is if he is even active. Gronk is one of the position’s most injury-prone players and that trend has continued into 2016, as he missed last week due to a hamstring injury. If he does play this week, I believe he will be on a snap count and will be ineffective, making him my Sit of the Week for the TE position.

Charles Clay (BUF; vs NYJ): Clay’s inconsistent usage from 2015 continues into 2016, as the Bills don’t seem to know how to use him to his full potential. The Jets will most likely put a lot of focus on him tonight (especially if Watkins is inactive), so leave him on your bench.


Defense/Special Teams

Start:

Seahawks (@ LA): The Rams offense just got shut out by the 49ers defense. The 49ers. One more time, the 49ers. The Seahawks are my no-brainer Start of the Week for the DST position, and you’re crazy if they aren’t yours.

Jets (@ BUF): The Jets will have a great matchup on Thursday Night Football against a Bills defense that accumulated less than 200 yards last week. They're a great streaming option.

Sleeper- Jaguars (@ SD): Keenan Allen going down for the season is a huge loss for the Chargers but is a nice gain for the Jaguars DST this week. They have the potential for a big game and did just keep the Packers offense relatively in check, but they are still an inconsistent defense that could implode at any moment. My guess is that they will show up against the Chargers, so I’d take a gamble.

Sit:

Bengals (@ PIT): The Steelers just shredded a pretty good Redskins defense on Monday night, and the Bengals defense has regressed a bit since the end of the 2015 season. As I would do with any DST facing the Steelers, I’d keep them on the bench. They are my Sit of the Week at the DST position.

Ravens (@ CLE): The matchup seems great on paper but I believe that Josh McCown will be able to keep the Browns from having a terrible game. The Ravens have a pretty bad defense and are only worth considering because of the matchup, so it is best to keep the unit out of your lineup.
