Who to start/sit for week 2
by Mark Gram,posted Sep 13 2012 11:11AM
I don't know about my fellow fantasy footballers out there, but I'm glad to get week 1 out of the way.
The main problem with week 1 is that you can't get a good enough read from the pre-season to get a good feel about who might have a good opening week. A few examples:
DeAngelo Williams...-1 rushing yds, are you kidding me!?
Greg Jennings...8 points?
Anyway, week 2 is upon us and we've had a look at the players now. So here goes...
Robert Griffin III, Redskins. A very good gameplan, a Saints defense that looked lost, and a little bit of a ground game by A. Morris helped last week. With Washington playing home once again, this time against the Rams, look for another big day by the rookie QB.
Sit: Mark Sanchez, Jets. Everything went almost perfect for Sanchez and the Jets last week. Lets see how they do against a much better defense in Pittsburgh. A dose of reality is about to smack Sanchez in the face.
Start: Stevan Ridley, Patriots. Ridley was great in week 1 and now gets to face Arizona. Ride this horse until further notice.
Sit: Jonathan Dwyer, Steelers. Dwyer looked pretty stout last week for Pittsburgh. But he's missed a practice and has a few lingering injuries that may limit his carries. Also, they play a better defense this week (Jets).
Start: Randall Cobb, Packers. Man, did this guy look great in week 1. With Greg Jennings possibly out, Cobb may have even a BIGGER role vs the Bears. A MUST start.
Sit: Kevin Ogletree, Cowboys. Last week Ogletree had nine passes for 114 yards and two TDs. Not bad...but, Jason Witten is healthy this week and that should cut into Ogletree's playing time. Don't expect the same production from Ogletree this week.
Start: Jared Cook, Titans. I like this guy alot. And apparently, so does his QB. With K. Britt coming back, one has to think the middle should open up even more, allowing Cook to roam free.
Sit: Dennis Pitta, Ravens. Pitta brought it in Week 1, catching five passes for 73 yards and a TD. But there are plenty of mouths to feed on this team. Don't expect these numbers on a regular basis.
Start: Cincinnati Bengals. After watching the Browns flounder in week 1, with Brandon Weeden throwing four picks while completing only 12 passes, I have to think the Bengals are not going to make things any easier for the rookie QB.
Sit: Green Bay Packers. This unit is sooo overhyped. There are better defenses on the waiver-wire.
