Is your fantasy team starting to make you feel like this?
It’s getting a little rough out of there after only one week of play. So how about we get to a better place in Week 2?
For the most part, you should stick to your guns this week and see if your team rises into the fantasy juggernaut you thought you drafted in Week 2, but there are a few situations worth worrying about.
Matchups That Scare Me This Week:
Michael Vick vs. Ravens. As bad as Vick looked against the Browns, this game could be even worse. He’s probably better than he showed in Week 1, but when is he going to be that guy again? I think you’re stuck starting him if you drafted him as an elite option, but brace yourself.
Chris Johnson vs. Chargers. I’m not sure if it’s his instincts or his offensive line, but it’s looking like another looooong year for Chris Johnson owners. The Chargers slowed down Darren McFadden in Week 1 and could easily keep Johnson at bay. Chances are he’s another player you just have to start because of where you had to draft him, and we’ll just have to hope he finds his rhythm in Week 2.
Trent Richardson vs. Bengals. It’s tough to be a Brown right now. That’s about all you can say.
Michael Turner vs. Broncos. I’m not alone in doubting Turner, and a Denver no huddle attack led by Peyton Manning should force the Falcons into a hurried no huddle of their own. Turner won’t do much for you this week unless he finds the end zone. Jacquizz Rodgers is the Atlanta running back to own this season, but he probably needs another week or two to ripen.
For a more upbeat look at starts and sits for Week 2, I’m throwing it to Footballguys TV.
Good luck…and avoid the milk this Sunday.
