Sit/start fantasy football advice, Week 2

Each week we cover not obvious start or sits in the fantasy football world

Nick Laham

Each week in this space I will review players who are ranked outside the top 10 for qb's and Te's and top 20 for Wr's in the weekly ESPN rankings on who I think will flourish and who will disappoint this upcoming week. I do not review those ranked higher since they are probably highly drafted and unable to be benched. Last week was a pretty good week, I went 7-3 in the Play them and 4-3 in the Bench them. Let’s get to this week;

Play Them;

Eli Manning (13) – Much was lost in the Manning explosion but the Denver pass defense was shaky at best, Eli and company at home should have a great day especially with the RB situation.

Carson Palmer (18) – He looked solid against the Rams and gets a shaky Lions pass defense.

DeAngelo Williams (25) – He had over 100 yards and 20 touches and gets a Bills defense that was getting torched on the ground until all the fumbles.

Ronnie Hillman (48) – Fox came out and called Hillman as their most explosive talent at RB, with his match up, he should get you 10 points.

Julian Edelman (20)- He will be Brady’s #1 target and should have a quality WR2 type of game, start him without worrying.

Cecil Shorts (24) – He had a quiet game but did get 11 targets and now Henne is at QB who he shined with last year.

Dwayne Bowe (25) – The Giants receivers were running free and this week Bowe is licking his chops,

Mike Williams (26) – The Saints leaky pass defense should be a joy fro the Bucs receivers this week.

Golden Tate (41)- The 49ers defense always starting against the run but somewhat shaky last week in the secondary.

Brandon Myers (11) – The Ravens tight ends ran free last week and Myers had a nice game so I would expect a top 8 day.

Bench Them

Tony Romo (12) – He is banged up, on the road and facing a tough secondary, I expect a few turnovers.

Frank Gore (20)- There are a very few amount of Rb’s, I would play at Seattle and Gore is not one of them.

Lamar Miller (22)- I did not like what I saw out of him as well as Thomas getting the goal line touches.

BenJarvus Green Ellis (28) – He looked slow, was successful on only 1/3 goal line touches and now gets a great Pittsburgh run defense.

Antonio Brown (23) – He had a solid 1st game but in non PPR league does not get enough yards nor TD’s to warrant a start against a tough pass defense at home.

Torrey Smith (29) – Joe Haden shut down Wallace last week and gets a similar receiver this week and I am expecting the same.

Roddy White (32) – He was a decoy last week with his high ankle sprain and an injury that continues to linger.

Greg Jennings (36) – His QB makes him unplayable especially on the road in Chicago.

Kyle Rudolph (14)- He has the same issue as Jennings, there are better options out there for this week.
