Odell Beckham made his return Monday night. He’s a must start from here on out. Michael Crabtree continues to be a very good start and Sam Bradford’s health affects the Vikings receivers.
Le’veon Bell hasn’t been putting up the numbers owners want. That should all change this week in Chicago. Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson could both be solid plays this week. Bilal Powell could be in for a strong week 3 also. Look for Zeke Elliott to bounce back after a disastrous game in Denver
The position is getting thinner and it’s only week 3. Rob Gronkowski should be good to go after a groin injury scare. Greg Olsen has hit the short term IR and you may need to fill-in while he’s out. Jason Witten has been Dak Prescott’s go-to guy with 22 targets. He’s still available in many leagues. David NJoku looked good in week 2 catching 3 of 4 targets with a score. His role will build. Evan Engram has been a solid addition to the struggling Giants offense.
Brady lit it up in New Orleans as expected. He heads back home to take on Houston. The Texans defense is good but their lack of offense will give Brady many opportunities to score. Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford will face of in what could be a high scoring game.
Diggs and Thielen should have a great 2017. Both exploded in week 1 and will have a test on the road in Pittsburgh on a short week. Brandin Cooks faces his old team in New Orleans. He and teammate Chris Hogan could both be in for big weeks. Dez Bryant and Alshon Jeffery both draw tough match-ups.
A lot of rookie stepped up in the first week of the season. They should all be back making impacts again this week. Rankings based on 1/2 point PPR.
Jacksonville came out and showed their defense is for real this season. They are a must grab if they’re still available. The Rams crushed the Colts and it looks like they will get star defensive tackle Aaron Donald back this week. Their competition will be better this week but they should still be a good start.
The Tight End position was pretty disappointing last week. Austin Hooper had a couple big catches and that’s promising because Atlanta has needed someone to step up. Hold onto him and let’s see if it sticks. Last week he was literally wide open twice. But if Ryan keeps targeting him things could get interesting. Don’t panic yet, just keep playing your guys. Cameron Brate is back from having the forced bye week and faces the Bears who Hooper had his big plays against.
Sam Bradford and Alex Smith were week one stars. Tom Brady and Drew Brees face-off in would could be a shootout. Let’s take a look who may lead the way in week two.
Heading into week one it was a few rookies and a couple vets made impacts. Don’t panic yet and make a bunch moves because you lost. Teams and players can take a week or two to get into the groove. If a player you own has a track record of success, don’t dump them for the flavor of the week.
