Fantasy Football Week 2

Have a dilemma at RB/WR? Can’t figure out which player to start? Leave your question in the comment section and we will hook you up with the right answer!

If we have given you a suggestion as to who you should play, please reply on Monday or Tuesday and let us know what you did and if it worked!

Fav QB Matchup – Aaron Rodgers @ Panthers – Cam Newton will not want to remember this game as he goes 3 and out nearly every possession.  That leaves Aaron Rodgers plenty of time to find his receivers and light up the score board in a lopsided win. 
  • 308 yards, 2 TDs is nice but could have been better.

Fav RB Matchup – Shonn Greene vs Jacksonville – Even though the Jags beat the Titans last week, they are in for a long season.  Greene and Sanchez should have no trouble walking the ball down the field.  The Jets should return to the run and Greene could easily rack up 100 yards in this game, and probably match his season total in TDs from last season…..2.
  • A 32-2 beat down of the Jags lead to a mediocre day for Greene.  He only took his 16 carries 49 yards, but a TD saved his fantasy day.

Fav WR Matchup Greg Jennings @ Panthers – If Aaron Rodgers is having a field day, Greg Jennings will be the benefitiary.  Jennings will put the team on his back.  He will do it for Green Bay.  The Cardinals last week put up over 300 passing yards on just 18 completions, with longs of 70(Doucet), 48(King) and 34(Fitzgerald).
  • Jennings was targeted a team high 8 times, but only caught two balls.  Luckily a TD saved his fantasy day.

Fav TE Matchup Jimmy Graham vs Bears – The Bears can still put a ton of pressure on QBs and Drew Brees is wise enough to avoid holding onto the ball.  Graham should see a lot of check downs, and should be able to out run the Bears LBs.  Matt Ryan threw for 319 yards(47 attempts) against the Bears last week, and TE Tony G was second on the team in targets(7).
  • 6 catches for 79 yards, Graham was second on the team in both Targets(7) and Receptions(6) behind only RB Darren Sproles.  He was also second on the team in yards behind Devery Henderson's 103 on just 3 catches

Fav DEF Matchup Pittsburgh Steelers vs Seahawks – Marshawn Lynch might run right through the Saints defense, but good luck running past a Jerome Harrison/Troy Polomalu tackle.  The Seahawks might not even have 150 total yards in this one.  Sacks will be easy to come by in this one.  Do not let last weeks debacle against the Ravens distract you.
