Top 25 Quarterback Rankings
|Week 2 Ranking||Player||Week 2 Opponent||Week 2 Fantasy Projection|
There is no surprise to see Patrick Mahomes top the list this week, with a matchup against Oakland. While they shut down the Denver Broncos, this is obviously a different situation. Matt Ryan and Jared Goff had below average Week 1 performances, but are in bounce back spots against defenses that struggle against the pass. They are in shootout games, which is why Drew Brees jumped up a bit. Carson Wentz had a big week, and was someone I am high on coming into the year. It was a slow start for the Philadelphia offense against Washington, but they got going in the second half.
We can certainly establish Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott as strong options this week, and they were late round QBs heading into the year. Both Washington and Arizona have leaky secondaries and overall they are in a great spot. There are some middle of the field ranked quarterbacks in bounce back spots, but have been unreliable in terms of consistency.
Top 50 Running Backs Rankings
|Week 2 Ranking||Player||Week 2 Opponent||Week 2 Projected Fantasy Points (PPR)|
|7||Le'Veon Bell (Q)||CLE||21.6|
|22||Joe Mixon (Q)||SF||16.7|
Christian McCaffrey is coming off a monster Week 1, and gets another enticing matchup in Week 2. While the SF backs failed to get much going, this was a Buccaneers defense that allowed the 5th most fantasy points per game. Alvin Kamara gets the same matchup McCaffrey just got, and is in a strong spot. His PPR value is through the roof, and his touches were solid, he just missed out on getting that touchdown. Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott are in solid spots, and there might be some concerns about Elliot’s touches, but you are still going to start him anyway. They will ramp it up this week.
Chris Carson, Austin Ekeler, and Josh Jacobs make big jumps this week. With the injuries in Los Angeles, Ekeler has an extremely safe workload, especially in PPR formats. The Jacobs workload in Week 1 notches him up as well, and KC isn’t the most stout defense against the run, nor pass-catching backs. With the pass volume concern in Seattle, it is hard to get excited about some wide receivers, but we can get excited about Carson’s volume.
Top 50 Wide Receivers
|Week 2 Rankings||Player||Week 2 Opponent||Week 2 Projection (PPR)|
|7||Odell Beckham Jr.||@NYJ||20.4|
There isn’t much of a difference between the season long rankings and the wideouts for this week, however, we have some big movers. Keenan Allen jumps up to the number four spot given the big volume he will get given the absences of the others. Detroit’s pass defense isn’t bad, but Allen is an elite wideout, especially in PPR. With the Tyreek Hill out, Sammy Watkins makes a big jump as well. Tyrell Williams is in the same boat, as both the Raiders and Chiefs should put up some solid points.
The gap between Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs is pretty big this week, and the Vikings throwing ten passes last week was more because of the game script and how they want to run their offense. With a closer projected game, I would feel good about the Vikings as a whole compared to just their run game. One of the major jumps for me this week was D.K. Metcalf. He had a great week despite a limited passing offense in Seattle. The Steelers secondary isn’t something I mind targeting.
Top 25 Tight Ends Rankings
|Week 2 Ranking||Player||Week 2 Opponent||Week 2 Fantasy Projection (PPR)|
=The Darren Waller hype is for real, and the same goes for T.J. Hockenson. Waller has one of the best matchups for a tight end in Week 2. Kansas City allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends last season. Waller is going to be a big part of the passing game this week. Most of the top tight ends also get enticing matchups. Oakland allowed the fourth most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, and the Bengals were just a shade ahead allowing the third most. Both George Kittle and Travis Kelce already are must starts, but this is a week where they can really go off. If you are disappointed in the week with Jared Cook, the Rams allowed the 9th most fantasy points per game to tight ends, and Cook destroyed the Rams last season.
Top 25 Kickers
|Week 2 Ranking||Player||Week 2 Opponent||Projected Week 2 Fantasy Points|
Not much will change throughout the year with the top kickers. The goal is to target offenses that move the ball well, and might stumble in the red zone, but overall we want kickers that are on teams that put up points. Target the shootout games this week, or teams with the higher implied totals. That is the goal most weeks.
Top 25 Defense Rankings
|Rank||Team||Week 2 Opponent||Week 2 Fantasy Projection|
Baltimore and Chicago open up as the top defenses this week, as they take on less than stellar offensive opponents. New England is in the same boat going up against Miami. However, Chicago and Baltimore have historically produced more turnovers and sacks. With the Miami offensive line in the shape that it is in, it is a good spot to produce a ton of sacks. Cleveland wasn’t high early in the week, but with the injury news to the Jets, they have jumped the rankings to number four.
