Start of the Week –
Marquise Brown vs Houston Texans
Marquise Brown surprised me last weekend against the Browns, and I believe he will come to light again this week against the Houston Texans. Their defense allowed the ninth-most points to the receiver position last season and allowed two scores in last week’s game against the Chiefs. Honestly it would have been more too if Demarcus Robinson wouldn’t have dropped two easy touchdowns.
Allen Robinson vs New York Giants
While the deleting of everything Bears related is concerning to me, I fully believe Robinson is still a great player to play against the Giants. He wants to get paid, so he will want to prove himself. A match against the Giants is a great way to start after both JuJu and Diontae Johnson did well on Monday Night Football. Robinson should thrive with Trubisky throwing him the ball this week.
Michael Gallup vs Atlanta Falcons
Gallup was lost in the fold against the Rams, but I believe he will bounce back well in a game against the Falcons in which their defense was torched by Wilson and the Seahawks. I expect CeeDee Lamb and obviously Cooper to get their way as well, but Gallup should be a great option as a wide receiver in week two.
Julian Edelman vs Seattle Seahawks
Edelman didn’t put up the numbers last week as expected, but now he gets a great opportunity against the Seahawks who got torched by Matt Ryan and his receivers. Being the number one, Edelman should see plenty of volume in his matchup.
T.Y. Hilton vs Minnesota Vikings
I’ve personally never been a fan of T.Y. Hilton in fantasy since I started doing it, but he does have an exciting matchup against a Vikings defense that just let Davante Adams get over 100 yards and two touchdowns. It would be silly not to throw him in as flex starter at least for this contest.
Russell Gage vs Dallas Cowboys
Allen Lazard vs Detroit Lions
Scotty Miller vs Carolina Panthers
Sit of the Week –
Brandin Cooks vs Baltimore Ravens
Like I said, last week probably wasn’t the right play to make, and I don’t feel like this week is going to be any different against the Ravens. He’s nursing some kind of hamstring injury and that does not bold well facing the Ravens defense. Keep him out of your lineup.
D.K. Metcalf vs New England Patriots
Metcalf had a great start in week one, but a matchup against Stephon Gilmore and the Patriots does not bold well for the second year stud. They barely gave any Dolphins receiver room to go by. You could argue the use of Wilson’s deep ball, but that’s a big bet I wouldn’t want to take against this defense.
DeSean Jackson vs Los Angeles Rams
DeSean Jackson disappointed a lot of fantasy owners last week in a great matchup against Washington. Now he is going up against Jalen Ramsey; arguably the best corner in the NFL today. Yeah, I think I will pass based on his ability last weekend.
Jamison Crowder vs San Francisco 49ers
Crowder was able to get the Jets into not completely sucking last week against the Bills. However, I would not lean on him for any fantasy virtue this week against the 49ers. You can bet your money that Sam Darnold isn’t even going to have throw the ball before Nick Bosa sacks him like eight times.
Marvin Jones vs Green Bay Packers
The ability of Jones to succeed is largely dependent on the presence of Kenny Golladay in the lineup. Plus the Packers defense isn’t that awful at stopping wideouts. Jones also has had three receptions for 25 yards… in his last two games against the Packers. That’s not each game. That is them combined.
Robby Anderson vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Henry Ruggs III vs New Orleans Saints
Christian Kirk vs Washington Football Team
