My Updated Week 2 Fantasy Rankings

With Adrian Peterson out after being arrested on charges of child injury, the Vikings chose to deactivate him. Our job is to figure out what that means for Week 2 Fantasy rankings, so I updated them accordingly.

Both Matt Asiata and rookie running back Jerick McKinnon are expected to see a lot more action this week against the Patriots, who allowed over 190 rushing yards in Week 1 to Miami.

Asiat…

Week 2 WR Rankings — Sponsored by SKYLLZONE

My Week 2 WR Rankings — Sponsored by @SKYLLZONE #Cardinals #Colts #NFL

Well, that was interesting. In Week 1, we saw just nine wide receivers post 100-yard receiving games, so where does that leave us with our Week 2 WR rankings?

While there are a few changes from last week, there aren’t too many risers and fallers. Matchups certainly dictate where we’re placing a lot of these wide receivers, but we’re also conscious of some players moving up and moving down the…

Daily Fantasy Football: Week 2 The Bargain Bin and Fanduel Cheat Sheet

Daily Fantasy Football: Week 2 The Bargain Bin and Fanduel Cheat Sheet

When it comes to Daily Fantasy Football each and every week is dramatically different. Players will disappoint in the biggest way (I’m looking at you Jamaal Charles) or exceed all expectations like Allen Hurns (110 yards and 2 touchdowns).Although I owned Hurns in my deep dynasty league and had to play him, I wasn’t considering him for daily in Week 1. I can’t say I knew he would have a great…

Week 2 TE Rankings — Sponsored by SKYLLZONE

Tight ends, as we’ve mentioned before, are similar to the quarterback position in that there are a lot of pretty good ones. These Week 2 TE rankings will prove that out, too, as you’ll likely see some good ones fall into the 20s one week after the opener.

The way tight ends are different than quarterbacks, though, is the fact that while there are many pretty good quarterbacks, there’s a definite…

Week 2 RB Rankings — Sponsored by SKYLLZONE

We learned an awful lot about the NFL running backs position in Week 1, but we also had just as many new questions arise. Our Week 2 RB Rankings hope to help solve some of those problems for you to either help you get to 2-0 or to help you get your first win … or to help you not tie?

The running back position in Baltimore is certainly the biggest question mark entering Week 2.

Considering Ray…

Josh McCown & How He Might Ruin Doug Martin, Vincent Jackson, and Mike Evans

Josh McCown & How He Might Ruin Doug Martin, Vincent Jackson, and Mike Evans

Doug Martin, Vincent Jackson, and Mike Evans: these are the players on the Buccaneers that most Fantasy owners thought they could count on, but what did most owners not count on?

Josh McCown.

McCown was bad in his first regular season start with the Buccaneers. So bad that the two-year, $10 million dollar contract he signed in the offseason already looks reprehensible.

How did Josh McCown get here?

Week 2 Defense Rankings — Sponsored by SKYLLZONE

Was your league like most Fantasy Football leagues in Week 1, where five of the top six scoring Fantasy Defenses were unowned in the first week of the season?

The Vikings, Texans, Titans, Lions and Eagles did their thing as Fantasy free agents, and now you’re wondering – how does this affect Week 2 Defense rankings?

Well, it doesn’t really affect them too much because you need to remember – you…
