Fantasy Football Week 2: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em

There’s a good chance you already hate your fantasy team and are looking to make some changes for Week 2. I’m right there with you. Here are some candidates with some intriguing matchups, for better or worse, that may cause you to consider tinkering with your lineup for the second week of the season.

QUARTERBACK

Andrew LuckStart: Andrew Luck vs. Miami

The Dolphins made Brandon Weeden look like, well, Brandon Weeden in Week 1 as the Browns quarterback completed just 26 of 53 passes. Luckily for the Colts, Andrew Luck isn’t Weeden. Indianapolis only threw the ball 23 times in the first week and the more comfortable that Luck gets with new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and his pro offense, the more you could see the young quarterback unleashed. Adding to his value is that Luck picked up nine points with his legs. If he gets flushed out of the pocket thanks to the Miami pass rush, he could certainly match that total on the ground in Week 2.

Sit: Matthew Stafford vs. Arizona

When it’s clicking, the Detroit pass offense is one of the best in the league. But despite putting up 357 yards against the Vikings in Week 1, the Lions’ aerial attack wasn’t quite in sync. Plus, the Cardinals have one of the best corners in the game in Patrick Peterson, while Detroit really has only one viable fantasy receiver in Calvin Johnson. If Peterson limits Johnson like Minnesota did in Week 1, it could be a difficult day for Matthew Stafford.

 

RUNNING BACK

Start: BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs. Pittsburgh

The Law Firm might be a guy that you question at in your RB2 or flex slot, but with the injuries that the Steelers suffered in the opener, namely to linebacker Larry Foote, this matchup might be a favorable one for Green-Ellis. Fourteen carries for 25 yards isn’t necessarily impressive for BenJarvus in the Bengals’ opener against Chicago, but he still found the end zone, and is a good bet to do so again Monday night against Pittsburgh.

Sit: Frank Gore vs. Seattle

The Packers bottled up Frank Gore to the tune of  just 44 yards on 21 carries, and the task doesn’t get any easier this week as the 49ers travel to Seattle. Gore certainly has ability, but so do many of the other ball-carriers for San Francisco, including quarterback Colin Kaepernick and running back Kendall Hunter. Gore should still get the bulk of the carries, but it would be very surprising if he had a great day. If you have other solid RB2 options, they are worth considering.

 

WIDE RECEIVER

Start: Dwayne Bowe vs. Dallas

Dwayne Bowe only tallied 30 receiving yards on four receptions in the Chiefs’ Week 1 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but there is no need to worry about him long-term. He’s still a high-quality wideout who will begin to put up numbers, starting Sunday against the Cowboys. Eli Manning threw for 450 yards against Dallas this week and with Alex Smith and Andy Reid making their Arrowhead Stadium debuts, I expect an offensive display that will heavily feature Bowe.

Sit: Harry Douglas vs. St. Louis

This isn’t so much an indication of the Rams’ pass defense, but rather a reminder not to overreact to Week 1. Sure, Harry Douglas had 93 yards against the Saints, but be mindful of two things: first, it was New Orleans and second, Roddy White and Julio Jones are both still on the roster. White should be that-much-closer to 100 percent after injuring his ankle, so starting Douglas over a more reliable receiver might be a mistake.

  5. Ein hervorragender Fellsattel zeichnet sich vor allem dadurch aus, dass der Fellsattel genauso gut für das Pferd und für den Reitenden sein kann. Dieser Faktor muss immer der ausschlaggebende Faktor beim Kauf des Sattels sein. Nun kann man ins Detail gehen und genaue Merkmale der verschiedenen Typen bedenken. Selbstverständlich spielt auch an dieser Stelle das Alter eine entscheidende Rolle. Für die Kleinen eignen sich vor allem anti-rutsch Sattel. Bei Erwachsenen dürfte jener Punkt fast missachtet werden. Ebenso maßgeblich ist darüberhinaus der Komfort des Sattels. Jetzt bietet sich vor allem Lammfell an. Dieser Stoff oder das Fell ist besonders soft und auch schonend für das Pferd. Ein Fellsattel aus Lammfell ist mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit die erste Wahl die ein Pferdeliebhaber haben dürfte. Jedoch ist dieser Fellsattel unter anderem in Sachen Kosten immens höher als Alternativen.
