Week 1 is in the books. JD Bunkis and I bring another episode for you where we hold ourselves accountable for our Week 1 picks, provide more predictions for Week 2 and answer some listening questions.
fantasy football week 2
Week 1 is in the books. 16 teams are undefeated. 16 teams are winless.
You probably lost your opening week fantasy game because you tried to get cute with your roster…or you started Andrew Luck.
It’s important to note that even though running backs seem to get drafted higher than every other position every year, only two running backs were in the top 10 for scoring in week 1. It seems like the value positions are switching from running back to wide receiver and quarterback.
Who knew that quarterback was an important position in football?
I’m starting this weekly column to take a rational look back at the week that was in fantasy football.
What I’m planning on doing is not giving you sleepers or irrational predictions, but rather taking a look at who did not live up to expectations.
Week 1 is now in the books, and thus it’s time to over react to all the players that over- and under-performed this week.

If there is one word of advice I could give you before week two of your fantasy league this year, it would be this: “Don’t overreact. Panic time doesn’t hit until week 4.”
Every player is due to have a bad week or two; and luckily for Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson owners, they already got one of theirs out of the way.
Does that mean that we should take nothing from week one? Of course not. It’s possibly time to drop Colts’ players not named Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark.
But don’t go scrambling for Cam Newton just yet.
