One of the most crucial parts of playing fantasy football is playing the match-ups. Some players are matchup-proof; you are not going to sit Aaron Rodgers or Adrian Peterson. These are some fantasy football starts and sits for a week two to help you win you’re match-up this week
Fantasy Football Starts And Sits For Week Two
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is coming off a solid week one performance where he totaled 18 fantasy points. Now he has an even better matchup in week two vs the New Orleans Saints. Last year Manning threw for five touchdowns vs the Saints. The game should be a shootout between two of the most high-powered offenses in the NFL.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford came into the 2016 season as a sleeper. Since Jim Bob Cooter has taken over Stafford has thrown 23 touchdowns to only four interceptions. He is a solid play this week vs the Tennessee Titans.
Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy is coming off a decent week one game vs an improved Jacksonville Jaguars defense. This week he faces the Minnesota Vikings who he has had success against in his career. Lacy is a solid start in week two.
Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is coming off a decent week one matchup against the Denver Broncos. This week he has a better matchup vs the San Francisco 49ers who were a favorable matchup for running backs last season.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is averaging 10 targets per game over his last few games. Landry mostly plays in the slot position and is a solid play this week vs the New England Patriots.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has a solid matchup vs a banged up Indianapolis Colts this week. With Demaryius Thomas being injured Sanders should see more target in week two.
Cleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnidge is coming off of a very disappointing week one performance. Even though Barnidge played ninety percent of the Browns offensive snaps last week he produced zero fantasy points. With the quarterback change to Josh McCown, Barnidge should produce solid numbers this week.
Jacksonville Jaguars Tight end Julius Thomas had a solid week one with 12 fantasy points. He has a solid week two match up vs the San Diego Chargers. With their defense focusing on the Jaguars wide receivers Thomas should produce solid numbers in week two.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is coming off and average week one. Wilson totaled 15 fantasy points and also injured his ankle in the game. Wilson has been limited in practice all week and reports say he will play in week two. He has a decent matchup with the Los Angeles Rams but with his ankle injury, he is a risky play in week two.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott came into the season as one of the most hyped rookie quarterbacks this season. He showed he can move the ball but is more of a game manager than a superstar at this point. He has a decent matchup in week two against the Washington Redskins. With Josh Norman most likely shadowing Dez Bryant Prescott should be on your bench in week two.
Indianapolis Colts running back Frank Gore is coming off of a solid week one game where he totaled eight fantasy points. Gore has a very tough matchup vs the Denver Broncos defense in week two. The Broncos defense was very tough on running backs last season.
Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell is coming off a solid week one matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles where he posted 12 fantasy points. In week two he has the Baltimore Ravens defense who have been tough on running backs lately.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y Hilton had a solid week one where the total eight fantasy points. In week two Hilton will go up against Denver stout defense who has been very tough on wide receivers over the past two seasons.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is coming off of a terrible week one where he only had one catch for eight yards. In week two he is going up against the Washington Redskins and will most likely be shadowed by cornerback Josh Norman. While Dez is an elite talent he is a risky play in week two.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Austin Seferian-Jenkins had only one catch last week but it did go for a 30-yard touchdown. Jenkins is splitting snaps with the other tight ends and he is a risky play in week two against the Arizona Cardinals who have been tough on tight ends over the last few seasons.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham is still recovering from his patella attendant injury last season. With him, on a limited snap count, he is a very risky play in week two against the Los Angeles Rams.
