NFL Week 2 Fantasy Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em

Posted by in Fantasy Football on September 18th, 2009 | Comment »


1.) LaDanian Tomlinson — Not a good sign for fantasy owners in week 1.  L.T. suffers a bum ankle.  He’ll likely sit out and even if he plays, he’s not worth starting againt the Ravens defense.

2.) Anthony Gonzalez — Could miss up to 8 weeks with a knee injury.  I hope you didn’t reach too high for him.

3.) Donovan McNabb — The Eagles haven’t ruled him out yet, but the cracked ribs may keep him out against the Saints.  Keep an eye on his status.  Kevin Kolb is likely available and could have a big day for the Eagles if he’s asked to play.

4.) Vincent Jackson — Got off to a great start with 56 yards and a TD against the Raiders.  This week he’ll have to face the Ravens and could be shut down.

5.) Pierre Thomas — Will likely continue to sit while Mike Bell gets the carries for the Saints.  In any event, he’ll be facing the Eagles, who don’t give up many yards on the ground.


1.) Thomas Jones — The Jets will run the football this season.  With 100 yards and 2 TDs, he’s giving Rex a reason to keep Washington off the field and keeping him on.  With Jerod May for the Pats out, the match up looks favorable.  Pats struggled to contain the Bill’s Fred Jackson last week.

2.) Correll Buckhalther — Will get the majority of Denver’s carries with Knowshon still trying to recovery from an ankle injury (I believe).  He’s at home against the Browns who ranked in the bottom of the league against the run last season and gave up 255 rushing yards to the Bengals last week.

3.) Darren McFadden — McFadden was under the radar in a lot of fantasy drafts.  Sometimes he wasn’t even going until the 5th round.  Utilize him this week against the Chiefs, who always struggle against the run and surrendered 198 yards to the Ravens last week.

4.) Ray Rice — Had a beautiful game last week against the Chiefs racking up over 100 yards and a TD.  The Chargers struggled against the Raiders run game so another performance like last week’s looks like it’s in the cards.

5.) Santana Moss — He might have disappointed you last week against the Giants.  Look for a big game against the Rams.

6.) Justin Gage — Looks like Kerry Collins go-to guy.  A dependable receiver with 7 receptions, 78 yards against the Steelers.  Now he’ll have a weaker defense — the Texans.

7.) Steve Smith — Not the Panthers Steve Smith, but the Giants Steve Smith.  6 receptions and 80 yards last week.  The Cowboys gave up a lot of yards to the Bucs passing game and they have some CB issues.  With Plax gone and Hakeem Nicks out with an injury, Steve Smith has become Eli’s favorite target.

8.) Carnell Williams — Looks like he’s A-OK from the injury.  With 97 yards and an impressive 7.5 YPC average against the Cowboys, he should continue to roll against the Bills.
