|Fantasy Football: Week 2 Starts and Sits||09.14.12 at 2:34 pm ET|
Here are Rotobahn’s starts and sits for week two. A quick word on how we put these together. We look for the players that are on the edge of lineups as much as we can. We try to stay away from the obvious plays. If any of these picks creates a tougher decision for you, please feel free to check out our complete player rankings at Rotobahn.com.
Andrew Luck, Colts vs Vikings
He’s not a QB1, meaning he won’t be ranked in our top QB’s, but we like him if you are in need. Blaine Gabbert lit them up a bit in Week One and Luck should give you serviceable numbers as well. Go ahead and use him if you don’t have a stud at the position.
Matt Schaub, Texans @ Jaguars
He looked to be in good form in Week One and we think he’ll post good numbers against the Jaguars. He’s got plenty of options and is buoyed by a quality ground game, so he is very tough to go after via the blitz. The Texans are perhaps the most balanced team in football.
Christian Ponder, Vikings @ Colts
For deep leaguers who are searching for an option, Ponder could help you this week in a very nice matchup. The Vikes have the ground game to keep the Colts’ pass rush honest. Ponder should post solid numbers in Week Two.
Michael Turner, Falcons vs Denver
He’s being trashed just about everywhere, and quite honestly we are not big fans, but this is a week he will be needed. The Falcons must keep Denver honest or Matt Ryan will be under fire. You can’t throw deep without time, so we expect the Falcons to try and run often with hopes of keeping Elvis Dumervil and and Von Miller off balance. Turner should be a decent RB2 … so don’t bench Turner unless your alternative is strong.
Trent Richardson, Browns @ Bengals
He was small in Week One but they will need him here, and he’s the focal point of the offense. We expect numbers worthy of a RB2 play or at least a flex play. Richardson is a very talented back.
Vincent Jackson, Bucs @ Giants
The Giants have issues in the secondary and they have nobody who can handle V-Jax. We expect them to make big plays off of play-action and we also expect them to fall behind and throw for four quarters. He’s a solid play as a WR3 or even aWR2.
Robert Meachem, Chargers vs Titans
He made a big play last week and in this matchup, he could make a few of them. With Vincent Brown injured, Meachem is assured of a large role in the offense. He’s a very reasonable option as a WR3.
Donald Jones, Bills vs Chiefs
He’s now a big part of their offense with David Nelson out for the year and Stevie Johnson nursing a groin injury that is affecting his production. Jones is going to get looks and make for a solid flex option in deeper formats.
Mike Williams, Bucs @ Giants
It’s the same principle as with Jackson. They will need to throw and he will have good matchups against the Giants’ corners. He is a solid flex option for those who play in deep leagues. He scored in week one.
Jermaine Gresham, Bengals vs Browns
It’s a good matchup and they will need him. We expect a solid bounce back from week one. The Browns will not be able to double him with AJ Green being the big priority.
Jacob Tamme, Broncos @ Atlanta
Manning will lean on his more familiar targets when the noise in the dome hits the higher decibels. We expect TE1 numbers from Tamme, who scored in week one.
Fred Davis, Redskins @ Rams
They will use him with Garcon banged up and we like the matchup as the Rams are weaker at safety than corner.
