Fantasy Football NFL Week 2: Studs http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-nick-foles-jersey , Duds, Sleepers, & Busts Welcome to the Week 2 Edition of Studs, Duds, Sleepers, & Busts.Week 1 Pick of the Week: Patrick Mahomes as a sleeper (28 standard points, t-3rd among QBs)Mahomes looks like the real deal. Fortunately I drafted him (and started him) over Big Ben in 3 different leagues last week and he was the difference maker in those line-ups.Week 1 Fail of the Week: Chris Hogan as a sleeper (2 standard points, t-84th among WRs)Did anyone watch this game? Can we confirm Hogan was actually in Foxborough on Sunday? Yikes.Year to Date Accuracy:5 of 12 correct (41.6%) As for the picks this week, I am going to switch it up slightly. Per the request of some feedback I got on Twitter, I’m going to add quantifiable criteria to each of the four categories so you can see how good (or bad) these picks are.Stud: A Stud, from here on out, will be defined as someone projected (via Yahoo standard scoring to finish within the top 6 at their position, who will, in fact, finish within the top 6 at their position. (Last week: 0-3) *Authors note: I thought this was the easy one was supposed to be easy to predict!!RB Alvin Kamara, NOIf the King of the Modern Haircut, James Conner, can put up 135 rushing yards, 57 receiving yards, and 2 touchdowns against the Browns, Alvin Kamara is going to have a field day. The consensus, #1 running back this week will likely finish there.WR Julio Jones, ATLAfter getting targeted 18 times in week 1, Julio is obviously still the offensive game plan for the Falcons. While a lot of top wide outs have favorable match-ups this week, Julio is set to dominate the Panthers. TE George Kittle, SFIf he’s not already, Kittle is a guy you need to add to your list of go-to fantasy tight ends. Players like Jordan Reed, Rob Gronkowski, and Greg Olsen are obviously excellent players when they’re on the field, but given the rash of injuries those players have seen over the past few years, its time to look elsewhere for reliable players. After facing a team with no tight ends (seriously, go ahead and tell me who the Jets starting tight end is without cheating... I’m waiting...) http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-corey-clement-jersey , the Lions are in for a treat.Dud: A Dud will be someone who, despite being ranked as a non starter in a 12 person league (QB2, RB3 or 4, WR3 or 4, TE2etc... ), is started over 75% of the time but will still finish as a non starter. (Last week: 1-3)QB Deshaun Watson, HOUFun fact, my computer doesn’t recognize the word “Deshaun” and the word it wants to replace it with is “sunshade”. Why is this relevant, you might ask? Because Watson has cooled off significantly since last year. The jig is up, as they say. Watson finished week 1 as the 22nd highest scoring quarterback and while he might move up the charts a little bit, there are better starting options out there. WR Larry Fitzgerald, ARZAny wide receiver who goes against the newly improved Rams defense should be given a lot of thought before starting. Similarly, any wide receiver who catches passes from Sam Bradford should be given thought. The combination of the two makes the long-time-reliable wide out a poor option in week 2. WR Golden Tate, DETMatt Stafford had one of his worst games as a starter in week 1 throwing 4 interceptions and just 1 touchdown. Unfortunately for Golden Tate, his production is heavily dependent on Mr. Stafford’s arm. Until said arm is functioning properly again, there are better starting wide outs on your bench.Sleeper:A Sleeper, is the opposite of a Dud. A player who is started in less than 75% of leagues who will finish ranked as a starter in a 12 person league. (Last week: 1-3)WR Nelson Agholor, PHIAs sung by the great band, Dr. Dog, “Oh Nellie, oh Nellie, oh Nellie, yeah”. Agholor didn’t gain many yards in week 1, but his target share was very promising. With Alshon Jeffery likely remaining out again in week 2, Agholor is a great value pick in DFS and will make for a great starter this week.QB Patrick Mahomes, KCChoo Choo! As long as I keep getting a whole cabin to myself, I’m not getting off of the Patrick Mahomes train. Even though most experts have been clamoring for the young quarterback since he was just an NFL Draft prospect, Mahomes is on the fast track to being a superstar in this league. RB Royce Freeman, DENAfter losing plenty of snaps to Phillip Lindsay in week 1, many Freeman owners find themselves questioning their decision to draft him. Fear not, as in week 1, Denver was simply sticking to the hot hand with Lindsay. Freeman is ready to eat against a Khalil-Mack-less Raiders defensive line and that’s exactly what he’ll do.Bust:A Bust will now be considered someone who is projected to finish within the top 6 as their position, but unlike a Stud http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-jalen-mills-jersey , will finish outside of the top 12 at their position. (Last week: 3-3)RB Saquon Barkley, NYGIt hurts to type this as a Penn State Alumnus, but Saquon did not look the part of a premier fantasy running back in week 1. This holds especially true in PPR leagues where Barkley’s 2 receptions for 22 yards were fairly useless. If you want to use anyone from the Giants this week, I’d look towards OBJ or Evan Engram in this close match up. QB Ben Roethlisberger, PITThere is no way Ben can be as bad in week 2 as he was in week 1, but I will never recommend that you start a player who was sacked 4 times, had 2 batted passed, 3 dropped passes, 3 interceptions, and 2 fumbles in the previous week. I’m sorry. AB is always a good choice given his explosive ability, but until Big Ben shows that he still has it, he is nothing more than a streaming option for me.RB Ezekiel Elliott, DALSimilar to Barkley above, Zeke’s game script does not look favorable to the young, ab-showing, ewok-looking running back. In a projected close game between two lesser opponents, the passing game will reign supreme. If you have Zeke on a year long team, you obviously have to start him, but for daily fantasy and deep PPR leagues, there might be better options. As always, I cannot cover every situation in one article so please get at me on twitter (@LeeSifford) or in the comments below with your specific roster questions.Josh Gordon traded to Patriots; Eagles reportedly weren’t interested The Philadelphia Eagles will not be acquiring Josh Gordon. The New England Patriots, who began the season with only three wide receivers on their 53-man roster, completed a trade with the Cleveland Browns on Monday afternoon. The Browns received a 2019 fifth-round draft pick in exchange for the 27-year-old pass catcher. If Gordon isn’t active for 10 games this year, the Browns will reportedly send a 2019 seventh-round pick back to New England. That condition helps mitigate the risk Gordon presents. Despite the Eagles’ need to add a new receiver, it appears Philadelphia was never really interested in Gordon. It’s a bummer to see the Eagles pass on an option that would’ve potentially helped them. Gordon’s hamstring is reportedly healthy enough to play despite straining his hamstring recently so he can make an immediate impact. With that said, Howie Roseman still has some options. One of those options could be impacted by the Patriots’ acquisition of Gordon. It was previously reported that Kenny Britt planned to re-sign with the Pats, but that might not be the case now. Maybe the Eagles will look into signing the free agent who had a career year with Mike Groh as his wide receivers coach in 2015. Or maybe the Eagles look to a familiar face in Jeremy Maclin, if he’s healthy.The Eagles have to do something. With it sounding like Alshon Jeffery won’t be back this week, the Eagles could be down to just Nelson Agholor, Kamar Aiken, Shelton Gibson, and DeAndre Carter at receiver. At least Carson Wentz will be back at quarterback. UPDATE: The Patriots are cutting Corey Coleman to make room for Gordon. Coleman signed with the Pats last week before his scheduled free agent visit with Philadelphia. Maybe the Eagles sign him now?
