151 – Fantasy Football Start and Sit Recommendations to Win your Week 2 Matchup
Hello Heat Seekers welcome to Episode 151 of Sully’s 2 Cents Fantasy Football Podcast, Fantasy Football Start and Sit Recommendations to Win your Week 2 Matchup. I am your host; I am Rob Sullivan. The Sully’s 2 Cents Fantasy Football Podcast is a proud member of the RotoHeat family of podcasts.
Well Week 1 is in the books and as you listen to this episode, we are preparing our lineups for Week 2. Week 1 was in a lot of ways a strange week full of disappointing fantasy days. One word of advice RELAX.
One week is not a trend it’s a outcome. Do not overreact to a strange week. Think of it this way of Aaron Rodgers has a bad week in Week 6 are you going to worry about him in Week 7? Probably not, so don’t worry about him this week. By the way in Week 6 last season at Tampa Bay, Rodgers posted 5.8 points. The following week he went 23/34 with 4 TDs and scored 27.32 points. From Week 7-16 he averaged 25.42 points the most of any QB during that stretch. Get my point yet?
Good fantasy assets are good fantasy assets for a reason, they deliver you a quality start more often than not. Stay the course, trust your process. The odds that any of us go 14-0 this season are remote, and the reality is who cares, it’s the last fantasy matchup of the season you need to win, not the first.
Here are some key injures and news items to chew on when making you roster calls this week;
Players already ruled out include – Will Fuller, Josh Jacobs, Odell Beckham, Tyrell Williams. I may be missing a few so do what I do and check Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter’s tweets this evening and prior to game time.
Fuller being out may breath some like into Mike Gesicki this week, but its Jalen Waddle who I see getting a lift versus Buffalo and I like Myles Gaskin here as well.
Josh Jacobs being out helps Kenyon Drake and allows Jon Gruden to dust off Peyton Barber and roll him out there for early down work. I don’t like either against Pittsburgh this week, but in PPR, Drake should get you enough work in the passing game to be a flex type play.
OBJ sadly is out again, as this would have been an ideal matchup to fire him up. Houston is terrible don’t let the week 1 win fool you. In OBJ’s absence the public will move to Anthony Schwartz, and I will pivot to Donovan Peoples Jones. Schwartz has a slight hammy injury and DPJ actually played more snaps and ran more routes that Schwartz in Week 1.
Tyrell Williams being out saves you from starting him on Monday versus GB. Sit everyone Detroit not named Swift, Williams and Hockenson.
For those looking for my Thursday Night start/sits I post an article every Wednesday focused on that game and I drop an article for Monday Night’s matchup on Sunday. This pod focuses on the Sunday slate but I will refer to Monday from time to time.
Good luck in Week 2 Heat Seekers, bring home the W.
