Starters, Sitters, & Sleepers: Week Two
Every Sunday, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris will be bringing you their “expert” fantasy football advice as you look for the player that will give you the edge in your weekly matchup. Here are our week two selections.
Start: Mike Wallace: Wide Receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers: Expect nice production out of Wallace this week against the Jets. With no Revis Island Wallace should have smooth sailing.
Sitter: Kevin Ogletree: Wide Receiver, Dallas Cowboys: Don’t expect the huge game you saw out of Ogletree last week. He is the fifth option in the Cowboys offense and Dallas is historically bad in Seattle.
Sleeper: Lance Moore: Wide Receiver, New Orleans Saints: Nobody leaped and cheered when you drafted Lance Moore, but Moore has proven to be a viable option in New Orleans especially with Robert Meacham gone. More than likely Chris Gamble will be covering Marques Colston this week so look for Moore to get open in the Panthers soft secondary.
Start: Kevin Smith: Running Back, Detroit Lions: Detroit should have another good week against San Francisco, as I see a high scoring game. Hopefully you’ll see a touchdown, 80 yards, and 4+ receptions.
Sit: Kevin Ogletree: Wide Receiver, Dallas Cowboys: Don’t look for another two touchdown performance, as fantasy owners over-reacted by making him one of the most picked up free agents ever.
Sleeper: Santana Moss, Wide Receiver, Washington Redskins: I see a lot of points on the board from RGIII and the Skins, benefiting Moss. I would be shocked if he didn’t get into the end-zone against the Rams.
Start: BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Running Back Cincinnati Bengals: The Law Firm looked good last week against a stellar Ravens defense, racking up 91yards and a touchdown. The Bengals will use Green-Ellis as more of an every down back making him a must start through out the season. This week he gets the Cleveland Browns defense and quite frankly they are no Ravens.
Sit: Chris Johnson: Running Back, Tennessee Titans: CJ looked more like the CJ of last year as opposed to the CJ of 2010 in week one. This is very disappointing seeing as how in most drafts he was going in the first round. So if he wants to call himself CJ-2K, or CJ-1K, or C3PO I don’t really care he is not hitting my starting line up until he can prove that he can stay behind a block and pick up positive yardage.
Sleeper: Carson Palmer: Quarterback, Oakland Raiders: Last week the Raiders couldn’t get anything going on the ground and had to rely on Palmer’s arm as he accumulated 297 passing yards. The Raiders should be facing more of the same this week as Miami was quite stout against the run last week allowing Houston, who has a much better running game, only 83 yards on the ground. Look for Palmer to have a nice game here.
