Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers–8:20PM (THURS)
Sit–Greg Jennings, WR (GB)
Reason–Jennings did not practice on Tuesday and is considered questionable for Thursdayâ€™s game against the Bears. With plenty of wide receivers to choose from, expect the Packers to let Jennings fully heal and sit out this week, so be sure to have him on your bench.
Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills–1:00PM
Start–C.J. Spiller, RB (BUF)
Reason–With Fred Jackson out at least three weeks, Spiller steps in and will take the bulk of the carries for the Bills. The Chiefs defense allowed 84 rushing yards and one touchdown in Week 1 against the Falcons, which means Spiller should be able to be productive enough to start this week as long as he racks up the carries.
New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers–1:00PM
Start–Lance Moore, WR (NO)
Reason–Moore was targeted 10 times in Week 1â€™s loss to the Redskins hauling in six catches for 120 yards and a touchdown. With Robert Meachem out of town Moore has stepped up and it appears quarterback Drew Brees has taken a liking for him. The Panthers were able to hold the Buccaneers passing game in check last week, but they are now as high-powered as the Saints, so expect a nice game from Moore this week.
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals–1:00PM
Sit–Trent Richardson, RB (CLE)
Reason–The Bengals defense was embarrassed on Monday night when the Ravens put up 44 points against what was supposed to be a promising defensive group. They will likely force rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden to pass the ball, which if it is anything like last week, they will have success against the pass. It was nice to see Richardson was the main running back in Week 1, but expect similar production this week as the Bengals stack up the box against the run.
Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts–1:00PM
Start–Reggie Wayne, WR (IND)
Reason–Wayne was targeted a team-high 18 times in Week 1 and appears to have developed great chemistry with Andrew Luck. He finished the week with nine catches for 135 yards in Week 1â€™s loss to the Bears and this week gets another solid matchup when the Colts face off against the Vikings. The Vikings were ranked near the bottom of the league last season against the pass, which should mean solid production from Wayne.
Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars–1:00PM
Start–Owen Daniels, TE (HOU)
Reason–Daniels was one of the most productive tight ends in Week 1 when he finished with four receptions for 87 yards in the Texans blowout of the Dolphins. The Jaguars gave up five receptions for 67 yards to Kyle Rudolph last week, which should translate into a good game for Daniels as long as the game stays close.
Arizona Cardinals at New England Patriots–1:00PM
Sit–Ryan Williams, RB (ARI)
Reason–Williams had a rather unproductive Week 1 against the Seahawks and this week shouldnâ€™t be much different. The Cardinals offensive line had a hard time blocking for the run against the Seahawks last week and that will likely be the same case against the Patriots this week. This game has the potential to be a blowout, so expect Williams to have minimal impact in this matchup.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants–1:00PM
Start–Vincent Jackson, WR (TB)
Reason–The Giants defense gave up over 300 yards through the air against the Cowboys in Week 1 and this week might not be much better. Jackson has yet to connect with quarterback Josh Freeman on a regular basis, but in this favorable matchup this could be there breakout game together. Start Jackson with confidence this week.
Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins–1:00PM
Start–Carson Palmer, QB (OAK)
Reason–Palmer looked great in his season debut on Monday night in the Raiders new West Coast offensive scheme going 32-for-46 for 297 yards and one touchdown. The Raiders are passing the ball A LOT now and that will only help Palmerâ€™s production. The Dolphins secondary is suspect, so look for him to exploit their weaknesses and finish with solid production.
Baltimore Ravens at Philadelphia Eagles–1:00PM
Sit–Michael Vick, QB (PHI)
Reason–Vick had a terrible game in Week 1 against the Browns throwing four interceptions and looked totally confused on the field. This week he is matched up against the Ravens defense, who has gotten old, but can still give opposing quarterbacks fits with their pass rush. Vick doesnâ€™t handle pressure well, so expect him to make mistakes once again as he tries to do more than he is capable of doing.
Washington Redskins at St. Louis Rams–4:05PM
Start–Alfred Morris, RB (WAS)
Reason–Head Coach Mike Shanahan has anointed Morris as the Redskins No. 1 running back for the foreseeable future after a breakout game in Week 1. He was given 28 carries last week despite having both Roy Helu and Even Royster active. This week the Redskins face off against the Rams who gave up two rushing touchdowns in Week 1, so the matchup is definitely favorable enough to role with Morris once again.
Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks–4:05PM
Sit–Russell Wilson, QB (SEA)
Reason–The Cowboys revamped secondary looked solid against the Giants in Week 1, which has been a thorn in their side the last few seasons. Despite playing at home in Week 2, Wilson will likely have tough time through the air, so expect the Seahawks to try and win this game on the ground suing Wilson as a leader rather than a thrower.
Tennessee Titans at San Diego Chargers–4:25PM
Sit–Kenny Britt, WR (TEN)
Reason–Britt will be reinstated for Week 2 after being suspended last week over off field issues. Britt is recovery from a knee injury, which will likely limit his snaps until he is fully healthy. For now owners should keep him on the bench until he shows the durability to become an everyday starter once again.
New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers–4:25PM
Sit–Shonn Greene, RB (NYJ)
Reason–Despite rushing for 94 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 against the Bills, Greene is not a good start for Week 2. He rushed the ball 27 times to get those 94 yards and if you do the math, itâ€™s less than four yards-per-carry. If he rushes the ball that many times against the Steelers that average will go down significantly, so if you have other options at running back go that route.
Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers–8:20PM
Sit–Kevin Smith, RB (DET)
Reason–Not much needs to be said about this matchup besides that it is a terrible one for the Lions running game. The 49ers defense looked great against the run in Week 1 and it appears it has carried over from last season, so expect Smith to have a tough night in Week 2.
Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons–8:30PM (MON)
Start–Jacob Tamme, TE (DEN)
Reason–Tamme looked great in Week 1 against one of the better defenses in the league hooking up with quarterback Peyton Manning five times for 43 yards and one touchdown. This week the Broncos are matched up against a defense that is suspect against the tight end and who gave up a touchdown to their opposing tight end last week.
