If you tuned into last week’s primer, you’ll know that the beginning of the season began the right way with large amounts of New England schadenfreude, which is pretty much the best kind of schadenfreude if you’re into that whole German thing. And I only mention this not as another opportunity to give my best to the Northeast (well…), but to segue into Week 2, where once again, things are starting off right (depending on how much you enjoy Skyline Chili) with the Cincinnati Bengals already in full playoffs mode. I’m not sure firing your offensive coordinator (and quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor, pew pew!) after your second game is the best thing to do, only because any time previously two weeks ago would have been gajillion times better. If the Bengals organization went into this season saying “Gee, Ken Zampese (and Bill Lazor, pew pew!) sure seems like he’s right on the cusp of something awful or something great. We’ll just gauge where he’s at on the awful-to-great scale on a week-to-week basis…” then maybe the actual problem is Mike Brown and the Bengals front office. And that Andy Dalton is a ginger…

Here’s your updated Razzball Fantasy Football Rankings for Week 2 (STD, Half-PPR, PPR, IDP) including our Staff Consensus, player updates, and an opportunity to ask those all so important roster questions to myself, MB, and Zach in the comment section!

Last week my six start selections scored 99 fantasy points. That includes one of whom scored 0 points. Don’t look at me — look at Hunter Henry. That’s on him. How did my ‘sit’ selections do? 51 total points. That included a bold pick of Ezekiel Elliott who the Giants held to an average of 11 fantasy points in 2016. Elliott netted 18 fantasy points. What does it all mean? I’m a great lucky guesser.

If making week 1 picks is difficult because you don’t have any real in-season data from which to make your predictions, week 2 is nigh impossible because you have some fluke games like the Bengals being shutout in week 1 only to lay another turd on Thursday night against the Texans. The same Texans who in week 1 only scored 7 points against the first place Jaguars! What’s a fantasy football prognosticator to do?!

Over the years, I probably haven’t been as active with my Rest of Season Rankings as my peers. The simple reason is: I dislike shoot-from-the-hip reactions, and not that ROS Rankings are that, but they are certainly a tool for that. I’m fairly conservative (not really suffering from economic anxiety though) in terms of the first month. But sometimes I wonder if that’s too slow a reaction time in Fantasy Football. I don’t think we’re sitting here waiting for an exact number of games, and one complete football season will never offer a large enough sample size to draw concrete data from, so this year I’m giving in and going ahead and releasing our Rest of Season Rankings here in Week 2. While I still think a wait-and-see approach for most teams is the right way to go, I’m also empathetic to all the David Johnson and Allen Robinson owners out there who will be needing to do a bit triage work on their respective teams. So in that regard, here are our Rest of Season Rankings, which will be updated every Thursday from here on out, unless there’s a case of breaking news or Josh Gordon gets reinstated. Whichever comes first…

What’s going on everybody,! Hopefully you all had a better Week 2 than I did. Granted I won some leagues, but I did expect some huge games from players that really let me down. I’ll tell you who had a great week though…

Rudy and the Tools! I said it a few times during my rankings post, if you are waiting to subscribe to our fantastic season-long and DFS tools, you are simply wasting money. If Week 1 is any indication, and I think it is, this should be a huge year for Rudy and the rest of the gang here at Razzball. And if it is going to be a huge year for us, why shouldn’t it be a huge year for you guys as well?

Well without further ado, let’s get into some Razzball certified picks for Week 2, with some DFS knowledge at the very end thanks to our great lineup optimizers. Let’s get to it!

Note: Projections are based off of standard scoring leagues.

No way dude, my league is so crazy deep, my boy Peter drafted Le’Veon bell when he was still in college… Yeah, well my boy Jimmy drafted Melvin Gordon during his Junior year of high school…No way man, my girl Cindy drafted Aaron Rodgers after going to his 7th birthday party… Not even close, my boy Dave drafted Antonio Brown after seeing his ultrasound pictures.

Everyone in their league either knows someone who “got that guy way before he hit it big”.  If you don’t know, him, congratulations, you are him.  Most owners just need to hit it big once, and can ride out an entire season, or multiple, based on that success.  Given a standard 10 or 12 team league, in which you are already drafting 2 or 3 premier players, hitting it big on 1 or 2 sleepers puts you in contention every year.

But there are some of you out there that are gluttons for punishment.  You know who you are, you 18 team, AFC only, starting 2 QB, 3 RB, 2 TE, and 4 Defenses.  Those of you starting practice squad players hoping for a half-time call up.  You are monsters, heathens, and abominations.  And I love you.

This post space will be dedicated to monitoring those low percentage players that are primed to take your deep-league teams to the promised land.  I will try to focus on players that can contribute now, and/or players that have the potential to help down the road.

Short, simple, and to the point: here are some players that are, on average, owned in less than 3% of league’s, that may have a chance to help you out this week…

Welcome to Week 2! I wish I could say our rankings did well during Week 1, but the truth of the matter is, I actually have no idea how they did. NO ONE DOES. Before I go on an existential tangent (no one has no idea about anything really! Time is a flat circle maaaaaan…), as many of our readers know, we’ll be adding our weekly results above, but apparently this week, we’ll have to settle with last years ranking accuracy results until FantasyPros releases their results. So until then, I’m going to pretend that we did the best, we’re all so beautiful, both physically and mentally, and that your mother is the most charming person I ever met. Just kidding, I’m the most charming person she’s ever met. There was so much charm, Russell Wilson dropped in with some magic water and said hello. Macklemore was there. So I guess I’m describing a nightmare. See what happens when I don’t get my results FantasyPros!

Alright, alright, Week 2 Rankings for Standard, Half-PPR, and PPR leagues are right after the jump!

[Jay’s Note: Accuracy was released on 9/15 after these rankings and lede were posted, and the results have been updated above!]

What a Week 1! Everyone is in full freakout mode. Seriously, during my yearly check-up why was the doctor so concerned with the amount of illicit materials I ingest and not the amount of heartache I suffer from fantasy football? But I would like to use this opportunity not just to say calm the fluff down, but to remind you that this week brings hope. Whether you got skunked by a Hunt owner or got beat by a ball hair, a win this week puts you back at even. Don’t go making moves that you are going to regret later on in the season because you are 0-1. Likewise, guys will suck Week 1 and be bosses in Week 2. And Kareem Hunt could put up a stat line like Leveon Bell and get knocked off the proverbial pedestal. Football is an ebb and flow. Yin and yang. Lamb and tunafish… You know, natural dichotomies and whatnot. But enough with the philosophical discussion. I’m back with an extended version of streamers for your Week 2 consideration. As always, I use Yahoo ownerships and target players that are owned in 65% of leagues or less. Let’s go Snoop-a-loop, bring your green hat!
