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!

    HalfPPR

    Cobb or J. Rodgers

    Cobb has the slight edge in the rankings. I just have a gut feeling that Quiz is gonna light up the Bears D.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @kenly0: Cobb by a hair, but it’s close enough to go Quizz there for the upside.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      @kenly0: I’d go with Quizz by a lot

  2. Adam says:

    Half point PPR
    Who to start?
    Mariota or Palmer and CJA or J. Howard?

    Thanks!

      Jay says:

      @Adam: I have Palmer and CJA there.

    • MB

      @Adam: same as Jay

  3. Steve says:
    (link)

    Have Mariota without a bu. My WRs r Baldwin, k. Allen, d. Jackson, d. Parker, c. Coleman, k. Galloday. Should I drop Coleman or Galloday for Rivers and start him instead of Mariota? Or hold and stay with MM?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve: Naw, if it’s a standard 10 or 12 team, you’re fine with one QB. Rivers is ahead of him this week, but it’s close enough.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      @Steve: yeah hold off on dropping either of those guys

  4. Randy says:

    Mornin’ Jay,

    Jordy, Brandin Cooks, Tyreek Hill, and Fitz.

    Start 3/4 in a 14 team PPR

      Jay says:

      @Randy: I have it as Jordy, Cooks, and Fitz.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Randy: Surprised there’s no way to get Hill in there.

      • Randy says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        2 WR slots and a flex. I’m working on dealing one to improve at RB

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Randy: Yeah, that sounds good.

      @Randy: Jordy, Cooks, Tyreek for me.

  5. Rak says:

    Standard scoring

    2/3: Alshon, golden tate, tarik Cohen

    TE: hunter henry/ebron

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Rak: I have it as Alshon and Tate with a side of Ebron.

      • Rak says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        I’m worried about the alshonn Peters matchup. Does Howard being banged up give tarik more of an opportunity?

  6. Big League Choo says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Tarik cohen for diggs or martavis

    10 team standard

    My rbs bell, Hyde, coleman, cohen, DJ

    Wr Corey Davis, decker, Kupp, golladay, parker

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Big League Choo: For Diggs, yes, Bryant, probably, but I’d want Diggs first.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      @Big League Choo: I like Martavis a ton this year, but yes for either. Remember that was probably Diggs best game of the season last week. It’s downhill from here

      @andrewm: Dez, Davonte, Thielen, and Cohen for me.

      • andrewm says:

        @MB: @jay already on computer 2 thanks for the input I think I’m going with those wr and going to try Cohen at flex. I spent 35 of a 100 faab budget on him

  8. Jeffrey Gilden says:

    Morning Jay!
    Pick 2, standard scoring (no ppr)
    Crabtree, Pryor, Hill

    Thanks!!

      • KeeblerMN says:
        (link)

        Thanks! A little surprising though since both your rankings and the consensus have Crabtree ranked over Prior by 3 to 5 spots.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @KeeblerMN: going full ceiling here with Hill.

          • KeeblerMN says:
            (link)

            I hear you, Hill is in for sure. I was saying that Pryor over Crabtree was surprising as the rankings would tell to start Crabtree if I hadn’t asked…

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              I like Pryor, but mire risk.

  12. Herschel says:

    @Jay: Ppr league. Start two of martavis, Cobb and Thielen. Who do you like?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Herschel: Bryant and Thielen

      • Herschel says:

          @Herschel: not too much, but I get the concern.

      @Herschel: Martavis and Cobb. Fade Thielen til Bradford is back

    Need to start 2 rbs Cj Anderson, k.williams or t.cohen?

    Hey guys, last minute lineup questions in both of my leagues, each with standard scoring:

    Pick two from Diggs (with Keenum, it looks like), Golladay, DeSean Jackson, and TY Hilton
    Pick three from Martavis Bryant, Watkins, Tyrell Williams, Ginn.

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      @mrm3711: 1. Golladay & D Jax

      2. Bryant Watkins and Ginn

  15. MrMojoRisin says:
    (link)

    With Bradford out today, would you still start Diggs over Kupp,Martavis, & Crowder?

    • MrMojoRisin says:
      (link)

      @MrMojoRisin: PPR league

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      @MrMojoRisin: nope, fade Diggs until Bradford is back. I assume it’s the Dalvin Cook show. I’d start Martavis and Crowder

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MrMojoRisin: yeah, I’m okay with Diggs still. And Bryant.

  16. Dan says:
    (link)

    Need to start three of Cooper, Jeffrey, Diggs, and Beckham? Are the first three good enough that I start them all just in case Odell can’t play? If not, which do I sit for Odell? Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dan: I’d be cautious with OBJ. Start the first three.

  17. Oppo Taco says:
    (link)

    Jaquizz Rodgers over THielen now that Bradford is out? .5 PPR

  18. Scott P says:
    (link)

    If Bradford is a no-go today, do I sub in CJ Anderson in Cook’s place? I have Hunt and Ajayi already starting.

    • Scott P says:
      (link)

      @Scott P:

      Standard scoring, non-PPR league by the way.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      @Scott P: Bradford is not playing so I would play Dalvin. Offense will revolve around him

      • Scott P says:
        (link)

        @MB: My fear is the stacking of the box against him with little threat from the passing game.

      • Scott P says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        I was busy yesterday morning, so I didn’t get the chance to thank you for the advice. I stuck with Cook. It didn’t work out point-wise (20 point difference), but I still won my match-up. I appreciate you guys getting back to me so quickly.

  19. Cheese says:

    12 team ppr
    Rb: Crowell or K. Williams

      • William Hung says:

        @Jay: I need him to kick this winner – reading the twitter comments after his miss has fired me up – i almost want to reply back to all of them if he wins this game

          This is why we can’t have nice things….

          • jason batteiger says:
            (link)

            @William Hung: going crazy over a guy who’s like the 22nd ranked kicker might be the cause here. sure hope you didn’t “have to have” this guy and draft him earlier than either last round or just have added him post draft.

  28. Big E Is A Creep says:
    (link)

    Thoughts on Chris Carson’s week 2? Is the long term potential there?
    There’s not much to like about today, except that he’s leading the backfield in carries.

    • Big E Is A Creep says:
      (link)

      @Big E Is A Creep: Oops. Spoke too soon. Still curious as to his season long potential.
      It’s crazy how things change so fast. I was giving serious thought to dropping Chris Thompson and Chris Carson all week. I opted to go without a kicker this week, so that I could roster an extra RB. Good call!
