Welcome to week 2! I was really encouraged last week when nobody in any organization tested positive for Covid. I’m really starting to thing we are going to make it through this year with minimal messiness. As for my week 1 rankings, the week 1 FantasyPros accuracy report hasn’t been released. Outside of Monday night, I felt like things went well. For sake of context, I was out on Ben Roethlisberger and JuJu but they put together some magic together. Can’t hit ’em all. 

My strategy for week 2 is implementing what we learned about backfields and targets in week 1. The Michael Thomas injury also has a huuuuge effect on rankings this week. I discounted Drew Brees, gave Emmanuel Sanders and Tre’Quan Smith a big bump. I even put Jared Cook into the top 10 TEs for this week. Talk about a waterfall. 

For running backs, my projections assume that as of now, Miles Sanders will play in week 2 and James Conner will not. Doug Pederson said that holding Miles Sanders out was precautionary and that makes me believe that the 0-1 Eagles will be ready to roll him out. When it comes to Conner, playing with a sprained ankle doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. If he dresses, we still have have to assume that it’s Benny Snell’s backfield. Here are my initial rankings for week 2, and they will be live with changes up to kickoff on Sunday.

    I can’t believe I’m gonna be playing Emmanuel Sanders over OBJ

        If Conner is indeed out for W2 – will Benny Snell be a bell cow? I feel like Jaylen Samuels will never be a thing after years of lackluster performance when given the chance

        I’m thinking I’ll be flip flopping between Snell and Dobbins as my RB2 all week

          If Connor is out, Snell.

  2. Ed says:

    Flex choices:
    Goedert
    Crowder
    Edelman
    I also offered Chubb/Cooper for Adams and he’s debating.
    My other backs are Cook,Carson,Robinson and my other rec are Aj Brown,Crowder,Edelman,Shepard and can get Smokey off waivers,

      Crowder in PPR

    Hey MB,
    12 team, PPR-Would you pickup either Malcolm Brown, Hines, Snell or Robinson(what order) off WW as a bench RB and drop either Akers or Bell?..thanks.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Holding Akers grabbing Brown so you have that backfield
      You can drop Bell
      Brown
      Hines
      Snell
      Robinson

  4. hitzone says:

    12 team standard keep 3

    Picked up C Davis, would you drop him for Mecole hardman who someone just dropped?

    Week at Wr 3 Spot (Lamb or Bryan Edwards)

    Should I Trade my DJ Moore/Edwards for AJ Brown/Boyd

    Or my Moore/Hunt/2021 9th rounder for McLaurin/Boyd/4th rounder

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d go for the McLaurin/Boyd trade.

      Yes I’d drop Davis for Hardman

  5. Gil Faizon says:
    (link)

    I’m in a 14 team, half point PPR league. I got Cooper Kupp and Marquise Brown starting with Emmanuel Sanders on the Bench. My RB’s are Mixon, Ekeler, with Jonathan Taylor in the Flex. Would you put Sanders in ahead of any of those other guys?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d consider him over M Brown but it’s close

  6. hamtime says:
    (link)

    14 man half ppr

    1. only have stafford as my qb but slim pickings on FA for QBs/RBs.

    Are guys like samuel, kirk, and aiyuk worth holding? (all currently on bench) who would u drop any for the following FAs:

    QB – cousins, trubisky
    WR – corey davis
    RB – devonta freeman, gore

    2. key starters are – julio, jacobs, amari, david johnson, waller, marquis brown

    would you trade any for Cam Newton to help my QB woes

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Samuel and Aiyuk worth holding. Drop Kirk for Cousins

  7. scoboticus says:
    (link)

    Do you think Allen Robinson’s Cuba Gooding impression is going to impact his performance this Sunday?

    • scoboticus says:
      (link)

      I’m sorely tempted to replace him with Fuller.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I think once they’re on the field, football is all they’re thinking about…. unless it’s Beckham Jr.

  8. William Hung says:
    (link)

    How far down is OBJ’s ROS outlook after W1? He was ranked 31 in the Top 100… just want to know if I should sell low now

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d honestly get what you can. He seems just out of it

  9. scoboticus says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Alvin Kamara for Chris Godwin and Derrick Henry in Half PPR?

    • hitzone says:
      (link)

      If you get a chance to get a top 6 rb and a no 1 wr you accept unless it’s for CMC or it’s like an 8 man league

    • MB

      MB says:

      Oh yes

  10. steve stevenson says:
    (link)

    Dynasty, std scoring, 2WR/1 Flex, waiver priority:

    RB James Robinson, Snell, Hines or WR E. Sanders?

    I’m weaker at RB. Not expecting to be competitive this year but there’s a pretty active trade market so if Sanders is the best option I could grab him and try to move him.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d grab Snell or Hines in dynasty in that order

  11. Dave says:
    (link)

    I see you have Fuller and Odell one spot apart in PPR, was torn on who to go with. Maybe this is the week Odell against a bad Cincy defense?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d go Fuller

  12. hitzone says:
    (link)

    12 team. standard
    Sorry one more trade question.The guy with pending offers above is down on chubb.

    3) trade my moore/mostert for chubb/AJ Brown

    Assuming order you’d rank trades 1) Chubb, 2) mclaurin deal, and you wouldnt do AJB/Boyd deal at all?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah I think you gotta do that. Great buy low

  13. Chino says:

    Hello,

    Full point PPR. Who will be the better choice for the rest of the season. Stanford or Josh Allen?

    Thanks

    • MB

      MB says:

      Allen

  14. Water boy says:

    Hey man! Full ppr I know it’s only week 2 but I’m starting think of trades , usually I draft RB heavy this year I went balanced / slightly more WR. Would you trade any WR for a RB? Or any of my RBs for a TE upgrade or WR?

    My rbs are dalvin cook, CEH, Mark Ingram , Dobbins , Moss , James Robinson, Darrell Williams, mattison

    My WRs are DeAndre Hopkins, Calvin Ridley , Edelman, Terry McLaurin, N’Keal Harry, Russell gage , will fuller

    My TE starter is jonnou smith on my bench I have Dallas goedart

    A league mate lost bell & marlon Mack he said he needs a RB. Would you offer him my Ingram for his diggs? What about my Zach moss for his henry Ruggs? Or James Robinson for his ruggs ?

    I’m clearly not looking for a big trade now just a depth one

    Next , I’m looking to dump N’Keal Harry but which add: tre quan smith, Corey Davis , MVS, keelan Cole .

    Lastly if I look to deal terry McLaurin or Will Fuller what level player should I look to receive?

    Thanks man!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d try the first 3 of those offers and I would be looking at holding onto Terry and Fuller

      I’d add Tre’Quan Smith if you are dumping Harry

  15. Paul Zone says:

    If Kittle sits, would you roll with this week. Standard scoring.

    Doyle
    Thomas
    Herndon – currently on my bench

    Thanks!

    MB! I hope you are doing well. Could you please help me out this week? I am in a ten team .5 PPR league. We do have big play bonuses in my league. Can you help me figure out who to start for week 2? My biggest questions are at RB2 and flex. I really do appreciate it. Thank you!

    QB- D. Prescott OR D. Lock?

    RB- M. Sanders OR Moss OR Montgomery?

    RB2- J. Taylor OR L. Fournette OR Snell?

    WR1- M. Thomas OR John Brown OR Marquise Brown?

    WR2- M. Evans OR Marquise Brown OR John Brown?

    Flex- Fournette OR Marquise Brown OR J. Taylor OR Fant OR Jonnu Smith OR Moss OR John Brown OR Montgomery OR Snell?

    TE- Fant OR J. Jonnu?

    K- Zuerlein

    D- Tennessee

    • MB

      MB says:

      Hey Trilly!

      Prescott, Sanders, Taylor, Evans, Marquise Brown, Snell (if Connor is out), Fant

      • William Trill Cauley-Stein says:
        (link)

        I appreciate it! You don’t think Jonnu will eat against JAX and think Fant has the tougher game against PIT?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          I think Fant is a huge part of Denver’s O and not extremely worried about the matchup

    Hey MB!

    In need of some roster advice in a 12 team Keeper (3 players kept at a cost of a 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively_

    QB: L. Jackson
    RB: Chubb, Gurley, Conner, Gibson, Kelley, Gaskin
    WR: Woods, Diontae Johnson, Ruggs, Jeudy, Crowder
    TE: Fant, Herndon

    Chase Edmonds is available. Would you drop Herndon for him? RB is a wasteland on my waivers. Looking for some lottery tickets.

    Thanks in advance!

      Yep I’d do that. Pretty solid lottery ticket

    Thanks for your help as our rosters are in flux after week #1. Last night claims were executed and I got Kelley. Not my first choice but not bad given I had 7th priority.

    Here’s the squad and the wire in our 12 teamer, standard scoring league:

    Dak
    Cook, Taylor
    Julio, Golladay
    Montgomery
    Higsbee
    Pats
    Elliott
    Bench: Cohen, Kelley, Mattison
    AJ Green, Lazard, Slayton

    WW: Carlson, Samuel, Ant Miller, Reagor, Hyde, Ballage, Fitz, Gaskin

    1. Any swaps from the wire?
    2. Play Montgomery or a WR as my flex?
    3. Hold Elliott v Rams or drop for Lambo at Titans, Sloman at Eagles, Meyers v Pats, Bass at Dolphins

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah that’s a nice pick up. I’d play Montgomery in your flex. I’m not the guy to ask for kickers but I’d grab Sloman

      • JC says:
        (link)

        Done. Thanks.

        If Golladay is out again, I have Lazard or Slayton. I am sure we will chat about this on Saturday.
