Now that week 1 is in the books, we can start to relax. There were many surprise performances and many disappointing performances in week 1. If you still have uncertainty at certain positions, you have come to the right place. I’m going to dissect this weeks matchups and give you the best streamers for week 2.
Josh Allen (Buf): The Buffalo Bills are traveling to New York to face the Giants. The same Giants team that gave up 4 td’s and 405 yards to Dak Prescott in week 1. I’m not saying the Bills offense is on the same level as the Cowboys, but Josh Allen is more than capable of scoring against a poor defense. He is one of my favorite plug ins for this week.
Andy Dalton (Cin): Can you believe Andy Dalton leads the league in passing yards? Now we obviously know he will not keep up this pace for the season but what a strong start to his season. Not only is passing for 417 yards impressive, he did it against a relatively good Seahawks defense. Now he is home against the 49ers who came off an ugly win against the Bucs. I’m not convinced that the 49ers defense is actually good. So I’m fine with taking a chance on Dalton this week in hopes of a similar performance from last week.
Virgil Green (Lac): Now that Hunter Henry is expected to miss a bit of time, Virgil Green is forced to step into the spotlight. Rivers loves throwing to his tight ends and the Chargers have a plus matchup on the road at the Detroit Lions.
Vernon Davis (Was): Jordan Reed is still questionable for Sunday and I like Vernon Davis to do well. If we are being honest with ourselves, the Redskins have no one to throw it to. They have an enticing home matchup against a division foe in the Dallas Cowboys whom I believe will dominate this game forcing the Redskins to have to throw the ball to keep up.
Austin Seibert (Cle): I expect the Browns to get back on track this week and put up a lot of points. Therefore, Seibert should have a busy day.
Stephen Hauschka (Buf): He has been somewhat forgotten about since leaving the Seahawks. He can still kick and that’s all we need when looking at streamers. Oh and I forgot to mention, the Bills are playing the Giants in a game I expect the Bills to dominate. Plug him in with confidence.
Denver Broncos: Before you go crazy in my comments, hear me out. The Chicago Bears success comes from their defense and rarely their offense. If Trubisky plays anywhere near the same as last week, you will be thanking me. I expect this to be a low scoring defensive game where turnovers are bound to happen. The Broncos defense are a sneaky play this week.
