Week 2: Must-Start Studs

Week 1 is in the books and it’s time to set your lineup so you can get your first back-to-back wins of the season or your first win of the season if you had it rough last week. As always with the must-start players of the week I try not to name the obvious guys that everyone is going to start but sometimes they end up here as they are too good to pass up. This is where we think slightly outside the box and come up with some guys you may be going back and forth with because you cannot make a decision. Being that we are only entering week 2, the list will have some players who had a rough week 1, but that we don’t want you to be scared to start again. Lets not waste any time and jump right in!

Ryan Tannehill, QB, MIA

Don’t let a slow week 1 for Tannehill change your train of thought. You drafted him in hopes he would have a good season, I thought he would too, just don’t let week 1 shake that mindset from you. Looking closer at the game you will notice nobody on that offense got off to a good start. Lamar Miller didn’t produce, Cameron did ok, and Landry produced, but the special teams TD is what really put him over the top. Even there defense didn’t look so hot as many thought they would. The thing is the Redskins controlled the clock for the much more time during the 1st half and they did make a few plays while Miami was trying to get there feet under themselves. This week the Dolphins will face a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that nobody is concerned with. I fully expect Tannehill to have the kind of game we thought he would last week, same goes for Miller, Cameron and Landry. All Dolphins players are ready for lift off in week 2.


Justin Forsett, RB, BAL

Last season Forsett really came to life and ended up on everybody’s radar for this years draft. In many PPR leagues, Forsett was being drafted as early as the 2nd round as he displayed a knack for not only running the rock, but catching it too. The Ravens played the Broncos in week 1 and the Broncos defense couldn’t have been any more stingier. They held every Raven player in check from the QB down to the WR’s, even including Mr. Forsett. This week is a different story as the Ravens are coming to Oak Town and will attempt to rebound with a beat down. If last week was a sneak peek of what to expect from the Raiders on Sunday, it’s going to be a very long day. This season and in the past, the Raiders have struggled to contain the run, and I see no reason why that would chance this weekend. Whether you play in PPR or Standard, Forsett should be in every lineup heading into week 2.


John Brown, WR, ARI

Not the biggest man on the field, but John Brown is one of the most explosive WR’s you’ll witness this season. Last week he scored a TD but Brown was only scratching the surface and there is plenty more where that came from. As long as Carson Palmer remains healthy it looks like Brown will have a top 10 QB throwing to him all season long. Sure, Fitzgerald & Floyd are going to get there share of the work here but Brown brings a skill-set that they don’t and will get plenty of attention. Arizona plays a weak Chicago defense who just gave up big points in week 1 and there is no reason for that to change in week 2. Start Brown with confidence.
