First the Chargers and the Broncos light up the scoreboard on Sunday only to be followed by 78 points of awesomeness on Monday night. What a great weekend to play fantasy football. Look for more fireworks in week three as Indy,
When using this list, try and remember a couple basic rules:
1) Studs – Always play your studs. Each position will include a list of players that are considered studs and should not be benched. If you have the luxury of needing to decide between studs, check out the matchups or feel free to let the shark tank assist you in your decisions. This list will change from week to week.
2) Depth – Every fantasy team is different and some have more depth than others. Only follow the recommended moves if your team depth allows you to make such a move.
Enough of the chit-chat, onto the list!!
Peyton Manning, Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville
Tony Romo, Dallas at Green Bay
Drew Brees, New Orleans at Denver
Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh
Jay Cutler, Denver (vs. New Orleans): Cutler will hold on to the ball better this week avoiding any controversy as he leads the formidable Broncos passing attack against the Saints. You won’t get four TDs this week, but 300+ passing yards and two TDs is a safe bet. Enjoy.
Trent Edwards, Buffalo (vs. Oakland): Just a warning not to jump on Edwards as a free agent thinking you found the second-coming of Jim Kelly after he completed 20 of 25 passes last week. Edwards won’t be changing his stripes (do Bills have stripes?) this week.
Adrian Peterson, Minnesota vs. Carolina
LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego vs. N.Y. Jets
Reggie Bush, New Orleans at Denver
Willie Parker, Pittsburgh at Philadelphia
Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh
Clinton Portis, Washington vs. Arizona
Marion Barber, Dallas at Green Bay
Frank Gore, San Francisco vs. Detroit
Steven Jackson, St. Louis at Seattle
Joseph Addai, Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville
Marshawn Lynch, Buffalo (vs.
Matt Forte, Chicago (vs.
Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville
Randy Moss, New England vs. Miami
Calvin Johnson, Detroit at San Francisco
Brandon Marshall, Denver vs. New Orleans
Anquan Boldin, Arizona at Washington
Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona at Washington
Terrell Owens, Dallas at Green Bay
Chad Johnson, Cincinnati at N.Y. Giants
T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cincinnati at N.Y. Giants
Braylon Edwards, Cleveland at Baltimore
Andre Johnson, Houston at Tennessee
Plaxico Burress, N.Y. Giants vs. Cincinnati
Steve Smith, Carolina vs. Minnesota
Wes Welker, New England (vs.
Eddie Royal, Denver (vs. New Orleans): Royal owners breathed a sigh of relief as he still managed five catches, 37 yards, a TD and a two-point conversion last week despite Brandon Marshall‘s return. They’ll be plenty to go around this week as well as Cutler and the Broncos passing attack continues to dominate.
Dallas Clark, Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville
Jason Witten, Dallas at Green Bay
Kellen Winslow, Cleveland at Baltimore
Chris Cooley, Washington vs. Arizona
Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City at Atlanta
Antonio Gates, San Diego vs. N.Y. Jets
John Carlson, Seattle (vs.
Tony Scheffler, Denver (vs. New Orleans): Despite Brandon Marshall‘s record setting performance last week, Scheffler still managed to catch two TD passes as part of his six-catch, 64-yard totals against the Chargers. If the Saints allowed Jason Campbell and the Redskins to do damage, what do you think the Broncos will do with Jay Cutler coming off a 350-yard passing game? Start every Bronco in the passing game you can find.
Greg Olsen, Chicago (vs.
