Fantasy Football Week 2 Start 'Em & Sit 'Em: Matthew Stafford bounces back like a champion against the Falcons

Fantasy Football Week 2 Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em: Matthew Stafford bounces back like a champion against the Falcons

It’s normal to freak out a bit after week 1 when one of your stars struggles. We share your frustration when guys like Austin Ekeler, Aaron Jones, Mark Andrews, Kyle Pitts, Mike Williams and DJ Moore, among others, had bad games. But you can’t overreact.

Now, there are certain situations where you should be concerned. The Cowboys, namely Ezekiel Elliott and CeeDee Lamb, could be in trouble with Dak Prescott (thumb) out. David Montgomery, Cam Akers, Dameon Pierce and Travis Etienne are not looking good right now. And the Patriots may not have a player you can trust.

But let’s see what happens in week 2. Things could change. And you might regret your initial overreaction.

Rewind to last year in Week 1 with Aaron Rodgers when the Saints demolished the Packers 38-3. Rodgers was terrible in that game with 133 passing yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. He scored a fantasy point.

Do you remember what happened next? He’s played six straight with at least 23 Fantasy Points en route to winning his second straight MVP award. As Rodgers would say, fantasy managers need to RELAX.

We know you want to win every Fantasy game. U.S. too. But a game shouldn’t be your sample size, and we’ll see what happens in week 2 if these concerns become a trend. Hopefully the stars you’re counting on this season deliver big hits.

Matthew Stafford was another player who had a disappointing Week 1 in the Rams’ 31-10 loss to the Bills. He struggled with 29 of 41 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Questions were asked about his elbow, the Rams having a Super Bowl hangover and whether Stafford was already washed.

I expect Stafford to bounce back with a monster game in Week 2 against the Falcons, which is why he’s our start to the week. He’s had time to correct some of his mistakes from Week 1 since this game was Thursday night, and hopefully he’ll be on the same page as Allen Robinson, who’s also a rebound candidate. in this game.

The Falcons just allowed Jameis Winston to pass for 269 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1, with 213 yards and both scores in the fourth quarter. That defensive disappointment should continue this week on the road, and Stafford should be ready to go from the start.

Keep in mind with Stafford’s struggles in Week 1 that the Bills might have the best defense in the NFL. The Falcons don’t have that level of talent. Sean McVay has also never been two games under .500 in his career, so the Rams should win this game, with Stafford leading. He could be one of the top five quarterbacks in Fantasy in Week 2.

Browns (against NYJ)

The Browns had four sacks and an interception in Week 1 against the Panthers, and this defense should be able to make plays against Joe Flacco and the Jets at home. The Jets scored nine points in Week 1 against the Ravens while allowing three sacks and two turnovers.

  • Bengals (at DAL)
  • Packers (vs. CHI)
  • Patriots (at PIT)

Vikings (at PHI)

The Vikings defense had a great opener against the Packers in Week 1. Minnesota allowed just seven points with four sacks and two turnovers, but the Philadelphia offense should be a tougher opponent this week. The Eagles allowed a no-turnover sack in Detroit in Week 1 while scoring 32 points.
