Fan Duel Week 2 NFL line up advice

Welcome to Week Two of NFL Fantasy on Fan Duel

Updates will be made as needed leading up to week one kick offs.

Each week I’ll be posting players I am strongly considering for my Fan Duel football line ups each week. I’ll also include QB/WR stacks and injury news you should be watching for possible reserves who may benefit from those situations.

Always keep in mind that Week 2 is still typically a hard week to handicap. We saw only some, of what each team has planned, but there were a few clues and trends to pay attention to.

Week 2 Top scoring Game Lines:

TEN at DET -5.5 (47), CIN at PIT -5 (47.5), NO at NYG -5 (52.5), TAM at ARI -6.5 (50), SF at CAR -14 (48.5), ATL at OAK-4.5 (48)

Low Scoring Games: PHI at CHI -3 (42.5), MIA at NE -6.5 (41.5)

Players and Games I’m targeting this week,

NO at NYG looks to be very high scoring. Eli Manning NYG QB and O Beckham NYG WR are a very tempting stack. The Saints defense couldn’t stop Oakland in week one and I doubt they’ll stop Manning/OBJ this week. The Giant defense isn’t a stone wall either, so D Brees NO QB, B Cooks NO WR and W Snead NO WR should be worth starts. The ball should be flying the entire second half in this game. You want players from this game in your line ups.

The Steelers offense rolled thru the WAS defense on Monday night and will have no problems with the CIN DEF this coming Sunday. B Roethlisberger QB, A Brown WR and D Williams RB scored a total of 83.5 total fantasy points together on Monday and I’m riding this trio until further notice. The Bengals have their own stud receiver, AJ Green who had 12/180 and a TD last week. Figure on him almost matching those numbers this week while A Dalton CIN QB is trying to match the Steelers point for point. This is another game you a piece of this week.

Face it, week one proved that the LA Rams offense stinks, play the Seattle Defense this week.

It looks like Thomas Rawls will be the starting SEA RB this week.

The Baltimore Defense looked good in week one and this week they have the rebuilding Cleveland Brown offense minus RG3, the Ravens Defense should do just fine.

The SF 49er’s visit the Carolina Panthers this week. The SF DEF looked good against the LA Rams on Monday night, they won’t against the Panthers. Load up on C Newton QB, K Benjamin WR, T Ginn WR, J Stewart RB and G Olsen TE this week. You want part of this game in your line up, also..

K Allen SD WR is now on the IR with a severe Knee Injury. This makes T Benjamin SD WR and T Williams SD WR the most likely recipients of Allen’s numerous looks and catches from SD QB, P Rivers.

T Sharpe TEN WR looked good in his first start for the Titans, I expect him to get even better as the season rolls on.

M Jones Jr DET WR had a line of 10/85/0 in week 1, he was indeed sought out by M Stafford DET QB often and will see better results (TD’s) as the season progresses.

D Prescott DAL QB disappointed some fantasy players in week 1, he is still a value QB (7000) and will only get better as he settles into the starting QB job on the Cowboys.

S Ware KC RB is up against a stiffer HOU DEF this week, however he still can do everything asked of him, just don’t expect another 30 point game.
