Well, I may have been a little premature. So for those of you who rely solely on me for fantasy advice (I’m so sorry), here’s some extra help setting those lineups for Week 2:
Put him in coach!—Bishop Sankey, RB Tenessee Titans: Sankey had a fantastic Week 1 agains the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 74 rushing yards, 12 additional receiving, and two total touchdowns. Sankey also tied Kendall Wright for the most targets from Marcus Mariota.
But that was last week, and the Bucs certainly didn’t make it difficult on him. This week, however, Sankey and the Titans take on the Cleveland Browns—you know, the team that Chris Ivory racked up points on with little resitance.
With that being said, an additional sit for the week would be Marcus Mariota. Don’t get to hyped up over the great debut. The Browns (surprisingly) are one of the better teams in the league in terms of limiting QB fantasy points. Probably a good idea to try out another QB option.
Maybe next week—Jordan Cameron, TE Miami Dolphins: I know, they’re playing the Jaguars, but (the second surprise of the day) the Jags are actually pretty good at limiting tight ends. I guess everyone does something well, right?
Greg Olsen was a non-factor in Week One when the Carolina Panthers met up with Jacksonville, and since Week 4 of last season the Jags have allowed only three tight end touchdowns. Damn impressive, Jaguars. Even I give credit where credit is due.
Cameron is a very promising tight end, and the odds are he may be your only one on roster. If that’s the case, check the free agents for Austin Seferian-Jenkins or something.
By the way, this doesn’t apply to Rob Gronkowski next week. There’s no stopping him. There’s a high-80% chance he’s not even human.
