Your Week 2 NFL Sunday Fantasy Playbook


Week 1 was a bumpy ride. Only eight NFL players rushed for 100 yards and that included guys like Knowshon Moreno, Chris Ivory, Terrance West, and Minnesota ground game stalwart . . . wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Big investments whiffed, late round quarterbacks surged, and of course everyone with a top-five redraft league pick felt like an idiot for not just booking Calvin Johnson. Alas it’s game day and that means tweaking, tinkering, and experimenting all the way to kickoff. Luckily for you, we’ve done quite a bit of in-week pontificating and have itemized the most relevant, timely information. Now put your hat on and let’s see some hustle.
