Week 2 QB Rankings and Streaming Options

QB rankings and streaming advice for Week 2 of the 2018 fantasy football season. We saw Fitzmagic, a touchdown for each new Raven, another Aaron Rodgers fourth quarter comeback, and a no-good-very-bad tie. Week 1 came and went, but did not disappoint. Though I missed the pick on Ryan Fitzpatrick going toe-to-toe with Drew Brees, I did make away with all three quarterback picks being in the top 15. Case Keenum proved he could manage Bronco expectations with a win against the Seahawks and Andy Dalton took full advantage of his best supporting cast since 2015. But the real winner was Tyrod Taylor, who — despite the rain — made an impact on the ground (with a team-high 77 yards and a touchdown on just eight carries) and added a Josh Gordon touchdown late in the fourth quarter to lead the Browns to their first non-loss since 2016. He also handed fantasy owners a victory with 23.6 fantasy points in standard ESPN leagues.

With injuries just getting started (Marcus Mariota, Rodgers?) and second-year players starting to thrive (Patrick Mahomes) we look towards Week 2 with the following rankings and potential streamers. Again, these rankings are based on a combination of matchup, GLSP, and how they’ve performed fantasy-wise this season (or in this case, last week).1
