Fantasy Feud Week 2 Optimal Lineup
Remember to always check our up-to-date optimal lineups here.
After just one less-than-stellar performance against the best defense on the planet Aaron Rodgers' price has already dropped substantially. Rodgers has now fallen to the fifth most expensive quarterback on the board at $142,100, which is a tremendous price for the former MVP. The Packers' signal-caller is still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and has outstanding weapons surrounding him. His Week 2 opponent, the Jets, ranked 16th in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) last year, and gave up the 14th most fantasy points per week to opposing quarterbacks. Rodgers is a steal at his price.
LeSean McCoy didn't put up the monster game we expected last week, but he still gashed the Jaguars for 115 total yards while adding six receptions. This week, last year's rushing champion faces the Colts, who were the eighth worst rush defense in the league last season according to our metrics. Shady is one of, if not the most talented running back in the league and plays in one of the best offenses in the league. He's worth paying top dollar for this week.
Meanwhile, Lynch silenced his critics with a massive performance in Week 1, dropping 110 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the Packers. This week he gets a matchup with a Chargers' defense that ranked second-to-last in the league in Adjusted Rushing NEP last year. Despite his massive performance last week and the spectacular matchup this week, Lynch is still priced as the fourth most expensive running back available.
The Titans offense should be one of the most targeted in fantasy this week going up against the Cowboys' putrid defense. Titans' wide receiver Kendall Wright makes a spectacular play this week at just $85,200. Wright is coming off a six-catch, 46-yard and one-touchdown performance in a blowout over the Chiefs last week, and now has the pleasure of matching up with a Dallas secondary who gave up eight catches for 99 yards to Anquan Boldin last week. Wright was targeted seven times last week, second most only to fellow breakout candidate Justin Hunter, and had a very high Success Rate.
Michael Crabtree and Dwayne Bowe also make great plays at wide receiver this week. Crabtree looks to rebound from his two-catch, 25-yard Week 1 performance against a Bears' defense that allowed Robert Woods to grab four balls for 78 yards last week. The 49ers should have no trouble moving the ball against Chicago, and Crabtree should be one of the main beneficiaries.
Bowe was suspended for Week 1, and the Chiefs really missed him. Alex Smith was only able to complete 19 of his 35 passes without his number-one wideout in the lineup, albeit against a stout Titans' secondary. The Broncos gave up the 11th most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers last week, and I expect Kansas City to have to throw a ton in a game with an over/under of 51.
