Week 2 of the NFL season is here, and with that brings my top plays, sleepers and stacks for the week. Whether your playing Daily Fantasy Sports, or a season long league hopefully these pick’s help out this weekend!
Manning is playing the woeful Saints this weekend. The Saints have the worst pass defense in the NFL, going into sunday they started 3 defensive backs who have never played a snap in the NFL. I fully expect Eli and Odell to put up massive points this weekend. Last season when Eli played this Saints defense he threw for 350 yards and 6 touchdowns. He will be the most owned quarterback this weekend, but should be well worth it. Eli and Odell are my number 1 stack of the week.
Robinsons price on draftkings dropped from $8300 to $7800, which means he should be higher owned this week. Robinson had a team high 15 targets last week, expect more of the same this week and for Robinson to break 100 yards and score at least a touchdown.
Johnson is the main running back in Arizona. When Arizona ran the ball last week it was with Johnson 84% of the time. Johnson might go under the radar for some people this week as I expect people to fade the Cardinals due to their performance last week. Don’t fade Johnson as he will be the key to a successful game by Arizona this week.
Sanders is only 6k on draftkings this week, which is ridiculously low for a number 1 wide receiver. Demaryius Thomas is battling through injury and the terrible Colts defense are traveling to Denver. Expect Sanders to get most of the targets on sunday.
Smith had 9 targets for 5 receptions and 19 yards in week 1, I know that’s terrible. However Baltimore is traveling to Cleveland who just got burnt by Carson Wentz. Flacco loves to throw to Smith and I expect the same this weekend. Smith won’t be a popular play this week due to his performance last week, but don’t jump off the bandwagon just yet.
Mariota is a very good tournament play this week. He didn’t play well in week 1, he has a great matchup against Detroit, and Demarco Murray and Tajae Sharp looked better than expected last week. This game should be a shootout and Mariota will be a big part of it.
Risky Stack Of The Week
Jimmy Garoppolo/Julian Edelman
Historically when Miami comes to New England the pats spread them out and throw it all over the yard, yes that is when Tom Brady is on the field. However I expect the same gameplan from The Pats this week. Garoppolo should be getting rid of the ball quick and finding one of the best possession receivers in the league in Julian Edelman. Edelman should see 10 targets minimum this week and will score a touchdown.
