Pass Happy/Run Happy - Week 2


PITTSBURGH (vs. KCC) – and vice versa:  
Philip Rivers gashed the Chief defense last week, and this week – especially sans LeVeon Bell and the Chiefs possibly trying to quell James Conner – Big Ben will be busy.   Expect a contest where each QB throws over 40 times, possibly resulting in 300+ yards each.  Roethlisberger is one of our top QB plays this week and Mahomes will be up there as well.  That being said, the WR trio of Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Tyreek Hill will all be solid plays, with Brown being one of our top dogs.  And expect TE Travis Kelce to have a bounce-back effort.  Start ‘em if you got ‘em.  Great Starts:  Roethlisberger, Mahomes, Brown and Hill  Solid Starts:  Smith-Schuster and Kelce  Upside Play:  James Washington (WR – PIT)


DETROIT (@SFO) – and vice versa:  Same deal here as both passing attacks should provide for solid fantasy output.  Matthew Stafford was terrible last week, but the Jets’ secondary is actually quite under-rated.  Expect a bounce-back here against a softer defense lacking big-time playmakers.  On the other sideline, expect Jimmy Garappolo to torch the Lions’ defense much like Jet rookie QB Sam Darnold.  Both are mid-to-low-level QB1’s this week.  You can safely start either.  On the receiving side, look for the Lion WR trio of Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay to share the targets, making them safe plays but with lower upside.  As for the Niner pass-catchers, we like TE George Kittle a lot, but the WRs are crapshoots.  Marquise Goodwin may not even play.  Great Start:  Stafford  Good Starts:  Garappolo, Jones, Tate, Kittle  Upside Plays:  Golladay and Trent Taylor (WR – SFO)




CHICAGO (vs. SEA):  The Seahawk defense is a shell of its former self with the Legion of Boom looking more like the Legion of Allowing Fantasy Points.  Last week, Denver rookies Royce Freeman and Philip Lindsay both had admirable stat lines against this Seahawk defense.  This week, the Bears will look to control the game on the ground, keeping wunderkind Russell Wilson off the field.  Look for a ton of Jordan Howard, and in PPR formats, Tarik Cohen will also merit a start.  Great Start:  Howard  Good Start (PPR):  Cohen


BALTIMORE (vs. CIN):  The Bengal defense will continue to have problems stopping the run without Vontaze Burfict roaming the flat.  Alex Collins needs to quit fumbling, and will get his chance with a likely high volume of touches this week.  Especially with Kenneth Dixon now on IR.  Buck Allen will steal some carries and will prove valuable as a flex in larger PPR formats.  We’d be shocked if Collins doesn’t top 100 total yards and at least one score as the Ravens stave off the Bengals in what could be a closer game than last week’s blowout of the Bills.  Great Start:  Collins  Flex Start (PPR):  Allen
