Settings vary from league to league, but assuming your league starts (2) RBs (2) WRs & (1) W/R/T FLEX, to go along with (1) QB & (1) TE and a standard scoring system, here are the “must starts” for week #2 followed by the FANFOOD 3IN/OUT & a great recipe for grilled potato wedges.  I have made them many times and always a hit.

Depending on your league settings, chances are that you have some kind of combination of the above for your starting lineup. These are the top options for this week and it is hard to make a case to bench any of them. It’s when you get into the players not on this list where it gets tricky.

Assuming your roster is made up of the positions at the top of this page, and a standard scoring system, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. To get to this number and above, you will need at minimum 12 points from each of your starters (a little more from your QB and a few from your kickers and defense). This is the threshold for my IN/OUT predictions.





BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs CLE

The Law Firm put up some nice numbers against Baltimore’s D. This week he has a better match-up against the Browns. He makes for a nice FLEX at minimum.


Demaryius Thomas @ ATL

All the talk in Denver was how many points Decker is going to score with Peyton. He had a so-so game with 5 for 54, and was targeted 7 times. But his compadre, D-thom had an even better one. They both could have a great game against a banged up Falcons D. I don’t think they can stop them without Grimes. Bonus: Start both.


Vincent Jackson @ NYG

VJax didn’t make Ron’s team above, and looks like a match-up player for the season. This is one of those. No team gave up more points to opposing receivers in Week 1 than the Giants. VJax didn’t reach the endzone last week, and had a quiet game as far as points are concerned, but he was targeted 10 times. This is a great week to start him.



Shonn Greene @ PIT

He got you points last week if you had the nerve to start him. You better not try to do it again with him this time around as he is going into Pittsburgh, and their stingy rush defense. The Steelers are coming off a bad loss and were without a couple of their starters that play the rush very well. This week they are back. BUST


DeSean Jackson vs BAL

Last week against the Ravens, A.J. Green had a hard time catching 5 for 70, and “De Mouth” will too this week and probably put up similar if not lesser numbers. Vick is starting to look like a QB#2, making Jackson a bench player for this week.


Kevin Smith @ SF

What a nice game he had week1. What a nice match-up he had week1. He doesn’t play the Rams this week. I cannot see any scenario where smith is in your starting lineup.
