Season to date: 8-6

 

There are eight 2-0 teams so far this season, the most in the league since eight teams also opened the season 2-0 in 2010. And after the embarrassing loss by the Pittsburgh Steelers at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals last night, there are eight 0-2 teams. The undefeated includes the Kansas City Chiefs, who won two games during all of 2012. The 0-2 clubs include the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins, both playoff teams a year ago

On Sunday, the AFC West was 4-0 as the Denver Broncos rolled the New York Giants, the San Diego Chargers won at Philadelphia, the Kansas City Chiefs edged the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders stifled the Jacksonville Jaguars. The first three wins mentioned, combined with the Washington Redskins loss at Lambeau Field, meant that the NFC East was zero for Sunday. And once again, combine those victories by the Broncos, Chargers and Chiefs with the Buffalo Bills’ 24-23 win over the Carolina Panthers and the AFC was a perfect 4-0 vs. NFC teams in Week 2…

As far as fantasy football goes, for most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions (over 20 from your QB; more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense). This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

 

Here are the basic league settings that we are basing our predictions on…

Roster:
QB,2WR,2RB,TE,FLEX (w/r/t), K, DST
Settings:

passing=25 yds/pt2-6=7

With all that behind us, here are the FANFOOD Fantasy Football 3 IN/OUT results for week 2 followed by a recipe for Gridiron Grinders.

Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts was targeted 14 times against the Raiders. Shorts picked up 93 yards on 8 receptions. Despite the high target total, he was held out of the end zone. It was the afternoon Shorts’ fantasy owners had been waiting for, though it’s worth noting he entered garbage time (Jacksonville’s final two drives) with just four grabs for 37 yards. Chad Henne was utterly incapable of driving the ball down the field between Maurice Jones-Drew’s second-quarter injury and Oakland’s shifting to a prevent defense.

 

Washington wide receiver Pierre Garcon was one of the bright spots on Sunday in an abysmal loss at Green Bay for the Redskins in the Week 2 game. Garcon attempted to put the Redskins on his back in the second half. He finished the game with eight catches for 143 yards and a touchdown for his best game thus far with Washington. His long catch went for 44 yards in which he did most of the work following a screen pass. He was targeted a team-high 13 times by quarterback Robert Griffin III. Garcon, who scored on a 6-yard pass from RG3 in the third quarter, now has 15 catches for 207 yards and a touchdown in two games for Washington. He is clearly the Redskins’ most reliable receiving option.

 

Antonio Brown caught six passes for 57 yards in Monday night’s Week 2 loss to the Bengals. Brown was targeted nine times on the night, tied with Jerricho Cotchery and one behind Emmanuel Sanders for the team lead. Brown did have a 33-yard catch taken away by a Marcus Gilbert tripping penalty. It was a good week to have him on your bench.

 

Fantasy owners who stuck the Dallas DST in their lineups on Sunday got some points (over 15). But the Cowboys recorded no turnovers and no scores in their loss to Kansas City. The Cowboys got thier points with four sacks and by holding the Chiefs down to 17 points, but that doesn’t exactly constitute an explosion. here are their stats:

Torrey Smith caught seven balls for 85 yards in Baltimore’s Week 2 win over Cleveland. Joe Haden shadowed Smith on virtually every snap, but the Ravens responded by attacking. Running a noticeably more diverse route tree this week — Smith is often an “isolation” receiver who strictly plays along the sideline — he came away as the Ravens’ target leader in a landslide. He has now posted back-to-back 80-plus-yard games to open the year. He was targeted a team-high 13 times, and came close to a TD on Sunday, but he bobbled a potential 29-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter.

 

 

Dwayne Bowe caught four passes for 56 yards with a touchdown in Sunday’s Week 2 win over the Cowboys.
Bowe was second on the team (behind Jamaal Charles) with eight targets. His touchdown came on an easy pick play in the third quarter from 12 yards out. Bowe remains a top-tier NFL talent, but Smith’s unwillingness to push the ball down the field caps his upside. Through two weeks, Bowe has eight catches for just 86 yards. Bowe will do battle with Cary Williams in Thursday’s Andy Reid Bowl in Philadelphia.

 

 

Panthers starting running back DeAngelo Williams had a solid performance during the Week 2 loss at Buffalo Sunday. Williams was easily the best RB on the field for the Panthers, as he rushed 22 times for 85 yards to average 3.9 yards per carry. He didn’t score during the game and also wasn’t targeted in the passing game. Williams had a long run of 21 yards. The 30-year-old RB has averaged 85.5 yards per game in his first two contests of the year and has yet to score. He was a non-factor in the passing game. The Panthers are a more run-heavy team under OC Mike Shula, so Williams is locked into a featured role with Jonathan Stewart (ankles) sidelined. Mike Tolbert received just six carries, but replaced Williams on third downs and in passing situations.

Gridiron Grinders

 

INGREDIENTS

12 fresh tomatillos – peeled and rinsed well
1 small yellow onion – peeled and coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic – peeled and smashed
1 1/2 pounds flank steak
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 package Hidden Valley® Ranch dry seasoning mix
1 pinch dried red pepper flakes (optional)
6 hamburger buns

 

PREPARATION

For Salsa Verde:

Place the tomatillos, onion and garlic on a lightly-oiled baking sheet and grill over charcoal, turning often,
until the onion is crispy and tomatillos have burst – about three to five minutes.

Remove from the grill to cool.
Once cool, place the ingredients in the work bowl of a food processor and puree until desired consistency.
This can be done up to three days in advance if kept chilled in an air tight container.

For Steak:

Place the flank steak on a piece of plastic wrap large enough to cover the steak once folded.
Season the steak with salt and pepper.
Liberally dust each side of the steak with Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning mix,
then sprinkle with red pepper flakes, if using.
Wrap tightly with new pastic wrap and chill for one to two hours.

Remove the steak from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before grilling.
Unwrap the steak and grill over medium heat for five to seven minutes on each side or until you reach an internal temperature of 150 degrees
allow the steak to rest covered for five minutes.
Lightly toast the hamburger rolls.
Serve the steak sliced over the rolls generously topped with the salsa verde.
