Week 2: Get 'Em In, Get 'Em Out

SHARE:

Week 1 is in the books and it is time to prepare for Week 2.  My Week 1 information was somewhat good, and somewhat off.  Hey, you win some, you lose some.  But now we at least have a week of regular season football to go off of.  Week 2, Get 'Em In, Get 'Em Out, let's roll.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Carolina Panthers

  • Get 'Em In
    • Christian McCaffrey - Because why wouldn't you get him in?  He is a one-man wrecking crew which is a testament to his Week 1 workload where he rushed 19 times for 128 yards and two scores, while also adding 10 catches.  Now he faces a suspect Buccaneers team at home on a short week.  History shows in the TNF games teams tend to go run heavy.  Sign me up for another large dose of McCaffrey.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jameis Winston - Short week, on the road, fresh off a performance where he threw not one, but two pick sixes.  After one week, it appears Jameis Winston is still yet to to be able to make good decisions on the field.  I have repeatedly said since his days at Florida State, that I just do not think he has the on the field smarts to ever be a real factor in the NFL.  Get 'em out.

Arizona Cardinals @ Baltimore Ravens



  • Get 'Em In
    • Lamar Jackson - While we must factor in the fact it was against Miami team who may not even show up to play this week against New England, Jackson looked good.  Five touchdowns is five touchdowns, and you cannot take that away.  I have been off the Lamar Jackson bandwagon, but I may be looking to squeeze myself on.  First Miami, now another juicy matchup with a weak Arizona defense should lead to another strong showing.  Not five touchdown strong, but three is definitely in play.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Kyler Murray - It was a tale of two halves for Kyler Murray, who turned it on just enough in the second half to rally his team all the way back for a.......TIE.  Woof.  And now it gets harder against a big time Ravens defense on the road.  Murray's time will come, but it surely won't be this week.

Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Redskins


  •  Get 'Em In
    • Michael Gallup - Boy, oh boy, did Gallup look good Week 1 against, albeit a bad Giants team, but he looks to be set up for a strong sophomore season.  My first thought after his performance was just that.  "Eh, it was a bad opponent now he goes on the road and it is against a slightly better opponent."  But then I dove further into it and remember there is a very good chance Josh Norman will be shadowing Amari Cooper most of the game.  That may very well make Gallup Prescott's go-to guy for a second straight week.  Plus, if you look back to Washington's Week 1 game against Philadelphia, they were beat deep twice badly by DeSean Jackson.  Well, Gallup is more of Dallas' deep threat than Cooper.  Treat Gallup as a top WR3 with WR2 upside this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Vernon Davis - Davis had a very positive, and surprising day on Sunday, including a jaw dropping touchdown where he basically leaped over the entire Eagles secondary.  While Dallas continues to be less than great against Tight Ends, Jordan Reed should be back this week and with Washington's wideouts being less than stellar, the Cowboys will be able to focus more on on the tight ends.
Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans


  • Get 'Em In
    • Delanie Walker - Alright, I'm sold.  One week in and I am sold on a 35 year old tight end who just missed an entire year with a massive injury.  And you know what, you should be too.  Walker is Mariota's favorite target and that is no secret.  He will continue to look Walker's way and a week after Hunter Henry just put up 60 yards against Indy, Walker could do the same, plus a touchdown.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Deion Lewis - Tennessee may finally be handing the keys to the car to Derrick Henry.  Week 1 saw Henry dominate the carries and the catches in the passing game.  Lewis was mainly held out of the game plan and only saw three carries and four targets in the passing game.  Things may change when the Titans are in games where the game flow sets them up for playing catch-up, but a Week 2 meeting against the Jacoby Brissett lead Colts should keep the Titans pounding the rock.

Seattle Seahawks @ Pittsburgh Steelers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Tyler Lockett - The Patriots just picked the Steelers secondary a part.  In other news the sky is blue and water is wet.  And no, the Seahawks wideouts come nowhere close in comparison to the Patriots', but Lockett is more than capable of having a successful day against this team.  70 yards and a score.  Put it on the board.

    • Seahawks Defense - If the absolute beatdown the Steelers just took up in New England does not wake them up, nothing will.  The Steelers will come out angry this week and should easily hang 20-30 points rendering the Seahawks defense quite useless in the fantasy world.

Buffalo Bills @ New York Giants


  • Get 'Em In
    • John Brown - Brown had a lot of sleeper style hype heading into the season and did not disappoint Week 1 to the tune of seven catches for 123 yards and a score.  Now the Bills for the second straight week play at Met Life Stadium, with the Giants on tap this time around.  Brown will have the chance to burn the Giants secondary, which is equivalent to a handful of traffic cones that just got torched by the Cowboys.  Look for another good showing from Brown.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • All Giants Wide Receivers - Sterling Shepard was already the only viable option in New York with Golden Tate suspended, and he was already playing with a broken finger.  Now he is in concussion protocol, and even if he is cleared to play, I would not trust him, or any other receivers on the Giants.  If you must use Giants limit it to clearly Saquon Barkley, and Evan Engram should be a safe play throughout the season.

San Francisco 49ers @ Cincinnati Bengals


  • Get 'Em In
    • Andy Dalton - The 49ers defense is not as good as what we saw in Week 1.  The two pick 6's they had were more of a result of terrible Jameis Winston passes than they were making plays on the ball.  Dalton looked good in Seattle Week 1 and his receivers are exceptionally fast.  Speed is where the Niners corners lack.  Dalton should be a safe play in his home debut.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Jimmy Garoppolo - Jimmy G continued to look quite shaky Week 1 as he did all preseason long.  He only totaled 166 yards and threw a pick.  The Bengals just gave Seattle and All-Pro Russell Wilson all they could handle in Seattle.  Now the Bengals get to play home against a much lesser proven quarterback.  Shy away from Garoppolo until you see any real signs of life.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Detroit Lions


  • Get 'Em In
    • Philip Rivers - This is the second straight week I have told you to get Rivers in and that is no mistake.  Fresh off a 333 yard and one touchdown performance, Rivers now gets to go play inside a cushy dome against another suspect defense, the Lions.  Look for Rivers to continue on a hot start in 2019.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Kerryon Johnson - I wish I could tell you to get him in, especially after the Chargers defense was just shredded by Marlon Mack a week ago.  However, the Lions deployed a pretty even carry share between Johnson and CJ Anderson which was a surprise to most.  Until if and when we ever see Kerryon truly shoulder the load, this is a situation to avoid. Kerryon may be a flex at best until then.

Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers


  • Get 'Em In
    • Adam Thielen -  Not sure you ever need to be told to get Adam Thielen in, but I will anyway.  In the Opening Night game between the Packers and Bears that set football back a century, the only positive thing to come out of the Bears offense was Allen Robinson going over the century mark.  At the stages of their respective careers, you can easily say Thielen is better than Robinson, so I like his chances to build off of a strong Week 1 showing against the Packers this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Aaron Jones -  Albeit against a stout Bears defense, but Aaron Jones kicked off his first year as the true starting running back with a lack luster 39 yard performance.  Well things do not get easier this week against a Vikings team that just completely neutralized Devonte Freeman.  Jones is a very risky play.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans


  • Get 'Em In
    • Duke Johnson - Duke Johnson had an overall strong debut with the Texans to start the season.  His nine carries was a good sight, but his 6.3 yards a carry was even better.  Plus he added four catches to his stat line.  He is a no-brainer flex in all leagues, and borderline RB2 in PPR.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Kenny Stills - Three catches for 37 yards and a score is, how you say, meh. When you realize his first two catches actually netted him zero yards and all 37 came late on one catch makes it even less appetizing.  Kind of falling in line of what his time in Miami was, Stills plays a big play or bust game, and with a tougher defense on the docket this week, Stills chances of hitting that homerun are even smaller. Don't run the risk.

New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins


  • Get 'Em In
    • Tom Brady - By the time Sunday rolls around, the Patriots may very well be 20 point favorites.  This should not be like past years where they lay an egg down in Miami.  They should score early and often.  And if there is one thing I know about Bill Belichick, he does not believe in mercy rules and does not let up, regardless of score.  Brady should have himself a day.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Antonio Brown - The circus that is Antonio Brown is now performing an encore as upon his arrival to New England, a report surfaced accusing him of sexual assault.  The Patriots say he is practicing, but whether he suits up, and even if he does how much he will play remains quite cloudy.  Until this recent legal issue is cleared up and we actually see him perform on a real National Football League Field, I would continue to stay away.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders


  • Get 'Em In
    • Pat Mahomes - Hell, Joe Flacco just threw for 268 yards against the Raiders.  Can you imagine what Mahomes is going to do?  Yikes.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Josh Jacobs - Jacobs had a really strong showing in his Raiders debut Monday night.  Jacobs ran for 85 yards and two scores.  He however only saw one look in the passing game.  His performance this week could be determined by game flow.  If the Raiders manage to keep it close, he will have a good shot at another successful day as the Chiefs just gave up over five yards a carry Week 1.  But if the game gets away, the Raiders will take to the air and it's clear, Jacobs does not have a role there yet.  I believe it may be the latter more than the former.

New Orleans Saints @ Los Angeles Rams


  • Get 'Em In
    • All offensive skilled players from both teams - POINTS! POINTS! POINTS!
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Both Defenses - I repeat, POINTS! POINTS! POINTS!

Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos


  • Get 'Em In
    • Bears Defense - The Bears defense is fresh off a dominating performance where they held that bad man Aaron Rodgers to only 10 points.  Now they get an extended week of rest coming into a Mile High Showdown against Joe Flacco.  The Bears defense should have themselves a day.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Allen Robinson - Allen Robinson was the lone bright spot for an abysmal offensive performance opening night against the Packers.  Robinson eclipsed the 100 yard mark, something he did only once a year ago, on seven catches.  I would not expect that again in Week 2. He squares off against a strong Broncos defense on the road in Denver.  Robinson is nothing more than a WR4 this week for me.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Atlanta Falcons


  • Get 'Em In
    • Zach Ertz - Zach Ertz was a complete dud pick for me last week.  I won't deny that.  Heading into halftime he only had one catch on two targets, eventually ending up with a pedestrian seven catches for 54 yards.  I don't expect another down performance as back to back poor showings only happened once last year with Ertz.  Week 2 offers a trip to Atlanta where the Falcons will be putting up what I call angry points.  Ertz is top tier tight end play this week.
  • Get 'Em Out
    • Philadelphia Eagles Running Backs - Heading into last week it was said Jordan Howard would be the lead back.  Well that news only translated to six carries for Howard, while Miles Sanders touched the ball 12 times.  The worst thing is all is the ageless wonder that is Darren Sproles, got 12 touches himself.  The Eagles are clearly looking at a strong timeshare among three backs making the use of any of them for fantasy purposes quite murky.

Cleveland Browns @ New York Jets


  • Get 'Em In 
    • Baker Mayfield -  It is officially put up or shut up time for Baker Mayfield.  After the mountain of hype that surrounded this team they came out, specifically Baker, and laid an absolute dud in front of their crowd.  Mayfield turned the ball over three times in Sunday's contest as the Browns were trounced by what most thought was a hapless Titans team.  Heading on the road to New York offers a challenge in itself, but if not now for Mayfield and the Browns, it may be never.  Roll the dice with Mayfield.
  • Get 'Em Out 
    • Robby Anderson - Anderson was battling a calf injury going into Week 1, and whether that affected him or not, his performance was quite lackluster.  Anderson pulled in only three catches for 23 yards and now will more than likely have Denzel Ward shadowing him on Monday night.  Anderson has always been boom or bust, but there seems to be a better chance at bust again this week.  Look elsewhere for pass catchers if you can.
