2014 Fantasy Football: Week 3 QB Rankings

1. Andrew Luck - Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
Luck averaged 269.5 passing yards and 1.5 TD's against the Jags in 2013.

2. Matthew Stafford - Detroit Lions: vs Green Bay
Between the two match-ups last season with Green Bay, Stafford averaged 296 yards passing, 2 TD's and an INT.

3. Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers: @ Detroit
Detroit's secondary is just too beat up to slow down Rodgers.

4. Jay Cutler - Chicago Bears: @ New York Jets
The Jets allow the 2nd most fantasy points to QB's through two games.

5. Drew Brees - New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
Brees always plays well at home but the Vikings allow the fewest fantasy points to QB's so far in 2014.

6. Russell Wilson - Seattle Seahawks: vs Denver
Wilson can do some damage to the Broncos secondary at home.

7. Peyton Manning - Denver Broncos: @ Seattle
Manning will struggle in Seattle but he should get close to 20 fantasy points.

8. Matt Ryan - Atlanta Falcons: vs Tampa Bay
The Falcons can't run the ball and the Bucs stop the run well. Only option is to pass a lot.

9. Cam Newton - Carolina Panthers: vs Pittsburgh
Average match-up but Newton should have a reasonably good day against Pittsburgh.

10. Philip Rivers - San Diego Chargers: @ Buffalo
Buffalo is tough up front against the run and Rivers just threw all over Seattle's defense.

11. Tom Brady - New England Patriots: vs Oakland
This game shouldn't be close so Brady may not throw it often but he will be efficient.

12. Nick Foles - Philadelphia Eagles: vs Washington
Foles could light up a Washington secondary that has yet to be tested. (Texans, Jags)

13. Kirk Cousins - Washington Redskins: @ Philadelphia
Cousins picked apart the Jaguars defense Sunday and Philly has allowed 5 TD passes this year.

14. Ryan Tannehill - Miami Dolphins: vs Kansas City
Kansas City allows the 3rd most fantasy points to QB's. Tannehill should excel.

15. Tony Romo - Dallas Cowboys: @ St. Louis
Romo could have a big game against the Rams but they won't be able to stop his RB.

16. Andy Dalton - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Tennessee
He'll likely be without WR A.J. Green and the Titans allow the 3rd fewest points to QB's.

17. Joe Flacco - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cleveland
Flacco isn't very good on the road but it is a pretty nice match-up for him.

18. Josh McCown - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: @ Atlanta
The Bucs shouldn't be starting McCown but the Falcons defense is pretty bad.

19. Colin Kaepernick - San Francisco 49ers: @ Arizona
Kaep didn't play well on Sunday night and the Cardinals are a tougher challenge.

20. E.J. Manuel - Buffalo Bills: vs San Diego
The Chargers can be thrown on so Manuel has upside in this game.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 3 RB Rankings

1. DeMarco Murray - Dallas Cowboys: @ St. Louis
Murray has totaled over 200 yards and scored each time he's played the Rams.

2. LeSean McCoy - Philadelphia Eagles: vs Washington
McCoy averaged 169.5 total yards and 1.5 TD's against the Skins last season.

3. Arian Foster - Houston Texans: @ New York Giants
Another week where Foster will get a ton of touches.

4. Giovani Bernard - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Tennessee
Bernard had 32 total touches last week and the Titans couldn't stop RB's last year.

5. Marshawn Lynch - Seattle Seahawks: vs Denver
Lynch has an issue with his back but can have a big day if he does play.

6. Alfred Morris - Washington Redskins: @ Philadelphia
Philly had its struggles trying to stop Indy's T-Rich and Ahmad Bradshaw. Morris will get the rock.

7. Eddie Lacy - Green Bay Packers: @ Detroit
Detroit is stout against the run but have allowed a rushing TD in each game this season.

8. Le'Veon Bell - Pittsburgh Steelers: @ Carolina
Bell won't have much running room but will have a decent amount of receiving yards.

9. Matt Forte - Chicago Bears: @ New York Jets
The Jets defense is the best in fantasy against opposing RB's.

10. Rashad Jennings - New York Giants: vs Houston
Jennings had 150 rushing yards and a TD on 22 carries against Houston last year as a Raider.

11. Montee Ball - Denver Broncos: @ Seattle
Ball probably won't have many yards but could score.

12. Zac Stacy - St. Louis Rams: vs Dallas
Stacy should get around 20 carries this week at home.

13. Doug Martin - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: @ Atlanta
Atlanta allows most fantasy points to RB's so excellent match-up if he's healthy.

14. Stevan Ridley - New England Patriots: vs Oakland
Game shouldn't be close which will allow Ridley to get plenty of rushing attempts.

15. Knile Davis - Kansas City Chiefs: @ Miami
Freakish athlete running behind a weak O-Line. Davis will get 20+ touches.

16. Bernard Pierce - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cleveland
The Browns are allowing the 6th most fantasy points to RB's.

17. Terrance West - Cleveland Browns: vs Baltimore
West will get plenty of touches but could struggle against a solid run defense.

18. Lamar Miller - Miami Dolphins: vs Kansas City
With Knowshon out awhile; Miller should take the majority of the backfield snaps.

19. Andre Ellington - Arizona Cardinals: vs San Francisco
Ellington had moderate success on the 49ers in 2013.

20. Joique Bell - Detroit Lions: vs Green Bay
He averaged 89.5 total yards and 0.5 TD's between the two meetings against Green Bay in 2013.

21. Ahmad Bradshaw - Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
Bradshaw is surprisingly in the Top 10 among RB's in fantasy points right now.

22. C.J. Spiller - Buffalo Bills: vs San Diego
Spiller will get around 15 touches and will either make big plays or won't.

23. Chris Johnson - New York Jets: vs Chicago
Splitting time with Ivory but Johnson is the better receiving threat.

24. Toby Gerhart - Jacksonville Jaguars: vs Indianapolis
Gerhart hasn't gotten started yet but Indy does allow the 4th most points to RB's.

25. Frank Gore - San Francisco 49ers: @ Arizona
Just 14 rushing yards on 13 attempts in Week 17 of last season against Arizona.

26. Khiry Robinson - New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
Robinson is going to get the majority of the carries with RB Mark Ingram out.

27. Shane Vereen - New England Patriots: vs Oakland
Vereen won't be much use for the Pats if they blowout Oakland.

28. Reggie Bush - Detroit Lions: vs Green Bay
The Packers allow the 5th most points to RB's after two weeks.

29. Chris Ivory - New York Jets: vs Chicago
The Bears allow the 11th most fantasy points to RB's.

30. Donald Brown - San Diego Chargers: @ Buffalo
Buffalo will be tough to run against but Brown should get a good amount of opportunities.

31. Trent Richardson - Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
Jacksonville allows the 2nd most fantasy points to RB's.

32. Fred Jackson - Buffalo Bills: vs San Diego
San Diego allows the 10th most fantasy points to RB's in 2014.

33. Darren Sproles - Philadelphia Eagles: vs Washington
Sproles had a career high 152 receiving yards on MNF. He remains boom or bust.

34. Pierre Thomas - New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
Thomas' role will increase in Ingram's absence.

35. Matt Asiata - Minnesota Vikings: @ New Orleans
Peterson is going to be out for awhile and the Saints allow the 7th most points to RB's this year.

36. Steven Jackson - Atlanta Falcons: vs Tampa Bay
Jackson is only fantasy relevant if he can score against Tampa Thursday night.

37. Jonathan Stewart - Carolina Panthers: vs Pittsburgh
Stewart will get most of the carries if RB DeAngelo Williams can't play again.

38. Darren McFadden - Oakland Raiders: @ New England
McFadden will need to run hard against the Pats to keep the Raiders in the game if MJD is out.

39. Shonn Greene - Tennessee Titans: @ Cincinnati
Just five rushing attempts for Greene on Sunday. Saints allow the 7th most points to RB's this year.

40. Bobby Rainey - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: @ Atlanta
If RB Doug Martin can't play again; start him if you have him.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 3 WR Rankings

1. Calvin Johnson - Detroit Lions: vs Green Bay
Not coverable. Targeted a lot.

2. Dez Bryant - Dallas Cowboys: @ St. Louis
Bryant registered 38 yards and a TD on the Rams last year. Targeted 14 times on Sunday.

3. Brandon Marshall - Chicago Bears: @ New York Jets
Three TD's last week and the Jets secondary isn't good.

4. Jordy Nelson - Green Bay Packers: @ Detroit
Career high 209 receiving yards last week. Will be facing a secondary on crutches in Detroit.

5. Alshon Jeffery - Chicago Bears: @ New York Jets
The Jets allow the most fantasy points to WR's.

6. Julio Jones - Atlanta Falcons: vs Tampa Bay
Jones has had a strong start to the season and WR Roddy White may not play this Thursday.

7. Demaryius Thomas - Denver Broncos: @ Seattle
Thomas may catch many throws but will find it hard to get it in the endzone.

8. Randall Cobb - Green Bay Packers: @ Detroit
The Lions allow the 4th fewest fantasy points to WR's but Cobb has three TD's already this year.

9. Vincent Jackson - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: @ Atlanta
QB play has been awful for Jackson but he averaged 151.5 yards and 1.5 TD's playing Atlanta in 2013.

10. Andre Johnson - Houston Texans: @ New York Giants
Great match-up but Johnson hasn't scored yet this season unlike his counterpart Hopkins.

11. Antonio Brown - Pittsburgh Steelers: @ Carolina
If Big Ben has time in the pocket; Brown should have a good game.

12. Keenan Allen - San Diego Chargers: @ Buffalo
Allen finally gets a nice match-up after facing Arizona and Seattle's defenses.

13. Cordarrelle Patterson - Minnesota Vikings: @ New Orleans
The Saints secondary looks good on paper but they're allowing the 2nd most points.

14. Pierre Garcon - Washington Redskins: @ Philadelphia
If Cousins and Garcon can get on the same page; Garcon will put up big numbers.

15. Mike Wallace - Miami Dolphins: vs Kansas City
Wallace should have zero trouble getting open against a patchwork secondary.

16. Percy Harvin - Seattle Seahawks: vs Denver
Harvin does it all and should have a day against the Broncos.

17. Julian Edelman - New England Patriots: vs Oakland
The guy just gets it done in the 1st half of football games.

18. Jeremy Maclin - Philadelphia Eagles: vs Washington
Maclin has caught a TD pass in each game.

19. Larry Fitzgerald - Arizona Cardinals: vs San Francisco
The 49ers give up the 3rd most fantasy points to WR's after Sunday night's meltdown.

20. Marques Colston - New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
Colston was held without a catch for the first time in 87 games. Wasn't even thrown to. C'Mon Brees!

21. Reggie Wayne - Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
Wayne should have a bounce back game against the Jaguars.

22. Michael Crabtree - San Francisco 49ers: @ Arizona
Held to just three catches for 29 yards last season against the Cardinals.

23. Eric Decker - New York Jets: vs Chicago
Decker is dealing with a hamstring injury but should be able to play. MNF makes it tricky.

24. Emmanuel Sanders - Denver Broncos: @ Seattle
Sanders has had a nice start this season for Denver but playing in Seattle.

25. Steve Smith - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cleveland
Smith is getting targeted 12.5 times per game meaning he's still getting open.

26. T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
Hilton was thrown to 11 times on Sunday night for the 2nd straight week.

27. Victor Cruz - New York Giants: vs Houston
Cruz can beat the Texans secondary.

28. Golden Tate - Detroit Lions: vs Green Bay
Decent match-up for Tate who hasn't played the Packers since the "Fail Mary" game.

29. Michael Floyd - Arizona Cardinals: vs San Francisco
Floyd only had one catch last week and QB Drew Stanton could start again.

30. Kendall Wright - Tennessee Titans: @ Cincinnati
Wright couldn't get going against the Cowboys secondary means he won't get it going this week.

31. Kelvin Benjamin - Carolina Panthers: vs Pittsburgh
Benjamin could have had a bigger game Sunday if he had held on to a few more throws.

32. Sammy Watkins - Buffalo Bills: vs San Diego
117 yards and a TD last Sunday and the Chargers give up the 7th most points to WR's.

33. Torrey Smith - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cleveland
Smith is just a deep threat. Nothing more.

34. James Jones - Oakland Raiders: @ New England
James Jones? Top 10 WR in fantasy right now? With Derek Carr?

35. DeAndre Hopkins - Houston Texans: @ New York Giants
The Giants give up the 5th most fantasy points to WR's through two weeks.

36. Mohamed Sanu - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Tennessee
Sanu can catch, run and throw his way for fantasy points.

37. Justin Hunter - Tennessee Titans: @ Cincinnati
Still waiting for a breakout game and it's probably not happening this week.

38. Brandin Cooks - New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
Cooks will be hit or miss every week just like Sproles was for them.

39. DeSean Jackson - Washington Redskins: @ Philadelphia
Injured his shoulder. May still play against his former team.

40. A.J. Green - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Tennessee
The Bengals will probably rest Green through their Week 4 bye week.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 3 TE Rankings

1. Jimmy Graham - New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
Minnesota did well against Gronk last week but Graham is a fully healthy TE.

2. Rob Gronkowski - New England Patriots: vs Oakland
Playing against Oakland. Oakland thinks they suck. They're probably right.

3. Greg Olsen - Carolina Panthers: vs Pittsburgh
Olsen will get close to 10 passes thrown his way.

4. Julius Thomas - Denver Broncos: @ Seattle
The Seahawks just got torched by San Diego's Antonio Gates for three touchdowns.

5. Antonio Gates - San Diego Chargers: @ Buffalo
Gates was catching whatever pass QB Philip Rivers was throwing up to him against Seattle.

6. Zach Ertz - Philadelphia Eagles: vs Washington
Ertz is averaging a ridiculous 23.3 yards per catch so far in 2014.

7. Vernon Davis - San Francisco 49ers: @ Arizona
Davis combined for 225 yards and 3 TD's in the two games vs Arizona last season. May not play this week though.

8. Kyle Rudolph - Minnesota Vikings: @ New Orleans
Solid game for Rudolph on Sunday with five catches for 53 yards.

9. Delanie Walker - Tennessee Titans: @ Cincinnati
Walker had a monster game with 142 yards and a TD last week. Scored in Week 1 also.

10. Dennis Pitta - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cleveland
Pitta was robbed of two TD's that went to TE Owen Daniels last Thursday night.

11. Jared Cook - St. Louis Rams: vs Dallas
TE's are finding it easy to score fantasy points on Dallas.

12. Martellus Bennett - Chicago Bears: @ New York Jets
Bennett has scored in each game but the Jets allow the fewest fantasy points to TE's.

13. Travis Kelce - Kansas City Chiefs: @ Miami
Kelce is averaging 65 yards per game. He just hasn't found the endzone yet.

14. Jason Witten - Dallas Cowboys: @ St. Louis
Witten isn't a reliable fantasy tight end anymore.

15. Dwayne Allen - Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
The Jaguars give up the 3rd most fantasy points to TE's.

16. Jordan Cameron - Cleveland Browns: vs Baltimore
Cameron may not play for the 2nd straight week and it's a tough match-up anyway.

17. Jermaine Gresham - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Tennessee
Gresham could score this week against the Titans.

18. Larry Donnell - New York Giants: vs Houston
Donnell had another good game with 81 yards receiving last week.

19. Charles Clay - Miami Dolphins: vs Kansas City
Caught seven of his eight targets against the Bills. Chiefs allow the 5th most points to TE's.

20. Niles Paul - Washington Redskins: @ Philadelphia
Paul had a nice game Sunday but Philly gives up 2nd fewest points to TE's.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 3 DST Rankings

1. New England Patriots: vs Oakland
The top fantasy defense after two weeks up against a rookie QB.

2. Indianapolis Colts: @ Jacksonville
Jacksonville allowed 10 sacks on Sunday. No wonder QB Blake Bortles isn't starting.

3. New Orleans Saints: vs Minnesota
The Saints are desperate for a win and the defense can feed off the energy from the crowd.

4. Miami Dolphins: vs Kansas City
Miami's defensive front should control Kansas City's offense at home.

5. Houston Texans: @ New York Giants
The Giants are giving up the 3rd most fantasy points to defenses.

6. Carolina Panthers: vs Pittsburgh
Carolina's defense will be too much for Pittsburgh to handle.

7. Cincinnati Bengals: vs Tennessee
Cincinnati shuts down another offense at home.

8. Seattle Seahawks: vs Denver
At home but Peyton Manning...

9. Dallas Cowboys: @ St. Louis
Dallas' defense hasn't been terrible and the Rams allow the 2nd most points to defenses.

10. Arizona Cardinals: vs San Francisco
The 49ers turned it over four times Sunday night against the Bears.

11. San Francisco 49ers: @ Arizona
QB Drew Stanton might start again for the Cardinals.

12. St. Louis Rams: vs Dallas
The Rams are usually better at home but they can't stop Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray.

13. Philadelphia Eagles: vs Washington
Philly can force Skins QB Kirk Cousins into mistakes. Especially long throws to the sideline.

14. Cleveland Browns: vs Baltimore
Ravens QB Joe Flacco tends to struggle on the road.

15. Buffalo Bills: vs San Diego
Buffalo's front-4 has to get after Chargers QB Philip Rivers.

* I won't be ranking kickers. Just pick a kicker with a good offense or a kicker that is going against a terrible team.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 2 QB Rankings

1. Peyton Manning - Denver Broncos: vs Kansas City
In the two meetings, Manning averaged 363 yards passing, 3 TD's and an interception against the Chiefs last year.

2. Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers: vs New York Jets
Rodgers should find passing easy again against the Jets after facing the Seahawks.

3. Andrew Luck - Indianapolis Colts: vs Philadelphia
Luck will have to throw if the Colts are going to move the ball.

4. Drew Brees - New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
The Browns allowed 365 passing yards last week. Brees could get 500 yards if he wanted.

5. Nick Foles - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Indianapolis
Struggled against Jacksonville early but the Colts might have a worse defense.

6. Matthew Stafford - Detroit Lions: @ Carolina
Stafford was special on MNF and could build on that against the Panthers.

7. Russell Wilson - Seattle Seahawks: @ San Diego
The Chargers allow the 5th most fantasy points to QB's in 2014.

8. Tom Brady - New England Patriots: @ Minnesota
Brady should be able to pick apart a Vikings defense that didn't face good QB's last week.

9. Andy Dalton - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Atlanta
Atlanta's defense isn't too good. Dalton and the offense will pile up yards.

10. Matt Ryan - Atlanta Falcons: @ Cincinnati
Ryan was extremely impressive last week but the Bengals defense is tough at home.

11. Carson Palmer - Arizona Cardinals: @ New York Giants
Palmer will get opportunities to score points because the Giants offense is so bad.

12. Jake Locker - Tennessee Titans: vs Dallas
Locker had over 20 fantasy points against the Chiefs and the Cowboys are a much weaker defense.

13. Colin Kaepernick - San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
Kaep just needs to go target whoever Bears safety Chris Conte is trying to cover.

14. Ryan Tannehill - Miami Dolphins: @ Buffalo
Tannehill averaged a putrid 138 yards passing between the two games against Buffalo in 2013.

15. Jay Cutler - Chicago Bears: @ San Francisco
Cutler made some horrible decisions with the ball Sunday.

16. Cam Newton - Carolina Panthers: vs Detroit
The Lions secondary is in bad shape but they allow the least fantasy points to QB's after Week 1.

17. Tony Romo - Dallas Cowboys: @ Tennessee
The Titans were great against QB's last year and are on track to be great again.

18. Ben Roethlisberger - Pittsburgh Steelers: @ Baltimore
Big Ben should have a solid game but nothing spectacular on the road.

19. Robert Griffin III - Washington Redskins: vs Jacksonville
RGIII is just not the threat he was two years ago. Jags defense could be underrated.

20. Geno Smith - New York Jets: @ Green Bay
The Jets could be playing from behind forcing Smith to throw.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 2 RB Rankings

1. Adrian Peterson - Minnesota Vikings: vs New England
The Dolphins RB's had plenty of success against the Pats. All Day's turn.

2. LeSean McCoy - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Indianapolis
McCoy should shred a pretty pour Indy defense.

3. Arian Foster - Houston Texans: @ Oakland
Foster had 29 total touches last week for 120 total yards.

4. Marshawn Lynch - Seattle Seahawks: @ San Diego
Lynch is still a beast. No one should be worried anymore.

5. Jamaal Charles - Kansas City Chiefs: @ Denver
Disappointing game for Charles last week and the Broncos D-Line could dominate his O-Line.

6. Montee Ball - Denver Broncos: vs Kansas City
Ball didn't do much with his 25 touches in terms of yards but that's a great amount of touches.

7. Giovani Bernard - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Atlanta
The Falcons allowed 183 total yards and 3 TD's to RB's last week.

8. Matt Forte - Chicago Bears: @ San Francisco
Forte totaled 169 yards last week. He should see another big workload.

9. Le'Veon Bell - Pittsburgh Steelers: @ Baltimore
The elusive Bell had 136 total yards and a TD the last time he faced Baltimore.

10. Alfred Morris - Washington Redskins: vs Jacksonville
Washington and Morris should be able to run on the Jags defense.

11. DeMarco Murray - Dallas Cowboys: @ Tennessee
Murray and the offensive line were the only bright spots for the Cowboys offense Sunday.

12. Chris Johnson - New York Jets: @ Green Bay
Expecting the Jets to play from behind which should allow Johnson to play more snaps.

13. Eddie Lacy - Green Bay Packers: vs New York Jets
If Lacy is good to go; he'll have to make most of his yards by catching passes.

14. Frank Gore - San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
Gore gets another chance at a horrible run defense from 2013.

15. Knowshon Moreno - Miami Dolphins: @ Buffalo
Moreno is a very underrated RB in the NFL and should get another 20+ carries against the Bills.

16. Mark Ingram - New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
Cleveland allowed Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell to go off and Ingram had another solid showing Sunday.

17. Andre Ellington - Arizona Cardinals: @ New York Giants
Ellington looked fine Monday and will get close to 20 touches again this week.

18. Rashad Jennings - New York Giants: vs Arizona
Jennings will have to get it done rushing and receiving this season. RB Andre Williams isn't a threat to take a lot of touches.

19. Shane Vereen - New England Patriots: @ Minnesota
Veeren plays a lot of snaps and should get a high volume of receptions.

20. Toby Gerhart - Jacksonville Jaguars: @ Washington
Gerhart should get many carries if his ankle is fine this Sunday.

21. Doug Martin - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs St. Louis
Got injured but could have success against the Rams if he can go.

22. C.J. Spiller - Buffalo Bills: vs Miami
Spiller is still going to be a boom or bust with Jackson splitting time with him.

23. Fred Jackson - Buffalo Bills: vs Miami
Jackson scored a rushing TD in each game against the Dolphins in 2013.

24. Zac Stacy - St. Louis Rams: @ Tampa Bay
Rushed the ball 33 times against them last year but RB Benny Cunningham is cutting down his carries.

25. Shonn Greene - Tennessee Titans: vs Dallas
Greene should find room to run against the Cowboys defense.

26. Ryan Mathews - San Diego Chargers: vs Seattle
Another very tough match-up for Mathews who had 14 touches on Monday.

27. Joique Bell - Detroit Lions: @ Carolina
Bell scored on MNF but there are a lot of mouths to feed on the Lions offense.

28. Darren McFadden - Oakland Raiders: vs Houston
The Texans allowed over 7 yards per carry last week. MJD likely out.

29. Reggie Bush - Detroit Lions: @ Carolina
Detroit's running game struggled against the Giants and the Panthers front-7 is better.

30. Justin Forsett - Baltimore Ravens: vs Pittsburgh
Forsett will likely be the starter at RB on Thursday and maybe the rest of the year.

31. Terrance West - Cleveland Browns: vs New Orleans
West had a solid Sunday with 100 yards rushing on 16 carries. The RB to own if Ben Tate can't go.

32. Pierre Thomas - New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
Thomas should be active again in the passing game.

33. Steven Jackson - Atlanta Falcons: @ Cincinnati
Jackson had 52 yards rushing against the Saints but it was the other RB's that found the end zone.

34. Carlos Hyde - San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
Hyde is clearly the more explosive RB but Gore will take most of the carries.

35. Trent Richardson - Indianapolis Colts: vs Philadelphia
T-Rich mustered 51 total yards with his nine touches on Sunday night.

36. Darren Sproles - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Indianapolis
Sproles will get his 10+ touches and is boom or bust.

37. Lamar Miller - Miami Dolphins: @ Buffalo
Outside of a fumble, Miller looked really good last week.

38. Ahmad Bradshaw - Indianapolis Colts: vs Philadelphia
Philly allows the 3rd fewest fantasy points to RB's so far in 2014.

39. Stevan Ridley - New England Patriots: @ Minnesota
Ridley barely played any snaps and got just 10 touches against Miami.

40. Chris Ivory - New York Jets: @ Green Bay
Ivory only has a chance at 10 carries if the game is close.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 2 WR Rankings

1. Calvin Johnson - Detroit Lions: @ Carolina
Johnson showed again why he is the best on Monday Night Football.

2. A.J. Green - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Atlanta
The Falcons still have a young secondary that can get torched deep.

3. Demaryius Thomas - Denver Broncos: vs Kansas City
The Chiefs CB's are non-existent. It's Demaryius' turn to dominate in the Broncos offense.

4. Dez Bryant - Dallas Cowboys: @ Tennessee
Would have been a tough match-up last year and looks like a tough match-up this year.

5. Julio Jones - Atlanta Falcons: @ Cincinnati
If Ravens WR Steve Smith can get behind the Bengals defense. Jones definitely can.

6. Antonio Brown - Pittsburgh Steelers: @ Baltimore
The Karate Kid had 116 yards and a TD last week. He'll get open.

7. Brandon Marshall - Chicago Bears: @ San Francisco
He's going to get targeted 10+ times again.

8. Jordy Nelson - Green Bay Packers: vs New York Jets
The Jets secondary is filled with no names.

9. Vincent Jackson - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs St. Louis
Jackson should get targeted often and the Rams secondary isn't very talented.

10. Alshon Jeffery - Chicago Bears: @ San Francisco
Suffered a hamstring injury but should be able to play against the 49ers.

11. Percy Harvin - Seattle Seahawks: @ San Diego
Had 100 total yards rushing and receiving last Thursday night.

12. Andre Johnson - Houston Texans: @ Oakland
Johnson had another good game receiving last week against Washington.

13. Larry Fitzgerald - Arizona Cardinals: @ New York Giants
The Giants were lost trying to cover Lions WR Calvin Johnson. Maybe they'll be lost covering Fitz.

14. Randall Cobb - Green Bay Packers: vs New York Jets
Cobb was in sync with QB Aaron Rodgers last Thursday night and even scored on Seattle.

15. Marques Colston - New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
110 yards but a costly fumble cost his team a potential victory against the Falcons.

16. DeSean Jackson - Washington Redskins: vs Jacksonville
Jackson hauled in eight of his nine targets Sunday. Good chance to put up huge numbers this week.

17. Emmanuel Sanders - Denver Broncos: vs Kansas City
Sanders was productive on Sunday night and again; the Chiefs have no CB's.

18. Eric Decker - New York Jets: @ Green Bay
New York will likely be playing from behind.

19. Mike Wallace - Miami Dolphins: @ Buffalo
Wallace was involved early and often against the Patriots.

20. Michael Floyd - Arizona Cardinals: @ New York Giants
Floyd looked like he could take over as the No. 1 WR soon Monday but it was just Week 1.

21. Kendall Wright - Tennessee Titans: vs Dallas
Wright scored which is a good sign and the Cowboys CB's play way off.

22. Julian Edelman - New England Patriots: @ Minnesota
All of Edelman's 116 yards came in the 1st half. Needs to be involved throughout the entire game for the Pats.

23. Jeremy Maclin - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Indianapolis
Maclin had a great start to the season but will be up against CB Vontae Davis.

24. Cordarrelle Patterson - Minnesota Vikings: vs New England
Incredible athlete but could be contained by the Patriots defense that didn't look too good Sunday.

25. Michael Crabtree - San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
Crabtree might actually be the No. 3 target in the 49ers passing game.

26. Pierre Garcon - Washington Redskins: vs Jacksonville
Garcon gets a lot of short passes.

27. Reggie Wayne - Indianapolis Colts: vs Philadelphia
Wayne is Luck's go-to WR still based on Sunday night.

28. Kelvin Benjamin - Carolina Panthers: vs Detroit
Benjamin is already looking dominant and could kill Detroit's secondary.

29. Roddy White - Atlanta Falcons: @ Cincinnati
Nice game Sunday but I still don't trust him. Bengals defense is tough at home.

30. Keenan Allen - San Diego Chargers: vs Seattle
Allen was bottled up by the Cardinals and likely will be again by the L.O.B.

31. T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts: vs Philadelphia
Hilton is a playmaker that just doesn't get into the end zone very often.

32. Victor Cruz - New York Giants: vs Arizona
Yeah so the Giants offense is awful. Wouldn't start Cruz.

33. Golden Tate - Detroit Lions: @ Carolina
The Panthers shut down the Bucs very tall WR's on Sunday. Tate looked good this week.

34. Torrey Smith - Baltimore Ravens: vs Pittsburgh
Smith averaged 77 yards and 0.5 TD's between the two games against the Steelers in 2013.

35. Justin Hunter - Tennessee Titans: vs Dallas
Led the team with 8 targets and is a big play/red zone threat.

36. Anquan Boldin - San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
Eight catches for 99 yards is very solid for Boldin last week.

37. DeAndre Hopkins - Houston Texans: @ Oakland
Hopkins had a long TD grab and the Raiders secondary is burnable.

38. Dwayne Bowe - Kansas City Chiefs: @ Denver
Back from his suspension, Bowe has to have a big game for his team to keep up with Denver.

39. Brandin Cooks - New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
Cooks was used in multiple ways and the Browns give up the 5th most fantasy points to WR's after Week 1.

40. Mike Evans - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs St. Louis
Evans is a physical mismatch for the Rams smaller CB's.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 2 TE Rankings

1. Jimmy Graham - New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
Graham should find the end zone this week against the Browns.

2. Julius Thomas - Denver Broncos: vs Kansas City
Thomas scored three times in Week 1.

3. Rob Gronkowski - New England Patriots: @ Minnesota
Gronk always has an excellent chance of scoring.

4. Greg Olsen - Carolina Panthers: vs Detroit
The Lions let a TE named Larry Donnell score on them. Olsen scored Sunday.

5. Vernon Davis - San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
The Bears didn't allow anything to Bills TE's in Week 1 but that's mostly because the Bills don't have a TE like Davis.

6. Zach Ertz - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Indianapolis
He had three catches for 77 yards and a TD last week and the Colts gave up three TD's to TE's last week.

7. Jordan Cameron - Cleveland Browns: vs New Orleans
Cameron caught a 47 yard pass and that's about it last Sunday. Should get more targets.

8. Jason Witten - Dallas Cowboys: @ Tennessee
Witten will have a much better game statistically this week.

9. Delanie Walker - Tennessee Titans: vs Dallas
The Cowboys gave up two easy TD's to 49ers TE Vernon Davis and Walker scored in Week 1.

10. Kyle Rudolph - Minnesota Vikings: vs New England
Patriots athletic OLB Jamie Collins could limit Rudolph's production.

11. Dennis Pitta - Baltimore Ravens: vs Pittsburgh
Pitta registered a solid 83 yards receiving against the Bengals on Sunday.

12. Charles Clay - Miami Dolphins: @ Buffalo
Clay was lackluster in the stat sheet last week and didn't do much against the Bills a year ago.

13. Jared Cook - St. Louis Rams: @ Tampa Bay
Cook can have another decent game this week against the Bucs.

14. Martellus Bennett - Chicago Bears: @ San Francisco
Bennett opened the Bears season with a TD and was targeted ten times last week.

15. Antonio Gates - San Diego Chargers: vs Seattle
Gates had a good game outside of a drop on Monday.

16. Dwayne Allen - Indianapolis Colts: vs Philadelphia
Allen had a nice touchdown against the Broncos but Philly was good against TE's in 2013.

17. Larry Donnell - New York Giants: vs Arizona
Surprisingly had a nice game with 56 yards and a TD on MNF. Cardinals terrible against TE's.

18. Heath Miller - Pittsburgh Steelers: @ Baltimore
Miller averaged a little over 7 fantasy points on Baltimore between the two games last season.

19. Travis Kelce - Kansas City Chiefs: @ Denver
The Chiefs big play TE should be able to get open on the Broncos.

20. Levine Toilolo - Atlanta Falcons: @ Cincinnati
Toilolo is a big target that scored in the red zone on Sunday.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 2 DST Rankings

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs St. Louis
It might be a long season for the Rams offense.

2. Arizona Cardinals: @ New York Giants
The Lions limited the Giants to under 200 yards of offense and the Cardinals defense looked good.

3. Houston Texans: @ Oakland
The Texans defense should dominate Oakland.

4. Denver Broncos: vs Kansas City
The Chiefs struggled at home against the Titans Sunday and now face a better pass rush.

5. St. Louis Rams: @ Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay's offense didn't look all that good either but were facing a great defense.

6. New England Patriots: @ Minnesota
The Patriots need to stop Vikes RB Adrian Peterson and Revis needs to play better.

7. Seattle Seahawks: @ San Diego
Seahawks defense on the road isn't as intimidating and the Chargers have QB Philip Rivers.

8. San Francisco 49ers: vs Chicago
The 49ers defense has a lot of offensive weapons to stop this week but Cutler throws those picks.

9. Carolina Panthers: vs Detroit
Carolina also should have a tough test trying to stop the Lions offense.

10. Cincinnati Bengals: vs Atlanta
The Bengals defense racked up the fantasy points at home in 2013.

11. Miami Dolphins: @ Buffalo
Miami's defense will destroy the Bills if they play like they did in the 2nd half against the Patriots.

12. New Orleans Saints: @ Cleveland
The Saints gave up a ton of points and yards to the Falcons but should turn it around this week.

13. Washington Redskins: vs Jacksonville
Jacksonville continued to give up 10+ fantasy points to defenses in Week 1.

14. Detroit Lions: @ Carolina
Detroit will stop the run but also needs to force turnovers and get sacks.

15. Jacksonville Jaguars: @ Washington
Washington gave up 20 fantasy points to the Texans defense and the Jags defense got five sacks on Sunday.

* I won't be ranking kickers. Just pick a kicker with a good offense or a kicker that is going against a terrible team.
