NFL Week 2 Fantasy Football Sleepers
Week 2! Its time to put the women and children to bed and go out looking for dinner! Week 1 was a roller coaster. We had some big time hits and some heartbreaking misses. The performance that we hoped OBJ had was one week off, as he had an awesome game on Thursday night and returned the value that we wanted form him at such a low cost...but he didn't do shit in week 1. We are not going to hit them all. Nobody gets 100% of the calls correct but when we can bring home a few each week that makes a huge difference.
The Josh Jacobs call was a huge play for us last week. He was our number one play on the book and we had him in a majority of lineups. Jacobs was the main reason that we were able to turn last week's shitshow into a profit. Cam ended up having a decent enough game at his price to differentiate our lineups just enough and Ertz and Goedert both put up solid numbers at tight-end. Defense on the other hand was a complete mess. Both the Eagles and the Colts did not do anything close to what we expected. We would have been better off by playing the Washington D, who look like they may be the real deal with an explosive Defensive line.
Overall, Jacobs, Cam and Juju held it down for the SportsWave in week 1. Who will it be this week?
We are coming into week 2 with a little better of an idea of what to look for. Last week was essentially the pre-season. We saw some big injuries (James Connor getting hurt crushed Starfishes lineup and Leveon going down was a bummer for us as well) and some lackluster performances (Wentz started off hot as hell but when he cooled off he was as frozen as the Jamaican bobsled team was in Cool Runnings).
Keep in mind that these plays are to be used as sleepers and are meant to be used in correlation with your stars. We choose low usage and low cost plays that will make your lineups different form others in big field DFS tournaments (GPPs). The goal is to use some of these plays along with the no-brainer (star) plays and make the perfect lineup so you can bring home the Turkey! Buy a house, a new car, waste it all on ladies of the night and party items. Spend it on whatever the hell is your fancy. That is up to you but it all starts here.
QB- MATTY ICE-PLAYING MORE MATT RYAN THEN WE ANTICIPATED. MURRAY AND LAMAR ARE STILL OUT TOP QB PLAY BUT WE ARE THROWING SOME RYAN LINEUPS IN AS A MID-TIER BETWEEN THE GUNS AND THE CHEAP PLAYS (TEDDY). THE ATL/DAL GAME IS GOING TO BE A SHOOTOUT. THE BET ON THIS GAME IS THE OVER FOR SURE.
RB- MILES SANDERS- IT LOOKS LIKE MILES SANDERS WILL NOT BE LIMITED AT ALL. THE BIRDS NEED HIM TO THRIVE. WE EXPECT BIG NUMBERS FORM THE EAGLES RB1.
FOURNETTE- WE ARE GOING TO ROLL THE DICE AND THROW HIM INTO A SMALL PERCENTAGE (ABOUT 10%) OF LINEUPS. WE CANT GUARANTEE THAT HE SEES AN INCREASED WORKLOAD BUT HE HAS TO MUCH TALENT TO BE SITTING ON THE SIDELINE. BRADY AND THE BOYS WILL NEED HIM AND WE ARE BETTING ON IT BEING SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
WR- MIKE EVANS WILL SEE AN INCREASED AMOUNT OF TARGETS WITH GODWIN OUT. HE IS GOING TO BE HIGHLY OWNED THOUGH SO THIS PLAY WONT MAKE YOUR LINEUP CONTRARIAN BUT YOU MAY NEED HIM IN TO KEEP UP WITH EVERYONE ON THE WAY TO THE TOP.
RUGGS AND SUTTON ARE BOTH UP IN THE AIR BECAUSE OF INJURIES. SUTTON IS FACING THE TOP DEFENSE IN THE LEAGUE (PITT) AND RUGGS PLAYS MONDAY NIGHT AND MAY NOT BE WORTH HOLDING IN YOUR LINEUP (ALTHOUGH IF HE PLAYS I SEE HIM HAVING A NICE GAME). WE ARE LOOKING ELSEWHERE THIS WEEK.
TE-JONNU SMITH-HE WILL GET LOOKS IN THE TENNESSE PASSING GAME. IF YOU JUST NEED A DECENT CONTRIBUTION AT A LOW COST. JONNU IS YOUR GUY.
D- TENNESSE IS OUR GO TO IF YOU CNAT FIT BUFFALO OR SAN FRAN INTO YOUR LINEUP.
Here is what we are looking at for Week 2:
Week 1 wasn’t my best performance to say the least with picks but it’s a weird year and I expect things to even out once the offenses get rolling . With that being said here is my week 2 picks
