There is a time and a place to discuss players like Stephen Hill and Alfred Morris, two excellent waiver prospects for this week. There's also a time and a place to discuss Tony Romo or Andre Johnson, two solid fantasy talents who should be starting in every league.
This is not that place.
I'm here today to discuss only the best of the best, the top players at each position this week in fantasy football. I'm only looking at the projections for this week, which is why you'll see Eli Manning (playing the Bucs) jumping over Aaron Rodgers (playing the Bears) this time around. Does this mean you should trade Aaron Rodgers? Of course, and you should send me $100 while you're at it. But for the non-gullible among us, this article should simply give an indication of which players will help you win your fantasy matchup in Week 2.
All projections in this article are courtesy of the lovable stat-nerds at numberFire.com, who also help make projections for ESPN Insider and SI, among other places. Before you ask, yes, I'm aware that you can't have two-fifths of a completion, but the stats here are based off of averages run by the numberFire simulations. You're welcome to disagree with these rankings, but just know that you're not just disagreeing with me, you're disagreeing with math. The point totals given here are based off of a standard non-PPR league.
And with that explanation, we're off!
