Here’s a look at LestersLegends sit and start advice as you set your lineups for the second week of the 2012 NFL season.


Quarterbacks


Start

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears: He was the choice last week and I’ll roll with him again vs. the Packers. With his big wideouts, he could work his way into weekly WR1 territory.

 

Sit

Matt Schaub, Houston Texans: It’s not that I think he’ll have a bad game. I just don’t think he’ll be needed to do much against Jacksonville.

 


Running Backs


Start

Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins: You never know when Shanahan is going to change his mind, but until he does, Morris should get plenty of activity. Going up against the Rams only strengthens his position this week.

 

Sit

Michael Turner, Atlanta Falcons: The switch to a pass-first team is underway. Turner is hard to trust at this point.

 


Wide Receivers

Start

Lance Moore, New Orleans Saints:  As long as he’s healthy Brees will look his way. He’s has a knack for getting into the end zone.

 

Sit

Laurent Robinson and Justin Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars: I don’t like either of their prospects against the stingy Texans’ defense.

 


Tight Ends


Start

Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts: The Vikings struggle to contain tight ends and Fleener is Luck’s second option. Should lead to a nice game for the rookie.

 

Sit

Fred Davis, Washington Redskins: RG3 hardly looked his way in the opener. I need further convincing before I would start him over a plethora of solid TE choices out there.

 


Defenses


Start

Oakland Raiders: They kept San Diego from having a big offensive output. They should do the same against Miami.

 

Sit

Philadelphia Eagles: If you saw Baltimore pile on the points, it’s hard to trust even a solid unit like Philly’s to slow them down.
