2012 Fantasy Football: NFL Week 2 Sit 'Em

Off to a hot start, we’re back with the second edition of the weekly Sit 'Em players for your fantasy teams. 

I’ll admit, the first week of the NFL season is always the most difficult to sit some of your top players. Why would you have wanted to sit Marshawn Lynch when he was good to go and you spent a second-round pick on him? 

Honestly, if I had drafted him, I probably would have started him based on that alone. However, sometimes you have to make tough decisions for the good of your team. 

In Week 1 our predictions were pretty spot on, though, other than Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning. I can’t imagine many people expected Peterson to break out for two touchdowns. However, we did say to start Peyton, just to be cautious about the Steelers D. Turns out there was nothing to be cautious about; Manning is amazing. 

I will gladly take a 7-2 record. And yes: I am keeping score throughout the year.

Yet, there is always room to improve, and I feel this week we have nailed it. 

Now that we have a week of wiggle room to work with, players and matchups to avoid become a little bit clearer. The guys on this list are either facing injury, a tough matchup or are just plain past their prime.

Here are some players to think twice about before starting them in Week 2.
