Fantasy Football Week 2: Sleeper Quarterbacks You Must Start
Fantasy football is all about finding sleepers to put your team over the top, and there are a number of sleeper quarterbacks in Week 2 who you must start.
Most of you will probably not have Peyton Manning on your roster, so it's imperative to find a QB who can put up solid numbers without making too many mistakes.
Who are the sleeper quarterbacks you must start? Read on to find out.
Terrelle Pryor had a very impressive debut as a quarterback for the Oakland Raiders. He threw for 217 yards and a touchdown, and also finished as the second-leading rusher in the league. He scampered for 112 yards in Week 1.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have struggled against mobile quarterbacks. The Jags gave up five rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks last season, which was third-most in the league.
Pryor is clearly unrefined as a passer, and he's going to throw some picks—he threw two against the Indianapolis Colts last week. And while the Jaguars have trouble stopping the run, they only gave up 171 yards through the air last week, good for seventh-best in the league.
But there's good reason to take a chance on Pryor, especially in two-quarterback leagues. He has the potential to put up big rushing numbers, and could easily score multiple times with his legs. If you have a stud as your top quarterback, put Pryor in as a solid QB2.
Carson Palmer had a nice debut for the Arizona Cardinals, throwing for 327 yards and two scores.
He's going up against a Detroit Lions defense that gave up 225 yards to Christian Ponder.
While those are good numbers, let's be clear: Carson Palmer, even in the twilight of his career, is a much better quarterback than Ponder. Palmer has much better weapons.
And Palmer doesn't have Adrian Peterson to lean on. The Cardinals have just a middling run game, as they rushed for just 86 yards last week.
The Lions and Cardinals will likely be in a shootout, meaning Palmer has the chance to put up big numbers. Palmer will find Larry Fitzgerald early and often and will put up a few touchdowns.
Palmer will never be a QB1 again, but if you're in need of a sleeper, you could do much worse than Palmer.
Sam Bradford has found a dynamic new weapon in Jared Cook. The tight end caught seven passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns.
Finally, Bradford has a go-to target, especially on third downs. This makes Bradford an essential play this week. Between Cook, and Tavon Austin, who caught six passes for 41 yards in his NFL debut, Bradford has enough weapons to be a viable starter.
That's not to mention that the Rams have a pretty abysmal running game. Rams running backs rushed for just 67 yards last week. Against the Atlanta Falcons, who gave up a whopping 341 yards in the air against the New Orleans Saints last week, it's a good bet that Bradford will put up big numbers.
It looks like Bradford is finally living up to his No. 1 overall pick status. He's a sleeper who could put up big numbers, and he's a must-start in two-quarterback leagues.
