Week 2 is in the books, so now it's time to take an early look at this week's fantasy football "Start 'em and Sit 'em" picks.
Before we do that, though, let's take a look back at how things went last week.
Carson Palmer: 248 yards passing, 1 TD, 1 INT
LeSean McCoy: 53 yards rushing, 5 catches, 114 yards receiving
Jerome Simpson: 2 catches, 49 yards receiving
James Jones: 11 catches, 178 yards receiving
Alex Smith: 223 yards passing, 2 TD
You can count the "50/50" category however you want. They ended up being middling starts—not great, not bad (depending on scoring).
I was close on the Spiller call—one 46-yard run away from being right. Then again, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, so that's a miss. On the other hand, LeSean McCoy's unexpected receiving performance helped round out a perfect trifecta on last week's Eagles predictions.
So, it evens out.
This week, we've got another full slate of selections. Let me know whom you are definitely starting and certainly avoiding in the comments.
