Hello fantasy owners, I hope you all had a pleasant and successful week 1 in the fantasy world of football.
Last week I gave my predictions on some players that I felt should start or sit during week 1. For example, I predicted that Felix Jones would have a mediocre game and he did. Jones had 38 yards rushing.
I projected that he would have 47 yards rushing. Moreover, I predicted that the Baltimore Ravens would keep the New York Jets under ten point. Guess what? They did!
The list can go on and on. They're were many others that I foreboded would produce or stumble. You can check out my recent article in my archives.
Anyhow, I'm here again to provide all fantasy projections for week 2.
If you have any questions on certain players, please feel free to leave a comment.
This eagle is ready to fly. Michael Vick showed the National Football League his value to his team. Vick finally got the opportunity he was waiting for.
When Kevin Kolb suffered a concussion and was forced to leave the game, Vick stepped into the game for the injured Kolb and almost brought back the Eagles from a large deficit.
The Philadelphia Inquiry reports that Vick is practicing with the team's first offense. This week the Eagles go to Detroit to face the Lions.
Vick is going to have a huge game. It's his time to shine, if you got him, start him.
My projection of Michael Vick for week 2: 75 yards rushing, 245 yards passing, and three passing touchdowns.
The only bright spot to the Oakland Raiders last week was Darren Mcfadden. He rushed for 95 yards and contributed with 55 yards receiving.
This week Mcfadden plays against the St. Louis Rams which seems to be a team in turmoil. I expect Mcfadden to have a big game this week.
I definitely would start Mcfadden in this weeks match up.
My projection for Mcfadden in week 2: 125 yards rushing, 45 yards receiving, and one touchdown.
Jay Cutler opened the 2010 season with a huge fantasy breakout. He collectively had 372 yards passing.
In contrast he did fumble and throw an interception in week 1 versus the rebuilding Detroit Lions.
This week he plays against the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys defence is at its prime for the time being.
With that said, look for Cutler to struggle as he will be faced with a lot of pressure. On that note, please sit Cutler for week 2.
My projection for Jay Cutler in week 2: 235 yards passing, two interceptions, one fumble, and one touchdown.
As reported by Ohm Youngmisuk, Hakeem Nicks did not participate in most of this weeks practices. He is listed as day to day.
Nicks did post some unique numbers in week 1. Look for him to be less of a target in week 2. The training staff of the Giants are watching his progression extremely carefully.
His ankle seems to be a big problem at the moment. I would sit Nicks for week 2.
My projection if Nicks plays in week 2: three catches, 35 yards receiving
Carson Palmer had a great game against the New England Patriots. Even though the Bengals played catchup for most of the game, he did show some sign of greatness.
This week they play against a stingy Baltimore Ravens defence which may cause some problems for the Bengals offence to unravel.
If you got Palmer in your fantasy roster, please sit him for week 2.
My projection for Palmer in week 2 is: 235 yards passing, two touchdowns, one fumble, and one interception.
DeAngelo Williams had a mediocre week 1. He contributed 62 yards rushing against the New York Giants.
In week 2 he plays against the team he had a lot of success against. Williams goes up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In seven games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Williams posted 502 yards rushing on 93 attempts(5.5 yards average). Moreover, he complimented that stat with six touchdowns.
If you got Williams, do the right thing and start him.
My projection for Williams in week 2: 18 rushes for 105 yards rushing, two touchdowns, 25 yards receiving.
Brent Celek of the Philadelphia Eagles struggled during the home opener versus the Green Bay Packers.
Without a doubt the Packers had a defensive plan to stop Celek from being effective. In week 2 though the tide will turn.
Celek and the eagles go up against a struggling Detroit Lions. If there was a player in my mind that will have a big impact in a game this week, I would go with Celek.
Celek will post some astronomical numbers.
My projection of Brent Celek in week 2: eight catches, 110 yards receiving, one touchdown
The Tennessee Titans will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 2 of the National Football League.
The titans have been improving in the defensive department. If they can shut down Rashard Mendanhall in week 2, the Titans will have a big game on defence.
My projection for the Titans in week 2: under 13 points allowed, two interceptions, two forced fumbles
In week 2 the San Diego Chargers play against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are going to be tested from all cylinders in week 2.
Malcom Floyd is the Chargers number one receiver at the moment. Even though he struggled in week 1 of the 2010 season, he still had 43 yards receiving.
This week will be a better week for Floyd. Look for him to get at least six catches.
My projection for Malcom Floyd in week 2: six catches, 105 yards receiving, one touchdown.
With every season there comes a time when an athlete suffers an injury and the player that replaces him becomes a star.
I know this is a big thing to predict, but something tells me that Brandon Jackson is gonna be something special for the Packers.
I cannot back it up with statistics at the moment, but I can say that he has some good speed and awareness.
He showed some signs of potential in week 1 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. Furthermore, Jackson has Aaron Rodgers. What I mean by this is that defences will be thinking of the pass more often. This will enable more holes for Jackson to run through.
My projection for Jackson in week 2: 85 yards rushing, one touchdown, 35 yards receiving
