This is a big week for Fantasy Football Owners. Fantasy teams that won are looking to jump out to a fast 2-0 start. Teams that lost are hoping to avoid a 0-2 start to the season.
The key this week is not to panic because one of your players had a bad game. The season is a marathon, not a sprint, and the most talented players are still poised to have a big season, even if they came up short in Week One.
My best advice is that good players have bad games every once in a while and bad players have good games occasionally. Over the course of a 16-game season, things even out.
Since it would be impossible to list every player, if you do not see the players that are causing you a headache this week, please leave a comment and one of our experts will respond to you within 24 hours.

Again, not a reason to cut him, as Hall of Fame RB Walter Payton had eight carries for zero yards in his first NFL game with the Chicago Bears. Just do not start Spiller against the best run defense in the NFL from 2009...
