Fantasy Football Preview, Week 2: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em at Wide Receiver

    We are just two days away from Week 2 of the NFL season and that means fantasy owners must decide whether to start or sit certain players.

    Wide receiver is one of the hardest positions to decide on since there are so many variables that determine their potentials for success.

    Here are four WRs who fantasy owners might be wrestling with over whether to start 'em or sit 'em.

Nate Washington, Tennesse Titans

    Week 2 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em: Start 'Em

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are a very good defense against the run and that should limit the amount of yards that Chris Johnson will get.

    If the Tennessee Titans are going to win this game, then they are going to need a big game from Vince Young.  Nate Washington should benefit from this and will have a big game himself.

    Look for Washington to get about 100 yards and a score on Sunday vs the Steelers.

Randy Moss, New England Patriots

    Week 2 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em: Sit 'Em

    Randy Moss will be welcomed back to Revis Island this Sunday when the New England Patriots face off against the New York Jets.

    Although Darelle Revis is nursing a hamstring and didn't have any reps in preseason, he will still shut down Moss.

    Also working against Moss is his attitude.  He has been very vocal about his contract situation lately, which might be a cause for concern for fantasy owners.

Wes Welker, New England Patriots

    Week 2 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em: Start 'Em

    Wes Welker will have another big game for the New England Patriots Sunday, with Darelle Revis tied up with Randy Moss.

    Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson couldn't cover anyone last week and that should give some opportunities for Tom Brady to hit Welker going across the middle.

    Revis can't cover all the Pats wideouts and it will show when Welker puts up 120+ yards and a score vs. the New York Jets.

Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs

    Week 2 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em: Sit 'Em

    Matt Cassel had one of his best games last season vs. the Cleveland Browns in December, but Dwayne Bowe was not that much of a part of it, only having four catches for 56 yards.

    After a terrible Week 1 due to the lack of production from the quarterback and wet conditions, it doesn't seem to get better in Week 2 for Bowe.

    Tony Moeaki and Chris Chambers were Cassel's top targets in Week 1 and it will stay the same in Week 2.
