Fantasy Football: 10 Offensive Studs For Week 2
Week 2 of NFL Football starts tomorrow, and the time has come to figure out who you're starting in your fantasy football league.
Don't know which offensive players will earn you the most points this week?
We got you covered!
From quarterbacks to tight ends, here is a list of ten offensive studs to give you the edge this Sunday.
10. Jermaine Gresham TE CIN
The Bengals will take on the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday, and starting a Cincinnati offensive player is a gamble against such a strong defense.
However, expect Carson Palmer to play some more conservative offense against the Ravens, and expect Jermaine Gresham to get some looks at the tight end position with some short passes.
9. Dallas Clark TE IND

Clark caught 11 passes for 80 yards and a touchdown last week against the Texans, and in this Sunday's showdown between Indianapolis and the New York Giants, we can expect this tight end to be even more productive.
This game will be all about offense, and the Colts will depend n Dallas Clark for at least one touchdown.
8. Santana Moss WR WAS

Moss put up some pretty good numbers last week against a strong Dallas defense, catching six passes for 77 yards.
On Sunday, the Redskins will face a much weaker defense in the Houston Texans, so expect Moss to improve upon these numbers.
7. Michael Turner RB ATL

Turner is really good at home against even the strongest defenses, and the Falcons will be playing an easier game this week than they did last Sunday against the Steelers.
The Cardinals' defense is much weaker than that of Pittsburgh, so Turner will have the opportunity to add to his 18 home game touchdowns in the Georgia Dome.
6. Sam Bradford QB STL

It's hard to argue with the 55 passing attempts by Bradford in his NFL debut with the Rams.
Taking a chance on Bradford this Sunday against the Raiders could pay off.
5. Visanthe Shiancoe TE MIN

The Dolphins were third in the league last year in yards allowed to the tight end position, so starting Visanthe Shiancoe against Miami is a very good idea.
Brett Favre seems to have developed a good relationship with Shiancoe, so expect plenty of action from this tight end.
4. Andre Johnson WR HOU

Even after a breakout performance by Arian Foster, the Texans offense can't win a game without leaving the ground.
Wide receiver Andre Johnson will greatly improve upon his dismal numbers against the Colts when the Texans take on the Redskins.
Foster is good, but don't forget that Houston led the league in passing yards last season.
3. Michael Vick QB PHI

Vick looked really good against Green Bay last week and almost led the Eagles to a comeback over the Packers.
This week, Philly faces a much weaker opponent in the Detroit Lions, so expect Vick to have a great game.
2. Adrian Peterson RB MIN

Adrian Peterson remains the driving force on the Vikings' offense, and he will put up some good numbers against the Dolphins.
Peterson averages around 110 yards per game at home, and a shaky Dolphins defense won't be able to stop him.
1. Pick a Manning
Sunday's matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants will be a battle of the quarterbacks, so starting either of the Manning brothers is a very good idea this week.
