Here’s a look at LestersLegends sit and start advice as you set your lineups for the second week of the NFL season.

Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Oakland:  Without Nnamdi Asomugha the Raiders allowed 305 yards to the Broncos. Fitzpatrick is coming off a four-touchdown game against Kansas City. It looks like last year was not a fluke for the Bills’ passing attack.

Sam Bradford @ New York Giants:  He’s banged up, but will play. The same can’t be said for his starting running back Steven Jackson. The Giants are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Redskins so they will be plenty motivated at home.

Running Backs
Tim Hightower vs. Arizona:  Hightower gets a shot at revenge against his former team. His yards per carry (2.9) was awful, but he got the job done with 97 total yards and a score.

Reggie Bush vs. Houston:  True to their word the Dolphins heavily utilized Bush against the Pats. Houston is going to come out firing so the Dolphins will likely be playing catch up again, which bodes well for Bush.

DeAngelo Williams vs. Green Bay:  The Panthers will likely get down big early, which will force them to all but abandon the run.

Wide Receivers
Davone Bess vs. Houston:  As I mentioned with Reggie, the Dolphins will be throwing a lot against the Texans. Bess had five catches for 92 yards last week and should turn in another solid performance.

Jeremy Maclin @ Atlanta:  Malcin made it through Week 1, but I’m still not convinced all is right with him. Use him at your own risk.

Tight Ends
Kellen Winslow @ Minnesota:  The Vikings struggle to stop tight ends, which should play into Winslow’s favor. So should the Bucs’ early struggles running the football.

Dallas Clark vs. Cleveland:  The Browns allowed a TE touchdown last week, but I don’t have any trust in anyone on Indy outside of Reggie Wayne right now.

Detroit Lions vs. Kansas City:  The Chiefs looked terrible at home last week and now they get to face the up-and-coming Lions at home.

San Diego Chargers @ New England:  Do you really want your defense going up against New England’s offense right now?
