Fantasy Football: Matthew Stafford and 7 Other Keys in Week 2

The NFL 2011-2012 season is finally under way, which means only one thing, fantasy football is in full swing as well.

Clearly the first week of the NFL season is one of the most questionable for fantasy owners.

When you are drafting your team, there is not a lot to go off of. Preseason play does not mean much and you never know if good teams will still dominate or vice versa (just look at the Buffalo Kansas City matchup), so all an owner has to go off of is last year's statistics.

You can look at video from last year and preseason all you want, but as an owner, you really do not know what type of team you have until after Week 1. After you finally see your players playing four straight quarters in games that matter can a fantasy owner reflect on whether or not his draft was successful or not.

So with Week 2 on the horizon, it's time to take a look at some of the players that played well last week and look at next week's matchups to see who owners should start.

Some players you should start because they simply played well last week, like Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt.

Or some players should get the start because they have a much more favorable matchup this week than they did last week, like Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels.

Regardless of why you should start a player or not, here are eight players that every owner should start in Week 2.
