5 NFL Players Set for Monster Games This Week

1 of 6

    Quarterbacks put up huge numbers in Week 1 of the NFL season.  While they were getting most of the coverage, some notable performances were somewhat forgotten about.  

    This is a list of the five players who I expect to have monster games this week.

    Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts.

Ray Rice

2 of 6

    Ray Rice had a huge game versus a tough Steelers defense in Week 1.  He should have a much easier matchup against the Titans this week.  He should put up similar or even better numbers than in Week 1.

Jermichael Finley

3 of 6

    Jermichael Finley showed last week that his knee appears fully healed.  He will be going up against a Panthers defense that will have a hard enough time covering guys like Greg Jennings and Donald Driver on the outside, let alone Finley in the middle.  Now that stud linebacker Jon Beason is out for the year, Finley should have an even easier time against Carolina in Week 2.

Jahvid Best

4 of 6

    Jahvid Best ran for 72 yards and caught four passes for an additional 42 yards against Tampa Bay in Week 1.  He should be able to easily exploit a Chiefs defense that gave up 42 points to the Bills in Week 1.

Andre Johnson

5 of 6

    Andre Johnson seems to put up huge numbers almost every week.  He had seven catches for 95 yards and a TD in Week 1 and is facing a Dolphins defense that gave up 521 passing yards to the Patriots last week.  "The Beast" should be able to do what he always does yet again this week.

Darren McFadden

6 of 6

    Darren McFadden led all rushers last week with a whopping 150 yards.  He should rack up yards once again against the Bills this week.  Look for him to possibly lead the NFL in rushing this season if he can stay healthy.
