Fantasy Football Week 2: Projecting the NFL's Top Scorers
There's only one thing that matters in fantasy football: scoring! Fantasy football isn't about shutouts or field goal battles, it's about out-shooting your opponent to victory.
As such, the most important players from week to week are those that put up the most points—genius, I know!
Aaron Rodgers: 400-plus yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs
The Panthers lack the pass rush to get to Rodgers, while their secondary won't be able to match up to the team's receiving depth.
Matthew Stafford: 350-plus yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs
Stafford is going against a defense that was dominated by Ryan Fitzpatrick last week.
Fitzpatrick finished the game with four touchdowns, including two to tight end Scott Chandler. The tight ends figure to see a lot of action in this game as the Chiefs are without Eric Berry for the year.
Philip Rivers: 330-plus yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs
Rivers will get the chance to go against a Patriots defense that was gashed by Chad Henne last week.
Expect a big game from Vincent Jackson as Devin McCourty gave up nine receptions on 15 targets last week. Those nine receptions allowed for 151 yards, and Vincent Jackson could replicate those numbers.
Tom Brady: 320-plus yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs
It should be a tougher test for Brady this weekend as he goes against a very talented secondary in San Diego.
The one thing working in Brady's favor, as far as the Chargers' defense goes, is that Luis Castillo will miss the game and Larry English was inactive last week.
However, the Chargers' starting secondary is outstanding and will be much tougher for the team to break down than the Dolphins were.
Darren McFadden: 180 rushing yards, 3 TDs, 50 receiving yards
However, it shouldn't be lost on the Raiders that the Chiefs averaged 6.0 yards per carry as a team. The Raiders love to run the football and McFadden had a huge Week 1.
He should also see some action in the screen game as the Raiders look to avoid constantly going against the Bills' talented secondary.
LeSean McCoy: 150 rushing yards, 2 TDs, 70 receiving yards
McCoy showed his pace last week on the turf in the Edward Jones Dome and should do the same against the Falcons in the Georgia Dome.
The Falcons are a good run defense, but could be in trouble without Jonathan Babineaux, as well as the focus on stopping Vick.
Peyton Hillis: 140 rushing yards, 2 TDs, 15 receiving yards, 1 TD
Hillis is the worst possible type of runner for the Indianapolis Colts to face. He's a violent runner that looks to punish defenders every time he gets the ball.
Much like Adrian Peterson, every time you tackle Hillis, you feel it.
Hillis will be able to put up huge numbers as he runs through the Colts' soft defense.
