Week 2 Fantasy QB Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts at quarterback

We will achieve a issue this time in which some of our favourite preseason QB sleepers are well worth considering as fantasy starters. 7 days two is not it, although. By coincidence much more than something, the quarterbacks with the finest matchups are also the tested commodities that you possible drafted as your starter, be that younger stars like Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes or tested veterans like Tom Brady and Matt Ryan. Daniel Jones, Drew Lock and Gardner Minshew, even though playable at some issue this time, are effectively down our 7 days two fantasy QB rankings.

With that mentioned, there are a handful of matchups in our major 12 well worth supplying you pause. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks host New England. Seattle is generally a difficult area to vacation to, but with enthusiast constraints in area, 7 days two will be our initially shot at seeing how that home-area edge is influenced. We’ve talked about currently this time how the Patriots’ protection is not possible to arrive shut to repeating previous time, but it is nonetheless a proficient unit that we can assume to plan effectively to halt a exclusive expertise like Wilson. Although Wilson is nonetheless a fantasy starter this 7 days, his upside is capped by the difficult matchup.

Functioning back | Vast receiver | Limited end | D/ST | Kicker

On the other facet of that sport is Cam Newton, who appeared like a prepared runner in 7 days one for the initially time in a lengthy time. He observed the end zone 2 times with his legs, although he only threw 19 passes. In advance of the time, we mentioned Newton necessary to get back his dashing capacity to get back fantasy relevance. Now that he’s performed that, he’s at minimum in thought to begin each 7 days, though we’re not insane about the excursion to Seattle for 7 days two.

Functioning back | Vast receiver | Limited end | D/ST | Kicker

There is also some purpose to be worried about Deshaun Watson going versus the Ravens. Watson’s 7 days one stat line ended up turning out Okay, but his passing and dashing touchdown both equally came when the sport in Kansas Town was effectively out of achieve. Baltimore has one of the NFL’s major defenses, and Watson appeared like he skipped DeAndre Hopkins in the opener. Taking part in Baltimore also potential customers to considerations about time of possession, which KC designed an situation versus Houston. Watson, as well, continues to be a starter this 7 days, although he has less upside than regular.

7 days two Fantasy QB Rankings

These rankings are for 4-issue passing TD leagues.

Rank Player
one Lamar Jackson, BAL @ HOU
two Patrick Mahomes, KC @ LAC
three Kyler Murray, ARZ vs. WAS.  We had some worry about Murray’s 7 days one matchup with the 49ers, and both equally on the ground and by way of the air the 2nd-year QB proved it was no dilemma. Washington’s go hurry did stifle Carson Wentz some, but Murray is at one more degree correct now and must be begun in each and every league.
4 Dak Prescott, DAL vs. ATL. Dak and the Cowboys struggled to obtain time to toss versus a strong L.A. Rams go hurry Sunday night time. Atlanta should not pose the same difficulties, although, so Prescott must obtain time to toss deep to Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb. In 7 days one, it was Russell Wilson versus the Falcons who put up the most fantasy factors of any QB on Sunday.
five Aaron Rodgers, GB vs. DET
six Russell Wilson, SEA vs. NE. The Patriots picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick a few moments, but that is not a great deal to read into when deciding no matter whether to perform Russ. He’s possible the finest QB on your roster by a first rate margin, so you must hold participating in him and hold reaping the benefits.
7 Josh Allen, BUF @ MIA. Allen had a big 7 days one inspite of two highly-priced fumbles when the Charges had been closing in on the end zone. Miami allow Cam Newton operate on them a bunch in 7 days one, and Allen could adhere to that blueprint this 7 days to one more big fantasy day.
eight Matt Ryan, ATL @ DAL. Ryan flew earlier 400 yards passing in 7 days one on the back of garbage-time reduce defenses. That is one thing Ryan has develop into extremely very good at in latest seasons, and if almost nothing else, you can rely on that late versus one more strong opponent.
nine Deshaun Watson, HOU vs. BAL
ten Ben Roethlisberger, PIT vs. DEN
11 Tom Brady, TB vs. Vehicle. Brady threw two interceptions, which includes a decide-6, versus the Saints. On the dazzling facet, Carolina just allowed 34 factors to the Raiders. This is a wonderful bounceback prospect for Brady, but 7 days one confirmed that there could be some increasing pains in Tampa Bay, even for the G.O.A.T.
12 Drew Brees, NO @ LV. With Michael Thomas on the lookout at a multi-7 days absence, Brees turns into a reputable sit candidate. Emmanuel Sanders didn’t search like a sport-changer in 7 days one. The greatest purpose to hold Brees in your lineup this 7 days is the matchup – the Raiders just allowed Teddy Bridgewater to have a good sport.
13 Jared Goff, LAR @ PHI
14 Ryan Tannehill, Ten vs. JAX
fifteen Matthew Stafford, DET @ GB
sixteen Jimmy Garoppolo, SF @ NYJ
seventeen Carson Wentz, PHI vs. LAR. If Wentz’s struggles versus the Washington go hurry are any indication, he could struggle once more in 7 days two versus the Rams’ front that stifled Dak Prescott. Wentz could be assisted by the return of Miles Sanders, which would include a multi-faceted dynamism to this attack.
18 Cam Newton, NE @ SEA. Newton ran fifteen moments for seventy five yards and a touchdown in 7 days one. And even though the eye check is not every little thing, Newton appeared wholesome even though on the transfer, as well. That was constantly going to be the greatest essential for him, so Newton is on the verge of remaining a fantasy starter the moment once more.
19 Philip Rivers, IND vs. MIN
twenty Gardner Minshew, JAX @ Ten. Minshew only threw one incompletion in 7 days one, and he led the Jags to an upset get. Tennessee probably attributes a little bit much more defensive expertise than Indianapolis, but Minshew may possibly reward from the emergence of rookie Laviska Shenault to harmony that out. 
21 Daniel Jones, NYG @ CHI
22 Kirk Cousins, MIN @ IND
23 Joe Burrow, CIN @ CLE. Burrow seriously struggled in 7 days one, and a quick 7 days prior to participating in the Browns on Thursday Night Football could spell difficulties. Myles Garrett will be licking his chops for this matchup. The greatest in addition for Burrow fantasy owners was his willingness to operate in 7 days one, which could preserve his price in months with a difficult matchup.
24 Mitchell Trubisky, CHI vs. NYG
twenty five Baker Mayfield, CLE vs. CIN. Mayfield’s rookie time feels like a lengthy time ago, and not just mainly because of the time-warping pandemic. His interceptions Sunday had been in component mainly because Baltimore is very good defensively, but they had been also just unpleasant plays on Mayfield’s component. You can not believe in starting up Mayfield right up until we see drastic changes in his performance.
26 Tyrod Taylor, LAC vs. KC. Taylor didn’t operate more than enough in 7 days one to prevail over an underwhelming passing day. The Chiefs held Deshaun Watson in check out right up until extremely late in 7 days one, so Taylor can keep on your bench this 7 days.
27 Derek Carr, LV vs. NO
28 Teddy Bridgewater, Vehicle @ TB. Although Teddy Two Gloves designed some very good plays in 7 days one versus the Raiders, Tampa Bay’s protection confirmed how ferocious it could be in slowing down Drew Brees. Perhaps you decide up Bridgewater to perform matchups additional down the street, but even in two-QB leagues, we would keep absent from the Buccaneers.
29 Drew Lock, DEN @ PIT
30 Dwayne Haskins, WAS @ ARZ
31 Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA vs. BUF
32 Sam Darnold, NYJ vs. SF
