Week 2: Surviving the Hangover

I hope all you fantasy football fans are off to great 1-0 start.  There is nothing better than a fantasy win and a win for your home team, right Chiefs fans?  I already had my win in the bag going into Monday night so it was great to kick back and watch the Chiefs win their opener.  For those fantasy players that have opened at 0-1, don’t worry you’ll survive the hangover.

My projections for the Kansas City Chiefs last week were, to say the least, awful.  Thankfully I have an excuse in Mother Nature’s horrible weather.  Then again, excuses are like rear-ends, we all have them.  Week two looks like a good week for owners of Chiefs players.  The Browns are just horrible on both sides of the ball.  Dwayne Bowe is a must start, he’ll be much better than his one catch outing from last week.  Continue to start Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones as they will both continue to split carries and should shred the Browns rushing defense.  If you’re thin at receiver then start Dexter McCluster, I see more passes going his way assuming there isn’t a monsoon Sunday afternoon.  Bench Chris Chambers unless you are extremely thin at receiver.  I have a feeling Matt Cassel will be checking down to McCluster and Tony Moeaki than looking for Chambers.  Bench Cassel until he shows he is a more competent passer.  This would be a great week to pick the Chiefs Special Teams/Defense of waivers and start them.  Not only could they prevent the Browns from scoring a ton of points, but I see another special teams touchdown in week two.  Ryan Succop is a decent option at kicker this week as well.  My sleeper Chief is Tony Moeaki; he may not produce Antonio Gates like numbers, but could see another redzone touchdown.

Week two projections for your 1st place Kansas City Chiefs:

Matt Cassel: 160 yards, 2 TDs

Jamaal Charles: 80 yards, 1 TD, 2 catches 20 yards

Chris Chambers: 3 catches 35 yards

Dexter McCluster: 3 catches 40 yards

Tony Moeaki: 2 catches 15 yards, 1 TD

Special Teams/Defense: 3 sacks, 1 INT, 17 points allowed

  • Predicting a DST touchdown… That's ballsy!!!

    Question: I drafted Joe Flacco in both of my fantasy leagues thinking he will be a stud… He was disappointing on Monday night, to say the least…

    Luckily, he is my #2 in both of these leagues as well. One league I have Favre, the other I have Schaub. I feel my drafts were very strong in both of these leagues, so strong in fact that I didn't even make a play to obtain Brandon Jackson…

    So my question, will Flacco be a productive fantasy player in 2010, and how long should I hold onto him if he doesn't produce in week 2?

  • TP… I never thought Flacco was going to be a stud, there has never been a stud QB in BAL since their existance. Boldin does help his development, but he may never be a true fantasy stud. I think he will be a productive fantasy QB, maybe not right away but by seasons end he will be better than other taken higher than him. If you have Farve then hold onto Flacco. If you have Schaub then make a deal after Schaubs bye week. Week 2 may not be the week to judge his season on.

  • @ChiefsCommand You do know I need talent on the other end of my throws to equal your projected 2TD’s right? #CasselCannon

  • @ChiefsCommand Chambers v McCluster. Ouch, but I think Chambers is the choice but both are weak. #fantasyadvice #fantasyfootball
