New, 10 comments

Whether you started 1-0 or 0-1, it's time to put that bizarre week 1 behind us and get ready for whatever the NFL will bring us this week. Brad Duffendack (@Duff_Football) lays out the quarterback rankings for week 2 to get you started on building your roster for the upcoming week.

I'm sure everyone decided to swear off fantasy football at least once during this bizarre week 1. The NFL is full of surprises - like coaches that don't involve their stars in the game plan, touchdown vultureing fullbacks, shutdown corners, and the dreaded injury bug - that haunt fantasy owners throughout every single week. But this isn't the time to panic. Just like with real NFL teams, winning or losing in week 1 does not seal your playoff fate. Let's take what we learned from week 1, apply it accordingly, and make the necessary adjustments to prepare for the upcoming week.
