Fantasy football rankings: Quarterbacks in Week 2

Who’s up? Who’s down?

After a solid week 1 one of the NFL season, I can only hope that the next few months offer us the same level of excitement. Week 1 taught us that we know a little bit, but really we know nothing. However, I am still confident to give you my updated QB rankings for week 2!

Derek Carr looked good last week against a solid Tennessee defense. His numbers could have been better if not for a few end zone drops by Amari Cooper. I like his matchup a lot this week. Alex Smith definitely has to be up a few spots this week. He completely dominated the 2016 top scoring defense with his new weapon, Kareem Hunt.

Tom Brady fell a couple spots as he started to look his age on a couple throws Thursday night. He is still Tom Brady, so I won’t be taking him out of the top 3 yet! Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense looked horrible against what should be a “swiss cheese” defense in Green Bay. Wilson is the biggest faller of the week.

Good luck to all this week! Stay tuned for updated week 3 rankings.
