It appears the Shane Waldron offense is going to suit Russell Wilson just fine. And this is a rare week where Patrick Mahomes ISN’T the overall QB1 option. Do you agree or disagree? And does it even matter? If there’s a league where you have Mahomes and Kyler Murray at your disposal and can only start one of them, you did something wrong in your draft...
Anyway, as always, haggle away in the comments if you see someone I’m too high or low on. Help me win some money, peoples...
QB Rankings for Week 2
|He's got a shot to be the top option after last week's explosion (289 PaYd, 4 TDs). MIN allowed a pair of scores to Joe Burrow last week.
|Still an elite option.
|Only managed one passing score and lost two fumbles last week, but should need to air it out plenty to keep up with KC.
|This is a great matchup, a defense that Kyler Murray torched for four passing scores in Week 1. Wilson tossed 4 scores in Week 1 vs. IND
|He isn't out of the circle of trust, but another poor start is going to raise eyebrows. Right now I'm tipping my cap to PIT and trusting Allen as a top five option for Week 2.
|The only reason he won't go bonkers is if TB is comfortably winning early. Brady shredded ATL twice last year, and the Falcons just got beaten soundly by Philly.
|Last week's stats look pretty darn healthy. He's in the circle of trust.
|After a tough defense in Week 1, he moves back up the ranks given the shootout potential with DAL.
|Expect A-Rod to rebound after a poor Week 1 showing.
|He's a legitimate top-12 guy all year, Week 1 just confirmed it.
|He decimated ATL last week, but this is a rough matchup. Best viewed as a low-end QB1.
|Maybe TEN is still figuring things out with a new OC and some new offensive personnel.
|He's a high-upside QB2 play against this defense.
|The Bears look beatable in the secondary, but can he take advantage? He wasn't asked to throw much in the 4Q last week and looked to be experiencing some shoulder pain.
|After 5 scores last week, he's at least earned some leash as a sturdy QB2 with upside.
|Chandler Jones was after Tannehill (a much better runner than Kirk) all day in Week 1. Tread lightly.
|He had a good matchup against HOU last week, but against DEN you have to downgrade him.
|It was a good start against the Jets last week, but NO is a different animal.
|In the circle of trust as a QB2 given the cheese matchup. Sutton and Fant are enough to play with even while Jeudy is out.
|Philly held ATL to six points in Week 1, but San Fran is a different animal...
|PIT put the clamps on Josh Allen last week...
|He's a heavy fade this week after an awful performance vs. Philly.
|It's an easier matchup and his first NFL start is behind him. Arrow pointing upward.
|The good news is he looked healthy, the bad news is he was hit a lot by Seattle--and the Rams defense is better.
|He can run the ball...that's at least worth QB2 consideration.
|Another tough matchup. Tua will make his way into the QB2 convo this year, but not for this week.
|He looked solid in his debut, but CAR was chasing after him all day. NE is a tough matchup.
|This is a really tough matchup.
|He's a boring, low floor option at this juncture given that he's no longer pushing the ball down the field.
|This should be a tougher test than JAC last week.
|He went nuts in garbage time last week against San Fran.
|He struggled predicably against LAR last week.
