Entering Week 2, we finally have some data on paper. But as I wrote last Sunday, week 1 often gives us quite a few anomalies, so you can't rely on it too much. Still, it's nice to have some real numbers rather than going off of last year and the preseason.
There are a few themes this week. First, play your Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders. The two teams play each other in a game no one wants to watch, but it should give you a good reason to start guys like Maurice Jones-Drew, Darren McFadden and Cecil Shorts with confidence that you may not have in them every week.
Secondly, while I think we were all impressed with the offensive output of the San Diego Chargers against the Houston Texans in Week 1, any Bolts players are a dangerous choice this week, traveling from the West Coast to the East for a 1 p.m. start against Philadelphia. Did you see how sluggish the Seattle Seahawks were against Carolina?
Here are a few start, sit and sleeper suggestions for Week 2.
