Wayniac Nation put a rough week one behind us and looked better on our starts and sits for week two. Unfortunately for J.D. who is a huge Atlanta Falcons fan, he was dead on about sitting Matt Ryan against a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense. Ryan registered roughly 12 points which is not going to win you many fantasy games in today’s NFL. I was on point in telling you to sit both RGIII and Reggie Bush. Bush tallied 32 total yards while seeing less touches than Joique Bell for the second week in a row. RGIII‘s injury woes continued and it appears he may be a sit for the rest of the season. He tallied three points before leaving Sunday’s bout. I will admit I swung and missed on sitting Antonio Gates, but if you saw a seven catch, 96 yard, three touchdown output from the 34-year old against the league’s best defense, please let me know below and come write for us!
The big news was the rash of fantasy mega-stars who are now out for the foreseeable future due to injury or suspension. Zygi Wilf sure made it sound like Adrian Peterson will never play in a Vikings uniform again. Jamaal Charles suffered the dreaded high-ankle sprain and appears to be sidelined for a at least a month. A.J. Green, DeSean Jackson, Doug Martin, Mark Ingram, Ben Tate, Ryan Mathews and Jordan Cameron highlight a list of players that have been absent already with injury and very little insight on when they will return. And Toby Gerhart straight up stinks.
So with significant fantasy stars already on the pine, who can you turn to this week? Week three is a pivotal point in the fantasy season. If you are 0-2, you need a win. If you are 2-0, a 3-0 start puts you at a huge advantage for a playoff spot. This week, we hope to bring you some help in solidifying your run for the playoffs.
