After what was a fun first week of football, we’re back at it for Round 2. There were some big names who went down with injuries, while others fell down the depth chart further than we thought. Who are the players expected to step-up into their role and should you be starting them? This early look at the Week 2 rankings should give you a good idea.

If you’re like me and want to hear the reasoning behind where a player is ranked, I’ve got you covered. The Primer, which has a paragraph from every player from every game, will be out every Thursday by noon EST. If you missed what that article or have no idea what it will entail, click here for a link to the introduction. Until then, enjoy the snapshot of my Week 2 rankings!
