Mike Tagliere’s Week 2 Fantasy Football Rankings

After taking the league by storm in Week 1, Lamar Jackson has another great matchup in Week 2

You’ve likely heard it by now, but stop overreacting to one week of football. I get it, you’re frustrated with Jameis Winston. You’re wondering why you drafted Nick Chubb in the first round when Chris Carson was available. You’re second-guessing everything you’ve done this offseason. Let’s try a little exercise: If you were right on all of your calls in Week 1, and I mean all of them, would you stand still as a fantasy owner, or would you be trying to sell-high on some players that exceeded even your wildest expectations? If you said you’d be willing to sell-high, you’re a winner. Why? Because no one is 100 percent correct in fantasy football. The idea is to be right about 60 percent of the time and take advantage of market fluctuations. You’re not dropping Davante Adams or Devonta Freeman after Week 1. You shouldn’t be giving up on anyone after one week, just the same as you shouldn’t be going all-in on someone after one week.

When looking at the rankings, I fully expect you to have some questions on why your favorite player is ranked too low, or why your least favorite player is ranked too high. That’s where The Primer comes in. That’s the article where I write a paragraph from every fantasy relevant player from every game (yes, even Taylor Gabriel and Hunter Renfrow). Whether it be snap counts, injuries, or cornerback matchups, it’s all covered there. The Primer comes out every Thursday morning, so if you’re wondering why a player is higher or lower than you’d think, the answer will be in there. Here’s my early look at Week 2 rankings.
