Kyle Yates

 Goff was on fire last week against the Eagles defense and put together a nice performance. This is another tough matchup for Goff, but he did enough last week to warrant mid-range QB2 consideration. He can be avoided in 1QB leagues, but is a solid start in 2QB formats.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite his monstrous performance in Week 1, Rodgers currently sits as the No. 7 quarterback on the season. He's not running the ball at all, which is turning him into a "must throw three touchdowns to finish top-10" type of quarterback. His pass catchers are still a question mark and we now must make sure that Davante Adams is going to play after suffering a hamstring injury during their Week 2 win. The Saints are going to present a tougher matchup, despite what they looked like on Monday night. It seems the Saints have those games from time to time, but they just didn't have an answer for Darren Waller. Since Week 3 of last year, the Saints have played 15 regular season games. In those 15 games, just two quarterbacks have averaged more than 7.56 yards per attempt. That's why just three quarterbacks have thrown for 300 yards against them in that time, with two of those quarterbacks needing 50 pass attempts to get there. You should certainly feel better about Rodgers if Adams is out there, but I'm afraid he lacks enough weapons against this talented defense. He's just a middling QB2 this week.He's benefited from his receivers after the catch, as they lead the league with 10.1 yards after the catch. Goff's average depth of throw is an NFL-low 4.0 yards down the field. That has dropped his sack rate down to just 6.1 percent, as Sean McVay clearly wants to get the ball out quickly. The Bills haven't gotten as much pressure early in the year, as they've produced a sack on just 6.8 percent of dropbacks, which is a slight step back from last year, but it's even worse when you consider they played against the Jets and Dolphins offensive lines, which are both brand-new units. Goff has been pressured on just 28.1 percent of his dropbacks, which is much better than the 36.0 percent he was last year. We can't pretend this is a good matchup, though, as the Bills have allowed just 6.24 yards per attempt since the start of last year. Going through those 18 games, there have been just four quarterbacks who've thrown more than one touchdown pass, and just three quarterbacks who've thrown for more than 282 yards. Goff snuck away with a decent game last week, but I'm not betting on him finishing as a top-18 option in Week 3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Rodgers has 604 yards passing, 6 TD passes, and no picks through two games. He should be a great QB1 on the road against a Saints D that looked out of sorts in Las Vegas on MNF.The Bills are 10th against fantasy quarterbacks and the Rams have committed to the running game in 2020. Goff is a low upside QB2 on the road in a tough matchup.
