Well we are here on a Monday morning and trying to figure out how or why we either won or loss our Fantasy Matchups. I can only imagine how many people are second guessing who they did or didn’t start this morning. So I am here for my 2nd edition of Fantasy Studs for the week. Don’t forget to check out my buddy Matt Bell’s Fantasy DuDs for the week here: http://wp.me/p2MUTr-lN.
Fantasy Studs Week 2
Aaron Rodgers vs. Washington Redskins – 34/42 480 yards & 4 TDs
Rodgers came out throwing darts on Sunday. He tore the Redskins secondary to shreds, throwing 3 touchdowns in the first half. Through 2 games he is 1st in yards (813), 2nd in TDs(7) and is completing nearly 70% of his passes. He is a Fantasy Stud and showed why he was this weekend.
Marshawn Lynch vs. San Francisco 49ers – 28 carries, 98 yards & 2 TDs – 3 catches, 37 yards & a TD
This is why you don’t panick and trade studs after poor performances. Lynch showed out against a tough 49ers D, totalling over 130 yards and finding the endzone 3 touchdowns. Next week on Lynch’s table is the Jacksonville Jaguars, should be a top 5 start next week as well.
Desean Jackson vs. San Diego Chargers – 9 catches 193 yards & a TD
This new Chip Kelly offense is pretty awesome to watch. One of the guys that has benefitted the most from his offense is Desean Jackson. He light up the Chargers secondary and looks like he is on pace for the best season of his career.
Eddie Royal vs. Philadelphia Eagles – 7 catches 90 yards & 3 TDs
Royal is having an unreal start to the season. He caught 7 balls, 3 of them for touchdowns and now has a total of 5 in the 1st two games. He has more touchdowns than Andre Johnson, Dez Bryant & Calvin Johnson combined. Nobody saw this coming from him or this Chargers team. Royal will be a hot waiver wire guy this week and I think he is worth the claim.
Martellus Bennett vs. Minnesota Vikings – 7 catches 76 yards & 2 TDs
One of my preseason favorites has really made me look good the first two games of the season. This week he caught the game winning touchdown with only a few seconds left. Bennett is a true redzone threat and could be a solid week to week tight end start.
Honorable mentions: Phillip Rivers(36/47/419/3), James Starks(20/132/1) & Julio Jones (11/182/1)
