Fantasy Football Start Sit for Week 2 Late Slate of Games
Just because the 1 p.m. games are underway doesn't mean we're done making fantasy football decisions this week. Players aren't locked into your lineup until their specific game starts, leaving time in the afternoon to make lineup tweaks that could prove to make or break your Week 2 matchup.
Who Should I Start Fantasy Football
Here are four start-sit decisions that could be difference-makers in Week 2.
1. Start: Tyrell Williams, WR, Oakland Raiders
The Oakland Raiders' offense isn't exactly flush with receiving options, and Tyrell Williams firmly established himself as their No. 1 WR with eight targets in a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos in Week 1. In Week 2, he has a much softer matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs and should have no trouble converting big volume into big production again this week.
2. Sit: Mecole Hardman, WR, Kansas City Chiefs
Mecole Hardman is the next man up in the Kansas City Chiefs offense with Tyreek Hill sidelined for a few weeks, but that doesn't necessarily make him a must-start fantasy option. Playing in the league's best offense gives him plenty of upside, but he didn't see a single target, despite playing 53 snaps, in Week 1.
3. Start: Darren Waller, TE, Oakland Raiders
Tied with Williams for the team lead, Darren Waller also saw eight targets in Week 1, catching seven of them for 70 yards. Like Williams, a big workload and much softer matchup makes him a terrific play in Week 2 against the Chiefs, especially in PPR leagues where Waller's volume can help set him apart at the TE position.
4. Sit: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, Chicago Bears
Mitchell Trubisky struggled in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, going 26-of-45 for 228 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. His matchup gets even tougher in Week 2, facing the Denver Broncos, and this game has a paltry 40-point over/under, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. It might be smart to bench anyone on the Bear's offense, if you have other viable late-slate options.
