Fantasy Football Week 2 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

Week 1 of the 2023 fantasy season has already come and gone. Now it's time to either get the ball rolling towards a winning streak or doing everything you can to prevent yourself from starting the year 0-2.

Running Back

Start- Rhamondre Stevenson, New England Patriots (vs. Miami): Conversely, the Patriots may also try to play ball control and keep that explosive Dolphins offense off of the field. Last week, Austin Ekeler was able to have a big day against the Miami defense and Stevenson, who can catch as well as pound the football in the running game, could find similar numbers.

Start- David Montgomery, Detroit Lions (vs. Seattle): Jahmyr Gibbs was the shiny new fantasy football toy and he didn't look bad at all in Week 1, but David Montgomery ran the ball with authority for the Lions.

Sit- Miles Sanders, Carolina Panthers (vs. New Orleans): Sanders didn't have a bad game in Week 1 and he touched the ball over 20 times. But he didn't break any huge plays and his longest play of the game, a catch, went for 11 yards. The Saints did a good job of keeping Derrick Henry in check last week and stand a good chance of doing the same to Sanders.

Sit- Brian Robinson, Washington Commanders (at Denver): Robinson was given 19 carries in Week 1. No one else on the Commanders got more than three. They will likely look to ride him again, but the Broncos were able to slow down Josh Jacobs last week and in what could be a low-scoring affair, Robinson probably doesn't get many more than the 59 yards he rushed for against the Cardinals.

Sleeper Alert- Gus Edwards/Justice Hill, Baltimore Ravens (at Cincinnati): You likely spent a decent part of your FAAB getting one of these guys, so you may as well plug them in and see if they can produce.

Bust Alert- Breece Hall, New York Jets (at Dallas): Hall has been hobbled this week after a magnificent Week 1 return from a torn ACL and his availability for this game is still up in the air. Even if he plays, I would temper my expectations big time.
