Week 2, Mostly Wrong, Fantasy Football Predictions

1. Seth Roberts goes for 50 yards and a touchdown

I’ve brought up Roberts twice this week so why not one more? My thinking is that Oakland vs. Atlanta has the chance to be a pretty high scoring game, and Desmond Trufant will be busy trying to stop Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Because of that, Roberts should be open more often than not with plenty of targets coming his way.

2. Chris Thompson bust out for 5 catches, 70 total yards and a touchdown

It was clear, following Washingtons’ week one loss that Thompson was the superior running back over Matt Jones. Thompson played 20 more snaps than Jones and even scored his first career rushing touchdown. Thompson’s pass-catching ability is going to keep him on the field more, and maybe we’ll even see him take over primary running duties.

3. Eric Ebron scores another touchdown and will continue to cement himself as a top-five tight end

Week one was a bad week for fantasy tight ends, but not for Eric Ebron. He caught all five of his targets for 46 yards and a touchdown. The Lions lack a true red zone threat outside of Ebron, and he’s in for what could be a Tyler Eifert-esque season.

4. Jameis Winston destroys the Cardinals

I don’t know what I mean by ‘destroys,’ but how about 300 yards and three touchdowns? Winston carved up the Saints in week one, and while the Cardinals pose a much more formidable threat, Winston is the type of quarterback that just somehow finds a way.

5. Stefon Diggs snags seven catches for 130 yards and a touchdown

With Shaun Hill at quarterback, Diggs was somehow able to post a decent fantasy line, but things are going to get much better with Sam Bradford. Side note: I do like Bradford more than most.

Against the Packers, the Vikings are probably going to be playing from behind, unless their defense is as good as most people think, and that should lead to another productive day for Diggs.

6. Don’t bench T.Y. Hilton, he’s going to catch a long touchdown

Plenty of people are a bit down on Hilton because the Colts are taking on the Broncos, but I say otherwise. Hilton was targeted 12 times in week one but only turned that into six catches for 79 yards.

Hilton should be in for another busy day, and if the Colts are struggling to score, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Luck launch a few down the field to ignite the offense.

7. Victor Cruz outperforms Sterling Shepard

When it was all said and done, Cruz and Shepard pretty much finished with the same stat line in week one against Dallas.

My reasoning for preferring Cruz, I think he’ll be a little bit more active down the field versus Shepard in the slot, so I could see more yards and touchdown coming from Cruz.
