Week 2 Fantasy Busts: Jameis Winston, Mark Ingram Go From Hot Waiver Pickups To Potential Arrests

Fantasy Football is back, and last week we got our first taste of the disappointments of Fantasy Football. It was great to see if you were up against one, but doesn’t it seem like your players are the only ones who didn’t show up? Anyway, these weeks of downs will occur regularly. so we have to try to identify the fantasy busts from Week 2 before they happen. Of course, some come out of nowhere, but we can take factors like matchups, injuries, and previous game inefficiency to identify potential candidates and inform their start-and-sit decisions.

Damien Harris against a horrible Jets team? One of the most popular waiver cables of Week 2, Mark Ingram? Mr. five touchdowns himself, Jameis Winston? You can bet it, and we have good reason to care about all of them.

Last week, we nailed the receiving group of Kenny Golladay, Marquez Callaway and Courtland Sutton as busts, but we were obviously sleeping on Jameis Winston and the Saints defense. (We blame the Packers). Our headliners were Darrell Henderson and D’Andre Swift (oops), so obviously we had our fair share of mistakes. However, we learned a valuable lesson in the future: don’t listen to Dan Campbell.

We won’t bore anyone with obvious candidates to sit down, but we will present one case at a time with reasonable cause for each selection. Note that you shouldn’t seat these players if you don’t have better options (or just don’t want to – it’s your team after all), but at least prepare for potentially lower scores than usual.

Fantastic busts of week 2: runners

Damien Harris, Patriots @ Jets (Jackson Sparks). The showdown with the Jets looks wildly juicy, and this pick might seem silly after Sunday, but we can’t ignore Harris’s late-game fumble that sealed the Dolphins’ win over the Patriots in Week 1. This is it. Bill Belichick. speaking of here. Would it be really shocking if he punished Harris for at least a week? They shouldn’t need it to manage the Jets, so this feels like a classic “fading a Pats RB” week. This scenario also makes James White and JJ Taylor sleeping candidates, as Rhamondre Stevenson also fumbled on his first NFL carry and didn’t see another for the remainder of the game.

Mark Ingram, Texans (Vinnie Iyer). Everything went smoothly for Ingram to have a heavy workload against the Jaguars, including the game script and the showdown. Throw all that out the window at the Browns.

Josh Jacobs, Raiders @ Steelers (Matt Lutovsky). Jacobs scored twice last week, but he didn’t look good otherwise. Sure, Baltimore is a tough defense, but Pittsburgh is even tougher. Jacobs doesn’t think he’s much better after a short week’s cross-country trip, so there’s no need to take a chance on him.

Fantasy Football busts from week 2: quarterbacks

Matthew Stafford, Rams @ Colts (Sparks). You shouldn’t bench Stafford in every league, but he’s quietly a cheeky candidate in Week 2. The Colts’ defense was torched by Russell Wilson, but that feels like an unusual week from what a defense generally is. stallion. Although the Rams are talented, Seattle possesses arguably a higher level skill set. If Stafford shoots up in Indianapolis, we will evaluate Indy’s defense going forward. For now, we still see them as a top-tier defense, much better than what the Rams faced in Week 1 (Bears).

Jameis Winston, Santos in Panthers (Iyer). Winston didn’t throw much and still had five TDs last week, but don’t chase that scoring chart thinking you’re like Drew Brees. This game will be more of a running back duel between Alvin Kamara and Christian McCaffrey than a passing party.

Ryan Tannehill, Titans at Seahawks (Lutovsky). Tannehill always seems to find his way to at least two TDs like he did last week, but the Titans’ offense seemed completely out of sync against Arizona. They couldn’t block and there was no rhythm between Tannehill and his receivers. Perhaps most worryingly, Seattle’s pass defense against the Colts looked much better than it did last year. With Seattle back home to the “twelfth man,” Tennessee could be stepping into another circular saw.

Fantasy Football busts from week 2: wide receivers

Corey Davis, Jets vs. Patriots (Sparks). In Week 1 (@ Carolina), Davis’s (5-97-2) stat line looked pretty at the end of the day. However, these were late-game touchdowns, one of which can be labeled garbage time. Bill Belichick has been known to make a rookie quarterback’s life hell, so we can assume that Zach Wilson will be ineffective. Yes, Stephon Gillmore (quad) is out, but JC Jackson and Devin McCourty still exist, and Wilson will be under pressure all day with left tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) out for the game.

Juilo Jones, Titans at Seahawks (Iyer). Jones didn’t really fit in with the offense in his first game, and it’s hard to see the chemistry between him and struggling Tannehill suddenly speeding up against red-hot Seattle on the road.

Odell Beckham Jr., Browns vs. Texans (Lutovsky). OJB was a surprise scratch last week due to knee pain. It’s quite possible that Cleveland will keep him out again this week in a game where he’s one of the monster favorites. However, if OBJ plays, it could be in moderation. He will have to score early to produce because there is a good chance he will not play late when the game is out of control. Yes, the showdown is favorable, but it’s fair to wonder if OBJ will get the volume it needs in Cleveland’s running attack.

Fantasy Football busts from week 2: tight ends

Tyler Higbee, Rams @ Colts (Sparks). Higbee looked great with his new best friend, Matthew Stafford, and was second on the team with six goals. However, Seattle TE Gerald Everett only received two targets for 20 yards, although he did score a touchdown. Touchdowns are difficult to project from week to week, so we can’t count on that. What we do know is that Everett was generally not a big factor, and perennial All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard will be assigned Higbee’s coverage for much of the game.

Mike Gesicki, Dolphins vs. Bills (Iyer). This is more of a reminder that he is no longer a starting tight end and is on the verge of being eliminated in this new offense.

Juwan Johnson, Santos @ Panthers (Lutovsky). Johnson was a fantasy favorite last week with two scores, so many owners might consider him this week. Note that he only played 12 snapshots and had three goals. Teammate TE Adam Trautman had six goals. It’s hard to know much about the Saints’ offense after their big win, but Johnson isn’t sure of future opportunities.

Fantastic busts of week 2: defenses

Carolina Panthers vs Saints (sparks). The Panthers defense looked solid in Week 1, but then you remember he was playing the Jets. Meanwhile, the Saints’ offense looked efficient, putting up 38 points on the board against Green Bay. This should really put the Panthers’ defense to the test, so we’ll see how they look forward to progress, but we can’t count on a solid performance in Week 2.

San Francisco 49ers at Eagles (Iyer). Secondary issues are worrisome when facing a red-hot offense on the road.

Miami Dolphins vs. Bills (Lutovsky). We like the Dolphins for the season, but not this week. They didn’t do much against rookie quarterback Mac Jones in Game 1, and we can’t believe the Bills’ powerful offense is in trouble again. Miami is good, but they are not exactly Pittsburgh. Give the Dolphins another week before you shoot them.
