Fantasy Football Start, Sit and Forget These Quarterbacks Week 2
Week 2 is already here, so here is a little insight into which quarterbacks should be starting or sitting or we should just be forgetting.
Start These Quarterbacks
Ben Roethlisberger – The Ravens allowed the eighth most fantasy points to Andy Dalton last week. Week 2 should be kind to Big Ben.
Jake Locker – The Tennessee Titans have a fabulous matchup against the Dallas’ horrendously bad defense that let Colin Kaepernick waltz all over them last week.

Andrew Luck – Philly’s defense allowed Chad Henne to go to town last week with a couple of passing touchdowns; Luck is obviously way better.
Alex Smith – Could have a better outing against the Broncos who allowed Andrew Luck to pass 370 yards on them last week.
Tom Brady – One of these days, he should hopefully re-earn his no-brainer start status, however, he’s got a juicy matchup against the Vikings in Week 2.
Andy Dalton – The Cincinnati Bengals could have a shootout against the Atlanta Falcons just like they did with New Orleans in Week 1.
Colin Kaepernick – start with caution as the Bears only allowed 173 passing yards for E.J. Manuel last week. Kaepernick should fare better, however than an inconsistent Manuel.
Sit These Quarterbacks
Cam Newton – If he plays this week, he faces Detroit who only allowed 163 yards to Eli Manning last week. Albeit Manning is horrible, Newton could struggle coming back from his broken ribs.
Philip Rivers – You saw what torture the Seahawks dealt to Aaron Rodgers last week. Let Rivers sit in Seattle.
Robert Griffin III – The Jaguars sacked Nick Foles five time in Week 1. Imagine how many quarterback-sacks are in store for RGIII by the Jags’ defense?
Jay Cutler – Beware in San Francisco, as his road performances aren’t always the best and you saw what the 49ers’ imposed on Dallas last week. Cutler can be prone to the turnover bug.
Tony Romo – Needs to earn the trust of his fantasy owners before he gets a start, especially against Tennessee who kept Alex Smith bottled up. Do you have a backup, or better option, like Locker?
"That did not look like the Tony Romo of old yesterday. I think its time to start to worry a lot about Tony and the Cowboys". @15miller

Other recommended sits unless you are in a true bind – Geno Smith, E.J. Manuel, and Josh McCown
Forget These Quarterbacks
Eli Manning – At this point he shouldn’t be on anyone’s roster. You would be better off starting a second kicker.
@NFLfantasy Eli Manning went undrafted in my fantasy league … wasn't even taken in a backup role … UNDRAFTED

Matt Cassel – Teddy Bridgwater could steal some action.
Look for Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Maclin, Jordan Cameron, Teddy B and the venerable Frank Gore to have stellar seasons http://t.co/rDjRhU1sFu

Brian Hoyer – I see a change in the guard at some point.. “Johnny Football” might be back.
Dear Ryan Fitzpatrick, Give Foster the ball. Sincerely, Fantasy owners everywhere P.S. Nice mustache.
