Primetime DFS Slate Breakdown: Week 2
As if things couldn't get any worse for the Jets after blowing a big lead to the Bills last week, they lose their starting QB Sam Darnold to mono for a few weeks. That turned what could have been a competitive Monday Night Football game to a likely blowout for the visiting Cleveland Browns (but it is the Browns, so anything is possible). The other game on the slate, however, should be a source of entertainment both in terms of competitiveness and fantasy points scored as the Eagles visit the Falcons.
Let's break down the games and how we can find the edge that might get us at the top of the leaderboards.
- Russell Gage, ATL, WR - Questionable
- Rashard Higgins, CLE, WR - Questionable
- Sam Darnold, NYJ, QB - OUT
- Quincy Enunwa, NYJ, WR - OUT
- Braxton Berrios, NYJ, WR - Questionable
- Demaryius Thomas, NYJ, WR - Questionable
- Le'Veon Bell, NYJ, RB - Questionable
The Jets have been grounded with their starting QB out with mono for at least a few weeks which means Trevor Siemian will get the start. That's not a good thing. Quincy Enunwa is also out for the season meaning more targets for Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder (not sure that's possible). Everyone else is on track to play including Le'Veon Bell who gave fantasy owners a brief scare when he went in for an MRI earlier this week..
