Week 2 wasn’t TBD TBD’s best week. The team totaled 39 points and received underwhelming performances from fantasy stalwarts Andrew Luck, Marshawn Lynch and Adam Vinatieri. Randle Cobb was the only starter to make something happen points wise. In more troubling news, Zach Ertz and Andre Johnson continue to struggle. The only bench player who could’ve done the team any good was Donte Moncrief, who impressed with 18 points thanks to seven catches for 122 yards and a touchdown.
Changes are going to have to be made for the team to start winning games. I’ve already submitted a claims on a few players on waivers.
Add Dion Lewis, NE RB
Drop Owen Daniels, DEN TE
Even with Arian Foster returning from injury soon, I’m a bit short on running backs. The Pats’ offense has looked prolific to start the year and Lewis has been a big part of it. Bill Belichick has a tendency to be fickle with his running back selection, so Lewis may have a down game or two, but he’ll play an integral role as the team’s receiving back out of the backfield.
Daniels hasn’t done much over the first two weeks, hauling in five catches for a combined 24 yards. That’s resulted in a singular fantasy point.
Add Eric Ebron, DET TE
Drop Sam Bradford, PHI QB
Ebron has scored in consecutive weeks while catching four passes for 53 yards in Week One and five balls for 43 yards in Week Two. Ertz has struggled, so Ebron will likely slot into the lineup once he’s claimed on waivers.
Week 3 Lineup
Since I’m dropping Bradford, Luck is my only option at QB. I’m betting he’ll bounce back against Tennessee.
Running back wise, it looks like my gamble on Foster could begin to pay off. Lynch and Randle also provide TBD with potentially three top running back options this week. Should Foster be unable to play this weekend, Randle would take his spot next to Lynch, and the FLEX position immediately becomes open for consideration.
I’m going to start Cobb pretty much every week given his status as Aaron Rodgers’ number one target. John Brown on the other hand, seems to have established himself as the number two receiver in Arizona. That means lots of targets from Carson Palmer.
Ertz is here for now, but Ebron will soon take his spot.
Houston face Tampa Bay in Week three, so there’s some potential there facing a rookie QB (even one names Jameis Winston).
Indy is bound to bounce back offensively, which means more kicking opportunities for Vinatieri.
Do you agree with my lineup changes? What changes would you make?
Your Opinion: Roster Moves?
Should I drop Vinatieri? What about Harvin and Bryant?
Because of TBD’s 0-2 record, I’m at the top of the waiver order, so I have top priority in terms of acquiring a player.
Going on this, Robbie Gould is available. He’s fantasy’s best kicker this season while Vinatieri may be one of the worst (statistically speaking). Should I drop Vinatieri for Gould?
Harvin struggled last week, is he worth a roster spot? What about Bryant? Is it worth keeping him around while he’s suspended, or should I give his spot to a player producing this season like Travis Benjamin, Allen Robinson or Cardinals running back David Johnson?
Should I drop anyone?
Should I add anyone?
