DRAFT Week 2 Preview

Brady

The DRAFT week 2 preview is here! Basically in light of our recent partnership with this awesome DFS site I’ll be writing a weekly preview each week highlighting my favorite plays at each position. Now since DRAFT uses a snake draft format without any salary considerations, I’m really just giving you rankings adjusted for the site’s scoring system.

Your starting lineup on DRAFT is QB, RB, RB, WR/TE, WR/TE with varying league sizes. Aside from H2H matchups, 3 and 6 person drafts seem to be the most common so with regard to my rankings I’ll be giving you guys 6 QBs, 12 RBs, 12 WRs and 6 TEs each week.

That said, I’m certainly not married to this format so if you have any suggestions on how to make it better don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments or on twitter (@D_bro1389).

Off we go!

QB

1. Aaron Rodgers

  • Great matchup in a game that shouldn’t be lacking for points.

2. Tom Brady

  • Brady has been terrific indoors over his career and this is a Saints defense that just got shredded by Sammy Sleeves.

3. Matt Ryan

  • The Falcons averaged 38.5 points in two games against Green Bay last year.

4. Russell Wilson

  • Last week was a big disappointment, but this is an ideal spot for a bounce back performance.

5. Drew Brees

  • Brees is nails at home, New England’s defense is a mess and the game script will be in his favor…what more could you ask for?

6. Derek Carr

  • The only concern is this game could be over by halftime.

RB

1. Melvin Gordon

  • We know he’s getting the touches and the efficiency should be better this week.

2. Ezekiel Elliott

  • Tough matchup, but Dallas will need to lean on him heavily.

3. Le’Veon Bell

  • While last week was concerning, this whole offense performs much better at home.

4. LeSean McCoy

  • Has perhaps the highest floor on any RB on this slate.

5. Devonta Freeman

  • Game flow should lead to far more opportunities this week.

6. Kareem Hunt

  • Let’s see what the rookie can do for an encore.

7. Jay Ajayi

  • Should be the centerpiece of this offense.

8. Ty Montgomery

  • Workload against Seattle was extremely encouraging.

9. Marshawn Lynch

  • Looked better than expected last week and I’m sure Oakland will try to get him into the endzone in his first home game.

10. Todd Gurley

  • Increased involvement in the passing game helps compensate for his poor efficiency on the ground.

11. Leonard Fournette

  • Between the loss of Robinson and a much improved defense, Fournette could be looking at 25-30 touches.

12. Dalvin Cook

  • Took all of one week for the RBBC concerns to disappear.

WR

1. Julio Jones

  • Check his numbers from the last time these teams played.

2. Antonio Brown

  • He just doesn’t have bad games.

3. Mike Evans

  • There’s nobody in Chicago’s secondary who can cover him.

4. Jordy Nelson

  • Like Brown, his floor is incredibly high.

5. Brandin Cooks

  • Revenge game and New England has only 3 healthy receivers.

6. Amari Cooper

  • If last week is any indication, Oakland is making a concerted effort to get him more involved in the red zone.

7. Doug Baldwin

  • Much better at home and Seattle’s run game is a mess.

8. Michael Thomas

  • Lack of big play ability hurts his upside.

9. Odell Beckham Jr.

  • Still don’t know if he’s playing, but worth the risk

10. Larry Fitzgerald

  • With Brown and DJ out, who else can they throw to?

11. Keenan Allen

  • Still a target monster and Miami’s D shouldn’t provide much resistance.

12. Stefon Diggs

  • If the Vikings are chasing points there should be plenty of opportunities here.

TE

1. Rob Gronkowski

  • His price on DK is $6,900 so you know he’s going off.

2. Travis Kelce

  • They’re finding creative ways to get him more touches.

3. Greg Olsen

  • Nobody else in this passing game is reliable.

4. Zach Ertz

  • Injury to Berry makes this a much better matchup.

5. Jimmy Graham

  • Looked terrible last week, but he had 10 catchers for 164 yards and a TD in 2 games against SF last year.

6. Jordan Reed

  • Will create plenty of matchup problems for the Rams.
