Fantasy Football 2017: Divisional sits, starts and sleepers for Week 2
Divisional rivals Tennessee and Jacksonville face-off, and in a surprising – albeit early – twist, it’s the Jaguars atop the AFC South.
Elsewhere, Indy hosts Bruce Arians and his Cardinals in a battle of winless teams, and the Texans visit Cincinnati on Thursday Night Football.
SIT – Wide Receiver, T.Y. Hilton – Indianapolis Colts
The Cardinals lost, but the defense wasn’t the culprit.
Any defense with an ineffective offense is going to wear down, and big plays are the hallmark of a tired defense.
This won’t be the case in Week 2 as the Cardinals will certainly be able to keep their defender’s fresher as their offense stays on the field longer than in Week 1.
Even with Jacoby Brissett likely coming in, Hilton is going to get a lot of attention from the likes of Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu.
START – Running Back, Lamar Miller – Houston Texans
There’s a thought that a rookie quarterback’s best friend is a good tight end. The Texans don’t have one unfortunately.
So, the next best thing might be a good running game. Lamar Miller tallied 65-yards on 17 carries in a loss last week, but this week should be different.
No matter who the quarterback is, the Texans should lean on Miller a bit more this week than they did last.
The Bengals defense allowed a total of 151-yards to the Ravens’ top-two running backs a week ago. I’m sure Miller will find room to run as well.

SLEEPER – Wide Receiver, Corey Davis – Tennessee Titans
With more than a couple receiving threats to cover, the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to have their hands full.
More often than not, it’s the rookies who don’t get the biggest amount of attention.
This was the case in Week 1 when the Titans lost to the Raiders, and Davis turned it in to six catches for 69-yards.
When the same thing happens against the Jags, it should be more of the same and a score for the top-pick in the draft for the Titans.
