The Browns face their second-straight divisional rival with a road trip to Baltimore.
Pittsburgh is hosting the Vikings, and the Bengals host Houston on Thursday Night Football.
SIT – Bengals Running Backs
Now, they draw the Houston Texans, and it isn’t going to get easier even though linebacker Brian Cushing has been suspended for 10-games.
I like Mixon the most out of the bunch, but the entire offense looks uncoordinated. With a short week coming into this one, I don’t see it getting much better.
Outside of a huge play, this trio is handcuff hell at the moment.
START – Wide Receiver, Antonio Brown – Pittsburgh Steelers
Before you cuss me out and accuse me of going after an obvious choice here, bear with me. We all know the fantasy football player who overthinks match-ups and benches a star. It happens.
This serves as their notice. Start Antonio Brown every week, even against the Vikings.
Sure, they force the Saints to use a running back and a tight end as their top receiving targets in Week 1. This is Antonio Brown though.
SLEEPER – Quarterback, Deshone Kizer – Cleveland Browns
Kizer finished Week 1 as fantasy football’s ninth ranked quarterback. Not bad for a rookie, or a Browns quarterback.
I see the Steelers defense as a stiffer one than Baltimore’s, and even though this one is on the road for Kizer, he should be able to put together some solid stats.
Or, this could be his implosion game. Rookies are good for one of those per year it seems.
If you invest in him in DFS, it’s a big payoff or bust. If you stream him (I’m talking to you Dalton owners), you’ll probably get enough points to give you a shot to win this week.
