    Week 2: Who To Start & Random Fantasy Conversation

    Week One's thread didn't really get a lot of action. Maybe this week will.

    Iím in four leagues after drafting five... Who are the five or so best flex plays this week? Chances are I have a little bit of everyone you might list.

    I had a stellar week one. A solid 0-3 after Sunday's game and after Hopkins on Monday, 0-4. I hope to turn it around but I have way too much invested in Famous Jameis.

    Rough week for me. In 4 leagues and have Joe Mixon in 3. Couple that with having TJ Hockenson and Terry McLaurin on my bench in all 4 leagues. Wasn’t a strong start.

    I'm pleased so far. Need Gurley and Aaron Jones to step up in Week 2 to make me feel really good.

    I'm really curious to see how Lamar Jackson performs in Week 2. Not for my team, but just in general.

    I drafted Lamar as a backup in one of my leagues, where my starter is Russell Wilson. Russell is my starter and I believe long term, he'll be the better fantasy player. I'm looking to trade Lamar, but in the time being it's really hard to sit him after last week. Thoughts?

    I had 3 receivers that lost reps due to injury (T. Hill, M. Williams, Pettis). I need WR so bad I picked up John Ross. I am planning on keeping him on my bench this week to see if game 1 was a fluke. Thoughts on Ross for fantasy? Is he still a FA in your league?

    I don't think you'll get a ton of return for either QB. I've always struggled trading QBs.

    My wife has both as well. She's going with Lamar Jackson this week.

    Ross was grabbed on Saturday and inserted into a guys lineup. Ballsy move, but it paid of for him.

    I think I'd need another week to see, unless I was desperate.

    I have Tyreke in two leagues. Luckily I'm deep at receiver. But I was able to pick up the next guy up in KC, Mecole Hardman. He's worth stashing on your bench. Ross has to show me more before I start him every week.

    I love RW and he's efficient but it would be hard for me to roll with a QB throwing 20 -25 passes. Lamar is also in a run first offense but if bet on his legs vs an older RW.

    Another monster week. Arizona plays at a very fast pace. This will give Lamar even more chances against a below average D.

    I would be looking to trade Russell and start Lamar every week.

    He was added in all my leagues. I believe he is worth a roster spot.
