We made it, we are finally here- entering Week 2 of the 2021 season, and continuing our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. I’m hoping that you got the wins to kick off your new season, and weren’t hurt by a combination of Aaron Rodgers/ Matt Ryan/ Brandon Aiyuk who all really struggled in the opening week.
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Ryan Tannehill @SEA
This week, I’ve had a few questions about Tannehill and if he is worth owning still. The answer is yes. Sure, he struggled in the opening week against the Cardinals, but that pass rush massively disrupted them. Carson Wentz found holes in the Seattle defense last week, Tannehill should find the same.
Baker Mayfield v HOU
Cleveland looked like they might have taken a victory from the Chiefs. That would have been a huge scalp, but they fell short. This week they will be firing to get their season off with a win. Whether Mayfield does that, or they do it through the air is unknown, but in deeper leagues he is worth a start.
Teddy Bridgewater @JAX
Bridgewater looked good last week, certainly a very capable streaming option. This defense struggled against the Texans last week, an offense that many thought would struggle. Even with Jerry Jeudy on IR, the team should manage to be effective.
Jared Goff @GB
Jared Goff had a decent outing last week. Garbage time is a great thing isn’t it? This week you might expect the same, but that’s a tough thing to gamble your week on. I’m instead expecting the Packers to be making statements both sides of the ball at home.
Jameis Winston @CAR
Winston performed well against the Packers last week. But that was equally down to the fact that the Packers defense never really got a foothold in the game. The Panthers may have struggled to keep Zach Wilson from carving up their secondary, but they did manage to bring pressure to the pocket. Two solid weeks from Winston and I’m in on him (I think).
