Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco 49ers

Kaepernick is a familiar face on our week 2 start, sit, and sleepers. We had Kaep as a great week 1 option vs. the Dallas Cowboys and their extra sketchy defense.

The former leader of the Nevada Wolfpack didn’t disappoint. Kaepernick scored over 17 points against America’s team and should pick up right where he left off in week 2.

This week he faces the Chicago Bears, the same Bears that allowed almost 17 to Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel last week.

Like Manuel, Kaep will find success with his legs, and should have his way with Chicago.


Phillip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers

The number one reason we recommend sitting Rivers out in week 2 is obvious — the Seattle Seahawks defense in on the other side of the ball.

The Hawks all but shut down former NFL MVP, Aaron Rodgers in week 1 and will likely do the same to Rivers.

The Chargers signal caller was average last week, throwing for 238 yards with a touchdown and an interception to go with it. The legion of boom could add to Rivers INT column come Sundays game.

There are better options out there, leave Rivers out this week.


Jake Locker, QB, Tennessee Titans

Jake Locker is my quarterback in one of my two fantasy football leagues in week 2 and I’m really excited about it. You should be too if you’re doing the same.

Locker has always been a quality fantasy QB when healthy. This week he faces the same horrendous defense that Kaepernick faced in week 1, the Cowboys.

Not only that, but Locker played well against the Kansas City Chiefs in week 1. The 26-year-old QB threw for 266 yards with two touchdowns and should continue his great start to 2014 at home on Sunday.

If you need a better option than Rivers vs. Seattle or Jay Cutler vs. the 49ers in week 2, look no further than Locker.
