Wide Receivers


Emmanuel Sanders, QB, Denver Broncos

Sanders is yet another familiar face on our week 2 start, sit, and sleepers list. He was also our must-start in week 1.

With Wes Welker still serving his four games suspension, Sanders becomes fantasy gold.

Last week he was targeted nine times by Broncos QB, Peyton Manning hauling in six of those targets for 77 yards.

While he didn’t find the endzone in week 1, that could likely change in week 2. Start Sanders.


Roddy White, WR, Atlanta Falcons

While many of you may disagree with the idea of benching White in week 2 — you should still do it. White has scored just two touchdowns in 18 road games against the AFC, in his entire career. Also, the 33-year-old went over 100 receiving yards in just four of those games.

While on the subject of Roddy White, he feels his own fantasy football team is the real victim in the Adrian Peterson case.

White wrote on Twitter:

"“I’m probably going to lose my fantasy football matchup this week cause all day can’t play Sunday for disciplining his child Jesus help us.”"

Minutes later, White deleted the tweet and posted an apology.

Sticking with the numbers, I’m benching White.


Brandin Cooks, WR, New Orleans Saints I’m not sure how much of a sleeper Cooks really is entering week 2. The Saints rookie went off in week 1, racking up 95 yards from scrimmage, scoring a touchdown and 15.50 fantasy points vs. the Falcons.

This week the Saints and Cooks take on the Cleveland Browns. Last week the Browns allowed the fifth most fantasy points to receivers. Look for Cooks to have another big game, with Joe Haden busy with Marques Colston all afternoon.   Thank you for checking out our week 2 start, sit, and sleepers list.
