Fantasy football Week 2: Start and sit

Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week.

Here are my best bets for Week 2:



Obvious starters: Joe Mixon (CIN), Nick Chubb (CLE), Odell Beckham Jr. (CLE), Jarvis Landry (CLE).

Who to start: Despite finishing third among Bengals receivers in snaps and routes against the Chargers, A.J. Green (CIN) still received nine targets and has WR2 upside against a banged up Browns secondary. Tyler Boyd (CIN) deserves flex consideration against a pass defense that got torched by the Ravens. Kareem Hunt (CLE) is a premium flex option with upside after producing 81 total yards and four receptions last week.


Who to sit: Top overall pick Joe Burrow (CIN) didn't look terrible in his first start, but we are a ways from counting on him in fantasy. Austin Hooper (CLE) is touchdown-dependent unless his target share increases. It's hard to trust Baker Mayfield (CLE) after how bad he looked against the Ravens.

Sleeper: A legit pass rush against a rookie quarterback on a short week make the Browns D/ST a solid streaming option.
