The top streaming options for your Week 2 fantasy lineup
We’re heading into Week 2, and that unfortunately brings us injuries to fill on our fantasy rosters. It will unfortunately get worse as the weeks go on, but fortunately we will have this piece here for you every week.
If you missed it in Week 1, this is the revival center for your fantasy team. Each week, you’ll be able to find replacements for whatever your injury your team has suffered. Whether it’s a quarterback, running back, wide receiver or tight end, you will find a player who is a good spot-start for that week, and more importantly, available in more than 50 percent of leagues.
Last week’s list included Will Fuller, Tajae Sharpe and Brock Osweiler. Let’s take a look at which guys you should be picking up to start this week in a pinch.
Joe Flacco, Ravens (27 percent owned)
It’s hard to trust Flacco at times. But in Week 2, it doesn’t really get any better than this. The Browns are a team that has given up 25 passing touchdowns over their last 10 games. As a matter of fact, going back to the start of the 2015 season, there have been just four games in which they didn’t allow multiple touchdown passes.
We saw Mike Wallace get loose last week for a long touchdown, and it’s just what we’ve been preaching this offseason — that Wallace landed in the perfect spot for his strengths, the long ball. While there has been much attention on how bad Darrelle Revis has been to start the year, Browns cornerback Joe Haden has been extremely bad over the last year. Adding in what happened in Week 1, Haden has allowed 27 of 37 passes directed his way to be completed, for 447 yards and five touchdowns. He’ll be covering a mix of Wallace and Steve Smith.
