Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season is over, and now the tough decisions start to come into play. Is something you saw in the first regular-season game a trend or an anomaly?
As always, we're here to help with those decisions with our weekly lineup advice. Each week, we give you the studs (players with plus matchups due to the defense they're facing or their team situation), duds (players with tougher matchups or who are in muddled roster situations at the moment) and sleepers (a non-star you might consider starting who could be in for a big week).
Here's what we've got for Week 2, and as always, good luck!!
QB Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
The Steelers looked awful last week (366 passing yards allowed) and although the yardage may not be there in a lot of weeks for Wilson, it may in this game.
RB Sony Michel, New England Patriots
He had 15 carries for 14 yards last week. THAT'S LESS THAN A YARD PER CARRY! It's fine, though. He gets to face the abysmal Dolphins and the game script will feature a lot of running out the clock.
WR T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
I whiffed on him last week, and now I'm all in. The Titans allowed Odell Beckham Jr. to catch seven passes for 71 yards, so I'm hopefully Hilton can be even better.
TE Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens
He's probably the No. 1 receiver in Baltimore (sorry, Hollywood Brown!) and should be started every week. He'll face a Colts team who allowed four catches and 60 yards to Hunter Henry.
QB Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals
We saw flashes of that first-overall talent against the Lions, but he was sacked five times and now he gets a trip East to Baltimore. I'm benching him this week for sure.
RB Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers
On this list for a second-straight week even though once again, I have high hopes for the entire season. But the Vikings' D is stifling.
WR Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings
I've got health concerns about his hamstring and the Packers defense looked improved last week. I'm sure Kirk Cousins will throw more than 10 pass attempts in this one, but I'm nervous about Diggs.
TE Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles
I continue to be bearish on Ertz because of all the weapons in Philly, including Dallas Goedert. I'm not saying to bench him, but don't expect a ton against a Falcons team that allowed 6.6 fantasy points per game to tight ends last season.
QB Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
The Giants are a huge mess, and while Allen might throw a few interceptions, he's going to get the ball downfield a bunch and run, too. I'd consider starting him in deep or two-QB leagues.
RB Chris Thompson, Washington Redskins
I have zero faith in Adrian Peterson, who will start in place of the injured Derrius Guice. What I do have faith in is the Skins trailing against the Cowboys' powerful offense and Thompson needing to catch a whole bunch of passes.
WR Tyrell Williams, Oakland Raiders
A shootout could be coming against the Chiefs, which means you'll want to start the Raiders' No. 1 target.
TE Vernon Davis, Washington Redskins
This is going extremely deep, but did you see what he did last week? And the Cowboys just allowed a big day to Evan Engram. Hmmm.
Vernon Davis leaps over a tackle and breaks through another, turning a simple underneath pass into a 48-yard TD #Redskinspic.twitter.com/GgGIApa0EQ
