Week 2 Fantasy Soccer Operating Again Rankings

Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season was a superb one for a lot of high operating backs. Josh Jacobs had three TDs, and Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott, Alvin Kamara, Chris Carson, Dalvin Cook dinner, and even Nyheim Hines and Malcolm Brown received into the motion for 2 every. Fantasy homeowners of those backs needed to be proud of what they noticed, however will it carry over into the subsequent sport? Or will new sleepers, waiver wire pickups, and damage replacements emerge? That is what we now have to decipher when placing collectively our Week 2 fantasy RB rankings.

Accidents, per typical, are having an influence on these rankings. Marlon Mack is essentially the most notable title who’s more likely to miss time after struggling an obvious season-ending Achilles’ damage. With Mack out, Jonathan Taylor will possible be the Colts’ lead-back, so he is a must-play upside in opposition to a Vikings protection that simply received torn aside by the Packers. Moreover, the aforementioned Hines is on the rise as a result of Philip Rivers appears to love throwing to him in an Austin Ekeler-type capability. That may make him a superb flex in normal and a possible RB2 in PPR leagues.

WEEK 2 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Broad receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

There are another accidents that would have an effect right here. Le’Veon Bell’s hamstring would be the one to observe this week, together with the hamstring of Miles Sanders. If Sanders cannot go, the well being of Boston Scott, who left Sunday’s sport with an damage of his personal, shall be essential. If each Sanders and Scott are out, Corey Clement might be the lead again for the Eagles in opposition to the Rams.

Regardless of these accidents, many of the league’s greatest backs made it by Week 1 unscathed and stay towards the highest of this week’s rankings. Some are elevated in higher matchups than typical, together with Derrick Henry (vs. Jaguars) and Aaron Jones (vs. Lions). When you’ve got a stud on the RB place, do not get cute and sit them even in a nasty matchup. The place is just too skinny to try this.

Proper now, it is too early to advocate fading any RB2s in poor matchups. It is solely Week 2, and there aren’t a ton of men that you could depend on to be higher than the top-25 backs. Simply roll with the very best gamers and preserve them in your lineup till there is a bigger pattern measurement from which to make knowledgeable lineup selections.

Reminder: As at all times, we anticipate to make loads of modifications to those RB rankings all through the week, so examine again for updates.
