Fantasy Corner: Football Edition

Buy Low:

Reggie Bush, RB (DET): Bush underwhelmed with only 32 offensive yards in week two, while fellow running back Joique Bell saw more rushes and targets. Still, the entire offense failed to move down the field, and Bush should perform well when his team isn’t playing from behind the whole time.

Rob Gronkowski, TE (NE): Gronk has eight catches, 72 yards, and one touchdown through two games. Not the big-time red zone threat we’re used to, eh? He really hasn’t been used much as he still recently had surgery, but he will soon be an emphasis for Tom Brady in the red zone for a struggling Patriots offense.

Sell High:
Steve Smith, WR (BAL): I don’t think anybody can argue that Smith is no longer an effective wide receiver, as the 35-year old proved with 30.5 fantasy points through two games. Still, there are a lot of targets in the Baltimore offense, and it would be insane to think that Smith will continue being a top-six receiver.

Marshawn Lynch, RB (SEA): Lynch currently has three offensive touchdowns, and we know how big of a bulldozer he is when he gets room to run. Still, reports say Lynch has had ongoing back concerns this week, and after two seasons of 300-carry usage, you may want to trade him before he breaks.

Start ‘Em:
Kirk Cousins, QB (WSH): Robert Griffin III’s injury paved the way for a 41-point performance for Washington under Cousins in week two. Cousins is worth a claim off the waiver wire and a spot in your starting lineup after a 250-yard, two-touchdown performance, against a Jaguars defense that even made Chad Henne look good.

Colts D/ST: The Colts have allowed 61 points through two games, third-most in the NFL. Yet, they were against the power offenses of Denver and Philadelphia. In week three, the Colts take on Jacksonville, and that should be a good sign for this defense to make a big bounce back performance.
Sit ‘Em:
Tony Romo, QB (DAL): I am not a Romo hater–I actually feel that he is a good quarterback for the Cowboys despite what his performances in the first two weeks may be. Still, with more interceptions than touchdown passes thus far, it may be best to bench him against a stellar Rams defense.

Anquan Boldin, WR (SF): After missing the 100-yard mark by one yard in week one, Boldin caught only two passes for a measly 34 yards. The aging receiver will have competition for targets from Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis, and he probably won’t see the endzone against the 2-0 Arizona Cardinals.
