Fantasy Corner

QBs to Add

Carson Palmer, QB (ARI): Palmer showed off his abilities while healthy a year ago, and he is definitely starter-material when he is playing. He threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns with no turnovers against New Orleans in week one, and should be on your roster until injury hits.

Nick Foles, QB (STL): Seattle didn’t allow more than 30 points in 2014, but Nick Foles managed to score 34 against them in week one. Often going undrafted, Foles is worth a look after tossing a touchdown and totaling 297 yards through the air with his new offensive unit.

RBs to Add

David Johnson, RB (ARI): With Andre Ellington injured for the time being, Johnson is worth an add. He will split time with Chris Johnson, but if CJ2K doesn’t perform, which has been the recent trend for him, the young back Johnson could be in line for some extended work.

Darren Sproles, RB (PHI): Nobody knew what the backfield would look like in Philadelphia, but Sproles came out the winner in week one. He totaled 126 yards from scrimmage, compared to just 20 yards from DeMarco Murray. Sproles is certainly worth a roster spot considering how he will be used, especially in PPR leagues.

WRs to Add

Stevie Johnson, WR (SD): Philip Rivers hasn’t had a consistent number one receiver in San Diego in years, but this may be Johnson’s job for the taking. He reeled in six catches for 82 yards and a score in week one against Detroit, and he may be able to keep it up in a receiving core that has no leader.

James Jones, WR (GB): With Jordy Nelson out for the year, Jones jumped right in nicely with his old squad. There was no rust, and Aaron Rodgers looked his way early and often. En route to two impressive touchdown receptions, Jones will be someone to keep an eye on—if he is still in your free agency.

TEs to Add

Jordan Reed, TE (WSH): Washington tight ends have always been fairly successful, it has always just depended on who was the starter during a specific week. Reed looks like he will hold the position for this season, and let’s hope he can repeat his week one performance of 63 yards and a score again.

Eric Ebron, TE (DET): The second-year tight end may finally be breaking out with an air-it-out offense in Detroit. Matt Stafford will be looking his way often, and he is still available in over 80 percent of fantasy leagues. The youngster may be inconsistent, but he will have some strong weeks in between.
