Each week, Ill write about the sport I love: college basketball:Baylor was picked fifth in the Big 12 preseason poll. The Bears have already beaten three teams that were ranked in the top 10 when they played: Oregon, Louisville and Xavier. Coach Scott Drews team doesnt look like a fifth place team in the Big 12 now.Several streaks ended last week. Kentuckys 42-game home win streak was snapped by UCLA. Virginias 24-game home win streak ended when West Virginia won in Charlottesville. Iowa States 37-game home nonconference winning streak was ended by Cincinnati.Arizona coach Sean Miller has endured some tough times. Forward Ray Smith saw his career come to an end due to a torn ACL.?Allonzo Trier?has been held off the court for undisclosed reasons. Now guard?Parker Jackson-Cartwright?is out with a high ankle sprain.Connecticut diaper dandy guard Alterique Gilbert needed shoulder surgery and is done for the season. The Huskies previously lost VCU transfer Terry Larrier for the season with a torn ACL. Kevin Ollies team got off to a rough start with losses to Wagner and Northeastern, and things arent getting easier.Injury news keeps on coming as the Big Ten suffered a pair of losses. Miles Bridges of Michigan State and Indianas?OG Anunoby?are also sidelined.Marques Bolden and Jayson Tatum, Duke diaper dandies, made their season debuts against Maine. That spells trouble for their opponents as this team just got a lot deeper. Sam Koch Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Eric Weddle Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. Youth Ravens Jerseys . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. Brandon Williams Jersey .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win.

After an exciting Week 1, youve got tough calls to make; lets get started on answering your fantasy football questions for Week 2.Rawls or ware? #startsitESPN- noel anderson (@wieitot) September 18, 2016Kansas Citys offense led the league last week in my good blocking rate (GBR) metric that measures how often an offense gives its ball carriers quality run blocking. Ware is healthy and should get the lions share of the carries again this week, so he gets the start over Rawls, who may end up splitting carries with Michael. -- KC JoynerPlease convince me to start Bortles over Luck this week #StartSitESPN- Seth T (@sht75) September 18, 2016You got it. There are many reasons to think the Jaguars have playoff potential and their vertical passing game (production on aerials thrown 11 or more yards downfield) is chief among them. Bortles threw 14 vertical passes last week, which is a very high single game number, and should throw just as many this week vs. a so-so Chargers secondary. Lucks road game at Denver is arguably the toughest matchup any quarterback has this week. Add that to the Colts not having the ability to deal well with a power defense and it ranks Bortles over Luck. -- KC@ESPNFantasy Sterling Shepherd or TJ Yeldon at the flex position? PPR format #StartSitESPN- Matt H (@mholtz81) September 18, 2016Yeldon will get a bell cow workload since Chris Ivory has been ruled out of this contest due to illness. As well as Shepard played last week and as favorable as his matchup is vs. a terrible Saints secondary, hes still an alternate receiver in that offense. Workload wins out over upside, so start Yeldon. -- KC#StartSitESPN Stafford or Manning?- Tony Sultini (@Tsult25) September 18, 2016Manning arguably has the most favorable matchup of the week against an abysmal Saints pass defense that is now missing its best cornerback (Delvin Breaux). Eli should end throwing the ball as often as Stafford, so volume wont be an issue. That makes Manning the hands down winner here. -- KC@ESPNFantasy start or sit Todd Gurley #StartSitESPN- The Dude (@mmoore1620) September 18, 2016For all of their issues on offense last week, Los Angeles still ranked eighth in the league in my good blocking rate metric that measures how often an offense gives its ball carriers quality blocking. Gurley doesnt need good blocking very often to break off a long touchdown run, so he has to be put in the lineup this week. -- KC@ESPNFantasy #StartSitESPN Moncrief or Shepard WR2 PPR? Thanks- Donna Cromeans (@DJRiter) September 18, 2016It is really difficult to trust Moncrief in that tough matchup at Denver. Shepard is likely to hit a big play against the aforementioned terrible Saints secondary, so he should get the start. -- KC@ESPNFantasy cooks or dez standard league #StartSitESPN- Ramon Quiroz (@TheRealRayRay27) September 18, 2016Bryant saw only five targets last week, but four of those were of the stretch vertical variety (meaning they traveled 20 or more yards downfield). That gives Bryant upside potential against Washington, but Cooks is playing in what might be the highest scoring game of the week. The suggestion is to go with Cooks in this one. -- KCcam newton or eli manning? #StartSitESPN #RosterAdvisorESPN #StartSitESPN- Nick Dumitriu (@nick_dumitriu) September 18, 2016San Franciscos defense ranked 25th last week in my good blocking rate metric, meaning they allowed the opposing offense to give ball carriers quality run blocking quite often. That means Carolina will be able to lean on the ground game early and often. The Panthers likely dont want Newton to be rushing the ball any more than absolutely necessary after the hits he took in Week 1. Add those factors to Manning having arguably the most favorable matchup of the week and it puts Eli in the lineup over Cam. -- KC@espnfantasy Flex PPR - Jeremy Hill or Tyler Lockett?? #StartSitESPN- Brian Flores (@B_Flo23) September 18, 2016Hill is facing a Pittsburgh rush defense that had the third-best mark in good blocking rate allowed in Week 1. This metric measures how often a defense allows the offense to give its ball carriers quality run blocking, so Hill may be hard pressed to break off long gains. Having noted this, Seattles rush defense ranked 28th in that category last week. That means the Seahawks can go to their ground game as often as they like, something that doesnt bode well for Locketts target volume. I would go with Hill because of that limitation. -- KC@ESPNFantasy #StartSitESPN Ravens D or Pats D- Pj (@SuperJParty) September 18, 2016Its always good to add a defense/special teams quandary to the mix. The Ravens will likely have the turnover edge due to facing Josh McCown, a quarterback with a long history of posting subpar numbers in my bad decision rate metric that measures how often a quarterback makes a mental error that leads to a turnover opportunity for the opposing team. That kind of upside is difficult to ignore, so go with McCown. -- KCTodd Gurley or Isaiah Crowell? #StartSitESPN- Emily Mallis (@emmallis) September 18, 2016Nothing illustrates how the fantasy world has lost faith in Gurley more than this question. As bad as he played last week, Gurley has more home run potential in one quarter of his game than Crowell will post in an entire game. As noted earlier, the Rams offense placed eighth in the league last week in my good blocking rate metric. All of these factors combine to give Gurley the start edge this week. -- KCFlex Spot: Golden Tate or TJ Yeldon #StartSitESPN- Aaron Martinez (@A_Mar620) September 18, 2016Tate was expected to be utilized more often on downfield throws this year, but in Week 1 all seven of his targets were of the short pass variety (meaning they were thrown 10 or fewer yards downfield). Yeldon will get the bell cow workload since Ivory will miss this game due to illness, so he deserves the start this week. -- KCWill fuller or Emmanuel Sanders #FantasyFootball #StartSitESPN- D??? (@DC_Chillin) September 18, 2016Fuller outgained DeAndre Hopkins last week in targets, receiving yards and fantasy points. Fuller also looked like a veteran wideout on tape. Sanders has a very favorable matchup against a banged up Colts secondary, but the Broncos are going to lean on the power rushing game since the Colts rush defense is nearly as bad as their pass defense. The suggestion would be to play for the upside and start Fuller. -- KCJ. Stewart or D. Freeman? 1/2 PPR #StartSitESPN- Buck Williams BowTie (@BWilliamsBowTie) September 18, 2016Freeman owners should be very worried about last week, as Tevin Coleman had nearly as many offensive snaps as Freeman (36 for Freeman, 32 for Coleman) and nearly as many touches (15 for Freeman, 13 for Coleman). Stewart is facing a San Francisco defense that ranked 25th in my good blocking rate metric (which means they allowed good blocking for opposing backs frequently). Freeman probably still rates over Stewart in a PPR environment because of his pass catching ability, but it is a really close call. -- KC#StartSitESPN For starting qb, Bortles or Roethlisberger??- Carlos Montanez (@Usa01usa) September 18, 2016Roethlisberger has the second toughest matchup among quarterbacks this week according to my matchup rating scale. Bortles threw 14 vertical passes last week (a very high single game number) and could do so again this week. Even with these caveats that look to be in Bortles favor, Roethlisberger pilots the best offense in the NFL and thus is arguably immune to matchups. That last fact puts the vote in favor of starting Roethlisberger. -- KCMichael Thomas or Michael Floyd? #StartSitESPN- Chris Brown (@cbreez_24) September 18, 2016Thomas has the advantage of playing in what will probably be the highest scoring game of the week (New Orleans at the New York Giants). That might seem to give him the edge, but Floyd is matched up against a Tampa Bay secondary that may have the worst set of safeties in the NFL. The Buccaneers and Cardinals are also both vertically inclined passing offenses and may end up throwing more vertical passes this week than in any other game in Week 2. Floyd is more central to his teams passing game than Thomas, so start Floyd. -- KC#StartSitESPN #FFNow Demariyus Thomas or roll with Eli Rogers?- The Johnson Five (@mylifewith3kids) September 18, 2016This is a tough call, as Adam Schefter is reporting that Thomas is expected to play in the Colts-Broncos 4:25 PM ET kickoff contest. Having noted this, Thomas may be limited with his injury and could have an upside cap due to the Broncos leaning on their ground game versus a suspect Colts rush defense. Rogers is more of a hit-miss prospect, but he has the upside of playing in the Steelers offense. The suggestion would be to start Thomas due to the favorable matchup and his being more central to his teams offense, but this is a case where either selection has a lot of risk. -- KC#StartSitESPN Rodgers or Bortles?- Nicholas Price (@nicholasp1182) September 18, 2016Dont scoff, fellow fantasy nerds, as Bortles outscored Rodgers overall last season and regularly throughout fantasy Sundays last fall. That said, Rodgers has produced 17 touchdowns and no picks in his last six visits to Minnesota and is again an elite fantasy option with his full complement of receiving weapons in place. Bortles is in a nice position as well, as a road dog in a potential shootout, but Rodgers is trustworthy in this spot. -- Jim McCormickKyle Rudolph Virgil Green or Brent Celek #StartSitESPN #streamingTEs- Anthony Sprotti (@helmmoose) September 18, 2016Green has a nice red zone role forming, albeit with a one-week sample and some preseason evidence, but one that is at least appreciable enough to differentiate from this crowd of streaming tight end options. -- J.M.#startsitESPN rivers or luck?- josh (@josh_moyston) September 18, 2016Ill side with our projections here and go with Rivers, who is simply in a stronger position to return value as a QB1 at home against an exploitable secondary. Passing volume could still drive value for Luck if the Colts get down, but with Denver employing a ball control offense, Rivers is likely to match or best Lucks passing opportunities. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Det Jones WR, Cle Crowell RB, or Den Sanders WR, flex position- Eric Helm (@ehelm3) September 18, 2016Lets go with Jones here. Sanders is in a nice spot against a depleted secondary, but a conservative passing offense counters the upside a bit. Jones led the Lions in targets and was the only downfield threat in the scheme, in some senses assuming the Calvin Johnson route tree. -- J.M.Steve Smith Sr or Michael Crabtree WR2 #StartSitESPN- Jake Salzbrunn (@jsalz1919) September 18, 2016I want to see Smith actually produce before sending him out there in starting lineups. This is one of those cases where Im fine wasting a good game if he delivers from the bench in fantasy leagues, as his inefficient numbers were glaring in Week 1. Crabtree, meanwhile, is a safer option and has the stronger red zone role on his team, if we are to trust the sample size over the past season. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Allen Hurns or Mohamad Sanu- Colby Davis (@TakeOffN321) September 18, 2016Call me a skeptic, but Im not sold on Sanu maintaining his production pattern from Week 1. Meanwhile, I think Hurns bounces back against Brandon Flowers and the Chargers secondary, especially in a game that could trend pass-heavy for the Jags given the healthy implied point total. -- J.M.Gronk is out, who to start? Warford, tamme, Pitta, Rudolph or zach miller?#StartSitESPN- Benitez J (@jones_calsones) September 18, 2016As noted above, Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out for the Patriots home game against the Dolphins. This is clearly a blow to his investors, but could be the best thing for his season-long value if he can get fully healthy. That said, his owners will need to source alternatives this week. Ill go contrarian here and pick Pitta over these more established names. Pitta has a rare rapport with Joe Flacco and had a sizable lead in routes and targets among the teams tight ends last week. The Browns safeties and linebackers are exploitable in coverage, so were cool with taking the requisite risk on Pitta. -- J.M.Mohamed Sanu or Sterling Shepard at flex? #StartSitESPN- Guy Hayun (@GuyHayun3) September 18, 2016Give me the rookie here. Am I chasing a higher ceiling in this case? Yup, but its really a good spot as Shepard was on the field for nearly 90 percent of the teams snaps last week and could again see a worthy share of the passing game against arguably the top matchup in fantasy for receiving corps. -- J.M.Bortles or Carr? Im torn! #StartSitESPN- Bryce N. Davis (@WhoIsBryceDavis) September 18, 2016Ill take Carr at home here with his bevy of passing game options. The Falcons just ceded huge numbers at home to Jameis Winston and have no pass rush to speak of. -- J.M.Alshon Jeffery or Donte Moncrief PPR #StartSitESPN- Michael John (@EnforceLA) September 18, 2016Good problem to have. Alshon is your guy here -- in fact he could produce truly elite numbers if the team schemes to get him snaps against seventh-round rookie Jalen Mills on the outside, as Phillys secondary is already dinged up. -- J.M.Garoppolo or Osweiler? #StartSitESPN- chip (@theotherchip) September 18, 2016Prefer Jimmys home setup and higher floor, however small the sample. Osweiler saved the day with some big plays last week, but Garoppolo appears more bankable in this steady game manager role against a softer defensive matchup. -- J.M.#startsitESPN PPR league pick two Evans, Edelman or GOlsen. Thanks- Marc Epstein (@MEpstein17) September 18, 2016I suggest sitting the tight end here, even one as solid as Olsen. Its just a preference for the higher route rate we see for receivers given the lack of pass blocking their roles naturally dictate. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy #StartSitESPNNeed out 2 of 3Jarvis Landry will fuller Fitzgerald- geez49 (@geez49) September 18, 2016I recommend sitting the rook for these more established PPR mavens, as weve already covered, these two receivers have elite reception rates over the past season. -- J.M.Ryan Matthews or Ameer Abdullah as Flex in standard league? Ezekiel Elliot and McCoy are RB1 and 2. #StartSitESPN- Nathan Simpson (@NathanSimpson22) September 18, 2016Im siding with Mathews given the potential for higher workload and the fact Theo Riddick consumes a valuable share of early-down and more importantly the high-percentage targets in the Lions volume-driven passing game. -- J.M.Start the Vikings defense at home opener against Rodgers or the Eagles defense on the road against Cutler? #StartSitESPN- Kevin Fitzgerald (@kfitzmj) September 18, 2016The rare D/ST question weve seen todayy -- going with the Eagles established pass rush in a game with a low point total.dddddddddddd If I can avoid the Packers capable offense in favor of Jay Cutler & Co., that makes sense. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Do I start Demariyus Thomas in the flex and gamble on his hip injury?- John Lane (@vaboy042) September 18, 2016With the late afternoon timing Id prefer to go with an alternative if your best bench options are from the earlier portion of the slate. Its better to get numbers than risk a no-show. -- J.M.Rawls or ware? #startsitESPN- noel anderson (@wieitot) September 18, 2016A really common dilemma this morning is Rawls and Ware, which makes perfect sense since ADP this summer allowed for both to prove affordable. Im siding with Ware this week, as I trust his role and workload more and would prefer to see Rawls net the uptick in usage first before deploying him over Ware, who has an established dual-threat role already. -- J.M.@espnfantasy Mike Wallace or Ameer Abdullah for flex? #StartSitESPN- Matthew Cook (@mtcook21) September 18, 2016Even as we sided over Abdullah earlier, lets go with the talented tailback in this one given his far higher floor and an expectation for double-digit touches. Abdullah looked really good on tape this past week and has enough of a share of the Lions offense to merit trust over Wallaces more boom-or-bust usage pattern. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Matt jones or Justin forsett for rb2? #StartSitESPN- Ben (@bennybuttons97) September 18, 2016Forsett is a popular name today. Jones was on the field for fewer than 40 percent of the teams backfield snaps in Week 1, but that was also due to the game script tilting pass heavy. Even if Jones earns increased usage here, I dig Forsetts even share for touches for a Ravens offense that could roll on the Browns as road favorites. Forsett tallied 170 yards from scrimmage last October against Cleveland. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy D Thomas or Crabtree in ppr today #StartSitESPN- Flint (@msubulldawgman) September 18, 2016Given a quality alternative, lets sit Thomas with his game-time decision scenario and instead trust Crabtrees sizable target share. It helps to consider Atlanta had no sacks last week and the fewest in 2015, so the Raiders passing game can get downfield today. -- J.M.Danny Woodhead or Latavius Murray in PPR format? #StartSitESPN- Bearded Jack (@JackVenezia) September 18, 2016In a PPR format, Im all about Danny boy, as the Jags have allowed the fifth-most receptions and fourth-most receiving yards to backs since the start of last season. Woodhead was targeted on 25 percent of his routes in Week 1 and simply has the higher floor in this scoring format than Murray. The Raiders back arguably has the higher touchdown ceiling, but thats definitely up for debate. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN T.Y. Hilton or Julian Edelman?- Jack Mahon (@jmahon99) September 18, 2016Jimmy Garoppolo completed all seven targets sent Edelmans way for nearly 10 yards per attempt against a capable secondary in Week 1. With a higher reception floor and softer matchup, Ill actually side with Edelman here despite Hiltons stronger reputation in the big-play department. The Denver secondary is a factor here, as theyve been stingy to vertical targets dating back to last season. -- J.M.Doug Baldwin or Kelvin Benjamin at flex? #StartSitESPN- Kyle Nichols (@jknich323) September 18, 2016Really solid options here, Kyle. Lets get Baldwin in there over the hulking Benjamin. Both have nice matchups, while Baldwins dominant target share and scoring rapport with Wilson is simply more attractive. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy ppr RB2 Langford or Ingram #StartSitESPN- JG (@Jwhirl312) September 18, 2016I like Langfords role as the bell cow for Chicago, but prefer Ingram in a bounce-back spot for the Saints in that potential points-fest in the Meadowlands. Ingrams snap share was troubling last week, as it was just above 40 percent, but the Saints afford their backs a h
