Ravens’ Mike Wallace and Cardinals’ Carson Palmer are Sneaky Plays

Brandon Murchison September 14, 2017 1:54PM EDT

Quarterback

Carson Palmer @ Indianapolis Colts: After an abysmal Week 1 performance against the Detroit Lions, many Fantasy owners could very well find themselves dropping Palmer to look elsewhere. But, in this matchup against the Colts, you should expect Carson Palmer to get back on track. After giving up over 300 yards to Jared Goff and the Rams’ passing attack, this Colts defensive unit can be had. Now with David Johnson on the shelf, this offense must go through Palmer and the aerial attack. Expect for him to throw for 300 yards and two scores in this matchup. He could be fringe QB1 material this week, but he’s definitely worth a start if you are an Andrew Luck owner looking to stream the position.

Alvin Kamara vs. New England Patriots: Surprisingly, Kamara’s 31 snaps led the Saints in Week 1. Was it a coincidence that the Saints trailed for the entire game? Perhaps. But, with the Patriots coming to New Orleans, his role could remain the same. The Patriots are fresh off a disastrous performance after getting gashed by Alex Smith and Kareem Hunt. In what is likely to be a high-scoring back and forth affair, Kamara could hold huge value in PPR formats this week. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him log 10-15 rushes to go along with five catches while also finding the end zone. He’s worth starting at Flex in seasonal leagues, and he’s a decently cheap option for DFS in Week 2.

Wide Receiver

Mike Wallace vs. Cleveland Browns: With a one-catch performance in the opener, Mike Wallace did not seem to give Fantasy owners what they would like to see from the perennial Top 25 receiver. This week he plays the Cleveland Browns, who just surrendered an 11 catch, 182-yard day to Antonio Brown. Am I comparing Wallace to Brown? Not at all. But it’s more of an indictment of the Cleveland secondary’s ability to defend a team’s primary receiver. With Flacco shaking off the rust after missing most of training camp, look for the rapport with these two to start picking up. I could see Wallace giving you a six catch, 115- yard game with at least one score. He’s a worthy WR3 in season-long leagues and a sneaky play in DFS that not many owners will be on.

Tight End

Jason Witten @ Denver Broncos: Call this a gut feeling, but I foresee a very good day coming from Jason Witten here. Most of the defensive attention from the Broncos will be solely based on stopping Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys’ running game. The Broncos also sport one of the league’s best secondary tandems, limiting what the receivers will be able to do in this game. All this will open up the middle of the field for the short to intermediate throws by Dak Prescott. Witten will be used as a chain mover in this game and could finish with a seven catch, 60-yard performance. If he finds the end zone, that will be an added bonus. Witten is worth the start for owners who stream the position weekly. In DFS, he could be a forgotten player who may help you bring home some cash.

Kicker

Jason Myers vs. Tennessee Titans: After an impressive performance in Houston by the Jaguars in Week 1, the team returns home to play the Titans in Week 2. The Titans defense was somewhat suspect last week, which could open up a few things for Bortles and the Jags to take advantage of. The Jaguars may not score a bunch of touchdowns, but they should find themselves in scoring position often. This could lead to a very good day for Jason Myers to give you at minimum two field goals and a couple of extra points to cap it off.

Defense

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Chicago Bears: After getting their Week 1 game postponed, the Tampa Bay Bucs now open the season with a home game against the Chicago Bears. The Bears put up a decent late fight against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1, but the offense didn’t exactly set the woods on fire. With Mike Glennon returning to Tampa Bay, this defense will know what to expect from him, giving them an advantage here. Although it is tough to predict a defensive touchdown, a few sacks and at least two turnovers will be easy to expect. If you stream a defense in your season long leagues, pick up the Bucs for Week 2. In DFS, this could be a defense that is highly owned based on the matchup, but by the end of the game, they will provide plus value.
