Week 2 is the biggest opportunity to take advantage of flaws in market value of players, whether it’s because folks are slow to accept the new reality, or because they are overreacting to fluky Week 1 result. It’s up to you to determine which is which from the Week 1 firehose of new information, but make sure to take at least a few stands with your trades this week.
Kyler Murray (QB-ARI)
Murray was neck and neck with Russell Wilson to be the #1 fantasy quarterback before his injury last year, and he looked better than he did at any point last year in his dissection of the Titans. The Vikings defense had trouble with the Bengals and will be shorthanded, so expect Murray to lead the way to fantasy W’s again this week. He could be an unfair advantage at quarterback and reset the bar for fantasy scoring at his position.
Jarvis Landry (WR-CLE)
Odell Beckham Jr’s absence is ominous considering that he was cleared for minicamp way back in June. Landry is the de facto #1 receiver when Beckham is out, so the hive mind could be slow to catch up to his potential to become an everyweek WR3/Flex in PPR leagues this year.
Adam Thielen (WR-MIN)
Thielen was one of the week winners in the opening round of fantasy games, and that could become a regular occurrence on a Vikings teams that is mailing it in on defense playing under a likely lame duck coach. More pass attempts equals more value for Thielen, who should be on the block in dynasty leagues if he is on the roster of a team that had a rough Week 1 and is looking to the future.
Tom Brady (QB-TB)
Matt Waldman put out there that Brady could threaten Peyton Manning’s records, and Week 1 did nothing to dispel that notion. The backfield is full of unreliable players and the passing game is full of players who are either in their prime or playing like they are in their prime. Brady and Bruce Arians have no mercy and will be pleased to stick with a high powered passing game as the Bucs embark on Victory Tour 2021.
