Complete Week Two Player Rankings & Projections l More Sit & Starts
Last week's Quarterback Starts (points in parenthesis):
Andrew Luck (37), Brandon Weeden (26), Ben Chappell (20), Christian Ponder (29), Sean Renfree (26), Kevin Riley (28), Austyn Carta-Samuels (27), Ryan Lindley (24), Spencer Keith (26)
Not too shabby, huh? Grade: A
Last Week's Quarterback Sits:
Dayne Crist (15), Darron Thomas (18), Dan Persa (35), Ryan Colburn (32), Steven Ensminger (DNP)
Persa and Colburn were huge mistakes. Can't take credit for Ensminger. Grade: C-
Onward and upward, we've got an incredible slate of games on tap.
Dan Persa, Northwestern vs. Illinois State
I learned my lesson last week; I should have gone with my instincts that told me Persa would be perfect in the Northwestern offense. He is perfect in the Northwestern offense, and there's a reason he's our 14th-rated quarterback this week.
Robert Griffin, Baylor vs. Buffalo
So, Buffalo comes out of Week One with the 21st-ranked national defense. They haven't seen RG3 yet.
Jake Locker, Washington vs. Syracuse
Our computer is out of its mind by ranking Locker so low this week. Last week Locker was okay, not great. And he posted 25 fantasy points at BYU. The Cuse will yield a bit more than the Cougars.
Zach Collaros, Cincy vs. Indiana State
This selection was made using the "Return Home + Bounceback Theory." If Collaros struggles to post good numbers in this one then it's panic time for his owners.
Longshot Gut Play: Jeremiah Masoli, Ole Miss vs. Tulane
The Green Wave will pay the price.
Kyle Padron, SMU vs. UAB
Sure he only threw for 218 yards with three picks at Texas Tech. And sure he was knocked around a bit. He's better for the experience last week, and he'll be just fine on Saturday.
Zac Dysert, Miami (Oh) vs. Eastern Michigan
Dysert played at Florida last week and he posted an incredible -0.16 fantasy points. Playing at Florida and then welcoming Eastern Michigan is like going from AP Calculus to a game of 4-Square. It gets a bit easier.
Logan Kilgore, MDTN vs. Austin Peay
Kilgore stood his ground against a Big Ten defense, and he'll post start-worthy numbers against Austin Peay, a fine school which boasts Athlon's greatest writer as an alum.
Ryan Radcliff, CMU at Temple
The Temple defense wasn't overly impressive against Nova, and the Chips will put up a few points in this one.
Sit Em! Quarterbacks
Sean Renfree, Duke at Wake Forest
I always try to include one of our projected Top-20 quarterbacks on the Sit List, and this week it's Renfree. I loved him last week, but heading over to Winston-Salem is a little different than tackling Elon. Projected at #20? Too much Boones Farm for the computer.
Aaron Murray, Georgia at South Carolina
Mr. Murray, welcome to the road in the SEC.
Garrett Gilbert, Texas vs. Wyoming
I guess Texas may really be committed to the run. Gilbert would post decent, not great, numbers.
Cameron Newton, Auburn
Gut feeling. Mississippi State will be ready.
David Isabelle, UAB at SMU
Not that SMU is a defensive power, but it's a UAB road trip against an improving foe.
Bryant Moniz, Hawaii at Army
Look for a little letdown after the big one against USC. A trip to West Point won't help, either.
Jeff Van Camp, Florida Atlantic vs. Michigan State (Ford Field)
FAU is bad, bad, bad.
