Week 2 NFL Fantasy Football Studs + Duds

Week 2 Studs and Duds

Each week, the CappersPicks.com fantasy football guru Dave B brings you players you need to be paying attention to – Remember – fantasy football championships are often won by those who live eat and breath fantasy football.

After all of the weekly games are finished be sure to check our waiver wire column, cheatsheets, a who’s hot, and who’s not report plus more in our fantasy football guide.


Week 2 is nearly over and if the first two weeks are any indication, this season is going to produce more than its share of Studs. Offenses are exploding but there are still a few missing the boat.

Check out Dave B`s Week 2 Studs and Duds and by all means leave a message to tell me what you think!

Studs of the Week:

Myles Austin – Dallas Cowboys – Austin had the game of his career in Week 2. Without Dez Bryant to take some of the focus off, Austin on a balky hamstring caught 9 passes for an incredible 143 yards and 3, yes 3 touchdowns. Can you say STUD!

Vincent Jackson – San Diego Chargers – Jackson had himself a game too. After making the Dud list last week, 10 catches, 172 yards and two scores has VJax co-Stud of the Week.

Other Studs:


Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers – Ya, maybe it is time to give Newton his due. He followed up an improbable 422 yards in Week 1 with 432 yards and a td throwing and another td on the ground. He did have 3 interceptions, but I will overlook that!

Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions – Stafford is on fire! He passed for 4 more touchdowns this week on 294 yards. He has quickly become unbenchable in Fantasy and he looks like an every week Stud!

Tom Brady – New England Patriots – Insane! Brady carved up a very good Chargers defense to the tune of 423 yards and three scores. Brady is a Studly as they come!

Honourable Mention: Matt Hasselbeck – Tennessee Titans, Tony Romo – Dallas Cowboys, Drew Brees


Adrian Peterson – Minnesota Vikings – Peterson is the only thing going for Minnesota. This Stud is carrying his team on his back. 141 combined yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 have AP on the Stud list again.

Fred Jackson – Buffalo Bills – Two weeks in a row? Jackson is defying expectation and becoming a Stud along the way. He had 130 combined yards (117 rushing) and two touchdowns on Sunday and is the most unforeseen Stud on the list.

Matt Forte – Chicago Bears – Forte is a combined yards monster. He has led his team in receiving in both their games this season and is running the ball effectively too. Forte has 166 combined yards (although only 49 on the ground) on his way to Stud – town!

Honourable Mention: Jahvid Best – Detroit Lions, Peyton Hillis – Cleveland Browns, Darren McFadden – Oakland Raiders, LeSean McCoy


Steve Smith – Carolina Panthers – Steve Smith has been sensational so far- another 156 yards on 6 catches has him on the Stud list for the second week in a row. Smith is on fire and is making his rookie QB look very good.

Kenny Britt – Tennessee Titans – Britt was a monster and helped the Titans to the biggest upset of Week 2. He had 9 catches, 135 yards and a td – worthy of the Stud list!

Larry Fitzgerald – Arizona Cardinals – 7 catches, 133 yards and a td. It was only a matter of time that Larry made the Stud list!

Honourable Mention: Jeremy Maclin – Philadelphia Eagles, Tony Gonzalez – Atlanta Falcons, Mike Wallace – Pittsburgh Steelers, AJ Green –Cincinnati Bengals, Eric Decker – Denver Broncos [ad-8469823]

Dud of the Week:

Antonio Gates – San Diego Chargers – zero, nada, zilch, bubkiss! Thanks Antonio for making the Dud of the Week decision very, very easy.

Other Duds:


Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens – Flacco had a pretty juicy matchup but was unable to generate much on Sunday. Less than 200 yards passing, only one td and two interceptions have Flacco on this week’s Dud list.

Matt Cassel – KC Chiefs – Ugh! 133 yards passing, zero touchdowns and three interceptions = Dud!

Donovan McNabb – Washington Redskins – Get used to seeing McNabb on the list – he is an over-the-hill, season long Dud.


Chris Johnson – Tennessee Titans – I am not sure what is going on here but in a game that his team won, Johnson generated 53 yards on 24 carries – barely over two yards per carry! BRUTAL!

Felix Jones – Dallas Cowboys – Jones separated his shoulder but played through it. All in all, Jones had 25 yards rushing on the day – a total Dud performance.

Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks – 11 yards rushing versus the Steelers!


Plaxico Burress – New York Jets – Zero catches, two targets makes Burress a stinkin`Dud!

Mike Williams – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – One catch, minus four yards – seriously!

Vernon Davis – San Francisco 49ers – Davis continues to frustrate owners. On Sunday, he was virtually invisible catching two balls for 18 yards – Dud!
