NFL Fantasy Rankings: Top 10 at QB, RB, WR and TE

The warm-ups are over and the gloves come off in Week 2 of Fantasy Football.

And all the excuses are out the window. It’s time to stop whining and start winning.

The key to winning this week is to figure out what happened in Week 1 was real or whether it was just a mirage. The idea that Allen Hurns of the Jacksonville Jaguars is going to score two more touchdowns this week after burning the Philadelphia Eagles with two scores is not the way I’m going to invest.

Here’s a look at the top matchups at each position for Week 2.



  1. Peyton Manning, Denver vs. Kansas City – Huge day vs. weak defense. Three TDs and 325 yards.
  2. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay vs. N.Y. Jets – Breathing easier now that he’s not facing Seahawks.
  3. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis vs. Philadelphia – May be a top-3 quarterback by the end of the season. He’s already there this week.
  4. Drew Brees , New Orleans at Cleveland
  5. Matthew Stafford, Detroit at Carolina
  6. Matt Ryan, Atlanta at Cincinnati
  7. Tom Brady, New England at Minnesota
  8. Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco vs. Chicago
  9. Nick Foles, Philadelphia at Indianapolis
  10. Russell Wilson, Seattle at San Diego


Running Backs

  1. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota vs. New England – Best running back in football punishes NE defensive front.
  2. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia at Indianapolis – Just too quick for overmatched Colts D.
  3. Montee Ball, Denver vs. Kansas City – Broncos OL opens up huge holes.
  4. Matt Forte, Chicago at San Francisco
  5. Jamaal Charles, Kansas City at Denver
  6. Marshawn Lynch , Seattle at San Diego
  7. Arian Foster, Houston at Oakland
  8. DeMarco Murray, Dallas at Tennessee
  9. Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati vs. Atlanta
  10. Frank Gore, San Francisco vs. Chicago


Wide receivers

  1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit at Carolina – Simply can’t contain Johnson for 60 minutes
  2. Julio Jones, Atlanta at Cincinnati – Too much speed and Ryan Is on a roll.
  3. Demaryius Thomas, Denver vs. Kansas City – Has punished Chiefs badly in the past.
  4. A.J. Green, Cincinnati vs. Atlanta
  5. Brandon Marshall, Chicago at San Francisco
  6. Dez Bryant, Dallas at Tennessee
  7. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh at Baltimore
  8. Keenan Allen, San Diego vs. Seattle
  9. Percy Harvin, Seattle at San Diego
  10. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay vs. St. Louis


Tight ends

  1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans at Cleveland –  Will dominate Cleveland secondary with two TD catches.
  2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco vs. Chicago – Confidence high after superb effort vs. Dallas.
  3. Rob Gronkowski, New England at Minnesota – Simply won’t let Pats open season with consecutive losses.
  4. Julius Thomas, Denver vs. Kansas City
  5. Greg Olsen, Carolina vs. Detroit
  6. Zach Ertz, Philadelphia at Indianapolis
  7. Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota vs. New England
  8. Jordan Cameron, Cleveland vs. New Orleans
