Fantasy football players to keep an eye on Thursday night.
QB Geno Smith, Jets
Week 1 stats: 256 Passing yards, INT, TD
» Smith went 28 of 38 passing for 256 yards with an interception and a touchdown. He was sacked five times but led the team in rushing with six carries for 47 yards. With a potentially high-scoring game facing Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, look for Smith to be slinging the ball down the field tonight at Gillette Stadium, as the rookie tries to keep up with one of the best to ever do it.
WR Julian Edelman, Patriots
Week 1 stats: 7 catches for 79 yards, 2 TDS
» Edelman shocked the fantasy football world in Week 1, hailing in seven receptions, two touchdowns, and 79 yards vs. Buffalo. In Week 2, he goes up against one of the stingiest defenses in the league in the New York Jets. That being said, Brady will try to find familiar faces such as fifth-year vet Julian Edelman with a relatively new roster on offense before he can trust the newcomers.
TE Kellen Winslow, Jets
Week 1 stats: 7 catches for 79 yards, TD
» Winslow had a breakout performance vs. an above average Tampa Bay secondary in Week 1, catching seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. With New England up next, look for the former Patriot to get going early as he is quickly becoming Smith’s number one safety valve (eight targets last week)
