Ahmad Bradshaw RB Colts
Bradshaw looks to be the most intriguing start this weekend. With Vick Ballard out for the season, the two-time Super Bowl champion with the New York Football Giants, could be the first of many running backs who will see more action due to a teammate’s injury. Someone has to carry the rock, and with Bradshaw’s experience and success, why not him?
Leonard Hankerson WR Redskins
Hankerson’s two-touchdown performance in Week 1 may not happen again this year, but the fact that he led the Redskins in touchdowns, receiving yards, targets and receptions, how could you not give him a go for at least a week?
Terrelle Pyror QB Raiders
Last week Pryor showed all the attributes he had while at Ohio State in running the ball when he can and passing when he can’t run. For fantasy this is your ideal quarterback, a guy who can sling it when necessary and take off and run once the defense starts respects the passing game. If he can be more accurate, the sky’s the limit for this athletic phenomenon.
Mike Wallace WR Dolphins
Wallace had arguably one of the most disappointing Week 1 performances out of anyone. After signing a huge off-season contract with the Miami Dolphins, the 60-minute man has yet to find his rhythm with second-year QB Ryan Tannehill. In Week 2, Wallace will go up against the Indianapolis Colts in a dome. With Andrew Luck as the opposing quarterback, you know it’s going to be a passing fiesta.
Kyle Rudolph TE Vikings
Rudolph owners shouldn’t be surprised by his two catches for 27 yards in the first game of the year. What they are not used to is seeing Rudolph not catch a touchdown pass, as he caught nine last year and made his first Pro Bowl. Although when your quarterback throws three interceptions, I could see how the red-zone wasn’t really an option too often. Facing Chicago in Week 2 is where Rudolph will pick it up and get at least six points on the scoreboard this weekend at Soldier Field.
Robert Woods WR Bills
Woods scored the first touchdown of his career last week against the New England Patriots. His lone touchdown was also his only catch of the game, which is never a bad sign when your wide out is viewed upon as a red-zone target. Though I wouldn’t start him just yet, wait few more weeks and see how he does. The potential is there, now we wait to see if the targets are as well. BENCH
Washington’s defense looked very exhausted while playing the Philadelphia Eagles last Monday night. Now they must go face possibly the best quarterback in the league in Aaron Rodgers. With the Packers already off to a 0-1 start, this is a must win for both sides. I see a shoot-out on the horizon in this one. BENCH
Benjarvus Green-Ellis RB Bengals
Green-Ellis seems to always have plenty of touchdowns by season’s end. He’s not what you would call an explosive type of running back, but he’s a grinder. He’ll get you those tough yards when the game is on the line and goal-line carries as well. Off of 14 carries last week, he had 25 yards rushing, though he got you that one touchdown you’re searching for. Week 2 he faces Pittsburgh Steelers, who held Chris Johnson to just 70 yards off 25 carries. BENCH
Christian Ponder QB Vikings
With four total turnovers in Week 1 vs. Detroit Lions, Ponder will be on the bench for quit some time in the near future. Until he can show that he can control the offense and not turn it over, I don’t care whom he’s playing, especially this weekend when he faces one of the best defenses in the league, the Chicago Bears.
