Fantasy Football High Risk vs. High Reward | Week 2 

In week one of Fantasy Football High Risk vs. High Reward, we highlighted players such as Drew Brees, Miles Austin, Ray Rice, and Anquan Boldin. All of those guys found ways to produce despite the match up not being a favorable one.

In week two, we’re continuing to target the bigger names that could have rough matchups.

Let’s examine some of the riskiest players of week two that also have the potential to put up plenty of points:

Reggie Wayne, WR, Indianapolis Colts vs. Cleveland

Reggie Wayne makes the list two weeks in a row. It’s not that we doubt his talent because he always seems to make plays.

It’s the match up against the Browns top corner Joe Haden that scares us. Haden held A.J. Green to one catch (a touchdown), which wasn’t even his fault considering the defense wasn’t lined up.

Add in a mediocre Kerry Collins and you have a match up that is very risky. I’ll still plug Wayne in and hope he makes a couple big plays, however.

DeAngelo Williams, RB, Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay

Williams had just 13 touches in week one, thanks to Cam Newton’s success.

But that should get a boost closer to 20 touches against a Packers defense that Cam Newton should struggle against.

Williams can put up big numbers, but the Packers defense still forces turnovers and usually aren’t too shabby against the run. I’d consider sitting.

Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay

Newton blew up in week one and surprised many.

We know he can make big plays, but he’s facing a tough defense that will disguise coverages and put a lot more pressure on him.

Newton won’t repeat those numbers and could be in for a rough week. I’m not starting him.

Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Seattle

Seattle’s run defense is no joke. In week one they held Frank Gore to 59 yards on 22 carries.

Mendenhall struggled a bit, himself, in week one. I like him to out-produce his week one numbers, but getting 100 yards with a TD won’t be an easy task.

Maurice Jones Drew, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars @ New York Jets

Jones-Drew got his touches which led to a (close) win over the Titans.

He just doesn’t look 100% still, however, and he faces a run defense that is going to come at him hard.

The Jaguars offensive line is going to struggle against the defensive line as the Jets should be able to get in the backfield with ease.

Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore

Johnson was a severe disappointment in week one. He had fifteen touches, but didn’t even accumulate 50 total yards against the Jaguars.

It’s clear that he’s not completely in synch with the rest of the Titans offense, and he could have a tough game against a Baltimore defense which was huge in week one.

Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas

Gore was shut down by the Seahawks in week one, and Dallas isn’t too bad against the run.

Gore may have lost a step in the off-season, and I’m hesitating to start him even as a RB2.

Without a QB the defense can fear, throwing another defender in the box to stop Gore will be much easier for the Cowboys.

I’m not terribly crazy about the start.

Philip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers @ Patriots

Rivers is going to put up points regardless who he faces. The Patriots secondary struggled big time against Chad Henne as well.

But if there’s any team that can bounce back and adjust, it’s the Patriots who will likely blitz a lot more than the 18% of snaps they did in week one.

Rivers could put up top three QB numbers, but he could also regress against a defense that can force turnovers.

Roddy White, WR, Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia

The good news is that White gets to play at home in the dome.

The bad news is that Philadelphia has three corners that can cover him, although Rodgers-Cromartie is ailing right now.

I can’t sit Roddy because of his high amount of targets, but it’s a risky play.

Mike Wallace, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Seattle

Wallace’s big play ability goes without question. But as the biggest play making pass catcher they have, the Seahawks will focus on him.

Look for the speedy Earl Thomas to keep him covered over the top and help prevent him from making big plays.

Wallace can score, but having to deal with the quickness and ability of the talented second year safety in Thomas isn’t going to be an easy feat.

    Thanks for these tips. One thing I should also believe is always that credit cards offering a 0% rate of interest often entice consumers along with zero rate, instant endorsement and easy online balance transfers, however beware of the top factor that will void your own 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and throw one out into the bad house quick.
