Phew. After a horrible Week 1, I think it’s fair to say I redeemed myself with a strong 9-4-1 ATS record, going 3-1 with my recommended plays (including my recommendation on Thursday night). Needless to say, Larry David was impressed.  My wife, on the other hand, was not impressed when our living room couch absorbed two liters of my back sweat.

Anyways, here are my thoughts from Week 2.

No one is safe from truckings and/or public embarrassment this week. Not Sean Lee, not Ed Reed, not Josh Morgan, and definitely not an innocent and well meaning sound guy in Philly.

With Darrelle Revis out, Antonio Brown has one of the most attractive matchups of Week 2.

Based on their common average draft positions back in August, it’s quite possible that many teams started Chris Johnson, Wes Welker, and Trent Richardson in Week 1. That’s when this happened…

So together in Week 2 we seek to not only keep our heads in the appropriate upright position, but we also hope to avoid asplosions. Godspeed.

Week 1 was a pretty big disappointment for me from a financial perspective.  This is the third straight year in which I’ve been decimated in the first week of the season, and I really can’t explain why.  Maybe it’s because I fall in love with certain games when the lines are first released a couple of months before the season, or maybe it’s just coincidence, but regardless, it’s not unusual for me to get off to a slow start.

I really don’t like the Week 2 board too much.  I’m looking for spots where the general public may have overreacted to what they saw in Week 1, but that’s going to lead me to picking a lot of bad football teams this week just based on line value.  Hopefully I can bounce back from my 4-9 ATS record last Sunday, going a paltry 1-3 ATS on my recommended bets.

Week 2 composite player rankings

With week one officially in the books, we’re back to bring you a fresh set of composite player rankings. It’s all part of our quest to help you taste sweet, sweet victory in your fantasy football league. That is, unless you’re in my fantasy football league, then I hope all of your players become disgruntled and sit out as part of a massive contract dispute (I’m a very petty man).

Last week’s rankings were almost entirely based on potential, but with real games factoring into this week’s numbers, we may be able to get a more accurate read on how a player might perform this year (albeit with a very small sample size).

This week’s experts are: Michael Fabiano/Adam Rank of and Dave Richard/Jamey Eisenberg of CBS
