Week 2 is not the time to panic about your Fantasy roster, but it might be the time to adjust. Injuries could force your hand, and we’re dealing with several big-name players being out, which isn’t fun. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find quality replacement options, whether they are already on your bench or off the waiver wire.

Michael Thomas(ankle),Le’Veon Bell(hamstring) andPhillip Lindsay(turf toe) aren’t expected to play in Week 2, and we already lostMarlon Mack(Achilles) andBlake Jarwin(ACL) for the season. We’re waiting to find out ifJames Conner(ankle) can play in Week 2, and ifMiles Sanders(hamstring),Kenny Golladay(hamstring) andCourtland Sutton(shoulder) will make their 2020 debut after being out in Week 1.

Your Fantasy roster could unfortunately be filled with red injury tags, but thankfully some reinforcements could be in play this week.Benny SnellandNyheim Hinesare two potential starting options at running back in Week 2, and we likeAnthony Miller, Laviska Shenault andParris Campbellas sleeper receivers.Dallas Goederthas emerged as a must-start tight end, andRyan Tannehillis a solid starting quarterback in Week 2.

Injuries stink, and it’s not fun making all of these roster moves after one week to plug holes. But hopefully you were smart with your draft or the waiver wire and can start some of these players with upside. We’ll help you with suggestions below, and let’s hope we don’t get ravaged with injuries to our stars again in Week 2.

It was great to seeBen Roethlisbergerback on the field Monday night in Week 1 at theGiants. After a sluggish start, he looked good, and he should continue to get better after missing most of last season with an elbow injury. He has the chance to go off in Week 2 against theBroncos.

Roethlisberger was 21-of-32 passing for 229 yards and three touchdowns against the Giants, and he looked comfortable as the game went on. He connected for two touchdowns withJuJu Smith-Schusterand one toJames Washington, and he should continue to improve in his rapport withDiontae Johnson,Chase ClaypoolandEric Ebron.

Roethlisberger also gets to face a tired and beaten up defense this week. The Broncos played the late Monday night game in Week 1 and now have to travel across the country to play theSteelers. They were already down standout pass rusherVon Miller(ankle) for the season, and cornerback A.J. Bouye (shoulder) was hurt against Tenneseee.

I have Roethlisberger ranked as a top 10 Fantasy quarterback in Week 2, but a top-five finish wouldn’t be surprising. He’s typically great at home, and this is his first time playing in Pittsburgh in over a year. It should be a dominant performance for Roethlisberger this week.

Cardinals (vs WAS): A lot was made about the way the Eagles offense played in Week 1 at Washington, but the Washington football Team’s offense wasn’t much better with 239 total yards. Haskins was sacked three times, and this offense could struggle again on the road against the Cardinals. Arizona also had three sacks in Week 1.

  • Packers (vs. DET):In one game at Green Bay last year, Stafford was sacked three times and had no touchdowns. The Packers pass rush should be a problem for Stafford this week.
  • Titans (vs. JAC):Jadeveon Clowney didn’t make much of an impact in his first game with the Titans at Denver in Week 1, but he should be able to chase down Minshew once or twice this week. This Titans defense should be tough at home.
  • Buccaneers (vs. car):The Buccaneers only allowed the Saints to get 271 yards in total offense last week in New Orleans, and this defense should be tough on the Panthers at home. Aside from Christian McCaffrey, this could be a bad game for this Panthers offense.

Patriots (at SEA):The Patriots defense was great against Miami last week in allowing just 11 points, and New England had three interceptions against Ryan Fitzpatrick. But obviously Russell Wilson is on a different level, and the Seahawks are playing at home. I would look for another DST option this week instead of trusting the Patriots.
