  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Undervalued, overlooked players shine in week 2, kickers standout for some teams

Week 2 in the NFL proved to be the week of the underdogs as it featured many players that were undervalued or overlooked during many fantasy football drafts.

After a tough loss in week one to San Francisco, Aaron Rodgers lit up the stat sheet throwing for 480 yards and 4 touchdowns against the Washington Redskins. The other two quarterbacks to throw for over 400 yards this past weekend were Eagles Michael Vick and Chargers Philip Rivers. A sleeper in week two was Saint Louis Rams Sam Bradford who threw for 352 yards and 3 touchdowns in a game where the Rams fell just short vs. the Falcons.

Although Tampa Bay starts the season 0-2, Doug Martin continues plugging along. Last week vs. the Saints he rushed for 144 yards leading the NFL. After not running the ball one time in week 1, James Starks had a breakout game rushing for 132 yards and a touchdown. Starks also had 36 receiving yards in the win vs. Washington. Marshawn Lynch also had a big second week after his sluggish opening week in Carolina. Lynch accounted for three scores and 134 total yards in Monday nights victory vs. the 49ers. Denver Broncos Knowshon Moreno looks to be a high radar player on waivers after rushing for 93 yards and two scores vs. the New York Giants.

Four wide receivers had over 150 receiving yards this week. DeSean Jackson led the group with 193 yards, followed by Julio Jones, Jimmy Graham, and James Jones. San Diego Chargers wide out Eddie Royal had three touchdowns vs. the Eagles and now leads the NFL with five touchdowns two weeks into the season. Royal had a total of five touchdowns since the 2009 season back when he was on the Broncos. The six-year Virginia Tech alum looks to bounce off the waivers in many fantasy leagues. Tight end Martellus Bennett was not only an impact for fantasy football owners, but also for the Chicago Bears when he caught the game winning touchdown pass from Jay Cutler. Bennett had seven catches for 76 yards and two scores vs. the Vikings. Bennett looks to be a new target for not only Cutler, but fantasy football owners as well.

Although kickers usually don’t get much publicity, they can either be the hero or the goat for their team or your fantasy team. San Diego Chargers Nick Novak made the game winning 46-yard field goal while going 4-4 on the day. Jay Feely and Sebastian Janikowski also made four field goals for their teams as well.
