Fantasy Football Advice: Week 2 Mailbag
Which QB Do You Expect to Have the Biggest Week 2 Improvement? – @IDP_Iggy
While you can expect bounceback performances from most of the high-end QBs that disappointed in Week 1, there’s also some optimism for the often-scrutinized Ryan Tannehill. In Week 1, the former Texas A&M Aggie’s performance left much to be desired, with a 47.1% completion rate on 34 attempts that resulted in three interceptions and three sacks. It was, to put it bluntly, a rough outing.
However, there’s reason for optimism. Tannehill is set to go back home to Tennessee to face the Chargers, a team that just allowed Tua Tagovailoa to throw for 466 yards and three touchdowns. The pace of play in this matchup will likely pick up, which should benefit Tannehill’s overall output. So, if you have him rostered in a super flex league, don’t lose faith just yet; Week 2 could bring a significant improvement.
Should I Trade DeAndre Hopkins & Dameon Pierce for Jerry Jeudy, Kyle Pitts & Chuba Hubbard? – @Jzamudio24
This trade scenario involves several key players, and our fantasy football advice centers on making an informed choice. First, regarding Dameon Pierce, it’s essential to note that he had a tough matchup in Week 1, facing the Ravens. Our advice is not to bail on him just yet. As for DeAndre Hopkins, he saw a whopping 13 targets in his Week 1 performance, making him a more valuable asset than the fantasy point output tells.
On the other side of the trade, Jerry Jeudy is still dealing with an injury, and Kyle Pitts could continue to face the ripple effects of the run-heavy gameplans by the Falcons. Meanwhile, Chuba Hubbard is currently more of a high-end handcuff than a stand-alone fantasy option.
Given the trade-offs, our recommendation leans toward holding onto Hopkins and Pierce, as they provide more immediate and consistent fantasy value.
In a 12-Team Dynasty (Non-Superflex) League, Should I Accept a 2024 First-Round, 2024 Second-Round & 2024 Third-Round Pick for Drake London? – @FatSquirtle
This trade scenario involves future draft picks for Drake London, so it’s important to assess the long-term value of both sides.
The 2024 draft class is expected to be deep. Giving up a 2024 first, second and third for one player is a significant investment on your opponent’s end. This is especially true considering that Drake London didn’t have a standout Week 1 performance, scoring zero fantasy points on just one target.
Our fantasy football advice is to smash accept. You could potentially use those 2024 picks to acquire another promising young wide receiver and additional assets. This way, you can move off the often-incontinent and low-floored London to have the opportunity to build a more balanced and dynamic roster for the future. Depending on where you project your opponent to finish, you could be looking at an opportunity to scoop up Xavier Worthy or Malik Nabers in the first round of the 2024 rookie draft and still have two more picks to play with.
