The fantasy football season is in full swing now. Players now have to live up to the hype of their week 1 performances. Many players went from zeros to heroes last week, and I expect the same to happen this weekend.

QUARTERBACK: Even though Ryan Tannehill had a bad game against the Redskins, I expect a breakout game from the Dolphins quarterback against the Jaguars this Sunday. Jacksonville has an awful defense, so the Dolphins should have a field day passing the ball.

Antonio Brown always finds a way to score points in fantasy football, and this week will be no different. ”

RUNNING BACK: Benny Cunningham is a quality starter this week following a great performance against the Seahawks, who arguably have the best defense in the league. I expect big things from Cunningham all season long, and this week isn’t anything different. Despite Adrian Peterson struggling against the 49ers last Monday, he should turn his game around and have a great day on Sunday versus the Detroit Lions.

WIDE RECEIVER: Antonio Brown always finds a way to score points in fantasy football, and this week will be no different. He is projected 17.53 points and I don’t see him having a problem achieving that. Julian Edelman is going to have a great game this weekend. With Brady back into his game, Edelman will have a lot of opportunities to score against the Bills.

TIGHT END: Travis Kelce seems like the only person from the Chiefs that is able to catch a Touchdown pass, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start him. He is projected a mere 7.88 points, but he always exceeds his expectations. Heath Miller is always a safety blanket for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, so I expect his to obtain a respectable 7-8 fantasy points against the 49ers on Sunday

DON’T START: Andrew luck is destined to disappoint again against a top tier Jets secondary. With T.Y. Hilton being out with a knee injury, don’t expect much from Luck and the Colts on Monday. Mike Evans should be avoided this week as well. With a sub-par Quarterback Jameis Winston throwing the ball everywhere, I don’t expect Evans to do too much. Another WR to turn the other way for is James Jones. He went off week 1 with 2 touchdowns and 51 receiving yards, but I don’t see that happening consistently even though they have lost Jordy Nelson for the year
