Heading into the second full week of the fantasy football season, its important to not overreact too much to the opening games. Davante Adams Super Bowl Jersey .One full slate is not enough to establish pure trends yet.Heres what to watch and plan for in Week 2:---TIGHT END TURNAROUNDSGary Barnidge was shut out in Week 1. He should bounce back against the Ravens with Josh McCown taking over at quarterback again. Delanie Walker was held to three catches for 42 yards in the first week, but the Titans should make more of an effort to get him the ball against the Lions. Coby Fleener caught one ball for 6 yards in his Saints debut. He has a better matchup against the Giants this week. Barnidge and Walker should definitely be started, and Fleener has to prove himself with his new team, but this may be the week to do it.---COWBOY UPDez Bryant was held to eight yards on one catch last week, and Ezekiel Elliott ran for just 51 yards. Look for both Dallas playmakers to rise in Week 2 against the rival Redskins. Dak Prescott will make a strong effort to get the ball to Bryant often, as the offense may open up a bit more this week. Elliott is a key if the Cowboys want to control the clock, and he should get a lot of usage to balance the offense and take some pressure off Prescott.---MINNESOTA FLATSAdrian Peterson was very disappointing in the first week, as he rushed for 31 yards on 19 carries. Now, owners who drafted him in the first round are quite concerned. His Week 2 outing against Green Bay will be a pivotal performance. Peterson is likely going to be fired up to show that his clunker against the Titans was just a fluke. In a rivalry game against the Packers, with Sam Bradford likely taking over controls of the offense, Peterson should display his better form. Keep the faith and expect a strong statement that he is still not close to being done.---HIGH FLYING BIRDSCarson Wentz led a seemingly explosive offensive attack in a Week 1 opener against the Browns. Now the Eagles have another good matchup at Chicago, but this is the first road start for the rookie, and he is expected be without tight end Zach Ertz. Look for Philadelphia to rely heavily on Ryan Mathews, who is a good start as a second running back, and Jordan Matthews will be peppered with a lot of targets. If Wentz can pass his first road test, the Eagles may be a better fantasy resource than projected in the preseason.---POWER OUTAGEWithout Keenan Allen, the Chargers offense becomes less dynamic. Travis Benjamin may now be overmatched as the potential No. 1 wideout, and Tyrell Williams must prove himself before he cracks your lineup. Philip Rivers now becomes much less of a sure thing as a top-12 quarterback. But Danny Woodhead should get a lot of additional work in the passing game and Antonio Gates can bounce back from a quiet opener as the Bolts host the Jaguars this week. Dont start any of the San Diego WRs, but Woodhead and Gates should be in point-per-reception lineups, and Melvin Gordon deserves some flex consideration after a good opener.---HURTING `HAWKSThe Seahawks frustrated fantasy owners in Week 1, scoring only 12 points against Miami in what seemed to be a very good matchup for their passing game. Russell Wilson suffered an ankle injury, and Tyler Lockett dropped a pair of passes. Wilson is ready to go for Sundays matchup, but it wont be an easy assignment for him, although its hard to bench him if you drafted him as your starter. The Rams have a strong defensive line and always give the Seahawks fits no matter where they are in the standings. The Seattle offense may be erratic in what could be a close and low-scoring NFC West matchup. Thomas Rawls has regained the starting RB job, though, and is worth a start as a second running back. Hope for a respectable outing from Wilson and for Lockett to boost his totals with some yardage after the catch.---HIGH-SCORING SAINTSNew Orleans exploded for 34 points in its season opener, led by 424 passing yards and four TD passes by Drew Brees. But they also allowed 35 points, and the Giants offense appears poised to hurt the Saints defense this week. Eli Manning could be headed for three TD passes or more, and even his secondary targets, such as promising rookie Sterling Shepard, and Victor Cruz on the comeback trail, are worthy of starting consideration. Rashad Jennings could finish off a TD drive or two. The New York defense has improved, so dont expect Brees and co. to roll quite as easily as they did against the Raiders.---DENVER DILEMMAThe Colts legitimately looked like they had the worst defense in the league last week against the Lions. But how much advantage can the Broncos take of the matchup this week? Demaryius Thomas has a hip issue that may prevent him from fully exploiting the Indianapolis secondary, and the teams only true playmaker in the passing game besides Thomas is Emmanuel Sanders. Thomas is likely to be a game-time decision and is a risky fantasy start despite the friendly matchup. The Broncos play in a late game Sunday and there will be safer alternatives in the earlier games. Sanders is a must-start as a third wide receiver, though, and C.J. Anderson is a great daily play. The Broncos may lack the firepower to make the best of the situation if Thomas is not himself, and their defense may get overworked against Andrew Luck as well. Do not bench Luck despite the fact that he faces Denver.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com. Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl Jersey .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. Adrian Amos Super Bowl Jersey . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. https://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Marcedes-Lewis-Jersey/ . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. Theyre renowned for their pace and skill but Australias women also showed theyre up for the physical battle to make a powerful statement in rugby sevens Olympic debut.The top-ranked Aussies underlined their gold medal favouritism by dominating their two opening day pool matches, scoring 15 unanswered tries in the Rio heat to seal a quarter-final berth on Sunday.While a third pool game against the USA is to come, the world series champions are almost certain to play Spain in the last eight and avoid arch-rivals New Zealand in Mondays semi-finals.Australia were always expected to easily swat aside regional qualifier Colombia, and did so 53-0 in the biggest victory of the day, but they also outclassed Fiji 36-0 in a six-try shutout.Fiji had shown their power game could unruffle stronger teams with an early 12-7 upset of USA but Tim Walshs side happily took up the challenge and threw it back.Going into the game we expected some shooters, some high tackles, some late hits, coach Walsh said.I thought we nullified Fijis strength and really played to ours.They were ready for a physical battle, and thats the way it is going to be from here on in.Leading challengers New Zealand, Canada and Great Britain all play a more confrontational game and aim to outmuscle the faster, wide-running Australians.The likes of Charlotte Caslick, Emma Tonegato, Nicole Beck and Ellia Green showed they would have a tough time catching them first.Caslick finished the day with four tries, equalling Kiwi stars Portia Woodman and Kayla McAlister, to show her class as a playmaker and finisher.Australia showed no Games jitters and scored with almost every touch of the ball against the Colombians in what resembled a training run.That overall performance was amazing, said co-captain Sharni Williams, who scored their first Olympic try after just 45 seconds. Its a great start.Weve set that benchmark and now well just keep building.Walsh was also pleased to come through day one with no injuries as backline linchpin Emilee Cherry overcame her hamstring strain to play, and fully ttest it out against Fiji with a 60m sprint to score. Blake Martinez Super Bowl Jersey. New Zealand, meanwhile, wasted little time announcing their medal credentials as they powered past Kenya despite having their captain Sarah Goss and Ruby Tui both sin-binned during the first half.Even with six players, though, the Kiwis were way too strong as early tries by Portia Woodman, Kayla McAlister and Huriana Manuel set them off and running, and the Kenyans hardly got a look-in as they finished on the receiving end of a 52-0 defeat, with Woodman scoring a hat-trick.New Zealand followed up that win by brushing aside Spain 31-5.Great Britains women launched their Olympic rugby sevens challenge with two pool victories.Emily Scarratts team followed up an opening 29-3 victory over host nation Brazil by crushing Japan 40-0 thanks to touchdowns from Amy Wilson Hardy, Alice Richardson, Joanne Watmore, Katy McLean, Emily Scott and Heather Fisher.They also did not concede a try in either game, setting themselves up for Sundays Pool C decider against Canada.Scarratt said: It was a shaky start, but we know sevens tournaments are not decided on the first day, and weve got two good wins under our belt.The second performance was really pleasing.We really pride ourselves on our defence, if you dont let other teams score tries, it is generally a lot easier to win games.Canada will be a step up tomorrow. They finished third in the World Series this year, and we know we will have to be right on our mettle, but we will recover and prepare properly.While the Japan game was a stroll - they earlier lost 45-0 against Canada - Britain led only 7-3 at the break after Brazil, inspired by their talisman Paula Ishibashi, dominated territory and threatened a possible upset.But Britain settled after half-time and ran out comfortable winners on the back of two Natasha Hunt tries, plus touchdowns from Watmore, Scott and Jasmine Joyce, with McLean kicking two conversions.
