Mississippi States offense is a work in progress after a disjointed opening week performance.South Carolina can relate.The Bulldogs (0-1) and Gamecocks (1-0) will meet in Starkville, Mississippi, on Saturday night with both programs hoping to find some consistent playmakers that can help them compete in the Southeastern Conference.South Carolina needed Elliott Frys 55-yard field goal in the final minute to beat Vanderbilt 13-10 on Sept. 1. The Gamecocks used two quarterbacks in the win -- Perry Orth and Brandon McIlwain. First-year Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said Orth did enough to earn the start against the Bulldogs, but its clear that the competition continues.Its a tough call to make, Muschamp said.Mississippi State used two quarterbacks -- Damian Williams and Nick Fitzgerald -- in its season-opening 21-20 loss to South Alabama. Williams played the majority of the game, throwing for 143 yards and running for 93 more. Coach Dan Mullen hasnt revealed his plans under center for the South Carolina game.The Bulldogs will also try to get star receiver Fred Ross more involved in the offense. He caught six passes for just 34 yards against South Alabama. His best play came on a 46-yard run in the first half.Theres only one ball, Mullen said. There are a lot of people who would like it into their hands, so well keep working as hard as we can to get as many people touches as we can.---Some things to watch when Mississippi State hosts South Carolina:JEFFERSONS GOOD START: Mississippi State senior defensive end A.J. Jefferson was one of the few bright spots in the teams loss to South Alabama. He made seven tackles, including a career-high four for a loss and two sacks. Jeffersons 28+ tackles for a loss in his career rank sixth in MSU history.LEO LEADS THE DEFENSE: Redshirt freshman linebacker Leo Lewis led Mississippi State with nine tackles, including two for a loss, in his college debut against South Alabama. The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder will likely be a mainstay on defense for the next few years. Said Mullen: He made some plays. Its good to see him get some play action. As a young player he has to learn the standard of play and how to play hard every single snap.MORE ORTH: Mississippi State will get another dose of the Orth family this week against South Carolina. After losing to South Alabama 21-20 at home last week with sophomore quarterback Evan Orth on the roster, the Bulldogs will face his brother, Gamecocks starting quarterback Perry Orth, on Saturday night. While Evan Orth did not play, he did watch -- and share some details and schemes with his brother this week.MORE COWBELLS: Ask any South Carolina player things they know about Mississippi State and one of the first things that come up are the cowbells. Bulldog fans are famous around the Southeastern Conference for ringing the loud, metallic-sounding cowbells to the distraction of opponents. Those cowbells, defensive lineman Dante Sawyer said, smiling and shaking his head. South Carolina has not played at Mississippi State since 2011 so almost no one on the roster has much firsthand experience at the droning sound except longtime SEC head and assistant coach Will Muschamp, the Gamecocks first-year head coach. We have our work cut out for us in Starkville, he said.SOUTH CAROLINAS STREAK: South Carolina has won the last seven games in the series dating back to 2000. The Bulldogs last beat the Gamecocks 17-0 in Starkville on Sept. 25, 1999.---AP Sports Writer Pete Iacobelli in Columbia, South Carolina, contributed to this story.---Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Iraq World Cup Jerseys .

After an exciting Week 1, youve got tough calls to make; lets get started on answering your fantasy football questions for Week 2.Rawls or ware? #startsitESPN- noel anderson (@wieitot) September 18, 2016Kansas Citys offense led the league last week in my good blocking rate (GBR) metric that measures how often an offense gives its ball carriers quality run blocking. Ware is healthy and should get the lions share of the carries again this week, so he gets the start over Rawls, who may end up splitting carries with Michael. -- KC JoynerPlease convince me to start Bortles over Luck this week #StartSitESPN- Seth T (@sht75) September 18, 2016You got it. There are many reasons to think the Jaguars have playoff potential and their vertical passing game (production on aerials thrown 11 or more yards downfield) is chief among them. Bortles threw 14 vertical passes last week, which is a very high single game number, and should throw just as many this week vs. a so-so Chargers secondary. Lucks road game at Denver is arguably the toughest matchup any quarterback has this week. Add that to the Colts not having the ability to deal well with a power defense and it ranks Bortles over Luck. -- KC@ESPNFantasy Sterling Shepherd or TJ Yeldon at the flex position? PPR format #StartSitESPN- Matt H (@mholtz81) September 18, 2016Yeldon will get a bell cow workload since Chris Ivory has been ruled out of this contest due to illness. As well as Shepard played last week and as favorable as his matchup is vs. a terrible Saints secondary, hes still an alternate receiver in that offense. Workload wins out over upside, so start Yeldon. -- KC#StartSitESPN Stafford or Manning?- Tony Sultini (@Tsult25) September 18, 2016Manning arguably has the most favorable matchup of the week against an abysmal Saints pass defense that is now missing its best cornerback (Delvin Breaux). Eli should end throwing the ball as often as Stafford, so volume wont be an issue. That makes Manning the hands down winner here. -- KC@ESPNFantasy start or sit Todd Gurley #StartSitESPN- The Dude (@mmoore1620) September 18, 2016For all of their issues on offense last week, Los Angeles still ranked eighth in the league in my good blocking rate metric that measures how often an offense gives its ball carriers quality blocking. Gurley doesnt need good blocking very often to break off a long touchdown run, so he has to be put in the lineup this week. -- KC@ESPNFantasy #StartSitESPN Moncrief or Shepard WR2 PPR? Thanks- Donna Cromeans (@DJRiter) September 18, 2016It is really difficult to trust Moncrief in that tough matchup at Denver. Shepard is likely to hit a big play against the aforementioned terrible Saints secondary, so he should get the start. -- KC@ESPNFantasy cooks or dez standard league #StartSitESPN- Ramon Quiroz (@TheRealRayRay27) September 18, 2016Bryant saw only five targets last week, but four of those were of the stretch vertical variety (meaning they traveled 20 or more yards downfield). That gives Bryant upside potential against Washington, but Cooks is playing in what might be the highest scoring game of the week. The suggestion is to go with Cooks in this one. -- KCcam newton or eli manning? #StartSitESPN #RosterAdvisorESPN #StartSitESPN- Nick Dumitriu (@nick_dumitriu) September 18, 2016San Franciscos defense ranked 25th last week in my good blocking rate metric, meaning they allowed the opposing offense to give ball carriers quality run blocking quite often. That means Carolina will be able to lean on the ground game early and often. The Panthers likely dont want Newton to be rushing the ball any more than absolutely necessary after the hits he took in Week 1. Add those factors to Manning having arguably the most favorable matchup of the week and it puts Eli in the lineup over Cam. -- KC@espnfantasy Flex PPR - Jeremy Hill or Tyler Lockett?? #StartSitESPN- Brian Flores (@B_Flo23) September 18, 2016Hill is facing a Pittsburgh rush defense that had the third-best mark in good blocking rate allowed in Week 1. This metric measures how often a defense allows the offense to give its ball carriers quality run blocking, so Hill may be hard pressed to break off long gains. Having noted this, Seattles rush defense ranked 28th in that category last week. That means the Seahawks can go to their ground game as often as they like, something that doesnt bode well for Locketts target volume. I would go with Hill because of that limitation. -- KC@ESPNFantasy #StartSitESPN Ravens D or Pats D- Pj (@SuperJParty) September 18, 2016Its always good to add a defense/special teams quandary to the mix. The Ravens will likely have the turnover edge due to facing Josh McCown, a quarterback with a long history of posting subpar numbers in my bad decision rate metric that measures how often a quarterback makes a mental error that leads to a turnover opportunity for the opposing team. That kind of upside is difficult to ignore, so go with McCown. -- KCTodd Gurley or Isaiah Crowell? #StartSitESPN- Emily Mallis (@emmallis) September 18, 2016Nothing illustrates how the fantasy world has lost faith in Gurley more than this question. As bad as he played last week, Gurley has more home run potential in one quarter of his game than Crowell will post in an entire game. As noted earlier, the Rams offense placed eighth in the league last week in my good blocking rate metric. All of these factors combine to give Gurley the start edge this week. -- KCFlex Spot: Golden Tate or TJ Yeldon #StartSitESPN- Aaron Martinez (@A_Mar620) September 18, 2016Tate was expected to be utilized more often on downfield throws this year, but in Week 1 all seven of his targets were of the short pass variety (meaning they were thrown 10 or fewer yards downfield). Yeldon will get the bell cow workload since Ivory will miss this game due to illness, so he deserves the start this week. -- KCWill fuller or Emmanuel Sanders #FantasyFootball #StartSitESPN- D??? (@DC_Chillin) September 18, 2016Fuller outgained DeAndre Hopkins last week in targets, receiving yards and fantasy points. Fuller also looked like a veteran wideout on tape. Sanders has a very favorable matchup against a banged up Colts secondary, but the Broncos are going to lean on the power rushing game since the Colts rush defense is nearly as bad as their pass defense. The suggestion would be to play for the upside and start Fuller. -- KCJ. Stewart or D. Freeman? 1/2 PPR #StartSitESPN- Buck Williams BowTie (@BWilliamsBowTie) September 18, 2016Freeman owners should be very worried about last week, as Tevin Coleman had nearly as many offensive snaps as Freeman (36 for Freeman, 32 for Coleman) and nearly as many touches (15 for Freeman, 13 for Coleman). Stewart is facing a San Francisco defense that ranked 25th in my good blocking rate metric (which means they allowed good blocking for opposing backs frequently). Freeman probably still rates over Stewart in a PPR environment because of his pass catching ability, but it is a really close call. -- KC#StartSitESPN For starting qb, Bortles or Roethlisberger??- Carlos Montanez (@Usa01usa) September 18, 2016Roethlisberger has the second toughest matchup among quarterbacks this week according to my matchup rating scale. Bortles threw 14 vertical passes last week (a very high single game number) and could do so again this week. Even with these caveats that look to be in Bortles favor, Roethlisberger pilots the best offense in the NFL and thus is arguably immune to matchups. That last fact puts the vote in favor of starting Roethlisberger. -- KCMichael Thomas or Michael Floyd? #StartSitESPN- Chris Brown (@cbreez_24) September 18, 2016Thomas has the advantage of playing in what will probably be the highest scoring game of the week (New Orleans at the New York Giants). That might seem to give him the edge, but Floyd is matched up against a Tampa Bay secondary that may have the worst set of safeties in the NFL. The Buccaneers and Cardinals are also both vertically inclined passing offenses and may end up throwing more vertical passes this week than in any other game in Week 2. Floyd is more central to his teams passing game than Thomas, so start Floyd. -- KC#StartSitESPN #FFNow Demariyus Thomas or roll with Eli Rogers?- The Johnson Five (@mylifewith3kids) September 18, 2016This is a tough call, as Adam Schefter is reporting that Thomas is expected to play in the Colts-Broncos 4:25 PM ET kickoff contest. Having noted this, Thomas may be limited with his injury and could have an upside cap due to the Broncos leaning on their ground game versus a suspect Colts rush defense. Rogers is more of a hit-miss prospect, but he has the upside of playing in the Steelers offense. The suggestion would be to start Thomas due to the favorable matchup and his being more central to his teams offense, but this is a case where either selection has a lot of risk. -- KC#StartSitESPN Rodgers or Bortles?- Nicholas Price (@nicholasp1182) September 18, 2016Dont scoff, fellow fantasy nerds, as Bortles outscored Rodgers overall last season and regularly throughout fantasy Sundays last fall. That said, Rodgers has produced 17 touchdowns and no picks in his last six visits to Minnesota and is again an elite fantasy option with his full complement of receiving weapons in place. Bortles is in a nice position as well, as a road dog in a potential shootout, but Rodgers is trustworthy in this spot. -- Jim McCormickKyle Rudolph Virgil Green or Brent Celek #StartSitESPN #streamingTEs- Anthony Sprotti (@helmmoose) September 18, 2016Green has a nice red zone role forming, albeit with a one-week sample and some preseason evidence, but one that is at least appreciable enough to differentiate from this crowd of streaming tight end options. -- J.M.#startsitESPN rivers or luck?- josh (@josh_moyston) September 18, 2016Ill side with our projections here and go with Rivers, who is simply in a stronger position to return value as a QB1 at home against an exploitable secondary. Passing volume could still drive value for Luck if the Colts get down, but with Denver employing a ball control offense, Rivers is likely to match or best Lucks passing opportunities. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Det Jones WR, Cle Crowell RB, or Den Sanders WR, flex position- Eric Helm (@ehelm3) September 18, 2016Lets go with Jones here. Sanders is in a nice spot against a depleted secondary, but a conservative passing offense counters the upside a bit. Jones led the Lions in targets and was the only downfield threat in the scheme, in some senses assuming the Calvin Johnson route tree. -- J.M.Steve Smith Sr or Michael Crabtree WR2 #StartSitESPN- Jake Salzbrunn (@jsalz1919) September 18, 2016I want to see Smith actually produce before sending him out there in starting lineups. This is one of those cases where Im fine wasting a good game if he delivers from the bench in fantasy leagues, as his inefficient numbers were glaring in Week 1. Crabtree, meanwhile, is a safer option and has the stronger red zone role on his team, if we are to trust the sample size over the past season. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Allen Hurns or Mohamad Sanu- Colby Davis (@TakeOffN321) September 18, 2016Call me a skeptic, but Im not sold on Sanu maintaining his production pattern from Week 1. Meanwhile, I think Hurns bounces back against Brandon Flowers and the Chargers secondary, especially in a game that could trend pass-heavy for the Jags given the healthy implied point total. -- J.M.Gronk is out, who to start? Warford, tamme, Pitta, Rudolph or zach miller?#StartSitESPN- Benitez J (@jones_calsones) September 18, 2016As noted above, Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out for the Patriots home game against the Dolphins. This is clearly a blow to his investors, but could be the best thing for his season-long value if he can get fully healthy. That said, his owners will need to source alternatives this week. Ill go contrarian here and pick Pitta over these more established names. Pitta has a rare rapport with Joe Flacco and had a sizable lead in routes and targets among the teams tight ends last week. The Browns safeties and linebackers are exploitable in coverage, so were cool with taking the requisite risk on Pitta. -- J.M.Mohamed Sanu or Sterling Shepard at flex? #StartSitESPN- Guy Hayun (@GuyHayun3) September 18, 2016Give me the rookie here. Am I chasing a higher ceiling in this case? Yup, but its really a good spot as Shepard was on the field for nearly 90 percent of the teams snaps last week and could again see a worthy share of the passing game against arguably the top matchup in fantasy for receiving corps. -- J.M.Bortles or Carr? Im torn! #StartSitESPN- Bryce N. Davis (@WhoIsBryceDavis) September 18, 2016Ill take Carr at home here with his bevy of passing game options. The Falcons just ceded huge numbers at home to Jameis Winston and have no pass rush to speak of. -- J.M.Alshon Jeffery or Donte Moncrief PPR #StartSitESPN- Michael John (@EnforceLA) September 18, 2016Good problem to have. Alshon is your guy here -- in fact he could produce truly elite numbers if the team schemes to get him snaps against seventh-round rookie Jalen Mills on the outside, as Phillys secondary is already dinged up. -- J.M.Garoppolo or Osweiler? #StartSitESPN- chip (@theotherchip) September 18, 2016Prefer Jimmys home setup and higher floor, however small the sample. Osweiler saved the day with some big plays last week, but Garoppolo appears more bankable in this steady game manager role against a softer defensive matchup. -- J.M.#startsitESPN PPR league pick two Evans, Edelman or GOlsen. Thanks- Marc Epstein (@MEpstein17) September 18, 2016I suggest sitting the tight end here, even one as solid as Olsen. Its just a preference for the higher route rate we see for receivers given the lack of pass blocking their roles naturally dictate. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy #StartSitESPNNeed out 2 of 3Jarvis Landry will fuller Fitzgerald- geez49 (@geez49) September 18, 2016I recommend sitting the rook for these more established PPR mavens, as weve already covered, these two receivers have elite reception rates over the past season. -- J.M.Ryan Matthews or Ameer Abdullah as Flex in standard league? Ezekiel Elliot and McCoy are RB1 and 2. #StartSitESPN- Nathan Simpson (@NathanSimpson22) September 18, 2016Im siding with Mathews given the potential for higher workload and the fact Theo Riddick consumes a valuable share of early-down and more importantly the high-percentage targets in the Lions volume-driven passing game. -- J.M.Start the Vikings defense at home opener against Rodgers or the Eagles defense on the road against Cutler? #StartSitESPN- Kevin Fitzgerald (@kfitzmj) September 18, 2016The rare D/ST question weve seen todayy -- going with the Eagles established pass rush in a game with a low point total.dddddddddddd If I can avoid the Packers capable offense in favor of Jay Cutler & Co., that makes sense. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Do I start Demariyus Thomas in the flex and gamble on his hip injury?- John Lane (@vaboy042) September 18, 2016With the late afternoon timing Id prefer to go with an alternative if your best bench options are from the earlier portion of the slate. Its better to get numbers than risk a no-show. -- J.M.Rawls or ware? #startsitESPN- noel anderson (@wieitot) September 18, 2016A really common dilemma this morning is Rawls and Ware, which makes perfect sense since ADP this summer allowed for both to prove affordable. Im siding with Ware this week, as I trust his role and workload more and would prefer to see Rawls net the uptick in usage first before deploying him over Ware, who has an established dual-threat role already. -- J.M.@espnfantasy Mike Wallace or Ameer Abdullah for flex? #StartSitESPN- Matthew Cook (@mtcook21) September 18, 2016Even as we sided over Abdullah earlier, lets go with the talented tailback in this one given his far higher floor and an expectation for double-digit touches. Abdullah looked really good on tape this past week and has enough of a share of the Lions offense to merit trust over Wallaces more boom-or-bust usage pattern. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Matt jones or Justin forsett for rb2? #StartSitESPN- Ben (@bennybuttons97) September 18, 2016Forsett is a popular name today. Jones was on the field for fewer than 40 percent of the teams backfield snaps in Week 1, but that was also due to the game script tilting pass heavy. Even if Jones earns increased usage here, I dig Forsetts even share for touches for a Ravens offense that could roll on the Browns as road favorites. Forsett tallied 170 yards from scrimmage last October against Cleveland. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy D Thomas or Crabtree in ppr today #StartSitESPN- Flint (@msubulldawgman) September 18, 2016Given a quality alternative, lets sit Thomas with his game-time decision scenario and instead trust Crabtrees sizable target share. It helps to consider Atlanta had no sacks last week and the fewest in 2015, so the Raiders passing game can get downfield today. -- J.M.Danny Woodhead or Latavius Murray in PPR format? #StartSitESPN- Bearded Jack (@JackVenezia) September 18, 2016In a PPR format, Im all about Danny boy, as the Jags have allowed the fifth-most receptions and fourth-most receiving yards to backs since the start of last season. Woodhead was targeted on 25 percent of his routes in Week 1 and simply has the higher floor in this scoring format than Murray. The Raiders back arguably has the higher touchdown ceiling, but thats definitely up for debate. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN T.Y. Hilton or Julian Edelman?- Jack Mahon (@jmahon99) September 18, 2016Jimmy Garoppolo completed all seven targets sent Edelmans way for nearly 10 yards per attempt against a capable secondary in Week 1. With a higher reception floor and softer matchup, Ill actually side with Edelman here despite Hiltons stronger reputation in the big-play department. The Denver secondary is a factor here, as theyve been stingy to vertical targets dating back to last season. -- J.M.Doug Baldwin or Kelvin Benjamin at flex? #StartSitESPN- Kyle Nichols (@jknich323) September 18, 2016Really solid options here, Kyle. Lets get Baldwin in there over the hulking Benjamin. Both have nice matchups, while Baldwins dominant target share and scoring rapport with Wilson is simply more attractive. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy ppr RB2 Langford or Ingram #StartSitESPN- JG (@Jwhirl312) September 18, 2016I like Langfords role as the bell cow for Chicago, but prefer Ingram in a bounce-back spot for the Saints in that potential points-fest in the Meadowlands. Ingrams snap share was troubling last week, as it was just above 40 percent, but the Saints afford their backs a healthy batch of goal-line touches and have targeted their backs with the second-highest frequency, ?behind only Detroit, since 2014. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy you like Freeman or Derrick Henry if you had to start one for rb2? #StartSitESPN- Speed Kills (@Jason_N_PDX) September 18, 2016Henrys time will come, but hes still an understudy at this stage, playing just 30 percent of the snaps and struggling to get on track on the ground in Week 1. Given this, Freeman is still in a better spot to produce than the rookie. We saw Freeman net the coveted goal-line role in the preseason and throughout 2015, so there is still promise in that department even if a committee has developed in Atlantas backfield. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN flex position- Bryant, Landry, or Cobb. PPR- Ryan Welch (@Rywelch) September 18, 2016Landry has 117 receptions since the start of last season, tied with Larry Fitzgerald for third most in the league over this span, thus his production pattern is so bankable for PPR leagues. Bryant is clearly the superior talent of this trio, but he has really struggled with quarterbacks other than Tony Romo, hauling in fewer than half of his targets for just over 6 yards per target. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Wheaton or John Brown?- dblanchard (@donb812) September 18, 2016Wheaton is dinged up and was never really so efficient or effective outside of that one big game against the Seahawks last season. Brown struggled last week, but was on the field for more than 70 percent of the teams snaps and simply is the better player and has a stronger rapport with his quarterback. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Palmer or Flacco?- Philonic (@philonic) September 18, 2016The Cardinals daring vertical offense under Bruce Arians offers a great spectrum of floor and ceiling for Palmer, who was among the most consistent fantasy performers last year. The Bucs defense is talented, but also surrendered more than 17 fantasy points per game to opposing arms last season, thus well side with Palmer positioned as a home favorite in this one. I do dig Flacco in a volume-driven Trestman system against a soft defense, but think we can trust Palmer a good deal more in a far better overall offense. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Foster or Gore in PPR? #StartSitESPN- SoloNoR2D2 (@PhillyzPhan) September 18, 2016Gore isnt in a good spot here against a stout rush defense on the road, while Foster has a much better total yardage role; his receiving pedigree vaults him ahead of Gore here. -- J.M.Justin Forsett Rb Ravens or Jordan Matthews Wr Eagles? PPR Leauge #StartSitESPN- Ezra Oliver (@RealEzraOliver) September 18, 2016With 14 targets in Week 1 and Carson Wentz texting him at least three times per hour (maybe we made that second part up), Matthews clearly gets the nod in PPR formats. -- J.MLeGarrette Blount or Spencer Ware? PPR #StartSitESPN- Just Alf (@thealf420) September 18, 2016Blount has real value as the early-down workhorse for the Patriots, but in a format that rewards receptions, the nod goes to Ware, who just flashed awesome production in this department despite entering Week 1 with just 5 receiving yards to his name previously. Simply put, we trust Wares workload more. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Kirk Cousins or Drew Brees- Evan Hazen (@evan_hazen) September 18, 2016I get the hesitation with Brees given his home/road splits really favor him at the Superdome, but the implied point total is lofty and well over 50 points, suggesting the Saints offense will be plenty busy in this game, and that funnels through Brees. Hes the guy here. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Raider WR Murray or Panther WR Stewart?- Timothy (@pfirefighter86) September 18, 2016Latavius Murray is in a solid position to consume a volume of carries as the teams early-down workhorse. As home favorites against an Atlanta team that has surrendered the most rushing touchdowns to backs since the start of last season, Murray is in a nice spot to deliver solid RB2 production. Stewart is also on a sizable home favorite, but tends to cede valuable goal-line touches to Cam Newton and Mike Tolbert, while banking on Murray appears more reliable. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Zach Miller or Jesse James?- John Stolnis (@FelskeFiles) September 18, 2016Lets go with The Outlaw in this one. The Bengals have been solid in keeping tight ends out of the end zone, with just one score surrendered to the position since the start of last season, but have also given up the second-most receptions and are one of just five teams to have allowed at least 1,000 yards receiving to the position over this span. With Vontaze Burfict out of the lineup for the Bengals, we find it easier for opponents to pick on the middle of the field. Miller netted a reception on just 10 percent of his routes in Week 1, while James rate was nearly 18 percent. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN cruz or yeldon?- Vaporize (@Jae_Grizzy) September 18, 2016The Chargers have allowed the fifth-most receiving yards, the most yards per reception (8.62), the third-most rushing touchdowns and second-most yards per carry (4.97) to running backs since the start of the 2015 season. Manti Teo allowed seven completions on seven targets last week, so things look good for Yeldons floor as the workhorse with Chris Ivory still out. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Melvin Gordon or Arian foster at RB2. Standard. @ESPNFantasy- Fat_Happy_Buddha (@FatHappy_Buddha) September 18, 2016With 100 yards from scrimmage last week against a stout Seattle front, it marked the 50th time Foster has met this yardage threshold since becoming a starter in 2010, with only LeSean McCoy (53) enjoying more such outings. That said, well take the dominant market share of Foster heading into New England over Gordons minority take in the Chargers backfield. Even as the Chargers led most of the game in Kansas City last week and with two touchdowns to his name in the outing, Gordon was out-snapped significantly by Danny Woodhead and ran just three routes to Woodys 28 and saw Woodhead enjoy a 9-4 snap advantage in the red zone. Foster sees no such competition, thus his fantasy floor, and ceiling, are likely higher. -- J.M.PPR diggs or wallace? #StartSitESPN- GhostRider_2002 (@GhostRider_2002) September 18, 2016This one isnt so cut and dried, as its really about different usage patterns and is a floor vs. ceiling debate in some senses. Diggs likely has the higher floor of the two in that his usage share in the teams passing game is sizable, but I tend to side with Wallaces higher ceiling against an entirely exploitable Cleveland secondary. Wallace was targeted a team-high nine times in Week 1, good for a target on a healthy 27 percent of his routes, compared to a 20 percent target/route share for Wallace. That said, Wallaces average target traveled 16 yards and his vertical prowess is well established, while snaps against corner Jamar Taylor and Tramon Williams could signal another series of big plays for the speedster. Personally, I side with Wallaces ceiling in standard leagues since its mostly about yardage and touchdown potential, while PPR leagues reward Diggs higher target share more. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Theo riddick or spencer ware? ppr league #StartSitESPN- Bradley B (@BedtimeBJJ) September 18, 2016Riddick enjoyed an awesome Week 1, but the Titans have allowed the fewest receptions to backs since the start of last season and Ware is the rare bell cow back in the workload sense, if not in the snap share department. Even as the Texans are a solid defensive group, Wares goal-line usage and impressive spike in receiving success this past week signals RB1 upside, even in PPR formats. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Tate or Fuller PPR- Jen Haggard-Mlynarek (@JenHaggard) September 18, 2016Even after a relatively quiet Week 1, Tate still netted seven receptions and has the higher floor of these options for PPR formats. Tate, after all, was fourth in the league in routes run last season and is ideally suited for this high-percentage Detroit offense. Fuller is clearly an exciting prospect and merits inclusion in this decision, but Id go with the more bankable target pattern here in Tate. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN Tate or Fuller PPR- Jen Haggard-Mlynarek (@JenHaggard) September 18, 2016I really dig Forsetts setup this week and believe hes a really nice flex option, but Ill stick with Gurley given his dominant market share of the Rams backfield touches and his sole claim to any goal-line work that might occur. The Rams are in an ugly spot here once again, but were simply trusting the superior talent. Gurley earned the third-highest rushing grade on Pro Football Focus even in the face of that ugly stat line Monday. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Alex smith or Brock Oswiler #StartSitESPN- Brittney? (@BrittneyBusse) September 18, 2016It gets real out here behind center, as Brittney is deciding between two QB2 options to start this week. With his rushing component factored in, Smith is the more bankable play here, as he produced at least 13 fantasy points in standard leagues in all but two games in 2015 and just set a career high in completions in Week 1. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Kenny Britt or Phillip dorsett #startsitespn- Not Matt (@Matt_Ty_) September 18, 2016Going deep again, both in terms of league size (assuming) and vertical usage, as both of these receivers are known for vertical receiving roles. Ill go with Dorsett here, as Britts downfield prowess -- he was top three in air yards per target last year -- is difficult to establish with Case Keenum struggling behind center. Even against a sound Denver secondary, we can envision Andrew Luck getting a few deep shots to Dorsett, who sees a healthy snap rate with the team running three-receiver sets with regularity. -- J.M.@ESPNFantasy Eddie Lacy or Willie Snead at Flex in PPR? Have Ware and Gurley at RB. #StartSitESPN- Blake Currie (@spicy_currie123) September 18, 2016With the PPR format and that high-scoring climate in North Jersey claiming the highest implied point total, Ill side with Snead over Lacy. I actually often trend to siding with the higher floor of a double-digit touch back, but Sneads rapport with Drew Brees and shares of this offense-friendly climate are enough in a format that really rewards his high-percentage receiving role. -- J.M.#StartSitESPN should i start snead shepard or d.murray?- Skyline R34 (@CaMVPsb50) September 18, 2016Here is a case where Ill side with the tailbacks higher usage floor over the potential upside of a young receiver, as Murray is due a healthy batch of touches after dominating snaps and touches for the Titans backfield last week. -- J.M.Thomas Rawls or Melvin Gordon? #StartSitESPN- Cory Schwengel (@CorySchwengel) September 18, 2016With the training wheels reportedly coming off for Rawls and with ESPNs Sheil Kapadia reporting Russell Wilsons designed runs will be limited with his ankle ailment, lets go with Rawls intriguing upside against a fallible Rams rush defense that just ceded 144 rushing yards between the tackles to the 49ers. -- J.M.Russell wilson or joe flacco? #StartSitESPN- Je suis Natalie (@nataliebvaldes) September 18, 2016Sticking with Wilsons situation, well ride with Russ even with any injury concerns. Wilson practiced in full throughout the week and could still produce huge numbers from the pocket against an exploitable opponent. -- J.M.
