NFL training camps are in full swing with league-wide preseason action ready to commence later this week. Better still, the official start of the regular season is a little more than a month away, which means this is a perfect time to update Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Big Board.
Week 2 was finally the week where we saw elite production from the top fantasy tight ends. Both Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce had huge games for their fantasy owners. But then again that’s why you drafted them so high in the first place.
It seemed like was just yesterday that fantasy football season started, but here we are already with the wide receiver rankings for Week 3. The position doesn’t seem to the dominant force in the early going it has been in recent seasons.
Le’Veon Bell continues to be ranked as the No. 1 running back as we prepare for Week 3 of the fantasy football season, but his grip on the top spot is loosening. You could easily make a case for Kareem Hunt, Jay Ajayi, or Ezekiel Elliott to be No. 1 this week.
While some defense/special teams (DST) are proving to be solid options for fantasy football owners, others are slowly becoming a bust. DSTs like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Detroit Lions were the top scorers (depending on league) for Week 2, while the Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers didn't make the top 10.
It was another solid week for my Daily Fantasy Football (DFS) lineup picks so hopefully I can get keep the momentum going as we enter Week 3. This week we have some high-scoring games on tap according to Vegas and these contests always lead to some fantasy goodness.
Week 2 of the fantasy football season is upon us, and plenty of players that will affect fantasy owners are on the injury report this week. David Johnson owners are likely already painfully aware that they will be without their (likely) No. 1 draft pick until November at the earliest.
