What to know for fantasy: Roethlisberger He had zero TD passes on 62 attempts before his season ended in Betting nugget: The Broncos have failed to cover their past four games off less than a full week of rest. Matchup must-reads: QB Lock shows his leadership in season-opening loss Steelers' Roethlisberger is sore, but elbow is good after first game After drops, Broncos' Jeudy determined to prove 'failure is growth'.
What to watch for: It's a battle of two relatively inexperienced quarterbacks -- the 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo and the Jets' Sam Darnold 27 career starts each. Garoppolo has done more winning than Darnold , who hasn't had the same talent and coaching around him as his counterpart. How each performs on Sunday will be a difference-maker for two passing offenses looking to get going after Week 1 losses.
Aiyuk is back from a hamstring injury, and after a poor showing for the Niners' receivers last week, he will get plenty of chances to show why coach Kyle Shanahan coveted him in the first round of the NFL draft. Stat to know: San Francisco tight end George Kittle was held to 44 receiving yards on four catches in Week 1.
He hasn't had back-to-back games under 50 yards since Injuries: 49ers Jets. What to know for fantasy: No player in the NFL accounted for a greater percentage of his team's Week 1 scrimmage yards than Jamison Crowder Whether he suits up will be something to keep an eye on. Matchup must-reads: It's hitting us pretty hard right now': Sherman latest 49ers injury If Darnold sputters, Jets will face complex question: Trevor Lawrence? What to watch for: Colts cornerback Xavier Rhodes faces his former team; the Vikings released him in the offseason after seven seasons with the franchise.
Rhodes' debut with the Colts didn't go too well in Week 1 against Jacksonville. He gave up a yard touchdown when he was caught peeking in the backfield, expecting a run. Then he was flagged for yard pass interference, which ended up leading to a field goal for the Jaguars.
Can he improve while trying to contain Minnesota's passing attack? Bold prediction: Vikings receiver Adam Thielen will haul in seven catches for plus yards. It'll be his second straight week crossing the century mark, putting him on his way to matching the historic streak he set in when he started the season with eight straight yard receiving performances.
Stat to know: Colts quarterback Philip Rivers has four passing touchdowns, seven interceptions and a record in four career starts against the Vikings. His Injuries: Vikings Colts. What to know for fantasy: Indianapolis receiver Parris Campbell not only set career highs in routes 38 , targets 9 , catches 6 , yards 71 and fantasy points 14 in Week 1, but he also led the team in deep targets 3.
Betting nugget: The Vikings have covered their past five games after a loss. Matchup must-reads: Life without Diggs? Vikings run out of time to see new reality Colts lose Mack for season with torn Achilles Colts sad for Mack, excited about Taylor Rivers brings turnover problems to Colts in Week 1. What to watch for: Can Packers receiver Davante Adams have another big day after his career-high catch performance in Week 1 against the Vikings?
Well, the Lions' secondary is banged up, and Adams is a tough cover. Bold prediction: Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers throws four more touchdowns this week against Detroit. Rodgers has had just intermittent success against Matt Patricia's Lions, but this is a different Detroit secondary.
Its corners are banged up -- Desmond Trufant and Darryl Roberts both missed practices this week -- and rookie Jeff Okudah might be making his debut. Depending how the Lions match up, that debut could come against Adams. So watch for Rodgers to slice through a depleted Lions secondary. Stat to know: Per the Elias Sports Bureau, only two teams have gone against an opponent in a season without ever holding a lead in regulation.
The first was the 49ers, who bested the Saints twice. The second was the Packers, who won both of their games against Detroit last season on game-ending field goals despite not holding a lead at any point in either game. Injuries: Lions Packers.
What to know for fantasy: Adams was the top scoring player in Week 1 Betting nugget: The Lions have covered in six straight games against the Packers. Matchup must-reads: Why Patricia's team struggles to close out games No tailgating: Lambeau closed to fans Once deep at CB, Lions now thin after injuries facing Rodgers Rodgers-Adams combo rivaling Nelson-Rodgers. What to watch for: The Bucs fell short in their quest to go toe-to-toe with the Saints last week, but since his first career start in , Tom Brady has a career record coming off a loss.
Panthers coach Matt Rhule said it himself: "No one's better at bouncing back from a loss than Tom Brady. Can he rebound from his one-catch performance? And how quickly can a Panthers defense that started four rookies last Sunday make progress in Week 2? Bold prediction: The Panthers will sack Brady at least five times and pull off an upset. They were one of three teams that did not get a sack in their opener and the only team that didn't contact the quarterback while running or throwing.
Rhule says he wants them to get more violent at the point of attack. Stat to know: Both of Brady's interceptions last week came when throwing within 2. He had three such picks in all of Injuries: Panthers Buccaneers. Since then, he has joined Emmitt Smith 23 , Marcus Allen 17 and Todd Gurley 15 as the only running backs to score at least 15 fantasy points in 15 straight games. Matchup must-reads: Anderson hilariously mistakes Panthers mascot for a bear Arians on Favre's critique: Brady and I are 'fine' Rhule takes blame for not calling McCaffrey's number Is it time to reset expectations on Bucs after disappointing start?
Godwin not worried: Bucs learning life with Brady. What to watch for: In two games against the Dolphins in , Bills quarterback Josh Allen completed We should keep an eye on whether that success continues against a revamped Dolphins defense which now includes former Bills edge rusher Shaq Lawson but still gave up rushing yards last week to the Patriots -- including 75 yards to Cam Newton. Bold prediction: The Bills will have two yard receivers on Sunday.
Stat to know: The Dolphins had 87 rushing yards in Week 1, and they had 13 games with fewer than rushing yards last season tied for the most in the NFL with the Jets. Injuries: Bills Dolphins. What to know for fantasy: Allen has thrown multiple touchdown tosses nine times in his career, and he is 4-for-4 against the Dolphins and 5-for against the rest of the NFL.
Betting nugget: The Bills have covered four straight games as the favorite. Matchup must-reads: Early returns exciting for Allen in Bills' revamped passing game Dolphins' defense faces Week 2 test: Stop another QB from running. What to watch for: Titans running back Derrick Henry has tormented the Jaguars to the tune of rushing yards in his past four games against them.
Jacksonville added middle linebacker Joe Schobert in the offseason, allowing Myles Jack to move to his more natural weakside linebacker spot. Pay attention to how the Titans find ways to get Henry to the second level of the defense, and how Jacksonville's linebackers attempt to prevent explosive plays. Bold prediction: Henry doesn't hit yards rushing. The Jaguars are making Henry their top priority -- they might get hurt by the pass game, but they're not going to let Henry beat them again.
Stat to know: Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew has three passing touchdowns in consecutive games dating to last year, and no QB in Jaguars history has thrown at least three in three consecutive games. Injuries: Jaguars Titans. What to know for fantasy: Henry has seven rushing scores over his past three games against the Jags, and the Titans sure weren't shy about handing him the rock in Week 1 31 carries, the only player in the NFL with more than Betting nugget: The Titans have covered five of their past six against the Jaguars.
Matchup must-reads: Jaguars' Henderson thinks great debut could have been even better Titans' Byard can share home-birth story with his son 'for the rest of our days' Minshew and rookies come up big in upset Fourth-quarter comebacks becoming routine for Tannehill, Titans.
What to watch for: The focus is squarely on Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The embattled former second overall pick led Chicago to a memorable fourth-quarter comeback in Week 1, but not even Trubisky's three touchdown passes in the final 15 minutes could cover up for how inconsistent he played in the opening three quarters at Ford Field. Head coach Matt Nagy wants even play from the year-old quarterback. The Giants might present Trubisky with an opportunity to have a more balanced performance on Sunday.
Bold prediction: Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson tops yards receiving. Robinson is not happy with his contract, and what better way to prove he deserves to get paid than to play against the Giants' defense? Robinson's best game last year came against the Giants, when he had yards receiving and a touchdown.
The Bears put him in the slot throughout that game and let him eat. The Giants apparently haven't fixed that problem. JuJu Smith-Schuster caught six passes on six targets for 69 yards and two touchdowns out of the slot against this Giants on Monday night. Stat to know: Giants running back Saquon Barkley had just 6 rushing yards in Week 1 and averaged minus His 3.
Injuries: Giants Bears. What to know for fantasy: New York quarterback Daniel Jones has run for at least 20 yards in five of his past seven games and thrown at least 40 passes in seven of his past nine. Betting nugget: Chicago is ATS in its past seven games as a favorite. Matchup must-reads: Can Giants' Slayton continue to produce like a No. Trubisky leads Bears to comeback. What to watch for: The matchup to watch will be Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray vs. Washington edge rusher Chase Young.
It's a showdown between two of the best young players in the NFL, last year's No. In their respective openers, Murray ran for 91 yards, and Young had 1. While this matchup won't determine the game, it'll definitely have an impact and will be fun to watch. Bold prediction: Washington will hold Murray to 50 yards rushing, and Young will sack him twice. Young can be moved around but had his best success as a right end against Jason Peters last week.
He'll also be used on some stunts inside, and that's where he'll get Murray. But Murray will still throw for yards in a win. Injuries: Washington Cardinals. And since the beginning of last season, Murray ranks 27th in completion percentage when under pressure Betting nugget: The total has gone under in nine of Arizona's past 11 September games. Matchup must-reads: Young, Washington's pass rush 'as advertised' in promising start Hopkins has championship aspirations with Murray as his QB.
Only then-Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston threw more touchdowns on the run last season. Bold prediction: Baltimore's Jackson will rush for at least yards. He showed in Week 1 that he has made great strides as a passer, but let's not forget he's among the league's most dangerous playmakers when scrambling. The Texans have allowed quarterbacks to average 5.
The first week went about as well as could be expected amidst the pandemic, and thus far the league has done a good job with Covid testing. Week 2 got underway on Thursday with the Browns beating the Bengals in a game that was a lot more fun than most of us probably expected. It turned into a shootout, and while the Browns won relatively handily late, they stumbled enough so that Joe Burrow got the Bengals the back-door cover as six-point underdogs.
Last week, I went with my picks , but managed with my five best bets of the weekend. A year ago, I went , finishing with a I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can! Colts -3 over Vikings 49ers
Falcons at Cowboys, 1 p. This should be an aerial slugfest, with quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Dak Prescott using their wealth of receiving options to carve up the field. Pick: Cowboys Bills at Dolphins , 1 p. It feels like the N. Last week, No. Fitzpatrick could easily have another three-interception game, and if that happens, the Tagovailoa chatter should reach a fever pitch.
Pick: Bills Broncos at Steelers , 1 p. Line: Steelers Before they follow that thread too far, they should account for that game having been on the road, and Pittsburgh having balanced the big yardage by intercepting two passes.
Will Steelers running back James Conner be healthy enough to play? Is Pittsburgh significantly weakened on offense by injuries to right tackle Zach Banner and right guard Stefen Wisniewski? Those are big questions, but ones that will be more relevant when the Steelers are playing a better team.
The 49ers have to be fairly devastated at an opening-week loss in a game they led in the fourth quarter, but Arizona has usually given them fits and the result was only a mild surprise. The margin for error in the N. West is razor thin, and San Francisco needs a win when there is a solid chance that the other three teams in the division will all start Panthers at Buccaneers , 1 p. Line: Buccaneers -9 Total: The Panthers made a reckless decision to give the ball to a fullback, rather than Christian McCaffrey, with the game on the line last week, but nothing about either team indicated that a 9-point spread for this game is warranted.
That number becomes especially extreme with Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin expected to be out. Washington Football Team at Cardinals , p. Line: Cardinals The Footballers pulled off a fairly shocking upset of the Eagles in Week 1 thanks to an all-around effort. Pick: Cardinals Lions at Packers , 1 p.
For three quarters last week, it looked like a new era could be dawning for the Lions Then Detroit spent 15 minutes making Mitchell Trubisky look like Aaron Rodgers, restoring balance to the universe. So the big question heading into Sunday: If Trubisky looked like Rodgers against the Lions, what will Rodgers look like?
Pick: Packers Jaguars at Titans , 1 p. Only three quarterbacks had ever completed 95 percent of their passing attempts in a game min. The Titans do teams no such favors. But make no mistake, the Titans should win. Giants at Bears , 1 p. Saying Saquon Barkley of the Giants rushed 15 times for 6 yards last week is a little misleading, since he had a 7-yard run mixed in.
So to put it another way: Other than one carry in which he barely surpassed mediocrity, Barkley ran 14 times for minus-1 yard. In fairness, the Giants were facing a stellar Pittsburgh defense and chose to utilize Barkley more as a receiver, where he picked up 60 yards on six catches. The Bears were awful for three quarters last week, and terrific for one.
If they could improve that to two decent quarters against the Giants, they should get a win at home. Pick: Bears Saints at Raiders , p. The Saints looked a little rusty on offense in Week 1, regardless of the 34 points they scored. In a continuation of a trend that goes back a few years, New Orleans is slowly but surely becoming a team that can rely a bit less on its offense and a great deal more on its defense from week to week. On the road in Las Vegas, New Orleans should be a little concerned.
The Raiders looked extremely capable on offense in an opening-week win, and while their defense is nothing to write home about, it managed to stand Carolina up on the game-deciding drive. Moreover, Minnesota is against the spread after allowing more than 30 points in its previous game. Expect Mike Zimmer's young defense to take a big step forward.
Hammer, who has inside sources throughout the league, also jumped on Falcons vs. Cowboys and Saints vs. In one of those games, Hammer says, the public is completely overreacting to Week 1, creating a spread that's way off. You can only see his best bets at SportsLine. Which side of Cowboys vs.
Falcons and Saints vs. Raiders do you need to jump on? Sep 20, at am ET 2 min read. Chiefs vs. Super Bowl 55 props: Brady goes under
Philly also had impressive metrics despite blowing a point lead. The Eagles had the second-best yards per play differential in the NFL after Week 1 small sample size, but still. Minnesota Vikings at -3 Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.
Mike: Colts. Hilton, Parris Campbell and Nyheim Hines. Ricky: Colts. This matchup will make your head spin, especially with both teams desperately needing a win after disappointing performances in Week 1. Andre: Colts. The Vikings are SU when Cook runs for more than 85 yards in a game during his career. Indy allowed just 4. New York Giants at Mike: Giants. As long as Daniel Jones can avoid another back-breaking pick at the goal line, New York keeps it close. Ricky: Giants.
Give Mitchell Trubisky credit. He took advantage of a depleted Lions secondary last week while overcoming a deficit. Andre: Giants. This is a lot of points. Both of these teams had incredible rush defenses last year, allowing fewer than four yards per carry. Mike: Jets. With the amount of injuries San Fran had entering the season, the first few weeks always were going to be tough.
Ricky: Jets. What Mike said. Andre: Jets. Both of these defenses are solid. Expect a low-scoring game, making it easier for the Jets to cover. Washington Football Team at Mike: Football Team. Could there also be some letdown this week for the Cards? Ricky: Football Team. Probably because the organization had other things to worry about over the offseason.
Andre: Cardinals. Washington averaged 3. Dwayne Haskins stinks Washington also allowed the fifth-most rushing yards to quarterbacks last season. Mike: Ravens. Deshaun Watson was pressured on nearly half his dropbacks in Week 1 against Kansas City, and the Texans converted just four of 10 third downs.
Baltimore, meanwhile, held Cleveland to 3-of on third down, and it was just a year ago the Ravens sacked Watson six times in a blowout. More of the same here. Ricky: Ravens. Not sure anything has really changed with these two teams since last season. If anything, the Texans have gotten worse while the Ravens might be better. Andre: Ravens. Lamar Jackson has 27 touchdowns and just one pick in his last eight regular-season games.
Watson, on the contrary, has seven touchdowns and six picks in his last seven games. Not good. Mike: Chargers. Maybe this is where the Chargers really feel the loss of Derwin James, but that defense still is really good.
I think they give the Chiefs just enough problems to keep it close. Ricky: Chiefs. The talent gap at quarterback Patrick Mahomes vs. Tyrod Taylor is enough to lean Kansas City. The Chiefs are ATS in their last 10 games dating back to last season, winning by an average of Andre: Chargers. Austin Ekeler averaged five yards per carry in two games against the Chiefs last season.
New England Patriots at -4 Seattle Seahawks, p. Mike: Seahawks. If the Seahawks somehow let the Patriots run wild again, shame on them. Ricky: Patriots. The Seahawks have the better quarterback — sorry, Cam — and far more playmakers. Andre: Patriots. Seattle plays in a lot of close games.
Its point win over Atlanta in Week 1 was its first win by more than one possession in 14 consecutive games. Expect another close contest against an elite Patriots defense that will give even a great QB like Wilson fits. The Seahawks also are not great against mobile quarterbacks. They allowed the fourth-most rushing yards to QBs last year, which bodes well for Cam Newton. Mike: Raiders. Although it was against Carolina, the Raiders looked a little feisty last week.
The offense has some weapons, and Jon Gruden is finding his groove. Ricky: Saints. Andre: Saints. This line makes no sense. If you like the Lions, the best line is Need more winning picks?
