Week 2: Start 'Em

Though these players might normally be on your fantasy bench, they might be worth starting this week. This week's picks include Alfred Morris, Brandon Gibson, Stephen Hill, Lance Moore, and Andre Roberts.


Robinson was drafted in 2011, but failed to register any stats. This season the Skins plan to try and get him involved in the offense. When Pierre Garcon left the game with an injury, it was Robinson who came in and took over and led the Skins in targets with 6. He finished the game with 4 catches for 52 yards and 1 touchdown. While I wouldn't expect this kind of production every week (especially with a rookie QB), Robinson might be a good occasional starter depending on match up and injuries...like this upcoming week. If Garcon sits out next week or isn't back to 100% healthy, you might want to consider starting Robinson as a flex.


If you're in a league that starts TEs and/or Flex then Bennett might be your guy. In the past few seasons Eli Manning made Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard (two lesser known, less talented TEs) relevant in the fantasy world. Bennett has superior talent over those other two and should be in line for a very solid season. While he will never be mistaken for Gronk or Graham or Hernandez, he has all the tools to finish somewhere in the top 10 TEs. In his first regular season game, Bennett was able to show some of what might be in store, catching 4 passes for 40 yards and 1 touchdown. I would definitely start Bennett in TE league and most likely use him as a flex as well.


Everyone wondered if the fact that Fleener played in college with Andrew Luck would help him make an immediate impact. Well, if week 1 is any indication, Fleener is in for a very good rookie season and worthy of starting as a TE and or flex in most leagues. Fleener was targeted an amazing 10 times in his first regular season game, catching 6 of them for 82 yards. While he won't likely see that many targets on a weekly basis, he can still be very productive as Luck's security blanket, putting up good numbers weekly starting with week 2. If you have to start a TE, he makes for a good option; in deep leagues he's even worthy of consideration for starting as a flex.
