If you're 1-0 already, congratulations!

If your fantasy team wasn't quite so lucky in week one, no worries, we got you covered.

Injuries will play a role this week. Please check the latest injury updates before locking in your lineup. Good luck!


New York Giants at Chicago Bears

Game time: 1 p.m. at Soldier Field

Forecast: Sunny, Middle 60s, SE 10-15 mph

OVER/UNDER = 42.0 points

Chicago is favored by 5.5 points.

What you need to know:

  • While the over/under is 42 points, this game could turn into a shootout.
  • Trubisky is a solid streaming option and a DFS bargain.
  • Robinson was in the middle of some early week drama, but he accrued 149 air yards. Anthony Miller is a solid option.
  • Daniel Jones could be under duress for much of this game, and Saquon Barkley may find tough sledding running.
  • Darius Slayton's usage will depend on Golden Tate's availability, and as of this writing, he's practicing.


Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers

Game Time: 1 p.m. at Lambeau Field

Forecast: Sunny and breezy, Middle 60s, SSE 15-25 mph

OVER/UNDER = 49.5 points

Green Bay is favored by 6 points.

What you need to know:

  • Aaron Rodgers and Allen Lazard could be a successful DFS stack. Determining who performs best among MVS and Lazard is a tossup. Aaron Jones is setup to eat and eat well again.
  • The Lions are heavy road dogs, yet this is a plus matchup for Stafford.
  • Golloday is likely to be out of this game, and Cephus could end up being a smart play.
  • Even though D'Andre Swift dropped a critical pass in week one, he was on the field, which is important. Adrian Peterson's ceiling is limited by a lack of involvement in the passing game.

San Francisco 49ers at New York Jets

Game Time: 1 p.m. at MetLife Stadium

Forecast: Sunny, near 60 degrees, NE 10-15 mph

OVER/UNDER = 45 points

San Francisco is favored by 7 points.

What you need to know:

  • This is a potential eruption spot for the 49ers and a chance to get their offense back on track.
  • Garoppolo will be in position for juicy pass plays, and a Garoppolo/Bourne stack could be fruitful.
  • Mostert is an easy RB1 and top 15 running back.
  • San Francisco presents a difficult matchup for the slow-operating Jets offense. You have to wonder how long Adam Gase will keep his job.
  • Crowder would be a clear fantasy play, but he's dealing with a hammy. The development could increase opportunity for TE Herndon.


New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks

Game Time: 8:20 p.m. at Century Link Field

Forecast: Mostly cloudy, possible shower, near 70 degrees, light winds

OVER/UNDER = 45 points

Seattle is favored by 4 points.

What you need to know:

  • New England presents a plus matchup for Russell Wilson, and you hope Brian Schottenheimer allows Russell to throw it as often as week one.
  • A revitalized and reenergized Cam Newton is a must start.
  • Seattle surrendered the 4th most rushing scores last year, which should bode well for a rushing TD or two for Cam.
  • Seattle let Atlanta throw it all over the field last week. Fire up Edelman as a top 30 WR.
