Weekend Recap: Week 2

And oh what a week it was. Drama, controversy, and records—all in one game! (I'm talking about the Denver/San Diego game for those who are sitting at their computers with blank stares.) Who were this weeks studs and duds? Let's recap, shall we? - Eli Manning looked great Sunday. Much better than Week 1. Of course, this was against the Rams, so don't put too much stock into it. - The only Rams WR you should own is Torry Holt. He had 6 receptions; the rest of Rams' wide receivers? Just four. - David Garrard had three interceptions last year. He has three two weeks into this season. Looks like he isn't so dependable anymore. - Kerry Collins means good news for fantasy owners. He made a WR relevant (Justin Gage), something Vince Young could never do, and Chris Johnson rushed for over 100 yards. It looks like he could be the real deal. - Some thought Carson Palmer would struggle this year, but did anybody think he'd be this bad? 134 yards and 2 INT's Sunday. A whopping three fantasy points in two weeks. Palmer owners everywhere collectively ugh. - So much for Aaron Rodgers folding under the Brett Favre pressure. Even if it was against the Lions, he looked very impressive. Almost a little ... dare I say it ... Favre like? - In Oakland, who needs quarterbacks? Just run, run, run with Run DMC. (Oh yes, the pun was intended.) - Note to Kansas City: Take the Raiders approach. Seriously, why isn't LJ getting the ball more often? [Ed's Note: That LJ love isn't looking to great thus far, Alex.] - Although he's only played one game, Brandon Marshall is leading the league in receptions with 18. Don't expect an 18 catch performance every week, but he should be a big factor in Denver's passing attack. - Miami's pass defense is worse than terrible. Not that that is breaking news or anything. - Matt Cassel was solid in real life, but wasn't anything special for fantasy. Time share in New England? Laurence Maroney got hurt and missed a good chunk of the game, so Sammy Morris and LaMont Jordan jumped on the chance, rushing for a TD and 62 yards respectively.
