Don't start Mark Sanchez over Matt Schaub this week, don't think about trading Steven Jackson for Julius Jones, and most of all, don't panic. I know that's not the advice that many of you want to hear, but that's really the tone of this week, as so many people who lost in Week 1 have designs on turning their roster over. Sure, some of you got walloped in Week 1. One of my teams, a decent one at that, had its score nearly tripled. Now I'm the laughingstock of the league. Of course, some of those same players who laid a collective egg will be just fine in Week 2 and beyond. The point is, when it comes my decision-making at this point for roster moves and the weekly rankings, I can tell you I remain conservative. I'm going to give Matt Forte a few more chances, trust me.
The much-awaited ESPN Fantasy weekly rankings are up for Week 2 and as always I have some thoughts on the trends I saw and took part in.
