Justin: Joique Bell, RB, Detroit Lions
Bell had a stellar Week 1 racking up 92 total yards and two touchdowns. The problem is Bell is not the guy; Reggie Bush is the guy. Bell may record a few yards through the air, but those touchdown totals will be hard to repeat. He is not a starting fantasy player outside the deepest of PPR-format leagues.
David: Anquan Boldin, WR, San Francisco 49ers
Yes I know, Boldin was virtually unstoppable in Week 1 on his way to 13 receptions for 208 yards and 1 touchdown. But has Green Bay’s pass defense ever been that great? Boldin also has a knack for exploding on the scene when he joins a new team (10 catches, 217 yards, 2 touchdowns in Cardinals debut; seven catches, 110 yards in Ravens debut).
I’m not saying that his age will catch up to him this early in the season, but the fast and large cornerbacks of the Seahawks certainly will. He may still have a decent stat line, but temper your expectations for this week.
