Whether you’re 1-0 or 0-1, the march to fantasy football championships continues with Week 2 and being diligent about in-season management.

To help you start making your start/sit decisions, I’ve outlined the early version of my Week 2 fantasy rankings into tiers so you can better visualize the drop-off in expected production at each position.

There will be a ton of volatility until kickoff, though, so be sure to check my updated rankings before making final decisions. I’ll also publish an updated version of these tiers before Sunday afternoon games kickoff, but for now, let’s dive into the initial version of my Week 2 tiers below!

Fantasy Rankings & Tiers

Jump To
QB | RB | WR | TE | K | DEF

QUARTERBACKS

Tier 1

Kyler Murray (vs. MIN)
Lamar Jackson (vs. KC)
Josh Allen (@ MIA)
Patrick Mahomes (@ BAL)
Russell Wilson (vs. TEN)

Tier 2

Tom Brady (vs. ATL)
Justin Herbert (vs. DAL)
Dak Prescott (@ LAC)
Jalen Hurts (vs. SF)
Aaron Rodgers (vs. DET)

Tiers 1-2 feature must-start QBs who are matchup-proof. Many of them have favorable matchups

Tier 3

Ryan Tannehill (@ SEA)
Matthew Stafford (@ IND)

I expect Ryan Tannehill to have a bounce-back game this week against Seattle. However, if he struggles again, it would be fair to wonder if Arthur Smith’s departure was something we all overlooked heading into 2021.
