Koerner’s Week 2 Fantasy Football Tiers for Every Position

Sep 16, 2018 9:30 PM EDT
  • Sean Koerner -- the No. 1 in-season fantasy football ranker in 2015, 2016 and 2017 -- takes a detailed look at his Week 2 tiers for every position: quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, defense and kicker.
  • Use the strategies outlined below to build the most optimal starting lineup for your fantasy football team.

Below you’ll find my tiers for Week 2 fantasy football. These are based on standard scoring and cover every position.

As a reminder, these tiers are not updated after publication. If you want my most up-to-date rankings for PPR, Standard and Half-Point PPR leagues, check out this post.

And, yes, my tiers will be part of our Action Network subscription this season. Be sure to check out the awesome special we’re currently running below for an annual sub.


Quarterback

Tier 1
Drew Brees (vs. CLE)
Ben Roethlisberger (vs. KC)

This is one of the more fascinating weeks to project QB in recent memory. With Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers potential “sits” this week, Brees and Big Ben find themselves as my top two QBs. They’re both in absolute smash spots against weaker defenses.
