Week 2: Peterson On Top - 17 comments

By Nick Hopkins

Welcome to Week 2 of the Cafe’s weekly player rankings, Start & Sit! Last week the headlines were dominated by some familiar names. Adrian Peterson proved why he was everyone’s #1 pick by rushing for 180 yards and three touchdowns. Drew Brees dominated the Lions to the tune of 358 yards and 6 touchdowns. Reggie Wayne led all receivers with 162 yards and a touchdown as the Colts squeaked by Jacksonville. But Week 2 is a new week, and with it comes a whole new set of rankings… So let’s get to it! (Side note: I’d like to apologize for recommending Carson Palmer and Eddie Royal last week… they burned me as well. Ugh.)

And of course, a big thank you again to all of our rankers and compilers, especially funatic ,whose hard work really helped to speed the compiling process, and R.J. White (daullaz) who makes this whole thing happen.

Sunday Update: Wes Welker, Antonio Bryant, Jamaal Charles, Bo Scaife and Kevin Walter are out. Set your lineups accordingly.

In 2009, we’re ranking all the players we expect could see a significant amount of game action each week. We factor in a player’s overall ability, his weekly matchup, and the current status of his health. The result is one Start/Sit number, based on a scale of 100, and we’ll use each member’s ratings to find an average for each player. The higher a guy is on our list, the better you should feel starting him.

Start: Brett Favre, Minnesota Vikings. Favre had a respectable game in his debut with the Vikings, although Adrian Peterson did all the heavy lifting. That will probably be the case again this week against Detroit, which means that Favre probably won’t be one of the best starters available, but he should at least be safe. If a solid day of around 200 yards and a score or two sounds good to you, go ahead and plug Brett into your lineup. (And remember, Detroit did manage to put up some points last week against New Orleans, meaning the Saints could keep passing, and Brees ended up with six touchdown passes… So there is some upside for Favre as well)
 
Sit: Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears. Maybe this seems reactionary,  but Cutler’s four interception day against the Packers didn’t exactly inspire confidence. Cutler is a good quarterback, but the Bears do not have the receivers that Cutler had to work with in Denver. I think Cutler will eventually get it together, but he’s a very risky start against a Steeler defense that, with or without Polamalu, is one of the best in the NFL.

Start: Clinton Portis, Washington Redskins. Portis started off his season with a solid, but not terribly exciting 62 yard performance against the New York Giants. Outside of a 34 yard run early in the game, Portis was pretty much bottled up. Still, Head Coach Jim Zorn was committed to the running game, and if he takes that same mentality into this game with the Rams, the Redskins’ running game should find more success. The Skins will be looking to avenge last year’s home loss to the Rams, in which Portis ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns.
 
Sit: Willie Parker, Pittsburgh Steelers. Last week’s game against the Titans didn’t exactly look like the Steelers of the recent past, with Big Ben throwing 43 times to Parker’s 13 carries (5 and 4 carries went to backups Mewelde Moore and Rashad Mendenhall, respectively). That’s not a good ratio for Fast Willie Parker, especially considering he only gained 16 yards on the 13 carries he had. It looks like the Steelers’ offensive line may have trouble opening holes for the running game this year, and it won’t get much easier this week against Chicago, even without their star linebacker Brian Urlacher.

Start: Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers. While Steve Smith and the rest of the Panthers’ passing attack looked pretty hopeless against the Eagles last week, I wouldn’t write them off quite yet. Smith is the type of play-making wide receiver that doesn’t need everything to work perfectly in order to break a play for a big gain. A game against a division rival, coming off a big loss, seems like the perfect situation for a big game from the small receiver.
 
Sit: Antonio Bryant, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Most people assumed that Bryant would have difficulty replicating his huge 2008 season this year, due to Tampa Bay’s quarterback situation. Two catches in Week 1 did nothing to change that view, and now it seems as though Bryant is being held out of practice with a lingering knee issue, bringing his availability for Week 2 into question. Leave Bryant on your bench this week.

Start: John Carlson, Seattle Seahawks. Carlson remained somewhat under the radar after a fantastic rookie year (627 yards, 5 TDs) but he picked up right where he left off in Week 1, catching six passes and scoring two touchdowns. He seems like he could be reinvigorated QB Matt Hasselback’s favorite receiver, and should have another good game this week against the 49ers.
 
Sit: Ben Watson, New England Patriots. Yes, I know he scored twice last week in the Patriots’ last minute comeback against Buffalo. But Watson has never been known for his consistency. He could have another good game, but it is just as likely he catches one or two passes for negligible yardage. All I’m saying is don’t necessarily rush to pick him up/ get him in your lineup if you have a reliable starter already.

Start: Rob Bironas, Tennessee Titans. Bironas had a tough week against the Steelers, missing two field goals. This is very uncharacteristic for one of the league’s best kickers, and I have to think he will be better against the Texans this week.
 
Sit: Matt Prater, Denver Broncos. Prater has a strong leg, but Denver’s offense is going to have to improve for him to get enough opportunities to be considered a starter. A young kicker in an inconsistent offense is not a great combination.

Start: Green Bay Packers. The Packer defense was all over the field on Sunday Night, picking off Chicago’s Jay Cutler four times and sacking him twice. Next, they welcome a Bengal offense, that struggled (to say the least) last week, to the unfriendly confines of Lambeau Field. OchoCinco has promised a Lambeau Leap if he scores on Sunday… I think we may be just as likely to see that maneuver performed by a Packer defender.
 
Sit: Carolina Panthers. To be fair to this Panther defense, they did not play as badly against the Eagles as the 38-10 score would indicate. When you turn the ball over seven times it is going to be hard to keep the other team from scoring. However, a game in Atlanta against Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White, and Tony Gonzalez is not going to be an easy test either. Look for a better option than the Panthers this week.

    I think you have Cutler down too far. Kerry Collins did fairly well against PIT week 1 and Cutler should bounce back this weekend at home vs. PIT – that’s my call this weekend. Cutler will finally hook up with Olsen and continue with Benett… PIT is in for a shocker this weekend. I see this as an air match between the QBs and Cutler will have the edge over Big Ben.

    I see that you have fellas like McFadden and Ronnie Brown ranked ahead of Slaton for this weekend, but the entire HOU offense looked disrupted last week against an admittedly improved Rex Ryan NYJ defense. Yes, he fumbled, but last year Slaton had two very good games against TENN, and without the aid of Albert Haynesworth helping to clog the middle, I believe that Slaton will have a true “bounce-back” performance.

    Could happen, reason. Maybe 19 is a little low. I still wouldn’t feel confident starting him this week though, that’s for sure. I could see both teams going to the pass earlier – the Bears certainly didn’t seem hesitant to throw last week despite little success and the Steelers just aren’t all that good running the ball. I’m not quite sure either of these teams are built for a shoot-out though. We’ll see…

    As for Slaton, I like the guy a lot, but I think Tennessee is still pretty tough against the run. They are every bit as good as the Jets, even without Haynesworth. Still, at 16 its not like he’s even ranked all that low…

    I have Slaton riddin’ the pine this week. I believe it is an accurate rating for Slaton this week (although I hate to admit it because he was my second pick in my draft). With the addition of Schaub’s #2 reciever back from injury (probable), Tenn will be forced to respect the air attack and give Slaton room. He is only riddin’ the pine this week because McFadden is going to Desimate? the Chiefs!

    Yeah, it’s imperfect science. Summing things into 3 categories and calculating isn’t going to be that accurate. But it’s better than arbitrary ratings. As a ranker, at this point in the season I tried to start by ranking matchups based on last week’s performance, and then after that I went back through to try to adjust what I thought were anomalous. For example, I don’t think the Browns will be a top 3 passing defense this year. I still gave them more credit than they deserve, IMO, because it’s just as arbitrary to knock it down on a gut feeling.

    Re: Julius and LJ, looking at the charts we used, I believe it comes down to matchups. Part of it is a “who you performed against last week” and part of it is reduced expectations. It will be tempered with this season’s results. It’s why the first few weeks are the hardest.

    You guys (those who don’t know this) can all get involved in ranking if you want. It helps the site, it helps FF players, and it makes a really cool resource. It’s good to be a part of it.

    Exactly… and the more rankers we get, the more accurate it should end up being. Theoretically, at least. :)

  14. Hey guys,

    Not a criticism – just a question. I’m just wondering why you don’t have Johnny Knox (CHI) somewhere in your WR listing. He’s scored well in both of the first 2 weeks – better than many of those that made the list. So well, in fact, that there’s talk he could get become a starter. And have you watched this guy run his routes? He’s sharp as a knife. This guy’s hungry. I have him starting in front of at least 3 of the receivers in this current list.

    Spoke to a fellow from Chicago just this morning and he agrees with you about Johnny Knox (WR-Chi). Personally, I plan on watching him for a few more games just to see how he and Cutler work out. I’ve also noticed that Santana Moss (WR-Wash) and Donnie Avery (WR-StL) are being dropped in a lot of leagues. That’s cool–one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure and I’ve been picking them both up whenever I can. :-)

    This list came out before the second week’s game (hence the Week 2), and many of us didn’t think enough of him to rank him after Week 1. Now we know, and I’m sure he’ll show up on everyone’s list for Week 3.
