New York Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Zero, that is the number of touchdowns that the New York Jets' (0-1) first-team offense scored in the entire preseason.
Then the offense comes out and blows up for 48 points in a Week 1 blowout victory over the Buffalo Bills.
Mark Sanchez threw for three touchdowns and 266 yards, this week Sanchez and the Jets' offense will come back down to earth.
Tim Tebow was a non-factor in Week 1 and will be another non-factor in Week 2 and should not be on your roster.
Shonn Greene recorded 27 carries for 94 yards an unimpressive yards per carry average (3.5 ypc).
He did get it in to the end zone but that was against a Buffalo Bills defense that looked lost much of the first half.
The Steelers' defense knows how to shut down the run as good as anyone in the league. If you have Shonn Greene, you can find better options.
Santonio Holmes is having a hard time becoming relevant in this New York Jets offense and will continue to struggle all season and is not better than a No. 3 WR.
Stephen Hill had a breakout type performance in his first regular season game of his NFL career reeling in two touchdowns. Don't expect that from Hill again this week.
Dustin Keller will not play in Week 2 and should not be owned in fantasy leagues.
Good Starts: N/A
Middle of the road: Mark Sanchez, Santonio Holmes
Bad starts: Shonn Greene, Stephen Hill, Tim Tebow, Dustin Keller
The Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1) were involved in last week's best game on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos.
With the lack of a true No. 1 RB, Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers have opened up the playbook plenty and throwing it all over the field.
Darrelle Revis is out this week, that is a huge boost to Roethlisberger's Week 2 fantasy value.
Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman, Chris Rainey, Antonio Brown and Baron Batch. Who?
Yes, Baron Batch. All these guys received at least one rush during the team's Week 1 contest. None of these guys can be played with confidence due to lack of touches.
Mike Wallace caught a touchdown pass on four receptions for only 37 yards. Wallace should have Cromartie on him as the Jets try to put speed on speed.
With Cromartie busy with Wallace, Antonio Brown will have the team's usual third corner back on him, a matchup Brown can win most of the time.
Big week ahead for Mr. Brown. Emmanuel Sanders is hard to trust while Wallace and Brown are healthy.
Heath Miller had 4-50-1 and looked decent but it is hard to pick him up as a fourth option on the offense.
Good starts: Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace
Middle of the road: N/A
Bad starts: Jonathan Dwyer, Heath Miller, Isaac Redman, Emmanuel Sanders
