Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Russell Wilson to start Week 2

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

It seems like everyday we have a new story coming out of Seattle. Anyways, Russell Wilson will be starting on Sunday after spraining his ankle against the Dolphins. As of now, we have Wilson ranked as our QB9 against the Rams, mainly because we are thinking his dual-threat abilities will be limited due to the ankle. He’s still a must-start — considering the Rams made Blaine Gabbert look like Cam Newton  — but we are wary about him being a top three fantasy quarterback. With Thomas Rawls getting the start, expect a lot of handoffs and passes to Rawls and Doug Baldwin.

“From the looks of Thursday’s practice, Rob Gronkowski certainly isn’t 100 percent. At this point, with one practice left in the week, it appears that the Patriots could be without their star tight end for the second week in a row.”

It looks like Rob Gronkowski will sit out Week 2. He was at practice on Thursday, but as his teammates were running routes, Gronk was off to the side mimicking blocking motions. Since the Patriots have a game on Sunday and then face the Texans at home on Thursday night, I would expect the team to hold out the tight end until at least Week 4. Even though the Patriots looked good against the Cardinals, Jimmy Garoppolo still needs the best tight end in the game to successfully go 4-0.  It will be interesting to see how Garoppolo does now that the Dolphins can game plan for him — especially without his biggest weapon.

“It aids in everything you do offensively,” Doug Pederson said. “He’s such a powerful back. . . . To keep feeding a guy like Ryan [Mathews], he’s so powerful and punishing that it’s going to take a toll defensively.”

This was a great piece on Ryan Mathews and how the Eagles plan on leaning on him this season. Both Pederson and Mathews noted his physical running style which has led to numerous injuries in the past, but his main goal this season is to be healthy for all 16 games. Out of his six seasons in the league, he has been healthy for 14-plus games only twice, but he did crack the 1,000 yard mark in both of those seasons. Our guy GWS is telling you to sell high on Mathews, but with the amount of volume he’s expected to get, I think it would be tough to sell him right now.

Quick Hits:

  • The Raider$ were approved a public funding plan to build a 750 million dollar stadium. Helllllo Vegas.
  • Julio Jones (ankle) was limited at Thursday’s practice
  • The Rams are working on a contract extension with Jeff Fisher, lol
  • Demaryius Thomas (hip) was limited at Thursday’s practice, after not looking too good on Wednesday
