After seeing quite a bit of value at the quarterback position to start the season, the pricing at quarterback has become tighter for week 2. Pick two quarterbacks who will be great value in week 2 and explain your reasoning. Who do you see failing to perform up to expectations?
Phil Alexander: I'll double down on my Week 1 Russell Wilson love by going back to him at home against the 49ers. Wilson's offensive line is an obvious weakness, but the 49ers young defensive front has yet to prove they can exploit it. Vegas has Seattle with a 28 point implied team total, which is tied with the Falcons for the highest on the slate and they're favored to win by nearly two touchdowns at home. If Wilson fails in this spot, it's time to alter his rest-of-season projections.
In terms of points per dollar, it's tough to ignore Blake Bortles, who costs $100 less than Dallas backup Cooper Rush on DraftKings. Doug Marrone followed through on his promise to limit Bortles' pass attempts in Week 1, but the game script set up perfectly for him to do so. The Jaguars defense has a much tougher challenge against Tennessee this week, which should necessitate Bortles to throw more in a plus matchup. It's hard to imagine Bortles not getting you at least the 13 points he needs to 3x his salary in cash games.
